Draw near or closer unto GOD and HE will draw near to you. You can only know GOD through HIS Word. It is only the Word of GOD which is inspired and written by The HOLY GHOST you can use to know the truth about God. We are meant to follow the Word of GOD not the word of men. No man on earth has a deep knowledge of God and HIS ways except HIS WORD which is the Bible. And The HOLY SPIRIT is the only teacher of GOD’s Word. Rely on Him.
