To know the Lord, simply humble yourself, and with a tender conscience look at the Ten Commandments. Have you ever lied, stolen, blasphemed, looked with lust (adultery of the heart), etc. Then judge yourself—are you guilty or innocent? Would you go to heaven or hell? Then look to the cross—God in the person of Jesus Christ took your punishment upon Himself, paying your fine so that you could leave the courtroom. Through His death and resurrection, you can have everlasting life, if you will repent (something the hypocrite fails to do) and trust the Savior. The minute you do so, you will come to know the Lord (see John 14:21 for details).
1 Samuel 2:12 Now the sons of Eli were sons of Belial; they knew not the Lord.
