Isa 52:4-6 For thus says the Lord GOD:
“My people went down at first Into Egypt to dwell there; Then the Assyrian oppressed them without cause. 5 Now therefore, what have I here,” says the LORD, “That My people are taken away for nothing? Those who rule over them Make them wail,”[a] says the LORD, “And My name is blasphemed continually every day. 6 Therefore My people shall know My name; Therefore they shall know in that day That I am He who speaks: ‘Behold, it is I.’”

Some can wonder what is knowing Christ. How do I know that I knew Him?
It is like a process of a child growing up. When we are born again, we are like an infant. The infants knew only its mother, because she feeds that baby when it is hungry. Likewise, many Christians are now with us at this stage. Whenever they need something then they look at Christ to satisfy that need. When they are stuck in an issue, then they look at Him. They somehow knew that Jesus Christ can solve their problem through their parents or by their brought up or someone who shared the gospel to them. However, God still feeds those infants every time. Those who turn to God and see Him as their God when there is a need or trouble are in this stage. Do they know Christ at this stage? Yes they do. A baby vaguely knows its mother for a while until he/she recognizes the face of its mother.
There are two things here: God always shows Himself or reveals Himself to those who seek Him, whatever stage they may be. Secondly, the infant should seek the giver of food. Whether you are infant or grown up, the first thing is to know Jesus Christ as your Lord and God. When you know Jesus Christ as your Lord, He will take you to the next level. May God enable you to grow in His knowledge and be mature to work in His kingdom. Amen.
