Whom the heaven must receiveuntil the times of restitution of all things, which God hath spoken by the mouth of all his holy prophets since the world began.
Acts 3:21
KNOWING THE FATHER
Study to show thyself approved unto God,a workman that needeth not to be ashamed,rightly dividing the word of truth.
2 Timothy 2:15

KNOWING THE FATHER
 
2COR 3:18
But we all, with open face beholding as in a glass the gloryof the Lord,
are changed into the same image
from glory to glory,
even
as
by the Spirit of the Lord.
So we can be changed into the image we behold.
JON 4:22
Ye worship ye know not what;
we know what we worship
;for salvation is of the Jews.
Jesus speaking to the Samaritan woman at Jacob’s well, (the Samaritanswere professed believers of the one true God?) (PK567) (DA402)
ACT 17:22,23
Then Paul stood in the midst of Mars' Hill, and said,[Ye] men of Athens, I perceive that in all things ye are too superstitious.For as I passed by, and beheld your devotions, I found an altar with thisinscription, TO THE UNKNOWN GOD. Whom therefore ye ignorantlyworship, him declare I unto you.
“Mars Hill = the Areopagus” 
God is not pleased with us worshiping an unknown God. He wants usto love and worship Him with an understanding of who He is and what His character is like, so we may truly know who we are worshiping. God wants us to have this knowledge for our own good and salvation.
Unknown worship can be devil worship.
 
1Cor 10:20 Deu 32:16,17.
2COR 4:1-6
Therefore seeing we have this ministry, as we havereceived mercy, we faint not; But have renounced the hidden things of dishonesty, not walking in craftiness, nor handling the word of Goddeceitfully; but by manifestation of the truth commending ourselves toevery man’s conscience in the sight of God.
But if our gospel be hid,it is hid to them that are lost
: In whom the
god of this world hathblinded the minds of them which believe not
, lest the light of theglorious gospel of 
Christ, who is the image of God
, should shine untothem. For we preach not ourselves, but Christ Jesus the Lord; andourselves your servants for Jesus’ sake.
For God, who commandedthe light to shine out of darkness, hath shined in our hearts, to
give
the light of the knowledge of the glory of God in the face of Jesus Christ.

THE FATHER’S LIGHT
JN 1:4
In him was life; and the life was the light of men.1:5 And the light shineth in darkness; and the darknesscomprehended it not.1:6 There was a man sent from God, whose name [was] John.1:7 The same came for a witness, to bear witness of the Light, that all[men] through him might believe.1:8 He was not that Light, but [was sent] to bear witness of that Light.1:9 [That] was the true Light, which lighteth every man that comethinto the world.
JN 8:12
I am the light of the world.
(Jesus speaking)
1SM 402
As we read of Luther, Knox, and other noted Reformers, weadmire the strength, fortitude, and courage possessed by these faithfulservants of God, and we would catch the spirit that animated them. Wedesire to know from what source they were out of weakness madestrong. Although these great men were used as instruments for God,they were not faultless. They were erring men, and made greatmistakes. We should seek to imitate their virtues, but we should notmake them our criterion. These men possessed rare talents to carryforward the work of the Reformation. They were moved upon by apower above themselves; but it was not the men, the instruments thatGod used, that should be exalted and honored, but the Lord Jesus wholet His light and power come upon them. Let those who love truth andrighteousness, who gather up the hereditary trusts given to thesestandard-bearers, praise God, the Source of all light. {1SM 402.2}….the Lord Himself has come to reflect upon men the light of heaven.He has announced Himself as one with the Father, full of grace andtruth, God manifest in the flesh. {1SM 402.3}
1JN 1:5
This then is the message which we have heard of him, anddeclare unto you, that God is light, and in him is no darkness at all.1:6 If we say that we have fellowship with him, and walk in darkness,we lie, and do not the truth:1:7 But if we walk in the light, as he is in the light, we have fellowshipone with another, and the blood of Jesus Christ his Son cleanseth usfrom all sin.
