Knowing יהוה is dependent on an ongoing obedience toward Him or else you become spiritually blind. Something fundamental is meant by the term commandments – commandment in the covenant that the Son enacted. Not just the love command as the Church teaches and not a Levitical, rabbinic interpretation of Torah either. Covenant Torah – the Book of the Covenant Torah!
First John 3:1 Behold what manner of ahava Abba has bestowed on us, that we should be called b’nai vuvh! Therefore the olam hazeh does not know us, because it did not know Him.
First John 4:1 Beloved Yisrael, do not believe every ruach, but test all the ruachim, whether they are of vuvh; because many false neviim have gone out into the olam hazeh.
