Dickson-zimbabwe's comment on 2014-01-22 01:14:00:

I think this is refering to the intimacy relationship with God, deep understand of Him.Remember God is not happy about ox and donkeys knowing the owner more us people knowing him.Actually God was angry that the ox and the donkey had the best knowledge about their owner.

Literally it means people have got to shift to a better level of knowing God and even to know our source as christians. That's why the bible talks about the parteking at the Lord's table and devil's table.
This goes a long way of giving God his position as God in your life and consider him as Lord rather than a partial knowledge of him.

God bless you

When catastrophies and trouble hit a nation, all we hear is "it is that group's fault, it's global warming's fault, it's Bush's fault". The sad thing is, the very same words are said among christian. They do not know and have not considered that it could be our lack of repentance and bowing our knee is prayer as America did years ago when trouble came to the county. A call for prayer and repentance was sent out. God saw that we acknowledged Him and blessed our land. It is not so today. We are wise in our own conceits. God is calling for repentance, not just in America but worldwide.
