Knowledge (Webster's Dictionary) - a clear and certain perception of that which exists, or of truth and fact; the perception of the connection and agreement, or disagreement and repugnancy of our ideas.
We can have no knowledge of that which does not exist. God has a perfect knowledge of all his works. Human knowledge is very limited, and is mostly gained by observation and experience.
Understanding GOD's WORDS is the key that will unlock knowledge.
Proverbs 8:9 (Amplified Bible)
8:9 They are all plain to him who understands [and opens his heart], and right to those who find knowledge [and live by it].

He lived his life doubting the LORD, he needs to see first then he will believe. But faith lifestyle says, believe first then you will see.
