It is possible to know God personally...
Jesus Christ died and conquered death for you
We deserve death and judgment, but Jesus took upon Himself the punishment for our sins, so that we could have a personal relationship with God.
"For there is one God and one mediator between God and men, the man Christ Jesus." (1 Timothy 2:5)
Jesus is the way to God
"Jesus answered, "I am the way and the truth and the life. No one comes to the Father except through me." (John 14:6)
Does this make sense to you?
Still it's not enough just to know this...
