You will soon come to know. You will soon get to know.

First, come to and get to mean to start to do? If that's so, I'm wondering if there is any difference between "come to" and "get to". Any help would be really appreciated.

    They don't mean "start to" but rather "finish by knowing". You will soon come to the result where you know.

    There's no difference between the two examples, except that come is rather more elegant than get.
