WHAT DID JESUS TEACH THEN? WHAT DOES HE TEACH US TODAY?
A LESSON TO HEED AN IMPORTANT FOREWARNING
The passage below are the conclusive words of Jesus in His Sermon on the Mount.
“Not everyone who says to Me, ‘Lord, Lord,’ will enter the kingdom of heaven, but he who does the will of My Father who is in heaven will enter. Many will say to Me on that day, ‘Lord, Lord, did we not prophesy in Your name, and in Your name cast out demons, and in Your name perform many miracles?’ And then I will declare to them, ‘I never knew you; DEPART FROM ME, YOU WHO PRACTICE LAWLESSNESS.’
What type of persons are they who easily say ‘Lord, Lord’ but yet God will deny them entry into His kingdom?
What type of persons who make claims that they ‘prophesy’ or ‘cast out demons’ or ‘perform many miracles’ all in God’s name but yet Jesus would say ‘I never knew you’?
Here is a clue…
Matthew 7:21-23 is a picture of Judgement Day. It is said that everyone who will stand before this ultimate judgement seat will truly know their guilt and will also truly know Who will stand before them as Judge.
Now, you are still living today. So, it is safe to say that Jesus desires you to be saved from Judgement Day. How?
The answer is in the passage above.
DOES HE KNOW YOU?
