Matthew 7:21-23 “Not everyone who says to Me, ‘Lord, Lord,’ shall enter the kingdom of heaven, but he who does the will of My Father in heaven. (Repent from sin and dead religious works & receive Jesus as Lord and Savior)
22 Many will say to Me in that day, ‘Lord, Lord, have we not prophesied in Your name, cast out demons in Your name, and done many wonders in Your name?’ (They did works of religion and some very impressive)
23 And then I will declare to them, ‘I never knew you; depart from Me, you who practice lawlessness!’ (These are not people who lost their salvation but people who did religious works and never came into a personal relationship with Jesus through Salvation)
Do not hold on to your religion like it’s your political party!
A bad choice will last longer than a four-year term.
Always remember your eternity depends on it!
Make sure your religion lines up with God’s Word (the Bible). If it does not line up change your religion or denomination immediately – remember your eternity depends on it!
DID I LOSE MY SALVATION?
The key words in this verse are “I never knew you!” This is not a verse that says these Christians who are truly born again are losing their salvation. I know many who teach this! This would then mean, Jesus knew you and paid for your sins and now is turning his back on you. This verse clearly states “I never knew you!” Then who is Jesus talking about? He is talking about people who practice religious Christianity, those who do religious works in the name of Jesus but have never been saved by His blood at Calvary. They may have joined a so-called Christian Church, been baptized and or received sacraments, joined the church and do good works including some very spectacular things, but they have never been born-again and received forgiveness at the cross.
Do Not Let This BE YOU! Get saved according to the Bible and the words of Jesus!
