I woke up this morning with Matthew 7:23 repeating over and over so that resulted in today's post... (no cute little flowers today!)
There are a few verses in the Bible that really scare me... Matthew 7:21is one of them:
If you read it in context it is even worse!
21 “Not everyone who says to me, ‘Lord, Lord,’ will enter the kingdom of heaven, but only the one who does the will of my Father who is in heaven. 22 Many will say to me on that day, ‘Lord, Lord, did we not prophesy in your name and in your name drive out demons and in your name perform many miracles?’ 23 Then I will tell them plainly, ‘I never knew you. Away from me, you evildoers!’
Then there's the whole chapter of Matthew 25.
Basically, just saying a prayer, and going to church every Sunday IS NOT ENOUGH! That's what scares me... to think that there are folks that believe that is enough. You will know you are saved IF YOU DO THE WILL OF THE FATHER! Find out what His will is.... You have to know what God's will is in order to do it... Seek that and DO IT!
The thing that most concerns me now is so many people that call themselves Christian (and believe they are) but they act like, and are friends, with the world! NOT OK!!! Read James 4:4. Christians sin on purpose! God hates sin and if you continually choose to sin, and it is a choice, you KNOW when you sin....you might want to reevaluate your salvation. Don't ask another person, read the Word yourself and let that be your guide.
I know! I know! not the most pleasant post, but I pray about people that follow me and ask the Lord to send those that can receive what He wants said through me...so, I say it and trust that the Lord will do what needs to be done so that you will receive it.
