Matthew 7:22-23. Many will say to me in that day Many, both preachers and hearers, both ministers and people, Lord, Lord, have we not prophesied in thy name? Have we not declared the mysteries of thy kingdom; preached excellent sermons; written edifying books; explained and enforced the doctrines of thy word, even the prophecies thereof, and shown their fulfilment: nay, have we not ourselves foretold future events, and in thy name have cast out devils From those possessed by them, and done many wonderful works Even miracles of mercy as well as of judgment? Then will I profess unto them, I never knew you Though I called you to be my servants, and you professed yourselves such, I never knew you to be such, nor approved of you. So that even the working of the greatest miracles, and the uttering the most undoubted prophecies, is not a sufficient proof that a man possesses saving faith, nor will any thing of that kind avail to prove that we are now accepted of God, or are in the way to meet with acceptance of him at the day of final accounts, without the faith productive of true and universal holiness. Depart from me, ye that work iniquity For none can enter heaven but those that are saved from their sins on earth. If we die in our sins, where Jesus is we cannot come.
