“21 Not every one that says unto Me, Lord, Lord, shall enter into the Kingdom of Heaven; but he that does the Will of My Father which is in Heaven.
22 Many will say to Me in that day, Lord, Lord, have we not prophesied in Your Name? and in Your Name have cast out devils? and in Your Name done many wonderful works?
23 And then will I profess unto them, I never knew you: depart from Me, you that work iniquity.” Matthew 7:21-23
Prophesying in the Name of Jesus is not a requirement to enter into Heaven.
Casting out devils in the Name of Jesus is not a requirement to enter into Heaven.
Doing many wonderful works in the Name of Jesus is not a requirement to enter into Heaven.
Workers of iniquity will prophesy, cast out devils and do many wonderful works in the name of Jesus but they will not enter into the Kingdom of Heaven. Discern the Gospel being declared. If it is not Jesus Christ as the Source and His Cross as the means by which all of our blessings flow and victory over sin is freely given, it is iniquity and is accursed.
“11 He answered and said unto them, Because it is given unto you to know the mysteries of the Kingdom of Heaven, but to them it is not given.
12 For whosoever has, to him shall be given, and he shall have more abundance: but whosoever has not, from him shall be taken away even that he has.
13 Therefore speak I to them in parables: because they seeing see not; and hearing they hear not, neither do they understand.” Matthew 13:11-13.
The mysteries of the Kingdom of Heaven are revealed by the Holy Spirit through the Word of God. It is a revelation knowledge of Truth that can only be revealed by the Holy Spirit to give the Believer further understanding of the precepts of God. There is not graduating class; at least this side of Glory. The Word of God is alive and therefore cannot be exhausted.
Beware of the distractions by the workers of iniquity. Their works are not required to enter into the Kingdom of Heaven. From Genesis to Revelation, the Word of God speaks of Jesus Christ, Who He is and what He did on Calvary’s Cross for Salvation of the sinner and Sanctification of the Saint. Faith in the Lord Jesus Christ and His redeeming work is the ONLY requirement to enter into the Kingdom of Heaven. Be built up on your most holy faith, praying in the Holy Ghost as the Spirit of the Lord gives the utterance and KNOW in Whom you have believed.
“6 As you have therefore received Christ Jesus the Lord, so walk ye in Him:
7 Rooted and built up in Him, and stablished in the faith, as you have been taught, abounding therein with thanksgiving.
8 Beware lest any man spoil you through philosophy and vain deceit, after the tradition of men, after the rudiments of the world, and not after Christ.” Colossians 2:6-8
