Not everyone who says to me: Lord, Lord, will enter the kingdom of heaven

Today we have many people saying “Lord” to Jesus Christ, we see people from the media, famous people saying “Lord” to Christ, but the ironic thing is that most of them do not change their way of being and are still under the curse of sin. There is also another group that is able to preach in the pulpits not to exalt the name of Christ but to be known by others.

In the Bible we find a passage where Jesus spoke about this, and He mentioned the sad end of them:

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!’

Matthew 7:21-23

One thing is us to vociferate that Christ is the Lord and quite another is to do the will of the one we say is our Lord. And this is why on one occasion Jesus asked the question: Why do you call me: “Lord, Lord” and do not do what I say? (Luke 6:46). We not only must seek to call our beloved Jesus “Lord”, but we must keep His Word so that He may truly be our Lord.

In that great day it will happen that many who had a great ministry, who made great stages in front of the world, who were famous, will come before Jesus telling Him all the good deeds they did in His name, but the sad response of Jesus will be: Go away I never knew you, evildoers!

Let us strive to be known by Christ, to remain in Him and in His Word so that on that day Christ may know us.

    Yes there are those who believe they are doing God’s will and it’s really about self. And there are those who truly love the Lord and are making the same mistake. But Gods Word tells us His people keep His commandments and have the testimony of Jesus Christ.

    God gave us 10 commandments and not one of them has been changed. It’s the 4th commandment that will be called into question. God said to “Remember” the sabbath day to keep it holy. And that day is the 7th day. It hasn’t been changed but many are unknowingly walking the wrong path. They love the Lord but at the same time are being deceived about who they are really worshiping.

    God’s Word has not changed. His commandments have not changed. We all should re-evaluate our worship and our walk. Because if we break on of the commandments we’ve broken them all. Don’t take for granted that this is not important that a day makes no difference. That will be a tragic mistake. Keep God’s Sabbath Day the 7th day of the week not the 1sts day. We don’t want to hear those words “I never knew you”.

    The devil would have you believe that this is being legalistic but if God said it and we love Him then who will you serve? I pick God and I choose to live by His Word.

      I’m not agree with you. Don’t interpret God’ word on this vew for fear to be wrong. I’ll be impossible for thee to be saved under Moses law. People of that age had not succeded to practise entirely the commands. Despite the fact, that the high priest have to shed the blood of animals for the sins of people and also for himself, the former legislation was’nt in their favor. Most of the law were related on how to behave in the flesh but in reality, before the Glory of God the corrupted blood and our flesh can’t stand that why it was said that the former convenant were a shade for the real to come. As the people were facing a predicament to fulfill thora, Jesus came to accomplish it at our stead so that we have to be free. About the law, he decided to inscribe it in us. It’s neither by our own effort we shall practise but he has sent the Holy Ghost to help us to afford it. That’s why in Jesus, there is no any circumcision, neither jew, greek, no respect sabbath day here on this earth that matter. All is Christ in all. What matter is to accept Jesus as the savior and confess him from thine mouth and thou shall be saved. Religious leaders were all the time accusing Jesus to break the law about the sabbath day. Don’t you know what he said to them ? The Son of man is the master of sabbath day. Even the people during thus time use to feed their animals on shabbath day in depising to real one which has been instaured in the very beginning. Well, we shall experience the real accurary of that facts in the heaven with Christ where we shall reign and be in rest definitively of our labour. The subject which is dealt here is about those who don’t really practise Jesus teaching but yet only confess his with lips. It’s for them, the jugement will be severe

    Not everyone who says to me: Lord, Lord, will enter the kingdom of heaven.

    Words do not matter, nor does it matter to be a religious person. The Lord God watches inside of us in our minds, our spiritual heart.

    We cannot remain every day saying “Lord, Oh Lord” and pretend to be a follower of the Lord Jesus Christ without reading his Word, or striving to know Him more truly, to adore Him as He wants us to adore Him, in Spirit and in Truth, as the Father seeks to be worshiped.

    Jesus said:
    “But the hour comes, and now is, when the true worshippers shall worship the Father in spirit and in truth: for the Father seeks such to worship him”. John 4:23

    It is no use to show to others how a good o fervent person we are if this is not approved by the Father of Jesus Christ, who loves and wants us to be their children from inside of the heart.

    I pray to the Lord that everyone of us who is met in this biblical page can be one of those about whom the Lord God says:

    “Fear you not; for I am with you: be not dismayed; for I am your God: I will strengthen you; yes, I will help you; yes, I will uphold you with the right hand of my righteousness.” Isaiah 41:10
