• I Never Knew You

    Rotten Eggs

    "But in a great house there are not only vessels of gold and silver, but also of wood and clay, some for honor and some for dishonor."
    (2 Timothy 2:20)

    There is more to following Jesus than merely reciting a prayer. Our lives must prove the allegiance our lips have pledged.

    Beyond Belief

    "Not everyone who says to Me, ‘Lord, Lord,’ shall enter the kingdom of heaven, buthe who does the will of My Father in heaven."
    (Matthew 7:21)
    "Even the demons believe—and tremble!"
    (James 2:19)

    Beyond Enthusiasm

    "Great enthusiasm … does not of necessity imply spirituality. The flesh may account for that; it can counterfeit almost anything." (D. Martyn Lloyd-Jones)

    More than Great Preaching

    "But I discipline my body and bring it into subjection, lest, when I have preached to others, I myself should become disqualified."
    (1 Corinthians 9:27)
    "Some indeed preach Christ even from envy and strife, and some also from goodwill"
    (Philippians 1:15)
    "And though I have the gift of prophecy, and understand all mysteries and all knowledge, and though I have all faith, so that I could remove mountains, but have not love, I am nothing."
    (2 Corinthians 13:2)

    More than Wrangling Demons

    “Lord, even the demons are subject to us in Your name.”
    (Luke 10:17)
    "And if I cast out demons by Beelzebub, by whom do your sons cast them out?"
    (Matthew 12:27)
    “Jesus I know, and Paul I know; but who are you?”
    (Sceva's sons, Acts 19:15)

    More than Signs and Wonders

    "For false christs and false prophets will rise and show great signs and wonders to deceive, if possible, even the elect."
    (Matthew 24:24)
    "For Satan himself transforms himself into an angel of light."
    (2 Corrinthians 11:14b)
    "The coming of the lawless one is according to the working of Satan, with all power, signs, and lying wonders."
    (2 Thessalonians 2:9)

    Will the Real Believer Please Stand Up?

    "if you confess with your mouth the Lord Jesus and believe in your heart that God has raised Him from the dead, you will be saved."
    (Romans 10:9)
    "But whoever keeps His word, truly the love of God is perfected in him. By this we know that we are in Him."
    (1 John 2:5)
    “But seek first the kingdom of God and His righteousness, and all these things shall be added to you.”
    (Matthew 6:33)

    New King James Version (NKJV)

    21 “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.

    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?’

    23 “And then I will declare to them, ‘I never knew you; depart from Me, you who practice lawlessness!’”
