Recently, I was praying and asked the Lord to please give me fresh Revelation regarding His Word. We must all come to the realize that we will never know everything and must continue asking Abba to teach us by His Holy Spirit, through His Word.
I ask Him where to begin and He called to my heart Matthew 7:23 (NASB) 23 And then I will declare to them, ‘I never knew you; depart from Me, you who practice lawlessness.’
I was a little taken back at first. I asked the Lord, what it was that He wanted to reveal to me about this Scripture. I said, LORD that is the worst thing that anyone could ever hear and I do not want to hear Jesus speak this to me or anyone that I know.
Here is the Revelation. The worst thing that you will ever hear in your life is not that you have a disease, that someone does not love you, that you are fired from a job or anything else. The absolute worst thing that you could ever hear is Jesus say Matthew 7:23 to you.
Each and every one of us will stand before Jesus at the end of our time here on earth. He will either welcome us or make this statement to us. That is the Worst thing that anyone could ever hear.
Then the Lord said back up a verse –
Matthew 7:22-23 (NASB) 22 Many will say to Me on that day, ‘Lord, Lord, did we not prophesy in Your name, and in Your name cast out demons, and in Your name perform many [a]miracles?’ 23 And then I will declare to them, ‘I never knew you; depart from Me, you who practice lawlessness.’
Jesus was not talking to those who did not know who He was. He was speaking to people who thought that they knew Him. Some that actually thought the life that they were living and the work that they were doing was of Him. But it wasn’t, they were deceived. They thought that their place in Heaven was secured eternally. But they actually were not going there at all.
I know in my heart that He wanted to reveal to me how that would feel to hear those words. The Worst thing that I could ever hear. He wanted me to know that nothing in life compares to receiving Jesus as Lord. He wanted me to convey to all of you that no matter when He comes back, receiving Him as Lord is imperative. Making sure that you know Him, have relationship with Him, spend time with Him. That’s the most important thing that you could ever do with this life that you’ve been given by God.
Truly, I treasure my relationship with Jesus and I am thankful for the revelation of Matthew 7:23.
I’m asking the Lord for a greater measure of faith than ever before. Faith for the Salvation of everyone that I have ever known and will ever meet. There is an urgency in my heart, a fire to share the Good News of John 3:16 with people. My heart cries out for all of those who are deceived, Lord Please Save them. What is my part.
Is this your heart’s cry? If so please ask Abba what Scripture that He would like to reveal to you. He will speak to your heart and you open your Bible and read it out loud to Him. Go deeper, get closer and know Jesus more. Ask Him for the Salvation of everyone that you have ever known and ask Him if there is anything that you can do, say or pray, declare or decree on their behalf. Then do that. Because there are people out there that think that they know the truth, but they don’t and eternity is a long long long time to spend not with Jesus in Heaven. All roads do Not lead to Heaven. You must specifically ask Jesus Christ to be your Lord and truly with your heart believe that He is the only begotten Son of God.
The Good News is that we can repent for believing a lie and choose to believe the truth. It’s the most simple thing. I believe in Jesus. Do you? Are you one that I’m praying for?
Just say, Lord, I’m so very sorry for believing in something other than you. I choose to believe in You Jesus. I repent, please Forgive me of my sins. Come into my heart, I crown You LORD of my life. I am a believer in You Jesus. Amen
Eternal Life. Eternity is a long, long, long time.
Blessings and Shalom
Love Beyond Measure,
