“Many will say unto me in that day, Lord, Lord, have we not prophesied in thy name? And in thy name have cast out devils? And in thy name have done many wonderful works? And them will I profess unto them, I never knew you; depart from me, ye that work iniquity”. Matt.7:22-23.
It is a known fact from the scriptures that some who are claiming to be miracles workers and prophets and are maintaining to be in heaven shall see themselves in hell because they are living in secret sins.
HERE ARE SOME OF THE FALSE HOPES PEOPLE ENTERTAIN
1. THE HOPE THAT “GOD IS TOO GOOD TO DAMN ANYONE”.
Some refuse to forsake sins claiming that God is too good to punish sin. II Pet.3:9, James 2:14, I Jn.5:4,5.
2. THE HOPE OF BEING SAVED BY OUR OWN RIGHTEOUSNESS. ROM.3:20, GAL.3:10.
3. THE HOPE THAT A MAN CAN BE SAVED BY MERE PROFESSION OF A RELIGION.
4. THE HOPE THAT A MAN CAN BE SAVED WITHOUT BEING BORN AGAIN. JN.3:3.
Conclusion: It is a pathetic situation for one to be performing signs and wonders in the name of Christ while he cannot make heaven because the Lord Jesus does not know him.
