A Warning Against Self Deception

“Do the will of the Father”

Matthew 7

“Not everyone who says, ‘Lord, Lord,’ will enter the kingdom of heaven,” Christ warned. “Only if you do the will of the Father will you enter His kingdom.”

The Savior continued, “On the last day, many will come to me and say, ‘Lord, Lord, didn’t we prophesy your name? And in your name, we cast out devils and performed many miracles!’”

“And I will tell them, ‘I never knew you. Get away from me, you that does evil,’” He simply stated.

There was fear in the people’s hearts, but also faith in knowing the truthfulness in the teachings of the Savior.
