|Luke 13:27-28 |
27 But he will say, 'I tell you, I do not know you or where you come from; depart from me, all you workers of iniquity [wrongdoers, still sinning]!'4 [Every man is judged by their words and works, including those who claim to be Christians; God shows partiality to no man. From the Word of the Lord within: "Remember, every person who sins denies Him as Lord and Master. If you are still sinning, you belong to sin and not to Me. See myself — thus no sin has a place in me. Everyone is expecting Jesus to be their excuse. I've warned them and given them the requirements and preached the exclusions; they should not expect anything else or conclusion." If you haven't seen Him and listened to Him, neither do you know Him. Unless cleansed and purified by the Lord's Spirit that destroys sin within man, every man's heart starts filled with evil, filled with sin, defiled, and disqualified for heaven. From the Word of the Lord within: "I only know those who have been crucified." He knows everything, but his "knowing" you is for him to become one with you, which occurs after you have been crucified.]
28 And there will be weeping and gnashing of teeth when you see Abraham and Isaac and Jacob and all the prophets in the kingdom of God, but you yourselves thrust out. [The Patriarchs, (Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob), exposed themselves to listen to God's teachings and commands; with their obedience, they became holy men. Their descendants, the Jews, (with few exceptions), thought they were chosen people, failing to apply the teachings of Moses and the Prophets to themsleves because they had not been listening to the Word of the Lord, the Word of the Lord within. Yet their own Old Testament scriptures had scores of severe warnings and consequences to those who failed to listen to God's voice; so their understanding of the scriptures was superficial and flawed, lacking the Spirit's personal teachings to themselves. So they continued to sin, and when people die still sinning, they are cast into outer darkness, banned from heaven.
Like the Jews who could not really hear Moses and the prophets, therefore failing to repent in their ways, the Christians of today presume that they are excused from all of Jesus's warnings and from all the Bible's stated exclusions, requirements, and qualifying conditions of salvation; — always thinking the warnings and commands apply to bad people, not righteous believing people like themselves; so they do not obey the commands of repentance they hear or read, remaining slaves to sin; and when they die, they also are banned from heaven, cast into outer darkness where there is weeping and gnashing of teeth.]
4 I do not know you or where you come from; depart from me, all you workers of iniquity [wrongdoers, still sinning]!
I do not know you or where you come from;
From the Word of the Lord within: "I only know those who have been crucified." He knows everything, but his "knowing" you is for him to become one with you, which occurs after you have been crucified. My sheep hear My voice, and I know them, and they follow Me. John 10:27. If you don't hear his voice and follow him with endurance until completely crucified, he doesn't know you. And if he doesn't know you, he will shut the door, refusing to open it, saying "I tell you, I do not know you or where you come from" and at judgment he will say to you "depart from me you who work iniquity, for I have never known you." Mat 25:11-12, Luke 13:24-27, Mat 7:21-23.
Depart from me, you workers of iniquity [wrongdoers, still sinning]!
Jesus rejected the people who thought they were Christians because they still sinned. They did not obey him: "Why do you call Me ‘Lord, Lord,’ and not do what I tell you?" Luke 6:46. They still sinned: "Truly, Truly, I say to you, everyone who commits sin is a slave to sin." John 8:34. If we are a slave to sin, he can't be our Lord because we cannot serve two masters. Mat 6:24, Luke 16:13. You are the slaves of him whom you obey; whether of sin that leads to death, or of obedience that leads to righteousness. Rom 6:16. Jesus even said that there would be those who had performed miracles and be rejected from heaven because they were still sinning; they had not crucified the sinful nature on the cross, which is necessary to belong to Christ Jesus. Gal 5:24
The Lord is warning those who think they are Christians and still sin: 1) he doesn't know you, and 2) he will cast you into outer darkness, banned from heaven at judgment. The Lord only knows those who hear his spoken words and obey him to completely crucify their sinful nature. To hear you must dedicate yourself to silent listening to hear his commands to change your behaviors, and then you must obey. If you persistently listen and obey the word of God in your heart, your soul is purified by obedience to the truth, 1 Peter 1:22; and your heart is purified by faith that obeys. Acts 15:9. Jesus said: "There is only one thing needed, and Mary has chosen the good part, which shall not be taken away from her"— to sit at the feet of Jesus and listen to his word. Luke 10:39-42. Surely he loves the people; all your holy ones are in your power. And they sit at your feet, each receiving your words. Deu 33:3. Christendom tells their members they can remain in sin and enter heaven when they die, but this is a lie and shows Christendom is Babylon; come out of her my people.
