Matthew 7:21-23

Display Chapter and Footnotes   

 21 Not everyone who says to me, 'Lord, Lord,' will enter into the kingdom of heaven; but [only] he who does the will of my Father who is in heaven.9 [To do the will of God, you must stop fulfilling your own desires; you cannot do the things you wish. To know the will of the Father, you must hear Him teach you with commands tailored to your life's circumstances. To hear Him you must wait in humble silence while listening and watching; then you must obey what He commands you to do. The first commands you hear will require your repentance. That is the beginning of doing His will. You must progress until you are totally led by Him: only thinking the thoughts He provides, only speaking the words He tells you to speak, and only doing what He commands; then your words and deeds show the love of God to the world and bring glory to God.]

 22 Many will say to me in that day, 'Lord, Lord, have we not prophesied in your name? And in your name cast out demons? And in your name done many wonderful works?' [You can call Him Lord; you can call Him Master; but so did Judas. Calling Jesus Lord does not make Him your Lord. He is your Lord only if He has freed you from all sin, if he has destroyed your carnal mind, if He has purified you, and if He supplies all your words to speak, all your thoughts, and all your actions to be done. If you are still sinning, you are a slave to sin, John 8:34; and if you are sinning, Jesus cannot be your Lord because you cannot serve two masters. Every man is judged by their words and works, including those who claim to be Christians; God shows partiality to no man. Because they are still sinning when they die, Jesus will reject many people who think they are Christians and call him Lord; including even those who had prophesied, cast out demons, and performed many wonderful works in his name. From the Word of the Lord within: "I only know those who have been crucified." He is aware of everyone everywhere, but he doesn't know them because they had not been crucified, and he denies of any part in their prophesying, casting out demons, and wonderful works, which they claimed to be done "in his name." To be in his name, a person has to be free of sin, in union with Him, and sitting in heaven with Him; they were not, as he plainly states below.]

 23 And then I will declare to them, 'I never knew you; depart from me, you who work iniquity'10 [sin, lawlessness, or wickedness]. [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. Unless cleansed 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. All defiled men are banned from heaven. This people honors me with their lips, but their heart is far from me. Mark 7:6. For from within, out of the heart of men, proceed evil thoughts, adulteries, fornications, murders, thefts, covetousness, wickedness, deceit, lack of restraint, an evil eye, blasphemy, pride, and foolishness. All these evil things come from within a man and defile him. Mark 7:21-23. And in no way shall there enter into it [heaven] anything that is defiled...Rev 21:27. 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. To follow Him is to obey what you hear Him command you to do; to hear, you must sit, think on his name, and then wait in humble silence while listening and watching. From the word of the Lord within: "Everyone is expecting Jesus to be their excuse. Remember, every person who sins denies Him as Lord and Master. If you are still sinning, you belong to sin and not to Me. No man is promoted or excused that repeats sin. Only a heart that is purged of sin is acceptable to God. All men are without excuse; if I were silent, they would have an excuse. All men have heard the call to repent. People must stand the price for their very brazen behavior." Those anonymous calls all men have heard to turn from evil, which if ignored, will be their judge, John 12:47-48; at their death every word will be played back, heard, and remembered to their great shame and sorrow.]

 21 For from within, out of the hearts of men, proceed evil thoughts, adulteries, fornications, murders, [The heart is deceitful above all things, and desperately wicked...Jer 17:9]

 22 Thefts, covetousness, wickedness, deceit, lack of restraint, an evil eye [envy], blasphemy, pride, and foolishness. [..for the imagination of man's heart is evil from his youth...Gen 8:21]

 23 All these evil things come from within a man, and defile him."3 [Every man's heart starts filled with evil, filled with sin, defiled, and disqualified for heaven. Unless your heart is cleansed and purified by the Lord's Spirit that destroys sin within man, every man walks according to the ways of the world and the god of this world, fulfilling their desires and lusts of their flesh according to their thoughts, according to their evil imagination, according to their carnal minds that are enmity against God and cannot be subject to the law of God. 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: "Only a heart that is purged of sin is acceptable to God. Everyone is expecting Jesus to be their excuse. If you are still sinning, you belong to sin and not to Me. See myself — thus no sin has a place in me. You are without excuse O man. Sin in believers is intolerable. The pure is innocent of all defilement." You can think you are a Christian and call Him "Lord," but if you die still sinning, you are banned from heaven. All defiled men are banned from heaven. When purified by grace, men are translated into heaven while on earth and then forever. To be freed of sin, even the desire to sin, you must obey the Lord's spoken commands that you expose yourself to hear, by waiting on Him in humble silence as you listen and watch; that is the one thing needed. Luke 10:39-42.]

Mark 9:43-47

 43 If your hand causes you to sin, cut it off; it is better for you to enter life maimed, than having two hands to go into Hell, into the fire that will never be quenched; [Jesus is emphatically telling us that Hell is horrible, and that if we wish to to escape Hell, sin has to go. He doesn't want us to maim ourselves. He wants us to come to Him so He can purify us and free us from all sin through obedient faith to the commands we hear Him speak to us as we wait on Him in humble silence.]

 44 Where their worm does not die, and the fire is not put out. [This verse did not appear in early manuscripts; along with verse 46, it was added by scribes, repeating the valid verse 48. Most bibles leave this verse blank or omit the number entirely.]

 45 And if your foot causes you to sin, cut it off; it is better for you to enter life lame, than having two feet to be cast into Hell, into the fire that will never be quenched;

 46 Where their worm does not die, and the fire is not put out. [This verse did not appear in early manuscripts; along with verse 44, it was added by scribes, repeating the valid verse 48. Most bibles leave this verse blank or omit the number entirely.]

 47 And if your eye causes you to sin, pluck it out; it is better for you to enter into the kingdom of God with one eye, than having two eyes to be cast into Hell fire;3 [In Matthew 5:28-29 Jesus tells that even looking at a woman with lust is sin enough to lead us to Hell. If we are to escape Hell, while on earth we must be freed from even the desire of our sins. All men's hearts are defiled and must be purified by Jesus to enter the Kingdom of God while we are on earth.]

Luke 13:3,5

 3 I tell you, no. But unless you repent, all of you will also perish.1 [From the Word of the Lord within: "Ephesians 5:5-6—this is the void of the earth, made perfectly clear: 'For of this you can be sure, that no sexually immoral, or impure, or covetous person (who is an idolater), has any inheritance in the kingdom of Christ and of God. Let no man deceive you with vain words. For because of such things God's wrath comes on those who are disobedient.' Eph 5:5-6." "Awake to righteousness, and do not sin; for some do not have the knowledge of God. I speak this to your shame." 1 Cor 15:34. "These times of ignorance God has overlooked; but now he commands all men everywhere to repent," Acts 17:30.]

 5 I tell you, no. But unless you repent, all of you will also perish." [From the Word of the Lord within: "We must be brought under the control of God by repentance. Woe to the inhabitants of the earth, who stand forth without repentance!" The Lord is not slack concerning his promise, ...but is longsuffering toward us, not willing that any should perish, but that all should come to repentance. 2 Pet 3:9.]

John 8:34

 34 Then Jesus answered them, "Truly, Truly, I say to you, everyone who commits sin is a slave to sin.5 [If you are still sinning, sin is your master, and the Lord cannot be your Lord or Master because as the Lord said, you cannot serve two masters. From the Word of the Lord within: "If you are still sinning, you belong to sin and not to Me. Those who belong to Christ are through with sin. Remember, every person who sins, denies Him as Lord and Master." Your challenge is to be set free from sin by Him, thus to be a slave to righteousness instead, only speaking the words you hear Him tell you to speak immediately before speaking and only doing what He orders you to do. Don't fool yourself to think you are not sinning; for until you are guided by the light of the Lord in every word to speak and every deed to be done, you are walking in the ways of the world, according to the prince of the power of the air, (Satan), in the lusts of the flesh, fulfilling the desires of your flesh and the thoughts of your mind; and that is walking in darkness, which is sin. Until your imagination and carnal mind have been destroyed by the Lord and replaced with the mind of Christ, you are still sinning.]

Matthew 13:41-42

 41  The Son of man will send forth his angels, and they will gather out of his kingdom all things that cause sin as well as the ones who practice lawlessness [sin];4

 42 And will cast them into a furnace of fire, where there shall be wailing and gnashing of teeth.
