Matthew 7:21-23

"Not everyone who says to Me, 'Lord, Lord,' will enter the kingdom of heaven, but he who does the will of My Father who is in heaven will enter. "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 miracles?' "And then I will declare to them, 'I never knew you; DEPART FROM ME, YOU WHO PRACTICE LAWLESSNESS".

“Jesus said, “Not everyone who says to me ‘Lord, Lord,’ will enter the
Kingdom of heaven but only he who does the will of my Father who is in heaven. Many will say to me on that day, ‘Lord, Lord, did we not prophecy in your name and in your name drive out demons and perform many miracles?’ Then I will tell them plainly, ‘ I never knew you. Away from me, you evildoers! (lawless)” What are the characteristics of these many who think they are saved? 1) They expect heaven 2) They call Jesus Lord 3) They prophecy in His name 4) They cast out demons in His name 5) The perform miracles 6) They are lawless They are lawless. They are evildoers. They never got saved and then backslid because Jesus said, “I never knew you”. They entered in by a counterfeit gospel”.
