Rejected by Jesus

At the judgment seat, Jesus will speak plainly, and will tell certain people to leave his presence.

It is a fact that the individuals to whom he speaks plainly (Matthew 7:23 NIV), and tells them to leave his presence are those who have prayed in his name.

Individuals who have done great things in his name will be told to leave his presence.

People who have cast out demons in his name will go to hell, as well as deceived souls who have preached in his name, and performed miracles in his name.

Consider that saying the name of Jesus while doing things does not guarantee entry to heaven.

Praying, miracles, exorcism, mighty works, and preaching done in the name of Jesus means nothing.

It is only accepted by Jesus if all those things are done in complete purity.

Consider that Jesus says that anyone who exerts any energy on sin will be told to depart from him.

Keep in mind that purity does not happen on the way to the judgment seat when your last breath is drawn here on earth.

You cannot, and will not find that in Scripture.

Your perfection happens here on earth upon repentance.

Your perfection happens here on earth upon receiving a new heart.

The order of things, as preached (commanded) by Jesus (Matthew 4:17), is to repent, then believe.

And by repent, Jesus means that you must change your mind about the sin that you do.

You must call sin, and see sin, as he sees sin, and as he says that sin is.

Do you know precisely what Jesus says about sin?

If you do not, then you will be rejected by him, for to believe in Jesus is to accept all that he says.

And you can only accept it if you know it.

And you can only know it after you repent.

And not only that, but once you repent, then you will study the Word, and do it.

You can, and will do all that he commands once you repent.

Upon repentance, a miracle occurs, not of your doing, but of God's, and that is the rebirth.

The truly redeemed have new hearts, and that means a new mind, and a completely new way of thinking about all things, and better still, they have the ability to do as commanded.

The old you is gone. The old desire to sin is gone. The new nature is in the repentant.

God's spirit lives in the redeemed to accomplish what they cannot do on their own.

God will not allow temptations to be too strong for the new soul (I Corinthians 10:13).

God's spirit does what the redeemed cannot do which is to live perfectly in love.

That is the reason for the final sacrifice of Jesus.

Continue to sin, and you'll be rejected by Jesus.

"For if we go on sinning deliberately after receiving the knowledge of the truth, there no longer remains a sacrifice for sins, but a fearful expectation of judgment, and a fury of fire that will consume the adversaries." (Hebrews 10:26-27 ESV)

Does Jesus say that all sin is deliberate?

If you say that you believe in him, then you know his words, and abide in them.

Do you?

If not, then you will be rejected by him.

Wake up. Study. Be approved.
