WHEN JESUS TELLS YOU TO "GET LOST"!

True and False Disciples (from Matthew 7:21 ff)
21“Not everyone who says to me, ‘Lord, Lord,’ will enter the kingdom of heaven, but only the one who does the will of my Father who is in heaven. Saying “LORD, LORD” isn't enough. YOU HAVE TO DO THE WILL OF THE FATHER. So many who act like over-the-top Christians are opposing the will of the Father at every turn and I fear for them.  22 Many will say to me on that day, ‘Lord, Lord, did we not prophesy in your name and in your name drive out demons and in your name perform many miracles?’ Many will show the marks on their belts of prophecy,. Exorcisms, and miracles. MANY. That is a WHOLE LOT. 23 Then I will tell them plainly, ‘I never knew you. Away from me, you evildoers!’ Jesus will say he never knew them and for them to get lost!

One CANNOT keep disobeying God's word, reviling authority, and calling evil good and good evil and come into his kingdom. They would be a misfit. They do not belong. His kingdom will be one of peace. Those who cause trouble in the church would cause trouble in heaven. The Father cast Satan and a third of the angels out. Why would anyone think Ihe would welcome troublemakers into his eternal kingdom? People who do not believe his word? People who do not obey him? People who do not love what he loves? People who reject the leaders he has chosen? People who love and adore leaders God has outright rejected? Our Father in heaven is a logical God and he does what makes sense. That will surely hit the rebels hard.
