Wesley's Notes for Matthew 7:22
7:22 We have prophesied - We have declared the mysteries of thy kingdom, wrote books; preached excellent sermons: In thy name done many wonderful works - So that even the working of miracles is no proof that a man has saving faith.
People's Bible Notes for Matthew 7:22
Mt 7:22 Many will say to me in that day. The great day of the Lord. Lord, Lord, have we not prophesied in thy name? The Lord chooses out of the greatest class of non-doers to show that all such will fail of entrance. They have omitted the one thing needful, a faithful obedience.

Jesus is speaking the truth. He is speaking a prophetic word about how it will be in the last days. Today we hear a lot of preachers on TV prophesying, speaking in tongues, and casting out devils. Then you hear about them on the news doing something sinful. The very thing that they preach about, they end up doing. Many people put their trust in these people and send them their money. Jesus said that there is nothing that's done in the dark that will not be uncovered. Yes, your sins will find you out. Television preachers, you may look and sound good to many people, but God knows what's in your hearts. That is why he will say to you on judgment day, get away from me, you who work iniquity. I never knew you.

That day is prophetic for an appointed time in future. Like at an appointed time, an event sure to come, as Jesus said it will.

The time of his coming is so close I see this scripture beung fullfilled daily I see those that use to be on fire for God slip away and go thru motions they are crying Lord Lord and living the life of a sinner though their sins are'nt big sins it is still sin will keep them from the face of God.
