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.

    God, and indeed the Bible admonishes everyone to love, and love is the summary of God's twelve commandments. Genuine agape love for our neighbours and for God is what God require from us. Therefore if we expect other to love us, we must love them also, love is the fulfilment of the law .

    God is always reminding us to have obedience on his words and accept God as our Savior, our Lord and the Lover of our Soul. Jesus himself is the word of God and he came down and shed his blood to us so that all of us will have life in abundance. We must keep thanking Jesus and praised him for everything he have done into our lives. We are saved by his Grace and he is faithful to his promises. Amen
  • Sheander
