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.

Discussion for Matthew 7

  • Bruce
    Authority to judge? He doesn't say don't ever judge but be careful how. v:2-5,to who v:6,watch out v:15,how will you know v:16. Just like sheep will get tangled up or stuck in mud. Don't say I will never be in that mess I would never say or do that! I'm glad I'm not like you! For by what judgment you use you will be judged. By their fruits you know v:20. Don't push them deeper but lift them up!

    God has not given us the authority to judge so we should not judge if we don't want to be judged adversely.
