    See all those people were doing "MANY WONDERFUL WORKS". They were all so called "Christians" doing good things in HIS name. But he told them I never knew you you doers of evil. THEY THOUGHT they were being Christians. But it aint about CHRISTIANS. ITS ABOUT THE ISRAELITES.
  • HERE WE GO
    Its talking about the CHILDREN OF ISRAEL. There is no such thing as spiritual Israel. This is refereeing to the ISRAELITES not about "Christians". MATT 7:22 Many will say to me in that day, Lord, Lord, have we not prophesied in thy name? and in thy name have cast out devils? and in thy name done many wonderful works? 23And then will I profess unto them, I never knew you: depart from me..
