Wesley's Notes for Matthew 7:22

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 7:22

  • LINDA on Matthew 7:22
    Traditions of man make void the word of yahovah.
    the rapture theory, the pagan word easter and even the celebration of yahshua's birth on a pagan holiday
    contaminate any holy worship to yahovah. ?
  • Bob Hilt - in Reply on Matthew 7:22
    Using any other name than Jesus contaminates the word of God. Yes Easter is not in the Bible and it was first the Jews in the old testament doing this for SUNrise services in Ezekiel 8:16.
    Mark 7:9 And he (Jesus) said unto (The Jews) them, Full well ye reject the commandment of God, that ye may keep your own tradition.
    Matthew 1:21 And she shall bring forth a son, and thou shalt call his name JESUS: for he shall save his people from their sins.
    Matthew 1:25 And knew her not till she had brought forth her firstborn son: and he called his name JESUS.
    Calling Jesus Yeshua or whatever spelling is a denial of the new testament scriptures.
  • Vickie - in Reply on Matthew 7:22
    Calling Jesus by his Hebrew name in scripture should be no cause for contentious debate.
    Refer to the Strong's Concordance: Phonetic Spelling: (ee-ay-sooce')
    Definition: Jesus or Joshua, the name of the Messiah, etc.
    At the Revelation of Jesus Christ he will reveal his 'new' name known by none of us.
    We all (including me) need to be careful about straining that nat & swallowing that camel. The Kingdom of God is more than debate. It is unfeigned love of the brethren. Let us not judge in the matters that do not pertain to salvation....but let each of us be convinced in our own hearts. The Holy Spirit will teach each heart.
  • Tara Wilson-Nacoste - in Reply on Matthew 7:22
    Amen.
  • Kevin Gormley on Matthew 7:22
    Many give lip service to JESUS Mat 15:8 , but are not Born Again John 3:7 . It is they who lose out and are turned away Mat 7:22,23 . Salvation comes through JESUS CHRIST alone. It is a gift and cannot be earned Eph 2:8 . If GOD were to ask you why HE should let you into Heaven, what would your answer be? Would you tell HIM about your good works or give ALL credit to JESUS? Eph 2:9 KJV Not of works, lest any man should boast.

  • Jeanette on Matthew 7:22
    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.
  • Lydiawaddell on Matthew 7:22
    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.
  • Patti MEdcalf on Matthew 7:22
    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.
