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.

    I Think that we all get good understanding as we share all parts of the scripture and verses. Test Acts 2:44 All that believed together had all things common. And we are teaching one another by faith , hope, spirit. We learn because we share our thought on the word, not the earth.

    Ruth (cont.); Just wanted to say, that I agree with you! I don't mean to 'nit pick' (and I wasn't 'finding fault' with what you wrote at all!); but I wanted to emphasize that the idea of one having to belong to a Church and subject himself without thinking, Is this right? is misleading, and a potentially terrible dangerous snare. Birds of a feather flock together. People flock to those they like!

    IS NOT BAPTISM PART OF GODS WILL--PART OF THE GOSPEL--MATTHEW 7:21 NOT EVERYONE THAT SAITH UNTO ME LORD LORD SHALL ENTER INTO THE KINGDOM OF HEAVEN BUT HE THAT DOETH THE WILL OF MY FATHER WHICH IS IN HEAVEN *** 1 PETER 4:17 FOR THE TIME IS COME THAT JUDGEMENT MUST BEGIN AT THE HOUSE OF GOD AND IF IT FIRST BEGIN AT US WHAT SHALL THE END BE OF THEM THAT --OBEY NOT-- THE GOSPEL OF GOD

    Nia; AMEN! Luke 6:26 "Woe unto you, when all men shall speak well of you! for so did their fathers to the false prophets." Mark 13:22 "For false Christs and false prophets shall rise, and shall shew signs and wonders, to seduce, if it were possible, even the elect." They of the Truth hear Jesus' voice and follow HIM! A stranger they will not follow, but WILL FLEE from strangers! God proves us.
  • Nia Ettienne
    Everywhere we turn we see fake pastors for anyone who preaches the word and is only concern about televising themselves and having a filled up church, is not of Christ.
    True Christians have to be wise and stick to the word. Don't be fooled by all these worldly preachers who serve the world and not God.
