Matthew 7:22-23 (NKJV)
Many will say to Me in that day, ‘Lord, Lord, have we not prophesied in Your name, cast out demons in Your name, and done many wonders in Your name?’ And then I will declare to them, ‘I never knew you; depart from Me, you who practice lawlessness!’
Aishat accepted the Lord Jesus when she was on campus. When she graduated and was now living on her own, she searched for a local church to become a part of. The first Church she attended was headed a prophet who was very gifted with the word of knowledge. He saw certain accurate visions about her and asked her to see him in private. After seeing him severally she was not comfortable with the way looks at her and touches her when they are in private. She later found out that he was an immoral man who had many girlfriends. Because she was very beautiful, he wanted her to be his girlfriend.
Fortunately for her, she had received proper discipleship training on campus to know to run away from such a minister.
I believe no one will be able to tell Jesus a lie when they appear before Him on judgment day. Those who would tell him that they performed miracles in His name would really think that because they were walking in spiritual gifts, God knows them. But it is only His sheep that He knows. His sheep are His disciples: they are those submitted to His Lordship and do His will; they love Him and obey His commandments (John 14:15, 1 John 2:3). It is those who Love Him that are known by Him (see 1 Cor 8:3).
Go into today remembering that it is ‘by their fruits that you shall know them’ (Matt 7:20). The fruit of a person’s life is his character (see Gal 5:22-23). Please run away from the authority of any minister who bears bad fruit.
