I write this letter with a heavy heart. I knew that some of my readers may temporarily lose their peace of mind that they may have enjoyed for a while. Others may be disappointed by what they read. And some others may get angry at me. But, dear readers, that wasn’t my intention why I write you this letter. I have nothing but love for you. I have nothing but interest in your well being, now and in the future. I want you to have peace of mind not what this world can give you, but everlasting peace from Jesus. Peace from knowing what is ahead of you.
With that in mind, I want to ask your attention to the prophecy that Jesus said in the Scriptures. In Matthew 7:21-23 Jesus said, “Not everyone who says to me, ‘Lord, Lord,’ will enter the kingdom of heaven, but the one who does the will of my Father who is in heaven. 22 On that day many will say to me, ‘Lord, Lord, did we not prophesy in your name, and cast out demons in your name, and do many mighty works in your name?’ 23 And then will I declare to them, ‘I never knew you; depart from me, you workers of lawlessness.’
Millions of Christians believe that in order to be saved they have to believe in Jesus. That is indeed true, but that is not the whole truth. Why? Because the demons also believe in Jesus. But are they saved? No! According to the Bible, they will rot in hell! Having faith in Jesus is not adequate for salvation. We also have to earn our salvation through work, and not through faith only. We have to show proof to Jesus that we have faith in Him. And the proof is when we do His will - “one who does the will of my Father who is in heaven.” If we want to enter the kingdom of heaven we must do what God wants us to do. And what are they, you ask? They are His commandments that are written in the Bible. As a starter, we can start with the Ten Commandments, God’s moral laws that He gave to the prophet Moses described in the Old Testament. These are the basic laws of heaven, and everyone must follow these fundamental laws if they want to enter the kingdom of heaven. He requires total obedience from us, not partial obedience. Adam and Eve lost eternal life because they were willing to give only partial or little obedience to God. Lucifer and millions of his angels also lost heaven because they were disobedient to God. Millions of people were destroyed in the big flood during Noah’s time because they were not fully obedient to God. This is the problem that God had with mankind - a lack of total obedience. God had this same problem with Lucifer and his angels - lack of total obedience. Do you think God will live with us when He sees us as “workers of lawlessness”? I don’t believe He would unless we are totally obedient to Him. He paid a very high price with His life to redeem us. Common sense and logic tell me that He would not have anything to do with any of us when we are a bunch of “workers of lawlessness.” If you look at these words you will agree with me that they have nothing to do with a lack of faith in Jesus; but they have everything to do with working against the Holy Spirit!
Jesus said only those who do the will of His Father in heaven will enter the kingdom of heaven. Who is His father? In the Old Testament, His name is called YAHWEH. He created the world from nothing. He created the universe and every living thing that we see.
His will are clearly stated in the Bible, in the Old and in the New Testament. But unfortunately millions of Christians cannot see even the obvious. In His mercy toward us, however, He gave us this hint in His prophecy.
In Matthew 24:20 Jesus said, “But pray ye that your flight be not in the winter, neither on the Sabbath day.”
Sabbath Day? Millions of Christian preachers all over the world are teaching their listeners that keeping the Sabbath is no longer relevant and that the Sabbath is no longer a commandment. If keeping the Sabbath Day is no longer a commandment, why did Jesus say, “But pray ye that your flight be not in the winter, neither on the sabbath day.” ?
Are the preachers in collusion with the old man with the missing teeth and forked tongue, you ask? It looks that way, doesn’t it? Lucifer knows that he has no second chance; he knows that on judgment day he and his angels will rot in hell! And they are determined to take you and me with them by any means. Yes, the devil will do everything in his power to make sure that you are not saved! And the way he does this is by instilling in you the false belief that you are saved, through his agents - the so-called Christian preachers whom he had chosen as his brokers. And you believe in his salesmen talk, which I called the Jesus’ peddlers. When you believe that you are saved you become complacent and stop looking for the truth. And when you stop looking for the truth that's exactly where the devil wants you to do and be - in his cage.
Jesus said in Matthew 24:24, “For there shall arise false Christs and false prophets, and shall shew great signs and wonders; insomuch that, if it were possible, they shall deceive the very elect.” Many of these Jesus' peddlers don’t know much about the product that they are selling - Jesus. They can read, but they don't understand what they read.
Let me now conclude by putting the prophecies in Matthew and Revelation together so that you can better understand them.
Who are these “many” described in Matthew 7:21-23? They are the Sunday keepers who believed that they are saved because of their faith in Jesus. To them, nothing else matters other than faith. They do not believe in total obedience. They don’t believe in work. They don’t believe in the Ten Commandments. They only believe in faith and no or minimal work. They do work that Jesus did not ask them to do, such as celebrating Christmas; but they do not do the work that God had asked them to do - keep the Sabbath. Jesus called them “workers of lawlessness.” They are not the Muslims because they do not use the name of Jesus to expell demons. They are not Buddhist because they don't have faith in Jesus. They are not the Pharisees and Sadducees because they are also Sabbath keepers.
They were shocked and utterly disappointed when Jesus said to them, “I never know you: depart from me, you workers of lawlessness.” And then they noticed a group of believers behind them who are saved. They are also Christians, but they are the Sabbath keepers, and they did less than what the Sunday keeper Christians in front of them did. What they saw made them mad! They could not believe that God still want them to observe the Sabbath. They could not believe that their preachers have deceived them. All hell broke loose! They and the devil spew their disappointments, jealousy, hatred, and wrath instead upon the Sabbath-keepers for taking their place, and that’s when the persecution and flight of the Sabbath-keepers start as described in Matthew and Revelation. I want you to dig deeper into the pertinent chapters of Matthew and Revelation so you can know more about the end of time prophecy.
The prophecy says that many Sabbath-keepers will be killed during the flight, and none or few will be left except for God’s interference that saved them.
Revelation 6:16 wrote of these “workers of lawlessness,” that in the end they begged to the "mountains and rocks, Fall on us, and hide us from the face of him that sitteth on the throne, and from the wrath of the Lamb:” They realized that they can do nothing more at such a late hour. They know that they cannot fight God and win.
But you, brothers and sisters, still have the chance to make things right with God. All you need to do is fight yourself! Do not harden your heart!
Be steadfast in your obedience to Him until the end.
