#Jesus once said:
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?” And then will I declare to them, “I never knew you; depart from me, you evildoers.” —Matt. 7:22-23
If a #Christian is so #faithful as to perform #miracles in the name of the Lord, then how much more ardently would he #believe in and #serve the #Lord when he comes on the clouds in great glory? Wouldn’t Jesus then receive him warmly? Why, then, did Jesus speak as if he would reject such faithful #Christians upon his return? If the returning #Christ rejects such devout #believers , who in the #LastDays can possibly be saved? This #prophecy also cannot be fulfilled if Jesus comes on the clouds. In Jesus’ day, there must have been many #Jews whose #faith was so ardent that they could perform miracles in God’s name. Yet, since they believed that #Elijah himself would descend from #heaven before the #Messiah came, it was hard for them to accept that Elijah was present among them as #John the #Baptist—all the more so because of John’s denial. Hence, they did not accept Jesus as the Messiah and ostracized him from the community. Consequently, Jesus had to abandon them in tears. In like manner, at the #Second #Advent of Christ, those Christians who expect his miraculous and glorious appearance will almost certainly reject him if he comes in the flesh of humble birth. No matter how faithful they may be, the Lord will be left with no choice but to abandon them because they will have transgressed against #God .
