What did Jesus mean by those four somber words?
After more than two decades, I believe that I now understand why Jesus made such a strange statement, as recorded in Matthew 7: 22, 23:
“Many will say to me IN THAT DAY, Lord, Lord, have we not prophesied in your name? And in thy name have cast out devils? And in thy name have done many wonderful works?”
And then I will profess unto them,
I NEVER KNEW YOU!
Wow! Now that is deep. It seems from this scripture that these servants were both faithful, committed and sincere so it seems impossible that Jesus would then say, “Depart from me, you workers of iniquity.” How could anyone who prophecies in His name be in iniquity? And how could anyone casting out devils in His name be in iniquity?
Well, the picture on the book cover provides a clue. Jesus did not know them because there are people who have been faithfully serving “another Jesus.” In my research for my 4th book entitled “The Fake Jesus,” I discovered that among occultists and New Agers, there is a being called “an ascended master” who calls himself “Jesus Sananda Immanuel.” This “being” first presented himself to the USA in the 50’s. He claimed then that he was an alien. A fallen angel, Sananda has boasted that he cleverly infiltrated the organized church by inspiring church leaders to accept the picture above on church walls, statues, books, etc.
Therefore, I suggest to you that there are people who “prophesy” and who “cast out devils,” in the name of Jesus, but it is not in the name of Jesus Christ of Nazareth but unknowingly to them, they are really working for the imposter, Jesus Sananda Immanuel, the imposter.
I suspect that you will agree that anyone whom Jesus NEVER knew is damned, or in other words “not saved.” So how is it that unsaved people are able to prophecy and even cast out devils?
