Who Are the Workers of Lawlessness in Matthew 7:23?
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. 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 workers of lawlessness.’
Yeshua said that only those who do the will of his Father in heaven would enter the Kingdom of Heaven and that those who disregard the law would be rejected no matter what other great deeds they've done. What law did he mean? How can we know what the will of the Father is? The answers aren't mysterious. We don't have to guess or wait for some personal revelation. The answers to both questions are plainly spelled out in Scripture.
