Luke 13:24-27

Display Chapter and Footnotes   

 24 Strive to enter in at the narrow gate, for many, I say to you, will seek to enter, and will not be able to.3

 25 And once the master of the house has risen and shut the door, you will stand outside and knock at the door, saying: 'Lord, Lord, open to us.' But he will answer and say to you, 'I do not know you or where you come from.' [You can call Him Lord; you can call Him Master; but so did Judas. Calling Jesus Lord does not make Him your Lord. He is your Lord only if He has freed you from all sin, if he has destroyed your carnal mind, if He has purified you, and if He supplies all your words to speak, all your thoughts, and all your actions to be done; Jesus said, "If you are still sinning, you are a slave to sin," John 8:34; and if you are still sinning, Jesus cannot be your Lord because He said, "you cannot serve two masters," Mat 6:24. So, as Jesus said, "Why do you call me, 'Lord, Lord,' and not do what I tell you?" Luke 6:46. From the Word of the Lord within: "If you are still sinning, you belong to sin and not to Me. All men are without excuse; if I were silent, they would have an excuse. All men have heard the call to repent. People must stand the price for their very brazen behavior." Several scriptures identify those who belong to Jesus; and in several other scriptures, Jesus has told us that we must repent, we must sin no more, or else we will be banned from heaven.]

 26 Then you will say, 'We ate and drank in your presence, and you taught in our streets.' [This fits very well with those who think communion or the "Eucharist" is eating and drinking in his presence, and their "streets" was just another street in Babylon. Jesus denies them ever eating and drinking in his presence and denies their origin as valid. Of course He knows everything, including their continued sinning till death; his denial is a denial of knowing them by their eating and drinking in his presence, and he denies having taught in their streets, (their origin), both of which they thought had occurred and entitled them to enter heaven.]

 27 But he will say, 'I tell you, I do not know you or where you come from; depart from me, all you workers of iniquity [wrongdoers, still sinning]!'4 [Every man is judged by their words and works, including those who claim to be Christians; God shows partiality to no man. From the Word of the Lord within: "Remember, every person who sins denies Him as Lord and Master. If you are still sinning, you belong to sin and not to Me. See myself — thus no sin has a place in me. Everyone is expecting Jesus to be their excuse. I've warned them and given them the requirements and preached the exclusions; they should not expect anything else or conclusion. All men have heard the call to repent. People must stand the price for their very brazen behavior." My sheep hear My voice, and I know them, and they follow Me. John 10:27. If you don't hear his voice and follow (obey) Him, He doesn't know you; and if you die while still sinning, you will be banned from heaven. If you haven't seen Him and listened to Him, neither do you know Him. Unless cleansed and purified by the Lord's Spirit that destroys sin within man, every man's heart starts filled with evil, filled with sin, defiled, and disqualified for heaven. ]

Galatians 5:19-21

Display Chapter and Footnotes   

 19 Now the works of the flesh are manifest, which are: adultery, sexual immorality, uncleanness, lack of restraint, [The works of the flesh are sin, and the wages of sin are death. From the Word of the Lord within: "Consequence-free sin does not exist; the consequences are truly staggering. There is a war you must win: sin must be overcome; the fleshly lusts war against your soul."]

 20 Idolatry [covetousness], sorcery, hatred, arguments, jealousies, rage, selfish ambition, divisiveness,

 21 Envies, murders, drunkenness, revelries [partying], and the like; which I say beforehand, as I have said before, that those who do such things will not inherit the kingdom of God.4 [All men do works of the flesh because their hearts are defiled until they have been crucified on the inward cross of self-denial, and in no way shall there enter into heaven anything that is defiled. Rev 21:27]

Ephesians 5:3,5-6

Display Chapter and Footnotes   

 3 But as becomes the saints, do not let sexual immorality, all uncleanness, or covetousness, be named among you even once.

 5 For of this you can be sure, that no sexually immoral, or impure, or covetous person, who is an idolater, has any inheritance in the kingdom of Christ and of God. [The peoples of the earth have ignored these perfectly clear behaviors, (sexual immoraity, impurity, covetousness), that exclude any and all from the kingdom. From the Word of the Lord within: "Ephesians 5:5-6: This the void of the earth, made perfectly clear. Those who are immoral have no inheritance in God's kingdom." Paul just told us that covetousness is idolatry. So whatever we want or value, we worship; and how one spends their free time defines their devotion. From the Word of the Lord within: "you must learn to hate everything you worship."]

 6 Let no man deceive you with vain words. For because of such things God's wrath comes on those who are disobedient.1 [Paul pleas with you not to be deceived by anyone who tells you differently, (e.g., that your sexual immorality, impurity, and covetousness is excused by believing in Jesus), which is what the preachers of Christianity do; even the demons believe in Jesus. It is only by waiting on the Lord to hear and obey his commands that one can become pure, free of sexual immorality, and free of covetousness. From the Word of the Lord within: "The way is clear: listen and obey."]

1 Corinthians 6:9-10,15:50

 9 Do you not know that the unrighteous will not inherit the kingdom of God? Do not be deceived; neither fornicators, nor idolaters, nor adulterers, nor passive male homosexual partners, nor dominant male homosexual partners, [From the word of the Lord within: "sexual desires can be overcome."]

 10 Nor thieves, nor covetous, nor drunkards, nor revilers, nor oppressive cheaters; these will not inherit the kingdom of God.1

 50 Now this I say, brothers, that flesh and blood cannot inherit the kingdom of God; neither does corruption inherit incorruption. [A man still in his flesh walks according to the ways of the world, fulfilling the desires of the flesh and the thoughts of his mind. The man of the flesh with its corruption must be crucified and incorruption put on; then the kingdom can be entered, and all this must occur while you are still on the earth to avoid being banned from heaven when you die.]

Revelation 21:7-8,27

 7 He who overcomes [conquers sin and the devil] shall inherit these things; and I will be his God, and he shall be my son. [What "these things?"—a new heaven and a new earth; all things new; the fountain of the water of life; no more death, sorrow, crying, or pain.]

 8 But the cowards, the unbelieving and faithless, the abominable, murderers, sexually immoral, magic art practitioners, and idolaters, and all liars, shall have their part in the lake that burns with fire and brimstone; which is the second death.2"

 27 And in no way shall there enter into it [heaven] anything that is defiled, nor anyone who does abominations, or lies; but only those who are written in the Lamb's book of life. ["And a highway shall be there, and a way, and it shall be called 'The way of holiness.' The unclean shall not pass over it." Isa 35:8. "Awake, awake, put on your strength, O Zion; put on your beautiful garments, O Jerusalem, the holy city. For from this time forward the uncircumcised and the unclean shall no more come into you." Isa 52:1 All men are unclean, uncircumcised, and defiled until their sinful, selfish, evil nature within them is destroyed and crucified through the inward cross of self-denial. From the Word of the Lord within: "The pure is innocent of all defilement."]
