Matthew 7:21-23 “Not everyone who says to Me,  ‘Lord, Lord,’ shall enter the kingdom of Heaven, but he who does the will of My Father in heaven. Many will say to Me in that day, ‘Lord, Lord, have we not prophesied in Your name, cast out demons in Your name, and done many wonders in Your name?’ And then I will declare to them, ‘I never knew you; depart from Me, you who practice lawlessness!’

There are many scary scriptures in the Bible, but this one is at the top of my list. How can you cast out demons, prophesy, and do many wonders and still be told “ I never knew you”? We have all heard the phrases: “ Short, sweet, and to the point” or “I’ve saved the best for last” or “ Here is the most important thing you need to remember”. The punch line is always at the end of a joke. The climax is normally at the end of a movie. If you want to tell someone something very important that they need to remember, do you say it in the beginning of the conversation and then drag out the details and go on and on till they forget what you said? No. By the time that conversation would have ended you might forget the main point. The last thing Jesus commanded us to do before leaving this earth to go to Heaven is one of the most important!

Mark 16:15-16 And He said to them, “Go into all the world and preach the gospel to every creature. He who believes and is baptized will be saved;  but he who does not believe will be condemned.

After Jesus’ last commandment He was received up to Heaven and sat down at the right hand of God (Mark vs.19). You can cast out as many demons as you want and prophesy and preform wonders, BUT YOU BETTER BE WINNING SOULS FOR THE KINGDOM OF GOD!!! That is what Jesus commanded us to do! Soul winning! Save every creature and baptize all of them. Oh how Heaven rejoices over one sinner, than ninety-nine already saved souls. Oh how Heaven rejoices over one sinners salvation, than the casting out of demons, prophesying, and wonders. 

Luke 15:7 I say to you that likewise there will be more joy in heaven over one sinner who repents than over ninety-nine just persons who need no repentance.

Glory to God! I’m sure heaven does cheer when demons are cast out, wonders are preformed, and there are prophecy’s, but the way I see it, it is like a game of bowling compared to a college football championship winning touchdown celebration. The decision of that one sinner to follow Jesus Christ and repent for there sins stops Heaven in its tracks and they celebrate his or her bold declaration. There is joy in the presence of the angels of God over one sinner who repents. (Luke 15:10). Why is it a big deal because there are an innumerable company of angels filled with joy when you are saved! (Hebrews 12:22)! Or if your really good at mathematics ten thousand x ten thousand, and thousands of thousands with joy of your salvation. (Revelation 5:11). For that many angels to stop, just for a sinners conversion, is a very big deal. Praise God! 
Not only are there angels cheering on the new creatures in Christ Jesus, but also for (you) for doing the will of our Father and what Jesus commanded has us to do. 

There are over 7 billion people in the world today.  Many on the highway to hell. Matthew 7:13-14 “Enter by the narrow gate; for wide is the gate and broad is the way that leads to destruction, and there are many who go in by it. Because (how) narrow is the gate and difficult is the way which leads to life, and there are few who find it. 

Heaven rejoices because someone took a stand to decrease hells population! Take a stand with me and agree to depopulate hell. Keep Heaven in a constant state of cheer over the sinners led to our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. If you are reading this right now and are not out soul winning for Gods Kingdom I ask you to ponder this... Just One, just start by winning one soul to the Kingdom of God in 2019. Let 2019 be a year of soul winning! Amen. Maybe you are reading this right now and feel like that one lost sheep that wondered off from your shepherd. Searching for answers, hope, truth, and belonging. Search no more it is found in Jesus Christ and the price He paid for you on Calvary's Cross because He loves you so much! If you want freedom from the chains and bondage of this life, accept Jesus. Call on His name and repent. Jesus is waiting. Heaven is waiting. Hell is real and you don’t have to go there. Hell was only made for the devil and his angels. 

You don’t want to hear those gut punching words from Jesus when it’s been to late and you missed your chance to accept him. “I NEVER KNEW YOU” 

Heavenly Father, I know I am a sinner, and I ask for your forgiveness. I believe Jesus Christ is Your Son. I believe that He died for my sins and that You raised Him to life. I want Jesus as my personal Savior and to follow Him as Lord over my life from this moment forward. Guide my steps and help me do Your Will. I pray this in Jesus mighty name. Amen.
