Beware of false prophets, which come to you in sheep's clothing, but inwardly they are ravening wolves. 16Ye shall know them by their fruits. Do men gather grapes of thorns, or figs of thistles? 17Even so every good tree bringeth forth good fruit; but a corrupt tree bringeth forth evil fruit. 18A good tree cannot bring forth evil fruit, neither can a corrupt tree bring forth good fruit. 19Every tree that bringeth not forth good fruit is hewn down, and cast into the fire. 20Wherefore by their fruits ye shall know them.
21Not every one that saith unto me, Lord, Lord, shall enter into the kingdom of heaven; but he that doeth the will of my Father which is in heaven. 22Many will say to me in that day, Lord, Lord, have we not prophesied in thy name? and in thy name have cast out devils? and in thy name done many wonderful works? 23And then will I profess unto them, I never knew you: depart from me, ye that work iniquity.
Sir, the devils believe in the deity of Christ, the virgin birth, the second coming, they really beleive. They know their fate in Hell. But there is one difference; They will never trust Jesus as their only hope. Benny Hinn has the plan of salvation given on his website, sir, complete with King James Bible references. Do you think Benny is saved? We You see...you can believe there IS a Jesus all you want to, but until you are willing to admit you are wrong, God is right, and give your heart to Him, you will die and bust Hell wide open. In order to be saved, there must be something to be saved FROM. And that something is your dirty rotten sin nature. If you simply beleive Jesus exists but think that you are reallya good person, and that your good works are sufficient, you haven't really beleived on Jesus. You are not born again. You are like the ones in verses 22 and 23. Like I said, rpentence is BELIEVENG, you are a sinner, deserving punishment,and simply turning to Jesus, putting your trust in Him. It is not a "work" it is a beleif in the heart. It's not "confessing" all your sins, although some may do that. If I had to confess all mys sins to get saved, I would be old and grey before I finished. Repentence is also an on going process in the life of a beleiver.
