MORNINGTIME 2366
 
Every tree that bringeth not forth good fruit is hewn down, and cast into the fire. Wherefore by their fruits ye shall know them. Not 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. Many 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? And then will I profess unto them, I never knew you: depart from me, ye that work iniquity. Matthew 7:19-23. For the great day of his wrath is come; AND WHO SHALL BE ABLE TO STAND? Revelation 6:17. Have you ever said or done something and it suddenly occurred to you that it was not a good thing to do, and you immediately Repented in sorrow and shame asking the Lord to Forgive you? It was such a little thing you did, but the slightest Touch of the Holy Spirit made it feel like you had come against the Lord and you couldn't Repent fast enough or deep enough? In the midst of Repentance we KNOW that no "excuse" can be had and don't even try to give one as we melt in Sorrow for our "crime". God is so Holy that even the slightest whiff of disobedience will send us to our knees. When these people cry out, "LORD, LORD, HAVE WE NOT...", they KNOW that they are in serious trouble and are going down, and these excuses are a last ditch effort to grab for ANYTHING that may Justify them before the Lord. Christ is our Justified as we can offer nothing to contribute to our Salvation. These "Lord Lord"  people have no Justifier to stand in for them, so the Pitiful Best they can try to do is justify themselves with ANY excuse they can come up with. It will be the most Pitiful Heart Wrenching Moment to realize, "I have nothing to offer the Lord, I'm Doomed", and then hear from Him, "Depart from me you cursed FOR I NEVER KNEW YOU". No man on earth has ever tasted of the utter hopelessness that will wash over him at that moment. They will NOT, Be Blessed.
