High Ranking Christians That Work INIQUITY!

Iniquity (Noun) - is defined as immoral behavior; a wicked act or thing; Sin

In the New Testament the word iniquity is translated from the Greek word anomia which means, 'lawlessness,' or 'unrighteousness.' 

*It is worth noting that iniquity means lawlessness, yet many Pastors teach that the "Law," has been nailed to the cross... #ijs

There are a couple of scriptures that are often read by Christians and are read-over without careful thought and analyzation. All instances concern Jesus and His kingdom during the Great White Throne Judgement. 

One such passage is Matthew chapter 7.

"Enter ye in at the strait gate: for wide is the gate, and broad is the way, that leadeth to destruction, and many there be which go in thereat: Because strait is the gate, and narrow is the way, which leadeth unto life, and few there be that find it.
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 ‭7‬:‭13-14, 19-23‬ 

Who are these people that are responding to the Lord Jesus? 
Are these gangsters? 
Prostitutes or Politicians?

 These are not serial killers, street-walkers, or any of the people that we might all agree are Sinners… 

These are church people people that we all know who, "claimed to be saved."
To be clear, we are NOT even talking about people who only show up on  Mother's Day and Easter, these are clergy, Pastors, Evangelists, Praise leaders, Bishops, Deacons, Choir directors, church officials  and other 'high-ranking,' Christians.

How can we be sure these are not regular church members who come to every single Tuesday night Bible Study and early morning Sunday School, but church  officers and leaders

By the argument that they make. They argue that in the name of Jesus they have prophesied, cast out devils and done many wonderful works! 

When was the last time your local gang member called on the name of Jesus and cast out devils or prophesied? 
Who was the last prostitute that you know of that claim to have done wonderful works in the name of Jesus?

Therefore plain reason leads us to the conclusion that these are church folks to whom Jesus replies, "I never knew you: depart from me ye that work iniquity."

Consider the magnitude of the statement, for just a moment.
Notice Jesus specific words to the, 'church people.' "I NEVER KNEW YOU!"

He didn't say you got saved and then backslid, he didn't say you were on the right path but you slipped up along the way, he says he never knew you! 

I argue that Jesus never knew these people because of the iniquity that they worked.

Because of their lawless acts. 
These people were made sinners because of their rejection of God's law, because their life operated outside of the law of God they were effectively "workers of iniquity."

And the 3rd chapter of 1John tells us very plainly, exactly what sin is...

"Whosoever committeth sin transgresseth also the law: for sin IS the transgression of the law." 1John‬ ‭3‬:‭4‬

And Again:

"And he went through the cities and villages, teaching, and journeying toward Jerusalem. Then said one unto him, Lord, are there few that be saved? And he said unto them, Strive to enter in at the strait gate: for many, I say unto you, will seek to enter in, and shall not be able. When once the master of the house is risen up, and hath shut to the door, and ye begin to stand without, and to knock at the door, saying, Lord, Lord, open unto us; and he shall answer and say unto you, I know you not whence ye are: Then shall ye begin to say, We have eaten and drunk in thy presence, and thou hast taught in our streets. But he shall say, I tell you, I know you not whence ye are; depart from me, all ye workers of iniquity. There shall be weeping and gnashing of teeth, when ye shall see Abraham, and Isaac, and Jacob, and all the prophets, in the kingdom of God, and you yourselves thrust out." Luke‬ ‭13‬:‭22-28‬

Study to show thyself approved unto God... 2Timothy 2:15
— ... Save Yourselves from this untoward generation! Acts 2:40 

May the Lord I add a blessing to the study of his Holy word in Jesus name… Amen
