In the religion of the lost, Jesus said, “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!’” (Matthew 7:22-23 NKJV). What could be wrong with prophesying, casting out demons, or doing wonders in the name of Christ? Those miracles listed by Jesus for believers were to last only until the New Testament was written: “And they went out and preached everywhere, the Lord working with them and confirming the word through the accompanying signs. Amen.” (Mark 16:17-20 NKJV). Since then, the faith “was once for all delivered to the saints” (Jude 3 NKJV), and in the Bible. Anyone claiming to do those miracles, is without Jesus’ authority!
