On these writings they asked as those Jews did, “What are you talking about? We are Christians on the way to spread the Gospel. We are Christians, on the way to prophesy and drive out demons and do many mighty works in the name of the ‘Lord’!” Oh! Oh! Pardon me. Have you not read the words,
“Not everyone who says to Me, Lord, Lord, will enter the kingdom of heaven, but he who does the will of My Father Who is in heaven.
Many will say to Me on that day, Lord, Lord, have we not prophesied in Your name and driven out demons in Your name and done many mighty works in Your name?
And then I will say to them openly (publicly), I never knew you; depart from Me, you who act wickedly [disregarding My commands]. Matthew 7:21-23
Me? You brought me ashore. No longer in that boat. No longer doing my own thing. Go talk to the family? Sure! That’s the thing to do! Really? “Poor Basilia.”
Ha! Not only ‘poor’ but! Well, I am not going to call me names anymore! Let’s just say, Basilia is no longer doing her own thing. Better yet, Basilia now recognizes her own thing different than just ‘writing and publishing and optimizing for her Father to do the rest!
“I Never Knew You…”
Me? Nay! You won’t catch me claiming such amazing powers! At one point of my life, when I was trying life as I saw fit to live, yes, I whine and whine because others were highly honored for their power to cast out demons and such, but! Father paid no mind to my whining.
Now? No way I want to hear those four most horrible words. But! I don’t have to worry about that. Why? Despite all my whining Father has not given me such powers or commonly called, ‘gifts’ to quote our Brother Paul. I don’t even have a power to kill that roach that came to intrude in my little piece of heaven the other morning. I think Father got rid of it as I asked Him to do. I do not see it anymore. Guess that’s my point, you think, dear reader?
