I John 2:15-17...Love not the
world, neither the things that are in the world. If any man love the
world, the love of the Father is not in him.  For all that is in the
world, the lust of the flesh, and the lust of the eyes, and the pride
of life, is not of the Father, but is of the world.  And the world
passeth away, and the lust thereof: but he that doeth the will of God
abideth for ever.
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
The phrase Lord Lord, can also mean teacher teacher.
The point that Jesus is attempting to make in this verse is that it
is one thing to talk a good Christianity, and the quite another to live
a good Christianity.
Jesus just now finished teaching about good and bad fruit. And
that by their fruits, or by their lifestyle you will know them. You can
only hide it for so long. Eventually the real you will come out in
your lifestyle and your mouth. Meaning that Heaven is reserved for
those who not only talk a good Christianity, but live a good
Christianity by daily and consistently living the teachings of Jesus as
presented in His perfect and inspired Word, the Bible. And only a
really and truly saved born again believer can live daily and
consistently, the spiritual truths of the Bible.
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?
this verse, Jesus takes us to an event that is yet futuristic. And
that being, the GREAT WITH THRONE OF JUDGEMENT found in Revelation
Revelation 20:11-15... And I
saw a great white throne, and him that sat on it, from whose face the
earth and the heaven fled away; and there was found no place for them.
 And I saw the dead, small and great, stand before God; and the
books were opened: and another book was opened, which is the book of
life: and the dead were judged out of those things which were written in
the books, according to their works.  And the sea gave up the dead
which were in it; and death and hell delivered up the dead which were in
them: and they were judged every man according to their works.  And
death and hell were cast into the lake of fire. This is the second
death.  And whosoever was not found written in the book of life was
cast into the lake of fire.
Herein you will find and witness man's most horrible moment in
history. This is when Jesus judges the unsaved. Those who were to
proud to bend the knee or the heart to the everlasting Gospel of Jesus
Not only that, but it is my opinion, based on the wording
Revelation chapter 21, that those of us who are saved and born again
will be there to witness this judgment of the eternal damned.
It will be that as Jesus pronounces the eternal judgment upon the
unsaved, that they will begin to complain and challenge the judgement of
Jesus. They will argue that they were pastors, deacons, Bible
teachers, Sunday school workers, Church workers and various types and
According to Revelation 20:15,
this is when Jesus will refer to the Book of Life. In the pages of
this book are the names of persons who did bow the knee and the heart to
the Everlasting Gospel of Jesus Christ. For the people who being judged at the Great White Throne of Judgment
will not be found in this book. Thus, sealing their final doom to the
Lake of Fire with Satan, the Anti-Christ, the False Prophet and the
of the people being consigned to the eternal flames of this fire, are
what I call CRACK BABIES. What are CRACK BABIES? CRACK BABIES are
those adults who grew up on Church and going to Church is all they have
Since infancy, they have been at Church for Sunday school, Sunday
morning, Sunday night, Wednesday night, youth events, revivals and
conferences, Thursday night visitation and even Church lawn and clean up
day. If those Church doors are open, they are there.
Some of these CRACK BABIES
have been/are Pastors, deacons, Church trustees, Bible College/Seminary
Professors, faithful members and attendees of the Church. Yet there is
one great problems with them. They have never been save. They are not
saved now. Despite their faithful positions and attendance, if they
were to die right now, they would not go to Heaven. So what happened?
Over the years, CRACK BABIES
have been assumed right into hell. Everyone just assumed that either
the Sunday School teacher, the Pastor, someone who is a saved and born
again influence in their life has led them to the Lord.
HENCE, THESE CHILDREN BECOME ADULTS WHO HAVE FALLEN THROUGH THE CRACKS OF THE CHURCH SYSTEM. THEY ARE CRACK BABIES!
THEY FELL THROUGH THE CRACKS! THEY ARE BEING ASSUMED RIGHT INTO HELL!
EVERYONE ELSE JUST ASSUMES THAT SOMEWHERE, SOME TIME, SOMEBODY ELSE LED
THEM TO THE LORD! WELL, WHEN IT COMES TO CRACK BABIES, THEY DID NOT! IT NEVER HAPPENED!
And now today our Churches, our pulpits and our Church educational
departments are being led by people who have never been born again. And
being led by people who really do truly think they are OK with God and
they are not. And yet this human tragedy goes on day, after day, after
day, and no one is catching it.
Parents must never assume that someone in the Church led your child
to Christ. Do not assume. Get up into your child's face and make
sure. Do not be afraid to ask the uncomfortable questions.
Uncomfortable questions today, can avoid a horrible Lake of Fire
They are called CRACK BABIES. These are the Church members who over the years fell through the cracks of the Church system.
 And then will I profess unto them, I never knew you: depart from me, ye that work iniquity.
Jesus is saying that He has never acknowledged the person and that
He never will. The only thing that Jesus will acknowledge is that there
is no relation between Him and the eternal condemned. And that there
will be a relation between the two.
I want you to notice that the works of righteousness and acts of
holiness performed by those who are unsaved are considered by Christ as
works of iniquity.
Isaiah 64:6...But we are all as an
unclean thing, and all our righteousnesses are as filthy rags; and we
all do fade as a leaf; and our iniquities, like the wind, have taken us
Ephesians 2:8-9...For by grace
are ye saved through faith; and that not of yourselves: it is the gift
of God:  Not of works, lest any man should boast.
Therefore whosoever heareth these sayings of mine, and doeth them, I
will liken him unto a wise man, which built his house upon a rock:
The type of hearing in which Jesus is speaking of is a hearing that leads to action. In John 3:16,
the word believeth is an action word. If you truly believe it, then
you will take action. This is the point in which Jesus is attempting to
House, as used in this verse, is a pictorial of the life one has
built. Jesus says that a wise man will built his house/life on a rock.
James 1:22-25...But be ye doers of
the word, and not hearers only, deceiving your own selves.  For if
any be a hearer of the word, and not a doer, he is like unto a man
beholding his natural face in a glass:  For he beholdeth himself,
and goeth his way, and straightway forgetteth what manner of man he was.
 But whoso looketh into the perfect law of liberty, and continueth
therein, he being not a forgetful hearer, but a doer of the work, this
man shall be blessed in his deed.
In Matthew 16, Peter tells Jesus that he and the disciples
believes that he is the Christ, the Son of the living God. Jesus
responds by telling Peter that upon this rock, or upon the fact that
Jesus is the Christ, the Son of the Living God, Jesus will build His
What Jesus is speaking of, is that a house, or human life, should
be built on the rock. And this rock of Jesus Christ, the Son of the
Matthew 16:13-18...When Jesus came
into the coasts of Caesarea Philippi, he asked his disciples, saying,
Whom do men say that I the Son of man am?  And they said, Some say
that thou art John the Baptist: some, Elias; and others, Jeremias, or
one of the prophets.  He saith unto them, But whom say ye that I am?
 And Simon Peter answered and said, Thou art the Christ, the Son of
the living God.  And Jesus answered and said unto him, Blessed art
thou, Simon Barjona: for flesh and blood hath not revealed it unto thee,
but my Father which is in heaven.  And I say also unto thee, That
thou art Peter, and upon this rock I will build my church; and the gates
of hell shall not prevail against it.
And the rain descended, and the floods came, and the winds blew, and
beat upon that house; and it fell not: for it was founded upon a rock.
Jesus is using the example of weather and nature in order that he
might achieve the summery in which He is attempting to complete.
The foul weather, the floods, the hurricanes, and the destruction,
are all in summery of the trials, testings and temptations which the
devil will through at all who are saved born again believers, on a quite
The house is indicative of our daily lives which we live. And when
the devil begins to beat upon our lives with the storms in which he can
throw at us, we will survive. We will survive because our lives are
built on the solid rock of Jesus Christ. This solid rock is that Jesus
Christ is the Son of the living God. We will survive when our lives and
our eternities are built on the foundation of His deity.
And every one that heareth these sayings of mine, and doeth them not,
shall be likened unto a foolish man, which built his house upon the
In this scenario Jesus gives us yet another analogy on building our
lives. Here the sand represents the world, the flesh and the devil.
It represents building your life on the lusts and sin of the unsaved world.
Building your life on the sins and lusts of this world, is like a
man who is going to attempt to build a shack of a house on the beach at
low tide. That will be fine until it is time for high tide.
Jesus says that hearing His words and yet doing them not, is just
like a man who would attempt to build such a house in wet shifting
And the rain descended, and the floods came, and the winds blew, and
beat upon that house; and it fell: and great was the fall of it.
Again, the house represents a pictorial of this man's life. He
built his life on the shifting and unstable sands of the world, the
flesh and the devil. He built his life on the sands of sin. And when
the trials, testings and tribulations of life came along, unlike his
predecessor in verses 24-25, who built his life on the solid rock of
Jesus Christ, this man's house fell to the ground and failed miserably.
This man did not follow the instructions of Jesus Christ concerning
building his life on Christ. When one makes the conscious choice to
disregard the instructions of Jesus, they have already doomed their life
to failure and collapse.
 And it came to pass, when Jesus had ended these sayings, the people were astonished at his doctrine:
Notice the people did not have to sit through yet more boring and
shallow jokes, stories, illustrations, sob stories, cheap shots, or the
latest news from the religious headquarters. Nor have to sit through yet
another boring discourse as to what is going on in the political
Jesus was not a preacher/teacher that went on and on and on and on
about Himself like the people had been used to from the religiosity at
Instead, Jesus taught sound Scriptural Doctrine/Theology. He
taught as someone who knew and understood what He was talking about.
The people, apparently, were not used to hearing such teaching and
actually being spiritually fed.
 For he taught them as one having authority, and not as the scribes.
When Jesus would teach/preach, He would speak as someone who not
only knew what they were talking about, but also, as someone who had His
thoughts well organized and prepared for presentation.
While speaking Jesus demonstrated courage and the fact that He knew
wherein He stood. Everything that Jesus said was always something well
worth listening to.
Jesus' hearers never left felling like this was time wasted. And
that feeling was a feeling that they never had with the scribes or the
religiosity at the synagogue.
