Most believers believe that so long as we keep the Lord's name, pray often, read the Bible and have meetings, and so long as we abandon things, expend and work painstakingly for the Lord, then this is a true belief in the Lord, and we will be able to be raptured into the kingdom of heaven when the Lord returns. Is this kind of view correct? The Lord Jesus said, "Many will say to me in that day, Lord, Lord, have we not prophesied in your name? And in your name have cast out devils? And in your name done many wonderful works? And then will I profess to them, I never knew you: depart from me, you that work iniquity" (Matthew 7: 22-23). Almighty God says, "I do not care how meritorious your hard work is, how impressive your qualifications, how closely you follow Me, how renowned you are, or how improved your attitude; so long as you have not done what I have demanded, you will never be able to win My praise" (The Word Appears in the Flesh).
