Beware Along The Way!

  • 15 "Beware of the false prophets, who come to you in sheep's clothing, but inwardly are ravenous wolves. 16 "You will know them by their fruits. Grapes are not gathered from thorn bushes nor figs from thistles, are they? 17 "So every good tree bears good fruit, but the bad tree bears bad fruit. 18 "A good tree cannot produce bad fruit, nor can a bad tree produce good fruit. 19 "Every tree that does not bear good fruit is cut down and thrown into the fire. 20 "So then, you will know them by their fruits. (Matthew 7:15-20, ESV)

“People who run orchards do not put up with rotten trees.” (Morris, 178)

The danger of self deception
The Danger of Self-Deception…

  • 21 "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 will enter.22 "Many will say to Me on that day, 'Lord, Lord, did we not prophesy in Your name, and in Your name cast out demons, and in Your name perform many miracles?‘ 23 "And then I will declare to them, 'I never knew you; depart from Me, you who practice lawlessness.‘(Matthew 7:21-23, ESV)

We must use the proper standard! (John 12:48)

“For we must all appear before the judgment seat of Christ… “ (2 Corinthians 5:10)

Two builders
Two Builders!

  • 25 "And the rain fell, and the floods came, and the winds blew and slammed against that house; and yet it did not fall, for it had been founded on the rock. 26 "Everyone who hears these words of Mine and does not act on them, will be like a foolish man who built his house on the sand. 27 "The rain fell, and the floods came, and the winds blew and slammed against that house; and it fell--and great was its fall."

Rock or Sand?

15 "If you love Me, you will keep My commandments. (John 14:15, ESV)

Luke 6:46-49

"But why do you call Me 'Lord, Lord,' and do not do the things which I say? 47. Whoever comes to Me, and hears My sayings and does them, I will show you whom he is like: 48. He is like a man building a house, who dug deep and laid the foundation on the rock. And when the flood arose, the stream beat vehemently against that house, and could not shake it, for it was founded on the rock. 49. But he who heard and did nothing is like a man who built a house on the earth without a foundation, against which the stream beat vehemently; and immediately it fell. And the ruin of that house was great."



  • Both heard the words of Jesus

  • Both had the same desire

  • Both built a house (All)

  • Same Kind of house

  • Each house faced the same tests

  • For a time the builders will look the same.
