I have kind of a hard time understanding this passage from Matthew. I understand that all believers of Christ must accept Him as the Lord God and follow the commands He gave in the Gospel and what His apostles wrote also. But the hard thing I do not understand is how can someone cast out demons in the name of Christ and be considered an evil doer and does not do the will of the Father in heaven? With what authority do these people have to be able to cast out demons in the Lord’s name if they are evildoers and being unworthy to enter Gods' kingdom? How are they granted such signs if they are not true believers to have the ability to defeat demons, etc.?
"Not every one who says to me, ‘Lord, Lord,’ shall enter the kingdom of heaven, but he who does the will of my Father who is in heaven. On that day many will say to me, ‘Lord, Lord, did we not prophesy in Your name, and cast out demons in Your name, and do many mighty works in your name?’ And then will I declare to them, 'I never knew you; depart from me, you evil doers.'"
In Matthew 26 verse 29 and 42, why does Jesus sound as if He is unsure or worried about being crucified if His main goal and purpose was to die for our sins?
What is meant by Matthew 9:15?
