32 But of that day and that hour knoweth no man, no, not the angels which are in heaven, neither the Son (Jesus Christ), but the Father.
33 Take ye heed, watch and pray: for ye know not when the time is.
34 For the Son of man (Jesus Christ) is as a man taking a far journey, who left his house, and gave authority to his servants, and to every man his work, and commanded the porter to watch.
35 Watch ye therefore: for ye know not when the master of the house cometh, at even, or at midnight, or at the cockcrowing, or in the morning:
36 Lest coming suddenly he (Jesus Christ) find you sleeping.
37 And what I say unto you I say unto all, Watch.

12 So after he (Jesus Christ) had washed their feet, and had taken his garments, and was set down again, he said unto them, Know ye what I have done to you?

14 If I then, your Lord and Master, have washed your feet; ye also ought to wash one another’s feet.
15 For I (Jesus Christ) have given you an example, that ye should do as I have done to you.
16 Verily, verily, I say unto you, The servant is not greater than his lord (Jesus Christ); neither he that is sent greater than he that sent him.
17 If ye know these things, happy are ye if ye do them.

19 Nevertheless the foundation of God standeth sure, having this seal, The Lord (Jesus Christ) knoweth them that are his. And, Let every one that nameth the name of (Jesus) Christ depart from iniquity.
20 But in a great house there are not only vessels of gold and of silver, but also of wood and of earth; and some to honour, and some to dishonour.
21 If a man therefore purge himself from these (dishonourable iniquities), he shall be a vessel unto honour, sanctified, and meet for the master’s use, and prepared unto every good work.
22 Flee also youthful lusts: but follow righteousness, faith, charity, peace, with them that call on the Lord (Jesus Christ) out of a pure heart.

Matthew 7:23 means 2 very important things;
i.e. – LYING & WICKEDNESS!
1. Iniquity is LYING & CLAIMING you do the works, when it is Jesus Christ who is actually doing the works!
2. Iniquity means being a worker of iniquity, or a person who loves to sin, and a person who lives to sin!
Matthew 7:21-23 KJV
21 (Jesus Christ said,) Not every one that saith unto me, Lord (Jesus Christ), Lord (Jesus Christ), shall enter into the kingdom of heaven; but he that doeth the will of my Father which is in heaven.
22 Many will say to me in that day, Lord (Jesus Christ), Lord (Jesus Christ), have we not prophesied in thy name? and in thy name have cast out devils? and in thy name done many wonderful works?
23 And then will I (Jesus Christ) profess unto them, I never knew you: depart from me, ye that work iniquity.
. . .
John 6:37-40 KJV
37 (Jesus Christ said,) All that the Father giveth me shall come to me; and him that cometh to me I will in no wise cast out.
38 For I (Jesus Christ) came down from heaven, not to do mine own will, but the will of him that sent me.
39 And this is the Father’s will which hath sent me, that of all which he hath given me I should lose nothing, but should raise it up again at the last day.
40 And this is the will of him that sent me, that every one which seeth the Son (Jesus Christ), and believeth on him, may have everlasting life: and I (Jesus Christ) will raise him up at the last day.

15 (Jesus Christ said,) If ye love me, keep my commandments.
16 And I (Jesus Christ) will pray the Father, and he shall give you another Comforter, that he may abide with you for ever;
17 Even the Spirit of truth; whom the world cannot receive, because it seeth him not, neither knoweth him: but ye know him; for he dwelleth with you, and shall be in you.
18 I (Jesus Christ) will not leave you comfortless: I will come to you.
19 Yet a little while, and the world seeth me no more; but ye see me: because I live, ye shall live also.
20 At that day ye shall know that I am in my Father, and ye in me, and I in you.
21 He that hath my commandments, and keepeth them, he it is that loveth me: and he that loveth me shall be loved of my Father, and I will love him, and will manifest myself to him.

2 Thessalonians 2:1-12 KJV
1 Now we beseech you, brethren, by the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ, and by our gathering together unto him,
2 That ye be not soon shaken in mind, or be troubled, neither by spirit, nor by word, nor by letter as from us, as that the day of (Jesus) Christ is at hand.
3 Let no man deceive you by any means: for that day shall not come, except there come a falling away first, and that man of sin (the antichrist; the first beast) be revealed, the son of perdition;
4 Who opposeth and exalteth himself above all that is called God, or that is worshipped; so that he as God sitteth in the temple of God, shewing himself that he is God.
5 Remember ye not, that, when I was yet with you, I told you these things?
6 And now ye know what withholdeth that he might be revealed in his time.
7 For the mystery of iniquity doth already work: only he who now letteth will let, until he be taken out of the way.
8 And then shall that Wicked (one) be revealed, whom the Lord shall consume with the spirit of his mouth, and shall destroy with the brightness of his coming:
9 Even him (the antichrist), whose coming is after the working of Satan with all power and signs and lying wonders,
10 And with all deceivableness of unrighteousness in them that perish; because they received not the love of the truth, that they might be saved.
11 And for this cause God shall send them strong delusion, that they should believe a lie:
12 That they all might be damned who believed not the truth, but had pleasure in unrighteousness.
