"It is always God's desire that those who proclaim the gospel be righteous, yet when an evil or immoral person preaches His Word, God can still work in the hearts of those who receive His Word, with commitment to Christ. God does not endorse an unrighteous preacher of the gospel, but, He will endorse Biblical truth and these who accept it in faith." - The Full Life Study Bible
"The power of working miracles had no necessary connection with piety." - Barnes' Notes
"Success, as the world counts it, is not a criterion of one's knowledge of Christ and relation to Him." - Robertson's Word Pictures

God cannot and will not endorse an unrighteous Preacher of the Gospel - even though he may be operating in the miraculous.

This is where the multitudes are deceived. They think that because there are signs and wonders performed in a man's ministry that he is of God... God is well pleased with him...or that He is endorsing his ministry. Nothing could be further than the truth!

The Lord Jesus in Matthew 7 "blasted" all the false professors who would do things in His Name, yet not do the will of His Father. In His statements, He made it plain and clear that He doesn't accept shadows without substance. He doesn't endorse any ministry that calls Him "Lord," yet lives to please Self. He made it very evident that the acid test for every ministry or every Christian life - the decisive test of being in the Kingdom - is obedience to the will of the Father. This marks men and women as true followers of Him.

In Matthew 7:21-23, He said - "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 heaven. 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? And then will I profess unto them, I never knew you: depart from Me, ye that work iniquity."

Here Jesus emphasized the sharp contrast between the mere talkers and the doers of His will.There were those who were calling Him Lord and Master - who were professing subjection to Him.Because of their mere profession, they were consequently claiming admittance into the
