What Lord Means?

There is no other way to escape this life alive except through Jesus Christ. Like it or not… He has been made both Lord and Christ. Many claim him as Savior, but few even acknowledge that Jesus is Lord too!

What does the word ‘Lord’ actually mean in today’s terms?

In the United States there aren’t any ‘lords’ these days, except for landlords, but other than that there are none. For that reason we in the U.S. don’t fully grasp the concept of lordship in real life terms. Now, if we don’t understand lordship; how can we truly understand what it means to have a Lord over us, and if we can’t truly understand Jesus being Lord, then where does that leave us?

Many call Jesus lord today but most don’t or won’t do everything he says!

That compels reason Him to say, “Not everyone who says to me, ‘Lord, Lord,’ will enter the kingdom of heaven, but only the one who does the will of my Father who is in heaven. Many will say to me on that day, ‘Lord, Lord, did we not prophesy in your name and in your name drive out demons and in your name perform many miracles?’ Then I will tell them plainly, ‘I never knew you. Away from me, you evildoers!’” Matthew 7:21-23

From Jesus’ own word we can understand that calling or making Jesus Lord is not enough. How many times have you heard, “I made Jesus Lord of my life today!” The fact is Jesus is Lord of our lives whether you recognize him as lord or not. It doesn’t even matter what you think. Jesus is both Lord and Christ even to an atheist.

If you believe Jesus is Lord what it really means is that He’s your master. Now a servant of a master must obey the master. One can’t say, “I’ll think about it, I don’t like that idea, or no.” It is not as simple as saying, “Ok Jesus you’re Lord.”

We have to know Jesus. To know Jesus we must obey his commands.

More importantly he has to know us! Just above Jesus said, “I never knew you!” to believers. In other words, “He has to know us! If he doesn’t know us we don’t know Him!

The key to knowing Him Jesus tells us to do the will of the Father. God’s will is that we listen to Jesus. Mose’s spoke of Jesus when He said, “The Lord your God will raise up for you a prophet like me from among you, from your fellow Israelites. You must listen to him.” -Deut. 18:15 (NIV)

To listen to someone is to be taught. Jesus is our teacher of life. Therefore to learn how to live we must do what He says! Like it or not Jesus has commands that we must obey.

Here’s some questions to ask yourself.

“LORD, LORD,” PART II Not every Christian is a Christian.

“LORD, LORD,” PART II Not every Christian is a Christian.

“Enter through the narrow gate. For wide is the gate and broad is the road that leads to destruction, and many enter through it. But small is the gate and narrow the road that leads to life, and only a few find it.“ —Jesus Mt 7:13-14 (NIV)

THE SMALL GATE AND NARROW THE ROAD

Just how small is the gate and narrow is the road that leads to life? Notice that there are two things that must be found to obtain life? The small gate and the narrow road.

The Greek word for ‘small’ is ‘stenos’ meaning strait: Which is a narrow and sometimes dangerous passage that connects two large bodies of water.

Therefore the small gate is a narrow passage between two large kingdoms, the world’s kingdom and the kingdom of Heaven. It’s a very narrow and difficult to navigate suggesting (more…)

Jesus came to fulfill the Law. How did He fulfill the grain offering?

Jesus came to fulfill the Law. How did He fulfill the grain offering?

“When anyone brings a grain offering to the LORD, their offering is to be of the finest flour. They are to pour olive oil on it, put incense on it.” —Leviticus 2:1 (NIV)

Have you ever wondered why the grain offering would have incense added to it? Well I have. For some reason I toil over these obscure questions sometimes ruminating for years. The oil is understandable; but incense? Who wants incense or perfume on their bread?

Also, Jesus said he came to fulfill the law.¹ So how did He fulfill it in this instance? (more…)

Not Everyone who says to me, Lord, Lord … Part 1

Not Everyone who says to me, Lord, Lord … Part 1

Have you made Jesus Lord of your life? Or have you ever prayed for Jesus to come into your heart, or asked Jesus to come into your life, or even accepted Jesus, or said the sinners prayer, or did you ever pray to Jesus for forgiveness of your sin? Then you must read this article.

Why?

The main reason is that Jesus said, “Not everyone who says to me, ‘Lord, Lord,’ will enter the kingdom of heaven, but only the one who does the will of my Father who is in heaven.” —Matt. 7:21 (NIV) — Jesus makes it very clear that not everyone who calls Him Lord will enter the kingdom of heaven!

Therefore, if you call yourself a follower of Jesus it is incumbent upon you and (more…)

Faith, and Works

Faith Alone vs. Faith plus works of God

Lately, I’ve heard a lot of talk regarding faith, the works of God and the works of man coming from the —Salvation by Faith Alone crowd.

Before I go on I would like to define —Salvation by Faith Alone.

“Any work or effort, done by anyone to reach God or to attain a relationship with Him, is completely without merit and unable to satisfy any requirement necessary for a relationship with God at all. Said efforts will leave one devoid of God and not in a relationship with Him at all and this being no matter how one thinks or feels. Therefore, absolutely nothing a person can do within and by one’s own ability can be of use to attain God.”

This doctrine is primarily derived from two verses.
