Why do you call me Lord?

Because of some comments I have gotten lately I wanted to share this article with you.
Peace Tim

Matthew 25:24-46
24 "Then he who had received the one talent came and said, 'Lord, I knew you to be a hard man, reaping where you have not sown, and gathering where you have not scattered seed.

25 'And I was afraid, and went and hid your talent in the ground. Look, there you have what is yours.'

26 "But his lord answered and said to him, 'You wicked and lazy servant, you knew that I reap where I have not sown, and gather where I have not scattered seed.

27 'So you ought to have deposited my money with the bankers, and at my coming I would have received back my own with interest.

28 'Therefore take the talent from him, and give it to him who has ten talents.

29 'For to everyone who has, more will be given, and he will have abundance; but from him who does not have, even what he has will be taken away.

30 'And cast the unprofitable servant into the outer darkness. There will be weeping and gnashing of teeth.'

31 "When the Son of Man comes in His glory, and all the holy angels with Him, then He will sit on the throne of His glory.

32 "All the nations will be gathered before Him, and He will separate them one from another, as a shepherd divides his sheep from the goats.

33 "And He will set the sheep on His right hand, but the goats on the left.

34 "Then the King will say to those on His right hand, 'Come, you blessed of My Father, inherit the kingdom prepared for you from the foundation of the world:

35 'for I was hungry and you gave Me food; I was thirsty and you gave Me drink; I was a stranger and you took Me in;

36 'I was naked and you clothed Me; I was sick and you visited Me; I was in prison and you came to Me.'

37 "Then the righteous will answer Him, saying, 'Lord, when did we see You hungry and feed You, or thirsty and give You drink?

38 'When did we see You a stranger and take You in, or naked and clothe You?

39 'Or when did we see You sick, or in prison, and come to You?' 40 "And the King will answer and say to them, 'Assuredly, I say to you, inasmuch as you did it to one of the least of these My brethren, you did it to Me.'

41 "Then He will also say to those on the left hand, 'Depart from Me, you cursed, into the everlasting fire prepared for the devil and his angels:

42 'for I was hungry and you gave Me no food; I was thirsty and you gave Me no drink;

43 'I was a stranger and you did not take Me in, naked and you did not clothe Me, sick and in prison and you did not visit Me.'

44 "Then they also will answer Him, saying, 'Lord, when did we see You hungry or thirsty or a stranger or naked or sick or in prison, and did not minister to You?'

45 "Then He will answer them, saying, 'Assuredly, I say to you, inasmuch as you did not do it to one of the least of these, you did not do it to Me.'

46 "And these will go away into everlasting punishment, but the righteous into eternal life."

There are many genuine born again Christians in Churches today, but unfortunately many mainstream church Shepard's are deceiving much of their congregations with doctrines of devils.

Most churches in Australia and in the West are teaching the prosperity doctrine, and are claiming it is from God even though it's clear the whole prosperity teaching is satanically inspired to distance people from God. If you support and belong to a church that is teaching the prosperity doctrine, this clearly demonstrates that you are apart of a church that does not bear any good fruit, because it isn't following Christ's commandments, which are designed to bear fruit. Jesus said, "You shall love the Lord your God with all your heart, with all your soul, and with all your mind. This is the first and great commandment. And the second is like it: 'You shall love your neighbor as yourself.'On these two commandments hang all the Law and the Prophets" (Matthew 22:37-40). This is NOT an attack on all church congregations, as there are many genuine and sincere church goers who love the Lord and are going to heaven who attend these churches, however many of them are victims of False Shepard's who are deceiving the sheep and goats.

Matt 3:10
10 "And even now the ax is laid to the root of the trees. Therefore every tree which does not bear good fruit is cut down and thrown into the fire.

You cannot bear fruit if you are not obeying Jesus, churches who claim to be doing good works and bearing fruit are simply not bearing fruit, because you cannot bear fruit to God's Kingdom if you are disobeying Jesus. The churches may be able to put on a show and dance about how they are doing good works etc, but if they are not obeying Jesus their fruit is useless to God. You cannot bear fruit without Jesus Christ who is the Vine.

John 15:4-6
4 "Abide in Me, and I in you. As the branch cannot bear fruit of itself, unless it abides in the vine, neither can you, unless you abide in Me.

5 "I am the vine, you are the branches. He who abides in Me, and I in him, bears much fruit; for without Me you can do nothing.

6 "If anyone does not abide in Me, he is cast out as a branch and is withered; and they gather them and throw them into the fire, and they are burned.

Do you belong to a church full of sheep? Or do you belong to a church that is full of goats?
Just because someone worships Jesus with their lips and calls him Lord, and seems to cast out devils and do wonders in His name, does this mean that the church congregation is saved? Let's look at some words from Jesus Christ to shed some light on this matter:

Matthew 7:22-23
22 "Many will say to Me in that day, 'Lord, Lord, have we not prophesied in Your name, cast out demons in Your name, and done many wonders in Your name?'

23 "And then I will declare to them, 'I never knew you; depart from Me, you who practice lawlessness!'

Calling Jesus Lord and doing wonders in His name simply does not guarantee eternal life in Heaven. To be truly born again of the spirit and to have eternal life in Heaven after you die, your heart needs to be close to Jesus. "Wherefore the Lord said, For as much as this people draw near me with their mouth, and with their lips do honor me, but have removed their heart far from me." (Isaiah 29:13). Many churches do not have their hearts close to Jesus, because they simply do not follow his commandments. To have your heart close to Jesus you must love Him, Jesus said, "If you love me, keep my commandments" (John 14:15).

Many of these prosperity doctrine churches are claiming that it is God's will that we store up treasures here on earth, as all the treasures we store up on earth are blessings from God, and that God wants us to have luxury houses and extravagant cars and the most expensive brand name clothes. This prosperity doctrine of extravagant living and striving to be rich teaching is demonically inspired, and anyone teaching it is defying the fundamental commandments of Jesus Christ. Jesus said, "Do not lay up for yourselves treasures on earth, where moth and rust destroy and where thieves break in and steal; but lay up for your selves treasures in heaven, where neither moth nor rust destroys and where thieves do not break in and steal. For where your treasure is, there your heart will be also" (Matthew 6:19-21). Is your church teaching you to store up treasures on earth? If yes, then your heart cannot be in Heaven close to Jesus, because Jesus said "where your treasure is, there your heart will be also."

Jesus clearly gave a commandment when he said "Do not lay up for yourselves treasures on earth", any church teaching any contradicting prosperity doctrine hates Jesus, because Jesus said; "If you love me, keep my commandments." So here we see a clear example of how many of these corrupt prosperity churches are worshiping Jesus with their lips and mouths, but whose hearts are FAR from Him. In order to be born again and be saved you must give your heart to the Lord, and you cannot give your heart to the Lord if your heart is far from Him when you listen and practice the lies of a corrupt prosperity preacher. It's a very sad fate for the Christians who attend these churches, because if your heart is far from Jesus you simply cannot give your heart to Him and be born again, because to know Jesus your heart needs to be close to Him. Jesus clearly said calling Him Lord is not enough and that if he does not know you, he will tell you to depart from Him, and He will cast you into everlasting punishment. (Matthew 7: 22-23).

Jesus said that many would come to Him and say; "Lord didn't we cast out devils in your name and do many wonders?" And Jesus is going to say to them, "I never knew you; depart from Me." The key words here are: "I never knew you". To know Jesus your heart needs to be in Heaven with Him. If your storing treasures up here on earth, Jesus said that it's impossible for your heart to be in Heaven with Him to know Him, because He said, "For where your treasure is, there your heart will be also."

If you do not want Jesus to say, "I never knew you; depart from me, you who practice lawlessness", you need to stop following the demonic prosperity doctrine of storing up treasures on earth, and you need to start storing up treasures in Heaven by: spending your money on gospel tracts to give out on the street, purchasing bibles to send to China and third world nations, and giving money to homeless people on the street; instead of sending money to a prosperity preacher who lives in a mansion, drives a sports car and who claims you can serve mammon and God. Prosperity preachers are serving Satan and cannot be serving God, Jesus clearly said, "No man can serve two masters: for either he will hate the one, and love the other; or else he will hold to the one, and despise the other. You cannot serve God and mammon" (Matthew 6:24).

This is not an attack against all Christians who attend churches that teach the prosperity doctrine, there are many sincere Christians who are sheep in these churches but are being deceived by False Shepard's.

I pray the sheep who are being deceived in these churches by False Shepard's will "Come out from among them and be separate, says the Lord. Do not touch what is unclean, and I will receive you." Then God will say"I will be a Father to you, and you shall be My sons and daughters, says the Lord Almighty." (2 Cor 6:17-18)
