NOT ALL THAT SAY, "LORD, LORD" ARE IN THE KINGDOM OF GOD
Not all that say, "Lord, Lord" are in the kingdom of God. Many people who think that they are Christians are not. They think that going to church and serving the Lord according to their own doctrines and standards is good enough, but it is not. The Lord has a question for these peopleLuke 6:46 And why call ye me, Lord, Lord, and do not the things which I say?
At the end, when all things are to be settled up, many people are going to seek to enter into the kingdom, and they shall not be able. The door will be shut and they will be saying "Lord, Lord" again on that day, but they shall not enter. They will want the Lord to open the door to them, but they are not part of his house and they shall not enter. Lord's commandments are not grievous (reference 1 John 5:3); in his presence is life, yea, he is the life (reference John 14:6). Now is the time to seek the Lord.Luke 13:22 And he went through the cities and villages, teaching, and journeying toward Jerusalem.
23 Then said one unto him, Lord, are there few that be saved? And he said unto them,
24 Strive to enter in at the strait gate: for MANY, I say unto you, WILL SEEK TO ENTER IN, AND SHALL NOT BE ABLE.
25 When once the master of the house is risen up, and hath shut to the door, and ye begin to stand without, and to knock at the door, saying, **Lord, Lord,** open unto us; and he shall answer and say unto you, I know you not whence ye are:
26 Then shall ye begin to say, We have eaten and drunk in thy presence, and thou hast taught in our streets.
27 But he shall say, I tell you, I know you not whence ye are; depart from me, all ye workers of iniquity.
28 There shall be weeping and gnashing of teeth, when ye shall see Abraham, and Isaac, and Jacob, and all the prophets, in the kingdom of God, and you yourselves thrust out.
29 And they shall come from the east, and from the west, and from the north, and from the south, and shall sit down in the kingdom of God.
30 And, behold, there are last which shall be first, and there are first which shall be last.
