Why Call Me Lord, Lord and do not the things I say to do?
(See Luke 6 verse 46 thru 49.)

In the Light of Yahweh God's WORD, we can see in the darkness that there are many of the divided churches that are drunk in their own human vanity, and are wallowing in sin's spiritual captivity innately imbedded within their own rebellious flesh. Now in the darkness, these shallow churches are stumbling over each other with the same stupor, and fall into one pile of infantile conformity, loudly crying out that their god is a god of *unconditional love, whereby, anything its rebellious children do is alright in their god's eyes. (*See Isaiah 5 verse 20.) The Holiness of God does not change. From the beginning of Life in Adam, the Spirit of God warns of stealthy sin, and with disobedience to God's warnings, then sin reveals its presence with death, 

Now in their twisting of Scripture, the liberal churches think that the spiritual Commandments of the Lord have been totally eradicated for them with Christ's sacrifice: For they have reasoned, that where there is no law against sin, such as the 10 Commandments, then there is no accountability for their rebellion.  In their cultivated vanity, they fail to understand that the 10 Commandments are warnings revealing the opposing spiritual Law that foments Sin and Death(See Ecclesiastes 5 verse 10.)  Rebellion is entrenched within the deceptive nature of the Law of Sin and Death, and death conceals itself within the veiled self willed flesh of idolatry.  It is the Law of Sin and Death, that stealthily ferments itself within the self willed mind of flesh that declares that there is no law against God, and also that the Eternal God, that is love, loves His children unconditionally.  Now, the deceived have fallen in love with their childish deceptions, for in their self centered minds they are free to do all that they illicitly desire to do without consequences.  Their heretical interpretation of Christ's Sacrifice for sin, has allowed them to form their own undisciplined doctrine, declaring that where there is no law then there can be no sin. (See The Law, a Quagmire of Confusion.) If there is no sin then there is no need for repentance from sin that does not exist. The counterfeit churches continue to brandy about their lie, and foster a false faith, proclaiming the unconditional love of God that allows sin in God's children to go unabated.  But if man's conscience is not hardened then their flesh is witnessing the sin that has found them out. Sin has consequences, and if not confessed and remitted through the Blood of Jesus Christ, then there is no LIFE of Christ to lift them out of death. 

The following Scripture is a conditional statement containing an IF conditional statement  followed with a Then definitive statement. John 8:31-32 (NIV) Jesus said, "If you hold to My teaching, you are really My disciples. Then you will know the TRUTH, and the TRUTH will set you free."  Christ Jesus is the TRUTH, and without the TRUTH of Christ, then you remain imprisoned in your sins and do not know the TRUTH.

But God commended His Love toward us, in that while we were yet sinners, Christ (the TRUTH) died for us. (See Romans 5 verse 8 thru 9.) Are you yet a sinner, in deference to God's Covenant IN the LIFE giving Blood of Christ? God is Love immeasurable, but Yahweh God is the Holy God of Covenant Faith, and IN His Holy Justice, He is a Consuming Fire that completely burns up the chaff from man's confessed workings in sin. Then, If you endure chastening the Almighty treats you as sons: For what son is he whom the Father chastens not. (See Hebrew 12 verse 4 thru 8.) Now the just shall live by faith, but if any one shall draw back (from faith IN the Word of God), then my soul shall have no pleasure in that person.

Ezekiel 3:20 Again, When a righteous man turns from his righteousness, and commits iniquity, and I lay a stumbling-block before him, he shall die: because you have not given him warning, he shall die in his sin, and his righteousness which he has done shall not be remembered; but his blood will I require at your hand.

Ezekiel 33:13 When I shall say to the righteous, that he shall surely live; if he trust to his own righteousness, and commit iniquity, all his righteousness shall not be remembered; but for his iniquity that he has committed, he shall die for it.

Faith is ubiquitous in man; for mankind has developed within himself all forms of faith attributed to his own cultivated incites or his own accomplishments. This kind of faith is near sighted, and can not see afar off, but can only focus on itself. The Almighty God is looking to the One Faith that is profoundly centered IN the TRUTH of His Word that created all things visible and invisible.   This TRUTH is written in the beginning of Chapter 11 of Hebrews: Faith is the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen. For without Faith, it is impossible to please Yahweh God, for they that come to God must believe that He exist, and that He is a rewarder of those that diligently seek Him. (See Hebrews 11 verse 1 and 6.) There is no sin that God cannot forgive, but do be careful of blaspheming against God's Holy Spirit. (See Mathew 12 verse 31 thru 33.) Either Make the tree good and his fruit good, or else the tree is corrupt and its fruit is corrupt: For the tree is known by his fruit.

Now if God did not spare the natural branches (of Israel), then take heed lest He also spare not thee. Therefore, behold the goodness and the severity of God: On them which fell, severity. But toward thee goodness, if you continue in His Goodness, otherwise you also shall be cut off. (See Romans 11 verse 16 thru 22.)

I AM the TRUE Vine, and My Father is the Gardener. 2 Every branch in Me that does not produce fruit, Yahweh takes away: And every branch that produces fruit, Yahweh prunes the branch so that it will produce more fruit. 4 Abide in Me and I will abide in you. Even as the branch cannot produce fruit by itself, for the branch must abide in the Vine. So then, you can not produce fruit unless you abide in the Me.  I AM the Vine, you are the branches. Without Me you bring forth no fruit [or nothing of value in the LOVE of Yahweh]. 6 If a man does not abide in Me, he is cast forth as a branch and withers, and men gather them up, and cast them into the fire.   (See John  15 verse 1 thru 6.)

Martin Luther wrote some good things, but even so he also fomented fallacies that are perpetuated by Luther's written thoughts found in  Sin Boldly. This weed seed of rebellion has become rooted in the churches of human vanity. With their self idolatry, they cloak themselves with their misguided interpretation of Paul's writings in Romans chapter 8 verses 35 through 39. They miss the small English word "IN", which has huge repercussion to those who are not IN CHRIST JESUS.  This small English word "IN" is "EN", that IN the Greek Testament means "A fixed position as IN Place, IN Time, IN State".  Do not  overlook that small word IN, for the LOVE of Yahweh GOD is embedded IN His Only Begotten Son Christ Jesus, and Yahweh God's Love is for His repentant people who are IN the Will of God Almighty that is "IN" Christ Jesus.   Yahweh's Holy Presence flows throughout the whole of Christ's Body, for God's Spirit of TRUTH conceived LIFE IN Christ's Body because of the immeasurable Love that Yahweh God has for those who follow the TRUTH.  If the Holy Spirit of God is absent in the people who are called to Life, then it is because they continue to live in the power of  their sinful flesh, and remain chained to their death.  If they continue in their rebellion then they have chosen their own way, and have removed themselves from Yahweh's Holy Will that they should live IN their Salvation "IN" Christ Jesus. (See Romans 8 verse 9.) For God IN His Love for mankind, gave His Only Begotten Son, so that whosoever believes IN Christ and lives IN Christ Jesus, should not perish but have everlasting Life. (See John 3 verse 16.)  However, If you live after the flesh you shall die: But if you through the Holy Spirit do kill the deeds of the body, (then) you shall live, for as many are led by the Holy Spirit of God, they are the sons of God. (See Romans 8 verse 12 thru 14.)

The Almighty God of Creation is the God of Order, and no where in Scripture do we legitimately see that Yahweh God has eradicated His warning laws inscribed in the book of Deuteronomy that were and are ordained within His Eternal Wisdom.  From the beginning, all of the Creator's laws (Torah) in His Word were given for the remarkable dynamics within His good Universe: Other wise gravity does not exist, and all particle things would fly apart from each other, for without gravity it is impossible for the universe to exist.  All things of the universe are under the good power of  Gravity, and this includes all people for we are all under the influence of Gravity. All things of this universe are not known by ignorant man, but it is wise to abide by the good known universal laws rather than break any one of them and suffer the inevitable consequences.  So then the Torah of God was given to mankind for the safety of all people. The 10 Commandments of God Almighty are good, holy and just, for they are warning signs that reveal an otherwise unknown independent law of rebellion called the 'Law of Sin and Death' that brings only death to all of mankind.  The apostle Paul was the first to call the anti law of rebellion, 'The Law of Sin and Death'.    

Sin existed before the Commandments were given to Israel, but Israel did not know of sin's consequences of condemnation even to death that came under God's warnings given in the Decalogue Commandments.  God gave warning instructions of what a person must avoid in order to remain under His Covering protection. However, the keeping of the Law in Commandments does not justify sinning mankind; for the Holy God of Justice had already determined that all of mankind are guilty of sin in the flesh and will die in sin's rebellion.  But Merciful God is not willing that any one should perish in their sinfulness, but that all should come to Him in humble repentance and that remission for sin should be preached IN His Name in all nations, beginning at JerusalemThis is My Blood shed for many for the remission of sin: This do \in remembrance of why I died.  (Consider also the prodigal seen in Luke 15 verse 18 thru 22.) An other example of God's willingness to give His mercy to a repentant person is seen in the book of the Prophet Jeremiah.  The writings speak of Israel's harlotry with their whoredoms as being the cause for the pollution of the land; and yet in spite of the great debauchery against God, the Lord nevertheless calls for Israel to return to Him. However, their sinful flesh would not allow for their return, for in the blindness of their calloused heart, they could not see that it was God's showers of Blessing that had enriched the nation of Israel in the first place. (See Jeremiah 3 verse 1 thru 3.)  The Lord's solution for Israel's return, is with a condition that can be seen in Jeremiah 4 verse 1 thru 4.  Repentance seems to be a stumbling block to those who are right in their own eyes.  The Song of Moses, seen in Deuteronomy, is a witness of Israel's historical plight while traversing time in their own collective will, but ending with God's justice over His enemies, and giving His mercy to His Land with His people of Israel. (See Deuteronomy 32 verse 39 thru 43.)

God's instructions in the Ten Commandments, were warning signs and were established by the Only Almighty God of creation TO BE preventative in time, and so they remain today in their spiritual nature.  Yahweh God's spiritual Law in Commandments was etched in Rock by the Finger of God to reveal idolatrous sin to the chosen nation of Israel.   The preventative Laws of God were to enable the Hebrews to bring forth in their flesh, the Purity of Holy God's Personal Word that would be conceived in the same genetic flesh from God's creation of the first Adam. (See Galatians 3 verse 19.) Israel broke their Covenant with God, but God Almighty, True to His Word of Salvation, would intervene in the flow of time, and see to it that the TRUTH of His Covenant Word would be born Emmanuel, that is God with us.  For the TRUTH of Yahweh God would be the Last Man/Adam conceived from the Seed of the first Man/Adam.  Now that the Incarnate Yeshua haMashiach, Jesus the Christ has come in the Hebrew flesh of Man/Adam to redeem mankind by Faith in the Eternal God,  then what do we do with God's Law.  It should be obvious that God's righteous Law, in the Ten Commandments, remains effectual warning signs to all people, and will continue to reveal the devastating nature of sin's depravity.  Therefore, the Law of God set in the Ten Commandments, continues to reveal sin's condemnation of death to self idolatrous mankind, and thereby would bring the dying people of the world to the saving Grace IN the  knowledge  of the TRUTH of the victorious Man Christ Jesus and His Holy Righteousness. (See Romans 3 verse 31.)

Let's not continue in our human ignorance, and let us learn to be wise in the Eternal Wisdom of the Lord.   In His Eternal Wisdom, the Almighty God gave His Law in Commandments to Israel, for the spiritual Commandments were to reveal another law, the renegade Law of Sin and Death that is totally against the Holy, Just, Eternal Yahweh God the Almighty.  Do we continue to refute the Wisdom of Eternal God, even though the Great I AM created the universe with its Laws that sustains the universe's existence. 

God's Laws of Grace in His Ten Commandments has come by the way of Moses, so that the redeeming Faith IN God is come IN TRUTH by the WAY of Christ Jesus, The redeemed Paul writes in Romans:  Do we make void the Law because of faith?  God forbids: Yes we establish His Laws.

The Lord is well pleased for His Righteousness' sake; He will magnify the law and make it honorable. But this is a people robbed and spoiled; they are all of them snared in holes, and they are hid in prison houses: They are for a prey, and none delivers for a spoil, and none says, Restore. Who among you will give ear to this? Who will hearken and hear for the time to come?  Who gave Jacob for a spoil, and Israel to the robbers? Did not the Lord, He against Whom we have sinned? For they would not walk in His ways, neither were they obedient unto His law. (Isaiah 42 verse 21 thru 24.)

The apostle Paul, says he was alive once, (in his new birth of his soul) then sin and its death revived in his mind, for God's good, holy and just Laws in Commandments found him out to be dead in his sin and trespasses.  What shall we say then.  Is the Law sin? Nay, God forbid: For I had not known sin except by the Law (Decalogue): For I had not known lust, except the Law said: Thou shall not covet. Now, Paul, in the surprise of his demise, cries out: Who will save me from this body of death?  Thank God for Jesus Christ our Lord.  The New Covenant of God, is in the Life Giving Blood of Christ Jesus, and His LIFE is the only WAY that leads us IN Christ's Righteousness. Without the LIFE of Christ Jesus, man is dead in their sin, and completely absent of the WAY, and the TRUTH that leads to LIFE. The soul may be sealed for Salvation, but sin and death remains in the very flesh that houses the soul of our being. Confusion is set in motion by sin, and when the Commandments find us out in our sin, then what are we to do when we discover ourselves in this Body of Death?  Liberation from the full consequences of sin is found IN the resurrected Christ Jesus: For Faith IN the Covenant Word of the Son of God, is the Only WAY that leads man to freely worship Yahweh Father God Almighty IN Christ's Spirit of TRUTH and GRACE.  "Drink all of you: For this is My Blood of the New Covenant that is shed for many for the remission of sin!" Why Call Me Lord, Lord and do not the things I say to do?

Holy, Holy, Holy Lord God Almighty is faithful and stead fast in His Love for His people, and is longsuffering to us-ward, not willing that any should perish, but that all should come to repentance. (See 2nd Peter 3 verse 9.) He that loves not, knows not God; for God is Love.  In this was manifested the Love of God toward us, because that God sent his Only Begotten Son into the world, that we might live through Him. (1st John 4 verse 8 thru 9.) God's unfailing TRUTH is Jesus/Yeshua the Person of the WORD of GOD: For Yahweh God Almighty sent His Very Word into this world to bear witness of The TRUTH of God, for the Man Jesus Christ gave His Life in His Blood, as a Perfect Sacrifice to pay for the sin of the world. The WORD of God can only speak TRUTH and prays to His Father: Sanctify them through the TRUTH, Thy WORD is TRUTH. (John 17 verse 17.) But the TRUTH of the WORD of God is distorted by sin carrying men that are influenced by the deceit of the prince of the air.  In the stupor of these  absentminded churches, they have forgotten that Father God Almighty gave as a Sacrifice, His Only Begotten Son, Jesus/Yeshua to reconcile sinful peoples back to the unchangeable Creator, Holy Yahweh God Almighty, and not to reconcile Holy Almighty God to sinful people. (See 2nd Corinthians 5 verse 17 thru 21.) 

God's Sanctifying TRUTH is Yeshua/Jesus, and the TRUTH of Christ continues His prayer to His Father Yahweh God: As Thou has sent Me (the TRUTH of Yahweh God) into the world, even so have I also sent them into the world. The disciples of Christ are of the Body of TRUTH, for they are not of the world even as Jesus the TRUTH is not of the world. (See John 17 verse 16 thru 18.) In God's Eternal new Covenant, God's people of living faith, are to continue in their sanctification of the flesh through the Life giving Blood of Christ Jesus.   To clarify the Word of TRUTH,  the people of God are set apart from their sin in the flesh through their sincere repentance, and then through God's unseen Holy Spirit of TRUTH, the unseen Life Giving Blood of Jesus Christ absolves them of the unseen sin's of death. In His oversight of His creation of time, even before the He created the world, the Almighty God would  know of those who would hear His Word and would respond to His Word.  Then in the flow of time, He would then call each one of them to receive the TRUTH of His Salvation, The TRUTH shall set you free.  The Will of  Father God, is for His chosen to live IN the TRUTH of the WORD of GOD Almighty.

But there are the humanistic churches that have stifled the Salvation and Sanctifying WORD of GOD, and have established a non offensive doctrine that follows after the vain desires of the dictating prince of the world.  However, if we are to be following IN the WAY of God's Living Word IN the Man Christ Jesus, then where is the denial of one's self will with the daily taking up of their cross, with the dying to the sin that so easily besets us? (See Hebrews 12 verse 1.) Where is the renewing of the self indulgent mind of flesh?  These churches', in the vanity of their self indulgent rhetoric, have made the Almighty's New Covenant Love IN Christ Jesus, an oxymoron. Wherefore, today's churches of Nicolaitan confusion, have taken the Word of God out of context, and manipulated Scripture to accommodate their own humanistic disposition that dismisses any accountability for their self satisfying sins committed for the enjoyment of its *double minded children.  Conditional contentment sits in the Sunday pews, so long as the lukewarm occupiers are told by the accommodating pulpit pastors only what they want to hear that satisfies their carnal desires. (*Consider both Romans 6 verse 1 thru 6 and Revelation 3 verse 15 thru 20.)  What spirit is our flesh listening to?

Can there be any wonder as to who this vile malevolent deceiver is, for he appeals to the vanity of of all of man kind?  (*See Romans 6 verse 16 thru 18.) Yes, it is Satan, the unseen wannabe god that inspires anarchy and rebellion against his Maker! (See Isaiah 14 verse 12 thru 15.) Be very careful of what you hear, read, and definitely check out the spirit of your dreams: For the Holy Spirit of the God of our Salvation will in no wise entice a person to return to their old ways of self destruction.  Know for a certainty that you remain free in your flesh to choose which spirit you will serve, whether it may be the Eternal God's Holy Spirit of LIFE IN Christ Jesus, or Satan's spirit of sin and death.

The Almighty God of creation is Faithful to all the heavy laden with sin, and in their repentance they will come to the TRUTH of God: For in their obedience to His Good Will for them, they will live IN the Almighty's Covenant of Love WithIN Christ Jesus. (See Matthew 11 verse 28 and 24 verse 26 thru 28.)

Therefore know that the Lord thy God, He is God, the Faithful God, Who keeps Covenant and Mercy with them that love Him and keep His Commandments to a thousand generations.

But be forewarned, the Eternal Judge of the universe is not mocked, for He will give a person over to their own illicit desires that they are accustomed to perform: For He repays them that hate Him to their face, and will destroy them.  He will not be slack to him that hates Him, for He will recompense him to his face. (See Deuteronomy 7 verse 9 thru 10.)

Know you not, that to whom you yield yourselves servants to obey, his servants you are to whom you obey; whether of sin unto death, or of obedience unto righteousness? But God be Thanked, that you were the servants of sin, but you have obeyed from the heart (the spirit of your mind) that form of doctrine which was delivered to you. [Communion IN the Grace of the Spirit of God] Being then made free from sin, you become the servants of righteousness. I speak after the manner of men because of the infirmity of your flesh: for as you have yielded your members servants to uncleanness and to iniquity unto iniquity; even so, now yield your members, servants to righteousness unto holiness; for when you were the servants of sin, you were free from righteousness. (See complete passage in Romans 6 verse 16 thru 23.)  Is the reader free from righteousness?

The Only, Holy, Holy, Holy Lord God Almighty, the Eternally Just Creator of the universe and all that exists within His creation of free flowing time, is not mocked with the slight of hand of a sinful church that is mired deeply into the cesspools of this degenerate world of violence. *(Don't miss Matthew 15 verse 7 thru 9 and 2nd Peter 2 verse 18 thru 22.)  If you have clicked on the previously linked Scriptures, then we see that Peter ends his sharp rebuke with these words: For it had been better for them not to have known the Way of Righteousness, then, after they have known it, to turn (away) from the Holy Commandment delivered unto them. But it is happened unto them according to the true proverb: The dog is turned to his own vomit again; and the sow that was washed, to her wallowing in the mire (*See The Words of the Sower.)

Sin's unabated contagion within the willful flesh of mankind, even those who say they are Christians, does not end with the one sinful act of a man or woman's wickedness, but sin's beckoning call, when acted upon, has repercussions that have rippling affects on already offended mankind.  With each shameless offense, the violence of sin breeds the escalation of more violence in this world of death.  Both the unrepented and repented acts of wickedness are continually spread throughout this world of darkness by the satanic prince of darkness. For from the beginning of sin's lustful existence in Satan, sin's corruption continually breeds violence in the flesh of man, and the contagion is spread exponentially among all people of the earth. The escalating dark acts of yesterday are evident in any time period.  The violence of yesterday and today's acts will relentlessly increase the flow of destruction into tomorrow's events. Consider the warnings in Hosea 4. So it will be: like people, like priest (of yesterday and today)

Consequently in the end, Holy, Holy, Holy Lord God Almighty, the Righteous Creator and Judge of all things of His creation, will extend His Hand and pour out from the cup of His indignation, the overflowing return of the just rewards accumulated by the self indulgent creatures of human flesh. Those overflowing rewards of sin, will be harvested by the people of the world, even according to their own chosen ways.  (See Psalm 11 Verse 5 thru 7, and Psalm 75 verse 7 thru 9.) In the end, life and death shall hang in the balance of choice.  The cup of God's indignation is full to the brim and throughout God's creation of time, sin has been overflowing with its judgments: First against Israel, and also upon all of the gentile nations of the earth.  In this present time, are we now beginning to witness the Righteous Almighty God of His universe, beginning to turn His Hand of leveraged protection, and pour out of the cup of His indignation, the full force of the wicked violence of this world of darkness?   (See Revelation 14 verse 6 thru 7.)

Time is running out of time: For from the beginning of God's creation of Man/Adam, Satan, with his rebellion to his Creator, has enacted his horror of wickedness on the earth, and in the end of time, his violence will multiply exponentially, and wreak rebellion's total havoc upon this darkened world that follows Satan's path of iniquity.  Even as it shall be, the Only Holy, Holy, Holy Lord God of the Living, and the enemy of death, will continually give Witness to the sinner of His Infinite Righteous Power to Judge, and yet in His Mercy, He will show warning signs in the heavens and the earth of sin's own final judgment of death. The Almighty's patience, is revealed throughout time, beginning with God's chosen people in the genetic lineage of Adam.  Now the Almighty Yahweh God calls to all people to repent from the corruptive power of sin with it's death, and then to humbly turn toward the Almighty's mercy, by submitting to the Grace of His Holy Spirit of Life within Christ Jesus.

For there shall be signs in the sun, and in the moon, and in the stars, and upon the earth distress of nations, in bewilderment and perplexity: with the sea and the waves roaring: Men's hearts will be failing them for fear, looking after those things which are coming on the earth: For the powers of heaven shall be shaken. (See Luke 21:25-26.)

Why Call Me Lord, Lord and do not the things I say to do?

Holy God's people, predestinated to holiness, will not remain wallowing in the world's unbelief, for they were made to be IN Christ Jesus, more than conquers though the abiding Love of the Holy One of God Almighty.
For God commended His Love toward us, in that, while we were yet sinners, Christ died for us.  Much more then, being now justified by Christ's blood, we shall be saved from wrath through Jesus. (See Romans 5 verse 7 thru 9.)

And He (The Messiah) took the cup, and gave Thanks, then gave it to them, saying "All of you drink of it: For this is My Blood of the New Covenant, that is shed for many for the remission of sins. (Matthew 26 verse 27 thru 28.)
