LORD, LORD: Who is Crying Lord, Lord?

LORD, LORD: Let us in
LORD, LORD: Let us in

“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.”
Matthew 7:21

Jesus is recorded using the phrase “Lord, Lord” several times when He was here on earth. All of those times He was referring to those who will attempt to gain entry into heaven.

But who won’t be able.

The unfortunate souls stand at heaven’s door crying “Lord, Lord!

But they cannot go in.

Who exactly are these people who are deluded into thinking they can get into heaven? From End Times Apostasy: Storm Warning for the Churches:

Jesus declared (Matthew 7:20-21) on the number of people trying to get into heaven who believe they are doing the will of God.  But unfortunately, these people are deceived and Jesus says “I do not know you.

From the activities the deceived people give Jesus as evidence of their sincere conversion, the deceived people are church-goers.

“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.”

What evidence do these lost give Jesus in a desperate attempt to gain entrance to 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?”


Who is prophesying in the name of Jesus?

The world or the deceived hanging out in the churches?

Who is casting out devils in the name of Jesus: the world or the church-goers?

Finally, who is claiming many wonderful works in the name of Jesus?

The world or the condemned denizens of the churches?

Those people crying “Lord, Lord” have been living lives which LOOKED good to the world, but whose hearts were not in the right place. And God knows the heart.

“Shall not God search this out? for he knoweth the secrets of the heart.”
Psalm 44:21

Oh, and if the church-goer believes that Jesus will “let him off the hook” because he was deceived by his pastor?  Jesus has already addressed that excuse.

“Let them alone: they be blind leaders of the blind. And if the blind lead the blind, both shall fall into the ditch.”
Matthew 15:14

The deceived and the deceivers BOTH end up in the same place.

Those who are outside yelling “Lord, Lord” are people who have spent time in one of the churches. Not THE Church, but one of the imitations which people identify with Christianity.

Satan Has Counterfeited the Christian Church


Jesus used the phrase “Lord, Lord” several other times as well.

“And why call ye me, Lord, Lord, and do not the things which I say?”
Luke 6:46

Jesus used the theme of a closing door and people trying to get in a few other times.  In both of the other instances, the people trying to get in are crying “Lord, Lord!”

“Then said one unto him, Lord, are there few that be saved? And he said unto them, Strive to enter in at the strait gate: for many, I say unto you, will seek to enter in, and shall not be able.

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: Then shall ye begin to say, We have eaten and drunk in thy presence, and thou hast taught in our streets.

But he shall say, I tell you, I know you not whence ye are; depart from me, all ye workers of iniquity. 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.”
Luke 13:23-28

Again, who will be saying “We have eaten and drunk in they presence” to Jesus: those in the world or those who are in the churches?

Who will be claiming that Jesus has “taught in our streets”: the world (which hates Jesus) or those in the churches (who do not know Him)?

Matthew 25:1-13 was the other time Jesus used the door shutting and those outside crying “Lord, Lord.”

“Then shall the kingdom of heaven be likened unto ten virgins, which took their lamps, and went forth to meet the bridegroom. And five of them were wise, and five were foolish. They that were foolish took their lamps, and took no oil with them: But the wise took oil in their vessels with their lamps.

While the bridegroom tarried, they all slumbered and slept. And at midnight there was a cry made, Behold, the bridegroom cometh; go ye out to meet him. Then all those virgins arose, and trimmed their lamps. And the foolish said unto the wise, Give us of your oil; for our lamps are gone out. But the wise answered, saying, Not so; lest there be not enough for us and you: but go ye rather to them that sell, and buy for yourselves.

And while they went to buy, the bridegroom came; and they that were ready went in with him to the marriage: and the door was shut. Afterward came also the other virgins, saying, Lord, Lord, open to us. But he answered and said, Verily I say unto you, I know you not. Watch therefore, for ye know neither the day nor the hour wherein the Son of man cometh.”

[NOTE: Some churches and false teachers have attempted to twist Matthew 25:1-13 into a “rapture parable.” They make the foolish into believers who do not “have enough of the Holy Spirit.”

This is totally unbiblical.

Take heed: Jesus tells the foolish virgins “I know you not.” IF Jesus does not know you, you are not one of His.

“I am the good shepherd, and know my sheep, and am known of mine.”
John 10:14

“My sheep hear my voice, and I know them, and they follow me: And I give unto them eternal life; and they shall never perish, neither shall any man pluck them out of my hand.”
John 10:27-28]

“Many,” says the Scripture, will be crying “Lord, Lord.

Do not be one of them. Do not be fooled or deceived.

Belonging to a church does not ensure anyone eternal salvation. Attending church regularly only assures the person will be known within the walls of that church, not heaven.

Make your calling and election sure.

Time is Running Out: Today is the Day of Salvation

“For I am not ashamed of the gospel of Christ: for it is the power of God unto salvation to every one that believeth; to the Jew first, and also to the Greek.”
-–Romans 1:16


“Moreover, brethren, I declare unto you the gospel which I preached unto you, which also ye have received, and wherein ye stand; By which also ye are saved, if ye keep in memory what I preached unto you, unless ye have believed in vain. For I delivered unto you first of all that which I also received, how that Christ died for our sins according to the scriptures; And that he was buried, and that he rose again the third day according to the scriptures:

And that he was seen of Cephas, then of the twelve: After that, he was seen of above five hundred brethren at once; of whom the greater part remain unto this present, but some are fallen asleep. After that, he was seen of James; then of all the apostles. And last of all he was seen of me also, as of one born out of due time. ”
1 Corinthians 15:1-8
