In 1Cor 12:3 Paul states that no man call Yahshua ‘lord’ except by the Holy Spirit.
But is this true?
3 Therefore I make known to you that no one speaking by the Spirit of God says, “Jesus is accursed”; and no one can say, “Jesus is Lord,” except by the Holy Spirit.
So what does Paul with Luke 6:46?
46 “Why do you call Me, ‘Lord, Lord,’ and do not do what I say?
So what are supposed to believe? That the Holy Spirit inspires the rebellious in their hypocrisy? Because that’s just what this is. They call Him lord but reject His words.
Similarly we have Mat 7:22,23 22 Many will say to Me on that day, ‘Lord, Lord, did we not prophesy in Your name, and in Your name cast out demons, and in Your name perform many]miracles?’ 23 And then I will declare to them, ‘I never knew you; depart from Me, you who practice lawlessness.’
So here we have again, a people that call him ‘lord’ and yet these people are assigned their place with the hypocrites. And Yahshua call them ‘FOOLS’ Mat 7:26
So again we have Paul saying that these rebellious ones are speaking by the Holy Spirit. Now how is it possible that liars and hypocrites speak by the Spirit of Truth? It is not possible! Therefore it’s pretty easy to understand that Paul was utterly clueless about the Holy Spirit. Paul was not in-dwelt by the Holy Spirit, nor did know the Spirit of Truth. For all these that Yahshua says to ‘Depart from Me, you lawless ones, I never knew you.’ All of these were utterly deceived by Paul. The Holy Spirit by the way deceives no man,
So in effect Yahshua is saying all the followers of Paul are liars, hypocrites and fools.
Here is tragedy, it is infinitely easier to do the Torah/Law than it is Paul. How many have wasted precious years of their lives trying figure out or reconcile Paul with Prophets. It simply can not be done. Paul is rebellion personified even as Yahshua is obedience personified.
Salvation according to Paul is nothing more than ‘calling Yahshua lord’ and saying he rose from the dead. And yet you can see clearly from the Words of Yahshua that this is a false salvation generated by a false prophet.
