“Lord, Lord” is such a woeful verse

By Elizabeth Prata

On that day many will say to me, ‘Lord, Lord, did we not prophesy in your name, and cast out demons in your name, and do many mighty works in your name?’ Mt 7:22.

How many is many? The word for ‘many’ is:

polýs – many (high in number); multitudinous, plenteous, “much”; “great” in amount (extent). (Strong’s).

This is terrible to think. It seems that the visible church is filled with believers, but the verse is saying that many aren’t believers after all. I worry for others, but also for myself. “Examine yourselves, whether you be in the faith“. 2 Corinthians 13:5.

Do business with Jesus today, this very day, while there is still time. Here are some resources
