Watch Out For People Who Say “Jesus Is Lord”

1 Corinthians 12:3 Wherefore I give you to understand, that no man speaking by the Spirit of God calleth Jesus accursed: and that no man can say that Jesus is the Lord, but by the Holy Ghost.

Hrm, that does make a fair bit of sense. I can’t confirm the Common man’s reference Bible notes as I got rid of it along with all of my other nice bibles except for my LCBP notetakers (before the split) and gave them to a friend to give to those that have a need in Los Angeles. I can look up the other stuff with bible hub and sword searcher and I imagine most all perversions will have made that change. I would look it up in my individual perversions but I ended up burning them a month or so ago as well, lol. It does make a lot of sense though.

The verse (1 Corinthians 12:3) very clearly states that no man can say that Jesus is the Lord, but by the Holy Ghost. There is a massive difference between a lord and THE LORD. I agree that Philippians 2:10 does indeed say that Jesus Christ is Lord. That cannot be argued against, but I stick with my original explanation of it that the context of the verse is key. The only exalted one at the time the verse takes place is Jesus and He is the only Lord at that time because all human lords have been brought down and satan who will be lord to the lost masses at that time will be brought low as well. In my personal experience I have met quite a number of people that profess salvation and they were all just as lost as satan. Many of them had no problem saying “Jesus is Lord” but I never heard one of them say “Jesus is The Lord”, not once! I knew saying Jesus is Lord was not right even when I was a false convert and now as a saved man the Holy Spirit does not bear witness to it. Isn’t it interesting that the Bible very clearly says that a man cannot say Jesus is The Lord but by the Holy Spirit? That wording is very unique and what it says quite clearly is that people that won’t say it (or rather, fight against it) don’t have the Holy Spirit. What’s more interesting is that the majority of the comments on this video on YouTube are all of people fighting against it…….

David Hoffman (who compiled the Common Man’s Reference Bible) has an interesting viewpoint on the passage in Philippians 2. He believes that the phrase “Jesus is Lord” is a “satanic confession,” because Satan literally confesses (“And that every tongue should confess…”) that “Jesus is Lord” before he is damned in the lake of fire for ever.  This idea particularly comes from the fact that many modern per-version “bibles” change Romans 10:9, “That if thou shalt confess with thy mouth the Lord Jesus, and shalt believe in thine heart that God hath raised him from the dead, thou shalt be saved.” The change says “if you confess that Jesus is Lord…” and is found in the corrupt NLT, NIV, ESV, CSB, NASB, NET, RSV, ASV, etc., etc. The same exact change is found in 1st Corinthians 12:3 (including the NKJV for this verse). The Holy Spirit leads a man to say that Jesus Christ is the Lord, so perhaps unclean spirits lead a man to confess what Satan will confess…
