It doesn't matter if you say "Lord Jesus" (1 Corinthians 12:3), "The Lord Jesus" (Acts 16:31), or "Our Lord Jesus" (2 Thessalonians 2:1).
The words don't matter. Anybody can say anything. We are even told that people will be calling Jesus "Lord, Lord" but he never knew them (Matthew
7:22-23). The Holy Spirit is what's most important because The Spirit is what saves you from living for The Flesh and your own selfish desires
(Galatians 5:16-18) because it is those type of people who are trapped in The Physical and do not inherit The Kingdom of God (Galatians 5:21).
Those who belong to Jesus Christ are those who crucified their bodies of their passions and desires to follow The Spirit (Galatians 5:24).
You either have The Holy Spirit or not, and you will know by the 7 Gifts that it brings: Love, Joy, Peace, Forbearance, Kindness, Goodness,
Faithfulness, Gentleness and Self-Control.(Galatians 5:22)
That's another thing that's important to point out. I heard people saying that they had The Holy Spirit and they felt something "possessing" them.
That is Not The Holy Spirit, it is clearly shown in this verse that The Holy Spirit brings Self-Control, Love, and Peace.
Have The Holy Spirit, THEN read The Bible.
Have The Holy Spirit, THEN use discernment to see if people are good or bad.
Holy Spirit comes first and everything else comes second.
That's my advice.
