Confessions are an admittance and public acknowledgement of a certain series of facts that the maker believes to be true. When an accused is put in the dock (accused box), the moment he confesses to a certain series of facts or evidences, it becomes reality for him with the consequences thereof. Just take a look at that, isn’t that really the case of Mankind today?
God is the Judge, Jesus being the Defence advocate, Satan being the accuser, both presenting their evidences before the court, and Man being the accused. Whatever evidence he (man) confesses to becomes his reality.
This foundational truth is seen in Romans 10:10 AMP “for with the heart A PERSON BELIEVES [in Christ as Saviour] RESULTING IN HIS JUSTIFICATION [that is, being made righteous—being freed of the guilt of sin and made acceptable to God (the judge)]; and WITH THE MOUTH HE ACKNOWLEDGES AND CONFESSES [his faith openly], RESULTING IN AND CONFIRMING [HIS] SALVATION.” So the salvation (deliverance from condemnation, poverty, sickness and Demonic oppression) of a man cannot come about except by CONFESSING his belief in the evidence of His advocate (Jesus).
The truth is that probably every Christian agrees on the abovementioned. However, just as this truth applies to eternal salvation (the indwelling of the Holy Spirit in man), it also applies to the daily salvation of the mind of the man, which creates his reality. For effective functioning on earth, the mind needs to be renewed even after the soul is saved by the Holy Spirit. This was what Apostle Paul was speaking of in Romans 12:2 AMP “do not be conformed to this world [any longer with its superficial values and customs], but be transformed and progressively changed [as you mature spiritually] by the renewing of your mind [focusing on godly values and ethical attitudes], so that you may prove [for yourselves] what the will of God is, that which is good and acceptable and perfect [in His plan and purpose for you]. He was telling the Christian folk in Rome here that having been saved, you’ve got to keep your mind on Christ’s evidence in your daily life, not staggering through unbelief, so that it would manifest God’s will for your life while on earth, because it is possible to be eternally saved but naturally conformable to the standard of the world.
God speaking to Joshua (Joshua 1:8 MSG) said “and don’t for a minute let this Book of Revelation be out of mind. Ponder and meditate (mutter, speak, confess) on it day and night, making sure you practice everything written in it. Then you’ll get to where you are going; then you’ll succeed”. This means that in the success process, there is the believing, the SPEAKING, and then the acting upon.
Your confessions will feed you as they create your realities (Proverbs 18:20-21). Jesus attests you this kingdom truth in Matthew 21:21 “… if you have faith, … and do not doubt… if you SAY unto this mountain be thou cast into the sea, it will happen, if God wills it (that is as long as it is consistent with God’s word)”.
Your life is the character of your words in line with God’s word. No man is ever different from his confessions. It is important therefore, that as a child of God, you talk right. Put God’s word on your lips and keep yourself in health, safety, prosperity and victory. God bless you
