Manifestation follows confession
“Seeing then that we have a great High Priest who has passed through the heavens, Jesus the Son of God, let us hold fast our confession.” Heb 4:14-15
Realisation can only follow confession. The word becomes real as we confess its reality. Whatever you confess with your mouth reacts upon your heart. As believers we walk in the light of our testimony. Satan terribly fears that, because that’s the way we overcame him. Thinking faith thoughts and speaking faith words, leads the heart out of defeat to victory. Darkness gives way to light, sorrow fizzles away for joy to come into the heart. Weakness turns to strength and lack gives way to divine supplies.
When we speak His Word, He watches over it to make it good, but there is no action on the part of God without our confession. Christianity is called the “Great Confession.” That’s how we became children of God. We believe with our heart and confess with our mouth that Jesus is our great substitute and that we confess His Lordship over our lives. We will never enjoy the riches of grace until we confess them!
What is the confession to which we are to hold fast?
That in Him we have a perfect redemption. Col 1:13-14
“He has delivered us from the power of darkness and conveyed us into the kingdom of the Son of His love, in whom we have redemption through His blood, the forgiveness of sins.”
That redemption never becomes a reality until we confess it; few seem to grasp this fact. In the face of apparent defeat, we confess our redemption and deliverance, and it becomes a reality. We do not pray for redemption; we thank Him for it. This redemption was wrought according to (1 Peter 1: 18-19)
“Knowing that you were not redeemed with corruptible things, like silver or gold, from your aimless conduct received by tradition from your fathers, but with the precious blood of Christ, as of a lamb without blemish and without spot.”
This is not a promise but a fact. So, we confess that we are New Creations created in Christ Jesus. Therefore, declare what Eph 2:10 says about you: “For we are His workmanship, created in Christ Jesus for good works, which God prepared beforehand that we should walk in them.”
We dare to say, “Old things are passed away: behold all things are become new, all these things are of God, who reconciled us to Himself through Christ.” 2 Cor 5:17)
Confess your righteousness before the world. We dare confess that God Himself has become our righteousness (Rom 3:26). You are not going to be righteous, you are the righteousness of God now as you read. We confess our redemption from the hand of Satan, that he is unable to put diseases and hold us in bondage. Faith declares what it believes. You bring the finished works of Christ into reality in your life by boldly declaring them.
Faith gives courage to confession and confession gives boldness to faith. You will never enjoy the riches of grace until you confess them. So, keep speaking… declare, “I’m blesVsed beyond the curse. No weapon fashioned against me shall prosper… I am the head and not the tail…” Glory to God!
