GOD'S PILLS 2015: CAPSULE 44

GOD HAS GIVEN ALL THAT YOU NEED FOR LIFE AND GODLINESS: SO WHY PRAY? PART 3

CONFESSION OF FAITH

“Let us therefore fear, lest, a promise being left us of entering into his rest, any of you should seem to come short of it. For unto us was the gospel preached, as well as unto them: but the word preached did not profit them, not being mixed with faith in them that heard it.”
‭‭Hebrews‬ ‭4:1-2‬ ‭KJV‬‬

In capsule 43 we started on the discussion 'Confession of faith' as part of your prayer life. In case this is your first capsule, we have looked at the primary purpose of prayer, then prayer to change things and now confession of faith or what some people call positive confession. I have sometimes been accused of being too technical in some of my explanation, I suppose there is some truth in that. My intention always is to get people to understand that things just don't happen randomly, as some try to portray. There is a reason some people get better results than others, passion must be based on knowledge. There is always spiritual order.

Confession of faith is only acknowledging what is already in the spiritual world and unless you know that, you are no better than people who practice eastern religion and go about chanting. It gives substance, depth and meaning to your confession when you know that what you are calling into being already exist in the spiritual world and all you are doing is creating a faith bridge into the physical world (Hebrews 11:3) and if you hold fast without wavering, that spiritual reality will impose itself and become a physical reality, confession of faith makes it so.

“This book of the law shall not depart out of thy mouth; but thou shalt meditate therein day and night, that thou mayest observe to do according to all that is written therein: for then thou shalt make thy way prosperous, and then thou shalt have good success.”
‭‭Joshua‬ ‭1:8‬ ‭KJV‬‬

The next point I would like to enunciate is seen in Hebrews 4:1-2, it paints the picture of two groups of people who where exposed to the same truths, one group benefited whilst the other didn't. The difference maker was that the group that benefited mixed the word they heard with faith. But how do you mix the word with faith so that you get a perfect blend that profits? The answer is your tongue, and the mixing bowl is your heart. When you are doing it correctly, that is what is called confession of faith. Look at Joshua 1:8. Can you see what I mean? The ingredient is the 'book of the law' or the word, which must be in your mouth and heart. When you do it day and night, that is what is called holding fast without wavering. I agree with people who say it is not essential to do it over and over, of course, you don't, if you can do it once and get results. But the truth is most of us are so far from that level of spiritual reality, hence you will need to stick with it until it becomes a habit.

“My heart is inditing a good matter: I speak of the things which I have made touching the king: my tongue is the pen of a ready writer.”
‭‭Psalms‬ ‭45:1‬ ‭KJV‬‬

When you know the efficacy of confession of faith, your tongue will become like the pen of a ready writer. The spiritual realities that has marinated in your heart will well out of your tongue accurately like the pen of a ready writer, your confession will lead to manifestation and possession. Most of Us are far from attaining this, but I know I am heading in the right direction. The picture of the spiritual that I see in the word of God which is a perfect reflection is what I confess with my mouth (Romans 10:9-10)

CONCLUSION
TAKE THE WORD, USE YOUR TONGUE AND MIX IT WITH FAITH
