Confession Ignites Manifestation Pt 3

“The Mouth of the righteous”

Amp Phil 2:12 Work out (cultivate, carry out to the goal, and fully complete) your own salvation with reverence and awe and trembling.

CHRIST COMES IN THROUGH SALVATION

CHRIST COMES ON THROUGH CONFESSION.

AMP Philem 1:6 That the participation in and sharing of your faith may produce and promote full recognition and appreciation and understanding and precise knowledge of every good thing that is ours in our identification with Christ Jesus and unto his glory

CONFESSION SPARKS THE MANIFESTATION OF THESE REALITIES INTO OUR LIVES.

IN THE OLD TESTAMENT MOSES GOT IN TROUBLE FOR STRIKING THE ROCK INSTEAD OF SPEAKING TO THE ROCK.

Mark 11:23 Truly I say to you, whoever says to this mountain, ‘Be taken up and cast into the sea,’ and does not doubt in his heart, but believes that what he says is going to happen, it will be granted him.

YOU CAN DEVELOP IN YOUR CONFESSION

FAITH IS RELEASED IN WORDS… THEY ARE CONTAINERS

Prov 6:2 you have been snared with the words of your mouth,

Have been caught with the words of your mouth,

BAS The sayings of your lips have overcome you

Prov 10:11 The mouth of the righteous is a fountain (well) of life,

But the mouth of the wicked conceals violence.

19 When there are many words, transgression is unavoidable,

But he who restrains his lips is wise.

Eccl 5:3 For the dream comes through much effort and the voice of a fool through many words.

THE 2 FAVORITE TOPICS OF THE UNRENEWED MIND ARE “MY PROBLEMS AND YOUR FAULTS”

Prov 12:6 The words of the wicked lie in wait for blood, But the mouth of the upright will deliver them.

14 A man will be satisfied with good by the fruit of his words,

MOFF – “A man reaps the result of all his words”

18 There is one who speaks rashly like the thrusts of a sword,

But the tongue of the wise brings healing. (NOT LIKE BUT – IS)

Ps 64:2 Hide me from the secret counsel of evildoers, From the tumult of those who do iniquity, Who have sharpened their tongue like a sword. They aimed bitter speech as their arrow,

THE MOST IMPORTANT TIMES TO TALK RIGHT IS WHEN YOU ARE STRETCHED

Prov 12:25 Anxiety in a man’s heart weighs it down, But a good word makes it glad.

Prov 13:2 From the fruit of a man’s mouth he enjoys good, But the desire of the treacherous is violence. 3 The one who guards his mouth preserves his life; The one who opens wide his lips comes to ruin.

Prov 15:4 A soothing tongue is a tree of life, But perversion in it crushes the spirit.

Prov 16:21 The wise in heart will be called understanding, And sweetness of (lips) speech increases persuasiveness.

24 Pleasant words are a honeycomb, Sweet to the soul and healing to the bones.

The Law of Freedom Pt 1

Law of Freedom

Gal 6:2 Bear one another’s burdens, and thereby fulfill the law of Christ.

Rom 8:3 For what the Law could not do, weak as it was through the flesh, God did: sending His own Son in the likeness of sinful flesh and as an offering for sin, He condemned sin in the flesh, 4 so that the (righteous) requirement of the Law might be fulfilled in us, who do not walk according to the flesh but according to the Spirit.

Rev 19:8 It was given to her to clothe herself in fine linen, bright and clean; for the fine linen is the righteous acts of the saints.

THE REQUIREMENT THAT IS TO BE FULFILLED IN US THAT PAUL IS TALKING ABOUT IS LOVE!

Matt 22:35 One of them, a lawyer, asked Him a question, testing Him, 36 “Teacher, which is the great commandment in the Law?” 37 And He said to him, “ ‘You shall love the Lord your God with all your heart, and with all your soul, and with all your mind.’ 38 This is the great and foremost commandment. 39 The second is like it, ‘You shall love your neighbor as yourself.’ 40 On these two commandments depend the whole Law and the Prophets.”

THE ONE THING THAT GOD HAS ALWAYS REQUIRED FIRST AND FOREMOST IS LOVE.

Gal 5:22,25 The fruit of the Spirit is love… living and walking by the Spirit

2 John 5 “Not writing a new commandment, but one from the beginning.

1 Tim 1:5 But the goal of our instruction is love from a pure heart and a good conscience and a sincere faith.

6 For some men, straying from these things, have turned aside to fruitless discussion (IDDLE TALK)

John 13:35 By this shall all men know that ye are my disciples, if ye have love one to another.

Rom 13:8 Owe nothing to anyone except to love one another; for he who loves his neighbor has fulfilled the law. 9 For this, “You shall not commit adultery, You shall not murder, You shall not steal, You shall not covet,” and if there is any other commandment, it is summed up in this saying, “You shall love your neighbor as yourself.”

10 Love does no wrong to a neighbor; therefore love is the fulfillment of the law.

Gal 5:13 For you were called to freedom, brethren; only do not turn your freedom into an opportunity for the flesh, but through love serve one another.

14 For the whole Law is fulfilled in one word, in the statement, “You shall love your neighbor as yourself.”

15 But if you bite and devour one another, take care that you are not consumed by one another.

Gal 5:6 For in Christ Jesus neither circumcision nor uncircumcision means anything, but faith working through love.

FAITH WITHOUT LOVE ACCOMPLISHES NOTHING

Rom 5:5 the love of God has been poured out within our hearts through the Holy Spirit who was given to us.

THE MOMENT WE GET INTO WORKS AND NOT FAITH THE FOUNTAIN IS SHUT OFF AND WE ARE LEFT TO THE CARNAL NATURE WHICH IS NEVER ENOUGH

LOVE IS THE PRIMARY EMPHASIS OF THE NEW TESTAMENT

IT IS THE CENTER OF TRUE CHRISTIANITY

IT IS THE KEY THAT CAUSES EVERY OTHER SPIRITUAL PRINCIPLE TO WORK IN OUR LIVES.

Col 3:14 Beyond all these things put on love, which is the perfect bond of unity.

Jude 20 But you, beloved, building yourselves up on your most holy faith, praying in the Holy Spirit, 21keep yourselves in the love of God

KJV Matt 11:12 And from the days of John the Baptist until now the kingdom of heaven suffereth violence, and the violent take it by force

*FAITH IS TO BE EXERCISED IN EVERY AREA OF LIFE

FAITH IS NOT JUST A DOCTRINE – IT IS A LIFESTYLE

NLT 2 Cor 5:7 That is why we live by believing and not by seeing.

*FAITH IS NOT JUST WHAT YOU DO – IT’S WHO YOU ARE

Mark 11:22 And Jesus answering saith unto them, have faith in God.

*FAITH IS RELEASED IN WORDS

Rom 10:6 But the righteousness based on faith speaks

8 But what does it say? “The word is near you, in your mouth and in your heart” — that is, the word of faith

*FAITH IS GOING TO AFFECT YOUR MOUTH BECAUSE IT FIRST DOES SOMETHING IN YOUR HEART.

Rom 10:9 That if you confess with your mouth Jesus as Lord, and believe in your heart that God raised him from the dead, you shall be saved; 10 For with the heart man believes, resulting in righteousness, and with the mouth he confesses, resulting in salvation.

*YOU DON’T GET RESULTS WITHOUT CONFESSION!

GOD GAVE YOU A WEAPON – “YOUR MOUTH” Eph 6 Sword

*YOUR TRUST IN GOD IS IMMEDIATELY REVEALED BY WHATS IN YOUR MOUTH

KJV Prov 22:17 Bow down thine ear, and hear the words of the wise, and apply thine heart unto my knowledge. 18 For it is a pleasant thing if thou keep them within thee; they shall withal be fitted in thy lips.

(NAS That they may be ready on your lips)

19 That thy trust may be in the lord

KJV Psa 116:9 I will walk before the Lord in the land of the living.

Psa 116:10 I believed, therefore have I spoken

2 cor 4:13 We having the same spirit of faith, according as it is written, I believed, and therefore have I spoken; We also believe, and therefore speak

Matt 12:34 O generation of vipers, how can ye, being evil, speak good things? For out of the abundance of the heart the mouth speaketh. 35 A good man out of the good treasure of the heart bringeth forth good things: and an evil man out of the evil treasure bringeth forth evil things. 36 But I say unto you, that every idle word that men shall speak, they shall give account thereof in the day of judgment. 37 For by thy words thou shalt be justified, and by thy words thou shalt be condemned.

Proverbs 4:20-23
OUT OF YOUR HEART FLOWS THE ISSUES OF LIFE (SALVATION)

Josh 1:8 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. 9 Have not I commanded thee? Be strong and of a good courage; Be not afraid, neither be thou dismayed: For the lord thy God is with thee whithersoever thou goest.

*THE WORD IN YOUR HEART ACTED ON CAUSES YOU TO BE BLESSED

Psa 1:2 But his delight is in the law of the lord; and in his law doth he meditate day and night. 3 And he shall be like a tree planted by the rivers of water, that bringeth forth his fruit in his season; His leaf also shall not wither; and whatsoever he doeth shall prosper.

James 1:22-25 YOU ARE BLESSED FOR DOING…

YOU DO SOMETHING BECAUSE YOU BELIEVE IT

NAS Mark 11:12 And on the next day, when they had departed from Bethany, he became hungry. 13 And seeing at a distance a fig tree in leaf, he went to see if perhaps he would find anything on it; and when he came to it, he found nothing but leaves, for it was not the season for figs. 14 And he answered and said to it, “may no one ever eat fruit from you again!” and his disciples were listening.

20 And as they were passing by in the morning, they saw the fig tree withered from the roots up. 21 And being reminded, Peter said to him, “Rabbi, behold, the fig tree which you cursed has withered.” 22 And Jesus answered saying to them, “have faith in God. 23 “Truly I say to you, whoever says to this mountain, ‘be taken up and cast into the sea,’ and does not doubt in his heart, but believes that what he says is going to happen, it shall be granted him.

24 “Therefore I say to you, all things for which you pray and ask, believe that you have received them, and they shall be granted you.

2 cor 4:13 But having the same spirit of faith, according to what is written, “I believed, therefore I spoke,” we also believe, therefore also we speak

“CONFESSION IGNITES MANIFESTATION”

Phil. 2:12 So then, my beloved, just as you have always obeyed, not as in my presence only, but now much more in my absence, work out your salvation (redemption) with fear and trembling;

nlt Phil. 2:12 Dearest friends, you were always so careful to follow my instructions when i was with you. and now that i am away you must be even more careful to put into action god’s saving work in your lives, obeying god with deep reverence and fear.

amp Phil. 2:12 work out (cultivate, carry out to the goal, and fully complete) your own salvation with reverence and awe and trembling.

you work it out (put it into action) by confession.

you whip the flesh with the confession of the spirit man.

your spirit man gains lordship over your soul and body through confession.

so christ comes in through salvation

christ comes on through confession.

amp Phil 2:13 (not in your own strength) for it is god who is all the while effectually at work in you (energizing and creating in you the power and desire), both to will and to work for his good pleasure and satisfaction and delight.

Philem 1:6 That the communication of thy faith may become effectual by the acknowledging of every good thing which is in you in christ jesus.

effectual; is the greek word energeo. (power released)

Philem 1:6 That the communication of thy faith may become effectual by the acknowledging of every good thing which is in you in christ jesus.

acknowledging – is the greek word epignosis which means; a well-instructed, intensive, deep knowledge of the facts.

the key is to know it before you confess it.

*a knowledge of who you are in christ

*a knowledge of what jesus has purchased in your redemption

*a knowledge of all the promises that are yours in christ

*a knowledge so concrete and unshakeable that you are immovable in what you think and believe.

confession sparks the manifestation of these realities into our lives.

Philem 1:6 That the communication of thy faith may become effectual by the acknowledging of every good thing which is in you in christ jesus.

Phil 2:10 so that at the name of jesus every knee will bow, in heaven and on earth and under the earth, 11 and every tongue will confess that jesus christ is lord, to the glory of god the father. 12 you must be even more careful to put into action god’s saving work in your lives, obeying god with deep reverence and fear.

JESUS REFERED TO SOMEONE AS THE HELPER – THE HOLY SPIRIT

John 14:16 I will ask the Father, and He will give you another Helper, (Comforter, Advocate, Intercessor—Counselor, Strengthener, Standby) that He may be with you forever; 17 that is the Spirit of truth, whom the world cannot receive, because it does not see Him or know Him, but you know Him because He abides with you and will be in you.

26 In the same way the Spirit also helps our weakness; for we do not know how to pray as we should, but the Spirit Himself intercedes for us with groanings too deep for words; 27 and He who searches the hearts knows what the mind of the Spirit is, because He intercedes for the saints according to the will of God.

“The Perfect Sacrifice”

Nkj Leviticus 1:1 Now the Lord called to Moses, and spoke to him from the tabernacle of meeting, saying, 2 “Speak to the children of Israel, and say to them: When any one of you brings an offering to the Lord, you shall bring your offering of the livestock—of the herd and of the flock. 3 ‘If his offering is a burnt sacrifice of the herd, let him offer a male without blemish; he shall offer it of his own free will at the door of the tabernacle of meeting before the Lord. 4 Then he shall put his hand on the head of the burnt offering, and it will be accepted on his behalf to make atonement for him. 5 He shall kill the bull before the Lord; and the priests, Aaron’s sons, shall bring the blood and sprinkle the blood all around on the altar that is by the door of the tabernacle of meeting. 6 And he shall skin the burnt offering and cut it into its pieces. 7 The sons of Aaron the priest shall put fire on the altar, and lay the wood in order on the fire. 8 Then the priests, Aaron’s sons, shall lay the parts, the head, and the fat in order on the wood that is on the fire upon the altar;

9 but he shall wash its entrails and its legs with water. And the priest shall burn all on the altar as a burnt sacrifice, an offering made by fire, a sweet aroma to the Lord.

Eph 5:1 Therefore be imitators of God as dear children. 2 And walk in love, as Christ also has loved us and given Himself for us, an offering and a sacrifice to God for a sweet-smelling aroma.

JESUS SACRIFICE GAVE GOD SO MUCH SATISFACTION HE RESTED…

Isaiah 53:10The Lord was pleased to crush Him, putting him to sicknes

Vs 11

1 John 2:1 My little children, I am writing these things to you so that you may not sin. And if anyone sins, we have an Advocate with the Father, Jesus Christ the righteous; 2 and He Himself is the propitiation for our sins; and not for ours only, but also for those of the whole world.

PROPITATION IS ALSO THE WORD RECONCILIATION

1 John 4:10 In this is love, not that we loved God, but that He loved us and sent His Son to be the propitiation for our sins.

Grk – Subsitute

EASTON’S BIBLE DIC – This Greek word (hilasterion) came to denote not only the mercy-seat or lid of the ark, but also propitation or reconciliation by blood.

Rom 3:23 for all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God,

24 being justified freely by His grace through the redemption that is in Christ Jesus, 25 whom God set forth as a propitiation by His blood, through faith, to demonstrate His righteousness, because in His forbearance God had passed over the sins that were previously committed, 26 to demonstrate at the present time His righteousness, that He might be just and the justifier of the one who has faith in Jesus.

Exodus 25 AND Leviticus 16 ARE WHERE YOU FIND THE MOST DESCRIPTIVE FEATURES AND PURPOSES OF THE MERCY SEAT

Exodus 25:22 There I will meet with you; and from above the mercy seat, from between the two cherubim which are upon the ark of the testimony, I will speak to you

Leviticus 16:14 Moreover, he shall take some of the blood of the bull and sprinkle it with his finger on the mercy seat on the east side; also in front of the mercy seat he shall sprinkle some of the blood with his finger seven times.15 “Then he shall slaughter the goat of the sin offering which is for the people, and bring its blood inside the veil and do with its blood as he did with the blood of the bull, and sprinkle it on the mercy seat and in front of the mercy seat.

Heb 9:11 But when Christ appeared as a high priest of the good things to come, He entered through the greater and more perfect tabernacle, not made with hands, that is to say, not of this creation; 12 and not through the blood of goats and calves, but through His own blood, He entered the holy place once for all, having obtained eternal redemption. 13 For if the blood of goats and bulls and the ashes of a heifer sprinkling those who have been defiled sanctify for the cleansing of the flesh, 14 how much more will the blood of Christ, who through the eternal Spirit offered Himself without blemish to God, cleanse your conscience from dead works to serve the living God?

Heb 10:14 For by one offering He has perfected for all time those who are sanctified.

Heb 8:12 For I will be merciful to their iniquities, And I will remember their sins no more.”

JESUS CRIED OUT IN John 19:30 “It is finished”

NOW IN HIM, WE HAVE NO BLEMISH BY THE BLOOD…

Exodus 12:3 Speak to all the congregation of Israel, saying, ‘On the tenth of this month they are each one to take a lamb for themselves, according to their fathers’ households, a lamb for each household.

PASSOVER COMMEMORATES THE DELIEVERANCE OF ISRAEL FROM EGYPTIAN BONDAGE…

NOTICE – “A LAMB FOR A HOUSEHOLD”

YOUR FAMILY IS MARKED FOR SALVATION BUT IT STILL HAS TO BE RECEIVED.

John 1:29 “The lamb who takes away the sin of the world”

AN INNOCENT LAMB FOR THE GUILT OF THE FAMILY…

1 Cor 5:7 Christ our Passover also has been sacrificed.

2 Cor 5:21 He made Him who knew no sin to be sin on our behalf, so that we might become the righteousness of God in Him.

The Reality of Favor Pt 3

“Doing what is right”

Luke 2:52 And Jesus increased in wisdom and stature, and in favor with God and man.

Heb 12:2 fixing our eyes on Jesus the author and perfecter of faith, who for the joy set before Him endured the cross, despising the shame, and has sat down at the right hand of the throne of God. 3 For consider Him who has endured such hostility by sinners against Himself, so that you will not grow weary and lose heart.

1 Pet 2:11 Beloved, I urge you as aliens and strangers to abstain from fleshly lusts which wage war against the soul. 12 Keep your behavior excellent among the Gentiles, so that in the thing in which they slander you as evildoers, they may because of your good deeds, as they observe them, glorify God in the day of visitation.

13 Submit yourselves for the Lord’s sake to every human institution, whether to a king as the one in authority, 14 or to governors as sent by him for the punishment of evildoers and the praise of those who do right. 15 For such is the will of God that by doing right you may silence the ignorance of foolish men.

Heb 5:8 Although He was a Son, He learned obedience from the things which He suffered.

18 Servants, be submissive to your masters with all respect, not only to those who are good and gentle, but also to those who are unreasonable. 19 For this finds favor, if for the sake of conscience toward God a person bears up under sorrows when suffering unjustly. 20 For what credit is there if, when you sin and are harshly treated, you endure it with patience? But if when you do what is right and suffer for it you patiently endure it, this finds favor with God.

21 For you have been called for this purpose, since Christ also suffered for you, leaving you an example for you to follow in His steps,

MESS This is the kind of life you’ve been invited into, the kind of life Christ lived. He suffered everything that came his way so you would know that it could be done, and also know how to do it, step-by-step.

22 who committed no sin, nor was any deceit found in His mouth; 23 and while being reviled, He did not revile in return; while suffering, He uttered no threats, but kept entrusting Himself to Him who judges righteously;

1 Pet 3:1 In the same way, you wives, be submissive to your own husbands so that even if any of them are disobedient to the word, they may be won without a word by the behavior of their wives, 2 as they observe your chaste and respectful behavior.

NLT your godly lives will speak to them without any words. They will be won over by observing your pure and reverent lives

4 but let it be the hidden person of the heart, with the imperishable quality of a gentle and quiet spirit, which is precious in the sight of God. 5 For in this way in former times the holy women also, who hoped in God, used to adorn themselves, being submissive to their own husbands; 6 just as Sarah obeyed Abraham, calling him lord, and you have become her children if you do what is right without being frightened by any fear.

7 You husbands in the same way, live with your wives in an understanding way, as with someone weaker, since she is a woman; and show her honor as a fellow heir of the grace of life, so that your prayers will not be hindered.

8 To sum up, all of you be harmonious, sympathetic, brotherly, kindhearted, and humble in spirit; 9 not returning evil for evil or insult for insult, but giving a blessing instead; for you were called for the very purpose that you might inherit a blessing.

10 For,“The one who desires life, to love and see good days, Must keep his tongue from evil and his lips from speaking deceit. 11“He must turn away from evil and do good; He must seek peace and pursue it. 12 “For the eyes of the Lord are toward the righteous, And His ears attend to their prayer, But the face of the Lord is against those who do evil.” 13 Who is there to harm you if you prove zealous for what is good? 14 But even if you should suffer for the sake of righteousness, you are blessed. And do not fear their intimidation, and do not be troubled, (Mess Don’t give the opposition a second thought)

16 and keep a good conscience so that in the thing in which you are slandered, those who revile your good behavior in Christ will be put to shame. 17 For it is better, if God should will it so, that you suffer for doing what is right rather than for doing what is wrong.

1 Pet 4:1 Therefore, since Christ has suffered in the flesh, arm yourselves also with the same purpose, because he who has suffered in the flesh has ceased from sin, 2 so as to live the rest of the time in the flesh no longer for the lusts of men, but for the will of God.

12 Beloved, do not be surprised at the fiery ordeal among you, which comes upon you for your testing, as though some strange thing were happening to you; 13 but to the degree that you share the sufferings of Christ, keep on rejoicing, so that also at the revelation of His glory you may rejoice with exultation. 14 If you are reviled for the name of Christ, you are blessed, because the Spirit of glory and of God rests on you. (Mess – A spiritual refining process)

15 Make sure that none of you suffers as a murderer, or thief, or evildoer, or a troublesome meddler; 16 but if anyone suffers as a Christian, he is not to be ashamed, but is to glorify God in this name. 17 For it is time for judgment to begin with the household of God; and if it begins with us first, what will be the outcome for those who do not obey the gospel of God? 18 And if it is with difficulty that the righteous is saved, what will become of the godless man and the sinner? 19 Therefore, those also who suffer according to the will of God shall entrust their souls to a faithful Creator in doing what is right.

1 Pet 5:5 You younger men, likewise, be subject to your elders; and all of you, clothe yourselves with humility toward one another, for God is opposed to the proud, but gives grace (FAVOR) to the humble.

6 Therefore humble yourselves under the mighty hand of God, that He may exalt you at the proper time, 7 casting all your anxiety on Him, because He cares for you. 8 Be of sober spirit, be on the alert. Your adversary, the devil, prowls around like a roaring lion, seeking someone to devour. 9 But resist him, firm in your faith, knowing that the same experiences of suffering are being accomplished by your brethren who are in the world. 10 After you have suffered for a little while, the God of all grace, who called you to His eternal glory in Christ, will Himself perfect, confirm, strengthen and establish you.
