Confession Ignites Manifestation Pt 6

“The good fight of faith 2”

 

1 Tim 6:12 Fight the good fight of faith; take hold of the eternal life to which you were called, and you made the good confession in the presence of many witnesses.

 

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 we also speak,

 

Ps 116:10 I believed, therefore have I spoken: I was greatly afflicted: 11 I said in my haste, All men are liars. 12 What shall I render unto the Lord for all his benefits toward me? 13 I will take the cup of salvation, and call upon the name of the Lord.

 

8 For You have rescued my soul from death, My eyes from tears, My feet from stumbling. 9 I shall walk before the Lord In the land of the living.

 

THE SPIRIT OF FAITH ENABLES YOU TO OVERCOME ANY SITUATION OF LIFE.

 

THE SPIRIT OF FAITH CAN’T TELL HOW OLD YOU ARE…

THERE’S TWO INGREDIENTS INVOLVED IN THE SPIRIT OF FAITH.

  1. BELIEVE – THE ATTITUDE OF FAITH – YOU FACE LIFE WITH AN ATTITUDE!
  1. SPEAK – PAUL TALKING ABOUT DAVID… I BELIEVE AND SPEAK

Ex. LIFE OF DAVID… HE SAID, I KILLED A LION AND BEAR 

DAVID STARTS TALKING BACK TO THAT GIANT.  

 

WHEN YOU’RE FACING A DIFFICULTY IN LIFE YOU HAVE TO SAY WHAT YOU BELIEVE. 

 

Rom 8:31 “WHAT SHALL WE SAY TO THESE…”

 

THE WORD SPOKEN TO YOU MUST BE SPOKEN THROUGH YOU!

 

Acts 27 PAUL IS IN THE 3RD DAY OF A14 DAY STORM – 11 DAYS TO GO!

Vs 21-26 Paul say’s, cheer up everybody for I believe God that it will turn out exactly as I’ve been told.

 

FAITH WAS NEVER MEANT TO BE SILENT.

“The Good Fight of Faith”

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

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

FAITH IS ALWAYS THE IGNITER

1 Tim 6:12 Fight the good fight of faith; take hold of the eternal life to which you were called, and you made the good confession in the presence of many witnesses.

THE GOOD FIGHT OF FAITH HAS A CONFESSION THAT GOES WITH IT

13 I charge you in the presence of God, who gives life to all things, and of Christ Jesus, who testified the good confession before Pontius Pilate, 14 that you keep the commandment without stain or reproach until the appearing of our Lord Jesus Christ, 15 which He will bring about at the proper time—He who is the blessed and only Sovereign, the King of kings and Lord of lords,

JESUS BEFORE PILOT

John 18:36 Jesus answered, “My kingdom is not of this world. If My kingdom were of this world, then My servants would be fighting so that I would not be handed over to the Jews; but as it is, My kingdom is not of this realm.” 37 Therefore Pilate said to Him, “So You are a king?” Jesus answered, “You say correctly that I am a king. For this I have been born, and for this I have come into the world, to testify to the truth. Everyone who is of the truth hears My voice.”

Heb 11:13 All these died in faith, without receiving the promises, but having seen them and having welcomed them from a distance, and having confessed that they were strangers and exiles on the earth. 14 For those who say such things make it clear that they are seeking a country of their own. 15 And indeed if they had been thinking of that country from which they went out, they would have had opportunity to return. 16 But as it is, they desire a better country, that is, a heavenly one. Therefore God is not ashamed to be called their God; for He has prepared a city for them.

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 we also speak,

Ps 116:10 I believed, therefore have I spoken: I was greatly afflicted: 11 I said in my haste, All men are liars. 12 What shall I render unto the Lord for all his benefits toward me? 13 I will take the cup of salvation, and call upon the name of the Lord.

8 For You have rescued my soul from death, My eyes from tears, My feet from stumbling. 9 I shall walk before the Lord In the land of the living.

The spirit of faith enables you to overcome any situation of life.

THERE ARE TWO INGREDIENTS INVOLVED IN THE SPIRIT OF FAITH.

1. BELIEVE – FACE LIFE WITH AN ATTITUDE!

YOU WALK AND TALK DIFFERENT

THE SPIRIT OF FAITH WILL TAKE THE WHINNING OUT OF YOUR VOICE

2. SPEAK – I BELIEVE AND SPEAK

THE LIFE OF DAVID AND PAUL

DAVID HEARS THE GIANT HOLLERING AT GOD’S COVENANT PEOPLE… DAVID STARTS TALKING BACK TO THE GIANT.

WHEN YOU’RE FACING A DIFFICULTY IN LIFE YOU HAVE TO SAY WHAT YOU BELIEVE.

THE ATTITUDE OF FAITH; IS BELIEVING THAT IF GOD IS FOR YOU WHO CAN BE AGAINST YOU…

Rom 8:31 “WHAT SHALL WE SAY TO THESE…”

THE WORD SPOKEN TO YOU MUST BE SPOKEN THROUGH YOU!

Acts 27 Paul is in the 3rd day of a14 day storm – God gives him a word…

He gives a word in storm to use against enemy or your circumstance

Vs 21-26

Confession ignites manifestation Pt 4

“You shall decree a thing”

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

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

Job 22:28 You will also decree a thing, and it will be established for you; And light will shine on your ways.

29 “When you are cast down, you will speak with confidence,

And the humble person He will save.

A CHARACTERISTIC OF FAITH IS THAT IT IS BUILT UPON OR… IT IS THE RESULT OF A FULL PERSUASION OF THE REVEALED WILL OF GOD.

FF BOSWORTH – “CHRIST THE HEALER”… “FAITH BEGINS WHERE THE WILL OF GOD IS KNOWN”

IN ORDER TO MAKE A TRUE FAITH CONFESSION IT MUST BE FROM A PERSUADED HEART

Eph 5:17 So then do not be foolish, but understand what the will of the Lord is.

Hebrews Ch 11 THE HEROS OF FAITH, TIME AFTER TIME THEY HAD THE OPPORTUNITY AND SAID SOMETHING BOLDLY.

Ex. ABRAHAM Gen 22:5 – OFFERING ISAAC AS AN OFFERING

“The Lord will provide”

“I and the boy will go up and we will come back”

FAITH IS BOLD… BOLD TO DECLARE AND DECREE WHAT’S GOING TO HAPPEN… NOT JUST WHAT I THINK BUT WHAT GOD’S WORD SAY’S.

“I will live and not die, and declare the works of the Lord” 118:17

Ex. JACOB AND ISRAEL Heb 11:20-21 – “By faith Isaac blessed Jacob and Esau concerning things to come”

“By faith Jacob when he was dying blessed the sons of Joseph”

Vs 22 “By faith Joseph, when he died, made mention of the departing of the children of Israel; and gave commandments concerning his bones”

DAVID AND GOLIATH… 1 Sam 17

David said to Saul, “Your servant killed both the lion and the bear this uncircumcised Philistine will be like one of them”…

Ex. 3 HEBREW CHILDREN WHO SAID, WE ARE NOT BOWING DOWN… OUR GOD WILL DELIVER US!

EX. JOSHUA AND CALEB! Numb 13 & 14

12 spies went out and spy’ed out the land…

Vs 30 “Let’s go up and possess…we are well able to possess it”

FAITH IS PERSUADED… IT’S CONFIDENT CONCERNING THE OUTCOME

Psa 91 “No plague shall come near me”…

Joshua 10 – JOSHUA COMMANDS THE SUN TO BE STILL Vs 12

14 “The Lord listened to the voice of a man; for the Lord fought for Israel”

Josh 14:6-7 Then the sons of Judah drew near to Joshua in Gilgal, and Caleb the son of Jephunneh the Kenizzite said to him, “You know the word which the Lord spoke to Moses the man of God concerning you and me in Kadesh-barnea. I was forty years old when Moses the servant of the Lord sent me from Kadesh-barnea to spy out the land, and I brought word back to him as it was in my heart.

Vs 8 “I followed the Lord my God fully” Vs 12 (Give me my mountain)

2 Cor 4:13 “I believe therefor I spoke, we believe and we speak”

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.

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

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.

Igniting who you are and activating what’s yours in christ.

kjv 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.

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

faith is always the igniter.

kjv 1Th 2:13 For this cause also thank we god without ceasing, because, when ye received the word of god which ye heard of us, ye received it not as the word of men, but as it is in truth, the word of god, which effectually worketh (energio) also in you that believe.

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.
