“That if thou shalt confess with thy mouth the Lord Jesus, and shalt believe in thine heart that God hath raised him from the dead, thou shalt be saved. For with the heart man believeth unto righteousness; and with the mouth confession is made unto salvation.”
A Simple Truth:
Believe and Confess/Confess and Believe. They go together like a horse and carriage, or love and marriage.
Which comes first?
Today it is anyones guess,… but historically; The horse pulled the carriage, Love led to marriage and believing leads to confession.
As Christians, belief and confession is the only, acceptable road to Salvation. I know of no other path to the Father except through the Son.
Taking this as truth, we should live this:
“these signs shall follow them that believe; In my name shall they cast out devils; they shall speak with new tongues; They shall take up serpents; and if they drink any deadly thing, it shall not hurt them; they shall lay hands on the sick, and they shall recover.” Jesus to believers.
Why do we see so few signs:
(: something (such as an action or event) which shows that something else exists, is true, or will happen). Websters definition.
We see very few wonders:
(: a feeling caused by seeing something that is very surprising, beautiful, amazing, etc.
: something that is surprising or hard to believe). Webster again.
“SHALL FOLLOW” Do they? IF SO; THEY ARE FEW AND FAR BETWEEN.
For well over 35 years, I have been telling myself, these things are not happening because:
➤ “I cannot be trusted”:
1. To give Him the Glory.
2. To remain faithful and true.
3. To humble myself to His will.
➤ “I am not Spititual enough to be used”:
I am not walking in the light, life and in the power of His Yoke. I am not at rest in Him. I am not in tune with His will.
This all may be true, for me, but, what is your excuse?
IT IS ALL NONSENCE:
Jesus, did not give any conditions, or experation dates… THE ONLY CONDITION… IS BELIEVE.
As we must confess Jesus as Lord and Savior, to be Saved, we must confess His will and Word to see results.
Signs and Wonders, should be and must be the natural result of our belief. If we do not see them we have a problem with our belief.
The problem is if? If it is Your will? Really, did you not understant what He said?
“THESE SIGNS SHALL FOLLOW”.
“THOSE THAT BELIEVE”.
That should be you and me.
We will see signs and wonders following, when we learn the simple truth. Believe and Confess.
Yes, that simple.. “Be healed in the Name of Jesus.” Be thou removed in the Name of Jesus.”
It is the Name of Jesus, that holds the power of resurection, healing, deliverance, recovery of sight, hearing, a sound mind.
We confess Salvation, because we believe.
We need to confess and believe to see…
Does it make sense? Not really, then again Salvation is a fact, and, still a mystery.
Start to stand on Gods Word, Believe Gods Word, ACT ON GODS WORD.
Saints, the Devil is in our (unspoken), Doctrine. Speak, Believe and See the Salvation of God.
