The POWER of RIGHT Confessions


A few weeks ago during my personal bible study,i discovered something fascinating in the scriptures that i want to share today.

A little background story: Moses had just died & The children of Israel,under the leadership of Joshua were getting ready take over the city of Jericho
While Joshua was meditating on how to go about this herculean task,The angel of the lord appeared to him and delivered the strategy to use in bringing down the walls of Jericho and defeating its inhabitants. Fantastic
Now it was time for Joshua to relay the same message and strategy to the children of Israel and that is when I discovered something so subtle ,yet powerful!
Joshua said to them "you are to go round this wall of Jericho once for six days and on the 7th day,you will go around it 7 times, and then you you will shout. BUT FOR THOSE SIX DAYS, I DON'T WANT YOU TO MAKE ANY SOUND. DON'T EVEN SAY A WORD"
This is the weird thing... The angel of God never said , "Tell them not to make any sound".

He didn't. Joshua added that part.

Read what God said:
So why will Joshua include an instruction to the children of Israel that God never gave him?.

I am not totally certain, but I have an idea.
You see, Joshua served Moses for years. The Bible tells us that when moses would go to the tent to pray for hours and sometimes days , Joshua was always with him
So Joshua knew the children of Israel. He knew they were stubborn.

He was there when they disobeyed Moses. And spoke vile words each time they were sad or given an instruction.
He was there when God said "tell the children of Israel it Is what I hear you say I will do".

In other words,If God wanted them to experience A and they kept declaring B, B will be their experience on earth because God doesn't force his will on man

Joshua was there.
God performed many miracles before their eyes but rather than believe he could take them to the promise land, they murmured endlessly.

They were stiff necked, as a result, they died in the wilderness.
Now,here is Joshua leading a younger generation to take over Jericho and possess every land God had promised their father's, but he didn't want them to make the same mistake (of murmuring) their father did, so he said "when we go round this wall,I don't want you to say a word"
In a moment of crises and trials, it is better not to say anything than say something negative.

The Bible says he that keepeth his mouth, keepeth his life.
Solomon also said, "Even a fool is counted wise he shuts his lips"
As a believer, you can't say anything you like and refute it with "I was only joking".

There are no jokes in the realm of the spirit.

Words builds, words destroys.

What you say is what you become.
The Bible says "the righteousness which is of faith SPEAKS on this wise"

The righteousness that you have received by faith is a righteousness that talks!
Any faith that doesn't speak is dead.
The Bible says "faith without works is dead."
That is, Faith without corresponding action is dead.

The first action there is in what you say.

You dont really believe until your confessions indicates so.
Even in receiving salvation, the Bible says "with the heart man believes unto righteousness and with the mouth confession is made unto salvation".

Even though, you believe you are saved,it is not credited to your account, till you confess it.
Paul said " we also believe and therefore speak ".

What do you believe that God's word says about you? Start speaking it. Start declaring it. Even when it looks like it is falling apart : hold fast your confessions
Your confessions stamps your believing.
I said to members of my Bible study group some weeks ago "Faith DOESN'T move mountain".

The Bible never said " if you have faith the mountain will love".

What Jesus said was "If you have faith, YOU SHALL SAY UNTO this mountain...then the mountain will move"
The question here is not if you believe God can do it, but if you are declaring he has done it!.

Words carry life. Words carry energy.

Faith doesn't move mountain, spoken faith does.
Jesus said "with THY mouth thou shall be Justified and with THY mouth thou shall be condemned".

THY mouth... Not with THY neighbour's mouth. Or with THY enemies mouth. But with THY mouth.

Justification or condemnation comes from what you say!.
Curses will only work in the life of a believer if:

(1)He/she is ignorant of who they are in Christ.

(2)If their environment is starved of words of blessings.
Do you think you will pour out words of blessings from your lips for 355 days in a year and someone will say something on the 366th day and it will override everything?

It means God's word isn't as powerful as we think it is.
But the Bible says "No word of God is void of power "
What are you doing with that power? Keeping it (by just believing ) or releasing the power(by confessing it)?.

The choice is yours.

Your words controls Your world
