“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;…” – 2 Corinthians 4:13
The Word of God tells us very clearly that God’s method is choosing to use things that are not manifest in our natural realm, things that we cannot see, hear, smell, taste, or feel, to bring things that are in the natural realm and make it manifest. (1 Corinthians 1:26-27)
Did you know that you can change your situation through Biblical confession? If we are experiencing problems, that’s what is in the natural realm, and as long as we can see it beyond the natural, we can take faith to the next level and use the Word of God to change it. This is what the Scriptures are teaching and revealing to us. Anything we can see in the natural realm, we can change it according to what God has promised us in the spiritual realm. This is why we need to understand the importance of knowing what true Biblical confession is and is not. We have to learn how to use this accordingly so that we can truly see its power in our situations as we apply it.
Biblical Confession is Calling Forth Things that are Not
God called the things that are not as if they were. God is calling things that don’t exist in the natural realm, and is calling them as though they were manifest. This is God’s method of doing things and making things come into existence.
For instance, if you have a sickness, and you don’t want it, make a confession that you are healed! (Isaiah 53:5) To make a confession is to call for things that don’t exist. This means you begin to call for healing and health, declare that you are healed. Confession is declaring and decreeing things that you don’t see in the natural yet. It is an act of faith. And when we confess and they manifest, that’s the time we see the things in the natural changing or disappearing because it’s replaced with things in the spirit, things that we called for in faith.
If we are believers and we are quoting the opposite of what God says in His Word, that is evil. We are calling God a liar and that is not true because God cannot lie. It is impossible for God to lie. If we only say and believe what is, then we are coming into agreement with evil. All sickness and evil comes from the devil. And if we’ll keep confessing that we are sick and only that, then that’s what will happen.
We must not be in alignment with evil. That’s not what God’s Word says. Confession is not praying to get something that’s not already been done. It’s a matter of appropriating what God has already said and done. Confession is calling forth things that God has already accomplished and it is aligning with what God says about us. It is calling what does not exist into manifestation.
Biblical Confession is Never Denying what Exists
It’s important that we know the TRUTH that when we start talking about calling things that are not, we do not ever deny something that exists. If you are sick, then you are sick.
Nowhere does God teach in the Bible that we deny what exists. Don’t make the major mistake of denying your situation and emotions. That is not Biblical confession. True confession is calling for things that are not, but it is never denying what exists in the natural realm. There is a big difference between calling for things that are not and calling for things as if they were not.
If we have problems or if we are sick, these problems exist. BUT…. We don’t go around confessing that we are sick or that we have problems. Why? Because that would cause us to have doubts in receiving the healing that Christ has provided for us on the cross. We must look to things that are spiritual and eternal and never fix our eyes on the light and momentary problems. (2 Corinthians 4:17-18)
We must never put our faith in the natural and on that which is temporary according to the Word. If it exists and it is temporary, that means it can be changed according to whatever God has promised us in His Word. And this is our confidence – that He who promised is faithful (Hebrews 10:23) . Confess and believe what God has already finished on the cross and see it manifest in your life.
