Prayer: Confession

ConfessionWe’ve been duped! It IS true. Confession and repentance ARE required for eternal life. This is not popular opinion around the world and in segments of the Body. The Truth remains that no amount of Church attendance, Bible studies, or other Christian works can replace these tenants (confession, repentance) of the faith. Resistance to confession and repentance = rebellion = no answered prayers = no eternal life.

Abba is looking for the indwelling of the Holy Spirit and transformed or regenerated Believer in Christ Jesus. The love of God and the love of the flesh are mutually exclusive. The world says the Bible and God are too restrictive. Or segments of the Faith purposely omit God’s truths regarding the necessity to confess and repent. God’s made it very simple for us, we choose how we live on this side eternity and the next. And yes my non Roman Catholic friends confession is for you too.

Choosing God:
Therefore, confess your sins to one another, and pray for one another so that you may be healed. The effective prayer of a righteous man can accomplish much. James 5:16

Choosing Self:
“Don’t you realize that those who do wrong will not inherit the Kingdom of God? Don’t fool yourselves. Those who indulge in sexual sin (sorry friends I know the trends and modern world tells us premarriage, engaged, dating short or long term sexual relationships are okay but not so. Marriage is a covenant with God, any sexual relationships outside of it is outside of God’s will), or who worship idols (anything or anyone put before God), or commit adultery, or are male prostitutes, or practice homosexuality, or are thieves, or greedy people, or drunkards, or are abusive, or cheat people–none of these will inherit the Kingdom of God.” 1 Corinthians 6:9-10

Thank you Abba for revealing your Truths to us. Burn away all that is not you Lord and replace our old self with the new in Christ Jesus of Nazareth. Amen

  1. It is refreshing to Me,to read this blog.I too believe confession and repentance are necessary for eternal life.Sin has become so “in” this must sadden the Lord. If we confess our sins, he is faithful and just to forgive us our sins, and to cleanse us from all 1 John 1:9.
