8 But what saith it? The word is nigh thee, even in thy mouth, and in thy heart: that is, the word of faith, which we preach;
9 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.
10 For with the heart man believeth unto righteousness; and with the mouth confession is made unto salvation.
For ever, O Lord, thy word is settled in heaven.
Confession of faith is one of the laws of being or manifestation. Creation reveals that things were made, not from other things but from the spoken Word of God. God spoke and things were created; He spoke, and things came into being or manifestation. How? Hebrews 11:3 tells us that through faith, we understand that the worlds were framed by the Word of God, such that the things which were made did not come out of the things that are seen, but from the unseen. That was a demonstration of the possibility and reality of words sourcing things and not things coming out of other things. Words are creative; they possess creative ability. God’s Word is the source of creative ability. When we speak God’s Word, the creative power inherent in the Word finds expression through our faith in the Word we speak. The Lord Jesus teaches in Mark 11:22-23 that we will have what we say when we speak in faith and not doubt in our heart. That’s speaking in faith according to the Word. We were made in the image of God and so we speak the Word like God spoke it at creation and get the same results as God! Amazing, isn’t it?
Beloved, it is important that you understand that things come into manifestation, not just because we believe they are, but because we speak them forth by faith. As important as it is to believe that things are, it is more important to say that they are. That’s when manifestation leaps into being. God didn’t create the world just because He believed that He could create it. He did because He spoke the world into existence. Did God believe He could create the universe? Yes, He did; and more so, He knew He could. Understand that things don’t manifest in the realm of believing; they only have essence. Things manifest in the realm of speaking – the confession of faith. Hallelujah! Did you see that? Whatever you say according to what God says has already been settled in the realm of faith, where essence dwells. When you speak it forth, it leaps into being for you. We believe unto righteousness (rightness with God) but we make confession unto salvation, which is the manifestation of the righteousness of faith that we have received. Whatever God has told you that is in your heart, that you have meditated upon, that you have believed and have received into your heart, will leap into being for you when you begin saying it with your mouth.
MY SOLID FRONT (YOUR CONFESSION):
In the Name of the Lord Jesus Christ, I declare that my faith is operative and gets results. My faith is a speaking faith, and I speak forth the essence and substance of the will of God for me into being! Hallelujah!
Mark 11:22-23; 2 Corinthians 4:13.
