KEY SCRIPTURE: Hebrews 10:23 KJV” Let us hold fast the profession of our faith without wavering; (for he is faithful that promised;)”
The above key scripture is a direct instruction telling us to hold fast our confession of our faith. We should never be discouraged or give up on declaring what we believe. Please note that the word profess is the same as to confess.
It means to speak in consent or to say the same thing. It is a translation of the Greek word ‘homologia’, which comes from two Greek words, ‘homo’, which means ‘same’ and ‘logos’, which also means ‘word’ Homologia, means ‘same words. To confess means to speak in line with the word of God.
Confession is a seal on our faith. Rom 10:10 KJV” For with the heart man believeth unto righteousness; and with the mouth confession is made unto salvation”. Our hearts believe the word, and that makes us justified or righteous before the father. When we confess what we have believed, it is like appending your signature to an agreement. Without the signature the agreement is not executed. This is the reason the Bible says when we make our confession to that which we have already believed, we are saved. Whenever we make a confession in line with the word of God, we fully establish whatever the word has said in that light.
Our key scripture says we must hold fast our confession, that is, we must never stop saying the things the word has said in relation to our faith. He added that God is faithful who promised. God cannot deny himself. Hebrews 6:18, put it this way: it is impossible for God to lie. This implies whatever God has promised is certain to come to pass, if we do not get discouraged in signing forth what we have believed in our heart. To sign what we have believed is to confess or speak out what we have believed, and we cannot be denied our answer.
I continually hold fast my confession without wavering. My confession completes my faith and delivers into my hands what God has said.
Heb 4:14 KJV “Seeing then that we have a great high priest, that is passed into the heavens, Jesus the Son of God, let us hold fast our profession”.
Hebrews 3:1 KJV ” Wherefore, holy brethren, partakers of the heavenly calling, consider the Apostle and High Priest of our profession, Christ Jesus;”
