KEY SCRIPTURE: John 8:17 KJV ” It is also written in your law, that the testimony of two men is true.“
In our key scripture the Lord Jesus said it is written in your law, that the testimony of two men is true. He was specifically referring to Deut 17:6, which says, by the testimony of two witnesses an account should be accepted as true and that the testimony of one man may not be established. The Lord was establishing that He does everything with the Father. It is what the Father says that He agrees to. It is actually to give His consent to the Father in agreement. This idea brings to bear a very important principle in our spiritual walk in the Spirit.
It is called confession.
This is not mainly talking about confessing our faults, although that is also agreeing with the convicting of the Holy Spirit. The Greek word for confessing is ‘Homologio’. It means to say or speak in consent to what has been said. It involves saying the same thing as has been said.
According to the scripture the declarations of scripture are true. When one speaks in agreement to what God has said that word must come to pass. The scriptures admonish us to hold fast our confession of our faith. Hebrews 10:23 KJV ” Let us hold fast the profession of our faith without wavering; (for he is faithful that promised;) ” The word ‘ profession’ in our above scripture is the same Greek word Homologio and is also translated confession.
Now there is another testimony, that is the testimony of our flesh or the senses. This kind of testimony is with great defect, because it is based on what is seen, heard, tasted, smelt or touched. It is called sense knowledge. It has no knowledge of the activities of the Spirit. This kind of testimony often contradicts the testimony of God or the word, yet that is the testimony that most men normally agree to. It has often led men into failure and defeat.
When one says, I have a bad temper, he would demonstrate a bad temper. This person who is born from above, has the recreated spirit of God, and so God ‘s word says he does not have a bad temper but has longsuffering. He must rather agree with God and say I have a good temper. This is what it means to confess our faith or the word of God.
The following scripture shows us how our heavenly father operates. Rom 4:17 KJV” ……. even God, who quickeneth the dead, and calleth those things which be not as though they were.” God our father calls those things that are not seen as though they are. We must do likewise. This is confessing in line with our faith, and we must keep at it. Our Lord Jesus is the High Priest over our confession Hebrews 3:1.Learn to say what God says in His word. If He says you are the righteousness of God ( 2 Corinth 5:21), do not say you are a sinner, say ‘ I am the righteousness of God.’ If the scripture says the nature of the Spirit in you is love (Gal 5:22), do not say you hate anybody, say, I love all men. Hold fast to what God says you are.
In Jesus name, I hold fast the confession of my faith. The Spirit of the Lord God dwells in me, and has given me the ability of God. I am filled with the wisdom of God; the power of God and the miracle power of God works through me. I represent my Lord Jesus, as I use His name to stop every work of Satan.
THOUGHT: SAYING WHAT THE WORD OF GOD SAYS, MAKES GOD WORK THROUGH YOU.
