Thought For The Day (August 22, 2012): Developing Our Faith Confession

The fact that our words are a matter of life and death is clearly proclaimed by Deuteronomy 30:14-15 (NKJV), < But the word is very near you, in your mouth and in your heart, that you may do it. See, I have set before you today life and good, death and evil >.

The fact that our words define our spiritual state is proclaimed in James 3:2, < For we all stumble in many things. If anyone does not stumble in word, he is a perfect man, able also to bridle the whole body. >

Every time we speak our words carry a confession of ‘our faith’. There is a faith form that declares (usually by implication) that YESHUA is LORD and there is a faith form that denies (usually by implication) YESHUA as LORD.Everything we speak will either testify to YESHUA being LORD or, we deny that HE is LORD (by the implications of our wrong words).
We all understand that it is important that we speak right.If our words stand in obedience to JESUS CHRIST, declaring the fact that He is LORD, then our words have the potential to actualize the Righteousness of GOD and communicate the power of His salvation.
Romans 10:10 (NKJV) declares this reality in no uncertain terms: < For with the heart one believes unto righteousness, and with the mouth confession is made unto salvation. >

So we must fight to speak right.

It is a spiritual battle that we must continuously wage – by faith; repenting when we fail; always ensuring that we are under the atoning power of the Blood through His Shalom (Peace) in our inward parts (see John 14:27; Col 1:19-20).

YHWH has given us the HOLY SPIRIT. And, YHWH has given us the Witness of JESUS CHRIST in Spirit, Water and Blood (see 1 John 5:10a, 7-8, NKJV).

By the HOLY SPIRIT, in CHRIST JESUS, YHWH has also given us His Shabbat-Shalom so that our inward man can be in a (operational / functional) state of rest in Him (Ps 46:10-11; Heb 4:9-10) behind the veil (Heb 6:19).

YHWH has given us His Shabbat-Shalom (Heb 4:9-10) in CHRIST JESUS, which we access by the HOLY SPIRIT (Rom 8:2), through the Witness of JESUS CHRIST in Spirit, Water and Blood (1 John 5:10a, 8, NKJV).

And, this potential of operating in the Shabbat-Shalom of YHWH, in CHRIST JESUS, by the HOLY SPIRIT, is resident in every born-again Christian.

Everyday, before we start the day, we can position ourselves behind the veil (Heb 6:19-20), through prayer by the HOLY SPIRIT. The evidence of standing behind the veil is the Shabbat-Shalom Witness in our inward parts – vis a vis ‘our belly’.

[Tongues are a powerful tool to facilitate prayer by the HOLY SPIRIT to actualize YHWH’s Shabbat Shalom.]

Prayer by the HOLY SPIRIT energizes our inward parts in CHRIST JESUS, in Spirit, Water and Blood – to actualize this Shabbat Shalom.

Everything in Christian ministry should flow in a Shabbat Shalom.

The Shabbat Shalom expresses the spiritual medium through which the works of YHWH manifest – by the HOLY SPIRIT, in CHRIST JESUS.

Spirit, Water and Blood expresses the power that works within us – by the HOLY SPIRIT, in CHRIST JESUS (Rom 8:2, 1-4) – so that we can receive exceedingly abundantly beyond all that we ask or think (Eph 3:20); given the fact that YESHUA upholds all things (for fulfillment in the FATHER’s will) by the (Rhema) Word of His Power (Heb 1:3b).

His power works within us, according to our faith in ADONAI YESHUA.

In Luke 6:45 (NASB), the LORD JESUS instructs us as follows: < “The good man out of the good treasure of his heart brings forth what is good; and the evil man out of the evil treasure brings forth what is evil; for his mouth speaks from that which fills his heart.” >

The good treasure that every Christian carries by faith is described in 2 Cor 4:6-7 (NKJV), < For God, who said, “Light shall shine out of darkness,” is the One who has shone in our hearts to give the Light of the knowledge of the glory of God in the face of Christ. But we have this treasure in earthen vessels, so that the surpassing greatness of the power will be of God and not from ourselves >.

In and through the Witness of JESUS CHRIST alive in us; by the HOLY SPIRIT; we can ensure that our state of being lives in the treasure of the fullness of CHRIST JESUS (John 1:16-17, NKJV / NASB / KJV) within us.

In this reality is our destiny to be actual ministers of CHRIST, who are stewards of the Mysteries of GOD (1 Cor 4:1).

CHRIST in us is the hope of Glory – today (see Col 1:26-27; Heb 4:9-10; Mark 2:27-28; Heb 1:3b) and every day – forever.

This is functional reality that we must possess by our faith confession, in mouth and heart, through the Witness of the Cross (in Spirit, Water and Blood) that stands by the SPIRIT between our mouth and heart! Amen!

This is the Amen, the faithful and true Witness, the Beginning of the Creation of GOD alive in us by the HOLY SPIRIT, in CHRIST JESUS.

YESHUA stands as the Apostle and High Priest of our confession so that: (1) every high mountain of sin and death can be uprooted and destroyed; and, (2) every promise of YHWH given to us in CHRIST JESUS will be manifested through us to the FATHER’s glory.

As Colossians 3:17 declares: < Whatever you do in word or deed, do all in the name of the Lord Jesus, giving thanks through Him to God the Father. >

Be blessed to be a blessing! Brethren, develop your faith confession by the SPIRIT, in CHRIST JESUS, in the unleavened bread of sincerity and truth.

Your faith confession will ultimately become the conduit (the witness) of your ministry! Amen!
