Most people think they are so near to God, yet they are so far away; while others think that they are so good, that their place in Heaven is secured. Did you know that confession is really good for the soul? Let me remind you of what God says in the Bible, “Wherefore, let him that thinketh he standeth take heed lest he fall.” – 1 Corinthians 10:12 Not everyone who claims to be religious is going to heaven because they are not living right, so God’s message is, “I know thy works, that thou art neither cold nor hot; I would thou wert cold or hot. So then, because thou art lukewarm, and neither cold nor hot, I will spew thee out of my mouth. Because thou sayest, I am rich, and increased with goods, and have need of nothing, and knowest not that thou art wretched, and miserable, and poor, and blind and naked,” – Revelation 3:15-17 Is this you? So near, yet so far away.
One thing you must realize is that when we don’t confess our sins and turn from our wicked and evil ways, you especially Christians you become weak and miserable, then your bones grow old through groaning all day long, and the longer you wait to confess, your burdens and stress of unconfessed sins will get heavier, because you keep on adding to it, and your strength evaporates like water, instead of just confessing and erasing it all. God says, in 1 John 1:9, “If we confess our sins, He is faithful, and just to forgive us and cleanse us from all unrighteousness.” Why should you confess and change? God does not work with filthy and unclean people, because He is Holy.
Listen to what He says in Isaiah 64:6-7, “But we are all as an unclean thing, and all our righteousness are as filthy rags; and we all do fade as a leaf, and our iniquities, like the wind, have taken us away, and there is none that calleth upon thy name, that stirreth up himself to take hold of thee; for thou hast hidden thy face from us, and hath consumed us, because of our iniquities. But now, O Lord, thou art our Father; we are the clay, and thou our potter, and we all are the work of thy hand. Be not exceedingly angry, O Lord, neither remember our iniquity forever; behold, see, we beseech thee, we are all thy people.” Are you one of the ones who thinks you are so near, yet far from God? Then it’s time to change your status.
They say confession is good for the soul. This is so true, because, when you can come to the full realization that you can’t hide anything from God, and start confessing your sins instead of trying to hide them, then you will be in right standing and on good terms with God. God knows all the skeletons in your closet, so you better confess and clear it out, before the people you don’t want to know finds them. Confess your sins so God can dump them in the sea of forgetfulness, and you can proudly say, “There is, therefore, now no condemnation to them who are in Christ Jesus, who walk not after the flesh, but after the Spirit.” – Romans 8:1 Can you say that? Or are you still so near but far away? It’s time to get it right, we are living in the last days. The perilous times are upon us, read 2 Timothy 3:1.
“Seek the Lord while He may be found, call ye upon Him while He is near; let the wicked forsake his way, and the unrighteous man his thoughts, and let him return unto the Lord, and He will have mercy upon him; and to our God for He will abundantly pardon.” – Isaiah 55:6-7 “Many are the afflictions of the righteous; but the Lord delivereth him out of them all” – Psalm 34 :19 Are you in that category or far from it?

To God be the glory, praise, honor and thanks for using me to inform you this day. May His Holy Spirit give you the necessary tools needed to grasp and act on His words. And I by the power given to me in Matthew 18:18 and Luke 10:19, I bind the hand of the enemy and its forces, who try to steal this word, and blind your eyes, and harden your heart from receiving this truth and acting upon it. I ask God, the Father of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ, to loose the Holy Spirit and the Heavenly angels to secure this word so that it reaches its intended people, according to Matthew 16:19 and Luke 10:19 in the omnipotent name of Jesus, Amen.
