Confession is a way of escape from sins,and it’s good for the mind, body,soul,and Spirit. Why? Because,God promises not only to forgive us ,but to also cleanse us,that’s why it’s good. God didn’t create us to disobey, nor sin against Him. Yet folks deliberately, and defiantly chose to sin against Him. However, He always provides a way of escape, 1 Corinthians 10:13 says, “There hath no temptation taken you but such as is common to man, but God is faithful, who will not permit you to be tempted above that ye are able, but will with the temptation, also make the way to escape, that ye may be able to bear it.” So why aren’t people taking advantage of the escape route from sin. As James 1:14 says,it’s because, they’re drawn away by their own lust,and enticed. The devil should not be able to draw you away from God that easy,if you truely love and want to please God. The question is how much do you love God,above the things of this world,that He created. If you are ready to go all out for God.
Here are a few scriptures of turning away from sin and the benefits (or value) that comes from doing so):
1 John 1:9 “If we confess our sins, He is faithful and just to forgive us our sins, and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness.”
Lamentations 3:40 suggests, “Let us search and try our ways, and turn again to the Lord.”
Ezekiel 18:20-21 says, ” The soul that sinneth, it shall die, the son shall not bear the iniquity of the father, neither shall the father bear the iniquity of the son, the righteousness of the righteous shall be upon him, and the wickedness of the wicked shall be upon him. But if the wicked will turn from all his sins that he hath committed, and keep all my statutes, and do that which is lawful and right, he shall surely live, he shall not die.”
2 Chronicles 7:14 puts it like this, “If My people, who are called by My Name, shall humble themselves, and pray, and seek my face, and turn from their wicked ways, then will I hear from heaven, and will forgive their sin, and will heal their land.”
An example of confession and prayer is found in Daniel 9:3-19 “And I set my face unto the Lord God,to seek by prayer and supplication,with fasting, and washcloth,and ashes:and I prayed unto the Lord,my God,and made my confession,and said,O Lord,the great and dreadful God,keeping the covenant and mercy to them that love Him,and to them that keep His commandments, we have sinned,and have committed iniquity, and have done wickedly,and have rebelled, even by departing from thy precepts and from thine judgments. …”
This also means that no confession means more problems,and no pardon from sins. If you are still not satisfied just go to the top of this blog, click onto the salvation page,and follow that instructions, then allow the Indwelling Holy Spirit to lead,guide,and direct you for the rest of your life.
