We Hear and Confess that He is Lord

“But they have not all obeyed the gospel. For Esaias saith, Lord, who hath believed our report? So then faith cometh by hearing, and hearing by the word of God.” Rom 10:16,17

(“Word” in this verse, comes from the word rhēma which means an utterance, and a saying)

Who would believe OUR report? We have shared the gospel with them and they believe not.. aha… but Faith comes by hearing (our ears are opened, the deaf hear).. and hearing comes BY the utterance of God.. God speaks, and we hear, and we believe.

“…I was found of them that sought me not; I was made manifest unto them that asked not after me.” Rom 10:20

We confess Him as Lord… not repeat…..or quote.. or recite an official prayer… but confession is made, revealing the new heart..

Confess” in the dictionary means to own and to declare by way of revelation.

No man can confess He is Lord apart from the Spirit of God (1 Cor 12:3). He has made Himself manifest unto us, and has caused us to know Him.. out of this Truth dwelling in us.. we confess that He is Lord.

Its not the mouthspeak that saves us…any man can say He is Lord… but to confess it as Truth is another thing.. because He is alive, and He lives in us, and reigns in us… we confess what is true in us.
“That the God of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Father of glory, may give unto you the spirit of wisdom and revelation in the knowledge of him: The eyes of your understanding being enlightened; that ye may know what is the hope of his calling, and what the riches of the glory of his inheritance in the saints, And what is the exceeding greatness of his power to us-ward who believe, according to the working of his mighty power” Eph 1:17-19

Our deaf ears and our blind eyes are opened.. we testify what we have seen and heard… and out of the abundance of the heart, the mouth speaks. The treasure in our heart that we speak of is Christ. (Luke 6:45)

    Looove that.. two different overflows.. river of life from the throne, and river of death from the enemy.. God utters.. and the Spirit gives us utterance… we hear, and then we speak.

    outta th abundance of th heart…love tha vs…confession isnt mouthspeak…exactly right…many will say to Him Lord Lord but He will say away from me u workers of iniquity…and also…not everyone who say Lord Lord will enter into the Kingdom of God but only who do th will of th Father…so there it is…its easy to listen to a lotta talk on th net…but th real stuff isnt th cheap talkin adam…its th Spirit walkin Christ in us that shows up as fruit…us livin inside out…

    the river that flows from God’s throne, th whole word that proceeds from His mouth (Christ) is th Spirit of God…and theres a flood that the enemy threw out to overthrow th woman clothes wit th sun too…whoever reigns in u…thats th overflow gonna pour outta u…th spirit of this world or th Spirit of God…th Lord told th disciples u dont know what spirit u are of bc they wanna curse and kill…its not mere words that determine confession; anyone can post scripture and look good…but its th life IN th man that pours out that is his confession…
