The Spirit of Faith Newsletter – July 1983 (Print Edition)
In past months we have dealt with the importance of commitment, dedication and the need for intercessory prayer in this newsletter. This month our topic is the basics of faith and confession. Some might say, “But Brother Bill, that is ‘old hat,’ I’ve heard all that before.” Maybe you have heard it all, maybe you haven’t! Is the Word of God working for you in this area? If it is – GREAT! Maybe you can afford to stress another area for a while. But if confession of the Word is not working as consistently for you as it should then you need to study it again.
Is the study of confession of the mouth really all that important? Yes! It is at the very heart of our Christian walk. You had to confess Jesus as Lord with your mouth to be born again according do Romans 10:9, 10. This principle of the power of words is found all the way through the Bible. Understanding Mark 11:23, 24 is vital to our success in every area of our life. If you cease to confess God’s Word concerning your health – satan will begin to attack you in that area. If you are no longer speaking words of success over your business affairs – your prosperity will begin to wane. We need to continue in what we have learned about the power and authority of our words, as well as developing ourselves in other areas.
I realize that some think that they have “outgrown” the teaching of confession of God’s Word. They think, “I’ve heard all that before, let’s go on to something else!” We need to take Paul’s words to heart in Philippians 3:1, “Finally, my brethren, rejoice in the Lord. To write the same things to you, to me indeed is not grievous, but for you it is safe.” The teaching of confession might be one of the “same things” he’s speaking of. Something you’ve heard taught for years. But for you to have a “refresher course” this month on The Spirit of Faith Broadcast is safe for you!
