Your Confession

Luk 12:8  Also I say unto you, Whosoever shall confess me before men, him shall the Son of man also confess before the angels of God: 
Luk 12:9  But he that denieth me before men shall be denied before the angels of God. 
Luk 12:10  And whosoever shall speak a word against the Son of man, it shall be forgiven him: but unto him that blasphemeth against the Holy Ghost it shall not be forgiven. 
Luk 12:11  And when they bring you unto the synagogues, and unto magistrates, and powers, take ye no thought how or what thing ye shall answer, or what ye shall say: 
Luk 12:12  For the Holy Ghost shall teach you in the same hour what ye ought to say. 

Tomorrow is Easter, when we are to remember that Jesus went to the cross to shed his blood and to die in our place, and He arose from the grave on the third day. I confess that Jesus is my Lord and savior. Some will not come to Jesus because they are afraid of what those in the world will say. Our concern should be what pleases God. Water baptism is a symbol of our being buried with Christ and coming up from the grave into new life. Have you been baptized? This is a place to confess before men and the angels that you believe in Jesus Christ and trust him for your salvation.

Those who cannot say that Jesus is Lord may be forgiven, but if they continue in unbelief and refuse to see him as he is; the Lord and savior, then they are resisting the power of God for salvation. Do not resist God by denying Jesus and the wooing of the Holy Spirit. To receive Jesus as Lord and savior requires submission to the Spirit of God. The Holy Spirit will continue with you to show you all truth and he will speak through you in times when you cannot speak for yourself. Letting the Spirit of God speak through you is to submit to the will of God. Study his word and pray and follow his Spirit so that your life will be a positive confession of the power of the resurrected Lord Jesus Christ.

Mat 28:1  In the end of the sabbath, as it began to dawn toward the first day of the week, came Mary Magdalene and the other Mary to see the sepulchre. 
Mat 28:2  And, behold, there was a great earthquake: for the angel of the Lord descended from heaven, and came and rolled back the stone from the door, and sat upon it. 
Mat 28:3  His countenance was like lightning, and his raiment white as snow: 
Mat 28:4  And for fear of him the keepers did shake, and became as dead men. 
Mat 28:5  And the angel answered and said unto the women, Fear not ye: for I know that ye seek Jesus, which was crucified. 
Mat 28:6  He is not here: for he is risen, as he said. Come, see the place where the Lord lay. 
Mat 28:7  And go quickly, and tell his disciples that he is risen from the dead; and, behold, he goeth before you into Galilee; there shall ye see him: lo, I have told you.
