Confession Must Match Conduct

Many people, perhaps even yourself, have gone to different churches seeking the latest and greatest move of the Spirit.  They learn how to speak in tongues, how to pray in the Spirit and how to lay hands on the sick.  Yet, they forget all about the natural and how they should be living their life here on earth.

 

Let me tell you something.  You can’t just confess the Word of God and expect something miraculous to happen.  You’ve got to step out in faith and take action and actually do what God’s Word teaches and instructs you to do.  You must confess the word of God and have your conduct match it.  Even spoken faith without words is dead.

 

James 2:14-26

14 What does it profit, my brethren, if someone says he has faith but does not have works? Can faith save him?  15  If a brother or sister is naked and destitute of daily food,  16  and one of you says to them, “Depart in peace, be warmed and filled,” but you do not give them the things which are needed for the body, what does it profit?  17  Thus also faith by itself, if it does not have works, is dead.  18  But someone will say, “You have faith, and I have works.” Show me your faith without your works, and I will show you my faith by my works.  19  You believe that there is one God. You do well. Even the demons believe–and tremble!  20  But do you want to know, O foolish man, that faith without works is dead?  21  Was not Abraham our father justified by works when he offered Isaac his son on the altar?  22  Do you see that faith was working together with his works, and by works faith was made perfect?  23  And the Scripture was fulfilled which says, “ABRAHAM BELIEVED GOD, AND IT WAS ACCOUNTED TO HIM FOR RIGHTEOUSNESS.” And he was called the friend of God.  24  You see then that a man is justified by works, and not by faith only.  25  Likewise, was not Rahab the harlot also justified by works when she received the messengers and sent them out another way?  26  For as the body without the spirit is dead, so faith without works is dead also.

 

Women, as your husband confesses the Word of God, gives you roses on Shabbat, and prays Proverbs 31 over you, it’s important that you adapt to your husband’s role of leadership in your marriage and family.

 

Men, if you come into the Torah and allow God to guide you through the process, I guarantee that in twelve months, God will make you a new man.  God will transform you if you will just come out of the Nations and into the Torah.

 

We don’t follow the Torah for righteousness or salvation.  We follow the Torah out of obedience because Jesus saved us.

 

God will change your life when you make the decision to follow Torah!  Choosing to lay down your flesh as a sign of faith, just like Isaac did on Mount Moriah with Abraham, means you’re choosing to become a different person.

 

Choose to have your confession match the way you conduct your life.

 

Blessings and Shalom,
