That if thou shalt confess with thy mouth the Lord Jesus, and shalt believe in thine heart that God hath raised him from the dead, thou shalt be saved – Romans 10:9KJV.

Salvation {soteria} is a Greek word meaning, “to save or to deliver” just as like used in Colossians 1:13, where it says; we have been delivered from the kingdom of darkness to the kingdom of Light. The gospel has the ability to save you from any predicament you find yourself in.

When you heard the gospel, faith was imparted into your spirit, but that didn’t save you from going to hell, even though the gospel has the power to save everyone who believes. You had to confess your salvation – you had to speak it out with your mouth because confession is the one that makes your salvation vital.

The process of salvation is “two-pronged”, first your heart has to believe it and then you confess it. Your heart and your mouth have to be in sync. Incidentally some people believe they can be saved and do not confess, while some confess what they don’t have. It won’t work. Believing alone is not enough; confessing what you don’t have in your heart won’t work either. In summary; you cannot give or say what you don’t have.

If you tell someone that “I love you” when your heart is saying “I hate you”, it doesn’t work.

You want to save your business or your marriage from collapsing? Confess what you want to see and stop talking darkness.
