Hagin Central Truth: The confession of our lips will give either God dominion over us or Satan dominion over us. As we have been studying about confession, we have learned that if our confessing is wrong it is because our believing is wrong. If our believing is wrong, it is because our thinking is wrong. And if our thinking is wrong, it is because our mind has not yet been renewed with the Word of God.
For verily I say unto you, That whosoever shall say … and shall not doubt in his heart, but shall believe … shall have whatsoever he saith. Therefore I say unto you, What things soever ye desire, when ye pray, believe that ye receive them, and ye shall have them.
The intellect and the physical senses will fight him every step of the way to keep him from entering that realm, because if the natural mind is not renewed by the Word of God, it wants to hold him in the natural realm. But there is a spiritual realm, and this is realty the realm of the Christian.
Right and Wrong Confession Looking into the matter of wrong thinking, wrong believing, and wrong confessing, let us ask the question, just what is a wrong confession? Wrong confession is a confession of defeat and failure, and of the supremacy of Satan. Talking about how the devil is hindering you and keeping you from success, about how he is holding you in bondage, about how he is keeping you sick, is a confession of defeat.
And such a confession simply glorifies the devil. As we have said in previous lessons, confession is witnessing for a truth that we have embraced, testifying of something we know, and affirming something that we believe.
Just as when we testify to what God has done for us, we are glorifying Him; by the same token, when we talk about what the devil is doing, of our failures and defeats, we are glorifying the devil.
Many people lose the blessing that God has for them just by making a wrong confession. They are defeated and life is just a grind to them. Actually a wrong confession that glorifies the devil is an unconscious declaration that God is a failure. Such a confession destroys our faith and holds us in bondage. Therefore, with your mouth you are going to either give God dominion over you; or you are going to give Satan dominion over you.
The confession of your lips that has grown out of faith in your heart will absolutely defeat the devil in every combat. That means He is our Lord. When we confess His Lordship over us, He begins to have dominion over us and rule in our life. He is the god of this world, and he will move right in because we permitted him to do so.
Even though it may be a permission of ignorance or an unconscious consent, it is nevertheless consent. And when Satan has dominion, we are filled with weakness and fear. Overcoming Fear and Doubt II Timothy 7 For God hath not given us the spirit of fear; but of power, and of love, and of a sound mind. Even though in the natural we may sometimes feel afraid, we should never confess fear. Fear is not of God. It is something that is coming from outside, trying to get hold of you.
It is the enemy. This is not to say that you should not admit doubt and fear if you have them. Doubt is of the devil. Doubt is contraband goods. Doubt is evil. A lot of people think they are being honest when they confess that they are afraid or that they doubt. You may have been tempted to doubt and have listened to the devil, but you can put him on the run by resisting him. Start talking about who you are and what you are in Christ, as we discussed in our last lesson.
You are a believer. You are a new creature. Talk that, believe that, think that. Refuse in the name of the Lord Jesus Christ to doubt and fear and they will leave you. If you entertain them, however, they will come right in and rob and defeat you. I am a child of God and He is with me. He has not given me a spirit of fear, but of power, and love and of a sound mind.
God is a faith God. We are faith children of a faith God. In one of my meetings a lady told me about her sister who was in a mental institution. She understands what is said to her. Occasionally I can bring her home for two-week periods. I am going to bring her home now so she can attend these meetings. I believe they will help her. The doctors released her, giving her a clean bill of health.
In the past she had been confessing defeat, fear, and doubt until they became a part of her. But as she listened to the Word preached, she saw where she had missed it; she began to confess the right thing and was healed.
Seeing the remarkable recovery of this woman, another lady in the church was inspired to bring her neighbor who had just been assigned to the state mental hospital but had not yet left. Neither the woman nor her husband were Christians, but he consented to let her attend our services with her neighbor. Within a week the woman had been saved, healed, and filled with the Holy Ghost; and she never did go to the mental hospital. People can become sick mentally as well as physically, and God can heal mental illnesses as easily as He can physical.
We have to recognize that God has not given us a spirit of fear. We need to learn to stand against the enemy. Remember, confession of fear gives fear dominion over you. Your fears become stronger and you come more into the bondage of the enemy. When you confess your doubts and fears, your weaknesses and diseases, you are openly confessing that the Word of God is not true and that God has failed to make it good.
His Word declares that by His stripes you were healed. I Peter 24 Who his own self bare our sins in his own body on the tree, that we, being dead to sins, should live unto righteousness: by whose stripes ye were healed.
Matthew 17 That it might be fulfilled which was spoken by Esaias the prophet, saying, Himself took our infirmities, and bare our sicknesses. But when we start confessing that He has already done something about our sickness, then we will receive healing.
