Good evening everyone,my views of what i learnt from the teachings of brother Eli in today's mass of indoctrination.
Confession of sin is very vital in our lives as Christians and so therefore we are to make it a part of our daily life.
I understood that we should not in any way confess to our pastor or priest but to GOD first and then to the person we offended.
James 5:16 (KJV) Confess your faults one to another, and pray one for another, that ye may be healed. The effectual fervent prayer of a righteous man availeth much.
Also here in the book of 1 john talked about confession 1 John 1:9-10 (KJV) 9 If we confess our sins, he is faithful and just to forgive us our sins, and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness.
10 If we say that we have not sinned, we make him a liar, and his word is not in us.
And if we do not confess our sins we won't prosper.Proverbs 28:13 (KJV) He that covereth his sins shall not prosper: but whoso confesseth and forsaketh them shall have mercy.
Also i learnt that if we ever ask GOD of any thing in the name of JESUS that we surely get our request granted according to the book of John 14:13 (KJV) And whatsoever ye shall ask in my name, that will I do, that the Father may be glorified in the Son.
Also we should have our faith up when asking,our faith should not wave when asking from our GOD Matthew 21:21-22 (KJV) 21 Jesus answered and said unto them, Verily I say unto you, If ye have faith, and doubt not, ye shall not only do this which is done to the fig tree, but also if ye shall say unto this mountain, Be thou removed, and be thou cast into the sea; it shall be done.
22 And all things, whatsoever ye shall ask in prayer, believing, ye shall receive.
Thanks and God bless
