James 5:16

Confess Your Sins to One Another to Be Healed

Transcript

James 5:16 therefore confess your sins to one another and pray for one another so that you may be healed the effective prayer of a righteous man can accomplish much the interesting thing about that is there are always two ditches on either side of truth it says in that scripture when we confess our sins to one another that we are healed many many years ago in the church I think a deception entered in and this lie came you have to confess your sins to a man in order to be forgiven that’s not what it says it doesn’t say you have to confess your sins to a man to be forgiven as a matter of fact the Bible says there is one mediator between God and man the man Christ Jesus so when we confess our sins to God instantly we’re forgiven many people are not healed why? when do you get healed when you confess your sins and your faults before others so for many many years people believed the ditch on one side of the truth which was you have to confess your sins to a man to be forgiven and then Martin Luther came along and he said that’s not true you don’t have to confess your sins to a man you just confess your sins to God and you’re forgiven people discontinued in the protestant church confessing their sins ever to a man only to God the consequence of that is you have a lot of people that are forgiven because they’ve confessed to God but they’ve never been healed they’re walking around with wounds and all kinds of baggage on the inside because they weren’t healed here’s the truth confess to God and be forgiven confess before men and you’re healed that is part of why we have Ancient Paths seminars all over the world is to give people an opportunity in a small group to open their hearts and share things that perhaps they haven’t shared at other times not under any kind of pressure or duress but just to have an opportunity to open their hearts and share before people and you know what we see healing every time tremendous healing coming to people you don’t have to confess to a man to be forgiven you confess to God to be forgiven but on the other hand many people think I never have to confess before men and the consequence of that is you’re never healed so if you want to be forgiven confess to God if you want to be healed confess to men if you want to be forgiven and healed confess before God and receive his forgiveness open your heart before one another that doesn’t mean you write it on the front page of the news paper or speak things things that are sensitive areas of sin in your life you don’t speak that out before people that are unsafe type of people people that are gossips or people that you don’t trust but everyone of us needs to have a few people or a small group where we can open our heart and confess the things that are really yucky the things that we don’t want anybody else to know everybody has to have a place like that if you don’t you’re not healed so confess before men confess your sins or faults before men to be healed let me just pray for you today I pray in the mighty name of Yeshua that you would have a safe place where you could open your heart and share the depths of your heart before just a few trusted others that their prayers might be effective and that you might be healed I pray in the mighty name of Yeshua that you would not only be forgiven but that you would feel forgiven and that you would be healed in His name Amen
