Conversations wit Coyfee discusses the Differences in Repentance and Confession of Sin

Hello Family

What is the difference between Repentance and Confession?

I awoke with a very clear understanding on the topic of confession and repentance. Many Christian scholars stated that Confession comes before repentance. They will tell you that God is faithful enough to forgive you if you confess your sins.

Well what happens if you commit the same sin again? A friend and I were talking about this issue. She stated that if you continue to live in sin you are not sold out to God. I really didn't argue that point but I stated that David, one of my favorite patriarchs, sinned often, yet "God stated that David was a man after his own heart. Samuel 13:13-15."

I wondered about a lot of things, for example; the scripture that states if we confess ours sins he removes them and remembers them no more...Isaiah 43:25 I, even I, am he that blotteth out thy transgressions for mine own sake, and will not remember thy sins. Well, if he remembers the sinful behavior no more, how does God know that we have committed the same sinful behavior before? That one is still stewing. We as a people of God spend far too much time focusing on our failures. We are so sin conscious that we can not see the power of God in everyday life.

As I napped this afternoon, I know that the spirit of God was helping me to understand what Confession is. "Confession is the admittance of sin; Encarta Dictionary: English (North American): an admission of having done something wrong or embarrassing; verbal statement admitting the commission of a crime."

Ponder examples of everyday life..We should allow people to come to God just as they are..This is as it should be. Remember, that Jesus calls us while we are deep in sin. He does not demand that we give up anything to come to him but he knows that once we become immersed in his goodness, we will desire to change. He will not disqualify us because we look and smell like the world. He will draw us closer to him for He longs for us to long for Him.

We the (Saved Al readies) begin to judge them. They are not changing fast enough. They still smell like the stench of this world. They are still living in sinful relationships, they are still drinking the devil's drink, they are still smoking the herbs of the earth. How can they think that God can love them. They do not look like nor sound like what we do, Saved Al readies. Confession is to admit that you are wrong. Confession does not require you to stop doing that which is wrong. The scripture states that if you are faithful enough to confess your sin then God is faithful and just to forgive you.." period. We should not add anything else to this point.

Now Repentance, to feel regret about a sin or past actions and change your ways or habits. This is paramount. We must be spiritually wise enough to be able to sense who Jesus is talking to when he is dictating the Holy Scriptures. Confession, is the admission of sin. Confession is to acknowledge bad behavior or a negative act. Repentance, I believe is being sorrowful and desiring a change. To repent takes the Goodness of God. How will someone know that God is good? Well by the love that is shown to them in Christ Jesus. The love of the Saints seen as gentle patience. This weak one gains strength to stand against what used to weigh him or her down. Scripture tells us in Romans, it is the Goodness of God (Romans 2:4-11) that brings a man to repentance. Understand, not the brow beating of other saints that are disgusted with the look of delayed progression.

It is for the Spirit of God to begin to gently tear that behavior away from them. Now, keep in mind that the Holy Spirit knows the heart of man. He knows those that sincerely desire to walk with God though they have a limp. There were those who desired to follow God with everything that they have, because they love him. They walked slower than the rest because they have been injured in their fight for freedom. Yet, they were still walking, or crawling, and in some cases were being carried. They were determined to follow him.

Many of them looked like the world. There were not dressed for the part but still they came. They cried out to Jesus to change them everyday and every night. They read their bibles daily. They didn't eat at all to slay their flesh. All this they did and still some fell back. Did we reach out to them? Did we do all that we could to attempt to save some? The answer is NO! We have become religious and callous. We have become the people we use to hate. When we first came to Christ, many of us were beat down by rules and regulations. Some of us were kicked out of churches because we did not dress right. Some of us were kicked out because of where we lived or we lived with. Is it not amazing that we have become what we had hated? How does God protect those, his little children? They are His prodigal children. He blinds many of them to the ways of the church. This will keep them coming so that the anointing can begin to do what we thought we could do thru talking. I have a News Flash for you! The only way to set a person free is thru the anointing of the Spirit of God.

You can talk until you are blue in the face but if you are not anointed you should shut up. God will begin to mend the tears generated by the world, the church, and the enemy piece by piece. He (Holy Spirit) begins to place himself where there used to be other things. He begins to reveal more and more of himself to them. The more of him they see the more of him they want. Are they perfect yet? NO, but neither are we. We the Saints or the Saved Al readies, sin daily either by thought or deed.

Why then does not every person, confess their sins and repent of their sinful behavior? I believe a lot of that is because of us, the Saved Al readies. We can be really mean and short cited. We will throw the baby and the bath water out together.
Now, I am not stating that we should not teach from the Bible, whole the truth. However, we should not teach our opinion, nor our interpretation, but just the word of God. His word has healed many a broken spirits. He, who is the potter, knows how to gently press out the blemishes that have marred our precious souls. He softly places us on the pottery board to adjust our damaged inner parts. He can repair us all. No matter what activity or life style we chose before we knew him. He can and will repair us.

Thank you. As always I desire to share life to those that are near death (spiritual), and to build up those that are beaten down. To encourage those (even some of us) that are not completely sold out but desire to embrace Jesus. These are the ones that do not look like the imagine of the church but yet they do belong to Jesus. The bible's message is clear that if we recieve Jesus..then He (thru the work of the Holy Spirit) will change us. "For I am confident of this very thing, that He who began a good work in you will perfect it until the day of Christ Jesus." Philippians 1:5-7 NAS "

God, investigate my life; get all the facts firsthand.    I'm an open book to you;       even from a distance, you know what I'm thinking.   You know when I leave and when I get back;      I'm never out of your sight.   You know everything I'm going to say      before I start the first sentence.   I look behind me and you're there,      then up ahead and you're there, too—      your reassuring presence, coming and going.   This is too much, too wonderful—      I can't take it all in!    Psalm 139: 1-6   Boy, it takes a whole lot of faith to stare into the beauty of creation and then think that it just accidentally or randomly happened.  To see the delicate balance there is in life and…See More
