TRUE CONFESSION

  Confession is a formal statement admitting to a crime, but True confession is a formal statement admitting to a crime and never doing it again. Here a crime means sins and a person admits his/her sins before God to seek forgiveness and purification. Somebody can confess for his wrong did but in next few days he repeat the same doings, this is not a true confession. The true confession is to confess and not repeat what you have confessed for.
The word of God considers the person as the dog returns to his vomit or a sow after being washed wallowing on mire; after his sanctification then repeat on wrong doings (sins).
2 Peter 2:21 For it would have been better for them no to have known the way of righteousness, than having known it, to turn from the holy commandment delivered to them. But it has happened to them according to the true proverb: “A dog returns to his own vomit,” and, “a sow, having washed, to her wallowing in the mire.”
Also the scriptures tell us that; it is better not to know the way of righteousness than known it and turning back to sins. Because when the person knows the true way is when satan raise a fighting against him, to ensure he will not stand on the right path. And if this person failed to stand he fall on satan hands, where he is given no chance to confess and return to God unless by God’s mercy.

TRUE CONFESSION STAGES
Ø  Know the sin(s)
Ø  Remorse
Ø  Confess
Ø  Do not repeat
Mathew 27:3-4 Then Judas, His betrayer, seeing that He had been condemned, was remorseful and brought back the thirty pieces of silver to the chief priests and elders, Saying, “I have sinned by betraying innocent blood.” And they said, “What is that to us? You see to it.” Then he threw down the pieces of silver in the temple and departed, and went and hanged himself.
The above scripture shows us some of the stages of confession; Judas knew his sin (betrayal sin), remorse for his betrayal BUT he did not confess for his sin rather than hanged himself. By hanging himself he added sin on sin (the betrayal sin and suicide sin). And this mistake happens to most of us, instead of confessing we try to cover our sins by sinning again. Take an example:- if somebody get pregnant due to adultery instead of confessing his/her sin the next step is aborting the pregnancy. Whenever you do a sin, remorse and confess then ask Jesus to give you power to stand sanctified.
Philippians 4:17 “I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me”. Anybody can live a holy life (sanctified one)  only when he/she allowed Jesus to intervene his/her life. Only Jesus can make you win sins, elect Jesus now.
GOD (JEHOVA) BLESS YOU. AMEN.
