FACE THE FACTS AND SAY IT’S SO

face the facts and say its so

Hebrews 13:5 Let your conversation be without covetousness; and be content with such things as ye have: for he hath said, I will never leave thee, nor forsake thee. 6 So that we may boldly say, The Lord is my helper, and I will not fear what man shall do unto me.

 

 

The church as a whole has not failed in the proclamation of the Gospel (preaching it), but in the explanation (teaching) of the truths of our redemption in Christ.  Because of that very few believers have much knowledge of the facts of their position in Christ or truths of their redemption.

 

A fact is a thing that has actually happened and really is true; the state of things as they are; reality; actuality. You can try to deny it; or refuse to acknowledge the fact. Denial is “a saying no” to a fact. It means to refuse to accept or believe as true; to reject it as unreal or unfounded. We can choose to deny the facts or we can face the facts and say it is so.

 

The Bible states many facts about our redemption and who we are “In Christ. All these facts actually happened and are really true. They are the state of things as they really are; reality. All these facts went into effect the moment we got saved but were made available after Jesus went to the cross. God’s work in Jesus was greater than the devil’s work in Adam. We spend most of our life looking at the wrong facts.

 

Hebrews 13:5, 6 tells us that whatever He hath said we may boldly say.  This is what His Word says about us just from one chapter in Ephesians 1:

 

Ephesians 1:3-7

3 Blessed be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, who hath blessed us with all spiritual blessings in heavenly places in Christ:

WE ARE BLESSED

 

4 According as he hath chosen us in him before the foundation of the world, that we should be holy and without blame before him in love:

WE ARE CHOSEN

 

5 Having predestinated us unto the adoption of children by Jesus Christ to himself, according to the good pleasure of his will,

WE ARE PREDESTINATED

 

6 To the praise of the glory of his grace, wherein he hath made us accepted in the beloved.

WE ARE ACCEPTED

 

7 In whom we have redemption through his blood, the forgiveness of sins, according to the riches of his grace;

WE ARE REDEEMED

 

You are as “in” with God as you can be “IN CHRIST.” Philemon 6 says, “That the communication of thy faith may become effectual by the acknowledging of every good thing which is in you in Christ Jesus.” One aspect of faith is speaking words that affirm your faith. An acknowledgement or affirmation is a statement of a fact or supposed fact. Acknowledge, affirm, and give full recognition to the facts of every good thing in you that is in Christ. Examine all the past tense facts on God’s Word and say it is so. Psalm 107:2 says, “Let the redeemed of the Lord say so….”

 

You are as “in” with God as you can be “IN CHRIST. Give full recognition to the facts of every good thing in you that is in Christ (Philemon 6).
