It is necessary that there be a continual confession of our redemption from Satan’s dominion and that he no longer
rules us with condemnation nor fear of disease.

We hold fast to this confession, as our confession is Satan’s defeat.

We believers do not ask to be healed, because we have been healed.

We do not ask to be made Righteous, because we have been made Righteous.

We do not ask to be Redeemed, for our Redemption is an absolute fact.

In the mind of the Father, we are perfectly healed and perfectly free from sin, because He laid our diseases and our
sins upon His Son.

His Son was made sin with our sins.  He was made sick with our diseases.

In the mind of Christ, we are perfectly healed because He can remember when He was made sin with our sins, when He
was made sick with our diseases.  He remembers when He put our sin and our diseases away.

In the mind of the Holy Spirit we are absolutely free from both, for He remembers when Christ was made sin and when
He was made sick.  He remembers when He raised Jesus from the dead.

Christ was free from our sin and our sickness.  Both had been put away before His Resurrection.

The Word declares that “By His stripes we were healed.”

The whole problem is our recognition of the absolute truthfulness of that Word.

It is not good taste to ask Him to heal us, for He has already done it.

This truth came with a shock when I first saw it.  He declared that we are healed; therefore we are.

The only problem now is to get in perfect harmony with His Word.

If He declares we are healed, then our part is to thank Him for the work He has already accomplished.

Our confession imprisons us or sets us free.

A strong confession coupled with a corresponding action on the Word brings God on the scene.

Holding fast to one’s confession when the senses contradict shows that one has become established in the Word.

A Satan-inspired confession is always dangerous.  Remember that he brought that disease, put it upon you.
Your acknowledgement of the disease is like signing for a package that the express company has left you.  Satan then
has the receipt for your disease.  You have accepted it.  

“Surely He hath borne our sickness and carried our disease” is God’s receipt for our perfect healing.

A positive confession dominates circumstances, while a vacillating confession permits circumstances to govern one.

Your confession is what God says about your disease.

A negative confession will make the disease stronger.

Then your confession heals or keeps you sick.

The confession of your lips should have your heart’s full agreement.
