The Law of Confession

The Law of Confession

 ‘The Laws of the Spirit’- By Bob Buses-This is the article about, The Law of Confession- To build strength through proper use of words, The Law of the Spirit is based on Rom. 8:2. “For the law of the Spirit of life in Christ Jesus hath made me free from the law of sin and death.” Every Word of God is a Spirit Word. Jn. 6:63 “It is the Spirit that quickeneth; the flesh profiteth nothing: the words that I speak unto you, they are spirit, and they are life.” They are the truths of God’s Spirit. They are Spirit laws. When acted upon they produce life. 


1 The Law of Confession- To build strength through proper use of words

  •  2 The Law of Meditation- (For prayer and seeking God, and for building God into your life) 
  •  3 The Law of Prosperity-  (For building success into your life in all areas) 
  • 4 The Law of Riches- (To overcome poverty in personal life and your church) 
  • 5 The Law of Giving- (To understand the law of increase through giving) 
  • 6 The Law of Poverty-  (To wash out traditional teachings concerning poverty) 
  • 7 The Law of Abundance- (To build into your thinking the Abundance of God’s blessings) 
  •  8 The Law of Strength- (To overcome weakness and failure in your life) 
  •  9 The Law of Growth- (Use to open your life to growth and enlargement in Christ) 
  •  10 The Law of Deliverance-  (To build faith for deliverance in all areas) 
  •  11 The Law of Healing- (Read over and over when sick) 
  • 12 The Law of Safety- (Read before trips, or when fear tempts you or to children before they leave home)
  • When ignored through ignorance or rebellion, they produce death.

The law of the Spirit is life.

  • This law, when acted upon, makes one free from the opposite law.
  • The law of sin is death.
  • Obey sin and unbelief; then death follows.
  • So every promise that you believe and act upon regardless of emotion or feeling produces life and deliverance from bondage.
  •  Jn. 8:32 “Ye shall know the truth and the truth shall make you free.”

As you continue in God’s Word, then you become a full-grown son.

  • You become a real disciple.
  • You then operate in God’s truth.
  • This truth liberates you.
  • The entire purpose of this book is to put the Word of God in your heart. 
  • The reader is encouraged to apply this Word to daily problems.

 Each time the Word makes a statement,

  • the believer or reader is encouraged and taught to act upon that Word regardless of feelings, emotions, or previous experience to the contrary.
  • As the believer begins to believe the Word of God regardless of experience or emotions,
  • then full-grown faith begins to manifest itself in the heart.
  • Therefore, the reason for this book is to help you to let the Word of God become your law of life instead of experience,
  • and unbelief your law of sin and death.

The Law of Confession

The scriptures are placed at the beginning of each subdivision.

  • Then the same scriptures are discussed immediately following.
  • This follows throughout the entire book.
  • My suggestion is that you use these scriptures to build faith.
  • This is why I have them all at the beginning of each topic.

Read and reread these scriptures daily to build faith.

  • These scriptures are also good for Bible studies and prayer groups.
  • These scriptures have accumulated in my notebook from my daily devotional studies.
  • I have not tried to cover the entire field.
  • You can easily build several messages out of each topic.
  • I Pet. 2:2 “Like newborn babies, desire the sincere milk of the Word that ye may grow thereby.”
  • Newborn babes drink milk every three or four hours.
  • Take a Word break rather than a coffee break.
  • Put a vitamin in you every few hours to build up the Spiritual deficiency in any area you find lacking.

These scriptures serve as vitamin pills.

  •  Read them, and reread them daily under the subject most needed during that day.
  • I usually read them during devotion over and over.
  • Then I stop and pray after the verses as I feel led.
  • One chapter is plenty to work on during the day.

However, you may feel led to use several or parts of several.

  • Read the book completely through several times.
  • Then use it as a faith builder daily.
  • After you have read the book through a couple of times you may want to disregard the comments.
  • Just stick to the scriptures under each topic.

The Law of Confession

 When you need healing, read verses over and over under healing. 

  • Read them until you believe in healing more than you do the Devil’s sickness.
  • When weak, read the scriptures on Strength over and over until you are convinced of God’s law of strength.
  • Automatically you will begin to disbelieve in Satan’s law of weakness.
  • Thus you can use the different chapters in daily faith-building.
  • Some of the scriptures used are taken out of context and are applied spiritually for the reader today.
  • 2 Tim. 3:16 “All scripture is … profitable.”
  • 1 Cor. 10:11 “Now all these things happened unto them for ensamples: and they were written for our admonition …”

  •  Your heart speaks through the lips and the fruit is therefore born on the lips.
  •  Negative words tear and destroy what the good words have built up.
  •  Every good word builds a shield around you.
  •  Every negative word tears this shield down.

  • Mt. 12:35-37  “A good man out of the good treasure of the heart bringeth forth good things:
  • and an evil man out of the evil treasure bringeth forth evil things.

  • they shall give account thereof in the day of judgment.

  • Pr. 4:23  “Keep thy heart with all diligence; for out of it are the issues of life.”

  • Whatever you put in will grow up and come out.

This is the law of reaping.

  • You reap what you sow.
  • Whatever you think on most becomes a part of you.
  • When you speak it, it is yours.
  • By thy words, thou shalt be justified or condemned.

Your words will deliver you, or they will condemn you.

  • Your words are what you believe in the most.
  • Confess sickness, and get sick because you believe in sickness more than you do the healing.
  • Confess failure, and get failure because you believe in failure more than you do victory through Jesus Christ.
  • And Confess the ministry of Christ, and you get the ministry of Christ
  • because you believe in the ministry of Christ more than you do the ministry of doubt and unbelief which are born in hell.
  • “Keep your heart with all diligence for out of it are the issues or controlling factors of your life.”
  • Pr. 23:7  “As he thinketh in his heart so is he.”

The Law of Confession-To Build Strength Through Proper Use Of Words 

Whatever you put in that heart is going to bear fruit.

  • It will someday grow up and become a part of your speech.
  • When it does, you have accepted that as your law.
  • So fill your heart with God’s Word.
  • Then God will come forth on your lips and deliver you in the area concerning your speech at that moment.
  • Whatever you believe in the most will come forth through your lips and control you.
  • So become God-possessed through reading, and studying, and doing God’s Word.
  • Then God will always be on your lips.
  • Then God will always be the shield around you through good and proper words.
  • And then the enemy cannot penetrate.

  • It will destroy you and all you ever want to be.

“Transgressors shall eat violence.”

  • Transgress with your lips, and you reap transgressions.

Financial setbacks sometimes come in this manner.

  • Defeat will be around if you sow words of negative content.

  • Whatever comes forth out of your spirit lives on.

We are dealing with the spirit world.

  • So whatever comes out of your spirit is spirit.

The Law of Confession

Confession is made unto salvation. 

  • And Confession produces salvation.
  • However, you have to believe it in your heart first.
  • If a person denies every day that he is saved, he will not grow very much in Jesus.
  • On the other hand, if he confesses that Jesus saved him because he accepted Him into his heart,
  • regardless of feeling, joy will flow; faith will rise, and deliverance will come more and more. 

The more you confess, the greater release you have.

  •  If you believe, you will have what you say.
  • This is the law of the Spirit. Base your belief in the Word statement.
  • Confess it until you get it.
  • (Mk. 11:23) “Consider the apostle and high priest of ours. ”

  • He will confess what you confess. Hallelujah!
