Confess Repent & Believe Leads To Forgiveness

Confess Repent & Believe Leads To Forgiveness

 

Acts 2; 38 “Repent,” Peter said to them, “and be baptized, each of you, in the name of Jesus Christ for the forgiveness of your sins, and you will receive the gift of the Holy Spirit 9  

  If we confess our sins, He is faithful and righteous to forgive us our sins and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness. One John;1;9

If you confess with your mouth, “Jesus is Lord,” and believe {pisteusēs} in your heart that God raised Him from the dead, you will be saved. 10 One believes [pisteuetai] with the heart, resulting in righteousness, and one confesses with the mouth, resulting in salvation.  Now the Scripture says, Everyone who believes [Pas Ho pisteuwn] {continue to believe in Christ atoning works} on Him will not be put to shame or {credit in eum non pudefiet meaning Latin Everyone who believes} Romans 10; 9-11

 

Repent

There are three Greek words for repentance, metamelomai, metanoeo, and  metanoia. Metamelomai means to change one mind, such as to produce regret or even remorse because of sin.   Metanoia means to change one  mind. Where metanoia means a change of mind and purpose and life, which remission of sin is promised.

Bullinger’s Dictionary two says metanoeo means, “to perceive afterwards; hence, to change one’s mind and purpose. This change is always for the better, and denotes a change of moral thought and reflection; not merely to repent of, nor to forsake sin, but to change one’s mind and apprehensions regarding it. Metanoeo denotes to reform, to have a genuine change of heart and life from worse to better. ”ÓÓ  

Wikipedia defines it a transformative change of heart; especially: a spiritual conversion. To repent is to forsake all other gods– and embrace Jesus Christ as your Lord and God. (Jesus allows no other gods before Him. Mounce’s Complete Expository Dictionary defines; “ÒÒ Both the noun and verb denote a radical, moral turn of the whole person from sin and to God. “ÒTo change one’s mind or about face. 

 Eastern Bible Dictionary defines; the tree Greek word, metamelomai, metanoeo, and metanoia as; RepentanceThere are three Greek words used in The New Testament to denote repentance. 

(1.) The verb metamelomai is used of a change of mind, such as to produce regret or even remorse on account of sin, but not necessarily a change of heart. This word is used with reference to the repentance of Judas (Matt. 27:3).

(2.) Metanoeo, meaning to change one’s mind and purpose, as the result of after knowledge. This verb, with (3.) the cognate noun metanoia, is used of true repentance, a change of mind, and purpose, and life, to which remission of sin is promised.

In short “Òto say the same thing”Ó and then “Òagree, admit, acknowledge, or agreeing with God that you have sinned or missed the mark.

John MacArthur defines it, to say the same thing about sin as God does; to acknowledge His perspective about sin. Expositor’s Bible Commentary wrote Those who confess their sins and condemn them are linked to God.

 Believer Commentary states, “Ò In order for us to walk day by day in fellowship with God and with our fellow believers, we must confess our sins: sins of commission, sins of omission, sins of thought, sins of act, secret sins, and public sins. We must drag them out into the open before God, call them by their names, take sides with God against them, and forsake them. We must drag them out into the open before God, call them by their names, take sides with God against them, and forsake them. Yes, true confession involves forsaking of sins”Ó: 

Matthew Henry The Christian religion is the religion of sinners, of such as have sinned, and in whom sin in some measure still dwells The Christian life is a life of continued repentance humiliation for and mortification of sin

Believe

The Greek word for believe is pisteusēs meaning to believe, or to entrust “Ò to have faith (in, upon, or with respect to, a person or thing); i.e., credit; by implication, to entrust (especially one’s spiritual well-being to Christ):—believe, commit (to trust), put in trust with. 

 

 

 Relating to Christ

  1. a strong and welcome conviction or belief that Jesus is the Messiah, through whom we obtain eternal salvation in the kingdom of God

 

2. the religious beliefs of Christians

3. belief with the predominate idea of trust (or confidence) whether in God or in Christ, springing from faith in the same
Fidelity, faithfulness

   

Creditur; πιστεύεται,  it is believed.  It is an impersonal verb, and so is the verb in the next clause. The introduction of a person is necessary in a version, and we may say,We believe; or, as thou is used in the preceding verse, it may be adopted h i.e., in order to attain righteousness; and with the mouth thou confesses unto salvation, i.e., in order but it is made known to man by confession. Turrettin’s remarks on this verse are much to the purpose. He says, that Paul loved antitheses, and that we are not to understand faith and confession as separated and applied only to the two things here mentioned, but ought to be viewed as connected, and that a similar instance is found in ch. 4:25, where Christ is said to have been delivered for our offences, and to have risen again for our justification; which means, that by his death and resurrection our offences are blotted out, and justification is obtained. In the same manner the import of what is here said is that by sincere faith and open confession we obtain justification and salvation.

In the NT one who trusts in God’s promises. One who is convinced that Jesus has been raised from the dead. 2b2 one who has become convinced that Jesus is the Messiah and author of salvation.

  An another meaning is: Pas Ho pisteuwn meaning “Ò  Everyone Believing,”Ó The Latin phase is credit in eum non pudefiet meaning whoever believe. In Short, not “ÒÒ Every Single Person Can Believe”Ó  KJV Bible Commentary penned Therefore, the call to salvation is to whoever will believe, whether Jew or Gentile The reason is that the same Lord over all is rich unto all that call upon him. The Lord God is rich in His attitude toward all sinners and ready to receive anyone who calls on Him for salvation.

The Voice concluded, “ÒSo if you believe deep in your heart that God raised Jesus from the pit of death and if you voice your allegiance by confessing the truth that “Ò Jesus is Lord,”Ó then you will be saved! Belief begins in the heart and leads to a life that’s right with God; confession departs from our lips and brings eternal salvation. Faith is not something we do. It is a response to what God has done already on our behalf, the response of a spirit restless in a fragmented world.”ÓÓ 

The scripture declares concerning believing in Christ “ÒThe message is near you, in your mouth and in your heart.”Ó

 Personal Observation

 

If you confess {homologeó] with your mouth, “ÒJesus is Lord,”Ó and believe {pisteusēs} in your heart that God raised Him from the dead, you will be saved. 10 One believes [pisteuetai ] with the heart, resulting in righteousness, and one confesses {homologeó} with the mouth, resulting in salvation.  Now the Scripture says, Everyone who believes [Pas Ho pisteuwn] {continue to believe in Christ atoning works}  on Him will not be put to shame or {credit in eum non pudefiet meaning Latin Everyone who

{believes}for there is no distinction between Jew and Greek, since the same Lord of all is rich to all who call on Him. 13 For everyone who calls on the name of the Lord will be saved.Romans 10; 9-14

 

Twice the words confess is mention in this passage Greek word is {homologeó} meaning you acknowledge that you are a sinner and you agree with God. Where missed the mark and fallen short of His glory? Three times the word believes appears in this passage. Twice the Greek words pisteuses meaning to believe, or to entrust “Ò to have faith in Where the word believes [Pas Ho pisteuwn] continue to believe in Christ atoning works or Latin words are credit in eum non pudefiet meaning Latin Everyone who believes Christ redemptive work on the cross. The passage continued on for there is no distinction between Jew and Greek, since the same Lord of all is rich to all who call on Him. For everyone who calls on the name of the Lord will be saved. Hence, one who repents {metanoeo} confesses {homologeó] and believes [Pas Ho pisteuwn] will not be disappointed 

For example Susan Denise Atkins was found guilty of seven murders. After holding Sharon Tate she pleading with Tex and Susan to spare her, and her eight-month baby, she uttered these words, ”Ó Look bitch, I don’t care about you. I don’t care if you’re going to have a baby or not. You’re going to die, and I don’t feel anything about it.” She felt no guilt in her mind Sharon look like store mannequin. 

In 1974 Jesus knocked her hardened, and she accepted Jesus as my personal Savior and Lord went was her bitter heart, and replace with a soft heart. According to Susan Christ assured her that in the depths of her soul that “Òold things had passed away, behold all things have become new,”Ó II Corinthians 5:17 

Susan Atkins died on September 24, 2009, and her last words were Amen Before she utter these words. The Lord is my shepherd; there is nothing I lack.He lets me lie down in green pastures leads me beside quiet waters. He renews my life; He leads me along the right pathsfor His name’s sake. Even when I go through the darkest valley,I fear no danger, for You are with me; Your rod and Your staff—they comfort me.You prepare a table before me in the presence of my enemies; You anoint my head with oil; my cup overflows. Only goodness and faithful love will pursue me all the days of my life, and I will dwell in the house of the Lord as long as I live. Mathew 3; 8 As prove when you repent of your sins and turned to God it would produce a fruit consistently with repentance. God love even murderer like Susan Akins and forgave her. While on earth she died in prison because she was responsible committing seven murders; however, in heaven the saints uttering a different story welcoming her into heaven and rejoicing along with the angels.
