Lesson 13

The Good Confession Authorized By God

1. God confessed and revealed the fact that Jesus was the Son of God, saying, "This (Jesus) is my ______ ______, in whom I am well pleased" (Mat. 3:17; 17:5).

2. On two different occasions, Peter confessd before Jesus and other apostles saying, "Thou (Jesus) are the ________, the _____ of the living ______" (Mat. 16:16), "We believe and are ______ that thou (Jesus) art that _______, the ______ of the ________ God" (John 6:69).

3. God has exalted Jesus to be the King of kings and the Lord of lords, and has decreed that "at the name of Jesus every knee should bow, of things in heaven, and things in earth, and things under the earth; and that every _______ should _________ that Jesus Christ is ______..." (Philppians 2:9-11; 1 Tim. 6:15).

4. One must first hear and believe the Gospel of Christ before he could confess Jesus Christ to be the Son of God. "How then shall they _____ on him (Jesus) in whom they have not ________? and how shall they ________ in him of whom they have not ______? and how shall they ______ without a preacher?" (Rom. 10:14).

5. The confession of Jesus Christ as the Son of God is essential for man's salvation. Jesus says, "Whosoever therefore shall ________ me before men, him will I ________ also before my Father which is in heaven. But whosoever shall ______ me before men, him will I also ______ before my Father which is in heaven" (Mat.10:32-33).

6. The purpose of baptism is for the remission of sins (Acts 22:16), and the confession of Jesus is a prerequisite of baptism. "Then Philip opened his mouth, ...and preached unto him (the Ethiopian eunuch) Jesus. And as they went on their way, they came unto a certain water: and the eunuch said, See, here is water; what doth _______ me to be _________? And Philip said, If thou _________ with all thine heart, thou mayest. And he answered and _______, I believe that Jesus Christ is the _____ of _____...; and he baptized him" (Acts 8:35-38).

Conclusion: Men will be lost if they refuse to confess Jesus before men (Mat.10:32-33). "Nevertheless among the chief rulers also many ________ on him (Jesus); but because of the Pharisees they did not ___________ him, lest they should be put out of the synagogue: For they loved the praise of _______ more than the praise of ______" (John 12:42-43).
