Jesus Christ is the Apostle and High Priest of our confession. He serves as an intercessor, a legal advocate pleading our case before the throne of God (Heb. 3:1, Heb. 7:25, 1 Jn. 2:1). Confession is a legal term used two ways in scripture. There is the confession of sin and a confession as to what God's word says.
Psalm 8:2 - Out of the mouth of babes and nursing infants You have ordained strength, Because of Your enemies, That You may silence the enemy and the avenger. NKJV
The Hebrew is such a descriptive language that there is often no one English word that can capture the depth of meaning. For example, in Hebrew the word translated "mouth" is also translated as commandment, talk, speech, and edge as in edge of the sword (1 Sam. 15:8). It reminds me of Hebrews 4:12 that says the word of God is quick and powerful sharper than any two edged sword.
"Babe" means infant or immature Christian. The "nursing infants" refers to an infant who drinks milk and Hebrews 5:13 teaches us that everyone who partakes of milk is unskilled in the word of righteousness. "Ordained" means to sit down, take counsel together and establish a foundation. "Strength" means power and boldness. "Silence" means to still, cease, put or take away "the enemy" which is defined as the adversary, oppression, distress or trouble. Psalm 8:2 is truly a powerful and insightful scripture when we put it all together. It means:
Out of the mouth of even the most immature, the Lord has laid a foundation with His word that empowers them to use their mouth like a weapon to cause oppression, distresses, injustices and any other adversary of their soul to cease and desist its onslaught.
Jesus is the Apostle and High Priest of our confession (Heb. 3:1). Our confession is VERY IMPORTANT. He needs it to do His job which is to be our Advocate, our legal counsel (1 John 2:1), our paraklete, our intercessor.
If we partake of His blood, confess and forsake our sin, then we are made righteous which empowers us to come boldly before His throne of grace to receive mercy and find grace to help in our time of need (Rev. 12:11, Rom. 10:8-10, Heb. 4:16). That is how we overcome! It is by the "word of our testimony."
First, we confess our sin. Second, we need to know His word that we might confess it, putting our faith, our confidence, our trust in His word, His ability, His faithfulness and His ability to perform that which He has promised (Rom. 4:21).
What do you have need of? What is the enemy of your soul; sickness, poverty, depression, oppression, or false accusers? Then discover what God's word says and meditate upon it until that promise moves from your head to your heart and watch what God does upon your behalf.
God framed this world (Heb. 11:3) by His word and we can frame ours as well. Remember, Jesus was more than a carpenter. If we need help framing our world, He can help!
