Getting Set Free from Lies and Deceptions with Romans 10:9-10


Getting Set Free from Lies and Deceptions with Romans 10:9-10


Romans 10:9-10
9 That if thou shalt confess with thy mouth the Lord Jesus, and shalt believe in thine heart that God hath raised him from the dead, thou shalt be saved.
10 For with the heart man believeth unto righteousness; and with the mouth confession is made unto salvation.

The Book of Romans chapter 10, (verses 9 and 10) tell us that if you confess the Lord Jesus Christ (making Him your Lord and Savior) and believe in your heart God (the Father) has raised Him from the dead, you will be saved (from your sins and from Hell, the punishment on those who refuse to repent and refuse to turn to God). 

God put on my heart and showed me another application of Romans 10:9-10. It says, “That if thou shalt confess with thy mouth the Lord Jesus, and shalt believe in thine heart that God hath raised him from the dead, thou shalt be saved.” (Romans 10:9). If we confess aloud with our mouth what God’s Word says (such as a scripture verse) and believe it in our heart, this helps to set us free from lies. For instance, if you believe a lie that God does not truly care for you, tell God about it, and you can say something like, “Dear Father God, I give this lie to you. It is a lie and it is not true.” Then, read a scripture verse or part of the verse aloud that contradicts that lie. For instance, you could read aloud:

Isaiah 40:10-11
10 Behold, the Lord God will come with strong hand, and his arm shall rule for him: behold, his reward is with him, and his work before him.
11 He shall feed his flock like a shepherd: he shall gather the lambs with his arm, and carry them in his bosom, and shall gently lead those that are with young.

After reading this (or part of it) aloud, you could then say something like: “Dear Father, you are my shepherd. You love me and you are carrying me in your arms. It is a lie that you do not truly care for me. You love me. Thank you for your love and care for me.” Even if you do not feel the emotions, doing this will free you up and help you to combat the lie with the truth and be set free from the enemy and his lies. Making use of God’s Word is taking the Sword of the Spirit out of its sheath and using it to fight the enemy (see Ephesians 6 and Hebrews 4:12).

GOD spoke this word to me to write down on 10/18/15. I tested this with the test of the spirits found in 1 John 4:1-4. The following words in quotes are God’s words:

"Romans 10:9 and 10 is indeed speaking of the need to confess with your mouth that I am the LORD and it does indeed apply to the application I have shown you; confess with your mouth that I am the LORD, and also confess the truth with your mouth that you find in My Word, and believe it in your heart, and you certainly shall be saved from the lie, and you certainly shall be delivered, and I shall raise you up from all the lies, and you shall believe the truth. These are My words and I the LORD your God have spoken.”

Hebrews 4:12

12 For the word of God is quick, and powerful, and sharper than any twoedged sword, piercing even to the dividing asunder of soul and spirit, and of the joints and marrow, and is a discerner of the thoughts and intents of the heart.

Ephesians 6:16-18 (read all of Ephesians 6)

16 Above all, taking the shield of faith, wherewith ye shall be able to quench all the fiery darts of the wicked.

17 And take the helmet of salvation, and the sword of the Spirit, which is the word of God:


18 Praying always with all prayer and supplication in the Spirit, and watching thereunto with all perseverance and supplication for all saints;
