Confess Me Before Men

Confess Me Before Men
To confess {Eng= to acknowledge one's belief or faith in; declare adherence to.}
To confess {Grk= to say the same thing}
To confess {Heb= to extend the hand (so as to reveal its contents)}

Mat 10:32-33 (KJV)
Whosoever therefore shall confess me before men,
him will I confess also before my Father which is in heaven.
{33} But whosoever shall deny me before men,
him will I also deny before my Father which is in heaven.

Luke 12:8-9 (KJV)
Also I say unto you, Whosoever shall confess me before men,
him shall the Son of man also confess before the angels of God:
{9} But he that denieth me before men
shall be denied before the angels of God.

Psa 119:46-48 (KJV)
I will speak of thy testimonies also before kings,
and will not be ashamed.
{47} And I will delight myself in thy commandments,
which I have loved.
{48} My hands also will I lift up unto thy commandments,
which I have loved;
and I will meditate in thy statutes.

Rom 10:8-11 (KJV)
But what saith it (ie.the Law of God)?
The word is nigh thee, even in thy mouth, and in thy heart:
that is, the word of faith, which we preach;
{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.
{11} For the scripture saith,
Whosoever believeth on him shall not be ashamed.

1 Tim 6:8-12 (KJV)
And having food and raiment let us be therewith content.
{9} But they that will be rich fall into temptation and a snare,
and into many foolish and hurtful lusts,
which drown men in destruction and perdition.
{10} For the love of money is the root of all evil:
which while some coveted after, they have erred from the faith,
and pierced themselves through with many sorrows.
{11} But thou, O man of God, flee these things;
and follow after righteousness, godliness, faith, love, patience, meekness.
{12} Fight the good fight of faith,
lay hold on eternal life, whereunto thou art also called,
and hast professed a good profession before many witnesses.

2 Tim 1:7-10 (KJV)
For God hath not given us the spirit of fear;
but of power, and of love, and of a sound mind.
{8} Be not thou therefore ashamed of the testimony of our Lord,
nor of me his prisoner:
but be thou partaker of the afflictions of the gospel
according to the power of God;
{9} Who hath saved us, and called us with an holy calling,
not according to our works,
but according to his own purpose and grace,
which was given us in Christ Jesus before the world began,
{10} But is now made manifest by the appearing of our Saviour Jesus Christ,
who hath abolished death,
and hath brought life and immortality to light through the gospel:

1 John 4:12-19 (KJV)
No man hath seen God at any time.
If we love one another, God dwelleth in us, and his love is perfected in us.
{13} Hereby know we that we dwell in him, and he in us,
because he hath given us of his Spirit.
{14} And we have seen and do testify
that the Father sent the Son to be the Saviour of the world.
{15} Whosoever shall confess that Jesus is the Son of God,
God dwelleth in him, and he in God.
{16} And we have known and believed the love that God hath to us.
God is love; and he that dwelleth in love dwelleth in God, and God in him.
{17} Herein is our love made perfect,
that we may have boldness in the day of judgment:
because as he is, so are we in this world.
{18} There is no fear in love; but perfect love casteth out fear:
because fear hath torment.
He that feareth is not made perfect in love.
{19} We love him, because he first loved us.

Then said he unto him, A certain man made a great supper, and bade many:
{17} And sent his servant at supper time to say to them that were bidden,
Come; for all things are now ready. {18} And they all with one consent began to make excuse.
The first said unto him, I have bought a piece of ground, and I must needs go and see it: I pray thee have me excused.
{19} And another said, I have bought five yoke of oxen, and I go to prove them: I pray thee have me excused.
{20} And another said, I have married a wife, and therefore I cannot come.
{21} So that servant came, and showed his lord these things.
Then the master of the house being angry said to his servant,
Go out quickly into the streets and lanes of the city,
and bring in hither the poor, and the maimed, and the halt, and the blind.
{22} And the servant said, Lord, it is done as thou hast commanded, and yet there is room.
{23} And the lord said unto the servant,
Go out into the highways and hedges, and compel them to come in, that my house may be filled.

{48} And ye are witnesses of these things.
{49} And, behold, I send the promise of my Father upon you:
but tarry ye in the city of Jerusalem, until ye be endued with power from on high.

(Psa 96:2-5 KJV)

{4} For the LORD is great, and greatly to be praised: he is to be feared above all gods.
{5} For all the gods of the nations are idols:
but the LORD made the heavens.
