I believe The Lord Jesus Christ is God, The Son of God, and The Messiah as clearly taught in the Bible. The stakes are too high to be wrong about this.
The great confession! You are right! There is too much at stake.
The Spirit of God (Jesus) is found in your heart. The heart should be consulted to validate and confirm what is written. God works and interacts in the believers heart.
“FOR THIS IS THE COVENANT THAT I WILL MAKE WITH THE HOUSE OF ISRAEL AFTER THOSE DAYS, SAYS THE LORD: I WILL PUT MY LAWS INTO THEIR MINDS, AND I WILL WRITE THEM ON THEIR HEARTS. AND I WILL BE THEIR GOD, AND THEY SHALL BE MY PEOPLE.”
