Confession in Greek (homologes) means to agree with something. We must realized that as human beings we did not confer the "word sinner" on ourselves. This is because the ability to say whether or not one is a sinner is a sole prerogative of God.

As human beings we cannot determine who is a sinner, because we are also guilt of the very thing we accused people of. We may try to advise people of some behaviours, but we cannot determine whether or not that act is a sin, we don't have the capacity to do that.

When the word of God comes to us and say we are sinners, the wise thing to do is to agree with the word and find a saviour. We must as Saints agree that our sins have been taking away so we are no longer sinners and therefore there is no condemnation hanging on our neck. 1John 1:29, Romans 6:1-10, Romans 8:1-2.

Our sins were forgiven more than 2000 years, so what do we confess again?. All our sins were future sins. We were forgiven of our sins before we were born. 1 Corinthians 13:4-10

We were forgiven of our sins through Jesus baptism and his death. Our sins were washed and paid for by His baptism and his death. Matthew 3:13-15, John 3:1-6, 1John 5:6-8, Romans 6:2-8. In matters of our salvation, our works did not play any role. Ephessians 2:8, Romans 4:1-10.

We were forgiven completely for all the time. Jesus will never baptise and go to the cross again. Hebrews 10:10, 14-20. 1John 3:4-6, 9

We were forgiven in accordance with the riches of God's grace. Forgiveness of sin is the business of God and a gift to give. Galations 2:20-21
Titus 3:4-5.

Our sins were long gone. Hebrews 9:22. Jesus' sacrifice was the atomic bomb that did away with sin . Just like a "bee" the sting has been taken away.

God chooses to forget our sin. Isaiah 43:22-25, Psalm 103:1-12. God is love. Love keeps no record of wrong. Your heavenly Father is not a fault-finder. 1Corinthians 13:4-10

The Holy Spirit does not convict a born again of any sin. The law convicts the world of sin but the Holy Spirit convicts the believer of his righteousness. How could God convicts you of a sin He chooses not to remember. Isaiah 43:25.

When a born again confesses his sin, what it means is that he is putting himself under the law. If you are under the law, you are under curse. Mixing Gods grace with man's work is like mixing milk with poison. The result will not be good at all. 1 Samuel 6:1-21. God as a judge has cancelled our sins from the law.

Confession -to-be forgiven keeps us from God. When dealing with people, confession sins and seeking forgiveness may help heal a guilty conscience. But God doesn 't relate to us with human love.

Confessing -to- be- forgiven empowers sin. Instead of dealing with sin and releasing life, law based confession stires up sin and leads to death.

Confessing -to-be forgiven makes us sin-conscious, and not Christ -conscious. Every minute you spend dwelling on your sin is a minute wasted. You are not worthy? Get over yourself! Christ is worthy!

The grace of God is greater than your sin. Romans 5:12-21, Romans 7:6-10, Hebrews 8:13, John 6:40

In conclusion, when a believer confesses his or her sin, he is telling God Jesus could not take his or her sin away as recorded in John 1:29 so God must come himself to do it better.

Study the word with spiritual mind and avoid the fleshly thoughts. GOD BLESS YOU.
