Confession   Luke 12:6  Are not five sparrows sold for two farthings, and not one of them is forgotten before God?
Luke 12:7  But even the very hairs of your head are all numbered. Fear not therefore: ye are of more value than many sparrows.

Do not fear the Pharisees or men of power, but fear God who shall bring everything to His light of truth to be examined. God is concerned for all life, it is precious to him; including the lowly sparrows. How much more are you loved and known of God who made you for his fellowship and glory? He even knows the number of hairs on your head. What then? We respond with intimate words of love to the one who knows us so well. We tell Him of our love and worship of him. We cannot fool God.

Luke 12:8  Also I say unto you, Whosoever shall confess me before men, him shall the Son of man also confess before the angels of God:  

I confess that the Lord Jesus Christ is God's Son, sent to redeem me from satan's bondage. Through him I am become an adopted son of God with all the rights and privileges. The LORD God is my Father, my daddy who loves me and wants me to come to him. Jesus is our savior who acknowledges us before the Father in the presence of the angel witnesses.  

Mat 16:19  And I will give unto thee the keys of the kingdom of heaven: and whatsoever thou shalt bind on earth shall be bound in heaven: and whatsoever thou shalt loose on earth shall be loosed in heaven.  

We confess Jesus here, before men and Jesus confesses us to the Father, before angel witnesses.  

Rom 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.
Rom 10:10  For with the heart man believeth unto righteousness; and with the mouth confession is made unto salvation.
Rom 10:11  For the scripture saith, Whosoever believeth on him shall not be ashamed.

Luke 12:9  But he that denieth me before men shall be denied before the angels of God.  

Do not deny Jesus even if it is your feelings at the moment. He is your hope and way to eternal life with the Father. Jesus has grace to forgive you if you have spoken against him. The Pharisees could repent and be forgiven after being convicted by God through His Spirit. Saul of Tarsus, later called the apostle Paul is an example of a repentant Pharisee, who was convicted of God, repented and was received by the Lord Jesus Christ.  

Luke 12:10  And whosoever shall speak a word against the Son of man, it shall be forgiven him: but unto him that blasphemeth against the Holy Ghost it shall not be forgiven.  

This is called blaspheming the Holy Spirit.  

Mark 3:29  But he that shall blaspheme against the Holy Ghost hath never forgiveness, but is in danger of eternal damnation:
Mark 3:30  Because they said, He hath an unclean spirit.

For example saying that the power that Jesus had was of the devil. Refusing the conviction of the Holy Spirit, which leads you to repentance and the forgiveness of Christ Jesus. No Holy Spirit conviction means no repentance and a heart hardened towards God's only way to be forgiven. You cannot be forgiven if you ignore or reject the Spirit of God. Come to Jesus and become a child of God, what an awesome miracle this is.  

2 Pet 3:9  The Lord is not slack concerning his promise, as some men count slackness; but is longsuffering to us-ward, not willing that any should perish, but that all should come to repentance.
