Summary: what’s acceptable & what’s not acceptable

  Study Tools

READING THIS TEXT HAS GIVEN ME A GREAT DEAL OF INSIGHT ABOUT TESTIMONY. I AM FULLY PURSUADED TO BELIEVE THAT WE CAME UP IN CHURCH BELIEVING THAT WHEN SOMEONE HAD GOTTEN UP AND SAID THAT THEY THANK GOD FOR THE ACTIVITIES OF THEIR LIMBS, THE FOOD ON THE TABLE, THE CLOTHES ON THEIR BACK WAS A TESTIMONY THAT WOULD GLORIFY THE FATHER. WHEN IN ACTUALITY IT WAS JUST A THANKS, NEVERTHELESS; WE WOULD GET OFF OF OUR FEET AND GIVE A STANDING OVATION AS IF THESE WERE WORDS OF AN OVERCOMER, LET TRUTH BE TOLD THESE WERE ONLY THINGS DONE IN THE POWER OF OUR LORD AND SAVIOR ACCORDING TO HIS GRACE & MERCY. HIS GRACE BEING UNMERITED FAVOR AND HIS MERCY IS GIVING YOU WHAT YOU DON’T DESERVE.

THE POWER & PURPOSE OF TESTIMONY

THE POWER - THE BLOOD OF CHRIST

THE PURPOSE - ABOUT CHRIST

THE POWER OF TESTIMONY IS DETERMINED OVER A PERIOD OF TIME BY WHICH GOD HAS YOU FORTH BY HIS BLOOD. THEREFORE,IT DOES NOT MATTERS WHAT YOU SAY GOD HAS DONE IF THERE IS NO FRUIT TO BEAR WITNESS OF THIS ACCOUNT.

THE PURPOSE OF TESTIMOY IS FOR ONE THING AND THAT IS THAT GOD IS GLORIFIED, BECAUSE IS THE CENTER OF ATTRACTION AND THE ONLY REASON WHY YOU ARE CAPABLE TO STAND BEFORE THE WORLD AND SAY GOD DELIVERED ME FROM:

1) A PARTICULAR PERSON

2) ANGER

3) DRUGS

4) SEX

5) MONEY

WHAT MAKE US OVERCOMERS

1) HOLY LIVES

2) FAITHFUL TESTIMONY

3) PATIENT SUFFERING

JOHN 10:10 DCLARES THAT THE DEVIL COMES TO KILL-STILL AND DESTROY

THE DEVIL CANNOT:

1)KILL WHAT GOD HAS PUT THE BLOOD OF HIS SON ON IT

2)STILL WHAT HE HAS SEALED WITH PURPOSE

3)DESTROY WHAT HE HAS CREATED

YOUR PAST EXPERIENCE SHOULD BE ENOUGH TO SUSTAIN YOU

WHEN THE SCRIPTURE SPOKE OF THEM OVERCOMING BY THEIR TESTIMONY JOHN WAS SPEAKING OF THEM WHO WERE IN HEAVEN AND HENCEFORTH GAVE A WARNING TO THOSE WHO WERE ON EARTH, SAYING THAT THE ONE WHO WAS ONCE IN HEAVEN TORMENTING THEM BEFORE THE FATHER IS NOW AMONGST US TO TRY TO DO THE SAME, WHAT KEEPS HIM AWAY FROM US IS THE PRESENCE OF GOD BECAUSE HE HATES THE PRESENCE OF GOD BUT IS WILLING TO TOLERATE HIS PRESENCE LONG ENOUGH TO GET ONE OF THE FAITHFUL CHILDREN OFF FOCUS. THE ACCUSER WILL COME IN YOUR TERITORY LOOKING AND ACTING LIKE YOU AND ACCUSE YOU OF WHAT YOU HAVE BEEN FORGIVING OF.

AS BELIEVERS IF WE ARE CONVICTED OF SIN WE HAVE A RESPONSIBILITY TO TO GO BEFORE GOD.

1)CONDEMN OURSELVES

2)COMMITT OUR CAUSE TO CHRIST AS OUR ADVOCATE

TESTIMONY-(GREEK)-MATURION-WHICH MEANS WITNESS OR EVIDENCE

TESTIFY-(GREEK)-TO BEAR WITNESS-TO WITNESS

WHAT IF I SUGGESTED TO YOU THAT YOUR TESTIMONY WOULD ONLY COME THROUGH TRAGEDY.

HOW LONG WILL YOU WAIT TO GLORIFY THE FATHER OF HEAVEN.
