Many Christians often profess that they have a testimony and then return to their way of life, prior to the incident to which they call a “testimony”. We must be careful of this because it is a tool given within our ministry to demonstrate a conversion of heart and souls for the Kingdom of God. Once God has revealed Himself to someone, that person will be forever changed in mind, body, and soul. A testimonial serves with the purpose of converting a heart and soul towards Divinity, and the Divine Laws of Love. When someone has encountered their testimonial event, there will be a change in heart and soul, that could not be denied by anyone that walks in its path. Such a soul that has been inspired by this Divine Event in this person’s life, will even touch the coldest of hearts, and even the hearts of those that are most distant from God, the Father of Creation (Devum, Yahweh, Jehovah). So, we must be mindful of what we call as a testimony. A testimony also serves the purpose of being a testimonial of God’s Existence on this Earth, while the Holy Spirit guards evil from overtaking it.
A born again spirit is what will tell us that we have undergone our testimonial. Often such events is to change from a way of life that was dishonoring God, the Father of Creation. It is that conviction that has been put within us, through the Holy Spirit that will tell us that God has spoken to us, and showed His Grace upon us with this event. It is through this that we know of the Omnipresence of God, and will have a humble and repentent heart. The Holy Spirit will prick us everytime we violate God’s Divine Laws of Love, give us courage to right the wrongs we commit to others both knowingly and unknowingly. He will take us onto life paths that are unorthodox to the ways of this world, and will show us His Grace in His Protection that we can carry on this testimony to covert more hearts for His Kingdom, and to spread the word of His Divine Laws of Love.
Do not misunderstand, we must be faithful in all things great and small in our lives, but if God is first and foremost in our lives, we can differentiate what is meant to be a testimonial and what is meant to be a part of our everyday lives, and the faith that we decided to follow. We should thank Him for His Graces and Mercies everyday; however, we must also be able to follow the Guidance of the Holy Spirit, to discern what is meant to be a testimonial to convert hearts and souls for the Kingdom of God. Scriptures says we should pray in the privacy of our rooms, as well as praise Him. If we call ourselves Christians, we should follow the example to which Jesus Christ (Yeshua, Yeshu Christu, Yeshuay) gave us through His Own Earthly Life, and Death on the Cross. I think a lot of Christians forget that. To be honest, it frustrates me that they do. But this is what the Holy Spirit tells me, and I am no one to judge another.
Giving thanks to God for our everyday lives, is meant to be in the privacy of our hearts and souls. While testimonials are tools given to us to help convert souls for God. I have had the privilege of hearing many testimonials, witnessing them, and even having many of my own within my short life. The following are testimonials that I have heard:
- People being saved from addictions
- Being saved from medical conditions to which all logic of science would have said that it was impossible
- Being protected at the time of persecution
- Justice for those that commit injustice against them, not by their own hand but by God alone as a reward for their faithfulness in forgiveness and faith in Him.
- A conversion of heart and soul from hearing the testimony of another person
- Being able to do and achieve things by being in the “right place at the right time” in order to carry out God’s Plan
We must remember, that we are responsible for whatever we say and do, if we call ourselves followers and believers in Christ Jesus. We must be mindful of how we represent ourselves, and even know to whom God’s Pearls of Wisdom should be revealed to, since we were given that privilege through our testimony. God rewards our faith, He knows is this world that is ruled by evil, that it is not an easy task. This is why He gives His Testimonial to those that He has the confidence that will uphold Him, and well represent Him. He does not define Himself by the ways of His Creation, therefore His Rewards and Gifts will not conform to the ways of this world. We must remember that. Evil will persecute those who hold the testimony that can convert heart. Evil will try to discredit them. This is what we should understand from all of the saints and prophets that walked before us. There are times where we will stand alone, never forget that. God’s People will not stand as a part of the majority…they will be the minority. This is why He says, few will enter the gates, though many or all are called. We must continue to stay strong despite what they world around may do. This is what Jesus Christ showed us, with the loyalty of 12 disciples, He was able to spread the Word of the Eternal Kingdom, to nations all over the world. Whatever is ordained by God, the Father of Creation is not what is accepted by the many…but the minority.
