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.
Though many may dismiss Him as a mere Man, however, for a Man who’s life and death has endured for thousands of years, and has touched every single corner of the earth, with millions of followers, even after His Earthly Death thousands of years later, where His Teachings have only professes selflessness, and to not value the materialism of this world, and to understand that there is a Higher Being, whose ways are beyond the human mind, soul, and heart to completely comprehend….one can not help to take note (whether it be out of reverence or out of hatred) of His Divinity. As the Son of God, He is Omnipresent, and shows humanity His Existence….God’s Existence through the mysteries of moments we see in our earthly lives.
This is why, when we believe in the Existence of Divinity from a Higher Source, we will begin to experience things that are from a Higher Source. We begin to see that the things that we can see, hear, smell, taste, and touch with our human eyes, ears, nose, tongue, and skin, will have a 6th dimension….a yearning and feeling from the soul. Such a yearning and feeling is not something that we are born with, or something that can be earned through earthly acts or deeds. It is a gift from Divinity, Himself. It is what the Son of God, Jesus Christ, showed on the Cross at Calvary. To have a supernatural understanding and strength to give up one’s earthly life, for the sake of believing beyond the human heart and mind, in the Unconditional Love that God, the Father of Creation, offers. Yeshua, Yeshuay, Yeshu Christu, Jesus Christ…the names that He has adopted through out the world, for those that have found the truth of this Unconditional Love that God, the Father of Creation offers, will ring in the minds and hearts of those that have found this truth, and uphold it at all costs.
Those that have found this truth, have been given the gift from Divinity, which is the gift o faith. The conviction that comes with the truth, will be able to discernment what comes from Divinity and what does not. And because this truth has been planted deep within such a soul, they will understand the purity of God, the Father, and will not tolerate or entertain the Deception of Evil, or the impurity that it brings through the earth and its ways. Even evil itself, will be attracted by the purity that God, the Father of Creation, brings to such a soul. In reality, it yearns for that purity for itself. Such souls have recognized the Omnipresence of God, and understand the meaning, that we must be faithful, even in the smallest of things in their earthly lives, even in the things done in secret. He sees it all, all things great and small. He sees the innermost thoughts of every heart and soul. He sees the faithfulness of each one, not just what is done on the outside.
The Son of God, Jesus Christ (Yeshu Christu, Yeshuay, Yeshua) walked this earth to show humanity what it takes to gain entrance into the Eternal Paradise. In being faithful in all within our lives on this earth. He expects Humanity to go through trials and tribulations. However, those that have understood the Omnipresence of God, know that His Authority to be ruler over one’s soul, will mean that there will be a constant battle between the sinful human nature (that we saw in the Garden of Eden) and the divinely inspired soul. We must not become complacent in our Walks towards the Eternal Kingdom of God; this battle should constantly be there due to 2 reasons:
- We can not deny what we are. We are human beings, who’s nature was tarnished in the Garden of Eden by falling for the temptation of the Devil, with the fall of Adam and Eve. As humanity, we will always have that temptation to fall to Satan and his ways from that moment forward. Evil will try to keep us out of the Grace of God, as long as we breathe on this earth.
- However, those that have found the truth of the Death on the Cross by Jesus Christ (Yeshu Christu, Yeshua, Yeshuay) has been given the gift of faith, and because God saw something worthy enough within such a soul, He will fight for that soul, against evil’s temptations.
So this battle is there. When we no longer have this battle that means that evil has taken over. Yes, even in our moments of complacency, we must remember, that God brings trials to bring us to the next level, and if we do not see this very fact, and not overcome that trial through faith, then evil has taken over even that grace. There will be a time where God will leave us, people often forget that. He is everywhere and in everything. Satan is not. Remember that. The Omnipresence of God, is what guides such souls, and will see victory even in moments of what appears to be trials and suffering the souls that are not inspired by Divinity.
Remember, every soul that has taken the path towards the Eternal Kingdom, has a life that is full of earthly trials. God, wants true believers, not those that half hearted twoards Him because He knows what He can offer. Even Satan knows what God, the Father of Creation can offer, which is why satan entices with earthly pleasures, and not eternal pleasures. Everything good, requires investment of the soul, without any strings attached; just loyalty to its goodness.
For those of us given a testimony, those were given to us as a tool to use within our ministry and as a rememberance to even ourselves, about the Existence of God, the Father of Creation. It serves as a tool, to show others going through similar situations about God’s willingness to come to our aid or to come into our lives, as long as we surrender to His Will and His Ways. God is so pure, that He can not have any thing that is bound to the ways of this world, because He says that His Ways are beyond those that are found here on Earth; they abide to ways of Selfless Love, Nonviolence, and Mercy. Such ways are not self gaining, but in service to others.
Testimonies are evidence in someone’s life, that serve as examples of God’s Existence on this earth. Such testimonies are granted to anyone, not just those that are walking in His Ways already, but to anyone that God has the hope of changing in heart, mind, body, and soul.
When looking back at my own testimony, I often wondered about why did it need to happen? Or why did it have to happen the way it did? I think a lot of people feel that way, when they are going through what they/we all later on come to find out is for the purpose of our testimony. I look back now, and I know that I was only able to get through what I had, because of God alone. There was no way I could have overcome that with any human strength, or by any measures of my own, or my family’s. This was the first time, I personally started to fast and pray in my life, though being born and raised a Christian I truly do believe that some things are predestined to happen, to a person. And I also believe what Mother Teresa had said because of this:
God entrusts those who He believes will uphold His Ways, to the point of feeling convicted in showing others of His Unconditionally Loving Ways. What we must be vigilant to is how evil will use our best of intentions, to mocking and even distorting the purpose of us sharing our testimonies. The people who were a part of our testimonies, in an adverse way, may not want to admit to their ways, and accuse you of being vengeful, in order to prevent you from sharing your testimony to help others out. God still tells you to share your testimony…because you never know who you can save through it, and that is the most important in all this. God, also says that many may just outright not want to hear or read it for the fear of knowing what they feared the most, that there is a God, who hears and sees all. God, says, this may save others too…so we should go on and share it, and it will be in their hands whether they decide to hear it for the testimony that it is.
We should always put God and firstmost in our lives Evil will try to distort this in so many ways. In the end God, knows that because His Children denied binding and shackling themselves to the ways of this world that they will be considered the LEAST of this world. This is what the prophets and servants in times past have shown us, and this is what Jesus Christ, His Son, showed us as He roamed this Earth, and died on the Cross at Calvary. The Holy Spirit guides such souls that carries the Testimony that God had hand picked for them. It is up to us who were given the testimony to chose whether or not to use it for His Work for the Eternal Kingdom or not.
So with that said, it has been awhile since I have shared my testimony, so please have a look at the following links to see my testimony. May it bless you the way it has me, in having some insight to the ways of God, the Father’s, Kingdom. The links below are the links to my testimony:
May we all continue the good fight, and know of God’s Endless Mercy and Unconditional Love. Take up your Cross, just as Jesus Christ did, on the Cross at Calvary, as the Son of God, that roamed this earth. Though belonging to the Highest of all Courts, He took on the earthly punishment of a criminal, though not comitting any crime, and suffered the death of one. He lived by the means of a pauper, though being the King of Kings, and Lord of Lords….we become the cornerstone when we are considered the last.
There comes a time where we all have exhausted all human logic, and we realize the limitations of it. No matter what spiritual path one follows this is the conclusion that those on it, come to. To deny the presence of a Higher Force, would put one at the mercy of the restricted parameters of human logic, and to only see what is on the surface in this thing that we call “life”. This will make us miss out even the smallest things in life. Sometimes the things considered as the simplest things, can reveal the most about ourselves. We see the power of the pure love we see in the innocence of children and animals. We see this in the beauty of nature’s flowers, trees, bodies of water, and even in songs and stories.
It is so easy for one to get so lost, to the point that even the simplest things in life, that are the most powerful in witnessing to the presence of a Higher Force, to which I call as “God”, will lose its luster. When we begin to see this in our lives, it is very important to reset ourselves, within our spiritual journeys, in setting ourselves back to the path towards finding the knowledge of the Higher Force, to which I, again, call God (Devum, Jehovah, Yahweh).
In fact, the more we see the beauty in the smallest things in life, the further we get in our spiritual journeys. Once someone has chosen to follow or pursue a spiritual journey, that yearning will never leave….because even that urging was inspired by a Higher Force for one to pursue and follow. True, one can lose their way or deviate for a moment, but once called one will always find their way back. God calls such hearts, and like any father, He will pursue to find you, and bring you back home. It is up to us to follow Him, when He finds us again.
I think the hardest thing for any person, once they have chosen to pursue a spiritual journey, is they begin to see things for its face value, and there is a discernment that enters within a soul. Your soul is not at peace if it goes against the ways of this path, no matter how much the human body wants to. As souls that decide to follow the path to spiritual enlightenment, it is important to take on the reproof of the Higher Force (God, Devum, Jehovah, Yahweh) in order to find the ways of the Eternal Paradise. The more we do, the closer we get on our spiritual journeys.
We must remember that no matter how far we may have roamed off of the path, once someone is called to seek the Kingdom of God, and He has revealed the Ways to His Kingdom to you, God, will always nudge the Holy Spirit to nudge you to come back. And those that have once walked in the presence of the Holy Spirit and God, the Father, will see the difference in walking towards the Kingdom, and walking away from the path to the Eternal Kingdom. I, personally, have seen this in my life. As human beings, our biggest flaws are pride and complacency. As Christians, it is so easy for us to get so comfortable in our spiritual lives, because things in our lives are going really well, without any trials or hardships. These are the times that Satan and his demons find as the most opportune times to strike against God’s Children. And remember, Satan and his demons can not do anything to you without God’s permission. These trials are brought into our lives for different reasons on each side. As we look to the Book of Job, Satan wanted to prove God wrong by saying that Job’s Faithfulness is only in his good times in his life. Job was very prosperous in the earthly sense. God allowed the test, to show His Confidence in Job’s Faithfulness, by knowing the purity of his heart.
What we must remember as servants of God, is that God is faithful to His Children, and never give up on them. He sees what no human eye sees, what no human ear hears, what no human can smell, taste and feel…he knows the purity of one’s heart and soul. At the same time, God knows the weakness of the human heart and mind. This is why He asks us to seek the Kingdom of God, through the Guidance of the Holy Spirit. This is one way that He knows He can still save a soul that has been lost to the world and its ways, because once He has called, He gives us the choice to come back, through the wooing of the Holy Spirit. It does require prayer and meditation to God the Father of Creation, and allowing your soul and heart to dwell and depend on the Presence of the Holy Spirit. This is what Jesus Christ was able to reestablish with His Death on the Cross. To create a bridge between the earthly and spiritual heavenly realms. As our Shepard, Jesus Christ, guided us and showed us what is expected in the earthly sense, by God the Father of Creation. Prayer is the biggest part of this. Even in moments of the hustle and bustle of this world, trials in the worldly sense, and even in the silence of our rooms….we are expected to go to our prayer closets, and come into the presence of the Holy Spirit. This is what Jesus Christ showed us in His Life and Death.
God gives us ample time and opportunity to come back to Him…till the very last breath in our earthly bodies. He sees the purity of the hearts that seek Him, and He lets them know that He sees their purity in their love for Him, and His Kingdom’s Ways. These people are constantly confessing to the ways that they fall short to the ways of His Kingdom. These people are devoid of pride in any way. They are also not swayed by the ways of this world. At the same time, God also does expect us to go astray, but He anticipates those that are pure in heart to come back and confess to Him. He gives us this choice everyday. He does not want people who feel entitled or does not force anyone to follow His Kingdom’s Ways, but wants those that CHOOSE to do so…and these are ways of SELFLESS, UNCONDITIONAL LOVE, NONVIOLENCE, and FORGIVENESS.
For me, when I first began my walk almost 20 years ago, I thought that it would be very hard to get to this point in my spiritual life. I have been through many trials, and have witnessed many injustices….I have seen how people have seen my life and say God is not in my life because of the many trial that I have endured in the earthly sense. But I have never felt more of God’s Presence in my Life for the very same reason that people say that they feel He is not. And it is through these trials, that we break away from the ways of this World, and follow the ways to His Eternal Kingdom, which are the ways that I have listed above in CAPITAL LETTERS. We are different because of the wisdom of what God reveals to us through earthly trials, that make us stand out in this world, that make us different. God sees the transformation of the heart, that occurs in these times….the Refiner’s Fire that His Putting our human hearts through. Remember a prosperous earthly life, is not equivalent to a prosperous spiritual life If God says His Ways are not of this world, but are beyond them, that means His Ways do not conform to the ways of this world….but what He had shown us through His Son, Jesus Christ, in the earthly sense. A life that is inspired by God, the Father of Creation will have their words and actions match each other…not contrary to them.
If we look at any person that was considered devotee to the Kingdom of God, or are considered holy or are prophets….they did not have a prosperous earthly life, but many trials in their earthly life; or did not see the importance of earthly riches. God gave his strongest trials to those that He knew and saw that understood the ways of His Son, and why He died on the Cross at Calvary.
Through the example of His Son, Jesus Christ, God has given to us the spiritual tools that are needed to resist Satan and his demons, and to discern the deception of evil. What are these?
Take a look:
The Armor of God
A true understanding of these spiritual tools comes from a life full of earthly anguish and battles of the human heart and mind, and a soul that has had the Holy Spirit planted within it. This is so important to understand because God says His Ways are not of the world’s ways, but are beyond them. Jesus Christ showed us this through His Earthly Life and Death on the Cross, as the the Son of God. As a result, the Holy Bible has told us through many Scriptures, that God’s Faithful will suffer in the earthly sense, so that we die of the ways of this world, and detach ourselves from valuing them, and finding God’s Divine Laws of Love (ways of Unconditional Love, Mercy and Nonviolence) in the process of this earthly suffering, where such ways are unknown to the world. These tools are what Jesus Christ showed us, personally, while He roamed this earth, in how they can combat evil and its ways of deception from God’s Divine Love, a love that we were meant and created to inherit.
We are to become broken vessels, in order to refine the souls within, to detach ourselves from the world and its ways. Can a soul take within it a home, care, money, clothes, toys, technology, accomplishments, reputations? NO. It is the flesh that made mankind to sin, on that day in the Garden of Eden, when the Satan as the serpant tempted Adam and Eve. God, the Father of Creation, gave us a soul and a mind to overthink and overfeel the demands of the human body. Satan and his demons can only control what it can manipulate with the human body, in order to mislead the soul that God, the Father of Creation, gave us to guard, that is within. It is these spiritual tools that Jesus Christ, as the Son of God, that keep us in tune with what God, the Father dictates through His Divine Laws of Love, which are the ways to His Eternal Kingdom. It is what keeps such a soul that is bound towards His Eternal Kingdom, inline with God and His Ways. Satan and his demons will try to make you feel like an outcast you, and make you feel all alone for not following the world and its way, because you are leaving their jurisdiction in being able to control you off of the path towards the Eternal Kingdom.
Jesus Christ, as the Son of God, suffered in His Earthly Life and Death on the Cross, for the sake of God’s Love for Humanity. He did it to show us that He understands what we go through, while we roam this earth. He did it so that He can show us how to deal with the arrows of the evil one and his helpers, and to reconnect humanity to their direct link to God, the Father of Creation, which was once there, in the initial days of Adam and Eve. God never leaves His People clueless, or in the dark of His Ways. It is through the use of these spiritual tools that Jesus Christ, His Son, left humanity, that we are able to see them. It is through the guidance of the Holy Spirit, that they will know of them, and will have a window to God’s Eternal Wisdom. It is not a physical war that we, as humanity are in, it is a spiritual one. That is what controls the physical. If humanity values and is bound to the ways of this world, a world that God, the Father of Creation says His Ways are not a part of….a world to which His Son, Jesus Christ has shown a way of life that He, Himself did not conform to….this is what results in crimes against humanity that we see today…..world hunger, war, genocide, racial bias, etc. It is only through spiritual strength…not human strength, that we can achieve this….and we need to tap into the spiritual tools that Jesus Christ (Yeshuay, Yeshu Christu, Devum) left us, in His Life Example, and Death on the Cross, at Calvary.
