Testimony What God does? What the devil does?

Apostle Tracey Robinson, 2022 All Rights Reserved

Testimony defined as:
·         Evidence or proof provided by the existence or appearance of something.
·         Born witness to the power of these truths
·         Having to do with the believer’s personal experience
·         Testimony is the witness to the rights of God denied and refused on earth
·         Testimony’s centers in and points to Christ
·         The statement of the testimony of Jesus is the spirit of prophecy
·         First hand authentication of a fact
·         An outward sign of the Gospel being born in you, in your time of divinely appointed
·         Testimony begins with the change that is taking place in you first, not “stuff” being given to you.
·         Jesus Christ is your testimony!
·         Jesus Christ is the Spirit of Prophecy being born in you and you testify of it.
Revelation 19:10 states that “for the testimony of Jesus is the spirit of prophecy”.
·         As a new creature you/we become witness to the testimony of Jesus being the spirit of prophecy in your new life. This is a testimony!
·         One who bears witness of His death through the awareness of the fact that you need a Savior through what you have seen, heard, and knows about Salvation.
·         A witness to the life and actions testified to the worth and effect of faith, and whose faith received witness in the Word (in scripture).                                                                                                            1 Peter 5:1 The elders which are among you I exhort, who am also an elder, and witness of the sufferings of Christ, and also a partaker of the glory that shall be revealed:
·         You are a witness bearer with a spiritual reputation!
3 John 12 Demetrius hath good report of all men, and of the truth itself: yea, and we also bear record; and ye know that our record is true.
·         Your testimony should and is of the works of Christ in you and not of your materialist possessions and wealth as it concerns Christ in you and for you.
·         The Lord knows our need before we ask of Him! St Matthew 6:8
 
What God does?
·         God has taken the foolishness of preaching the Gospel of Jesus Christ to the “human wisdom” of the spirit Man to give him knowledge of knowing that he is in sin and awareness with a reason to have to choose: God or the devil over his life.
·         Christ Jesus is the power of God and the Wisdom of God in your calling in Him. This is what saves you by hearing and believing through the foolishness of preaching the Gospel to your human weakness.
1 Corinthians 1:24 But unto them which are called, both Jews and Greeks, Christ the power of God, and the wisdom of God.
·         We don’t give time to tell the whole story of the battles over our soul. But this is really what the Church assembling should be like! The testimony of Christ Jesus and His victory over your life (soul).
·         We don’t usually have time to tell all of who is conquering, who is winning, who has the leverage this day over our life (soul).
·         We don’t take the time out to minister what fruit is being manifested? What fruit is working on my behalf in this battle? This is ministry that part of equipping the Saints for the perfecting of the Saints; for their work of the ministry in the body; and for their edifying of the Body of Christ that will form the whole body with Christ as the Head.
·         What work of my flesh was losing, dying, and surrendering? You do this evaluation because it is your testimony!
·         Our services should be made up of testimony then the word, then the praise, then the worship, and repeat the process.
·         People will come to hear the victory of the Church; it’s antidote to sin and solution to keeping you freed from sin, its rudiments, consequences, and penalties.
·         That’s the Gospel for the House. The Word of God revealed in our lives.
·         The victory of the Word in and over our lives. Other than this what more should be going on in the House of God?
·         Our testimony will draw sinners, backsliders, and transgressors.
·         Our testimony will reveal the Church and bring the Church to sit on the hilltop to shine like the Son as you demonstrate the testimony of Jesus Christ as now being your life.
·         You become a portrait of faith enclosed in the “full spiritual armor of God”.
Ephesians 6:11-18 is you the spiritual soldier fully equipped to stand and let God fight.
·         There is no right or wrong testimony! There is no scripted testimony!
·         Your testimony is your proof and evidence of your deliverance. Nobody can tell it like you can!
·         Your testimony is your proof and evidence of your spiritual lesson(s) learned through your physical/natural experiences that glorify the Spirit of God, and have made you free from the world, your flesh, and the devil.
·         The Spirit and power of your testimony will keep you strong in word, deed, action, and thought.
·         The Spirit and power of your testimony is a witness to help others that are hearing or will hear to help them to recover, renew, restore, etc. Are you willing to help others come through their bondage of sin?
Learning to rejoice in the spreading of the Gospel in spirit and in truth will always be the victor over your life.
Satan is a defeated foe!
 
What the devil does?
·         Satan known also as the devil job is to kill you, steal and rob you, and soon to destroy you and your life in Christ. St John 10:10 tell us so.
·         Satan works through and in the flesh. Your flesh is his kingdom, his domain. He is governed in the works of the flesh found in Galatians 5:19-21 and such like.
·         Satan’s job is to deceive you and cause you to deceive others through the same tactics and methods that he used on you.
·         Ignorance is the number one enemy of the soul of Man! Satan uses it as his top gun in persuading you to reject God and His word by choosing to understand it according to your human reasoning and your human faith and trust in your own abilities.
Hosea 4:6 My people are destroyed for lack of knowledge: because thou hast rejected knowledge, I will also reject thee, that thou shalt be no priest to me: seeing thou hast forgotten the law of thy God, I will also forget thy children.
·         Satan’s job is to keep you from perceiving the knowledge of God in your soul and spirit through the body’s lust, habits, practices, desires, and sensual appetites that will keep your soul is bondage, deaf, and asleep to the truth of God. Never awakening from the awareness of your sin.
·         Satan blinds the believers to believing that God will use them, bless them with temporal stuff, and be pleased with them in their shallowness.
·         Satan uses man from the flesh realm to deceive others in his way of thinking and doing and calling it God. Satan gives delusions of God’s way.
·         When Satan is blessing as we say we reject the truth of God in His Word. This is where all believers need to really evaluate your blessings! Is this from God? Or is this from that counterfeiter that wants to be God over me?
·         Satan’s blessings come with a tweeting of God’s Word and a lie in any form told to get something that you crave for, but is not really a need.
2 Corinthians 11:14-15 14 And no marvel; for Satan himself is transformed into an angel of light. 15 Therefore it is no great thing if his ministers also be transformed as the ministers of righteousness; whose end shall be according to their works.
·         There is no great deal of shame when Satan fool you and trip you up by causing you to leave the presence of God; backslide; transgress because this is his job.
·         But God has a word that will bring you out and back into His fold if you choose to accept it along with its prescribed methods and measures.
·         REPENT! For the Kingdom of God is at hand when you hear His voice harden not your heart.
Satan and his works can be wrapped up in a nutshell: he is a deceiver! He is a fallen, unemployed cherubim that seeks to find destruction wherever he can against the Will of God. He will always start with God’s creation of Man.
