The Testimony Is This

The Testimony  Is This

Court cases  review all sorts  of testimonies.     Some of them can be trusted  —  others not.     All people are sinners,  so it’s only discerning  to be careful  in believing  what mere people say.     Every jury  must examine  all the details  and evidence  in a case  to determine  which is the true  “testimony”.

God’s  “testimony” is given  to us  in the whole Bible  —  the declared  eternal word  of God Almighty.     It has proven itself  to be true  and trustworthy,  through all the fulfilled prophecies,  that were written over thousands  of years.     We also need  to examine  God’s  “testimony”  to come  to a knowledge  of the truth.

Studying  God’s word  (God’s testimony)  teaches us  the truths  of God  —  and leads us  to a true faith.     Therefore,  1 John 5:10-12  says,

The one  who believes  in the Son  of God  has the testimony  in himself;  the one  who does not believe God  has made Him  a liar,  because  he has not believed  in the testimony  that God  has given  concerning  His Son.     And the testimony  is this,  that God  has given us  eternal life,  and this life is  in His Son.     He  who has the Son  has the life;  he who does not have the Son  of God  does not have  the life.

When we study  God’s  “testimony”  in the Bible,  we see  and are repeatedly assured  “that God  has given us eternal life,  and this life is  in His Son”.     “Given”  is the key word.     Nobody can earn  “eternal life”.     It is the gift  of God  that has been “given”  to us  “in His Son”.

Without accepting  the gift  of forgiveness  through Jesus,  we do  “not have  the life”.     We accept  God’s gift  as we “believe” God’s full  “testimony”  in the Bible.

Rejoicing  in our salvation  as found  in God’s  “testimony”,  we say,  “Hallelujah!     LORD,  Your word is truth!”

Love,
Margaret
