The Testimony

The Testimony

In listening  to witnesses  during a trial  or some other sort of human circumstances,  one begins to realize  whether or not the truth is being told.     Untruthful witnesses will have conflicting statements  that show they are trying  to cover something up,  or don’t know  what they are talking about.     The truthful witnesses  present verifiable facts  that match up  with all the evidence given.     One can trust their “testimony”  because it can be shown  to be true.

God  has shown us  that His “testimony” regarding our Savior  is true and trustworthy.     Ever since the Garden of Eden  and over thousands of years,  God made many prophecies  about the Savior,  who would save us  from eternal condemnation,  by cleansing us  of all our sins.     All those prophecies came true  in Christ Jesus  to the smallest details.

So,  we can read the Old Testament prophecies  —  and then read  the New Testament  to see how they all came true.     Because they came true,  we can be assured  that Jesus is truly  “the Son of God”  and that faith  in Him actually does take away absolutely all of our sins  —  just as the Bible testifies.

Regarding “testimony”1 John 5:9-11  has this to say,

If we receive the testimony  of men,  the testimony of God  is greater;  for the testimony of God is this,  that He has testified concerning His Son.     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. 

God Almighty,  our Creator,  has given us irrefutable,  historical evidence,  that Jesus  —  and Jesus only  —  has the power  to take away all  of our sins  and make us worthy  of eternal life  in heaven.     The whole Bible is God’s “testimony”  and proven evidence.     It is backed up  by other historical records  that have been discovered  by archeologists,  as they keep on digging up various historical sites.

It’s only sensible  to believe  the verifiable “testimony”  found in the Bible.     These days,  there are all sorts of books  that try to take away  from the truths  in the Bible  —  or add their own imaginations  to the Bible,  thus twisting God’s word into a lie.     It is vitally important  to stick  to God’s word  —  His “testimony”,  so that we can know the joy  of God’s love and faithfulness  to us  over the years.

Ever so glad  to know God’s powerful love  for us,  we say,  “Hallelujah!     LORD,  thank You  for giving us Your eternal ‘testimony’  of life  in Christ Jesus.”

Love,
Margaret
