The incredible power of testimonies
1 Samuel 17:34-37, Isaiah 43:10
Testimonies have power, they are a clear sign of the raw power of God at work.
Even Jesus’ disciples believed Him because of testimonies ( John 2:10).
Satan will do anything to make people to conceal testimonies, that is why God punishes those who hide testimonies.
What do testimonials do?
1. They are tools of encouragement (2 Corinthians 1:3-4, 1Corinthians 14:26)
When you hear of what God did for another person you are encouraged.
2.Testimonies birth testimonies (Mark 5:28, 6:56)
3.They defeat the enemy’s plans (Revelation 12:11)
You can use the testimonies of what God has done for you to defeat the enemy.
4.They prophesy of the future (Psalm 119:111, Revelation 19:10)
5.They are reminders of God’s goodness (Mark 13:37)
Testimonies are ordained to reproduce themselves in the lives of those that believe.
A testimony tells you that what God has done for one person he can do for anyone else.
6.They are confirmations that God’s word works (Mark 16:20)
How can I reproduce testimonies in my life? (John 11:40)
You must :
1.Believe that the testimonies you’re hearing are true ( Acts 22:18)
2.Believe in the power of God that brought about the testimony (Psalm 28:5)
3.Believe that the testifiers are true
4.Believe in the steps (pathways) the testifiers took in order to have the testimony (Jeremiah 6:16-17, Hebrews 6:12)
5.Believe God to reproduce the testimony in your own life (Hebrews 4:2)
6. Give thanks to God genuinely for the testimony you heard
