WHOSE WITNESS ARE YOU?

Above Him there’s no other Jesus is the way

“But the Holy Spirit will come on you and give you power. You will be my witnesses. You will tell people everywhere about me—in Jerusalem, in the rest of Judea, in Samaria, and in every part of the world.”
Acts 1:8 ERV

Jesus was speaking to the disciples and he told them that they’ll receive power when the holy spirit comes on them and as a result they will be his witnesses.
It’s rather alarming today how many people who claim to have had God encounters aren’t witnessing of Jesus Christ but are rather trapped in the scheme of men to expand their business empires.
A witness in a court room is expected to speak about what he/ she knows about the person in question and is expected to tell the truth and nothing but the truth.
That’s why the early apostles always emphasized that they were witnesses. See…👇

“That which was from the beginning, which we have heard, which we have seen with our eyes, which we have looked upon, and our hands have handled, of the Word of life; (For the life was manifested, and we have seen it, and bear witness, and shew unto you that eternal life, which was with the Father, and was manifested unto us;) That which we have seen and heard declare we unto you, that ye also may have fellowship with us: and truly our fellowship is with the Father, and with his Son Jesus Christ.”
1 John 1:1‭-‬3 KJV

To be a witness of this gospel of peace, you must have encountered the Lord Jesus Christ for yourself. You must have repented from your sins and surrendered your life to Him, received the gift of salvation and you must have been baptized by His spirit. You ought to have a personal testimony of who Jesus Christ is to you.
When witnessing you are to testify of Him, what He has done for all who believe, what He has done for you and what He will do for who you’re witnessing to.
Many today have replaced this with the advertisement of their worship centres. The danger in this is that the quality of people you’ll attract to that worship centre will depend on the quality of the life you live.
Yesterday two young ladies approached me and invited me to worship at their worship centre. They never told me about Jesus, they didn’t even pray for me and when I asked them if I could pray with them they refused. The question for me now is who are they witnessing about?
Don’t be deceived, what many call evangelism is simply a rally. Whom many also witness about is not Christ Jesus but a man that they idolize.
Not even Jesus testified of himself rather He testified of Our father in heaven. He commanded us to testify of Him because that’s what a witness does.
When we have nothing we have seen, or heard or handled from the word of life about the Lord and claim to witness of Him we have become false witnesses. Our witness cannot save this untoward generation from the coming judgment.
See what the bible says about a true witness…👇

“A true witness delivereth souls: but a deceitful witness speaketh lies.”
Proverbs 14:25 KJV

A true witness delivers souls but a person who is still bound by sin and lost in the world cannot deliver any. It takes power to deliver souls and until we have been saved and empowered from on high we cannot save others.
May you be delivered from the shackles of sin and empowered from on high to be a true witness.
Go and prosper!
