MORNINGTIME 2244
 
Verily, verily, I say unto thee, We speak that we do know, AND TESTIFY (of) THAT (which) WE HAVE SEEN; and ye receive not our witness. If I have told you earthly things, and ye believe not, how shall ye believe, if I tell you of heavenly things? John 3:11-12. To Testify: "to be a witness, to bear witness, i.e. to affirm that one has seen or heard or experienced something, or that he knows it because taught by divine revelation or inspiration". When you Testify to something you are giving a First Hand account of something you KNOW ABOUT. For a Christian to testify of his love for Christ, HE HAS TO FIRST BE IN THE PRESENCE OF CHRIST to know Who he's talking about. MANY people in the church "get saved" by saying the magical "prayer" because that's what the pastor TOLD THEM TO SAY, but never meet Christ in Repentance and Forgiveness, and therefore, HAVE NEVER MET CHRIST. As soon as you start talking to them about Christ, it becomes apparent they have no clue Who they're talking about. And if you dare question their "salvation" they won't listen because THEY KNOW THEY HAVE MET CHRIST, THE PREACHER TOLD THEM SO. How many "believers" could stand up to the scrutiny of a court full of Christians hearing their "testimony" about Christ? (A friendly "court" WANTING to hear your good testimony). If you can't convince fellow Believers here on this earth, what chance do you have of convincing Christ YOU KNOW HIM because someone told you to say that??? Could your Testimony actually stand up to a real courtroom full of non-believers, like Jesus before Pilot? Even the "heathen" can testify, "He's been with Jesus", even if they don't want to believe it. Right now, here, today, is a great time to "judge" one another's "walk" with Christ to be sure you really ARE one of His. To stand before Him on Judgment Day and find out you've missed the mark, "DEPART FROM ME YOU WORKER OF INIQUITY", is a very hard way to go into eternity. TESTIFY of Christ and Who He Is, and, Be Blessed.
