The testimony of Jesus is the spirit of prophesy.
Most of what we do in the Church as testimony is not testimony; we just come to brag about the things we believe God has done in us. Many times it wasn’t even the Lord who did them. Most times after cutting corners, you still do a thanksgiving in church, and you call it testimony; that’s not testimony. The word testimony is used very carefully in the Bible especially in the book of Revelation (Revelation 12).
The Bible spoke about the casting down of the dragon and how Michael and his angels fought and then there was worship in heaven and then they blessed the Lord, because the accuser of our brethren has been dislodged and there was no place found for him in heaven. So the Bible says “rejoice ye inhabitants of the heaven and woe to you the inhabitants of the earth”; we are not of the earth, hence it wasn’t to us.
For the accuser of our brethren has been cast down; he has come down with great wrath but they overcame him by the blood of the lamb and by the words of their testimony and they loved not their lives even unto death. What is their testimony? Later John who received that revelation in John 21; the Bible says when he saw the awesome things that the angel reveled to him, he fell to his face and wanted to worship him and then the angel said, “no!” don’t worship me; I am one of your brethren who has the testimony of Jesus. Then he said to John “the testimony of Jesus is the spirit of prophesy – worship God alone”.
The testimony is the declaration of the movements of God upon the earth, and every time it is declared it is released with the power for its accomplishment – So shall my word be that goes forward from my mouth, it shall not return to me void, it shall accomplish the purpose for which I sent it. So if you told us what the Lord has done, it was so the Lord can birth it in replicate thousands as people sat down to listen to it. If the process was by the spirit, then everyone who can walk by the spirit will be able to reach the end.
Every time you follow the spirit, you follow him to the place of the revelation of who God is. Please follow the spirit; when you follow the spirit, you congregate with heaven, then you will hear the testimony of Jesus, by the time you return, you return a different man. It is what you hear from God that you live by, for man shall not leave by bread alone but by every word that proceeds out of the mouth of the Lord. The problem is that many people are hearing the voice of pastors and not the voice of God. Paul said when we speak the testimony of Jesus among you Thessalonians we are glad that you do not receive it as our testimonies but as it is in truth the very words of God which works effectually in you. The word of God cannot go to work in you until you receive it as the word of God.
