Something caught my attention the other night as I turned on the news briefly; there is this coverage of a murder trial for a woman accused of murdering her beautiful and innocent 2 year old daughter. During the process of Juror selection, one of the women selected had a sudden outburst in court. Turns out that she is mentally challenged and highly medicated. She was questioned and rebuked by the Judge and was given a light sentence but none the less she was held in contempt of court! In this example we see that the testimony of our lips is important and we are accountable for every idle word.
But I say unto you, That every idle word that men shall speak, they shall give account thereof in the day of judgment.
Later on I was researching some scrpitures and God guided me to this passage:
REVELATION 12: 10-11
And I heard a loud voice saying in heaven, Now is come salvation, and strength, and the kingdom of our God, and the power of his Christ: for the accuser of our brethren is cast down, which accused them before our God day and night.
And they overcame him by the blood of the Lamb, and by the word of their testimony; and they loved not their lives unto the death.
The confession of our lips needs to reside deep within our hearts and minds. Our testimony is indeed the thing that governs us, fuels our actions and determines what the outcome of our lives will be, in this lifetime which is short and the second lifetime, which is eternal.
No matter where, no matter what, no matter who. I know whom I serve and why! This is me, this is what I stand for and this is what I BELIEVE, this is my TESTIMONY!………..
I believe that the Bible is God’s “Holy Word” , His instructions and words of Love to us which were written by men, but directed and inspired by God through the Holy Spirit (also called the Holy Ghost). It is entirely accurate, without error, complete, total and final authority in all matters of faith and/or conduct.
( 2 Timothy 3:16,17, 1 Thessalonians 2:13, 2 Peter 1:20-21 )
I believe that God the Father is perfect, Holy and Omniscient, infinite in wisdom, and measureless in power. God expressed His love for all people by sending His Son to die for our sins so that we might have eternal life with Him in heaven.
(Luke 18:27, John 3:16-17, Romans 11:33, 1 Peter 1:16, 1 John 4:7-10, Revelation 4:8)
I believe that Jesus/ Yeshua is the Son of God, He is God Himself, and that He became a completely human man. Conceived through the power of the Holy Spirit, He was born of the virgin Mary. Jesus lived a sinless life, He chose to die as the perfect sacrifice for the sins of all people, (The Lamb Of God). He was fully and bodily resurrected from the dead and appeared to many people. He now sits at the “right hand of God” (the utmost place of power and honor), interceding (standing in to provide protection) for the sins of His people (those who accepted him as Savior and Lord).
(Matthew 16:16-17, Matthew 25:31-46, Mark 14:61-62, Luke 1:34-35, Luke 2:7, John 1:1, John 1:14, John 5:22-30 , John 10:30, John 14:6, Acts 4:12, 1 Corinthians 15:3-8, Hebrews 4:15, 1 Peter 2:22-24)
I believe that the Holy Spirit is received in full when someone gets right with God through Jesus, so all true Christians “have the Holy Spirit.” The Holy Spirit convicts the world concerning sin, righteousness, and judgment. He is the power that enables Christians to live a Christ-like life (as God leads them). The Holy Spirit secures our receipt of eternal life.
(John 16:8-11, Acts 2:38, Romans 8:9, Galatians 5:16-26, 1 John 3:24)
I believe that mankind was created in the image of God and given dominion over all the earth. Man forfeited everything when he chose to disobey God (in the Garden of Eden) in spite of warnings regarding the consequences for doing so. As a result sorrow, tears, pain, sickness, death, and all that is “not good” came into existence. This was never God’s intention (and therefore not His fault). All of the people who lived since that time have also sinned, for which the penalty is death. Only through accepting Jesus as Savior and by making Him Lord of your life can you spend eternity with God in heaven. Those who reject or ignore Jesus Christ will suffer God’s wrath for their sins (having no acceptable sacrifice or payment to suffice) and will suffer eternally in Hell (which simply is existence eternally void of God)
(Genesis 1:26-27, Matthew 25:31-46, Romans 3:23 , Romans 6:23, 2 Thessalonians 1:5-10, Revelation 20:11-15 , Revelation 22:3-5)
I believe that Salvation requires that the individual repents, and humbly accepts Christ as both Savior and Lord.
(John 1:1, Acts 2:38-39 , Acts 8:26-40 , Acts 16:25-34, 1 Peter 3:21-22)
I believe Yeshua our Lord and Christ will come in glory (in the clouds, with the trumpet call of God) and that every eye shall see him. He will righteously judge all people, the dead first and then the living based on their acceptance or rejection of Him. Yeshua, Jesus the Christ our Lord is the only way to bridge the gap of sin between God and mankind, He is the only way to have a relationship with God and He is the only way to receive eternal life with God in heaven.
1 Thessalonians 4:13-17
Heavenly Father, I come to you in fervent prayer for the lives and souls of every one alive today. We all share one very splendid thing in common, You… our Creator. We need you, those who do not know you, .need you! Your Holy word estbalishes many powerful irreversable truths that I may stand upon. I boldy recount them to you Lord becuase you placed them there for me to use, to harness and to assert on behalf of myself and everyone else (as I seek to do your will and am thankful for office of my comission). Faith is the substance of things hoped for and the evidence of things unseen. If have no doubt in my heart, I may ask anything (seemingly impossible) and it shall be establsihed. Wherever two or more gather together, you are there in the midst, going before and abiding with. Your word and your promises are unfailable and it is your desire that all of mankind turn to you, repent and find forgiveness through the blood sacrifice of your Holy Son, Our Lord. I ask you Father, this day…to unleash a Revival, shower this world with Holy Spirit and touch every living soul. Impart your Spirit and Word all across this globe, from young to old, all levels of intellect and social standing, every nation, language and land. Father, protect and guard us…help us to seek you whole heartedly and to bind your word upon hearts until the day of your return! AMEN
