Testimony as an Evangelism Tool

The testimony of Jesus is the spirit of prophecy.    Rev. 19:10b

The accuser of our brothers has been thrown down, he who accuses them day and night before our God. They have conquered him by the blood of the Lamb and by the word of their testimonyRev.10b – 11a  

Boasting on God’s goodness & glory

Testimonies are bragging on God.  We are lifting Him up.  We are boasting on His goodness and glory.

Sometimes when people read testimonies, it will give them hope.  They may even experience the same miracle.

The testimonies can spur people on to get closer to God.  Testimonies can be a type of evangelism.

My Facebook testimony

I had a definite miracle in my life.  A week ago I was hearing impaired.  Today my hearing is virtually perfect.

Read these two testimonies that I uploaded to Facebook.

testimony Left ear

A supernatural event happened to my ears this week.

Previous to that, while Linda & I were having coffee twice a day, my most common word probably was “pardon”. My hearing was really bad.

When my dad was 95 years old, it was impossible to have a conversation with him because his hearing was so bad. I was heading in that direction.

I was missing so much of what was being said. I often could not enjoy comedians because I would miss key words. Certain pitches were very difficult to hear.

On Sunday Pastor Matti asked the hearing-impaired people to raise their hands. Then he asked people around us to pray for restoration.

Suddenly people’s voices got louder. I’m getting used to the sound of my own voice. It can seem so loud now. Linda no longer has to repeat herself. Thank you Lord.

testimony Beach boys in studio

This is some 1966 footage of the Beach Boys creating Good Vibrations. To watch it go to https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=uVlSVkzbJDA

Now that I’ve had my hearing miracle, I can hear every bit of harmony that was created. They’re amazing.

Unless you have had body parts taken away and then restored years later, you probably have no idea what emotions I’m feeling.

Not only can I hear all of the sounds, but I’m thinking about the good vibrations in my ear drums. My inner ear is translating all of those vibrations into sounds I can actually hear — something I could not do last week.

Thank you Jesus!

Facebook engagements

Those two Facebook posts gave me more likes, comments and shares than anything I have ever posted on Facebook.

People like hearing those types of stories.

When you have a miracle, let lots of people know.  You never know who you will be evangelizing.
