Testify Courageously

God has a testimony

If we receive the testimony of men, the testimony of God is greater, for this is the testimony of God that he has borne concerning his Son. 1 John 5:9

John suffered because of Jesus’ testimony

I, John, your brother and partner in the tribulation and the kingdom and the patient endurance that are in Jesus, was on the island called Patmos on account of the word of God and the testimony of Jesus. Revelation 1:9

The testimony about Christ was confirmed in all believers

even as the testimony about Christ was confirmed among you— 1 Corinthians 1:6

The persecution of the saints

Then the dragon became furious with the woman and went off to make war on the rest of her offspring, on those who keep the commandments of God and hold to the testimony of Jesus. And he stood on the sand of the sea. Revelation 12:17

In our days, the early 21st century, the testimony of Jesus/Christ/God (a) is still being confirmed (b) is God’s witness to His Son and is the spiritual facet that gives us hooks into the gospel.

God is not in competition with organizations and things, which are all potential ideals. Christ’s witnesses are certified and sealed by the Holy Spirit.
