*Guest Post* Can I Get a Witness…!

CAN I GET A WITNESS….!

Truth

From the early dawn of human history the eternal being known as ‘GOD’ has revealed Himself empirically by His ability to communicate; long before the establishment of various man-made religions God has accurately and consistently throughout time revealed His truth thru verbal and written testimony to humanity “God who in different times and in various ways spoke in time past to the forefathers and prophets” (Hebrews 1:1)

Now with the ability to communicate the attribute of intelligence is a requirement, only a Supreme Intelligent being such as God, who can and does speak to another intelligent being created in His image and likeness…Man. Communication by definition is someone revealing accurate facts about himself, his character, what he knows, revealing his thoughts to us as lesser created beings; seeking our attention and requiring us to respond to that truth. And the standard of that of communication must be based on Intelligence, Truth and Reason and the character of God himself; the very concept of truth originates with God who is Living Truth, who also possesses impeccable integrity as a character trait; as it is written “It is impossible for God to lie” (Hebrews 6:18)

God has also determined the principle on which to determine the validity of truth from His written record “BY THE MOUTH OF TWO OR THREE WITNESSES, LET THE MATTER BE ESTABLISHED!” (Deut. 19:15) this will be the determining factor in this article by which the truth of the matter will be established.

Through the Fire! (A Testimony)

Beloved, think it not strange concerning the fiery trial which is to try you, as though some strange thing happened unto you: But rejoice, inasmuch as ye are partakers of Christ’s sufferings; that, when his glory shall be revealed, ye may be glad also with exceeding joy (1 Peter 4:12-13).

I have always told my family that there are two ways that I do not want to die: one is that I shiver at the thought of drowning, with my lungs being filled with water and not being able to breathe , NOOO! The other way is that I do NOT want to die in a fire; it’s just unfathomable to me, and even when I see the news about a home being on fire with people left in it, my heart weeps for them. It seems such a tragic way to pass! Yet many times we as believers are walking through fire without the flames; the heat of our trial becomes so hot that we feel that we are suffocating, can’t breathe and feel that we may not survive. We have all heard the term “trial by fire”, and it is usually applied to initiations, new employment or some other carnal ceremony or ritual. What about Godly trials? Do you have what it takes to survive them?

Just a little while ago I was listening to a song that had me praising God, and before I got two minutes into it I received bad news on two sides; one came in the mail and the other via the doorbell, and it happened in rapid succession! My trial had begun. After I got a chance to catch my breath for a second, I can be completely honest and say that I began to cry, and I could hardly catch my breath. When my son asked me what was wrong, I told him that I can usually be the strong one, take things to God in prayer and leave it, yet in that moment I allowed the fire to consume me. I told him that it was one thing on top of the next thing on top of another thing, and that I felt that it was more than I could bear. Then I laughed through my tears and remembered that Jesus’ burden was much heavier, as He carried the whole world on His shoulders. When my son asked me how he could help, I laughed again and told him, “only God can help me right now son, thanks”. Read the rest of this entry »
