Testimony - Excerpts from "and you will be my witnesses"
Author: Dieter Resistant

When we keep silent, other “false witnesses are speaking
A witness of God is someone who experiences something with God personally!

Isaiah 60: 1-3: “Get up, be light! For your light has come and the glory of the Lord has risen on you. For, behold, darkness covers the earth, and darkness covers the nations; but the Lord shines on you, and his glory appears on you. Nations draw to your light and kings to the light of your rising. "

Matth. 22,9 and Luk 14,23

“But you will receive power when the Holy Spirit comes upon you; and you will be my witnesses both in Jerusalem and in all of Judea and Samaria and to the ends of the earth! "

Isaiah 44.8: “You are my witnesses. Is there a god besides me?

Isaiah 43: 10-12: "It is true: You are my witnesses, says the Lord and my servant whom I have chosen ... and you are my witnesses, says the Lord and I am your God".

“Talk and do not be silent; don't hold back! "

God says in Isaiah 43:21: "This people that I have formed for myself, they should tell my fame."

Psalm 96: 2-3 says: “Proclaim his salvation from day to day and share his miracles among all peoples!

Psalm 145: 4-6; 11-12: “One generation will praise your works and your mighty deeds will proclaim them. Let them speak of the splendid splendor of your majesty and I will consider your wonders. They are to speak of the power of your terrible deeds and I want to tell of your great deeds ... They will speak of the glory of your kingdom, they will speak of your power, in order to make known to the children of men your powerful deeds and the splendid glory of your kingdom.

Acts 1.8: “But you will receive power when the Holy Spirit comes upon you; and you will be my witnesses in Jerusalem and in all Judea and Samaria and to the ends of the earth. "

Proverbs 14:25: "A true witness is a lifesaver."

(Matth. 22,9): Now go there on the crossroads of the country roads, and as many as you can always find, invite you to the wedding ".

(Luk 14,23): "Go out on the paths and fences and compel them to come in so that my house may be full "

"Follow me and I will make you fishers of men!" (Matthew 4:19)

Luke 19:10 says Jesus: "I have come to seek and save that which is lost."

2 Timothy 1: 8 says: "So do not be ashamed of the testimony of our Lord ... but suffer for the gospel according to the power of God."

Acts 4: 17-20: “But so that it is not spread further among the people, let us seriously threaten them that they no longer speak to anyone in this name. And when they called them, they commanded them not to speak or teach in the name of Jesus at all. But Peter and John answered and said to them, Whether it is right before God to listen to you more than to God, judge for yourself. Because it is impossible for us, from what we have seen and heard not totalk."

Only when we go and talk does He confirm His Word. Boldness and boldness are released when we fulfill our destiny: as powerful witnesses of Jesus and ambassadors for Christ; as a light in the darkness, as a living letter of Christ that has to be sent so that it can be read by the recipient. Go and do what Jesus told us to do: we will certainly experience the breakthrough of the anointing in us. Then we pray too:

"And now, Lord, see their threats, and give your servants to speak your word with all boldness, and stretch out your hand for healing, and the signs and wonders are done by the name of your holy servant Jesus." This prayer moved the heart of God and He immediately acted: “And when they had prayed, the place moved where they were gathered; and they were all filled with the Holy Spirit and spoke the word of God with boldness! " (Acts 4:29-3 1). "And with great power the apostles bore the testimony of the resurrection of the Lord Jesus, and great grace was upon them all" (Acts 4.33).

Acts 4.13 stands: "But when they saw the boldness of Peter and John and noticed that they were uneducated and uneducated people, they were amazed and they recognized that they had been with Jesus."

W.e want to learn from Jesus how to become a fisherman of men. Jesus teaches us in Matt. 9.13: “But go and learn what it is: I want mercy and not sacrifice. For I did not come to call the righteous, but sinners. " Jesus' heart was moved inwardly by mercy! That means: It wasn't cold, indifferent or tepid. No, it was on fire! That is exactly what we need, otherwise we will never have a savior love for the lost that drives us out to look for them.

In Luk. 15:20 we read of the return of the prodigal son to the Father: “And he got up and went to his father. But when he was still far away saw him his father and became moved inside and ran there and fell around his neck and kissed him. " We have to learn from Jesus, the people first to see with his eyes otherwise we never will moved inside be to look for them. We need a savior heart gripped by divine mercy, which is moved inside and strikes for the lost!

The same reaction can be seen in Matt.9: 36-38: “And when he got the crowd saw, he was inwardly moved by her, because they were exhausted and faint like sheep without a shepherd. Then he said to his disciples: The harvest is great, but the workers are few. Now ask the Lord of the Harvest to send workers into his harvest. " In Matth. 14.14 (feeding the 5000) as in the previous Bible passage: "And when he got out, saw he became a great crowd and became inwardly moved by her and healed their sick. " It was the same with the feeding of the 4000 (Matt. 15: 29-32).

We need a passion for the lost to reach them. Without real spiritual fire in the heart, our "seat meat" will not move an inch. This message from Being moved inwardly for me is always motivation and drive to go out. And when I go, I experience how God's Spirit walks with me and moves other hearts to decide for Jesus. Let's learn: Jesus' love of salvation in us is the key to human hearts.

God's Spirit calls to you: “Let me fill you and flow through you! Get far for God's saving love. Do not be cramped and closed and do not hold back! " God's Spirit really wants to create a personal breakthrough in each of us. But we have to allow Him to drive us out!

Matthew 24,12-14: "And because lawlessness prevails, the love of most will grow cold ... And this gospel of the kingdom will be preached all over the world, for a testimony to all nations, and then the end will come."

Matthew 12.30: "Whoever is not with me is against me, and whoever does not gather with me scatters!"

Hebrew 10.7 we read another statement of Jesus, to which we should agree: “Then I said: See, I come - it is written about me in the scroll - to do your will, O God.

"Can you agree with Jesus at this point and confess:" Yes, Lord, my name is also written in the book of life and I come to do your will ". When General William Booth, the founder of the Salvation Army, received a vision from God that showed him the true state of the church of Jesus at that time: namely on a rock in the sea of ​​people, waiting for the Lord - while very few believers tried below in the roaring surf to save the drowning people, he had only one goal and one vision: Save souls! Out on the street and into the smoky pubs and bars of the cities. We all need a real vision from the Lord for this hour we live in. We only have this a Given lives and our time is running out, with it the opportunity to make ourselves available for God. We cannot simply pass our joint mission on to others. Today is the day of salvation and decision: Yes, Lord, I come to do your will!

“All power has been given to me, in heaven and on earth. Go now and make disciples of all the nations "(Matt. 28: 18-19).

Matthew 28:20: "And see, I am with you every day until the end of the age."

2 Corinthians 2:14: "But thanks be to God, who always leads us in triumphal procession in Christ!"

2.Cor.10.4-5: For the weapons of our struggle are not carnal, but mighty for God to destroy fortresses; thus we destroy rationality and every height that rises against the knowledge of God, and we imprison every thought under the obedience of Christ. " We ourselves have this within ourselves false heights and fortresses tear down and thwart and destroy these ungodly reasonings.

The reasoning: I am not ready yet actually means I'm not ready! Here the enemy has already occupied the mind fortress! Ultimately, it is even stubbornness against God. Ps. 107:11 describes it this way: "For they had been unruly and had despised the advice of the Most High." We cannot afford to counter God's counsel by refusing to go out and seek the lost. If we don't go, we leave the field to the adversary. If we do not work and do not sow the field of the world, someone else will come who will do so immediately and gladly. He also reaps! It is an absurd idea to wait for a "better day" because the days are bad and we should buy out the time Today is the day of salvation.

If we really command our thoughts under the obedience of Christ, we can be sure that the Lord will break through in us and according to Eph. 2:10 he will bring us into the position that He prepared for each of us before the foundation of the world so that we can walk in it. In this position we begin in our mind without counter-argument: To say "yes" to the will of God for us. For the promise of Psalm 110: 3 must be: "Your people are full of willingness on the day of your power" also meet in our lives. This is what happens when we bring our self-will to the cross of Jesus. In this way we become useful and beneficial servants of God through whom God will be glorified. In Revelation 17, John leads us in his vision, which he received on the island of Patmos, into the end times in which we live.

Revelation 17.14 says: “And the Lamb will conquer them; for it is the Lord of lords and King of kings, and those who are with him are called and chosen and faithful! " This position demands clear determination and a frank confession of Jesus, as well as loyalty in what God expects of us. The Lord told me that He is raising himself an army that is victorious and goes forward without fear. Here, too, it is important to hand over our senses (thought center), our power and strength to Jesus. Here, too, the Lord gives out the slogan: "Whoever is not with me is against me and whoever does not gather with me scatters!"

Sons of Zion versus sons of Greece

S.In Zechariah 9: 13-15, God points out this end-time battle of both parties through the prophet: “I will wake your sons, Zion, against the tried and tested fighters of Greece and make you like a hero's sword. And the Lord will appear over them, and his arrow will go out like lightning. And the Lord blows his horn and walks through the storms of the south. The Lord of Hosts will protect them. " If we from new are born, the Spirit of God bears witness to our spirit that we are of above were born in heavenly Zion. This is also confirmed by Ps. 87: 5-6: “But of Zion it will be said: man for man was born in it. And the Lord will fix it. The Lord will write while listing the peoples (in the book of life), this one was born there. "

God's spirit awakens in us the consciousness what we are, who we are, where we are from, who we belong to and what we will do! True children of God need the awareness and inner testimony: “I am not of this world. I was born in heavenly Zion. I belong to the people of God, a chosen and holy nation. I am a messenger on behalf of Christ who is not ashamed of the gospel of truth and of the testimony of Jesus. "God raises us to battle against the sons of Greece.

Greece From a spiritual point of view, it is the cradle of occidental culture with its philosophy, mythology, humanities, psychology and humanistic thinking. In the book of Daniel 8: 5-21 the King of Greece as Shaggy billy goat depicted, whose great horn grew to the army of heaven and threw down some of the army and the stars to the earth. Yes, it grew even up to a colonel in the army - and the horn threw the truth to the ground and was successful.

The good news for us is that the Lord is here too, ultimately has everything under his control. We need not fear, for He is here giving a wonderful promise of encouragement, of strengthening. The Lord says, "I will make you like a hero's sword". Our sword is God's word in our mouths. God says: "See I put my words in your mouth." Here, too, is God's promise: "The Lord will appear over you ..." and: "The Lord blows the horn!" Read about it in Numbers 10: 9. And: "The Lord will protect you."

I.In the book of Daniel 11:32 we are taken back into this end-time struggle. Here we also see a tragic development among many believers. Maybe you think: "Oh, God is a God of love and ultimately He gave us free will". But here it says: "And those who are guilty of the covenant, he will lead to apostasy with smooth (seductive) words."

God's Spirit surely guides the righteous. But there are and are false spirits at work who, with beautiful, seductive words, lead those to apostasy who only listen to sermons, who "itch in their ears", who are only looking for "blessings", but their "I." "Do not want to crucify. There will be a rude awakening here for once!" "But the people who know their God will prove themselves strong and act accordingly."

Jesus says in John 15:16: "You did not choose me, but I chose you and determined you that you go and bear fruit and your fruit remain, so that what you will ask of the Father in my name he will give you." When I began to obey God by going out into the streets and squares of the city and throwing my safety net, I always pulled it in with "fruit of souls" and my heart was filled with joy because I experienced that "rivers of living Water flowed from me ". The dam was broken! God calls to you too: "Talk and do not be silent, do not hold back!"

W.e all know that standing water stinks over time because it has no drain. It is the same in the spiritual realm. You may have been a church member for years, heard countless sermons, and read many good Christian books. But if you don't pass on what you have, everything builds up - and you start to "stink". In the beginning you were spiritually "thirsty and hungry" and allowed yourself to be raised. At some point there will come a time when you realize that it "is actually always the same". You actually know almost everything and are only interested in "new things". Somehow you also feel "uh" and start nagging. Over time it "stinks" to you to go to the hour of prayer again and again because "nothing changes anyway". It is high time for a real breakthrough! Because spiritually you are only turning "in a circle". In this phase a lot has already built up: dissatisfaction, criticism, indifference, aggression, lack of love, etc. You are no longer enthusiastic about Jesus and have no visions and no goal for that you can get involved. You just don't "do" anything anymore.

Isa 26,17-18 says: “Like a pregnant woman who coils close to giving birth and cries out for help in her contractions, so we Lords have been before your face. We walked pregnant, we writhed. But it was as if we had given birth to wind, because: We did not bring salvation to the country and inhabitants of the world were not born. "

Micah 2,13 says: “The breakthrough pulls up before them; they break through and go through the gate and go out through it; and their King walks before them, with the Lord at their head. " I see the Holy Spirit at work all over the churches, in Christians who have long been crying out for a spiritual breakthrough. I see those who are broken in heart, who feel constricted and cry: "Lord, give me wide space!" God will create wide space for them. The Lord himself opens the gates of the heart and the community wide and gives the command: "Everything after me!" Then King Jesus himself leads his great army and they go out with jubilation to carry the message of salvation wherever they go as the anointed sons of Zion! "For you will go out in joy and be led in peace" (Isa. 55:12). The breakthrough itself moves forward and ensures that we have ample space for preaching the Gospel and a wide-open door to great effectiveness that no one can close, because God opened it!

“Who wants to go for me, who should I send? Who wants to be my messenger? " Few are really ready to say: "Lord, here I am, send me, I want to go!"

Matt. 20: 6-16: “But when he asked about the eleventh When he went out for the hour, he found others standing and said to them: What are you doing here all day idle? They say to him: Because nobody hired us. He said to them: You too go into the vineyard. " In the parable of the workers in the vineyard, the lord of the harvest goes back to the eleventh hour and is looking for workers for this last hour, because after that it was over, after work. According to the time calculation at that time, the eleventh hour of the day was at five o'clock in the evening. Work ended at six o'clock, because dinner was served at seven o'clock (time of the sacrament) and night fell at eight o'clock. Jesus calls out to all of us: "Work as long as it is day, because the night comes when no one can work."

Joh. 20,21: "As the father sent me, so I also send you."

Acts 8.1-4: "And all were scattered into the regions of Judea and Samaria ... The scattered went about preaching the word."

2 Peter 1: 10-11: “Therefore, brothers, be all the more anxious to establish your calling and election; because if you do these things you will never stumble. For in this way the entrance into the eternal kingdom of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ will be granted to you in abundance. "

### Christ's calling and election for all:

In Isaiah 43:21 the Lord clearly states what He expects of us all: "This people that I have formed for myself, they should tell my fame." In Isaiah 43: 10-12, God says. "It is true: you are my witnesses, says the Lord and my servant whom I have chosen ... and you are my witnesses, says the Lord and I am your God." In Isaiah 44: 8 this statement is confirmed again: "You are my witnesses!" In 1 Peter 2.9 it also says: "You are a chosen race, a royal priesthood, a holy nation, a people of possession, that you might proclaim the virtues of who has called you out of darkness to his wonderful light. "

There are many biblical passages where God keeps saying: "You are ... Go ... Tell it, proclaim it, preach it, say among the Gentiles that the Lord is King!" God wants you to know who you are in Jesus Christ and what your mission, calling and election is. Make it firm! Do not doubt or be unsure. It is like a seed that the Lord puts in the heart. This seed is germinating and wants to grow in us, but this rise is often held down by one's own ideas and plans and therefore cannot grow.

In 2 Cor. 5: 19-20 it says: “... And has placed the word of reconciliation in us. So we are now messengers (ambassadors) instead of Christ, in that God admonishes, as it were, through us; we pray for Christ: be reconciled to God. " It really is a very honorable calling that God has placed upon us

Messengers are being sent! Jesus said in John 17:18: "As you sent me into the world, I also sent you into the world." It is a divine transmission to each of us, not just to the first disciples. Paul referred to the Corinthian Christians as "the living letter of Christ," who passed on the good news everywhere, and noted with approval: "It has become evident from you that you are a letter of Christ, drawn up by us in the service, written not with ink but with the Spirit of the living God, not on tablets of stone, but on tablets that are hearts of flesh" (2.Cor.3,3). You could see it from them, they radiated it and passed the good news on everywhere. The anointing is what matters and not a sour face.

Ecclesiastes 11: 4 says: "Whoever pays attention to the wind will never sow, and whoever looks at the clouds will never reap."

God says: “Look, I'm working on something new! Do you not recognize it? "

But the Lord said: “Do not be afraid, but speak and do not be silent! For I am with you and no one should attack you to harm you; for I have a great people in this city. " That is literally coming true. Paul also preached in public places. In Athens for example: "He talked now ... at the market every day with those who were just passing by" (Acts 17:17).

“All power in heaven and on earth has been given to me. Go now and make disciples of all the nations ... And, behold, I am with you every day until the end of the age " (Matth. 28: 18-20).

“But how will you believe in the one you haven't heard of? But how will they hear without a preacher? But how will they preach if they are not sent? " Romans 10: 14-15

In Acts 11: 19-21 we read: “Those who were now scattered by the distress ... went through to Phenicia and Cyprus and Antijochia and spoke to no one except to the Jews. But there were among them some men from Cyprus and Cyrene who, when they came to Antioch, also spoke to the Greeks, preaching the gospel of the Lord Jesus. And the hand of the Lord was with them, and a great number of believers turned to the Lord. "

2 Corinthians 2:14 b says: “And the smell of his knowledge revealed by us in every place. " This can really be experienced, which is why we are no longer allowed to set limits to God. The Spirit of God blows and gives life where He wants.

Luke 15:10: "So I tell you, there is joy before the angels of God over a sinner who repents."

"The angel of the Lord camps around those who fear him and helps them!"

Heb 1:14 teaches us about the ministry of the angels of God: "Are not they all spirits of subservience, sent out to serve for the sake of those who are to inherit salvation?"

The Acts of the Apostles shows us that audacity and Sincerity is an expression of the anointing by the Spirit of God. audacity and Sincerity has a urging, propulsive effect ". Isaiah 59:19 describes it this way: "It will come like an urging stream that the breath of the Lord drives forward"

John 4,4: "Because he who is in you, is greater (and stronger) than he who is in the world. "

1 Cor. 1.27 says: "God has chosen the foolish thing in the world."

Jesus says in Matthew 9:37: “The harvest is large, but the workers are few. Now ask the master of the harvest (Holy Spirit) to send workers into his harvest ".

“The Spirit of the Lord is on me because He has anointed me to preach good news to the poor; He has sent me to proclaim liberation for prisoners and for the blind to see again, to send the battered in freedom to proclaim a pleasant year for the Lord " (Luke 4.18).

"You are the light of the world ... so your light should shine before men so that they may see your good works and glorify your Father who is in heaven." (Matt. 5: 14-16).

The savior love of God in us is the key to people's hearts because they respond to love!

Lovely feet: a fragrance of God

HDid you know that in the eyes of God "lovely feet " when you preach the gospel to the people outside? In Isaiah 52: 7 the Lord says: "How lovely are on the mountains the feet of who brings good news, who proclaims peace, who brings good news, who proclaims salvation. " Lovely feet are blessed feet! In Nah.2,1 it says: “See, on the mountains the feet of the messenger of joy, who proclaims salvation. " In God's eyes we are lovely messengers of joy, when we are ready to proclaim salvation to the people of the world. One day the Holy Spirit said to me, "Son you are a fragrance!" I thought that one at first Spirit of flattery too would talk to me, but the thought persisted and when I looked for confirmation in the Bible I found it in 2 Cor. 2: 14-15: “But thanks be to God, who always leads us about in triumphal procession in Christ and him odor of his knowledge in every place by U.S disclosed. Because we are a fragrance of Christ to God among those who will be saved. "

A very important part of the spiritual armor includes Ephesians 6:15: "And shoe your feet with the readiness to preach the gospel of peace." The most beautiful knight armor is useless if it is only exhibited as an attraction.

“Do you not know that God's goodness leads you to repentance?” (Romans 2: 4). The penance of the heart is an act of grace of God's savior love, in the end it is "The love of God poured out into our hearts through the Holy Spirit who was given to us" (Romans 5: 5). And by the Holy Spirit, rivers of living water are to flow from us - not the bitter waters of Mara! Luke 4.18 says: "The Spirit of the Lord is on me because He has anointed me to preach good news to the poor!" These are words of grace and truth (John 1:17).

Do not preach the word with human wisdom!
(don't decide beforehand what to talk about)

The Spirit of God taught me an important lesson in this regard. He said to me, "Don't worry What you tell people because I will put the words in your mouth that you should speak! In Luk. 12: 11-12 says Jesus: “But when they bring you before synagogues and the authorities and those in power, do not worry about how or with what you answer yourselves or what you should say! For the Holy Spirit will guide you teach in that hour (enter), what you should say. " The people on the street "read" us! For this reason, our facial expressions should be relaxed and relaxed.

In one of the previous chapters I wrote about the fact that we should "radiate" the gospel. For this we need freedom, serenity and the awareness that the Holy Spirit puts the words in our mouths about how and what to speak. God knows all human needs and He is saying: "Let it be my problem, don't worry about it, because I'll give you mouth and wisdom as to what to say!" Ps.81,11 says: "Open your mouth wide, I want to fill it. "

In Proverbs 11:11 it says: "By the blessing of the righteous, a city comes up." Through your blessings, a person can be "lifted up and changed". For it has a prophetic effect. In the Bible we read that all people through the sin of Adam under the curse are. Jesus took this curse on himself on the cross. God showed me that His blessing break the curse! Yes, Jesus even commanded us: "Bless those who curse you" (Luke 6.28). 1 Peter 3,9 says: "On the contrary, blessing because you have been called to inherit blessings."

When I began to put this truth into practice, I often experienced the following: For example, when I prayed about a person, "In Jesus name, I break the curse on your life and bless you," something happened: their body sagged for a moment together, as if a heavy yoke had been lifted from it. Blessing means multiplication, multiplication of the good that God has prepared for us fully aware We bless people with whom we pray, we pronounce the coming benefits of God upon them. This is not the case for people who reject God's blessings and do not want them. God doesn't force his blessing on anyone. But there is one group that will receive the blessing, that is, the "meek, the humble, those who are broken in heart, who hunger for God's Word, the thirsty." I have blessed thousands of these broken people - and they have afterwards Jesus accepted into their life as Lord.

The river of life has been flowing since the first outpouring of the Holy Spirit on Pentecost in Jerusalem without ceasing from the heavenly temple down to earth to us, through you and me to spread to the ends of the earth. "For the earth will be filled with knowing the glory of the Lord as the waters cover the bottom of the sea" (Hab. 2:14).

I would like to emphasize here once again: The Ankle anointing " doesn't have the strength to drive us out because our feet are still on solid ground. We have to take these steps ourselves and go deeper into the flow of the spirit - until it drives us to those who need the water of life. Ultimately, God's Spirit wants us overflowing fill, because only what overflows, is passed on. In Ps. 23: 5 David says: "You have anointed my head with oil, my cup overflows." When you are anointed, you can give the anointing to others.

Jesus says in relation to this: "For the mouth speaks from the fullness of the heart" (Matthew 12:34). Jesus said further “In this my father is glorified that you a lot of fruit bring and become my disciples " (John 15,8). In John 15:16 he says: “You didn't choose me, you chose me I have chosen you and appointed you to go and bear fruit, and let your fruit remain so that whatever you ask of the Father in my name he may give you. " The harvest is large and not small. God is looking for workers who are ready to go into the harvest to bring in the bundles of sheaves: thirty, sixty, a hundred times! Whoever has is given that he has overflowing!

Don't stop testifying and preaching about Jesus

D.remember that the divine stream does not stop flowing, the wind of the spirit does not stop blowing and the fire of the spirit does not stop burning! Remember that the saving love of God does not stop saving that the blood of Jesus does not stop People from their sins to wash and clean, and that the Holy Spirit does not cease To convict people of sin and to bring the spiritually dead to life - as long as God gives us the time to work! Jesus therefore says: “We must work the works of him who sent me while it is day; the night comes when no one can work. " (John 9.4)

"And they did not cease ... to preach Jesus as the Christ" (Acts 5:42).

In Acts 4:33 we read about this: “And the apostles bore witness to the resurrection of the Lord Jesus with great power and great grace was upon them all! " So: who are you preaching? A great god! And what does He give you? He gives you great strength and great grace! Because that is in you greater, than the one in the world.

It is the hour where God's spirit awakens the sons of Zion, who as the army of light stand up for the truth of God and also proclaim it and let no one stop them, because he who is in them is greater than he is in the world. "And those who are with him are called, chosen and faithful" (Rev. 17:14). The trumpet sounds: “Wake up, wake up! Dress yourself in power, you arm of the Lord "(Isa. 51,9)." The Lord has bared his holy arm in the sight of the nations and all ends of the earth see the salvation of our God "(Isa. 52,10).

2 Corinthians 4: 13-14 says: “But since we are the same Spirit of faith have - as it is written: I believed, that's why I talked - that's how we believe too, that's why we talk too! "

But Peter said, I have no silver or gold; but what I have, I give you: In the name of Jesus Christ the Nazarene: Walk around! And he took him by the right hand and straightened him ... and he jumped up and was able to walk! " (Acts 3,6-8).

Give a living testimony of the greatness of God

In Isaiah 43:21 the Lord says: "This people that I have formed should tell my fame." Ps. 145,46; 11-12: “They will proclaim your mighty deeds.Let them speak of the glorious splendor of your majesty ... They should speak of the power of your terrible deeds and I will tell of your great deeds. ... They will speak of the glory of your kingdom, they will speak of your strength to make known to the children of men your deeds of power and the glorious glory of your kingdom ". 1.Chr.16: 23-24: Declare his glory among the nations, and his miracles among all peoples. "

Know and confess your calling from Acts. 1,8 and act accordingly

1. So I am now: A messenger and messenger in place of Christ. A living letter of Christ. A bold and powerful witness of Jesus and fisherman of men. I am: empowered, anointed and sent by the Holy Spirit and made capable of every good work, filled with the saving love of God and the mercy of Jesus. My heart is moved inside, because so does Jesus' heart moved inside was when he saw the crowd.

2. I confess and believe: a) That I have not received a spirit of fear and bondage, for the scriptures say in 2 Tim.1,7: “Because God doesn't have us one Spirit of fearfulness given, but to strength, love and discipline. " b) i do not be ashamed of the testimony of our Lord, for it is in 2 Tim. 1.8 written: "Do not be ashamed of the testimony of our Lord." For this reason I free myself from fear of man for the Scriptures say in Isaiah 51:12: "Who are you, that you are afraid of the person who dies and of the child who is given up like grass."

3. The result of the anointing of Acts 1.8 is Boldness and boldness. I am not intimidated by the adversary, because the word says in Acts 4:29: “And now Lord, look at their threats and give your servants to speak your word with all boldness. " It also says in Acts 4:31: “And they spoke the word with great frankness'. The anointing breaks the yoke of fear of man, intimidation, and despondency. I am not one of those who fearfully hurry and back away! Daniel 11:32 says: "But the people who know their God, will prove strong and act accordingly. " Ezez.3,9 says: “See, I made your forehead hard like a diamond. "

4. You belong to Army of the Sons of Zion those against the sons of Greece victorious are. You were born in heavenly Zion (Psalm 87: 5-6). The one in you is stronger than the one in the world! If you go out for Jesus, He has already gone before you, for it is written: "The breakthrough pulls up before them, they break through and pass through the gate and go out through it, and their King walks before them and the Lord at their head" Micah 2.13. Revelation 17:14 says: "And those who are with him are called, chosen and faithful. "You have a seal of approval from God, which stands for quality.

5. Preach the word ... not with human wisdom (no cramping) ... but in demonstration of spirit and strength. Very important! Do not worry, What you say to people because the Lord says: "I will put the words in your mouth that you are supposed to speak." Read Luke 12:12. Rely on God's promise completely. Otherwise you and the people are tense check it out!

Jesus says in Matthew 6:22: “The lamp of the body is the eye; when your eyes are clear, your whole body will be light. " You are the light of the world, let your light shine before people so that they can see your good works. Have a kind eye full of love and mercy and do not play the judge! For a kind eye will be blessed. Shine on them and remember that Jesus came to seek the lost and to save sinners. Make sure that from your body, from within you, rivers of living water flow: words of life!

6. God wants us to talk in a way that hits your heart. You are an arrow of salvation and God's saving love. "And when they heard it, it penetrated their hearts" Acts 2.37. Go to their level down when you talk to them. You can reach Catholics if you teach them the Holy Spirit. You believe in him. Mary said: do what Jesus tells you to do! Cite this passage. You can reach Protestants if you ask for their confirmation speech. Older people know him more often, that's a good starting point. Avoid word disputes (arguments about different questions of knowledge) it only robs you of your strength. Do not preach religion, but preach Jesus!

7. Ask them if you can say a personal prayer for them and bless them! The blessing of God breaks the curse. Pray something like this: I am blessing them now in the name of Jesus. Heavenly Father I come to you with ............. and I ask you to bless this person now. Renew her faith and give her a new heart and a new spirit ". Ask her if you can pray a surrender prayer with her and have it prayed clearly, for example like this: “Dear Lord Jesus. Renew my faith and come into my heart. Forgive my debts I'm so sorry. Please write my name in the book of life ". Be sensitive when you find people suffering from unforgiveness and hurt. Talk to them so that they are ready to forgive, as Jesus taught us in "Our Father". Also ask them if you can pray for inner and outer healing and practice it immediately if they agree with one believing prayer in the certainty that according to Mark 16:18 and 20 God cooperates. I experience that again and again. Then provide them with spiritual nourishment (good tracts, additional literature, Bibles). Give them the address of a known or your own Christian congregation. If possible, contact this person personally with communities that are located in their vicinity (city / village).

8. "See, I am sending my messengers before you". Be certain and convinced that the Lord will bring people to you through his messengers: the angels of God. You just have to ask and tell him beforehand, where are you going. In a vision the Lord said to me: Do not worry, through my angels I will send you the people I want ". It happens! So count on it. Do not forget that angels are specially appointed to stand by us. Hebrew 1.14: "Aren't they all spirits of subservience, sent to serve for the sake of those who are to inherit salvation?"

In this last hour of harvest, God wants the sleeping giant - his parish wake. All spiritual rules for personal evangelism are ineffective if we are not really ready to act as living witnesses of Jesus in the anointing of Acts. 1.8 go out to serve.
