|Share The Testimony, Put The Devil To Shame! by FreshGreen: 11:07am On Jun 17|
SHARE THE TESTIMONY, PUT THE DEVIL TO SHAME!
I remember when I joined Deeper Life Bible Church in 1998, active testimonies were part of Revival service on Thursday then. Both adults and youth, leaders, workers and members were sharing testimonies of the goodness of God with brethren for edification. But it got to a period, gradually that the leaders and workers were refraining from sharing testimony, it was then becoming like the activity of only members, new converts or young believers in Christ. No more excitement in sharing testimony with brethren. And same thing also with many churches, in fact some preachers categorically tell their members not to share testimony of God’s goodness in their lives with brethren in the church so that satanic people in the church would not hear about it and destroy the work of God.
There are many notions and ideologies which Satan has used to silent children of God from sharing testimonies of the goodness of God, because Satan knows that testimony is a powerful tool in Christianity, testimony is a practical power of God in manifestation that edify believers and move sinners to salvation to see that God is still doing wonders, that God is still faithful and that God is still good. Not only does testimony serves as great means of ministration to believers and sinners, but it is also a weapon of overcoming and prevailing for the believer who shares the testimony. In the Book of Revelation12:11, “And they overcame him by the blood of the Lamb and by the word of their testimony, and they did not love their lives to the death.”
Why many believers are not prevailing today, why many are not overcoming by the blood of the Lamb and why miracles and blessings of God are becoming absent in the lives of many Christians TODAY is because they refused to share testimony of goodness of God in their lives YESTERDAY.
DO YOU KNOW?
Do you know why many Believers in the Lord are not sharing testimony of God’s goodness in their lives with people in their churches, on their social media and others? It is simply because of FEAR! You can call it anything, but it is fear. Satan uses FEAR to silent children of God from sharing goodness of God and so many are not being edified or encouraged that God is still doing it or that God can still do it for them. What a funny irony, you are afraid that demonic people in your church or even if Satan himself comes to your church when you share testimony, can he do anything to what God has done? Are we more afraid of what Satan can do than what God has done? When did believers begin to keep silent to declare the goodness of God in their lives because of witches and wizards? This is not Bible.
You are getting married, you can’t share the testimony of how God eventually settled you with the best because Satan tells you, “You better keep quiet, and what if the wedding is cancelled? You will become a fool” So you keep quiet with “Let me wait till I get married, till the testimony is full”. Then you get marry, the Spirit of God tells you that “You need to share the testimony to encourage My single daughters and sons who are weary in waiting, but Satan tells you, “You are just married with no child yet, you don’t even know if you are going to be barren or not, you don’t know how long this your marriage will last, and you want to begin to blow trumpet of God’s goodness in a month old marriage, what a fool. I think Bible says wisdom is profitable for leading.” And that was how Satan silent you till today and your testimony became irrelevant.
We the believers of this generation, we need to go back to the Bible and be assured again that when God does something for us, as long it is God, the God Almighty who made heaven and earth, who created Satan and chased him away from heaven, that no witches, no wizards, no principalities, no powers of darkness, I mean no even Satan can destroy the work of God in our lives, except we allow sin. Only sin can ruin God’s goodness and blessing in a believer’s life.
By God’s grace I will continue the second part of SHARE THE TESTIMONY, PUT THE DEVIL TO SHAME God willing tomorrow. Remain blessed in the Lord

This was beautifully written and very true.
There is such a poweful, encouraging and motivational influence for other brethren when a testimony is shared.
Even if just thanking the Lord for seeing yet another morning is all one can testify about, that is still worthy of sharing with the congregation.

FreshGreen:Can you please provide for us a link between the claim in bold and the teachings of Jesus Christ, the New Covenant Law of God Himself, supporting this claim of yours?
Where exactly do you have Jesus Christ corroborate this claims you make regarding sharing of testimonies?
Where does this idea that it impacts the devil,..from God or through the doctrines and traditions told you of men?
