Christianity In The Raw
Much of modern Christianity is about highly produced meetings, videos, movies and music. Seems many Christians feel that they have nothing to contribute if they aren't accomplished speakers or musicians. This is a lie that the enemy would love to have us believe. While we are thankful for every expression of Jesus' testimony and life in this hour, we have to wonder how the early church reached the entire known world without any of our modern conveniences. The early believers had ONE thing that revolutionized the world... the testimony of Jesus Christ in the power of the Holy Spirit. It did not depend on their theological training (many were illiterate) or their charismatic persona. It was "their story of Jesus' life" that they had experienced.
So, let's make this personal... YOUR story is IMPORTANT! YOUR story of JESUS' life being revealed in YOUR person is not about theology or Christian principles, it's about YOUR real experience of HIS life. YOUR comment or testimony spoken under the anointing of the Holy Spirit can be more powerful than a million dollar presentation to a person in need. The Holy Spirit makes Jesus known through believers, even in their (our) weakness. We are HIS instruments, HIS conduit, HIS temple on the earth. Remember Paul's declaration in Ephesians 1:22,23... that "Jesus is head of the church (ecclesia) that is the fullness of the manifestation of the presence of Jesus in the earth." That is NOT my opinion... that is the testimony of the Holy Spirit as recorded in New Testament scripture. How can we walk this out?
We now have technologies that can communicate with multitudes world wide instantly, something the primitive church never had. A spirit filled testimony recorded on a cell phone can be just as powerful and life changing as a multi-million dollar Christian movie when it's presented in the proper timing to a person in need. But God's kids have been duped into thinking that we have to have a "perfect" presentation in order to reach a soul or bring healing or deliverance into someone's life.
It's time to roll out the real testimonies which have been hidden for so long in the Body of Christ. Testimonies with the warts, the bumps, the stutters and the mistakes. Testimonies from regular folks who love God and have experienced His amazing love. Revelation 12:11 gives us a solution to the onslaught of the dragon (satan.) It says "they overcame him (dragon) by the blood of the Lamb, the word of their testimony (of Jesus,) and they loved not their lives unto death. We see the enemy perpetrating his lies throughout the world, flooding the internet and media with thousands of messages presenting a doctrine of death, destruction and despair. His followers are not shy in reporting the doctrines, ideologies and exploits of their god and are willing to give up their lives for that testimony.
It's time for the Body of Christ to rise up and counter this flood with the testimony of Jesus. Let's stand with the Lord as He raises up His standard against this flood. Your testimony of Jesus IS important. We all need it to be available when someone in confusion and despair clicks on an internet search and asks "who cares?" It can help them make a life or death decision.
So please pray for this ministry as we launch and begin to enter these amazing expressions of the life of Jesus made manifest in His children. Also pray that He shows you your part in the end-times battle that is expanding every day. Let your friends know so the word will get out. Forward our emails. Contact us and we'll help you enter your testimonies into the data base. And, once you are familiar with the process, please teach others to do the same so that they can teach others.
The still small voice is becoming a mighty roar!
Blessings to you in Jesus Mighty Name!
