Leaving A Legacy
A legacy is something that is passed down from one generation to the next. Most of us hope that we are leaving our children and grandchildren a positive legacy that may guide and bless them throughout their lives. I came to the shocking conclusion that my children had never heard the full story of God's salvation, healing and deliverance in the lives of Edith and myself. They had heard parts, and even lived through some of the events, but had never heard "the story." And if "the story" is never told to them, they may never know how Jesus became real to us and moved our lives these last 35 years or so.
Many people see the need for Christians to do something to "change the world," but don't know what to do. We believe that ONE way is to help folks record and place "their story" into a variety of online locations, such as YouTube, Facebook, DropBox, One Drive, etc., where these stories can be accessed for generations. Sooo... a legacy for future generations of family and friends, _and_ a testimony of Jesus' life to hundreds or thousands of people all over the world. Pretty good deal! So how do we start?
My Story Overview
The world is overwhelmed with bad news. There is death, destruction and despair in every newscast. Terrorist groups are bombarding the internet with hundreds of thousands of propaganda messages daily, indoctrinating, spreading influence, and recruiting new converts. We believe it’s time for the Body of Christ to use the same technologies to bombard the airwaves with personal messages of faith, hope and goodwill. Not just from professional speakers, teachers and musicians, but from real people who have experienced blessing, salvation, healing, etc., and are willing to share that experience with others.

How Do I Share?
There are a number of ways to record/share your testimony (or other input.) Here are a few:
Roles Available---Join The Team
The Christianbody.net vision is bigger than a few individuals. It requires an entire community of folks who can stand together as one and demonstrate the life of the Holy Spirit in whatever they are doing. We will likely see other roles as we move forward, but here are a few to start with. Many of you will fill multiple roles as the Lord leads.
PRAY-ERS--- The people who pray for the message, the people involved, the mechanics of the outreach, and the souls that will be reached as we work together. BTW, prayer is for ALL of us!
SUBMITTERS--- These are the precious saints who volunteer their stories for witness and edification. They come from all backgrounds, cultures and languages.
MODERATORS--- Receive the input emails and then pray, discern and confirm or reject along with other Moderators in the community. They communicate with submitters if needed, and then enter the stories into the database. May be an opportunity to pray with and for one another and submitters. Click "Read More" to continue.
Word Bytes (Scripture)
Word Bytes is another form of YOUR personal testimony. It has to do with scripture that has personal meaning to you and includes your testimony about that scripture. In other words, this is about scripture that the Holy Spirit places in your path and stirs, inspires, convicts, edifies, etc. Remember, it's YOUR STORY of God's love and power formed around a scripture revelation.
We recommend keeping this testimony to 5 minutes or less. If you have more to say and have a blog, website, Facebook, Twitter, etc., then place the link in our form under WEB. If folks want more of your testimony, teaching, etc., they can click on your link.
My Story (Testimony)
There are a number of ways that you might use to tell YOUR STORY. They all use the same input form which is at the bottom of the home page of this site. Here is the first category:
MY STORY (Testimonies)
These are YOUR personal testimony's. They describe times and places in your life where God has revealed Himself to you. They can tell of your salvation, healings, deliverance, miracles, times God has helped you through hardships... any thing that is relevant to your walk with Him. Your story can be recorded as audio, video, or text and can be saved to a variety of online locations (such as DropBox, Box.com, Drive, YouTube, Cloud, Google+, etc.) Don't worry, we can help you if this sounds like a foreign language. If you are entering long testimonies, we recommend that you do a short version, less than 5 minutes (like a movie trailer), and then do the full length version (up to 15 minutes.)
Also, you can do it in different formats if you wish. For example, you might enter your story in audio AND video AND text format. Or you might submit it in multiple languages. It's all up to you.
Christianbody Search is a service that organizes Christian media entries that are located around the web on various cloud storage locations, websites, blogs, YouTube, Facebook, Twitter, etc. Any media with an internet address that is entered into our system can be accessed instantly.
The Search Window displays the URL’s (internet addresses) of various media (audio, video, text) that is entered into our system. The entry at the top of the window is the last input that was entered, so as you scroll down, you see entries in order of entry. Once you find an entry that interests you, just click the “Text, Audio or Video” in the Link column. It will take you to the place that the media resides (it’s URL or internet address) where you can listen to the audio, view the video, or read the text.
Some of the entries may include the submitters email or website, Facebook, etc., so you may check out other materials that may be available from them or contact them if you wish.
