Topic: OVERCOMING BY TESTIMONY.part 3.
Text : Revelation 12:11.
11: And they overcame him by the blood of the Lamb, and by the word of their testimony; and they loved not their lives unto the death.
Testifying to the goodness of the Lord is the way out of present battles and challenges. Speaking about our victories of the past is clearing the way for more victories.
Speaking has always been a way forward for man. The world itself came to existence by spoken words, everyone speaking of the goodness of the Lord is building assurance of victory over present challenges.
Let me expatiate more about the David and Goliath. I wasn’t expecting Goliath to talk, if I were Goliath I would see no reason to talk to the small boy, I would count it as insult to exchange words with the boy I can easily hang on a tree as food for the birds, but Goliath didn’t do that, see what he did here: 1 Samuel 17:42 And when the Philistine looked about, and saw David, he disdained him: for he was but a youth, and ruddy, and of a fair countenance.
43 And the Philistine said unto David, Am I a dog, that thou comest to me with staves? And the Philistine cursed David by his gods. Notice something here; despite the fact that Goliath disdained David in verse 42, he didn’t forget to curse him by his gods in verse 43, that was fetish, diabolic, it wasn’t ordinary. That’s how he has been fighting his battles and winning. If you are a good student of the Bible you will remember that Balak hired Balaam to curse the Israelites in Number 22, the same thing Goliath is doing here.
See one of the definitions of testimony here: assertion offering firsthand authentication of a fact.
Saul had told David the testimonies of Goliath’s past battles, David also told him the testimonies of his own battles. Those are the testimonies of their past, and after that they needed to talk about the future, they both needed to make statement of fact for the future, what is going to happen next, so, for Goliath to secure victory he cursed David in the by his gods.
David didn’t ignore Goliath words, he didn’t say, ‘ you’re saying trash ‘, rather, he said, ‘ Thou comest to me with a sword, and with a spear, and with a shield: but I come to thee in the name of the Lord of hosts, the God of the armies of Israel, whom thou hast defied. 1Samuel 17:45. That is what delivered the victory.
What you are saying now will determine the outcome of the present challenge you are facing. Your testimony is absolutely important, it is important you speak, as you speak light will break forth on your path in the name of Jesus.
* Say good things to your life, speak against challenges, and difficulties.
