Testimonies

Testimonies

We overcome by the blood of the Lamb and the word of our testimony. Therefore believers testify of the truth of God's Word that has been worked out in their lives; tried, tested and proven to be trustworthy. By faith we can, even in our day and age, see the practical outworking of God's word in our lives.

Helen Banman - Helen Banman

Through Faith...

...in Jesus Christ Sister Helen Banman is saved. “By faith I choose to walk with God; the choice is made. The Lord has won my soul.

My Lord and My lord - Christy

When someone asks you to give your testimony in front of a large crowd, don’t you immediately feel small and unworthy for the unspeakable honor it is to be a mouthpiece for God’s glory? Well, that is how I feel now as I sit here writing. No, I am not standing in front of you, but I do know that what I write will be heard by many. It humbles me.

Tina Fehr - Tina Fehr

By Faith...

 

...Sister Tina Fehr accepted the Lord Jesus Christ as her Savior and the Lord of her life, and was born into the kingdom of God. Through faith she is dead to sin and alive unto Christ Jesus, pressing on to higher ground. By faith, being yet inexperienced in marriage and child rearing, she received of God a husband and three small children. Through faith she loves, serves, and cares for them, laying down her life for them as Christ laid down His life for her (see John 15:13).

By faith, after having gone through a deep struggle of rebellion and doubting God, she repented, trusting God to raise her up, uphold her, and place life back into her spiritual legs and feet so that she could walk again for His honor and glory (see Ps. 145:14).

And what shall we more say? For time would fail us to tell of our daily victories during trials and temptations, of weaknesses made strong, of instances of submission and giving of ourselves, of holding on to the promises of God, of testifying of His goodness and faithfulness, of striving to live righteously before God in a world which does not understand us, of looking on and pressing on to a heavenly country, the New Jerusalem, where we will see our Jesus face to face. All this we do BY FAITH.

Now faith is the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen. Hebrews 11:1

Treasures of Darkness - Christine H. Lamicela

"And I will give thee the treasures of darkness,
and hidden riches of secret places."
Isaiah 45:3a

8510It has been about fourteen years since I heard a message on this passage. At the time that I heard the message, I had already been struggling with health problems and could relate to the message in many ways. The point of the sermon was that God sometimes allows trials that we do not understand to impart deep spiritual treasures to His children. Since I had had physical difficulties most of my adult life, these kind of trials were familiar to me. Now God’s Word was telling me that there were treasures that could only be found by going through these dark times.

The World Didn’t Satisfy Me - Penny Tindall

"He brought me up also out of an horrible pit, out of the miry clay, and set my feet upon a rock, and established my goings. And he hath put a new song in my mouth, even praise unto our God: many shall see it, and fear, and shall trust in the Lord."
Psalm 40:2-3

These verses really describe what has happened to me during the last few months. In order for you to fully understand what took place, I should go back to my childhood. When I was three years old, I was taken away from my parents and placed in a foster home. In this foster home, I was exposed to witchcraft, drugs and a lot of evil things. Joseph & Elizabeth Tindall adopted me when I was almost seven years old. As I look back, I am so very thankful that the Lord allowed me to be placed in a Christian home, and that they were willing to endure me till I came to God.

An Awesome Testimony of Prayer - Rachel Weaver

Taken from the Heart beat of the Remnant

Let me share with you an awesome testimony of a tiny bit of what our God will do when we pray. Walk with me through the last six weeks of our lives before our son, Paul, age 17, died instantly in an auto accident, September 1, 2007. Although I had been praying earnestly for him for many months, six weeks before he died I was able to begin to pray with a few mothers who had a prayer burden for their children’s spiritual needs. Obeying His call to pray, and believing God’s presence to be in our midst, we prayed and God began work. Things for which I had been beseeching God for nine months, began to be answered. Truly our Father in Heaven hears the cry of His children when they come together in faith.
