Power of Your Testimony

Do you realize that you can be forgiven from something but still hold on to the shame of that sin?

The enemies goal is to kill, still and destroy.(John 10:10) He can keep you bound in shame after you are forgiven by God by putting thoughts of condemnation upon you for something that is already under the blood of Jesus! The end of that verse says that Jesus came to give life, and life more abundantly.


The battle first is in the mind. When we Repent (turn and go the other way, not to do it again) we are forgiven by God. He throws it into the sea of forgetfulness never to be remembered again.
But the enemy does not forget and he will throw that in front of your face as often as he can to keep you buried Down Under the weight of a burden that is non-existent in the eyes of God.
One of the main ways you can break the power of that condemnation is by Sharing Your Testimony of what God has done in your life. The Bible says we overcome the Devil by the Blood of the Lamb, the word of Our Testimony and that we do not love our lives even into the death (Revelations 12:11).

We Overcome him NOW, not just at the end of the world. We overcome him daily in our thoughts by taking the blood of Jesus that has covered our sins and commanding the enemy to leave! Then by the word of Our Testimony, we share our freedom that we have received to others.

There are so many sins that are embarrassing and keep us full of shame because we don’t want anyone to know we ever struggled with that. But if we do not share what we have overcome we are robbing someone else of the hope that God can free them from their pit of shame! We are robbing them from the realization that they can take the steps to get freedom from the sin that so easily entangles them. If people don’t realize there are others out there that have walked their walk and have broken free from that sin, then they will never have the hope of a new life walking in Purity before God..

It’s time to get bold with our testimony.

There are hundreds of thousands of people out there who need the transforming power of the blood of Jesus to break chains that have held them in bondage.

Your testimony could be the chain breaker that could change not only their lives but the Legacy that comes after them.

The Accuser of our brothers and sisters thrown out, who accused them day and night before God.
They defeated him through the blood of the Lamb and the bold word of their testimony. They weren’t in love with themselves; they were willing to die for Christ.
Revelations 12:10-11

You can’t choose your Testimony… BUT

Yesterday morning was the first time I’ve ever been woken up to take the picture of the sunrise. On my photography page you can see the progression. It was without a doubt the most incredible gift from God to me.

Today I kept saying to myself, I never wanted the testimony that I’m going to have. Then God told me this,

✨”You can’t choose your testimony but you can choose how to respond to the circumstances that bring you to it.

When you’re going through circumstances that are beyond your control, that you never chose, it’s a daily decision to act, talk and think like Jesus. But if we can do that and keep our mind and heart right and pure before Him, He will give us the grace and strength to respond to those who hurt us with a supernatural Mercy. If I can do it, you can!

Faith – Trust – Heaven – The true story of Dean Braxton, his journey to heaven after being dead 2 hrs.

Some people think, if you desire at end of your life to go to heaven, you are giving up the fight a faith. Not True! It is a very delicate balance of believing in faith for healing to the very very end and at the same time having complete trust in God if death takes place. The hardest part is not resenting God if a loved one does join him in heaven.

It is almost like being stiff-necked and stubborn in your faith and quickly trusting God if we do not see the result we want., it may be easy to give up your faith when things happen that we don’t understand, but if you are ever in that place there are millions around the world who understand what that feels like and there are people who can help support you in that time of grief.

3 years ago Dean Braxton came to Destiny Christian Fellowship to share his testimony of dying and coming back to life after visiting heaven. He is so humble and genuine. This was my first impression of what he said.

“Incredible message from Dean Braxton today. Totally changed my perspective on dying. He went in for kidney stones and the toxin exploded through his body and he was Dead for 1hr 45min.

What he experienced in dying and what he felt and experienced in heaven he compared Biblically as he spoke today. He talked about animals in heaven and that everything is alive, everything has intelligence and is aware and alive. In revelations it ever talks about a bird that flies around the throne giving praise to God. He said he can’t accurately describe what it is like because you just dont have earthly words to describe it other than Pure Love and a Peace that is indescribable.

He said that when a believer in Christ is dying their spirit leaves their body even before the body breaths its last breath. What remains is like a car running out of gas. There is such a quick transition but total peace because you are in the presence of Jesus. He said as he arrived Jesus was there with all his family members as well as generations of those in his family who went before him. He said that everyone and everything welcomed him and was happy to see him. All our attitudes go away just pure thoughts and feelings. Negative relational Issues from people on Earth are gone. THAT is something to look foreword to.

He said that Jesus told him he needed him more on Earth than in heaven right now, that he had a mission to fulfill. Dean kept on saying that we are here for such a short time and that in heaven there is NO death and decay. That every day we wake up we are here for a shorter amount of time. We need to take advantage of every day. Sharing with those we know that Heaven is real, Jesus is real and his love surpasses the wrong things we do in life. Nothing compares to knowing Christ and realizing that not only did he die for our spiritual death but our physical death. The pain of death does not touch the believer! What a gift Christ gave us. Oh, Death where is your sting. Oh, grave where is your victory. He has overcome and we get to live with Him for eternity. He is our treasure and our reward!

For the full testimony, here is Dean’s Book. I would encourage you to read and share it with others who might still fear dying. It is such an encouragement.

Victory in your Testimony

Get ready for a massive wave of revival to sweep through this generation! God is doing something huge . Last night I had a dream that I was back in public high school school. I was in a large room of students during lunchtime and I began to share my testimony. It’s interesting because my testimony was as if I shared it right now as an adult. But the whole room became silent as I shared. I shared through lunch and then my teacher came in who would normally have whipped the class into shape and have me sit down but she didn’t she just stood there. After I was done sharing my testimony I asked who wanted prayer and 30 kids came eager to be prayed for. The school bell rang so I didn’t have a chance to pray for them and it was so painful to feel like I missed that chance as they had to walk to their other classes. I went up to my teacher and thanked her so much for allowing me to keep on sharing. She said she could not stop listening and thanked me. 

The feeling of joy and exhilaration when I woke up is something I will never forget. I am praying today for all those in classroom settings that they will be bold and share their testimony of faith. 

Romans 10:14-17 But how will people call on Him in whom they have not believed? And how will they believe in Him of whom they have not heard? And how will they hear without a preacher messenger? And how will they preach unless they are commissioned and sent for that purpose? Just as it is written and forever remains written, “How beautiful are the feet of those who bring good news of good things!” But they did not all pay attention to the good news of salvation; for Isaiah says, “Lord, who has believed our report?” So faith comes from hearing what is told, and what is heard comes by the preaching of the message concerning Christ.”

It doesn’t matter big or small nobody can argue with your own personal testimony. They might argue your theology but never your testimony. 

One of my favorite songs when I was little was Be Bold! Be Strong! It truly has been my anthem.

🎼BE BOLD – BE STRONG- FOR THE LORD YOUR GOD IS WITH YOU. I wont be afraid, no no no, I won’t be dismayed, no no no. For I’m walking in Faith and Victory, Come on! Walkin in Faith and Victory. For the Lord your God is with You. 

Why dont you run through the camp, tell all the people get ready, get ready. Why dont you run through the camp tell all the people get ready! 🎼

GET READY FOR THE CHANCE TO SHARE YOUR TESTIMONY

Now the salvation, and the power, and the kingdom of our God and the authority of His Christ have come, for the accuser of our brethren has been thrown down, he who accuses them before our God day and night. 

11“And they overcame him because of the blood of the Lamb and because of the word of their testimony, and they did not love their life even when faced with death.” 

Revelations 12:10-11

Why it is important to tell your kids your personal testimony

God is so faithful to give us parents wisdom when we ask. While the enemy tries to bring in fear and doubt, the Spirit of the Lord raises up a standard against him when we pray! I was crying out to God today for wisdom after seeing little attitudes creep up I didnt like. I told my child Nothing in my life matters except that I know their relationship with Jesus will last their whole life. They saw my passion through my tears as I told them that My only concern is teaching them to follow after Him in purity and that their life would be full of the fruit of the spirit and love. None of us know how long we are in this planet and it is my #1 priority above all else that they know how important it is to make Godly decisions in all they do.
I decided to use my TESTIMONY, which is the spirit of prophecy, to let my child know I wasn’t always a perfect little girl. Without going into detail I was able to share how from 4-13 I lead a double life hiding sin and giving into temptation. I shared my struggles and the condemnation I would feel after repenting but going back to it. I shared how I walked with shame all those years and hid it not sharing with my parents. That it wasn’t till I was much older that I confessed to my youth pastor and my parents and was lead through steps of forgiveness. (In reality I wasn’t totally free till I went through a “SOZO” which some amazing trained counselor/prayer team took me through many layers of Jesus coming and revealing himself to me in my times of sin, where he was and how he loved me all the way through. I recommend it to anyone!) I told them they can always know we are here to talk to and they dont have to feel ashamed, especially now since they know I messed up also. Its time for us to be real with our kids, allowing them to have a safe place if they mess up. A place of healing and restoration to get on the right track. Jesus never turns His back on us, neither should we!
Our kids should always feel safe talking with us and if they dont we get to keep on gently tenderizing the ground in trust, wisdom, discernment and HAVING A HEART CONNECTION WITH OUR KIDS. If we feel the heart connection is widening it is time to STOP EVERYTHING AND GIVE THEM ALL OUR ATTENTION TILL THE CONNECTION IS TIGHT AGAIN. Lord, help us to know if and when this is happening and how to bridge the gap. Praying for you and your connections! God we want our kids to follow hard after you and never wander. Help us know how to parent wisely, not step into unexplained legalism, oh boy, but know how to explain in a clear and wise way why God isnt pleased with the things of the world and why we need to stay separate from it. Being set apart, as we learned on Sunday, holy and consecrated to God. That living a pure and holy, Godly life is NOT a bore! That living righteously brings FREEDOM, JOY and PEACE NOT FOUND ANYWHERE IN THE WORLD. We are raising kids who are ushering in the Kingdom of Heaven, they will transform this world in ways we could only dream of. The same spirit that raised Christ Jesus from the dead LIVES IN THEM!! There is NO JR. HOLY SPIRIT. They are not going to have to wait till they are their parents age to experience all that God has for them it begins NOW!! HA, YES JESUS! I declare it, I declare it over my kids and all those who are reading this, their kids and grandkids! AMEN
