Being A Witness

The Beloved Disciple John wrote in chapter 1 by THE SPIRIT:

14  And the Word became flesh and dwelt among us, and we beheld His glory, the glory as of the only begotten of the Father, full of grace and truth.

The word dwelt means to fix one’s tabernacle, have one’s tabernacle, abide (or live) in a tabernacle (or tent), tabernacle.  Jesus was manifested on earth as a witness or personal representative of Our Heavenly Father to “tabernacle” among us.  The glory of FATHER was witnessed by the multitudes as they encountered Jesus.

15 John bore witness of Him and cried out, saying, “This was He of whom I said, ‘He who comes after me is preferred before me, for He was before me.’ ”

16 And of His fullness we have all received, and grace for grace.

17 For the law was given through Moses, but grace and truth came through Jesus Christ.

18 No one has seen God at any time. The only begotten Son, who is in the bosom of the Father, He has declared Him.

John the Baptist bore witness of Jesus for he was shone by Divine Inspiration the SON OF GOD and it was confirmed at the baptism of Jesus.  John was the witness at the beginning of Jesus’ public ministry.  Jesus tabernacle’d or temporarily dwelt among us in order to establish the witness on earth for all to see.  In Matthew chapter 14, Jesus fully represented the Divine Intent of FATHER toward the multitude:

14 And when Jesus went out He saw a great multitude; and He was moved with compassion for them, and healed their sick.

By being a witness to all mankind of FATHER’S Will and purpose, we are not ignorant of WHO FATHER is and what HIS Divine Intent is toward all mankind.  Jesus proved His credibility with signs and wonders following Him.  No one could deny His witness because of the power and authority by which He operated.  Jesus confirmed His relationship in John chapter 14 when He spoke:

6 Jesus said to him, “I am the way, the truth, and the life. No one comes to the Father except through Me.

7 “If you had known Me, you would have known My Father also; and from now on you know Him and have seen Him.”

8 Philip said to Him, “Lord, show us the Father, and it is sufficient for us.”

9 Jesus said to him, “Have I been with you so long, and yet you have not known Me, Philip? He who has seen Me has seen the Father; so how can you say, ‘Show us the Father’?

10 Do you not believe that I am in the Father, and the Father in Me? The words that I speak to you I do not speak on My own authority;but the Father who dwells in Me does the works.

11 Believe Me that I am in the Father and the Father in Me, or else believe Me for the sake of the works themselves.”

Today, we are called to be witnesses as well and Jesus sent The Holy Spirit to dwell in us in order to empower us to confirm FATHER’S Glory to mankind just as Jesus did.  Very few have truly embraced this Truth as others assumed this power and authority were to be given to a select few.  Jesus did not restrict who could become a viable witness on His behalf for He left the choice up to us.  Those of us who hunger and thirst for a deeper relationship with FATHER are the ones to be chosen as witnesses unto all mankind.  Do you want to become a credible witness with firsthand experience of HIS Glory?  Then join me in full pursuit of speaking and walking according to HIS Word.  In John chapter 20:

21 So Jesus said to them again, “Peace to you! As the Father has sent Me, I also send you.”

22 And when He had said this, He breathed on them, and said to them, “Receive the Holy Spirit.

23 If you forgive the sins of any, they are forgiven them; if you retain the sins of any, they are retained.”

We have been commissioned and authorized to walk in the same manner as Jesus.  Let us come boldly to the Throne and receive our instructions so that we may be fully credible witnesses to all mankind.
