You know sometimes things can be right in front of our eyes and we can’t see it. Happens all of the time. I find myself watching certain movies more than once and everytime…everytime seeing something or hearing something for what seems like the “first” time.
And so…I look at Revelation 12: 11 It’s talking about something that already happened…but it’s a description about the future. It’s one of those Gold Nuggets or gems that the bible holds for believers. An unbeliever isn’t going to think that it makes sense. To them it would be like finding a winning lottery ticket for a date that hasn’t come yet. For real. But for you…it is put there not to tell us just about how Satan can finally be defeated in the end times to be locked up for a thousand years…but also to tell us what to do when we face our greatest adversities!
It tells us two things : that we overcome Satan…out man him…our adversary…our enemy…with THE BLOOD OF JESUS …(and notice the conjunctive word or the bridge…) AND the word of our testimony…
The Blood of Jesus brings the victory…we know that part…but at the SAME TIME so also does our sharing our testimony…it brings the Blessing and not in any way that we can understand….just like pleading The Blood of Jesus brings victory, certainty and peace…so also does a simple thing like sharing our testimony!
After a horribly long brain surgery…I survived. Though there are no signs of it now…I was left paralyzed on the left side of my body, with a unfaltering stutter , poor vision, not able to walk and amidst many skeptics.
So with that in mind…a wonderful group of Jehovah’s witnesses rang my doorbell. I invited them all in…and they seemed quite comfortable in my Living room to hear my testimony about the Glory and the Goodness of God!
I’m sure they wondered how could I praise Him so passionately…for letting me live when I did not come out of the surgery perfect? In fact, it would be a few more years before I would fully recover…but God did some outstanding things with me…during those times.
They didn’t get to see the full outcome…they never came back…yet I could see in their eyes…their being inspired by someone who wasn’t ashamed to declare God good! Oh it was amazing to be used as a vessel to spread a message of hope, thankfulness, gratitude…
We all have work to do…so I ask God that He anoint each of us…to share our testimonies…with others…in this Holy Season…in Jesus Name. So Be It!

After the Sabbath, at dawn on the first day of the week, Mary Magdalene and the other Mary went to look at the tomb. There was a violent earthquake, for an angel of the Lord came down from heaven and, going to the tomb, rolled back the stone and sat on it. His appearance was like lightning, and his clothes were white as snow. The guards were so afraid of him that they shook and became like dead men.
The angel said to the women, “Do not be afraid, for I know that you are looking for Jesus, who was crucified. He is not here; he has risen, just as he said. Come and see the place where he lay. Then go quickly and tell his disciples: ‘He has risen from the dead and is going ahead of you into Galilee. There you will see him.’ Now I have told you.”
So the women hurried away from the tomb, afraid yet filled with joy, and ran to tell his disciples. Suddenly Jesus met them. “Greetings,” he said. They came to him, clasped his feet and worshiped him. Then Jesus said to them, “Do not be afraid. Go and tell my brothers to go to Galilee; there they will see me.”
PLEASE PRAY FOR OUR SOLDIERS AND COVER THEM WITH THE BLOOD OF JESUS! THANK YOU.
3 Surely he will save you
from the fowler’s snare
and from the deadly pestilence.
4 He will cover you with his feathers,
and under his wings you will find refuge;
his faithfulness will be your shield and rampart.
5 You will not fear the terror of night,
nor the arrow that flies by day,
6 nor the pestilence that stalks in the darkness,
nor the plague that destroys at midday.
7 A thousand may fall at your side,
ten thousand at your right hand,
but it will not come near you.
8 You will only observe with your eyes
and see the punishment of the wicked.
9 If you say, “The Lord is my refuge,”
and you make the Most High your dwelling,
10 no harm will overtake you,
no disaster will come near your tent.
11 For he will command his angels concerning you
to guard you in all your ways;
12 they will lift you up in their hands,
so that you will not strike your foot against a stone.
13 You will tread on the lion and the cobra;
you will trample the great lion and the serpent.
14 “Because he[b] loves me,” says the Lord, “I will rescue him;
I will protect him, for he acknowledges my name.
15 He will call on me, and I will answer him;
I will be with him in trouble,
I will deliver him and honor him.
16 With long life I will satisfy him
and show him my
