The bible says in the book of Revelation chapter 19 that the testimony of Jesus is the Spirit of prophecy. When we share our testimony or speak about things that the Lord is doing, we are prophesying what He will also do for others. If the Lord gives you a revelation and you share it with someone, it will open their eyes to the same revelation. When you tell people how Jesus delivered you and set you free, His glory will be on your story to bear witness. There is so much power in your testimony.




Several years ago I had a dream about Jesus. In this dream I began walking down a long corridor. There were doors on each side of the hallway. I opened one door to the room on my right and it was a hospital room. I continued walking and opened a door on my left that appeared to be a guest room. As I continued walking I heard singing that sounded like a choir but I knew that it was angels. At this point I knew that I was dreaming and I thought to myself "If I listen, I will be able to hear the angels singing". I walked to the next door and sat down on the floor listening to the angelic voices singing "Worthy is the Lamb.”




The presence of God was so intense. I looked up and saw Jesus. There was a line of people waiting to go up to him to give him a hug and a kiss. I watched as each one had their turn. After the last person walked away, Jesus began to walk in my direction. I jumped up and said to him "Wait a minute, you also have to give me a hug and a kiss". He hugged me, and gave me a kiss, and His anointing flowed into my body. I wouldn't let him go and I kept saying: "Oh my God, I don't believe it." He had a big smile and laughed as His fiery presence radiated through me. As I woke up from the dream, that same anointing was still upon me. It was so weighty and I knew that it was an impartation. 




Within the next few weeks every time I shared that dream with people, that same anointing was present and they also felt it. Some of you may feel His presence just reading this because the anointing is transferrable. Within the next few weeks I heard the scripture from the book of Song of Solomon chapter three several times. The Shulamite woman was in great distress as she searched for her love and couldn't find him. She got up from her bed, and went out into the streets looking for him. She went up to the watchman asking "Have you seen the one that my heart loves?" When she found her love, she held him and would not let him go. (Song of Solomon 3:1-4)




Many of you have testimonies of things that the Lord delivered you from. He wants to use those testimonies to deliver and set other people free. When you share what God has done for you, you are prophesying what He will do for them, and giving them the opportunity to be delivered. Some of you have been delivered from drugs or a lifestyle of sin. Some of you have been healed physically or emotionally. When you share your story, others could be healed. There is so much power in your words when you simply speak what the Holy Spirit is giving you to speak. 




Some of you had encounters with God or visitations from Jesus. When you share this, it releases the anointing for them to also have encounters. When you speak the Word of God, it will touch and transform lives because it is a living word and full of power. People are desperate to hear a word from the Lord in these trying times. Darkness has covered the earth, and deep darkness the people. But the glory of the Lord will arise over you and His glory will be seen upon you, and His glory will be on your story. 





Isaiah 60:1-2

Arise, shine; For your light has come! And the glory of the LORD is risen upon you. For behold, the darkness shall cover the earth, and deep darkness the people; But the LORD will arise over you, and His glory will be seen upon you.



Jeremiah 1:9-10 Then the Lord put forth His hand and touched my mouth, and the Lord said to me: "Behold, I have put My words in your mouth. See, I have this day set you over the nations and over the kingdoms, to root out and to pull down, to destroy and to throw down, to build and to plant.”



Revelation 19:10

And I fell at his feet to worship him. But he said to me, “See that you do not do that! I am your fellow servant, and of your brethren who have the testimony of Jesus. Worship God! For the testimony of Jesus is the spirit of prophecy.”

this is so beautiful and such a testimony to the Lord's healing power and sanctification through our suffering. Much of my walk with Christ is similar to yours.
