Ye are my witnesses, saith the Lord, and my servant whom I have chosen: that ye may know and believe me, and understand that I am he: before me there was no God formed, neither shall there be after me. I, even I, am the Lord: and beside me there is no saviour (Isaiah 43:10-11).
When the Spirit of the Lord is upon His servants, they become witness of not only Him, but His will, way and eternal purpose. “But ye shall receive power, after that the Holy Ghost is come upon you: and ye shall be witnesses unto me both in Jerusalem, and in all Judea, and in Samaria, and unto the uttermost part of the earth” (Acts 1:8). You cannot be a witness of Him if you do not know Him, believe in Him, and understand His supremacy. He is God all by himself. Being a witness depends upon your personal knowledge of Him.
That which we have seen and heard declare we unto you, that ye also may have fellowship with us: and truly our fellowship is with the Father, and with his Son Jesus Christ (1 John 1:3).
This then is the message which we have heard of him, and declare unto you, that God is light, and in him is no darkness at all (1 John 1:5).
There are many considered to be “heroes” throughout the scriptures. These heroes were holy people who understood that they belonged to God and were totally led by Him. As we look at servants such as Jeremiah, Moses, Abraham, and David, we take notice that they were not perfect men but circumstances brought them closer to God. God draws whomever He wills to be close to Him and created within them the testimony of His greatness. When servants become witnesses of the Lord, they are witnesses to the one and only true God. Their job is to declare that He is Lord and that there is salvation in no other name.
