Don't Lose Your Testimony ()

Dr. Sylvester Williams, March 23, 2014

Christ gave examples to his disciples of what the end times will entail

We will be challenged in our faith, things will be testimony

Joseph was a favorite son of Israel (Jacob)
- Go thru and not lose our testimony

We in body of Christ are being challenged in our faith because government, schools, has told us what we can and cannot say; because we don’t want to cause an disturbance

No testimony without a test; people have thrown the towel in after is seemed that they understood who to work it out; don't throw in the towel but continue to endure; Book of Martyrs - story of man who gave up on Christ Jesus on his death bed

Joseph held on to his faith over 13 years… even though people talked about him, doubted him,
- your decision to quit could cost you your testimony

Gen 37:3
- Love can produce jealousy; can come from those closest to you
- Favor can cause others to hate you

Gen 37:5
- God's anointing comes at a cost
- Joseph's dream brought problems for him when he told the dream
- God speaks to bring correction and not material blessings; refer to OT prophets

Gen 37:23
- Joseph's brothers betrayed him because of anointing, favor and gifting

Gen 37:31
- Joseph's went and told a lie on him
- Look at the coat w/ blood on it, my son is gone - Jacob
- You are not to old to go through; Joseph was 17 years old

As soon as we are getting back on our feet another trial / tribulation comes
- Pharaoh's wife desires Joseph; but he didn’t give in, he ran and she lied on him and had him imprisoned
- No matter where you go you have the favor of God in your life

Gen 39:22
- Joseph took lead, favor of the Lord in his life,
- Regardless of the situation take advantage of it; don’t lose the testimony that has been given to you

Gen 41:4
- God rewards faithfulness; remain faithful everywhere we go
- Godly will suffer persecution; got to believe what God's word says
- We go thru in order to help somebody else; somebody is / will go thru just like you

Focus on what you are; what God had given you; stop focusing on what you are not;

Jesus is the Son of God ()

Dr. Sylvester Williams, March 9, 2014

You need to know who Jesus the son of God is.
Ancient of days. Tacitus wrote about Nero saying that he knew about Jesus Christ. People don't want the sin in their lives to be addressed. You can't have it your way because Jesus is the Son of God, and is the Savior of your life. We say that we are Christians but doesn't reflect it in our lifestyle or in the way we live. If Jesus is your Lord than he is your Boss.

Begotten - to come out from.
The whole word of God is where Jesus is......

John 3:16
For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life.

John 3:16-21
For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life. For God sent not his Son into the world to condemn the world; but that the world through him might be saved.
He that believeth on him is not condemned:but he that believeth not is condemned already, because he hath not believed in the name of the only begotten Son of God. And this is the condemnation, that light is come into the world, and men loved darkness rather than light, because their deeds were evil. For every one that doeth evil hateth the light, neither cometh to the light, lest his deeds should be reproved. But he that doeth truth cometh to the light, that his deeds may be made manifest, that they are wrought in God.

John 8:31-32
Then said Jesus to those Jews which believed on him, If ye continue in my word, then are ye my disciples indeed; And ye shall know the truth, and the truth shall make you free.

Genesis 1:26
And God said, Let us make man in our image, after our likeness: and let them have dominion over the fish of the sea, and over the fowl of the air, and over the cattle, and over all the earth, and over every creeping thing that creepeth upon the earth.

Jeremiah 25:6
And go not after other gods to serve them, and to worship them, and provoke me not to anger with the works of your hands; and I will do you no hurt.

Daniel 7:13-14
I saw in the night visions, and, behold, one like the Son of man came with the clouds of heaven, and came to the Ancient of days, and they brought him near before him. And there was given him dominion, and glory, and a kingdom, that all people, nations, and languages, should serve him: his dominion is an everlasting dominion, which shall not pass away, and his kingdom that which shall not be destroyed.

Isaiah 9:6-7
For unto us a child is born, unto us a son is given:
and the government shall be upon his shoulder:
and his name shall be called Wonderful, Counsellor, The mighty God,
The everlasting Father, The Prince of Peace.
Of the increase of his government and peace there shall be no end,
upon the throne of David, and upon his kingdom,
to order it, and to establish it with judgment and with justice
from henceforth even for ever.
The zeal of the Lord of hosts will perform this.

1 Timothy 6:10
For the love of money is the root of all evil: which while some coveted after, they have erred from the faith, and pierced themselves through with many sorrows.

Mark 10:2-9
And the Pharisees came to him, and asked him, Is it lawful for a man to put away his wife? tempting him. And he answered and said unto them, What did Moses command you? And they said, Moses suffered to write a bill of divorcement, and to put her away. And Jesus answered and said unto them, For the hardness of your heart he wrote you this precept. But from the beginning of the creation God made them male and female. For this cause shall a man leave his father and mother, and cleave to his wife; And they twain shall be one flesh: so then they are no more twain, but one flesh. What therefore God hath joined together, let not man put asunder.

Romans 7:21
I find then a law, that, when I would do good, evil is present with me.

John 1:1
Chapter 1
In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God.

John 1:14
And the Word was made 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.

John 10:30
I and my Father are one.

John 17:11
And now I am no more in the world, but these are in the world, and I come to thee. Holy Father, keep through thine own name those whom thou hast given me, that they may be one, as we are.

1 John 5:7
For there are three that bear record in heaven, the Father, the Word, and the Holy Ghost: and these three are one.

John 5:19-20
Then answered Jesus and said unto them, Verily, verily, I say unto you, The Son can do nothing of himself, but what he seeth the Father do: for what things soever he doeth, these also doeth the Son likewise. For the Father loveth the Son, and sheweth him all things that himself doeth: and he will shew him greater works than these, that ye may marvel.
