TITLE OR TESTIMONY? — Prophet Tony Mathias

Acts 11: 24 Barnabas was a good man full of faith though like Paul, he didn’t do things that made him outstanding.

Barnabas didn’t earn a number of titles, but he produced many testimonies!

In fact, he is mentioned only thrice and that too in the Book of Acts.

The Bible says: “The memory of the righteous is blessed” Proverbs 10: 7 because in God’s eyes it’s not what society considers important that counts.

Barnabas is mentioned thrice in the book of Acts, concerning selling his land to help finance God’s work; Vouching for Paul’s character; Giving John Mark another chance.

A pastor at college graduates recognition day stood up and said: “One day you are going to die. When they lay you in the grave, are people going to recite the titles you earned, or will they talk about what a blessing you have been? Will you leave a mortuary card behind of how ‘important’ you were, or about people grieving the loss of the best friend they ever had?

Titles are good, but if it does come down to a choice between a title and a testimony – go for the testimony!

Pharaoh had the title, Moses had the testimony.
Nebuchadnezzar had the title, Daniel had the testimony.
Jezebel had the title, Elijah had the testimony.
Pilate had the title, but Jesus had the testimony.

It’s easy to have write-ups on Who’s Who, which will soon be forgotten, but loving acts you do that will be remembered.

“Only one life, ’twill soon be past…only what’s done for Christ will last!”

YOUR FAITH WILL HEAL YOU — Prophet Tony Mathias

Healing can come to us in various ways – through medicine, surgery, therapy, home remedies, fasting, and so on.

Every good and perfect gift comes from the hand of our Father in heaven.

Whenever healing comes, we need to give God praise for He is God of supernatural as well as natural healing.

In the New Testament, we read of how Jesus spoke to his disciples about their faith, using words such as “your faith, his faith, or their faith.” He spoke of “little and great faith.”

Jesus said to the Canaanite woman who asked him to heal her tormented daughter: “Woman, you have great faith! Your request is granted. Her daughter was healed from that very hour.” Matthew 15: 21-28

My faith is God’s gift to me. I am responsible for how I take care of it.

We read in the Bible that “faith is being sure of what we hope for and certain of what we do not see.” Hebrew 11: 1.

If we can see it, we cannot exercise faith for it because faith operates in the realm of things unseen.

You receive healing by faith BEFORE, not AFTER you see or feel changes taking place in your body.

Jesus says, “Have faith in God . . . I tell you the truth, if anyone says to this mountain, ‘Go throw yourself into the sea,’ and does not doubt in his heart, but believes that what he says will happen, it will be done for him. Therefore I tell you, whatever you ask for in prayer, believe that you have received it, and it will be yours.” Mark 11: 22-24

The faith that makes things happen comes to us as we hear or read the promises of God Romans 10: 17.

As you meditate on the promises of healing and continue to feed your faith, your faith will grow and the miracle of healing will come.

A Word From The Prophet’s Pen – March 2020 (Dose of Prophecy)

There have been things in your life difficult for you to understand, but because of the ministry of the Holy Spirit in your life, the complexities of those things have been unveiled to you.

The Holy Spirit is your Counsellor, your resident boss. You can always trust Him for insightful knowledge which gives skill, and understanding. One of His many blessings is insight, a sudden understanding and perception of a situation, or mystery.

Therefore, we are advised not to lean unto your own understanding but in all our ways acknowledge Him and He will direct our path.

The Father of Glory grants us a spirit of wisdom and revelation, insight into mysteries and secrets in the deep and intimate knowledge of Him

He also says – “I give you the power to decree what I declare and it shall come to pass.”

For we are His flock, the sheep of His pasture and His sheep ought to hear His voice.

When we decree what He has declared it shall be established and the light shall shine upon your path.

As we enter intimacy with Him we receive direction. What we see and hear from Him will manifest when we speak it forth.

In this special year 2020, the year of the mouth there is going to be a manifestation of decrees so that the Kingdom of God progresses and advances.

Would you be a part of it? You need to soak in scriptures and intimacy with God giving instant obedience.

As you call upon Him, He will answer you and show you great and mighty things you know not.

Be Blessed and Highly Favoured!
