Miracle Valley Sermon July 2nd 2023.

A witness is some one who appears in a court of law, to testify aoout what he saw happen, or heard  of an event and speaks and repeats the truth concerning the issue.

Therefore a witness cannot be a lier. A witness can choose to lie, very unfortunately.

Church goers are not witnesses of Christ. A witness must have a role which they perform  in the church, and take that  to sinners, who are in the church, or  those who are outside the  church, but do  not know God.

Read the following :

1:8 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 Judaea, and in Samaria, and unto the uttermost part of the earth.  (Acts 1 :8).

A witness of Christ must have spiritual power.

Jesus commissioned His disciples, which legacy was also passed unto His  future followers.

To commission is one thing,  to  receive the authority to carry  out the responsibility is important.

So before Jesus went back to heaven, after His resurrection, He promised to send the power.

That power will make His followers to be witnesses of what He came to the earth to do. They will have the power to preach, heal the sick and set free the oppressed, just as He did.

A witness will stand before people to testify.

– a witness cannot be a novice. A novice has limited knowledge.

– a witness must be assertive: He should be able to emphasise the Word, that is able to declare what he saw happen. He cannot witness what he did not see or brought to his knowledge

– a witness must be bold,  who  cannot be a quibbler.

– a witness must be steadfast on what he knows. He should not be there today and absent another day. He cannot be a backslidder to the truth.

-a witness must be painstaking. He must take time to finish what he is called to witness.

– a witness must never take bribe or be afraid to speak the truth.

– witness must be humble and not an angry person, who will abandon the field, because some one offended him. Do not forget that Jesus is coming back at any time from now.

Not every witness on earth will possess the above qualities. The witness of Jesus must be Godlike. Such people must be above board and accountable to God.


Reading from Acts Chapter 2:

2:1 And when the day of Pentecost was fully come, they were all with one accord in one place.

2:3 And there appeared unto them cloven tongues like as of fire, and it sat upon each of them.

2:4 And they were all filled with the Holy Ghost, and began to speak with other tongues, as the Spirit gave them utterance.

2:7 And they were all amazed and marvelled, saying one to another, Behold, are not all these which speak Galilaeans?

2:8 And how hear we every man in our own tongue, wherein we were born

2:9 Parthians, and Medes, and Elamites, and the dwellers in Mesopotamia, and in Judaea, and Cappadocia, in Pontus, and Asia,

2:10 Phrygia, and Pamphylia, in Egypt, and in the parts of Libya about Cyrene, and strangers of Rome, Jews and proselytes,

2:11 Cretes and Arabians, we do hear them speak in our tongues the wonderful works of God. (Act 2 : 1, 3 – 4, 7 – 11).


The disciples spoke in languages not their own to spread the good news of Jesus Christ. We must pray for the power and Jesus said the Holy Ghost is the Spirit from the Father.

There are  things  the Holy Ghost must do for us :

(1) The Holy Ghost is an Intercessor,( to intercede for the believer),

(2) an Advocate (to defend the believer in the courts (spiritual and earthly),

(3)  a Counsellor (an adviser in critical times).

Those who miss the Holy Ghost cannot function.

We must not forget that the Spirit of God comes with gifts (1 Cor, 12  :  6 -11) and fruit ( Gal. 5 : 22- 26  ), to enable the child of God play an active role of a  witness to Jesus.

We must pray for the anointing to come upon us Amen.

And very importantly, without the Spirit of God,  no man can see the Lord, because likes attract,  the opposite will repel.


Many people claim to have the Spirit of God, which is the power. A good number are fakes and have been anointed by satan to deceive the world with his lies. Such pretenders will not see God.

Such people know that God is not leading or using  them, they work in cover up, because of what they  are getting  for  their belly and the influence that  follows them. They will not give up, because of those material thngs. Jesus is coming o o o , I say to such pretenders in the faith.

Prayer :

Lord God, give Your children the grace to seek and have the true Holy Ghost coming at our own Pentecost. Oh,  that the called will be true witnesses. Amen.
