Believers are Witnesses with the Spirit that Jesus is The Christ


Eyewitness testimony is the account a bystander gives in the courtroom, describing what they perceived happened during the specific incident under investigation. Ideally this recollection of events is detailed, however this is not always the case. In a court of law, the case that is most strong is when there is physical evidence along with eye witnesses.

In Luke 24, Jesus foretold or prophesied to the disciples that they would be witnesses of His in the world and that the Spirit would be sent to them.

45 Then he opened their minds so they could understand the Scriptures. 46 He told them, “This is what is written: The Messiah will suffer and rise from the dead on the third day, 47 and repentance for the forgiveness of sins will be preached in his name to all nations, beginning at Jerusalem. 48 You are witnesses of these things. 49 I am going to send you what my Father has promised; but stay in the city until you have been clothed with power from on high.”

Furthermore, Jesus states the same thing in John 15

26 “When the Advocate comes, whom I will send to you from the Father—the Spirit of truth who goes out from the Father—he will testify about me. 27 And you also must testify, for you have been with me from the beginning.

In Acts 1, Jesus, as He prepares for His ascension, tells the disciples  But you will receive power when the Holy Spirit comes on you; and you will be my witnesses in Jerusalem, and in all Judea and Samaria, and to the ends of the earth.”

In Acts 5, Peter confirms what Jesus said as he testified or witnessed about Jesus Christ.

31 God exalted him to his own right hand as Prince and Savior that he might bring Israel to repentance and forgive their sins. 32 We are witnesses of these things, and so is the Holy Spirit, whom God has given to those who obey him.” 33 When they heard this, they were furious and wanted to put them to death.

We see from these passages that Believers are Witnesses with the Spirit that Jesus is The Christ. The question is whether or not you are a true believer in Jesus as the Christ. I know that He saved my soul. I know that He changed my life. I once was blind but now I see. Are you a witness along with the Holy Spirit?
