Jesus, the Faithful Witness

Scripture uses the term “witness.” Probably the most well known text with the word is Acts 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.” The witnesses would testify of the only way of salvation for anyone and everyone in the entire world.

Witnesses present evidence. They tell the truth. Jesus Christ is the truth. Sin dooms everyone in the world, but Jesus is the Lord and Savior. This is God’s story told by His witnesses. The beginning of the final book of the Bible, The Revelation of Jesus Christ, calls Jesus first, “the faithful witness,” literally, “the witness the faithful.”

When Jesus came to this world, He testified to and of the truth. John 4:44 says, “Jesus himself testified.” John the Baptist speaks of Jesus in John 3:31-32, “He that cometh from above is above all: he that is of the earth is earthly, and speaketh of the earth: he that cometh from heaven is above all. And what he hath seen and heard, that he testifieth; and no man receiveth his testimony. ” Jesus literally came from heaven to earth, and what Jesus saw and heard, he testified. This is the only truth from heaven, given by God the Son Himself, who resided in heaven from eternity past.

You can trust Jesus' testimony. What Jesus wants is that we would receive His witness. He said in John 3:11, “We speak that we do know, and testify that we have seen; and ye receive not our witness.” Everything Jesus testifies is true. Let us all receive His witness.
