Jesus Did It!
Founder, Precious Testimonies Evangelistic Ministries
It is extremely valuable to God! Your testimony is a divine spiritual seed of Jesus Christ imparted to OTHERS!
(If you need revelation of that, please take the time to listen to the first 15 minutes of this video clip. This writing can also help: http://www.precious-testimonies.com/Exhortations/u-z/WordsOfOurTestimony.htm ).
God uses born again testimonies to plant and water seeds of salvation in others! They are divine Godly seeds He uses to plant into the heart's of the unsaved! God also uses them to impart hope and encouragement and spiritual insights to others.
Here is a short video clip on the importance of sharing your testimony: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=cnG88Nj6Mio
Here is a short video clip demonstrating HOW to wisely share our testimony: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=smXkSsNs5DU
PLUS - unsaved people can disagree about what a person believes about the Holy Bible ... but they can't DENY the change that God has brought about in your life! You are God's "trophy," dear son or daughter of the living God. Don't let the devil trick you into putting your testimony under a bushel basket - hidden - so it is hard to find.
God has given true born again Christians clear marching orders as to what He desires of them regarding their born again - salvation - testimonies. In accordance with Psalm 96:3 ... God desires that we purpose to declare God's glory among the nations! How best can we do that? Let God use our testimony every way we can think of! Give it to Him to use! It's not yours to keep hidden!
We read in the Bible of Jesus delivering/healing the possessed Gadarene demoniac in Mark 5:1-20. Being freed from numerous demons, the man was so thankful for his deliverance/healing that he wanted to follow Jesus the rest of his life, and understandably so. Yet Jesus didn't allow it. Rather, here is what Jesus told the man:
"Go home to your friends, and tell them what great things the Lord has done for you, and how He has had compassion on you."
In other words, Jesus was telling him to go share his testimony to all the unsaved people in his hometown community. WHY? Because the Holy Spirit planned on using this man to bring the liberating kingdom light and truth of Jesus Christ to his spiritually dark community.
There are people who will listen to your testimony around the WORLD via the Internet ... but God can't use it if you don't FIRST give it to Him to use.
Our Jesus glorifying testimony is not ours to stay silent about. Here's a short video clip highlighting that reality: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=OyYPk4o8xFA

OUR TESTIMONY PUBLISHING GUIDELINES
Please take note: We do NOT obligate ourselves to publish someone's testimony just because they send it to us. (This applies to video testimonies as well). Our reason for doing so is because some testifiers simply are not that gifted initially (BUT THEY CAN LEARN!) in writing their testimony with IMPACT. [Our purpose is to try to help reach the lost. Write your testimony in a way as much as possible the lost can IDENTIFY with, otherwise most aren't going to read it or listen to it. In other words, Do NOT write your testimony to the "church choir." Stay away from "religious" words as much as possible. Some scripture is fine, but it can be overdone]. Furthermore - we reserve the right to edit testimonies, to try to make them MORE impacting. Nevertheless, we will not publish an edited written testimony without the testifier first having the opportunity to read over it and give us their approval to publish their testimony.
VIDEO Testimonies: We encourage born again believers to videotape their salvation testimonies and put them on YouTube. Again - God can't use YOUR testimony to ministers to others until you FIRST give it to Him to use. Once you have placed your salvation testimony on YouTube, be HIGHLY ENCOURAGED to send us a link to it. We'll pray about giving it ADDITIONAL exposure on the Precious Testimonies YouTube Channel: https://www.youtube.com/user/PreciousTestimonies/videos?sort=dd&tag_id=&shelf_index=0&view=0, and let you know if we feel to give it additional exposure. If you don't hear back from us, assume we don't feel to use it. Following is most likely the reason/s why ...
Important Tips: DON'T use background music on your YouTube clip. Most of the time music is a distraction to the listener. Try to get the best sound you can -- keeping distracting background noise at a minimum. Use good lighting so people can clearly see your face. As stated above ... your audience is the UNSAVED. Share in a way the unsaved can IDENTIFY with. If you don't capture their attention within about the first 30 seconds of what you are sharing, most likely they won't listen to the rest of your testimony. Which leads to the TITLE of your testimony. Use catchy words to attract your audience. As an example: "My Salvation Testimony - By: Joe Blow" does absolutely zip-zero-nada to capture the attention of an unsaved person. "Let Me Tell You How Frustrated I was with God! - By: Joe Blow" will get listened to 1,000+ times MORE!
Whether words written or spoken, we can't encourage testifiers enough to stay AWAY from doctrinal issues that are clearly divisive when sharing their testimonies.
This needs to be repeated, if you want Precious Testimonies giving exposure to your testimony. YOUR AUDIENCE IS THE UNSAVED - NOT TO THE CHRISTIAN COMMUNITY! When your testimony is shared to the UNSAVED community ... God will use it as He wills to bless Christians who need some hope and encouragement.
Feel free to ask any questions you may have before sending us your testimony as well.

Following are some PROFOUND words by Evangelist Bill Keller that every Christian should soberly take to heart ... especially in regards to making your testimony available for God to use as He wills.
"If you really think about it, what an HONOR it is to have the God of the Universe, the Creator of all things, to give us the opportunity to serve Him! There is NO GREATER HONOR in this life. To serve God is not only our duty, but a privilege that He gives us that we should never take for granted. While there are many things that we can do in our life that can have a profound effect on this world, it is ONLY the things that we do for God that will have a profound effect on eternity! Let me repeat this statement, because it is very deep. While there are many things that we can do in our life that can have a profound effect on this world, it is ONLY the things that we do for God that will have a profound effect on eternity!
"That leads me to the subject of rewards. The Bible clearly speaks of "rewards" for our faithful service to God. What these "rewards" are, I have no idea. However, here is what I do know. God is the giver of all good and perfect things. God loves us so much, that He gave us His very best when He gave us Jesus to die for our sins so that we might be reconciled back to Him. Whatever comes from God is just not great, it is the BEST! GOD IS THE AUTHOR OF THE BLESSING! The Bible does not spell out what these "rewards" for our faithful service are, but since they come from God, they must be better than anything that we could think of!
"Sadly however, many in service to God, decide not to wait for their Heavenly rewards, and instead settle for whatever little this temporary world that we live in can offer. That is like going through the McDonalds drive through for dinner, instead of waiting to sit down to a 7 course feast. ANY TIME THAT WE SETTLE FOR THE THINGS OF THIS TEMPORARY WORLD OVER WHAT GOD OFFERS, WE HAVE SETTLED FOR THE WORST, WHILE WE COULD HAVE HAD THE BEST! This is not a condemnation on having nice things, on having a comfortable life while we are on this journey. However, some of God's choice servants have decided that they would rather have the "little" that they can get now, instead of waiting for the "much" that God has promised.' -- (Bill Keller, Evangelist)
