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

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
Currently we are not accepting written testimonies because we are in the labor intensive process of converting our old website to a much needed new one. However, we encourage born again believers to videotape their salvation testimonies and put them on YouTube. Once you have placed your salvation testimony on YouTube, you can send us a link to it if you would like. 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. Once you have done that, we may also contact you about our transcribing your testimony into print, and posting it on the Precious Testimonies website.
Anyone desiring to translate video testimonies into text that we are giving exposure to on our video channels must get direct permission from the testifier and not from Precious Testimonies, (and in many cases, as time goes by, we do not have current updated contact information to get hold of the testifiers, due to death; moving; etc.). Precious Testimonies does not own any testimony we publish, (other than our own personal testimonies of course), whether in video format or written format. They are the property of the testifier, and we believe it is only right that they have direct control over their own testimonies.
Important Video 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: 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.
