Ye are my witnesses saith the Lord and my servant whom I have chosen Is. 43. 10
Â“Ye are my witnesses, saith the Lord, and my servant whom I have chosen” Is. 43. 10
At no time in the history of the world has God left Himself without witness as to His own existence, His power, and providence [Acts. 14.17). His works bear witness (Rom. 1.19,20). His Word witnesses (Jn. 5.39). His ancient people were, and now in their dispersion still are His witnesses. Above all, Christ is “the faithful and true witness” (Rev. 1.5). He was chosen, incarnate, anointed, lived, laboured, died, and rose again as such. He ascended to heaven, and sent the Holy Spirit to bear witness of His exaltation and glory. The apostle, and other early disciples, bore the most convincing witness for God both by their life and death; and Christians of all ages and places have faithfully borne witness .gainst sin and error, and in defence of holiness and truth. Such witnesses are God’s people now. They are God’s light to enlighten others. They are His salt to permeate and season others. They have the witness of the Spirit in themselves, and bear witness of what they know and enjoy.
