‘A lawyer was in the audience, so I asked him what a testimony was supposed to be. “The truth” he quickly replied! That by the way, is why lawyers are paid to probe, investigate, test and challenge any testimony in legal proceedings. They are looking for false testimonies.
However, it is just one testimony that concerns us today. A true testimony which many academics, scientists, church leaders and pew sitters sadly dismiss. It’s been labelled a testimony right from its origin. Not the testimony of man but of the Creator God. Remember the Ten Commandments? The record reports “God gave Moses, when he had finished speaking with him on Mount Sinai, the two tablets of the testimony, tablets of stone, written with the finger of God”. (Exodus 31:18) After the affair of the golden calf Moses smashed the first set of the tablets in anger. God then told Moses “Cut for yourself two tablets of stone like the first, and I will write on the tablets the words that were on the first tablets, which you broke.” (Exodus 34:1) After Moses spent a second time with God on the mountain, he came down the mountain “with the two tablets of the testimony”. (Exodus 34:29)
Nowhere does the Bible treat the Ten Commandments as anything but the actual Word or Testimony of the Lord, e.g. at the giving of the first set we read “God spoke all these words”. (Exodus 20:11) In his address to the people of Israel recorded in Deuteronomy, Moses reminded them: “And the Lord gave me the two tablets of stone written with the finger of God, and on them were all the words that the Lord had spoken with you on the mountain out of the midst of the fire on the day of the assembly.” (Deuteronomy 9:10)
As our lawyer friend addresses, if any part of a written or spoken testimony is not true, it is invalid. Including in this case the witness rule in the courts … ’you shall not bear false testimony’. (Ex 20:16) Note well that the Creator Christ testified in the commandments He made the world in six days. So all of those leaders of academia, theology or politics who dismiss the six days, actually have moved to dismiss all God’s commandments. No wonder they move on to legislate the mass murder of infants, block Gender Menders, promote BLM destruction, push climate lies and cash in on Covid-10 controls. Note well – you will all give eternal account to the One who is truth, for He cannot lie. He did make the heavens and the earth in just six days and His moral authority is based on that. You portray Christ any other way and you will be held accountable for calling him a liar – someone who gave false testimony, while taking the moral high ground in labelling false testimony a grievous sin.
Moses’ successor Joshua challenged the people to “… fear the Lord and serve him …. ‘choose this day whom you will serve’ … the gods of this world or the real God … But as for me and my house, we will serve the Lord.” (Joshua 24:14-15)’
