The Secret of Co-Witnessing With God

By Andy Piggott, 20 January 2012  

Welcome to my first blog post at Bethel Church New Zealand.  Hope you enjoy…

The secret of co-witnessing with God
Act 5:30  The God of our fathers raised up Jesus whom you murdered by hanging on a tree. 

Act 5:31  Him God has exalted to His right hand to be Prince and Savior, to give repentance to Israel and forgiveness of sins. 

Act 5:32  And we are His witnesses to these things, and so also is the Holy Spirit whom God has given to those who obey Him." 

The apostles stood before the religious leaders of Israel who were indignant that such crowds from Jerusalem and surrounding cities were thronging around Peter and his friends.  Peter was carrying such a realm of God on Him that the sick would be carried ahead of his path, so that the tangible atmosphere of God would cross their path, and up they jumped from their sick beds.  The manifestation of God was so strong that crowds not unlike what Jesus attracted would marvel at the great miracles and demonstrations of the Kingdom of God crashing into the lives of men.

Peter with great boldness of speech addresses his captives saying something like this...."you judged Jesus and murdered Him.  But God judged contrary, overruling your judgment and raised Him!  He is exalted Prince and Savior in Heaven.... and we are witnesses to these things.  But we're not witnessing alone.  There is a co-witness who is in agreement with all we testify.  That witness we are partnering with is the Holy Spirit....".  Not just the witness of man.  Not just the witness of God.  But the witness of man and the witness of God combined together to manifest the Kingdom of God in power and demonstration.  

This is the secret that attracted the masses of the people out of the comfort zones of their cities to come and experience the reality of God.

The secret is the co-witness.  Harmonizing with God in the proclamation and demonstration of the Christ of Glory.  Learn how to become an effective co-laborer.  Be discipled by the Presence.  

Witness to something that you need the Holy Spirit to co-witness with.  If its just life principles or 7 keys to success in nice Christian living then the Holy Spirit has no need to witness.  All you have is a single witness.  No, witness to something supernatural of the glory of Christ.  Then Holy Spirit can join in and demonstrate with miracles, signs, wonders and the tangible presence of God.

You can do it, He’s covenanted Himself to always be with you – stake your life on that truth and go out and be powerful.  Much love – Andy.
