Joshua 4:4-7 Then Joshua called the twelve men, whom he had prepared of the children of Israel, out of every tribe a man: And Joshua said unto them, Pass over before the ark of the Lord your God into the midst of the Jordon, and take you up every man of you a stone upon his shoulder, according unto the number of the tribes of the children of Israel:
That this may be a sign among you, that when your children ask their fathers in time to come, saying, What mean ye by these stones?
Then you shall answer them, That the waters of Jordan were cut off before the ark of the covenant of the Lord; when it passed over Jordon, the waters of Jordon were cut off: and these stones shall be for a memorial unto the children of Isreal for ever.
God dried up the Jordon so His people could cross it on dry land. He instructed them not to forget what He had done and build a memorial with stones to remind future generations that passed that way of the miracle God did drying up the Jordon. He also instructed them to talk about this miracle to share it with future generations.
The word Testimony in Hebrew means "Do Again" When you talk about the past miracles, the power is released again for Future Miracles!
Just as the 12 Stones were a memorial to God, each Chapter in a Real Life Stories Christian Testimony book is a memorial to God! When people read these books, the stories, the miracles, the healings, the salvations are shared over and over again setting the stage for a new Testimony, a new "Do Again" , a new Miracle!
God wants us all, to rehearse our past Victories in Him to help others come into New Victories in Him!
Rev. 12 :11 And they overcame him by the blood of the Lamb, and by the word of their Testimony; and they loved not their lives unto death.
If placed in God's hands Your testimony can be used to give someone else a Testimony!
