WHO IS A WITNESS?• One who has knowledge about a matter; one who sees an event happening.• A WITNESS is a validator of a claim• a witness is one who provides testimonial evidence of what he/she claims to know.• The primary responsibility of a believer is to be a witness within a given GEOGRAPHY.• Your life finds joy and fulfillment when everything you do is tied to Kingdom come.• The primary assignment of a believer is to be witnesses within all aspects of life. According to scripture, everything in a believer’s life must synergise to one goal-being a witness; revealing Jesus and bringing glory to His Name. • The condition to secure God's commitment is that behind the desire of all activity, there must be a revelation and motivation to be a witness; a validator of His Word.• God's interest is not for christians alone; it is for all men.• The devil has created systems and structures to ensure the Lordship of Christ is not understood and enthroned over all spheres of life.

The training process of a witness is a hard training. To be used by God in this end time, you must have a testament of waiting and staying. Be patient during your training process, God is birthing an evidence in you. Do not corrupt the power of the testimony awaiting you with impatience. Behind every glory, there is a story. The story is what makes the glory desirable.Don't rush seasons in your life. There are training processes you can't pray your way out of, you must only pray for the grace to pass through them. Always discern the mystery behind the activities you are involved with. God is a master of using situations to shift you into your prophetic destiny. Every time you have played your part by walking in obedience and truth yet things don't seem to go right, be patient, God is preparing evidence behind the scenes to establish you as a witness. Every time your season of manifestation seems to be delayed, be careful and discern; Remain steadfast in faith until you prevail.
