Maintain your Testimony for Jesus!
The New Living Translation has unique wording at the end of Rev. 12:17 which should be a precept for us (a little rule to live by). “And the dragon (Satan) was angry at the woman (Israel) and declared war against the rest of her children (Tribulation Saints)—all who keep God's commandments and maintain their testimony for Jesus.”
Wow! If there ever was a time when Christians need to “maintain their testimony for Jesus” it’s right now! Even though this commendation is offered prophetically to the Tribulation Saints, now is the time for us to begin! Maintain your testimony for Jesus!
If a person never maintains their vehicle, yet that vehicle continues to run; that is a testimony only to the quality of the car and the grace of God. Likewise, the fact that the gospel of Jesus continues to thrive in spite of our negligence is a testimony to the quality of His endless life; not the quality of our Christianity. We can do better! Maintain your testimony for Jesus!
