Daniel 4:2 KJV
I thought it good to shew the signs and wonders that the high God hath wrought toward me.
Before you doubt, why don’t you put your faith to work instead? Do not deny the power of the most high God.
Hosea 4:6 KJV
“My people are destroyed for lack of knowledge: because thou hast rejected knowledge, I will also reject thee, that thou shalt be no priest to me: seeing thou hast forgotten the law of thy God, I will also forget thy children.”
Testimonies are a prove of the existence of God and his wonder working power.
A testimony is a prove of God’s power and mercies.
Testimonies are the manifestation of God’s glory.
Testimonies are generated from miracles, signs and wonders wroughted from God through his special vessels of which, His precious son, Jesus Christ was one of such personalities.
Revelation 12:11 KJV
“And they overcame him by the blood of the Lamb, and by the word of their testimony; and they loved not their lives unto the death.”
John 9:3-4 KJV
Jesus answered, Neither hath this man sinned, nor his parents: but that the works of God should be made manifest in him.  I must work the works of him that sent me, while it is day: the night cometh, when no man can work.
Your testimony is the story of your encounter with God and what role He has played throughout your life.”
“What God is bringing you through at this very moment will be the testimony that will bring someone else through. No mess, no message.” John 9:3-4
Biblical Instances of Testimonies Duplicating
Scripture reveals how Jesus Christ visited Gadara to heal one single person yet multitude had their miracles.
Mark 5:1-2 KJV
And they came over unto the other side of the sea, into the country of the Gadarenes.  And when he was come out of the ship, immediately there met him out of the tombs a man with an unclean spirit.
The mad man of Gadara – Mark 5:2-19
Mark 5:18-19 KJV “…devil o prayed him that he might be with him.  Howbeit Jesus suffered him not, but saith unto him, Go home to thy friends, and tell them how great things the Lord hath done for thee, and hath had compassion on thee.”
In Mark 5:20, we understand how the healed Gadarene man went publishing the great things Jesus had done for him.
Mark 5:19-20 KJV
 And he departed, and began to publish in Decapolis how great things Jesus had done for him: and all men did marvel.
As much as he testified of the goodness of God, the humble ones believed and proved Jesus by calling on him to attend to them.
Mark 5:28 KJV “For she said, If I may touch but his clothes, I shall be whole.”
Jarius, the ruler of a synagogue.
Mark 5:21-23 KJV
And when Jesus was passed over again by ship unto the other side, much people gathered unto him: and he was nigh unto the sea.  And, behold, there cometh one of the rulers of the synagogue, Jairus by name; and when he saw him, he fell at his feet,  And besought him greatly, saying, My little daughter lieth at the point of death: I pray thee, come and lay thy hands on her, that she may be healed; and she shall live.
The Woman with the issue of blood
Mark 5:25-29 KJV
 And a certain woman, which had an issue of blood twelve years,  And had suffered many things of many physicians, and had spent all that she had, and was nothing bettered, but rather grew worse,  When she had heard of Jesus, came in the press behind, and touched his garment.  For she said, If I may touch but his clothes, I shall be whole.  And straightway the fountain of her blood was dried up; and she felt in her body that she was healed of that plague.
Mark 5:28,34 KJV
For she said, If I may touch but his clothes, I shall be whole.
And he said unto her, Daughter, thy faith hath made thee whole; go in peace, and be whole of thy plague.
The above testimonies clearly cut out how Jesus Christ healed and delivered several because the mad man of Gadara shared his testimony which gave them hope, boosted their faith, psyching their mind it is possible with God, so did the other Testifier held to Christ to be saved through healing.
Personal Instance a Testimony Duplicated in my Life
In October, 2022, one of our sunday services was dubbed by my spiritual father, Rev. Dr. Kwadwo Bempah(Phd) Covenant Day of Favour.
During the service, a lady testified of the series of favour she enjoyed from her boss at work, instantly whiles she was sharing the testimony, instantly I shouted I tap and further made some declarations I was led by the Precious Holy Spirit.
After service I climbed up to do some follow up calls and my teaching assistant duties then in the churches foundation school.
Upon climbing up, I met her at the first floor and bowed my head,with a smile I told her to bless me with that favour she carries, without hesitation, she touched me and I walked away.
To the Glory of God Almighty to date, I have being experiencing a double dimension favor unlinke it was early on.
So obvious it was, this mysterious step I took led me on to a different dimension of favour. James 4:5-7, 10
