Testimony described.

Rev 12:11,17
11And 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.
17And the dragon was wroth with the woman, and went to make war with the remnant of her seed, which keep the commandments of God, and have the testimony of Jesus Christ.

Twice, testimony was mentioned here. Just what is a testimony?

In http://www.dictionary.com

2. evidence in support of a fact or statement; proof. 3. open declaration or profession, as of faith. 4. Usually, testimonies. the precepts of God. 5. the Decalogue as inscribed on the two tables of the law, or the ark in which the tables were kept. Ex. 16:34; 25:16.

#2, will be likened to share what Christ is in your life. It can be – BC – Before Christ, the life
– IC – In Christ, changes
– Reason why u want Christ
– Reason why Christ is real to you
– Bible verses who which spoke to u, etc

#3, profession of Faith. Crystal Clear.

#4,5, Interesting. Let’s see what the verses refers to
“As the LORD commanded Moses, so Aaron laid it up before the Testimony, to be kept.” (Exodus 16:34).
“And thou shalt put into the ark the testimony which I shall give thee.” (Exodus 25:16).

If I may add, “The law of the LORD is perfect, converting the soul: the testimony of the LORD is sure, making wise the simple.” (Psalm 19:7).

Looks like the testimony is the law/command of God too.

Interesting. Testimony,
