It Only Takes Two Witnesses

In the Senate there are currently two Christians.  This may seem bleak to some but to God that is all He needs because in Deuteronomy 19:15 (NIV), it states,

One witness is not enough to convict anyone accused of any crime or offense they may have committed. A matter must be established by the testimony of two or three witnesses.

Jesus talks of them in Matthew 18:16 (NIV), “but if they will not listen, take one or two others along, so that ‘every matter may be established by the testimony of two or three witnesses.’”

Don’t give up, Christians in the Senate!  God has your back. Proverbs 26:28 (NIV) tells us that, “a lying tongue hates those it hurts, and a flattering mouth works ruin.”  A Cry for Justice, cites this one factor when identifying abusers,“Does this person seem to feel unjustifiably entitled?” (A Cry For Justice, Feb 2013)  The abuser often uses abusive language.  In terms of vagueness and contradictions, the article goes on to read:

If I discern vagueness or contradictions in the person’s story, I ask them to clarify. Usually in their clarification I can start to tell whether they are being deliberately (evasively) vague or whether their vagueness comes from something like PTSD, or can simply be explained by the fact that they haven’t told this story to many people who really want to listen, so they may be gushing and stumbling over themselves because the top has just come off the pressure cooker.

Don’t be afraid, little flock.  Jesus has said, “So don’t be afraid; you are worth more than many sparrows,” (Matthew 10:31 NIV).  The mountains are singing, can you hear them?  Isaiah 44:23 (NIV)

Sing for joy, you heavens, for the Lord has done this; shout aloud, you earth beneath. Burst into song, you mountains, you forests and all your trees, for the Lord has redeemed Jacob, he displays his glory in Israel.

Jesus said, “So do not be afraid of them, for there is nothing concealed that will not be disclosed, or hidden that will not be made known” (Matthew 10:26 NIV).  In John 5:17 (NIV), Jesus says, “My Father is always at his work to this very day, and I too am working.”
