Testimonies Sustain the Miraculous — A Quote by Bill Johnson in “Release the Power of Jesus”

“The sustained outpouring of the miraculous in which we have been privileged to participate is directly connected to the value we place on the testimony. It helps us to keep an awareness of God’s supernatural interventions, which in turn affects our conversations. Israel’s success was connected to what they thought about and what they talked about (see Josh. 1:8). We naturally reproduce whatever we dwell on.”

God Breaks His Rules — A Quote by Bill Johnson in “Release the Power of Jesus”

“Both Moses and David had become so set apart to God that He seemed to give them exemption from the Law that they might come closer into His presence… The Bible is confusing and contradictory if you think that everything God says and does is an expression of His highest will.”

God Trusts Us More and More as We Grow — A Quote by Bill Johnson in “Release the Power of Jesus”

“‘If you abide in Me, and My words abide in you, you will ask what you desire, and it shall be done for you.’ (See John 15:7.) It is foolish to think that He makes us robotic first and then offers us the promise, ‘Ask what you desire.’ He actually trusts those who become like His Son.”

Stories of God Draw Us to Intimacy with Him — A Quote by Bill Johnson in “Release the Power of Jesus”

“The purpose of God’s wondrous stories is to draw us into the passionate pursuit of more of His presence. His intention is to draw us to live under the influence of His presence rather than simply obeying His principles… Experiencing complete forgiveness and having our minds renewed results in deep affection and intimacy. This is the bedrock for ongoing Kingdom experiences.”

Jesus’ Purpose was not Merely Forgiveness, but Intimacy — A Quote by Bill Johnson in “Release the Power of Jesus”

“God’s highest purpose for the Cross was not merely to forgive us of sin. It was so that, by forgiving us on the basis of Christ’s blood, He could invite us back into an intimate family relationship with Him, our heavenly Father.”

Help People have an Encounter with God — A Quote by Bill Johnson in “Release the Power of Jesus”

“For at least 20 years, a driving force within me has been the conviction that I owe people an encounter with God. I owe them more than just a message filled with truth. Whatever I do for people must contain the opportunity for a divine encounter. If I am full of the Spirit, my preaching, service, and various forms of ministry will be more likely to bring people into such an encounter.”

Testimonies Challenge us not to Settle for Operating in Our Own Strength — A Quote by Bill Johnson in “Release the Power of Jesus”

“Without a constant awareness of God and the testimonies that speak of His nature, we will inevitably reduce our vision and ministry down to what we can accomplish with our gifts and strength. God is obviously the One who gave us these gifts, but they are like sails on a boat, designed to catch His wind. Without the wind of the Holy Spirit filling them, they have no eternal purpose. He comes to direct their course beyond the reach of human possibility. Without God these abilities have no effect on eternity.”

Testimony Releases Faith for God to Act — A Quote by Bill Johnson in “Release the Power of Jesus”

“‘For the testimony of Jesus is the spirit of prophecy.'”

“Testimonies prophesy God’s intent and nature to all who will hear… I have intentionally shared testimonies when I minister and have closely observed the results, which have been consistently stunning… When they heard the testimony of what God had done, the anointing on the testimony opened a realm of possibility. The atmosphere became pregnant with the opportunity for the miracle that had been described in the testimony to be duplicated. When they engaged their faith and stepped into that opportunity in the slightest measure, that possibility became reality.”

A Faithful Life Comes from Remembering All God Has Done — A Quote by Bill Johnson in “Release the Power of Jesus”

“Our ability to fulfill this calling and commission depends largely on one vital thing—remembering. Our capacity to remember what God has said and done in our lives and throughout history—the testimony—is one of the primary things that determine our success or failure in sustaining a Kingdom lifestyle of power for miracles.”

Think of Yourself as Influential for God — A Quote by Bill Johnson in “Release the Power of Jesus”

“The least person in the Holy Spirit-filled life has access to more in God than the greatest of all the Old Testament prophets. That is why each believer must think of him or herself as one who has influence as a leader.”
