"God also bearing witness both with signs and wonders, with various miracles, and gifts of the Holy Spirit…" (Heb. 2:4 NKJ).

Just when you feel your witnessing is ineffective, your testimony discredited, your words falling on deaf ears, the Lord comes to add His testimony and witness to yours. This action gives instant credibility to your Christian witness.

The Greek word translated bearing witness here is a triple compound: sunepimartureo (soo-ep-ee-mar-too-reh'o). It is composed of three elements: sun ("alongside"), epi ("in addition to"), and martureo ("to witness and testify"). Thus this verse says that if you will give your testimony to an unbelieving world, the Lord will come alongside and add His witness and testimony to yours.

When the Lord bears witness, it will be with signs, wonders, diverse miracles, and gifts of the Holy Spirit. Supernatural confirmation is thus promised you.

In the original Greek, the expression gifts is merismos (mer-is-mos') which is defined as "distribution, division, portion." We can be in a position where the Lord will distribute to us a share of His miraculous and supernatural power. At conversion, He gives each of us a measure of faith. John 3:34 indicates that the Holy Spirit comes without measure, but apparently His gifts are apportioned and measured out individually as the Lord sees fit.

This verse reassures us that if we will give our testimony, the Lord will come and corroborate our witness by distributions of the Holy Spirit's ministry. Have you claimed your share? If not, do so right away!
