Revelation 19 : 10 And I fell at his feet to worship him. And he said unto me, See thou do it not: I am thy fellowservant, and of thy brethren that have the testimony of Jesus: worship God: for the testimony of Jesus is the spirit of prophecy.
Qestion Answer Who is "I" in the text? John, he is writing what he saw.
Who is talking to him? An angel of God. "fellowservant"
What is "testimony of Jesus? The spirit of prophecy.
Revelation 12 : 17 And 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.
Translated- And the "devil" was exceedingly angry with the church, and went to make war with the members of "the" church, which keep the commandments of God, and have the spirit of prophecy.
Out of the stem of David's family will grow a shoot-yes, a new Branch bearing fruit from the old root. And the Spirit of the Lord will rest on him-the Spirit of wisdom, revelation and understanding, the Spirit of counsel and might, the Spirit of knowledge and the fear of the Lord. He will delight in obeying the Lord. He will never judge by appearance, false evidence, or hearsay. He will defend the poor and the exploited.
Terms we use to describe GOD are what we do to understand. We use things we can see in this realm, we only have words. He is THE KING, Kings have a throne. His throne is where HE rules from by speaking just like a king on earth, the king does not have to move to make things happen, he just talks and it is done. The Spirits are them that wait upon Him and execute His commands. They are the ones listed, they wait upon Him as servants. Best way I can describe the invisible One.
The spirit of prophecy then is the testimony of Jesus.
But what is that?
Many think that the testimony of Jesus is the words that He spoke while on earth. but the definition of testimony is; a solemn attestation as to the truth of a matter. As always, this leads to another question-
What is the "matter" that Jesus would attest to? to keep on page- as I do not want a bunch of interpretation, this matter is exposed in prophecy as to the matter that Jesus would attest to.
In other words it will be the story of Jesus(son of man) Christ(son of God) and his role in heaven and on earth. The battle between good and evil(as it started in heaven and moved to earth) this testimony has been recorded by a prophet.
