There is a Good type and Bad type of Witness
God can use anything and anyone, but the best help is a Spirit filled witness.

Mr 1:25 And Jesus rebuked him, saying, Hold thy peace, and come out of him.

Mr 1:34 And he healed many that were sick of divers diseases, and cast out many devils; and suffered not the devils to speak, because they knew him.

Mr 3:12 And he straitly charged them that they should not make him known.

Lu 4:41 And devils also came out of many, crying out, and saying, Thou art Christ the Son of God. And he rebuking them suffered them not to speak: for they knew that he was Christ.

The Wrong Kind of Witness
Jesus would not allow demons to witness of His Sonship.

1) They have no power of God: like a saved, spirit filled individual

2) They use no Scripture: like a saved, spirit filled individual

3) They have no results from their witness: like a saved, spirit filled individual

ILLUS

Raised in Catholic Church and School
Studied religion everyday and  was told
* Jesus was the Son of God
* Jesus was the Savior
* Jesus was the Redeemer

I knew all of this but it meant nothing to me until I heard it from a saved individual.

The Right Kind of Witness
Jesus encouraged His disciple, Peter, to witness in His behalf 

Mt 16:13 When Jesus came into the coasts of Caesarea Philippi, he asked his disciples, saying, Whom do men say that I the Son of man am?

14 And they said, Some say that thou art John the Baptist: some, Elias; and others, Jeremias, or one of the prophets.

15 He saith unto them, But whom say ye that I am?

16 And Simon Peter answered and said, Thou art the Christ, the Son of the living God.

17 And Jesus answered and said unto him, Blessed art thou, Simon Barjona: for flesh and blood hath not revealed it unto thee, but my Father which is in heaven.

Peter got the right answer about who Jesus was through Spirit revelation form a Spirit filled individual, Jesus.

 Spirit filled is not being Charismatic or Pentecostal
