From the Wesley explanation:

Wesley's Explanatory Notes

Wesley's exegesis reads in part:
"The Father—Who clearly testified of the Son, both at His baptism and at His transfiguration. The Word—Who testified of Himself on many occasions, while He was on earth; and again, with still greater solemnity, after His ascension into heaven (Rev. 1:5; 19:13). And the Spirit—Whose testimony was added chiefly after His glorification (1 John 2:27; John 15:26; Acts 5:32; Rom. 8:16).

Revelation 1:5 (AV)
And from Jesus Christ,
who is the faithful witness, and the first begotten of the dead,
and the prince of the kings of the earth.
Unto him that loved us,
and washed us from our sins in his own blood,

Revelation 19:11-13 (AV)
And I saw heaven opened, and behold a white horse; and he that sat upon him was called Faithful and True, and in righteousness he doth judge and make war. His eyes were as a flame of fire, and on his head were many crowns; and he had a name written, that no man knew, but he himself. And he was clothed with a vesture dipped in blood: and his name is called The Word of God.


1 John 2:27 (AV)
But the anointing which ye have received of him abideth in you,
and ye need not that any man teach you:
but as the same anointing teacheth you of all things,
and is truth, and is no lie,
and even as it hath taught you,
ye shall abide in him.

John 15:26 (AV)
But when the Comforter is come,
whom I will send unto you from the Father,
even the Spirit of truth, which proceedeth from the Father,
he shall testify of me:

Acts 5:32 (AV)
And we are his witnesses of these things;
and so is also the Holy Ghost, whom God hath given to them that obey him.

Romans 8:16 (AV)
The Spirit itself beareth witness with our spirit, that we are the children of God:
