Introduction

That the invisible attributes of God are seen in all things created, seen and unseen, shows that God is mindful in His purpose and plan for man who is the cap of His creation.
Most definitely, we are living in the age of the last days and it is very important to pay accurate attention to the things that God is prompting in the earth. For all plans, prophecies and words of God as they concern the earth will not go unaccomplished. They will all be fulfilled in time and in their seasons. But care must be taken to understand that this age we are in right now is coming to an end and no matter what man does, God must fold up all things to make room for the Kingdom of His Son.

In Him we live
Life and living have different definitions for different people, and those differences create diverse responses to life for each man. Some think and believe that to be alive or to live is to fully be engrossed in all that life offers for the pleasure of the body. Some think and believe that to be alive is to create situations that take life away from others. But in whatever form it comes, no one has fully lived, if all they lived for is that which is passing away on the earth or that which only magnified their fallen nature.

The theory of and the push for revival is strong within the circle of Christianity. Revival is spoken of with such charisma and strength to the point that whoever takes a different point of view concerning revival is seen as not being hungry for the manifestation of Spirit. But the simple truth is that revival is just another lie in the pack of lies by which many will be deceived in the days ahead. We are in the third day of the Lord Jesus and the seventh day of God the Father and the promise of the third day expression is not that of revival, but that of being raised up to live in the sight of God. See what Hosea 6:2 says “After two days He will revive us; On the third day He will raise us up, That we may live in His sight.” This is clear enough for anyone who is open in their heart for the true spirit of the manifestation of the sons of God. Have you ever wondered what revival really means, apart from the pseudo mystery we have put around it? To revive simple means to give life to something that is dying or dead. But this is not what the body of Christ is meant to be. She is not clothed in the righteousness and the beauty of her husband who is the Lord of glory just to be a victim of many deaths and many revivals for another day of death. That we keep having different eras of revival that come and go and yet still are waiting for more to come, shows you it is not what God really wants for the body of Christ. In Him we live is not talking about revival or goose bumps that come when we manage to get a hold of a feeling of “Spirit” after a prayer session. It is talking about perpetual living in the sight of God and never outside of it. That the anti Christ will manifest in the earth with amazing high levels of lying wonders and power to deceive simply shows you that the end time for the body of Christ is not for power shows or any such thing that the church has enjoyed before and was corrupted by. The end time for the sons of God who truly know their Father will take a different approach from the manifestation of power that it has always been. He who understands this in truth will be saved from the gross darkness that is coming on the earth. For truth is light and light is God and he who walks in the truth of God will not walk in darkness.

In Him we move
Scripture says that “for prophecy never came by the will of man, but holy men of God spoke as they were moved by the Holy Spirit.” (2 Pet 1:21) The movement of the Spirit ties directly to whatever is in the mind of God that must find expression on the earth. Meaning that a man moves in Him if he is aligned with the movement of the Spirit of God in answer to that which the counsel of the mind of God has finished in Himself and then released to the earth. For instance, in the beginning, before anything was created and while the mind of God was still in counsel, in a sense, the Spirit of God hovered or moved over the surface of the deep waiting for when the holy voice of God will give utterance for the manifestation of that which is in the mind of God. This is how we move in Him. To move is to watch over the mind and the counsel of God while we wait for the release of the word for manifestation. God has had plans for man and the entire creation from before the foundation of the earth but the issue He has always had is that there are no faithful men who will watch over or move over or take a position to incubate that which He has in mind in order to bring them to manifestation just as He wants it. Of Moses it is said that he was faithful in all of God’s house. Imagine just one man faithful in the midst of about three million people who came out of Egypt as God’s house. And in the same way so it will be in the coming days of the end time. Few men will be faithful in the house of God who are not running after lying wonders but who are watching over the mind of God even as He unfolds Himself on the earth.

In Him we have our being
We were never created to be mere men who are subjected to death, corruption and failure on earth. We were created right in the mind of God as expressions of Himself on the earth. The first man failed to realize this and subjected every man that has walked on this earth to the same failure, except when God finds one that is faithful in all His house to carry out His mind. Imagine David praying that he would dwell in the temple of Lord forever. But the question is this? What exactly or Who exactly is this temple of the Lord that he so wanted to live in? According to Revelation 21, the temple of the Lord is both God the Father and the Lord Jesus the Lamb of God. Meaning that our habitation is not the skin we have, the home we dwell in, nor is it the country we live in, but our habitation which we live in, move in and have our being in is GOD. That’s all. The state of “being” is not just a state of existence, but a state of “continuous be-in-God” or “becoming one with God” which has always been the original intention of God from before the foundation of the earth. There is a boldness that is required to come behind the veil, and that is grace and mercy. But behind the veil is not about what we get, but about who we become when we face Him face to face. We can only be like Him when we meet Him. Amen.
The coming days will not be palatable for those who have not learnt to have God as their habitation. For men will see wonders and terrible signs on the earth that will make them think that finally revival or the manifestation of God has come, but this will not be by God but by the power of the Dragon who will manifest himself as God permits through the man of sin the anti Christ. Whoever has not learnt to receive the truth of the life of God in their hearts and to live by it will believe the lie and will fall for the treachery of the Dragon. For John the beloved was warned not to marvel at the beauty and the grandiose of the woman on the red beast, for only those whose names are not written in the Lamb’s Book of Life will marvel and by that be carried away by the lying wonders that will fill the earth a short while from now.

We shall all know Him
God the Father who has now come to manifest Himself as God on the earth shall no longer be seen as ‘the UNKNOWN GOD’, but shall be known by all, for the knowledge of Him shall cover the entire earth as water covers the sea. For even those that say there is no God shall certainly know that it is God Who rules over the nations of the earth.
Of a truth, the entire world is facing the reality of Daniel 12:4, with the exponential growth in knowledge of science and in all fields of study, but all this knowledge will fade away, just as the men that found them will also fade away. We must remember that, that which Daniel was told to seal in the book is meant for this age of increased knowledge on the earth. Meaning that if physical knowledge of science has increased according to that word of prophecy, then much more true shall be the increase and the filling of the earth with knowledge of the Lord, which in itself is life eternal. (See John 17:3)

In conclusion
When all things are faded away, when prophecies are all fulfilled, when mysteries and all knowledge have been exhausted then the only things that will remain will be Faith, Hope and Love. And this love is the love for the Father which creates perfection in a man. The last mystery to be accomplished is the mystery of godliness in which God is fully manifested in man in real time here on earth, which is also the destruction of flesh and death. Meaning, in these days, true sons will not run after gifts that puff up but after loving God and the hope of that which is not seen.
When God the Father “takes His presence, the Spirit that restrains away from the earth” and men are left to themselves, and in the hand of the man of sin, the only anchor that the sons of God will have is faith, hope and love for God. There will be so much power released in this age that men and the church will attribute its pursuit and usage as revival from God. It’s a delusion and the believing of a lie. For many will marvel after the signs and the wonders that will fill the entire earth from the man of sin, but will attribute these things to God and thus be deceived. (See 2 Thessalonians 2:9-11 Rev 17:6-8)
For the true power will lie with the sons of God who have been perfected in love and whose anchor is hope and faith. Nothing of this world matters to them anymore. Their love for God is contained in two dimensions: the goodness and the severity of God. For by goodness they will reveal the majestic love of the Father and by severity, they will also reveal the Judgment of the Father. This is the way of the two witnesses of God that will be revealed on the earth. (See Revelation 11:1-14)
These Overcomers, or sons of God who are the expression of the two witnesses, will not run around demonstrating power and anointing as it were, their power will be in their submission to their cross for the love of God. Hope, Faith and Love, by these three shall they be known as the true disciples of Jesus. For they will overcome the enemy by the blood of the Lamb of God, the word of their testimony in Christ and they will not love their lives unto death for they are already nailed to their cross of death.

To you dear Overcomer are these words written. Know for sure that you will be persecuted in the coming days, for this is your cross and your path to eternal oneness with Him, Christ, Who has gone ahead of you. Also, many of you have direct assignments to complete the unfinished faith of many saints that have gone ahead (See Hebrews 11:39-40). If you are among such, may God keep you till you finish and bring joy to the hearts of those saints you represent now on earth. And if you do not know your assignment as it relates to the finishing of the faith of the saints gone past, God the Father by His mercy will reveal this to you also.

God bless you. From your brother.

PRAYER
God our Father, we make room in our lives for You to come and manifest Yourself as God, so that creation, men and the nations of the earth will know that You are God. We give You thanks always. In Your Son’s name we declare. Amen.

Counsel: Know this, that no religion, including institutional Christianity will save anyone in the coming days. All must return back to the foundation of salvation which is the cross of Christ and a sincere walk of faith with God the Father.

Samuel Phillips

Samuel Phillips Samuel is a man in pursuit of an intimate relationship with God through time spent in the abiding presence of the Holy Spirit. His deepest desire is to see the sons of God become true tabernacles of worship upon whom GOD will rest and within whom GOD will dwell. He has spent time learning from the heart of the Father concerning artistic expressions of worship, the times and the seasons we are in, the responses that man must take with regard to the changing times and is now giving voice to various aspects of what has been released to him. His expressions of worship vary, coming forth in the form of music, nature photography, identity consulting and graphic design, as well as other audio-visual forms such as theatre/story-telling. Saphire338 is a tabernacle experience where Samuel will share some of his most intimate encounters with the King. Join us on this journey of discovery.
