By faith we understand that the universe was created by the word of God, so that what is seen was not made out of things that are visible.
The word evidence is the same word as testimony. Most people do not testify, they only tell us what the devil has done and can do. We are supposed to give glory to the name of Jesus. Praise should be given to Jesus for the things He has done and will still do. Faith is the substance of the things hoped for and the evidence of things not seen. That means faith is unseen. Jesus himself is an evidence of the glory and power of God. He is the evidence of another world; the evidence that God is real. He was killed because He said He was equal with God. As the scripture says, ‘What is man that You are mindful …’’ for You have made him…’ The coming of Jesus is to show us what the Father has done, ‘for Christ was in Jesus..’ There were two men in him, the first was Jesus of Nazareth son of Mary and the second was Jesus, son of God. That was why He said, ‘what do men say I am?’ the son of God was in the son of man. He was the first begotten from the grave, so He has the right to imprint Himself to many, when He gave up the ghost so that we too could receive the Holy Ghost. Testimony therefore, is to make you a star and an evidence.
Then I fell down at his feet to worship him, but he said to me, “You must not do that! I am a fellow servant with you and your brothers who hold to the testimony of Jesus. Worship God.” For the testimony of Jesus is the spirit of prophecy.
‘Then I fell…worship him…’ ‘Him’ here is referring to an angel who showed John the revelation. The book of Revelation is an encounter with an angel. Some of these angels are ministering spirits. Real visitation of angel is purely truth. This angel was permitted to have the testimony of the saint, and the purpose is for deliverance. The tabernacle is the dwelling place and the reason for it is for the ark and the reason for the ark is to house the testimony- it is called the tabernacle of the testimony. The reason the book of Revelation was given is for the purpose of the testimony of Jesus, so that the testimony can be handed down to the saint. The key for closing this age is the power of the testimony because the next advent is going to be run by man.
The revelation of Jesus Christ, which God gave him to show to his servants the things that must soon take place. He made it known by sending his angel to his servant John,
God wants to show to servants connects the church. It is not all the churches that have captured the way to serve God, you have to be trained to be able to serve God, and even while in service you still need to be upgraded. You cannot serve God by wishing to serve Him, if you do it that way, you cannot please Him. After you become born again, you must know who you are serving by the biblical pattern. You have to know God before you can serve and service is done in the temple. Salvation belongs to those who serve. Worship and Service are the same. The reason why we serve God is to conform to that which is in the ark, which is the testimony. If you have to do it, you have to do it well to please Him.
What servants need is revelation. The angel is also a significant of this revelation. He is manifesting the testimony and was able to emanate the testimony. What makes them brethren is the testament. It means if they have a testament that is the same, then they are of the same fold. The testament is the content of the blood, or the genetic makeup of the blood. Life is in the blood and other information of the blood. The DNA of the Lamb manifests different characteristic which makes them one because of the technology of that blood line. The prophetic life is more that speaking. True prophets are those who submit to the testimony. The devil cannot read the testimony because it is an advance prophetic code. The writing is in the blood of Jesus. All that Jesus will do and become was programmed in Him and He allowed and obeyed it and never denied it. He could not deny His blood and you who have believed also have a way in the testimony. Abraham did not prophecy but he was a prophet. ‘As many as are led by the Spirit…’ Sons of God are prophets. A son means honour and glory. …‘what is man that you are mindful…’ Heaven is God’s home and the earth is to the sons of men, not every man. This earth is to be governed by the prophetic. God gave the earth to a prophet. The prophetic is a preserver. It only takes the prophet to sight the enemy. Satan is a spirit and you cannot deal with a spirit through flesh. So, God has hidden the things that satan cannot read in us. ‘…little lower…’ Angels were prophets, higher than Adam.
Long ago, at many times and in many ways, God spoke to our fathers by the prophets,
but in these last days he has spoken to us by his Son, whom he appointed the heir of all things, through whom also he created the world. He is the radiance of the glory of God and the exact imprint of his nature, and he upholds the universe by the word of his power. After making purification for sins, he sat down at the right hand of the Majesty on high, having become as much superior to angels as the name he has inherited is more excellent than theirs. For to which of the angels did God ever say, “You are my Son, today I have begotten you”? Or again, “I will be to him a father, and he shall be to me a son”?
And again, when he brings the firstborn into the world, he says, “Let all God’s angels worship him.”
God is speaking to us through a higher core which is His express image. This is the new prophet. The former man was little lower than angels but now he said, ‘let all the angels worship him’ and ‘that at the name of Jesus ….’The prophetic measure is measured by the testimony they proclaim. Amos and Enoch were also prophets in their own way. God taught them how to abide, and they lost timing of age. God is restoring strength and we will lose the fear of bondage. Adam lived by faith and he acquired life- the just shall live by faith.
Then Cain went away from the presence of the LORD and settled in the land of Nod, east of Eden.
Cain had the initiative to see tomorrow so he did not see the need to live by faith. Cain never trusted God. He did not believe that God could bless the land, so he worshiped the work of his hands. He could not say ‘The Lord is the strength of my life’. Genesis 4:18-26; 5:1-8. God was teaching them how to live His testimony. God made these men live because they allowed God to direct them. Men knew God then. There was no mentioning of diseases and sickness, so there was no need for healing and deliverance. Cain never lived because he never allowed God to teach him. Abraham was delayed in having a child. It was God who shut the womb of Sarah to give them life. Enoch lived and walked with God. Living helps you to please God. Jesus lived better in 33 years, even better than those who lived hundreds of years. John lived better than Moses. The best of faith often does not show results here. Your life would not amount to anything if you do not give him the chance to live. It will take a lot for you to walk in your testimony.
