Through Eyes of Fire by Daniel Yordy : The NOW context by Rich Novek

The NOW Revelation!
ALL of us, then, who are mature should take such a view of things. And if on some point you think differently, that too GOD WILL MAKE CLEAR TO YOU. Only let us live up to what we have already attained. Philippians 3:15-16
It's NOW been about 10 years since God showed me Philippians 3:15-16, a very little known (and even less taught) little mystery tucked away IN Philippians chapter 3.
I call it the doorway to "True Grace" IN that it's here where God let's us know no matter what maturity level we find ourselves, we can KNOW with a certainty that God is bringing to us the clarity we need IN whatever situation or circumstance we might find ourselves. This is the same clarity that allows us to SEE ALL THINGS AS HE DOES right here and NOW!
This passage is what God used when He began to reveal the reality of the "NOW" revelation for me personally.
This is the culmination of so much Spirit centered truth, 
including Isaiah 43:18-19, 
“Forget the former things;
    do not dwell on the past.
19 See, I am doing a new thing!
    Now it springs up; do you not perceive it?
I am making a way in the wilderness
    and streams in the wasteland.
Romans 8:1-2,
Therefore, there is now no condemnation for those who are in Christ Jesus, because through Christ Jesus the law of the Spirit who gives life has set you[a] free from the law of sin and death. 
Romans 12:1-2,
Therefore, I urge you, brothers and sisters, in view of God’s mercy, to offer your bodies as a living sacrifice, holy and pleasing to God—this is your true and proper worship. Do not conform to the pattern of this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind. Then you will be able to test and approve what God’s will is—his good, pleasing and perfect will.
Philippians 2:13,
for it is God who works in you to will and to act in order to fulfill his good purpose.
Hebrews 4:7-11
God again set a certain day, calling it “Today.” This he did when a long time later he spoke through David, as in the passage already quoted:
“Today, if you hear his voice,
    do not harden your hearts.”[d]
For if Joshua had given them rest, God would not have spoken later about another day.There remains, then, a Sabbath-rest for the people of God; 10 for anyone who enters God’s rest also rests from their works,[e] just as God did from his. 11 Let us, therefore, make every effort to enter that rest, so that no one will perish by following their example of disobedience.

...and so much more,
truth which assures us wherever we are (whatever point that may be) is exactly where we are supposed to be right here and NOW.
And what's more, this powerful revelation comes to us without any condemnation of the past or fear of the future!
And so what is our part?
To NOW simply rest right here until He shows us the next thing, whatever that might be!
