Going to church, reading the bible, listening to Christian music will not advance your spiritual life. These activities may give you more understanding but until you are ready to lay down your life and take up your cross this leads nowhere.

What I am talking about is the sacrifice of self to advance the cause of Jesus Christ in the world. There is a destiny that God had for each of us that only we can personally discover. We can discover it only by detaching from the world and making ourselves available for the Holy Spirit. By detaching from the world--now you have time--the commodity that most Christians are not willing to give.

Jesus said, "Self-help is not help at all. Self-sacrifice is the way, to finding yourself, your true self. (Matthew 16:25)

"God has planted eternity in the human heart." (Ecclesiastes 3:11)

"Anyone who lets himself be distracted from the work I plan for him is not fit for the Kingdom of God." (Luke 9:62)

"The most important thing is that I complete my mission, the work that the Lord Jesus gave me." (Acts 20:24)

"We have been sent to speak for Christ." (2 Corinthians 5:20)

"We are God's workmanship, created in Christ Jesus, to do good works, which God prepared in advance for us to do." (Ephesians 2:10)

Expecting A Level Of Grace

Posted 11-02-2023 at 09:35 AM by Albert Finch

"And it shall come to pass at that time, [that] I will search Jerusalem with candles, and punish the men that are settled on their lees: that say in their heart, The LORD will not do good, neither will He do evil." - Zephaniah 1:12 KJV

"Settled", according to Strongs Concordance, means to become dense. "Lees" means dregs, old settlings! When our hearts do not believe that the Lord is moving in our lives, we turn to other things and become dense, settled, and lukewarm. Jesus strongly warns of being lukewarm in Revelation 3:14-22. There is a grace available to us that can deliver us from an existence of passionless, feckless living to a life of being possessed by the fire of the Holy Spirit.


We are NEW creatures in Christ, old things are passed away, BEHOLD, all things are become new (see 2 Corinthians 5:17)! Behold, can you see? God is doing a new thing. See by the Spirit of the LIVING God, using all your senses with a lens of faith. Do we believe?

There is available grace for new hearing! "If you wander off the road to the right or the left, you will hear his voice behind you saying, '"Here is the road. Follow it.'" (Isaiah 30:21).

Expect it. Listen and step out!

There is available grace to perceive and receive angelic help. They are bringing tools and strategies to help us to fulfill God's purpose for our life and bear fruit for His Kingdom.

There is available grace to overcome complacency and unbelief; to break up the old ways of thinking…through seeking His presence with a mindset of coming to fully understand our Christ identity and move into higher and more efficient states of mind.

Grace is the divine influence of the Holy Spirit upon our hearts. Believe for and receive grace to see our true heart condition, and be empowered to break out of the old and move into the NEW!


There is available grace to receive new revelation. If you hear the WORD and think "I've heard it before," you aren't hearing it with faith. There is grace to experience fresh revelation of the Word of God as active...alive...fresh and new right now! Receive revelation from the eternal realm and bring it into the earth realm.

You are seated with Christ in heavenly places. Grace is upon us to behold, receive, and bring these revelations to earth!
