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)

Becoming A Supernatural Gateway

Posted 11-14-2023 at 08:10 PM by Albert Finch (How Do I Advance My Spiritual Life?)

Isaiah 22:23 - "And I will fasten him like a peg or nail in a firm place; and he will become a throne of honor and glory to his father's house."
This person will become a "supernatural gateway" or a "throne" of God for all of Heaven to flow through. According to Isaiah, we literally become a throne that the Lord Jesus Christ can rest upon to reveal His Kingdom of power and glory! Psalm 22:3 says: "God is enthroned upon (lives within, dwells in) the praises...

Restoration To The Joy Of Our Salvation

Posted 11-14-2023 at 04:33 PM by Albert Finch (How Do I Advance My Spiritual Life?)

Many Believers love on people by telling them how precious they are, help them out with things they need doing, and even say a prayer to bless them but never actually preach the Gospel to them. They try to explain that doing acts of love is synonymous with preaching the Gospel and that they can preach with actions rather than words.

WE MUST PREACH THE GOSPEL

Mark 16:15 - "And He said to them, 'Go into all the world and preach the gospel to all creation.'"...

An Invitation To Be Lifted Up

Posted 11-14-2023 at 01:13 PM by Albert Finch (How Do I Advance My Spiritual Life?)

When Jesus said, "Repent, for the Kingdom of Heaven is at hand" (Matthew 4:17), it was not a message of judgment and condemnation – "Repent for the Kingdom of Heaven is at hand" offers A NEW WAY OF THINKING and being so that righteousness ( the ability to stand in the presence of Father God without the sense of guilt, inferiority or condemnation – since all our sins are forgiven (Romans 8:1,2) can no longer be mistaken as something we have to do (old covenant) in the hopes of...

November 14, 2023 – Exhortation

Posted 11-14-2023 at 05:21 AM by Albert Finch (How Do I Advance My Spiritual Life?)

Bell ringers of hope, arise! Flood the earth with your song! Shake the deathbeds with visions of the dawn, and those in slumber with your shouts of joy! For you are called in this hour to remind the Church that her greatest days are here NOW. You are called to shatter demonic footholds with the fire of your Christ calling escalating to a greater glory that is right now filling the earth.

Right NOW God is calling you forth from the circumstances that have knocked the wind out of you...

Witnessing To Others

Posted 11-14-2023 at 05:19 AM by Albert Finch (How Do I Advance My Spiritual Life?)

We meet people everywhere. Our business is TO TURN THEM from being forgetful of God, from being devoid of faith, from being prayerless, so that they become people who habitually pray, who believe in God, remember Him and do his will.

Whenever we share a testimony of what the power of Jesus has done -- any miracle, healing, salvation account -- the Spirit of prophecy is loosed over the people who are hearing it. This means the Spirit of God is actively moving on them to create faith....
