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)

Experiencing His Radiance Through Focus And Repetition

Posted 11-30-2023 at 07:17 PM by Albert Finch (How Do I Advance My Spiritual Life?)

It is easy to go to sleep reviewing negative ideas and pictures in our mind and wake up in the morning with a poisoned and negative spirit instead of falling asleep receiving the love of Jesus in your heart and giving it back to Him.

CONTINUOUSLY DECLARE GOD'S WORDS

We declare truth over any negative circumstance in our lives and we see Jesus present in inner healing scenes. And since we do this continuously, this becomes ALL that we see.

We do not see...

Sainthood

Posted 11-30-2023 at 05:31 PM by Albert Finch (How Do I Advance My Spiritual Life?)

Colossians 1:26,27 - "the mystery hidden for ages and generations but now revealed to his saints. To them, God has chosen to make known among the Gentiles the glorious riches of this mystery, which is Christ in you, the hope of glory."

Pride is the deification of self. To say "Oh, I'm no saint." is acceptable to human pride, but it is unconscious blasphemy against God. It literally means that you defy God to make you a saint. "I am much too weak and hopeless."...

November 30, 2023 - Exhortation

Posted 11-30-2023 at 11:41 AM by Albert Finch (How Do I Advance My Spiritual Life?)

Wear the crown of glory that He would have you wear uprightly. Lay down any identity that man would come with. Man would come and try to push His crown off your head, and put upon it a counterfeit identity.

Lay down all these things that rush into your mind – to where you cannot even come into His presence, because your mind, your spirit, is somewhere else.

Call everything that would command you to give up dreams and visions and hope – command it to be cast behind...

Talk To The Mountain

Posted 11-30-2023 at 11:00 AM by Albert Finch (How Do I Advance My Spiritual Life?)

Mark 11:23 - "Truly I tell you, if anyone says to this mountain, 'Go, throw yourself into the sea,' and does not doubt in their heart but believes that what they say will happen, it will be done for them."

Jesus was talking about Spoken Manifestation.

Jesus released His hearers into a Spoken Manifestation Anointing, where we step from a place of prayer (supplication and asking), to a place of commanding, through faith. Jesus said speak to the mountain! Maybe...

Embracing Your Promotion

Posted 11-30-2023 at 10:41 AM by Albert Finch (How Do I Advance My Spiritual Life?)

Amos 9:13 MSG - "...Things are going to happen so fast your head will swim, one thing fast on the heels of the other. You won't be able to keep up. Everything will be happening at once—and everywhere you look, blessings!"

Your promotion will produce personal chaos. This is a blessing and not a curse. Know that if God is with you, you won't fail. Cling to God tightly and press forward.

Don't return to the familiar or the comfortable. The cloud has moved. His...
