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)

Transform Your Thinking

Posted 12-13-2023 at 06:52 PM by Albert Finch (How Do I Advance My Spiritual Life?)

God must reveal to us that nothing in this life is truly good, for it is not lasting. And our soul, which is eternal, must stop trying to find its resting place and security in earthly loves and worldly joys. Nothing in this life can offer the secure hope, the limitless love our soul needs -- for the earth and all that is in it is passing away.

"Remember this! In the last days there will be many troubles, because people will love themselves, love money, brag, and be proud. They...

December 13, 2023 – Exhortation

Posted 12-13-2023 at 04:24 PM by Albert Finch (How Do I Advance My Spiritual Life?)

John 8:36 - "If the Son therefore shall make you free, ye shall be free indeed."

Loose yourself from all entanglements, soul ties, dead works, wrong relationships, and wrong mindsets. Break free from everything that hinders the work of His Spirit in your lives. No weights, no cords, no bindings, no tubes connected or having an access point into your lives.

Be free from all false expectations, man's expectations, religious expectations; every expectation that...

See The Vision

Posted 12-13-2023 at 09:28 AM by Albert Finch (How Do I Advance My Spiritual Life?)

Many Believers have been stuck in a state of constantly fighting for their vision just to stay alive. They can't even dream of anything bigger, but what they need is enlargement to their prophetic vision."

The enemy is desperate to destroy your prophetic vision, knowing that you are an exposed target for him without it. He is aware that if he can steal it, he can cause you to give up and forfeit the promises that God has made to you.

"Where there is NO clear...

Releasing The Breath Of God

Posted 12-13-2023 at 09:22 AM by Albert Finch (How Do I Advance My Spiritual Life?)

Biblically, a whirlwind represents or displays the power and might of God. In Nahum 1:3 it declares, "...He displays His power in the whirlwind and the storm..." In Acts 2, we also see the wind of God released in the Upper Room that displayed His power and filled the people of God with the Holy Spirit.

The Voice of God

Throughout the Bible, God would speak through a whirlwind. In Job 38:1 it says, "Then the Lord answered Job from the whirlwind."...

Mandate To Conquer The Forces Of Darkness

Posted 12-13-2023 at 09:14 AM by Albert Finch (How Do I Advance My Spiritual Life?)

Sometimes, it takes courage just to wake up every morning and not be swept into the worldly narrative of the day. As Believers with a divine mandate to conquer the forces of darkness and advance God's Kingdom, it is vital to grasp this timeless truth: Your perception of Jesus and your CHRIST IDENTITY shapes your response to adversity.

You are coming out from under the weight of heaviness and weariness and tapping into the easy yoke and potency of your Christ calling.
