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)

Penetrating The Veil Of The Ordinary

Posted 12-02-2023 at 09:20 PM by Albert Finch (How Do I Advance My Spiritual Life?)

Matthew 5:13,14,16 -- "You are the salt of the earth......You are the light of the world. A city that is set on a hill cannot be hidden. Let your light so shine before men, that they may see your good works and glorify your Father in heaven."

Since the moment we first came to Christ, there has been an updraft of the Holy Spirit, a constant drawing from God lifting us upward toward the fullness of His Presence. Let's surrender to this wind of God and allow Him to carry...

Living In The Promises

Posted 12-02-2023 at 12:43 PM by Albert Finch (How Do I Advance My Spiritual Life?)

"I will say of the Lord, He is my refuge and my fortress: my God; in Him will I trust. Surely He shall deliver thee from the snare of the fowler, and from the noisome pestilence. He shall cover thee with His feathers, and under His wings shalt thou trust: His truth shall be thy shield and buckler. Thou shalt not be afraid for the terror by night; nor for the arrow that flieth by day..." - Psalm 91:2-6

God promises us that we have no need to fear the demonic entities that...

Exercising Our Inheritance

Posted 12-02-2023 at 11:30 AM by Albert Finch (How Do I Advance My Spiritual Life?)

Numbers 13:28,30 - "Nevertheless the people be strong that dwell in the land, and the cities are walled, and very great: and moreover we saw the children of Anak (giants) there. And Caleb stilled the people before Moses, and said, Let us go up at once, and possess it; for we are well able to overcome it."

MANY BELIEVERS, LIKE THE ISRAELITES, ARE WANDERING AROUND IN A WILDERNESS OF DEFEAT BECAUSE THERE'S AN ENEMY IN THE PROMISED LAND. THEY'RE BEING ROBBED OF THEIR RIGHTFUL...

December 2, 2023 - Exhortation

Posted 12-02-2023 at 11:20 AM by Albert Finch (How Do I Advance My Spiritual Life?)

Faith is being awakened in you today to see the supernatural become possibly natural every day in your life. You are the dwelling place of God so your faith will be unshaken.

Your mouth is a secret weapon against the enemy. Know your authority and dominion in Christ to decree and speak the will of God over everything.

Most Believers just speak to God about the mountains they are facing daily instead of following Jesus' directions and speaking directly to the mountains....
