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)

Breakthrough is the result that occurs after you have come to understand and implement your Christ identity (by affirming and meditating on the scriptures that show you who you are in Christ through the...

Putting On Love - Praying The Scriptures

Posted 12-30-2023 at 02:39 PM by Albert Finch (How Do I Advance My Spiritual Life?)

I love You, God, because You first loved me. (1 John 4:19)

You sent Your only begotten Son, Jesus, to this earth out of Your love for me and for others. I have believed on Him and now, I will not perish - I have everlasting life. You did not send Jesus to condemn me, but to save me, and I thank You for that! (John 3:16,17)

God, if You loved me that much, I should give love to others. (1 John 4:11)

So, I will love others. It's a sign that I've been...

December 30, 2023 - Exhortation

Posted 12-30-2023 at 11:00 AM by Albert Finch (How Do I Advance My Spiritual Life?)

If we don't give up, eventually we walk into the Promised Land (Our Destiny in Christ). The last command of Jesus while on earth says, "Go!" That's why we often see the anointing increase as we go, moving with the cloud.

Dive deep into discernment. Do not take everything at face value. Draw close to Him and let Him show you what is truly taking place.


There is much taking place in the spirit around you, where the enemy is trying to load you up with...
