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)

Seeking Your Breakthrough

Posted 01-12-2024 at 10:41 PM by Albert Finch (How Do I Advance My Spiritual Life?)

The ascended life – living from Heaven – dwelling in that sense of His presence and living from there releases revelation into your life. Revelation and information are not equal or the same. You can have a lot of good Biblical information but it may seem lifeless to you because it is simply a ritual.

Feel His cross – feel His blood – It is real. It is You must have spiritual hunger, a strong prayer life, as well as time affirming and meditating on the Word to have the Holy...

Speaking To My Emotions

Posted 01-12-2024 at 10:11 PM by Albert Finch (How Do I Advance My Spiritual Life?)

John 19:30 - "When Jesus therefore had received the vinegar, he said, "It is finished": and he bowed his head, and gave up the ghost."

AT THAT, JESUS' DISCIPLES, LOOKING TO THEIR OWN LIMITATIONS AND THE SEEMING HOPELESSNESS OF THEIR SITUATION, SCATTERED. THEY HID THEMSELVES. THEY WEREN'T THINKING ABOUT JESUS' PROMISE: THEY WERE THINKING ONLY ABOUT HOW POWERLESS, HELPLESS, AND AFRAID THEY FELT WITHOUT HIM.

IF THE DEVIL CAN GET...

Speaking The End Result

Posted 01-12-2024 at 09:55 PM by Albert Finch (How Do I Advance My Spiritual Life?)

2 Corinthians 4:13 - “We have the same spirit of faith as he (the psalmist) who wrote, I have believed and therefore have spoken. We too believe, and therefore we speak."

TO SPEAK BY FAITH IS SIMPLY TO SPEAK WORDS THAT AGREE WITH THE WORD OF GOD INSTEAD OF THE CIRCUMSTANCES AROUND YOU. IT'S SPEAKING FROM YOUR SPIRIT INSTEAD OF FROM YOUR MIND.

THE BIBLE TELLS US THAT GOD USES WORDS TO "CALL THOSE THINGS WHICH BE NOT AS THOUGH THEY WERE"...

January 12, 2024 - Exhortation

Posted 01-12-2024 at 05:18 PM by Albert Finch (How Do I Advance My Spiritual Life?)

Hebrews 11:6 - "No man can please God without Faith." (TEV)

Without faith it is impossible to please God. We are not allowed to simply wait for something to happen.

The spirit of the resurrected Christ is in you -- find it. That discovery releases extraordinary faith. That partnership positions you to redefine the nature of the world around you.

Ask the Lord to propel you into the next level of your growth and destiny. If we lose sight...

Becoming The Word

Posted 01-12-2024 at 12:01 AM by Albert Finch (How Do I Advance My Spiritual Life?)

"Now, therefore, you are no longer strangers and foreigners, but fellow citizens with the saints and members of the household of God, having been built on the foundation of the apostles and prophets, Jesus Christ Himself being the chief cornerstone, in whom the whole building, being fitted together, grows into a holy temple in the Lord, in whom you also are being built together for a dwelling place of God in the Spirit." - Ephesians 2:19-22
