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)

You are now being deployed into your destiny. You may feel unequipped but God doesn't call the equipped, He equips the called.

You are a “called out one,” and not by might, not by your strength, but by His Spirit you will always have exactly what you need to accomplish all He has called you to. Be brave and very courageous, because the Lord your God goes with you wherever you go, and He shall be your victory and your mighty God who saves over and over again!

Understanding Our Rite Of Passage

Posted 03-10-2024 at 04:08 PM by Albert Finch (How Do I Advance My Spiritual Life?)

"But we all, with unveiled face, beholding as in a mirror the glory of the Lord, are being transformed into the same image from glory to glory, just as from the Lord, the Spirit." - 2 Corinthians 3:18

We are born into this world into an earthly realm. We are not born into the realm of God's Spirit; that's why through Jesus we need to be born AGAIN into the spiritual realm. When you are born again, you are given the "Rite of passage" to enter from one dimension...

Scripture Of The Day - March 10, 2024

Posted 03-10-2024 at 12:04 PM by Albert Finch (How Do I Advance My Spiritual Life?)

Joshua 5:11, "And they ate of the produce of the land on the day after the Passover, unleavened bread and parched grain, on the very same day. Then the manna ceased on the day after they had eaten the produce of the land; and the children of Israel no longer had manna, but they ate the food of the land of Canaan that year."

The day the children of Israel ate of the food of the Promised Land the manna ceased the day after. Now they were living in a place of breakthrough because...

Persisting In Faith

Posted 03-10-2024 at 10:21 AM by Albert Finch (How Do I Advance My Spiritual Life?)

Galatians 6:9 - "Let us not become weary in doing good, for at the proper time we will reap a harvest if we do not give up."

Believers get confused and sometimes disillusioned because Things in the spirit realm are often not predictable. They ask: How long do I need to pray to get a breakthrough? When will I step into greater increase and blessing? When will there be a shift in my family for the better? Where is my healing miracle?

The simple and unpopular...

Many believers have been grinding at the mill of 'lifestyles.' It has taken them away from the will of God (some for many years) and it has seemed that they would never return to fulfill their destinies.

Though they have been in prisons of their own making, God is going to show them where their true power lies, and what they were born to do "for such a time as this"! He is going to find them in their prisons of "doing the same sins over and over" and tell them...
