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)

Many believers have lost their supernatural, prophetic edge but it is the time to get it back. He is asking you today, "Where did you lose it? Where is the place your fire went out? When did you stop believing to see the impossible?"


The time that Jesus asked Mary and Martha, "Where have you laid him?" (John 11:34) – referring to Lazarus, who was dead and buried. In other words, in the spiritual sense, He asked them,...

Stirring Up Your Vixion

Posted 03-12-2024 at 06:51 PM by Albert Finch (How Do I Advance My Spiritual Life?)

God's spiritual nation today is all the born-again Believers that make up the Body of Christ worldwide. The only way that the Church is enlarged is through the harvest of new souls and discipling the new Believers into their Christ identity. This is how the Kingdom continues to increase. There are many parts of the world where great glory is brought to the Lord in this way. However, in many Western nations, there is a spiritual barrenness.

"As a woman with child and about to...

Scripture Of The Day - November 14, 2022

Posted 03-12-2024 at 09:13 AM by Albert Finch (How Do I Advance My Spiritual Life?)

1 Corinthians 3:9 - "For we are co-workers in God's service; you are God's field, God's building."

Some believers think faith is a one-way street. They believe in God and wait on God to do the work. They think belief is the only thing they need.

That person does nothing but sit still and procrastinates, waiting for God. "Well, I'll just pray about it." they use waiting on God as an excuse for their own lack of engagement. "If...

Moses' mother hid her newborn by faith. Your act of faith is going to cause disruption and reversal to the plot of the enemy that has targeted your life. Your destiny has not been aborted! You have only been hidden.

The earth is groaning and travailing; the time is now! You have been hidden away, but now you have outgrown the place of concealment. He is setting up divine connections for you that will propel you into your purpose. He will cause you to rise up in the very place that...
