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)

If you are a Believer who is experiencing discouragement, wondering if God is ever going to send you a breakthrough, do you not know that your dry place has a purpose? Don't listen to the lies of the evil one, telling you that things will never change. He is a liar! Jesus Himself was led by the Spirit into the wilderness to be tempted by the devil....

Embracing The New Season

The Lord challenges many in coming out of familiar places into new territory. It is part of the reality of coming into that "Promised Land" (God’s purpose for your life) that so many are hoping and praying for as Believers in Christ.

It is up to US to take that step of faith out of our familiar comfort zones and into that which we have never encountered before. We also determine when and how we access our destiny by stepping out of the familiar into the unfamiliar. That's...

"I will give you the keys of the Kingdom of Heaven; whatever you bind on Earth will be bound in Heaven, and whatever you loose on Earth will be loosed in Heaven." (Matthew 16:19)


Do not fear adverse worldly circumstances and conditions; Jesus has the keys to death and...
