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.

Jesus said, "Self-help is not help at all. Self-sacrifice is the way, to finding yourself, your true self. (Matthew 16:25)

"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)

An intense battle is ahead of you! God is speaking loud and clear right now. There is a supernatural strength coming upon you to be instrumental in birthing the next wave of revival which will be super intense as it brings into the spiritual consciousness of the Laodicean Church the necessity of advancing His Kingdom through discipling believers into their Christ identity so they will...
