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)

Reclaiming your inheritance in christ

Posted 02-16-2022 at 11:09 PM by Albert Finch (How Do I Advance My Spiritual Life?)

"Now the sons of the prophets said to Elisha, 'Look now, the place where we live near you is too small for us. Please let us go to the Jordan [River] and let each man take from there a beam [for the building]; and let us make a place there for ourselves where we may live.' And he answered, 'Go.' Then one said, 'Please be willing to go with your servants.' So he answered, 'I shall go.' So he went with them; and when they came to the Jordan, they cut down [some of] the trees. But it happened...

Becoming Fruitful

Posted 02-16-2022 at 12:42 AM by Albert Finch (How Do I Advance My Spiritual Life?)

John 15:5, “I am the vine, you are the branches. He who abides in Me, and I in him, bears much fruit; for without Me you can do nothing.”

The Lord Jesus gives us this divine union by the Spirit so that we can bear fruit that remains for His Kingdom. All the vine has is made available to the branches -- to give us what we need to be fruitful. The perpetual flow of the Holy Spirit provides for us on a constant, daily basis.

As we grow, through revelation, in our understanding...

Scripture Of The Day – February 15, 2022

Posted 02-15-2022 at 11:48 AM by Albert Finch (How Do I Advance My Spiritual Life?)

“Now faith is the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen.” - Hebrews 11:1

You need to see your miracle in your spirit before it will manifest. You need to see it as finished. We must catch a vision and revelation of what Jesus has already done. We must see ourselves healed.

When Jesus raised Lazarus from the dead, He did not have to lay hands on the dead. There was authority in the Word of God. What is dead? Maybe your faith is dead. Maybe your...

Imagination - God's Creative Dimension

Posted 02-15-2022 at 12:37 AM by Albert Finch (How Do I Advance My Spiritual Life?)

"And the LORD said, Behold, the people is one, and they have all one language; and this they begin to do: and now nothing will be restrained from them, which they have imagined to do." - Genesis 11:6

God is always communicating with us, whether we are aware of it or not. God speaks in the parables of Jesus so that we can come into the knowledge of God (spiritual realm) through the Spirit of Understanding, in order to gain wisdom to move in His counsel and in His might....

Scripture Of The Day – February 14, 2022

Posted 02-14-2022 at 09:06 PM by Albert Finch (How Do I Advance My Spiritual Life?)

"I stretch out my hands to You; My soul longs for You, as a parched land." - Psalm 143:6

As we continue on into 2022 we lean into the secret place, spending more time with God, there is a new hunger for revelation concerning our calling in Christ, compelling us to "throw away" everything that carries no heavenly or eternal objective. We are in a season where nothing else matters except Jesus!

A new hunger is growing in us. It is essential to throw...
