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)

Purpose Tp Create With God

Posted 02-25-2022 at 12:24 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."

Man was made in the likeness and image of God (Genesis 1:26) with the purpose to create with God. Our Father doesn't need us but He desires to partner with His family. Man was created to work in union with God. We are co-laborers as it says in 1 Corinthians 3:9.

In this decade, we are not only going to prophesy about the things we see, we are also going to make...

Scripture Of The Day – February 24, 2021

Posted 02-24-2022 at 06:38 PM by Albert Finch (How Do I Advance My Spiritual Life?)

"Therefore leaving the elementary teaching about the Christ, let us press on to maturity"...Hebrews 6:1

Don't allow yourself to stagnate and become callous and cold. Now is the time to awake from slumber and rouse to reality (see Romans 13:11-14)! Arise and shine and push on to new heights (see Isaiah 60:1-5).

There is a wonderful grace offered for us to advance in the times of adversity! The invitation is extended to all saints; however, by a lack of commitment...

Stepping Into The Next Season

Posted 02-24-2022 at 01:36 AM by Albert Finch (How Do I Advance My Spiritual Life?)

"For God has not given us a spirit of fear but of power and love and self-control." (2 Timothy 1:7)

What you're going through right now is getting you ready for what's about to happen to you next in 2022! In fact, your 'next' is your 'now.' This is your season to be creative. You will design things that are not from you but from Him. Strategies are downloaded from Heaven and uploaded to you by God's choosing. People will be placed intentionally into areas of your life to...

Stewarding Our Lives

Posted 02-23-2022 at 02:30 PM by Albert Finch (How Do I Advance My Spiritual Life?)

"'Is not My Word like fire,' declares the Lord, 'and like a hammer that breaks the rock in pieces?'" - Jeremiah 23:29

In 2022 be ready for demonstrations of His power, His justice, His provision, His favor, His breakthrough, and deliverance, but God is also looking for a people who are yielded, strong, fortified in Him and His Word alone, prepared, and maturing to CARRY HIS GLORY

As you SEE the power of the Word of God and His revelation contained within...

Sanctioning Our Consciousness

Posted 02-23-2022 at 01:08 AM by Albert Finch (How Do I Advance My Spiritual Life?)

"And I, if I be lifted up from the earth, will draw all men to Me" (John 12:32).

Another way we can look His words is this: "If I be lifted up, magnified and exalted to a place of consciousness in your heart, I will draw all men unto Me."

The convictions you hold about God and yourself in Christ directly determine what you display in life. You must sanction your consciousness to rise upon Christ until He becomes tangibly touchable or real within...
