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)

Latter Rain

Posted 06-12-2021 at 08:28 PM by Albert Finch


"In the light of the king's face is life, and his favor is like a cloud of the latter rain"—Proverbs 16:15

Under the New Covenant we walk under an open Heaven -- the King's light overshadows us! The light from His brilliant face releases His life, but it also releases His favor, which is "like a cloud of the latter rain." So His favor is described as this spiritual rain.

"Behold the former things have come to pass. But new things I declare, and before they spring forth, I tell you of them."—Isaiah 42:9

STRETCH FORTH YOUR HANDS

In 2021 God is offering to us rains that will bring the 100-fold harvest of His Word spoken over our lives: words about the past, the present, and the future for our families, your region, YOUR MINISTRY, and your nation! Just stretch forth your hands toward Heaven and tell Him, "Lord, I receive Your rain! Let it rain down on me! Let it pour. I want a downpour!"

Take some time and seek Him for the full outpouring of His latter rain blessing. Don't let this occasion pass you by! He wants to bring forth the fruit of His Word, and your heart is good soil for it. Get ready to go to a NEW LEVEL of walking more deeply with Him, Spirit to spirit, deep to deep, and let Him refresh you now with His rain, knowing that He who made and formed you will establish you in your DESTINY and CALLING!

The Lord is going to take our lives and display His goodness, His grace, and His manifold wisdom through us. Ask the Lord to release a cloud of favor over you now—the favor that releases the latter rain!
