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)

Seeking Communion – August 31, 2021

Posted 08-31-2021 at 12:31 AM by Albert Finch


Be aware that the enemy would come with distraction after distraction only to rob you, and deposit within you despondency and numbness putting you in a sense of shock and longing -- not know which way to go -- to the left or to the right.

In times of trouble, call in His presence, for where you are His presence is. Do you not understand 'The Hope of Glory' that is within you? Do not look to the exterior. Do not look outward. Don't look around. Look in. Let His presence, let His strength, roll out of you.

TAKE UP YOUR POSITION - - WAKE UP!

"Lift up your heads, O gates, And be lifted up, O ancient doors, That the King of glory may come in!" - Psalm 24:7

Take up your position, for the King of Glory longs to come in -- but will you recognize Him? How will you recognize Him? What if you're asleep in your spirit? Wake up! Wake up!

Shake off the negative words. Let them drop off of you. Do not let the enemy live in the darkness of your words. Do not cover him with words of unbelief, for he hides and brings torment with fear, and aggravation, and regret, and remorse.

Expose him by the light of the Word and His presence. You are His mouthpiece. But how can you speak what He tells you to speak unless you have come with praise and thanksgiving, and receive that which He would give to you?

Let the Holy Spirit quicken this to you. Let this be a foundation, a cornerstone -- for you are the temple -- His presence dwells in your temple.

Claim His ever-filling. Claim His ever-presence. Claim and remember His faithfulness.


ARISE AND SHINE -- YOU ARE THE LIGHT


You are to arise and to shine. You are not called to hide in the darkness, but you are called "the light."

You are a living epistle -- alive in His Word and His Word is alive in you?

Shake off the darkness. Shake off the negative agreement. Tell the enemy, 'No, get behind me.' Do not hide behind him with murmuring and accusing, one to another, for His Spirit grieves in murmuring.

You are sealed by His Spirit. Do not take that lightly.

Own it. Live in it.

And let His Word do what it was sent to do – set captives free.
