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)

Stepping Into The River Of His Anointing

Posted 12-15-2021 at 11:14 PM by Albert Finch

God wants to bring us to a place to receive His power, power to overcome -- overcome sickness and financial difficulties, to heal marriages and to ask, seek, and knock,(Matthew 7:7) until we come to understand and begin carrying out His purpose for our life. God has positioned the church to be the light of the world and we will not be wounded soldiers but victorious warriors.

"And he showed me a pure river of water of life, clear as crystal, proceeding out of the throne of God and of the Lamb...And let him that is athirst come. And whosoever will, let him take the water of life freely." - Revelation 22:1,17

The river was the presence of God and He comes in the rushing river to cover us in His anointing as a means to advance His Kingdom in the earth.

Presently many of his people in the body of Christ are living under in their circumstances and they can see no way out.

Surrender to the Lord and walk in freedom for this appointed time.


Answer: We step into the river of His anointing -- by rejecting our old thinking of what is possible or impossible and why we are out of favor with God. To continue to embrace this old thinking is to deny the power of the blood of Jesus.

We are faithful stewards of the anointing of His power in the world.

We are priests and ministers of the New Covenant in the power and authority of the same Spirit that raised Christ from the dead.


"Not by might, nor by power, but by my Spirit, says the Lord of hosts. What are you O great mountain...you shall become a plain......amid shouts of 'Grace, grace to it." - Zechariah 4:6,7

What the Lord is showing us in Zechariah 4 is a heavenly blueprint or pattern for the Church. He tells us to die to ourselves, to come out of our own perceived strength and perceived power, and live in our Christ identity to bear fruit for His Kingdom.

Every believer in Christ Jesus can live in the perpetual continuous flow of the Holy Spirit daily in their life, for we've all been given the blessing and authority to tap into the root of continuous oil. That root is Jesus! (Romans 11:16,17)


Are you tired of going around the same old mountain hoping to get to the top, but the obstacles hold you back? It is time to shake off the old and get ready for the new and for receiving the workings of Christ in you, for NEW BEGINNINGS in your God-given calling - for the rich oil of His anointing.

"Be glad then, you children of Zion, and rejoice in the Lord your God; for He has given you the former rain faithfully, and He will cause the rain to come down for you...." Joel 2:23

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 world-changing DESTINY.
