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)

Scripture Of The Day - January 18, 2022

Posted 01-18-2022 at 09:58 AM by Albert Finch

"He made my mouth like a sharpened sword, in the shadow of His hand He hid me; He made me into a polished arrow and concealed me in His quiver." - Isaiah 49:2

This is an hour where the Church can't be silent. This will be a year of the power and glory returning to the Church in a way we have not seen! This will be a year of the fresh utterance as fresh coals are placed on our tongues by the Lord. This is a moment where we need to boldly come before the throne of grace and walk in the authority we have been given. This is a year for the BRIDE to SPEAK UP!

"Behold, the storm of the Lord has gone forth in wrath, even a whirling tempest; it will swirl down on the head of the wicked" - Jeremiah 23:19

This will be a year where you rise above the storm and become the storm. This will be a year of breaking out of confinement and limitations. you have been anointed to demolish strongholds with your words and evict principalities! This will be a year to prophesy, worship, and be the voice of truth as you exhort others to find God's purpose for their life so they can start bearing fruit for His Kingdom. !

"And I will place on his shoulder the key of the house of David. He shall open, and none shall shut; and he shall shut, and none shall open." - Isaiah 22:22

We are in the year of double doors opened by the keys of authority which we have been given (Isaiah 22:22). We are in the year of the keys of David being revealed to the Church, and a year where we use them. We can't hide out or lay down in defeat anymore. It's time to open the doors the enemy thought he locked from our reach.
