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)

The Seven-fold Promise In The Abrahamic Covenant

Posted 12-27-2023 at 09:05 PM by Albert Finch


"You shall be the father of many nations": This speaks of "FATHERING" (discipling) other believers in their spiritual walk.

"Your name shall be Abraham": This speaks of greatly ENLARGED VISION. By changing Abram's name which meant "high, exalted father" to Abraham, meaning "father of a multitude", God greatly enlarged his vision.

"I will make you exceedingly fruitful": This speaks of ABUNDANCE. Fruitfulness is self-replicating abundance produced by co-laboring with God in His PURPOSE for your life.

"I will make nations of you": This speaks of STRENGTH. God will equip us with strength that comes from that which every joint supplies in the community of believers we call the Body of Christ.


"Kings will come from you": This speaks of DOMINION AND AUTHORITY.

"I will give to you and to your posterity after you, the land": This speaks of OWNERSHIP. He who controls the land, controls what's on it and determine what is allowed.

"I will be their God": This speaks of LORDSHIP. God is our protector, our Lord and our Father. As our Lord, He requires us to be generous, to give to others, to help widows and orphans, support ministries, etc.

GALATIANS 3:14 - "THAT THE BLESSING OF ABRAHAM MIGHT COME ON THE GENTILES THROUGH JESUS CHRIST; THAT WE MIGHT RECEIVE THE PROMISE OF THE SPIRIT THROUGH FAITH."

Affirmations

I AM A SON AND HEIR OF GOD THROUGH CHRIST. (GALATIANS 4:7)

I AM IN CHRIST JESUS. (GALATIANS 3:28)

THROUGH JESUS CHRIST I RECEIVE THE BLESSINGS OF ABRAHAM AND THE HOLY SPIRIT. (GALATIANS 3:14)
