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)

Utilizing Your True Identity

Posted 02-26-2024 at 04:10 PM by Albert Finch


"Come up here, and I will show you what must take place after these things." - Revelation 4:1, AMP

As we set our agendas aside in 2024 and come to Him -- we receive more than we could ever ask for and move you into a position that we never knew was possible."

STEPS TO POSITIONING FOR REVELATION:

1) Schedule consistent time to spend with the Lord, as you would any appointment.

2) Set aside your normal agenda and allow the Holy Spirit to guide you.

3) Steward well the revelation and instructions you have received previously through action.

God's invitation has been extended to all who desire to come and receive revelation. The revelation you receive is to be birthed this season. Declaration of these revelations will ignite the sparks for God to move you out of the confines and limitations of what you have experienced in the past.

STEPPING THROUGH THE THRESHOLD WILL REVEAL YOUR NEXT STEP

It is time to step all the way over the threshold (Revelation 4:1) to receive clarity. We will not be able to fully see if we are straddling the doorway. We have to be fully committed and step over. As we do, we will see the revealing of our next steps.

SEASON OF GREATER ANOINTING

Just as Gideon originally believed he was the weakest and the least, and then came to know the truth that he was indeed a mighty man of valor, we also must come to understand our Christ identity through affirming and meditating on the epistles of Paul.

Once the truth of his identity was established, Gideon was given an assignment from God with a great anointing

which led to an understanding of God’s purpose for his life.. (Judges 6:12-15).

The Lord is calling you to step into your calling in Christ, so the greater anointing can come upon you. Like Gideon, when he stepped into his identity, the Holy Spirit will come upon you in greater power (Judges 6:34). As you begin to believe in your oneness with Christ – you will step into God's PURPOSE FOR YOUR LIFE -- the greater anointing with greater power.

AWAKENING OF THE GENERATIONS

Being known by our anointing will unite us. Being labeled with the truth not only unites us, it releases strength beyond our expectation. God is calling us to arise, as the called generation, and take our positions operating in our anointing to move His Kingdom forward bearing fruit that remains.

Stand up and prophetically step over your threshold into this new season and declare:

I affirm and meditate on the epistles of Paul every day until I receive a true understanding of my Christ identity.
I expect revelation as I ask, knock, and seek to advance my Christ calling.
I step into a fruit-bearing season advancing God’s Kingdom.
