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)

Becoming A Burning Bush

Posted 02-28-2024 at 04:38 PM by Albert Finch

Luke 3:16-17 - "John answered and said to them all, "As for me, I baptize you with water; but One is coming who is mightier than I, and I am not fit to untie the thong of His sandals; He will baptize you with the Holy Spirit and fire."

Now the question is, who will burn in this generation? Who will press and receive a revelation that has the power to affect an entire group of people? The Father wants to empower His people with faith and insight that activates His plans in the earth now! He is raising up a people that will burn with revelation and release the Kingdom.

In Exodus 3, Moses is on the mountain of God when he encounters a burning bush. From the midst of fire, the voice of the Lord spoke, calling him back to purpose. There is a desperate need in this hour for people to hear clear direction and encounter the fiery presence of God. A sense of lethargy and confusion has gripped the hearts of many.


God's voice dwells in the midst of the fire! We are not just to look for burning bushes but we are actually to become burning bushes for His glory as we demonstrate and carry His love and His Kingdom into the world through dying to our personal agendas as we carry out our Christ calling! Fire consumes the sacrifice of our self-life as we bear fruit that remains for His Kingdom. (Romans 12:1-2)

"For our God is a consuming fire." - Hebrews 12:29

We are called to burn for Him and be voices of awakening. The Father desires to set regions ablaze with holy fire, but it will take surrendered ones who have come to understand their Christ identity and are burning. There are heavenly plans for transformation, awakening, and outpouring, but the plans look much different than the wisdom of man.

It will take those who fully yield and obey to give birth to Heaven's agenda for this hour which includes discipling and equipping the Body of Christ into and understanding of their Christ identity.

Mark 9:49 - "For everyone will be salted with fire."

You must push forward with your spiritual eyes open and carry a strong spirit of faith and authority in advancing in His purpose for your life. Cast out all false spirits and shake off their attacks.

You are called to burn for Him!

You are called to bear fruit that remains for His Kingdom and gain ground.

You are called to be a Heat Seeker!

Feel His cross, feel His blood – it is real, it is truth. He is alive forevermore and SO ARE YOU!
