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 His Anoining And Glory

Posted 03-29-2024 at 07:46 PM by Albert Finch


"Go...and see what the land is, and whether the people who dwell in it are strong or weak, whether they are few or many, and whether the land that they dwell in is good or bad, and whether the cities that they dwell are camps or strongholds, and whether the land is rich or poor, and whether there are trees in it or not. Be of good courage and bring some of the fruit of the land." - Numbers 13:18-20

Caleb was a giant slayer in his spirit before he physically conquered any giants. We read the account of the twelve spies scouting out the Promised Land for forty days.

Sometimes, God is telling us to go forth into areas ordained for us to go. He goes before us to make a way, and we have a choice to make in that pivotal moment. We have to decide if we are going to partner with God and be of good courage, or if we are going to partner with our flesh and the voice of the enemy.



ANOINTING, GLORY AND EVERLASTING FRUITFULNESS

The majority of the spies saw themselves as grasshoppers, but Caleb initiated the dream of being a giant slayer.

Our perception will determine our level of victory, and it can affect generations following us. The vision goes beyond us, and if it does not then we have not adopted God's dream and God's vision.

Perception will deceive you into believing you have lost when you are already promised victory. We have His anointing and His glory, and we are to BEAR EVERLASTING FRUITFULNESS when we abide in the Vine that is Christ. We are to pioneer the way for our children and those we spiritually parent to slay the giants and to take the land for God.



A DIFFERENT KIND OF SPIRIT

Caleb refused to bow to fear and intimidation. He believed God's calling on his life to lead Israel into the Promised Land. God said of Caleb:

"Because he has a different spirit and has followed Me fully, I will bring him into the land into which he went, and his descendants shall possess it" - Numbers 14:24.

We are called to have a different spirit about us – the spirit of victory as we continually bear fruit for God’s advancing Kingdom through our Christ calling.

We were not created by a God with a grasshopper complex. When you see through the eyes of fire, your perspective changes, and you begin to see that God is using you to disciple a lineage of giant slayers and history-makers.

The next generation is being called forth as God sees them and not how we perceive them or what the world says about them. Mature believers and wise parents will desire for the next generation to grab the torch, take up the mantle, and run with the vision. Giant-slayers will produce giant-slayers because they answer the call of God to only believe.

As we walk in our Godly CALLING in Christ we declare ourselves to be giant-slayers in the spirit and to mentor a generation. We have the Caleb anointing to walk in unwavering faith and demonstration of the Word of God for a David generation. Naysayers sow nothing but discord and death, but giant slayers make history with God.
