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)

April 4, 2024 – Exhortation

The passionate pursuit of God will deliver you from the religious mindsets that attempt to bind and hinder you. Find freedom and victory as you move into a powerful place of pursuit in the Holy Spirit. Find the high places of the Holy Spirit!

Faith is the foundation for our authority. Believing the words of scripture is essential for our faith to be alive and active.

God wants to release His people from condemnation, fear, and shame. These are the foes of authority. They keep people hunkered down in a place of guilt. Realize the power of the Blood of Jesus. Repent and understand your rightful place of authority.

Much of what people experience is "false guilt" for things that have been forgiven a long time ago. Give glory to God by magnifying the Blood of Jesus and the power that abides here. Realize that His Blood is much more powerful than your past. Believe His forgiveness, be aware of your restoration, and move into God's purpose for your life.
