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)

Aligning With Eternal Truth

Posted 04-30-2024 at 10:15 PM by Albert Finch

"So God created mankind in his own image, in the image of God he created them; male and female he created them." - Genesis 1:27

Be alert and of sober mind. Your enemy the devil prowls around like a roaring lion looking for someone to devour. 1 Peter 5:8

The enemy seeks to make a weakened Christian a pawn in his game, as he manipulates and attempts to bring harm to the family of God. Satan whispers his crafty manipulations,steals our time, and drains us of spiritual passion.

Our Father longs for His sons and daughters to know and believe everything He has said about His love for them. Your Christianity is only as real as the love of Christ in your heart. We thank the Lord Jesus for overwhelming our heart with His love as we meditate on His love saturating our heart as we go throughout the day -- so we can nourish others with Life.


When we believe in our Christ identity, we are strengthened and built up in the faith, but when we exchange His truth for the lie of some other identity, we become weak and open our lives up to be victimized again and again by the devil who comes only to kill, steal and destroy (see John 10:10).

"...but those who hope in the Lord will renew their strength. They will soar on wings like eagles; they will run and not grow weary, they will walk and not be faint." - Isaiah 40:31


The enemy is terrified when God's children come into the true knowledge of who they are in Christ, all that Jesus won for them on the cross, and what they were created to do (God's PURPOSE for their life) -- because he knows that if they step into their true identity in Christ, they will walk in authority against his evil schemes and advance God's Kingdom (displacing His).

Believing lies creates a victim mentality, and creates a vulnerability consciousness which is susceptible to accusing God of not being just or faithful.

When we live according to an identity based on lies (from relatives, friends, co-workers etc.) we have believed, it downgrades our lives and causes the favor that we were created to walk in to dissipate.


When you come into the truth of who God created you to be through your identity as His son or daughter, it is important to begin living from that truth. It’s time for your calling in Christ to become a Kingdom quickening reality and ask, seek, and knock (Matthew 7:7) until you find the Kingdom elevating assignment God is giving you at this time.

When you break agreement with lies and begin to not only agree with truth but align your faith with truth (through AFFIRMING and MEDITATING on the Christ inheritance scriptures), then truth will break forth in and upon your life.

Now is the time for the sons and daughters of God to arise in truth, favor, and authority. Now is the time for you to arise and walk in your DESTINY in Christ that you were called to display to the world.

Be the Joshua God has ordained you to be – cross over and possess your land of fruit bearing that remains for God’s Kingdom.

Now is the time!
