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 The Next Season

Posted 02-24-2022 at 12:36 AM by Albert Finch


"For God has not given us a spirit of fear but of power and love and self-control." (2 Timothy 1:7)

What you're going through right now is getting you ready for what's about to happen to you next in 2022! In fact, your 'next' is your 'now.' This is your season to be creative. You will design things that are not from you but from Him. Strategies are downloaded from Heaven and uploaded to you by God's choosing. People will be placed intentionally into areas of your life to help expedite your now into your "next."

During this time, the Lord will give you wisdom that will advance you in His purpose for your life. This is your time to take risks that may seem scary but are mandated by the Lord.

POWER OVER FEAR


"... Be strong and courageous! Do not tremble or be dismayed, for the Lord your God is with you wherever you go.” - Joshua 1:9

Fear stopped you from launching out into the deep before, but it won't be a factor for you in this season called "next." It has kept your mouth closed, stalled your momentum, and prevented you from walking in the destiny the Lord has mandated for your life. It held you back in the past, but it won't now.

You will begin to comprehend that fear is not an emotion, but a spirit which can be rebuked or cast out. You will realize you have power over it, in the name of Jesus, and start to walk in your calling with more power (Dunamis) and authority (exousia).

RESURGENCE OF GIFTS

"As everyone has received a gift, even so, serve one another with it, as good stewards of the manifold grace of God. If anyone speaks, let him speak as the oracles of God. If anyone serves, let him serve with the strength that God supplies, so that God in all things may be glorified through Jesus Christ, to whom be praise and dominion forever and ever. Amen." (1 Peter 4:10-11)

There will be a resurgence of the gifts you have not been utilizing. You thought that they were gone, but they were only dormant (asleep). This revival will cause them (your gifts) to be used in a greater capacity and level. As they increase, the Lord will open up new doors within ministry to use them.

DEFEATING THE DEMON OF DOUBT


Through affirmation, meditation, and visualization of the scriptures that have to do with your Christ identity, you will have a revelation of exactly who you are in Him. The demon of doubt that had you toiling in areas that you weren't called to because you second-guessed your position in Him will be defeated.

You will realize that a new level of the God-kind of confidence is now your portion. When you know who you are in Christ, the amount of oil (anointing/effectiveness) goes to another level. The effectiveness of your discipling will equip those for Kingdom service that you minister to.

YOUR "NOW" IS PREPARING YOU FOR YOUR "NEXT"

Your now is preparing you for your “next.” Your past wounds are healing and you're getting ready for a comeback. The ministry God has called you to will bankrupt Hell, set captives free, and liberate the persecuted.

Your discernment has grown sharper and clearer. You're seeing much now, in the spirit and the natural. What fooled you before cannot and will not fool you now. Allow the peace of God to guard and protect your heart in your season of "now" because the residue is going with you to your season called "next"!
