Eating From The Tree Of Life

Posted 09-14-2021 at 04:17 AM by Albert Finch (How Do I Advance My Spiritual Life?)

If we limit God by what we see in the natural, we can easily become double-minded concerning our future and God's promises. James 1:8 speaks about those who are double-minded as being "uncertain" (unstable) in all their ways. When we are unstable and not completely focused on God's Word, we can fall or stumble along the way. None of us enjoys stumbling – it can be harmful to our health...and spiritual vision! With today's challenges we must have supernatural vision to remain in a position...

Scripture Of The Day - September 13, 2021

Posted 09-13-2021 at 12:43 PM by Albert Finch (How Do I Advance My Spiritual Life?)

Malachi 3:6 - "I am the Lord, and I do not change..."

Even if we become faithless, God remains faithful. As humans, we often change toward people when they change toward us, but God does not do that. He is who He is, and nothing we do (or don't do) changes that fact.

It is awesome to think about how Jesus abides in us, and therefore, we are never alone -- we are never without hope and strength. As we repent from our sins, His forgiveness for past, present,...

Mined From The Quarry Of God's Kingdom

Posted 09-12-2021 at 09:35 PM by Albert Finch (How Do I Advance My Spiritual Life?)

Consider the ROCK from which you were cut, the quarry from which you were mined. - Isaiah 51:1-2,

Our adversary has been busy in an effort to distract us and dull our memory of who we are and Whose we are, where we've come from and where we're going. Religious spirits are experts at getting us to fear things we do not understand, compare ourselves to others, and compete with one another.

Even as a child, the enemy tried to subvert or supplant our view of who we are...

Understanding the Atonement

Posted 09-12-2021 at 08:42 PM by MysticPhD

I make no claim to a perfect understanding, but I have evinced a rational explanation of what Jesus represents and what He achieved that is internally consistent and compatible with the Christian narrative. Of course, it needs to be reinterpreted using the revealed character of God (Holy Spirit) as demonstrated by Jesus Christ as depicted on the Cross. It represents decades of effort and is my best understanding of what is and has been inscrutable for millennia.

My view removes the...

Responding To God

Posted 09-10-2021 at 10:48 PM by Albert Finch (How Do I Advance My Spiritual Life?)

Some people think their calling is to sit in church and support someone else's vision.

While it's good to do all you can to encourage someone and support them – each of us has our own CALLING in Christ Jesus. And at the end of the road, Jesus is going to ask you, "What did you do with the anointing I put in your life?"


Everyone (all born-again believers) has the witness of the Spirit, or the anointing, within them....
