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)

Scripture Of The Day – March 16, 2022

Posted 03-16-2022 at 06:02 AM by Albert Finch (How Do I Advance My Spiritual Life?)

Revelation 1:6 - "and has made us kings and priests to His God and Father, to Him be glory and dominion forever and ever."

You have royalty garments -- you are a child of the King. the Lord will empower you to renew your mind! Yes, it's time to renew your mind concerning your identity. Rise up and make these declarations today; as you do you will shift into great faith and dominion:

"I have been cleansed from all sin due to the shed Blood of Jesus Christ...

Becoming A Burning Bush

Posted 03-15-2022 at 10:48 PM by Albert Finch (How Do I Advance My Spiritual Life?)

Luke 3:16-17 - "John answered and said to them all, "As for me, I baptize you with water; but One is coming who is mightier than I, and I am not fit to untie the thong of His sandals; He will baptize you with the Holy Spirit and fire."

Now the question is, who will burn in this generation? Who will press and receive a revelation that has the power to affect an entire group of people? The Father wants to empower His people with faith and insight that activates His plans...

Scripture Of The Day - March 15, 2022

Posted 03-15-2022 at 04:42 PM by Albert Finch (How Do I Advance My Spiritual Life?)

Many have become self-focused rather than God-focused. In other words, we focus on what we need rather than the One Who shed His Blood to provide what is needed. Matthew 6:33 says that we are to "...seek ye first the Kingdom of God, and His righteousness and all these things shall be added unto you"

We are to seek first God's Kingdom and "His" righteousness? This means that we are not righteous without Him and that we are to seek His righteousness (2 Corinthians...

Transcending The Veil Of Limitation

Posted 03-14-2022 at 11:22 PM by Albert Finch (How Do I Advance My Spiritual Life?)

"Search me, O God, and know my heart; try me, and know my anxieties, and see if there is any wicked way in me, and lead me in the way everlasting." - Psalm 139:23-24

The dreams we dream become the strategic road maps God gives to point us in the right direction to align us with destiny. Dreams contain power that will enable us to see what we were created to become. When we turn to the Lord we see Him as He is because the veils of limitation are taken away.

Posted 03-14-2022 at 05:48 PM by Albert Finch (How Do I Advance My Spiritual Life?)

"Therefore, prophesy and say unto them, thus saith the Lord GOD; Behold, O My people, I will open your graves, and cause you to come up out of your graves, and bring you into the land of Israel." - Ezekiel 37:12

Here God makes us a promise that He will bring us out of the darkness, opening our graves and allowing us to live again! We just have to listen and obey God's Word.

Are there areas of your life that need a touch of Heaven? Ezekiel promises us that...
