When we think of the phrase "using someone", then most of us immediately have the idea of a person who is carnally manipulating someone else. Another way to think of it is "taking advantage" of someone. In Both cases, its wrong. But with God, using Him, is Faith. Let me explain.... Let say you paid $100,000 for your kid to have the opportunity to take up space in a 4 yr Ivy League College, where they'll turn them into a politically corrected Christ Rejecting Socialist the first 2 yrs, then bake them until well done, the final 2 yrs. Now, any College will do this to your child for your money, but those will, most especially. Yet, you paid to USE what they OFFER. So, in this case your using their educational system, is your right, it is what you have paid for, its what you are supposed to do. Sure. Now with God, ... He has paid with the Blood of Jesus, for you to come and use Him. If you are born again, then you have an open door of continual access to God, BECAUSE of what Christ has done for you. God actually sent the Bread Of Heaven down here to Die, so that by purchasing you back to Him with Christ's Blood, <>redeeming you for all eternity<>, you are given full access to God. 24/7, for as long as God lives. Listen, 100 yrs after you are passed from this earth an into God's glorious eternity, you wont even remember that you were here. So, what does it mean to be "Blood bought", and have full access to God? Its means you ALWAYS have full access to God. That's literally what it means to be redeemed. You are redeemed from judgement for your sin, (Hell).... & you are redeemed from the curse of the law, so that the Law is no longer your JUDGE. The Law can't judge the born again, and God won't judge the born again, because JESUS has already been judged and SLAIN....>HE DIED. = THERE IS YOUR JUDGEMENT DO YOU in ETERNITY......It fell on Jesus, on Earth. = The Cross. ITS GONE. !! When the new Testament tells you that Jesus is the Light of the world, and that you have been translated from darkness TO LIGHT, this means you have entered into a brand new eternal identity ("in Christ") and new situation. (New Creation IN Christ). You are now God's. Literally. Bought with a price. And that price is the Blood of Jesus. You are NOT your own. You are under NEW OWNERSHIP.... Jesus's BLOOD paid for you to belong to God, and not just until you mess up again... The Blood of Jesus, is the Grace of God, and where your sin is found, God's Grace is greater then your sin. IT not only covers it, but God does not even remember it. Romans 4:8 goes even deeper into the Revealed Light of Redemption. The Payment for all your sin Who Himself bled on the Cross...... is eternal, because the Blood that paid for your forgiveness is not ordinary Blood. No, its GOD's Blood. Jesus is God... And Jesus shed God's Blood for YOU, which is WHY its an eternal sacrifice... Once and for ALL. Tho, this Holy Redeeming Blood is only APPLIED by God to those who BELIEVE and are Born Again. Jesus said... "YOU MUST be Born again", and His Holy Blood poured out provides the only means that God accepts to accept you, or anyone. Its available to everyone. This SALVATION. This Free Gift of Righteousness. This justification before God, BY Faith...... But, not everyone will BELIEVE. Satan rejected God, because he wanted to be God. The angels that followed Satan, rejected God. Jesus the Christ, IS God. So, Unbelievers down here, CHRIST REJECTORS..... are doing what Satan and his followers did, up there, and the end result is the same for them all. Jesus said that if you do not believe in Him, believe that He alone is the Savior-Messiah, then you will die in your sin. And you'll do more then that. You'll meet God as eternal Judge upon your death, and you'll pay for your Christ Rejection, forever. So, reader, if you have not trusted in Christ, then do it now...... Now. If You will take Christ into you heart right now, then God will take you into His heart, forever...... That God's Promise. God is waiting for you, all your life. He is not Lost, YOU ARE....... So, once God's Redeeming Blood has made you GOD'S Child, His property, His BODY of CHRIST, BORN AGAIN....then as God's Body of Christ, God actually wants you to USE HIM constantly, by Faith. Now lets talk about that... God is Love, and God has a work. His work is to SAVE, HELP, to RESTORE, to BLESS, TO HEAL, and to ENLIGHTEN, all of His Children, and to finally transform them into the very likeness of Jesus The Christ when you meet Him. And allowing God by your Faith to help you, with EVERYTHING, is how you use God. Using God, is to allow Him by you Faith, to do for you what HE LOVES TO DO. As all this is just God manifesting His Love, as all these imputations. as all this HELP. Love, God's love, is God doing for you because He Loves you....... exactly Like He Gave Christ to you as a GIFT. If you are born again, then You already USED His offer, you accessed It, you took advantage of God's Goodness, when you trusted in and believed on Christ, and God Saved you. Using God, is to seek God by faith to do what His Love wants to do for you all the time. When you use Him, you are giving Him the FAITH that He says, pleases Him, and if you don't, you are not pleasing Him as He would want you to do it, constantly. Faith, is using God to give His supply into all your needs and create inside you the God type happiness that He wants you to have, "the Joy of the Lord". All this "riches in Glory" is gained when you by faith, use Him, and He thereby does His heavenly work for you as He WANTS TO DO. God loves to be used for your benefit. He wants to be used by your Faith, as this pleases Him. Be sure you do it.
In my time on this earth I've talked to "Christian" active homosexuals. "Christians" who say they can take the Mark because God really knows their hearts. "Christians" who openly cheat on their wives and family while still maintaining leadership roles in their church. And "Christians" who said that they could never love the God of the old testament because he was cruel, but they worship Christ because he was non-judging and is love. But this is a new one for me: Abortion Doctor Says He Kills Babies Because It’s His ‘Christian Calling’ https://www.westernjournal.com/abort...stian-calling/ Abortion Doctor Says He Kills Babies Because It’s His ‘Christian Calling’ By Randy DeSoto April 9, 2018 at 12:12pm A Mississippi OB-GYB recently stated that he sees it as his Christian “calling” to provide abortions. Dr. Willie Parker — who practices at the state’s only abortion facility, located in Jackson — wrote an Op-Ed for Glamour magazine attacking Mississippi’s Gestation Age Act. The legislation, signed by Gov. Phil Bryant last month, bans abortions after 15 weeks (i.e. four months into the pregnancy). The law notes that the unborn baby’s vital organs begin to function at 10 weeks, and by week 12, he or she has taken human form in all relevant aspects. Parker wrote in his Op-Ed, “As an ob-gyn and a Christian, I see it as my calling to help women in making the decisions that are right for their health, their lives, and their families. I believe it’s my duty to meet their needs without judgment. Not only do restrictive laws make it harder for me to do my job — this radical abortion ban is an assault on women across the South.” He argued, “Before the 15-week ban passed, Mississippi patients already faced multiple barriers to abortion, including a mandatory 24-hour waiting period, a mandatory ultrasound law, a 20-week ban, a ban on the use of telemedicine to administer a medication abortion, and a law that requires a minor to get parental consent before obtaining an abortion.” In an interview with AlterNet, Parker explained how he tries to ease women’s guilt about obtaining an abortion. A substantial portion of his practice is made up of African-Americans. “Many women of color are deeply religious, and I’m quite comfortable talking about the moral and spiritual center,” he explained. “So, I add that dimension to the care I provide. I call it dignity restoration.” Parker continued, “I sense when a woman is dealing with guilt and shame and I’m offer a bridging conversation around faith and the sacred decision of whether to end her pregnancy. Yesterday, for example, one patient was praying and asking for forgiveness, and so I explored that with her.” “For many women, there is a tremendous amount of relief in not being turned away. … There is relief in no longer being pregnant but also relief in someone seeing that ‘I’m not a bad person,’” he stated.

When Jesus declared on the Cross, "It is finished," He decreed to the earth and the world of darkness that they had lost. When Jesus arose from the grave, He fulfilled the legal requirements of the law and broke the curse of sin off the earth! Jesus secured everything for the Believer from the Cross of Calvary and the Resurrection from the grave, and satan knows he is powerless to stop God's Kingdom plan. BECAUSE OF OUR RESURRECTED SAVIOR, WE WIN! Colossians 2:12-15 (NKJV) - " ...[You were] buried with Him in baptism, in which you also were raised with Him through faith in the working of God, who raised Him from the dead. And you, being dead in your trespasses and the uncircumcision of your flesh, He has made alive together with Him, having forgiven you all trespasses, having wiped out the handwriting of requirements that was against us, which was contrary to us." Jesus' followers can see how the Cross had become the intersection of Heaven and earth. The supernatural traffic between Heaven and earth can flow freely through this intersection, and the supernatural life is available to us NOW: 1) Exchanging Punishment for Peace - Isa. 53:5 2) Exchanging Sickness for Healing - Isa. 53:4-5 3) Exchanging Sin for Righteousness - Isa. 53:10, 2 Cor. 5:21 4) Exchanging Curse for Blessing - Deut. 28:15-68 for Deut. 28:1-14 5) Exchanging Poverty for Wealth - 2 Cor. 8:9 6) Exchanging Threefold Death for Threefold Life - Heb. 2:9 He tasted death in three successive phases: (1) He was cut off from union and fellowship with the Father; (2) He was cut off from physical life; and (3) He was banished from God's presence like a scapegoat, carrying sin away. He was crucified and buried; He descended into Hades and rose again so that our redemption could be complete. In exchange, the gift of life to every Believer is: (1) union and fellowship with God; and (2) resurrection and eternal life in God's glorious presence. 7) Exchanging the Old Man for the New - Rom. 6:6; 8:10; Col. 2:11; Gal. 5:17-24 As we understand that our spirit is "quickened" by His Spirit we must – as God's design for Kingdom citizens – take dominion and multiply God's Kingdom on this earth as it is in Heaven! That is indeed the Believer's resurrection authority. ALBERT FINCH MINISTRY
