How Will God Fulfill Your Destiny?

by Apostle Gabriel Cross

Sometimes, like Mary, the mother of Jesus, we wonder how God is going to fulfill the great prophecy over our lives; or why would he fulfill this through us? The truth of the matter is, “God is married to his word.” He and his word are one. He is actually obligated to his word. What he promised you, he is more than able and willing to fulfill indefinitely.

Though you may have been barren, you have been expecting, although well along in years, as was Elizabeth. Though it may seem unrealistic and highly impossible, like Mary.
Though it may go against customs and the norm of the systems, in your life, like Zechariah.
God is showing you favor and taking away your disgrace and reproach from among the people.

Like the prophet Habakkuk, God is about to do some things for you that if it were told you, you wouldn’t believe it. This was Zechariah’s and Mary’s first response, after God sent a prophetic angel named Gabriel. Zechariah and Mary alike responded “How can these things be since…”The prophetic word not only wasn’t something they knew before but it was also something they had never experienced.

Therefore, God is about to do some things in your life that have never been done before; God is making some things appear right in front of you that you’ve only been seeing in prayer and prophetic dreams and visions. God is causing supernatural reconciliation of old and new relationships that the enemy schemed would never happen. You are about to experience some things prophetically, you’ve never experienced before.

The manifestation is not only the “appearing of” but also the supernatural “disappearing of” as well.
We are in the season of manifestation. What time is it? Manifestation time, the year of prophetic fulfillment.

The year of the Lord’s eye or the eye of the Lord will guide. Guide, meaning God’s providence, God’s protection, and God’s provision. You have the eyes of the Spirit, to see with new vision. You expect the miraculous, you expect the impossible, you feel the intangible and you see the invisible. God has broken through your enemies of limitations over you. I repeat, God has broken through the enemies’ lines over you.

Micah 2:13, every limitation and barrier seen or unseen has been destroyed. Well done my good and faithful one. Faithful doesn’t mean you’ve done everything right but when you felt like quitting, you did not. You have been faithful over a few things, now I make you to rule and ruler over many things. Ruler over many things like Joseph.

Joseph had a dream and went through a time of trying and testing of that word, until the word of the Lord came true. Then the King sent and loosed him (this is the release of the apostolic sent dimension) and made him…Lord of his house and ruler of all his substance. (Psalm 105:19-21; Genesis 41:40). God is making you ruler of all your substance, instead of your substance ruling you.

Enter now into the Joy of my Rest. I hear the word perseverance, for you are giving birth, and for some, multiple births. You are highly favored of the Lord, empowered and anointed with God’s ability. For he or she who was thought to be barren, is now giving birth. For nothing is impossible with God!

The worship God wants from your heart and lips, in this season is, “Nevertheless, Lord let it be unto me according to your word.” As you embrace your “never-the-less,” God has some “Suddenlies” he’s about to release in your life…and suddenly God did this, and suddenly God did that…you may not know exactly how God is going to do what he has promised or birthed in you; nevertheless it’s always the best, prophesy over yourself today and say, “Nevertheless, let it be Lord unto me according to YOUR WORD LORD!”

Due to your compliance with the word of the Lord, your tongue has now been loosed to articulate the destiny of your life. Then sing like Mary, “…My soul glorifies the Lord and my spirit rejoices…for he has been mindful of the humble state of his servant”..Then sing like Zechariah, “Praise be to the Lord, the God of Israel, because he has come and redeemed me…shown me great mercy…rescued me from the hand of my enemies and enabled us to serve him without fear”…Worship Him! worship Him! Your worship is warfare! (Luke 1:5-80)

Wait a minute, I hear the word industrial. The strong stuff, large, more than just the normal, the extra strength, more than enough, plus a lot more for everybody else and their families too. God is shifting the anointing on his people in this very hour to that of an industrial dimension. Like the consumer, who normally purchases the residential product, has to scrub and dub and then the spot may or may not be completely removed; but the company purchases the commercial industrial strength product and the spot is completely removed effortlessly, without scrub and dub. We are about to experience the real meaning of effortless in our PURE Worship!

For God has translated us from the Land of Wondering, to the Land of Knowing; from the Land of Need More, to the Land of More Than Enough; from “Worry and Frustration Street” to “Expecting and Receiving Boulevard.”

Go ahead, gather some friends, celebrate, have a baby shower! (First natural then spiritual). It’s time, it’s your time, not your turn. The set time of the Lord is upon you, (Psalms 102:13). ” For God will arise and have mercy on (you) Zion, for the time has come, yes the set time to be favored by the Lord.” It’s manifestation time! Congratulations are in order for you!

You are leaving the old images, idols, wrong perceptions of you and you are receiving the Father’s perception and revelation of who you are. He created you in His image and his likeness, you reflect the Father. Therefore, you are disavowing the lies of the enemy just like Elijah did the prophets of Baal. See your beauty, your strength, and your authority. You look just like your Daddy, Abba God.

The New You Be Birthed Today!
In Yeshua’s name and Yeshua’s authority!

Yahweh Saves From Disaster!

by Hazel Straub

Yahweh, God in covenant with you and exists in your present, says, “Child you are mine. No need to be fearful. Even though you pass through flood waters, you will not drown, because I AM with you. Neither will you burn or smell of smoke, when go through fiery trials. No matter what the difficulty, I, Yahweh, dwells with you and saves you from disaster.”

“Don’t be afraid, I’ve redeemed you.
I’ve called your name. You’re mine.
When you’re in over your head, I’ll be there with you.
When you’re in rough waters, you will not go down.
When you’re between a rock and a hard place,
it won’t be a dead end—
Because I am God, your personal God,
The Holy of Israel, your Savior.
(Isaiah 43:2-3 MSG)

Meaning Of The Jezebel Spirit

by Apostle Gabriel Cross

The real meaning of the spirit of Jezebel is DISAMBIGUATION, there is no NOBILITY, unhusbanded (no true submission to anyone, not even God only oneself). Not exalted (but exalts oneself instead of Yahweh), impure (not pure in heart), corrupt (distorted in view), non-cohabitation (difficult to live with or have relationship with). Manipulative (nocuously controlling) perverted (subjugates the order of God, twists truths into lies, substitutes wrong for right). This spirit perverts marriages, divides marriages, churches, organizations, etc. (spirit of division), abandons the worship of Yahweh. Persecutor of prophets or prophetic, promotes the worship of Baal and murders the servants of Yahweh, (associates with false prophets or prophets, false prophecy, speaking from one’s own psyche instead of the heart of God). She is the daughter of Baal (false god, false worship) wife of King Ahab (usurps his authority and he works along with placating to Jezebel’s suggestions and desires. Spiritually castrating), ungodly domination, sheer wickedness, seduction, and witchcraft to have HER WAY (not Yahweh’s). Unrepentant, and controls out of fear.

But the prophet Elijah (name means God is Yahweh) prophesied Jezebel’s death and that she would be eaten by dogs. (1 Kings 22:29-40; 2 Kings 9:21-28; 9:30-37). Yahweh has given you that same prophetic anointing to prophesy her death and Ahab’s death, of those spirits in your life today!

The revelation Yahweh gave me today is, wordtwister. Jezebel is a wordtwister. This spirit always twists the word (Word of God, word of others, and word of correction), towards what she thinks but not what God thinks. This spirit tries to make you second guess what Yahweh has spoken, to retreat, and to stop doing what Yahweh has anointed you to do. Be empowered and encouraged warriors, against this spirit in your life today. This spirit resorts to playing the victim, all a part of a mastermind plan to regain control and destroy the very thing Yahweh built or said over your life. Be careful beloved, don’t allow this spirit to twist the word of The Lord to you.

I loose the Holy Spirit of the greater Elijah and Elisha, to rise up within you today and massacre that spirit along with everything connected to it, in Yeshua’s name and Yeshua’s authority!!!!! If it is in you or anyone you meet today, may you repent and love the “Word-twister” out, for it to never return. TODAY!

Extravagant Love!

by Hazel Straub

God loves us with extravagant love that is without measure. He views us through eyes of compassion, mercy and love. He spares us from his righteous judgment and protects us from harm, due to his giving his son, Yeshua the Messiah, to die for us.

He calls us to himself, calling us his children. As broken vessels, without hope, he heals, delivers and puts us back together again. He has promised to never leave or forsake us. Even before we realize our need, he is there, calling and drawing us to himself.

God desires that we come to him and rejoice in his loving kindness. Trust him to make the impossible, possible in your life. Thank him for his mercy and love that delivers us from judgment because of the blood of Yeshua applied to our lives.

“Keep yourselves in the love of God, looking for the mercy of our Lord Jesus Christ unto eternal life.” (Jude 1:21 KJV)

Heart

by Apostle Gabriel Cross

Heart.

“The heart is hopelessly dark and deceitful, a puzzle that no one can figure out. But I, God, search the heart and examine the mind. I get to the heart of the human. I get to the root of things. I treat them as they really are, not as they pretend to be.” (Jeremiah 17:9-10 MSG)

Lord, shine the light of your truth in my heart. Search my heart and purify it. Examine my mind and renew it by your Spirit. Change my heart for You. Heart.

Foes Vanquished

by Apostle Gabriel Cross

Yahweh just spoke this to me:

“…Don’t be afraid; stand confident and see the deliverance of Yahweh which He will work in you today. For the ENEMIES you have seen today YOU SHALL NEVER SEE AGAIN. Yahweh will fight for you, and you shall hold your peace and remain at rest.” (Exodus 14:13-14)

Remember The LORD’S Mercy Never Ceases

by Hazel Straub

Yahweh is merciful and does not treat us as we deserve but spares and rescues us from judgment, harm, danger, and trouble. His angels rescue and shield us from death, destruction, and accidents. Although we might notice, many times preoccupation with our immediate concerns blinds us to the car that narrowly missed hitting us, the disease that passed by, the thwarted thief, and the gun that misfired. The love of Yahweh preserves and rescues with incredible mercy!

Yet I still dare to hope
when I remember this:
The faithful love of the Lord never ends!
His mercies never cease.
Great is his faithfulness;
his mercies begin afresh each morning.

(Lamentations 3:21-23 NLT)

Friends

by Apostle Gabriel Cross

Your friends see the best in you. 
Your friends know all about you and still love you. 
Your friends mean well even when they hurt you but the faithful kisses of an enemy are to do you in.

Your friends are trustworthy if they correct you. 
Your friends sharpen you, as iron sharpens iron.
Your friends love at all times. 
Your friends cover your transgressions in prayer, but enemies will exploit them.

Your friends celebrate you when you’re rewarded.
Your friends are near in need and in deed.
Your friends never leave but remain friends for life.

Your friends will support you in love infinitely.
Your friends are forgiving and forbearing because the friendship is more valuable than their differences. 

“1 And it came to pass, when he had made an end of speaking unto Saul, that the soul of Jonathan was knit with the soul of David, and Jonathan loved him as his own soul. 3 Then Jonathan and David made a covenant, because he loved him as his own soul.” (1 Samuel 18:1-4 KJV)

Your friends will love you as they love themselves; knit together for life.
Go ahead thank God for Your Friends.

What Reveals Our Mindset And Heart?

by Hazel Straub

The children of Israel had wandered in the wilderness for about 38 years and were thirsty because they had no water to drink. They bitterly complained, so Moses and Aaron sought God’s counsel. God told Moses to speak to the rock and water would spring from it. Instead Moses used his staff to strike the rock twice bringing forth water, calling the people rebels and taking the credit for the water.

Instead of the power of the spoken word being demonstrated, the people associated the water with the wooden stick that Moses used and not speech that agrees with God, producing a miracle of supply. God’s glory and honor went to Moses and Aaron, so God was not respected before the people. Additionally, speech that agrees with God, requires more trust and faith, rather than using an object such as a stick that people could worship or view as magic. Moses and Aaron disobeyed God, causing them to not enter the Promised Land.

Our speech reveals our mindset and our heart. Out of our mouth proceeds either life or death that flows from our heart. It shows either obedience or rebellion to God, as our voice affects the lives of many. May your tongue bring blessing and life, honoring God.

Now there was no water for the community, and the people gathered in opposition to Moses and Aaron. They quarreled with Moses and said, “If only we had died when our brothers fell dead before the LORD! Why did you bring the LORD’s community into this wilderness, that we and our livestock should die here? Why did you bring us up out of Egypt to this terrible place? It has no grain or figs, grapevines or pomegranates. And there is no water to drink!” Moses and Aaron went from the assembly to the entrance to the tent of meeting and fell facedown, and the glory of the LORD appeared to them. The LORD said to Moses, “Take the staff, and you and your brother Aaron gather the assembly together. Speak to that rock before their eyes and it will pour out its water. You will bring water out of the rock for the community so they and their livestock can drink.” So Moses took the staff from the LORD’s presence, just as he commanded him. He and Aaron gathered the assembly together in front of the rock and Moses said to them, “Listen, you rebels, must we bring you water out of this rock?” Then Moses raised his arm and struck the rock twice with his staff. Water gushed out, and the community and their livestock drank. But the LORD said to Moses and Aaron, “Because you did not trust in me enough to honor me as holy in the sight of the Israelites, you will not bring this community into the land I give them.” These were the waters of Meribah, where the Israelites quarreled with the LORD and where he was proved holy among them. (Numbers 20:2-13 NIV)

Breakthrough, Deliverance And Glory

by Apostle Gabriel Cross

I’m stirring the giftings and graces, of the Holy Spirit, in you. I’m calling you. I’m placing you, where no flesh can hinder you. I’m crowning you with breakthrough, deliverance, and glory, which are all a part of my love. That which has held you back, discouraged you, designed to bury you and snuff you out, is only going to propel you and impel you into greater glory, greater power, and greater authority.

Look up, look up to me, and all my glory! I have not forgotten you, nor will I forget you. I will cause you to rise, with new wings of faith. I will cause you to soar, in greater depths of my love.

Those things that you have put before me, held as sacred, and used with pride, lay them down. Every idol, every way of idolatry, every false way, every striving way of the flesh.

I am here to comfort you. I am here to heal you. I am here to restore all that you’ve lost and all that you think you’ve lost.  It is my desire to crown you with glory. Be free from yourself. Be free from your fears. Be free from your own routine of worship, and worship me with a new heart, and a new desire.  I desire your worship, I desire you.

I dismantle you from the old and mantle you with the new. I am all that I said, I am and I will be all that you need me to be and so much more. New freedom, new freedom, new freedom, new freedom. Higher realms, higher realms, higher realms, access granted. I release you in your spirit, your soul, your body, your family, your relationships, your finances, your occupations, yes, your God-ordained destiny!

Live!

by Apostle Gabriel Cross

We are incapable of planning to do everything perfect. Therefore, ENJOY YOUR LIFE on PURPOSE. LIFE is better LIVED than planned.

We all have issues but Ezekiel 16:6 says, “And when I passed by you, and saw you polluted in your own blood (issues), I said to you when you were in your blood (issues), LIVE; yes, I said to you when you were in your blood (issues), LIVE.”

God Provides

by Apostle Gabriel Cross

During this time in our economy, there is great shortage, depression, trauma, and concern, about the welfare of our nation.  But God has a plan of provision. What God passions, he has a purpose for and what he purposes, he gives a passion for and always provides.

Look through the glasses of God’s provision. Whatever you need, God will supply. Yeshua is your super provision. There is a surplus in heaven. Stand in God’s provision. We have riches in glory, which we pull down into the earth realm. Look at your life and see God’s provision for your life, family, and community. He is faithful to you.

If he is Lord of your vision, he is Lord of your provision. Doubts and fears are removed. We should worship God as our source, our provider and the sustainer of our lives. Focus on him. My God will provide all you need. Dig deep inside your life, inventory, and see what God is doing. Thank him for his provision. In this season, we are encouraged with God, as our provision for America and throughout the world.

“Indeed I have all and abound. I am full, having received from Epaphroditus the things sent from you, a sweet-smelling aroma, an acceptable sacrifice, well pleasing to God. And my God shall supply all your need according to His riches in glory by Christ Jesus.” (Philippians 4:18-19 KJV)

What Is Heart Worship?

by Apostle Gabriel Cross

Pure, Genuine, Authentic, from the heart Worship, for the Yeshua the King. As a worship leader, psalmist, minstrel, and still endeavoring and emerging to worship, I’ve discovered that many times we have failed to give God what he desires.

Oftentimes, we give Yahweh a “Cain offering,” which is giving to God what “you” want to give. However, an “Abel offering,” is giving God what he desires and requires. Our spiritual assignment, as we gather is not to manipulate people’s emotions, pump and prime the audience, or make the people get into the presence of the King. Our agenda is HEAVEN, our assignment is to solely minister to the King of kings, simply be in the presence of the King. Provide an atmosphere that is conducive for the King.

Some of us have become major user-friendly churches but not God friendly habitations. Some of us are more consumed with having many numbers in attendance in lieu of being consumed with Christ, our Hope of Glory. Then we say to The Lord, “Have your way,” but if he begins to move we want to dictate the move or put him on a time constraint. Praise and Worship is entertainment for the audience and not entertaining the audience of One-the King. We are more motivated by the display of someone’s talent, than the pure presence of The Lord.

Lord, I’m sorry for the things I’ve made it, when it’s supposed to be about you. Lord, draw us back to the HEART of WORSHIP…YOU LORD…Selah

Prayer To Start The Day!

by Hazel Straub

Today, start the day fresh in God’s presence, in his Word and ask him to cleanse you.

How would I discern the waywardness of my heart? Lord forgive my hidden flaws whenever you find them. Keep cleansing me, God, and keep me from my secret, selfish sins; may they never rule over me! For only then will I be free from fault and remain innocent of rebellion. So may the words of my mouth, my meditation-thoughts and every movement of my heart be always pure and pleasing, acceptable before your eyes, Yahweh, my only Redeemer, my Protector. (Psalm 19:12-14 TPT)

Your Gift Makes Room

Yahweh At Your Side!

by Hazel Straub

Feeling discouraged, thinking that nothing is working for you? When it seems there is no way out of your dilemma, call to Yahweh (your covenant keeping God, who is with you today), for help.  He fights and wins your battles and is always besides you. Yahweh is your strength and refuge, there is no reason to fear. He saves you, from all your enemies, and causes you great joy. You always win, with him at your side!

Yahweh is my strength, and Yahweh is the reason I sing;
Yahweh has been there to save me in every situation.
In the tents of the righteous soldiers of  Yahweh.
There are shouts of joy and victory. They sing:
“The right hand of the Yahweh has shown His power.
The mighty arm of the Yahweh is raised in victory;
the right hand of Yahweh has shown His power.” (Psalm 118: 14-16 Voice)

The Love Of My Life–Jesus Christ

by Apostle Gabriel Cross

The one I LIVE to impress, please, and be approved of doesn’t ever change his status but always changes me. He doesn’t post what’s on His mind, but I’m always on his. He doesn’t only hit the like button but has hit the LOVE button for over 2000 years and counting. He is the Love of my life, the Lover of my heart and The Lord of my Blog. He is Jesus Christ, get to know him, he loves you very much…Selah

Streams In The Desert

by Hazel Straub

It is a new season. Release, surrender and let go of the things that would keep you from living joyfully. God has new and fresh delights for you. Let the past go and enter unencumbered into the new. Shake off yesterdays’ failures and excess baggage. The past is to stay in the past. Enjoy the new. Expand your vision and expectations so you can live in the fullness of the new and enjoy rest in Jesus. Allow the love of God to fill and change you.

 “Stop dwelling on the past. Don’t even remember these former things.  I am doing something brand new, something unheard of. Even now it sprouts and grows and matures. Don’t you perceive it? I will make a way in the wilderness and open up flowing streams in the desert.” (Isaiah 43:18-19 TPT)

Guard The Gates Of Your Heart!

by Hazel Straub

Our thought life is very important. We must guard what comes in through our eye gates, ear gates, taste gates, touch gates, and our sense of smell gates. If we feed on worry, fear, negativity, inflation, and bad news, we will exist depressed, defeated and deprived of sleep. Instead, when we meditate on the best, the truth and the goodness of Jesus Christ, praise and song bursts forth from us. Our sleep is sweet and peace surrounds us.

Don’t be pulled in different directions or worried about a thing. Be saturated in prayer throughout each day, offering your faith-filled requests before God with overflowing gratitude. Tell him every detail of your life, then God’s wonderful peace that transcends human understanding, will guard your heart and mind through Jesus Christ. Keep your thoughts continually fixed on all that is authentic and real, honorable and admirable, beautiful and respectful, pure and holy, merciful and kind. And fasten your thoughts on every glorious work of God,  praising him always. Put into practice the example of all that you have heard from me or seen in my life and the God of peace will be with you in all things. (Philippians 4:7-9 TPT)

Love One Another

by Apostle Gabriel Cross

Pure worship, in its prime, is doing for someone else what you wished someone would have daily done for you without being credited, quoted, or promoted.

How we love each other is how the world will know that we are his…

Major on the degree of character development, minor on the degree of gift demonstration. It is by our love for one another, not our ministry gifts, gifting, revelations, nor prophetic and apostolic demonstrations but our love for one another for the world will know that we are God’s disciples.

Yahweh’s Great Kindness!

by Hazel Straub

Yahweh, our covenant keeping God is with us. He is our refuge and shelter from all that would harm us. He is trustworthy and deserves all our worship.

Your kindness is so great!
You reserve it for those who fear you.
Adam’s descendants watch
as you show it to those who take refuge in you.
You hide them in the secret place of your presence
from those who scheme against them.
You keep them in a shelter,
safe from quarrelsome tongues.
Thank Yahweh!
He has shown me the miracle of his mercy
in a city under attack.
When I was panic-stricken, I said,
“I have been cut off from your sight.”
But you heard my pleas for mercy when I cried out to you for help.
Love Yahweh, all you godly ones!
Yahweh protects faithful people,
but he pays back in full those who act arrogantly.
Be strong, all who wait with hope for Yahweh,
and let your heart be courageous.
(Psalm 31:19-24 NOG)

Choose To Walk In Love

by Apostle Gabriel Cross

WHEN YOU CHOOSE TO WALK IN LOVE. Those who oppose Yahweh in you, who destructively criticize you, despise you, waiting for your demise, setting traps for you, zealously jealous of you, trying to sabotage you by telling lies, doing witchcraft against you, campaigning to bring others against you. One way in front of you and another way behind, IMMEDIATELY BECOME POWERLESS! LOVE is the new power-trip! FORGIVE, so you can LIVE!!!!!

Learning Love

by Apostle Gabriel Cross

I know it is a little lengthy but when you have a chance, mull over this please?

I have learned and am still learning that what Yahweh values, more than us doing everything perfectly, is our hearts being perfectly and completely his. I was raised, cultured, and taught to think that I was terrible or not good enough, if I messed up or did not do everything right. Shameful, shame on me when I messed up. However, this is not the relationship Yahweh wanted nor desires us to have. First of all, he replaces our shame with joy, grace, glory and great inheritance. 

“Because you got a double dose of trouble and more than your share of contempt, Your inheritance in the land will be doubled and your joy go on forever.” (Isaiah 61:7) 

Yahweh’s glory and beauteous love within, puts our enemies to shame and dresses our accusers in clothes dirty with shame. (Psalms 109:26-29) There is no shame in his Presence. The more we are in Abba’s Presence, the more we become shameless. 

Even when we are weak or tempted. He encourages us to rejoice, and boast in him. 

2 Corinthians 11:30 If I must needs glory, I will glory of the things which concern mine infirmities. 2 Corinthians 12:5 Of such an one will I glory: yet of myself I will not glory, but in mine infirmities. 2 Corinthians 12:9 And he said unto me, My grace is sufficient for thee: for my strength is made perfect in weakness. Most gladly therefore will I rather glory in my infirmities, that the power of Christ may rest upon me.

Glory – (to boast) to vaunt or brag (in a good sense):–(make) boast, glory; to pray to God; 

Infirmities – feebleness (of mind or body); malady; morally, frailty:–disease, infirmity, sickness, weakness. Strengthless, impotent; any disorder or disease of the body, especially one that is chronic or deepseated.

The Father desires us to glory, rejoice, boast in him, and pray to him in our feebleness of mind, weaknesses, and strengthless moments. We are called to glory in our infirmities that the power of Christ will rest upon us. Again, there is no room for shame in the Presence of Yahweh. 

I am so ecstatic and relieved in knowing and learning the love he has for me, and for you. Yahweh is all about our relationship with him not our religion with each other. One thing that is permanent and unconditional, is the love Yahweh has for you. You can also rest assured that Yahweh will never divorce nor break up with you. Our broken hearts are attractive to Him because he mends, restores, and gives us new hearts, like his. In lieu of living your life scared to do something wrong or living in fear, be afraid not to receive the perfect ferocious love Abba has for you. Receive his love, by learning to forgive yourself and love yourself, exactly the way the Father does. 

The next major move of the Father within the body of Christ, is being intentionally relational with Yahweh and being intentionally relational with each other. Versus putting on airs, being pretentious, and acting like you are something you are really not. I encourage you today, to learn the love and discern the heart of the Father for you and not the opinionated impulses of others or what we have made the church to be. You are not being religiously graded and monitored, but perfectly, supernaturally, and unequivocally loved…Selah

Change Your Focus!

by Hazel Straub

Change begins with the mind. As a man thinks, so is he. Whatever thoughts you dwell and meditate upon is what you become. Focus your mind on God, not your struggles and change will manifest from your inside to the outside of you.

Cry out to God and ask him for help! He hears and answers.

So here’s what I want you to do, God helping you: Take your everyday, ordinary life—your sleeping, eating, going-to-work, and walking-around life—and place it before God as an offering. Embracing what God does for you is the best thing you can do for him. Don’t become so well-adjusted to your culture that you fit into it without even thinking. Instead, fix your attention on God. You’ll be changed from the inside out. Readily recognize what he wants from you, and quickly respond to it. Unlike the culture around you, always dragging you down to its level of immaturity, God brings the best out of you, develops well-formed maturity in you. (Romans 12:1-2 MSG)

God’s Love Never Ceases

by Apostle Gabriel Cross

God’s love will never cease for you, so we should never cease loving each other. This is how the world will know that we are His, by how we love each other. Love will never cease. No matter how many wrongs, we commit, God’s love remains the same.

Father, help us, no matter how many times others have wronged us, let our love remain the same towards them. Love will never cease  and I will never cease to love.

Believe And Obey

by Hazel Straub

Believe in God without doubt
Believe in all his promises.
Believe and have faith in his love.
Faith takes firm action to obey God’s Word.

My dear brothers and sisters, what good is it if someone claims to have faith but demonstrates no good works to prove it? How could this kind of faith save anyone? For example, if a brother or sister in the faith is poorly clothed and hungry and you leave them saying, “Good-bye. I hope you stay warm and have plenty to eat,” but you don’t provide them with a coat or even a cup of soup, what good is your faith? So then faith that doesn’t involve action is phony. (James 2:14-17 TPT)

Herod’s Spirit Is Dead In Your Life!

by Apostle Gabriel Cross

In Yeshua’s authority and Yeshua’s name, I come against every spirit of Herod. Just like during Jesus’ birth, Herod tried to destroy God’s promise, by having every child in Bethlehem killed. What Yahweh has PROMISED YOU, WILL NOT BE DESTROYED!

“When Herod the king had heard these things, he was troubled, and all Jerusalem with him.”

(Dealing with the spirit of Herod-pay attention to how some people may be influenced by this spirit; some will be exemplary of this spirit through words and actions rooted in fear, jealousy, and intimidation, of what you are carrying (SPIRITUAL BABY OR BABIES).)

“And when he had gathered all the chief priests and scribes of the people together, he demanded of them where Christ should be born.” (Those with the spirit of Herod will even try to gather against you but remember Yah is more than the whole world against you and no weapon formed against you will prosper. Be careful, who you share information with concerning your SPIRITUAL BABY OR BABIES, you can’t share with everyone what God has spoken, until the time.)

“And he sent them to Bethlehem, and said, ‘Go and search diligently for the young child; and when ye have found him, bring me word again, that I may come and worship him also.’” (EVERYONE IS NOT GOING TO BE HAPPY AND WORSHIP GOD WITH YOU, some have Herodias WORSHIP. They only seek to kill what you have been divinely given, by God. This is a very deceptive spirit, it will even try to come close to you, to spy our your liberty, gathering information concerning you, to inhibit and destroy you.)

“And being warned of God in a dream that they should not return to Herod, they departed into their own country another way.” (Pay attention to your prophetic dreams and visions in this season, Yahweh is speaking to his people leading them into all truth, protecting that which belongs to Him. Don’t let your dreams die, they are REAL. KEEP PUSHING! I pray that every spirit of Herod is EXPOSED, REVEALED, AND TAKEN OUT, in your life today!

“And when they were departed, behold, the angel of the Lord appeareth to Joseph in a dream, saying, Arise, and take the young child and his mother, and flee into Egypt, and be thou there until I bring thee word: for Herod will seek the young child to destroy him. Then Herod, when he saw that he was mocked of the wise men, was exceeding wroth, and sent forth, and slew all the children that were in Bethlehem, and in all the coasts thereof, from two years old and under, according to the time which he had diligently enquired of the wise men. 

(We speak death and destruction against every spirit of Herod in your life; every spirit of abortion, premature death, sabotage, and murder. We loose the ferocious love of the Lion of Judah, against the spirit of Herod and declare you powerless in the presence of the Lord. The spirit of Herod is intimated by authenticity, keep being real. The spirit of Herod is the spirit of false worship, it is not pure but counterfeit. KEEP WORSHIPPING. This spirit doesn’t worship God, for who he is but because it wants something, in order to abort the move of God, in someone. The spirit of Herod is a bullying spirit of rage and anger that lashes out at you because of what Yahweh has placed in you. This spirit attempts to assassinate you, your gifts, your character, your dreams, etc. This spirit also attempts to destroy the young, the youth, new converts, new ideas, or even the youth being renewed in you. However, we loose warring angels to do battle against all Herodias activity in your life. We release the judgment of God against every dynasty and ruling spirit of Herod in your life and burn away all its effects.)

“But when Herod was dead, behold, an angel of the Lord appeareth in a dream to Joseph in Egypt.” (Matthew 2:3, 4, 8, 12, 13, 16, 19)

I HAVE A DREAM THAT JUST CAME TO PASS, IN YOUR LIFE. The spirit of HEROD IS DEAD in your life, PASS IT ON!!!!!!!!!

The Love Of God Not Based On Merit

by Hazel Straub

The unchanging love of God is not based on merit or performance. There is no greater love than to lay down your life for your friends. Love covers a multitude of sin. It produces mercy, compassion and grace, which freely flow from the throne of God, to us. As we receive, we are called to give the same to others, without charge, worthiness or measure.

Lord, help me love like you!

“This is my command: that you keep on loving each other just as I have loved you. No one has greater love than a person who lays down his life for his friends. You are my friends, if you do what I command you. I no longer call you slaves, because a slave doesn’t know what his master is about; but I have called you friends, because everything I have heard from my Father I have made known to you.” (John 15:12-15 CJB)

The Love Of Jesus

by Hazel Straub

Jesus, your love transforms and changes our lives
We merely abide in your love with no need to strive
Your love has no meter or measure for our performance
No decrease or increase due to defiance or compliance

Jesus, it’s amazing how you love us with no expectations
To deeper depths and lofty heights in life’s celebrations
We worship you Yeshua, our friend, help, love, life and light
We give you reverential honor and homage pay with delight

And walk in love, as Christ loved us and gave himself up for us, a fragrant offering and sacrifice to God. (Ephesians 5:2 ESV)

Look With God’s Vision!

by Hazel Straub

Open and lift up your eyes and look. Whatever you see you will own. If you see opportunity and a place to occupy, you will possess it and live blessed.

If you look, with eyes of judgment, condemnation and criticism, you will be blinded to the true riches that lie before you, and miss your blessing. Look with God’s vision, and see his provision for you.

Now faith brings our hopes into reality and becomes the foundation needed to acquire the things we long for. It is all the evidence required to prove what is still unseen. This testimony of faith is what previous generations were commended for. Faith empowers us to see that the universe was created and beautifully coordinated by the power of God’s words! He spoke and the invisible realm gave birth to all that is seen. (Hebrews 11:1-3 TPT)

How You Do You Think?

by Hazel Straub

What do you think? Your thoughts decide how your life goes. If your thoughts are negative, negativity and bitterness will flow from you. If you think thoughts of love and acceptance this will flow from your life.

Many opportunities and doors can open in front of you. But if You think that nothing good comes your way, the opportunity, due to your blind spot, is missed.

Lord, give me your eyes to see clearly. May the meditation of my heart be acceptable, in your sight.

For as he thinks in his heart, so is he. As one who reckons, he says to you, eat and drink, yet his heart is not with you (but is grudging the cost.) (Proverbs 23:7 AMP)

Prophetic Forecast Heavy Rain Showers

The meaning and symbolism of the word - «Rain»


by Apostle Gabriel Cross

It is really raining! I decree over your life, that as it is raining violently, so shall it rain violently, with showers of blessing, on you today. Prophetic forecast calls for heavy rain showers, from the cloud of glory over you. You do not need an umbrella but be satiated with blessing, favor, wisdom, power, reconciliation, and everything you need today! 

25 And I will make with them a covenant of shalom, and will cause the evil beasts (demons) to cease out of the land: and they shall dwell safely in the wilderness, and sleep in the woods.

26 And I will make them and the places round about my hill a blessing; and I will cause the shower to come down in his season; there shall be showers of blessing. (Shower violently with rain. Yahweh comes on bended knee to bless and prosper you.)

27 And the tree of the field shall yield her fruit, (multiplication, production, fruitfulness) and the earth shall yield her increase (wealth), and they shall be safe in their land, and shall know that I am Yahweh, when I have broken the bands of their yoke, (deliverance from bondage) and delivered them out of the hand of those that served (enslaved them) themselves of them.

Love And Kindness

by Hazel Straub

Love flows from God to us, so we can release it to others. What follows is God’s wisdom for relationships, from the Apostle Paul.

You are always and dearly loved by God! So robe yourself with virtues of God, since you have been divinely chosen to be holy. Be merciful as you endeavor to understand others, and be compassionate, showing kindness toward all. Be gentle and humble, unoffendable in your patience with others. Tolerate the weaknesses of those in the family of faith, forgiving one another in the same way you have been graciously forgiven by Jesus Christ. If you find fault with someone, release this same gift of forgiveness to them. For love is supreme and must flow through each of these virtues. Love becomes the mark  of true maturity. (Colossians 3:12-14 TPT)

Who Are You?

by Hazel Straub

Orphans focus on the lack in their life. “I need this and I need that.” They compete and strive for attention with other orphans because they think they won’t get what need, as they feel alone. They beg for notice, are insecure and fear abandonment. They compare themselves to others, without knowing their identity.

Sons focus on what they have. Sons live in their father’s house and have access to their father that provides all their needs. They know their father takes good care of them and they have access to him because they are sons. Their father loves them and they know he is available because they carry their father’s name and are sons.

Are you a son or an orphan, when you come before your Daddy God in prayer? He has promised to never leave you because you are his son. Your inheritance is the same as his son, Jesus the Messiah. He provides for all your needs, so you will not lack or want.

God decided in advance to adopt us into his own family by bringing us to himself through Jesus Christ. This is what he wanted to do, and it gave him great pleasure. So we praise God for the glorious grace he has poured out on us who belong to his dear Son. He is so rich in kindness and grace that he purchased our freedom with the blood of his Son and forgave our sins. He has showered his kindness on us, along with all wisdom and understanding. (Ephesians 1:5-8 NLT)

Look At The Lord!

Overwhelming Problems?

Photo by Javad Esmaeili on Pexels.com

by Hazel Straub

Frustrated that your knowledge, wisdom, and ways of tackling the problems that confront you do not work? Our issues will not be solved by men’s wisdom but only by dependence on Yahweh. In 1 Samuel 17, Israel was confronted by foreigners, the Philistines, invading their land. The armies faced each other from a distance and a champion for the enemy arose, making threats. This champion was much larger and taller than the Israelites and had flashy weapons and armor. The Israelites ran away in terror and this happened for forty days. Then a young teenager, who watched his father’s sheep came to give provisions to his older brothers, who were part of the Israelite army. This young man had a different perspective. He had a close relationship with Yahweh and had killed a a bear and lion that had threatened to kill the sheep, he watched. He saw the issue, as one of trusting Yahweh, not in the size of the champion or how things looked in the natural. Based on his relationship with Yahweh, his covenant keeping God, he came in His name with a slingshot and a stone. God gave this young man, David, the victory and the giant champion, Goliath, met his own death and the intruders, fled. The human perspective viewing the size of the problem has nothing to do with its defeat.

We too can come in the name of Yahweh through His one and only son, Jesus, and see victory over what seems in the natural, an unbeatable foe. With Yahweh, nothing is impossible, when we trust in Him, and he gives us victory! Personal relationship and trust in Yahweh fighting with us, gives us the strength to conquer all the troubles facing us! Hallelujah!

Some find their strength in their weapons and wisdom, but my miracle-deliverance can never be won by men. Our boast is in Yahweh our God, who makes us strong and gives us victory! (Psalms 20:7 TPT)

Wonderfully Created In God’s Image!

by Hazel Straub

God created you in his image. Self-hatred and failing to love yourself rejects God Your Creator. Accept that God has made you in his likeness. You are a wonderful work of God! Cry out to God for his mercy, so you can love and accept yourself. His mercy will then flow and he will help you grow into loving how he has made you. Thank God for you!

“For You did form my inward parts; You did knit me together in my mother’s womb. I will confess and praise You for You are fearful and wonderful and for the awful wonder of my birth! Wonderful are Your works, and that my inner self knows right well. My frame was not hidden from You when I was being formed in secret [and] intricately and curiously wrought [as if embroidered with various colors] in the depths of the earth [a region of darkness and mystery].” (Psalm 139:13-15 AMPC)

Father God Manifests The Glory

Put the RESPONSIBILITY back on the Lord! He is more than willing and able. It’s not your responsibility to manifest the Glory that’s the Father’s. You worship, witness, and pray, leave the results and spiritual mechanics to God.

The Real Issue

by Apostle Gabriel Cross

Oftentimes, we try so many things, pray so many prayers, and listen to so many voices, but yet overlook where the real issue is. The heart. When my heart’s changed, everything about me changes…When my heart’s changed.
