Look At The Lord!

by Apostle Gabriel Cross

The Word of God is accepted by some and rejected by others. During our walk, we can become sidetracked. The enemy gets you focused on the problem and not the Lord and he takes your strength. Get under the blood, confess your sin and get moving.

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

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.

Think About The Goodness Of God

by Hazel Straub

I will meditate also of all your work, and talk of your doings. (Psalm 77:12 KJV)

God does mighty wonderful acts for us every day. He protects us from harm, provides for our needs, gives us family, friends and fellow believers. He shows mercy to us and does not treat us as we deserve but redeems us. He loves us, forgives, and directs our lives. He talks to us and nurtures us, He gives us so much more than we give him.

Think about how God brings love, savor and flavor to our lives. He gives us peace in chaos. Talk about his deeds and goodness to others.

Apostolic Prayer Against The Spirit Of Abortion

by Apostle Gabriel Cross

We wreck and destroy every plan of the enemy concerning us today. 

The spirit of abortion – it is described as death but also before you even start a thing, plan or a goal, this spirit influences you, with feelings of defeat and failure. It works with having a defeated thought life, thoughts of death, discouragement, hopelessness, fear of trying, fear of failing or succeeding. It wants the things of Yahweh, dreams of Yahweh, and the giftings of Yahweh inside you, to die. The things with which the Father impregnated you. It desires these things to die, to wilt and wither away. Then you will not fulfill your destiny. The spirit of abortion includes anything that fails to develop, progress, or mature, as Yahweh intended. 

In the name of Jesus Christ, I command every spirit of abortion attacking your development, progress, and spiritual maturity—growth in Christ, to exit and exodus your life now. I release the judgment of Yahweh against these spirits and drive them out with the finger of Yahweh. 

I burn by the fire of Holy Spirit, the spirit of abortion. I abort every spirit of abortion and sabotage every spirit of sabotage and self-sabotage in your life. I attack every spirit of witchcraft and negativity attacking you and disassemble by fire.  I command and break it off you and your entire bloodline. The blood of deliverance is your portion. Jesus’s blood and finished work on the cross, is your deliverance. Yahweh’s immeasurable, wasteful, grossly extravagant love, is your deliverance. I command it; “Off from your dreams; off and away from your goals, off and way from your giftings in the name above every name Jesus Christ, our Lord and Savior.” The plans of the enemy are detonated in your life and the plans and purposes of Yahweh are being fulfilled in your life. 

You are free, liberated, and full of the faith of Jesus Christ. I loose you to destiny. I loose you to your divine purpose. I loose you to supernatural growth and development. I unlock you and your giftings. I break and burn the demonic cobwebs, the demonic ceilings, demonic barriers and limitations from your life. Now, make time to prosper, make time to fulfill, plan to succeed and you shall not fail. This is not your end but a new beginning.

Release Your Cares To God!

by Hazel Straub

God calls us to rest, releasing, abandoning our cares and control, to him. No stress, only rest. Settled quietly, in the tender care of the Lord. He works on our behalf.

Cast your burden on the Lord [releasing the weight of it] and He will sustain you; He will never allow the [consistently] righteous to be moved (made to slip, fall, or fail).(Psalm 55:22 AMPC)

Covenant Relationship Despite Differences

by Apostle Gabriel Cross

We should cease from fighting amongst ourselves, but take it out on the enemy, and “love” (another word for worship).

Sometimes the very thing or person that frustrates you the most, is the very thing or person God designed to mature you the best.

We need each other because God uses us through covenant relationship to make us better. We should cease from siding with the enemy over your own brothers and sisters in the Lord. We wrestle not against flesh and blood but against the powers of the enemy.

Sometimes you can war so much that you forget who the real enemy is.
The prefix “de” in the devil’s name means to reverse in action. The enemy tries to divert our warfare from him to warring against each other.

However, it is time to do to the enemy what he’s been trying to do to us. “Destroy him” by loving each other the way the Father loves us.

Prodigal Heavenly Father!

by Hazel Straub

Most of you have heard of the prodigal son (Luke 15:11-32) but have you heard of the prodigal father? The dictionary definition of prodigal is wastefully or recklessly extravagant; giving or yielding profusely; very generous; lavishly abundant; profuse.

Our Heavenly Father is love and gives it to us in a wasteful, reckless extravagant, profuse, extremely generous, abundant way. He gives his love to us, not based on our goodness or merit but because he is lavishly, wastefully, spending his love on us. He does not treat us as we deserve but is extremely generous to each one of us. When we have wasted our lives, our Father waits with open arms to welcome us back home. He gives us new clothes of honor, puts a ring on our fingers, shoes for our feet and prepares a feast for us, with the fattened calf. Enjoy the reckless, extravagant, lavish, wasteful love of our prodigal Father for each one of us! Rejoice!

“So the young son set off for home. From a long distance away, his father saw him coming,  dressed as a beggar, and great compassion swelled up in his heart for his son who was returning home. The father raced out to meet him, swept him up in his arms, hugged him dearly, and kissed him over and over with tender love. (Luke 15:20 TPT)

Praise Takes Out The Enemy

by Apostle Gabriel Cross

Your Worship has the powerful potential to crush every wall, to a mere powder, demolish every vain imagination, destroy the effects of every lie and word curse ever spoken over you, retrieve-recover all, and shift the atmosphere around you! Warriors of Judah, let’s get it! You are anointed to take the enemy out with your praise! Take praise and worship in Jehovah’s presence and call me in the morning. Your praise is a powerful weapon!

Need A New Heart?

by Hazel Straub

God wants to change us inside our heart. He is not looking at the superficial but what is in our heart. Our actions show the issues of our heart. He desires our heart, his greatest treasure, (our way of thinking, will, and emotions).

God desires that we cry out to him, to heal our past hurts that have lodged in our heart. When we are honest with Abba Father, about our struggles, he helps us heal. Ask to have him expand your ability to receive his love, love ourselves, and to love others, unconditionally.

We cry, “Change my heart, oh God! Let me love like your Son, Jesus. Make my heart tender.”

I will sprinkle clean water on you, and you shall be clean from all your uncleannesses, and from all your idols I will cleanse you. And I will give you a new heart, and a new spirit I will put within you. And I will remove the heart of stone from your flesh and give you a heart of flesh. And I will put my Spirit within you, and cause you to walk in my statutes and be careful to obey my rules. (Ezekiel 36:25-27 ESV)

Forgiveness Of Others And Oneself, Heals!

by Hazel Straub

Forgiveness means releasing the resentment, bitterness, blame, hostility, hatred, anger and fear that you have towards someone who has transgressed against you or even against yourself. It also means to cancel the need to punish the offender. Releasing the offender from your judgment, allows God to deal with the offender. Forgiving yourself for your mistakes, gets rid of self condemnation and allows you to receive all the blessings God has for you! Forgiveness is an act of the will, not an emotion.

When we do not forgive, however, we rehearse the wrongs and dwell in the poison, we intend for others. Often, when we haven’t forgiven, we engage in negative thoughts and emotions and relive the trauma, without any resolution. Unforgiveness adds high stress to one’s body and mind that opens one up for chronic physical disease or mental torment and mental illness. The cost of unforgiveness is extremely costly to one’s self.

When we accept Jesus as our Savior, our sins are forgiven. In order to receive forgiveness, however, we need to cancel the debt owed us, by others. If we do not release the offender, we stew in our own bitterness and anger that we want the offender to drink. This bitter root grows and effects not only the one living, as a victim but also those in relationship with them.  (“…lest any root of bitterness spring up trouble you, and thereby many be defiled.” Hebrews 12:15)

Jesus told a parable about a king in Matthew 18:23-25 who had a servant who owed him millions of dollars and couldn’t repay the debt. The servant asked for mercy and the king had compassion and cancelled the debt. Then the servant went to a fellow servant and demanded payment for a lessor debt of a few dollars and refused to have mercy and threw him in prison until the debt was paid. When the king learned of this, he threw the unforgiving servant in prison and delivered him to the tormentors. Jesus said we would have the same treatment, if we did not forgive others from our heart. When we forgive, we become victorious with no place for the enemy to steal, destroy and kill us. Our prayers reach God unhindered and we can enjoy living, without the regret and shame of reliving the past and never healing.

God’s Grace And Provision

by Hazel Straub

God never gives us an assignment without giving us the provision to see it to completion. His presence is with us, he is our covering and present help. He is our shelter, refuge and strength and with him at our side, nothing is impossible.

Trust and rely on him not your own understanding or resources. Put feet to your mental assent and move. You will find that nothing is impossible, when you trust and obey God.

Yes, God is more than ready to overwhelm you with every form of grace, so that you will have more than enough of everything —every moment and in every way. He will make you overflow with abundance in every good thing you do. (2 Corinthians 9:8 TPT)

Mercy!

by Apostle Gabriel Cross

12 And I thank Christ Jesus our Lord, who hath enabled me, for that he counted me faithful, putting me into the ministry;
13 Who was before a blasphemer, and a persecutor, and injurious: but I obtained mercy, because I did it ignorantly in unbelief.
14 And the grace of our Lord was exceeding abundant with faith and love which is in Christ Jesus.
(1 Timothy 1:12-14)

Paul, previously named Saul, formerly a Hater, but God had mercy on Him. I was once a Hater, we’ve all been haters and come short of the Glory of God, but he had mercy on us. Extend mercy to your Hater, they might be the next Paul one day.

Refuse to hold people to standards that you know you can’t live yourself. Love your Haters and extend mercy today!

Apostle Hater Lover

Great Change Is Here!

by Hazel Straub

We are in a season of great change. Earthquakes, hurricanes and tornados in unusual places and unusual weather patterns of heat and cold. Many things which were constant in the past are changing. Even in our personal lives there is rapid change and transformation.

God is calling us to leave the past behind and to move into our future. It is time to let go of old destructive ways of thinking and yield ourselves to God so he can transform us. Taking off the old garments and getting rid of everything that keeps us from victorious life. God gives us fresh vision and perspective, as we change our focus from our circumstances to Jesus. A transformation and metamorphosis happens so we become more in the image of Jesus the Messiah.

It is a new season and time to emerge from the comfort of the cocoon and to emerge transformed.

Metamorphosis is a profound change in form from one stage to the next in the life history of an organism, as from the caterpillar to the pupa and from the pupa to the adult butterfly.

Do not be conformed to this world (this age), [fashioned after and adapted to its external, superficial customs], but be transformed (changed) by the [entire] renewal of your mind [by its new ideals and its new attitude], so that you may prove [for yourselves] what is the good and acceptable and perfect will of God, even the thing which is good and acceptable and perfect [in His sight for you].” (Romans 12:2 AMPC)

Key To Breakthrough?

by Hazel Straub

Pure worship of God, gives him what he desires not merely the pittance that we want to give. Obedience to his instructions, is the highest form of adoration and reverence not sacrifices. Give him all the glory and obey.

Full surrender, submission and the total giving of your heart and self to God, results in major breakthrough. The favor of God, comes from obedience.

But Samuel replied, “What is more pleasing to the LORD: your burnt offerings and sacrifices or your obedience to his voice? Listen! Obedience is better than sacrifice, and submission is better than offering the fat of rams. (1 Samuel 15:22 NLT)

Worried About Provision?

by Hazel Straub

Worried about provision because your bank account won’t stretch to pay the bills? Do you think that what you have is insufficient  to meet your needs? No matter what the situation, Yahweh promises to provide for those who trust and obey him.

No matter, if there is a drought and no water for the crops, Yahweh sustains and takes care of you. It did not rain in Israel for 3 1/2 years, due to their failure to worship and depend on Yahweh and instead worshiped idols. Elijah, the prophet of Yahweh, followed his instructions, to go to a foreign town, where a widow would feed him. Elijah met the widow who was gathering wood for cooking her and her son’s last meal. She believed the prophet and provided him with water and bread before feeding her family. Her trust and faith in Yahweh, resulted in her little flour and oil, sustaining her household, until it rained and crops harvested. She obeyed Yahweh, provided for Yahweh’s prophet and Yahweh provided for her and her family. Her handful of flour and small amount of oil never ran out.

Yahweh loves you, and sustains those who have faith, in his provision, through seasons of drought. Believe and trust him, as your provider, not letting fear rule. Vision him, as your provision.

Then Elijah told her, “Don’t be afraid. Go home, and do as you’ve said. But first make a small loaf and bring it to me. Then prepare something for yourself and your son. This is what Yahweh Elohim of Israel says: Until Yahweh sends rain on the land, the jar of flour will never be empty and the jug will always contain oil.” She did what Elijah had told her. So she, Elijah, and her family had food for a long time. The jar of flour never became empty, and the jug always contained olive oil, as Yahweh had promised through Elijah. (1 Kings 17:13-16 NOG)

God Is Trustworthy!

by Hazel Straub

We would have despaired and perished, if God had not saved us, from the consequences of our sin, through his son, Jesus the Messiah. People trust in God, knowing he delivered them from death, by the sacrifice and blood of his one and only son, Jesus, our redeemer. He also gives us, his protection and strength. We know this is true because he has rescued us many times, from danger, many hopeless situations, and provided for our needs in uncertain times.

Praise and trust God, he never fails!

My righteousness is near, my salvation (Jesus) is gone forth, and my arms shall judge the peoples; the islands shall wait for me, and on my arm shall they trust. (Isaiah 51:5)

Matters not what you think you don’t have, but who you have. You have MORE THAN ENOUGH! It is impossible to run out, when you have MORE THAN ENOUGH! No run of the mill or status quo but choice harvest of blessings, from heaven for YOU.

Families, relationships, churches, businesses are being restored and released. The hearts of the Fathers are being restored back to the sons and the sons back to the fathers. Jerusalem is being restored and made new!

I heard in the Spirit this week, exponential, residual, perpetual, increase, and overload. Yahweh is breaking heaven open over you. A new level of love you will walk in and experience unexplainable miracles, notable miracles, and uncanny abundant increase of FAVOR! This is not a cliché, this is not a popularity contest, nor hype. Yahweh is breaking over you, your family, and your ministry with great joy, great wealth, great deliverance and great love. Great Things! Great Things for You! It’s happening, it’s changing, it’s working in your FAVOR!

You’ve been waiting, you’ve been praying, you’ve been decreeing, and you’ve been sowing, but THIS IS IT! That’s what all your warfare has been about, Yahweh is not punishing you, he is PLENISHING YOU! (This word is for all those who wanted to give up but didn’t, the Faithful.)

Bless God

by Hazel Straub

Dear friends, join me in blessing God, today!

I bless GOD every chance I get

my lungs expand with his praise.

I live and breathe GOD;

if things aren’t going well, hear this and be happy:

Join me in spreading the news;

together let’s get the word out.

GOD met me more than halfway,

he freed me than my anxious fears.

Look at him; give him your warmest smile.

Never hide your feelings from him.

When I was desperate, I called out,

and GOD got me out of a tight spot.

God’s angel sets up a circle

of protection around us while we pray. (Psalm 34:1-7 TPT)

What Is The Priceless Gift?

by Apostle Gabriel Cross

The greatest gift of all is LOVE. God gave it to you, gives it to you, and always will. Give it to Him by giving it to someone else.

LOVE is priceless. Everybody needs it but not everyone gives it. The more you release LOVE on others, the more LOVE releases you. Wrap it up and give LOVE today!

Breakthrough With The Lord Jesus!

by Hazel Straub

We are in a season of breakthrough and breakout in our lives. This breakthrough will come for people with determination to have all that God has for them. Their focus is on the Lord Jesus and they will not allow anyone or anything to deter them from their breakthrough. They repeatedly tell themselves that once they reach Jesus they will have all that they need. No matter the hardships, setbacks and failures that they meet, they continue to press for fulfillment of their God-given desires and destiny.

Those who press through adversity are like the woman, who had blood flowing for 12 years. (Mark 5:24-34) She never gave up looking for a cure and spent all of her money on physicians, trying to get better. Instead her physical condition worsened and she had great suffering. She heard about Jesus and still had faith for her healing.

Although a large crowd surrounded Jesus, she determined to touch the fringe on his prayer shawl that represented all the promises of the Word of God. She knew that there was healing in his wings, fringe or hem (Malachi 4:20). It was not  easy to press through the crowd and her past but she had great faith that would not be denied. The law considered the woman, unclean and untouchable, so she lived her life, as an outcast. Past failures, destitution, and her untouchable status didn’t prevent her from acting in desperate faith. She told herself that she would be healed, when she touched his fringe on the hem of his garment. She did and was immediately healed.

Jesus felt power go out of him and asked who had touched him because she touched him with faith. She fell at his feet trembling and admitted that she was the one. Jesus confirmed her healing, saying her faith had healed her. He told her she would no longer suffer and would go in peace, which meant being whole and complete with nothing broken.

The woman did not let the failures of the past 12 years or her current situation, of seeming insurmountable odds, keep her from receiving what belonged to her. We are also challenged to not let anything defeat us, as we press to Jesus to receive the fullness of  our God-given destiny and desires. No matter how much time has passed and how many defeats you have experienced, this is your season of breakthrough. Press through!

God Is Waiting For You!

by Apostle Gabriel Cross

This is why the enemy wants you to quit. You are valuable. Your life has greater purpose than what you’re experiencing now. You are redeemed from your past even if it was just two seconds ago. You are not going to breakdown but you’re going to breakthrough. God shall bring it to pass and fulfill what he promised you. It’s already done!

You’re not waiting on Him, he’s waiting on you, to mature enough, to walk in and through the inheritance God has already ordained for you. God has invested too much in you for you to give up now! (Yeshua, angels of heaven, and I are rooting for you!)

Trust God

by Hazel Straub

How many times have you felt life was passing you by? It has been a long time and all the things God promised you have not materialized. Frustration and anger manifest.

God, however, sees things differently. If you prosper too fast, you lack the maturity and wisdom to handle it. Someone wins the lottery and a year or two later is bankrupt. The emphasis of healthy growth comes with a good foundation and building godly character. When we stay faithful to the little God gives us, he will increase it and always provide. Trust God, his timing in your life is perfect.

“Little by little I will drive them out before you, until you become fruitful and inherit the land.” (Exodus 23:20)

Rejoice In Your Infirmities!

by Apostle Gabriel Cross

Even in your struggles, weaknesses, and mess ups, Yahweh is still there to help you. Be patient with yourself…Selah

And he said unto me, My grace is sufficient for thee: for my strength is made perfect in weakness (feebleness of mind or body, by implication, malady, morally, frailty). Most gladly therefore will I rather glory in my infirmities, (weakness, frailty, want of strength, feebleness of mind or body, handicaps that go with it, someone becomes wrongly overly dependent, an ailment that deprives someone from accomplishing what they want to do) that the power of Christ may rest upon me. (2 Corinthians 12:9 KJV)

Focus On Yahweh

Photo by Eduardo Braga on Pexels.com

by Hazel Straub

God calls us to live in faith with full trust. We are not to fear and recite all the troubles with our circumstances. Instead of focusing on the impossibilities of your situation, thinking and complaining about all the difficulties, keep your focus on Yahweh, the covenant keeping God of your present, and his loving supernatural provision for you. Your problem can become the very thing used by God, to show himself strong, on your behalf.

Faith in God, rehearse his promises, and cry out to him in trusting belief, causes him to hear and answer. With his help, you are victorious. Expect your miracle today! Remember, Jesus gave his life for you and what seemed like terrible defeat, brought you salvation, deliverance and abundant life.

Faith comes by hearing, and hearing by the word of God. (Romans 10:17)

Your Faith Is The Victory!

by Apostle Gabriel Cross

Just because you don’t see it, doesn’t mean you shouldn’t believe it. And just because you see something else, doesn’t mean you have to believe this for yourself. We walk by Faith not by the things the enemy uses to fashion, shape, or influence your sight!

Your Faith is the Victory!

God Loves You, Fear Not!

by Hazel Straub

Can you look around you and see a small bird? This is your reminder that God cares for the smallest bird and takes care of it. How much more will he meet your needs and care for you? Thank God for his great loving care of you, today! You have no fear because Father God cares for you.

You can buy two sparrows for only a copper coin, yet not even one sparrow falls from its nest without the knowledge of your Father. Aren’t you worth much more to God than many sparrows? So do not worry. For your Father cares deeply, about even the smallest detail of your life. (Matthew 10:29-31 TPT)

The Goodness Of God!

by Hazel Straub

God is very good to those who fear or respect, reverence and hold him in awe, as the greatest authority. His boundless unfailing love is not measurable.

How great is the goodness you have stored up for those who fear you.
You lavish it on those who come to you for protection, blessing them before the watching world. You hide them in the shelter of your presence, safe from those who conspire against them. You shelter them in your presence, far from accusing tongues.
Praise the Lord, for he has shown me the wonders of his unfailing love. He kept me safe when my city was under attack. In panic I cried out, “I am cut off from the Lord!” But you heard my cry for mercy and answered my call for help.
Love the Lord, all you godly ones! For the Lord protects those who are loyal to him, but he harshly punishes the arrogant. So be strong and courageous, all you who put your hope in the Lord! (Psalm 31:19-24 NLT)

True Worshiper

by Apostle Gabriel Cross

If you are always joyless because of how people hate you, then you might not know who you are. If you’re joyful, despite how people hate you and love them unfeigned, then you know who you are; a “True Worshiper.”

Joy, predicated on the One internal, not the ones external… (John 15:18-19)

Rescued From Despair

by Hazel Straub

God reaches out to us, in our imprisonment of a mess of sin, fear and doom. His son, Yeshua, our Shepherd, rescues us from the deep dark pit and places us in his kingdom of love. He takes our sins and removes them. He restores us, giving us hope and joy, where we had despair, depression, and defeat. Praise his name!

God rescued us from dead-end alleys and dark dungeons. He’s set us up in the kingdom of the Son, he loves so much. The Son who got us out of the pit we were in, got rid of the sins we were doomed to keep repeating.(Ephesians 1:13-14 MSG)

The Healing Hand Of The Lord

by Apostle Gabriel Cross

God is going deep to heal each one of us. God is dealing with the deep things in your spirit, the hidden things in your belly.

In order to bring out His best in us, through the worse of us, that the excellency of the power be of Him, and not of us. The things we don’t talk about. The things we don’t want to talk about, the things that speak to us when no one else is listening, the things that deal with the core of our very essence…The things we say we are healed from but we still need healing from.

Do not rush or try to dictate the healing hand of the Lord, simply rest, recline, and receive the wholeness from his arms, his heart.

The things that hinder our being, thwart, and retard our growth are being brought forth. Think it not strange the unidentified feelings and emotions that surface and resurface in this season.

Softly and tenderly, the Lion of love, purrs over you with great detail and deep comfort. He loves away your pain, your fear, and lack. Yes, even the things we wrestle with within ourselves. The things we can’t always express, but can always feel. God is going deeply, to heal you…to deepen the cry of our hearts for HIM…Selah

Extend Mercy

by Apostle Gabriel Cross

And I thank Christ Jesus our Lord, who hath enabled me, for that he counted me faithful, putting me into the ministry; Who was before a blasphemer, and a persecutor, and injurious: but I obtained mercy, because I did it ignorantly in unbelief. And the grace of our Lord was exceeding abundant with faith and love which is in Christ Jesus. (1 Timothy 1:12-14 KJV)

Paul, previously named Saul, formerly a Hater, but God had mercy on Him. I was once a Hater, we’ve all been Haters and come short of the Glory of God, but he had mercy on us. Extend mercy to your Hater, they might be the next Paul one day.

Refuse to hold people, to standards that you know you can’t live yourself. Love your Haters and extend mercy today!

Apostle Hater Lover

Love Others From The Heart

by Hazel Straub

God calls us to love others from the heart. Challenges come and expose our hard self-righteous hearts, with the lack of love, when we disagree and disapprove of others, who fail to meet our standards.

God desires his tender compassion and pure love to dwell in our hearts, reflecting his forgiveness and merciful agape love, for us. Although, factually right about an issue, our prideful attitude may be argumentative, hateful, condemning and nasty, when we fight to prove our point of view. No love for others is seen.

The love of God, however, covers sins and transgressions like a quilt. His son, Jesus, died for his enemies, to save them. Since the Spirit of Jesus resides in believers, this love extends out of us, to our governing authorities, fellow Christians, co-workers, neighbors, relatives, and even our enemies. We need mercy and forgiveness, so extend it to others.

Lord, purify my heart and fill it with your love, so I can love like you!

Hate stirs up disputes, but love covers all kinds of transgressions. (Proverbs 10:12 CJB)

Change Your Focus

by Apostle Gabriel Cross

We have to keep our focus on Christ’s message and not the mess of the enemy. Change your FOCUS. When we are focusing on the wrong things, the enemy drains or wastes a lot of our energy. The enemy tries to make us exhausted, with feelings of “no avail.” Simply, change your focus. We have a tendency to become consumed with what we focus our hearts and minds on.

Focus on the better, the good, and your success because you are success! Negative voices, pessimistic people, and misanthropic persons, Shut them off and do you, and what Yahweh requires of you, (part of changing your focus).

Let Yahweh handle them, that is his job, he is more than capable. Only deal with what you’re supposed to, change your confession; make sure your speaking is aligned with what the Father is saying over your life. Truth is, he is fighting your battle. Keep allowing him to teach you and reveal to you what you’re supposed to learn from this, benefiting you for the rest of your life.

I take authority over and exercise dominion over all vain imaginations, harassing thoughts, and every word curse that they bear no more fruit in your life. I remove the false pressure that if you don’t do something, it won’t be right or taken care of. I loose you to working smart not over working hard. IT IS Time to give it all away to Yahweh!

The Love Of Jesus Changes Everything

by Hazel Straub

Jesus loves you! Believe it and see your life completely transformed, by his love. Breakthrough and amazing things happen, as you rest and rely on this truth.

Do you think anyone is going to be able to drive a wedge between us and Christ’s love for us? There is no way! Not trouble, not hard times, not hatred, not hunger, not homelessness, not bullying threats, not backstabbing, not even the worst sins listed in Scripture: They kill us in cold blood because they hate you. We’re sitting ducks; they pick us off one by one.None of this fazes us because Jesus loves us. I’m absolutely convinced that nothing—nothing living or dead, angelic or demonic, today or tomorrow, high or low, thinkable or unthinkable—absolutely nothing can get between us and God’s love because of the way that Jesus our Master has embraced us. (Romans 8:35-39 MSG)

Knowledge Or Relationship With God?

by Apostle Gabriel Cross

Don’t get caught up in the “knowledge of Him,” be caught up in “knowing Him.” Knowledge alone doesn’t excite true worshipers, we desire to know Him more…
