New Treasures In Your Present!

by Hazel Straub

This is the day, to no longer let the past define you. Walk away and close the door to the place where you used to exist. The horizon contains much more than you can imagine.

Keep your focus on Jesus, who desires to show you many new treasures. Live the abundant life, following the Lord, on the adventure he has for you. Get his vision for the things he wants to open up to you. No more hesitation! Go!

Jesus called out to them, “Come, follow me, and I will show you how to fish for people!”  And they left their nets at once and followed him. (Matthew 4:19-20 NLT)

Arise And Shine!

by Apostle Gabriel Cross

The glory of The Lord has risen upon you, so arise and shine for your Light has come. This is Our hour to shine, to radiate his glory, all over the world. The Lion of Light, pierces the darkness with light, encourages us by lifting us up, and encompassing us with songs of deliverance in the night. ARISE [from the depression and prostration in which circumstances have kept you–rise to a new life]! Shine (be radiant with the glory of the Lord), for your light has come, and the glory of the Lord has risen upon you! [Zechariah 8:23] (The Light or his presence comes to deliver us and bring justice to the land.)

This is our time to shine forth as beacons of light with his glory for, YOU ARE THE LIGHT OF THE WORLD! For behold, darkness shall cover the earth, and dense darkness [all] peoples, but the Lord shall arise upon you [O Jerusalem], and His glory shall be seen on you. [Isaiah 60:19-22; Malachi 4:2; Revelation 21:2, 3] And nations shall come to your light, and kings to the brightness of your rising. [Isaiah 2:2, 3; Jeremiah 3:17]

(Lift up your eyes round about you and see! Look up! Look up! Look with expectancy, see with clarity, and new understanding). They all gather themselves together, they come to you. Your sons shall come from afar, and your daughters shall be carried and nursed in the arms. Then you shall see and be radiant, and your heart shall thrill and tremble with joy, [at the glorious deliverance] and BE ENLARGED; because the abundant wealth of the [Dead] Sea shall be turned to you, unto you shall the nations come with their treasures. [Psalm 119:32] A multitude of camels (heaven’s abundance, the riches of his glory is being released to you! Change of commerce, wealth of blessing and great health of blessing) [from the eastern trading tribes] shall cover you, the young camels of Midian and Ephah; all the men from Sheba [who once came to trade] shall come, bringing gold and frankincense and proclaiming the praises of the Lord. [Matthew 2:11]

All the flocks of Kedar shall be gathered to you [as the eastern pastoral tribes join the trading tribes], the rams of Nebaioth shall minister to you; they shall come up with acceptance on My altar, and My glorious house I will glorify. Who are these who fly like a cloud, and like doves to their windows? Surely the isles and distant coastlands shall wait for and expect Me; and the ships of Tarshish [shall come] first, to bring your sons from afar, their silver and gold with them, for the name of the Lord your God, for the Holy One of Israel, because He has beautified and glorified you. Foreigners shall build up your walls, and their kings shall minister to you; for in My wrath I smote you, but in My favor, pleasure, and goodwill I have had mercy, love, and pity for you. And your gates shall be open continually, they shall not be shut day or night, that men may bring to you the wealth of the nations–and their kings led in procession [your voluntary captives]. [Revelation 21:24-27]

For the nation and kingdom that will not serve you in that day [Jerusalem] shall perish; yes, those nations shall be utterly laid waste. The glory of Lebanon shall come to you, the cypress, the plane, and the pine [trees] together, to beautify the place of My sanctuary; and I will make the place of My feet glorious. (Hallelujah, his feet, represent and bring in his reign, his rule, his steadfast power, his excellency, his compassion on us, his fire and judgment against our enemies.) The sons of those who afflicted you shall come bending low to you, and all those who despised you shall bow down at your feet, and they shall call you the City of the Lord, the Zion of the Holy One of Israel. [Revelation 3:9]

Whereas you have been forsaken and hated, so that no man passed through you, I will make you [Jerusalem] an eternal glory, a joy from age to age. You shall suck the milk of the [Gentile] nations and shall suck the breast of kings; and you shall recognize and know that I, the Lord, am your Savior and your Redeemer, the Mighty One of Jacob. (We are nursing at the breast of kings, meaning, we the spiritual Jerusalem, siphoning wealth from other nations represented by their kings.)

Instead of bronze I will bring gold, and instead of iron I will bring silver; and instead of wood, bronze, and instead of stones, iron. [Instead of the tyranny of the present] I will appoint peace as your officers and righteousness as your taskmasters. Violence shall no more be heard in your land, nor devastation or destruction within your borders, but you shall call your walls Salvation and your gates Praise. (Living in walls of deliverance and walking through doors of praise.)

The sun shall no more be your light by day, nor for brightness shall the moon give light to you, but the Lord shall be to you an everlasting light, and your God your glory and your beauty. [Jeremiah 9:23, 24; Revelation 21:23] Your sun shall no more go down, nor shall your moon withdraw itself, for the Lord shall be your everlasting light, and the days of your mourning shall be ended.

Your people also shall all be [uncompromisingly and consistently] righteous; they shall possess the land forever, the branch of My planting, the work of My hands, that I may be glorified. The least one shall become a thousand [a clan], and the small one a strong nation. I, the Lord, will hasten it in its [appointed] time. (Isaiah 60:1-22)

Commit To And Trust Yahweh!

by Hazel Straub

Commit yourself to Yahweh and delight yourself in him, trusting him with all of your heart, the way you think, your will, and your emotions. This commitment will change your life, in the best ways! Don’t worry about the wicked or be envious of them. As you place your trust in Yahweh, everything will work out for the best.

Give God the right to direct your life,
    and as you trust him along the way,
    you’ll find he pulled it off perfectly!
He will appear as your righteousness,
    as sure as the dawning of a new day.
    He will manifest as your justice,
    as sure and strong as the noonday sun.
Quiet your heart in his presence
    and wait patiently for Yahweh.
    And don’t think for a moment that the wicked, in their prosperity,
    are better off than you.
Stay away from anger and revenge.
    Keep envy far from you, for it only leads you into lies.
For one day the wicked will be destroyed,
    but those who trust in the Lord
    will inherit the land.
(Psalm 37:5-9 TPT)

Embrace New Changes

by Hazel Straub

The season in which we find ourselves is one of change. No longer business as usual, treading well-worn paths and living in the status quo. Instead we experience new challenges in new unfamiliar settings with new relationships. Life, as we knew it, is gone. We are going over to the other side of the mountain to live, in an unfamiliar setting, where God is in control not us.

God tells us to let the past go and not to hang on to old victories, ways of thinking, grudges, and habits. He is doing something new and it requires letting go of toxic thought patterns, unforgiveness, regrets and living the familiar comfortable way. No longer coping as a survivor, but thriving in abundant life. When you let it all go, there is room for new relationships, new life in unfamiliar places and blessings you could not imagine. It is time for new beginnings, seeing new rivers flowing in the former desert and exploring new paths you would not have considered earlier.

Embrace the new and leave the past in the past!

“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)

The Word Of God

by Hazel Straub

Fall in love with the Word of God and know the Truth and the Truth will set you free. Jesus, is the Word, who created the world came to earth in the flesh. He is the living Word, who spoke and the world was created. The promises in the Word of God are true. Take Him at His Word. Receive them, believe them and speak the Word over yourself, in faith! The Word has power when applied!

 In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God.  The same was in the beginning with God. All things were made by him; and without him was not any thing made that was made.  In him was life; and the life was the light of men.  And the light shineth in darkness; and the darkness comprehended it not. (John 1:1-5 AKJV)

He was in the world, and the world was made by him, and the world knew him not.  He came unto his own, and his own received him not.  But as many as received him, to them gave he power to become the sons of God, even to them that believe on his name: which were born, not of blood, nor of the will of the flesh, nor of the will of man, but of God.  And the Word was made flesh, and dwelt among us, (and we beheld his glory, the glory as of the only begotten of the Father,) full of grace and truth. (John 1:10-14 AKJV)

Offended?

by Hazel Straub

Offended by others? It is easy to take offense, if one does not watch their heart. Offense when brooded over, like a laying hen, will hatch bitterness. Offended people build fences that they will not go across for reconciliation with whom they are angry. Anger, when fed by pride and selfishness, festers from our own wrong motives, into bitterness because our thoughts revolve around our hurts and our rights. Instead search your heart before you go to sleep so your will not allow the devil to gain a foothold in your soul (your mind, will, and emotions). Bitter roots give the enemy of our soul the right to occupy and implant his lies attached to our sinful holding onto offenses. Bless others, pray for them, and remember how much Yahweh through Jesus has forgiven you, so it is easy to let go of the offense.

Embrace the power of salvation’s full deliverance, like a helmet to protect your thoughts from lies. And take the mighty razor-sharp Spirit-sword of the spoken word of God. Pray passionately in the Spirit, as you constantly intercede with every form of prayer at all times. Pray the blessings of God upon all his believers. (Ephesians 6:17 TPT)

May we never forget that Yahweh works wonders
for every one of his devoted lovers.
And this is how I know that he will answer my every prayer.
Tremble in awe before the Lord, and do not sin against him.
Be still upon your bed and search your heart before him.
(Psalms 4:3-4 TPT)

With tender humility and quiet patience, always demonstrate gentleness and generous love toward one another, especially toward those who may try your patience. (Ephesians 4:2 TPT)

But don’t let the passion of your emotions lead you to sin! Don’t let anger control you or be fuel for revenge, not for even a day. (Ephesians 4:26 TPT)

Lay aside bitter words, temper tantrums, revenge, profanity, and insults. (Ephesians 4:31 TPT)

An understanding person demonstrates patience,
for mercy means holding your tongue.
When you are insulted,
be quick to forgive and forget it,
for you are virtuous when you overlook an offense. (Proverbs 19:11 TPT)

Psalm 23 Explained

by Apostle Gabriel Cross

Come and get your life! The One God ordained for you to have!

Prepare –
a primitive root; to set in a row, i.e. arrange, put in order (in a very wide variety of applications):–put (set) (the battle, self) in array, compare, direct, equal, esteem, estimate, expert (in war), furnish, handle, join (battle), ordain, (lay, put, reckon up, set) (in) order, prepare, tax, value.

Enemies –
to cramp, (as follows):–adversary, (be in) afflict(-ion), besiege, bind (up), (be in, bring) distress, enemy, narrower, oppress, pangs, shut up, be in a strait (trouble), vex.

WE ARE NO LONGER SETTLING!
No more living a fear based life
It’s time to walk in your governmental authority!
Bountifully blessed
Tremendously blessed
Outrageously blessed
Contagiously blessed
Ecstatically blessed
Radically blessed
Deliriously blessed
Inevitably blessed and favored by the King

The psalmist tells us that God sets a table before you in the presence of your enemies. Usually, the richness of the table set before you, when you are a guest depends on how rich your host is. So you can imagine the kind of table God sets before those who are his own children.

Let’s examine this statement. Normally, you wouldn’t set a table, in the presence of enemies. (Indeed some would hardly like to set their table in front of their friends, not to talk of enemies). Obviously your enemies would love to deprive you of your feast and steal it from you, but God demonstrates his absolute power in that he is able to set a table for you in the midst of your enemies and they can do nothing except gaze enviously.

It is necessary to understand the relative positions and Authority of God, Man and Satan in the world to be able to operate in dominion.

The degree to which you understand God is the degree to which you can partake of the table. No devil is big enough to take away God’s blessing from you – if you have understanding.

The Preparation
I have and I am continually going before you to prepare the way, just like a good shepherd in the natural goes before the sheep to scout out green pastures, clean water, and eradicate enemies. Beloved, it is my desire to lead you to large places and high plains among the mountains of relationship with Me, (Psalms 118:5 Psalms 18:19). I have furnished all you will ever need. I have set everything in order.

I do not send you ahead of Me and I never will. I loved first, gave first, suffered first, sacrificed first, died first, rose first and ascended first in order to prepare your way. The Father sent Me and I willingly came to scout out and to make a way to bring you to the high plains of relationship once again.

Anoint my head with oil – a primitive root; to be fat; transitively, to fatten (or regard as fat); specifically to anoint; figuratively, to satisfy; (from 1880) to remove (fat) ashes (of sacrifices):–accept, anoint, take away the (receive) ashes (from), make (wax) fat. from 1878; the fat; abstractly fatness, abundance; specifically the (fatty) ashes of sacrifices:– ashes, fatness.

CUP – meaning to hold together; a cup (as a container), a lot (as if a potion):–cup, Compare 3599. a form for 3563; a cup; also a bag for money or weights:–bag, cup, purse.
RUN OVER –from 7301; satisfaction:–runneth over, wealthy.
to slake the thirst (occasionally of other appetites):–bathe, make drunk, (take the) fill, satiate, (abundantly) satisfy, soak, water (abundantly). I HAVE MORE THAN ENOUGH FOR MY NEEDS

[Not in your own strength] for it is God Who is all the while effectually at work in you [energizing and creating in you the power and desire], both to will and to work for His good pleasure and satisfaction and delight. (Philippians 2:13 AMP)

The Incredible Love Of God!

by Hazel Straub

God never leaves or abandons us but is always with us. He not only saves us but also takes great joy and delight in us. His love for us is incredible, without reservation. We do nothing to earn his lavish love. We are his children and he rejoices over us. He takes such delight in us that he sings over us. He is awesome beyond description!

Yahweh your God is in your midst, a mighty one who will save; he will rejoice over you with gladness; he will quiet you by his love; he will exult over you with loud singing. (Zephaniah 3:17 ESV)

Motivations Of The Heart

by Apostle Gabriel Cross

Wow! Hearts, Motives, True Colors or Intentions are being exposed, in this season. Be not entangled or snared by the cares of this world. (Mark 4:19; Luke 21:34).

Holy Ghost News Flash! When you care more about your building, more than building your people, when you care more about your needs, than the needs of your people. When you try to correct God concerning what he is saying, over your people, you have missed the heart of the King of kings. You’re in religious control, and spiritual witchcraft, from the pulpit!

The Grace Of God

by Hazel Straub

As you live your life today, do not forget the gift of grace. God extends his kindness and love to us and through Jesus, we are accepted, and beloved. This grace has no conditions, cannot be earned and has incredible favor from God. If you live in the grace of God, you day will go well. You do not earn grace, it is a free gift. Take grace with you today and extend it to yourself and others!

For the grace of God has been revealed, bringing salvation to all people. And we are instructed to turn from godless living and sinful pleasures. We should live in this evil world with wisdom, righteousness, and devotion to God, while we look forward with hope to that wonderful day when the glory of our great God and Savior, Jesus Christ, will be revealed. He gave his life to free us from every kind of sin, to cleanse us, and to make us his very own people, totally committed to doing good deeds. (Titus 2:11-14 NLT)

Forgiveness Opens The Door To Freedom!

by Apostle Gabriel Cross

Whether wrong or right, past or present, forgive. When you hold others in your judgment, God will hold you in yours. When you do not extend mercy to others, mercy won’t be extended to you. God says if you do not forgive others he won’t forgive you. Forgiveness closes the door, to many spirits and opens the door, to freedom and healing. Forgive others and forgive yourself, it’s a part of your worship to God.

Get God’s Perspective And Laugh!

by Hazel Straub

Does it feel like your circumstances are bigger than anything else? Good news! God is greater than the circumstances that we find difficult. Choose to step into a place of training for reigning, where you take lessons and tests. In the boot camp of God, his grace sustains you through the growth process. You learn to overcome the obstacles and to be more than a conquerer. Faith grows and you develop patience and endurance.

Lord, help me have fun and a sense of humor, throughout this process! Give me your perspective and new eyes to see. Thank you, that nothing is impossible, when I trust you and laugh! Amen

For you know that when your faith is tested, your endurance has a chance to grow. (James 1:3 NLT)

A joyful, cheerful heart brings healing to both body and soul.
    But the one whose heart is crushed
    struggles with sickness and depression.

Embrace Yourself In Christ

by Gabriel Cross

The more you embrace who you are in Me, The more you will see, perceive, and understand who you are in Me. Gravity cannot hold you down. History cannot hold you back. People, trauma, the past, and the enemy cannot stop you. They cannot stop you, because I started You.  Only you can stop you.  I started you, made you and ordained you that you would show forth the praises, the beauty, and the Glory of Me, in the earth.

Embrace who You are. Embrace yourself, completely.  Stop apologizing, destructively criticizing, disguising, and over analyzing, who you are.  Start embracing, celebrating you, discovering, and loving who you are, the way I, Father, loves you.

Embrace your Kingdom identity, your new Destiny in Me, your Divinity, and Christ in you, the Hope of Glory Embrace who you are wholeheartedly, because I embrace whom I created you to be, wholeheartedly.

Your embracing breaks the opinions, lies, and strongholds (wrong mindsets), of the past. Your embracing looses you to be, whom I ordained and anointed you.  Learn to love, learn to like, learn to accept, what God loves, likes, and accepts concerning yourself.

Let the Glory do the changes.  Let the glory do the changes. Let the glory do the changes and My grace will empower you to make amends and live your best life NOWWW!  The past serves only as a learning tool, a reminder of My goodness, and a springboard for the success, of My Grace upon your life.

You are breaking out of the lies, deceptions, and misconceptions of the enemy, concerning yourself. Heaven’s Truth, Supernatural Revelation, and Freedom in Christ, are breaking over you. You’re going to walk in His Truth, Revelation, and Christ’s Freedom, concerning yourself.

What Do You Feed Your Mind?

by Hazel Straub

Faith and fear originates from your mind and thought life.  When you meditate, on what has gone wrong, can go wrong, or might go wrong, there is no peace and or rest. Many find it easier to concentrate, on the negative becoming bitter, developing anxiety, fear, and depression. They have underdeveloped faith, trust and belief in God, due to what they mull over, in their minds. What they think about, comes out of their mouths and how they live.

Think, meditate and speak the Word of God and faith, in God, will get stronger. Agree with the Word of God and speak it over yourself. What we feed our minds, births our actions. If we know a chair will hold us, we sit on it. If we trust God, we will live by faith, no matter what circumstances, we may face. What you feed, will remain.

Don’t be afraid, because I am with you.
Don’t be intimidated; I am your Elohim.
I will strengthen you.
I will help you.
I will support you with my victorious right hand. (Isaiah 41:10 NOG)

Yahweh Is Not A Man!

by Hazel Straub

Do you limit God by thinking he is like mankind? Change your perspective and know that he has no limits and is much bigger and more capable than you can think or imagine. He is not limited by time or space and is perfect. What he promises, he accomplishes. He has told us that he is our refuge and strength and we can confidently trust him.

Know he is not a man but Yahweh, our covenant keeping God! He is worthy of all our worship, honor, and trust. Our victory comes from Yahweh, the maker of the heavens, earth, all creation, including all of us!

“God is not a man, that He should lie, Nor a son of man, that He should repent. Has He said, and will He not do it? Or has He spoken and will He not make it good and fulfill it? (Numbers 23:19 AMP)

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!
 Our enemies will not prevail; they will only collapse and
    perish in defeat while we will rise up, full of courage.
(Psalm 20:7-8 TPT)

Light Up The Darkness!

by Hazel Straub

In Alaska, winter is here with snow, frigid temperatures, and darkness. However, the darkness allows the Northern Lights (aurora borealis) to be seen and enjoyed. Although they are present in the summer, they cannot be detected by the eyes, due to all the daylight. Now in the dark months they shine, dance across the sky like a moving curtain, filled with color and light. They demonstrate that only in darkness can they be seen and then transform the atmosphere, with an intriguing light.

So too, we as believers in Jesus, are lights in the darkness. The contrast of light in darkness changes the atmosphere. People are attracted to light. If there is a fire, everyone will come to get warm. When the light shines from each believer, others come to the light, love, and life that shines. This light attracts those who are cold, lost in the darkness and without hope. Instead of cursing the darkness, let your light shine, and transform the darkness! Shine!

“Your lives light up the world. For how can you hide a city that stands on a hilltop? And who would light a lamp and then hide it in an obscure place? Instead, it’s placed where everyone in the house can benefit from its light. So don’t hide your light! Let it shine brightly before others, so that your commendable works will shine as light upon them, and then they will give their praise to your Father in heaven.” (Matthew 5:14-16 TPT)

The Value Of God’s Approval

by Apostle Gabriel Cross

Never underestimate the power, the authority, and the value of God’s Approval on your life. His Approval outweighs every disapproval you’ve ever experienced in your life. . .Selah

Yahweh Heals Our Wounds

by Hazel Straub

Yahweh our covenant keeping God is good to us and faithful. He is our physician, who forgives our sins, and heals all our diseases. He also heals our traumas and emotional wounds. Because of him, we lack nothing. We praise his name!

Praise Yahweh, my soul,

He is the one who forgives all your sins,

How To Change Your Thinking!

by Hazel Straub

Truth! Your thoughts determine your actions. Each day you choose what you think about. Consequently, your mind needs restoration and a new way of thinking. Meditation on the truth found in God’s Word, will transform your thought life from popular cultural mindsets, or fearful negativity, to God’s way.

Life will flow from you, with a new way of thinking. Then you will have greater clarity in hearing God’s voice and pleasing him. Also, toxic emotions will get replaced with healthy thinking. The light and love that comes from thinking, on the Word of God, will change your life for the best! Your eyes will be opened to God’s Truth.

Do not allow this world to mold you in its own image. Instead, be transformed from the inside out by renewing your mind. As a result, you will be able to discern what God wills and whatever God finds good, pleasing, and complete. (Romans 12:2 VOICE)

Humble Before God?

by Hazel Straub

God shows us love, grace, mercy, and favor, in great measure. He does not treat us as we deserve. But God asks us to humble ourselves and get low, to have a low view of ourselves. He gives grace to the humble. But the proud, God resists. Honor God with your life!

In the same way, the younger ones should willingly support the leadership of the elders. In every relationship, each of you must wrap around yourself the apron of a humble servant. Because: God resists you when you are proud but multiplies grace and favor when you are humble.

If you bow low in God’s awesome presence, he will eventually exalt you as you leave the timing in his hands. (1 Peter 5:5-6 TPT)

The Lord Is Blessing You!

by Apostle Gabriel Cross

When God says something, it’s really not a suggestion, he said:

“NOW (in Haran) the Lord said to Abram, Go for yourself (for your own advantage) away from your country, from your relatives and your father’s house, to the land that I will show (AS YOU MOVE GOD WILL UNVEIL AND REVEAL THINGS to you.) (Hebrews 11:8-10) (YOUR FAITH AND OBEDIENCE ATTRACTS THE FAVOR AND ACTIVATES THE BLESSING OF GOD!)

And I will make of you a great nation, and I will bless you (with abundant increase of favors] and make your name famous and distinguished, and you will be a blessing (dispensing good to others.) (Genesis 12:2) (YOU ARE GREAT! YOU ARE GREATER THAN YOU EVER WERE AND THE GREATEST YOU’VE EVER BEEN! YOU ARE FAVORED TO EXTEND THE SCEPTER OF FAVOR TO OTHERS.)

And I will bless those who bless you (who confer prosperity or happiness upon you) and curse him who curses or uses insolent language toward you; in you will all the families and kindred of the earth be blessed (and by you they will bless themselves.) Galatians 3:8) (Genesis 12:1-3)

YOU ARE GOD’S GLORY DISTRIBUTION CENTER, BLESSED TO BE A BLESSING DISPENSER, BLESSED BEYOND THE CURSE TO BE A CURSE BREAKER! The Lord is blessing you, RIGHT NOW!

Let Your Light Shine!

by Hazel Straub

Where there is light, the darkness cannot overcome it. Light always conquers the dark. Light originates with Daddy God and as we shine with his light, he gets the glory. No matter how dark the world, darkness cannot conquer the light.  When your foundation is God, through Jesus the Messiah, you radiate the Glory Light. Remember light heals and changes one’s perspective.

No matter the evil, it flees from the light. You are the light of the world. Do not curse the darkness but shine, dispelling the darkness!

Your lives light up the world. For how can you hide a city that stands on a hilltop? And who would light a lamp and then hide it in an obscure place? Instead, it’s placed where everyone in the house can benefit from its light.  So don’t hide your light. Let it shine brightly before others, so that your commendable works  will shine as light upon them, and then they will give their praise to your Father in heaven.” (Matthew 5:14-16 TPT)

Don’t Be Afraid!

by Hazel Straub

Social media news, sends out fear, in an attempt to quench faith in God. A favorite ploy of the enemy of our soul is to destroy our faith. However, when we know and trust God and his everlasting love for us, our perspective changes. Even if the odds look insurmountable, we will not experience defeat, as we trust and praise God, for his faithfulness. He will never fail us! Keep your focus and praise on the Lord.

Ancient Judah had the Assyrian huge army come against them and feared defeat. Instead their king encouraged them to believe God and not the power of the flesh. Anything is possible, when we believe God and trust him to fight our battles. They believed God and saw supernatural victory.

Fear not! God is with us. He loves and cares for us. He fights and wins our battles, as we rest and trust in him. He purchased our freedom, from fear of the enemy! Thank you Jesus, for winning our battles!

“Be strong and brave! Don’t be afraid and don’t panic because of the king of Assyria and this huge army that is with him! We have with us one who is stronger than those who are with him. He has with him mere human strength, but the Lord our God is with us to help us and fight our battles!” The army was encouraged by the words of King Hezekiah of Judah. (2 Chronicles 32:7-8 NET)

Unlimited And A Winner!

by Apostle Gabriel Cross

I want you to change your mind about some things, and see it from my point of view. See yourself, as the winner in the ring with the enemy. It’s a fixed fight, and you’ve already won. The devil is the loser and YOU ARE THE CHAMPION!

Exchange your desires for my desires for You. I want to embrace you like you’ve never been hugged before, hugging all your fear away. I want to kiss you and make you not bitter, but better. I desire to lavish the favor, the power, and the deliverance of my love all over you. Rubbing your past away with the Glory of my love.

I unlock your heart where it has been locked by the lies, wounds, and trauma of the past. Now, your heart is unlocked to the truth, the deep healing, and freedom of my Love. Wrap your heart around My overhaul of supernatural provision, for your vision.

Stop limiting me. Stop it now. For I am, Jehovah El Shaddai, the God of more than enough, unlimited, bountiful supply, and all-sufficient One. Come out of the shallow places and start walking in your overflowing God! Walk in the grace and power of the Unlimited. For you are, UNLIMITED.

I want to do more for you than what you can ask! I want to bless you more than you desire to be blessed. For I am the God, “Jehovah Sabaoth,” who stopped time for one man, Joshua 10:13. For I didn’t create you to serve time, but for time to serve you. I am redeeming your time (days that have been difficult and evil), liberating your time (freeing you from the false responsibility false expectations and demands), and holding time, simply, for you, because I desire more fruit from you.

Stop focusing on who doesn’t like you, and start focusing on the One who is in love with you, and those who are in true covenant with you. You are a winner, because you’ve already won. You are unstoppable, because you’re more than a conqueror through Christ Jesus!

You are not a failure, nor will you fail, because you are born of incorruptible seed and you will fulfill the dreams I’ve placed in you. I am with you. I am on your side. I am ahead of you preparing the way!

Don’t worry, don’t you fret, there is so much more abundance, you haven’t seen yet. My love, my love, my love, I love you with a stubborn love, life changing love, a truth bearing love, love that won’t quit but will see to it, that you grow through it, and the fill the face of the whole earth with fruit. You are my heart, says the Spirit of the living God!

What Really Matters!

by Apostle Gabriel Cross

Rather than take all of me
Father, Here’s All of me…(voluntarily)
Rather than giving an offering,
Make me your offering. (completely)
A living sanctuary. For your glory.

Believe And Receive

by Hazel Straub

Fear not for I am with you, says the Lord. Do not fear or tremble at the giants that taunt you. Know that I am with you and I will never leave or forsake you. I have overcome, the enemy defeated, and my victory is your victory. Speak to the mountain and tell it to be thrown into the sea. Believe, trust in me, with no doubt and see your enemy vanquished.

Listen to the truth I speak to you: Whoever says to this mountain with great faith and does not doubt, ‘Mountain, be lifted up and thrown into the midst of the sea,’ and believes that what he says will happen, it will be done. This is the reason I urge you to boldly believe for whatever you ask for in prayer—be convinced that you have received it and it will be yours.  And whenever you stand praying, if you find that you carry something in your heart against another person, release him and forgive him so that your Father in heaven will also release you and forgive you of your faults. (Mark 11:23-25 TPT)

More Than Enough!

by Apostle Gabriel Cross

What you’ve only been able to see from afar, is now in view, in front of you, right beside you, and near you. For heaven is overcoming you, with abundance and fulfillment. The Fulness of time, there is no more veil between you and fulfillment, you and your dreams, the partition removed. Look again! Look out the windows of heaven where you are seated and reigning with the King, reigning and ruling over the things that have ruled over you. Look again and see the glass overflowing, with great things from heaven.

Your small window of opportunity has just been enlarged. Your sins are forgiven. Your weakness is no longer a hindrance or shame, but a motivation to the new and GLORY OF WHAT IS NOW! Your failures have become springboards, to your success. You are succeeding and exceeding the past and expectations of other people.

You are growing into that strong Cedar of Lebanon, that great white oak, that strong tree of righteousness. You have shifted, you have moved, you no longer live at the same address. Therefore, you can’t receive the same mail from the enemy. You have been supernaturally translated into another realm of grace and a new era of receiving from the Father. New prophetic insight and foresight. Your destiny has been hammered and carved out. Make a list this week of your God-given desires. Began to pray over each one and watch Yahweh move on them.

A fresh momentum is upon you now. And accelerated grace is upon you to advance the Kingdom of God. Yahweh is bringing you to a place of unity in Him, where your past and your present will no longer collide. The spirit of division or divided loyalty is broken off of you this day. This is akin to the spirit of self, fighting oneself, always second guessing the word of The Lord over oneself, the yo-yo back and forth syndrome, I will be committed, I want be committed. Being divided within. You are in a new season of wholeness. You have left the wilderness of brokenness, now dwelling in the City of wholeness.

You have left the land of wondering who you are, now living in the land of KNOWING who you are. You’ve made your exodus from the land of need-more, and now in your genesis of MORE THAN ENOUGH. You have turned your back to those and those things that wounded you and keep disappointing you.

Now with an open face you’re beholding His beauty, for your ashes, and His glory for your pain. The arms of the flesh cannot stop you because Yahweh is upholding you. The opinions of men cannot dictate your destiny nor your elevation because your destiny is in God’s hands and he is the one promoting you.

Celebrate your enemies. Speak longevity to them that they live long enough to see you fulfill all your destiny. In this hour, don’t waste your energy on negativity, invest your time, in YOUR TIME. Tis the season to be fulfilled and taste of the Latter Glory of your life.

Tell the devil, BLOW HIS FACE OFF, and shut his mouth with this, “It gets even better than this. I am fulfilling every inch and centimeter of my divine destiny and I AM RECEIVING EVERYTHING YAHWEH PROMISED ME AND DESIRED OF HIM!” I am making it because the MAKER IS ON THE INSIDE OF ME!

Restoration

by Hazel Straub

God is restoring what was stolen, lost and damaged in your life. God’s restoration has super abundance and no lack. He heals the broken-hearted and binds their wounds. His love expressed through his son, Jesus the Anointed One, covers our sins and we no longer cover our faces in shame.

The presence of God changes and heals us. He lovingly replaces our damaged lives and shapes us into his image.

Rejoice and praise God, during the restoration process!

And I will restore or replace for you the years that the locust has eaten—the hopping locust, the stripping locust, and the crawling locust, My great army which I sent among you. And you shall eat in plenty and be satisfied and praise the name of the Lord, your God, Who has dealt wondrously with you. And My people shall never be put to shame. And you shall know, understand, and realize that I am in the midst of Israel and that I the Lord am your God and there is none else. (Joel 2:25-27 AMP)

Worship God No Matter What!

by Apostle Gabriel Cross

Shadrach, Meshach, and Abednego said, “Our God is able to deliver us, but even if he doesn’t, we still will not bow and worship the golden image.” This is worship with no compromise. Even if God doesn’t do what we want him to, we should worship him because of who He is in our hearts; not just for what He’s placed within our hands.

Disregard the fiery furnace and how heated it may become, or how long you’ve been waiting, and worship with “no compromise”, just because, Jehovah Sabaoth is able to deliver…

Let Go And Give It To The Lord!

Photo by Brett Sayles on Pexels.com

by Apostle Gabriel Cross

When we say that we give something to the Lord, we have to completely let it go, so that He can completely work. It entails letting it go emotionally, mentally, and heart-wise. This requires aggression against the enemy and all his imps (such as worry, fear, stress, anxiety, restlessness, sleeplessness, etc).

It seems that sometimes we just give, but not to the Lord. Other times we give a little, but not completely to Yahweh. Giving involves us relinquishing, transferring, handing it over, and delegating it to the Father. He is more than capable and willing to take care of it ALL. When you truly give it to Yahweh, then your conversations and actions will demonstrate that you’re TRUSTING Him with it.

Yahweh is calling us into spiritual retirement, from the things only HE IS SUPPOSED TO DO. Therefore, in order for us to be completely RESTORED, we must REST in HIS CARE, in lieu of being restless, by the cares of this world. Turn in your resignation TODAY. It’s not your responsibility anyway, it’s His. REST, by doing yourself a favor, your health, your body, your emotions, your mind, your heart, and turn everything in HOLY ABANDONMENT TO THE FATHER!

Signed RESIGNED to the DIVINE…Selah

Labor To Enter His Rest

by Apostle Gabriel Cross

Do yourself a favor today, believe what God says about you and what his grace is doing to you. Enter into the inner REST of Faith. Be inner dependent and not independent.

It is not your occupation to make everything perfect. Regardless of offenses, criticisms, weaknesses or the past, you don’t live by the impulses of what others think or say. What God says, supersedes the rest.

There is a place of REST that Yahweh is summoning you to. Rest for the weary, the wounded, and those who keep trying to perfect themselves in the eyes of flesh. (Isaiah 28:12; Job 3:17-19)

You struggle when you try to be what others desire you to be or when you try to earn God ‘s love. However, there is peace simply being you and receiving his love for you. You are anointed to be You. Stop striving to “do” and start RESTing to “be.”

For we which have BELIEVED do enter into REST, as he said,…”Seeing therefore it remaineth that some must enter therein, and they to whom it was first preached entered not in because of unbelief: There remaineth therefore a REST to the people of God. For he that is entered into his REST, he also hath ceased from his own works, as God did from his. Let us labour therefore to enter into that REST….” (Hebrews 4:3, 6, 9-11 KJV)

JeHovah is always thinking bigger than you, believing in you, and challenging you to be You. Don’t fight him or resist him, just worship and agree. I command you to walk in the in the love and belief the Father has for you; love yourself the way He loves you. Do yourself a favor today, just labor to enter his REST! Enjoy the REST of your Day!

Daddy God’s Heart For You!

by Hazel Straub

Daddy God and his one and only Son Jesus loves us and their love sustains us. First we receive this love, until it permeates us. We leak love constantly from our heart. Love twinkles from our eyes and we see others with love, we receive from Daddy God that gives us life. We put God first and see others as dear beloved family members. Love forgives and treat others with loving kindness and honor.

Love redeems, restores and rejoices. Daddy God’s love flows into you, out of you, and changes hearts and heals divisions!

Love from the center of who you are; don’t fake it. Run for dear life from evil; hold on for dear life to good. Be good friends who love deeply; practice playing second fiddle. (Romans 12:9-10 MSG)

Daddy God’s Extravagant Love!

by Hazel Straub

Do you feel unworthy of the love of God, due to many mess ups? Good news! Our magnificent Daddy God strengthens us by his Spirit, as we open our heart’s door to him. He changes us with his extravagant love. Our roots go deep into the rich soil of his unconditional love and they drink living water. Fresh revelation of this awesome love melts our hearts, as we yield our will for his will. The stubbornness of wanting our own way, rebellion, pride, lust, idolatry, all relinquished, renounced, and repented, as we turn to Christ, and our hearts supple, pliable, surrender, to the heartbeat and rule of Daddy God.

Then, by constantly using your faith, the life of Christ will be released deep inside you, and the resting place of his love will become the very source and root of your life. Never doubt God’s mighty power to work in you and accomplish all this. He will achieve infinitely more than your greatest request, your most unbelievable dream, and exceed your wildest imagination!  He will outdo them all, for his miraculous power constantly energizes you. Then you will be empowered to discover what every holy one experiences—the great magnitude of the astonishing love of Christ in all its dimensions. How deeply intimate and far-reaching is his love! How enduring and inclusive it is! Endless love beyond measurement that transcends our understanding—this extravagant love pours into you until you are filled to overflowing with the fullness of God!

Never doubt God’s mighty power to work in you and accomplish all this. He will achieve infinitely more than your greatest request, your most unbelievable dream, and exceed your wildest imagination! He will outdo them all, for his miraculous power constantly energizes you.” (Ephesians 3:17-20 TPT)

Freedom From The Spirit Of The Past

by Apostle Gabriel Cross

Tis the season to come up and come out of that which is familiar and has held you captive. Jehovah Sabaoth empowers you to break and destroy the unhealthy cycles, the generational curses, and or coping vices in your life.

Unconsciously, we whom have been abused, rejected, or mistreated in some way, sometimes come into agreement with the abuse or rejection or mistreatment in some facet of our learned behaviors, thinking patterns, how we handle exhortation, or correction. This is usually rooted in having an orphan heart. For example, a person’s parents abused them but were in denial about it. Thus the child is wounded and develops a coping vice or an unhealthy cycle and LIVES A LIFE OF DENIAL. The denial was started way back when, but now perpetually prevalent, until it is dealt with. If not, what we refuse to deal with, begins to deal with us.

Beloved, don’t discount or reject what Jehovah Sabaoth is giving you now, because of what you’ve experienced in the past. I break off the spirit of the past and it’s influence and sever it’s hold from your life.

Don’t forfeit the true and the new for what is old and untrue. Come forth in the name of The Lord. Come up from the graves, the dead, Lodebar – dismal place of no pasture, no word, no communication, hopelessness, and total desolation. Come out of the prisons of Egypt – confined, limited, places of bondage. Come into the Davidic – place of tabernacle, sanctuary, covenant, habitation, fullness of joy, and boundless, pleasures forevermore. Come into the freedom and strong delivering grace of Jehovah Sabaoth, today!

Inner Rest Of Faith

by Apostle Gabriel Cross

It’s so fulfilling to REST. To Rest from all your labor after working all week. To REST in the finished work of Jesus on Calvary. To REST from all fear, worry, harm, stress, and dis ease. To REST from struggle, deadlines, and all the hustle and bustle of life. To enter the INNER REST of FAITH, whereby, we occupy the promise or promised land.

To REST, to be restored. To REST your mind, your heart, on the WORD promises and security of God. We labor, to enter, HIS REST, because he is the God, who makes all things possible and beautiful in HIS TIME! There is a REST for the weary, a refreshing, sanctuary, a full resort and complete sabbath REST, for the people of God. Where we are made confident that the Father has gone before us and provided everything we need.

Let’s enter in….. He says, “Come to Me, all you who labor and are heavy-laden and overburdened, and I will cause you to rest. [I will ease and relieve and refresh your souls.] Take My yoke upon you and learn of Me, for I am gentle (meek) and humble (lowly) in heart, and you will find rest (relief and ease and refreshment and recreation and blessed quiet) for your souls. (Jeremiah 6:16.) For My yoke is wholesome (useful, good–not harsh, hard, sharp, or pressing, but comfortable, gracious, and pleasant), and My burden is light and easy to be borne.” Come away with Me and I will take you there… (Matthew 11:28-30, Isaiah 28:12, Hebrews 5:9)

Deliberate Worshipers

by Apostle Gabriel Cross

Deliberate Worshipers expose what’s in their hearts, allowing the Father to heal their issues. Thus becoming more intimate with the Father. While impulsive worshipers, hide what’s in their hearts, refusing to deal with their issues, preventing them from becoming intimate with the Father. God wants your heart, in worship, not just worship…

God Chose The Weak

by Apostle Gabriel Cross

People use their own requirements and standards to decide who God has chosen or not. Consequently, neglecting God’s system, of choosing the foolish things, to confound the wise. God chose the weak things, to confound the strong. The base things of the world and the things which are despised hath God chosen; the things that are not to bring to naught the things that are: that no flesh should glory in his presence. (1 Corinthians 1:26-27)

You should choose to be chosen knowing that God chose you. Then when man comes to ordain you, they are only coming into compliance, with what Heaven has already done.

Expect The Best

by Apostle Gabriel Cross

Break the tradition of rejection, in your life and ACCEPT that your are ACCEPTED in the Beloved and REJECT that you are REJECTED.

EXPECT the best, with a God EXPECTANCY and don’t take your EXPECTORS off, for anyone. (Maybe it didn’t happen yet, but God is going to do it for you because he loves you.)
