About Your Enemies

by Apostle Gabriel Cross

Your enemies are really your friends but don’t know it yet.
Your enemies bring out the best in you.
Your enemies are your greatest fanfare.
Your enemies make your rough edges smooth.
Your enemies are going to live long enough to see you fulfill ALL your destiny.
Your enemies push you to new realms of worship and intercession.
Your enemies confirm how powerfully important you really are.
Your enemies are now the people who are putting you UP, who were the people putting you DOWN.
Your enemies are at peace with you when your ways please the Lord.
You’re so blessed, that your enemies come at you one way and flee in seven other directions.
Your enemies are anointed to serve a purpose for God in your life.

“But as for you, ye thought evil against me; but God meant it unto good, to bring to pass, as it is this day, to save much people alive.” (Genesis 50:20)

Go ahead thank God for “your enemies.”

So shall you say to Joseph: Forgive (take up and away all resentment and all claim to requital concerning), I pray you now, the trespass of your brothers and their sin, for they did evil to you. Now, we pray you, forgive the trespass of the servants of your father’s God. And Joseph wept when they spoke thus to him. Then his brothers went and fell down before him, saying, See, we are your servants (your slaves)! And Joseph said to them, Fear not; for am I in the place of God? [Vengeance is His, not mine.]
As for you, you thought evil against me, but God meant it for good, to bring about that many people should be kept alive, as they are this day.
(Genesis 50:17-20 AMP)

So they sent Joseph a message, “Before his death, your father gave this command: Tell Joseph, ‘Forgive your brothers’ sin—all that wrongdoing. They did treat you very badly.’ Will you do it? Will you forgive the sins of the servants of your father’s God?” When Joseph received their message, he wept. Then the brothers went in person to him, threw themselves on the ground before him and said, “We’ll be your slaves.” Joseph replied, “Don’t be afraid. Do I act for God? Don’t you see, you planned evil against me but God used those same plans for my good, as you see all around you right now—life for many people. Easy now, you have nothing to fear; I’ll take care of you and your children.” He reassured them, speaking with them heart-to-heart. (Genesis 50:17-20)

Adversity Develops Godly Character

by Hazel Straub

Trouble and adversity happen in our journey of life but God uses these things to build Godly character, inside of us. The fire of hardship, trials and obstacles refines us. The fire helps us learn to depend on God and not ourselves. We die to our fleshly responses, while in the fire.

God often takes us through troubles rather than immediately delivering us from them. Through this process, our character becomes more like Jesus. Joseph, was sold by his brothers as a slave. He was faithful to God but was falsely accused and ended up in a dungeon for many years. During this time, he forgave his brothers and got the character needed for his destiny, as prime minister in Egypt. He did not complain but looked to God to sustain him.

Thank God for troubles that drive us to our knees and to him. Do not complain but rejoice in the Lord. Lean into him for strength and rely on him and not your flesh. The fire of adversity puts pressure on us, so the fleshly ways get consumed in the flames, leaving us with a Godly character.

“Consider it a sheer gift, friends, when tests and challenges come at you from all sides. You know that under pressure, your faith-life is forced into the open and shows its true colors. So don’t try to get out of anything prematurely. Let it do its work so you become mature and well-developed, not deficient in any way.” (James 1:2-4 MSG)

But Joseph replied, “Don’t be afraid of me. Am I God, that I can punish you? You intended to harm me, but God intended it all for good. He brought me to this position so I could save the lives of many people. No, don’t be afraid. I will continue to take care of you and your children.” So he reassured them by speaking kindly to them. (Genesis 50:19-21 NLT)

Change!

by Apostle Gabriel Cross

A lifestyle full of repentance is a lifestyle full of worship. The most dangerous person in the world is a person who won’t admit that they are wrong.

Change, Acknowledge, consider your ways, confess, repent! Lord, I repent…Selah

Discouraged?

by Hazel Straub

Discouraged and thinking about quitting? Do not quit! If you continue to persevere, your spiritual muscles get stronger and you win! Difficulties do not define you. Many times, when we feel exhausted and are ready to quit, victory is close. Look to Jesus for strength, and see yourself going over the finish line. You have come this far by faith and trusting in God to sustain you! Keep going! You are an overcomer!

My fellow believers, when it seems as though you are facing nothing but difficulties, see it as an invaluable opportunity to experience the greatest joy that you can!  For you know that when your faith is tested it stirs up in you the power of endurance. And then as your endurance grows even stronger, it will release perfection into every part of your being until there is nothing missing and nothing lacking.

We Need Each Other

by Apostle Gabriel Cross

There was a time when I would sing, “Long as I got King Jesus, I don’t need anyone else.” However, I can’t sing that anymore, because it’s not true nor scriptural. God created relationships and relationships are divine. Therefore, “savor,” do not sever the relationships where you are mutually involved, God gave us each other as well as himself.

Come To The God Zone

by Hazel Straub

Today is a new day and the past does not define you. God desires to take you higher and into new dimensions. Listen to him call you with love, to know him. He is calling to you to embrace the unknown and to come into a closer deeper relationship with him. Forget how you have always done things and leave the familiar past in the past.

Embrace what he is doing today in your life.  As you listen and obey his voice, those besetting sins and habits that stymied you in the past season, will be easily overcome. His grace, mercy and love are with you. Venture out of your comfort zone into the God Zone! He is your help and strength.

“So he returned home to his father. And while he was still a long way off, his father saw him coming. Filled with love and compassion, he ran to his son, embraced him, and kissed him. His son said to him, ‘Father, I have sinned against both heaven and you, and I am no longer worthy of being called your son. “But his father said to the servants, ‘Quick! Bring the finest robe in the house and put it on him. Get a ring for his finger and sandals for his feet.  And kill the calf we have been fattening. We must celebrate with a feast, for this son of mine was dead and has now returned to life. He was lost, but now he is found.’ So the party began. (Luke 15:20-24 NLT)

Put Your Trust In God!

by Apostle Gabriel Cross

Trust in Jehovah with ALL your heart and don’t lean to your own understanding (reasoning, analyzing, rationalization), but in ALL your ways ACKNOWLEDGE Jehovah, and he will direct your paths.

Trust is: 
Reliance on the integrity, strength, and ability of Jehovah. 
Confident expectation in God.
To surrender your rights to something and entrust the Father with it.
The obligation or responsibility imposed on the Father. 
To leave care of something, someone, or situation in the hands of God. 

Take the cliché off your money, out of your pocket, and away from your banking account. Then transfer it to your heart “IN GOD WE TRUST.”

Grateful Praise To Yahweh

pexels-photo-8985590

by Hazel Straub

Yahweh, our covenant keeping God, is worthy of our heartfelt praise. He is so good to us, every day.

I praise him because he forgives my sins. He heals all my sickness and diseases. He has purchased me from death by the sacrifice of his one and only Son Jesus, who he resurrected and is on the throne in Heaven, praying for me . He loves me and is so merciful to me! He blesses me and renews my life. Hallelujah!

Let all that I am praise the Lord;
with my whole heart, I will praise his holy name.
Let all that I am praise the Lord;
may I never forget the good things he does for me.
He forgives all my sins
and heals all my diseases.
He redeems me from death
and crowns me with love and tender mercies.
He fills my life with good things.
My youth is renewed like the eagle’s! (Psalm 103:1-5)

Key To A Great Prayer Relationship With God

by Apostle Gabriel Cross

The most valuable thing to a dictatorship is “talking” but the most valuable thing to a relationship is “listening.”

It’s more successful to listen now gaining understanding, than misunderstand later for failure of listening.

May there be more emphasis on “listening” to the Father and talking less, than more emphasis on talking to the Father and listening less.

Pride has a tendency of talking a lot, but Love has a tendency of “listening more.”

Father, forgive me for talking so much when I pray, help me to “listen more” to learn your ways…

God is always speaking, we should always be “listening…”
To listen is strength, to talk is energy.
A very essential part of our worship is to “listen” not only to God but to each other. “Listen.”

Do Not Fear!

by Hazel Straub

I, the Lord God, am shaking everything that can be shaken. Only what is of me will remain. Do not fear the shaking, for I am with you. As you rest in me, your solid foundation, you will come through it. Trust me and fear not.

The earth was rocked at the sound of his voice from the mountain, but now he has promised, “Once and for all I will not only shake the systems of the world, but also the unseen powers in the heavenly realm! Now this phrase “once and for all” clearly indicates the final removal of things that are shaking, that is, the old order, so only what is unshakable will remain. Since we are receiving our rights an unshakable kingdom we should be extremely thankful and offer God the purest worship that delights his heart as we lay down our lives in absolute surrender, filled with awe. (Hebrews 12:26-28 TPT)

The Great Part of Loving God!

by Apostle Gabriel Cross

Just want to say to EVERYONE, (family, friends, and those who don’t know me).  “I LOVE YOU and I know there’s an anointing on it, because I mean it.”

I know it’s imperative to show love but sometimes people just need to hear it from someone who really means it.

A great part of Loving God is loving each other…

Transformation Of Your Mind

by Hazel Straub

Did you know that your thoughts either negative or positive, define your actions? 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, 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.

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)

Rest!

by Hazel Straub

All who are weary and heavy laden come to Me and REST. Cease from striving and trying to earn My favor. You have My favor. My son did the work on the cross. REST from being burden bearer and give your cares to Me, God. Rely on Me not yourself. Let Me be God and REST. Cease struggling instead snuggling, as you REST in Me.

Come to Me, all you who labor and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest. Take My yoke upon you and learn from Me, for I am gentle and lowly in heart, and you will find rest for your souls.  For My yoke is easy and My burden is light. (Matthew 11:28-30 NKJV)

Prophesy This!

by Apostle Gabriel Cross

Prophesy this over yourself today…

The Lord is my light and my salvation— whom shall I fear? The Lord is the stronghold of my life—of whom shall I be afraid? When the wicked advance against me to devour me, it is my enemies and my foes who will stumble and fall. Though an army besiege me, my heart will not fear; though war break out against me, even then I will be confident. One thing I ask from the Lord, this only do I seek: that I may dwell in the house of the Lord all the days of my life, to gaze on the beauty of the Lord and to seek him in his temple. For in the day of trouble he will keep me safe in his dwelling; he will hide me in the shelter of his sacred tent and set me high upon a rock. Then my head will be exalted above the enemies who surround me; at his sacred tent I will sacrifice with shouts of joy; I will sing and make music to the Lord. Hear my voice when I call, Lord; be merciful to me and answer me. Teach me your way, Lord; lead me in a straight path because of my oppressors. Do not turn me over to the desire of my foes, for false witnesses rise up against me, spouting malicious accusations. I remain confident of this: I will see the goodness of the Lord in the land of the living. Wait for the Lord; I will be strong and encouraged and wait in great expectation of the Lord.

Give Yahweh Praise – Let Go!

by Apostle Gabriel Cross

Let’s give Yahweh a “LET IT GO PRAISE.” If you desire people to cease from discussing and holding on to your past, then stop discussing theirs and let go of their past.

“For if you forgive people their trespasses [their reckless and willful sins, leaving them, letting them go, and giving up resentment], your heavenly Father will also forgive you. But if you do not forgive others their trespasses [their reckless and willful sins, leaving them, letting them go, and giving up resentment], neither will your Father forgive you your trespasses.” (Matthew 6:14, 15 AMP)

LET IT GO, it doesn’t belong to you anyway.

Happy New Year!

by Hazel Straub

It is not only about the New Year but who lives inside of you. As a believer in Jesus the Messiah, you are a part of his body. His victory over the enemy of our souls is our victory. Holy Spirit lives inside of you and leads and guides you into all Truth. This year we live as more than conquerors. Jesus overcame the enemy of our souls, and equips us for victory. Rejoice!

Happy New Year and abundant life in Christ Jesus!

Who could ever divorce us from the endless love of God’s Anointed One? Absolutely no one! For nothing in the universe has the power to diminish his love toward us. Troubles, pressures, and problems are unable to come between us and heaven’s love. What about persecutions, deprivations, dangers, and death threats? No, for they are all impotent to hinder omnipotent love,  even though it is written: All day long we face death threats for your sake, God. We are considered to be nothing more than sheep to be slaughtered! Yet even in the midst of all these things, we triumph over them all, for God has made us to be more than conquerors, and his demonstrated love is our glorious victory over everything!

Praise To Yahweh

by Hazel Straub

Behold God, the Mighty One, my salvation, deliverance, health, welfare, prosperity, and victory. I trust, have confidence, am sure, secure and bold, as he makes me feel safe, so I am not afraid or fearful. For Yah, Yahweh, the Existing One – I AM, who is the True God, is my strength, might, and song of praise because he is my salvation, deliverance, health, welfare, prosperity, and victory. (Isaiah 12:2)

Lord, open our eyes of our hearts, so we can focus and behold you. Let you, the Mighty One, the Existing One, be revealed to us, with understanding resounding in our hearts.

We open our mouths to raise a song of praise to you, who saves, delivers, heals, prospers, and gives us victory. Our grateful sounds and songs of worship, flow from our hearts.

Thank you, Yahweh. Hallelujah! (Join us in praising Yah!)

Don’t Be Fooled!

by Apostle Gabriel Cross

The devil, adversary, false accuser of the believer, is the Father of lies. Therefore, every time he speaks, he disguises the truth. When he says you cannot hear the voice of God, he is only confirming that you can. When he says that you are not delivered, he is only confirming that God has delivered you. When he says it’s not going to happen, he is only confirming what God has already done for you.

Usually, what the enemy disguises to you, is God’s truth to you. Don’t let him con you out of what already belongs to you. Don’t entertain or react to the FOOLERY of the ENEMY, you show him your belief in Yahweh’s word, when you don’t…Selah

Shine!

by Hazel Straub

In the Far North, where I live, this time of year the sun is low in the sky and vanishes quickly. However, snow on the ground reflects moonlight, ensuring that it is not totally dark.

Rather than curse the darkness let your light shine. The Spirit of God lives inside of us making us bright lights. Light conquers the darkness.

Shine with the love and life of God.
Shine with joy and praise.
Shine with peace and patience.
Shine with mercy and forgiveness.

Shine with goodness and faithfulness.
Shine with believing and trusting God.
Shine with the beauty of Jesus
Shine to light the way for God’s glory!

“You are the light of the world—like a city on a hilltop that cannot be hidden.  No one lights a lamp and then puts it under a basket. Instead, a lamp is placed on a stand, where it gives light to everyone in the house. In the same way, let your good deeds shine out for all to see, so that everyone will praise your heavenly Father.” (Matthew 5:14-16 NLT)

Rejoice In Jesus The Lamb Of God!

by Hazel Straub

Jesus the Christ is the reason, for this season of celebration. Before man was ever created, Jesus the Anointed One, the Lamb of God, was chosen as our ransom, so we could trust and know God. This amazing love brings light and life into our lives. Celebrate the Lamb of God, who takes away our empty lives with his precious blood and gives us abundant life! Rejoice!

For you know that God paid a ransom to save you from the empty life you inherited from your ancestors. And it was not paid with mere gold or silver, which lose their value. It was the precious blood of Christ, the sinless, spotless Lamb of God. God chose him as your ransom long before the world began, but now in these last days he has been revealed for your sake. Through Christ you have come to trust in God. And you have placed your faith and hope in God because he raised Christ from the dead and gave him great glory. (1 Peter 1:18-21 NLT)

Prayer For Faith Exceeding The Past

by Apostle Gabriel Cross

I pray today that your faith exceeds the boundaries of the past  and the limitations of your mind. I decree that your eyes would be opened to see your own value, your own attractiveness, and your Own God-given power and spheres of influence in this world. I pray that you would not be blinded or hindered by what you’re going through but that you would still SEE AND MOVE INTO WHAT GOD HAS FOR YOU. Because your heart has been through so much, I pray that Yahweh gives you a new one today. Although there may be or may have been some misunderstanding, discouragement, hardship, grief, and devastating unexpected’s in your life, GOD IS WORKING IT ALL TOGETHER FOR YOUR GOOD!

I decree that everything that has happened or happening in your life that’s not in line with God’s good and very good for you, I pray that TODAY, GOD MAKES IT LIKE IT NEVER WAS. The LOVE YAHWEH HAS FOR YOU, IS STRONGER AND GREATER THAN WHAT YOU’RE GOING THROUGH…Selah

Difficulties? Trust Yahweh!

by Hazel Straub

 My fellow believers, when it seems as though you are facing nothing but difficulties, see it as an invaluable opportunity to experience the greatest joy that you can! For you know that when your faith is tested it stirs up in you the power of endurance. And then as your endurance grows even stronger, it will release perfection into every part of your being until there is nothing missing and nothing lacking. (James 1:2-4 TPT)

Today, the challenge confronts us to trust in Yahweh, no matter how difficult we find our circumstances. Lean on him for strength and cast all your burdens and concerns on Yahweh because he cares for you. Ask him, to give you, his perspective on the difficulties you face. Rather than trying to navigate life in your strength, full of pride, and foolishly living independent of him, yield to him, knowing he cares for you. Our wounds cause us to move, in his strength, dependent on his help and support, to grow through the difficulties that face us. As we surrender to Yahweh’s guidance, we live in his love with trust and faith, and grow through it all, with joyfulness. He loves and cares for us!

Teach Me How To Worship

by Apostle Gabriel Cross

Break down every altar
In my heart that doesn’t lead to you
Destroy every kingdom that wasn’t built by you
Give me a deeper hunger for You
That only You can satisfy

Break open the depths of my spirit for the deep of your Spirit
Let a fresh wind blow through my soul
Fresh oil on my mind
Fresh fire in my heart
You are my only holy passion

Holy Spirit teach me how to worship You out of my spirit, not merely my soul
Baptize me in the culture of Your Kingdom
Take me to another realm not merely another level
Let grace fall on me like rain today
and like the greater David,

Glorious Light!

by Hazel Straub

Celebrate what God has done for us, by giving his unique son, Jesus, to redeem us from our sins and trespasses. When we accept him into our lives, as Lord and Savior, the darkness flees. The chains of the bondage of sin and curses are broken. He brings true peace to us. Rejoice!!!

Those who walked in darkness have seen a radiant light shining upon them. They once lived in the shadows of death, but now a glorious light has dawned! Lord, you have multiplied the nation and given them overwhelming joy! They are ecstatic in your presence and rejoice like those who bring in a great harvest, and those who divide up the spoils of victory! For you have broken the chains that have bound your people and lifted off the heavy bar across their shoulders, the rod the oppressor used against them. You have shattered all their bondage, just as you did when Midian’s armies were defeated.
Every boot of marching troops and every uniform caked with blood will be burned as fuel for the fire.

A child has been born for us; a son has been given to us. The responsibility of complete dominion will rest on his shoulders, and his name will be: The Wonderful One! The Extraordinary Strategist! The Mighty God! The Father of Eternity! The Prince of Peace! Great and vast is his dominion. He will bring immeasurable peace and prosperity. He will rule on David’s throne and over David’s kingdom to establish and uphold it by promoting justice and righteousness from this time forward and forevermore. The marvelous passion that the Lord Yahweh, Commander of Angel Armies, has for his people will ensure that it is finished! (Isaiah 9:2-7 TPT)

Hostage To The Past?

by Apostle Gabriel Cross

Have you heard the following statements? God is tired of you. God is not going to keep forgiving you over and over. Because of your weakness, the Holy Spirit is going to leave you because he doesn’t dwell in an unclean temple. God is going to do it with you or without you. According to man’s religion, man’s private interpretation, and man’s heart, this is true. However, according to God’s pure religion (which is pure worship to God), the scripture, and God’s heart, this is false. (James 1:27)

First of all, the Word declares that Jehovah’s strength is everlasting, his love is unending, and his mercy endures forever. (Jeremiah 31:3; Isaiah 26:4; Psalms 118) Therefore, God is not tired, man is tired, because he or she is living in their own strength and not the power of the Holy Spirit–Agape love.

Secondly, the carnal man has a problem with forgiveness, and certain standards that man sets, but rules and legalism never delivered or changed anybody. The grace of God is the power that transforms our weaknesses to strengths and it is the LOVE OF GOD that draws us to Christ, to repentance, and to true deliverance. The Holy Spirit doesn’t leave us because of our weaknesses, he helps us with our weaknesses. infirmities (feebleness of mind or body); by implication, malady; morally, frailty:–disease, infirmity, sickness, weakness), (Romans 8:26).

The Word also declares, in Matthew 28:20, Jesus will never leave you nor forsake you. Yahweh is going to do it with you or WITH YOU. Don’t walk in condemnation, walk in your righteousness. You are not righteous because of your deeds, but you are righteous because of Christ’s deeds. You’re worthy, because Jesus made you worthy. If we confess our sin, he is faithful, and just, to forgive us and cleanse us from all unrighteousness ( 1 John 1:9). Receive Christ’s forgiveness for you, forgive yourself, and DON’T ALLOW ANY DEMON, ANY RELIGION, OR ANYONE (including yourself), TO HOLD YOU HOSTAGE TO THE PAST, even if it was just 2 seconds ago, YOU, ARE, RE, -DEEMED!

The Rarest Treasures Of Life

by Hazel Straub

The rarest treasures of life are found in Yahweh’s truth and his Word that brings us joy. King David wrote this poem of praise. Speak this this over yourself today and watch your life change for the best!

Yahweh’s Word is perfect in every way;  how it revives our souls! Yahweh’s laws lead us to truth, and his ways change the simple into wise. Yahweh’s teachings are right and make us joyful; his precepts are so pure!  Yahweh’s commands challenge us to keep close to his heart!   The revelation-light of his Word makes my spirit shine radiant. Yahweh’s decrees are trustworthy.  The fear of Yahweh is pure, enduring forever. The rarest treasures of life are found in his truth. That’s why God’s Word is prized like others prize the finest gold.  Sweeter also than honey are his living words— sweet words dripping from the honeycomb! For they warn us, your servants, and keep us from following the wicked way, giving a lifetime guarantee: great success to every obedient soul! 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 19:7-14 TPT)

Be Real And Healed!

by Apostle Gabriel Cross

What Yahweh has placed within you cannot be contained or restricted, it must be shared and distributed. What the Father has given you is greater than where you are and where you have been. It’s not geography therapy but heart therapy. The more our hearts are changed everything about us changes.

Most people who are not being REAL, never get HEALED. They never get HEALED because they will not be REAL about how they REALLY FEEL. Yahweh IS RAISING UP A NATION OF IMPERFECT PEOPLE who will REALLY WORSHIP AND REALLY LOVE HIM WITHAL their HEARTS. So today, please don’t just go to church and have church, but be the CHURCH in POWER AND DEMONSTRATION.

Yahweh doesn’t desire a Sunday affair but worship that is a lifestyle (how we treat each other Monday-Saturday). Most of us are used to worship out of a discipline (someone telling us what to do or what’s on the projector screen). But Yahweh wants us to worship out of a LOVE AFFAIR (because you love JESUS). When we change, God sees change as worship, therefore, worship isn’t just what you do but WORSHIP IS WHO YOU ARE…SELAH

God Is Love!

by Hazel Straub

God is love and his love for us is not based on good or bad behavior. He sent us one and only Son, Jesus, to die for us due to his love. His love flows into us and then we overflow with love and show it to one another. His love brightens our lives and the ones with whom we come into contact and demonstrate his love.

You are beloved and loved!

Those who are loved by God, let his love continually pour from you to one another, because God is love. Everyone who loves is fathered by God and experiences an intimate knowledge of him. The one who doesn’t love has yet to know God, for God is love. (1 John 4:7-8 TPT)

Yahweh Our Faith-Fortress

by Hazel Straub

When do you seek God the most? Is it when everything is going well or when you experience difficulties? In winter, when it is cold, you enjoy the heat of a fire or central heat. Similarly,In the midst of hardship, we see our need for God, and we seek for him with all our heart. He is always there for us, is our refuge and strong deliverer. He hears and answers us!

I love you, Yahweh, and I’m bonded to you,
    my strength!
Yahweh, you’re the bedrock beneath my feet,
    my faith-fortress, my wonderful deliverer,
    my God, my rock of rescue where none can reach me.
    You’re the shield around me,
    the mighty power that saves me,
    and my high place.
All I need to do is to call on you,
    Yahweh, the praiseworthy God.
    When I do, I’m safe and sound in you—
    delivered from my foes!
(Psalm 18:1-3 TPT)

Agape Love Of God

Challenges Matures Us!

by Hazel Straub

We grow, as we face challenges, in our life and trust Abba God to bring us through all of them. The hard things in life, help us mature  in our faith. Our circumstances does not change the incredible love and care that Abba God gives us.  He is always with us, he is our strength and refuge, in the midst of the storm.

Difficulties call for us to place our confidence in God and to rest in him. It is important not to rely on our own understanding or intellect but on the guidance of Holy Spirit. Keep your eyes focused on the Lord and know that his finished work, on the cross, makes us triumph over our circumstances.

The one who loves us gives us an overwhelming victory in all these difficulties.  I am convinced that nothing can ever separate us from God’s love which Christ Yeshua our Lord shows us.. We can’t be separated by death or life, by angels or rulers, by anything in the present or anything in the future, by forces or powers in the world above or in the world below, or by anything else in creation. (Romans 8:37-39 NOG)

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)
