Pure Covenant

by Apostle Gabriel Cross

I am realizing more and more every day that what Yahweh does, is doing, and has done concerning me, is inevitable. No one can stop or prevent him. Nothing can stand in his way. His favor is impervious to the opinions, actions of others, and diabolical plots of the enemy. 

They along with the enemy may have meant it for my evil and demise but Yahweh made it for my good and uprise. He turned it to solidify my mission trip and calling on my life. Now, I am more convinced, more persuaded, and completely settled in my spirit than ever.

Because I know in whom I have believed in and that he has sent me and has done it. It’s not my idea or your idea, it is Yahweh’s plan. And he has promised to fulfill it. It is his perfect will.

for which cause I also suffer these things; nevertheless I am not ashamed. For I know whom I have believed, and am persuaded that He is able to keep that which I have committed unto Him against that Day.” (2 Timothy 1:12)

Learning to value yourself is not being all about yourself. It is obeying Yahweh concerning yourself and taking notice of those who value, support, and remain committed to your divine purpose in their lives.

When you have to constantly question or remind someone what you have to offer, almost to the point of trying to convince them or buy them to be in your life. This is a sign of being devalued and too much work. As a parent, spiritual father, and entrepreneur, I can always tell true sons and daughters or authentic business partners, by their love in action not love in words alone. 

So my beloved, I made a promise to myself last year in the hospital, with a heart only functioning at 5 percent, because I entered into a deep depression. I had given up on myself. I wasn’t fit to live but I wasn’t quite ready to die. 

I made myself a promise, after I repented for neglecting to care for myself. I promised myself this time, I am going to live better (life to the max). I am going to love harder (the way Abba loves me). And I am going to laugh forever (stop taking people so seriously who aren’t serious about me). I may have lost some friends, family, sons, daughters, and business constituents, but I am stress free, I am so fulfilled, and I am on my way to fulfilling my purpose. 

However, when I take a prophetic view of these things, I ponder. Can you really lose someone who is not an active and pure covenantal part of your life? Selah 

Even now, I am writing this from the hospital, but you would not know that because I refuse to make an excuse for my real life. I just live it. The hospital nor the doctors define who I am nor where I am going. Yahweh does. So I am not living, cooking, prophesying, singing, ministering, or dressing for where I am at, but for where I am going. God never calls us out of where we are but out of where we are going. This is why he called Abram, Abraham, meaning “Father of many”, before he even had any. 

So, I am not focusing on where I am but where I am going. I hope this encourages you to do the same.

  3. “Learning to value yourself is not being all about yourself.”

    This point was simply one (of many) God used to speak to me this morning from your post.

    Thank you for sharing more of your story, and how God is getting the glory for it.

    I am praying for you, brother Gabriel! When we are weak, He is strong!

    “For you, O Lord, have delivered my soul from death, my eyes from tears, my feet from stumbling, that I may walk before the Lord in the land of the living.” Psalm 116:8 (NIV)

  8. Live with joy and ring a bell ,
    Go to heaven after watching hell ,
    With God you’ve  risen ,
    After you tripped and  nearly  fell ,
    You would rise and really swell ,
    All is good and truly well ,
    Nothing to scare and you can tell ,
    Sing for peace  and in peace dwell …
