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.

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)
