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)

  1. ‘Love your enemies’ is probably one of Jesus’ most radical teachings. If only many Churches obeyed this doctrine…

    Great post!

    • Yes, loving our enemies is radical but changes everything! Thank you!


  2. Our enemies are our friends; they just don’t know it yet. Priceless! God causes ALL things to work for the good of those called according to his purpose. (Romans 8:28).

    • Yes, God’s ways are not our natural inclination. Abundant blessings!


  5. This is a new way to look at it. Without giving it deep thought before, my enemies have been reasons I drew closer to God, more prayerful and more cognizant of the sadness in their own lives. Our enemies are our friends. It’s hard to view them in that light when their intentions are to hurt you. But I get it. Thank you for framing it like that. #newperspective

  6. Amen. That is why Jesus said that we should love our enemy. Because of them we draw closer to God. Thank you for this great post.
