Decree The Thoughts Of God

Pure Glory

by Apostle Gabriel Cross

There are numerous scriptures that support and instruct us on how to think, what to meditate on, and why we should renew our mind. Positively, your mind needs nourishment and encouragement daily. If your mind doesn’t receive the right spiritual food, it will gravitate towards the negative. What you hear, determines how you feel. How you feel effects how you live.

Regardless, what happens today, prophesy life, provision, prosperity, and providence over yourself. Speak only what the WORD says about you. What you THINK ABOUT, YOU BRING ABOUT. As a man THINKS in his heart, so is he! (Proverbs 23:7)

We decree the thoughts of God (thoughts to prosper), sanctified thoughts (thoughts that are pure), creative thoughts (thoughts to affect and bring change), freeing thoughts (thoughts that relieve stress), wholesome thoughts (thoughts that heal), wise thoughts (thoughts that produce wealth), and joyful thoughts (thoughts that fill…

She’s finally finished


I have been working on this painting for a while now and I am happy to say she is finished. I am sad to say that she will be going to her new home. She has been around my living room for a while now, but the painting is paid for. So I will just have these pictures of her to remember her by. Yet looking at the finished work reminds me that one day God will be finished with me, but for now I am still a work in progress.

A love letter from God


For God is love.

Every bit of God’s love is in creation. His footprint of love is in creation. Jesus was the living Word and where He walked…, where He lived….love, the air He breathed…love, the ground on which He spilt His blood…love. A loving touch by a loving Son felt in the fabric of Creation.

God’s touch of love was in Creation. His loving breath into Adam’s lungs. The gift of life given by a loving Father by His very breath. The breath of love. His hands of love. His imprint of love is in the very fabric of Creation.

This beautiful earth which was created for us is a love letter from our Creator God. He created us and gave us the gift of life to enjoy the beauty of His creation.

A loving Father, a loving son Jesus, a gentle…

Love/Ai (personal thoughts)

Love/Ai (personal thoughts)

As I have dived deeper into the message on love, I have looked to other languages to see how they say the word love. In Japanese the word love is ai meaning love and affection. It is not the word used for romance or passion. The most interesting thing I found while looking at how to write this word of love is that it takes thirteen strokes to write the kanji character Ai.

My attempt at writing this kanji.

That made me think of one of my favorite chapters in the Bible 1 Corinthians 13, the chapter on love. For those who are superstitious the number 13 is an unlucky number, but to me it is a number that spells love. When ever I question myself if a thought or action is right with God, I take it to this chapter. If it is what the words in this chapter says love is then I know I am in alignment with the Word of God and if it is not, then I know to take corrective actions. Thirteen strokes also made me think of the stripes Jesus took upon His body before He was crucified. Thirty nine stripes He took that day, okay that was definitely more than thirteen. He spent three days in the grave, rising on the third day. three times thirteen is thirty nine. These are just my thoughts, but ever since I realized that the number thirteen can be related to the Love of Jesus the kanji character really stuck out to me.

The Hidden Glory of Love

Chozeh Connections

As I read through the Gospel of John over the weekend, my favorite New Testament book, I remembered a dream I saw on Friday morning. The dream seemed to focus on a small footbridge that spanned a canal. The unending canal ran adjacent and parallel to an unending road. The scenery was beautiful, a lot of vibrant greenery, lawns and shrubs. President Trump and his family were in a house across the road and there were some other people on the canal side. The Holy Spirit never fails to amaze in His ability to communicate through two seemingly unrelated activities: a dream and a random selection of Scripture. However, the “parallels” in my dream became clearer as I read the Gospel and revisited Israel in the time of Jesus.

Censorship and Cancel Culture?

The Pharisees were annoyed that Jesus had gained quite a following. They would have preferred that He…

Loved And Privileged By Yahweh

Pure Glory

by Apostle Gabriel Cross

Spending time meditating on Yahweh’s goodness and mercy. I love my life. I am grateful to be loved and privileged to be different. I’m just overwhelmed by the Love he has for me. There is nothing greater, nothing stronger, nothing more powerful, nothing more gratifying, and nothing more constant, THAN THE LOVE YAHWEH HAS FOR YOU! Who can measure how deep his love is for you? How great is his love for you? How high? How wide? I don’t know, because the more we receive his love, the more revelation is released from his love.

Jesus loves you more than you can fathom, you don’t know how much he loves you. You don’t know how much he loves you…Selah

We Are Loved

Overcoming The Times

Whoever you are, Wherever you are from, No matter what you have done…I want to let you know that God loves you, and He will never stop loving you. Neither your accomplishments nor your failures, Your victories nor your defeats qualify you nor disqualify you from God’s love.

Let the truth of God’s Word set you free. When God looked at us, He doesn’t think paying with the most precious thing He had in all of eternity, that’s Jesus Christ, was too high a price for you and I. God displayed for all of creation and eternity, His immeasurable and untouchable love for us. This kind of love is hard to comprehend by the natural man. Afterall, prior to us accepting salvation we had no understanding of spiritual things. Yet even inspite of us doing mischievous things, God still loved us: And when we ask Him to save us, The…

love does not mean being a pushover


“We must stand up for the rights of our neighbour who is suffering from injustice;
we must defend them all the more vigorously because we see Jesus present in them.
Surely this is our duty because of our love for others for his sake.
We have no right to be ‘sleeping watchmen’ or dumb watch-dogs.
Whenever we see evil we must sound the alarm.”

Blessed Charles de Foucauld

(Sainte-Chapelle / Paris, France /Julie Cook / 2018)
Just because we are Christians does not mean that we are to bend to every whim of man.
We are not commanded to bend to everything and anything that happens in the name of
worldly tolerance and acceptance.
Our Christian beliefs in such things as compassion, acceptance and love…does not equate to the
acceptance and approval of sinful acts and actions.
Things that go against the word of God.

As Christians we understand that…

Amazing Love…

Beholding Him Ministries

John 3.16Love 4God proved His love on the Cross. When Christ hung, and bled, and died, it was God saying to the world, ‘I love you.’Ephesians 2:4-5But God, being rich in mercy, because of the great love with which he loved us, even when we were dead in our trespasses, made us alive together with Christ— by grace you have been saved—

1 John 4:9-11In this the love of God was made manifest among us, that God sent his only Son into the world, so that we might live through him. In this is love, not that we have loved God but that he loved us and sent his Son to be the propitiation for our sins. Beloved, if God so loved us, we also ought to love one another.

Galatians 2:20I have been crucified with Christ. It is no longer I who live, but Christ who lives…
