Heavenly Eyes And The Final Story

Jonathan Cahnby Jonathan Cahn

The story is told of a man who was taken up to heaven and allowed to stay on the condition that he could not indulge in his habit of criticizing whatever he saw. He saw a cart stuck in the mud, with one pair of horses yoked to its front, with another pair yoked to its rear – the angel was urging both pairs of horses to move forward. It was more than the man could bear. He started criticizing and was immediately seized by two angels and shown to the door. Before the door closed behind him, he looked back and saw that the horses were winged and were all pulling the cart up from the mud and into the air. So for all the things in your life which don’t make sense, or seem to happen for no reason or purpose – all the loss, betrayal, crises, heartbreak, broken dreams… remember it’s not the final story. The final story you’ll see in heaven. Until then, know that God has promised that He will work all things in your life for good – and remember the cart and the winged horses.

The Messiah Of Geza

Jonathan Cahnby Jonathan Cahn

In Isaiah 11 it’s written, “There shall come forth a rod out of the stem of Jesse…” But the word in Hebrew for “stem” is “geza.” “Geza” actually means “a stump” a “cut down tree or plant.” This Scripture is prophesying that Messiah will come forth as a twig growing out of a cut off tree stump. Thus Messiah would spring up from the broken, cut off stump of the throne and line of David.

If you look at the lives of those who are born again, you can always find some sort of tree trunk; an old life cut down, and yet out of which comes forth the life of Messiah. The life of Messiah comes forth in the cutting down of our pride, our plans, our hopes, our dreams, our happiness, our security, and all the rest of the old life. That is when Messiah’s life begins to grow. Remember that. Even now, when you see hopes, comforts, plans, securities, and dreams cut down in your life, don’t despair. For in Messiah, from every cut-down trunk, will come forth a shoot of something far better.

Today’s Mission – Today, give God your broken hopes and dreams. And surrender your current plans and desires to His will and allow Him to grow something better.
