Come To Me Present Tense

Jonathan Cahnby Jonathan Cahn

On the Feast of Tabernacles, the nation of Israel would pray for the outpouring of rain and God’s blessings on the land. So it’s no accident, that on that same feast, the Feast of Tabernacles, that Messiah said, “If anyone is thirsty, let him come to Me and drink. He who believes in me, as the Scirpture has said, out of his innermost being shall flow rivers of living water.” He spoke of the Spirit. And He did so on the Feast of Tabernacles because it was then that Israel was praying for a future outpouring of rain and blessings. But notice something – they were praying for water, for rain, to be poured out in the future. But Messiah spoke in the present tense. In other words, the life of the Spirit, and the life of abundance, is never dependent on waiting for some blessing to happen in the future. It’s now. So don’t live a life waiting for God’s blessings. Enter His blessings now. Enter the abundant life now. For the Spirit and the blessings of abundant life are now. And the only time to enter it – is now!

Today’s Mission – What blessing from God are you still waiting for? Live in the blessing of God now, start walking in it, start living it.

The World Of Campers

Jonathan Cahnby Jonathan Cahn

Chag Sukkot is the Hebrew name for the celebration of the Feast of Tabernacles. This was because, during the feast, every worshiper camped out in a sukkah; a type of tent, under the skies of Jerusalem.

There is a profound truth here. Israel was home in the Promised Land, and you don’t normally camp out at home. But God wanted them to remember the days when they journeyed through the wilderness in tents, and when God camped out with them. The Promised Land speaks of Heaven, and the wilderness speaks of this present life. Nothing here lasts forever, and all your circumstances are only tents on your journey to the place where things do last forever. Remember, you’re camping. In the Promised Land, you’ll dwell in places that never pass away. And there you’ll remember this life as the days of your camping out; as tents in which you slept the night. And you’ll give thanks and say “how lovely were your dwelling places”- because God was there with you – those were the days of your journeying when you camped out with God in tents.

Today’s Mission – Today, view this world and this life in a new way as a camping trip, where everything is a temporary tent – and live in view of your final destination – heaven.
