Japan’s Ambassador & The Enemy’s Strategy

Jonathan Cahnby Jonathan Cahn

In 1941, the Japanese ambassador was in Washington D.C. It seemed he was there to seek peace. But at the same moment, the Japanese empire was about to launch the attack on Pearl Harbor. They had sent their ambassador to Washington as a distraction so that the American government would have no clue what was about to happen. Distraction is a key strategy of warfare. The aim is to keep one’s enemy bogged down with falsehood or non-essential battles – that he loses the real war. The enemy also uses distractions to take you away from your calling and your victory. He wants you to get caught up in issues which mean nothing, secondary doctrines, personal rivalries, pointless worries, fruitless endeavors. He wants you so bogged down with losing battles so that you stay far away from the good fight you’re called to fight. And you’ll be so exhausted in the wrong fight, that you’ll lose the war. So all the more fix your eyes straight ahead, and don’t be moved. For the devil is in the distraction.

Today’s Mission – Today, fix your eyes straight ahead and don’t be distracted from your purpose.

The Interruption Of Heaven

Jonathan Cahnby Jonathan Cahn

Few people like commotion, trouble, or change. We seek peace, situations of no commotion. But if you really want a place where there’s no commotion, go to a cemetery. That which is dead does not cause any commotion. But light coming into darkness causes commotion. So the life of God coming into a dead world is going to cause commotion. When Messiah came into the world, He created a stir. When He came into Jerusalem, He caused a commotion. God’s presence causes commotion. If He’s come into your life, then there’s got to be commotion. Don’t seek to walk a commotion-free walk, or to live a commotion-free life. It will end up dead! Rather, what you need is something to get stirred up and get turned over a little bit. Let God interrupt your routine, let Him shake you out of it. Fix your eyes on God. Forget the rut, and forget the routine. Let the presence of God come fresh in your life. Let it cause a commotion! Stir it up! Because God wants to bring the cemetery in your life… to life!

Today’s Mission – Today, seek to be especially open to be interrupted by God’s voice, God’s leading, and God’s purposes. Let your day be stirred up by His presence.
