Heaven’s Enclave

Jonathan Cahnby Jonathan Cahn

Philippians 3:20 says, “For our citizenship is in heaven from where we also wait for a savior.” The Greek word behind the word citizenship specifically referred to a colony of people living according to the laws of their native country outside their native country. So even though they weren’t home, they were living as if they were. What this reveals is that you are citizen of heaven, not earth. Heaven is your native land. And even though you are not presently living there, you are to be living on earth as if you were living in heaven – not ultimately subject to the laws of this world, but according to the laws of heaven. This is an incredible truth – You don’t have to be bound any more by the laws of this world, the laws of sin and death, guilt, failure, frustration, anger, regret, or fear. You don’t have to submit to any bondage. You are not of this world. Live by laws of heaven, the ways of heaven, the rights of heaven, the privileges of heaven, and the freedom of heaven. For you are a citizen of heaven!

Today’s Mission – Today, choose to live unbound by the laws of the flesh, and of sin and death, but live by the laws of heaven.

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.
