The Ministry Of Darkness

Jonathan Cahnby Jonathan Cahn

When the astronomer Edwin Frost of the Yerkes Observatory was nearing his death, he was asked, “Doctor, are you afraid to die?” Frost, who had lost his eyesight, smiled and shook his head, “I’ve seen too many stars to be afraid of the night.

Most people think of the night as something negative, or something of absence. But to an astronomer, night is the time of revelation, of mysteries, and fullness. It’s the night that reveals the stars. Take this attitude of the astronomer to every part of your life. See the dark times of your life in a new way. They are there to reveal the blessings and faithfulness of God – even the lights of God. For the righteous shine as stars. When? At night. For stars and astronomers, the night is the time of shining, and blessing. Therefore, don’t fear the dark times, the hard times, or the bad times. For it’s in the night when the stars shine most bright. Don’t focus on the dark, but focus on shining. And remember that it’s at night when God’s blessings and faithfulness also shine. And you’ve seen too many stars to be afraid of the night.

Today’s Mission – Today, don’t fear the darkness, but use it for God’s glory. Become the blessing in your circumstance and the light in your darkness.

The Enemy’s Whistle Call

Jonathan Cahnby Jonathan Cahn

When I was a child, I remember being in a car with my mother. She was parking next to a sidewalk, and an old man with a mustache and a whistle came running out blasting his little whistle. He didn’t want anyone parking in front of his house. So if he saw a car parking there, he ran out with his whistle. Most people would move because they believed they were parking illegally. But the truth was, there was nothing illegal about it, and the man had absolutely no authority to do what he was doing. But as long as he convinced people that he did have the authority, then he did. As long as they believed him, they took off. So it is with the enemy. The enemy has no real authority. But if you believe that he does, he will. The voice of sin, temptation, fear, gloom, panic, despair, and darkness – has no authority. That means you don’t have to obey it or even pay it any mind. The next time the enemy tells you to do something, you just ignore it. He’s only blowing his whistle.

Today’s Mission – Today, listen to the voice of Messiah and ignore all those other voices – of sin, fear, bitterness, temptation, and gloom.
