Prison’s End

Jonathan Cahnby Jonathan Cahn

A pastor in Communist Eastern Europe was abducted at gunpoint. He was put in prison, his identity stripped, his possessions gone, and his old life now just a memory. He lived the next part of his life in an underground prison. For most people, that would be a problem, an obstacle to ministry and God’s purposes. But the pastor didn’t see prison as a hindrance to God’s calling, to ministry, or to the purposes of God in his life, but rather as an opportunity. And that’s just what happened. In prison, he learned to worship, share the Gospel, minister, and glorify God.

You, too, may be dealing with an unwanted situation in your life. It may seem like a prison or a hindrance to God’s will, and you can’t wait for the situation to change. But don’t waste your time or your life living like that. Your ministry is not what begins when God changes your situation. It begins right now when you change your heart. Whatever your situation is, start glorifying Him fully right here and now. For then you will never know prison, only His glory.

Today’s Mission – Today, in whatever situation you find yourself in, glorify God and praise Him.

Churches Of Ghosts

Jonathan Cahnby Jonathan Cahn

Proverbs 21:16 says, “The man who wanders off from the way of understanding will dwell in the congregation of the dead.” The Hebrew word for ‘congregation’ is the word ‘kahal.’ When translated into Greek, it becomes ‘ecclesia,’ which means ‘church.’ So it could be translated like, “The man who wanders off from the way of understanding will dwell in the church of the dead.

This is relevant to our day as we witness more and more churches and denominations wandering away from the Word of God in order to follow the ways of the world and the dictates of the times. In doing so, many have even embraced what the Bible clearly calls an abomination. They’ve wandered off, and so it’s no accident that these same denominations have largely become the churches of the dead. It’s true of churches and true of people. All the more, in a day of wandering off and apostasy, you be the one who holds to God’s Word in everything. Be that person of no compromise, and you will never end up dwelling in a church or a life of the dead.

Today’s Mission – Is there an area of your life where you’re not living or following what the Word of God says? Today make up your mind to get that part of your life in the center of His will.
