The Man In The Dungeon

Jonathan Cahnby Jonathan Cahn

If you went to the castle of Herod Antipas at the beginning of the fourth decade of the first century, you would find the king living in luxury while a man in nothing but a garment of camel’s hair languished down below in the dungeon. It would seem clear who the successful one in life was and who the failure was. The man in the dungeon was, of course, Yochanan, John the Baptist. His life would soon be over. And yet 2000 years later, no one thinks of the name “Herod” as something good. And this particular Herod is remembered for being a corrupt, compromised, immoral, evil man. But Yochanan would become among the most honored and revered people who ever lived. He would bring Messiah and salvation to Israel and to millions of lives. So don’t ever judge your life, or whether you’re a winner or a loser, by the way it looks, or by your circumstance. Only follow the will of God, and do whatever you have to do to fulfill His call on your life. And no matter what – you will be a winner.

Today’s Mission – Today, look at your life, not by the standards of the world, but by the will and calling of God – And live accordingly.

The Olive Tree & The Construction Project

Jonathan Cahnby Jonathan Cahn

In Zechariah 4, the prophet is shown a vision of olive trees and a menorah – an oil lamp, being continually filled with oil. And then the prophet asks the angel what it all means. The angel answers, “This is the Word of the LORD to Zerubbabel: ‘Not by might, nor by power, but by My Spirit,’ says the LORD of hosts.” The Word is a promise that the building of the Second Temple, so filled with problems and obstacles, will be completed. But it will not be completed because of man’s power or might but by the Spirit of God.

God is telling them that even something as concrete as a building project must be done by the Spirit of God. If even a construction project is to be accomplished by the Spirit of God and the anointing, then how much more the things you need to do in your life? Do all things by the Spirit, even your job, your relationships, your tasks, and of course, your ministry. For it’s not by might, nor by power, but by His Spirit, says the Lord of hosts.

Today’s Mission – Today, make it your aim to accomplish the things you need to do by the Spirit of God.
