By Sending The Messiah

Jonathan Cahnby Jonathan Cahn

In Romans 8, Paul writes this: “For what the law could not do…God did by sending His own Son… in order that the requirement of the law might be fulfilled in us…

In this is a secret. The law testified of a righteousness, a requirement, a lack, a debt, and an absence it couldn’t fulfill. But what fulfilled it? The sending forth of the presence of God. What the law could not do…God did by sending His Son. The answer never comes by dwelling on the problem or from what isn’t there or from what isn’t right. The answer comes by the presence of God coming into the problem. The answer to hate is not to hate back, but to love with the presence of God. The answer to what is wrong and evil is not to react to what is evil, but to all the more react with good. And the answer to sin isn’t to dwell on sin, but to fill yourself up with God. For what the law could not do… God, and only God, did and still does.

Today’s Mission

Today, solve the problems around you, or within you, not by dwelling on them, but by filling up with the presence of God.

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.
