The Chaldean Witness

Jonathan Cahnby Jonathan Cahn

In the Book of Kings, the mighty Assyrian Empire decided to lay siege to Jerusalem. The fierce Assyrian army camped around the walled city and threatened to destroy it as it had countless other cities. The Assyrians were known to be the most savage of ancient armies. Entire cities would surrender out of hand in their presence rather than risk their cruelty. The situation looked hopeless. Just then, an angel of the Lord went out and struck down over a hundred thousand of the Assyrian army. Another miracle of the Bible the world finds hard to believe.

Two ancient historians, who weren’t believers or from Israel, bear witness to the miracle. One was Berosus, a historian from Chaldea. He records that the Assyrian army was besieging Jerusalem. While they were camped around the city, ready to take it at night, a miracle happened. The Assyrian army was struck down by an invisible hand. This is amazing – a non-Jewish ancient historian confirming the veracity of an incredible and miraculous salvation. God saved His people from the certain calamity of a hopeless situation. How much more will He do the same for you?

Nourishing The Miracle

Jonathan Cahnby Jonathan Cahn

We were therefore buried with him through baptism into death in order that, just as Christ was raised from the dead through the glory of the Father, we too may live a new life. Romans 6:4

Yosef and Miriam, Joseph and Mary, were given the greatest of miracles, the life of God in their midst, in the form of the child, the Messiah. But they had to take that miracle home and care for it, nourish it, feed it, protect it, watch over it, cherish it.

When you have a baby, that’s what you do. Anything that could harm the baby, you remove from your life and from being near your baby. You feed that baby, and watch to meet its needs, at all times.

So the new life God has given you, your salvation, is a miracle. But you have to care for that miracle, nourish it, feed it, protect it. Anything that would harm your new life, your salvation, any sin, habit, or thought, you have to remove from your life. And you need to daily feed and nourish that life with the Word and love of God. You have a miracle. Nurture it, protect it, guard it, bless it, and that miracle will grow and become all that it was born to be.

Today’s Mission – Treat your salvation, your new life, as a treasure from God. Especially guard it from any negative thing, any thought, any sight, any sin, any temptation, that would hurt it. Nourish it with the Word and love of God.
