The Virgin’s Responsibility

Jonathan Cahnby Jonathan Cahn

The Hebrew Almah Miryam is the Virgin Mary. We have so many songs about her. It’s been the theme of art and music for two thousand years. However it rarely goes deeper to the truth. It wasn’t just Virgin and Child. It was Virgin and Responsibility. We tend to downplay that part. If you’ve received the Lord’s new life, then you have the newborn presence of God in your life. If you think that it’s going to be all Christmas Carols, you’re in for a rude awakening. That seems to be the problem with many of our walks. We want the Christmas experiences, but we don’t want the responsibility. We want the new life but we don’t want anything to take care of. We don’t want the sacrifice involved with having a treasure. If you want the life and presence of God, then you have to take the responsibility. You’ve got a newborn. That means you have to take care of this life, cherish, protect, sacrifice for it, and treasure it. You’ve been blessed with the greatest of blessings, but remember, life isn’t neat and blessings must be treasured.

Today’s Mission – What responsibility has God entrusted you with? Seek to fulfill your charge with more passion and excellence today – For with the blessing comes the responsibility.

Breaking The Law Of Cause And Effect

Jonathan Cahnby Jonathan Cahn

The Law of Cause and Effect states that every effect has a cause and every cause produces an effect. Two thousand years ago, Yeshua; Jesus was killed. Yet within weeks of His death, His disciples were proclaiming the Good News of salvation to their nation and then to the ends of the earth. In just a few weeks they had become the most joyful, confident, and powerful of peoples. The Law of Cause and Effect would dictate that the disciples would have ended up depressed, discouraged, and finished. But something changed the Law of Cause and Effect… the Resurrection and the outpouring of the Spirit of God. The world works according to the Law of Cause and Effect, but God’s kingdom works by the law of the new life and the Spirit. Maybe you’ve been rejected, abused, abandoned, or unloved. The Law of Cause and Effect says you’re stuck, but the Law of the Spirit says to forget the past and walk in the newness of life in Messiah. For the law of the Spirit of life has set you free from the law of sin and death… the law of cause and effect.

Today’s Mission – The Passover-Shavuot Resurrection Power: Determine, by the power of God, to break out of every law of cause and effect that isn’t good, every cause and effect of sin, of habit, of temptation, and the past.
