Hidden Symbolism: Inherit the Wind

By Wade Martin Hughes, Sr. Kyfingers@aol.com

You can tell how big a person is: by what it takes to

discourage him.

There are many lessons hidden in the Bible in symbolism.

Symbolism is the art or practice of using symbolic things that have intangible representation or invisible meaning.

It is a method of revealing or suggesting immaterial, ideals, or truths through a hidden statement or indirect literary usage.

For example, Jesus taught man that it is better to pluck out his eyes than to allow the eyes to take him to Hell.

This is a very important lesson, we are to control our eyes, our desires, our wants instead of letting the flesh dictate to our spirit being.

We say birds of a feather flock together, and we are not talking about birds at all, but we are talking about the value of choosing good friends and peer pressure.

Let me tell you a great truth, whether you get the answer to the prayeryou asked for, or the answer that you dreaded, God’s grace is still the

same.

Let us study some deep and beautiful symbolism of the Bible.

Pull up the Word of God, this is a wonderful lesson.

There is an expression, "I can feel something in the wind."

Proverbs 11:29 He that troubled his own house shall inherit the wind.

WIND:

*** a direction from which the wind may blow

*** a natural movement of the air of any velocity

*** an artificial movement of the air

*** a force or agency that carries along or influence

*** to detect or follow by a scent

*** to introduce stealthily

English is amazing --- the winds blows?

You wind a clock?

Pipe organs work by blowing a wind supply through different lengths of pipes.

John 3:8 The wind blows where it listeth, and thou hear the sound thereof, but canst not tell whence it comes, and whither it goes: so is everyone that is born of the Spirit.

WE NEED THE MIGHTY WIND OF GOD TO VENTILATE AND BRING

CHANGE.

Acts 2:1 And when the day of Pentecost was fully come, they were all with one accord in one place.

2 Suddenly there came a sound from heaven as of a rushing mighty wind, and it filled the house where they were sitting.

Remember when the Lord was not in the fire, the earthquake or the wind?

I Kings 19:11 -- 12.

I. THE EAST WIND REPRESENTS CHASTENING!

*** To correct by punishment, suffering

*** Discipline

*** To get rid of the excess

A. A family altar will alter the family!

B. PHARAOH HAD OF DREAM OF THE BLAST OF THE EAST WIND.

Genesis 41:23 And behold seven ears withered, thin and blasted with the East wind, sprung up after them.

Genesis 41:27 And the seven thin and ill favoured kine that came up after them are seven empty ears blasted with the East wind shall be seven years of famine.

C. Wisdom saves the seven years of plenty to yield to the seven years of famine... ALL BY THE EAST WIND.

D. JONAH WAS BLASTED BY THE EAST WIND FOR PREJUDICE,

UNFORGIVENESS, AND DISOBEDIENCE.

Jonah 4:8 And it came to pass, when the sun did arise, that God prepared a vehement east wind, and the sun did beat upon the head of Jonah that he fainted, and wished in himself to die, and said, IT IS BETTER FOR ME TO DIE THAN TO LIVE.
