Summary: The wind speaks of Gods Power and it speaks of change:
The Wind Is Blowing Again
All through the Bible we are given symbols of the Holy Spirit: through these symbols we learn who the Holy Spirit is and how he manifests himself and inter-acts with his people.
(Fire) (Oil) (Water) (Dove) (Wind)
Fire: Purifying, Illuminating, searching
Oil: Healing, comforting, consecrating
Water: Cleansing, life giving
Dove: Gentle, peaceful, comforting, guiding, warning
And finally the Wind
I don’t really have time to talk about the wind but if I did I would bring to your attention:
* It was the wind that opened the red sea, (it was the wind that closed it again)
* The wind opened the way for their escape, and the wind moved the waters to return and close upon and destroy their enemies.
* It was the wind that dried up the flood waters from the earth after it had rained for 40 days and 40 nights
* It was the wind that brought the plague of locusts upon the Egyptians, and it was the wind that took them away.
* It was a wind from the Lord that brought quail to the complaining Israelites
* It was the wind that brought the rain that ended a 31/2-year drought in Israel.
*The wind speaks of Gods Power and it speaks of change:
When the wind of God blows it brings change.
Somebody here today who needs a change, you need the power of God, the wind of God to blow through your life.
You can’t see it I can’t touch it, but it’s changing,
I don’t know how God’s going to do it but its changing.
Eze 37:9 Then said he unto me, Prophesy unto the wind, prophesy, son of man, and say to the wind, Thus saith the Lord GOD; Come from the four winds, O breath, and breathe upon these slain, that they may live.
It was not the fire in the valley that day, and it was not the oil, and it was not the water, and it was not the dove that brought restoration and resurrection to a valley of dry bones
*(But is was the Wind of God, the Wind of Heaven, the Power of God, the Breath of God)
Sometimes we need the fire, and sometimes we need the oil, and sometimes we need the water, and sometimes we need the dove.
(But when you need a change, when you need a resurrection, when you need the Power of God to come into your life and quicken and raise up something in your life that has died or is dying (You need the wind of God to blow)
That same power, that same anointing, that same wind that blew through that valley of dry bones is ready to blow in this house right now.
Lift your hands right now and tell God: Let the wind blow
What if I do not have enough Faith to see change.
Romans 3:3. For what if some did not believe? Will their unbelief make the faithfulness of God without effect?
Gods faithfulness, is not based on our faithfulness, or on the faithfulness of those who are around us.
No matter what, He remains faithful
2 Timothy 2:13. If we are faithless, He remains faithful; He cannot deny Himself.
We should never let other people’s opinions, no matter who they are, carry more weight, than what God has already provided for, paid for and promised to us!
What other people think usually just waters down and tends to kill your dreams anyways!
Just because they don’t believe in you, should not affect what you believe anyways,
1Ki 19:11 And he said, Go forth, and stand upon the mount before the LORD. And, behold, the LORD passed by, and a great and strong wind rent the mountains, and brake in pieces the rocks before the LORD;:
When the wind blows things change:
When Elijah was hiding out in a cave afraid that Jezebel would take his life, the bible says that the Lord passed by is cave, and when he did there was a Wind, and earthquake and a fire
The Lord caused it all: I want to focus for a minute on the wind that blew that day. It was not a soft gentle breeze of a warm summer’s night.
* This wind ripped the mountains apart and broke the boulders in pieces.
After this wind passed by the mountains was gone
The wind of God is getting ready to blow through your life today and it’s going to not only destroy your problem, but when God gets through moving there will be no evidence that a problem was ever there.
We all thank God for the soft gentle breezes of his love for us.
But sometimes we need more than just a gentle breeze, sometimes we need a mountain rock smashing wind to blow through our lives.
