Summary: The wind of God blows to undo all the works of the devil: Your healing, your deliverance, your miracle, your breakthrough is in the wind. (Let the Wind Blow)
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: 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)
Ex 14:21 & Ex 15:10
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.
Ex 10:13 & Ex 10:19
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.
I’m talking to somebody here tonight who needs a change, you need the power of God, the wind of God to blow through your life right now and bring a change.
Touch your neighbor and tell them (it’s Changing) it’s changing, I 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 it’s changing. I got a witness in my spirit that change is on the way, I feel the wind shifting.
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 blowing in this house right now.
Lift your hands right now and tell God: Let the wind blow
When the wind blows everything changes:
When Elijah was hiding out in a cave fearful 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 (1 Kings 19:11)
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 summers night.
This wind ripped the mountains apart and broke the boulders in pieces = burst, crush, destroy, (pulverize)
In other words, after this wind passed by the mountains were gone (destroyed, pulverized) there was no evidence left that they had ever existed.
I prophesy to you right now: The wind of God is getting ready to blow through your life tonight and it’s going to not only destroy your problem, but when God gets through moving there will be no evidence that a problem ever existed.
When Elijah was hiding out in a cave, fearful that Jezebel would take his life.
1Ki 19:1 The bible says: The Lord passed by his cave, and when he did there was a wind, and an earthquake, and a fire:
(The Lord caused it all)
I want to focus your attention tonight on this wind
It was not a soft gentle wind of a warm summers night.
This wind ripped the mountains apart and broke the boulders in pieces (burst, crush, destroy, another word would be (pulverize).
In other words, after this wind passed by the mountains were gone. (they were pulverized, they were demolished.)
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 pulverizing rock smashing wind to blow through our lives.
There’s some people listening to me right now and you’ve got some mountain sized problems that look impossible and immovable.
