Summary: One of the many symbols for the Holy Spirit is the WIND. It is a powerful symbol that we need to recognize and accept. Without Him, we will be spiritually poor, by our own choosing. Let the wind blow and be blessed.

Wind Power or Wind Poor

Man has only begun to take advantage of the wind. Giant windmills are being built in drafty locations to convert the breeze into energy to light and heat homes and businesses.

PNEUMATOLOGY

A symbol of the Holy Ghost

There are other symbols that tell us a great deal about the Holy Spirit:

Fire--to purify and illuminate

Water--to cleanse; to sustain life

Oil--for healing, consecration, comforting, and anointing

Dove--gentle, peaceful, guiding

Gen. 2:7

7 And the LORD God formed man of the dust of the ground, and breathed into his nostrils the breath of life; and man became a living soul. (KJV)

7 Formó, pues, Jehová Dios al hombre del polvo de la tierra, y sopló en su nariz aliento de vida; y fue el hombre un alma viviente. (RVG04)

"breathed" = a blast of wind; divine inspiration

Ezek. 37:5,9

5 Thus saith the Lord GOD unto these bones; Behold, I will cause breath to enter into you, and ye shall live: (KJV)

5 Así dice Jehová el Señor a estos huesos: He aquí, yo hago entrar espíritu en vosotros, y viviréis. (RVG04)

"breath" = a violent exhaling

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. {wind: or, breath} (KJV)

9 Y me dijo: Profetiza al espíritu, profetiza, hijo de hombre, y di al espíritu: Así dice Jehová el Señor: Espíritu, ven de los cuatro vientos, y sopla sobre estos muertos, y vivirán. (RVG04)

The wind opened and returned the Red Sea--Exo. 14:21 & 15:10

The wind controlled the plague of the locusts upon the Egyptians--Exo. 10:13 & 10:19

The wind dried up the flood waters from the earth so it could be inhabited once again--Gen. 8:1

The wind brought the quail to the complaining Israelites--Nu. 11:31

The wind speaks of the Power of God and it speaks of CHANGE. When God, by the Holy Ghost breathes/blows, something is going to change.

The Holy Ghost in the wind was brought life to that valley of old dry bones in the prophecy of Ezekiel.

When Elijah was hiding in the cave, hiding from Jezebel, there was a wind, a fire, and an earthquake. God sent them all. The wind He sent was not just a gentle breeze. It was something to reckoned with.

The Holy Spirit is Soveriegn. You cannot and you will not govern Him. Such is the wind. There is no way to capture it or control it, conquer it, or command it to do what you want. The only One who was able to do that is Christ. When He said "Peace be still", the winds immediately calmed down.

The wind can be highly unpredictable. One minute it may be still, the next it is moving swiftly. It may blow from one direction then suddenly change to the opposite direction.

It cannot be seen, but there is great evidence upon everything it moves upon.

But, remember, the Holy Ghost is a gentleman. He will only blow into your life in the form of a blessing, as you are open to Him and allow Him access. Now, He will blow in like a whirlwind, with judgment, upon all those who would make light of Him.
