THE BREATH OF LIFE
Then He said, “Go out, and stand on the mountain before the LORD.” And behold, the LORD passed by, and a great and strong wind tore into the mountains and broke the rocks in pieces before the LORD, but the LORD was not in the wind; and after the wind an earthquake, but the LORD was not in the earthquake; and after the earthquake a fire, but the LORD was not in the fire; and after the fire a still small voice. I Kings 19:11,12
The breath of life is the very breath of God, sometimes undetectable but nonetheless more powerful than mighty winds, earthquakes, and fire! A still small voice called a zephyr, defined as a whispering voice.
The breath of God created all life and everyone born on the planet receives His life giving breath. To know Him intimately one must be still and quiet before Him meditating on His word, seeking His face and confidently awaiting His presence. Many want to hear God's voice but are too busy or too loud to hear Him and they miss their greatest revelation from the very mind of God!
In the midst of this violent storm we call life, be still and know that He is God and He will come to you and speak that which your heart desires. God is our ever present help in time of trouble and will come when asked in faith to deliver us.
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 being. Genesis 2:7
RAISED FROM THE DEAD
As long as my breath is in me, And the breath of God in my nostrils, My lips will not speak wickedness, Nor my tongue utter deceit. Job 27:3,4
Jesus breathed on His disciples and they received His Spirit, He called Lazarus out of the grave and he received the breath of life. He raised many, healed many and set many free with the breath of His life!
The greatest miracle I have ever seen is when a young man overdosed and died in my home and we prayed and God restored life to him after being dead for 3-4 hours. Alive but in a coma they took him to the hospital where we had a prayer service. On the way to the service God told me to go to his room and blow the breath of life into him which I did and then proceeded to the service after which the doctor called and said they were going to pull life support, when they did his eyes popped open and he was totally healed! Praise God!
The breath of life restored him and he later joined the army, went to Iraq, came back and I married he and his fiancé and he now works in his dad's company and he and his wife have a son and brand new twin girls! Glory to God!
"The Spirit of God has made me, And the breath of the Almighty gives me life." Job 33:4
BAPTIZED IN HIS BREATH
And when He had said this, He breathed on them, and said to them, “Receive the Holy Spirit. John 20:22
The very building blocks of New Testament Christianity received the breath of life, living stones, who would construct His temple and fill it with new converts all baptized in His Holy Spirit!
Jesus told them to wait for His promise as He ascended to the throne of His Father to make intersession for them! They did and the breath of God came forth, baptizing them all, the entire company of them in the holy Spirit and with dynamite power! I cant stress enough the receiving of the baptism in the Holy Spirit enough for his disciples to be able to walk in His power and to have victory in their lives and power in their ministry!
One hundred sold-out disciples of Christ in total unity and of one accord waited on the wind to fall and it did, baptizing them with power from on high! This small band grew to 3000 in a matter of hours and absolutely turned the world upside down for the Lord Jesus Christ! We too can do the same thing if we would only receive His power and the breath of His life!
And suddenly there came a sound from heaven, as of a rushing mighty wind, and it filled the whole house where they were sitting. Then there appeared to them divided tongues, as of fire, and one sat upon each of them. And they were all filled with the Holy Spirit and began to speak with other tongues, as the Spirit gave them utterance. Acts 2:2-4
