Going to church, reading the bible, listening to Christian music will not advance your spiritual life. These activities may give you more understanding but until you are ready to lay down your life and take up your cross this leads nowhere.

What I am talking about is the sacrifice of self to advance the cause of Jesus Christ in the world. There is a destiny that God had for each of us that only we can personally discover. We can discover it only by detaching from the world and making ourselves available for the Holy Spirit. By detaching from the world--now you have time--the commodity that most Christians are not willing to give.

Jesus said, "Self-help is not help at all. Self-sacrifice is the way, to finding yourself, your true self. (Matthew 16:25)

"God has planted eternity in the human heart." (Ecclesiastes 3:11)

"Anyone who lets himself be distracted from the work I plan for him is not fit for the Kingdom of God." (Luke 9:62)

"The most important thing is that I complete my mission, the work that the Lord Jesus gave me." (Acts 20:24)

"We have been sent to speak for Christ." (2 Corinthians 5:20)

"We are God's workmanship, created in Christ Jesus, to do good works, which God prepared in advance for us to do." (Ephesians 2:10)

Releasing The Breath Of God

Posted 12-13-2023 at 09:22 AM by Albert Finch

Biblically, a whirlwind represents or displays the power and might of God. In Nahum 1:3 it declares, "...He displays His power in the whirlwind and the storm..." In Acts 2, we also see the wind of God released in the Upper Room that displayed His power and filled the people of God with the Holy Spirit.

The Voice of God

Throughout the Bible, God would speak through a whirlwind. In Job 38:1 it says, "Then the Lord answered Job from the whirlwind." We also see this in the story of Elijah when he ran in fear from Jezebel. In 1 Kings 19:11 (NLT), it says, "'Go out and stand before Me on the mountain,' the Lord told him. And as Elijah stood there, the Lord passed by, and a mighty windstorm hit the mountain. It was such a terrible blast that the rocks were torn loose, but the Lord was not in the wind..."

From these two scriptures, we can denote that God could speak to His people from the wind. This was a thing that both Elijah and Job had experienced. The whirlwind was and is another cloud of darkness He hides Himself in (Psalm 18:11).

The Life of God

The winds of God release the life of God because they carry the ruach breath of God. In Ezekiel 37:9-10 (NLT) it says, "Then He said to me, 'Speak a prophetic message to the winds, son of man. Speak a prophetic message and say, "This is what the Sovereign Lord says: Come, O breath, from the four winds! Breathe into these dead bodies so they may live again."' So I spoke the message as He commanded me, and breath came into their bodies. They all came to life and stood up on their feet—a great army."

If you find yourself in a dry and dead place, begin to prophesy and release the wind (breath) of God into your situation, and watch God bring new life into you and what's around you—resurrection life!

Whirlwinds shift our minds and release new wineskins. Allow the wind of God to take you where He wants to take you.
