Let the Breath of God now Breathe on Me.
I was reminded of the old Hymn, Let it breathe on me, let it breathe on Me, Let the Breath of God now breathe on me.
In the beginning God created the world and all that is therein with words. He spoke and it was so. However when he created man God formed him from the dust of the earth, and to give him life; God breathed on him and he became a living soul.
When you speak, it’s through your breath that the words take form. Just imagine that: God speaking, His breath comes out, and there you have the Word of God, "Let there be light." That is where the Gospel of John says, "In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God." They are all separate, but at the same time, they are all one, just as when you breathe and you speak, your words can be one with you.
And so it is written, the first Adam was made a living soul. The last Adam was made a quickening - (life giving-) Spirit - I Corinthians 15:45.
For as the Father has life in Himself: so hath He given to the Son to have life in Himself - John 5:26.
The Bible tells us that God's word is breathed. 2 Timothy 3:16 All Scripture is (God breathed) given by inspiration of God and is profitable for teaching, for reproof, for correction, for training in righteousness; so that the man of God may be adequate, equipped for every good work.
The phrase “given by inspiration of God,” is one word in the Greek text. It is the word theopneustos, (theo news tos) which means “God-breathed.”
It has been awhile, but in times past, I have seen ministers blow or breathe on those who come forward for healing. As I think about it, could it be - -that God was using their breath to create the needed organ in their body. Also I have witnessed ministers blow or breathe on those desiring to receive the baptism of the Holy Spirit and God honored their breath.
Now understand, unless God tells you to blow on someone, it is probably not a good thing to do, but yes, if God says to do it then by all means obey God.
Mouth to mouth resuscitation is a form of breathing life into a person who has drowned, or seems dead.
There is a story about Elijah and a dead boy, the son of a widow woman, who befriended the prophet. 1 Kings 17:30-22 Then Elijah cried out to the LORD, “O LORD my God, have You also brought tragedy on this widow who has opened her home to me, by causing her son to die?” Then he stretched himself out over the child three times and cried out to the Lord, “O Lord my God, please let this boy's life return to him!” And the LORD listened to the voice of Elijah, and the child’s life returned to him, and he lived.…
Again we read in 2 Kings 4:32-34 about Elijah's protege, the prophet Elisha raising the Shunammite's Son. … When Elisha reached the house, there was the boy lying dead on his bed. So he went in, closed the door, and prayed to the Lord. Then Elisha got on the bed and lay on the boy, mouth to mouth, eye to eye, and hand to hand. As he stretched himself out over him, the boy’s body became warm.…and the prophet gave the boy to his mother.
In Hebrew the Spirit of God is named ruah, which means breath. Therefore the Holy Spirit, the breath of God, gives us life. During this time of crisis, during any crisis, we may find ourselves feeling panic. This is the time to gasp for the breath of God. The Holy Spirit who resides within is always available to sustain us.
Just as God breathed on Adam and gave him the breath of life, Jesus breathed on His disciples in John chapter 20:21-22 "'Peace be onto you! As the Father sent me, I also send you.' And when He had said this, He breathed on them and said, 'Receive the Holy Spirit'"
The Holy Spirit, the breath of God. When you get into that kind of analogy, you now understand better what the attributes are. God's holy Spirit is as close to you as your very breath. The Bible says, "In Him we live and move and have our being."
It is amazing but true that your words create the very atmosphere. This can be now, or in your home, or even at church. Faith filled words bring miracles. Words of doubt and unbelief will hinder the ministry of the Holy Spirit who desires to breathe life into God's children, Not only Eternal life in their spirit but life in their flesh, and life in their emotions and thoughts.
If you are in your secret place reading your Bible, and you pray and praise God with your voice, you might want to practice singing praise to our Lord. Doing this will usher in the very presence of God as He breathes upon you. Singing in the Spirit is when you allow your voice to utter words that are from your heavenly language. You will be amazed how quickly God will enter the place where you will practice giving a singing voice to words of praise unto our Lord.
May the very Breath-Of-God blow over YOU today as you sing praises to Our God.
Today as we prepare to pray over our City, our State and our Nation, we must understand that God desires to breathe his very eternal life into those who are spiritually walking in darkness. As we make our declarations claiming that our citizens will have spiritual hearing ears, and spiritual seeing eyes, and that they may realize and understand that God loves them, and his Holy Spirit is gently blowing upon them even now. Let the very breath of God now blow over our citizens bringing life where there is spiritual death. Amen
