The Wind of the Spirit
Acts 2:2 And suddenly there came a sound from heaven as of a rushing mighty wind, and it filled all the house where they were sitting.
It was the wind from the breath of God that made Adam a living soul after the clay was formed and fashioned by the hand of God.
God caused a wind to blow over the Earth after the flood of Noah that assuaged the waters and a new world stood washed from its evil past.
God caused the wind to blow from the east that brought in the plague of locusts against Pharaoh. God caused another wind from the opposite direction to blow the same locusts back to the sea.
The Lord caused the sea to go back by a strong east wind all that night, and made the sea dry land, and the waters were divided for Israel to make a final exit out of Egypt.
Exodus 15:10 Thou didst blow with thy wind, the sea covered them: they sank as lead in the mighty waters.
The same wind that delivered Israel destroyed the armies of Egypt.
When the wind of the Holy Spirit blows, how does it affect you? Am I spiritual enough to understand why the wind blows or even discern when the wind of God is blowing?
The carnal man will always get busy and very uneasy at this time. He wants to take charge and tries to control, thinking his help will cause the wind to cease. I have learned that when the wind of God blows, we hold still and see the salvation of the Lord do its work.
It was the wind from the Lord that brought the quail from the sea to feed the millions in an unproductive desert.
David says, He rides upon the wings of the wind. Elijah witnessed the three extreme demonstrations of wind before he could hear the still small voice of God.
It was Ezekiel that prophesied to the four winds concerning the valley full of dry bones. The wind blew and the bones connected and there was a huge army that arose to their feet, filled with the life power of the Spirit!
It was in the upper room of unity of the Spirit that the Holy Spirit came with the sound from heaven, which was mighty and rushing and it filled the house and all the people with heavenly power!
This sound of heaven is the same sound that powered the New Covenant Church. It is the power of the true bride of Jesus!
The power of the bride of Christ is not run by strategies or formulas that make busy the activity-craving soul of the day. The wind of the Holy Spirit is not repaired nor can it ever be replaced. It is a sovereign move that God blesses His surrendered people with.
When the wind came in the upper room, they were sitting. They were resigned, longing for the promise of God. They were not demanding nor were they planning how this will be. They were waiting.
I have always found that the blowing of the wind tangles with anything that can be tossed about. A lot of dry dust irritates the eye. When the darkening clouds of despair become highly visible and give a look of danger to the common eye, it is here that we can expect a sudden cleansing in the hearts of the true seekers.
It is here that the Passover of the blood of Jesus will do his work in full array. The Passover has to fully come before a sound from Heaven rushes and fills the room.
I notice Four Specific Things in particular before the sound from heaven filled the room:
1. The day of Passover had fully come.
2. They were all gathered in one accord.
3. They were all in one place.
4. They were all waiting for the promise of the Father.
It is here that the sound of Heaven occurs and with great expectation of an outpouring of the Holy Spirit! May I ask you to consider the wind that is whirling around your life at present?
What do you discern it to be? May God open the eyes of understanding so that we do not focus on circumstances that look beyond hope.
Let us never forget how it was before that great heavenly visitation of the Holy Spirit. There are still many who need baptized with the Holy Spirit.
May this renew our vision to see as God sees.
