The breath of God

The breath of God

Ezekiel 37:5,9,10.

The chapter under consideration was an interaction between the Lord and the prophet Ezekiel. He wanted to show the prophet and by extension, us about His ability to recreate, regenerate, renew, and wholly transform any dead or hopeless entity. Our Concentration today is the final process of His act toward these dead bones.

The sequence of events recorded in this text is reflective of the creation of man from the beginning of time. A medium was first created but the first sign of life was expressed after God breathed into this medium to become a living soul- Genesis 2:7 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. This applies to the spiritual as well, only the breath of God in us represents our living states. We may possess viable “bony structures” of good works, and “fleshy sinews” of morality, without the living breath of God for heart transformation and salvation, we would never be able to possess the true nature of God, which is eternal life. John 3:3 Jesus answered and said unto him, Verily, verily, I say unto thee, Except a man be born again, he cannot see the kingdom of God.

Furthermore, another dimension to the subject of the breath of God is in the infilling of the Holy Spirit. He is the bonafide and divinely acclaimed breath of God, and He remains the sole agent that infuses more of the life of God into believers. John 20:22 And when he had said this, he breathed on them, and saith unto them, Receive ye the Holy Ghost. We may possess “bony structures” of astute religious devotion, and “fleshly sinews” of scripture knowledge and principles, but without the breath of the Spirit of God upon these things, we would be devoid of the true revelation of God and the extant manifestation of the Son of God in our present generation.
