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.
- Genesis 2:7
The breath of life is the life of God. It is the Zoe life of God. Just like man cannot live without blood so also man cannot live in God without the Zoe life of God.
It was the same breath that created every organ, tissue, cell and system in mankind. God had created man`s body and man was just like a statue but as soon has he breathed his life into him he became alive. His human spirit was formed, his blood was created and every other thing necessary for man to be alive was formed by the breath. I believe it was the breath of life that created our natural breath which is oxygen. We breath in oxygen and it is very necessary for the life of man. It was created by God. Many people could think that oxygen is the breath of life but it isnt. Some also had thought that the spirit in man is the Spirit of God. but the truth is that man has his own human spirit that God had created in him. He is different from the Holy Spirit. When the bible said that Godís spirit in man would return to him after the man`s death, it wasn`t talking of the Holy Spirit or his human spirit. It was talking of the natural breath God put in man not the zoe kind of life.
In the beginning, oxygen was very pure. It was 100% pure and mankind was very healthy. They lived long and attained maximum height before they died. Many of them were giants. Today, through medical science you can conduct an experiment with pure oxygen and feel what it feels like in you. If you take pure oxygen, you would feel lively and very healthy. More healthy than you are right now. It heals and regenerates some human conditions. Imagine, how much more the zoe life of God would do to you if natural oxygen can do that to a man.
Sin came in through a man, the first Adam and God planned a restoration plan for man and brought Righteousness & Redemption back through another man, Jesus Christ, the last Adam. Through him we can receive the breath of life, the zoe kind of life the first man had lost due to sin.
How would you like to receive a fresh baptism of the Holy Spirit and experience the fresh breath of God. Ask him to fill you right now. He would. When you worship, open yourself up to him and you would at times feel the loving and gentle breeze of the Holy Spirit blow towards you. Itís cool and refreshing you know. I pray that you experience the breath of God like never before. He makes us to prophesy, receive inspiration and to do many wonderful things in his name.
Father, fill me with your Holy Spirit. Stir within me the life of God and cause me to experience an overflow of your love and presence. Let your river flow Lord, let your refreshing wind blow towards me. Breath on me Lord in Jesus name I pray. (Amen)
If you died today, are you absolutely certain that you would go to heaven? You can be! TRUST JESUS NOW
