BREATH OF GOD, WORTH CONSIDERING 7/20/20, From Ken<><
| Today’s Scripture (In my mailbox today from Texas.)|
|“…Then he said to me, “Prophesy over these bones, and say to them, O dry bones, hear the word of the LORD. Thus says the Lord GOD to these bones: Behold I will cause breath to enter you, and you shall live…” (Ezekiel 37:4–5, ESV)|
Ezekiel saw a vision of a valley filled with bones. It was like a huge graveyard of bones from people who had died. Bones represent things in our life that look dead, situations that seem impossible and permanently unchanging. God said, “Prophesy to these dead bones.” Ezekiel started speaking to the bones, telling them to come alive. As he was speaking, the bones started rattling and coming together, morphing back into people. Finally, breath came into those bodies, and they stood up like “a vast army.” You may have things in your life that seem dead—a relationship, a business, your health. All you can see is a valley of dry bones, so to speak. It’s not enough to just pray about it; you need to speak to it. Prophesy to those dead bones. Call in health. Call in abundance. Call in restoration. God will resurrect what looks dead. He’ll make things happen that you could never make happen.
A Prayer for Today
“Father, thank You that I can speak to the things in my life that seem dead, and You will breathe life into them and bring resurrection. I believe that as I speak words of faith, You will make things happen that I could never make happen. In Jesus’ Name, A Today’s
“…Then he said to me, “Prophesy over these bones, and say to them, O dry bones, hear the word of the LORD. Thus says the Lord GOD to these bones: Behold I will cause breath to enter you, and you shall live…” (Ezekiel 37:4–5, ESV) (For me this is a prophesy concerning Jesus and Us as well as the O.T. saints. After 3 days the body of Jesus was called forth like Lazareth and eventually you and I if we are immersed and saturated in Christ Jesus. Wow!!! Just remembering some of the other times in scripture where “Breath” is mentioned. Over 87 times in the Holy Bible. The oldest scriptures that we have with us: Job 33:3-4: “My words will express the uprightness of my heart, And my lips will speak what they know with utter sincerity. 4. “The Spirit of God has made me, And the breath of [a] the Almighty gives me life [which inspires me]. Of course from the beginning time line we find man in the process of being created from the dust of the earth and becoming a “Living” soul by the Breath of God, Gen.2:7. But through pride, rebellion and disobedience Adam’s soul died exactly as he was warned in Gen.2:17. And all us after Adam were born spiritually dead and some of you who are reading this right now are still spiritually dead, lacking the breath of God in your life. The first thing that Christ Jesus did, in HIS resurrection, was to breath on HIS disciples and restore the Breath of God which had been lost in the fall of man in Adam, John 20:22. So God also made an option for us on how to become in the Image and Likeness of GOD, which was the original vision. For 4,000 man had faith in an animal sacrifice for the forgiveness of sins, as did Able,. And in the resurrection of Christ Jesus the sacrifice has already been made, Isa 53. Now we look back 2,000 years for when sacrifice was made. And now the Holy Spirit who has the anointing of life can move back into our clay houses and became eternal life itself in and with us and also help up clean house. Jesus taught on this in John 3. It was eight days later, after the 10 desciples, that Thomas became a Christian when he confessed, “My LORD and my GOD” John 20:28. In verse 20:31 John writes: But these are written, that you might believe that Jesus is the Christ, the Son of God: and that believing ye might have life through HIS name.
It is interesting that the little word believe is much stronger in the Greek than in the English. In the Greek of the New Testament believe means to be like trusting to a chair. “To trust in, rely upon and cling to.” I am sitting in a desk chair at this moment. And I totally trust it. I have set in it for hundreds of hours now for many years in writing to you. If it went down, I would go with it. No doubt at all that I would be on the floor. The word in the Greek in the above scripture of John 20:31 has the same kind of meaning. That if you are really a Christian you are totally trusting yourself to Christ Jesus as you would a chair. You are searching the scriptures to find out what HE would like you to help with in HIS Kingdom. Some of the first words in the prayer that he gave us as an outline were, “Thy Kingdom Come, Thy will be done on earth as in heaven. We tend to seek to build our little kingdoms and then try to make HIM responsibile ? That really won’t fly at all as it does not have the Breath of God under the wings. The word Pneuma in the Greek was translated Holy Spirit which literally means: breath, wind, to blow, breathe.
In Hawaii the word Aloha means to give breath. Alo= give, Ha + breath. They called the whalers and traders “Haole” which means, breath-less or no-breath. It was a very accurate definition. I wonder how many of you, from God’s point of view are haole and yet without the breath of God? That you are still a child of Adam in this world of stuff? You were created to enjoy serving God and to help build the Kingdom of Jesus.
Yours, in HIS great love and wonderful grace and mercy, Ken<>< www.Trinity-Aloha.org

California beach revival attended by 1,000: ‘The church has left the building’
Days before California churches closed due to a surge in coronavirus cases, there was a massive evangelical Christian gathering on Huntington Beach near Los Angeles. The International Society for Civil Liberties and Rule of Law (Intersociety) human rights group has said the murder of Christians in Nigeria has reached “genocidal” levels, Christian Today reports. According to Intersociety, more than 1,200 Nigerian Christians were murdered by Muslim Fulani and Islamist militants in the first half of 2020 alone. The Qur’an instructs followers of Islam to eradicate Christians in over 100 verses.
And all who love, honor and obey HIM are HIS everlasting family.
