I can’t breathe

Here is something I read on Facebook.

I can’t breathe

by Jeannene Rutherford

(Original by Martin Towne)
What a breathtaking few months this has been… Some caught the virus, “I can’t breathe;” Most were ordered to stay cooped up at home, “I can’t breathe;” Many were compelled to wear a mask, “I can’t breathe;” a few were restrained by chokeholds, “I can’t breathe;” Some were tear-gassed and smoke bombed, “I can’t breathe;” and the list goes on… It doesn’t take a rocket surgeon to figure out that the attack is on the breath.

Little wonder there, as much that happens in the natural realm is only a sign of what is actually happening in the spiritual realm. Makes even more sense when you consider the following:

1). How God breathed the breath of life into man in Genesis 2:7
2). How Jesus breathed on his disciples to receive the Holy Spirit in John 20:22
3). That the Hebrew word, “ruach,” which is most often rendered “spirit” in the Old Testament, literally translates as “wind, or breath”
4). That the Greek word, “pneuma,” which is most often rendered “spirit” in the New Testament, also literally translates as “wind, or breath”

In the natural, the attack is on the breath; but in the supernatural, the attack is on The Spirit; and there is an attempt to place a chokehold on both.

All the king’s horses, and all the king’s men, together with all the wisdom of man all come to naught here, as nothing will ever change until the heart of man changes, and that is only possible by The Spirit of God (Zechariah 4:6).

Go ahead, knock yourselves out: protest all you want, enact all kinds of legislation, and even defund the police, if you will (oh what a brilliant solution that is…); things will only remain the same—or get worse, unless the heart of man changes, and that is only possible by The Spirit of God (Zechariah 4:6).

We are desperate, we are breathless, we are suffocating, and we can’t breathe! Won’t you please breathe upon us, O God, we need Your Spirit now more than ever before…

We are Your tired, Your poor, Your huddled masses yearning to breathe free…

Won’t You please breathe on us again?
