BREATH OF LIFE





Active spoken words set apart for a purpose.



In scripture, the Hebrew word "RUACH" is related to the movement of air, unseen things and the breath that comes from the mouth when speaking.





21 Then Jesus said to them again, “Peace to you; as the Father has sent Me, I also send you [as My representatives].” 22 And when He said this, He breathed on them and said to them, “Receive the Holy Spirit". (John 20 AMP)


In John 20: 21-22, Jesus was imparting to His disciples "RUACH HA KO'DESH" - the Holy Spirit. The Hebrew word for spirit is "RUACH" (pronounced roo-ach); HA is "the", KO'DESH means set apart, separate, sacred holy.


RUACH means breath, the breath of life, wind, spirit. This is the same RUACH - breath of life, spirit - that God breathed into Adam's nostrils and " the man became a living being [an individual complete in body and spirit]" (Gen. 2:7 AMP).


Delving deeper into these words and using the ancient Hebrew paleo pictograms, Ruach Ha Ko'desh is the "one who intends to join us to clear boundaries that allows us to be set apart and invited through a doorway into a place where God will identify Himself to us" [from Living Word Discovery in 3D]. It can also mean active spoken words that are set apart for a purpose.


In scripture, ruach is related to the movement of air, unseen things and the breath that comes from the mouth when speaking. It is God's creative words in action.


Psalm 33

6 By the word of the Lord were the heavens made, And all their host by the breath of His mouth. 9 For He spoke, and it was done; He commanded, and it stood fast..


John 3

7 Do not be surprised that I have told you, ‘You must be born again [reborn from above—spiritually transformed, renewed, sanctified].’ 8 The wind blows where it wishes and you hear its sound, but you do not know where it is coming from and where it is going; so it is with everyone who is born of the Spirit."


"God's breath, His creative power, His Holy Ruach is responsible for all that is created: the universe, the earth, and even the spirit of man. Even more amazing, the "new man" that is created when a person trusts in Christ for salvation, is also a creation of the Holy Spirit, because it is "born" of God's Ruach. " [from CompellingTruth.org].


For the believer, God's breath of life is evident when we act, decide, choose to follow His Word (God-breathed scripture) and follow the Holy Spirit who leads us in all truth and righteousness by way of clear boundaries so as to live set apart for the Lord's purposes.


Let everything that has breath and every breath of life praise the Lord! Praise the Lord! (Hallelujah!) - Psalm 150:6 AMP
