My Dreams and Visions

Dreams and Visions

We Gave Birth To Wind

As I was driving today, I saw a vision of a mouth and hands. The hand had a paper bag, much like the lunch bags you see people carrying their lunches in. I watched the hand put the bag to the mouth and then I saw the paper bag being inflated by the breath being blown into it. After there was no more air that could be blown into the bag, the hand twisted the bag and popped the bag with the other hand. This is something I have done as well as seen many others do. That part of the vision was not a big deal.

As I began to inquire of the Lord about the vision, I was led to the following verse from Isaiah. We were pregnant; we writhed with labor pains only to give birth to the wind. We weren’t able to bring salvation to the land, and no new people were born on earth.
(Isa 26:18)

Upon looking up this verse I found that the word for wind is “ruach”. I have seen this many times when referring to the Spirit of God. However, here it means wind in the sense of nothing. While looking at this I saw that there was another reference found in Ecclesiastes.

But when I turned to look at all that I had accomplished and all the hard work I had put into it, I saw that it was all pointless. It was like trying to catch the wind. I gained nothing from any of my accomplishments under the sun.
(Ecc 2:11)

The popping of a bag would attract some attention because of the noise that the bag made when it popped. Afterwards, there is no substance, no fruit, just wind that is unseen.

My feeling at this point is that this vision has to do with trying to bring about revival by human means and not by the Spirit’s means. The bag popping would attract attention, however, because that is all it did the attention would soon be focused elsewhere because there was no substance, only wind. The first revival of the New Testament began in a manger with no fanfare. And the ones informed about the arrival of the Son of God were not the rulers but some simple shepherds tending sheep.

    Hi Tony,

    Or could it mean that the Lord breathed into his creation life and sent His son, and then the Holy Spirit, and it has all blown up into nothing, His work is about to end. But the Holy Spirit still is trying to reach us. It could mean also that it is all about to come to the end, with a big event, and then all of His is taken and nothing is left but the unrighteous. What do you think about this? Sincerely, Marsha

  3. I agree with the “man’s effort’ that gave birth to ‘nothing’. We see it almost everytime there is usually some big church event. People put a lot of a show that even gets people talking, but give it few weeks- people will hardly even remember what the even was about or what they benefited. The Church is in need of something solid that has the potential to be felt even after years. Genuine revivals.

  4. We need to guard and preserve revivals. Or have people who carries what they’ve experienced to others

  5. A thought-provoking one Tony, and the elaboration/commentary seems spot on!

    If perhaps not specifically on ‘revivals’ it lines up with many other people who say church needs to be ‘outside the walls’. More people are transformed in the vicinity of places where the Lord turns up and His tangible Presence remains – or else where we carry Him outside and minister to society because we’re In Him.
