Could it be the Air in Prayer? May 2011
I have a hypothesis that I am not ready to reveal at this time, yet this article is a trial balloon to ‘test the spirits’ as it were, (1 John 4:1) to see if the Ruach (Holy Spirit) is working with some of you on this topic. Thus I’m looking for the independent confirmation of 2 or 3 witnesses to establish Truth (Num. 35:30, Deu 17:6-7, Deu 19:15, Mat 18:16) (Side note: Ever wonder why Jesus was always quoting Deuteronomy? End of side note, back to article.)
Ever wonder why your/our prayers are not being answered? And I don’t mean the prayer of Jabez, ‘Gimme gimme gimme, my name is Jimmy’. I’m talking about the ‘this one comes out by prayer and fasting’ kind of prayer. The prayer which kicks down the gates of hell to set another captive free kind of prayer, (Matt 16 18-19). The kind of prayer that unbinds The Fathers Hands, and unbinds us because we just might have the keys to do it. Go back and slowly Matt 16:19!
I’ve been listening to Brad Scott’s teaching, “As the Days of a Tree…” which I recommend (www.wildbranch.org). As we grow in our ‘unlearning’ and are being recalibrated and cleansed from the bad seeds of dogma, doctrine, and lotsa of other garbage that have been sown into the soils of our soul, and get a glimpse of a Tree as being ‘an object lesson’ ‘power-point’, ‘illustrated sermon’ from Dad what do we see the most on a tree? Leaves! Now I know that we have a tendency to maybe want to be one who is a ‘Branch Teacher’ or a ‘Trunk Teacher’ and even some of us have been tantalized with the ‘Sod’ level, the roots which we cannot see, the really deep stuff. The deep mysterious level is a very dangerous place to be for one who is not prepared.
Would you agree with me, that we all have some inflated view of ourselves whereby, we’ll think we’re passed that ‘leaf level’ and need to move on to the more important stuff. When in fact, it’s the leaves that The Father pushes in our face every where we turn, like saying, get this! I’ll let you know when you ready to move to the twig level. Fuggetabout the deep stuff! (Godley Amplified Version of How The Father talks). Joh 16:12 "I still have many things to say to you, but you cannot bear them now. “ So would you agree that sometime the most obvious things we need to learn quite possibly are right there in front of our face, and yet we don’t see it?
Maybe this is a hint to one of the missing ingredients in your personal and all of us as a ‘body’s
prayer life. That there is something so fundamental that we’ve never thought of that’s been right
there the whole time. Let me, reiterate, I cannot say unequivocally that I have this key, I am in
the process of digging more into it. Based upon The Word of Yah. From The Beginning. Please
get me feedback as well from your prayer life and study time. Let’s face it, most of us are in the
searching and digging . Yahshua saith unto them, “Have ye understood all these things? They
say unto him, Yea, Master. Mat 13:52 Then said he unto them, Therefore every scribe which is
instructed unto the kingdom of heaven is like unto a man that is an householder, which brings
forth out of his treasure things new and old. Brad Scott recently said, ‘I want you all to become
old men on the beach with metal detectors, looking for gems in beach of The Scriptures. Doesn’t
that excite you.? ‘It is the glory of Elohim to conceal a matter but the glory of Kings to search out a matter.’ (Proverbs 25:1)
So allow me to drop some nuggets I’ve found recently. I don’t have enough to make a ‘graceful wreathe on my head or a chain around my neck. (Proverbs 1:9) Another note, if you haven’t put into your tool box for digging, a copy of E-Sword, that is complete with the Hebrew translations and paleo translations, please do so. It will open up your understanding immensely. Rico makes them free and I know E-sword is a free download, yet Rico has put so much more on his program, you really need to see the original words and it’s concrete meanings.
When the disciples asked The Master, ‘Lord teach us to pray’, it wasn’t like they didn’t know how to pray. They never heard of prayer before. They ALL knew about prayer. Yet, they asked ‘Jesus’ teach us to pray. Obviously He was either doing something different or saying something different from the norm, they hadn’t seen or heard before.
What did Jesus say? Our Father who are in heaven. Have you have looked up the word heaven in the Hebrew? It’s the word ‘shamayim’, in the ancient Hebrew is this: The wind, or breath, of someone or something is its character. We have all heard this one, ‘Let everything that has breath, praise the Lord.’ (Psalm150). What is the first gift The Creator imparted to man?
Gen 2:7 And Yahweh Elohim formed man of the dust of the ground, and breathed into his
nostrils the breath of life; and man became a living soul.
What is it that you need the most? Food? You can live without food for a while. Water? Same. House? Wal-Mart? Internet? Try not breathing for just 60 seconds.
Remember, all things were created in the beginning, and the pattern of creation is like kind produces like kind, with the seed being in the fruit and the fruit creating the same seed so it will create more of the same fruit. Apple trees come from apple seeds, they don’t evolve from anything. Organges produce orange seeds which produce more oranges. And didn’t Paul tell us 1st the natural then the spiritual? (I Cor 15) So the pattern is the same.
The very fact that I breathe means that, that Breath of Life originally breathed in to Adam in Genesis 2 is still going! I don’t read where Our Father had to take a 2nd breath or inhaled again and again. If we are to offer up our first fruits to Him as gratitude, is it possible that we are not offering up our Breathing as we pray? I’ve heard it said in my past, control your breathing and you’ll control your life. What happened when you get excited or angry or emotional, we move into what’s called high breathing, gasps.
Have you ever looked up the word, spirit in Hebrew? Ruach, you see it’s wind, breath. Winds that follow a prescribed path each season. One who follows a prescribed path to arrive at a specific destination? Hmmmm? Now do a word search on Spirit in your proverbs and you see all sorts of things, Pro 18:14 The spirit of a man will sustain his infirmity; but a wounded spirit who can bear? Pro 25:28 He that hath no rule over his own spirit is like a city that is broken down, and without walls. Pro 1:23 Turn you at my reproof: behold, I will pour out my spirit unto you, I will make known my words unto you. Pro 15:4 A wholesome tongue is a tree of life: but perverseness therein is a breach in the spirit. Just to name a few. Remember when the sons of Thunder wanted to nuke Samaria because they didn’t want to receive Yahshua? (kind of like all of us when we came out and wanted to toast the church), what did The Master say? Ahhh, Rick, James, John and all of y’all, you don’t know what manner of spirit your of. (Luke 9)
I have to wrap up this month’s article, but watch your breath in the next month. Why did Jesus breath on them? Joh 20:22 And when he had said this, he breathed on them, and saith unto them, Receive ye the Holy Spirit: and it wasn’t even the 2nd chapter of Acts yet? How does that happen?
Remember as the deer what? Pants! For the water brooks, so my soul pants for you Oh Yah! I’d say that’s intense breathing. Read Psalm 119: 108, 131.
Let me close with this: Psa 5:1 A Psalm of David. Give ear to my words, O Yahweh, consider my meditation. Hearken unto the voice of my cry, my King, and my Elohim: for unto thee will I pray. My voice shalt thou hear in the morning, O Yahweh; in the morning will I direct my prayer unto thee, and will look up.
So watch your breathing in the coming days. You think you own them? I got more information that just may be a key into our prayer lives! A hint, there is a language on earth that has been preserved for thousands of years and it has amazingly resemblances to Hebrew. This language has been undefiled and unpolluted and thus it may have some keys for us!
