The Lord’s Breath

A voice says, “Cry out!” Another asks, “What should I cry out?” The first voice responds: “All people are like grass, and all their promises are like the flowers in the field. 7 The grass dries up, the flowers wither, when the wind sent by the Lord blows on them. Surely humanity is like grass. 8 The grass dries up, the flowers wither, but the decree of our God is forever reliable.”
Isaiah 40:6-8

“The word of our God stands forever” – always the closing statement at the end of the scripture reading by a certain pastor.

While true, what a shock to see the context!

God’s breath brings judgement and death onto all the pretty false pleasures which we humans desire and pursue.

God breathes death onto all that is false.

BUT God’s breath breathes life into Adam.

God’s WORD – LOGOS -CHRIST  stands forever and gives us ETERNAL LIFE.

Pursue HIM!
