"The Breath of God." About a sermon by Pastor Chad.
Worship Saturday 27 Jul. 2013-07-28
The central cult Saturday was ministered by pastor Chad and translation & assistance of Pastor Meny  Escobar.



A. Introduction

Pastor Chad began his lecture by stating that:


1. "When hearts are hungry for God, the Presence of the Lord descends with Power"
Jesus himself called his disciples and the people to be vigilant (to "see" and hear ") what God says [1], therefore our attitude in worship are crucial for us: If we are in a waiting position attentive to what God will do and say through the Minister, no doubt receive a blessing during the ministry.

The recommendation of the Master is indicating that the will of the Lord is always touching the congregation with the breath of His Holy Spirit that is in us prepare properly for that wonderful "refreshing touch of God."
The ministry of the Holy Spirit convicts us of sin, what we pollute and sick in spirit, body and soul. The Holy Spirit leads us to repentance and "straighten" our steps the "Way of Salvation".

Pastor Chad told us that a few years ago in the city of Los Angeles, California, USA - the government, concerned about the high level of environmental pollution (smog) covering a dark mantle of the city-convened a prestigious group of environmentalists and scientists to perform an important (and expensive) study to analyze how to "remove" this contamination. When scientists finally do their job finished, the president of the investigating committee quoted government officials and the press to announce the results of the investigation. It was a hard time, because the conclusion was reached that these professionals could not do anything to heal the city, they understood that the only chance he had (which was not dependent on them) was that "A strong wind blew the desert and dragged all the pollution of the city towards the Pacific Ocean. "


2. When hearts are hungry for God, He brings us resurrection

The Breath of God renews the hopes, dreams, resurrected ministries, marriages, dead relationships.
The valley of dry bones
37 The hand of the Lord came upon me, and carried me away in the Spirit of the LORD, and set me down in the midst of the valley which was full of bones.
2 And caused me to pass by them round about round about, and behold, there were very many in the open field, and certainly very dry.
3 And I said, 'Son of man, can these bones live? And I said, Lord GOD, thou knowest.
4 He said to me, Prophesy upon these bones, and say unto them, O dry bones, hear the word of the Lord.
5 Thus saith the Lord GOD to these bones: Behold, I will make breath enter you, and you shall live.
6 And I will lay sinews upon you, and will bring up flesh upon you, and cover you with skin, and put breath in you, and ye shall live, and ye shall know that I am Jehovah.
7 So I prophesied as I was commanded: and there was a noise as I prophesied, and behold a shaking, and the bones came together, bone to his bone.
8 And I looked, and there were sinews on them, and flesh came up, and skin covered them above: but there was no breath in them.
9 And he said Prophesy to the breath, prophesy, son of man, and say to the breath: Thus says the Lord God: Come from the four winds, and breathe upon these slain, that they may live.
10 So I prophesied as he commanded me, and breath came into them, and they lived, and stood up upon their feet, an exceeding great army.
Ezekiel 37.1 - 10 RV 60


The prophet Ezekiel being in the Presence of God given power to prophesy (declare) on the dry bones and God backed his statement by a work of resurrection. So the Lord teaches us that from looking and being in his presence receive power and discernment of how to pray, to declare for our life, ministry, family, nation. The Lord calls us to seek to be filled with anointing and power to transform what is dry and dead alive and blessed.


B. The "Strong wind " is the Holy Spirit

Pastor Chad established a dual parallel:

         1. Between the situation of the city of Los Angeles and our society:
The Breath of God has the power transformer to be contamination of our lives. What you need our nation, city, neighborhood and family is that the Lord blow and take all the pollution: violence, insecurity, marginalization, drugs, corruption, etc.. Our Nation needs the "Touch of God" that turns out for the best.

"We all need a" Viento Recio "like the murmur Pentecost" [2]

The impartation of the Spirit transformed hundred twenty believers such an amazing way:

a. The Breath of God transformed their fear and timidity into courage and boldness to preach to everyone.
b. The Breath of God took its limitations and gave gifts to preach to everyone in their own language. Pedro despite being limited man gave a message full of God's power and three thousand were converted in one cult.
That Pentecost wind swept everything that did not serve the congregation's "Upper Room", took the religious and filled with God's anointing and power to revolutionize the entire city of Jerusalem, a true "Revival" that gave birth to the Early Church.

So today we also pray and cry for to be touched, transformed and thus can revolutionize our family, our neighborhood and the city, so that we are the light and salt of our Nation!


        2. Ezekiel 37 and our need for "renewal"
The Breath of God has the power to resurrect all that is as "dead" relatives who do not know Christ and live without hope, joy, peace etc ... ourselves, we need to be empowered to declare with power over those dreams God gave us and are still neglected.



C. Conclusions

 In full agreement with the pastor preached by Claudio on Saturday July 20, this transformation comes when we seek the presence of God, whether in the privacy of our home (both private prayer and in the family) or the worship, where we do corporately. So the recommendation of Jesus: "He who has ears to hear and eyes to see". "We must always be alert and responsive to being touched by the Holy Spirit"
 God is always ready to give us a "cool touch", we must reciprocate with an expectant attitude. The attitude that God expects is "Hungry for more of Him"
                 God wants to give us victory in all areas: Give us victory over drugs, alcohol, sexual area, and in all aspects of our life.

                        God wants to give us the anointing to impact positively on society.
