Understanding the Meaning and Symbolism of Wind
The Bible teaches us that the wind is one of the symbols of the manifestation of the Holy Spirit, although the Holy Spirit has several biblical symbols: fire, wind, water, rain, cloud, spring, oil, and dew. However, our focus is on the topic of the wind, which is the central subject of this work.
The Wind symbolizes the invisible action of the Holy Spirit, just as we can observe the effects of the wind without seeing the wind itself (John 3:8).
When the wind of the Holy Spirit or natural winds blow in our lives, we can see their impact, but the wind remains unseen. It has the power to change everything in our lives when it blows in our favor (Psalms 78:28-29). However, when these winds blow in opposition, they have a negative impact on us (Job 1:19).
The Wind is a symbol of the Holy Spirit or the Spirit of God, the Creator.
The Wind symbolizes spiritual power.
The Wind represents the transience of things.
The Wind has several meanings, but in the context of spiritual matters, it is compared to the Holy Spirit or the Spirit of God. Breath: Breath from His mouth signifies divine power, either in creation (Psalms 33:6) or in judgment (2 Samuel 22:16).
The Wind is the symbol of God’s angels (Hebrews 1:7; Psalms 104:4).
The Wind is the symbol of Satan’s fallen angels (Revelation 7; Daniel 11:4).
Contrary Wind: (Matthew 11:24).
Symbolically, it represents an energy deployed by the devil to turn us away from the Lord Jesus. It is also a figure of the violent opposition that the enemy of our souls provokes through persecution (Zechariah 6:5-8).
Winds are symbols of Christians, the children of God (John 3:7-8; Matthew 24:31).
The wind is a symbol of God’s divine judgment against the wicked (Isaiah 41:16; Psalms 1:4-5; Jeremiah 51:1-2).
The wind is the movement of air or a mass of air.
2.4. Knowing the Direction and Type of Winds Blowing for and Against You
You must seek to know and understand what type of wind is blowing for you and against you. Which wind can you use in your current situations and circumstances? Jesus and the Holy Scriptures teach:
“And, behold, there came a great wind from the wilderness and smote the four corners of the house, and it fell upon the young men, and they are dead, and I only am escaped alone to tell thee” (Job 1:19).
“The wind bloweth where it listeth, and thou hearest the sound thereof, but canst not tell whence it cometh and whither it goeth: so is every one that is born of the Spirit” (John 3:8).
“And when ye see the south wind blow, ye say, There will be heat; and it cometh to pass” (Luke 12:55).
“And when the south wind blew softly, supposing that they had obtained their purpose, loosing thence, they sailed close by Crete” (Acts 27:13).
“And from thence, when the brethren heard of us, they came to meet us as far as Appii Forum and The Three Taverns: whom when Paul saw, he thanked God and took courage” (Acts 28:15).
For instance, a storm wind from the north (Ezekiel 1:4) symbolizes the invasion of Israel’s territory. Although the Babylonians were to the east of Israel, the attacks came from the north because the Chaldean armies had to circumvent the vast Syrian desert to reach the land of Israel.
Therefore, it is essential to:
- Face the direction of the wind during the prayer of combat and be in an ideal position relative to the direction of the wind, as each wind has its direction, origin, and gates.
- Stand up and face the direction of the wind you command, for there is an angel in each wind’s direction, both an angel of God and a demonic angel.
- Displace and remove the demonic angel in front of you first, the one holding back the wind against you, as this demonic angel holds a mystery of wind against you.
- Seek the assistance of the ministry of the angel of the Lord who holds the mystery of the wind from that direction. You can associate with them to help you displace and remove the demonic angel in the direction of the wind you want to use.
For instance, if you want to use the west wind, command the ministry of the angel of the Lord in the West, who holds the west wind, to displace the demonic angel from that position, causing the same wind to drive him away and make him disappear, in the name of Jesus Christ.
