“Beloved. There is a NEW WIND blowing. Winds of change. Winds of the Spirit.
From what has been to what will be. From the old way of doing things to new strategies and new plans.
“Forget the former things, My Child, and put your mind on the NEW things I AM doing.
“The past only brings up pain and fear. This is not where you dwell, My Love. In ME, you live and move and have your being.
“My Spirit is always moving, never stagnant. Flow with Me, Dear One. Let no one say you are too heavenly minded.
“For you have the Mind of Christ. Old things have passed away. You are a NEW CREATURE.
“I AM always doing a NEW thing. You will perceive it by the Spirit. New things are springing forth.
“For My Spirit is Breathing where He wills and you shall hear My Voice. For We are One in the Spirit.
“Rise up, My Love, and come away. Let Me have My Way in you. The enemy will not know where you have come from or where you are going.
“Come away, My Bride, remember not the former things. Ride the Winds of Change and flow with Me into the NEW.
“Fear not, Beloved, I AM He who makes all things NEW.”
“The wind bloweth where it listeth, and thou hearest the sound thereof (the Spirit breathes where He wills, and you hear His voice); but know not where it comes from or where it goes, so is every one that is born of the Spirit,” John 3:8.
“Remember ye not the former things, neither consider the things of old. Behold, I will do a NEW thing; now shall it spring forth; shall ye not know it? I will even make a way in the wilderness, and rivers in the desert,” Isaiah 43:18-19.
“Therefore if any man be in Christ, he is a NEW creature: old things are passed away; behold, all things are become NEW,” 2 Corinthians 5:17.
“But when the kindness of God our Savior and His love for mankind appeared, He saved us, not by the righteous deeds we had done, but according to His mercy, through the washing of NEW birth and RENEWAL by the Holy Spirit. This is the Spirit He poured out on us abundantly through Jesus Christ our Savior,” Titus 3:4-6.
“And He rode on a cherub and flew; and He appeared on the wings of the wind,” 2 Samuel 22:11.
“Awake, O north wind; and come, you south; blow on my garden, that the spices thereof may flow out. Let my Beloved come into His garden, and eat his pleasant fruits,” Song of Solomon 4:16.
Benson Commentary: Song of Solomon 4:16. Awake, O north wind, &c. —
These winds may signify the several dispensations of God’s Spirit. Blow upon my garden — This verse is spoken by the spouse. And she calls the garden both hers and his, because of that oneness which is between them, Song of Solomon 2:16. That the spices may flow out — That my graces may be exercised. Let my beloved come into his garden — Let Christ afford his gracious presence to his church; and eat his pleasant fruits — And let him delight himself in that service which is given him, both by the religious worship, and by the holy conversation of his people.
