Creativity – The Breath of God

Holy Spirit 2

Creativity does not flow in a vacuum (a space or container in which the air has been completely or partly removed.) God breathed into Adam and that breath was life-giving. God created through His breath, forming Adam.

And the Lord God formed man of the dust of the ground, and breathed into his nostrils the breath of life; and man became a living being. (Genesis 2:7 NKJVS)

Jesus Christ, the new Adam, breathed into His disciples. He breathed into them spiritual life and power. The breath of Christ is proceeding from His grace. The Holy Spirit is the gift of Christ to us as Christians.

And when He had said this, He breathed on them, and said to them, “ Receive the Holy Spirit. 23 If you forgive the sins of any, they are forgiven them; if you retain the sins of any, they are retained. (John 20:22-23 NKJVS)

Creativity does not flow in a vacuum where air is removed, thereby, affecting life itself. Creativity flows as Christ breathes through His church in the power of Holy Spirit. Creativity flows as Holy Spirit is given the freedom to flow. Holy Spirit moves, creating divine flow and order. That order is God’s way but by now we should know that our order is not God’s order. When the wind of God blew into that room on the Day of Pentecost it blew through with the fury of divine love. That wind was the breath of God and that very breath is in us right now in Christ.

Creativity flourishes on earth when the atmosphere of heaven invades the earth realm through people, filled with the Spirit. Filled with the Spirit? Am I talking about simply about tongues or the supernatural gifts? Yes but that’s only the beginning. Our life is hidden in Christ. I no longer live. Christ’s very life lives in me and through me. Creativity abounds in eternity. The church can live, move and have her being in that realm right now in Christ.

“Eye has not seen, nor ear heard, nor have entered into the heart of man the things which God has prepared for those who love Him.” But God has revealed them to us through His Spirit. For the Spirit searches all things, yes, the deep things of God. For what man knows the things of a man except the spirit of the man which is in him? Even so no one knows the things of God except the Spirit of God. Now we have received, not the spirit of the world, but the Spirit who is from God, that we might know the things that have been freely given to us by God. (1 Corinthians 2:9-12 NKJVS)

Holy Spirit 1

Creativity abounds in revelation of the Living Word of God, Jesus Christ. Creativity abounds in the written Word of God as Holy Spirit breathes on the Word of God. The Holy Spirit is key to moving in creativity in Christ. Holy Spirit reveals that which is hidden to the natural man with natural senses and quickens the revelation to our spirit. Dreams, visions, revelation manifest to us through our spirit. How do we then translate ideas or revelation that can then be manifest in the earth realm? That is where creativity comes into effect. Why? Because as Christians, we are so diverse, so unique, so individual, yet, we are joined in Christ as one new man, rising up in the earth today. Creativity forms in the person of Christ through unique, innovative and fresh ways………more to come.
