When the Wind Blows

You can't tell from where it comes or where it's going, but you can sure see it effects. When the wind blows, things happen. When God moves and blows His Spirit, supernatural things happen. This past Sunday, God chose to send a little wind our way at Pleasant Hill Baptist Church. Jesus' name was uplifted and one man made a profession of faith.

Was he led in some superficial prayer after reading 4 key verses from the "Epistle to the Romans"? No. Has that ever been a requirement for true regeneration and justification? Absolutely not. When the wind blows, the wind does the work. A sinner crying out for mercy is the visible effects and not what initiates the wind. "How then shall they call on Him in whom they have not believed?" (Rom. 10:14) 

Regeneration is a supernatural act of God and not the results of repeating prayers, making decisions or altar visits. (John 1:13, Titus 3:5) Why do most shallow church-goers and so called gospel "preachers" totally ignore John 3:8? Let's get back to biblical terminology and leave the traditions of men in the fairy tale books.
