Psalm 104:30 (NET) When you send your life-giving breath, they are created, and you replenish the surface of the ground.
Psalm 104:30 (TLB) Then you send your Spirit, and new life is born to replenish all the living of the earth.
Psalm 104:30 (ERV) But when you send out your life-giving breath, things come alive, and the world is like new again!
From the three translations above, I can see the correlation between the outpouring of the Spirit in the last days through believer’s life and the restoration of everything, that will lead to the reign of God on the earth (millennial kingdom).
We all know that the destruction of this earth is because the first man, who should have received the mandate to lead and rule this earth, rebelled against God and was deceived by the devil and ended up handing over control of this earth to the devil.
After all, this earth belongs to the Father, so when the devil seizes power from human over this earth, he begins to build a life system that is different from God’s original design. The devil built a system called the worldly system or the Babylonian system. It is the system that we are familiar with these days.
Success in this system is driven by selfishness, and greed in humans. The more selfish and greedy people are, the wider the road to success in this world’s system opens up for them. But many things must be sacrificed to achieve this kind of success. Sometimes they have to give up their honor, their precious things in life, and even the things that are essential for the survival of life itself.
This is the reason why life in this world is getting darker from time to time (from generation to generation). Humans keep competing to be more successful than previous generations. This means that many good things must be sacrificed later.
For example, just look at the forests nowadays. From time to time, deforestation is partly responsible for the natural disasters that happen in the world. They keep doing it and call it as ‘development’, which actually the act of enriching oneself without thinking about the survival of other living creatures or even the quality of life for the next generation.
All of this happens because the people who have power and authority in making policies that affect many people lives, are people who still have the love of money, the love of self, and controlled by greed. So all decisions they make are oriented towards their financial gain.
But the Bible says that when God pours out His Spirit, He will begin a new form of life! God renews the earth with a very different kind of life. The kind of life that prioritizes love, forgiveness, sharing and caring for others, and creates happiness for all beings!
It begins when believers keep pressing into His presence. The work of the Word and Spirit that they experience in everyday life, will make them the temple of the living God. So wherever they are, everyone who interacts with them is the same as interacting with God Himself! From the mouth of the believer will always flow the Word of Eternal Life.
Those who receive and believe in the Word delivered by believers, will see signs and wonders begin to happen in their lives. The Word will mold and shape them to be a different individual who will no longer pursue personal success or financial blessing, but will know how to share what they have received with others and to think about the continuity of the next generation.
I can imagine what happened in Ezekiel 37. God will continue to speak and put His Words upon believer’s life. When believers speak the Word in their prophetic prayers or in their daily interaction, the Word itself will create communities in the midst of the society.
Although each community looks ‘different’ because of its different interests, but all of them are driven by the same spiritual power and purpose, which is to awaken a system of life that is different from the worldly system.
Prayers and prophetic declarations will play a very vital role as those will move and give life in the communities, so that they can synergize and bring benefits to the survival of many people.
I can see how God’s hand orchestrates His churches for transformation and at the same time He moves institutions and communities to respond to His call. Soon they will form a new system of life which will be known as the royal system or the collective system.
We must discipline ourselves to pray for the promises of God and the manifestation of the Spirit that we have received!
Isaiah 51:16 (NET) “I commission you as my spokesman; I cover you with the palm of my hand, to establish the sky and to found the earth, to say to Zion, ‘You are my people.’”
