The website www.windsofjustice.org a website devoted to applying the Divine Wind or Word of God describes that the phrase “Wind from the Lord” is used by holy scripture to symbolize the force of God’s spirit bringing great, even revolutionary change to society.
From the wind pushing back the Red Sea waters so the children of Israel could escape Egyptian bondage, to the wind ordered by prophet Ezekiel to breathe life into the corpses of his people, to the rushing mighty wind bringing holy spirit anointing to the apostles at Pentecost, these “winds” of Scripture transfer the will and power of God to the human community.
