The Bible has many scriptures, especially when you read from the KJV, that are poetic, and unless we take time (individually – ourselves) to study them out… we may miss their real meaning. One scripture I have heard over and over, always thinking I fully understood the meaning… but WOW, Today in prayer, I began to feel the need to study it. I’m so thankful I did!
“The wind bloweth where it listeth, and thou hearest the sound thereof, but canst not tell whence it cometh, and whither it goeth: so is every one that is born of the Spirit.” KJV
The wind (pneuma – Christ’s spirit, the Holy Spirit) bloweth (pneo – to breath) where it listeth (thelo – to will, be resolved, to desire), and thou hearest (akouo – to hear, to attend, be noised, be reported) the sound (phone – a sound, tone, musical instrument, a voice, a sound of uttered words, speech, of a language, tongue) thereof, but canst not tell whence it cometh, and whither it goeth: so (houto – in this way, in like manner) is (esti – to be, come, must need) everyone (pas – all, any every) that is born (gennao – to be born, begotten) of (ek – after, out of, from, by) the Spirit (pneuma – Christ’s spirit, the Holy Spirit).
