Today is the 56th Anniversary of the day I first received YHWH’s *“Breath of Life”, so “Let everything that has breath praise Yah. Hallelu-YAH!” Because if we should “keep silent, the stones would immediately cry out.” [Psa 150:6, Luke 19:40]
YHWH gave me my first breath of life on this day at 7:10 a.m. 57 years ago. With that first inhale and exhale I spoke His name and He continues to enable me to speak His name approximately 16 times a minute – every minute! That’s 30,000,000 times over the course of my first 57 years that He’s heard His name from just my involuntary act of breathing!
Here’s how that works:
With every inhale you say ee-ah (YH יה) and with every exhale you say oo-ah (WH וה) and this happens regardless of your beliefs. If you claim to be an atheist, you’re still proclaiming His name with each and every aspiration.
“All Scripture is Elohim-breathed and profitable for teaching, for reproof, for correction, and for instruction in righteousness, that each person who belongs to Elohim may be complete, thoroughly equipped for every good work.” [2 Tim 3:16-17]
I no longer call it a birthday; I call it an anniversary and I vow to never again make it about anything I’ve done because being born isn’t an accomplishment by the one being born, and it certainly doesn’t call for a celebration OF that individual for it is ALL about what YHWH has done and IS doing. Giving birth is a work done by the Creator through His design of the reproductive process whereby the child, upon being born, is given YHWH’s breath of life, and the parents are given the gift of their child. “Of His own will He gave birth to us by the Word of Truth, that we should be a kind of first fruits of His creatures.” [James 1:18]
Now, celebrate THAT!
