THE WINDS OF GOD 2015 -  1/03/15

Today I pondered the Hebraic year 5775 / 2015 and it being connected to the whirlwinds/ breath of God. 




I was suddenly reminded that Bob Jones had an old word explaining about the 7 winds of God.  I sense that are important things in His Word that relate to this year.




The angel stated that these are the miraculous winds that will begin to reverse the curse of the enemy and release many from the trap of the fowler.   “Divine Grace” to function in our behalf in the provision set apart for this great day.  Great grace is our access to these doors and he further illustrated there was


1. The North Wind – The release of Grace opening the door for reserved provision.  Set apart a people to be the beneficiaries and participants in the Father's great end-time plan.


2. The East Wind – Mercy acted in kind compassion to cleanse and sanctify from filth and defilement.


3. The South Wind -  a Delivering wind, to set captives free from torments.  Drawing out and setting apart, rescue, rover, escape.  Also delivering or birthing Kingdom purpose in the earth.


4. The West Wind – The wisdom of God, astute counsel to release His plans, purpose and strategies.  To know the heavenly plans and to apply them practically upon the earth.


5. A Down-Wind – impartation of divine knowledge like Daniel and understanding mysteries.


6. An Up-Wind – wind of understanding to know the enemy plans, purpose and strategies.. to spy, plunder and restore what was stolen.  To discern and overcome enemy plans.


7. A Divine Wind –   To come up higher and know the mysteries of God.



The following is what Bob Jones saw about the angel named Grace.



by Bob Jones and Paul Keith Davis


December 2002

There is a man by the name of Tertullian who was among the Apostolic fathers and stands out as a remarkable leader and scribe of early Church activity. He was recognized as a powerful thinker and writer during at the dawning of the Third Century Church. He predominantly lived in the area known as Carthage (near Tunis, Tunisia today) and fully embraced the impartation of the prophetic gifts as demonstrated in his generation, some 200 years after Pentecost.


An Early Church Model


In one of his writings, he describes one particular sister from among their fellowship who was significantly gifted and privileged to witness many visions and visitations. Tertullian wrote of her saying, "we have now among us a sister whose lot it has been to be favored with sundry gifts of revelation, which she experiences in the Spirit by ecstatic vision...she converses with angels, and sometimes even with the Lord; she both sees and hears mysterious signs; some hearts she understands and to those in need she distributes remedies... among other things, says she, 'there has been shown to me a soul in bodily shape and a spirit has been in the habit of appearing to me; not, however, a void and empty illusion, but such as would offer itself to be grasped by the hand, soft and transparent and of and a ethereal color, and in form resembling that of a human being in every respect.'”


Tertullian went on to acknowledge that this was her testimony and as he put it, "for her witness there was God, and as the apostle most assuredly foretold, there were to be spiritual gifts in the Church." This early example of the visitation of the Holy Spirit to His Church releasing insight with understanding provides a pure model for our hope and expectation for this hour as well.


The Visitation of “Divine Grace”


As with this precious sister, it is also been the experience of Bob Jones to frequently be visited by angelic messengers. Very often, certain ones are in the habit of appearing to him over the years, each providing a specific and distinctive release of the Lord's divine attributes. One such messenger has been an angelic being known as "Grace."


Whenever it has been his privilege to witness the manifestation of this angel before or during a particular season, it has always denoted the release of the Lord's grace to accomplish a specific purpose.


As we have often stated. Many of the revelations given to Bob are in prophetic and allegorical form. It is the predominant intent in the revelations given to him to provide insight with understanding into the heart of the Father and the things He is freely offering to us in this hour. When the apostle John was taken to Heaven, he heard the sounds of thunder and was then allowed to observe the breaking of seven seals.


Although what he saw was clearly symbolic in nature, it captured the heart of God and His plans for the unveiling of His Kingdom. We are now being given the incredible opportunity in this generation to gain greater insight into those mysteries as we welcome the manifestation of His Divine Grace.


Great Grace Revealed


Recently, Bob was allowed another prophetic experience in which he witnessed the visitation of an angelic messenger that looked very similar to the one known as "Grace." However, he could distinguish that this was not the same messenger as seen in the past. He first saw her from the back and thought it certainly was going to be "Grace" however, as the Heavenly being turned he could ascertain that it was not the one he has known as "Grace." Instead, this angel looked to be considerably younger, like that of the granddaughter of “Grace.”


Those who are desperately searching for "Grace" will abandon all temporal things in their pursuit to attain that place to behold “Great Grace.” Grace is the older appearing, symbolically portrayed as a “grandmother” and Divine Grace is the younger. She seemed somewhat heavy and strong because of the glory that she carries. The glory of God is weighty and dense in its spiritual substance.


When the angelic visitor noticed that Bob was surprised to see that it wasn't "Grace," she spoke and acknowledged that she had been sent as a replacement for grace. She communicated that the prior angelic being was “Common Grace” but now she was being sent as "Divine Grace." This represented a much greater dimension of revelation and bestowal of the Lord's unmerited favor and demonstration of His goodness.


Divine Grace Revealed


It is the responsibility of Divine Grace to release within the Church a far greater dimension of the Lord's Might and Power.


Now there are distinctive varieties and distributions of endowments (gifts, extraordinary powers distinguishing certain Christians, due to the power of divine grace operating in their souls by the Holy Spirit) and they vary, but the [Holy] Spirit remains the same. (1 Corinthians 12:4) [Amplified]


When the Lord delivered Israel from the bondage of Egypt, it was with a mighty demonstration of His Power that was undeniable. In no way could it have been recorded that the arm of man achieved their great liberty. Instead, it was to be remembered throughout all generations that the Lord accomplished it with His Mighty Hand. It was "divine grace" that brought the victory. This goes far beyond what we sometimes recognized as "common grace."


The admonition brought to Bob from this unique messenger promised that we were entering a season of great grace that will replace the common grace by which we have formally been operating. Divine grace will now distribute the power and revelatory gifts in a more pronounced and convincing way to bring freedom and salvation to the people of God.


This sovereign provision will be delegated to those who have found grace in the sight of the Lord. Specifically, it will include fellowships and believers who have presented themselves before the Lord in a broken and contrite way who tremble at His Word. There has been a resistance orchestrated by the enemy to prohibit key leaders from emerging as pioneers and forerunners. The winds of God are about to be released will overcome this resistance.


The angel went on to say that the Heavenly host has been waiting for this day for many years and will now be released to those who are pursuing the abandonment of soul, denying selfish ambition and personal agendas.


To our great advantage, God is initiating a “kairos” moment in human history long foreseen and foretold by prophets in generations before. As the Scriptures emphasize, He makes his ministers a flame of fire fueled and spread by the winds created by angelic messengers.


Abandonment of Soul


This season will demonstrate a greater grace than we have ever witnessed before for those who have experienced abandonment of soul. It is recorded that Noah was a man who found grace and favor in the sight of the Lord. Therefore, he was recognized as a deliverer for his generation. In this first account of a man discovering grace before God, we learn the valuable benefits of a man abandoned to the Lord and His Word. As is always the case, God offered mercy in the midst of judgment.


But Noah found favor in the eyes of the LORD. These are {the records of} the generations of Noah. Noah was a righteous man, blameless in his time; Noah walked with God. (Genesis 6:8-9)


Despite the ridicule and persecution of his generation, Noah pressed through to the promise he had received from the Lord and surrendered all else to see its fulfillment. There were no distractions or enticements offered by the spirit of this world that would nullify the grace of God imparted to Noah in the fulfillment of his destiny.


As a demonstration of his abandonment to God, Abraham was required to leave his country and relatives and sojourn in the land revealed to him. It seemed Abraham was provoked to surrender all that was dear to him that provided security and support in order to inherit the promise imparted to him. Because of his willingness, Abraham was recognized as the friend of God and heir of the covenant (Acts 7:2-4).


The Lord Himself provides the perfect example of One who abandoned His soul before the Father.


Fixing our eyes on Jesus, the author and perfecter of faith, who for the joy set before Him endured the cross, despising the shame, and has sat down at the right hand of the throne of God. For consider Him who has endured such hostility by sinners against Himself, so that you will not grow weary and lose heart. (Hebrews 12:2-3)


Our Savior endured the cross for the joy and privilege of sitting upon the throne of Heaven granting the remittance of sin in the fulfillment of His destiny. He acquired for God a people to be a part of His Kingdom. This was the greatest example of Divine Grace manifested within the realm of man.


My God, my God, why have you forsaken me? Far from my deliverance are the words of my groaning. O my God, I cry by day, but you do not answer; and by night, but I have no rest. Yet you are holy, O you who are enthroned upon the praises of Israel. (Psalm 22:1-3)


“Abandonment of soul” means to renounce, forsake, surrender, succumb, and relinquish our own thoughts and will to that of the Father. The angel who carried the message of "Great Grace" went on to say that many have come to the place of total relinquishing and abandonment of soul and therefore this greater dimension of grace is being deposited in this generation. Divine grace is replacing common grace.


When this takes place, the curses of the enemy heaped upon God's people are returned on himself and those who sent them.


After the first nine plagues of Egypt had been fulfilled, Moses once again requested the liberation of Israel from the bondage of Egypt. As before, the heart of Pharoah was hardened yet this time he pronounced a curse of death against Moses. However, because of the grace and favor that rested upon Moses and the people of Israel, the curse was actually reversed and fell upon the household of Pharaoh and all of Egypt. In Exodus 10 and 11 we discover a profound example of God's tremendous favor resting upon a body of people to bring, not only freedom from captivity, but also the restoration of wealth. Israel departed Egypt fully compensated for the many years of burdens and labor.


It is a time of reversal and restoration for those who have allowed this process to be accomplished in their soul. Clearly, it should not be the heart of devoted Christians to desire the curses to be returned upon other people who have been deceived by the enemy and are held captive by him to do his will. Rather, it is upon the spiritual influences that dictate and orchestrate the actions of men in a futile effort to frustrate the grace and plans of God.


The Wings of the Winds


The angel continued and stated, "we will see the wings of the wind and it will begin to take people out of the net of the fowler...for where the Spirit of the Lord is, there is liberty" (2 Corinthians 3:17). The delay in the impartation of great Grace has been because of the difficulty we have had in coming to the place of total abandonment of soul.


The Lord is promising that He is about to destroy the demonic “nets” that have captured many of His people. The winds of His wings shall provide a delivering force and safe refuge for those who take shelter in Him. The Holy Spirit, through “Divine Grace,” will provide a delivering force that frees us from the snare of the trapper and from deadly and noisome spiritual pestilence.


For it is He who delivers you from the snare of the trapper and from the deadly pestilence. He will cover you with His pinions, and under His wings you may seek refuge; His faithfulness is a shield and bulwark. (Psalm 91:3-4)


It will be a dangerous time for those who have been willingly used by the enemy to orchestrate and release demonic opposition, just as it was during the days of Israel's deliverance from Egypt. When the day of deliverance had fully come, Egypt's judgment was swift and harsh.


An Open Door


Bob was then taken to a great door in the heavens. Within the structure of this single the door there were incorporated seven doors. There was one single door in the middle surrounded by three other doors that were surrounded by four additional doors. Behind these doors were the seven winds of Heaven.


He was instructed to open this ancient bronze door. His initial reaction was that he did not know how the door was to be opened. The angel simply instructed him to touch the door and the power of “great grace” will release this great gateway and grant access to things heretofore unavailable.


Somehow, within the context of this single door there were also seven other doors that the angel stated were the “seven winds” of Heaven. Bob was somewhat startled by the acknowledgment of seven winds and stated that he knew of only four (Ezekiel 37:9).


The messenger continued his instruction and stated that this prophetic experience is utilizing seven winds to symbolically portray the deposit of great spiritual resources necessary for our end-time mandates. As the Bible points out, He makes His angels winds. Perhaps it is the revelation of seven angelic beings, each carrying these attributes to those who have fully yielded themselves to the will and purposes of the Father.


Great grace is our access to these doors and he further illustrated there was:


1. The North Wind


2. The East Wind


3. The South Wind


4. The West Wind


5. A Down-Wind


6. An Up-Wind


7. A Divine Wind


When Bob asked why he had never known of seven winds before, the angel instructed that these had been demonstrated in other forms but not that of winds. There were the seven colors of the spectrum denoting the completion of God's order and covenant represented in the rainbow along with the seven spirits who stand before the throne. Angels are identified as “winds” according to the book of Hebrews as it is written:


… of the angels He says, "WHO MAKES HIS ANGELS WINDS, AND HIS MINISTERS A FLAME OF FIRE....Are they not all ministering spirits, sent out to render service for the sake of those who will inherit salvation? (Hebrews 1:7 & 14) (emphasis mine)


The angel stated that these are the miraculous winds that will begin to reverse the curse of the enemy and release many from the trap of the fowler. These winds are introduced in the same way that the original bronze door was opened; by the reaching forth with our arm of faith to access “Divine Grace” to function in our behalf in the provision set apart for this great day.


The first great door was round in its shape and built within it were four other circular doors denoting the four directional winds. Furthermore, somehow built within those round doors were two others and finally inside of those two was the single seventh door harnessing the greatest of all... Divine Wind.


North Wind- Grace


The first wind was the release of grace. This wind opens the door to grant access to His spiritual provision reserved for this day. It is the grace and favor of Heaven to set apart a people to be the beneficiaries and participants in the Father's great end-time plan.


For this reason I, Paul, the prisoner of Christ Jesus for the sake of you Gentiles- if indeed you have heard of the stewardship of God's grace which was given to me for you; that by revelation there was made known to me the mystery, as I wrote before in brief. (Ephesians 3:1-3)


The apostle Paul openly acknowledges the grace of the Lord Jesus Christ and His Messianic authority who appointed the very one who formerly persecuted the Church he now serves. Because of this great grace, Paul declares himself to a "prisoner" of the gospel in his preaching of God's message to the Gentiles.


It was a sovereign act of great grace to take the very one that formerly oppressed the Church of the Lord Jesus and now make him the prominent voice of his day. So shall it be in this hour. Those who think they have been disqualified because of failure, discouragement and distractions will now experience a qualifying grace to emerge in this hour as a prominent voice for the Kingdom and the fulfilling of our Apostolic mandate.


East Wind- Mercy


The second door was the East wind unleashing the Mercy of God. This results in the release of the Lord's mercy to cleanse and sanctify His people from the filth and corruption of this world. This wind will provide mercy to deliver us from our defilement and His spiritual DNA to rescue us from our carnal DNA.


Mercy is generally understood to be an act of kindness or compassion born of love and directly related to the state or condition of the one to whom mercy is granted. The state of the one receiving mercy is generally depicted as one of suffering and need and neither worthy nor deserving of mercy by the one granting it.


According to Matthew 5, mercy is also granted to those who have sown mercy. There is a divine economy and exchange that transpires producing amplified dividends for those involved.


FOR I WILL BE MERCIFUL TO THEIR INIQUITIES, AND I WILL REMEMBER THEIR SINS NO MORE. When He said, "A new {covenant} " He has made the first obsolete. But whatever is becoming obsolete and growing old is ready to disappear. (Hebrews 8:12-13)


It is an incredible demonstration of mercy to be pardoned and cleansed of our unrighteous acts and nature. It is here demonstrated how superior our new covenant is over the old. How much more are our opportunities to display the revelation of His Kingdom, especially in this hour with the announcement of extraordinary mercy.


Our iniquity is not only pardoned but also erased to be remembered no longer. That is good news.


South Wind- Deliverance


The South wind was the release of the third door that is a deliverance wind. This release of His grace will begin to set free those in prison and captivity to the oppressions and snares of this world. The enemy has imprisoned the body of Christ but now the Lord means to bring deliverance.


Many are captured by fear, lust, jealousies, anger, and no doubt many other tormenting adversaries. The unveiling of this wind will bring liberty and freedom to those willing to abandon their soul and yield their will to the will of the Father.


The Spirit of the Lord is upon Me, because He anointed me to preach the gospel to the poor. He has sent me to proclaim release to the captives, and recovery of sight to the blind, to set free those who are downtrodden, to proclaim the favorable year of the Lord. (Luke 4:18-19)


The South wind is the Spirit of Deliverance generated to mark a people prepared to inherit the promises. Throughout the Scriptures, the term "deliverance" is most often associated with the concept of "drawing out" and "setting apart." It is to rescue, recover, and cause to escape enemy oppressions by a body of people who are delegated the freedom to worship God in Spirit and in Truth.


Once delivered from the “net of the fowler,” we are free to soar in the heavens to receive additional wisdom and revelation essential for our maturity and growth.


It can also be associated with the concept of childbirth. To deliver something that has been germinating in the spiritual womb of a body of people to birth Kingdom purposes in the earth.


West Wind- Wisdom


The fourth wind freely unharnessed was the West wind. This accessed the unveiling of the Wisdom of God. The astute counsel of God to release to us His plans, purposes and strategy to accomplish His mandates for this exceptional time in human history.


Ephesians 1:17-18 emphasizes the right of every believer to be anointed with the Spirit of Wisdom and Revelation. This form of wisdom is not merely the ability to mentally analyze a situation and make a good response. Rather, it is a spiritual endowment that allows a believer to go deep into the heart of the Father to perceive and understand the heart of the Father and our rights through redemption. Not only do we have the liberty to understand these mysteries but also the accompanying Spirit of Revelation that gives illumination and comprehension of their reality.


The God of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Father of glory, may give to you a spirit of wisdom and of revelation in the knowledge of Him. I pray that the eyes of your heart may be enlightened, so that you will know what is the hope of His calling, what are the riches of the glory of His inheritance in the saints, and what is the surpassing greatness of His power toward us who believe. (Ephesians 1:17-19)


The Spirit of Wisdom is more clearly defined as a supernatural impartation of the Holy Spirit granting the ability to see and recognize the Lord Jesus with a spiritual knowledge and comprehension of His mysteries, plans and purposes. This heritage will reveal the manifold and unsearchable wisdom and secrets of God hidden in Christ. It relates to a deeper intimacy and awareness into the things of God and intimates a personal close encounter with the Lord.


The accompanying Spirit of Revelation grants a comprehension of these mysteries and attributes of God. It involves an understanding and perception with our soul of these things revealed in the Spirit. It grants the ability to not only know the things of God but also the practical application of them in the earth and in our lives.


The Apostle Paul was anointed and flowed with this Spirit. This same Spirit is essential for us in this generation to know the concealed secrets reserved for the last days and share in the hidden manna set aside for the end-time perfecting of the Bride.


When we read these words in the Bible, our intellectual minds detect that there are great promises that have been provided. Even so, when anointed with the Spirit of Wisdom and Revelation, we obtain an experiential comprehension of our redemptive birthright. It becomes living truth being given expression through consecrated vessels.


As the Scriptures point out, “Eye has not seen, ear has not heard nor has it entered into the heart of man all the great blessings the Lord has provided for us” (1 Corinthians 2:9). Nevertheless, to a called and set-apart people, it has been granted to know the mysteries of the Kingdom. The Spirit of Wisdom and Understanding provides the articulation and comprehension of His “glorious inheritance in the saints.”


It will also mark the wisdom of Heaven to begin to transfer the wealth of the wicked into the hands of the righteous (Proverbs 13:22). This will denote a wisdom of God that has not yet been demonstrated in this generation.


Down Wind- Divine Knowledge


The fifth wind was acknowledged by the angel as a "down wind." This wind is an impartation of Divine Knowledge.


But as for you, Daniel, conceal these words and seal up the book until the end of time; many will go back and forth, and knowledge will increase. (Daniel 12:4)


This profound promise involves supernatural insight that comes only from God. Great knowledge and craftsmanship was imparted to certain ones after the deliverance of Israel from Egypt for the purpose of creating the Tabernacle of Moses. (Exodus 31:3) They were specially endowed individuals who were entrusted with great comprehension and delegated the knowledge of God.


It was said of Daniel that he possessed great wisdom, knowledge and insight in all manner of writing and literature and even understood all kinds of visions and dreams (Daniel 1:17). This was a gift to him from God for the purposes of Heaven.


This fifth wind brings down from Heaven the knowledge of God essential for us to transcend present limitations and unharness the infinite mind of Christ. Furthermore, this will also release a true knowledge of God from the Scriptures. As we call upon Him, He will answer us and reveal to us great and mighty things that we have not known (Jeremiah 33:3). It will be the unveiling of the Spirit of Truth providing a sanctifying light.


There will be those influenced and anointed by this fifth wind that function in a true priesthood ministry and impart genuine knowledge of God that will separate the clean from the unclean and the precious from the profane. There will no longer be an excuse for those who perish for lack of knowledge. This day will witness a rich deposit of God's ways among the Church.


The divine knowledge He is imparting will also touch on great insights into His creation. As the Scriptures point out, all of creation is groaning for the revelation of the Sons of God. These will be delegated with substantial understanding in light, sound, energy and the elements of creation.


Up Wind- Understanding


The sixth wind was described as an "up wind.” This spiritual endowment provides a “wind of understanding.” The Lord is going to give us great understanding of the dimension in which the enemy resides and the place where his plans, purposes and strategies are formulated. The Bible points out that we do not wrestle against flesh and blood, “but against the rulers, against the powers, against the world forces of this darkness, against the spiritual forces of wickedness in the heavenly places.” (Ephesians 6:12)


It is in the “heavenly places” that specially equipped and anointed individuals will we taken by this wind as a spy with a ministry to plunder and to restore. It was said of Elisha that he revealed to the king of Israel the secret plans formulated in the private chambers of the Syrian king (2 Kings 6:12). This expression is literally referencing the "bedchamber" and denoting the place of greatest possible secrecy. It is not just the house of the enemy but the most private areas.


It is the Lord's intent for us to begin to raid the kingdom of the enemy and those things that he has stolen from God's people both in prior generation and in ours. Each gift, anointing and spiritual talent that has been seized from the Church by the snares of the enemy will now be reclaimed by individuals who are willing to press in to the Lord and allow themselves to be used by Him to plunder the camp of the enemy. It will provide a great source of plenty during a time of famine.


In 2 Kings 7, four desperate men considered their lives as good as dead and were used mightily by the Lord to plunder the camp of the enemy and utilize the provision of the enemy for the well-being of the righteous.


And I will restore to you the years that the locust hath eaten, the cankerworm, and the caterpiller, and the palmerworm, my great army which I sent among you. And ye shall eat in plenty, and be satisfied, and praise the name of the LORD your God, that hath dealt wondrously with you: and my people shall never be ashamed. (Joel 2:25-26)


I Will Restore...what an incredible promise. As one commentator put it, “since the cankerworm, etc. are images of spiritual enemies, this place has been paraphrased to mean 'I will not allow the richness of spiritual things to perish which ye lost through the passions of the mind. 'Nay, since none can recover without the grace of God and using that grace, the penitent, who really rises again by the grace of God, rises with larger grace than before, since he has both the former grace, and; in addition, this new grace, whereby he rises.”


The sixth wind is a spiritual impartation to allow us to discern and overcome the plans and strategies of the enemy attempting to frustrate the birthing of God's purposes in the earth. This is often represented through a “pharisaical” spirit that is very religious in nature, yet frustrating to the purposes of Heaven. They attempt to block the door preventing others from entering in. There is a divine judgment coming against this effort of the enemy that will free many within the Church. It is actually a judgment against spiritual bondage and oppression.


His desire is to keep us from being fully seated with Christ in Heavenly places and walk in the reality of that spiritual position. We have not yet fully apprehended the reality of our being positionally placed with Christ in Heavenly places. The enemy has attempted to usurp the posture of Christ in the Church through the plans he has orchestrated in Heavenly places. We must begin to apprehend the fullness of that place in Christ and demonstrate His virtue in the earth.


Divine Wind- Mysteries of the Kingdom


Finally, the angel took Bob to the seventh and final door. There seemed to be a sense of anticipation and expectancy surrounding this incredible door of Heaven. This is the wind called, "The Mysteries of God." Jeremiah 33:3 in the light behind this door and the wind that gusted upon its opening was so significant that we cannot stand nor see in this place by virtue of our own strength.


We presently do not possess the purity of character to access this door in its fullness. However, the Lord is promising, through His divine grace, to prepare a body of people who will inherit these promises and began to access the spiritual provisions portrayed in the spiritual winds here illustrated.


Revelations 4:1 admonishes us to heed His voice as He beckons us to come up higher before the door standing open in Heaven that grants access to Him and the unveiling of His Kingdom. It seems as though the bestowing of this opportunity to pass through the "door" of Heaven has incorporated within it other doors that open up to the resources and attributes of Heaven.
