The Air We Breathe

Take a deep breath. Go ahead. Take in a slow, deep breath. And let it out. You can feel it fill your lungs as you take it in. You can feel the pressure decrease as you let it out. This air every living thing breathes in and out is an amazing thing. Like so much of everything else we take it for granted. As long as it's there. We can't see it but we can feel it. Somewhat. When it moves. Interesting in that we live in the bottom of the ocean of our atmosphere and yet we are not hindered by the pressure of it. The pressure of all the elements and molecules in gaseous form at the bottom of this ocean of air captured by the planet's gravity seems literally nonexistent as all things... including us... pretty much move so easily through it. As opposed to the actual oceans of the Earth where the liquid depths are home to incredible pressures. Most submarines in the world consider a depth of 400 meters to be "crush depth" where a submarine starts risking implosion. The Earth's atmosphere had been thought to be about 300 miles (480 kilometers) deep. But new observations are suggesting it is 391,000 miles (630,000 km) from the planet's surface. And yet we don't sense the pressure of the gaseous molecules living in the depth of them all. Matter moves rather effortlessly through it. As does energy in all its varied forms.

Our atmosphere... the air... is made of various elements. Including what is needed to sustain advanced complex life. This would be oxygen. For animal life. Which when "respirated" produces the molecule carbon dioxide. Which is necessary in the air exchange for plant life. Oxygen is also a necessary ingredient of what all life needs. Water. H2O. Two hydrogen atoms and one oxygen atom is the molecule that makes up water. There is a balance also of oxygen and carbon dioxide in the atmosphere. These balances support multiple life forms in the air and in the water. Air and water contains that which is necessary for all of life as we know it in the physical realm.

With all the stuff in the atmosphere of this environment another amazing property of air is how freely vibrations of interacting matter also move through it. These vibrations are manifested as matter interacts by way of forces. When contact between matter occurs it causes vibrations unique to the matter or matters involved. These vibrations that move through the air (and water but not nearly as easily) are traveling longitude waves we can sense through hearing. And sometimes feel them. They move from the source through the air to our ears which picks up the waves. The mechanics of the ear translates the frequencies our sense of hearing is "tuned" to into what we know as "sound." The matter interacting around us causing these sounds are common thereby being familiar that we give the sounds we know descriptions. Descriptions that we communicate to each other using words. That are launched airborne traveling longitude waves we produce by the mechanics of speech. We have the ability to describe to another person what a sound sounds like using sound to do so. This is how we communicate to each other. We use what we are equipped with to produce vibrations we know as words that expresses our hearts that travels through the air to another heart that which is equipped to receive, process and understand. (Or misunderstand. Knowing humans and other assorted critters they way we do.)

The Way Words Are Used Exposes The Heart Of The Speaker 

Unbeknownst to more and more it seems, there is a responsibility these biological units that are made to make vibrations pass through the air have to similar life forms capable of receiving and understanding them. The words that are used between humans can do more than just merely communicate descriptions, thoughts and ideas. Words can be used as tools. Tools for building or tools for tearing down. We all know the effects words used this way has. The Truth of God's Word which is spoken in love is a blessing to hear (whether it feels good at the time or not) and has the potential to produce genuine growth as growth for man was designed. Words used properly this way produces edification for the hearer and the speaker. Growth generated by love via words passed through the air causing understanding is a beautiful and rare thing in the world. Words used improperly out of selfishness have quite the opposite effect. They can cut. Bruise. Tear down and obstruct an individual from the growth intended for the person. As Jesus taught us. "For a good tree bringeth not forth corrupt fruit; neither doth a corrupt tree bring forth good fruit.  For every tree is known by his own fruit. For of thorns men do not gather figs, nor of a bramble bush gather they grapes. A good man out of the good treasure of his heart bringeth forth that which is good; and an evil man out of the evil treasure of his heart bringeth forth that which is evil: for of the abundance of the heart his mouth speaketh." 

Luke 6:43-45 (KJV)

Image result for Ephesians 6:16Consider... if you will how the air is filled in a specific area with vibrations of heart generated thought when someone speaks during conversation. People speak and have been speaking like that since the first human mouth. Consider those vibrations everywhere on the planet as people are speaking.That's a lot of vibrating going on we barely notice. Now consider a lot of heart generated thought in the air that has been building for decades with the advancement of technology. Our thoughts and desires riding radio waves through the air looking to be observed. Even a simple like on a facebook post is heart generated thought traveling through the air on a vibrating frequency too high for us to register with our ears but is sent to and translated for us through the devices we use today in order to see the reaction. This causes people of similar interests to be attracted to each other regardless of physical distance. This in turn is causing narratives being developed with the primary goal towards influencing everybody participating with technology in the world of men. I would think it safe to say these narratives most popular are not generated in love, but in selfishness. From marketing, to news seemingly about what everyone's doing to each other, to personal opinions the world of men is digitized enabling hearts voice to literally the whole world by way of high frequency traveling longitude waves. Even though you can't hear the words I am expressing to you right now you can still "hear" them reading what you see thanks to written language and the ability to send what's written through the air on radio waves. We have gone from pockets of spoken thought voice vibrations in the air on barely populated areas on the globe to the air today being filled worldwide like never before with vibrations expressed from hearts. The world of men is the air our hearts ride with sound looking to connect with another. Influencing and being influenced by them. Add to that movies, documentaries, TV and all the rest that is riding through the air via radio waves trying to get to us and it would seem the sheer volume of these very vibrations not occurring naturally would affect us! For all I know, the human body being somewhat of an antenna... they do.

Who whet their tongue like a sword, and bend their bows
to shoot their arrows, even bitter words - Psalm 62:3

Now consider the words you speak. What are you adding to the environment of the world of men? Do the vibrations you cause to be put out into the air build or destroy? Do they heal or harm? Do you speak that which causes life? Or death? If you're not speaking that which gives life well guess what? It ain't life! To "rise from the dead" is to get born again of God's gift of holy spirit, to think what God's Word says to think and to stop thinking, speaking and behaving like our carnal selves desire. This is how we rise up and become the spiritual children of God we were called to be. While yet in the flesh. As it is written in Ephesians.
Ephesians 4. (KJV)
23 And be renewed in the spirit of your mind;

24 And that ye put on the new man, which after God is created in righteousness and true holiness.
Ephesians 2. (KJV)
And you hath he *quickened (*= brought to life), who were *dead (*spiritually) in trespasses and sins;
Wherein *in time past (* before receiving the Truth) ye walked according to the course of this world, according to the prince of the *power (*=authority) of the air, the spirit that now worketh in the children of disobedience:
Among whom also we all had our conversation in times past in the lusts of our flesh, fulfilling the desires of the flesh and of the mind; and were by nature the children of wrath, even as others.
But God, who is rich in mercy, for his great love wherewith he loved us,
Even when we were dead in sins, hath *quickened (*= made alive) us together with Christ, (by grace *ye (*= ya'll) are saved;)
And hath *raised (* past tense) us up together, and made us sit together in heavenly places in Christ Jesus

Image result for speaking the truth in loveDid you catch that "prince of the power of the air" phrase? That's Satan. He's the one driving the narrative through his people into the world. Uncounted masses of unbelievers. God rejectors striving to their own benefit over others. Grabbing and growling like the beasts they are. Which is why at times we feel the heaviness of evil in the world. The air is filled with lies, distrust and hatred that fly vibrating through the air like flaming arrows looking for a heart to impact and burn out. Orally and now digitally. All this corrupt speech is not our "natural" environment. This is why and how God's children are sanctified from the world. We don't partake in the selfishness of which they speak. We are encouraged to love. Look towards the good in and for others. Love is patient. Love is kind. God's people are to encourage and edify others. Especially the household. We are to forsake the former ways corrupt in the flesh and become transformed by the renewing of our minds in constantly confessing (speaking) the Truth in love in all situations. To ourselves first and to those around us at the proper time. ("A word fitly spoken...") Sometimes whether they're meek to it or not. This is tough at times I know but this is our ambassadorship. Our representing our lord (king) and saviour while we are in the world is confessing him to the world. By simply letting Jesus Christ be known by way of the accurate understanding we have sharing God's Word in our own personal ministering we are producing vibrations in the air that were always intended to be there. The lies of the devil himself are launched into the air voiced by the deceived and cover the world so thick it would seem true believers are up against a giant. Well... we are. But yet the vibrations believers put out into a world void of joy speaking the truth in love is like that of a songbird singing its heart out in a dark storm offering listeners relief from the pressure that is put on us by the massive amount of wrong vibrations circulating the globe in the world of men that are causing the storms. Even against all odds the only thing that can stop anyone from vibrating properly... speaking in love... from singing their heart out... is a choice to do so.
