Why The Name Ruach ?

Ruach

“Ruach” in Hebrew

The word RUACH is found almost 400 times in the Old Testament. RUACH can refer to a human spirit, a literal breath or wind or the figurative meaning as in “a mere breath”. But God’s RUACH is the source of life. If God blows His RUACH into something, it will come to life. Be it finances, relationships, a business or a marriage. His breath commands life.

“My Spirit will give you breath, and you will live again. I will bring you home, and you will know that I have kept my promise. I, the Lord, have spoken.” Ez. 37:14 (CEV)

 

“Then the Lord God formed the man of dust from the ground and breathed into his nostrils the breath of life, and the man became a living creature.” Gen. 2:7

The Collins Dictionary lists breath as “life, energy, or vitality” amongst some definitions. We believe that life, energy and vitality, the breath of life, can only be given by God alone. We can do everything scientifically possible, but it is always and only God who breathes life. We can never take the credit or honor for life, energy, vitality and bestowing breath.

 

The Hebrew language is ancient and wonderful. RUACH is written in Hebrew using the following symbols: the resh, vav and chet. (Keep in mind that you read Hebrew from right to left.)  The Hebrew word picture for the letter Resh, is a head or person. The symbolic meaning of the letter Resh is a poor man who is bent over. The Vav is the symbol of connection and completion. It is used to join, bind and unite. The Chet is the letter of life and light.

 

We believe that God can blow life into any circumstance where people are living “bent over” and feel poor in spirit. When they find connection and are united with the life force we proclaim as God, they will find new life and light.
