The Breath Of The Almighty.

"The Spirit of God has made me, And the breath of the Almighty gives me life."
Job 33:4 NKJV
The breath of the Almighty is the Holy Spirit. After His resurrection, the Lord Jesus came to the place where His disciples were assembled and "...He breathed on them, and said to them, “Receive the Holy Spirit." (John 20:22). How awesome!
Receiving the Holy Spirit for the believer is not optional. It's a must. Worshipping God in the flesh leads to corruption.
"But you are not in the flesh but in the Spirit, if indeed the Spirit of God dwells in you. Now if anyone does not have the Spirit of Christ, he is not His" (Rom 8:9).
God is looking for worshippers who worship Him in Spirit and in truth and that is not possible without the Holy Spirit.
Jesus once told the Jews that the flesh has zero profit: "It is the Spirit who gives life; the flesh profits nothing. The words that I speak to you are spirit, and they are life." (John 6:63). Glory to God!
Did you see that? Anything done, even for God, including preaching, singing, giving and giving of thanks without the Holy Spirit is dead.
Elihu knew that it is the Breath of the Almighty that gives us life. Without the Holy Spirit in you, your spirit is dead, your soul is in the morgue and your body is perishing.
But when the Spirit comes, the dead in trespasses and sins are quickened, their souls are given a new lease of life and their bodies revitalized by His indwelling presence. "Receive ye the Holy Ghost".
The Spirit of God has made me, and the breath of the Almighty has given me life.
