The answers to all our human problems, my friend, are “blowing in the wind.”

The answers to all our human problems, my friend, are “blowing in the wind.”

I have been commanded “that the wind should not blow on the earth, nor on the sea, nor on any tree.”

How quickly we forget how important it was to have the book of Revelation’s meaning “unfolded in the eyes of all people” before “the work of the Father has commenced upon all the face of the land.” (See BOM, Ether 4:16-17.)

Excerpt from 666, The Mark of America, Seat of the Beast—The Apostle John’s New Testament Book of Revelation Unfolded (pages 170-172):

7:1 And after these things I saw four angels ascending from the east standing on the four corners of the earth, holding the four winds of the earth, that the wind should not blow on the earth, nor on the sea, nor on any tree.

John is telling us here that the truth (“the four winds”) is being withheld from the people of the earth. The “trees” represent humankind (see Revelation 6:13 commentary). John also writes that the wind does not blow “on the sea.” The “sea” translates throughout Revelation as “waters”:

And he saith unto me, The waters which thou sawest…are peoples, and multitudes, and nations, and tongues.” (See Revelation 17:15.)

This verse is given to refer to a condition on earth when the spirit of God (truth/“wind”) is withheld.

The “wind” represents an understanding of truth, regardless of whether that understanding comes from an outside source, such as when a prophet speaks, or from within, as when one has an epiphany of realization and understanding. In some verses of scripture, “wind” has represented the workings of the Spirit, which Jesus also named or referred to as the Holy Ghost. The term “Holy Ghost” was not used by Old Testament prophets, and when the term “Holy Spirit” is used, it is only in reference to the Lord’s spirit, which can be replaced in all instances with “truth”:

Behold, I was shapen in iniquity, and in sin did my mother conceive me. Behold, thou desirest truth in the inward parts: and in the hidden part thou shalt make me to know wisdom. Purge me with hyssop, and I shall be clean: wash me, and I shall be whiter than snow. Make me to hear joy and gladness; that the bones which thou hast broken may rejoice. Hide thy face from my sins, and blot out all mine iniquities. Create in me a clean heart, O God; and renew a right spirit within me. Cast me not away from thy presence; and take not thy holy spirit from me. Restore unto me the joy of thy salvation; and uphold me with thy free spirit. (Psalms 51:5–12)

In all their affliction he was afflicted, and the angel of his presence saved them: in his love and in his pity he redeemed them; and he bare them, and carried them all the days of old. But they rebelled, and vexed his holy Spirit: therefore he was turned to be their enemy, and he fought against them. Then he remembered the days of old, Moses, and his people, saying, Where is he that brought them up out of the sea with the shepherd of his flock? where is he that put his holy Spirit within him? That led them by the right hand of Moses with his glorious arm, dividing the water before them, to make himself an everlasting name? (Isaiah 63:9–12)

According to Old Testament stories, Moses spoke to the Lord face to face, and received from his mouth the commandments by which the people should live. These words from the mount are what Isaiah was speaking of when he wrote, “put his holy Spirit within him.” This signifies “the wind” that passes from the Lord’s mouth, and which John gives as the “four winds” of truth that “the angels” have power to give to the world:

He sendeth out his word, and melteth them: he causeth his wind to blow, and the waters flow. He sheweth his word unto Jacob, his statutes and his judgments unto Israel. (Psalms 147:18–19)

When Christ was living among mortals, “the wind” was given directly from his own mouth. But when he died and was no longer among them, “the wind” came from a direction no one could understand:

And when the day of Pentecost was fully come, they were all with one accord in one place. And suddenly there came a sound from heaven as of a rushing mighty wind, and it filled all the house where they were sitting. And there appeared unto them cloven tongues like as of fire, and it sat upon each of them. And they were all filled with the Holy Ghost, and began to speak with other tongues, as the Spirit gave them utterance. (Acts 2:1–4)

A contemporary musical group sang a popular song, seemingly understanding that truth (whispering wind) would be the steps, or stairway, to heaven:

Your head is humming and it won’t go because you don’t know…the pipers calling you to join him. Dear lady can’t you hear the wind blow and did you know: Your stairway lies on the whispering wind. (Stairway To Heaven, Led Zeppelin)
