The above scripture text is apart of a larger scripture lesson on the re-birth salvation plan of God – John 3:1-17. But for the purpose of our edification, we shall only focus on verse 8.
In verse 8, Jesus uses the “wind” to demonstrate or paint a picture of the character of those who have been truly born again – born of the water and of the Spirit. In this part of his discussion with Nicodemus, he is describing the character and behavior of those born again and endowed with the Holy Spirit.
We all understand that the wind is air in motion. It is invisible. No one can see it but we can all hear it, feel it and see its effects and impact upon our environment.
This can mean that those who are born of Water and the Spirit now exist in a different dimension than those who are not. The Holy Spirit causes us to act, think, feel and perceive differently from the world. So those who are not born of the Spirit of Holiness can not discern (see) or understand (comprehend) where we come from and where we may go. They can only observe our impact on the environment as we move (blow) through. They can hear us, feel our presence, see the effects of our movement but never understand us or from whence we come.
As 1 Corinthians 2:14 says:
“The person without the Spirit does not accept the things that come from the Spirit of God but considers them foolishness, and cannot understand them because they are discerned only through the Spirit.”
