Breath of life

Breathing air is not something a person thinks much about unless they have a breathing ailment or the air is contaminated to the point of causing irritation yes?
When God formed the first man Adam from the dust of the Earth He breathed into mans nostrils breath giving him the Spirit of life. “Gen 2:7 And Jehovah God formed man of the dust of the ground, and breathed into his nostrils the breath of life; and man became a living soul.”

Could it be that in Hell is no said Spirit of life only ones soul to be cast unto eternal torment ultimately to be thrown into the lake of fire at the end of the ages?
Today on 18th year of my release from Hell by the Almighty I’m reflective of that horrific event.
I had no breath in the dark cell. There was no air for me to breath yet I felt no suffocation either. I felt an eternal nonexistence. A horrifying knowing that I was no longer alive. No breath. No thoughts no emotions. Flooded and overcome with despair, dread and hopelessness in a pitch black eternal realm outside of God where evil resides and has been given an authority of it’s own.
Yet our Heavenly Daddy was able to penetrate the boundaries of Heaven and Hell with His very Hand plucking my soul from it’s constraints resurrecting my mortal body. And He did this at the legal petition from my wife.  Let the Hand of God pluck you from any mire about you this day for I like you am a child of the living God here to do His will so be encouraged by His extravagant love for you as an individual right now in Jesus Name…

      Thanks guys…as you are well aware of the intricacies(sufferings) with which both Nancy and I experienced due to the GSW and resultant death, there’s a experiential intimacy with our Father that I only wish more could have…sometimes it takes a bullet to the head for a person to live for Daddy out of their heart… Yes it’s an exciting thing to think about the numbers of children that might come to their Father through our real life testimony of Jesus…..
