Like A Dove

And the Holy Spirit descended on him in bodily form like a dove. And a voice came from heaven: “You are my Son, whom I love; with you I am well pleased.” Luke 3:22

Why did the Holy Spirit descend in the form of a dove? Was this a prophetic sign from God?

In Hebrew the meaning of the name Jonah is Dove. There was a reason the Spirit came down in the form of a dove, it was a prophetic sign from our Heavenly Father about the crucifixion and resurrection of Jesus Christ.

For as Jonah was three days and three nights in the belly of a huge fish, so the Son of Man will be three days and three nights in the heart of the earth Matthew 12:40

Jesus prophesied about this later also in his ministry. He mentions Jonah who spent 3 days and 3 nights in the belly of the whale. Jesus was prophesying about his death and spending 3 days and 3 nights in the heart of The Earth. Just as Jonah rised out of the whale after 3 days and saved Nineveh, Jesus rose from the grave and conquered death and sin.

Just as the dove left Noahs Ark and returned to send the message that the world has been saved (Genesis 8:11) Jesus has saved the world from our sins, look for the signs from our Heavenly Father in Jesus Name Amen

  2. Shattered in Him

    I love watching the clouds and the sky. When I lived in a part of the country that had white doves flying around, they looked the MOST BEAUTIFUL against the dark, stormy sky. Always made me think of God watching us during the storms of life.
