REVELATION:  I was thinking about the rest of the dove.  How it searches for a place to rest, a roosting place to rest.   I had a flash impression of the ark resting after the long flood.  The ark is a symbol of us as His temple of the Holy Spirit.


Gen 8:4-5

Then the ark rested in the seventh month, the seventeenth day of the month, on the mountains of Ararat. 5 And the waters decreased continually until the tenth month. In the tenth month, on the first day of the month, the tops of the mountains were seen.


As I read the following, the black raven was among the abominations of unclean meat.  The demonic are unable to rest and pace back and forth.   When the ark rested and the raven left, he found no rest and kept going back and forth.



But the dove, returned to rest in the ark until the earth had a place for her.  This brought into remembrance how when the dove descended from heaven, she found her resting place upon Jesus. 


Gen 8:6-12

Then he sent out a raven, which kept going to and fro until the waters had dried up from the earth.


Isa 57:20-21  NKJV

But the wicked are like the troubled sea, when it cannot rest, whose waters cast up mire and dirt.  "There is no peace," says my God, "for the wicked."


He also sent out from himself a dove , to see if the waters had receded from the face of the ground. 9 But the dove found no resting place for the sole of her foot, and she returned into the ark to him, for the waters were on the face of the whole earth. So he put out his hand and took her, and drew her into the ark to himself. 10 And he waited yet another seven days, and again he sent the dove out from the ark. 11 Then the dove came to him in the evening, and behold, a freshly plucked olive leaf was in her mouth; and Noah knew that the waters had receded from the earth. 12 So he waited yet another seven days and sent out the dove , which did not return again to him anymore.


John 1:32  AMP

John gave further evidence, saying, I have seen the Spirit descending as a dove out of heaven, and it dwelt on Him [never to depart].



I posted the above this morning and when I went to my other email account I noticed someone had sent me the following email about Noah, the homing pigeon. I sense this is a parable where the Holy Spirit is resting upon those ministries that are adopting orphaned children of all ages. It is also a wonderful parable that as we become little children and return to our Papa's lap, His Spirit finds a resting place and warm canopy over us.



These little bunnies, about 6 days old, were attacked by a dog and orphaned.


Two out of the litter of five did not survive, and these three were not doing very well. 


Noah is a non-releasable, one-legged homing pigeon that we have here in rehab.  Noah kept going over to the bunny cage and looking in...even sleeping in front of the door to the cage.


Then, 2 days ago, I only counted 2 bunnies in the cage, so I hurriedly picked Noah up from the front of the cage so I could look inside.  And to my surprise...there was the tiny bunny...under Noah's wing...sound asleep!  The bunny had crawled through the cage....preferring a featherbed, no doubt.


Now, they are all together, and the bunnies are doing GREAT.  When the bunnies scoot underneath Noah's feathers, he extends his wings out to surround them.. and they snuggle. When one of them moves and they start sticking out here and there, he gently pushes them back under him with his beak! This is amazing!


'He will cover you with His feathers, And under His wings you will find refuge.'

(Psalm 91:4)
