First time you get one of those little temper spasms, the Dove flies right away. That's right. She can't stand it. Her nature is different. Oh, She can't stand that at all. And you go to talking about your neighbor. She can't stand that. She just won't put up with it. He just takes His flight and goes on away. He just can't stand it any longer. The Dove is gentle. The Dove is meek, and the Dove, and--and can't stand no nothing unless it's the same kind of a nature.

But, today, oh, my, how we want our differences! Oh, my. "I tell you, you just let somebody say something to me, I'll go over and get him, boy, I'll take him apart. I'll tell that old hypocrite when I see her! You just wait till I see her! Bless God, hallelujah! Uh-huh!" The Dove just takes His flight and goes on away. That's right. The Holy Spirit is not with you anymore, as long as you feel that way. Just mark that down in your book, It'll never do it. The Holy Spirit just won't stay around where that kind of a spirit is. It's got to be a lamb spirit, a gentle spirit, or It just won't stay with it, that's all there is to it; if it ain't a gentle, meek, led by the Holy Spirit.

And may the old wolf spirit leave them and may the gentle, quiet spirit of the lamb come, and the Dove of peace will settle upon that lamb as it did on Jordan that day. For they're the only two creatures that could get along together. And we realize that old fighting brutal spirit of the world, the Holy Spirit could never dwell in a place like that. He just--just takes His flight and goes away. And we know that would have been the same thing if that Lamb would've ever acted like a wolf. But it had to be a Lamb.

Now, you say, "Well, that's wrong." You preach that in your church some of them said, "Oh, I--I'll never go back again." Snort like a wolf, what does a lamb do? What does a dove do, if you snort like a wolf? He takes His flight.

Well, that's the same way now. And our ill ways, the Holy Spirit just takes His flight and goes away. It's got to have the same nature. The bird of the heavens, the dove; the meekest animal on earth, the lamb; they can agree together. And when the Holy Spirit comes upon us and makes us new creatures, then He can lead us. But we try to live the same old life, it won't work! It just won't work.Back to Main Page
