A Dove (Matthew 3:16): Because the dove is a symbol of purity, peace, and flies in the heavens and was used as a sacrifice for the poor.

A Pledge, Earnest Money (2 Corinthians 1:22): Because He is the pledge and the down payment of our inheritance. A

Seal (Ephesians 1:13): Because a seal protects, makes secure, and demonstrates ownership.

Fire (Acts 2:3): Because fire separates the impure from the pure, it cleanses and purifies. Oil (Acts 10:38): Because oil was used for anointing, for healing, for nourishment and burned to give light.

Water (John 7:38): Because water is simple yet mysterious. It is tasteless, formless, colorless, transparent, and buoyant. It can hold up a huge ship. It is used for transportation. The Holy Spirit holds us up and transports us through this world to the World To Come. Water cleanses and refreshes. With water there is life, growth, and fruitfulness. Without water there are deserts.

Wind (John 3:8): Because we can’t see the wind but we can see its results. Just as the winds blows wherever it wants, so God’s Spirit is sovereign. He gives gifts as He wills. Wind can be powerful like a tornado or hurricane, or be a cool refreshing breeze.

Breath: (John 20:22). Without breath we die. God’s Breath gives us life. We have life and intimacy with God due to His indwelling Spirit.

Wine: Because we are not to be drunk with wine, but be filled with the Spirit. (Ephesians 5:18).
