The White Dove Testimony
It was the 28th of August when I got up to drop my wife off at work. I usually get up in my pajamas on my off days when I drop her off. That morning I felt something telling me to get dressed. I said to myself why do I need to get dressed since this was my day off from work. Anyway, I listened to the voice inside of me and got dressed. When I got back home my son needed a ride to school. On the way to school I was telling him how to conduct himself and what God is expecting from him as his child in this new college environment. As I was talking to him, I heard a little voice in my heart telling me that afterI dropped him off go to the park in Cape Elizabeth and pray. I started questioning myself why I should do that as previously I had been interrupted by police a few times when praying aloud in the park.
The reason I went to the park, I used to live in an apartment in Portland, Maine and used to pray so loud that it disturbed my neighbors. They complained a lot to me and to the landlord. I was forced to find another place to pray and express myself to God. I was led to go pray in the park. I thought that this would not disturb others. Howeve,r on two occasions the police interrupted me.
While I was questioning my inner voice I decided to obey. I know that only God would encourage me to go pray. The bible says when the saints of God go to their knees the devil trembles. I went to the park and to me it meant sacrificing for God’s purpose and I had to suppress my fear of the police coming again. For almost about a month I felt like I walked with my head down been discouraged because everything I was doing wasn’t going right. I felt like God had abandoned me. I needed somebody to pray for me because my burdens were too heavy to carry on my own, but I said to myself, “devil, this might be your turn but I know one thing – that the Lord will hold me by my hand and help me to climb my mountain”.
When I got to the park it was 9am. I went under the shade to start praying quietly. Five minutes passed and I heard a sound around me. I opened up my eyes to see what was there and saw a crow going around me. I was disappointed to see a crow while I was in the presence of God.
I said to myself, dear Lord I wish it was a white dove which is a symbol of your presence and blessing from above, why is this bird here disturbing me? I kept on praying, about two minutes later I heard the same movement around me. I said “Oh lord what might this be again?”. I opened my eyes and saw the white dove…. tears starting coming out of my eyes andI felt a tremendous peace in my heart. The dove was behaving like an excited dog that was happy to see its owner. I started giving praise to God for His kindness and his love for me. The dove I saw flew up to the rafters and I noticed that there was another white dove there.
I said, “Lord is this a vision or reality?”. After two hours of praying I said, Lord I would like to go and buy a camera so I could take pictures of the doves, which had been sitting there the whole time watching me pray. Another point of importance is that the police did not show up in all the two hours I was praying and praising God. I asked God to keep the doves and not allow them to fly away till I came back. It took almost twenty five minutes for me to return and I found the doves still sitting there. I took the following pictures of the doves.
I asked God again, saying, ” Lord, I would like a feather from one of the doves”, and as I said that, one the doves flew from where it was and came closer to where I was standing, not too far from my left shoulder. I lifted up my hand and reached out to the dove and said, “Lord, don’t let it move”. Surprisingly the dove did not move when I reached out for it. I took some feathers and then it flew away and the other dove took off right after it. That to me meant that God is God. After that there was no doubt in me, I thank God for all my trails. Right after the doves flew away some people came into the place that I was praying. I believe God timed it so that they did not come sooner so that I could have this wonderful experience with Him.
All my burdens and requests which I have brought before our Lord Jesus Christ in prayer and supplications on that day where miraculously resolved. I thank God for that and as Brother Branham said:” …” The Christian has not one worry in the world. They should be the most freest, happiest people in all the world. ‘Cause there’s nothing… You can’t lose. And all things work together for good to them that love God. So how can we lose? There’s just nothing to lose, is there? We’re just anchored away in Jesus Christ, going home to glory, having a good time while we’re going along, God providing everything for us. Marvelous.

205 And the next day Something said, “Go back to the mountain.”
And that day instead of going one way, I was led to go another way. And I was standing there; and looking, setting in the front of me, and there set that seventh little, white dove, looking right at me. I rubbed my eyes; I said, “Surely, it’s a vision; surely, it is.” I looked, and I said, “Little dove, where do you come from?” Just as pretty and white, could’ve been a pigeon, whatever it was, a-way in that wilderness. God Almighty, Who raised up Jesus Christ from the dead, Whose servant I am, and His Word laying here open before me, know that I tell the truth and lie not. There set the dove, setting there looking at me. I walked around; I thought, “Surely, it’s a vision.” I turned my head; I looked back, and there he set there, them little, white wings, just as snowy as he could be, his little, yellow feet; and little, yellow beak; setting there looking at me. He was watching right straight westward. I walked around him like that; I wouldn’t touch him for nothing. I walked on up the trail; looked back, and there he still set watching me. Brother, as a son of Abraham, I consider not what the doctor told me; I’m going to be well anyhow.
ON.THE.WINGS.OF.A.DOVE_ SHP.LA V-7 N-5 SUNDAY_ 65-1128E 210 The third day I went back; I was climbing up high. And many of you know the vision about the Indian chief riding that little wall to the west. Something attracted me off to a big rock, about noon time, said, “Lay your hands against that and pray.” God in heaven knows this is true. I laid my hands against the rock and looked up towards heaven and started praying, and I heard a Voice coming out of the top of the rocks there, said, “What are you leaning against, over your heart?” And I raised back like this, my bare shoulders; naked from my waist up, hot. I looked back. And there was wrote in the quartz, in the stone, white, “Eagle” just exactly what the vision said that the next Message would come forth by. I was so excited I run home, got a camera, and come back the next day, and took the picture of it. It was still there, wrote in the rock, white, “Eagle” (Dove leading eagle).
BEGINNING.ENDING.GENTILE.DISPENSATION_ JEFF.IN SUNDAY_ 55-0109E E-9 Noticing then, that when these brethren were down there they were put to a test, a very beautiful example of what a true believer comes to when he really accepts the Lord Jesus as his Saviour. He’s always put to the test. Satan’s still in the testing business. And it only comes about to help you. It’s for your good. “Every son that cometh to God must be tried, chastened, scourged;” and other words, give a little thrashing, straightening up. And if God gives us some chastisement and we can’t stand it, then we become illegitimate children and not the children of God. Now, man that’s really got his faith set towards heaven, no matter what takes place here on earth, he’s still got his faith set towards heaven. His friends may forsake him; his family may forsake him; his pastor may forsake him; but there’s one that won’t forsake him; that’s God. And when your mind is made up, I like that.
BEGINNING.ENDING.GENTILE.DISPENSATION_ JEFF.IN SUNDAY_ 55-0109E E-10 Daniel had burnt all the bridges behind him. He wasn’t planning on going back anymore. He wasn’t watching his back trail; he was looking… Forsaking those things which were in the past, he pressed on to the mark of the high calling. That’s what we should be doing. That’s what the Church should be doing. And as I notice then, God permitted Satan to give him a test. And, oh, they tested them by the fire. They tested him also by the lion’s den. And every instance God brought them out more than victorious. “Many are the testings of the righteous: but God delivereth them out of them all.” How marvelous that is. How we appreciate that, trials, tribulations, tests, all working for the good. After while God can see then, and He can put His trust in you, and then He will do great things for you.
BEGINNING.ENDING.GENTILE.DISPENSATION_ JEFF.IN SUNDAY_ 55-0109E E-13 Now, before you can have a victory, there has to be a battle. And if there’s no battles, there’s no victories. So we ought to be thankful for the battles and the trying. It’s God giving us the opportunity to have victories. Oh, my, don’t that make it a little bit better now? See, the battle come along, somebody saying something bad about you, sickness come on to you, maybe God give you those light afflictions that He might heal you and show His favor to you, let you see what He means by it. He loves you.
Your Brother in Christ
