Richard Sibbes on the Holy Spirit

“The wind … bears down all before it, beats down houses, and trees, like the cedars of Lebanon, turns them up by the roots, and lays all flat. So the Spirit is mighty in operation. There is no standing before it. It brings down mountains, and every high thing that exalts itself, and lays them level; nay, the Roman and those other mighty empires could not stand before it.”

From Sibbes’ Bowels Opened.
