Why the Eagle?
But they that wait upon the Lord, shall renew their strength: they shall lift up the wings, as the eagles: they shall run, and not be weary, and they shall walk and not faint. Isaiah 40:31 (1599 GNV)
Eagles are fascinating creatures of flight. Years ago, I became enamored with Eagles when I learned about their unique abilities and superior nature. Eagles are referred to in Holy Scripture approximately thirty four times. Not only are they the national bird for the United States but apparently in the days of antiquity Eagles held a significant position among fowls of the air that afforded them repeated admirable mention. Their Divinely given nature speaks to my spirit although I am hardly an ornithologist. I never had high regard for our feathered friends until my Eagle revelation. That's how I knew it was a spiritual thing, for me to pay attention to that particular bird. Yahweh put before me His creature's design to show how it is supposed to work for us walking in His Spirit and not the flesh. He made the Eagle to perform differently, above and beyond other birds and His will is for His people, the remnant saints and warriors to behave differently as well. His called out people should rise above and beyond the clouds, the mere ordinary into His realm of extraordinary. We are able to do this regardless of our status in the world by God's Spirit. Disciples of Yeshua Hamashiach are called to be salt and light in this tasteless dark world for Father God's Glory. We do that with a faith that elevates, not stagnates. It took a while but I finally got it. So, I'm passing this message on with special emphasis underscoring God's remnant Kingdom warriors of this time. "Live as the enduring Eagle. Keep your focus upward and head high. Be Kingdom saints soaring above life's storms from this dismal sin soaked world."
Metaphorically, saints of Yahweh should be like eagles. It makes sense, therefore, to know a few facts about these extraordinary birds in order to appreciate their natural and spiritual uniqueness; how God designed them and why.
