During my prayer time on October 19, 2017, I saw a close up view of a bald eagle diving through the air, moving so fast the wind formed visible lines around him, like a spacecraft breaking through the atmosphere.
Eagles are known for their keen eyesight, able to focus on small prey up to 5 kilometers away and maintain their focus as they dive down for the kill, so I believe this eagle, represented new vision coming from heaven to earth, new insights into the realm of God’s spirit, new revelation knowledge, coming upon God’s people.
When I saw it, I immediately recalled many eagle encounters shared by others during the past few weeks. Here are some examples.
On September 24, 2017, Pastor John Kilpatrick from Church of His Presence shared the following testimony of an encounter with a bold eagle.
“Let me tell you what happened this morning. Shock of all shocks, I came out my back door, in Seminole, where I live, it’s about 35 minutes from here, and there was a bald eagle on my back porch. Now, I’m not mistaken about it because I know birds. I used to raise pigeons. I know my species of birds. This was a bald eagle. He had white hair, a white head with the white feathers. He had white tail feathers and whenever he flew, his wings had to be seven or eight feet, I would say, it was big, it was way out there. And when I saw that eagle, I knew it was a sign and I just couldn’t figure out what kind of sign it was. My grandson, I didn’t know it, but he saw it and he said as you were leaving the property, he said that bald eagle followed your truck about 30 feet above your truck. It’s just circled your truck all the way until you left the property. Isn’t that something? … he said it circled your truck as you drove around. It followed you until you left the property then it flew up in a tree and left.”
Pastor Kilpatrick’s son shared his dad’s testimony in the following 9:30-minute video clip recorded during their Sunday service.
When Pastor Kilpatrick shared his story with a woman in his church, she was amazed because she had just finished reading an article, which was published just a few hours earlier, written by Andy Sanders from 5 Fold Media, sharing his own amazing revelation about eagles being released over America.
“I have looked down upon My cities,” says the Lord. “I am placing the eagles over My cities as the watchmen who tower into the skies. Every city will have watchmen on the walls, watchmen from within, and watchmen in the skies. I am sending My eagles up into the skies to see far out in advance in order to warn My people of distant trouble.
Do not be afraid of your enemies who will try to strike fear in your hearts. Fear is not of My hand nor of My Kingdom. I have called you to pray; I have called you to stand at the gates of your city and seek My face, becoming a shield of protection for those behind you. I will be with you as you stand in the gap. I am using you as My instrument of peace, protection, and healing over your land.”
There are enemy plans taking place once again to disrupt multiple cities all at the same time, bringing dishonor to our land, chaos to our streets, and fear within the heart of our country. These plans must be stopped through the power of unified prayer and worship. Christians are to see and warn in advance of coming troubles. This isn’t “gloom and doom”; it is God’s ability to reveal the plans of the enemy to His people before they happen.
As I brought the prophets out of the caves during Elijah’s day, I am releasing My prophets into the skies over America to reveal that which is being said and planned way before it should happen. I will use My prophets to foil and expose the plans of the enemy.
I will cause My soaring eagles to become like a shield of fire within the skies—a banner of protection to their cities. The enemy’s plans will no longer be a hidden mystery to My prophets or My people. I will send My people to the front lines quicker than first responders can arrive on the scene.”
Prophets must rise to the occasion now. The years ahead will require the prophets/prophetesses to see and hear with greater clarity. They must speak exactly what God tells them, holding nothing back.
As Elijah stood in the face of the prophets of Baal and Asherah, so will My people stand and not be afraid. I am raising up the remnant, separating the foul breed from among My people. I will cause My people to become as bold as lions in the face of their enemies. Do not be afraid of those who wish to cause you harm. You will tread on the enemy that wants to destroy your land. With your own eyes you will watch deliverance with My mighty hands.”
Do not fear those who want to bring harm against your city. The Lord will change the hearts of some of your enemies, and you will find favor where you never had it before.” (see the complete post)
Another recent eagle encounter was shared by Pastor TD Hale from Calvary Christian Center in Galipolis, Ohio on his Facebook page on October 12 2017.
“I have lived in this area for over 40 years and never one time saw an eagle as close as I did today. Just 3 miles from Wellston, Ohio. We were coming down the road and I came upon it in the road close by the edge. At first I thought it was a buzzard and I certainly did not want to hit it, but I’m glad I slowed down because it was not moving until I almost got upon it and was shocked to see it was an eagle. I hurried up and stopped the car and it flew off and started going around in a circle around us until it landed in the trees. We could not get a good picture because it was shady. We just watched it and was amazed at one of God’s creation and how so close we were to it. WOW is all I can say.”
On the same day, October 12 2017, Z3er Mike Fisch shared an eagle encounter in a comment posted on Z3news.com.
“My daughter saw something significant from our back window. She watched a large bird of prey, which she later identified as a golden eagle, holding a snake. Golden eagles are rare around here, but I have seen them before in the winter. A second golden eagle tried to take the snake and a struggle ensued. In the end, the eagle who first held the snake flew away with it triumphantly. I believe the eagles represent presidents and the snake represents reins of power.”
On October 5 2017, Z3 News contributing author Angie van Greuning shared an amazing vision in which she saw many eagles sent from heaven to earth, each with specific assignments. When she asked God to explain what she was seeing, He revealed some of the different assignments given to different eagles:
- “Some are there to burn up the dross. All those things that are being done, which are against My will, I shall consume with fire. Even nations will feel the burning of this fire.”
- “Other eagles are putting a fire of boldness in people, to the point of even knowing, like with Esther, if they do something specific that I tell them to do, they could be killed.”
- She was shown some were commissioning eagles, commissioning God’s chosen people whom He has placed and prepared all over the world.
- “Other eagles have come to relight the fires of nations where My children used to burn for Me and for My purposes, but their fires have gone out because they could not deal with the attack of the enemy on their lives.”
- Other eagles will fly over churches and gatherings of My people, and they will bring revival fires. And they will burn up anything that was blocking this revival, and suddenly people will experience Me intimately and the fire of My love, in ways this world has not yet seen. (see the complete post)
Another Z3 News contributing author, Lana Vawser, saw new encounters with God coming upon those who linger in His presence, unlike anything we have experienced before. Even though she didn’t mention eagles, I believe she was seeing the results of their ministry in the following word she shared on September 27 2017:
“Over the past little while, I have felt a very strong stirring in my spirit for the prophets right now. There is a drawing of the Lord to withdraw into the secret place more than ever. There is a call to LINGER with Him more than ever before.
I have been seeing the Lord’s heart longing for the prophets to come deeper than they have ever been, and as they ‘drew away,’ however that looked, I saw encounters with His heart and His Glory unlike anything they had ever experienced.
I saw the impartation of His heart being released in unprecedented ways. There are secrets of His heart that He wants to release right now that are deeper than He has ever shared, but He is looking for those who will linger. He is looking for those without agenda. He is looking for those who will minister to Him. He is looking for those who care not about how big their ministry is, how big their platform is, or how much favor they have, He is looking for those who want to be His friend.
Prophets, there is a divine impartation the Lord is wanting to place within you in this season, but you MUST come away.” (see the complete post)
With the return of the Lord drawing near, it’s time for God’s remnant army to arise, finally stepping into our end time assignments, but it’s going to require revelation knowledge as we move into a realm where the things of heaven become more real to us than the things on earth, causing us to be led more by the invisible realm than the visible, knowing things we could not possibly know unless God revealed it to us. The eagles are coming to bring specific revelation knowledge needed by specific individuals for their specific assignments, opening their eyes to see and do what God wants them to see and do with eagle-like clarity of vision.
Revelation is what separates the true Church from the false Church, the true way to God from countless other ways, man-made religions, which cannot save anyone, which is why the Lord Jesus told Peter He would build His Church upon the rock of revelation from the Father. As soon as revelation came, authority came with it, as shown by the next words Jesus spoke,
18 “I also say to you that you are Peter, and upon this rock I will build My church; and the gates of Hades will not overpower it.
19 I will give you the keys of the kingdom of heaven; and whatever you bind on earth shall have been bound in heaven, and whatever you loose on earth shall have been loosed in heaven.” (Matthew 16:18-19)
Revelation is the foundation for the true Church because it’s the foundation for authority in God’s Kingdom. Without it, we’re just imposters and imitators of the real thing, counterfeits and frauds, no threat to Satan’s kingdom. But with it, we have authority over the earth and over all the power of the enemy. The gates of Satan’s kingdom cannot stand against that kind of authority.
Revelation is what the great end time battle will be all about. The enemy will try to remove it from the earth by killing anyone who has it because he knows they’re the only ones with the power to destroy his kingdom.
The Church we see today is not ready for the battle ahead because it’s built on the wrong foundation, having mostly rejected the ministries of apostles and prophets (Ephesians 2:19-20), which are the only two ministries based entirely on revelation, tossing them out and charging them with being too spooky, too flaky, too weird, and too scary. So, the Church has built upon other “safer” foundations, the ministries of pastors, teachers, and evangelists, because their insights are drawn from the contents of an ancient book, the Bible, making them more tolerable to unbelieving, carnally minded, pew sitters who doubt it’s even possible to hear from God today.
As a result, the Church we see today is mostly built upon the doctrines of men, which explains why it has become a lifeless, boring, dead, dry religion that most people don’t want to waste time attending, especially not young people because they have so many other things contending for their attention. I don’t blame them because I don’t like wasting my time with it either. Even the Lord Himself is not interested in attending services in most churches because they bear no resemblance to Him and provide Him with no opportunities to touch or change the lives of anyone in attendance.
The good news is He’s not returning for a boring dead corpse, but a glorious, spotless, holy, and blameless Bride (Ephesians 5:27), which means a great transformation process is coming soon. We hear a lot about great shakings coming to wake up the sleeping Church, but it’s going to require more than that. It’s going to require the ministry of eagles, revelation knowledge, launching us into the fulfillment of our destinies as we encounter the living God and truly begin to hear Him, follow Him, and know Him like never before.
I believe the eagles now being sent to earth are the beginning of the fulfillment of the events described in Revelation 12 where the Apostle John saw a great sign in heaven, a woman giving birth to a child, but Satan, represented by a dragon, stood before the woman seeking to devour the child, but when the woman, representing the Church, gave birth, her child, representing the righteous remnant of believers who are now arising and will soon usher in the return of the Lord, was caught up to God and to His throne. This catching away to God and to His throne is the ministry of the eagles, carrying His righteous remnant into the realm of heaven where we soar high above every earthly care and receive a heavenly perspective. As Lana Vawser saw, “encounters with His heart and His Glory unlike anything they had ever experienced.”
From those heavenly encounters, the remnant will receive revelation and with that will come great authority. Those who overcome Satan’s schemes and obey the Lord until the end will be given authority over the nations, ruling with a rod of iron (Revelation 2:26-27 and 12:5). For many of them, it will mean martyrdom as Satan persecutes the Church with great fury, but many will be carried to safety “on the wings of the great eagle”, carried by the ministry of the apostles and prophets, where God has prepared a place for her in the wilderness.
13 And when the dragon saw that he was thrown down to the earth, he persecuted the woman who gave birth to the male child.
14 But the two wings of the great eagle were given to the woman, so that she could fly into the wilderness to her place, where she *was nourished for a time and times and half a time, from the presence of the serpent. (Revelation 12:13-14)
Great trouble is coming upon the world, but God is making provision for His people ahead of time by sending the eagles. Now is the time for the eagles.
Yes Lord, send your eagles!
