The 2018 Super Bowl won’t be played until tomorrow, but some players on the Philadelphia Eagles are already celebrating their great victory, including injured quarterback Carson Wentz and wide receiver Torrey Smith.
In the 8-minute video shown below, several Eagles players share their testimonies of how their lives were transformed when they made the change from just knowing about God to actually knowing Him personally.
Torrey Smith explains, “I went to Bible studies. I went to church often growing up, but it wasn’t until I was in my last year of college where I realized I was living off of everyone else’s salvation. I wasn’t really finding out things on my own. I wasn’t diving into the Word or exploring that the way I explored everything else around me, so that’s when I kind of realized I was kind of living the wrong way.”
Torrey, Carson, and other Eagles players now regularly meet together to share their faith and encourage one another. So, regardless of the outcome of the big game tomorrow, these players have already learned the secret of having victory in this life.
Eagles are known for their keen eyesight, able to see far away with amazing clarity, which is why they symbolically represent the prophetic ministry in the Bible. Just as the Philadelphia Eagles are underdogs in the 2018 Super Bowl, the day is coming soon when the people of God will face the most overwhelming odds, persecuted by the great dragon and unable to buy or sell without the mark of the beast, but God has already made a way of escape for them, giving them the wings of the great eagle to carry them to a place of safety and provision in the wilderness where they will be nourished for three and a half years. (Revelation 12:14)
The Church today has mostly shunned the prophetic ministry as a group of spooky, flaky weirdos, but in the days to come, the great eagle will arise, enabling the Church to fulfill her destiny, becoming the glorious Bride without spot or wrinkle, ready for the Lord’s return (Ephesians 5:27). Perhaps this is the hidden message in this year’s Super Bowl with the Philadelphia Eagles representing the rise of the prophetic ministry in these last days to the place God intended all along. (Ephesians 2:20)
