Just for a moment… close your eyes and imagine looking up at an open, very blue sky. As you enjoy this incredible beauty all of a sudden a huge flock of birds come soaring by your window of viewing. It is absolutely breathtaking! But then you notice something odd about this wonderful sight. The flock of birds are eagles! Huge bald-headed eagles. What an incredibly awesome sight to behold! As they pass your line of sight and you are still stunned by the view, you begin to wonder… how can this be? Eagles don’t fly in flocks. They are loners.
But God is bringing together His own flock of eagles. They are spiritual eagles and they fly together. They fly way above the clouds, into the heavenly places.
“But God, being rich in mercy, because of His great love with which He loved us, even when we were dead in our transgressions, made us alive together with Christ (by grace you have been saved), and raised us up with Him, and seated us with Him in the heavenly places in Christ Jesus, so that in the ages to come He might show the surpassing riches of His grace in kindness toward us in Christ Jesus.” Ephesians 2:4-7
These believers have touched the Lord and know how to live by His life and not their own. They have learned to love one another and carry the cross to allow suffering and tribulation to mold them and mature them. They are learning to live as a community (flock) and to no longer be loners. They live for the King “eagle” himself and not for themselves. They are also learning to live far above this world system and all of its entanglements. They are also learning to live for His flock and to lay their lives down for one another. To prefer one another. To love one another. And to lay their lives down for one another.
This is a totally NEW breed of eagles!
They do not follow the eagles of this world. They only follow the King Eagle.
This new breed of eagles is being expressed by little flocks all over the world. And they are a sight to behold!
These eagles sit at the top of their food chain and have no predators… except one.
Mankind and the system of mankind is the biggest threat to this breed of eagles. They will fall like flies when weighted down with the cares of this world. The master mind behind the world system has so crafted it to attract and consume these special eagles.
But that is exactly why a flock is so important!
They need one another to help each one fly above the world system. They need each other to help and support each one so that they can fly directly into the Son. Only a flock that keeps their eyes on the Son can survive! Unfortunately many only come to the flock when they are utterly desperate. It’s usually when they have tried everything else. But that is not the only hurdle.
True flocks of eagles are very rare! (Those who are focused on the Son alone).
That’s because the world system (including the religious system) is so pervasive.
And yet these flocks are there. They exist. They are growing!
Are you, dear eagle, hungry for true “flock life”?
If so, there is help available to you.
Some of the eagles are gathering together in Western Colorado as I write this. Eagles always fly in the high places!
“Yet those who wait for the LORD Will gain new strength; They will mount up with wings like eagles, They will run and not get tired, They will walk and not become weary. “ Isa 40:31
