Releasing the Prophetic Eagles


Theresa Phillips:
Releasing the Prophetic Eagles
I love it when the elements get my attention and speak to me. Nature listens to God then reveals it to us...I LOVE THAT! In early June, while on a missions trip, I noticed a bald eagle in Indiana that was training her young to fly. I was watching her as she dropped her wing and loosed the baby, and then swooped it up again, going higher and higher, repeating the scene. As I looked toward the treetops, I realized they were not far from their nest. The momma eagle was safe, but she was teaching her young to fly.

I then heard the Lord speak to me: "Tell your people they will fly and soar like never before."
I shared this, and then a few days later I was driving with my husband to a meeting and there was another bald eagle teaching her young to fly. Again, this got my attention. This time I saw the nest in the treetops and I saw that there was a body of water nearby.

Again the Lord spoke: "Theresa, you are a momma eagle and you are teaching your young leaders to fly."
I then became undone.

He spoke again: "Theresa, the new young eagles are coming forth. They will be fed by the Spirit of the Lord. They will soar into high places, and they will declare the realm of the prophetic to many who have not heard it before. These new prophets will have been taught through powerful winds of justice and righteousness that are declared in the Holy Writ! You will begin to see the youth of the Church arise. These young will want to just hang out with leaders who have gone on before them. Let them. Take them under your wing. I am opening up the hearts of leaders to flow in the know-how to grow in the presence of God!

"A new passion in the realm of justice will emerge over the next six months. Prophetic justice. Truth will be released through revelation, through dreams, and through utterance.
"I am sending the youth to grow up with healthy spiritual mothers and fathers. I will bring healing to the Body of Christ who have felt like orphans. I am releasing the leaders to lead once again like knights of the realm of the King. They will cry as one and they will emerge as a force of power, might, love, grace, and humility. I will put in the hearts of My people honor, justice, and righteousness. This has already begun..."

The Bald Eagle

I then wondered, Why the bald eagle, Lord? Why? I am fully aware of the living creature that is the eagle spoken of in the Word around God's throne (Revelation 4). But...? I am also aware the eagle represents prophetic people, but the American bald eagle?

"The bald eagle (Haliaeetus leucocephalus), our national bird, is the only eagle unique to North America. The bald eagle's scientific name signifies a sea (halo) eagle (aeetos) with a white (leukos) head. At one time, the word "bald" meant "white," not hairless. Bald eagles are found throughout most of North America, from Alaska and Canada to northern Mexico. About half of the world's 70,000 bald eagles live in Alaska. Combined with British Columbia's population of about 20,000, the northwest coast of North America is by far their greatest stronghold for bald eagles..." []

Then the Lord spoke to me again: "This bald eagle represents the mature, the wisdom, and the glory of the 'movement' that has just begun. The new eaglets represent the need to be near the momma eagle until she releases them to GO. The eaglets also represent the new hidden ones who have been kept for such a time as this. These new 'prophetic eagles' will not be afraid to soar in the heights of spheres of influence. They will be 'connected' to local houses of worship, for they will have learned that they need accountability. Get ready, for this wave is soon upon the earth, and it will move very fast."

A few days after, I heard the following word. I was in my garden and I looked up, and I saw something that astounded me – an American bald eagle flew over the top of my garden. While I stood there in amazement, I heard this: "It's begun; I am releasing the eagles to fly."
I looked about me and I noticed this eagle as out of its normal place of habitation. Then I heard this:
"Go and tell My servant David, 'Thus saith the LORD, "Shalt thou build Me an house for Me to dwell in?"'" (2 Samuel 7:5).

I looked around my garden; I noticed the atmosphere was very still. I felt a holy hush enter in. I wept for a few moments at the powerful visitation and teaching with instruction I had received. I then heard a whisper to my spirit, "Be not afraid. Be not afraid. The young ones will return to nest in your habitation, and they too will train up eagles. Be not afraid. Be not afraid, O leader, O preacher, O prophet, O apostle, O evangelist. Just equip the Body. Be not afraid, for I AM with you even unto the end of the age."

Matthew 28:16-20 (KJV) Then the eleven disciples went away into Galilee, into a mountain where Jesus had appointed them [eagles love mountains]. And when they saw Him, they worshipped Him: but some doubted. And Jesus came and spake unto them, saying, "All power is given unto Me in Heaven and in earth. Go ye therefore, and teach all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Ghost: teaching them to observe all things whatsoever I have commanded you: and, lo, I am with you always, even unto the end of the world. Amen." (Note added by writer.)

Let us say a simple prayer: Jesus, You have said in Your Word that we must desire to prophesy. I desire that we all prophesy. I pray for those mothers and fathers who will disciple the many – the thousands of new emerging leaders. I pray for steadfastness, sure footing, and unwavering faith. I ask that You guide, direct, and reveal the possibilities to all new converts and to the young. I pray the mature will be free to love, guide, and release. O Jesus, mighty One of Heaven, bless Your Church and Your prophetess with a FRESH release of wisdom and revelation. I ask Your love to be filling the land with grace to GROW. In Jesus' name, amen.

Please Pray For Evangelist Billy Graham

Evangelist Billy Graham in hospital with infection

ASHEVILLE, N.C. –  A spokesman for Billy Graham says the 93-year-old evangelist has been admitted to a North Carolina hospital for an infection in his lungs.

A joint statement Sunday from Graham's spokesman and Mission Hospital says Graham was admitted overnight for evaluation and treatment of an infection thought to be bronchitis. The hospital is in Asheville, near his home in Montreat.

Pulmonologist David Pucci says Graham is resting comfortably and his condition is stable. He is receiving antibiotics.

Graham spokesman Larry Ross says the evangelist was able to watch a television feed of his grandson, Will Graham, preaching on Sunday morning.

Graham was hospitalized for pneumonia last November. His staff says the evangelist's health has been good since his release, though he remains at home due to age-related conditions. He is working on a manuscript for an upcoming book

Marriage, One Man, One Woman

Marriage, One Man, One Woman

The church has struggled much on standing up for biblical truth and defending it. The scriptures tells us you have not yet resisted to the point of shedding blood in the contest against sin. Heb. 12:4 (CJB) Jesus was hated and hung on the cross because men could not bear the truth that He spoke and because God had a plan to redeem mankind.  Many times they tried to kill Him and yet until the appointed time He was able to walk through the crowd and out of harm's way. At the appointed time He laid down His life with sacrificial love for all mankind.
Standing as a believer is something that we cannot do in our own strength.  A line is being drawn in the sand where we are having to decide whose side we are on.  Will we stand wholeheartedly for the Word of God amid the storms that are raising their ugly head?  Issues are coming up where we are being challenged to come to a new level of faith and commitment.  Will we keep silent or will we speak the truth in love, calling sin as the Word of God calls it?

In the United States we have heard of the battle over righteousness in believing that marriage is between one man and one woman.  Canada's laws  have already been changed and many have chosen the path that they will follow. How did this very basic fundamental truth about marriage that is basic to our survival as a people come under such erosion by the enemy?  How is it that man cannot see and know that a man and woman made in the image of God were created to marry and procreate and that no other two species except male and female can bring the fruit of the womb. 

27 So God created humankind in his own image; in the image of God he created him:
male and female he created them. 28 God blessed them: God said to them, “Be fruitful, multiply, fill the earth and subdue it. Rule over the fish in the sea, the birds in the air and every living creature that crawls on the earth.” Genesis 1:27 (CJB)

Men are calling good evil and evil good.  As it was in the days of Noah so it will be in the days of the coming of the Son of Man.  The Lord spoke about the condition of men's hearts then and they are the same today.   He is not willing that any should perish but all should come to the truth.  His love for mankind took Him to the cross where He suffered, died and rose again that we might be set free from our sin and that we might come to know Him.

One day all will give an account of how they lived there lives here on this earth.  Were we holy as He is Holy?  Did we walk in truth and righteousness?  Did we speak the truth in love and stand as that watchman on the wall who was called to speak so that the blood of another would not be on his hands?

Have you spoken when it is uncomfortable, unpopular and would cost you something dear.  Have you dared to speak the whole counsel when led of the Holy Spirit to do so?  We are living in times like the days of Noah, eating, drinking, getting married and going about business as usual.

We need to take a stand now for what we believe.  Daily the rights of those of precious faith are under attack.  Let Christ in you arise and be fortified in His Word.  We are told that the day will come when all will hate you and we do not like to think about this.  One can feel the spiritual climate changing daily and we need to guard our relationship with Jesus. We are to love the sinner, pray for them, but come out from among them and be separate.  It is only as you live a separated life that you will  have eyes to see and ears to hear what the Spirit of God is saying to the church. 

Recently in sharing that someone was getting married, a person asked the question, "to a man or woman", in jesting.  This shows how the truth of God's word has been rejected to suit the sin of man rather than man allowing God to move on His heart that He might follow Jesus. Taking up our cross daily and following Him is becoming increasingly difficult and unpopular. Yet there is no option for the true follower of Christ.  Let us be willing to daily take up our cross and follow Jesus. 

The word of Adonai came to me: “Human being, speak to your people; say to them, ‘Suppose I bring the sword on a country, and the people of that country take one of their men and appoint him their watchman. Now if, upon seeing the sword coming against that country, he blows the shofar and warns the people; then, if the sword comes and takes away someone who heard the sound of the shofar but paid no attention to it, the responsibility for that person’s death will be his own — he heard the shofar but paid no attention, so the responsibility for his death is his own; whereas if he had paid attention, he would have saved his life. But if the watchman sees the sword coming and does not blow the shofar, so that the people are not warned; and then the sword comes and takes any one of them, that one is indeed taken away in his guilt, but I will hold the watchman responsible for his death.’
“Likewise you, human being — I have appointed you as watchman for the house of Isra’el. Therefore, when you hear the word from my mouth, warn them for me. When I tell the wicked person, ‘Wicked person, you will certainly die’; and you fail to speak and warn the wicked person to leave his way; then that wicked person will die guilty; and I will hold you responsible for his death. On the other hand, if you warn the wicked to turn from his way, and he doesn’t turn from his way; then he will still die guilty, but you will have saved your own life. Ezekiel 33:1-7 (CJB)
