I heard The LORD speak to me once again — something that He seems to say quite often to me when He wants my full attention.
He certainly got my attention when He said, “Take heed how you hear! Open up your heart!
It is GATHERING of the EAGLES time and Strategic orders are being given and the results HINGE on total obedience.”
He continued to say, “Just as the hinges on a door require oil to swing open widely with ease, so does the door of your heart need the oil of willing obedience to take HEED.
I AM speaking to My Eagles. I AM sending orders to rise up! It is time to soar! Those who wait upon The LORD are receiving new strength, they will run and not be weary, they will walk and not faint.”
I can almost hear some saying, “Oh, I know that…!” but The LORD is saying, “Take heed to My Word. It is is not a new Word but a fresh command to understand what it means to “Mount up,” for until My Word becomes Rhema and personal to you, it is just another word in your head and not your heart.”
As I watched a recent video of an eagle mounting up, there is no way to describe the sound of the power behind those wings as these giant birds take off.
The look of determination and extreme focus in their eyes is awe inspiring and really gives new understanding to what it means to “MOUNT with wings like eagles….”
My heart is continually heavy as I pray for leaders and as I seek the heart of the Father for what is on HIS heart.
I am asking The LORD to open up the eyes of our understanding and remove the scales from our eyes that we would understand the power available to us.
We must learn to wait upon Him…. that we would embrace that powerful focus and receive the vision of the eagle’s eye and lift our wings and SOAR!
We are in a critical time of waiting upon Him and intentionally listening to Him.
I have been hearing The LORD contrast offense and defense, keeping offenses and knowing what to do but not truly embracing fully the freedom He has provided by changing the way we think.
These were the Words I heard: “Sometimes the speck in the other persons eye is made of the same material as the plank in your eye… that’s why you can see it..”..
The LORD pointed that out to me in 2008 after I the election. Now, as we stand before Him once again asking for revival, asking for restoration of all that is lost, as well as a healing for our land, I am once again finding myself thinking on these things and the things that paralyze our faith and keep us at a standstill in much of our spiritual warfare.
I realize now more than ever that, it really applies to all of us as we endeavor to walk hand in hand with a Holy God. We are active partakers in the return of Holiness unto The LORD.
Beloved, there are some things that are working death in us that we have allowed in and they have become so familiar with us that they are now a part of who we “think we are” and what we accept and think cannot be changed.
“I set before you life and death,” says The LORD. “Choose life. Many are asking for healing but agreeing with death.”
We cannot say one thing and act out another. We must THINK before we SPEAK. We must embrace the mind of Christ.
Although the bible instructs us in WHAT to think about, it is still our choice to apply it.
Finally, brethren, whatever things are true, noble, just, pure, lovely, good report and if there is any virtue or anything praiseworthy — meditate on these things.
Change is here and we too must Change our thoughts.
Additionally, we are empowered by the Word to change the WAY we think or see things. i.e. our very perspective — from our perspective to HIS.
We must not be conformed beloved, but we must be transformed. Renewal starts with the renewed mind.
Assumption, presumption and opinions must not enter in as we see from and embrace the perspective of The LORD.
I certainly am not here to preach or judge anyone but to sincerely ask a question. When offenses come AND THEY WILL, if we allow offense to stay in our hearts, the next thing that usually follows is justification.
We must lift up the shield of Faith and allow no offense to be a roadblock to our walk of Faith.
When we defend our actions by simply responding out of feeling and human reasoning, or when we express our rights or our entitlement to be offended, we are giving our carnal mind the right of way and giving the enemy opportunity to destroy our lives.
The critical question is: How will we react when offense comes?
Will our reactions bring blessing, anointing, and the goodness of God or will they bring a curse?
We must guard your hearts, be careful what we hear, and watch with a single eye.
It is the hour of the Gathering Eagles! Mount up!
