This morning I saw a great word from Johnny Enlow about how "Eagles Will Gather and Eagles Will be Released" in the Northwest. All I can say is amen as it is so very similar to other prophetic words marked with signs and wonders as we mobilized the Church through Operation Rolling Thunder. Amos 3:7 says:
Surely the Lord God does nothing, Unless He reveals His secret to His servants the prophets. NKJV
Prophets see further off and the closer the timing gets the more prophets that see and proclaim a similar word. This should be very encouraging for there is a principle in God's word' "in the mouth of two or three witnesses, let every word be established."
This is not the first word regarding the gathering and releasing of eagles. This is just the most recent from a prominently recognized prophet. The first time I heard the word was in 2003 on the 50 state tour when Dutch Sheets and Chuck Pierce came to Washington State. Among other things they declared that this was an "eagle state."
I want to share with you some more prophetic words that were confirmed with signs and wonders in 2006 and 2007. I'm summarizing this from my first release of "Opertion Rolling Thunder" on page 130.
Why does it seem like the world is going crazy? Matthew 24:12 sheds some light as to why.
"And because lawlessness will abound, the love of many will grow cold. " NKJV
The Greek word translated lawlessness here means "illegal violation of the law, wickedness, iniquity, and unrighteousness. It comes from a word that means lawless." It is either breaking established boundaries or operating outside of boundaries wether knowingly or in ignorance.
The word abound means multiply and the word translated love refers to the "agape" unconditional love of God.
The word translated "cold" is fascinating and sheds tremendous light. The Greek word translated cold is actually "psycho." In the Greek it means to breathe on something so as to reduce the tempature or make it cool. This word also serves as the basis for our modern understanding of "psycho" used in words such as a psychopathic or psychotic person. Dictionary.com says these are crazy or mentally unstable.
Matthew 24:12 means "and because lawlessness, people acting as if there are no absolutes, boundaries or eternal laws, continue to multply their love for God wains and they act like they've lost their mind doing crazy things."
The truth is without the love of God people go crazy and do stupid things. Sin makes people stupid. Stupid refers to a dulled, foolish or senseless mind.
The office of prophet is likened unto that of a watchman in Ezekiel. Scripturally we see there are three ways that God anoints prophets with a spirit of revelation to gather what I like to call "spiritual intelligence." First, God can speak directly to a prophet audibly, internally, or through a vision or a dream just like the Lord spoke to Elisha sharing with him the Syrian King's war strategies (2 Kings 6:12, 2 Kings 7:1). Second, God can speak through research and give direction like He did Daniel as he studied the book of Jeremiah (Dan. 9). Finally, God can give insight through prayer walking just like the Apostle Paul recieved revelation about how to present the gospel to the Athenians in Acts 17 using the statue of the Unknown God he'd seen as he wandered through the city.
I'm going to use our recent trip to Burma to illustrate how we constantly seek to gather and utilize spiritual intelligence.
During the second part of our journey to Myanmar (Burma) we stayed in Yangon. As we walked through the city made several observations. I will only share two. First, we saw Shwedagon Pagoda. The term "dagon" stood out immediately. Second, we saw the Lion Throne in the National Museum. We learned that the Lion throne was only ascended by the king when judicial decrees were to be made. This is clearly a counterfiet throne. It is a counterfiet of the Lion of the Tribe of Judah.
