A "Mother" Eagle

The Prophecy and Its Latter Day Fulfillment



PROPHECY: "Doth the eagle mount up at thy command, and make HER nest on high? SHE dwelleth and abideth on the rock, upon the crag of the rock, and the strong place. From thence SHE seeketh the prey, and HER eyes behold afar off. HER YOUNG ONES ALSO suck up blood: and where the slain are, there is SHE." Job. 39:27-30


FULFILLMENT: "For wheresoever the CARCASE is, there will the eagles be gathered together." Matt. 24:28

In Genesis 1:2 the Spirit of God is pictured as a Mother Eagle hovering (or, brooding) over HER nest; likewise, in Job. The Spirit in her creative works is depicted as a Mother Eagle. Just as the mother eagle maketh her nest on high (Job 39:27), so does the Spirit abide in the light of God's Throne in Heaven. As the eagle beholds the prey afar off (Job 39:29), so the "eyes of the Lord" run to and fro in the earth (Zech. 4:10).

As "HER young ones ALSO suck up blood; and where the slain are, there is SHE," (Job 39:30), so, likewise, does God's Spirit-filled church gather together to celebrate the Lord"s Supper at the appointed TIMES (of the kill–sacrifice) to "renew their strength...as eagles" (Isa.40:31), for the Lord "satisfieth thy mouth with good things; so that thy youth is RENEWED LIKE THE EAGLE'S" (Ps. 103:5).


EXPLANANTION


Matthew 24, verse 28, refers to the identity of God's church as a body who are symbolized by EAGLES GATHERED TO FEED UPON THE "CARCASS."


DEFINITION


"CARCASS–(b) a LIVE or dead human body. (c) The human body OR a dead corpse." – World Book Dictionary.


To those who partake of the Lord's Supper, discerning His body, ("For he that eateth and drinketh unworthily, eateth and drinketh damnation to himself, not discerning the Lord's body" 1 Cor. 11:19), it is both a symbol of DEATH and LIFE. Therefore, they eat the bread--carcass--(representing the Lord's broken body, His death), and drink the wine--blood (Job 39:30)-- mixed with water as is symbolized by the blood and water which gushed forth from the Lord's side on the cross. The water symbolized the cleansing by the Holy Spirit, a higher cleansing as demonstrated by the ordinance of washing the feet instituted before His death.

"For there shall arise false Christs, and false prophets, and shall shew great signs and wonders; insomuch that, if it were possible., they shall deceive the very elect...Wherefore if they shall say unto you, Behold, he is in the desert; go not forth: behold, he is in the secret chambers [cannot be found]; believe it not.

"For as the lightning cometh out of the east, and shineth even unto the west, so shall also the coming of the Son of man be. For wheresoever the carcase is, there will the eagles be gathered together." Matt. 24:24, 26-28.

The Lord comes to translate the living church on earth, so THERE IS WHERE THE LORD IS TO BE FOUND. THAT IS, WHEREVER THE MOTHER EAGLE, THE HOLY SPIRIT,


- 1 -


GATHERS HER EAGLETS (YOUNG ONES IN THE TRUTH) TOGETHER TO OBSERVE THE LORD'S SUPPER AT THE TIMES POINTED OUT IN THE SYMBOLIC SERVICE OF the earthly Sanctuary, THERE you may, WITHOUT BEING DECEIVED, find your Lord and come in and sup with THEM (Elohim, Hebrew noun, PLURAL).

The invitation is TO ALL, "Come and dine." Come and CELEBRATE the Lord's Supper on TIME, the right Time!

"Where, Lord? And he said unto them, Wheresoever the body is, thither will the eagles be gathered together." Luke 17:37.


"To The Scattered Flock"


"The Holy Ghost this signifying, that the way into the holiest of all was not yet made manifest while as yet the first tabernacle was yet standing. (The Sanctuary in the Wilderness.)

"And over it the cherubim of glory shadowing the mercy seat; of which we cannot now (not then) speak particularly." Heb. 9:8,5.

In the first tabernacle the way into the most holy place was not fully revealed, although it was made after the pattern of the heavenly, as shown unto Moses in the mount as follows: "And thou shalt make the cherubim of gold, of beaten work shalt thou make them, in the two ends of the mercy seat.

"And the cherubim shall stretch forth their wings on high, covering the mercy seat with their wings and their faces shall look one to another; toward the mercy seat shall the faces of the cherubim be.

"And there will I meet with thee, and I will commune with thee, from above the mercy seat, from between the two cherubim which are upon the Ark of the testimony, of all things which I will give thee commandment unto the children of Israel." Exo. 25: 18, 20, 22.

But the pattern given by David to Solomon for the Temple construction made allowance for additional cherubim to be added in the most Holy place of the Sanctuary.

"For the cherubim spread forth their two wings over the place of the Ark, and the cherubim covered the Ark and the Staves thereof above.

"...according to the pattern showed to Moses in the Mount, and afterward presented by the Lord to David."

"In addition to the cherubim on the top of the Ark, Solomon made two other angels of larger size, standing at each end of the Ark representing the heavenly angels always guarding the Law of God. It is impossible to describe the beauty and splendor of this tabernacle. There, as in the tabernacle (Moses'), the sacred Ark was born in solemn, reverential order, and set in its place beneath the wings of the two stately cherubim that stood upon the floor." 4 S.G. 113-14.

"Before Christ left heaven, and came into the world to die, he was taller than any of the angels. He was majestic and lovely." 4SG p. 115.

"But when he ascended upon high, and led a multitude of captives, escorted by the heavenly host, was received in through the gates of the city...he possessed the same exalted stature that he had before he came into the world to die for man...the Father suffered the son to lay aside his glory.. to save fallen man." 4 S.G. p. 119.

"As Joshua withdrew from the armies of Israel, to meditate and pray for God's special presence to attend him, he saw a man, of lofty stature, clad in warlike garments, with his sword drawn in his hand. Joshua did not recognize him as one of the armies of Israel, and yet he had no appearance of being an enemy. In his zeal he accosted him, and said, "Art thou for us or against us...and he said, Nay; but as captain of the host of the Lord am I now come...and the captain of the Lords' host said unto Joshua...the place whereon thou standest is holy. This was no common angel. It was the Lord Jesus Christ, he who had conducted the


- 2 -


Hebrews through the wilderness, enshrouded in the pillar of fire by night, and a pillar of cloud by day–...a token of the "divine presence." 4 S.G. 61.

When the high priest entered within the most holy once a year, and ministered before the Ark in the awful presence of God, he inquired, and God often answered him with an audible voice. When the Lord did not answer by voice, he let sacred beams of light and glory rest upon the cherubim upon the right of the Ark, in approbation or favor. If their requests were refused, a cloud rested upon the cherubim at the left." 4 SG p. 102.

"Four heavenly angels always accompanied the Ark of God in all its journeyings, to guard it from all danger and to fulfill any mission required of them in connection with the Ark. Jesus the son of God, followed by heavenly angels, went before the Ark as it came to Jordan, and the waters were cut off before his presence. Christ and the angels stood by the Ark and the priests in the bed of the river, until all Israel had passed over Jordan. Christ and the angels attended the circuit of the Ark around Jericho, and finally cast down the massive walls of the city, and delivered Jericho into the hands of Israel." 4SG 102.

"The Captain of the Lords' host overcame Jericho. He and his angels (four) were engaged in the conquest. Christ commanded the armies of Heaven to throw down the walls of Jericho,..." 4SG p. 64.


"The Guardian Angels"


"The Four heavenly angels who always accompanied the Ark in its journeyings" were Christ and the Holy Spirit with Michael and Gabriel – captains of the Lord's Hosts.

"...Jesus the Son of God followed by heavenly angels, "went before the Ark,...and the waters were cut off before his PRESENCE (his Holy Spirit)." 4 SG p. 102.

These four angels were pictured in the most Holy place in Solomon's Temple, showing a glimpse of "the way" into the "Holiest of all" (Heb. 9:8). Two large angels standing beside the two ends of the Ark and two upon the Mercy seat--cover of the sacred chest.

"Above the mercy seat was the Shekinah, the manifestation of the divine Presence; and from between the cherubim, God made known His will. (Both Christ and His personal presence sit between the cherubim above the mercy seat-where "mercy" and "Truth" are met together; righteousness and peace have kissed each other)." Ps. 85:10

"No language can describe the glory of the scene presented within the Sanctuary--the gold plated walls reflecting the light..., beyond the second veil the sacred Ark, with its mystic cherubim, and above it the holy Shekinah, the Visible Manifestation of Jehovah's presence; all but a dim reflection of the glories of the temple of God in heaven, the great center of the work for man's redemption" P.P. 349–Praise be to Gods.

The four angels of Rev. 9:14, 15 are the same as the four angels of Revelation 7:2,3 and are representative of the four angels who accompany the Ark in all its journeyings. These angels are those who marshal the hosts of heaven to fight against the enemies of the Israel of God and effect their final Victory over Satan and his host of evil angels. Amen.

In the judgment of the dead (1844) the father and mother of the 144,000 brought forth the work of Michael and Gabriel and their part of holding in check the forces of evil directed against the servants of God.

In the judgment of the Living, the Son and Daughter of the Advent Movement brought to view the work of Christ and the Holy Spirit, The Branch, He and She, and Their work which finally vanquishes Satan and his hosts of evil angels who accuse Israel day and night and claim them as his lawful captives.

A double Intercession (peace offering) is brought to view in the two sets of


- 3 -


angels guarding the Ark containing the Ten Commandments and the Ceremonial Law: primarily, between the two standing on the floor of the "most Holy" place, and secondarily, between the two on the top of the Ark--on the mercy seat, and thirdly, between the two sets of angels the "larger" and the "smaller". The Counsel of Peace is between them "Both". Between Christ and the Holy Spirit and between Michael and Gabriel, and finally, between God and Their two angels. "Thus, Four Guardian Angels."

"For thou hast been strength to the poor, a strength to the needy in his distress, a refuge from the storm, a shadow from the heat, when the blast of the terrible ones is as a storm against the wall.

"...let him take hold of my strength, that he may make peace with me; and he shall make peace with me." Isaiah 25:4; 27:5.

So be it!

Yours, In the Ministry of the Angels,

Lois I. Roden
