“They will soar on wings like eagles.”
The imagery of soaring eagles has inspired mankind for generations. This banner portrays an eagle soaring across a dark blue sky. Its dark brown and tan plumage represents God's power and strength, which can be reflected in His people. It speaks of moving up against the storms of life, using them to go higher and being called by God to go even higher.
The eagle actually appears to soar, circling over the head of the worshippers. The hovering, protective aspect is highlighted in this banner.
Name of the LORD:
YHWH El Elyon The Lord, The Most High God
The characteristics of this birds are frequently referred to in the Bible -its swiftness (Job 39: 28, 29; 2 Samuel 1:23), its building in high cliffs (Jeremiah 49:16), its powerful sight (Job 39; Deuteronomy 32:11), its great powers of flight (Proverbs 30:19) and its teaching its young to fly (Deuteronomy 32:11).
God's powerful redemption is likened to being lifted on the wings of an eagle in Exodus 19:4 and His caring protection is described as an eagle hovering over her young in Deuteronomy 32:11. Gods ability and strength to support us is beautifully portrayed as being lifted on the wings of an eagle in Isaiah 40:31.
Even thought the eagle is a majestic bird, God is the King over eagles. Job 39:27. His judgment is likened to an eagle swooping on its prey. It is swift, sudden and sure. Jeremiah 48:40, 49:22, Hosea 8:1.
The Eagle is one of the four living creatures in the vision of heaven (Ezekiel 1:10; Revelation 4:7)
