“I carried you on eagles wings and brought you to Myself.”
The imagery of soaring eagles has inspired mankind for generations. This banner portrays an eagle soaring across a pale blue sky. Its light brown and pink plumage represents the lightless of being carried up and away in an act of redemption, a metaphor described in Exodus 19:4.
The eagle actually appears to soar, circling over the worshippers' heads. The hovering, protective aspect is highlighted in this banner.
Name of the LORD:
Elohay Marom God of Heights
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)
