“Look! An eagle will soar and swoop down”
This banner portrays an eagle rapidly descending from the heights of heaven to the earth below. The eagle’s open talons represent action in battle while the spread of its wings shows might and majesty. Its dark brown and tan plumage represents God's power and strength, which can be reflected in His people.
God’s judgment has been described as an eagle swooping on its prey, striking fear into the hearts of those waiting below (Jeremiah 49:22). This banner represents the stunning magnificence of an eagle, as God prepares to do battle on behalf of His saints.
Name of the LORD:
El HaShamayim The God of The Heavens
The characteristics of eagles 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).
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)
