Flying Soaring Wings

October 15, 2015

Thinking about the wings of the dove and the wings of an eagle soaring through the clouds. The Lord reminded me of something He inspired me to do in the past. I made the following image. (See the Lion of Judah behind the clouds?)

A beautiful eagle is lifted high, soaring in the clouds. The royal Lion of Judah is in the background, supplying the wind (the roar), the power, the breath of the Spirit beneath the eagle’s wings.

The soaring eagle, it’s the eagle of (Is 40:28-31), the promise that those who hope in the Lord will renew their strength and not grow weary. They will soar on wings like eagles. Placing all hope and trust in the Lord, waiting on Him, this is how one soars. This is also a key step in worship, in entering the Lord’s courts, His sanctuary, the secret place, His manifest presence (Ps 100; Ps 91:1-4). He inhabits, is enthroned on the praises of His people (Ps 22:3;Ex 15:2;Rv 5:6,9-13;Ps 40:1-3). The Lord himself guides those who trust in Him to this place where He dwells (Ps 43). The Lord prepares and draws those who have clean hands and pure willing hearts to this secret place (Ps 24).

The secret place is also the place of rest, the dove longs to fly away to. The place before the throne where prophecy happens(Ps 55:6;Ps 68:8,13). A place of spiritual wisdom and vision seen in the eyes of both the eagle and dove(Is 40:28;1 Cor 2:7-10;Ps 32:7-8). A place of double portion(Is 61). A place of freedom in the Spirit of the Lord! (2 Cor 3:17) SOAR!!!!!

Isaiah 61:6-7 – Double Portion
You will be called the priests of the LORD;
You will be spoken of as ministers of our God.
You will eat the wealth of nations,
And in their glory{honour} you will boast.
Instead of your shame you shall have double honor,
And instead of confusion they shall rejoice in their portion.
Therefore in their land they shall possess double;
Everlasting joy shall be theirs.

Lion of Judah ROAR!

February 18, 2015

Joel 3:16 AMP
16 The Lord will thunder and roar from Zion and utter His voice from Jerusalem, and the heavens and the earth shall shake; but the Lord will be a refuge for His people and a stronghold to the children of Israel.

1 Samuel 2:10 AMP
10 The adversaries of the Lord shall be broken to pieces; against them will He thunder in heaven. The Lord will judge [all peoples] to the ends of the earth; and He will give strength to His king (King) and exalt the power of His anointed (Anointed His Christ).

Psalm 29:4 AMP
4 The voice of the Lord is powerful; the voice of the Lord is full of majesty.

From: A Mighty Thunderous Roar {Article}

All will tremble at the roar of the Lion of Judah (Amos 3:8). To those who contend with the Lord, His roar will show His wrath (Prov 19:12, 20:2). They will tremble in terror. But to those who belong to the Lord it will be protection. They will tremble in awe and respect gathered like protected children around Him.

A song:
Rise up O Lord, rise up
Rise up O Lord, rise up
Num10:35;Ps68:1-2

From the secret place of thunder
Rise up
Lion of Judah
ROAR!

From the secret place of thunder
ROAR!
A glorious mighty thunderous
ROAR!

Rise up O Lord, rise up
Rise up O Lord, rise up
Lion of Judah
ROAR!

Psalm 81:7 AMP
7 You called in distress and I delivered you; I answered you in the secret place of thunder; I tested you at the waters of Meribah. Selah [pause, and calmly think of that]!

From NetBible Ps 81:7

  • secret place[05643] = hiding place, covering, protection, shelter
  • *The name Meribah means “strife.” Two separate but similar incidents at the place called Meribah are recorded in the Pentateuch (Exod 17:1-7Num 20:1-13). In both cases the Israelites complained about lack of water and the Lord miraculously provided for them.

The Lord answers the cry of His children
From Zion, the secret place of His thunder
With His mighty, thunderous ROAR!
His ROAR of refuge and protection for His children
A terrifying ROAR to His enemies.

Zion is the Lord’s dwelling place
Zion is where the Lord is enthroned on the praises of His children.

From my article ‘Ascending Mount Zion‘, we saw that the center of the throne is where the Lord is enthroned on the praises of His people. God’s throne, His dwelling place, Zion, is encircled by those singing a new song, it’s here in this atmosphere of praise where the Lamb stands high and lifted up(Rev 5:6, 9-13).

From my article ‘Rise Up, O LORD!‘, Arise found in Psalm 132 links Zion with the Lord’s eternal resting place.

Psalm 132:7-9, 13-14 … Let us go into His dwelling place; Let us worship at His footstool. Arise[06965], O LORD, to Your resting place, You and the ark of Your strength. Let Your priests be clothed with righteousness, and let Your saints shout for joy. … 
… The LORD has chosen Zion; He has desired it for His habitation. This is My resting place forever; Here I will dwell, for I have desired it.

From: A Mighty Thunderous Roar
Awake the dawn {awake a time of deliverance/vindication}
Join the mighty thunderous roar
Let the triumph of praise be heard!

Deuteronomy 28:7 AMP
7 The Lord shall cause your enemies who rise up against you to be defeated before your face; they shall come out against you one way and flee before you seven ways.

The Secret Place of Thunder

July 29, 2011

Psalm 81:7In your distress you called and I rescued you, I answered you in the secret place of thunder; I proved you at the waters of Meribah. Selah.

Psalm 50:15,23

  • NASB … Call upon Me in the day of trouble; I shall rescue you, and you will honor Me. … He who offers a sacrifice of thanksgiving honors Me; And to him who orders his way aright I shall show the salvation of God.
  • NLT … Trust me in your times of trouble, and I will rescue you, and you will give me glory. … But giving thanks is a sacrifice that truly honors me. If you keep to my path, I will reveal to you the salvation of God.

A Mighty Roar

August 25, 2010

Daniel 6:27 He rescues and He saves; He performs signs and wonders in the heavens and on the earth. He has rescued Daniel from the power of the lions.

I was feeling a little like I was in the lion’s den,
surrounded by hungry roaring lions that seemed ready to devour and swallow me up. -Jere 51:38

The Lord encouraged me with this thought –
No matter how big those hungry lions seem or how loud they roar –
He the LORD, the Lion of Judah is bigger!
He has triumphed!

Take heart, be of good courage -Ps 27:13-14
Trust in the LORD your God
Be drawn under His wing
Trust Him to quiet, renew and refresh your soul
In the midst of the lions den
He is mighty to save
His roar is bigger!

“Hallelujah! For our Lord God Almighty reigns.” -Rev 19:6
The Lion of Judah in victory reigns! -Rev 5:5

Zephaniah 3:17 The LORD your God is with you{in your midst}, He is mighty to save. He will take great delight in you, He will quiet{renew, refresh, bring into rest) you with His love, He will rejoice over you with singing.

Psalm 57:1-5, 7 Be merciful to me, O God, be merciful to me!
For my soul trusts in You;
And in the shadow of Your wings I will make my refuge,
Until these calamities have passed by.
I will cry out to God Most High,
To God who performs all things for me.
He shall send from heaven and save me;
He reproaches the one who would swallow me up. Selah
God shall send forth His mercy and His truth.
My soul is among lions;
I lie among the sons of men
Who are set on fire,
Whose teeth are spears and arrows,
And their tongue a sharp sword.
Be exalted, O God, above the heavens;
Let Your glory be above all{over} the earth.

 

My heart is steadfast, O God, my heart is steadfast;
I will sing, yes, I will sing praises!
