The Place Called Sanctuary

I saw what looked like a zoo that had various types of eagles in each cage with very little room within the cage they had limited food, water, and care.

I had vision of seeing eagles in various conditions.

As I looked I saw what looked like a zoo that had various types of eagles in each cage with very little room within the cage they had limited food, water, and care.

While the people would look and see them some would poke at them and make fun of them.  Others would look with compassion and sadness as these truly saw the end result of that eagle.

What I noticed in the eyes of these eagles they seemed like they had absolute hopelessness, despair, and were wearied, and diminished.

These eagles seemed small and their feathers were shed and unkempt as they seemed stunted in growth.  Their eyes were so empty with seemingly no reason but to exist in their environment.

This was so apparent to me of the condition of many fallen eagles.  They did not thrive in their cages nor could they fly up to the sky in their current environments.

The eagle’s element is to mount up into the sky and soar on the winds of their wings.

I saw many wounded eagles being lifted up from the earth with eagles’ wings that brought the wounded to the place of sanctuary.  The wounded and broken had thought they were finished and thought they would never feel free again.

Then I saw a very large sanctuary for eagles.  The very large sanctuary was fully enclosed and had all types of vegetation yet you could see far through it.

As I was looking up this a great NET covered the top of this sanctuary so that nothing could come in or go out as it was set up to protect the eagles.

I did see many eagles with broken and clipped wings, and some during their advanced healing wanted to be released now but their wings hadn’t been restored yet and healed properly.  Only the Master knew the time for total release.

The eagles that tried to fly before the time would attempt to mount up and get caught twisted up and entangled by the great NET-work over the sanctuary.

The great NET-work was designed by God for the “catch of the day.”  The great NET-working of this vast sanctuary protects the various eagles that are healing, grounded, and wounded.

Most of the eagles had been coaxed to the ground by bait to be caught off guard.  These coaxed to the ground suffered severely through the various attacks of the predator of man and man’s restraints and agenda.

Man is the greatest predator of the eagle by causing “these eagles to be endangered species.”  These attacked eagles fell from fear and became so vulnerable and weak that they could have easily been picked off and destroyed.

In this sanctuary I witnessed various eagles at different levels of rank, authority, and healing, that were being impatient with the process.  At times it was hard not to do what was prior to their brokenness.

It took time for the eagles to comprehend what happened to them during their trauma.  They had to understand that the Master brought them to this place of provision, vision and deep healing.

Although these impatient ones would get entangled, it was actually a benefit to these eagles to be entangled in the NET-work.

The NET-work linked so many together that would watch and could capture the eagle before it was time to be released.  And what “seemed like a bad thing” was actually a very good thing.

The NET-work is designed to reap the harvest and protect the body.  In this vast and the very great NET-work many were linked together to help protect, serve and preserve the purpose of the eagles.

Although the eagles were wounded through the very attacks by man; and though it was really traumatic, it actually caused a greater resolve and determination to develop deeply in the soul of the eagle.

I could see into the various experiences of wounded and clipped eagles and what they endured.  I marveled at how the Master created such a refuge and hidden place for eagles.

Many of the eagles were so wounded and broken they couldn’t see and these thought they would actually die.  The divine revelation that came to the eagles after realizing that the Master had them in divine custody and protection was shocking.

During the beginning of trauma, they lashed out as they thought they would die being so vulnerable.

The eagle’s strength and stronghold of defense is the currents of the winds of the Word of God high up in the sky above the clouds where they are meant to see from afar.  The danger of the eagle is to remain earth bound too long in capturing prey.

Man baited below by ensnaring traps attempting to destroy the eagle’s credibility by baiting them with events, twists, and turns even to their own dismay.

The eagles that struggled fell prey to man’s agenda.  It was during the twisting and attempts to breaking free that actually became the means of twisting and breaking the wings even further.

Their wings of eagles are their source of up draft to the sky, not to be kept earth bound.

The predator man and man’s opinion, thought to ensnare and to lurk about in the shadows ready to maim and keep the eagles earth bound and grounded.  This wasn’t all the predators wanted.

Their goal was to totally destroy the eagle’s credibility and keep them from ever fulfilling their destiny.

All of us like the eagle have the desire to fulfill our destiny and to live in our element that we were created for.  We are meant to exist wild and free!

Free to be who we are Christ and wild without care of abandonment in the Holy Ghost so that we mount up radically against any and all constraints of man.

“Hast thou not known? hast thou not heard, that the everlasting God, the LORD, the Creator of the ends of the earth, fainteth not, neither is weary? there is no searching of his understanding. giveth power to the faint; and to them that have no might he increaseth strength. Even the youths shall faint and be weary, and the young men shall utterly fall: But they that wait upon the LORD shall renew their strength; they shall mount up with wings as eagles; they shall run, and not be weary; and they shall walk, and not faint,”    Isaiah 40:28-31 KJV.
