Traits of the Eagle and How It Pertains To Our Christian Walk

As I have stated in my article, “God is the Potter, We are the Clay,” whenever God gives you a specific analogy in the Bible, what He wants you to do is to seek into what the analogy is all about so you can fully understand what He is trying to convey to you.

In the verse that God is the potter and we are the clay, what you have to do is find out exactly how pottery is made before you can see the correlation between how the potter forms and molds out the clay into the piece of pottery he is looking to make, and how God wants to mold, shape, and transform us in this life as we continue to grow in His knowledge, grace, and power.

The Eagle Analogy And Our Christian Walk

Another very powerful analogy that the Lord has hidden back in His Word in the Old Testament is what I call the eagle analogy. Here is the verse where this specific analogy is being given to us by the Lord:

“But those who wait on the Lord shall renew their strength; they shall mount up with wings like eagles, they shall run and not be weary, they shall walk and not faint.” (Isaiah 40:31)

The two key words in this verse are that we will mount up with wings “like eagles.” The Original King James Version uses the words “as eagles.”

I believe God is trying to tell us something when He compares all of us to eagles in this particular verse. I remember when I first saw this verse years ago, it really jumped off the page at me.

Several years ago, I did a study of eagles and their personality traits to see if there were any personality traits that were inherent in the eagle that God wanted us to have with Him.

After finding out exactly what personality traits eagles do have, I came to the conclusion that God was definitely trying to convey some additional knowledge to all of us as to what additional qualities He would like all of us to have worked into our personalities.

The other thing I noticed, starting about 10-15 years ago, is that there were a lot of eagle pictures and eagle statues in many of the Christian bookstores, with all of them coming off the above verse.

Again, I believe God is trying to draw all of us into this specific verse so we can find out exactly what He is trying to tell us with the revelation that is contained in it.

I believe this analogy to be an extremely powerful and profound analogy, and that it fully applies to each and every Christian.

I will list, one by one, the main qualities and traits of the eagle, along with giving you the basic gist of what this analogy is all about.

1. The Basic Gist of The Eagle Analogy

The first thing you need to know about eagles so you can fully understand what the basic gist of this analogy is all about is exactly how they are able to fly, with most of it being on how they are able to soar without actually flapping their wings.

I am sure most of you have seen videos and documentaries of eagles being caught on video soaring high up in the sky without actually flapping their wings.

Their wings are spread straight out and they are literally soaring with perfect ease on the wind currents.

Eagles are born with big and heavy wings, and part of the survival mechanism they are born with is that they have to learn how to fly without actually flapping their big wings.

They have to learn how to do this in order to conserve energy. Eagles can literally die if they expend too much energy flapping their wings during flight as versus soaring without flapping their wings.

As a result, what eagles have to learn to do very early on in order to be able to soar without flapping their wings, is to wait for what are called wind thermals to come up on them. A wind thermal is a big gust of wind that will rise up from the atmosphere.

Sometimes eagles will remain perched for days before they can catch a good, strong, wind thermal, where they can then launch onto it and combine a mixture of flying and soaring on that strong wind thermal to get them to where they want to go.

Now here is the basic gist of this whole analogy. Lock this into your memory banks, as God is giving us a very powerful analogy on how eagles basically fly and soar on these wind thermals.

  • We are the eagle
  • The wings of the eagles represent our faith and belief in God
  • The wind thermals the eagles fly on represent the Holy Spirit

Another very powerful verse to add to this analogy is the following:

“Not by might, nor by power, but by My Spirit,” says the Lord. (Zechariah 4:6)

What God is trying to tell us in this verse is that all things will get fully accomplished for Him in this life by the power of the Holy Spirit operating through us, not by our own power or by our own might.

Just like the eagle has to learn how to fly on the wind thermals – we, as born-again, Spirit-filled Christians, have to learn how to fly on the power of the Holy Spirit in our lives.

In other words, we have to learn how to walk and fly with the anointing of God.

The anointing of God is the power of the Holy Spirit flowing and operating through us to accomplish what God wants us to do for Him in this life.

It is God’s power flowing and operating through us, not our own power. Our power is weak and limited, but God’s power is pure and absolute.

We have to learn two basic things if we want to successfully complete all of the divine missions that God has in store for us in this life:

  • How to be led by the Holy Spirit
  • And how to walk with His anointing operating through us so we can fully accomplish all of our divine destiny for the Lord

If you do not learn how to be led by the Holy Spirit in your daily life, then you will never find out exactly what God is going to call you to do for Him in this life.

You will never find out who your true soulmate is going to be in this life, and you will never fulfill the divine destiny to which God has called you.

Just like the eagle has to learn how to catch the wind thermal in order to survive in this world, we have to learn how to be led by the Holy Spirit on a daily basis so we can fully accomplish everything God that will want us to accomplish for Him in this life.

And just like the eagle has to learn how to ride and navigate on those wind thermals once they actually launch onto them, we have to learn how to walk with the power of the Holy Spirit operating through us so we can fully accomplish the tasks and assignments that God will be calling us to do for Him in this life.

If we learn how to be led by the Holy Spirit so we can get to where God will want to take us to – but we do not learn how to actually walk and flow with His actual power, then we will never succeed at the specific tasks that He will be calling us to do for Him.

If God calls someone to be a great evangelist and then leads him to the exact spots where He will want him to work at, but that person does not learn how to flow and walk with God’s anointing on him, then he will have minimal success at best in that specific calling.

Again, not by our might or by our power, but by the power of the Holy Spirit operating through us is how we will produce good fruit for the Lord in this life.

The third thing we must catch on this analogy besides the fact that we are the eagle and the wind thermals represents the Holy Spirit, is what the wings of the eagle represent

The wings of the eagle represent our faith and belief in in the Lord.

Bottom line – if we do not have enough faith and belief in God to take flight on the Holy Spirit in order to be led and empowered by Him for service to the Lord, then nothing will ever happen.

We will forever stay perched, and we will never fulfill the divine destiny that God has already planned out for our lives before we were even born into our mother’s womb.

The eagle has to take that big leap off the edge of the cliff in order to be able to fly and soar on those wind thermals.

If the eagle does not take flight on those wind thermals when they do come up on him, he will forever stay perched and he will die on the cliff due to starvation.

In the same way, if we do not take flight on the Holy Spirit and the divine call that God has placed on our lives, our lives will perish right before our very eyes, as the Bible tells us that God’s people will perish without having His specific vision for their lives.

Sooner or later, every single Christian will have to make that big choice for their lives. Who will they decide to serve and follow in this life?

Do they follow and serve their own self and their own self-interests, doing what they want to do with their lives. Or do they decide to fully surrender every part of their life over to the Lord and go with His divine plan for their lives rather than their own.

If you decide to follow and serve the Lord in his life, then sooner or later God will call you and you will then have to take that big leap off the edge of the cliff in order to learn how to fly into the calling that He has placed on your life.

And just as the wings of the eagle are the only thing that will allow them to fly and soar on those wind thermals, in the same way the only thing that will allow you to fly on the call that God has placed on your life is your faith and belief in the Lord.

If you do not have enough faith, belief, and confidence in the Lord and His Holy Spirit to guide you and empower you for this call, then nothing will ever happen.

I wonder how many Christians have missed out on their true callings from the Lord because they did not have enough faith and belief in Him to take flight on the Holy Spirit like the eagles have learned how to do on those wind thermals?

Bottom line – we are the eagle, our wings are our faith and belief in the Lord, and the wind thermals are the presence and power of the Holy Spirit flowing and operating through us so we can fully accomplish all of our our divine destiny for the Lord.

2. Eagles Are Master Fliers

As a result of being able to learn how to fly on those strong wind thermals, eagles are considered master fliers. They can fly to heights that no other bird can. They have been seen flying as high as some of our airplanes fly.

If eagles have to be careful not to expend too much energy in flapping their wings because of their size and weight, then how can they fly as high as some our modern day airplanes? The answer is in their ability and skill to ride and fly on these strong wind thermals.

This is why you see eagles literally soaring at times on these wind thermals, with their wings being spread straight out and no flapping being done.

In the same way, we as Christians can learn how to be master fliers by learning how to be led by the Holy Spirit on a daily basis.

Just like eagles depend on these strong wind thermals to take them to heights that no other bird can fly to – in the same way we can be taken to heights that we may have never dreamed possible if we will just learn how to be led be the Holy Spirit on a daily basis.

Just think how much more good fruit we could produce, and how much more we could accomplish for the Lord in this lifetime if we could all learn how to be really led by the Holy Spirit on a daily basis, and how to really walk with His power and anointing flowing through us.

Again, this is something that can be learned if you are open and willing to be taught by the Lord on how to do this on a daily basis.

It is the job of the Holy Spirit Himself to teach you how to be personally led and empowered by Him so you can fully accomplish everything that the Lord has set out for you to do for Him in this life.

3. Eagles Are Master Fisherman

Eagles are also considered master fisherman. They are very good in locking in on their prey and then swooping down to catch them.

How many times have you seen videos where an eagle will swoop down on a body of water and pick up a fish swimming near the surface with perfect ease and accuracy, and catching them on the very first attempt. They are absolute masters at hunting down and catching their prey, whether that prey be on land or in the water.

Just as eagles are considered to be master fisherman with how they can catch fish in water – we, as Christians, have been called by the Lord to be “fishers of men,” just like Jesus and the apostles were at the very beginning of the New Testament.

Our number one job in this life is to try and get as many people saved as we possibly can.

Personal evangelism within our own circle of influence is something that each and every Christian can do for the Lord, and it is something that we should always keep our radars up for – as you never know when the Holy Spirit will move on you to lead you to someone He will want you to witness to, whether it be someone you might know or a complete total stranger.

4. Eagles Fly Alone

Though eagles will mate for life, for the most part you will always see them flying alone in the skies.

As Christians, we are all part of the body of Christ, where the little finger is just as important as the big toe.

However, the Bible also tells us that many are called but few are chosen. I believe this verse is referring to our calls in the Lord, not to our personal salvation in Him.

What this verse is telling us is that many of the people God is calling are not being chosen for various reasons.

What this means is that at times you may feel totally alone, depending on the type of calling that God has placed on your life and exactly where you are at in the development of that calling.

David was alone when he took on Goliath. No one else would step on the battlefield with him when he took on that evil blasphemous giant.

Peter was alone when he stepped out of the boat to walk on water, as the Bible says that the rest of the apostles were too scared to try and do it on their own. Moses was all by himself for 40 years in the backside of the desert before God called him out to deliver the Israelites from Egypt.

David was hiding out in caves from Saul for quite a number of years before he was finally called out to become the greatest king of Israel.

At times, you may feel totally isolated and alone at the spot where God may have you at.

When you are in these kinds of dry times and seasons with the Lord, just keep pressing forward and flying alone like the eagle does – and sooner or later God will bring you forth into the heart of your call where everyone will then see you and work with you on the call that God has placed on your life.

5. Eagles Live on Higher Ground

For the most part, eagles will always be found living on some type of higher ground. As Christians, we are already living on higher ground as compared to the rest of the world as a result of who we are in Christ.

We are now born-again children of the Most High God. We are now kings and priests of the Lord. We now have the Holy Spirit, along His power and knowledge residing on the inside of us to help lead us, sanctify us, and empower us so we can all be used by the Lord in a mighty way for ministry.

This is why the Lord is calling all of us to stay in the world, but not to be an actual part of the world.

In other words, we are to be in the world, but not of the world. We are to keep ourselves separate from the corruption, pollution, vices, and sins of this world so God can keep us on His straight and narrow road for the rest of our earthly lives.

We live on this higher ground as a result of our position in Jesus. And we always need to keep reminding ourselves that we are living on this higher ground, as the world will always do everything it can to try and drag us down into their lower way of living.

6. Eagles Are Extremely Bold, Courageous, and Powerful

Another very powerful trait of the eagle is that they are very bold, courageous, and powerful. Eagles have literally been seen engaging with poisonous snakes and tearing their heads off with their beak.

They have been seen going right through major storm clouds, where most birds will fly away and hide in safety until the storm has passed.

As we have stated numerous times in some of the articles in our spiritual warfare section, God is calling all of us to become good and mighty soldiers of Jesus Christ.

He is asking all of us to put on His armor and to engage with demons and to cast them out of people when necessary.

Just like the eagle has no fear of any man, beast, or snake – in the same way we should have no fear of any demonic spirit or any evil human being since we all have God Himself totally on our side.

The Bible tells us that greater is He that is in us than he who is in the world. David perfectly proved that point when he took out Goliath with one perfectly, well-placed blow.

In the Spiritual Warfare Section of our site, we have an article titled, “Battle Verses of the Bible.”

In this article are 100 of the very best battle verses in the Bible. These major battle verses will show you that God the Father does have a war side to His personality, and that He will not hesitate to go into battle to protect you and your close loved ones if you have been walking close with Him over the years.

Bottom line – take your cue from the eagle.

Just like the eagle is the most powerful and feared bird in the sky – in the same way God the Father can personally raise you up to be a mighty and courageous soldier for Him so you can do great and mighty exploits in the calling that He has personally placed on your life.

7. Eagles Are Considered Majestic

Due to the way eagles look and act, many people consider them almost majestic and invincible. They seem to have a look of royalty about them.

In the same way, we, as Christians, have this same air of royalty about us since we are now considered kings and priests of the Lord due to the sacrifice that Jesus has personally made for all of us with His death on the cross.

This majestic royalty that we now have operating through us all comes direct from Jesus. It does not come directly from us, or any of the good works that we may have done to-date for the Lord. It all comes to us as a direct result of Jesus dying on the cross for all of our sins.

Only the blood that Jesus has personally shed for each one of us on the cross is what makes us kings and priests before Him, lest we all get puffed up with our own pride and arrogance, thinking this was all of our own doing and making.

8. Eagles Are Faithful For Life

Once eagles mate with their partners, they will stay true and loyal to that other eagle for life. In the same way, once God leads us to the mate that He will want us to marry in this life, He will expect us to stay true, loyal, and faithful to that mate literally to the day we die.

In this day and age, where 50% of all marriages are still failing and ending up in divorce, this is a tall order for many to stay faithful to their spouses.

We have another article in our site titled, “The Sin of Adultery” in the Current Issues section of our site.

In this article are some very heavy verses, all showing how much God hates adultery and what the ramifications may be for some of those who do not pull out of this serious sin within a reasonable length of time.

God expects all of us to honor our vows and commitments made at the wedding altar. God takes marriage and the vows that come with it very, very seriously, and it is nothing to be trifled with or taken for granted once you hit a few minor speed bumps in the marriage.

The Holy Spirit is the Helper and Counselor, and He can help heal any hurts or misgivings that may have occurred in the marriage if you will just learn how to open yourself up to Him and allow Him to work in whatever state your marriage may be in.

9. Eagles Are Very Patient

Another very interesting quality that eagles have is that they are very patient. Documentary film crews have filmed eagles spotting rabbits they will target as prey.

Once the rabbit senses the danger, he will then go hiding in a hole, sometimes for as long as an hour or two before he finally comes back out.

The eagle will then wait for that hour or two until the rabbit finally comes back out again. And once he does, the eagle will then swoop down and catch him within seconds. As a result of his patience, the eagle will then be rewarded with a big fat meal.

In the same way, we all need the patience of the eagle, especially in the type of world we now live in with everything being done at breakneck speed and people’s fuses being shortened as a result of all of the high stress that we are forced to live under.

This is why one of the 9 fruits of the Holy Spirit is the fruit of patience, as we all need His patience operating through us so we can weather the storm clouds of this turbulent life.

10. The Eagle Has 2 Sets of Eyes

Another very fascinating quality that eagles have is that they have two sets of eyes. The first set is their natural eye which they have when they are in a resting mode.

However, when they start to take flight on these strong wind thermals, they have a second eye that comes in on them. This second eye then enables them to fly on these strong wind thermals without damaging their original eye.

This second eye is also used when they are seen flying through actual storm clouds. The heavy winds from a storm cloud could easily damage their normal natural eye, and this second eye gives them a protective covering as they are navigating through these heavy storm clouds.

As Christians, we also have two sets of eyes operating in us. The first set is our normal natural eye which we use to see the natural world in which we live in. However, we also have a second set of eyes and that is the eyes of the Holy Spirit.

Since we all have the Holy Spirit living on the inside of us, we also have His eyes available to us at times to see things from His perspective.

As you start to draw closer to the Lord in your own personal relationship with Him, there will be times that He will allow you to “see” things as He sees them. You will start “seeing” what certain Scripture verses may mean. You will start to “see” what the real truth is in many of the matters of your own personal life.

When this starts to occur, this is the Holy Spirit Himself allowing you to see things through His eyes, not your eye. This is highly supernatural event when it starts to occur.

It is God Himself literally allowing you to see things from His point of view and perspective.

The Bible says that the truth will set you free. But you first have to see what that truth is before it can start to set you free.

This is why we all need the eyes of the Holy Spirit operating in us, so we can start to see what the real truth is on many of the different matters and issues in our own personal lives.

Just like the eagle needs his two sets of eyes in order to be able to live and survive in this world, in the same way we need both our natural eyes and the eyes of the Holy Spirit operating in us so we can properly work and function for the Lord in this life.

11. The Nests of Eagles Are Built in the Wilderness

When baby eagles are first born, the mother eagle will build the nest in which to raise up her newborns in the wilderness, away from mainstream society. This is done so she can safely raise them up without any type of harm coming to them.

In the same way, the Lord will sometimes build up His eagles in a wilderness type setting. Again, Moses was in the backside of the desert for 40 years before God called him out to complete the greatest deliverance mission of all time.

David was in the caves of the wilderness for a number of years, possibly for 13-15 years, before he was called out by God to become the greatest king that Israel has ever had.

Some of you who are reading this right now may be in your wilderness setting with the Lord, where He is slowly raising you up in your calling for Him.

It is sometimes in these wilderness type settings that your greatest strides in spiritual growth are actually made in Him.

12. Eagles Have Contrasting Color Patterns – Noticeable From a Distance

Many of the creatures God has created have color patterns that blend in with their natural surroundings so as to protect them from other predators.

However, not so with the eagle. The American bald eagle has dark brown skin with a white colored head. As a result of this contrasting color pattern, they can easily be seen from quite a distance.

I know this may be stretching this analogy a bit, but I believe that the dark skin of the eagle lines up with our flesh colored skins, and the white color on the head and face of the eagle line up with the presence and power of the Holy Spirit living in us. In other words, it is symbolic of the anointing that we have operating in us through the Holy Spirit.

People who walk with a very strong anointing from the Lord are very noticeable from a distance. You can “see” the anointing of God all over them. You can “see” the manifest presence of the Holy Spirit in the form of a transparent glow radiating out of their faces.

These people have developed very strong personal relationships with the Lord over a number of years and they are walking very close with Him in working out their own personal calls for Him in this life.

Just like the eagle stands out in his environment as a result of his might, prowess, and contrasting color pattern in the animal kingdom – in the same way, highly anointed Christians also stand out in their surroundings due to the presence and power of God Almighty Himself radiating out of them.

Jesus Himself has told us in His Word that He is our light, and that once we have His light shining through us, that we are not to try and hide it underneath the table.

We are to let His light shine through us so we can reach the rest of the world with His message of eternal salvation.


Once you isolate all of the main qualities of the eagle, I do not think it is a coincidence that they all perfectly line up with what God would like to have worked into each one of us. I believe when God says in the above verse from Isaiah that we will mount up with wings like eagles, He is meaning exactly what He is saying in this verse.

Once again, here are the main attributes and qualities of the mighty eagle, the most powerful and feared bird in the skies:

  • Master fliers
  • Master fishermen
  • Fly alone
  • Live on higher ground
  • Extremely bold, courageous, and powerful
  • Majestic
  • Mate for life
  • Very patient
  • Have two sets of eyes
  • Nest are built in the wilderness
  • Noticeable from a distance as a result of contrasting color patterns

I believe the Lord is in the process of raising up an army of mighty eagles. I believe we are living in the last days as prophesied in the Bible, and God will be launching this army of eagles onto the earth in an effort to get as many people saved and on that rapture train as He possibly can before the end finally comes.

Some of you who are reading this article right now might be one these eagles being raised up by the Lord.

If you are, study this eagle analogy very carefully, as I believe the Lord is giving all of us a very powerful and profound analogy.

Be the first to know when we publish new articles.

    Thank you for this analogy. I was very blessed by it this morning and it is an answer to prayer. This was good enough that I think I will share it with my bible study class Sunday.
    Thanks again.

  2. Eugene - September 20, 2013 at 12:07 pm

    An illuminating and thought-provoking article. The effort is commendable. More grease to your elbow.

  3. Jayasingh Chelliah - September 29, 2013 at 8:58 am

    Very inspiring article. I am blessed.

  4. Janet - October 14, 2013 at 7:14 pm

    Excellent article and I feel is spot on. I appreciate the effort and research done to complete this work. It has truly inspired me and I must share this with my Christian sisters in our bible study. I would just suggest 1 thing. Could you please put a date to your writing so I know if this is current. I say this because you said you believe that we are in the end times, as do I. So I’m curious when this was written, 5 yrs ago or 1 month ago, just as a mental time frame. Thanks!

    • Chris - October 18, 2013 at 7:53 am

      Hi Janet, I want to say Michael wrote this about 10 years ago but really fine tuned it around 2005, and that is going off my own memory but I do believe this was one of the earlier articles we posted. I am glad you enjoyed it.

  5. flora pinder iza - October 15, 2013 at 10:43 am

    You got it all, that is what we are created to do.

  6. Shelley - May 26, 2014 at 10:52 pm

    I am glad I found this, I had a dream and in my dream was a Super gigantic Eagle. I was outside running to my house, when I went inside, the house was empty and clean….as I started to head toward the hallway, I heard a loud voice say “come on Shelley”. I looked behind me and didn’t see anyone, so I walked back toward the living room and again the voice said “come on Shelley”. And so I opened the front door and behold there was the biggest eagle I ever saw….. It looked at me and said “let’s go, it’s time”. I climbed on him and as I was settling myself by his neck, I started to fall asleep. Somehow as I sat down around his neck I felt snugged and so very serene….. I am not sure if he took off with me on Him, cause I fell asleep on him.

    I was moved by this dream, and once I told my pastor this dream, he suggested I start studying about eagles. That is how I found your article. I am glad I did. Still not to sure what my dream was all about, but I can wait for God to reveal it to me.


  7. Delilah - November 5, 2014 at 3:23 pm

    Um…. I hate to burst your bubble, but it is apparent that you know very little about Eagles, wind currents, or flying in general. An eagle is perfectly capable of launching itself into the air anytime it wants to by flapping those big powerful wings, just like any other flying bird on the planet. Thermals are great for soaring, and I’ve soared with many a hawk myself while flying sailplanes. But you can’t really catch a thermal close to the ground as they are broken up by trees, hills, buildings, etc. you have to FLY several hundred feet into the air before you can start to soar.

  8. Brigitte - February 13, 2015 at 6:13 am

    God gave me Isaiah 40:31 about 10 years ago. I hung onto that verse and have seen many eagles in my neighborhood the last couple years and usually when needing God to show himself to me. God has moved me into a no I know nothing about but He has told me that He goes before me, so I tell him to meet me there and he does. His promises are true, he WILL be where he calls us. Yesterday I was walking my dog in the park and the sky was blue and it was bitter cold and looking up I said now would be a good time to see an eagle, well at the end of my walk while thinking of my parents whom are with the Lord, I heard “your mom and dad are proud of you” then came my eagle overhead. God himself. I have been searching for meanings and the end of your post hit head on. God is building His army, I’ve said this many times…..thanks

  9. philemon Gado - February 26, 2015 at 5:32 am

    Great insight. This indeed is rich enough to make one an eagle christian. I was doing a study on “the eagle christian ” when I jumped on this beautiful material. Bravo!

  10. Joseph Martin, Jr. - March 11, 2015 at 10:24 am

    Thank you for the powerful information on the qualities of an Eagle and they relate to our walk with God. This information was very informative and I really enjoyed reading it. Again, thanks.

  11. Terri - April 6, 2015 at 3:56 am

    I searched for something like this to help me understand an experience I had last night – Easter Sunday. I know this is an old thread (last post Feb 2015 though) and want to share my experience.
    While sitting at my kitchen table last night I heard a soft ‘bang’ on the window and went outside because I thought someone had tapped for attention. When I got outside I was met with the incredible sight of an eagle, which had clearly been slightly stunned by flying against the window. It was on the ground and my 2 cats were circling it, curious. I tried shooing them away in order to protect it and it immediately rose from the ground – and I swear, looked straight at me. It was almost like in slow-motion and only a few feet away from me.
    It gently flapped away – quite low, to the bushes outside my garden and then eventually took off.
    I found this most disconcerting – as I have always been scared of large birds of prey. In the early hours this morning, I had a dream where God was speaking quietly to me about the eagle. I am still trying to work-out exactly what it all means – but thank you for your detailed article, which may help me do just that!

  12. Inno - May 16, 2015 at 3:36 pm

    Quite an informative analogy. The reason why i was searching on eagles is because after a period of fasting and praying i saw 2 eagles in a dream. I’d been praying on seeking the face of the Lord and walking in His anointing when i had this dream.
    What is striking is before i went to sleep, the Lord had said to me in my prayer to take note of what i was going to dream about.
    After reading this article, it now makes sense. I must admit, i’d never learnt that eagles were so close to God’s heart. I believe i’m one of these eagles the Lord is raising. Lets march into the battlefield soldiers of Christ. Amen

  13. Ruth - May 25, 2015 at 12:48 am


    I was thinking of a topic to share in our bible study group for quite sometime now, and just have a random thought of an eagle yesterday while going home from church. With that, I started to search bible+eagle in the internet. 🙂

    Thank you for writing this inspiring article. God Bless!

  14. Faye - May 29, 2015 at 12:36 am


    Thank you for this informative and very encouraging post. For some reason, I was compelled to research on the eagle yesterday. Your post is by far the richest in analogy in my current Christian walk.

    Wow… This is more marvelous than what to explain… God have really touch my life through this your article. God told me that my youth has been restored, I started looking into the eagle aspect of the Isaiah passage. As I read on I could not only identify but I became more and more amazed to the point that my jaw dropped. Some of the sentences were exactly what Jesus had told me in one of our conversations. He has already done 1 supernatural eye surgery — not for healing but seeing in the supernatural — and is working on the other eye with 1 or 2 more treatments to come.

    Isaiah 40:31 has always been one of my favourite verses. Then a few months back I was off sick and really feeling sorry for myself and happened to look up out of my window and saw an eagle sitting on a tree in our yard. Just knew it was a message from God as we wouldn’t normally get eagles in our area. Then today saw a pair flying over so thought I would look up what else the bible says about eagles. Having 2 sets of eyes really spoke to me. I have had 2 eye infections this year so really feel like God is speak to me to look at things differently. To see things as he sees things.
    Thank you so much for such an awesome article.

    Adorable Articles. Thanks God for reveling me about the eagle. I thought i’t was only a bird but after reading all those articles, i realized it is a very good teacher of my christian life.
    i’m very very encouraged in my life today, i wanted to quite my calling because of winds and clouds in my spiritual life, i didn’t understand the reason of it, but for real i love Jesus and i decided to serve him all my life. Sometimes i find myself alone, sometimes the winds blowing on my side,sometimes discouraged with situations, but God is good for me.

    I promise to follow the characteristics of an eagle in my spiritual life and in my paths.

    thanks and may God bless you.

    This is an absolute inspiration from the Holy spirit, I was really blessed by it…. You inspired me greatly. I truly thank God almighty for this reasearch and how God used you to match these attributes of the eagle with our glorious Christian life.
    God will inspire you higher and u will continue to be a blessing in Jesus name

  22. Nicole - January 17, 2016 at 5:46 pm

    Thank you very much, you are truly blessed. I had a vision of an eagle taking me up and not flapping its wings, yet still we were soaring and flying high. The only time I saw the wings open is when it landed to pick me up. I went to church today and this was the alter call to live a life led by the holy spirit and to walk him and depend on him daily. It definetly ties in with this article. Trials and tribulations will come but we are to depend on the holy spirit and we will soar like an eagle. The atricle is very through and covers all aspects of my life. Wow!!

  27. Tshepiso - June 8, 2016 at 3:05 pm

    Thank you very much for this awesome article which is so profound and informative. I searched for spiritual meaning of an eagle because God has been talking to me about” vision” for weeks now. I listened carefully and he took me to the vision of my church which says “Dont limit God, fly as high an eagle, God is on your side” . As I deligently set my mind and heart to really seeking the face of God concerning this I realised that my eyesight is restored as it was giving me trouble. I was developing a cataract but God restored it perfectly well as I meditated on the strong vision that the eagle has. I kept declaring that I have an eagle’s emmetropic vision and boom restoration came. Thank God for your insight.

  28. Louise - July 8, 2016 at 3:58 am

    I had a dream more then a decade ago and like quite a few of my dreams they really are meaningful to me!
    I was following this big beautiful looking as well as powerful eagle even in its presence it was just awesome….
    Anyway….I was following this eagle and it was going through brick walls, getting caught in traps and stumbling as it was flying and because I was a little distance behind I got to avoid those traps and walls myself.
    That eagle would have its feathers ruffled and get knocked around a bit but it came back just as strong and powerful as when it didn’t have anything in its way!

    To me God was showing me how He goes b4 us and has taken the fall and punishment for us so that we are able to fly and soar above it all.

    I could not if handled all that the eagle was doing for me….
    God is so good.
    Thanks God xx

  29. Weston - August 22, 2016 at 1:13 pm

    This is a very interesting Teaching, I have learned a lot and still want to read through again, am inspired I want to live a life like that of an Eagle even as a Christian in Jesus’ name

    • Sheila - September 7, 2016 at 10:19 am

      GOD is simply amazing in revealing things.

  30. Sampson Marshall - September 9, 2016 at 3:02 am

    A very strong Articles. Thanks be to God for reveling me about the eagle. I thought i’t was only a bird but after reading all those articles, i realized it is a very good teacher and an example of my christian life.
    I am very very encouraged in my life today, I wanted to quite my calling because of winds and clouds in my spiritual life, I didn’t understand the reason for it, but for real I love Jesus and I have decided to serve him all my life. Sometimes I find myself alone, sometimes the winds blowing against me on all sides, and sometimes I am discouraged with situations, but I Know God is good for me.

    I promise to follow the characteristics of an eagle in my spiritual life and in my paths.

    Thanks for this message and may God bless you.

  31. deepat - September 21, 2016 at 2:36 pm

    Simply beautiful. I am so drawn to the eagle, and the fact that it’s mentioned so often is how i ended up seeing this article. I love your analogies. God bless you. You have blessed me.

  32. Cathy - December 29, 2016 at 8:00 pm

    This message was used by the Lord as an instrument for me when I was on my lowest point. My 2016 Theme was Isaiah 40:31 and I thought it was only about to soar high in our company’s target but then when I happened to read this and I don’t remember how I got it, it gave me so much inspiration and courage and there I understood the whole meaning of it why I had the eagle as my Theme. We overcame every obstacles this year by faith just like the traits of an eagle, all by God’s grace, mercy and love.

  33. David Valerio - December 30, 2016 at 4:29 pm

    I had a dream that me and someone I know had copper rings on our fingers as the lord raised our hands. Me and that other person both turned into eagles and soared high above the ground. I’ve been going crazy trying to figure it out, maybe this is what it meant. Coming across this article isn’t a coincidence, not with all the things I’ve been seeing lately.
    Thank you. God Bless

  34. Chy - February 11, 2017 at 1:14 am

    Thanks for this wonderful analogy. It is exactly what I needed for my Bible teaching to a women group.

  35. Debbie Wright - February 13, 2017 at 1:22 am

    God works in mysterious ways! It is no accident that I came across this article at 2:00 am when I have been trying to get into bed all night so I can get up early in the morning. After reading this article about the eagle, I have been compelled to answer the call that I have been avoiding for years. Thank you Michael and Chris for allowing God to use you mightily. You have no idea the number of people that you are blessing!
    Yours in Christ,

  36. Karen - March 4, 2017 at 11:30 am

    Thank you! I have a friend who had a loss of life in her family.
    How can the story of the eagle direct her in her loss to continue on in her life?

  37. natalie - April 1, 2017 at 10:13 am

    hi there ,thank you for that. i would like to ask you if you think the scripture about i will call a swift bird of prey to come and do my bidding indicates and implies (bird of prey as an eagle)?
    i have often wondered the meaning behind that scripture
    the word swift means something done or happening quickly or immediately
    a friend of mine has been given this word over there life and we are seeking interpretation and meaning thank you

  38. Chris - June 22, 2017 at 3:08 pm

    , I actually know about all those qualities of an eagle. According to how the holy spirit ministered to me, an eagle represents a Prophet.

    Hosea 12:13 And by a prophet the LORD brought Israel out of Egypt, and by a prophet was he preserved.

    Exodus 19:4 Ye have seen what I did unto the Egyptians, and how I bare you on eagles’ wings, and brought you unto myself.

    The sharp sight of an eagle denotes the ability of a prophet to see from afar.
    Their strength refers to a prophet carrying large burdens of people(read Isaiah, jeremiah etc)
    Look at the boldness of prophets when they speak, which denotes their power and authority.
    The ‘wing’ feature allows prophets to travel in the spirit realm to any event that is happening or something that will happen in any parts of the world.
    The wind thermals are the presence and power of the Holy Spirit operating within and through the prophet under his umbrella(wings) or area of operation.

    Prophets have a large capacity to carry anointing, If you are under the ambrella of a prophet its likely that you will receive the strength of God upon him or even the gift of prophecy through impartation, so you will mount up like them(eagles)

    However if you possess some of the qualities of an eagle, we can say you are like an eagle but not the eagle itself, because there is a difference btween the gift of prophecy and the office of a prophet. The Apostles could prophesy(gift) yet they were not prophets(office), they were apostles.

    If the bible tells you about some things having parts of an eagle; it means that those things have qualities of an eagle (prophet) added to them. You can see Daniel talkin about a lion with wings in his visions.

    There are a lot of things, just study prophets n you will see what am talkin about….

  39. Dennis B - July 10, 2017 at 5:36 pm

    What a very inspirational analogy!!!! On Christmas Day, 2016 I took my mother to church and decided, I needed to renew my faith! So, after the service I asked her pastor if we could talk, I thought I was good but wanted to be sure.!!! We talked, and we prayed and I was good. The sermon that day to me wasn’t as much on Christ’s birth but more on freedoms. At least 10-15 actual bible verses had the word free or freedom, sometimes both! Now, it gets great! As my mother and I go out to the parking lot, something caught my eye passing the morning sun!!!! I looked up to the sight of a bald eagle!!! This was easily the closest I have ever been to one of these majestic creatures!!! It turned away and came back by us. It soared by again and made the second and third passes by, and then landed in perfect line of sight to us!!!! What a sign of freedom!! I feel in those three passes, God was telling me, “Here I am, I am here, I will ALWAYS be here!!! This has helped me through the toughest times of my life so far. ” On wings of eagles “!!!!

  40. Patricia longhi - July 12, 2017 at 7:15 pm

    In a dream from God: I had a paint brush without paint. I was brushing an eagle wing with it. The wing was spread out. Suddenly I was looking down into the eyes of an eagle. I was impressed that God will completely protect me.
    From reading the article I’m believing that God is going to teach me how to fly on the Winds of The Holy Spirit. Thank you so much for this anointed teaching.

  41. Dancan - July 27, 2017 at 1:01 pm

    i say just thanks much, nothing to add or subtract in which whoever have eyes and brain,read this article and understood, God bless

  42. Godwin - September 4, 2017 at 3:23 am

    this article has been a blessing to my life i now understand that as a Christian we are meant to be spiritual eagles on earth. the best capacity for us to function on earth is to function in the power of the Holy spirit. i now understand how the life of an eagle relate to us as christian

  43. Maria T Rizzi - October 6, 2017 at 9:46 pm

    I am so very humbled by this analogy of the traits of an Eagle compared to that of a Christian. I decided to look up this term “Soaring Eagle” because I was told recently by a visiting Prophet in my previous church during a special ministry event, that God sees me as a “Soaring Eagle.” I had no idea what that meant, and I finally decided to see if there was anything on Google to give me a definition. This is such an AWESOME word and it really falls in line with what I’ve been experiencing and previous Words God has spoken to me over the years. Thank you for posting this article. God bless.

  44. Lynne Buxton - October 7, 2017 at 4:43 pm

    Awesome Study on Eagles. Thank you for your insight. It is inspiring, it is anointed, it is challenging. I will be sharing this with a ladies group in my neighborhood.

  45. Amanda Curran - October 28, 2017 at 8:36 am

    I never leave comments but wow! This article really spoke to me as I seem to be literally surrounded by eagles lately…it seems everywhere I look there is a picture or a living breathing one and this was exactly what I needes to make sense of the persistent signs God keeps giving me. This article was extremely well written thank you for this insight

  46. Janette Mccuien - November 2, 2017 at 9:59 am

    Very good! I had a dream many years ago of an Eagle….the LORD SPOKE with me from a rushing wind! Telling me to believe He was GOD twice. Thank-you

  47. Deborah - November 4, 2017 at 4:39 am

    I’ve always been so fascinated with the eagle, thank you for this truth God has revealed in you to share with other eagles. It was very powerful and it helped me to identify with who He called me to be.

  48. Crys - November 13, 2017 at 9:29 am

    Wow wow wow blown away by this article. Thank you Jesus for your amazing words of wisdom through this anointed writer. Thank u Lord, You are so good.

  49. Rashida Dotson - November 29, 2017 at 8:16 pm

    ALL I CAN SAY IS………..POWWWWEEEEERRRRRFFFFFUUUUL!!!!!!! This is a message from God, and I truly thank Him for giving you this revelation. My goodness this is so so so so so POWERFUL. THIS WAS MEAT TO MY SOUL, and I am not playing. I really needed this confirmation. May God continue to bless you and keep you in these last and evil days. BLESSINGS TO ALL!!!

  50. Femi Adegboye - December 22, 2017 at 4:54 am

    So wonderful. I have been desiring to know more about the eagle and have been greatly helped. Had a revelation recently about a large white eagle that descended from the sky and flew down towards me and some Christian Brothers and it entered the ground and the sky changed and became brighter and I heard in my spirit, go and warn them. Two of the brothers were preaching to us telling the Lord is coming soon and this eagle part took place and the instruction given me to warn them.

  51. Fola - January 7, 2018 at 10:37 am

    The theme for this year in my church is based on this verse of the bible. I had been propelled to know more about the eagle and it’s relevance to our Christian walk and this study was just apt!. I am sharing this . It’s such a powerful powerful study. God bless you sir.

  52. Courtney - January 8, 2018 at 12:02 pm

    I want to say thank you for posting this article. It has helped me in so many ways! My grandmother had a dream about me from the Lord when I was 9 years old about an eagle. I have been trying to determine the meaning and the message behind it. I truly believe that your article has given it more meaning and will help me to grow in my relationship with the Lord. Thank you again, Courtney

  53. Cynthia Martinez - March 7, 2018 at 7:46 am

    I woke up from a dream, that a giant eagle was on my house. Standing very still and watchful of me. It was so big all I could see were it’s legs, face and beak as it had its head inclined to me. But there was a storm happening in the sky and the eagle was partially hidden from it. My family and I were making music in the yard and talking about Jesus. And every time I would look up, the eagle was looking at me.
    Thank you Lord for this article, for inspiring this person to do your work.

  54. Stephen Chishiko - March 8, 2018 at 8:34 pm

    Traits of the Eagle article is inspirational and has given me the inner motivation as a child of God. To walk with Him and how I should guard my life. Issues of faith and belief and free flow on the Holy Spirit is critical to live a victorious Christian life.
    Thank you.

  55. white feathers - March 27, 2018 at 7:41 am

    I love this article,the timing of it is amazing for me. I had a dream last night of many eagels flying over me. I laid down on the ground to watch them all. I love eagels!! my real life I have had many experiences and I feel that it is a gift from our God. I have a tattoo of Isalah 40:31. There is definitely a reason behind why I got that tattoo. I have a very strong faith and put all my trust on our Lord. I could keep going with everything I have to say but another time. I just know that we our the light and we all need to come together .
