FLYING IN CIRCLES --- BREAK THE CYCLE

By Wade Martin Hughes, Sr. Kyfingers@aol.com

CYCLE: Recurrent round, period of time, pattern... model, blue-print,

Pattern you copy over and over, behavior pattern, reaction pattern, thinking pattern...

(winter, spring, summer, fall; birth, baby, child, teen, adult, death; CO 2 to O 2; )

I. ONE OF LESSON OF THE BIBLE THAT DEALS WITH CYCLES AND PATTERNS IS HIDDEN

IN THE LESSON OF THE EAGLE.

A. WHAT POINT OF VIEW WILL WE THANK?

DO YOU THINK THERE IS A DIFFERENCE IN HOW THE MOUSE AND THE EAGLE VIEW

MOUNTAINS? Allow a time for those you are teaching to discuss the differing views of a mouse

and the eagle as they look at mountains? WHICH VIEW DO WE TAKE?

B. In Israel there are 4 known eagles: 1.) the golden eagle; 2.) the spotted eagle; 3.) the imperial eagle;

4.) circaetos heliaca.

C. Eagles are known for their swiftness in flight. They are also know for their ability to sink their

RAZOR SHARP TALONS into flesh and tear it's prey with it's beak.

D. I am told very few birds can fly with a broken wing. There does appear to be an exception to this

rule: THE EAGLE. I am told many eagles can fly if they have a broken wing. The problem with

the eagle's flight pattern when it has a broken wing is: IT CAN ONLY FLY IN CIRCLES...

around and around, it's flight pattern can not be changed.

E. EAGLES ARE KNOWN IN THE BIBLE A FAST/SWIFT TRAVELERS...

Deut. 28:49 The Lord shall bring a nation against thee from far, from the end of the earth, as swift

as the eagle flieth; a nation whose tongue thou shalt not understand;

2 Samuel 1:23 Saul and Jonathan were lovely and pleasant in their lives, and in their death they were

not divided: they were swifter than eagles, they were stronger than lions.

F. THE EAGLE FINDS SAFETY IN HIGHER ALTITUDES...

The eagle's nest is high above the reach of prey.

The eagle is known that it FLYS ABOVE THE STORM...

Job 39:27 Doth the eagle mount up at thy command, and make her nest on high?

Jeremiah 49:16 Thy terribleness hath deceived thee, and the pride of thine heart, O thou that dwellest in the

clefts of the rock, that holdest the height of the hill: though thou shouldest make thy nest as high as the

eagle, I will bring thee down from thence, saith the Lord.

G. THE EAGLE HAS GREAT VISION, I am told an eagle could read newspaper print from

1/4 mile away...

Job 39:27 Doth the eagle mount up at thy command, and make her nest on high?

[28] She dwelleth and abideth on the rock, upon the crag of the rock, and the strong place.

[29] From thence she seeketh the prey, and her eyes behold afar off.

[30] Her young ones also suck up blood: and where the slain are, there is she.

H. IN THE OLD TESTMENT AND THE NEW TESTAMENT THE EAGLE IS A SYMBOL OF BRAKING

CYCLES AND OF THE NATIONS GOD USES AND SENDS TO ACCOMPLISH HIS WORK AND PLANS

Isaiah 46:11 Calling a ravenous bird from the east, the man that executeth my counsel from a far country:

yea, I have spoken it, I will also bring it to pass; I have purposed it, I will also do it.

Ezekiel 39:4 Thou shalt fall upon the mountains of Israel, thou, and all thy bands, and the people that is
