Vision of the Seagull, the Dove and the Eagle
At the beginning of 2015 I had a vision of a seagull beginning to fly from the West Coast toward the East Coast of the US. As it went, the seagull turned into a dove. But when entering a storm in the middle of the nation the dove was transformed into an eagle. I then saw the eagle flying high above the storm, and was easily soaring while circling above it.
Impression: The middle of the nation was symbolic of the “heart” of the nation that was in the storm and not just a geographic area.
Interpretation: Transition & Transformation:
The three different birds in flight represent the three realms the body of Christ will experience in this decade during the transition of this nation. The direction of flight from west to east reveals the move of God across the nation by the power of the Holy Spirit, but it may not be indicative that the revival will sweep from west to east. The direction of the bird’s flight, however, places the shadow of our sin behind us as we are transformed by facing the light of God’s glory in the east.
Is. 59:19 So they will fear the name of the LORD from the west
And His glory from the rising of the sun, For He will come like a rushing stream
Which the wind of the LORD drives.
1. Be Ready as a “Seagull”- The church must experience and be filled with the supernatural transforming power of God. Stormy seas will come, but we are to become comfortable in experiencing, demonstrating and revealing His glory in their midst. I see the body of Christ in the world marketplace where the center of the storm will reside, not just behind the church walls.
Hab. 2:14 “For the earth will be filled With the knowledge of the glory of the LORD, As the waters cover the sea.
As we obey, move and are empowered by the Holy Spirit, the stormy waves will reveal our righteousness to the world:
Is. 48:18 “If only you had paid attention to My commandments! Then your well-being would have been like a river, And your righteousness like the waves of the sea.
Psa. 77:19 Your way was in the sea And Your paths in the mighty waters, And Your footprints may not be known.
If we have eyes to see, God’s ways and footprints can be seen on the waters of the seas of the nations even at night. We can see this illustrated in His creation:
Phosphorescence of the Sea: A phenomenon observed at night as a result of the bioluminescence of organisms in the surface layers of the sea. The luminescence of these organisms is stimulated by mechanical irritation, such as movement of the waters at current intersections, the action of waves or the wake of a ship, or the collisions of the organisms with each other, or it may arise as a reaction to a flash of light produced by nearby organisms.

(The above Scriptures are used to paint a prophetic picture to illustrate a spiritual concept.)
2. Be ready as a “Dove”: Be prepared to be sent out with the olive branch of peace leading people to the Ark of God (Jesus Christ, Lord and Savior) (The flood of evil will be increasing in the whole earth.)
Luke 17:26 “ And just as it happened in the days of Noah, so it will be also in the days of the Son of Man:
3. Be ready as an “Eagle”: We are being transformed for the times ahead. God has not destined us for wrath, but will give those who are walking in the light the ability to soar above the storms that are coming.
1Th. 5:9 For God has not destined us for wrath, but for obtaining salvation through our Lord Jesus Christ,
The storm will not weary us and we are to see as an eagle from a heavenly perspective what He is doing on the earth in this hour. At the same time looking upward for the windows of heaven that may open. I also see the church awaiting the heavenly call to be ready to be taken from this earth for our redemption draws near.
Is. 40:31 Yet those who wait for the LORD
Will gain new strength; They will mount up with wings like eagles,
They will run and not get tired, They will walk and not become weary.
Luke 21:28 “But when these things begin to take place, straighten up and lift up your heads, because your redemption is drawing near.”
Warning: Transition and change in this nation will not really be an option (the degree and timing may be), but transformation of His people will be depending on our obedience to Him.
Transformation of the people of God is going to be the key to thriving in the times ahead. There is a big difference between “thriving” and ‘”surviving”:
Thriving: Flourishing, prospering, succeeding
Surviving: Existing, enduring
One last thing He said to me when I had this vision:
“My son, the vision you saw tonight is closer than you think.”
The nation will begin to transition as the shaking of God accelerates but at the same time the people of God who have the extra flasks of oil will be transformed from faith to faith and from glory to glory. The call of God’s people is to “come up higher”.
“Three Birds in Flight” Vision (Part 2)
A brother in the Lord shared this vision at a prayer meeting and received this vision during the prayer time. What he saw was forwarded to me in his e-mail:
“I saw two hands cupped together and held tightly together.
Inside of these hands was food, one for the dove, one for
the seagull and one for the eagle. The food was available
for the birds yet they did not feed. Through the mercy of
God, He held His hands together for the birds to eventually
I feel that we as God’s people need to feed on the Word of God
from the hands of our Heavenly Father. If we fail to feed on
His Word then we will be just surviving and not thriving. It
is God's Word that will sustain us in the times ahead.
As we feed on His Word our souls will be strengthened. We
must not depend on our past to get us through the times
ahead; we need to nourish our souls everyday to prepare us
for the times that lie ahead. I sense the Lord saying, ”Do not
hesitate to feed on My Word. It's ok to take a break to
feed on My Word. My Word will strengthen you, so feed on My Word daily.”
My Part 2 Interpretation:
This is a simple but very meaningful vision. God has specific food for each transformation we are going through and guards it very closely for our sake and the Kingdom’s. The hands were cupped somewhat tightly, but not because He is stingy. We are not fed from the other until we are ready, no matter how much we desire it, until we mature and are being transformed. (Eagles food is raw meat, not just bird food.)
Three reasons I see the church may not be feeding:
1. Many in the church are asleep in Delilah’s lap of the world.
2. Some are apathetic and do not care to be transformed, but are very comfortable in their present situations.
3. We are picky eaters because we often want to become someone else rather than whom God is making.
Jer. 18:3 Then I went down to the potter’s house, and there he was, making something on the wheel.
Jer. 18:4 But the vessel that he was making of clay was spoiled in the hand of the potter; so he remade it into another vessel, as it pleased the potter to make.
God wants to give transformation food so we can have His best, not what we think is best.
1Tim. 6:6 But godliness actually is a means of great gain when accompanied by contentment.
