The Eagle – The Loyal Mate.. – by A. J. Mithra
Bald eagles are loyal to their mates during their lifetime.
An eagle will usually look for a new mate only if its companion dies.
So many out there still think, that JESUS is a dead god..
Is that the reason why they are on the lookout for a new god?
Well the truth is that, JESUS died for us but, HE rose again from the dead…
And above all, the greatest news is that, HE still lives…
By the way, are we loyal to our Creator?
I am he that liveth, and was dead; and, behold, I am alive for evermore, Amen; and have
the keys of hell and of death. (Revelation 1:18)
Together, they build huge nests known as “aeries” atop tall and strong trees.
They make use of twigs, grasses, soft mosses and feathers in making their nests.
They normally go back to their nests during breeding time and add
new materials to it each year.
A new eagle’s nest measures an average of five feet in width and two feet in depth.
However, as their family grows, the nest also becomes larger reaching
more than ten feet wide and heavier.
A pair of Eagles not only builds so big a nest but also extends them every year…
Before we call ourselves as the bride, let us ask ourselves if we are of any help
to JESUS, our Bride groom, in the extension of HIS kingdom?
GOD has called us and chosen us to go and spell the Gospel to every nation..
What are we doing now? Just warming the Church benches every Sunday?
If any man’s work shall be burned, he shall suffer loss: but he himself shall be saved; yet so as by fire. (1 Corinthians 3 : 14)
We then, as workers together with him, beseech you also that ye receive not the grace of God in vain. (2 Corinthians 6:1 )
By the age of four or five, bald eagles are already sexually mature during which
they look for a mate to have offspring with.
The mating season varies by region.
In the south, it may occur from the later part of September to November while
it may take place from January to March in the Great Plains and Mountain West.
In Alaska, the mating season is usually from late March to early April.
For a long time it was believed that eagles mated in the air,
while they were cart wheeling or sky dancing.
But the aerial displays are really a prelude to mating. Once the eagles are ready to mate,
they will then take to a tree branch or to their nest and then mate there,
using the nest or branch for support.
“JESUS ascended to heavens after HE rose from the grave….
HE will soon swoop down to take HIS bride for an aerial display,
a prelude to HIS marriage with the Church, HIS bride…
Oh Church! It’s time to put on your wedding dress, to meet the Bride-groom
Are you getting ready?
And he saith unto him, Friend, how camest thou in hither not having a wedding garment? And he was speechless. and he saith unto him, Friend, how camest thou in hither not having a wedding-garment? And he was speechless. Then said the king to the servants, Bind him hand and foot, and take him away, and cast him into outer darkness; there shall be weeping and gnashing of teeth. Then the king said to the servants, Bind him hand and foot, and cast him out into the outer darkness; there shall be the weeping and the gnashing of teeth. For many are called, but few are chosen. (Mathew 22: 12-14)
Bald eagles can mate throughout their life starting from the age of four.
Breeding may not occur annually for some eagles by voluntary choice.
They may instinctively realize bad timing because of weather,
nesting site availability, or food.
Eagles will bring fresh leafy sprays to the nest, not for use as part of the structure
or lining of the nest, but as a sort of decoration on top…
They serve as an advertisement that the nest and territory are occupied
and tell interloping eagles to stay away.
The fact that a piece of green and fresh vegetation is kept at the nest
indicates recent activity there.
So the fresh sprays might be a way of saying “This nest is taken.”
Or it might be a ”Gift of love” for its mate…
Or it may be to decorate its nest…
Each new morning, JESUS brings us HIS fresh new grace,
to remind us that in spite of all our shortcomings, HE still loves us…
HE wants to be the decoration of our lives…
Male Eagles bring a fresh new sprig every day as a gift of love to its mate….
But, our Lord JESUS has given HIS life for us to show HIS love…
Are we worthy to be HIS bride?
He that loveth father or mother more than me is not worthy of me: and he that loveth son or daughter more than me is not worthy of me. And he that taketh not his cross, and followeth after me, is not worthy of me. (Mathew 10 : 37,38)
Wish you all a blessed Easter!
Let the resurrected power of JESUS fill every home in every nation…
Your’s in YESHUA,
