Dutch Sheets: Mount Up with Wings as Eagles (Isaiah 40:30-31)

King of Kings Worship Center 17.7K subscribers

Great insight from Dutch on Isaiah 40:30-31: “Even the youths shall faint and be weary, and the young men shall utterly fall, 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.”

The Assyrian king Sennacherib trained eagles for warfare. God gave his brother Tim a prophetic word: “There is coming a tsunami generation that will ride the wave of my Spirit. They will be called my War Eagles. They will ride the wave of my presence and as my war Eagles they will begin to fly carried by the waves of my presence.” The Assyrian eagle was trained to look for an enemy. They would descend on an enemy at speeds up to 60 miles an hour. Josephus says that upwards of 2,000 people in Israel had been killed by the War Eagles. And now you know why the Lord said, “Those who wait upon the Lord…”

The word for wait in Hebrew is “braid.” The concept is those who are braided together with God, those who wait upon him and in your waiting you’re being entwined with him. So now you know why the Lord, in response to Sennacherib’s war eagle, says to Hezekiah those who braid themselves to will run and not get weary because the Eagle is doing all the work.

God gave my brother a prophetic word. “There is coming a tsunami generation that will ride the wave of my spirit. They will be called my War Eagles. They will ride the wave of my presence and as my war Eagles they will begin to fly carried by the waves of my presence.”

To find out about war eagles you must go back to 700 BC, almost 3,000 years, to the Assyrian Empire. You can read about Sennacherib in Isaiah 36 and 2 Chronicles 32. The was the most vicious Kingdom on earth was the Assyrian Empire 700 BC. Sennacherib was their king. He created the catapult. He created towers that would be pulled up by horses or oxen to the edge of a city closed and they would pull the tower up and had a staircase inside and the soldier from the route up jump on the wall and come in take the city. he’s very inventive he.

He conquered much of the world and then he came to Israel. He had conquered the northern part of Israel and then he set his sights on Jerusalem in the southern kingdom. He sent 250,000 soldiers to lay siege to Judah. King Hezekiah, knowing the story, and knowing that no army in the world had been able to stop this invading force, was now under siege by Sennacherib. He had 7,000 Himalayan golden eagles. He sent 700 of them to Jerusalem.

These eagles had a wingspan of eight to ten feet. They tied leather chords to their feet with a metal ball, about the size of a golf ball. A soldier would have a leather chord wrapped around his wrist and then he’d tie the other end to the legs of this eagle. He would lift up the eagle and begin to run The eagle would scream and begin to flap its wings. he could not soar because of the weight but it could carry the soldier at amazing speeds.

He could go 20-30 miles an hour at 30 to 40 feet strides You’d look out of your city at this huge army and they’re laying siege to you and they’re patrolling with these guys being carried along by these Himalayan golden eagles. The eagle was trained to look for an enemy. They would descend on an enemy at speeds up to 60 miles an hour and then just before they hit the enemy they would turn and those metal balls would go for the head.

Josephus says that upwards of 2,000 people in Israel had been killed by the War Eagles, sometimes decapitating them. It got so bad that everywhere they went people would see a shadow and duck because they were afraid it was an eagle. Hezekiah says, “There’s no hope for us.” So he sends a messenger to the prophet Isaiah and says, “Do you have a word for us?” Isaiah said, “Yes I have a word for you, no weapon formed against you will prosper.”

You can almost hear Hezekiah say, “What about these Eagles?” And now you know why the Lord said, “Those who wait upon the Lord…” The word for wait in Hebrew is “braid.” The concept is those who are braided together with God, those who wait upon him and in your waiting you’re being entwined with him.

So now you know why the Lord, in response to Sennacherib’s war eagle, says to Hezekiah those who braid themselves to will run and not get weary because the Eagle is doing all the work. I can soar with you. I’ll take you up higher. The vigorous young men get tired and grow weary those who tie themselves to me will soar.
