Through the Open Door by eagledove

Through the Open Door

by Karen Elliott

A few weeks ago I captured beautiful light from the setting sun coming through my window and reflecting on a tapestry hanging on my living room wall.

I thought it was interesting how the light was reflecting on the gate in the tapestry and that the light itself looks like an open door.

God speaks through so many things if we would have eyes to see and ears to hear.

“I will stand at my guard post and station myself on the ramparts, I will watch to see what He will say to me.” Habakkuk 2:1

What are we watching for? The supernatural reflected in the natural!

So, what do we see and hear in this reflection?

I see and hear the Lord speaking as in Revelation 4:1.
“After this I looked, and there before me was a door standing open in heaven. And the voice I had first heard speaking to me like a trumpet said, ‘Come up here, and I will show you what must take place after this.’”

”at once I was in the Spirit” (vs. 2)

Revelation comes by the Spirit!

I hear an invitation! An invitation to step beyond the veil, through the open door. An invitation to come into a place of deeper communion with the Lord. To know Him as we have never known Him. This is not a new invitation, but at the same time it is.  He who has ears to hear listen to what the Spirit is saying.

I believe that when we come into this place of deep communion with the Lord, He shows us secrets and mysteries that He is longing to reveal to us.
We cannot know the ways of God, or the heart of God without communion.

I feel this is an invitation, a call if you will, to delve more deeply into living life by the spirit. To leave our worldly nature and desires behind. To stop trying to see how much we can look and act like the world and still be okay with God. There must be a distinction between divine life and natural life.

I believe that as we walk through this door of greater intimacy with the Lord, that the things of the earth will grow strangely dim, as the song goes, in the light of His glory and grace, and we will desire Him more than anything else in our lives. We will live to please Him and bring joy to His heart.

There is no greater pursuit than to know Him!

I often think of the passage in Matthew 7:22-23, “Many will say to me on that day, ‘Lord, Lord, did we not prophesy in Your Name and in Your Name drive out demons and perform many miracles?’ Then I will tell them plainly, ‘I never knew you, depart from me you workers of lawlessness.’

Just because we move in these giftings does not mean we truly know Him.
May He never say of us, ‘I never knew you.’

I believe as we step into 2019, there is a plumbline that is set before us to walk in greater truth and revelation which can only be found in deep communion with the Lord.

God wants to encounter us! I pray that we accept His invitation to step through the open door of deeper communion with Him and receive a fresh living encounter with the Living God!

Holy Adoration – Come Let Us Adore Him by eagledove

 

HOLY ADORATION – COME LET US ADORE HIM
by Donna Milham

It all began with holy adoration and it will be summed up eternally and forever with those whose hearts are postured to hear and respond to Heaven’s beckoning

Shepherds in a field a wintry evening
Keeping watch over their flocks
A suddenly from Heaven displays the glory of God
An angel from on High appearing
Carrying the message of Good News
The Savior is born in Bethlehem

They do not question the messenger or the message
Armies of heaven appear praising God
Singing the promise over the shepherds
Over the earth
They heard, they ran, to see
A baby, a King, in a feeding trough

King of Kings stepped out of Heaven
Leaving behind royal robes, royal Throne and Majesty
He was now wrapped in strips of cloth
Simple adorning, humble beginnings
No earthly riches on display
Hundreds were not there
No procession or crowds
Shepherds, stable, Mary and Joseph and baby Jesus
Praises to God – wondrous joy
They heard – they saw
Face to face
Their Redeemer

Simeon would be next to adore
Praising and prophesying
Anna would encounter Him that very same day
84 years in the temple – worshipping God
She explodes with praises and song

The three wise men would be next
They had one purpose, and goal
To bow before the King of Kings
To worship and adore
Their suddenly came in a star directing their path
Holy guidance from Above
To hearts postured in holy adoration
Their encounter with this child King
They fell to the ground and worshipped
They brought lavish gifts
But the greatest gift was themselves prostrate before Him

He was born as all babies, naked, clothed in simplicity
He died on a cross, naked – despised and scorned
His seamless robe was gambled for on the ground below the cross
Just above their heads the Savior hung
The Roman captain awestruck
“I have no doubt we just killed the Righteous One”*
They buried him in linen – costly expensive fabric
Unlike Lazarus who was bound in simple bandages, common material
Jesus was laid in one large linen sheet
Spices – costly – as at his birth
These were specially prepared
He was wrapped in the riches of the world
Yet nothing could match the Eternal Riches of His Kingdom
He spoke the sky and stars into place
He could call upon these to wrap Him in creation’s splendor

On His ascension they worshipped and adored
This King now seated on His Eternal Royal Throne

At His return
Clothed in light and glory
A Golden crown upon His head
Brilliant with radiant splendor
And all will worship
All will bow down
All will adore
O come let us adore Him!

*(Luke  23:47TPT)

The Harvest by eagledove

 

The Harvest
by Karen Elliott

Set out into the deep and cast your nets
An abundant catch is waiting
Though you’ve toiled through the night And the results have been few
                                                                         The time is accelerating
 
Lift up your eyes and see the fields                      
Made ready for the harvest
Go therefore and trust in Me
Even in times that seem the darkest
 
Arise and shine for your light has come
My glory shines within you
The world awaits My radiant ones
Whose lives reflect the True
 
How beautiful the feet of him
Who brings tidings of good news
Let’s go forth with joy and gladness
The great ingathering ensues

Eyes of Eternity by eagledove

Eyes of Eternity

by Jen Brinton

I look into the eyes of Eternity,
Where galaxies are born
And fire burns – Day and night, night and day
Time is forgotten… in the eyes of Eternity
I get lost… in the eyes of Eternity.
Deeper and deeper, I get pulled into realms –
Witnessing through His eyes
The slow birth of a star
As dust and wind move in a dance.
Invisible hands forming planets, moons, and stars,
Shaping the very fabric of the universe
With the same hands that knit me in my mother’s womb.

I look into the eyes of Eternity
Those same eyes that looked into Adam’s,
When Creator and creation met face to face for the first time.
The same eyes that beheld the fall of man
And wept for the sorrow of it –
Yet even so,
The eyes of Eternity gazed through the corridors of time, even then,
And at once, they met my eyes.
He met your eyes.
He knew the end from the beginning.
Those same eyes that I see,
Looked out over Golgotha –
Through sweat and blood,
Timeless and eternal, He knew that the prize far outweighed the price.

Yes, I can lose myself in the eyes of Eternity,
And become what I behold,
Filled with His nature,
That His gaze would meet yours through my eyes.

Though I look into realms unknown,
I will not fear, for I trust Jesus,
The One who gave it all.

Weekly Prayer Meetings

Eagle & Dove Ministries
Weekly Prayer Meetings – Every Monday
“A Call to the Gate”
a-call-to-the-gate-logoEvery Monday, we meet for worship and intercession. We gather together at the mandate of the Lord to press in deeper for this Eastern Gate and this region that His Kingdom purposes will come forth. For those who have an ear to hear this trumpet call and have a heart to respond – we invite you to come and seek His Face and His Heart’s Desire in this hour. He has shown us specifically for Eagle & Dove Ministries and Judah’s Roar – that we need to lay a deeper foundation of prayer and worship for the next phase of the Worship Center/Church to be able to come forth.
Our weekly gatherings are also to press in to hear from Him the unfolding of His Blueprint for this ministry and how it links with others in this region. The kingdom of God suffers violence and the violent take it by force. God’s Eye is on this gate and we are pressing in to lay hold of it, that He will have His Heart’s Desire – a Bride pure and spotless, this city, this region – until the hour that we cry – Come Lord Jesus Come!

 

Time: Mondays, 9:30am – 12:00 noon (Please feel free to join us for all or part of these meetings).

Wave upon wave of grace
When you feel like you have no strength left
He sends wave upon wave of grace
When the vision seems to dim
And the words of promise distant
He sends wave upon wave of grace
Grace to accomplish His ordained purpose of your life
Grace – grace – grace
God’s Redeeming
Abounding

Love Is… by eagledove

Coloring Art by Chickie Taylor

Poem by Karen Elliott

Love is a mosaic of undefined beauty

Exploding with life

overflowing with the oil of joy

radiant with light and brilliant colors

Unfolding in a kaleidoscope of graceful elegance

Love is a treasure from God’s heart to us

A forever gift of Who He is

His love endures forever

Lamentations 3:22-23 The faithful love of the Lord never ends!
    His mercies never cease.
Great is His faithfulness;
   His mercies begin afresh each morning.
