The Eagle in Isaiah 46, Which Feeds on the Carcasses of Animals, Cannot Be Interpreted as God?

World Mission Society Church of God

[False Claim]

According to the Bible, “the eagle [a bird of prey]” is an animal that feeds on the carcasses of other animals and has an inclination to attack and conquer its prey. This is why the eagle is used to represent Cyrus, the king of Persia, who attacked and conquered Babylon. So the eagle, which feeds on the carcasses of other animals, cannot be interpreted as God.

 

[Countermeasure]

1. Why is Jesus referred to as a lion?

They said that God cannot be interpreted as an eagle that feeds on the carcasses of other animals. According to their claim, God cannot be compared to a lion that attacks and conquers its prey and feeds on the carcasses of other animals. However, Apostle John said that Jesus Christ is the Lion of the tribe of Judah. How then can they explain this?

  • Rev 5:5 Then one of the elders said to me, “Do not weep! See, the Lion of the tribe of Judah, the Root of David, has triumphed. He is able to open the scroll and its seven seals.”

 

2. Why do the cherubim have the face of an eagle?

When the prophet Ezekiel saw the glory of God, he said that the cherubim had the face of an eagle. How can the face of an eagle, which feeds on the carcasses of other animals, be with the most holy glory of God?

  • Eze 1:10 Their faces looked like this: Each of the four had the face of a human being, and on the right side each had the face of a lion, and on the left the face of an ox; each also had the face of an eagle.
  • Eze 10:14 Each of the cherubim had four faces: One face was that of a cherub, the second the face of a human being, the third the face of a lion, and the fourth the face of an eagle.

 

3. Basics of the interpretation of parables

The wicked people insist without basic common sense about parables. The parable should be interpreted in the related aspect with the parable, not in a wrong aspect that has nothing to do with the original purpose.
Their insistence is just like this: “Jesus likened Himself to the vine. The vine is fixed on the ground and cannot move, but why did Jesus move?”

 

4. In what aspect does the Bible liken God who is our Savior to the eagle?

Among many activities of the eagle, did God liken Himself to the eagle that attacks its prey and eats the carcasses of animals? No.
We must know rightly the reason why God likened Himself to the eagle (a bird of prey). God likened Himself to the eagle to express God who saves and protects His people like the eagle that raises and protects its young and carries them on its wings.

  • Ex 19:4 ‘You yourselves have seen what I did to Egypt, and how I carried you on eagles’ wings and brought you to myself.’
  • Dt 32:10-12 In a desert land he found him, in a barren and howling waste. He shielded him andcared for him; he guarded him as the apple of his eye, like an eagle that stirs up its nest and hovers over its young, that spreads its wings to catch them and carries them on its pinions. The LORD alone led him; no foreign god was with him.

Like this, the Savior who saves His people from Egypt and protects and leads them safely to Canaan is likened to the eagle.
Just as the Israelites suffered in Egypt as slaves in the past, in the last age, too, a lot of souls are suffering in death as salves to the spiritual Babylon (false church, Rev 17:1-5; 13:1-8).
That is why the Savior who saves them by Himself and protects and leads them to the kingdom of heaven is likened to the eagle.

    We can look at God through our own standards. God uses these parables for a certain purpose. but to overlook that purpose in order to discredit the parable only concentrating on physical characteristics of an animal is utterly wrong. We should concentrate on the meaning and reason.

    They can’t find a reason to dispute the prophecy so
    they pick at it with man’s eyes and man’s perception of God.
    Let’s learn God’s ways and his thoughts, instead of our own.

    God created all thing in his will . No one can understand the God’s will.
    So God only interpret the bible. ( Rev 5:5 ) It does not matter common sense of human.
    In order to understand God’s will, seriously study the bible.

    Their claim false claim makes no sense. Christ is called the “Lion of the tribe of Judah,” but did he have all of the behavioral traits of a lion? Certainly not! Lions are known to sleep 16-20 hours a day. If we follow the logic of slanderers, because Jesus didn’t sleep 16-20 hours a day, Rev. 5:5 was not referring to Jesus? Through accusations like this, I hope that everyone can see more clearly the identity of those who try to find fault with the teachings of the WMSCOG.

      YA these people have no brains!!! Simply accusing and spreading false rumours without even knowing the facts in the Bible. The only purpose they want is to kill the innocent souls who do not know the Blble well coz they have not study deeply yet. The Bible say these people who blaspheme in matters they do not understand will perish like beasts in the end!!!!!! Really Despise their false claims that sound so dumb and foolish and worldly!!! No essence of God at all in their writings!!! Children of Satan really!!!!!!!

    Oh my goodness… 🙁 Their claims are unsubstantial and primitive.. I guess they need to “study” what they are trying to say because this is a howler and not even an insistence at all. How pathetic! “Be stunned and amazed! (Isa 29)”

    Even if the eagle does not represent Father Ahnsahnghong, what about the fact that Jesus (Mat 24), John (Rev 7), Isaiah (Is 24) & Ezekiel (Ez 43) all prophesied of the glory of God coming from the East?

    The evil one knows that his time is running out, so he & his angels are trying to take some of the children of promise with them. Our Father & Mother have shown us that Love is the greatest force on this earth, so we need to share the love our Father & Mother have shown us, as they carry us on eagle’s wings from the city of refuge to our true home.

    All thanks, praise, glory & honor given to Father Ahnshnghong

      Amen, Love is the greatest force on this earth, which also reflects our father Christ Ahnsahnghong and Heavenly mother is our greatest force b/c they are the source of true love. What a pity, the slanderers are missing the great chance to go back to heavenly home,not knowing the reason why they r here on earth.

    God created all things and he made them with a purpose great and small. God uses many examples to show his will it is not a matter of what is great enough to be compared to him or not, but only for the intention to show his will.

    Father and Mother show their will through much of the prophecies, we should not question or to to understand them in our own way or standards, but try to realize the will of God.

    The eagle in isaiah 46 means not only Cyrus but also God. In the Bible, the parable is interpreted in the related aspect of parable. so, here, their insistence is not correct.

    The fact that people are picking such little details to fight against Father and Mother prove that we are in the truth. Why would Satan take the time to slander us with such ridiculous claims if this wasn’t the true church and true God Almighty? Even this website displays Father and Mother’s love and protection for us, Their children, just like an eagle protects its young. All thanks and glory to OUR heavenly Father and Mother for ever and ever!

      They are using all their strength, mind and soul to go against God’s words. By contrast, we are using all our strength, mind and soul to worship God’s words, His words coming to this world in the flesh. 🙂

    Even the bible interpretation of when God liken himself to an Eagle, they fail to understand due to the fact that everything in the bible is Sealed. The Lion from the tribe of Judah, the root of David who is our Heavenly Father has revealed such mistery to us. Elohim are true eagles sheltering us since the begining of creation:)

    Wow! Truly Elohim has used the simple things of this earth to shame the wise! God even used the eagle to show their love to protect us from the schemes of evil one.

    There is no need to answer for their stupid insistence.
    They seem to totally ignore the fact that there are many parables of Christ in various way because they must to oppose Christ Ahnsahnghong.
