神讓我在異象中看見一座農場。這座農場其實象徵「教會」,農場上有些牧者,和一些負責農場檢定的人。負責來檢定的那些人問:「農場上有沒有馬呢?」(horse馬:象徵培訓中心)那些牧師們回答他們:「有啊!我們農場當然有馬。」

他們接著問:「那有沒有綿羊呢?」(Sheep綿羊:象徵細胞小組)

OK沒問題,我們當然有綿羊。」

「那麼有沒有母牛和小雞呀?」(cow母牛:象徵教會的「會員們」)

「當然囉,每個教會都有會員的!以及小雞。」(chickens小雞:象徵那些懼怕人的基督徒)

當然呀,每個神的教會都難免有雞,即便「鷹」才是他們的呼召,通常他們都把自己打扮得跟雞一樣,讓自己看起來跟其它有羽毛的鳥類沒什麼兩樣,而且通常這些人都努力來適應身邊的人,好讓別人接納他們、而且能讓自己被他人喜愛。

然後,突然間,一隻野鷹劃破天際,飛來大家的頭頂上。上帝的榮光瞬間來到,因為天開了、響起號角的聲音。當鷹開始尖銳的發出叫聲時,一股神火焰般的聲也迸發開來。

過去一直質問那些牧者的人們開始表意見了:「你知道吧,按照規定我們這兒可是不允許老鷹飛來飛去的。你們沒發現嗎?只要讓那些鷹飛進我們教會,鐵定帶來一堆麻煩!」

有些人甚至開始拿出他們的獵槍、射擊那些鷹。所以很多老鷹只剩下一隻翅膀。

但是神的聲音說:「要和使徒性的團隊一起行動,鷹群飛回來了,他們將再次展翅高飛。」

更新的風吹起、神的新運動開始了,並且祂要你在祂所行的事上,有分其中。

你想要飛嗎?你渴望在屬天之處展翅上騰嗎?

如果你不飛,沒有你其他人也要開始飛翔!如果你不想走上激進的道路,留在家裡吧!如果你猶豫不決或害怕,你還是會面對更多的問題。

我先講清楚這一切的代價,因為你當然可以不去飛。原因之一就是:「飛」是要付代價的!你最好明白,這代價可能得擺上你的一切!因為若你要成為神的「空軍」(Air Force)的一員,這代價甚至是生命的代價,這將使你們當中許多人因而喪失寶貴的生命,很多人會為主名殉道。

我們的政治人物和各種作者對於如何拯救我們的國家總是抱著樂觀的態度、擬定執政計畫,好像可以拯救這個國家、或其他國家似的。但是這些都是人的想法,除神之外,別無拯救。

但聖經是最真實也最實際的書。聖經談論戰爭以及戰爭傳說,男男女女的軟弱,痛苦、折磨、苦惱和熱衷狂愛的一切事物。然而,聖經也是一場非常實際的戀愛,如同一部屬神的羅曼史般──在父神的心和祂百姓之間的戀愛。

(選自The Prophetic Voice of an Eagle教導系列 by Jill Austin)

原文如下:

God gave me a vision of a farm. I want you to think of this farm as the "church". The pastors are at the farm and others came to inspect it. Those who came to inspect it asked if there were any horses (representing a training center). The pastors told them horses were on the farm.
They asked if they had sheep (representing cell groups). No problem, they had sheep. Did they have cows (the members). Oh certainly. And chickens (fear of man)? Yes, there are always chickens in the house of God! Even if they were called to be eagles, many put on chicken disguises, clucking and pretending they were like every other feathered bird in order to try to blend in and fit so they'd be accepted and loved.

Then, all of a sudden, a wild eagle came flying overhead, rending the heavens. Suddenly the glory of God started to come because there was a rending of the heavens and the sound of trumpets. There was a sound of the fire of God erupting as the eagles began to scream out.

The people who had been questioning the pastors then commented, "You know, in the rule book eagles aren't allowed. Haven't you seen that if eagles are allowed in the church that you get into trouble? There are even farmers who take out their shotguns and shoot the eagles. That is why many eagles only have one wing."

But the Lord is saying that with the apostolic teams moving, the eagles are returning and they will be flying again. There is a fresh wind and a fresh move of God happening, and He wants you to be part of what He is doing.

Do you want to take flight? Do you long to soar in heavenly places? You don't have to fly, but others will fly without you! If you don't want to be radical, stay home. You would be too much of a problem if you're hesitating or afraid. The reason I am saying that you don't have to fly is because it will cost you to fly. You might as well know right now that it will cost you everything if you are part of the "Air Force" of the Lord. It will cost many of you your very lives. Many will be martyred in the name of the Lord.

We have politicians and authors talking optimistically about governmental plans to save this nation or save other nations. These are man's ideas apart from God.

But the Bible is the most honest and realistic book that exists. The Bible talks about wars and rumors of wars, the weaknesses of men and women, the pain, the torment, the agony and the ecstasy. Yet, it is also a realistic love affair -- like a divine romance -- between the father heart of God and His people.
