Ezra’s Eagle

Ezra’s Eagle

I’m going to present to you a latter-day prophecy that to me is more applicable and exciting than any other prophecy, especially to those living in the United States. Perhaps, that’s why I’m bias. 

The other amazing thing about Ezra’s prophecy is that it touches upon the same things that Daniel & John spoke of regarding a 4th kingdom that would be more powerful and oppressive than others in the past. 

However, Daniel and John’s prophecies leave you wondering when this corrupt kingdom might be established or what are the preceding events that lead up to the establishment of this corrupt kingdom

Whereas when you understand the symbolism of Ezra’s Eagle you’ll say within yourself “Oh, crap this is going to happen in my generation, in the not too distant future. In fact it will be distressing when you realize this fact but I promise you Christ will protect the faithful.

Where is the prophecy of Ezra’s Eagle Found? 

The prophecy of Ezra’s Eagle is found in the 2 book of Esdras chapters 11 & 12. Some of you may not be familiar with apocryphal books. 

I’ve noticed the attitude of many christians is “Oh, I don’t study the apocrypha because it is not inspired writings? Who said that? I wouldn’t leery in allowing any individual to tell me what is inspired and what is not. People have a bad history of outsourcing their spiritual growth to someone else. It shouldn’t be that way. The Lord has given evangelists, priests, deacons, teachers and so forth to help us all come to the unity of one in the faith. Those people aren’t as heavily relied or needed if you can take control of your own spiritual growth through prayer, feasting on the word of Christ, pondering over their meaning, and asking for the Lord for further understanding and guidance. 

So in case you don’t understand what apocryphal books are I thought I should explain why the Apocrypha? 

Why the Apocrypha 

The council of Rome in 382 A.D. was when the early catholic church was trying to create some organization to their doctrine so it was decided at that time what books would be canonized. Most of our Bible comes from what was decided at that time. 

I don’t think there exists any recording of the debates as to why they included and excluded certain books but when you study what was included and excluded you can get an idea. 

The original books of the apocrypha were never included in the Hebrew bible but they were included in the Greek Septuagint and in the Latin Vulgate. 

Here is a quick run down of some of the reasons. One of the main reasons many of the books of the apocrypha were left out is because authorship cannot be determined in any of the books other than one book, the book of Ecclesiasticus written by a Jesus the son of Sirach. 

Another reason is it isn’t always known when these books were written. I’ve read that most books of the original apocryphal books were determined to have been written somewhere between the end of Malchi 445 BC and the time of Christ. Some scholars speculate 2nd Esdras was written somewhere around 100 A.D.

Another reason for excluding books from canon is if the original text couldn’t be found in original Aramaic or Ancient Hebrew text. You could only preserve a document for so long. You could wax the paper to try and preserve it but a lot of old documents like the dead sea scrolls were mostly found in fragments that they could only somewhat piece together. 

Last reason, Is my own hypothesis. I would theorize not everyone at the Council of Rome had pure motives. I think a good amount did but the early catholic church was also working towards filling a vacuum that was being left by the crumbling Roman empire. They would become a major political power throughout Europe. 

Scriptures that might have challenged their political structure or authority some may have wanted removed.

For example, we read in the bible about Christ organizing his church apostles, evangelists, teachers. You read about his apostles laying hands on people to give the gift of the holy ghost (Acts 8:19-20.) You read about how many of the apostles and prophets had power from God to do the same works that Christ did but you don’t really read about why they had this power? or how they received it from Christ? 

In fact, you read about how prophets of old received revelations and visions, but you rarely get much explaining as to why the Lord chose to give them these revelations. 

I think some of the information removed may have been removed to make people more dependent on the church, whereas the church Christ organized worked and making people only dependent on God. 

Later, The Catholic church in 1546 AD at the Council of Trent decided to add the apocrypha as canonized scripture; some theorize they may have done this to further differentiate them from protestants. 

Originally protestant churches didn’t throw out the apocryphal books altogether. 

Martin Luther in his translation of the bible into German language included the apocrypha at the end of the old testament but listed in a separate section altogether with the heading Apocrypha: these books which are not held equal to the sacred scriptures, and yet are useful and good for reading.’ (1)

Sadly I think many protestants today have forgotten this useful advice from Luther. If you have ever read any of the apocryphal books you’ll come across writings that are probably false, but you’ll also read things that spirit seems to testify they are true.. 

Just like many things in life sometimes there is a gray area and to me that is how I view the apocrypha. A bag that has some gems but is also covered in some mud. Inspired writings that got mixed in with other uninspired writings. 

The American Bible Society founded in 1816 and the British and Foreign Bible Society started to exclude the apocrypha from the bible (2). 

Revised Editions of the King James Version in the 1880s excluded the Apocrypha but from print. 

So it is only in like the last 140 years that we stop having the Apocrypha in the printed bible. Presidents like Washington, Adams, Jefferson, Madison would have had their hands on bibles that contained the Apocrypha. 

And some canonized scriptures refer to books in the apocrypha like the book of Jude which is canonized scripture refers to the book of Enoch in the apocrypha. 

Ezra’s Eagle prophecy comes from 2nd Esdras. 2nd Esdras is another way of writing Ezra and is associated with the prophet in the books Ezra & Nehemiah. However, authorship of 2 Esdras is not known.

The book of 2nd Esdras was found in both latin and greek writings but not in original Aramaic or Ancient Hebrew. 

Thus the writings of 2nd Esdras that we have now in English were translated from these texts. Seeing it was not found in Aramaic or Ancient Hebrew you are left guessing is it unauthentic made up scripture or is it real and we are reading a copy from a copy. 

I don’t think the Lord expects you to determine that. There is no way to know since the original record is probably not preserved in existence. You just have to read it, ponder it, pray about it, ask god, and if it is true his spirit will testify to your spirit that it is. 

It is my belief that 2nd Esdras is inspired scripture that we are reading a copy of a copy that likely was mostly translated correctly. 

3 Headed Eagle

We learn this eagle represents a kingdom just like many visions in the bible a mutated looking animal almost always represents a kingdom, maybe always I can’t think of a time when it doesn’t. 

Why use these weird looking creatures? Remember, Christ often taught in parables. Similar to a parable an image of a weird looking creature gives opportunity for symbolism that can teach many things in a simple image. 

Likewise, it’s easy to recall to memory, easy to translate across languages,  it encodes the message from the wicked who might want to censure the writing, and it gives one the opportunity to ponder, pray, and ask God for it’s meaning and thus grow your relationship with him.

Okay Let’s Start

2 Esdras 11:1-6

[1]Then saw I a dream, and, behold, there came up from the sea an eagle, which had twelve feathered wings, and three heads.

[2]And I saw, and, behold, she spread her wings over all the earth, and all the winds of the air blew on her, and were gathered together.

[3]And I beheld, and out of her feathers there grew other contrary feathers; and they became little feathers and small.

[4]But her heads were at rest: the head in the midst was greater than the other, yet rested it with the residue.

[5]Moreover I beheld, and, lo, the eagle flew with her feathers, and reigned upon earth, and over them that dwelt therein.

[6]And I saw that all things under heaven were subject unto her, and no man spake against her, no, not one creature upon earth.

So let’s take a break here and digest what we’ve just read. An eagle with 3 heads comes up from the sea. Its heads are at rest. Her wings are spread over all the earth and the winds blow upon them. 

I believe the imagery here is showing this eagle has a great influence over all the earth. It has 12 feathers or wings (you’ll realize this prophecy uses wings and feathers interchangeably with some translation ambiguity but whether its wings or feathers it means the same). 

In addition to these 12 feathers it also has some contrary feathers. 

This eagle reigns upon the earth and it doesn’t take crap from no one. No one speaks against her. 

Let’s Keep Reading

2 Esdras 11:7-12

[7]And I beheld, and, lo, the eagle rose upon her talons, and spake to her feathers, saying,

[8]Watch not all at once: sleep every one in his own place, and watch by course:

[9]But let the heads be preserved for the last.

[10]And I beheld, and, lo, the voice went not out of her heads, but from the midst of her body.

[11]And I numbered her contrary feathers, and, behold, there were eight of them.

[12]And I looked, and, behold, on the right side there arose one feather, and reigned over all the earth;

Okay. Let’s take a break here. The Eagle is no longer flying but has perched and has risen up on her talons and is now speaking to her feathers. I believe this is queuing us to the importance of the next set of events that are to happen. 

The eagle speaks to its feathers from its body not from the head saying watch not all at once, but by watch by course. In other words, you are not ruling all at once, but one after another.  Remember we ended with the first feather taking reign. These feathers reign over this kingdom one at a time 

We are told there are 8 contrary feathers. Remember these are little small abnormal feathers. 12 regular wings or feathers and 8 contrary feathers equals 20 in all. 

Okay back to the prophecy. We just read verse 12 and saw the first feathers reign came to an end. 

2nd Esdras 11:13-19

[13]And so it was, that when it reigned, the end of it came, and the place thereof appeared no more: so the next following stood up. and reigned, and had a great time;

[14]And it happened, that when it reigned, the end of it came also, like as the first, so that it appeared no more.

[15]Then came there a voice unto it, and said,

[16]Hear thou that hast borne rule over the earth so long: this I say unto thee, before thou beginnest to appear no more,

[17]There shall none after thee attain unto thy time, neither unto the half thereof.

[18]Then arose the third, and reigned as the other before, and appeared no more also.

[19]So went it with all the residue one after another, as that every one reigned, and then appeared no more.

Okay. Let’s take a break here because there is a lot to ponder over in these verses. 

I believe good information can lead to understanding revelation and prophecy from the Almighty. 

So understanding the order of these feathers on Ezra’s eagle along with some understanding of U.S. history is going to unlock the deep meaning of this prophecy. 

Now I can only think of two Kingdoms that had strong influence over the world since the time of Ezra (5th century BC) that had the eagle as a prevalent symbol of its country. The Roman Empire and The United States of America. 

So which country are we talking about? Well, in later verses the Lord reveals the interpretation of this dream to Ezra and states the 3 headed eagle which Ezra saw was representative of a Kingdom in the latter-days. Latter-days means the timeframe not too far prior to when Christ will usher in his millennial reign. 

The Roman Empire fell apart during 4th century A.D. so I’m pretty sure that means it is not a latter-day time frame as the latter days referenced in the bible usually refers to the time frame not long before Christ returns. 

However, I guess it would be later in reference to Ezra’s timeframe, but other things about this vision are going to coincide with U.S. History so perfectly that you’ll know this vision is referring to the U.S.  

Notice the line “No man spake against her, no, not one creature upon earth”  It can’t be argued that since WWII the U.S. has been a superpower, and since the fall of the Soviet Union it has been the only predominant super power upon the earth. 

Any country in the last 70+ years that caused the U.S. problems, upset the deep state, its corrupt politicians, its special interests in any way have been dealt with swiftly.

It is my belief that these feathers represent presidents of the United States, and you’ll see later once we learn the meaning of these two different types of feathers and how they are organized on the eagle’s body that they will coincide with presidents of the united states.

Let’s take a look at the image of Ezra’s eagle. 

This was drawn with the eagle’s right wing having the contrary feathers. It could have been drawn either way because we don’t know if Ezra is referring to his view of right and left as he is viewing the eagle beast or if he’s actually referring to the eagle’s actual right and left wings. 

Well if these feathers represent U.S presidents then why is there only 20? We’ll get to that. And if there are only 20, what feathers represent what presidents? 

Now, there is something very peculiar about the 2nd feather. It rules abnormally longer than all the other feathers.  Remember the eagle’s body (the people) said it ruled twice as long as any of the others. After its reign it is decreed that none of the other feathers will rule more than half this feathers time. 

So if these feathers represent presidents of the United States who could this second feather be? 

Well all U.S. presidents throughout history served for 1 or 2 terms except for one, Franklin Delanor Roosevelt (FDR). He served four terms. Why is that? Well actually at the constitutional convention there was a motion to vote on having the president only serve 1 four year term and that would be the end of his service.  1 term because the founders were very afraid of having a king. 

Well, George Washington voted against this 1 year term limit, and because of that many others followed after him voting the same way. It was believed the reason Washington voted it down was because he knew he’d likely be the first president of the U.S. and he didn’t think he could put the country together in 4 years. Washington served for two terms 8 years. 

This tradition or culture of not serving longer than 2 two terms had stayed that way all the way up until 1930s when FDR became president he broke this tradition. He was elected to 4 terms. Soon after he died congress passed the 22nd amendment to no longer allow presidents to serve longer than two terms. 

One person I explained this prophecy to had a difficult time accepting FDR as feather number 2 because technically he didn’t quite rule 2x as long as other presidents that served two terms. He died only 3 months after starting his fourth term.

But keep in mind at the beginning of a president’s term all of his administrative staff that are selected for the different cabinet positions and bureaucratic agencies usually always start at the beginning of a new term. 

The vice president he selected serves during this term and if a president dies in office the vice president doesn’t implement things too differently during the term than his predecessor because he isn’t quite seen as elected by the people but as filling in for his predecessor who had died. 

So even though he wasn’t alive most of the fourth term a lot of his influence still remains during that 4th term

Let’s keep reading, verse 20

[20]Then I beheld, and, lo, in process of time the feathers that followed stood up upon the right side, that they might rule also; and some of them ruled, but within a while they appeared no more:

[21]For some of them were set up, but ruled not.

[22]After this I looked, and, behold, the twelve feathers appeared no more, nor the two little feathers:

[23]And there was no more upon the eagle’s body, but three heads that rested, and six little wings [ or little feathers ]..

[24]Then saw I also that two little feathers divided themselves from the six, and remained under the head that was upon the right side: for the four continued in their place.

[25]And I beheld, and, lo, the feathers that were under the wing thought to set up themselves and to have the rule.

[26]And I beheld, and, lo, there was one set up, but shortly it appeared no more.

[27]And the second was sooner away than the first.

[28]And I beheld, and, lo, the two that remained thought also in themselves to reign:

[29]And when they so thought, behold, there awaked one of the heads that were at rest, namely, it that was in the midst; for that was greater than the two other heads.

[30]And then I saw that the two other heads were joined with it.

[31]And, behold, the head was turned with them that were with it, and did eat up the two feathers under the wing that would have reigned.

Okay we are now introduced to feathers that stand up on the right wing. And we are given the organization of these feathers on the eagle’s body. 

There are 20 feathers in all. 12 are normal and 8 are contrary. 12 of these feathers are with two contrary feathers on one of the wings, so 14 feathers are on one side or on one wing and  the remaining 6 contrary are on the right side  two of them divided themselves from the other four. 

The feathers on the right side decide to rule but they don’t last long. They are all contrary feathers on this side of the bird. We are told earlier in verse 21 that some of them were set up to rule but ruled not. 

The first contrary short feather reigns and then the 2nd is off sooner than the first, so however long this first feather on the right side lasts the 2nd doesn’t last as long. 

And then it says feathers 3 and 4 “would have reigned”.  I interpret the word “would” to mean  they don’t reign at all or if they do, it isn’t for very long. 

So I want to explain what a regular feather means and what a short feather means to get that definition we have to skip forward to the next chapter where Ezra is receiving the interpretation of the vision it reads as follows: 

2nd Esdras 12: 14-16; 19-21

[14] In the same shall twelve kings reign, one after another: 

[15] Whereof the second shall begin to reign and shall have more time than any of the twelve

[16] And this do the twelve wings [feathers] signify, which thou sawest. 

That tells us the normal feathers, now the definition of the short feathers

Next Slide

[19]And whereas thou sawest the eight small under feathers sticking to her wings, this is the interpretation:

[20]That in him there shall arise eight kings, whose times shall be but small, and their years swift.

[21]And two of them shall perish, the middle time approaching: four shall be kept until their end begin to approach: but two shall be kept unto the end.

A regular feather is a reign that started and ended within the natural election process. 

A short feather is a reign that is cut short by some means different than our natural election process. 

Now the previous verses and verse 21 gives us the location of these 8 feathers. 6 of them are on the right wing but 2 of them ended earlier on the left wing “the middle time approaching.” 

Next Slide

Okay here is a layout of the presidents on this eagle. Remember this eagle had FDR has feather number 2 so this bird starts with president Herbert Hoover. Why does it start there? 

I can’t explain that exactly, I do have a theory. I believe it may be because around the start of feather 1 & 2 this country got on a course of no return. Billionaires, foreign influence, and corrupt laws put this country on a course that it could not easily turn back from. 

Around the turn of the 20th century you started to have billionaires like J.P. Morgan & John D. Rockfeller and Andrew Carnegie. Some historians have painted these men as noble giving philanthropists, but much of their giving did have a tact behind it. They worked with the government to create monopolies that most likely would have never happened without government help. The wealthy started to really influence american business, government, and thus culture. 

Also large bureaucracies were started through the code of federal regulations, and council of foreign relations were started around Hoover’s and FDR’s time. The government’s bureaucracy and overall size has ballooned since that time. 

All these things combined to make it difficult to turn the ship around. 

Calvin Coolidge was actually the last president I really liked. He was known as the great refrainer. He cut cost to government spending and programs and the economy flourished under his time known as the roaring 20s. Not much of the government’s growth has been refrained since his time. 

That’s just my theory of why this starts with Hoover. There is a book called the president makers that explains more of how the government started to be heavily influenced by the wealthy during the early 20th century. I’ll leave a link below to that book if you’re interested to learn more.

I think it is important to think of why this starts with Hoover but not essential since the recorded interpretation that Ezra receives doesn’t go over it. 

Now, back to the short feathers.  It says the first two of these short feathers happens at “the middle time approaching”. So let’s look at the left wing around when we are approaching the middle time. Whose reigns were cut short? JFK was assassinated, and Richard Nixon resigned from office. So there are two ways that we know of to make a short feather. Assassination & Resignation. 

A short feather and long feather has nothing to do with whether president served 1 term or 2 terms. Remember our definitions a short feather means their reign was cut short, not by a natural process of how we elect presidents. 

Now we move over to the right side of the wing. Notice the right side starts off with Donald Trump. And he is the first short feather on the right wing. How can that be? He wasn’t assassinated and he didn’t resign from office? He served one full term.

Well was his time cut short as the prophecy states? If his claims for “oter aud” are true then yes, his time was cut short. And there is strong evidence to suggest it was. Unfortunately there wasn’t anyone in a position of authority who had any integrity to stick their neck on the line to try and stop what was taking place.

Now I believe in symbolism, and I ask the question why a lopsided eagle? It has uneven feathers or wings on one side versus the other. Why only the 6 short feathers on one side? And this is what I believe the right symbolises. 

Return to Previous Slide

Notice verse 21 what we read regarding that last 6 short feathers four shall be kept until their end begin to approach: but two shall be kept unto the end

So two of these feathers are kept until the end, and until their end begin to approach. Remember we are reading a copy of a copy of this prophecy. I believe this is referring to the beginning of the end of this kingdom. The right side symbolizes that things are going to start to get crazy, that the end is approaching. 

Isn’t interesting that the right side starts with Donald Trump. I don’t want to get too political there are things I like and dislike about Donald Trump but say what you want about the man, he has not had the blessing or endorsement of Washington (the political establishment) Romney, Obama, McCain, Bushes, and many others in both parties were all united against Trump. The media, big tech, the FBI, and thousands of other corrupt government bureaucrats have been united in their opposition to this man. 

Even if you don’t agree with all his policies you start to like him because you start to realize how corrupt the opposition is. Say what you want about the orange man but he is not a globalist and the deep state doesn’t see him as part of the club. 

So it is interesting that he starts the right wing. I believe Donald Trump is the powder keg that starts this whole thing off. The beginning of the end. 

Exciting! Right? 

Okay moving feather 2 on the right side is Joey. Now remember it said the 2nd would be off sooner than the first so we know that this 2nd president has less time than the first. Less than 4 years. Is that so hard to believe given his condition? Also given some of things being brought to light, like oter odd?

Then the next feathers 3&4 states they would have reigned, so they don’t get to reign or if they do it is very short lived. Isn’t interesting that it is two feathers that are eliminated. We always elect a president and VP. 

Let’s get back to reading the rest of this prophecy. We just finished off talking about the feathers now we are going to talk about the heads. 

Esdras 11: 32-46

[32]But this head put the whole earth in fear, and bare rule in it over all those that dwelt upon the earth with much oppression; and it had the governance of the world more than all the wings that had been.

[33]And after this I beheld, and, lo, the head that was in the midst suddenly appeared no more, like as the wings.

[34]But there remained the two heads, which also in like sort ruled upon the earth, and over those that dwelt therein.

[35]And I beheld, and, lo, the head upon the right side devoured it that was upon the left side.

[36]Then I heard a voice, which said unto me, Look before thee, and consider the thing that thou seest.

[37]And I beheld, and lo, as it were a roaring lion chased out of the wood: and I saw that he sent out a man’s voice unto the eagle, and said,

[38]Hear thou, I will talk with thee, and the Highest shall say unto thee,

[39]Art not thou it that remainest of the four beasts, whom I made to reign in my world, that the end of their times might come through them?

[40]And the fourth came, and overcame all the beasts that were past, and had power over the world with great fearfulness, and over the whole compass of the earth with much wicked oppression; and so long time dwelt he upon the earth with deceit.

Okay, so let’s review what we’ve read. These heads are not good. They have more power because it says they have more governance over the world than the feathers, and they are quite oppressive. They put everyone in fear. 

Seeing that these heads are not feathers leads me to believe these are not presidents that rule over the country but a different phase of rule comes about in the U.S. 

The head in the middle disappears after it’s reign, and the one on the right devours the one on the left. 

Then this powerful roaring lion comes out of the woods. Kind like it comes out of nowhere? What does this Lion represent? Well remember beasts usually represent kingdoms in the scriptures. 

What the Lion’s says lets us know whose kingdom this is. “I will talk with thee, and the Highest shall say unto thee,” in other words this kingdom’s ruler is the Lord’s representative. This is the kingdom of God being established. 

Then the lion says to the eagle “Art not thou it that remainest of the four beasts? 4 beasts near the end of times on the Lord’s earth. What four beasts are we talking about? 

Well to answer this question we need to fast forward to chapter 12. Before we do this thou let’s read the rest of what this Lion has to say to this eagle. 

[41]For the earth hast thou not judged with truth.

[42]For thou hast afflicted the meek, thou hast hurt the peaceable, thou hast loved liars, and destroyed the dwellings of them that brought forth fruit, and hast cast down the walls of such as did thee no harm.

[43]Therefore is thy wrongful dealing come up unto the Highest, and thy pride unto the Mighty.

[44]The Highest also hath looked upon the proud times, and, behold, they are ended, and his abominations are fulfilled.

[45]And therefore appear no more, thou eagle, nor thy horrible wings, nor thy wicked feathers nor thy malicious heads, nor thy hurtful claws, nor all thy vain body:

[46]That all the earth may be refreshed, and may return, being delivered from thy violence, and that she may hope for the judgment and mercy of him that made her.

From these verses we see the Lion is telling this wicked eagle it has come to the end of its reign. 

Now what did the Lion mean that this eagle was the four beast kingdoms? 

Esdrase 12: 11 tells us this was the fourth beast kingdom seen by Daniel. 

[11]The eagle, whom thou sawest come up from the sea, is the kingdom which was seen in the vision of thy brother Daniel.

Daniel 7 talks about these 4 beasts. Daniel doesn’t say much about the previous 3 kingdoms so some Christians argue over who these previous 3 kingdoms were. 

I don’t think identifying these previous 3 kingdoms matters so much because Daniel’s and Both Ezra’s focus is on the fourth beast. If it did we need more details than what the bible gives us. Knowing the previous may help us with certain events in a timeline series of events but really the main meat of what we’re focusing on is the fourth beast. 

Now Daniel the first beast Daniel saw was a Lion with wings that had its wings plucked off and a man’s heart was given to it. 

Some believe this kingdom to be the British Empire since a Lion was often a symbol used to display the power of their kingdom.

The 2nd beast is a bear with 3 ribs in its mouth, some believe this bear to represent the USSR. since Russia often used the bear as symbol in their government edifices, money…etc. 

The 3rd beast is a Leopard with 4 heads and 4 wings, and it says that power was given to it, some believe this to be the European Union, because of the phrase “power was given to it.” The E.U. is currently on the ropes of bankruptcy and probably will not last much longer. 

Now Daniel’s 4th beast was not an eagle. He doesn’t say what it is but that it has 10 horns iron teeth, and is more powerful than any of the previous kingdoms. It is likely the same beast John describes in the book of Revelations since John mentions a beast having 10 horns. 

Does it bother me that the 4th beast Ezra saw is different from the 4th beast mentioned by both John and Daniel? Not all, not really. 

All accounts from Daniel John & Ezra seem to make it clear it is the last beast kingdom before Christ comes. A 4th beast kingdom. 

I believe the beast is different to Ezra because he is getting a vision from the perspective of the U.S.. Covering different aspects of a very specific timeline within the U.S. 

Alright let’s return to reading 2 Esdras chapter 12 where we will be told the interpretation of the dream. 

2 Esdras 12:1-38

[1]And it came to pass, whiles the lion spake these words unto the eagle, I saw,

[2]And, behold, the head that remained and the four wings [feathers] appeared no more, and the two went unto it and set themselves up to reign, and their kingdom was small, and fill of uproar.

Now this is key because it clarifies something we previously read. Before it sounded as if the Lion came onto the scene when the eagle was down to one head but according to this it sounds like the Lion spoke these words to the eagle when the heads were no more, but the last 2 feathers start to set themselves up. 

Then it tells us these two last feathers have a smaller kingdom full of uproar. This leads me to believe that since the Lion represents the kingdom of God and the eagle represents the last degenerate earthly kingdom that there is a small time period in history where both the kingdom of God and this kingdom are upon the earth. 

I pretty sure they can’t co-exist for long on the same planet, but it gives people a time to choose who they want to side with. The dividing of the wheat and the tares. 

[3]And I saw, and, behold, they appeared no more, and the whole body of the eagle was burnt so that the earth was in great fear: then awaked I out of the trouble and trance of my mind, and from great fear, and said unto my spirit,

[4]Lo, this hast thou done unto me, in that thou searchest out the ways of the Highest.

[5]Lo, yet am I weary in my mind, and very weak in my spirit; and little strength is there in me, for the great fear wherewith I was afflicted this night.

[6]Therefore will I now beseech the Highest, that he will comfort me unto the end.

[7]And I said, Lord that bearest rule, if I have found grace before thy sight, and if I am justified with thee before many others, and if my prayer indeed be come up before thy face;

[8]Comfort me then, and shew me thy servant the interpretation and plain difference of this fearful vision, that thou mayest perfectly comfort my soul.

[9]For thou hast judged me worthy to shew me the last times.

[10]And he said unto me, This is the interpretation of the vision:

[11]The eagle, whom thou sawest come up from the sea, is the kingdom which was seen in the vision of thy brother Daniel.

[12]But it was not expounded unto him, therefore now I declare it unto thee.

[13]Behold, the days will come, that there shall rise up a kingdom upon earth, and it shall be feared above all the kingdoms that were before it.

[14]In the same shall twelve kings reign, one after another:

[15]Whereof the second shall begin to reign, and shall have more time than any of the twelve.

[16]And this do the twelve wings signify, which thou sawest.

[17]As for the voice which thou heardest speak, and that thou sawest not to go out from the heads but from the midst of the body thereof, this is the interpretation:

[18]That after the time of that kingdom there shall arise great strivings, and it shall stand in peril of failing: nevertheless it shall not then fall, but shall be restored again to his beginning.

Okay let’s break here. The voice going out from the body represents the great strivings as the kingdom is falling. It appears like this voice within the body is representative of the people of the kingdom. Remember the voice from the body spoke to the feathers to take rule. In the U.S. we have a republic. We have a say in our government but that has been slipping away from us over time and has been making its way towards these heads. 

I believe this is why the eagles heads are resting. They have an influence but are not in full control. After feathers 3&4 on the right wing start to take control. The heads wake up and are not having it. They pluck them out and take full control. This is why I believe the heads are representatives of the deep state. 

Now in verse 18 it also says the kingdom almost falls but it just doesn’t quite fall. It is restored? What??? I’m confused we just read about the Lion sending this eagle off to be destroyed. 

I believe here it referring to the voice of the body. The foundation of this kingdom. Founded under a Republic with correct principles. The principles of the constitution, limited government, a nation under God, what the righteous people want will be restored again. United with the Lion. 

[19]And whereas thou sawest the eight small under feathers sticking to her wings, this is the interpretation:

[20]That in him there shall arise eight kings, whose times shall be but small, and their years swift.

[21]And two of them shall perish, the middle time approaching: four shall be kept until their end begin to approach: but two shall be kept unto the end.

This is where we are right now. Feather number 2 of a series of 4 that are kept until the end of this kingdom begins to approach. And 3 & 4 go really quickly. 

Brothers & Sisters I really need to apologize. I wish I had taught this sooner to give you more advanced warning, because the heads are very oppressive, and the fact that we are at feather number 2 of the 4 means we have very little time left. 

So get prepared and be willing to help each other as brothers and sisters of the most high God. 

[22]And whereas thou sawest three heads resting, this is the interpretation:

[23]In his last days shall the most High raise up three kingdoms, and renew many things therein, and they shall have the dominion of the earth,

[24]And of those that dwell therein, with much oppression, above all those that were before them: therefore are they called the heads of the eagle.

[25]For these are they that shall accomplish his wickedness, and that shall finish his last end.

[26]And whereas thou sawest that the great head appeared no more, it signifieth that one of them shall die upon his bed, and yet with pain.

[27]For the two that remain shall be slain with the sword.

[28]For the sword of the one shall devour the other: but at the last shall he fall through the sword himself.

So here it states the 3 heads represent kingdoms but then it sounds like leaders. Because the first dies on his bed, and the next two by the sword. So which one is it? Perhaps it is talking about the tyrannical leaders of these 3 kingdoms. 

Maybe the word kingdoms is a mis-translation? Maybe it should be kings instead? I’m not sure only time will tell? 

Now the last two feathers after the heads. 

[29]And whereas thou sawest two feathers under the wings passing over the head that is on the right side;

[30]It signifieth that these are they, whom the Highest hath kept unto their end: this is the small kingdom and full of trouble, as thou sawest.

[31]And the lion, whom thou sawest rising up out of the wood, and roaring, and speaking to the eagle, and rebuking her for her unrighteousness with all the words which thou hast heard;

[32]This is the anointed, which the Highest hath kept for them and for their wickedness unto the end: he shall reprove them, and shall upbraid them with their cruelty.

[33]For he shall set them before him alive in judgment, and shall rebuke them, and correct them.

[34]For the rest of my people shall he deliver with mercy, those that have been pressed upon my borders, and he shall make them joyful until the coming of the day of judgment, whereof I have spoken unto thee from the beginning.

[35]This is the dream that thou sawest, and these are the interpretations.

[36]Thou only hast been meet to know this secret of the Highest.

[37]Therefore write all these things that thou hast seen in a book, and hide them:

[38]And teach them to the wise of the people, whose hearts thou knowest may comprehend and keep these secrets.

Now when does this kingdom become smaller? When the Lion arrives on the scene and takes part of it from them. Like we said earlier he seems to arrive after the 3 heads are gone, possibly sooner during the 3rd head. The Lion will deliver the righteous (verse 34). 

Understanding this prophecy should help you to have faith. You don’t have to defeat this kingdom by yourself. The Lord has a plan to destroy it. You just need to focus on keeping your faith in God, preparing, and helping others during this challenging time. 

Now what is interesting is feathers 5&6 come after the reign of the heads, but they are feathers, not heads. And, they are evil. It makes me think that feathers 5&6 will likely pass off as chosen elected leaders. Perhaps they’ll be seen as people different from the heads or but are really just as if not more evil. 

When you compare this vision with John’s and Daniel’s you can get an idea of who these two last feathers might be. I would like to teach more about that but that is for a completely different presentation

I hope you’ll read over this prophecy several times. I hope you won’t be like my brother. I have a younger brother I love him but they guy can be a total numbnuts at times. Ironically his name is Ezra and he doesn’t really believe or give much thought to this prophecy. He’s just like “meh,,,…maybe… I don’t know.” 

Whereas I feel like out of all the prophecies of the latter-days that I’ve read this is by far my favorite, by a longshot. I mean let’s look at the layout of this eagle. 

This was prophesied over 2500 years ago, and even if you have little to no faith statistically there are too many coincidences on how this bird aligns perfectly with U.S. presidents. If you don’t believe now, when will you believe? When eagle head number 1 comes to power? I mean great, now just about everybody believes and you did nothing to prepare. 

I hope you’ll cherish these words, read them over, pray, and ponder it and ask God for your spirit to fully understand it. Don’t just watch this presentation and learn from me. I’m not enough for you to rely on. You need to get your own deep spiritual conviction about these things and their meaning. 

You can download the apocrypha for free on your phone or if you prefer paperback I’ll put a link in the description. 

I may have had a few things wrong. Only time will tell. 

Last Thoughts

I have noticed in the scriptures there is a trend where at essential times in someone’s life or history both light and dark get an equal opportunity to influence a person one way or the other. Opposition in all things, like a Newton’s cradle with a steel ball on each end swinging back and forth. 

For example: In the life of Jesus Christ he went to fast for 40 days and 40 nights. He did this to prepare for his ministry and be with his heavenly father. What happened immediately after his fast ended. The devil came to him and tempted him, offering him everything if he would worship him. 

Another example: May be how Joseph was sold in to slavery. Just as his life started to improve Potipher’s wife had him thrown into prison where he was for 7 years. The devil got several years at making Joseph’s life a living hell. Despite all this Joseph remained faithful

Afterwards when he was able to interpret Pharaoh’s dream the pendulum swung the other way, and he was practically made king over Egypt. 

So it is with Daniel’s, John’s and Ezra’s prophecy a latter-day oppressive government will influence most if not all the earth. This corrupt kingdom is the antithesis to the kingdom of God that will be established afterwards. People during this time will get to experience both ends of the spectrum: darkness and light, hell and heaven. 

If they haven’t repented and accepted the kingdom of God at the time when the other kingdom is being most oppressive then they’ll probably never accept it. At least not in this lifetime. These two kingdoms are how the Lord separates the righteous from the wicked. 

The kingdom of God will come and establish Zion. Zion will be a safe haven to gather the righteous in to be a shelter from the storm when feathers 5&6 start their reigns of terror. 

One thing I wonder about is how this vision is: could feather 1 also be feather 3? It doesn’t seem to break the rules. Nothing was said that these kings could repeat. If the heads represent the deep state as I suppose, could 3&4 be anti deep state? 

I don’t know only time will tell. 

I hope you enjoyed this presentation. I have some preparation advice on my site to help you prepare for these difficult times ahead. Feel free to join the mailing list.
