Pastor Stephanie (Heaven On Earth Ministry)
Jesus as the Lion and the Eagle
God speaks to us in dreams and visions
We take simple step of faith
Lion is known as the king of animals. He is not bigger or stronger than other animals but why is he king?
His mindset is very different from other animals. He thinks he is the king and very powerful and that he can rule everyone
In his thoughts he thinks very big. He thinks the impossible he can do. He thinks he is king.
We have the mind of Christ. Jesus is not scare of anything because He knows He is the King of kings
In the world what do we usually say of the eagles?
Eagle is the king of the sky. He rules the sky and the birds
The world uses these two animals as the motivation
The Lord gives us this theme. Restful Conquest & Inheritance and the eagle having the ability to rule.
Our realm is the realm of heaven
We are not supposed to put our roots into this earth
We are supposed to live like an eagle.
The spirit man
Our bodies is governed by the 5 senses
God communicated and made human being. He put spirit in men and we can communicate with God
Our spirit man is born again
The spirit has the experience of it. The spirit feels peace.
Only the spirit man got born again
Physical did not change
All the problem of being a christian is not with the spirit is with the mind
Your thoughts and spirit can align together and flow together
Jesus borne our pains on the cross so by His stripes we are healed.
There are 3 voices – sense realm, mind realm, spirit realm
Hear what God tells us. Who He is and who we are in Christ
The spirit is the One that got born again
The hidden man of the heart
In the world when people talk about these 3 parts will start with soul and body. There is another part, the spirit man
When we understand from the bible we are spirit soul and body, we will be excited
We did not understand so we keep on dealing with problem of life
We rule over our senses that are against the word of God
Which voice supposed to rule you? Is the spirit man
We learn all the things that are limited by logic
Jesus is supernatural
Inside our spirit this mind needs to be renewed
This spirit being now can see.
Our spirit man got 5 spiritual senses
My sheep hear My voice
We need to understand the spirit being.
We develop the spirit man. Grow the spirit man
Spirit man is born again.
Reading the word of God is not some kind of knowledge. The word of God is food for our spirit man
The bible talks about eating too. Eating spiritual food.
Make our Christian life not religion
It is a relationship
Is a birth of baby in the spirit
Knowing as we grow the spirit man is growing
The spirit man sees visions which is normal
We are meant to be ruler and king of this earth.
Eagles do not fly low.
This is where our position is.
We are seated in heavenly places.
THE SOARING EAGLE RESTS IN THE SKY
Eagles can fly up to an altitude of 10,000 feet, but they are able to swiftly land on the ground. At 10, 000 feet, you will never find another bird. If you find another bird it has to be an eagle.
The spirit man is the one that bible keeps talking about. Our position is with the son of God
Our 5 senses are so strong. We can hear the word of God and just feel nothing
You can speak to your body and said you are healed.
We need to feel the reality of the word of God
Resting place is the spirit
Our spirit has no worries and no stress
We only rest when we are in the heavenly realm
EAGLES LOVE THE STORM
Eagles are the only birds that love the storm. When all other birds try to flee from the storm and hide its fierceness, eagles fly into it and will use the wind of the storm to rise higher in a matter of seconds. They use the pressure of the storm to GLIDE HIGHER without having to use their own energy.
They are able to do this because God has created them uniquely with an ability to lock their wings in a fixed position in the midst of the fierce storm winds. Challenges in the life of a leader are many. These are the storm we must face as leaders to rise to greater heights. Like an eagle, a leader can only rise to greater heights if he or she takes up the challenges head on without running away from it.
Soaring is resting
The higher the eagle goes the higher he rest
We don’t have to use our own effort to fight
It is not our own way of psycho-ing ourselves
Paul prays that we may know there is power inside us
God has created us to soar
We have already entered the rest in Christ
We can soar above storm like the eagle
Eagle’s eyes vision
We need to see to have direction
Vision is very important
Our vision is like eagle
When there is no clear prophetic vision, people quickly wander astray. But when you follow the revelation of the word, heaven’s bliss fills your soul.

I pray that the Father of glory, the God of our Lord Jesus Christ, would impart to you the riches of the Spirit of wisdom and the Spirit of revelation to know him through your deepening intimacy with him.
I pray that the light of God will illuminate the eyes of your imagination, flooding you with light, until you experience the full revelation of the hope of his calling—that is, the wealth of God’s glorious inheritances that he finds in us, his holy ones!
Ephesians 1:17-18 TPT
Imagination comes from the word image
Let us create man. Let there be light and the holy spirit the executer of the Word
If you don’t speak His word, nothing will happen
Holy spirit is there to confirm
The part we see visions is the eyes of the spirit man
May God open the eyes of our hearts that we may see Him!
Experience first without seeing
Everyone has been called
With visions the people will have heaven bliss
First start with seeing
Eagles See a Long Distance Prey or Enemy – Eagles have strong vision, so they can identify their prey and focus on it until they get it. At the same time, an eagle can see its enemy from afar, such as snakes trying to sneak in to its nest to steal its egg or to kill its young. Though eagles build their nests on high rocks and places, snakes have a tendency and ability to climb to them. But the strong vision of eagles keeps the enemies away from its nest.
If you ever happen to see an eagle sitting high above the tree or cliff of a stiff mountain, watch closely and see how attentive the bird is. The body sits still and the head will be tilted side to side to observe what is happening below, around and above it. Even if its flying close by, you can observe how keen its eyes are looking for its prey.
Must be able to see and help the other eagles to see
Visions. Eyes. To be able to observe
Pray in tongues and we have holy spirit to help us
Eagles have a keen vision. Their eyes are specially designed for long distance focus and clarity.
They can spot another eagle soaring from 50 miles away. Look at great leaders of this world who have come and gone.
There are many great leaders that came and went but one characteristic that is common in all is “Vision”. Vision is a successful leadership characteristic. Take for Abraham Lincoln for example. Abraham, Lincoln, the 16th president of the United States, guided his country through the most devastating experience in its national history, the Civil War. He had a vision, to save the union and free the slaves. He is considered by many historians to have been the greatest American president. Everyone must have a vision that guides and leads his team towards the organization’s or societal goals. The vision must be big and focused. A big, focused vision will produce big results.
The leader must have visions
And so it was, when they had crossed over, that Elijah said to Elisha, “Ask! What may I do for you, before I am taken away from you?” Elisha said, “Please let a double portion of your spirit be upon me.” So he said, “You have asked a hard thing.
Nevertheless, if you SEE me when I am taken from you, it shall be so for you; but if not, it shall not be so. ”
II Kings 2:9-10 NKJV
See Him taken up
We always have to have Jesus within our spiritual sight
If we don’t see Jesus, nothing spiritual will happen
Open the eyes of the people
The physical seeing is not important. Is the spiritual seeing
Then it happened, as they continued on and talked, that suddenly a chariot of fire appeared with horses of fire, and separated the two of them; and Elijah went up by a whirlwind into heaven.
And Elisha SAW it, and he cried out, “My father, my father, the chariot of Israel and its horsemen!” So he saw him no more. And he took hold of his own clothes and tore them into two pieces.
II Kings 2:11-12 NKJV
He also took up the mantle of Elijah that had fallen from him, and went back and stood by the bank of the Jordan.
Then he took the mantle of Elijah that had fallen from him, and struck the water, and said, “Where is the Lord God of Elijah?” And when he also had struck the water, it was divided this way and that; and Elisha crossed over. Now when the sons of the prophets who were from Jericho saw him, they said, “The spirit of Elijah rests on Elisha.” And they came to meet him, and bowed to the ground before him.
II Kings 2:13-15 NKJV
The power will not be manifested on our feelings. It is not in the feeling realm
What you have is in spiritual realm
You just need to add on it
The athlete power is released when he runs on the track
ELISHAH PERFORMS MIRACLES
Then the men of the city said to Elisha, “Please notice, the situation of this city is pleasant, as my Lord sees; but the water is bad, and the ground barren.” And he said, “Bring me a new bowl, and put salt in it.” So they brought it to him.
Then he went out to the source of the water, and cast in the salt there, and said, “Thus says the Lord : ‘I have healed this water; from it there shall be no more death or barrenness.’ ” So the water remains healed to this day, according to the word of Elisha which he spoke.
II Kings 2:19-22 NKJV
According to the Word of Elisha. He spoke God’s Word
The Word of God in my mouth is as powerful as the word of God in your mouth
When you preach is also the Holy Spirit do the conviction of the soul
And Jesus came and spoke to them, saying, “All authority has been given to Me in heaven and on earth.
Go therefore and make disciples of all the nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, teaching them to observe all things that I have commanded you; and lo, I am with you always, even to the end of the age.” Amen.
Matthew 28:18-20 NKJV
For the vision is yet for an appointed time; But at the end it will speak, and it will not lie. Though it tarries, wait for it; Because it will surely come, It will not tarry.
Habakkuk 2:3 NKJV
As long as you are hungry, you grow
The teaching here is to make people able to go forth
You have prophets, teachers, pastors, evangelists
The visions in the form of supernatural
When we are spirit being, God speaks to us through dreams and visions
Even in the book of Acts, people are seeing visions
U can now receive heavenly communication with God
Close visions and open visions
In the eyes of your spirit man
Your imagination is the eyes of your spirit man
We need to protect this eyes. Is this part God will give you visions and dreams
Subconscious is into the imagination part
We are in control of what comes in and what comes out
God can set you free through the understanding of the righteousness of God
There is a spirit part of us
God can communicate to us.
Sometimes it takes years before it happened. The visions happen in appointed time
This year we will have eagle eyes. The visions that God gives to us.
Eagle save souls with the power that is in the eagle!
Eagles have been designed to catch its prey.
Eagles can see through the storm because it is above the storm
When we move in the gift of the spirit we can move and minister
