On the Wings of Eagles
Revelation 12:14 - But the woman was given two wings of a great eagle, that she might fly into the wilderness to her place.
It is the same picture that we find in Exodus 19:4. God, speaking to the Hebrew, tells them “You have seen what I did to the Egyptians and how I bore you on eagles’ wings and brought you to Myself.”
God said that He had born Israel as on two wings of a great eagle, So the picture here is to remind the Jewish people, who are fleeing, that God will also deliver them from her enemies as he had in Egypt.
Note: the woman was given two wings of a great eagle that she might fly into the wilderness to her place where she is nourished for a time and times and half a time, or 3.5 years. The time is coming to an end shortly. There is just 3.5 years to go; during that time they shall be protected.
The Lord will take her to her place and there she will be cared for and protected from the presence of the serpent.
We have a God who neither changes His mind nor breaks a promise; how encouraging is that! (Numbers 23:19)
