Nate Johnston: "I Heard a War Cry from the Eagles!"

Nate Johnston
Aug 19, 2023

From the Desks of Steve Shultz and Julie A. Smith:

Steve ShultzWe always look forward to what Nate and Christy Johnston have to share with God's people.

There is a new sound the Lord is releasing through the Body of Christ...and here is a word of the Lord about this through Nate:

"'Suddenly,' says the Lord, 'a new cry shall come upon you. You shall feel a bubbling up from your spirit. It's a cry of courage; it's a cry of boldness; it's a cry that's going to come against the lukewarm sound that the Church has adopted through culture. And the war cry of My eagles shall rise up, and they shall release the sound of purity and a raging fire that shall usher the Church into a new day and standard, and lead the Church higher.'"

Steve ShultzOh, that is so, so good!

In a dream some nights ago, I kept hearing this Scripture: "For the eyes of the LORD roam throughout the earth, so that He may strongly support those whose heart is completely His..." (2 Chronicles 16:9). Then I saw the Lord as a large Eagle that was brooding over the earth, looking for those with a pure heart. The Eagle started swooping down over the nations of the earth with His talons extended, releasing a war cry.

In response, other eagles that were alone and dormant suddenly began to cry out, joining Him in the skies to unite together with the other eagles.

I believe this dream is what God is doing right now in this hour in the earth. I believe that the Lord is brooding over the earth, looking for His war eagles who will rise up, go to new heights for Him, and begin to release a cry over the nations. They are a prophetic company of people who have been in hiding, who have been alone. But the Lord is calling them out of hiding in this hour, and He is joining them together for a mighty purpose in the earth.

The purpose of the eagles is to release the strategy and wisdom of the Lord, the new sound, and the war cry that will awaken God's people who have been asleep, sifting out what is pure from impure. The call of the eagles is a call to the Body of Christ to come up higher in this time.

Far too many eagles have been in isolation, and the "brooding" is the shaking and the deliverance to call them out of dormancy. It's time for the eagles to gather again. It's time for the eagles to spread their wings. It's time for the eagles to release their cry. (Photo via Wallpaper Flare)

The Wings of Prophets Restored

Earlier in the year, as we were driving from Colorado to New Mexico, I had this vision of an incredible golden eagle that had its wings spread, but its bones were brittle, its muscles weak, and every second or third feather was missing.

I asked, "Lord, what am I seeing?" He told me that the eagles had been under attack; their feathers had been ripped and torn. I knew that He was speaking about the prophets—the pure prophets in states, cities and nations of the earth who have had their feathers plucked by the enemy. They have been bullied and under fire by the Jezebel spirit that has been trying to seduce them into compromise and apathy, and by the religious spirit that has been trying to discredit and assassinate this prophetic company. There's been an onslaught of territorial spirits and principalities in regions that have been trying to stop these eagles from soaring higher and releasing their cry.

You see, you need all your feathers in your wings to be able to soar. Also, the feathers of an eagle are its glory. The enemy has been trying to strip the prophets of their glory, because a prophet without his or her glory is just an Ichabod that carries no authority or power to operate in signs and wonders, or the pure word of the Lord.

Many eagles have being silent; they've lost their cry, and they've lost their sound. But the Lord is restoring the eagles to their posts right now, and He's restoring them to their company.

He's brooding over you. Even right now as you're reading this, I pray that you'd feel a rumbling in your belly. I pray that you would feel the Spirit of God beginning to move and tremble the waters of your spirit, causing you to come alive.

Eagles' Nests Are Forming

I pray right now that the Lord will begin to unite you with your company that God is raising up. There are eagles' nests that are emerging around the earth right now. He's raising up pure companies of people who have no motive and no agenda except to release the word of the Lord into the earth.

I believe there is a reformation that is coming to the prophetic company. It's like when the sons of the prophets came to Elijah and said, "Look, the place where we meet with you is too small for us" (see 2 Kings 6:1). He is putting an appetite in them that is saying, "What we have is too small! We must accommodate what God is doing! We must expand; we must build!" And the Lord is beginning to migrate them into position for this great move of God.

Lastly, God is raising up the eagles to release a mighty bone-shaking war cry in the places of the earth where the prophets have been underground, where the prophets have been timid and scared and afraid of releasing the word of the Lord. And they will stand to their feet once again! (Photo via Pxfuel)

"Suddenly," says the Lord, "a new cry shall come upon you. You shall feel a bubbling up from your spirit. It's a cry of courage; it's a cry of boldness; it's a cry that's going to come against the lukewarm sound that the Church has adopted through culture. And the war cry of My eagles shall rise up, and they shall release the sound of purity and a raging fire that shall usher the Church into a new day and standard, and lead the Church higher."

Eagles, Shake Off the Weariness!

Now eagles, let me prophesy. It is time for the tiredness and the weariness to break off you. It is time for your wings to be repaired. It is time for you to soar again. It is time for your muzzled and silenced voice to begin to release the war cry in the name of Jesus.

I hear the Lord speaking Psalm 103:5—that you will renew your youth like the eagle's. Even right now, let renewal come. Let revival begin to take place on the inside of you. Even right now, let that youthfulness come over you and a fresh wind come upon you that will take you higher.

I hear the Lord say that you will mount up with wings as eagles today—yes—mount up with wings as eagles, and break free from the place that you've been in that has kept you at a low altitude.

"It is time to come up to the high places and begin to release your war cry again," says Lord.

This is what you were created for. You were not created to cower; you were not created to stay silent. You were created in this hour to be the eagle of the Lord that releases the voice of the Lord into the earth!
