A Bald Eagle, a Black Cat, and a Nation

This may be one of the most interesting blogs the Father has ever given me.  Now and then something seems to pop out in front of my eyes. Friday a bald eagle caught my attention on the Virginia Pilot, and not only mine but thousands on social media.

“Matt Seniuk, a physics teacher at Norview High School, saw the crowd on Monticello on his way to coach football at Blair Middle. He thought there might have been a fight or an accident, then glimpsed the big bird.

“It was surreal. You’re right in the middle of downtown, almost,” Seniuk said. Stranger still: the bird seemed unperturbed by the onlookers. (Think trump)

“It was going to enjoy its meal as long as nobody was bothering it.”

People held their cameras and videoed this eagle, as traffic was at a standstill. The bald eagle seemed rather out of place in front of Advance Auto Parts at 26th Street and Monticello Avenue. I believe the Kingdom of Yah is getting ready to advance and become stronger—each auto/ministry more one. This bird with a five to seven-foot wing span had captured its prey and was devouring a rather large black cat. Both the black cat, the number 26 and the name Monticello stood out to me.

“The numerical value of the Divine and Most Holy Name: YHWH (Yahweh: yohd, hey, vav, hey) is twenty-six. The Torah was given on Mt. Sinai in the 26th generation of mankind. (There were 10 generations from Adam to Noach, 10 generations from Noach to Abraham, and another 6 generations from Abraham to Moses.) Means oneness (YHWH is One [Dt. 6:4]).

I want you to think about the Torah being given in the 26th generation and also about two mountains—actually, four, when we throw America into the mix.

Our great and awesome Father cannot be contained. Heaven is His throne, and the earth is His footstool. He places earthly kings on thrones, and He removes them. He creates light and darkness—good and evil, and He is merciful—slow to anger and abounding in love. America is where I was born and raised, and I have watched it drastically decline in my lifetime. It went from one nation under God to one nation over God– having many gods. Right now we have a president in America that is more hated than any other leader before him. He has no regard for man-pleasing or the fear of man. He eats his prey for dinner like that eagle, whether it be the NFL, Hollywood, the food industry, big pharma, and crooked politicians, which will continue to crumble before our Messiah returns.

Yes, Trump has certain qualities that may seem boisterous, over the top, but I believe Abba is using him. Regardless if we dislike him or respect him, all should be in prayer for him. We are commanded too. I believe he is a key to Babylon falling. This beastly system is being attacked under his administration. However, there is a swamp going on inside Our Father’s House too. Many have arrived on the scene to teach and help clean up the mess. They appear as doctors, nurses, and EMS drivers coming to resuscitate and breathe new life into those who have been blinded by the prosperity message filled with itching ear words of lawlessness and ease. Some coming to help are like the prophets of old who had to give tough messages at times to kings who had robbed the poor to build their own kingdoms. We see it in His house, but like that eagle, Abba is devouring it. There is a young Joash spirit coming.

“Fallen, fallen is Babylon the great! She has become a dwelling place of demons and a prison of every unclean spirit, and a prison of every unclean and hateful bird. “For all the nations have drunk of the wine of the passion of her immorality, and the kings of the earth have committed acts of immorality with her, and the merchants of the earth have become rich by the wealth of her sensuality.

And then there is verse four and five, “I heard another voice from heaven, saying, “Come out of her, my people, so that you will not participate in her sins and receive of her plagues; for her sins have piled up as high as heaven, and God has remembered her iniquities” (Revelations 18:1-5).

We are in a preoperational period, but one day . . . yes, one day “The earth will be filled With the knowledge of the glory of God, As the waters cover the sea” (Habakkuk 2:14 NASB).

I see multiple Christian empires coming into the humbleness of His Torah. I believe they will fall and disperse and become smaller pockets of light.

As out of place as that eagle seemed in front of the auto store, both our nation and His Body is preparing for an overhaul.  That eagle could have landed anywhere but it landed in Virginia in front of signs ringing freedom! Freedom in His house. Virginia was the first of the thirteen colonies established here in America. Joseph’s son Ephraim was the 13th tribe. The eagle, our national symbol, is sitting at 26th and Monticello. Our Father’s Torah is too.

“Thomas Jefferson’s plantation home was given two names. Monticello was just one name used for two mountains, the other was Hermitage—one was ‘high’ and one was ‘low.’ High Mountain was referred to by Jefferson as Monticello, which he acquired in 1777.”  John Quincy Adams also had a plantation home called Hermitage and eerily enough, they both died on the fiftieth anniversary of the signing of the Declaration of Independence, which Jefferson had written. What does Hermitage stand for?

“Although today’s meaning is usually a place where a hermit lives in seclusion from the world, hermitage was more commonly used to mean a settlement where a person or a group of people lived religiously, in seclusion. Originally, the first hermitages were located in natural caves, temple ruins, and even simple huts in forests and deserts.” Wiki.

Think about a tribal people who have a form of government, His Torah—His Declaration—His high mountain. We are forming communities like Hermitage. An assembly of Believers that stand together through thick and thin– governed by Apostles and leaders who ensure His Word stands as the Authority? It’s happening and swiftly.

There were two mountains spoken of in the Bible.

“It shall come about, when the LORD your God brings you into the land where you are entering to possess it, that you shall place the blessing on Mount Gerizim and the curse on Mount Ebal” (Deuteronomy 11:29 NASB).

They say, the mountain with blessings spoken over it is plush—green—covered in vegetation and life, but what about the mountain that had the curses spoken over it? Not one thing grew. It was as bald as that eagle eating a dead cat. Stay with me.

When you cross the Jordan, these shall stand on Mount Gerizim to bless the people: Simeon, Levi, Judah, Issachar, Joseph, and Benjamin. “For the curse, these shall stand on Mount Ebal: Reuben, Gad, Asher, Zebulun, Dan, and Naphtali”  (Deuteronomy 27:11-13).

Six of the twelve tribes stood on one mountain and spoke curses, and the other six spoke blessings. The choice is ours. As I pictured six Jewish men standing on a mountain and yelling out these radical blessings at the top of their lungs, I was captured by the hidden message. Isn’t Abba saying come to the mountain of the Lord Adonai?

“Now it will come about that In the last days The mountain of the house of the LORD Will be established as the chief of the mountains, And will be raised above the hills; And all the nations will stream to it” (Isaiah 2:2).

The Blessing shouters:

Our first name is Simeon and it means “Hearing and Hearing with acceptance.

When the Torah/law was given the people said, “All that the LORD has spoken we will do!” (Exodus 19:8).

And again they proclaimed the same message. “Go near and hear all that the LORD our God will say, and speak to us all that the LORD our God will speak to you, and we will hear and do it.’ (Deuteronomy 5:7).

The second one out of the six was Levi which means joined.

The third is JudahLet God be praised!

Our next name is Issachar which means, “He Is Wages. There Is Recompense.”

When we hear and we obey, we receive a great reward. YES! There is recompense in keeping His Torah. Why would you throw away gold, wisdom, restoration of your soul and great reward? You wouldn’t. Shout with me and these men from the mountain of blessings.

The last names on the mountain of blessing are Joseph and Benjamin— Joseph means May Yah add. May He increase. Oh, and He is! The lost sheep of the House of Israel are coming home in droves. They are returning to the sweetness of His Law/ Torah. His instructions for a blessed life. His Calendar and His holy days.

Benjamin means Son of my Right Hand.  Yeshua is at the “right” hand of the Father making intercession for us. “But from now on THE SON OF MAN WILL BE SEATED AT THE RIGHT HAND of the power OF GOD” (Luke 22:69 NASB).

I found the multiple signs in the window of this business very interesting Notice from the photos below that the words FREE in all caps appears behind the bald eagle.

FREE battery testing. How are our hearts? His Torah, He said would no longer be written in stone but on our hearts.



FREE wiper blade installation for the windshield. How’s our vision? Can we see or do we need eye salve like those in the church Yeshua mentioned?

            I advise you to buy from Me gold refined by fire so that you may become rich, and white garments so that you may clothe yourself, and that the shame of your nakedness will not be revealed; and eye salve to anoint your eyes so that you may see. Those whom I love, I reprove and discipline; therefore be zealous and repent” (Revelations 3:18-19).

The last sign read FREE alternator/starter testing.

What is the definition of an alternator?

Electricity. A generator of alternating current.

Do we have the Holy Spirit/Ruach HaKodesh along with our truth?

He will baptize you with the Holy Spirit and fire. “His winnowing fork is in His hand to thoroughly clear His threshing floor, and to gather the wheat into His barn; but He will burn up the chaff with unquenchable fire” (Luke 3:16-17).

This whole scene seems to say something to me about freedom. He who the Son sets free is free indeed. The Son is the Word (Torah) Made Flesh. By keeping His Word and His Commandments we gain life and freedom.

An eagle eating a black cat may have a deeper meaning.  A black cat has many crazy symbols due to superstition, but it also is the logo for a group of people called anarchist.


“Since the 1880s, the color black has been associated with anarchism. The black cat, in an alert, fighting stance, was later adopted as an anarchist symbol.” Wikipedia.

What is anarchy?

“Anarchy 1.    A state of disorder due to the absence or no recognition of authority. Synonyms: lawlessness.” Lawlessness is Torahlessness.

“Because lawlessness will multiply, the love of many will grow cold” (Matthew 24:12).

There are a people who He will call His own and a people He will protect and bring into His wedding Chamber. He knows them. They are sealed. They have kept His commandments. They uphold His Torah. I want to be one of those eagles, don’t you?

The Father himself used the eagle to describe His power and to enforce His covenant. “Thus you shall say to the house of Jacob and tell the sons of Israel: ‘You yourselves have seen what I did to the Egyptians, and how I bore you on eagles’ wings, and brought you to Myself. ‘Now then, if you will indeed obey My voice and keep My covenant, then you shall be My own possession among all the peoples, for all the earth is Mine; and you shall be to Me a kingdom of priests and a holy nation” (Exodus 3:6).

May the truth devour everything false like leaven that permeates dough. “The kingdom of heaven is like leaven, which a woman took and hid in three pecks of flour until it was all leavened” (Matthew 13:33).

May we soar like the eagles we were called to be and may we mount up and sound the alarm.

    This was very good. The Lord is definitely with President Trump.

    The Lord has had me hitchhike the United States for most of 21 years now. One time I got dropped off in Norris, Montana. I walked north of town a mile or so and, as I walked over this small hill, I saw this Golden Eagle. Usually, if an eagle or any bird sees me walk close to them, they immediately fly away. This Golden Eagle didn’t even bat an eyelash. Someone had run over this deer and that Golden Eagle was enjoying a really good meal right there in the ditch. I walked past the eagle and the eagle just looked at me, eating the carcass and enjoying itself. I thought it was pretty funny.

    I think it is interesting that the name of your blog is Obadiah’s Cave. Just a day or two, I was watching this program on TV. This guy discovered this place in Israel and they called it John the Baptist’s Cave. It is obvious that the Lord wants me to read your blog.

    Sometimes the Lord calls his prophets to be in solitude with Him (like in a cave). My life has been very separate from society for many years. Right now I am with friends here in northern California; I have hitchhiked back and forth between here and Wyoming and Montana and Idaho. They have a motel and a cow-calf herd; I have helped them feed cattle, work cattle, brand calves, work on the properties, etc. I spend a lot of time walking the sagebrush and walking in the hills right near their home–next to the Warner Mountains. I sometimes wonder why the Lord has me live such a solitary life, but this is what He wants of me for now.

      Tim it is a pleasure to meet you. I was just reading your bio. WOW! Sounds like an incredible journey. I think Abba gets many ppl alone for a season. Think Moses. Joseph in the prison being tried and prepared for a calling. when you have to store food up and when famine comes ppl come to you to but food, they eventually run out of money. How do you handle ppl giving you everything they’ve worked for in order to eat. They paid with silver and gold, cattle and sheep, herbs and oils etc… Look at all the different people groups The Father of Lights surrounded him with. He learned way more in the prison than he did the palace. Nice to meet you Tim. Hope to hear back from you again.
