Raising Lions and Eagles

Masters of their Domains

Eric and LaVonne love to raise believers up to become lions and eagles in the Spirit.

This means that they should know how to walk in the fulness of the authority and in all the rights and freedoms that Christ, the Lion of Judah, has won for them.

The lion and the eagle are the masters of their domains. Believers need to know how to exercise the dominion that Christ has won for them in the heavens and on the earth.

2 Peter 1:3 says that His divine power has given us everything we need for life and godliness through our knowledge of Him who called us by His own glory and goodness. That word ‘life’ in the Greek is not bios (natural life) but zoe (life of God). Believers in Jesus Christ can enjoy Kingdom living on the earth. It’s a dimension of Heaven in the now of our life experience on the earth. God wants us to walk in that dimension through Jesus Christ. It’s available. Jesus came preaching that the Kingdom of Heaven is here at hand. And, it is!

This does not mean escape from the trials of life; but authority and victory over them through faith in Jesus Christ and the power of the Holy Spirit. Jesus said: “These things I have spoken to you, that in Me you may have peace. In the world you will have tribulation; but be of good cheer, I have overcome the world.” (John 16:33)

Faith and character are proved and shaped in adversity. Far from running from adversity, the eagle flies right into the storms of life, using the winds of the storm to soar up and over them. Unike other birds that run from storms, eagles embrace and engage the storm, turning the storm to their advantage.

While it’s important that believers learn to flow in all the gifts of the Spirit and how to operate in the realm of the Spirit, it’s much more important that they learn to walk in the love, character and integrity of Jesus Christ, and develop patience, endurance and perseverance to maintain that walk, no matter what life throws at them.


The wicked man flees though no one pursues, but the righteous are as bold as a lion. (Proverbs 28:1)




But those who wait on the Lord Shall renew their strength;

They shall mount up with wings like eagles,

They shall run and not be weary, They shall walk and not faint. (Isaiah 40:31)
