hath deceived thee, and the pride of thine heart, O thou that dwellest in the clefts of the rock, that holdest the height
of the hill: though shouldest make thy nest as high as the eagle, I will bring thee down from thence, saith the LORD. Jeremiah
July 20th 2009 is the 40-year
anniversary of the Apollo 11 landing on the moon and Neil Armstrong's famous words to Houston, "...the Eagle has landed."
Here is an excerpt from an article on the NASA website entitled July 20, 1969: One Giant Leap for Mankind.
(Excerpt from July
20, 1969: One Giant Leap For Mankind1)
When it comes time to set Eagle down in the Sea of Tranquility, Armstrong improvises, manually piloting the
ship past an area littered with boulders. During the final seconds of descent, Eagle's computer is sounding alarms.
It turns out to be a simple case of the computer trying to do too
many things at once, but as Aldrin will later point out, "unfortunately it came up when we did not want to be trying
to solve these particular problems."
the lunar module lands at 4:18 p.m EDT, only 30 seconds of fuel remain. Armstrong radios "Houston, Tranquility
Base here. The Eagle has landed." Mission control erupts in celebration as the tension breaks, and a controller
tells the crew "You got a bunch of guys about to turn blue, we're breathing again."
Armstrong will later confirm that landing was his biggest concern,
saying "the unknowns were rampant," and "there were just a thousand things to worry about."
At 10:56 p.m. EDT Armstrong is ready to plant the first human foot
on another world. With more than half a billion people watching on television, he climbs down the ladder and proclaims: "That's
one small step for a man, one giant leap for mankind."
Aldrin joins him shortly, and offers a simple but powerful description of the lunar surface: "magnificent
desolation." They explore the surface for two and a half hours, collecting samples and taking photographs.
They leave behind an American flag, a patch
honoring the fallen Apollo 1 crew, and a plaque on one of Eagle's legs. It reads, "Here men from the planet Earth first
set foot upon the moon. July 1969 A.D. We came in peace for all mankind."

As I was talking with a sister in Christ about the "Eagle has landed" quote, it was brought to her
remembrance and back to my attention about the Michael Boldea Jr. vision called "The Eagle and the Serpents"
which can be found at www.handofhelp.com.
Here is the vision in its entirety, as not to lose any of the contexts or meaning, pay close attention, I
(personally and my sister in Christ) believe this might be worth paying closer attention to in the very near future.
The Eagle and the Serpents2
(The Angel said, "this has been revealed to you, that you may know, the first bite has been, the second
is yet to come, and the third will be its destruction.")
Psalm 34:7-8, "The angel of the Lord encamps all around those who fear Him, and delivers them. Oh, taste
and see that the Lord is good; Blessed is the man who trusts in Him! Oh, fear the Lord, you His saints! There is no want to
those who fear Him."
Upon my return to
the United States in late August, I had a very vivid and troubling dream. I shared it with the staff here in Wisconsin, and
with a few other brothers, but continued to pray and seek direction from God as to whether or not I should include it in the
At the staff's urging, and feeling
a release from the Lord, I have included this dream in this issue of the newsletter.
I dreamt I was walking through a sparsely wooded forest, and suddenly my attention was drawn to an
eagle flying high above the tree line. It was a beautiful sight to behold as the eagle rode the thermals, flying in slow lazy
arks across the blue sky. I began to quicken my pace, and keep up with the eagle's flight, all the while keeping an eye on
it, noticing that it was slowly descending toward the earth. I followed it for a long time, its descend not being sudden but
Finally I came upon
a small clearing, where there were no trees, just some bushes on the edges of the green grass. The eagle landed
in the clearing, and began to look around not seeming to notice me.
As I began to wonder what the relevance of this was, a man dressed in white, hands clasped in front
of him, appeared beside me, and said, "Be patient, in due time you will see the purpose."
I was silent as I watched the eagle, and was beginning to grow somewhat impatient, when suddenly,
it seemed out of nowhere, a brown snake lunged at the eagle, and bit down on its left wing. The snake's strike was very quick
and very precise. The eagle reacted without delay, clawing and pecking at the snake cutting deep wounds in its underbelly,
trying to defend itself and ward off the serpent. Just as it seemed the eagle was winning the battle, and the serpent was
retreating, another serpent appeared, red and black diagonal stripes covering its body, and without hesitation struck out
at the eagle's right wing, biting down, and refusing to release. After a momentary tug of war the serpent tore off flesh and
feathers, leaving a large wound on the eagle's right wing. The second bite was much worse then the first, and for an instant
the eagle was stunned. Then a serpent much larger than the previous two, made up of many colors, slithered toward the eagle,
opened its jaws, and lunged, taking the whole of the eagle's head in its mouth before biting down.
The serpents retreated and the man who had been standing beside me, walked to the eagle, knelt down,
picked it up, and held it in his cupped hands. The look of grief on his face was beyond any I have seen in my life. Just seeing
the look on the man's face broke your heart.
man continued to look down at the eagle, and with a pained voice said, "The true tragedy, is that at any moment it could
have sought the safety of the above, it could have soared toward the heavens and would have found its protection. This has
been revealed to you, that you may know, the first bite has been, the second is yet to come, and the third will be its destruction."
I watched for a long time as the man held the
eagle in the palms of his hands, the pained expression never leaving his features. I was too stunned to speak, or ask any
questions, what I had seen having seemed so real. The feeling followed me into my waking hours as well, and each time I closed
my eyes I saw the entire scene play before my eyes throughout the day.
One thing that I feel I need to share with you is that the second bite seemed to come from an unexpected
place. Although I have my own opinion concerning this, I choose to keep it to myself, because expounding on personal opinion
is a dangerous thing when it comes to things that God reveals.
I was hesitant in sharing this dream, because I know some will perceive it as a reason to fear. It is not
a reason to fear, but a reason to be stirred, and emboldened for the kingdom of God. The reality, is that these are the times
we are living in, and I for one am thankful to God for his forewarnings, knowing that His children will never be unaware of
what the future holds. All I can do is urge you to be watchful, and diligent in your prayers to the Father. This nation, today,
is more in need of prayer on its behalf than at any time in its history. It is the prayers of His children that compels God
to relent, and tarry. Stand in the gap, you are precious in the eyes of God, and He hears your heartfelt supplications.
Joel 2:12-14, "Now, therefore, says the Lord, turn to Me with
all your heart, with fasting, with weeping, and with mourning. So rend your heart, and not your garments; Return to the Lord
your God for He is gracious and merciful, slow to anger, and of great kindness; and He relents from doing harm."
With love in Christ,

In this vision we see an eagle has landed also....
This brings me to my last quote of interest.
"Mark my words," Biden told
donors at a Seattle fund-raiser Sunday night.
will not be six months before the world tests Barack Obama like they did John Kennedy. The world
is looking. We're about to elect a brilliant 47-year-old senator president of the United States of America.
"Watch. We're going to have an international crisis,
a generated crisis, to test the mettle of this guy.
"And he's going to need help . . . to stand with him. Because it's not going to be apparent initially;
it's not going to be apparent that we're right."3

the challenge that later sent up Apollo 11
+ In the vision of Michael Boldea Jr. the eagle lands and is then shortly
thereafter interpreted to be involved in an international crisis, a generated crisis.
I only bring these different points out for others to ponder on. There is probably more, I am hoping
others will find more dots to contect.
an eye out for tomorrow, I am sure at this point most of us already are everyday, but tomorrow seems to have some interesting
attachments to it.
God Bless, daniel
