Shadows of Messiah - Eagle

God is likened unto an eagle

Deu 32:11  As the eagle stirs up its nest; it hovers over its young; it spreads out its wings and takes it, and bears it on its wing.

Exo 19:5  And now if listening you will listen to My voice, and will keep My covenant, you shall become a special treasure to Me above all the nations, for all the earth is Mine.
Exo 19:6  And you shall become a kingdom of priests for Me, a holy nation. These are the words which you shall speak to the sons of Israel.

Psa 103:3  He who forgives all your iniquities; who heals all your diseases;
Psa 103:4  who redeems your life from destruction; who crowns you with kindness and tender mercies;

Samson dwelling in the cleft of the Rock (Messiah) at עיטם ‘Etam’ (Eagles wings).

The root word of עיטם ‘Etam’ is עט ‘et.’

Here we see that the word Etam means an eagle’s wings in the sense of wrapping.  Samson dwelt in the cleft of the Rock (Rock = Messiah 1 Cor 10:4) in the city of Etam (wrapped in eagles wings).  It is also interesting that the word for pen/stylus comes from this same root word and is associated with the eagle’s/bird of prey’s talons.

Another association of the eagles wing’s is the Word.  Abiding under the shadow of His wings = abiding in the Word/Messiah.

Dwelling in the cleft of the Rock is also teaching about intimate relationship with the Almighty.

Exo 33:19  And He said, I will cause all My goodness to pass before your face. And I will call out the name of Jehovah before your face. And I will be gracious to whom I will be gracious, and I will have mercy on whom I will have mercy.
Exo 33:20  And He said, You are not able to see My face; for no man can see Me and live.
Exo 33:21  And Jehovah said, Behold, a place by Me! And you shall stand on a rock.
Exo 33:22  And as My glory is passing it will be that I will put you in a cleft of the rock; and I will cover My hand over you during My passing.
Exo 33:23  And I will remove My hand, and you shall see My back; but My face cannot be seen.
