Divine Will, the Thief in the Night and the Gathering of Eagles: A Hebrew Catholic Insight




Deuteronomy 32:11 describes the one who lives in Divine Will as a baby eagle (gosling) "As an eagle stirs up her nest, flutters over her young, spreads abroad her wings, takes them, bears them on her wings". The eagle represents the Divine Will soaring in the power of the Holy Spirit hovering or fluttering over the soul who lives in Divine Will.

This is linked to Genesis 1:2: "And the earth was without form, and void; and darkness was upon the face of the deep. And the Spirit of God fluttered upon the face of the waters." This alludes to the same concept of the fluttering or hovering of the Divine Will through the power of the Spirit of God over the 'face of the waters' (Our Lady in Eternity who lives in Divine Will). It also refers to Exodus 19:4: "Ye have seen what I did unto the Egyptians and how I bore you on eagles' wings and brought you unto myself."

Those who live in Divine Will are referred to as those who wait and watch for the Lord in the inner sanctuary. Isaiah 40:31"But those that wait for the LORD shall have new strength; they shall mount up with wings as eagles; they shall run and not be weary; and they shall walk, and not faint." They are the 36ers Lamed vavniks (lamed in Hebrew = 30 and vav =6) alluded to in Apocalypse 11:1 who remain in worship in the inner sanctuary of the Temple or Church when all the rest is destroyed. "And there was given me a reed like unto a rod, and he said unto me, Rise and measure the temple of God and the altar and those that worship therein." The measuring rod according to Jewish teaching is 6 cubits long and each cubit is made up of six hand breaths (6 x 6 = 36) and in Judaism 36 refers to the Lamed vavniks who live in God's Will as Adam lived in Divine Will in the Garden of Eden for 36 hours and as the 36 candles of Hannukah represent a manifestation of the Divine Will. 

 In the Talmud, in Tractate Sanhedrin 97b, it says, “The world must contain not less than thirty-six righteous men in each generation who are vouchsafed the sight of the Shekhinah’s countenance, for it is written [in Isaiah 30:18], Blessed are all they that wait [lo] for him; the numerical value of ‘lo’ is thirty-six.” In this passage, the Hebrew word “for him” is “lo” which in Hebrew is spelled lamed vav, לו , that is 36. By reading the verse from Isaiah as if there were a comma between “wait” and “for Him,” [לו] he gives it the meaning of “Blessed are all who wait, [the] 36.” Luisa wrote 36 volumes of the Book of Heaven and there are 36 rays on the Divine Will medal of Luisa.  In Hebrew we could write the first two words of Luisa as לוּ [Lu] which is 36 and can also mean "for him" and the second half of her name as isha [אשה] which means woman thus she is the 36-woman and the woman for him. Isha [אשה] in gematria is 306.

Psalm 100:3 commands, “Know that YHVH [the LORD] is Elohim [God]. He made us, and we are `lo’.” The Jewish mesorah or tradition regarding the spelling and pronunciation of the Hebrew Bible instructs us that the word “lo” is spelled lamed-aleph [לא] but is read as if it was spelled lamed-vav [לו]. Thus the phrase in Psalm 100:3 means, “We are His,” but it is written as if it means, “We are not.” ִIf one wants to be “lo” (lamed- vav), that is “His,” one should be “lo” (lamed-aleph), that is “Not” or "Nothing". This means that a lamed vavnik is one who is very little, hidden and humble.

There are two categories of 36ers or lamed vavniks. The first are the lamed vavniks Tzadikkim (righteous ones) who follow God's Will in an almost perfect manner which can be found among both Jewish and Christian saints ( mostly unknown and not canonised). The second and higher but more humble category are the lamed vavnik kadoshim (holy ones) who live or dwell in the Divine Will by faith on earth who are able to be mystically present in all generations from Adam till the last man.

Again in Apocalypse  12:14 we see those who live in Divine Will connected with eagle wings. "And to the woman were given two wings of the great eagle that she might fly from the presence of the serpent into the wilderness, into her place, where she is nourished for a time and times." This causes us to reflect on the mysterious saying of Jesus recorded in Matthew and Luke. Matthew 24:28: "Wheresoever the body shall be, there shall the eagles also be gathered together." and Luke 17:37: "And they answered and said unto him, Where, Lord? And he said unto them, Where the body is, there will the eagles be gathered together."

Many have translated and interpreted this as eagles or vultures who eat from a dead carcass or body. However I believe that the body here alludes to both the Church as the Body of the Messiah and the Eucharist where we gather to receive his Body. These verses reveal to us that those souls who live in Divine Will shall gather in the apocalyptic times to wait on and for the Lord with his Body the Church and become intercessors in Eucharistic Adoration in Divine Will. They live and abide in the Eucharist and are one with the blessings that flow from the monstrance and tabernacle into the world and to all generations. 

In this way they soar as an eagle in union with Jesus, Mary, Joseph and Luisa and all the other 36ers in Divine Will to all generations. This period is the time of the hidden or intermediate coming of the Lord as a 'Thief in the Night' who will appear as a lightning flash (the Divine Man revealed in his ten sefirot), not his final one in his flesh at the end of the world. This occurs at the end of the fifth period of Church history called the Church of Sardis. Apocalypse 3:3: "Remember, therefore, of that which thou hast received and heard and hold to it and repent. If therefore thou shalt not watch, I will come to thee as a thief, and thou shalt not know what hour I will come upon thee." 


The so-called "taken", referred to by some Protestants in regards to the "rapture", most likely refers to those taken by the Lord to the wilderness to live in Divine Will and to lead the battle for God's Kingdom which is the Divine Will reigning on earth as it is in Heaven.  They are the bridesmaids with oil waiting, watching and prepared for the coming of the Bridegroom in the Night. Merakhafet (fluttering or hovering) is the 18th word of the Torah and 18 means Life (Chai). Thus when we flutter in the Divine Will in the Holy Spirit we create Divine Life for souls. And 18 x 2 = 36 which is double life which alludes to the concept of Divine Lives (life in the plural which in Hebrew is Chayyim). The feminine of life or Chai is Chaya (plural Chayot or living creatures). In the Bible it refers to four Chayot of which one is represented by the Eagle. I believe this Chaya that is the Eagle is Luisa Piccarreta in Eternity. Let us desire to soar and hover in the Divine Will like the baby eagle resting on the Eagle's wings. 

The Peshitta Bible translates the Aramiac/Syriac of Apocalyse 8:13 as: "...And I beheld, and heard an eagle having a tail red as it were blood, flying through the midst of heaven, saying with a loud voice, Woe, woe, woe to those who dwell on the earth, by reason of the other sounds of the trumpets of the three angels which are yet to sound!..". This would seem to allude to one who lives in Divine Will at the highest Zenith (possibly a future Pope) at the time of the coming of the comet (the tail of blood) and connected with the proclamation of the last three Marian dogmas of Our Lady as Co-redemptrix, Mediatrix of all Graces and Advocate towards the height of Jacob's trouble.
