4 He shall cover thee with his feathers, and under his wings shalt thou trust: his truth shall be thy shield and buckler. [Psalms, ch. 91].
"The Philippine eagle (Pithecophaga jefferyi), also known as the monkey-eating eagle or great Philippine eagle, is an eagle of the family Accipitridae endemic to forests in the Philippines. It has brown and white-coloured plumage, and a shaggy crest, and generally measures 86 to 102 cm (2.82 to 3.35 ft) in length and weighs 4.7 to 8.0 kilograms (10.4 to 17.6 lb). It is considered the largest of the extant eagles in the world in terms of length and wing surface, with the Steller's sea eagle and the harpy eagle being larger in terms of weight and bulk. Among the rarest and most powerful birds in the world, it has been declared the Philippine national bird. It is critically endangered, mainly due to massive loss of habitat due to deforestation in most of its range. Killing a Philippine eagle is punishable under Philippine law by 12 years in jail and heavy fines."
I don-t believe that the EAGLES of which Jesus spoke were the Roman soldiers. It is most plausible that in them Christ wanted to represents the believers and the saints, or the angels protecting His body, the church of Christ [see the comments also]:
Above comment under the article:You don’t understand Jesus’s answer because you don’t understand the question. In Luke 17:37, the question is “Where, Lord”. Most believe this to be a question of [where will this happen], but that is not what they are asking, rather they are asking [where will they be taken]. Jesus’s answer coincides with 1 Thess 4:17. Jesus says in Matthew 24:28 and Like 17:37 (wheresoever the body or carcase is, there will the eagles be gathered together. Jesus is referring to the rapture of the physical body and he states that wherever you (your body is, it will be where the eagles gather when you are taken). Question: Where do eagles gather? That’s right, very high; 15000 feet and are very social birds). The use of the word body in Luke and carcase in Matthew is descriptive of one who is mortal; alive but can perish versus those who are already dead. Now look at what 1 Thessalonians 4;17 says, ” Then we which are (alive) and remain shall be caught up together with them in the clouds, to meet the Lord in the air; and so shall we ever be with the Lord. I hope this helps. I do have a greater concern for the church body…that is when people believe the rapture will happen. read Matthew, chapter 24. Jesus lays out everything that has to happen before the rapture of the church. We will go through some stuff; at least the first 6 seals. This includes those things described inMatthew 24:29 and Revelation 6:12-17. The good news is that we appear in Heaven in Revelation 7:9 after the 144,000 are sealed, escaping the 7 trumpets and the 7 last plagues. Prepare yourselves now. Flee from every temptation. Bury yourself in God’s word. Preach the gospel to anyone that has an ear. Be right and do right so you can be found blameless before our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. God bless you all."
