| The Power of Twelve……
The individual parts are not greater than the whole. The whole can not operate to it’s fullest potential without all parts joining in the task of protecting and saving the whole nation from destruction.
The Old Testament refers to the number of twelve – the twelve tribes of Israel. One of those tribes was dedicated to serve as the religious servants to the whole worshiping community. The Levit’s were called to honor this calling within the framework of the 12. The One Body concept would include all 12 tribes.
Back to the story ….
The iDove or white racing pigeons is diving directly down as if it’s destination is to plunge directly into the lake rapidly approaching below.
I stood motionless and wasn’t even able to breath as I watched the unthinkable and unbelievable real life playing our before my eyes. Is was as if the Holy Spirit was speaking to me – pay close attention son, for you are slow of heart and I don’t want you to forget the lesson being played out to be burned into your heart planting a fire so intense it will erupt within your soul and rush to your lips and out of your mouth to a world so occupied with self and corruption it will cause my children to escape for a moment from bondage and slavery box they have placed themselves.
The iDove continued to propel itself with it’s power full wings and primary flight feathers to it’s maximum speed. I said to myself, I cannot watch this sure disaster yet I could not move my body or take my eyes off God’s creatures full filling the purpose for which they were created.
Oh My, at about 100 foot above the lake a huge Oak tree obscured my view! Surely at this late point these birds could no longer avoid crashing into the lake. I was able to move a smidgen, just in time to see the iDove descend below the trees lower drip line. 20 feet to impact!
The Twelve Tribes – No Way the Bird has 12 Tail Feathers to Guide it:
What happened next my eyes could not believe!! No way! This can’t be real! Ya gotta be kidding me! The iDove …
February 18, 2011 — Often in life we humans can not see what is right in front of our noses or hear the sounds crying out to be heard by our ears!
I wonder if anyone could see all of the symbology that was hidden in the story of the iDove and the iDeacon? In fact I can tell you the iDeacon could not see the fulness of the story of what was revealed in the that beautiful spring morning. The discovery of the “Truth” hidden in the story was to come only in time!
The “Already and the Not Yet” – Say What?
The iDeacon was amazed to discover he didn’t know what he already knew! It is a kind of example of the “Already” but “Not Yet”! Often our spirits already know what our conscious minds can not articulate.
The Kingdom of Heaven that is “Already” in 2011 but also the promised perfected Kingdom “Not Yet”.
One can’t get to the concept of Kingdom “Not Yet” without first traveling through the Kingdom “Already”. After Jesus was baptized by the John the Baptist in the Jordan river, upon coming out of the river a dove descended over him and Jesus said “the Kingdom of heaven is at hand” – acknowledging the “Already” exists.
Some may be wondering — What chew talking about – have you lost it????
When I was a boy, I lived in the second largest Belgium settlement in the USA. The national sport in Belgium is racing pigeons. The west end of my home town is where the Belgium’s settled and it seems every 10th house had a pigeon loft in the back yard when I was a boy.
About 3 PM every afternoon when the men came home from work at the Ball Band factory, the Belgium air force (homing pigeons) were let out to exercise. These pigeons would circle and circle around the home loft for 30 minutes to an hour each evening or until the fancier called then in by whistling or shaking the feed can.
I used to ride my bike through the alleys of the west end looking for pigeon lofts. Then one day my dad asked me if I wanted some pigeons. Razing and racing homing pigeons entered my blood stream and I began a journey to learn more than I could articulate would only discover years later that which I had come to already know.
The Power of Ten:
Do you know how many primary flight features a racing pigeon has? These are the features that propel the pigeon through the air. They rotate as the air passes through which propels them forward and creates a distinct sound like a wish. In fact it catches your attention when a flock of homing pigeons pass over head. You can tell the velocity of flight by the intensity of the sound.
Oh yea! You want to know how many primary flight features a racing pigeons has. They have ten. Now why would that fact be symbolic. It’s the number ten from ancient times that has been passed on from generation to generation that keeps one on the straight and narrow. It is in following this ten that can save ones life from destruction. It is this power of ten that can propel one at the speed necessary to escape the enemy that threatens ones life.
Remember, we are speaking of the hidden symbol buried in the story of the iDove! And the iDove is the symbol of the Spirit of God and the spirit of ones soul for each is created in the image of God! Could it be the Ten commandments provide humanity with most basic and necessary principles to be digested and understood? Could they contain the secret principles that when followed will lead one to encounter life, find liberty and the path that leads to happiness? And in the end opens the doorway to save ones soul from the evil one and find one standing at heavens door?

The Answer to a Prayer – the Story of the Vision
A messenger from above appeared to lead me through a story which would unfold before my eyes to teach me what I already knew but didn’t know I knew testifying to the reality we already know what we need to know but don’t know we already knew it. Breathless I watched! February 14, 2011 — The Revelation of “the War between the Flesh and the Spirit”. The iDove began to awaken the iDeacon to the reality of the continuing War as he observed an attack taking place in the beautiful clear blue bird sky above!
Oh what a beautiful day it was. Cool clear deep blue bird sky on a spring day. Not a cloud in sight. The iDeacon was observing his homing pigeons circle overhead. One could sense the joy these pigeons must feel as the air passed under their wings. God’s creatures gracefully fulfilling the purpose for which they were born as they flew higher and higher into the sky above.
Then in a blink of the eye, the iDeacon detected something had changed in the maneuvers of the birds high above. The smooth path of flight suddenly accelerated. The sound of their wings increased as their wing speed intensified. The smooth graceful circles were replaced by abrupt changes in direction of flight.
The iDeacon was stopped in his tracks as he searched for an answer for what had caused the change.
Without warning one of the white pigeons began a drive from about a 1000 feet straight down as fast as it could fly. How fast can they fly straight down – 100 200 mph? The dive took the iDeacon’s breath away and he frooze in his tracks. It was an amazing sight, the pigeon was really diving straight down. In fact straight down at a 5 acre lake below. Could this be real?
Was this white pigeon performing what appeared to be a suicide dive straight down into the water? There was a 100 foot tall white oak trees at the edge of the lake. As the bird approached 100 feet above the tree top of the white oak, the iDeacon finally saw the cause for this drastic life and death maneuver.
There directly on the tail of the pigeon was a coopers hawk. Both were diving straight down in a death dive.
Unbelievabale, at 100 feet they both still diving directly at the lake as fast as they could fly. At 50 feet the iDeacon could see the hawk extending his talons for the kill.
Oh my, an oak tree was between the iDeacon and the death dive. The birds disappeared behind the tree and iDeacon was sure there was no way these two birds would escape crashing into the lake.
Only God could create a creature capable of what the iDeacon saw next. As the white pigeon could be seen again as it descended below the canopy of the tree it made an unreal last second maneuver just before hitting the lake. It not only escaped the lake and had begun a climb back into the clear blue sky but it left the hawk in it’s dust.
No way, no way, this was unreal yet it happened and could not be denied. The pigeon really did leave the hawk in the dust using this amazing pullup maneuver.
Finally the iDeacon was able to take a new breath of air as he stood frozen in his tracks trying to absorb and digest the really real life and death struggle that had just been played out before his eyes.
In the coming days this event was played out again and gain in the iDeacon’s mind. Through this event the voice of the iDove began to speak and reveal the symbolic battle that took place that day and takes place everyday between the flesh and the spirit of our world.
iDove had hooked the iDeacon and the birth of this web page was sealed!
