What do the eagles represent in Ezekiel 17?

Ezekiel chapter 17 is the Parable of Two Eagles. The first eagle represents King Nebuchadnezzar who was coming to destroy Israel. The Second eagle represents Egypt, another of the super powers of the day, who Israel was allying herself to.

  1. In verse 22 God used the word also when taking a branch of the cedar. This word establishes an equality with the first to take a branch of the cedar in this parable; a great eagle. God was second to do so and this equality can only be met by Jesus. Jesus was the first great eagle. The cedar is God’s Temple and a branch of his temple is Christianity. Young twigs are Jesus’ church in its youth. He planted the seeds of Christianity in a Nation of emmigrants. Many feathers is many people, divers colours is different nations, seed of the land is freedom. The second great eagle was Satan bringing only socialism; see my web page for the rest.
