Welcome to Ruach ha-Kodesh ( ??? ???? ) Ministries is a place where Kym and Nel share the word of the Lord via teaching and prophecy.
For reference here is our statement of faith.
(ROO-akh hak-KOH-desh) Holy Spirit; the Holy Ghost (Luke 3:16; 11:13; Eph. 1:13; 4:30; 1 Thess. 4:8; Titus 3:5; 1 Cor. 6:9; Jude 1:20). Occurs more than 90 times in the Brit Chadashah. Note that kodesh is an adjective meaning holy that agrees with the noun it modifies. The accent is milel on the first syllable after the article (as opposed to milra accent on penultimate syllable).
The Australian Wedge-tailed Eagle (Aquila audax latin for Bold Eagle. Audax is also the Latin root word for the English word Audacious which means showing a willingness to take surprisingly bold risk). Our logo is the Wedge-tailed Eagle which signifies the Prophetic ministry from down-under. The Wedge-tailed Eagle soars and sees with sharp eyes. It will often dive from a great height and strike its prey; even venomous snakes are no match for the Bold Eagle, who will make their prey meat for the Eagles young in the nest.
The photo on this site of the juvenile Wedge-tailed Eagle is a photo Kym took a couple of years ago.
First, because it soars upward, the eagle is a symbol of the resurrection or ascension of Christ. By extension, the eagle symbolises baptised Christians, who have symbolically died and risen with Christ.
Secondly, the eagle is a symbol is John the Evangelist/Prophet, author of the fourth gospel and the Revelation. The eagle represents John because of his lofty and soaring gospel (it is much more theological in nature than the other three). John was likened to the eagle because he aspired to soar ever higher seeking the truths of God.
Isaiah 40:31 But those who hope in the Lord will renew their strength. They will soar on wings like eagles; they will run and not grow weary, they will walk and not be faint.
The Eagle lectern is common in Anglican and some other Church buildings. An eagle lectern is a lectern in the shape of an eagle on whose outstretched wings the Bible rests.
The symbolism of the eagle derived from the belief that the bird was capable of staring into the sun and that Christians similarly were able to gaze unflinchingly at the revelation of the divine word. Alternatively, the eagle was believed to be the bird that flew highest in the sky and was therefore closest to heaven, and symbolised the carrying of the word of God to the four corners of the world.
If you have ever watched a Wedge-tailed Eagle soar at heights up to 2,000metres, it is nearly motionless and stationary. This absolute lack of movement makes it naked to the eyes of its prey. This majestic bird may have a wing span over 2.5 metres and can weigh over 4kg and live up to 40 years. Wedge-tailed Eagles are indigenous to Australia; it is worth noting that other types of Eagles used to be predominant in Israel at one time.
Eagles are also the most attentive parents (Mothers and Fathers in the faith) of all the bird species and perhaps the greatest teachers of their young, and like doves, they will remain monogamous until death. God is likened to an eagle, He covers us and He shadows us (Psalm 36:7, 63:7, 91:1-4, 1st King 8:7), covers us (Psalm 91:1-4), hides us (Psalm 17:8) and is even under us (Psalm 36:7).
