I have recently been concerned about the great conflicts which are building in the United States between the three branches. It seems that the legislative branch is dieing in its sleep while the judicial and executive branches jockey for more power.
Obama’s recent statements about going it alone and circumventing congress have only served to increase my concerns.
In the book of 2Esdras we read of a vision in which Esdras sees a vision of a three headed eagle coming up from the sea (2Esdras chapters 11 and 12):
1: Then saw I a dream, and, behold, there came up from the sea an eagle, which had twelve feathered wings, and three heads.
2: And I saw, and, behold, she spread her wings over all the earth, and all the winds of the air blew on her, and were gathered together.
We are told that this three headed eagle is another representation of the fourth beast of Daniel seven:
10: And he said unto me, This is the interpretation of the vision:
11: The eagle, whom you saw come up from the sea, is the kingdom which was seen in the vision of your brother Daniel.
12: But it was not expounded unto him, therefore now I declare it unto you.
13: Behold, the days will come, that there shall rise up a kingdom upon earth, and it shall be feared above all the kingdoms that were before it.
Haym Solomon an American Jew who was the primary financier of the American Revolution believed that the Eagle symbol of the USA indicated that the USA was the eagles wings plucked from the lion in Daniel seven (He saw this as the USA removed from Great Britain) and that this eagle with three branches of government was to become the three headed eagle of 2nd Esdras.
In this vision the three heads of the eagle come into conflict with one another. One of the heads dies in its sleep, another head is slain by the other, and the final head remains until it is slain. We are also told that a Lion (which Esdras is told represents Messiah) speaks to the eagle, but the eagle will not listen to him. Then the eagle is no more.
Of course there are other possible interpretations of this vision (I gave another some years ago: http://nazarenespace.com/profiles/blogs/the-three-headed-eagle-of-2nd )
