Where Eagles Gather
Another look at where people will be taken.
34 I tell you, in that night there shall be two men in one bed; the one shall be taken, and the other shall be left.
35 Two women shall be grinding together; the one shall be taken, and the other left.
36 Two men shall be in the field; the one shall be taken, and the other left.
37 And they answered and said unto him, Where, Lord? And he said unto them, Wheresoever the body is, thither will the eagles be gathered together.
*** body = “soma” = either a dead or living body
Luke 17: 34-37
This happens at night (v34)
The body is either alive or dead when taken
The body is taken to where the eagles gather
Since eagles are said to never or seldom go in quest of carrion ( dead bodies), this may refer to a vulture which resembles an eagle.
Eagles gather in high rocky places.
2 possible meanings to this passage
1. A dead body is taken as carrion to the high rocky places where vultures gather.
2. An alive body, or maybe dead, is taken “on wings of eagles” to a high place of safety ( rapture or physical location)

New option 3
The vultures are not birds, but conquering people who take the “tares” away into captivity
24 And they shall fall by the edge of the sword, and shall be led away captive into all nations: and Jerusalem shall be trodden down of the Gentiles, until the times of the Gentiles be fulfilled. Luke 21:24
This is not necessarily restricted to Israel, as it follows the abomination and the fall of Jerusalem, and the command to flee to the mountains.
So those that do not flee will end up in captivity. This happened in 70 AD.
But history is due to repeat itself, as vultures are ready again to pounce on Israel, and anywhere else the Jews and believers live.
In this case, the eagles/ vultures gather back at their nests, locally, or in their home countries, taking their prey with them.
And the true Bride will escape into the wilderness.
Detention camps, USA
The scenario for other Western countries may be slightly different, but in America, it is possible that the tares in America will be taken away in captivity to labor camps in China or Russia, or to FEMA camps in the USA, operated by the UN.
If this is the case, then the tares in this country, and other countries, will suffer greatly, unless they repent.
There are actually 3 groups to be judged in the end times:
1. the tares, or false believers
2. the wheat, or true believers, or Bride of Christ
3. the wicked
The tares will be taken first in judgment and tribulation (Seals 1-6). The tribulation is caused by the wicked.
Then the wheat will be hidden in the wilderness during the time of trouble, and removed in rapture, which appears to be at the 6th seal.
Then the wicked will be destroyed during the trumpets and vials, during the Wrath of God.
Which group are you in?
Unless God can see you as the True Bride of Christ, you are going to suffer.
Unless you have clean hands and a pure heart, you will be removed and destroyed.
God is not mocked.
We cannot expect Him to be as lenient as the current godless culture is, which declares good evil, and evil good.
Repent of your sins while there is still time.
We have to call upon the Lord while He is still near.
Someday soon, He will withdraw His presence, as His wrath descends upon mankind.
Then there will be no more chances. You missed it.
I pray you will take this message seriously, and get your life in order with God, and accept the Savior, Jesus / YahShua/ that He sent to pay for your sins.
You cannot pay for your own.
Only the blood of the Lamb of God is acceptable for forgiveness.
Your works count as nothing without the salvation offered by Jesus.
