Working with Angels

Welcome To “Moment Of Supernatural”

Topic: Working with Angels

As Christian begins to use his or her members rightly, especially the tongue, he or she will find himself or herself in the perfect will of God, working with angels! This might seem difficult to believe or even too good to be true. However, this is the kind of life God created us to live. And this is the very purpose for which angels were created—to expedite God’s will for every Christian, to every Christian, and within every Christian! The writer of Hebrews explained the purpose of angels in our lives in this way:   Read Hebrews 1:14, 2:1-4

 Additionally, there are a number of truths revealed in the Book of Hebrews upon which we must concentrate. It is necessary to enter into a new mindset concerning the Kingdom of God, a mindset that understands these five truths concerning angelic beings. Your assignments on this earth are powerful and include working with angels. Here are the five truths that are essential for Christians to understand:

1. Briefing one: Angels are sent forth to minister for children of God.

2. Briefing two: We must earnestly grasp the truth that we have heard so that we do not drift away.

 3. Briefing three: What angels speak is steadfast. They speak on behalf of God. Therefore, what angels speak is God’s Word.

 4. Briefing four: Every transgression and disobedience will receive a just reward. Therefore, how shall we escape if we in any way neglect our own salvation?

 5. Briefing five: The Lord speaks, and then what He has spoken is confirmed by those who have heard it. God also confirms His Word with signs and wonders. To confirm His Word, God bears witness to what we have heard and spoken by confirming the Word with signs wonders and various miracles and gifts of the Holy Spirit according to God’s will.

It is essential that we as Christians fully comprehend the fact that the unseen realm around all of us is more real than the realm we presently see and experience. The Spirit of God is the Spirit of truth. According to what Jesus has clearly explained, He leads us into all truth. If a person does a word study on the word truth, one will find that “truth” is translated as the word “reality.” So it is correct to state that we have the Holy Spirit of reality coming into our life through the born-again experience. Then, we are filled to overflowing with God’s Spirit through the experience of the baptism in the Holy Spirit.

In Romans 8, God tells Christians how to yield to the Spirit and not to the flesh. This is essential so that we may walk in the Spirit and live our entire life through the leading of the Holy Spirit. By living a life filled with the Spirit of God, we will not fulfill the lust of the flesh. Once we, deep down in our hearts, become fully aware of this principle of living by His Spirit, we begin to know a new resource for victory. We then begin to realize that when we pray in the spirit, we pray out the truth. We know that the truth sets us free! And where the spirit of Lord is, there is freedom! He who has the Son is set free, free indeed.

 So we can consider briefing one, working with angels, to be the understanding that angels have been sent to minister for us. But they will only minister that which is the will of God for our lives and for the Kingdom of God. So anything we do in the flesh nature is contrary to the Spirit of God. Anything we do in the flesh is also contrary to the will of God.

 According to the apostle Paul, we are to yield to the Spirit as children of God: For those who live according to the flesh set their minds on the things of the flesh, but those who live according to the Spirit, the things of the Spirit Romans 8:5-14.

Through these powerful words of the apostle Paul by the Holy Spirit we can see that the Holy Spirit is essential to our Christian lives. The Holy Spirit makes it possible for us to be able to live according to His impulses and His mindset and not to the impulses of the flesh. So angels are sent to minister for us only as we walk in the Spirit. Unfortunately, and far too often, angels’ efforts are wasted on cleaning up the consequences of our disobedience. Angels then must work to keep us out of danger because of our lack of submission to the Holy Spirit. According to the writer of Hebrews, disobedience should not be tolerated. As we have already stated, there is a just reward for those who are disobedient or in rebellion to God’s ways. Angels are not actually primarily sent to repair situations brought about by our own disobedience or rebellion. The real purpose of angels being sent into our lives is to work with us to help us in doing the Kingdom of God’s work. Unfortunately, angels often have to waste time and effort trying to rectify situations in our lives that our rebellion creates. It is important to remember that we are children of God, and therefore we must realize that being led by the Spirit of God goes hand in hand with the fact that angels are sent to minister for us, the children of God, so that we are able to successfully complete our destiny for the Lord on this earth.

Briefing two has to do with staying focused and concentrated on the task at hand and not drifting from the assignment that God has entrusted to us. Angels are extremely focused and have certain orders they follow exactly, as specified by the Lord Jesus Christ. The Holy Spirit monitors the activities of angels to make certain that everything that we do coordinates fully with God’s intent. As long as a child of God does the same thing—allowing the Spirit of God to rule one’s inner man, carrying out God’s word exactly as he or she has been asked—everything goes well. But if a Christian starts to drift away from the initial plan, entering sin and disobedience, then he or she can grieve the Holy Spirit. When someone grieves the Holy Spirit, angels cannot help someone to fulfill God’s plan because the Christian is in disobedience and sin. Even the angel of the Lord in the Old Testament could be grieved. Angels had the right to judge the children of Israel when they moved in disobedience Exodus 23:20-24.

Clearly, the above Scripture passage reveals that God wants us to be obedient and walk with Him. The angel that was prepared to go with them was briefed on God’s perfect will. Although that angel was not always visible to the children of Israel, there was a hidden agenda—the angel was assigned to bring them into the land that God had prepared for them. We must always remember that though an angel is not always visible, God asks people to be aware of the angel, to obey his voice, and not to provoke him. Therefore, by this example we know that we are not to provoke angels. God even goes as far to say that we are not to disobey him because he will not pardon such transgressions for God’s name was in him. The good thing about the angel in this situation was that God clearly stated that if you obey the angel, the Lord says that He will be an enemy to our enemies as well as an adversary to our adversaries. The angel was going to go before them and cut off their enemies. The Lord has promised that these angels will help to overthrow our enemies and completely break down the secret pillars that uphold our enemies. It is obvious that working with angels is something that really happens for those who choose to walk in the spirit. We must not faint or hold back from God’s call and mission. We must be confident that angels are present to help us when we do what God has ordained us to do.

And now on to briefing three. This phase is focused on what angels speak. We need to be aware that angels speak for God. What angels speak is steadfast. Because they speak on behalf of God, their word is God’s Word, and therefore it must be taken very seriously. If a Christian wants to have an angel serve him or her, and if a Christian wants to be included in the plans and purposes of God with angels, a person must take the words of angels seriously. Angel visitation is not to be taken lightly. Their participation with a person in the furtherance of the gospel and the Kingdom of God on the earth is a very serious matter to God as well as to His angels. Also, there is always a possibility that the angels who are assigned to a person at this present time in the angelic realm may be the very angels under that person’s role in the next reign of Jesus Christ, in His millennial Kingdom. Therefore, it is important to develop a healthy relationship now with the angels who have come to help a person presently. It is crucial to respect their word and their actions, for to do so will be sowing into one’s future relationship with them. It is quite possible that those very angels will be ministering with the same person for all eternity.

 The fourth briefing of working with angels includes being responsible for heeding God’s commands, as well as the commands of the angels that we receive. The Bible clearly says in Hebrews 2:2-3 that “every transgression and disobedience received a just reward, how shall we escape if we neglect so great a salvation.” So it is quite clear that we are to pay attention to our own salvation, as well as to the harvest of others coming into the Kingdom. We must work with angels so that others may come in and enjoy salvation also. Angels work behind the scenes to minister for us. The ministry of angels includes bringing people into the Kingdom of God. They enjoy the salvation of human beings. Jesus talked about this in His ministry when He said, “Even so, I tell you, there is joy among and in the presence of the angels of God over one [especially] wicked person who repents (changes his mind for the better, heartily amending his ways, with abhorrence of his past sins) (Luke 15:10 AMPC). It is important to remember not only to hear the Word of God but to receive and obey the Word of God. Angels are involved in speaking and doing the Word of God. It is an awesome thing to be included as a part of this last-day move of God. Let us not be like those who heard and did not heed. According to Scripture, we must know how important it is to obey angels. In the Book of Acts, we are told, “You who received the Law as it was ordained and set in order and delivered by angels, and [yet] you did not obey it!” (Acts 7:53 AMPC).

The fifth and final briefing according to the Book of Hebrews is that the Lord speaks and then it is confirmed by those who have heard it. When the Lord begins to confirm His Word with actions, working with angels then becomes evident and exciting. In the Book of Acts, it was evident that the Lord was with the believers because signs and wonders followed them. In fact, leadership of that day took note that they had been with Jesus (see Acts 4:13). We can say that one of the true manifestations of believers who preached the gospel was that signs and wonders followed them, confirming what was preached. It was said of the believers in Jesus’ day, directly after His ascension, “So then, after the Lord had spoken to them, He was received up into heaven, and sat down at the right hand of God. And they went out and preached everywhere, the Lord working with them and confirming the word through the accompanying signs. Amen” (Mark 16:19-20). Behind the scenes, angels are part of many signs and wonders that occur when a person testifies of Jesus. It is of great importance to grasp these five briefings in order to understand and begin to experience the world of angels operating under the veil of secrecy. They are fellow servants who have been sent to minister for us. They do not want to get credit for anything they do. Their desire is that Jesus and the Most High God get the glory from whatever they do for God  Revelation 22:8-11.
