Understanding the Ministry of Angels Part 2

Understanding the ministry of Angels . Part 2.


The man in Christ is blessed with several supernatural abilities. Part of this ability is that he has angels as mighty spirit beings at his service. We have seen so far certain facts about angels in the part one of this series. Kindly click here  to read part one before reading this part 2. We have seen that angels are spirit beings created to serve man. They can only appear as a man physically except in a vision where they can take different forms . Angels are public servants that minister for God’s man .

Hebrews 1

 14  Are they not all ministering spirits, sent forth to minister for them who shall be heirs of salvation?

Angels are serving spirits created to serve man who is made to inherit salvation. The question is how do they serve man and how can we maximize the ministry of Angels ?

Psalm 103

 20  Bless the LORD, ye his angels, that excel in strength, that do his commandments, hearkening unto the voice of his word.

Angels excel in strength in harkening to the voice of God . They harken to the voice of God’s word in man’s mouth. This means that when we rely on God and speak, we are setting angels on course . WORDS set angels on course. They trigger the activities of angels . Let’s look at particular assignments that angels serve man in and how to better enjoy their Service. Notice that angels serve man doesn’t mean that they are our slaves . They are made to render particular services that we cannot do for our selves . They are privilege to serve those in Zion(in Christ).

·       Angels can convey a message. Angels can covey a message from God .They can deputize for God in conveying divine message. All through  the Bible, we see angels communicating messages to people. In Exodus 3, Moses got the message from God to deliver the Israelites through an angel. Abraham had a lot of dealings with angels in getting messages from God . In Genesis 18, three angels met Abraham as men and delivered a message about the birth of Isaac and also about the destruction of Sodom and Gomorrah. An angel of the lord gave Philip direction for preaching in Acts 8:26  And the angel of the Lord spake unto Philip, saying, Arise, and go toward the south unto the way that goeth down from Jerusalem unto Gaza, which is desert.

Notice, angels can bring a message but they cannot explain the gospel. They can only instruct you to preach as they told Peter to do in Acts 5:19-20. It should not be strange that we get messages from angels . Angels brought the good tidings to Joseph about Mary being pregnant of Jesus. Matthew 1 :19-21.

We must note that any message from an angel must not be contrary to gospel of Jesus  (Genesis to Malachi as explained in the epistles). Paul warned In Galatians against any message against the gospel from an angel or man in Galatians.

Galatians 1

 8  But though we, or an angel from heaven, preach any other gospel unto you than that which we have preached unto you, let him be accursed.

 9  As we said before, so say I now again, If any man preach any other gospel unto you than that ye have received, let him be accursed.

This means that we can not and should never take from an angel any divine message or instruction contrary to the gospel of Jesus. Many  religions have been birthed out of people hearing the voice of who they call an angel when the voice is contrary to what we see in Christ.

·       Angels can bring direction and can help get what is missing. In the scriptures, we see angels bring direction to people. When Jesus was born, an angel brought messages to Joseph to take him for Herod seek his life .

 Mathew 2 :13  And when they were departed, behold, the angel of the Lord appeareth to Joseph in a dream, saying, Arise, and take the young child and his mother, and flee into Egypt, and be thou there until I bring thee word: for Herod will seek the young child to destroy him.

An angel of God brought a message of direction to Joseph as it concerns where to take Jesus to flee to . This means that you can know what to do amidst issues through an angel.  The angel informed Joseph to take the baby back in verse 19 of the same Matthew 2. In Acts 10, Cornelius through an angel got the direction to send for Peter for his salvation ( Acts 10:1-6).  Abraham’s servant that was sent to look for wife for Isaac gave a testimony of how the angel of Lord helped him. In fact the confidence that Abraham had was that the angel of the Lord will prosper his journey. Genesis 24:  38  But thou shalt go unto my father's house, and to my kindred, and take a wife unto my son.   39  And I said unto my master, Peradventure the woman will not follow me. 40  And he said unto me, The LORD, before whom I walk, will send his angel with thee, and prosper thy way; and thou shalt take a wife for my son of my kindred, and of my father's house:

Notice Abraham had complete trust on God and his angels in sending his servant. We saw that Abraham’s desire was met. This shows us it was through angelic guidance that the servant knew to talk to Rebekah. Even for Rebekah to be at the well the time she came was angelic guidance. This means that angels can guide us to the right places and the right people to get our needs met. This happens when we trust the Lord solely and speak then step out in faith. Abraham’s servant believed his master and stepped out to look for a wife for Isaac.

·       Angels delivers. Angels delivers. They are mighty beings that excel in strength to protect and deliver.

Psalm 34: 7  The angel of the LORD encampeth round about them that fear him, and delivereth them.  

It is the work of angels to encamp and form an edge around man . Remember they are created to serve man . Angels as mighty spirits can deliver . They excel and transcend over matter hence they can intervene for man. The Bible is full of stories of how the angels delivered men in seemingly dead situations. Jacob made a striking statement when blessing his children.

Genesis 48

 16  The Angel which redeemed me from all evil, bless the lads; and let my name be named on them, and the name of my fathers Abraham and Isaac; and let them grow into a multitude in the midst of the earth.

Notice Jacob knew just as he learnt from his fathers Abraham and Jacob that the angel of the Lord delivered Him from all evils. He had confidence in this angel. Just like Abraham could confidently send the servant to go look for a wife for Isaac knowing the angel of the Lord will guide him . So angels delivers and we must be conscious of them in our daily activities.  Let’s not forget in part one we saw that angels excel in strength. One angel can do what we take five hundred men to do in seconds . This is because of their strength. In 2 Kings 19:35, an angel killed 185,000 Assyrian men in delivering the Children of Israel. This shows us how God can deliver through his mighty angels. In the book of Acts , we saw God delivering believers through the ministry of Angels. Let’s look at a typical example in Acts 12.

Acts 12

 1  Now about that time Herod the king stretched forth his hands to vex certain of the church. 

 2  And he killed James the brother of John with the sword.

 3  And because he saw it pleased the Jews, he proceeded further to take Peter also. (Then were the days of unleavened bread.)

 4  And when he had apprehended him, he put him in prison, and delivered him to four quaternions of soldiers to keep him; intending after Easter to bring him forth to the people.  

 5  Peter therefore was kept in prison: but prayer was made without ceasing of the church unto God for him. 

 6  And when Herod would have brought him forth, the same night Peter was sleeping between two soldiers, bound with two chains: and the keepers before the door kept the prison.

 7  And, behold, the angel of the Lord came upon him, and a light shined in the prison: and he smote Peter on the side, and raised him up, saying, Arise up quickly. And his chains fell off from his hands.

Notice Peter was in a deadly situation. James has just been killed by Herod . He proceeded to take Peter . The church intervened in Prayers . PRAYERS WAS MADE WITHOUT CEASING. This shows us that THE STEADFAST PRAYER OF BELIEVERS CAN RELEASE THE ACTIVITIES OF ANGELS. When we pray relying solely on God , we  release the activities of angels. Knowing fully well that angels are available to deliver us, we must always learn to rely on God for deliverance and to pray . Prayer always releases supernatural effects through the activities of angels . When the angel of the Lord touched Peter, the chains fell off. This shows us how powerful angels can be . In fact , the gates to the city and the prison gate opened to them of their own accord. See verse 9 to 11.

9  And he went out, and followed him; and wist not that it was true which was done by the angel; but thought he saw a vision.

 10  When they were past the first and the second ward, they came unto the iron gate that leadeth unto the city; which opened to them of his own accord: and they went out, and passed on through one street; and forthwith the angel departed from him.

 11  And when Peter was come to himself, he said, Now I know of a surety, that the Lord hath sent his angel, and hath delivered me out of the hand of Herod, and from all the expectation of the people of the Jews.

This shows us how mightily God can deliver us through his angels . Peter told us in verse 11 that the Lord delivered him from Herod . How was his deliverance wrought? Through PRAYERS. When there is a believer to pray and say NO to ugly circumstances, there is a God that can surely intervene through his mighty angels. Let’s look at Psalm 91.

Psalms 91

 1  He that dwelleth in the secret place of the most High shall abide under the shadow of the Almighty.

2  I will say of the LORD, He is my refuge and my fortress: my God; in him will I trust.

3  Surely he shall deliver thee from the snare of the fowler, and from the noisome pestilence.

4  He shall cover thee with his feathers, and under his wings shalt thou trust: his truth shall be thy shield and buckler.

5  Thou shalt not be afraid for the terror by night; nor for the arrow that flieth by day;

6  Nor for the pestilence that walketh in darkness; nor for the destruction that wasteth at noonday.

7  A thousand shall fall at thy side, and ten thousand at thy right hand; but it shall not come nigh thee.

 8  Only with thine eyes shalt thou behold and see the reward of the wicked.

 9  Because thou hast made the LORD, which is my refuge, even the most High, thy habitation;

 10  There shall no evil befall thee, neither shall any plague come nigh thy dwelling.

 11  For he shall give his angels charge over thee, to keep thee in all thy ways.

 12  They shall bear thee up in their hands, lest thou dash thy foot against a stone.

 13  Thou shalt tread upon the lion and adder: the young lion and the dragon shalt thou trample under feet.

 14  Because he hath set his love upon me, therefore will I deliver him: I will set him on high, because he hath known my name.

 15  He shall call upon me, and I will answer him: I will be with him in trouble; I will deliver him, and honour him.

 16  With long life will I satisfy him, and shew him my salvation.

The Secret place of the most high is where we are in Christ. Hence, we are in the covering of God through His angels. Verse 2 tells us how to activate his covering and the activities of angels. I WILL SAY OF THE LORD. In HIM WILL I TRUST. So we know that angels are words activated. They harken to words . So to see the ACTIVITIES of angels, we must learn to SPEAK relying on God.  This shows us the importance of words. I will SAY of the Lord He is my refuge and my fortress . You make the Lord your refuge by what you say and how you rely on God for your safety.

Verse 3, we see that SURELY God shall deliver me from traps of the wicked one and wasteful diseases. God delivers . Yes He truly does through His angels.

FEAR INCAPACITATES ANGELS AND THEIR ACTIVITIES. Hence, we are told that we shall not be afraid of the terror by night. You notice WHENEVER angels appear , they would always say, fear NOT. This shows us how fear can affect their work . Angels work best when we have faith in God and declare boldly what we want to see. Angels are powerful hence can suspend the laws of nature.  The angels of God are given charge over us to keep us in all our ways . If you cannot dash your foot against a stone because of angelic guidance how much more your head ? Your safety is guaranteed. Safety is of the Lord. All you need do is to trust the Lord and Speak . Yes SPEAK. Angels harken to our words . We must learn to command what we want to see. We don't necessarily need to command angels. All we need do is trust in the Lord and Speak . They are always available to serve us . Your own is not to think how it will happen. ONLY TRUST AND TALK. In the midst of danger ? Only command what you want to see . We have angels at our service. They are SWIFT to DELIVER us from danger and to ARM us from danger . Don't allow your life to be in the hands of men and your environment when you can be delivered by God through his angels . Imagine a gun pointed at you. Will you just die like that when you can receive delivererance by trusting and speaking? Angels can take the hurt of the bullet . Angels can bear can loss . Shedrack , Mishack and Abednego trusted the Lord and fieary fire turn to normal light. They were not hurt in Daniels 3. This was through an angel called the fourth man. I believe God. Don't talk like someone who has no God .

We have God . We can put out life on him not our environment. GOD DELIVERS. It is not automatic. It must be recieved. 

Notice verse 14 of Psalm 91 says BECAUSE, he has made the Lord His refuge wherefore will I deliver him. The question is how did he make the Lord his refuge?

We see that in verse two. He SAYS the Lord is my refuge and fortress. He trusts in the Lord .

Enjoying the ministry of Angels is not luck. We can be deliberate about it by consistently acting in faith and speaking boldly. No man has ever trusted God and was not delivered. The three Hebrew men in Daniel trusted God and they were delivered by the fourth man which was an angel.   They had unequivocal trust in the Lord.

This is how to enjoy the ministry of Angels . You must be conscious of them. You must learn to trust the Lord. You must also be given to so much prayers. We know one way to trust the Lord is to pray. No man has ever trusted the Lord without praying. Prayer is how we show dependence on God. It is how we release words of power that angels can work with.

All these  make the difference in believers who enjoy more supernatural help from angels .
