"Partnering with the Angels."

This was presented as a message at our Praying Over our City Meeting
 
 
 
"Partnering with the Angels."   Highlights from
Chapter 3, “Secrets of the Seer” by Jamie Galloway

 Jesus is King.  Although he came as a servant, He is now King.  God the Father, the Son and Holy Spirit are one triune God.  To ask God to do all the work himself is like asking the King to mow the lawn.  A king has servants and God has a host of heavenly beings.   

When the Kingdom of God is expanding, then the dominion of His rule expands, and the enemies of the Kingdom weaken. 

Jesus named the enemies:  Sickness, broken hearts, poverty, oppression and death. 

Angels heed the voice of His Words.  God wants to speak through you, because you are His voice on the earth to activate the heavenly kingdom. 

Psalms 102:19-22 The LORD has prepared his throne in the heavens; and his kingdom rules over all. Bless the LORD, you his angels that excel in strength, that do his commandments, hearkening unto the voice of his word. Bless the LORD, all you His hosts, You who serve Him, doing His will. Bless the LORD, all you works of His, In all places of His dominion; Bless the LORD, O my soul!

Angels wait and listen for the voice.  God’s words come out of our mouth.  Angels agree with God’s words and take action.

Matthew 18:16 But if they will not listen, take one or two others along, so that 'every matter may be established by the testimony of two or three witnesses.' 

We agree with God’s word, and speak and the angels hear from the Holy Spirit and move to do God’s will. 

There may be times we have entertained angels and did not realize it.  Hebrews 13:2 Be kind to strangers, for some have entertained angels unawares.

Various persons in the Bible did not consider it was an angel visiting until later. Peter was released from prison by an angel.  The angels who visited Lot came in the form of men.  Abraham did not suspect the three (3) men who came to announce that he would have a son, were angels until later.   

Elijah could see into the spiritual atmosphere and was able to view the army of the Lord on horses ready to protect them from the enemy. 

Angel visits were through out the Old and New Testament.  Angels shut the lion’s mouths and preserved Daniel. 

Angels came to minister to Jesus after he had fasted for 40 days.  Jesus was tempted and battled to keep his will tuned to the Father’s will. 

Saul who became Paul, saw a bright light that blinded him.  He heard a voice telling him where to go and what to do.   

Angels often appear as lights carrying gifts.  James 1:17  Every good and perfect gift is from God. This kind of gift comes down from the Father who created the heavenly lights. These lights create shadows that move. But the Father does not change like these shadows. 

Heaven is full of light and glory.  Often when angels appear they seem as flashes of light from the corner of your eyes.  Be aware next time this happens to you, because angels are all around. 

Hebrews 1:3  The Son is the radiance of God’s glory and the exact representation of His nature, upholding all things by His powerful word. After He had provided purification for sins, He sat down at the right hand of the Majesty on high. 

Hebrews 1:13-14 Now to which of the angels has He ever said: Sit at My right hand until I make your enemies your footstool? Are they not all ministering spirits, sent forth to minister for them who shall be heirs of salvation? 

Angels create an atmosphere for the presence of God.  The more you seek Jesus and His presence; it will be revealed to you, there is more than just knowledge that angels exist to experiencing a life filled with angelic activity.   Angels love to worship God and they join in when you worship Jesus.   

Entertaining angels is not worshiping them, but partnering with them to minister.

Angels refuse worship and John was chastised when he bowed to an angel.  “Only worship God for I am a servant like you are,” the angel told him.

Angels perform the Word of God.  Psalms 103:20 Praise the LORD, you his angels, you mighty ones who do his bidding, who obey his word. 

We speak God’s Word and angels respond.  The angel told Daniel, I have come because of your words.  Daniel 10:12  Declaring the Word of God brings heaven to earth. 

Angels are on assignment to ensure that God’s Kingdom is growing and to bring assistance so that Jesus is Glorified.   

Every time a work of God is done on earth by His people, the Kingdom expands and the enemy is weakened. We obey and acting out of generosity, cast a demon off an oppressed soul, speak life; bring healing to a broken heart or body;  Give to the poor, raise a child in grace and wisdom, we help expand the Kingdom of God on earth. 

When angels become aware of the works of God being accomplished, they step into a place of action.  

In the last days angels will preach the gospel.   Record numbers in foreign lands are testifying they came to Jesus after a vision, a dream or a visitation by an angel. 

Psalms 34:7  The angel of the LORD encamps round about them that fear him, and delivers them. 

Angels hear us speak and are activated to do God’s will on earth.  Angels are in motion as they hear God’s words through your voice.
