You may get confused by the many messages on the Supernatural that you listen to but let me tell you this:
1. Seeing an angel is not a measure of spiritual growth
There’s no point TALKING WITH AN ANGEL either physically or through a vision. So, when I tell you that seeing ANGELS or seeing Jesus is not a measure of spiritual growth, take it from me
I have seen Lord Jesus Christ before in a vision speaking to me and it took a while. I know a young man who was desperate for these things and he ended up being Possessed Seeing angels is not seekable through prayers or fasting except if you want to hurt yourself
You may encounter a demon in the process
There’s absolutely nothing like praying to the point where you see angels
2. Seeing angels is for the hard of hearing
Take this first fact from me Seeing or interacting with an angel is not necessary or important
This is it,
Those who are hard of hearing, are deaf people that could hear faintly
Like, he isn’t even a believer
If God knew that he wanted to use a man but this man is out of touch with him
Those who are hard of hearing, are deaf people that could hear faintly
When Ayo Babalola had his first encounter with a voice calling him, he wasn’t even a Christian but an idol worshiper
God may do something extra-ordinary just to get his attention
When Paul had the encounter with God, he was a murderer
So, if you see a Christian boast of seeing an angel talk to him, let him know that the experience was actually for natural men and not necessarily for spiritual men
If you want your horse to talk then you may have to desire to behave like Balaam
Even Balaam horse talked
I hope I am not dashing somebody’s hope
3. Talking with angels is predestination and assignment based
But some men have been chosen before they were born for an assignment and that assignment requires seeing and talking with angels
Some spiritual men talk to angels
Everything I have said about angels so far applies to seeing Lord Jesus as well
If you don’t have such an assignment, you don’t need much experience
Is somebody angry to hear that
You may want to ask, BUT WHY?
4. Talking with angels is purely a result of God’s prerogative
Man has almost no role to play in this.
Have I dismissed the works of angels among men? No.
That being said
Have I said people can’t see angels? No.
I just need you to approach with the right mindset
In fact, after this teaching, you’ll have your first angelic encounter
WHY TALKING with an angel is purely God’s prerogative
God doesn’t want a New Testament to be led by visions of angels all the time1. God doesn’t want you to be led by your five senses but by His spiritHe was carried by the Spirit into a desert
Look at Philip-
Then he saw an Angel
He was carried by the Spirit into a desert
And that way, he won a soul and the African continent
Then the Holy Spirit led him on what to say and how to say it
God always want us to anchor on the Holy Spirit
And not to be carried away by other things
Those who are led by the Spirit are the sons of God
The Scripture says-
Rom 8:14 For as many as are led by the Spirit of God, they are the sons of God
They are not boys or girls or children but SONS
meaning, the mature son that is fit to be heir
At the time Babalola saw an Angel, he was even less of a babe
He didn’t say as many are led by angels2. God wants us to follow him by faith and not by sight
If you want sight, feelings, touch, go to doubting Thomas
John 20:29 Jesus saith unto him, Thomas, because thou hast seen me, thou hast believed: blessed are they that have not seen, and yet have believed.
EXISTENCE OF ANGELS
Now, let’s talk about angels
They are created beings by God that operates both in heaven and on the earth1. God wants you to know that angles are real
These beings relate with us, MAN!
They are God’s messengers that run to deliver his message and follow up on his wills
We are meant to relate and interact as they interact with us but not always in the regular assumption of talking to them
God wants you to believe that they exist
He wants you to acknowledge their involvement in the affairs of menDaniel knew angels were with him in the den
He knew an angel had covered the mouth of the lions all night
He didn’t see but he knew
And he never held a conversation with them directly or indirectly
Dan 6:22 My God hath sent his angel, and hath shut the lions’ mouths,
PURPOSES OF ANGELS AMONG US
Understanding what angels do or are meant to do is the pathway to knowing how to relate and interact with them
Do you know that angels are in charge of money on earth?
There are no banks or cbn in heaven but angles can make money flow in your direction if you understand how
But for today, let’s examine the PROTECTION ROLE OF ANGELS
We’ll see how to harness that on Thursday
Heb 1:14 Are they, not all ministering spirits, sent forth to minister for them who shall be heirs of salvation?To understand the protection role of an angel, the first thing you must acknowledge is that every believer had at least 3 angles guarding him
That time I was dead sick
I have seen my guardian angel once
I thought I would die
Why did God show me?
So, I saw this huge angel by me
I hope we will have time. If I teach you a bit about visions, you can see angels too
As a sign to assure me that I won’t die!
Meanwhile, I didn’t long or desire to see the angel.It was God’s prerogative
I wasn’t interacting or talking to them.I hope you get the difference
I saw that angel twice.
After that time, I had been sick a couple of times. I didn’t see the angel but I knew that I won’t die
I don’t have to.
I knew I can’t die.
My knowledge had increased beyond that
God had no reason to show give me a sign.
Meanwhile, not seeing the angel at other times doesn’t means he is not there
You may want to ask, what if my knowledge had grown the first time, will I still see the angel
I may likely not see it
So have angels watching over you as you read this….you may not see it but you must understand and believe it
How do I know that I truly have an angel?
Mat 18:10 Take heed that ye despise not one of these little ones; for I say unto you, That in heaven their angels do always behold the face of my Father which is in heaven
You were once a child, right?
Here, Jesus said every little child has an angel standing before God on their behalf in heaven
So, this angel has a job, to watch over you
Does it mean that when you grow up, you lose your angel?
Of course not
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.
You hear about the earthquake happening in some places, but a Sadozite living abroad was miraculously spared
Your angels will even ensure that you don’t hurt as much as your foot
Even your foot
Not your head this time o
You know I told you that you have a minimum of three angels watching over you
There is angel goodness and mercy Psa 23:6 Surely goodness and mercy shall follow me all the days of my life: and I will dwell in the house of the LORD forever.
You also have ANGEL GOODNESS & MERCY
How do you annex this security work of these angels into your life
believe as I have taught you2. Remind yourself of the fact that you are surrounded by these angels
3. Call on them in times of need or fear
If you are in a troubled situation or you ran into a riot
Remind yourself that you have angels
Praise God for their existence around you
Decree that they keep you safe
Let me give a practical
You must never pray in fears
You’re on a bus travelling and you have this fear of an accident
You just pray like this:
Father, I thank you because you’re my security
Thank you for your covenant of peace and safety
Thank you for mounting a guard around me
I rebuke the spirit of fear and death on my way on this journey
Thank you for giving me a guardian angel, angel goodness and angel mercy to watch over me to ensure that my foot is not hurt
That’s the simple way to say it and it is powerful
I command my angels who are ministering spirit to watch over me to keep me safe, this bus and everyone in it in Jesus’ Name. Amen
You may need to speak your prayers aloud even if it’s just by a whisper
Do this for everything and anything that needs protection, it works
Especially in the areas where you rebuked and decreed
In the next study, we will look at angels and financial provisions
The light shines in darkness and darkness comprehends it not
