Ministry Of Angels.
“Are they not all ministering spirits, sent forth to minister for them who shall be heirs of salvation?” Hebrews 1:14 (KJV)
One of the benefits available to the believer by reason of the finished work on Calvary is the ministering spirits. The ministry of angels is one that is rarely talked about today, but beloved, there are angels on assignment on your behalf today.
The fact that the devil has bastardized this truth does not make it non-existent. Yes, many people do not understand the ministry of angels; some people even worship them, but beloved, they do exist. The Bible calls them ministering spirits sent to minister to us, the heirs of salvation.
The ministry of angels is still rampant today. I have heard cases of supernatural deliverances that you know only an angel could have completed. Some people have been rescued from very dangerous situations by an unknown person. By the time they turn around to enquire about the person, they discover that he has disappeared. Beloved, those are angels.
In Acts, we read the story of how an angel went to set Peter free. Peter had been bound and marked for execution, but while the saints prayed, God sent an angel who went into the prison, loosened his chains, and brought him out of the prison to the total amazement of even the disciples.
However, many angels are idle, not because there is nothing to do, but because we have refused to empower them. Angels will not respond to your whining and crying; they will not respond to your complaints either. Angels respond only to the word of God. Do you now see why all throughout the year I kept emphasizing the need to read the word, meditate on it, and declare it? When you declare the word, the angels are empowered to go and carry it out.
I don’t care how long your angels have been idle, you can engage them today by declaring the word of God.
4 So he became as much superior to the angels as the name he has inherited is superior to theirs.
The Son Superior to Angels!
5 For to which of the angels did God ever say,
“You are my Son;
today I have become your Father”[a]?
“I will be his Father,
and he will be my Son”[b]?
6 And again, when God brings his firstborn into the world, he says,
“Let all God’s angels worship him.”[c]
7 In speaking of the angels he says,
“He makes his angels spirits,
and his servants flames of fire.”[d]
8 But about the Son he says,
“Your throne, O God, will last for ever and ever;
a scepter of justice will be the scepter of your kingdom.
9 You have loved righteousness and hated wickedness;
therefore God, your God, has set you above your companions
by anointing you with the oil of joy.”[e]
10 He also says,
“In the beginning, Lord, you laid the foundations of the earth,
and the heavens are the work of your hands.
11 They will perish, but you remain;
they will all wear out like a garment.
12 You will roll them up like a robe;
like a garment they will be changed.
But you remain the same,
and your years will never end.”[f]
13 To which of the angels did God ever say,
“Sit at my right hand
until I make your enemies
a footstool for your feet”[g]?
14 Are not all angels ministering spirits sent to serve those who will inherit salvation?
12 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.
8 And the angel said unto him, Gird thyself, and bind on thy sandals. And so he did. And he saith unto him, Cast thy garment about thee, and follow me.
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.
