The Role of Angels in Spiritual Warfare


Hi Everybody!

So today I feel like the Lord is pressing me to talk about something that isn’t really talked about let alone thought about because Angels are always left in hindsight when they are an important and intergral part of our Christian walk, especially in regards to SPIRITUAL WARFARE

Every person whether they are Christian or not are assigned an angel(s) from the day they were born.  When we pray, angels are released; when we fast, angels are released and when we praise, angels are released. Why am I saying this??? Spiritual Warfare is always present in our lives whether we are aware of this or not. There is a constant battle in the Spiritual Realm for every persons life regardless of whether you believe what I am saying or not. I think that if everybody had spiritual eyes and could see the spiritual realm in its fullness they would be shocked to see what is surrounding them at the moment.

If you look at the US Presidential elections that just passed this year….the fact that the elections swayed too and fro in a 50/50 almost tied stale-mate…you can tell that the prayers of the American Christians was causing a type of pressure in the Spiritual realm  that left people wondering what would be the final outcome. Although Obama won the election, what I want Americans to understand is that “Christians..your prayers were definitely being heard in Heaven at this time!”. Even in the face of a hurricane…there was Spiritual Warfare present throughout the season of the elections. Your petitions throughout the election period released a multitude of angelic hosts to fight forces of darkness  (in particular the principalities and powers and the spiritual wickedness in the high places Ephesians 6:12) hovering over the land in an effective battle…

1 Peter 4:8
And above all things have fervent love for one another, for “love will cover a multitude of sins.”

2 Chronicles 7:14
if My people who are called by My name will humble themselves, and pray and seek My face, and turn from their wicked ways, then I will hear from heaven, and will forgive their sin and heal their land.

In a way it didn’t matter who won…What American Christians need to know right now is that Obama and Romney don’t hold the future of America in their Hands…the Church of Jesus Christ holds the future of America in their hands by their fasting and praying and also in their Praise and Worship.

My Message to you is “Do not stop doing these things until you see change!”

James 5:16
Confess your trespasses to one another, and pray for one another, that you may be healed. The effective, fervent prayer of a righteous man avails much.

I’ve read many blogs that have been stipulating that God is going to judge America because of the level of unrighteousness present in the land. They are not really far from the truth in a way; however, what I would like to say is that what I’m hearing in the Spirit is that Judgment can be halted by what Christians do right now during this season as we reach the close of the Year of Divine Government 2012.

I think it’s time to step your game up Christians of America. I know I’m not American…but you have so much power within you right now that this isn’t the time to give up….

Apply pressure in the Spiritual realm with your Praise to God. I believe that at the present time…though the state of affairs is that America is still recovering from the tragedy of Hurricane Sandy, don’t stop applying pressure in the Spiritual realm right now. Something is happening….I am sensing that there is a great shaking in the spiritual realm over the land and what is interesting is that the voices of the Lord’s people became more pronounced during this election season than any other one in previous years which was something the world did not anticipate nor expect to see. This year is indeed very different and very unique. It would have been rather fearful to think of what the future holds for America had the Christians remained silent in the face of this election. 

Angels are released everytime a believer prays. I believe that in the present time…no matter where you are…you can even pray by proxy…keep praying to see change manifest in your nation. The worst thing is to give up too early when the fight has just begun.  When you understand the roles of Angels…you will prepare yourself effectively in your prayer life especially for the new year in preparation for the 21 DAY DANIEL FAST  that some churches will be participating in the New Year.

It is so important to understand the role of Angels so here is my list to help you understand what they do for you: 

Angels Protect you

Psalm 91:11 For He shall give His angels charge over you, To keep you in all your ways.

Angels send messages of Warning

Genesis 19:15  When the morning dawned, the angels urged Lot to hurry, saying, “Arise, take your wife and your two daughters who are here, lest you be consumed in the punishment of the city.”

Angels can be seen in your dreams

Genesis 28:12 Then he dreamed, and behold, a ladder was set up on the earth, and its top reached to heaven; and there the angels of God were ascending and descending on it.

Angels heed to the voice of God

Psalm 103:20 Bless the LORD, you His angels, Who excel in strength, who do His word, Heeding the voice of His word.

Angels are Heavenly Ministers  –

Psalm 104:4 Who makes His angels spirits, His ministers a flame of fire.

Matthew 4:11
Then the devil left Him, and behold, angels came and ministered to Him.

Angels are Worshipers and Praise God

Psalm 148:2 Praise Him, all His angels; Praise Him, all His hosts!

Hebrews 1:6
But when He again brings the firstborn into the world, He says: “Let all the angels of God worship Him.”

Revelation 7:11
All the angels stood around the throne and the elders and the four living creatures, and fell on their faces before the throne and worshiped God,

Angels are Reapers of the End time Harvest

Matthew 13:39 The enemy who sowed them is the devil, the harvest is the end of the age, and the reapers are the angels.

Angels administer God’s Judgement

Matthew 13:41 The Son of Man will send out His angels, and they will gather out of His kingdom all things that offend, and those who practice lawlessness,

Matthew 13:49
So it will be at the end of the age. The angels will come forth, separate the wicked from among the just,

Angels are assigned to every person when they are born (including unbelievers)

Matthew 18:10
[ The Parable of the Lost Sheep ] “Take heed that you do not despise one of these little ones, for I say to you that in heaven their angels always see the face of My Father who is in heaven.

The Devil and his evil angels are already sentenced to hell

Matthew 25:41 “Then He will also say to those on the left hand, ‘Depart from Me, you cursed, into the everlasting fire prepared for the devil and his angels:

There is an army of Angels in Heaven that can be released at the command of Jesus when you pray 

Matthew 26:53
Or do you think that I cannot now pray to My Father, and He will provide Me with more than twelve legions of angels?

Hebrews 12:22
But you have come to Mount Zion and to the city of the living God, the heavenly Jerusalem, to an innumerable company of angels,

Angels are present with you when you Fast

Mark 1:13 And He was there in the wilderness forty days, tempted by Satan, and was with the wild beasts; and the angels ministered to Him.

Angels are present when you confess your sins and your faith to GOD –

 Luke 12:8
[ Confess Christ Before Men ] “Also I say to you, whoever confesses Me before men, him the Son of Man also will confess before the angels of God.

Angels rejoice for every soul that is saved

Luke 15:10
Likewise, I say to you, there is joy in the presence of the angels of God over one sinner who repents.”

Angels can look like people –

Hebrews 13:2
Do not forget to entertain strangers, for by so doing some have unwittingly entertained angels.

Angels release the Prophetic Word

Daniel 10:19-20

19 And he said, “O man greatly beloved, fear not! Peace be to you; be strong, yes, be strong!”So when he spoke to me I was strengthened, and said, “Let my lord speak, for you have strengthened me.”20 Then he said, “Do you know why I have come to you? And now I must return to fight with the prince of Persia; and when I have gone forth, indeed the prince of Greece will come.

Although this list is no way an exhaustive list of what they can do…I just want people to understand that as Christians…when we go through Spiritual Warfare…it is important that you understand the role that angels play in your life.

I have seen some of them in my life…and sometimes I wish people could see them too, but the most important thing is to understand that they are with you always. Christians are powerful when they believe. Every prayer releases millions to billions of angels each time. If 1 person can put 1000 to flight and if 2 people can put tens of thousands to flight…what say you with a congregation of 100 people????

Deuteronomy 32:30
How could one man chase a thousand, or two put ten thousand to flight, unless their Rock had sold them, unless the LORD had given them up?

So today, apply pressure in the Spiritual Realm in your Fasting, in your Prayer life and in your Praise and Worship. Angels are waiting for Christians to be active in their Faith, AMEN!

The Latter Rain will be Greater – Receiving God’s Answer


Day 5 of 21 Day Daniel Fast –  Today’s meditation is from the Book of Joel about acknowledging when your desert/wilderness season is over and when you must prepare to receive the Latter rain of Blessings in your life from the Lord. For me last year was amazing but I did have a few desert situations where I was wondering “when will I receive a greater blessing?” because I believe everybody has a PROSPERITY PORTION according to the Jeremiah 29:11 Promise from the Lord.

When Reading the book of Joel, I received a great encouragement in that when the people Fasted and prayed in their desert season, God opened up the heavens for DIVINE rain of Blessings on the Land that had suffered a severe drought. In this Daniel Fast, although we are fighting against Principalities and Powers and Spiritual Wickedness in the High places, let us not forget why we are fighting in the Spirit in the First place. We want the ENEMIES OF GOD TO PAY BACK EVERYTHING THEY STOLE FROM US WITH INTEREST!!!!

I believe that there will be a rise of Calebs and Joshuas in this year of DIVINE GOVERNMENT who will lead people into their promised land. As we pray and Fast, we must seek God’s face to increase our spiritual discernment to point out the Calebs and Joshuas in our lives. No more of this 40 year desert experience where the people of Israel wondered about like lost lambs with no home based on the discouragement of the report of the 10 spies who were sent out to the land of Canaan to spy over the land that the Lord had promised to them in your season (Numbers 13:27-31). Just because there were squatters (Numbers 13:27-29) in the land doesn’t mean that the land belonged to them. Fight for what is yours and be like Caleb and Joshua who kicked them out of the Land. Ignore the Naysayers during your Fast for breakthrough and be like Caleb and Joshua who were able to enter into the promised land because of their level of Faith (Numbers 14:24; Numbers 14:30; Numbers 26:65; Numbers 32:12).

You will receive your promise when you develop a fighting spirit to take back what the enemy has tried to steal from you, be it your home, your health, your finances, your children, your mind, your peace, whatever it is, Fight in the Spirit to obtain Victory in the Natural. You don’t have to accept the current status quo, your current circumstances and your current situations if they don’t represent the Jeremiah 29:11 promise. When you fight, don’t use your own might and power, for you will lose if you do. Seek the guidance of the Holy Spirit, for what you war in the Spirit can only be fought by the Holy Spirit, so Fight with God on your side. Remember, you can only win with God on your side so always seek strategies of engaging a spiritual battle with Divine wisdom that comes from the Almighty God.

Zechariah 4:6
So he answered and said to me: “ This is the word of the LORD to Zerubbabel: ‘ Not by might nor by power, but by My Spirit,’ Says the LORD of hosts

I believe that there will be people who will rise up and take possession of their promises (which are your blessings of prosperity) that the Lord has prepared for them because they believe in the Word of the Lord over their circumstances. Whose report will you believe? I will believe in the Report of the Lord. Don’t look at the desert that you are in right now and think of the Latter RAIN that God wants to pour into your life.

Mark 9:23
Jesus said to him, “If you can believe, all things are possible to him who believes.”

Believe for: The Rain of Blessings, the Latter Rain, the Overflow and the Gifts of the HOLY SPIRIT. I’m looking out for my Rainy season and Praying for the Overflow. What are you Praying for??? Do you want the latter Rain??? Ask yourselves these questions in your meditations.

So in reading the book of Numbers and the book of Joel, I thought to myself, I want to be like a Caleb and Joshua who has a heart to pursue and believe for the blessings that belong to me, a Child of God. We have to learn to walk by faith and not by sight (2 Corinthians 5:7).  Don’t you want to receive what God already has prepared for you???? I know for sure I do, but that means I have to increase my level of FAITH in order to obtain what God has promised to me. I have no idea how I will receive my promises or by what means, but I’m seeking God’s face for His answer.

We must seek to increase our level of Faith in order to receive according to the measure of that Faith when the Lord prepares us for the great Outpouring for the overflow. Are you ready to increase your level of Faith during your Spiritual Warfare Fast? The Promises of God need those with a Caleb type spirit and level of Faith who will fight for the Promise instead of those that listened to the Naysayers who were intimidated by the squatters robbing them from Gods promise in their lives. Are you willing to fight in your prayer life for your promises? I want to and I will start by ignoring the negative and will call forth things that are not as though they were (Romans 4:17).

Maintain the FOCUS and fix your eyes on Jesus Christ, Holy God, Our Counselor, Prince of Peace and the Author and Finisher of your Faith (Hebrews 12:2).

Read Joel 2:12-32 and focus on the highlighted verses.

Joel 2:12-32 (New International Version)

Rend Your Heart

12 “Even now,” declares the LORD, “return to me with all your heart, with fasting and weeping and mourning.” 13 Rend your heart and not your garments.Return to the LORD your God, for he is gracious and compassionate,slow to anger and abounding in love, and he relents from sending calamity. 14 Who knows? He may turn and have pity and leave behind a blessing– grain offerings and drink offerings for the LORD your God. 15 Blow the trumpet in Zion, declare a holy fast, call a sacred assembly. 16 Gather the people, consecrate the assembly; bring together the elders, gather the children, those nursing at the breast. Let the bridegroom leave his room and the bride her chamber. 17 Let the priests, who minister before the LORD, weep between the temple porch and the altar. Let them say, “Spare your people, O LORD. Do not make your inheritance an object of scorn, a byword among the nations. Why should they say among the peoples, ‘Where is their God?’ “

The LORD’s Answer

18 Then the LORD will be jealous for his land and take pity on his people. 19 The LORD will reply to them: “I am sending you grain, new wine and oil, enough to satisfy you fully; never again will I make you an object of scorn to the nations. 20 “I will drive the northern army far from you, pushing it into a parched and barren land, with its front columns going into the eastern sea and those in the rear into the western sea. And its stench will go up; its smell will rise.” Surely he has done great things. 21 Be not afraid, O land; be glad and rejoice. Surely the LORD has done great things. 22 Be not afraid, O wild animals, for the open pastures are becoming green. The trees are bearing their fruit; the fig tree and the vine yield their riches. 23 Be glad, O people of Zion, rejoice in the LORD your God, for he has given you the autumn rains in righteousness. He sends you abundant showers,both autumn and spring rains,as before. 24 The threshing floors will be filled with grain; the vats will overflow with new wine and oil. 25 “I will repay you for the years the locusts have eaten– the great locust and the young locust, the other locusts and the locust swarm– my great army that I sent among you. 26 You will have plenty to eat, until you are full, and you will praise the name of the LORD your God, who has worked wonders for you; never again will my people be shamed. 27 Then you will know that I am in Israel, that I am the LORD your God, and that there is no other; never again will my people be shamed.

The Day of the LORD

28 “And afterward, I will pour out my Spirit on all people. Your sons and daughters will prophesy, your old men will dream dreams, your young men will see visions. 29 Even on my servants, both men and women, I will pour out my Spirit in those days. 30 I will show wonders in the heavens and on the earth, blood and fire and billows of smoke. 31 The sun will be turned to darkness and the moon to blood before the coming of the great and dreadful day of the LORD. 32 And everyone who calls on the name of the LORD will be saved; for on Mount Zion and in Jerusalem there will be deliverance, as the LORD has said, among the survivors whom the LORD calls.

To end my meditation I have an awesome song by Israel Houghton and New Breed called “Your Latter will be Greater”. I hope it blesses you today. Be encouraged and remember that God is with you in every season of your life. Seek for the latter Rain in your Life.
