ALOHA FAMILY  & FRIENDS,  Beloved of God,  3:16-18

    9/20/19,    (Across my desk this morning.)

Today’s Scripture
“Praise the Lord, you his angels, you mighty ones who do his bidding, who obey his word…”
(Psalm 103:20, NIV)
Angels Move On Your Behalf

Did you know that when you speak words of faith, angels are dispatched to move on your behalf? The Scripture tells us that God gives His angels charge over us. That means, when God hears you declaring His Word, He says to the angels, “Do you hear My child speaking words of faith? He believes I can do great things. Angels, I have an assignment for you. Go to work and begin to turn the situation around.” And the angels obey His Word!

If we could pull back the curtain on the unseen realm, we would see a host of angels and heavenly beings watching over us. That’s why it’s so important to guard what we say because with our words, we either open a door for God and His angels to move on our behalf, or we open a door for the enemy and the forces of darkness.”

Make the decision today to only speak words of faith and life over you, your home and your family. Declare God’s Word and His promises and let your words set the angels into motion to help you fulfill the destiny God has planned for you!

A Prayer for Today
“Father in heaven, thank You for the relationships in my life. Help me find creative ways to connect with the people I love. Help me to walk and live in a spirit of unity as You commanded in Jesus’ name. Amen.”

My thoughts:
The Greek word Angelos simply means Messenger and it is the context that determines if heavenly or earthly.  Mostly it means heavenly but in some cases it could mean a Christian or the LORD.  Sometimes we get to see the heavenly Angels if God opens our eyes into HIS spiritual world.   And each of us has an assigned heavenly angel to try to keep us from getting hurt.  But much of the time we are too busy with noise pollution to hear him.  A certain quietness of spirit is necessary in order to be able to hear him.  Jude writes about an angelic encounter and so does Paul in many places,  Heb.1 & 2 are good chapters to consider.  In Heb. 1:14 the Angels are called “Ministering Spirits, sent forth to minister for those who shall be heirs of salvation.  Notice it says, “for us” and not “to us.”  In Heb. 1:7 God calls us as, HIS Ministers, a flame of fire.  So the Angels are available to help us as God’s potential children but when we come of age we will be joint heirs with Christ Jesus as HE is the first born among many brethren and we also are to be made into the image and likeness of God.

Of course this means that we must set our will 100% to want to do this to be there.  We have to renounce our citizenship with the world and the world’s system to be renewed and born from above by the Spirit of God.  We are to be granted a new citizenship in the Eternal Kingdom of God if we decide to do this.  Rom. 8:13 reads like this: 13 For if we live after the flesh, ye shall die: but if we through the Spirit do mortify (put to death) the deeds of the body, ye shall live (have God’s life.)  Romans 10:9-10 follows soon after.  So the Angels are on call to help us with God’s Grace (power) to be born from above and sanctified (made holy) and to be made ready for the Kingdom of God if we want to…. with our whole heart.  To make this happen it takes faith (Heb. 11) and faith comes by going through the Word of God, over and over until it becomes more real than the things of this world. 

So in the Holy Scriptures Angel simply is a Greek word meaning messenger.  The context determines what kind of a messenger.

Like Baptism in the Gr. is to place one thing in another needing context to understand what is being place into what.   And also the word bishop simple in the Gr. means overseer, regardless of what kind.  Again needing context to know the details.   Seems to me that the translators used some of the Gr. words in order to avoid a doctrine conflict with the church of the 1600’s.

Yours, in HIS great love and wonderful grace and mercy,   Ken<><   (Past blogs are available as a link on our homepage.)
