TO ALL WHO LOVE JESUS,
2 Corinthians 10:4For the weapons of our warfare are not carnal but mighty in God for pulling down strongholds,
GOD'S HEAVENLY MESSENGERS ARE ALL AROUND US
Everyday, twenty four hours - around the clock there is a war going on all around us: demons of destruction on hellish assignments to steal, kill, and destroy. The good news is that there are more angels that are doing God's bidding than there are taking orders from Lucifer... The truth is for Christians, not only are we blessed with heavenly guardians sent by God to assist us in our battles with darkness; but we have been given every possible weapon needed to defeat and wreck havoc on the devil and those minions who serve him here in the earth.
Heb. 1:13-14 13 But to which of the angels has He ever said,“Sit at My right hand, Till I make Your enemies Your footstool”? 14 Are they not all ministering spirits sent forth to minister for those who will inherit salvation
Think of it, you and I are not in this battle alone. We have countless angels all around us ministering to us when we are sleeping and most certainly when we are awake! That should give you great consolation... We will never know until we reach the other side of this curtain we call life; just how many times our lives were kept from certain death or mishap - all because one of God's holy angels was there to intervene on our behalf... I'll leave that for now, but always know God has sent His' holy spirit to lead and guide us; which many Christians know - but, in addition He has sent us legions of heavenly angels to watch over His' children. When you think of weapons of spiritual warfare - do not discount the army of angels who are all around us protecting us, and warring against demons on our behalf...
In 2 Kings, chapter six, we find the prophet Elijah surrounded by the army of the Syrian King, and the servant of Elijah was terrified at the sight of this great army looking for the prophet Elijah. Elijah knew something the servant didn't. Elijah could see things that the servant couldn't.
2 KINGS 6:15 - 17
15 And when the servant of the man of God arose early and went out, there was an army, surrounding the city with horses and chariots. And his servant said to him, “Alas, my master! What shall we do?”
16 So he answered, “Do not fear, for those who are with us are more than those who are with them.” 17 And Elisha prayed, and said, “Lord, I pray, open his eyes that he may see.” Then the Lord opened the eyes of the young man, and he saw. And behold, the mountain was full of horses and chariots of fire all around Elisha.
WE ARE NOT ALONE...
FINAL THOUGHTS: Make no mistake, you and I are enveloped by a vast heavenly host that is constantly engaged in spiritual warfare and combat. This is going on in the highest places of human activity and endeavor here in the earth. In the halls of our government, in our colleges and schools of higher learning, in the workplace, in our homes, and even in the streets that we drive up and down in every day! God help us to have spiritual eyes to the see beyond what are physical senses tell us. We have many spiritual weapons that God has given us to war against the powers and rulers of darkness: The Word of God, the Cross, The Blood of Jesus, The Name of Jesus, the Gifts of the Spirit, our personal testimonies, Prayer and Fasting, and The Holy Spirit Himself living and dwelling within us!!! The demons should be quaking and trembling every time they see you or me coming their way... (you think they do?)
The point of this little message is simply this: WE DON'T FIGHT THIS BATTLE ALONE. God knows we need a "heavenly assist" in this war; and that is why He has given us angelic escorts to help us in this battle we fight everyday. Just realize, though you may not be able to see what's going on around you; we have angels here, now, right where you and I are at this very moment - who are here to protect us, and watch over us.
