ANGELS AND THEIR POSTS (2)
Now, we need to look at what angels do at their posts and the implication of that on our spirituality as Christians and ministers
1) THEY ARE WATCHMEN. A watchman is a man that stands on the top of a watchtower at the entrance of a city or state or country or land, he watches over every movement of people and things that enters through the city gate and exit from the city gate, meaning that the first person to know if an attack is coming against the land and the people is the watchman at the border of such territory. But the way angels do their own watching is more deeper than this, for instance, the angels watching over the church does not just stand at the gates of churches, they stand at the “gates of your soul” to see how much we believe God, love God, trust God, love God’s people, the motive through which we do the work of God, our level of the fear of God, Holiness, Purity and Righteousness, etc
Angels are very good in watching and they have the strength to penetrate into anything (I have said it during my previous teachings that angels can shrink into the tiniest thing to perform operations therein), Angels also have fiery eyes that can scan deep through things, meaning that if an angel is standing in front of you, he can by the Power of God scan deep into you to discern your thoughts, intentions and desires and passions and lusts and know who you really are, they don’t look at your outward appearance and verbal confessions alone, they discern deep into your heart, therefore, they know it when you are saying things you do not actually mean
When I speak with God and the angels, it’s usually a heart to heart conversation, and it’s like they are talking inside my heart and I am talking inside their hearts, So, the connection is at the heart level, and if I say anything that I do not actually meant, they will ask me questions like “Are you sure about this?”, My point here is that, nothing is hidden to the eyes of the angels watching us, your life is like a very transparent glass before them, and this is the same way God sees us, and this is why whenever we pray and worship before God, we must do it in TRUTH, Open your heart before God because you are actually open before Him and let’s stop deceiving ourselves
God has a lot of His angels stationed in many places in the earth, and these places include: churches, ministries, hotels, schools, banks, hospitals, homes, marriages, on the highways, institutions, organizations, companies, market places, on the internet, on the seas and oceans, in the government houses and agencies, and in everywhere we have humans. And the angels in these places take records of everything that happens there on daily basis, and not only that, they also see to how to bring to pass or enforce the will of God in those places. And this is why every believer need to take the Gospel of Christ to everywhere we have humans (because angels are already there to make the gospel prosper)
Let’s look at a biblical account that shows that angels are watching over nations and peoples
So the Lord told Abraham, “I have heard a great outcry from Sodom and Gomorrah, because their sin is so flagrant. I am going down to see if their actions are as wicked as I have heard. If not, I want to know.”
Genesis 18:20-21 NLT
Here, God said He heard a great outcry from Sodom and Gomorrah, that “outcry” was an angelic cry, it was the angels watching the land that cried to God against the land, So, angels react to the evils, unrighteousness and wickedness and sins going on among men in the earth.
Recently, the Lord was showing me that He is the first to detect sin than the devil, meaning that, whenever you sin, God finds out about your sins first even before Satan, God told me that His Spirit moves through everything He created and if anything is out of place or against His will, He knows it first before anyone else. And this is why anyone of you who always walk in the Spirit will hardly sin against God
Galatians 5: 16. This I say then, Walk in the Spirit, and ye shall not fulful the lust of the flesh.
So I say, let the Holy Spirit guide your lives. Then you won’t be doing what your sinful nature craves.
Galatians 5:16 NLT
2) POLLUTION AND DEFILEMENT CAN CHASE AWAY YOUR ANGEL. Many of you have chased the angels God sent to you away through your polluted lifestyles, because angels are very sensitive to sins and defilements even when you were still thinking about those sins, they could not help many believers God sent them to help, many of us don’t cooperate with the angels attached to our lives and destinies, and this usually grieve the angels so much that they just leave everything they came to do for you and some of them never come back again. Angels share the same holiness nature God has and therefore if your life is so dirty and unrighteous, they can’t stay nor operate in your life. Most of things we put on our bodies as ornaments for beauty are defilements in the sight of the angels and they react to them so strongly, Also, every form of seductive dressings we wear on ourselves, I’m referring to dresses that are so tight, dresses that exposes your nakedness and sensitive body parts etc are defilements in the sights of the angels…There are many angels that have left many churches and ministries because of the defilements in the lives of the people there
Exodus 23: 20. Behold, I send an Angel before thee, to keep thee in the way, and to bring thee into the place which I have prepared. 21. Beware of him, and obey his voice, provoke him not; for he will not pardon your transgressions: for my name is in him.
Get rid of your pollutions and defilements, that your God may help you!
I will stop here. God bless you all. Amen.
