Angels are activated by orders given by God to give instruction and messages to people to help them and God is pleased when we receive their ministry.
Matt 2:13 And when they were departed, behold, the angel of the Lord appeareth to Joseph in a dream, saying, Arise, and take the young child and his mother, and flee into Egypt, and be thou there until I bring thee word: for Herod will seek the young child to destroy him. KJV
God sent this angel because Joseph and Mary needed instruction where to go because Herod had sent out an order to kill the baby Jesus. So Joseph had a clear word what to do in this situation. The Lord will do the same for us when we need precise words from the Lord and expect them.
Here’s another time when God gave orders to an angel to come to earth:
Ex 33:2 And I will send an angel before thee; and I will drive out the Canaanite, the Amorite, and the Hittite, and the Perizzite, the Hivite, and the Jebusite: KJV
I certainly would like God’s angel go before me, wouldn’t you? They will destroy our enemy and his plans against us. They will drive them out of our way so that we can proceed, move ever forward in our destiny.
Jesus told Peter:
Matt 16:19 And I will give unto thee the keys of the kingdom of heaven: and whatsoever thou shalt bind on earth shall be bound in heaven: and whatsoever thou shalt loose on earth shall be loosed in heaven. KJV
When we use our authority given to us in the name of Jesus and bind the unlawful work of our enemy in our lives and others and loose angels to work for us then they will go to work and destroy the enemy and their plans against us.
After we use our authority in the name of Jesus over the enemy and his work in our lives, we then loose the angels to go and destroy our enemy and his plans and then the angels go to work immediately so we can have victory after victory. Angels are a key to kingdom power in the earth for us. These angels keep the curses here in the earth from us that would stop our progress in Kingdom living and doing Kingdom business in the earth.
I especially feel in my spirit as I write this that angels are going to be loosed to stop the curse of poverty, lack and debt that has kept the body of Christ bound and kept us from the financial blessing we are promised in the Kingdom so that we can prosper the Kingdom work and reach souls for the Kingdom. I believe there are prosperity angels just for that purpose of loosing our prosperity. So we need to use our authority and loose the prosperity angels every day.
Ps 91:11-12 For he shall give his angels charge over thee, to keep thee in all thy ways.12 They shall bear thee up in their hands, lest thou dash thy foot against a stone. KJV
Zech 1:11 So they answered the Angel of the LORD, who stood among the myrtle trees, and said, "We have walked to and fro throughout the earth, and behold, all the earth is resting quietly." NKJV
Angels are all over the earth and they know what is going on everywhere and they know the danger spots and they know how to protect us at all times. Praise the Lord. Count on angels to protect you in these dangerous times. They know when or when not to get on a plane or what route to take to work that would be safest or whether or not a building is safe to enter.
Angels are activated by God to give instruction to people of faith.
Dan 4:13 "I saw in the visions of my head while on my bed, and there was a watcher, a holy one, coming down from heaven. NKJV
We activate angels by speaking the Word of God over ourselves and family and all situations in our lives. Ps 103:20,21 is an important scripture for us to remember when it comes activating angels on our behalf.
Ps 103:20-21 Bless the LORD, you His angels, Who excel in strength, who do His word, Heeding the voice of His word. 21 Bless the LORD, all you His hosts, You ministers of His, who do His pleasure. NKJV
Angels are activated to move and respond on our behalf to the Word of God that we speak by faith. We are the voice of the Word of God. The Word goes out and the angels respond. They heed the voice of His Word.
Mark 11:23 For verily I say unto you, That whosoever shall say unto this mountain, Be thou removed, and be thou cast into the sea; and shall not doubt in his heart, but shall believe that those things which he saith shall come to pass; he shall have whatsoever he saith. KJV
We have to voice the Word of God for the angels to be activated.
Angels are activated anytime the Word of God is prayed in prayer, proclaimed as a confession of faith or preached.
Angels are activated by our prayers and they answer our prayers. There are two scriptures where angels are viewed as attending to the prayers of believers:
Rev 8:4-5 And the smoke of the incense, with the prayers of the saints, ascended before God from the angel's hand. 5 Then the angel took the censer, filled it with fire from the altar, and threw it to the earth. NKJV
Rev 5:8-9 Now when He had taken the scroll, the four living creatures and the twenty-four elders fell down before the Lamb, each having a harp, and golden bowls full of incense, which are the prayers of the saints. NKJV
Down through time believers have been watched over by angels. In this scripture in Rev 5 the prayers of believers are the “golden bowls of incense”. Angels keep the prayers of believers. They are in the care of angels as a sweet smell before the throne of God. As the angels play their harps and worship, the prayers of the believers ascend as incense before the throne of God. Our prayers ascend to God out of the angel’s hand and then our prayers are thrown back to the earth as fire! This powerful image of prayer is confirmed in Ps 141:1,2:
Ps 141:1-2 O LORD, I am calling to you. Please hurry! Listen when I cry to you for help! 2 Accept my prayer as incense offered to you, and my upraised hands as an evening offering. NLT
Notice the image of incense and prayer. The angels of worship attend to all the prayers, the cries for help from God’s people. Scriptures show us that angelic worship includes watching over the prayers of believers. They gather all prayers and offer them as a sacrifice to God. And then God uses angels to answer the prayers. In the due season the Holy Spirit and the angels of fire move to answer the prayers of believers.
Our prayers are carried, conveyed, protected and answered by angels.
Here is a scriptural example of how angels help to answer our prayers:
Luke 1:8-12 And it came to pass, that while he executed the priest's office before God in the order of his course, 9 According to the custom of the priest's office, his lot was to burn incense when he went into the temple of the Lord. 10 And the whole multitude of the people were praying without at the time of incense. 11 And there appeared unto him an angel of the Lord standing on the right side of the altar of incense. 12 And when Zacharias saw him, he was troubled, and fear fell upon him. KJV
Zacharias was burning incense as people were praying at the hour of incense. They knew their prayers mixed with sacrifice and worship were powerful. Then an angel appeared at the altar of incense. The angel was gathering the prayers of the believers and then appeared to Zacharias and told him the prayers of his wife, Elizabeth were being answered and she would have a child.
We need to remember our prayers really matter to our heavenly Father and they activate angels to assist us. There is no prayer that goes neither unnoticed nor unanswered and that means even if you pray and don’t feel anything happened.
So just remember when you pray that angels abide in the secret place of prayer and are ready to take all your prayers to God.
Ps 91:1,11 He that dwelleth in the secret place of the most High shall abide under the shadow of the Almighty. 11 For he shall give his angels charge over thee, to keep thee in all thy ways. KJV
Remember it doesn’t matter if one person prays or a group of people pray; angels are put into action by all prayers.
Remember the best time to pray is when in intense worship because there are always angels there in worship.
Remember angels are still watching over our prayers that have yet to be answered. They are in the hands of angels, in a safe place so keep in faith your prayers are being answered no matter how long it has been.
Remember your prayers are a sweet aroma to God.
Remember and visualize when you pray that your prayers are rising to God from the hands of angels who are here to help you.
Remember angels cannot assist you when you allow negative words and negative confessions come out of your mouth because these kinds of words stop the miracle working power of God and stop the work of the angels.
Remember we pray in faith and the angels take them up to God and God will grant us our request and the angels will then descend from God and deliver them.
Even though your body doesn’t feel any different or things haven’t changed but only get worse; just remember God has entrusted your prayers with angels until the appointed time.
Whether you are worshiping the Lord by yourself or with a group or when you are listening to music or you are singing by yourself angels are activated. They love the worship and come to be there to participate.
All scripture is given by God
2 Tim 3:16 Every Scripture is God-breathed (given by His inspiration) AMP
Angels came as God moved among men by the Spirit and they participated in the delivery of scripture.
Acts 7:53 …who have received the law by the direction of angels…NKJV
Gal 3:19-20 What purpose then does the law serve? It was added because of transgressions, till the Seed should come to whom the promise was made; and it was appointed through angels by the hand of a mediator. NKJV
Angels delivered the Law of the Old Testament. Angels had a lot to do with the giving of scripture and protecting it and also the end of it which we call the Law, the rules.
