Angels Part Two (Please READ or re-read part one on angels first) https://chefk.wordpress.com/2012/04/10/angels-watching-over-me/
Revelation 8:2 King James Version (KJV) And I saw the seven angels which stood before God; and to them were given seven trumpets.
Many are seeking the assistance of angels in their lives, believing that angels lead and guide their every step in their day to day lives. Seeking and seeing angels in most of what they must do in their daily lives. So it is imperative that we get to understand who or what these angels may or may not be, and to understand those who portray themselves as guides to the realm of angels.
Many refuse any longer to be labeled as the followers of the occult as such but rather as “New Age thinkers” when in fact there is nothing new in it, They believe they are communication with angels but are in fact in communication with the occult and the demonic hordes. There many who present themselves as guides through communication with angels these angels becoming their “spirit guides”? These guides are assigned at conception as “angels” but rather than guide us to life in Christ these guides lead us down the path of death and destruction and in fact that is their very assignment as they are demonic and not angels.Death and destruction is their primary goal, the sooner they can accomplish this the better, if they can convince a mother into aborting an unborn child they shall do so, accomplishing their assignment before the child is born.
Some believe these guides are dear depart loved ones, ascended masters” or unseen helpers with only the best intentions for your life, however the facts are very different, they are not guides or ministering spirits but demonic and very evil, attempting to deceive people into believing the exact opposite. 2 Corinthians 11:14-15- And no marvel; for Satan himself is transformed into an angel of light.15 Therefore it is no great thing if his ministers also be transformed as the ministers of righteousness; whose end shall be according to their works.
So we must clearly know and understand with whom we are communicating, the fallen angels are servants of Satan. True angels of the Lord will only act upon instruction of the Lord and His Word. No-one can order an angel to do anything for any reason, if anyone believes that they have power over angels they are deluded and will eventually find themselves in grave problems, be assured that the angels they command are the fallen angels who are playing upon the persons guile. Psalm 103:20- Bless the Lord, ye his angels, that excel in strength, that do his commandments, hearkening unto the voice of his word. For this reason we teach ourselves to speak the Word of God, so that those angels of the Lord assigned to us (which there are many) will find the we are in agreement with the Lord and His Word and they are then free to carry out their assignment.
The Word when spoken brings the spirit into line with that Word and brings life. Death and destruction lie in the power of the tongue, as is life and liberty. John 6:63 Good News Translation (GNT) What gives life is God’s Spirit; human power is of no use at all. The words I have spoken to you bring God’s life-giving Spirit.
The fallen angels, familiar spirits, and other demonic forces have but one assignment, to separate you from God and His love for you. Any technique they can employ to complete this assignment is exactly what they will use. We commit that we will fight them in every arena and we will win the battle. We must be fully confident of this: Romans 8:37-39 -Nay, in all these things we are more than conquerors through him that loved us. 38 For I am persuaded, that neither death, nor life, nor angels, nor principalities, nor powers, nor things present, nor things to come, 39 Nor height, nor depth, nor any other creature, shall be able to separate us from the love of God, which is in Christ Jesus our Lord.
Revelation makes mention that there are seven angels; occult circles teach that they are able to communicate with these angles. So then who are they, look at an ancient book (considered a holy book yet not a of the bible) the book of Enoch. Much of what is known regarding angels and demons can be found within its pages. However if scripture does not back what you find there stay with scripture.
ENOCH Chapter 20
And these are the names of the holy angels who watch.
1 Uriel, [ also called Auriel and Oriel meaning, “God is my light” ] one of the holy angels, who is over the world and over Tartarus.
2 Raphael, [ meaning, “It is God who heals” ] one of the holy angels, who is over the spirits of men.
3 Raguel, [ meaning, “Friend of God” ] one of the holy angels who takes vengeance on the world of the luminaries.
4 Michael, [ meaning “who is like God” also viewed as the field commander of the Army of God ] one of the holy angels, to wit, he that is set over the best part of mankind and over chaos.
5 Saraqael, [ also Sariel meaning, “Command of God” ] one of the holy angels, who is set over the spirits, who sin in the spirit.
6 Gabriel, [ a messenger from God, “Strength of God” ] one of the holy angels, who is over Paradise and the serpents and the Cherubim.
7 Remiel, [ A Watcher ] one of the holy angels, whom God set over those who rise from the dead, in effect the angel that watches over those that are to resurrect.
Here we find the names of the seven archangels, yet we know from scripture that they were many thousands more angels of differing types. The Scriptures reveal that God created nine orders of angels: Seraphim, Cherubim, Thrones, Dominations, Principalities, Powers, Virtues, Archangels, and Angels. So there are two angels classes the fallen and the heavenly. The fallen are as they were in heaven (holding the same position in their fallen state) except they have changed that state from good to evil. Jude 6 -And the angels which kept not their first estate, but left their own habitation, he hath reserved in everlasting chains under darkness unto the judgment of the great day. Depending on the circumstance “the angel of the Lord” could be any one of the ones above, yet at any situation each angel will deliver their message from God with the fact that it is the Lord who has spoken and nothing less. THEY SPEAK THE WORD. Psalm 103:20 – Bless the Lord, ye his angels, that excel in strength, that do his commandments, hearkening unto the voice of his word.
There are many very false medians that wander the globe, presenting themselves as knowledgeable and in constant communication with various types of fallen angels both great and small. However these diviners “are” not in communication with angels but rather with the evil fallen angels. Notice the nine listed above (I highlighted their names meaning) they only do what God commands and they only speak His Word, anything else, or anything that does not line up with the Word of God is absolutely false. 2 Corinthians 11:13-14 – For such are false apostles, deceitful workers, transforming themselves into the apostles of Christ.14 And no marvel; for Satan himself is transformed into an angel of light. The Lord does assign angels to watch and keep us on our life’s journey; in fact Jesus had to overcome one of Satan’s temptations regarding this fact, the devil quoted scripture in his attempt but failed because Christ quoted the life filled Word. Luke 4:9-12 – And he brought him to Jerusalem, and set him on a pinnacle of the temple, and said unto him, If thou be the Son of God, cast thyself down from hence:10 For it is written, He shall give his angels charge over thee, to keep thee:11 And in their hands they shall bear thee up, lest at any time thou dash thy foot against a stone.12 And Jesus answering said unto him, It is said, Thou shalt not tempt the Lord thy God. Jesus knew that there is powerful truth found in Psalms 91:11 (what devil quoted) but to misuse the assignment of the angels would be considered a lure to trap the Lord which He could not do (nor should we) which is exactly what we attempt to do when falsely attempt communication with true guardian angels.
Believing and communication with the supernatural is the right of every Christians that communication is with God and the Holy Spirit through the name of Jesus. This is a great honor, so much so that even those fallen angels are envious and tremble at the thought. A conversation with a fallen angel is simply a conversation of lies. Christ gave them no place, nor should we. Mark 1:34 – And he healed many that were sick of divers diseases, and cast out many devils; and suffered not the devils to speak, because they knew him. They knew Him, do they know you, for just as Jesus is so are you when you believe and walk in the Spirit of God. 1 John 4:17 – Herein is our love made perfect, that we may have boldness in the day of judgment: because as he is, so are we in this world.
Jesus gave no place to fallen angels, in fact He spoke and they listened to Him. They want you to believe that they carry great power over you when in fact you are the one who carries the power over them in the name of Jesus. These fallen angels know God and fear God and fear those who know the Power of the Word of God when spoken with the authority of the name of Jesus. James 2:19, “You believe that there is one God. You do well. Even the demons believe—and tremble!”
Why is it dangerous for anyone to have communication with such spirits? Simply because these spirits will bring destruction to your relationship with God. They are master liars; they can place small grains of truth into your conversation which gives them a disguise of being genuine, while knowing that they are not. As they have been assigned at conception they have knowledge of an individual that no-one else does or can, so they are able to do and say things that are convincing, yet false or destructive. God clearly warns against having any communication with such because of their ability to deceive, He knows once the familiar spirit has a grip upon a person it is very difficult for that person to be set free, as they continue to seek more and even more of the deceiving lies the familiar sows within their heart. Deuteronomy 18:10-14 – There shall not be found among you any one that maketh his son or his daughter to pass through the fire, or that useth divination, or an observer of times, or an enchanter, or a witch.11 Or a charmer, or a consulter with familiar spirits, or a wizard, or a necromancer.12 For all that do these things are an abomination unto the Lord: and because of these abominations the Lord thy God doth drive them out from before thee.13 Thou shalt be perfect with the Lord thy God.14 For these nations, which thou shalt possess, hearkened unto observers of times, and unto diviners: but as for thee, the Lord thy God hath not suffered thee so to do.
When looking at verse 13, the word translated as “prefect” here is the Hebrew word “tamam” which means “being complete, blameless, without as blemish, full of integrity” the walking with familiar spirits pollutes a person and draws them away from God and into darkness. When you look at the chart of spirits in part one of this writing you see that the familiar spirit is an angel (fallen one) that is assigned to us at birth, for this reason they have vast knowledge of our lives and can even appear to others as us, especially after our death while they grieve. This is how they deceive, but God wants us to walk with Him, trust Him to lead us, He will guide us.
Remember that a familiar spirits goal is to get you to believe them rather than God, thus they get us to believe in them at very early ages. Every child knows that witches have brooms to fly in moonlit nights through the sky. They have big cauldrons in which they make potions from herbs, dried animal parts, mushrooms and other such ingredients. They use flying ointment and dust to leave the earth, through the chimney. They have black cats as pets, or toads which they consider special (familiar) spirits. And that witches do wear the black pointy hats which is known to raise energy frequencies. They have imps and familiar spirits that do their bidding. Is it any wonder that the witch costume is the number one costume of the Halloween celebration? The deception of Halloween is the high day of worship for Satan and his devils, which includes familiar spirits, in actuality this is worship of false gods. Every child knows Halloween and and what it means, yet do these same children know and love God. Proving the deception Satan has sowed within the nations and the hearts of the children therein. Deuteronomy 11:16 -Take heed to yourselves, that your heart be not deceived, and ye turn aside, and serve other gods, and worship them;
Why is the communication with familiar spirits detestable to God, He is the Father and as such desires no harm to come to His children, all this communication with destructive spirits only brings confusion and hurt to God’s child and could eventually lead to destruction.
The great thing is, that once you know Jesus and are filled with the Holy Spirits these spirits and those who practice communications with such spirits fear you. I recall a day when I took my family to Los Angeles for a Christmas vacation, as we walked down the famous Venice Beach we began to approach a woman who had a table with tarot cards and crystal balls offering to tell anyone’s fortune. Suddenly she saw me coming toward her, she jump up and began screaming at me “stay away from me, stay away from me” very quickly she packed up her cards and crystal balls, folded her table and literally ran away down the beach and left the area. I didn’t even say a word; the presence of the Lord upon us was enough to drive her away. The power of the Lord within a believer is always greater than any power of a fallen spirit, demon or Satan himself. The communication with familiar spirits will eventually lead to death and destruction as one is lead further and further away from God and deeper and deeper into the grip of deception. It matters not who you are; communication with such always leads to destruction. Look at what happened to King Saul for doing exactly this, 1 Chronicles 10:13-14(a) – So Saul died for his transgression which he committed against the Lord, even against the word of the Lord, which he kept not, and also for asking counsel of one that had a familiar spirit, to enquire of it; And enquired not of the Lord.
Communing with these familiar spirits is nothing less than idolatry and witchcraft which we have been clearly warned that this will lead us into destruction. Our lives are best when we follow the assignment best suited to us, that of following the Holy Spirit. No fallen angels, no spirit guide, no shaman, no familiar spirit, no clairvoyant, no witch or warlock can provide you the powers of living life as the Holy Spirit can.
Galatians 5:19-24 – Now the works of the flesh are manifest, which are these; Adultery, fornication, uncleanness, lasciviousness, 20 Idolatry, witchcraft, hatred, variance, emulations, wrath, strife, seditions, heresies, 21 Envyings, murders, drunkenness, revellings, and such like: of the which I tell you before, as I have also told you in time past, that they which do such things shall not inherit the kingdom of God. 22 But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, longsuffering, gentleness, goodness, faith, 23 Meekness, temperance: against such there is no law. 24 And they that are Christ’s have crucified the flesh with the affections and lusts.
The Holy Spirit helps, inspires, and strengthens us. Ephesians 3:16—That He would grant you, according to the riches of His glory, to be strengthened with might through His Spirit in the inner man.
The Holy Spirit guides us and gives us understanding of God’s Word. John 16:13—However, when He, the Spirit of truth, has come, He will guide you into all truth; for He will not speak on His own authority, but whatever He hears He will speak; and He will tell you things to come.
The Holy Spirit enhances our relationship with the Lord. John 14:26—But the Helper, the Holy Spirit, whom the Father will send in My name, He will teach you all things, and bring to your remembrance all things that I said to you.
The Holy Spirit empowers our witness to others. Acts 1:8—But you shall receive power when the Holy Spirit has come upon you; and you shall be witnesses to Me.
The Holy Spirit gives us spiritual gifts. 1 Corinthians 12:8–10—For to one is given the word of wisdom through the Spirit, to another the word of knowledge through the same Spirit, (9) to another faith by the same Spirit, to another gifts of healings by the same Spirit, (10) to another the working of miracles, to another prophecy, to another discerning of spirits, to another different kinds of tongues, to another the interpretation of tongues.
Ephesians 1:10-14 – That in the dispensation of the fullness of times he might gather together in one all things in Christ, both which are in heaven, and which are on earth; even in him: 11 In whom also we have obtained an inheritance, being predestinated according to the purpose of him who worketh all things after the counsel of his own will: 12 That we should be to the praise of his glory, who first trusted in Christ. 13 In whom ye also trusted, after that ye heard the word of truth, the gospel of your salvation: in whom also after that ye believed, ye were sealed with that holy Spirit of promise, 14 Which is the earnest of our inheritance until the redemption of the purchased possession, unto the praise of his glory.
