“But to which of
the angels said He [God] at any time, Sit on My right hand, until I make thine enemies thy footstool? Are they [angels]
not all ministering spirits, sent forth to minister for them who shall be
heirs of salvation?” (Hebrews 1:13-14)
Here in the first chapter of Hebrews we
find two supernatural Ministries that are available to all Believers. There is the Ministry of Jesus and there
is the Ministry of Angels.
Although Jesus is the
greater of the two Ministries, the angels of God play a vitally important
role in our lives. The Bible says they are to minister or to serve,
to function publicly, on behalf of the Believer who is an heir of
“Therefore we ought to give the more
earnest heed to the things which we have heard, lest at any time we should
let them slip.” (Hebrews 2:1)
The Apostle is still talking about the
Ministry of Angels here. The chapter changed but the subject did
not. We are now being instructed to never let slip away the fact that angels
are servants who have been sent to help us.
“For if the word spoken by angels was stedfast, and every transgression and disobedience
received a just recompense of reward; How shall we escape, if we neglect so
great salvation; which hath at the first began to
be spoken by the Lord, and was confirmed unto us by them that heard Him.” (Hebrews
The word “salvation” used here is actually
“soteria.” It means “deliverance,
preservation, healing and soundness.” This is a direct reference to
the deliverance that comes through the Ministry of Angels.
Here in the Holy Scripture we are being encouraged to never carelessly
overlook the Ministry of Angels.
Satan sets many traps for Believers,
particularly those who use their faith to finance the salvation of the more
than 3 billion souls that I continue to refer to. How are we to escape
those traps if we overlook the deliverance Ministry of God’s Holy Angels?
Ministry of Angels & Protection
Barbara and I trusted God to give us a
certain vehicle. A Pastor friend from Arkansas personally gave
that vehicle to us and delivered it to us in Oklahoma. We
immediately took it out for a drive and a vehicle coming off the highway
cut in front of us, plowing into the right front fender.
our vehicle Barbara and I were rocked from side to side during the
However, it was as if we were cushioned by pillows on the
inside. We were completely kept from harm. The guilty driver
fled the scene of the accident. I pulled our vehicle over to check
I knew our nice little car was going to be pretty crushed.
I fully expected the fender, the headlight and the bumper to be
When I looked there was no indication of damage
whatsoever, not even the proverbial scratch. The angels of God took
the impact for us, inside and outside of the vehicle.
“For He shall give His angels charge over
thee to keep thee in all thy ways.” (Psalm 91:11)
“The angel of the Lord encampeth
round about them that fear Him, and delivereth
them.” (Psalm 34:7)
At the time of this “accident,” we did not
see angels with our physical eyes but we knew they were present because
we believe the written Word of God.
However, I have seen angels on multiple occasions
over more than three decades of walking with Jesus.
One angel whom
I watched at an accident scene in Tulsa, Oklahoma, was easily well
over ten feet tall. Walking from the scene of the accident, he
stepped right in front of our vehicle. I hit the brakes to avoid
hitting him. He was unmoved by our presence.
I shouted, “Did
you see him, Barbara?” She was sitting there wondering why I had
suddenly locked up the brakes.
She said, “No.”
I continued to
walk across the highway cloverleaf into an open field.
We then spent the next
fifteen or twenty minutes driving that cloverleaf over and over, looking
into the fields all around us, looking for the giant angel in white
clothing who suddenly just disappeared. There were no trees for him
to hide in. He was just gone.
Apparently he was associated with
someone from the overturned vehicle by the side of the road who had been taken away by ambulance.
Normally angels do their work beyond the
realm of physical sight. They do this in order to not call attention
to themselves. This way Jesus gets all the Glory for the work that
they do supernaturally. The angels of God never receive Glory or
worship for the things that they do.
The Apostle John fell at the
feet of the angel who took him through his Revelation. John began to
worship the angel. We are to never worship angels. They are our
fellow servants and brethren. They are not Deity. The angel
corrected John as follows.
“See thou do it not: for I am thy fellow
servant, and of thy brethren the prophets, and of
them which keep the sayings of this book: worship God.” (Revelation 22:9)
Angels are indeed sent into this world to
serve the Believer.
King Darius threw Daniel into the lions den for
worshipping God against the King’s decree. The next morning King
Darius shouted down into the lions den, “Daniel, is thy God able to deliver
Daniel responded, “My God hath sent His Angel and hath shut
the lions’ mouths, that they have not hurt me.” (Daniel 6:20-22)
King was so impressed with the delivering power of Daniel’s God that he
promoted Daniel tremendously in his kingdom.
“So this Daniel PROSPERED in the reign of Darius, and in the reign of Cyrus the Persian.” (Daniel
Daniel never would have prospered in the kingdom of Darius had the Angel
of the Lord not
done His job.
Angels bring deliverance
and cause prosperity to come in times of trouble.
you having trouble financially? Are you in a financial prison of
debt? Angels are well experienced in releasing people from prisons
such as they did for the Apostles together and Peter alone.
(Acts 5:19; 12:7-11.)
Do you desire to be free from financial debt so
that your life can be a testimony of increase and you can help finance the
End Time Harvest?
Ministry of Angels, Financial Deliverance & Words
Someone said, “The
Bible does not say that angels cause financial deliverance to come.”
“Bless ye the
Lord, all ye His hosts [angels]; ye ministers of His, that do His pleasure.”
The Bible says that the angels of God do
His pleasure. You will recall at the very beginning of these lessons on
Biblical prosperity how we talked about what gives God pleasure.
Let’s look at it again.
“Let them shout for joy, and be glad, that
favor My righteous cause: yea, let them say continually, Let the Lord be
magnified, which hath pleasure in the prosperity of His servant.” (Psalm
If the angels of God do God’s pleasure, and
God’s pleasure is in the prosperity of His servant, then angels do
prosperity! God uses angels to accomplish financial deliverance in
the lives of His children. There’s only one way that can happen.
It is as follows.
“Bless the Lord, ye His angels,
that excel in strength, that do His commandments, hearkening unto
the voice of His Word.” (Psalm 103:20)
Pick up your Bible, please. Put it to
your ear. Do you hear anything?
Of course you do not.
is silent until someone gives voice to it in the Earth.
The angels cannot obey the voice of God’s Word in the
Earth unless a Believer gives voice to it.
When we make
the quality decision to no longer speak Satan’s vile will of poverty and
lack, speaking God’s precious will of increase and abundance, our words
become as God’s words and the angels go to work accordingly.
“Therefore thus saith
the Lord, If thou return, then will I bring thee again, and thou shalt stand before Me: and if thou take forth the
precious from the vile, thou shalt be as My
mouth...” (Jeremiah 15:19)
God Almighty Himself has decreed that when
His children speak according to His written Word, their mouths become as His very own
The angels of God know this.
Angels are hard-wired to listen for and obey the Believer
who gives Biblical commands respectfully.
Biblical command is given, or the Word of God is expectantly spoken forth by
the Believer, the angels search the avenues of God’s wisdom,
even while we are sleeping, looking for ways to bring our words to
like God, do not violate human free moral agency, for they are instruments of
God. In other words, angels, like God, will not force themselves upon a
human being against their will. When angels hear human beings speak against
the promises of God for protection and provision, they will not violate
human free will and protect and provide regardless. Their hands are
basically tied, so to speak.
when God's holy angels hear human beings speaking in line with God's will by
giving voice to His written promises, they move immediately to protect and
provide for those believing ones.
is one of the reasons why the Bible says life and death are in the power of
the spoken word.
and life are in the power of the tongue: and they that love it shall eat the
fruit thereof." (Proverbs 18:21)
only stands to reason that the angels of God will respond to the Believer in
Christ who speaks in line with God's precious Holy written Word.
Because God hearkens unto the voice of His Word when it is spoken forth by
His children on Earth, it also stands to reason that the angels of God do
the same, for they are instruments designed to perform His perfect
“Bless the Lord, ye His angels,
that excel in strength, that do His commandments, hearkening unto
the voice of His Word.” (Psalm 103:20)
The Prophet Jesus' Amazing Revelation on the Power of Words
look together at something fascinating Jesus said about the power of the
Jesus answering saith unto them, Have the God kind of faith. 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 sayeth." (Mark 11:22-23)
we see the Prophet Jesus, God incarnate, instructing all Believers to speak
to the mountains in their lives, expecting them to be removed.
Frequently in the Bible mountains symbolize human obstacles. Let us
look at one example from the Prophet Zechariah.
who are you, O great mountain [of human obstacles]? Before Zerubbabel [who
with Joshua had led the return of the exiles from Babylon and was
undertaking the rebuilding of the Temple, before him] you shall become a
plain [a mere molehill]!" (Zechariah 4:7 Amp.)
we see clearly that when Jesus was referring to a "mountain" He,
too, was figuratively referring to human obstacles and problems, not a
there is something else we must seriously consider from Jesus' words in Mark
chapter 11 and verse 23.
Jesus emphasizes the importance of speaking forth in faith for our mountains
to be removed three times more often than silently believing.
made reference to speaking faith-filled words three times in this passage,
yet He referred to believing only once.
you see it?
is telling His disciples of all generations that they must find in the
Scripture where God has agreed to help them. Then they must initiate the
process of speaking forth those promises and praising God for those promises
three times more often than they simply and silently believe for them.
other words, they must consistently speak to their mountains to be removed.
is inconceivable to this author that any Believer in Jesus Christ would
think that the angels of God do not respond to the Believer who speaks forth
the Word of God, as Jesus instructed. When King David said by inspiration of
the Holy Spirit that the angels of God "do His commandments, hearkening
unto the voice of His Word" he was referring to the angels of God
responding to the faith-filled Words of the child of God. (Psalm 103:20)
is the Believer in Jesus Christ, not Jesus, not God the Father and not the
Holy Spirit, who gives voice to God's written Word in the Earth.
it is the Believer in Jesus Christ who gives Word commands to the angels of
God in the Earth.
us look together at something else Jesus said about the power of words.
generation of vipers, how can ye, being evil, speak good things? For out of
the abundance of the heart the mouth speaketh. A good man out of the good
treasure of the heart bringeth forth good things: and an evil man out of the
evil treasure bringeth forth evil things. But I say unto you, That every
idle word that men shall speak, they shall give account thereof in the Day
of Judgment. For by thy words thou shalt be justified, and by thy words thou
shalt be condemned." (Matthew 12:34-37)
Jesus is rebuking the Pharisees for wrongly believing they can speak words
of evil and bring forth good things in their lives.
to bringing forth good things in life, Jesus said a good man or woman has the
power to bring forth those good things by speaking forth the good
Word of God.
the other hand, an evil man or woman brings forth evil things by speaking
crosswise and contrary to the written Word of God.
went on to say that every "idle word" spoken, referring to negative speech that goes
against God's Word, would be accounted for on the Day of Judgment.
Because we are going to
spend Eternity based upon how effectively
we built up His Kingdom with our words and
actions, or how we tore down His
Kingdom with our words and actions.
Jesus went on to say that our words will either bless us or curse us, now in
this life and when we stand as Believers before the BEMA Judgment Seat of
Christ or as unbelievers at the Great
White Throne Judgment.
is impossible to believe, based upon these Scriptures we are studying
together, that the angels of God have absolutely nothing to do with the
power of the spoken Word in the life of the Believer in Jesus Christ.
The angels of God pay extremely close attention to the disciples of Christ
and their words, looking for authority to cause the blessings of God to come
This is one of the things Jesus was referring to when He boldly
declared one of the most powerful statements ever spoken, "For by thy
words thou shalt be justified, and by thy words thou shalt be
Apostle James & the Power of Words
Apostle James wrote in agreement with Jesus' bold teachings on words. Referring to the
proper use of the human tongue, James wrote the following.
bless we God, even the Father; and wherewith curse we men, which are made
after the similitude of God. Out of the same mouth proceedeth blessing and
cursing. My brethren, these things ought not so to be. Does a fountain send forth at the same
place sweet water and bitter? Can the fig tree, my brethren, bear olive
berries? Either a vine figs? So can no fountain both yield salt water
and fresh." (James 3:9-12)
could be more clear than the teaching of James, Jesus half-brother, on the
power of the spoken Word? James was raised by Joseph and Mary in the same
home as his brother, Jesus, and learned this powerful revelation from his
big brother, Jesus.
We can be sure that James also clearly understood the connection
between the spoken Word of God and angelic intervention.
Apostle Paul & the Power of Words
Apostle Paul also wrote in agreement with Jesus' outstanding revelation on
the power of words.
having the same spirit of faith, according as it is written, I believed, and
therefore have I spoken; we also believe, and therefore speak." (2
illiterate of Jesus', James' and Paul's teachings on the power of the spoken
Word, disrespectfully refer to this principle as "Name It and Claim
It." Little do they realize they speak against their Creator when
doing so. Personally, I would rather be referred to as a "Name It
and Claim It" rather than a "Doubt It and Do Without
of Creator God, in the midst of his teachings on Father Abraham, the Apostle
Paul further revealed the power of the spoken Word.
it is written, I have made thee (Abraham) a father of many nations, before
Him Whom he believed, even God, Who quickeneth the dead, and calleth those
things which be not as though they were." (Romans 4:17)
the Apostle Paul, speaking by inspiration of the Holy Spirit, said that God
"calleth those things which be not as though they were." Yet
another clear reference to the power of the spoken Word. In this case
it is a reference to the power that is released when God speaks.
example, in Genesis chapter one, Almighty God spoke no less than ten times
and each time He spoke something new and good came into existence. (Genesis
1:3, 6, 9, 11, 14, 20, 24, 26, 28, 29, 31)
Children of God Imitate Their Father
might say, "Just because God's Words have power does not mean that His
children's words have power."
However, such a statement would be
in blatant contradiction to every verse of Scripture we just read from the
writings of David, Jesus, James and Paul.
Not only do God's Words have power,
but His children's words have power to bring forth good when they imitate
the way He speaks. Even as children in the natural imitate the way
their parents speak, our Father God expects His children to imitate the way
ye therefore imitators of God as dear children." (Ephesians 5:1)
true children of God imitate their Father in both word and deed.
children of God are servants of God and are called to lives of obedience to
Him. A servant is
not a true servant who does not obey his Master. A true servant will obey
God's commands to speak in line with His written Word concerning all
the affairs of this life.
When His servants obey His commands to speak
forth His promises, the angels of God will indeed take those Words as
commands to cause those Words to come to pass.
He will give His angels [especial] charge over you to accompany and defend
and preserve you in all your ways [of obedience and service]." (Psalms
the Lord, ye His angels, that excel in strength, that do His commandments
hearkening unto the voice of His Word." (Psalm 103:20)
they (angels) not all ministering spirits, sent forth to minister for them
who shall be heirs of salvation?" (Hebrews 1:14)
angels of God are sent forth from Heaven to minister for (serve) those of us
who have inherited salvation in Jesus Christ.
ministering angels of God receive the faith-filled, Bible-based words of the
Believer as direct commands of Holy God.
angels know that His written Word spoken is both His revealed Will and His

I am a money magnet because I understand why money comes. Money comes
to me so I can seek and save the lost, destroy the works of Satan in the
Earth, get out of debt and be a testimony of increase to everyone the

direction. My God meets all my need according to His riches in Glory

want. Everything I put my hand to prospers. Let the Lord be
