Starting with the Bible Basics
by Pastor John Hamel
“Bless the Lord, ye
his angels, that excel in strength, that do his
commandments, hearkening unto the voice of his word.” (Psalm 103:20)
Are you a Believer in Jesus Christ?
If you are, the Bible says
the angels of God are waiting to help you.
Angels, by the way, are not plump little naked babies flying around with
bows and arrows. They are powerful Beings who “excel in strength.”
Many are Warriors who are waiting for you to “commission” them in order
that they may help you. (Daniel 10:5-14)
I have seen angels both with
and without wings.
The Bible is
clear. The angels hearken to the voice of God’s Word and it is the
Believer who serves as God’s mouthpiece in the Earth. (Jeremiah
15:19) When you, as a Believer, tell your angels what to
do, they will do it.
Of course, you
cannot tell them to do foolish things that are wrong and in opposition to
However, as long as God has agreed in the Bible to
meet your particular need, you can respectfully commission your angels to
cause that need to be met.
For example, the
Bible says, “But my God shall supply all your need according to his
riches in glory by Christ Jesus.” (Philippians 4:19) Therefore,
you can say, “Angels of God, I commission you to go now and cause the money
for that bill to come, in Jesus’ Name.”
The Bible also says, “For he shall give his angels charge over thee, to
keep thee in all thy ways.” (Psalm 91:11) You can say, “Angels, I instruct you to accompany,
preserve and defend me in all my ways, in Jesus’ Name.” They will do
as you respectfully command and keep you from accidents, incidents and
This will work on
behalf of your family members as well. After all, angels are Ministering Spirits sent
forth from Heaven to help you as an “heir of
Salvation.” (Hebrews 1:14)
Again, this is a special, supernatural
Ministry reserved only for those who believe in Jesus as their Master, Lord
In this present
evil world, there are other supernatural entities we must
also deal with daily. These are evil spirit beings known as Satan and demon powers.
They would prefer that human beings deny that they
“For we wrestle not
against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers,
against the rulers of the darkness of this world, against spiritual
wickedness in high places.” (Ephesians 6:12)
Unlike the angels,
these evil spirits are interested only in hurting us. They have been
assigned to kill, steal and destroy. (John 10:10) They are interested
in one thing -- knocking true Believers in Christ right out of
commission. They do this by lying, deceiving, tempting, confusing,
discouraging and harassing.
However, there is good news! The Believer has delegated authority over all evil manifestations,
even in their greatest concentration.
“Behold, I give
unto you power to tread on serpents and scorpions [symbolic of Satan
and demon powers], and over all the power of the enemy: and nothing
shall by any means hurt you.” (Luke 10:19)
“… Resist the
devil, and he will flee from you.” (James 4:7)
Keep this one thing
in mind. Authority in the Spirit
world is a privilege reserved for Believers only.
If Jesus, the Prophet, is not yet your Redeemer,
just say, “Jesus, I choose Your Lordship.
I choose Your Authority.” (Romans 10:13)
He will empower you
and then you can boldly say, “Satan, you are released from all assignments against me and my
family. Angels, you are commissioned to bear us up and pour on the help and the blessings, in
Jesus’ Name!” (John 14:13)
