In our class this week there was a question on angels and if we can command them… Here are some verses to help.
Dan 10:12 Then he said to me, “Do not fear, Daniel, for from the first day that you set your heart to understand, and to humble yourself before your God, your words were heard; and I have come because of your words. 13: But the prince of the kingdom of Persia withstood me twenty-one days; and behold, Michael, one of the chief princes, came to help me, for I had been left alone there with the kings of Persia.
Notice: that it was Daniels words that the angels heard and heeded!
Heb 1:13 But to which of the angels has He ever said: “Sit at My right hand, Till I make Your enemies Your footstool”? 14: Are they not all ministering spirits sent forth to minister for those who will inherit salvation?
Notice: The ministering spirits/angels are sent to minister for “the heirs of salvation”….that is us through Christ Jesus.
Psa 103:20 Bless the Lord, you His angels, Who excel in strength, who do His word, Heeding the voice of His word.
Notice: when we speak his word the angels must harken unto it and as we are IN “The Word” Jesus they will do as we ask when it lines up with Gods purpose for us in this life (Restoration/bringing order to chaos is whatever arena we were called to).
Command your angels….they are waiting to be our hands and feet in the Spirit Realm as they did for Daniel and as we are Gods hands and feet in this Physical Realm.
Heb 1:4 Being made so much better than the angels, as he hath by inheritance obtained a more excellent name than they.
Notice: the word “better” in this case is from the Greek word Kreitton meaning- stronger/Best/Nobler….this is our position in The Kingdom of God in Christ Jesus!
1Co 6:3 Know ye not that we shall judge angels? how much more things that pertain to this life?
Notice: the word “Judge” in the Greek is Krino which means to decide/condemn/punish……we will do this at the appointed time.
WE can decide that angels are superior or better than us and be in awe of them but even they always said in the bible “Stand…do not bow to me as I serve like you serve”….In our journey of learning how to walk as a “Son of God” lets utilize every biblical tool we have been given for Gods Glory on this earth.
