Holy Angels and the Demonic

Hello everyone. I pray you had a great weekend and enjoying your Sunday. I'd like to start off by asking for a moment of silence for the victims in yet another shooting. Killed 5 law enforcement officers and injured others too. I think even citizens were killed or injured too. It's so depressing I didn't watch too much of the coverage on the news. Orlando is still in fear after the mass shooting here. They will continue with the attacks until a huge one is done. "America doesn't fight back" as someone in another country mentioned. They have no fear of us at all.

What Are Holy Angels?

These holy Angels who are truly sinless spiritual beings, whom the Lord of the Bible calls “morning stars,” or “angels,” live in heaven with The Lord. The Bible speaks of only one archangel, Michael, and we suppose that Gabriel is the ‘chief’ or ‘commander’ of all the messenger angels.  Besides God Himself, angels are the most powerful beings in the universe; intelligent and free-willed entities of the highest rank in God’s creation, but they are not God, and thus, angels cannot create anything.  All the holy angels of God were created to worship God Alone.  As His supernatural servants, the holy angels of God execute His power and His authority on earth according to His will alone, (Heb. 1:6-7; 14.)

What Do Angels Do?

God has had angels specifically assigned to supervise and protect his Church throughout all of its history (Revelations 1:4, 16, 20; 2:1, 8, 12, 18; 3:1, 7, 14). He has angels who are to always walk through the earth to watch and report back to him the overall conditions on earth (Zech 4:10; II Chron 16:9; Revelations 5:6). And God has angels specifically assigned to look after his begotten human children (Matthew 18:10 Acts 12:15). God promises: “For he shall give his angels charge over thee, to keep thee in all thy ways (Psalms 91:11).” Angels are Good spirits that can manifest them self into a physical body. Good spirits linked to The Holy Spirit always speak the truth. Angels are everywhere my friends. God has us under protection.

We are not to worship Angels

We are to honor them but not worship them. Only God is to be worshipped. I feel the same about the Virgin Mary. Too many claim to be guided by "spirit guides". Are they really sure? How do they know they are not being deceived by a demonic spirit? They are taking a big chance when they don't have much experience in this.

What Are Demons?

Demons are evil/fallen angels who follow Satan and turned on God.  When Lucifer/Satan fell out of heaven, the demons fell with him instead of staying in their place as God's ministers of good. Somehow, evil was found in them (Ezekiel 28:15). A description of the fall of Satan and his demons can be found in Revelation 12:9, which says "And the great dragon was thrown down, that ancient serpent, who is called the devil and Satan, the deceiver of the whole world—he was thrown down to the earth, and his angels were thrown down with him." Satan's fall is also shown, symbolically, in Isaiah 14:12-15 and Ezekiel 28:12-15.

There  are several ways by which demons hurt, torment and oppresses people. Afflict: To  something hard to endure. Harass: To annoy or disturb persistently, to wear out by frequent attacks. Influence: To exercise indirect power over in order to sway or affect. Oppress: To lower in spirit or mood. Torment: To cause severe suffering of body or mind. Torture: To punish or coerce by inflicting excruciating pain. Worry: To disturb one or destroy one’s peace of mind by repeated or persistent torment. Wrong: To inflict injury on another without justification.

A Demon can keep you in chains and isolate you by attacking the mind. That is the devils playground. But God has the final say and power to end it all. Rev 20:10 and the devil who deceived them, was thrown into the lake of burning sulfur, where the beast and the false prophet had been thrown. They will be tormented day and night forever and ever. Demons are not God but sometimes they become the object of worship. Behind every idol, there is a demon or an evil spirit.  Sometimes we cherish certain beliefs which are not true.  This can become a form of idolatry. 

Gods Angels Are Invisible

In Job 38:4, 7, God is speaking specifically of the creation of earth. He says all the angels shouted for joy at the creation of the earth. This shows us that angels were created before the creation of the earth and probably before the material universe. The suns, planets and astral bodies are material substances. Angels are individually created spirit beings, composed solely of spirit.

Always remember that for every evil force attempting to take us done we have Angels of The Lord as well there protecting us. Yes, we have free will but we are protected to a certain degree even if we inadvertently created trouble. Satan has a counterfeit of everything the Lord does and have. As long as we ask the Lord to send his angels to protect us go  I have said before you don't want to tick a angel off and neither do the demons. angels of the Lord are very, very powerful. They are terrified of Christ. Keep God Close to your heart and a personal relationship with him instead of just going to him when we need something and I think you might be surprised of the favor you might receive in life and little circumstances
