Day 49 - Angels in Combat

Dear Contending Ones,

It’s day 49, the last day of the 7 weeks of counting the omer - Feast of Weeks. Tomorrow is Pentecost - Day 50!

I want to close with this statement.“Angels are more than invisible guardians of the Heavens - they are fierce soldiers commissioned to overthrow the powers of darkness.” - Tim Sheets, Angel Armies, 2016

Judgement Made In Favor of the Saints

For  by  Him  all  things  were  created  that  are  in  heaven  and  that  are  on  earth,  visible  and  invisible,  whether  thrones  or  dominions  or  principalities  or  powers.  All  things  were  created  through  Him  and  for  Him.  And  He  is  before  all  things,  and  in  Him  all  things  consist.  -  Colossians  1:16  -17  

Daniel’s Vision of the Throne

Myriads of Angels

Daniel 7:9-27  9 "I watched till thrones were put in place, And the Ancient of Days was seated; His garment was white as snow, And the hair of His head was like pure wool. His throne was a fiery flame, Its wheels a burning fire; 10 A fiery stream issued And came forth from before Him. A thousand thousands ministered to Him; Ten thousand times ten thousand stood before Him. The court was seated, And the books were opened. 

11"I watched then because of the sound of the pompous words which the horn was speaking; I watched till the beast was slain, and its body destroyed and given to the burning flame.

Son of Man Given Dominion 

13 "I was watching in the night visions, And behold, One like the Son of Man, Coming with the clouds of heaven! He came to the Ancient of Days, And they brought Him near before Him. 14 Then to Him was given dominion and glory and a kingdom, That all peoples, nations, and languages should serve Him. His dominion is an everlasting dominion, Which shall not pass away, And His kingdom the one Which shall not be destroyed.

Saints Shall Receive the Kingdom

18 But the saints of the Most High shall receive the kingdom, and possess the kingdom forever, even forever and ever.’

21  I was watching; and the same horn (beast, dragon) was making war against the saints, and prevailing against them.

Ancient of Days 

22 until the Ancient of Days came, and a judgment was made in favor of the saints of the Most High, and the time came for the saints to possess the kingdom.

Horn Persecutes the Saints

Seeks to Change Time & Laws

25…He (the beast, dragon) shall speak pompous words against the Most High, Shall persecute the saints of the Most High, And shall intend to change times and law. Then the saints shall be given into his hand For a time and times and half a time.

Angels Wage War - Combat the Dragon (horn, beast, satan the devil)

Revelation 12:7-10 7And war broke out in heaven: Michael and his angels fought with the dragon; and the dragon and his angels fought, 8 but they did not prevail, nor was a place found for them in heaven any longer.

9 So the great dragon was cast out, that serpent of old, called the Devil and Satan, who deceives the whole world; he was cast to the earth, and his angels were cast out with him.

10 Then I heard a loud voice saying in heaven, "Now salvation, and strength, and the kingdom of our God, and the power of His Christ have come, for the accuser of our brethren, who accused them before our God day and night, has been cast down.

“Michael and his angels fought against the dragon and his angels and won. Assisting us are angels who are more powerful than Lucifer and his angels. Lucifer and his angels fought, but they didn’t win. Angels fight for God’s people and His purpose. They are victorious warriors. Angels can fight spiritual battles for us in the heavenlies when it’s necessary. Whether the fight is over a nation, region, town, or cultural condition, angers can help us fight in the natural realm or the spiritual.” - Angel Armies, Pg. 144

Court Was Seated - Kingdom of God Given to the Saints

26  'But the court shall be seated, And they shall take away his dominion, To consume and destroy it forever.

27 Then the kingdom and dominion, And the greatness of the kingdoms under the whole heaven, Shall be given to the people, the saints of the Most High. His kingdom is an everlasting kingdom, And all dominions shall serve and obey Him.'

Revelation 12:11 And they overcame him by the blood of the Lamb and by the word of their testimony, and they did not love their lives to the death.

Do Not Fear - Angels are with You!

2 Kings 6:16-17 16 So he answered, "Do not fear, for those who are with us are more than those who are with them.” 17And Elisha prayed, and said, "LORD, I pray, open his eyes that he may see." Then the LORD opened the eyes of the young man, and he saw. And behold, the mountain was full of horses and chariots of fire  (angelic host) all around Elisha.

Word of the Lord

There are more angels with you than there are demonic spirits against you, says the Lord. As it says in 2 Kings 6, “Do not fear, for those who are with us are more than those who are with them.” Angels are at the ready, waiting to hear your voices release them to act on your behalf. The angels waged war with Lucifer and his angels so you could possess the kingdom.  The enemy stills speaks pompous words against My people to wear them down and try to take them out BUT you have already been given the VICTORY! Release the angels to fight for you and with you against the Dragon and his demons…My SON PAID THE PRICE and WON THE VICTORY! Now partner with the Spirit and with the angelic host to enforce His Victory - HERE ON EARTH! Says, the Spirit of God.

Open  our  eyes,  Lord!    

Open my eyes, so I may behold wonders from Your Torah.- Psalms  119:18 (TLV)

What  does  the  Bible  say?

Read: Ponder the passages above…let the Spirit give you an understanding of what has been done for you!

Action: Thank the Lord for the angelic host. Ask Holy Spirit to continue enlightening you as to the work of angels and to give you a greater understanding on how to release them in the affairs of men. 

Continue to cry out for Holy Spirit boldness, empowerment, innovation, and an apostolic spirit to move into this new era of divine movement / outpouring!

Decree: We, the remnant church, will declare what God says. Angels will hear it and together we will fight and win. Amen! - Angel Armies, Pg. 212
