ANGELS ON ASSIGNMENT FOR THE MASTER
What a day on earth, when the secret of all ages was made known; to a young lady that found favor with God, from the foundation of the earth. The prophets prophesied about him in many ways like Isaiah did, in the book of Isaiah 7:14, “Therefore the Lord Himself shall give you a sign: Behold, a virgin shall conceive, and bear a son, and shall call his name Immanuel.” The same prophet in Isaiah 9:6 said, “ For unto us a child is born, unto us a son is given: and the government shall be upon his shoulder: and his name shall be called Wonderful, Counselor, The Mighty God, The everlasting Father, The Prince of Peace.” These were prophecies that were to come true at the appointed time. God has the master plan always with Him. There is always the appointed time; including your salvation and the Translation. That appointed time was also prophesied in 1st Thess.4:13-18. There is a set time for the dead in Christ to rise, for those who are alive and remain to all be changed and caught up together in the air, to meet the Lord Jesus Christ in the air. Also prophesied in 1st Corinth.15:51-58. After hundreds of years, the prophecies came to pass; at the appointed time, as in Matt. 1:17, “So all the generations from Abraham to David are fourteen generations; and from David until the carrying away into Babylon are fourteen generations; and from the carrying away into Babylon unto Christ are fourteen generations.” Then the angels began to arrive for the divine appointment.
God sent his archangel Gabriel to come and announce the fulfilment of the prophecies of the prophets of old. He was sent (Luke 1:26-33) to a city of Galilee, named Nazareth to a virgin espoused to a man whose name was Joseph, of the house of David; and the virgins name was Mary. And the angel said unto her, Fear not Mary: for thou hast found favor with God. And, behold thou shalt conceive in thy womb, and bring forth a son, and shalt call his name JESUS. The angel from God came and started what God in the form of man was coming to fulfill; the law and the prophets and the work of REDEMPTION.
The angels are separating and sorting out at harvest time, (Matt. 13:47-52). As they do these they are bundling the tares together for eventual burning. These tares congregate in denominations; you may be in one of them, be sure of what you believe or else you may be sorted, separated and bundled for burning. The separation is on the response and obedience to the word of God by each person; who hears the message of the gospel and claims to accept it, by coming to church gathering; mostly on Sundays. The angels have been instructed of God on what to look for in identifying and separating the tares from the wheat. One of the things the angels will look for among a group of people who claim to believe the gospel is the works of each individual. The works manifest what is inside of the person. Such works are found in Galatians 5:19-21; Rom.1:18-32 and Ephesians 5:3-12. In all these the scripture says that they which do such things shall not inherit the kingdom of God. If you are sorted out, separated and bundled; you are surely sent down for burning but you were in church. But those who make up the wheat are gathered together into the barn of the Lord. They are those led by the Holy Spirit of God and manifest the fruit of the Spirit as stated in Galatians 5:22-23 and which states that against this there is no law; they are God’s inheritance and pearl of great price. Angels gather them into God’s barn.
When Jesus was at the garden of Gethsemane, in prayer about the death that was before him (Luke 22:42-43; Mark 14:32-38), there appeared an angel unto him from heaven, strengthening him. Jesus Christ in turn said unto us, “I will never leave nor forsake thee,” (Joshua 1:5) and “I am with you always, even unto the end of the world,” (Matt. 28:20). This was to strengthen us under every circumstance that confronts us in on this earth. Also in these last days, angels are already around, guiding and encouraging the children of God in the right direction. The angel saw the deeds of Jesus Christ at the Cross. Hebrews 9:22, 25-28 reads, “And almost all things are by the law purged with blood; and without the shedding of blood is no remission. ——–,Nor yet that he should offer himself often, as the high priest entereth into the holy place every year with blood of others; For then must he often have suffered since the foundation of the world: but now once in the end of the world hath he appeared to put away sin by the sacrifice of himself. – – -, So Christ was once offered to bear the sins of many; and unto them that look for him shall he appear the second time without sin unto salvation.” Angels are also watching over the children of God. That is why the angels are involved in separating the wheats from the tares.
Angels remind the disciples that Jesus will come back Acts 1:11. As the disciples watched Jesus lifting away from them as He was taken up into the clouds, they looked in joy and in sorrow. Some may have wanted to go with Him while other stood helpless to do anything. To comfort them, two men in white apparel who were present spoke up saying, “Ye men of Galilee, why stand ye gazing up into heaven? This same Jesus, which is taken from you into heaven, shall so come in like manner as ye have seen him go into heaven.” Remember that two men in white apparel stood to testify, as Jesus ascended up into heaven. Also two men walked with Him on his visit to Abraham on the way to judge Sodom and Gomorrah, Genesis 18:1-22; and 19:1. These men in both situations are angels. Remember John 8:56, when Jesus said, “Abraham saw my days and rejoiced.” God allows angels to come in different ways and times; for sure at this end of time angels are in high gear. The Bride of Christ is coming home for the marriage supper. Are you in the bride? Are you sure? Angels as men in white apparel, standing by the disciples, saw Jesus go into heaven. Remember Matt. 24:31, “And He shall send his angels with a great sound of a trumpet, and they shall gather together his elect from the four winds, from one end of heaven to the other.” Jesus said, “Neither can they die any more: for they are equal to angels; and are the children of God, being the children of the resurrection,” (Luke 20:36). The believers are the ones.
Rev. 8, the trumpet angels presents us with a most interesting situation of angels in action. Verse 2 states, “And I saw seven angels which stood before God; and to them were given seven trumpets.” Rev. 8 verses 3-5, talks of another angel who came and stood at the altar in heaven, having a golden censer, and much incense was given unto him to offer it with the prayers of all saints (if you consider yourself a saint your prayers are there) upon the golden altar which was before the throne, (pray good prayers, so that they may be in the offering with the incense by the angel). After this offering then comes the seven angels with the trumpets of God’s judgment. Study the angel with the fifth trumpet (Rev.9:1-12) and see what angels are assigned to proclaim. This is the time to take heed to the admonitions of our Lord Jesus Christ in Luke 21:36, “Watch ye therefore, and pray always, that ye may be accounted worthy to escape all these things that shall come to pass, and to stand before the Son of man.”
Rev. 15:5-8, the angels bearing the vials appear. Verses 7 and 8 state, “And one of the four beasts gave unto the seven angels, seven golden vials full of the wrath of God, who liveth forever and ever. And the temple was filled with smoke from the glory of God, and from his power; and no man was able to enter into the temple, till the seven plagues of the seven angels were fulfilled.” This is deep into the great tribulation last 42 months period. One of the angel poured out the wrath of God (this does not sound like John 3:16, because after love comes also judgment and this is God’s judgment) on the people left on the earth. Rev. 16:2, tells of the first vial poured out by the first angel, “And the first went, and poured out his vial upon the earth; and there fell a noisome and grievous sore upon the men which had the mark of the beast, and upon them which worshiped his image.” This is the first vial for those left behind and who voted for the antichrist system against the admonitions of God to mankind. When the sixth vial was poured out, the great river Euphrates dried up and the three unclean spirits like frogs, came out of the mouths of the dragon, the beast and the false prophets which are spirits of devil: And he gathered them together for the Armageddon destructive judgment by God. Many who reject Christ today and are left behind should prepare to march down for the third Woe, if they survive the first two woes. Why do you wish anyone such including wishing yourself such by the kind of relationship you have with Jesus Christ today. In spite of these grim revelations of what is coming; Jesus Christ because of his love repeated this resounding scripture in Rev.16:15,”Behold, I come as a thief. Blessed is he that watcheth, and keepeth his garments, lest he walk naked, and they see his shame.” Angels are at work.
The angels are always around the earth especially where so ever children of God, true believers are; whether at home or out of the home. Angels are watching over the elect. As far as humans are concerned angels are critically important at the birth of a believer, when they repent of their sins, get converted and accept Jesus Christ as Lord and Savior. According to Luke 15:7, “There is joy in heaven over one sinner that repenteth.” The day you were saved there was joy in heaven over your return to life from death; the sting of death was removed for you at that point by Jesus Christ, (1st Corinth. 15:56). Also angels come for the believer at death, according to Luke 16:22. Furthermore Psalms 116:15 reads, “Precious in the sight of the Lord is the death of his saints.” If this is precious in the sight of the Lord then imagine how the angels would feel when a believer comes home to the Lord. Paul said in Philippians 1:21-24, “For me to live is Christ, and to die is gain; – – – For I am in a strait betwixt two, having a desire to depart, and to be with Christ which is better.”
It is wonderful to know that our partners in this our journey through the earth are angels. They rejoice when we are saved, they come when we die, they come to gather us in the four corners of heaven. They help in carrying out God’s judgment. But most important at this harvest time is that we are working side by side with the angels. We are giving out the gospel word and they are separating the harvest. Some reject the gospel word other start denying it and the all are bundled (tares) by the angels for burning while the angels also gather the wheat (the true believers) into the Lord’s barn.
Soberly, think your life over. Are you really born again? Are you sure you are saved, because it is getting late? If you are saved look up for your redemption draweth near, according to Luke 21:28… If you are not sure you are saved and you want to make it to heaven and be with our Lord Jesus Christ: And also be with the other saints and angels and escape the wrath of God; then repent. Acknowledge that you are a sinner ask God for forgiveness on your knees. Ask him to wash your sins away with his blood shed on the Cross of Calvary. Ask Jesus Christ to come into your life and be your Savior and Lord. Find and attend a small bible believing church, start reading the King James version of the bible; from the book of John and then to Proverbs. Get baptized by immersion in the Name of Jesus Christ. Ask the Lord to also baptize you with the Holy Ghost, by which you are sealed until they day of redemption, (translation moment). And we shall meet again with the angels in the air and around the throne as we all worship and praise the Lord for He is worthy to receive all glory. Study Rev.5:13, “And every creature which is in heaven, and on sthe earth, and under the earth, and such as are in the sea, and all that are in them, heard I saying, Blessing, and honor, and glory, and power, be unto him that sitteth upon the throne, and unto the Lamb forever.” Don’t’ forget, Jesus said, “I Jesus have sent mine angel to testify unto you these things in the churches. I am the root and the offspring of David, and the bright and morning star, (Rev. 22:16).
