Angels... what's not to love?The wings on God's beloved angels are not only used to fly. Those who have them for flying do fly with them, but those holy wings are also used to "cover" and protect. Also, their feathers impart JOY to believers...
Hello, and WELCOME to another installment of "Beyond the Veil: Encounters in Vision", where we will glory in the Lord's illuminating glimpses of the realms of His power graciously imparted to us. The visions the Lord has imparted to me concerning the activities of His angelic host over the years have focused me and delivered my mind from preoccupation with earthly things. He has healed me through the seer gifting and through allowing me to grow in the understanding of what it is to be designated as a Seer in His Kingdom.
Today, my thanks is going forth to God for His beloved angelic host - the creatures with whom I am becoming increasingly acquainted as I draw nearer to God's Heart - and their protection of me and all of God's children from our birth right up to this moment, including supernatural protection during Hurricane Sandy.
The first time I recall being truly impacted by the sight of an angel's wings was during church service at Jehovah Shammah when its home was still in New Jersey. It was one of the first times we "ascended" as a group to the Heavenly realm, which required dimensional travel. To keep us safe and properly escorted through the second heaven (where there is demonic activity), angels of dimensional travel were assigned to our ascent. One of the beings particularly caught my attention as he lifted what seemed to be a transparent, holy bubble - containing us all during worship - upward out of earth's atmosphere. We rose up, in the mighty angel's hands, through the roof to the outside and up into the sky!
This angel was for sure... meaning he was no joke, baby. His arms were double the size of oak tree trunks, and his body was long, thick, and sturdy like a steel building; he was at least 25 feet tall. But for me, the coolest thing about him was his wings! Their span was easily 60 feet, tip to tip, and they were connected to a base sticking up from the angel's backbone as thick as a telephone pole. So, picture the angel laying horizontally, like superman, but with a four-foot pole sticking out of his back (it literally was part of his backbone), and then these HUGE, fully-formed, gorgeously powerful wings extended from that pole flapping mightily to propel the giant being!
With every thrust of his wings the universe shook! It was like the sonic boom of the sound barrier breaking a thousand times as he enabled our flight from earth to Heaven with incredible breadths of wingspan penetrating the layered atmosphere by the Holy command of God. Yes, indeed... ALL THIS GOES ON in the spirit realm as the saints worship and praise God with whole hearts designated and concentrated upon Him.
The angel wore simple garments; a tunic which appeared white at first and then pink as he lifted us to his holy destination. His hair was fashioned simply, in what beauticians of old called the Pageboy style, surrounding his face; and his eyes were fixed on the bubble he was lifting, full of the saints, united and precious to God - and he knew this, I sensed it from him strongly as he concentrated on fulfilling his task before Abba. The sight of him marked me forever - a privilege I count as one of the greatest in my life.
Daddy regards the obedience of His Holy Angels as priceless and precious before His Throne. We are indeed the Redeemed and blood-bought members of His Royal Family, but make no mistake, my friends, He LOVES His Angels. He prizes their obedience and loyalty and talents as fine gems, costly and clean (pure)... beloved in His sight.
During Hurricane Sandy the angels were at work triple and quadruple-time on our behalf. Holy Spirit enabled me to see and hear Abba's Holy Edict before the storm that "My Beloved will be kept safe." And I saw the holy angels leave their stations up above to take their places and positions on earth, designated both by Abba and by the Redeemed on earth He had asked to pray. (Our Pastor, Apostle Nancy Snyder, was one of those God Himself directed to commission and position His angelic host in various avenues and outposts of protection wherever they were needed during the storm. I thank God for her obedience and the obedience of all the saints who were so directed!)
During the storm I saw ministering spirits linking arm-in-arm at some points, and hand-in-hand at others. They were circling trees with God's whirlwinds of protection and literally holding others in place by Abba's power; the same goes for telephone poles and power lines. And if some trees and poles fell, they did not destroy the homes of God's beloved, nor did they crush the Redeemed.
Angels held back and/or redirected rushing water that would have normally flooded area basements beyond capacity; God's hand protected power lines around my home from the battering 85-mph winds Sandy packed when she came ashore in New Jersey (I saw His Arm, literally, from elbow to fingertip shield trees with branches entangled in power lines in front of my house), and a little angel named Caleb maintained his post in my bedroom, putting a "Glory Marker" in the window, alerting his fellow angels to a place where they could rest and be restored for further battle.
Isn't that a w e s o m e?!!!
Now, please know that I am not saying you're not a child of God if you or your God-fearing family suffered deaths or sustained significant damage from the storm; far be it from me and, if that's the case, my heartfelt prayers are with you, sincerely. What I am saying, however, is the power of God was unleashed in a specific and mighty way to protect His beloved supernaturally during that horrific weather event and, for that, I wholeheartedly give Him PRAISE! Moreover, I praise and thank Him for the faithful obedience of His Precious Angelic Host.
I also must note that the praise and worship music I play continually in my home was of critical aid to the angels, such that the Lord would not allow me even to lower its volume during the height of the squall. "The angels need it," He told me. See how important it is that we remain in the Spirit all day and night in our homes and everyday lives? It gives SUCH assistance to the ministering and warring angels who are on duty in cooperation with Holy Spirit guarding and protecting our lives and property every moment. Frankly, I consider it an honor to aid - even in a small way - those Heavenly creatures who have comforted, aided, and protected me by Abba's guidance and power every day of my life!
And then they take their rest. When they are finished with such staggering assignments, they replenish themselves by drinking from Abba's cup of refreshment made especially for them, and they laugh and rejoice in Him to receive strength - renewed strength - to face another battle. They "pass through" one another in fellowship and thanksgiving for teamwork and mutual devotion to the Lord... they are a powerful, happy, and joy-filled folk from whom we all can learn when it comes to grateful consistency and humble allegiance to the Lord.
"Above (the Throne) stood seraphim; each one had six wings; with two he covered his face, with two he covered his feet, and with two he flew. And one cried to another and said, Holy, holy, holy is the Lord of Hosts; the whole earth is full of His glory!" (Isaiah 6:2-3)
God's Holy Angels... what's not to love?
Smiling in Jesus,
"... fervent in spirit, serving the Lord."
