Angels are being seen in increasing measure these days, yet they certainly are not a new thing to God's economy. With the sheer number of angelic mentions in the bible, it’s worth taking a closer look at what He has to say about them is warranted. I’d like to open up a few scriptures with you today.
“Continue on loving one another as brothers and sisters. Do not forget to show hospitality to strangers, for by so doing some people have shown hospitality to angels without knowing it.” (Hebrews 13: 1-2, NIV)
As I said earlier, angels are being seen in increasing measure. You may have brushed that aside and thought, Not with me. However, it’s possible that you have shown hospitality to an angel without even knowing it. Angels can be present with us as we go about our daily business.
If there’s anyone we should desire to gain understanding from about angels, it’s Jesus. Let's go to Matthew 18, verse 10 where He speaks of angels.
Listen to what Jesus says:
“See that you don't despise one of these little ones. For I tell you that their angels in heaven always see the face of my Father in heaven.” (Matthew 18:10, NIV)
This is Jesus talking. He's talking about the children. And frankly, we are all children of God. You have angels (plural!) who behold the face of God who assigned them to you.
Recently, I sensed an angelic visitation in the early hours of the night. As I awoke, I saw one jar after another on a shelf, and angels were showing me all these particular jars. I asked what they represented, and was told that they were parts of humanity that needed to be released into the living water for refreshing and impartation of life.
The next thing I knew, I was taken to a river where I watched as the angels poured the jars into the River of Life. The river was effervescent and overflowing with oxygen. It was translucent and bubbling over with life. As the oxygen overflowed, the river transcended into the blood and I was aware I was looking at the bloodstream of humanity in it’s fullness, as it was meant to be - the breath of life and the fullness of Godly governance flowing into the physical and spiritual “Body of Christ”, able to fully function and impact all of creation.
I sensed this was from the Lord when I awoke. I had - and continue to have - a deep, deep impression in my heart of how the Lord was showing me a picture of His heart for His children. Those who are in need of being released can become all He originally intended for them. God’s living waters are ever present and available to bring a Holy cleansing to all who ask. Let's not neglect the hospitality of those unusual occurrences, as we may be entertaining angels with a message for us!
