  • Creflo: Tonight, I wanna spendsome time talking about angels.
  • 00:01:48.755 --> 00:01:52.058
  • I don't know if you have a hardtime believing in angels or not,
  • 00:01:52.058 --> 00:01:55.628
  • but they're--it's in the Bibleand also it's in Psalms 91 and I
  • 00:01:55.628 --> 00:02:00.500
  • like to begin there, inPsalms 91, verses 10 through 12.
  • 00:02:00.500 --> 00:02:05.338
  • We're gonna talk aboutangelic provision for
  • 00:02:05.338 --> 00:02:09.008
  • covenant longevity.
  • 00:02:09.008 --> 00:02:11.110
  • Angelic provision forcovenant longevity.
  • 00:02:11.110 --> 00:02:17.150
  • Psalms 91, verse 10, let's readthat in the King James, verses
  • 00:02:17.150 --> 00:02:20.653
  • 10 and--through 12.
  • 00:02:20.653 --> 00:02:23.890
  • He says, "There shall no evilbefall thee, neither shall any
  • 00:02:23.890 --> 00:02:27.193
  • plague come nigh thy dwelling.
  • 00:02:27.193 --> 00:02:29.762
  • For he shall give his angelscharge over thee, and they will
  • 00:02:29.762 --> 00:02:34.834
  • keep thee in all thyways," that's powerful.
  • 00:02:34.834 --> 00:02:38.371
  • "And they shall bear thee up intheir hands, lest thou dash thy
  • 00:02:38.371 --> 00:02:42.942
  • foot against a stone."
  • 00:02:42.942 --> 00:02:44.677
  • Now let's read that out of theNew Living Translation because
  • 00:02:44.677 --> 00:02:48.081
  • this is something youhave to hold on to.
  • 00:02:48.081 --> 00:02:50.383
  • This is something that I had apersonal experience with when I
  • 00:02:50.383 --> 00:02:54.187
  • had a very bad accidentin Sacramento, California,
  • 00:02:54.187 --> 00:02:58.057
  • about 20 years ago.
  • 00:02:58.057 --> 00:03:00.059
  • And this Scripture came alive.
  • 00:03:00.059 --> 00:03:02.829
  • He says, "No evil willconquer you; no plague will
  • 00:03:02.829 --> 00:03:05.932
  • come near your home."
  • 00:03:05.932 --> 00:03:08.468
  • Verse 11, he says, "Forhe will order his angels
  • 00:03:08.468 --> 00:03:12.372
  • to protect you wherever you go."
  • 00:03:12.372 --> 00:03:14.974
  • So angels are under orders toprotect you wherever you go.
  • 00:03:14.974 --> 00:03:21.614
  • "They will hold you up withtheir hands so you won't even
  • 00:03:21.614 --> 00:03:25.551
  • hurt your foot on a stone."
  • 00:03:25.551 --> 00:03:27.854
  • Now, that's a powerful promise.
  • 00:03:27.854 --> 00:03:29.455
  • You know, angels are God'sagents for our preservation.
  • 00:03:29.455 --> 00:03:34.827
  • God's angels are agents for ourdefense and for our security.
  • 00:03:34.827 --> 00:03:42.368
  • They are there to ward off allevil and devour all plagues.
  • 00:03:42.368 --> 00:03:48.908
  • They are messengers of destiny.
  • 00:03:48.908 --> 00:03:52.812
  • Their job is to bringyou out of every danger.
  • 00:03:52.812 --> 00:03:56.749
  • Angelic provision is yourcovenant heritage, so let's take
  • 00:03:56.749 --> 00:04:02.588
  • advantage of it.
  • 00:04:02.588 --> 00:04:04.190
  • Angelic provision isyour covenant heritage.
  • 00:04:04.190 --> 00:04:09.529
  • It's your covenant heritage,so let's take advantage of it.
  • 00:04:09.529 --> 00:04:13.533
  • Some of you haveangels and they ain't--
  • 00:04:13.533 --> 00:04:15.802
  • they've not done anything.
  • 00:04:15.802 --> 00:04:17.203
  • I mean, they're tired,dusty and--it's time for
  • 00:04:17.203 --> 00:04:19.706
  • you to understand thatthis is your heritage.
  • 00:04:19.706 --> 00:04:24.277
  • Angelic provisionis your heritage.
  • 00:04:24.277 --> 00:04:28.448
  • Angelic provision forlongevity is your heritage.
  • 00:04:28.448 --> 00:04:34.187
  • You know, in Genesis48:15 through 16,
  • 00:04:34.187 --> 00:04:38.324
  • let's look at that realquick, it's talking about
  • 00:04:38.324 --> 00:04:40.193
  • Jacob and how Jacoblived 147 years, but
  • 00:04:40.193 --> 00:04:43.830
  • notice this: "And he blessedJoseph, and said, God, before
  • 00:04:43.830 --> 00:04:49.235
  • whom my fathers Abraham andIsaac did walk, the God which
  • 00:04:49.235 --> 00:04:53.439
  • fed me all my life longunto this day, The Angel which
  • 00:04:53.439 --> 00:04:59.679
  • redeemed me from all evil."
  • 00:04:59.679 --> 00:05:02.215
  • Check that out.
  • 00:05:02.215 --> 00:05:03.816
  • The angel, Joseph's talkingabout "The Angel which redeemed
  • 00:05:03.816 --> 00:05:06.853
  • me from all evil, bless thelads; and let my name be named
  • 00:05:06.853 --> 00:05:12.892
  • on them, and the name of myfathers Abraham and Isaac; and
  • 00:05:12.892 --> 00:05:16.896
  • let them grow into a multitudein the midst of the earth."
  • 00:05:16.896 --> 00:05:22.468
  • It's a powerful, powerfulthing, powerful thing.
  • 00:05:22.468 --> 00:05:25.505
  • And Jacob lived 147 years.
  • 00:05:25.505 --> 00:05:27.140
  • Now, angels are designedto preserve destinies.
  • 00:05:27.140 --> 00:05:35.314
  • Angels are designedto preserve destinies.
  • 00:05:36.282 --> 00:05:42.155
  • Let's look at someScripture on this.
  • 00:05:42.155 --> 00:05:43.723
  • Exodus 23 and 20.
  • 00:05:43.723 --> 00:05:45.858
  • Designed to preserve destinies.
  • 00:05:45.858 --> 00:05:49.328
  • Verse 20: "Behold, I send anAngel before thee," to what?
  • 00:05:49.328 --> 00:05:53.766
  • "To keep thee in the way, andto bring thee into the place
  • 00:05:53.766 --> 00:05:59.772
  • which I have prepared,"that's powerful.
  • 00:05:59.772 --> 00:06:02.575
  • You see the assignment here,to keep you in the way, and to
  • 00:06:02.575 --> 00:06:06.179
  • bring you into the placewhich I have prepared for thee.
  • 00:06:06.179 --> 00:06:09.749
  • Angels preserve destinies.
  • 00:06:09.749 --> 00:06:13.186
  • I'm telling you, I can't explainthe intricate detail, but I know
  • 00:06:13.186 --> 00:06:17.023
  • that their assignment from Godis to keep you in the way, to
  • 00:06:17.023 --> 00:06:21.561
  • keep you in the way, and topreserve and bring you to that
  • 00:06:21.561 --> 00:06:25.498
  • place which God hasprepared for you.
  • 00:06:25.498 --> 00:06:27.934
  • Here's the good news, iswhatever place God has prepared
  • 00:06:27.934 --> 00:06:30.470
  • for you, I believe with the helpof the angels, you are going to
  • 00:06:30.470 --> 00:06:33.940
  • arrive at that perfect place.
  • 00:06:33.940 --> 00:06:36.742
  • Look at Daniel chapter3, verses 23 and 28.
  • 00:06:36.742 --> 00:06:41.247
  • Daniel chapter 3,verse 23 and 28.
  • 00:06:41.247 --> 00:06:44.417
  • He says, "And these threemen, Shadrach, Meshach,
  • 00:06:44.417 --> 00:06:48.855
  • and Abed-nego, they fell downinto the midst of the burning
  • 00:06:48.855 --> 00:06:53.659
  • fiery furnace,"but what happened?
  • 00:06:53.659 --> 00:06:56.329
  • Verse 28: "Then Nebuchadnezzarspake, and said, Blessed be the
  • 00:06:56.329 --> 00:07:01.534
  • God of Shadrach, Meshach,and Abed-nego, who has sent his
  • 00:07:01.534 --> 00:07:06.606
  • angel, and delivered hisservants that trusted in him."
  • 00:07:06.606 --> 00:07:12.178
  • So here, in Shadrach, Meshach,and Abed-nego, even though that
  • 00:07:12.178 --> 00:07:16.182
  • they tried to kill him andburn him and put him in a fiery
  • 00:07:16.182 --> 00:07:18.518
  • furnace, he had to giveprops to God, if you will.
  • 00:07:18.518 --> 00:07:23.389
  • And he had to say somethings to God that, "Hey, God,
  • 00:07:23.389 --> 00:07:26.826
  • look at what you've done,you're awesome.
  • 00:07:26.826 --> 00:07:29.061
  • I'm gonna give--I'mgonna give notice to him."
  • 00:07:29.061 --> 00:07:31.531
  • And look what he says, verse 28,continue: "And have changed the
  • 00:07:31.531 --> 00:07:35.902
  • king's words, and yielded theirbodies, that they might not
  • 00:07:35.902 --> 00:07:40.306
  • serve nor worship anygod, except their own God."
  • 00:07:40.306 --> 00:07:44.610
  • I believe that the angels ofGod are about to operate in this
  • 00:07:44.610 --> 00:07:48.381
  • earth to such a point that it'sgonna change people's words as
  • 00:07:48.381 --> 00:07:52.285
  • long--as well aschange their minds.
  • 00:07:52.285 --> 00:07:55.054
  • Please understand thatangels preserve destinies.
  • 00:07:55.054 --> 00:07:59.559
  • In all the things that are goingon right now, you're about to
  • 00:07:59.559 --> 00:08:02.261
  • see a strong manifestationof angels doing just that.
  • 00:08:02.261 --> 00:08:08.834
  • You are going to reach the placethat God has called you to.
  • 00:08:08.834 --> 00:08:13.940
  • Look at Daniel chapter 6,verse 16 and then 19 through 22:
  • 00:08:13.940 --> 00:08:20.580
  • "Then the king commanded, andthey brought Daniel, and they
  • 00:08:20.580 --> 00:08:24.116
  • cast him into the den of lions.
  • 00:08:24.116 --> 00:08:26.986
  • Now the king spake and saidunto Daniel, Thy God whom thou
  • 00:08:26.986 --> 00:08:31.457
  • serveth continually,he will deliver thee."
  • 00:08:31.457 --> 00:08:35.528
  • Now, I'm sure he was kind ofmocking Daniel at this point,
  • 00:08:35.528 --> 00:08:39.565
  • but look at verse 19 through 22:"Then the king arose very early
  • 00:08:39.565 --> 00:08:45.171
  • in the morning, and went inhaste unto the den of lions.
  • 00:08:45.171 --> 00:08:50.776
  • And when he came to the den, hecried with a--with lamentable
  • 00:08:50.776 --> 00:08:55.481
  • voice unto Daniel: and theking spake and said to Daniel,
  • 00:08:55.481 --> 00:08:59.652
  • O Daniel, servant of the livingGod, is thy God, whom thou
  • 00:08:59.652 --> 00:09:03.923
  • serveth continually, able todeliver thee from the lions?"
  • 00:09:03.923 --> 00:09:09.261
  • Verse 21: "Then said Daniel untothe king, O king, live for ever.
  • 00:09:09.261 --> 00:09:15.368
  • My God has sent his angel, andhas shut the mouths--the lions'
  • 00:09:15.368 --> 00:09:20.573
  • mouth, and they have not hurtme: forasmuch as before him
  • 00:09:20.573 --> 00:09:24.644
  • innocency was found in me;and also before thee, O king,
  • 00:09:24.644 --> 00:09:28.948
  • have I done no hurt."
  • 00:09:28.948 --> 00:09:31.517
  • And so you can see here thatangels were sent to the rescue,
  • 00:09:31.517 --> 00:09:36.956
  • that in a time and in the midstof trouble, even unto death,
  • 00:09:36.956 --> 00:09:40.926
  • angels are sent to the rescue.
  • 00:09:40.926 --> 00:09:43.696
  • You know, I can remember veryclearly in the midst of my life
  • 00:09:43.696 --> 00:09:47.466
  • 20 years ago when that accidenthappened in Sacramento, I saw
  • 00:09:47.466 --> 00:09:51.704
  • the angels that God had sent.
  • 00:09:51.704 --> 00:09:53.639
  • Now you think whatever youwanna think, I know what I saw.
  • 00:09:53.639 --> 00:09:56.208
  • Went past my face, andthose angels were sent,
  • 00:09:56.208 --> 00:09:59.612
  • those angels weresent to rescue.
  • 00:09:59.612 --> 00:10:03.015
  • There are angels thatwill be sent to rescue,
  • 00:10:03.015 --> 00:10:05.818
  • and in that time, when my lifewas on the line, it was not time
  • 00:10:05.818 --> 00:10:09.755
  • for me to go at that time.
  • 00:10:09.755 --> 00:10:11.657
  • I hadn't starteda New York church.
  • 00:10:11.657 --> 00:10:13.459
  • There are lots of things that Ihadn't done, hadn't started it,
  • 00:10:13.459 --> 00:10:16.862
  • and in the midst of destruction,in the midst of my life being on
  • 00:10:16.862 --> 00:10:21.000
  • the line, I can bear witness towhat Daniel's testifying here.
  • 00:10:21.000 --> 00:10:24.870
  • God sent hisangels to rescue me.
  • 00:10:24.870 --> 00:10:28.741
  • And I'm telling you, whenevertrouble comes your way, if you
  • 00:10:28.741 --> 00:10:32.344
  • will begin to release your faithand begin to even hear what I'm
  • 00:10:32.344 --> 00:10:35.481
  • saying, God will sendhis angels to rescue you.
  • 00:10:35.481 --> 00:10:39.385
  • Even when the devil's trying toshorten your life, when you know
  • 00:10:39.385 --> 00:10:42.088
  • you have a right to longlife, angelic provision for your
  • 00:10:42.088 --> 00:10:45.891
  • longevity is at hand.
  • 00:10:45.891 --> 00:10:49.595
  • Look at Acts chapter12, verses 5 through 11.
  • 00:10:49.595 --> 00:10:53.499
  • And I know in this series, I'mbringing notice to all these
  • 00:10:53.499 --> 00:10:56.836
  • things through Scriptures thatsometimes we just read over, but
  • 00:10:56.836 --> 00:11:00.005
  • we're just taking acloser look at this.
  • 00:11:00.005 --> 00:11:02.842
  • Exodus--what'd I say?
  • 00:11:02.842 --> 00:11:04.610
  • Acts chapter 5, verse 5through 11: "Peter therefore
  • 00:11:04.610 --> 00:11:09.448
  • was kept in prison."
  • 00:11:09.448 --> 00:11:10.850
  • Now, this is good.
  • 00:11:10.850 --> 00:11:12.184
  • "But prayer was madewithout ceasing of the
  • 00:11:12.184 --> 00:11:15.087
  • church unto God for him,"so they were praying for Peter,
  • 00:11:15.087 --> 00:11:18.157
  • had intercessorspraying for him.
  • 00:11:18.157 --> 00:11:20.159
  • Verse 6: "And when Herod wouldhave brought him forth, the same
  • 00:11:20.159 --> 00:11:24.330
  • night Peter was sleepingbetween two soldiers, he was
  • 00:11:24.330 --> 00:11:28.534
  • bound with two chains: andthe keepers before the door,
  • 00:11:28.534 --> 00:11:33.005
  • they kept the prison.
  • 00:11:33.005 --> 00:11:35.641
  • And, behold, the angel of theLord came upon him, and a light
  • 00:11:35.641 --> 00:11:40.946
  • shined in the prison: and hesmote Peter on the side, and
  • 00:11:40.946 --> 00:11:45.851
  • raised him up,saying, Arise up quickly.
  • 00:11:45.851 --> 00:11:49.555
  • And his chains, theyfell off from his hands.
  • 00:11:49.555 --> 00:11:53.793
  • And the angel saidunto him, Gird thyself,
  • 00:11:53.793 --> 00:11:57.930
  • bind on thy sandals.
  • 00:11:57.930 --> 00:11:59.965
  • And so he did.
  • 00:11:59.965 --> 00:12:01.534
  • And he saith unto him,Cast thy garments about thee,
  • 00:12:01.534 --> 00:12:04.937
  • and follow me.
  • 00:12:04.937 --> 00:12:07.773
  • And he went out, and hefollowed him; and wist not
  • 00:12:07.773 --> 00:12:11.977
  • that it was true whichwas done by the angel;
  • 00:12:11.977 --> 00:12:16.282
  • but thought he saw a vision."
  • 00:12:16.282 --> 00:12:18.117
  • So he's got tobacktrack a little bit, like,
  • 00:12:18.117 --> 00:12:20.052
  • "Man, is thisreally happening?"
  • 00:12:20.052 --> 00:12:22.655
  • Next verse: "When they were pastthe first and the second ward,
  • 00:12:22.655 --> 00:12:27.560
  • they came unto the iron gatethat leadeth unto the city;
  • 00:12:27.560 --> 00:12:31.363
  • which opened to them of his ownaccord: and they went out, and
  • 00:12:31.363 --> 00:12:36.035
  • they passed on through onestreet; and forthwith the angel
  • 00:12:36.035 --> 00:12:41.173
  • departed from him."
  • 00:12:41.173 --> 00:12:42.508
  • And 11: "And when Peter was cometo himself, he said, Now I know
  • 00:12:42.508 --> 00:12:47.580
  • of a surety, that the Lordhas sent his angel, and has
  • 00:12:47.580 --> 00:12:51.817
  • delivered me out of the handof Herod, and from all of the
  • 00:12:51.817 --> 00:12:56.222
  • expectation of thepeople of the Jews."
  • 00:12:56.222 --> 00:13:00.392
  • Now, I'm telling you in thename of Jesus, the same God is
  • 00:13:00.392 --> 00:13:03.762
  • available to do the samething for those of you who
  • 00:13:03.762 --> 00:13:06.899
  • will believe him.
  • 00:13:06.899 --> 00:13:08.534
  • I'm telling you there areangels that are under orders.
  • 00:13:08.534 --> 00:13:12.671
  • They are under orders by GodAlmighty to hearken unto the
  • 00:13:12.671 --> 00:13:17.142
  • voice of his Word.
  • 00:13:17.142 --> 00:13:18.911
  • And those angels have beenassigned to make sure you go
  • 00:13:18.911 --> 00:13:22.414
  • down the right path, andif there's any danger--
  • 00:13:22.414 --> 00:13:24.917
  • see, they--he wasn't--Peter weren't supposed
  • 00:13:24.917 --> 00:13:26.518
  • to be spending allthat time in jail.
  • 00:13:26.518 --> 00:13:28.287
  • God knows how to deliver you.
  • 00:13:28.287 --> 00:13:30.322
  • He has put his angels underorder and those angels are going
  • 00:13:30.322 --> 00:13:34.927
  • to preserve your destiny.
  • 00:13:34.927 --> 00:13:37.696
  • They are gonna preserve yourdestiny, whatever it may be.
  • 00:13:37.696 --> 00:13:41.934
  • Now, look at Hebrewschapter 1 and verse 14.
  • 00:13:41.934 --> 00:13:45.471
  • Hebrews chapter 1 and verse 14.
  • 00:13:45.471 --> 00:13:48.874
  • He says, "Are they not allministering spirits," now, he's
  • 00:13:48.874 --> 00:13:52.544
  • referring to angels, "sent forthto minister for them who shall
  • 00:13:52.544 --> 00:13:57.216
  • be heirs of salvation?"
  • 00:13:57.216 --> 00:13:58.951
  • Those of you who are born again,you are heirs of salvation.
  • 00:13:58.951 --> 00:14:02.554
  • Those angels have beensent forth to minister,
  • 00:14:02.554 --> 00:14:06.992
  • to serve, to operate underorders by God, to those
  • 00:14:06.992 --> 00:14:13.666
  • that are heirs of salvation.
  • 00:14:13.666 --> 00:14:15.401
  • I am an heir of salvation,and I had the opportunity and
  • 00:14:15.401 --> 00:14:19.838
  • it's a blessing to see thesethings come to pass that when my
  • 00:14:19.838 --> 00:14:24.476
  • life was on the line, thatthose angels, those ministering
  • 00:14:24.476 --> 00:14:28.380
  • spirits came to minister tome at that particular time.
  • 00:14:28.380 --> 00:14:32.985
  • What a blessing of the Lord.
  • 00:14:32.985 --> 00:14:34.753
  • And then Psalms 103, verse 20.
  • 00:14:34.753 --> 00:14:37.957
  • Psalms 103 and verse 20.
  • 00:14:37.957 --> 00:14:41.493
  • He says, "Bless the Lord, ye hisangels, that excel in strength,
  • 00:14:41.493 --> 00:14:47.333
  • that do his commandments,hearkening unto the voice
  • 00:14:47.333 --> 00:14:52.037
  • of his word."
  • 00:14:52.037 --> 00:14:53.872
  • And thenEcclesiastes chapter 5 and 6.
  • 00:14:53.872 --> 00:14:57.509
  • Ecclesiastes chapter 5 and 6:"Suffer not thy mouth to cause
  • 00:14:57.509 --> 00:15:02.047
  • thy flesh to sin; neithersay thou before the angels"--
  • 00:15:02.047 --> 00:15:06.218
  • look up there, there'sthat mouth, the angels are
  • 00:15:06.218 --> 00:15:07.820
  • paying attentionto what you say, "hearkening to
  • 00:15:07.820 --> 00:15:10.189
  • the voice of the word."
  • 00:15:10.189 --> 00:15:11.757
  • He said, "Neither say thoubefore thy--the angels, that it
  • 00:15:11.757 --> 00:15:15.661
  • was an error: wherefore shouldGod be angry at thy voice, and
  • 00:15:15.661 --> 00:15:22.301
  • destroy the work of thy hands?"
  • 00:15:22.301 --> 00:15:25.337
  • And so, you know, theBible's very clear.
  • 00:15:25.337 --> 00:15:27.639
  • These angels are here,they're under assignment,
  • 00:15:27.639 --> 00:15:30.642
  • they're under commandment.
  • 00:15:30.642 --> 00:15:32.344
  • Don't say something that's goingto cause them to hold up, don't
  • 00:15:32.344 --> 00:15:37.649
  • say something before the angels.
  • 00:15:37.649 --> 00:15:40.919
  • He says, "Neither saythou before the angels,
  • 00:15:40.919 --> 00:15:43.555
  • that it was anerror," don't say that.
  • 00:15:43.555 --> 00:15:45.724
  • God Almighty has alreadyprepared your provision
  • 00:15:45.724 --> 00:15:49.461
  • and God Almighty hasalready done what's necessary
  • 00:15:49.461 --> 00:15:53.298
  • to preserve yourdestiny, that's a blessing.
  • 00:15:53.298 --> 00:15:57.436
  • Now, here's the next issue.
  • 00:15:57.436 --> 00:15:59.772
  • How do we getangels to work for us?
  • 00:15:59.772 --> 00:16:02.474
  • How do I call theangels to my rescue?
  • 00:16:02.474 --> 00:16:08.080
  • Well, I think the first piecehere is you call 'em through
  • 00:16:08.080 --> 00:16:12.384
  • trust, and remember, I saidtrust is a level of commitment.
  • 00:16:12.384 --> 00:16:17.623
  • You--there's somethingabout when I trust you and I'm
  • 00:16:17.623 --> 00:16:20.025
  • committed to trusting you, thatlevel of commitment now begins
  • 00:16:20.025 --> 00:16:24.563
  • to see these angels beginto work on your behalf.
  • 00:16:24.563 --> 00:16:27.132
  • Look at Danielchapter 3 and verse 28.
  • 00:16:27.132 --> 00:16:30.069
  • I wanna highlight how trustwas a main factor in this.
  • 00:16:30.069 --> 00:16:35.908
  • Daniel chapter 3, verse 28,he says: "Then Nebuchadnezzar
  • 00:16:35.908 --> 00:16:39.545
  • spake, and said, Blessed be theGod of Shadrach, Meshach, and
  • 00:16:39.545 --> 00:16:43.715
  • Abed-nego, who has sent hisangels, and delivered his
  • 00:16:43.715 --> 00:16:47.653
  • servants that," what?
  • 00:16:47.653 --> 00:16:49.254
  • "That trusted in him."
  • 00:16:49.254 --> 00:16:51.557
  • Delivered becausethey trusted in him.
  • 00:16:51.557 --> 00:16:55.327
  • Trust is a force of commitment.
  • 00:16:55.327 --> 00:16:59.498
  • It's not just confidence;it is a force of commitment.
  • 00:16:59.498 --> 00:17:04.436
  • And so by trusting God,you put angels to work.
  • 00:17:04.436 --> 00:17:08.173
  • Yeah, by literally trustingGod, your commitment to him.
  • 00:17:08.173 --> 00:17:12.411
  • I'm not talking about this,"Well, I trust you but I don't
  • 00:17:12.411 --> 00:17:14.580
  • see nothing yet, so Idon't trust you no more."
  • 00:17:14.580 --> 00:17:16.548
  • Your commitment to himwill put angels to work.
  • 00:17:16.548 --> 00:17:20.686
  • Few Scriptures here:Psalms 125, verse 1 and 2.
  • 00:17:20.686 --> 00:17:23.889
  • I think we looked at it in thisseries, let's look at again.
  • 00:17:23.889 --> 00:17:26.658
  • "They that trust in the Lordshall be as Mount Zion, which
  • 00:17:26.658 --> 00:17:33.165
  • cannot be removed, but abidefor ever," abide forever.
  • 00:17:33.165 --> 00:17:39.071
  • Verse 2: "As the mountains areround about Jerusalem, so the
  • 00:17:39.071 --> 00:17:44.676
  • Lord is round about his peoplefrom henceforth even for ever."
  • 00:17:44.676 --> 00:17:51.216
  • So this is so, so,so very important.
  • 00:17:51.216 --> 00:17:53.018
  • In fact, let's go downto verse 3 real quick.
  • 00:17:53.018 --> 00:17:55.988
  • Verse 3, he says: "For the rodof the wicked shall not rest
  • 00:17:55.988 --> 00:18:01.226
  • upon the lot of the righteous;lest the righteous put forth
  • 00:18:01.226 --> 00:18:05.297
  • their hands unto iniquity."
  • 00:18:05.297 --> 00:18:08.033
  • It won't happen, amen.
  • 00:18:08.033 --> 00:18:10.536
  • And then let's look atPsalms 34 and 7 one more time.
  • 00:18:10.536 --> 00:18:14.139
  • That force of commitment:by trusting God you put
  • 00:18:14.139 --> 00:18:16.475
  • angels to work.
  • 00:18:16.475 --> 00:18:18.377
  • By trusting God you put theangelic provision for your
  • 00:18:18.377 --> 00:18:21.847
  • covenant longevity to work.
  • 00:18:21.847 --> 00:18:24.082
  • "The angel of the Lord encampethround about them," that's what
  • 00:18:24.082 --> 00:18:27.686
  • he was talking aboutthere in Psalms 125.
  • 00:18:27.686 --> 00:18:29.855
  • "The angel of the Lord encampethround about them that," what?
  • 00:18:29.855 --> 00:18:33.825
  • "That fear him," thatreverence him, that respects
  • 00:18:33.825 --> 00:18:36.195
  • him, that trust him,and what happens?
  • 00:18:36.195 --> 00:18:38.330
  • He says, "And they deliverthem," and they deliver them.
  • 00:18:38.330 --> 00:18:41.934
  • Do you trust God?
  • 00:18:41.934 --> 00:18:43.802
  • Are you committed to that?
  • 00:18:43.802 --> 00:18:46.038
  • Is your trust aforce of commitment?
  • 00:18:46.038 --> 00:18:51.176
  • Well, if it is, then that trustis what's going to move the
  • 00:18:51.176 --> 00:18:55.314
  • angels to begin tooperate on your behalf.
  • 00:18:55.314 --> 00:18:59.618
  • Here's another thing that youdo to see these angels operate.
  • 00:18:59.618 --> 00:19:03.088
  • You believe.
  • 00:19:03.088 --> 00:19:05.057
  • Somebody says, "What?"Yeah, you believe.
  • 00:19:05.057 --> 00:19:07.292
  • You know, I'm preaching rightnow, you just assume that people
  • 00:19:07.292 --> 00:19:10.095
  • believe what I am saying?
  • 00:19:10.095 --> 00:19:11.797
  • You just assume that everybodyjust receives what I am saying?
  • 00:19:11.797 --> 00:19:15.567
  • And I am telling you that theworld is--this is ridiculous.
  • 00:19:15.567 --> 00:19:19.638
  • I mean, all they know aboutangels is on Christmastime or
  • 00:19:19.638 --> 00:19:22.374
  • something, you know?
  • 00:19:22.374 --> 00:19:23.842
  • But you believe.
  • 00:19:23.842 --> 00:19:25.310
  • And in Luke chapter 1, verse 45,something that happens when you
  • 00:19:25.310 --> 00:19:30.282
  • believe God, when youcommit him, something happens.
  • 00:19:30.282 --> 00:19:33.652
  • Look at this, verse 45: "Andblessed is she that believed:
  • 00:19:33.652 --> 00:19:38.890
  • for there shall be a performanceof those things which were told
  • 00:19:38.890 --> 00:19:44.096
  • her from the Lord."
  • 00:19:44.096 --> 00:19:47.299
  • I mean, Mary could talkto you about this, man.
  • 00:19:47.299 --> 00:19:49.935
  • An angel coming to you, talkingabout, "You gon' be pregnant
  • 00:19:49.935 --> 00:19:52.371
  • and it's not gon' beJoseph's," you know?
  • 00:19:52.371 --> 00:19:55.007
  • When you believeGod, you commit him.
  • 00:19:55.007 --> 00:19:58.110
  • And when God is committed,angels are assigned to ensure
  • 00:19:58.110 --> 00:20:01.179
  • that his will foryou is established.
  • 00:20:01.179 --> 00:20:04.616
  • So when you believe God, youcommit him, and God's like,
  • 00:20:04.616 --> 00:20:08.720
  • "Listen, it's gonna be done.
  • 00:20:08.720 --> 00:20:10.355
  • That's your job, yourjob's to carry out my will
  • 00:20:10.355 --> 00:20:15.594
  • on what they believeme for," praise God.
  • 00:20:15.594 --> 00:20:18.597
  • Look at Matthewchapter 18 and verse 10.
  • 00:20:18.597 --> 00:20:23.402
  • Matthew 18, verse10, and this is cool.
  • 00:20:23.402 --> 00:20:28.707
  • "Take heed that you despise notone of these little ones; for I
  • 00:20:28.707 --> 00:20:32.311
  • say unto you, That in heaventheir angels do always behold
  • 00:20:32.311 --> 00:20:38.483
  • the face of my Fatherwhich is in heaven."
  • 00:20:38.483 --> 00:20:41.453
  • The angels do alwaysbehold the face of the Father.
  • 00:20:41.453 --> 00:20:47.159
  • The angels do always beholdthe face of the Father, why?
  • 00:20:47.159 --> 00:20:53.899
  • To know their next assignment.
  • 00:20:53.899 --> 00:20:56.268
  • Why are the angelsalways beholding
  • 00:20:56.268 --> 00:20:59.271
  • the face of the Father?
  • 00:20:59.271 --> 00:21:00.839
  • To know their next assignment.
  • 00:21:00.839 --> 00:21:04.343
  • And I'm telling you, man,when God's committed and you're
  • 00:21:04.343 --> 00:21:07.512
  • committed to him, theyface--they are facing
  • 00:21:07.512 --> 00:21:11.516
  • the face of the Father inheaven so that they can know
  • 00:21:11.516 --> 00:21:15.821
  • their next assignment.
  • 00:21:15.821 --> 00:21:18.190
  • I tell you, man, I'm committedto God and God gets it done.
  • 00:21:18.190 --> 00:21:21.727
  • I'm committed to hisWord and it gets done.
  • 00:21:21.727 --> 00:21:24.830
  • I'm committed to hisprotection and it gets done.
  • 00:21:24.830 --> 00:21:28.066
  • And I am committed to longlife and longevity, and he'll
  • 00:21:28.066 --> 00:21:32.137
  • get the job done.
  • 00:21:32.137 --> 00:21:34.740
  • And everybody said,"Amen," all right?
  • 00:21:34.740 --> 00:21:37.676
  • So here's another one: service.
  • 00:21:37.676 --> 00:21:40.011
  • Service, you want theangels to work for you.
  • 00:21:40.011 --> 00:21:42.381
  • Service, this is so important.
  • 00:21:42.381 --> 00:21:44.683
  • Your service to God and hiskingdom also goes a long way in
  • 00:21:44.683 --> 00:21:48.820
  • provoking angelic intervention.
  • 00:21:48.820 --> 00:21:53.658
  • I read to you Daniel chapter 6and verse 16 and then 20 and 22.
  • 00:21:53.658 --> 00:21:58.997
  • You saw about thethree Hebrew boys.
  • 00:21:58.997 --> 00:22:02.467
  • Look at Exodus 23.
  • 00:22:02.467 --> 00:22:04.603
  • Exodus 23 also,verses 25 and 26.
  • 00:22:04.603 --> 00:22:08.874
  • Exodus 23:25-26.
  • 00:22:08.874 --> 00:22:11.143
  • He says, "And you shall servethe Lord your God, he shall
  • 00:22:11.143 --> 00:22:14.846
  • bless thy bread, and thy water;and I will take sickness away
  • 00:22:14.846 --> 00:22:19.951
  • from the midst of thee."
  • 00:22:19.951 --> 00:22:22.120
  • And notice, he says,"There shall nothing cast
  • 00:22:22.120 --> 00:22:25.557
  • their young, nor be barren,in thy land: the number
  • 00:22:25.557 --> 00:22:30.695
  • of thy days I will fulfill."
  • 00:22:30.695 --> 00:22:34.533
  • Man, I'm telling you,are you committed to God?
  • 00:22:34.533 --> 00:22:38.570
  • Are you committed to, youknow, walking with him?
  • 00:22:38.570 --> 00:22:43.308
  • Are you committed to thecommunion of the Word and the
  • 00:22:43.308 --> 00:22:47.379
  • communion of his presence?
  • 00:22:47.379 --> 00:22:50.415
  • Your communion with the Word?
  • 00:22:50.415 --> 00:22:52.651
  • It's not a waste of time.
  • 00:22:52.651 --> 00:22:53.985
  • Being a committed, sold-outChristian, being a Christian
  • 00:22:53.985 --> 00:22:58.089
  • that has, you know, decided tobecome intimate with God and his
  • 00:22:58.089 --> 00:23:01.726
  • Word, it's not a waste of time.
  • 00:23:01.726 --> 00:23:04.062
  • "I will fulfillyour days," amen.
  • 00:23:04.062 --> 00:23:09.501
  • Here's a fourth thing thatthe angels really move to:
  • 00:23:09.501 --> 00:23:13.371
  • prayer, prayer.
  • 00:23:13.371 --> 00:23:15.607
  • Matthew 6--Matthew 26 and verse51 through 53: prayer motivates
  • 00:23:15.607 --> 00:23:21.713
  • the angels to begin tomove on your behalf.
  • 00:23:21.713 --> 00:23:24.749
  • In verse 51 he says, "And,behold, one of them which were
  • 00:23:24.749 --> 00:23:30.422
  • with Jesus stretched out hishand, drew his sword, struck a
  • 00:23:30.422 --> 00:23:36.728
  • servant of the high priest's,and smote off his ear."
  • 00:23:36.728 --> 00:23:41.233
  • 52: "Then said Jesus unto him,Put up again the sword into his
  • 00:23:41.233 --> 00:23:49.241
  • place: for all they thattake the sword shall perish
  • 00:23:49.241 --> 00:23:53.979
  • with the sword.
  • 00:23:53.979 --> 00:23:56.147
  • Thinkest thou that Icannot now pray to my Father,"
  • 00:23:56.147 --> 00:24:01.219
  • so he's looking at them, like,even though the ear is off,
  • 00:24:01.219 --> 00:24:03.555
  • do you actually think thatI cannot pray to my Father?
  • 00:24:03.555 --> 00:24:06.958
  • "And he shall presently, heshall presently give me more
  • 00:24:06.958 --> 00:24:12.831
  • than 12 legions of angels?"
  • 00:24:12.831 --> 00:24:14.833
  • Do you not understand?
  • 00:24:14.833 --> 00:24:16.801
  • You guys aresurrounding me, trying
  • 00:24:16.801 --> 00:24:18.236
  • to attack me, y'alldon't even get it.
  • 00:24:18.236 --> 00:24:19.971
  • I can pray to my Fatherand 12 legions of angels
  • 00:24:19.971 --> 00:24:25.911
  • will be given unto me.
  • 00:24:25.911 --> 00:24:28.413
  • So that just shows me Jesus islike, "I can pray and angels
  • 00:24:28.413 --> 00:24:32.951
  • will be given.
  • 00:24:32.951 --> 00:24:34.719
  • I can pray andangels will be given."
  • 00:24:34.719 --> 00:24:39.057
  • Number 5: the name ofJesus provokes angelic
  • 00:24:39.057 --> 00:24:43.194
  • provision for your longevity.
  • 00:24:43.194 --> 00:24:44.930
  • The name of Jesus,calling upon the name of Jesus.
  • 00:24:44.930 --> 00:24:50.435
  • Now, look at Hebrewschapter 1 and verse 6,
  • 00:24:50.435 --> 00:24:53.405
  • calling upon the name of Jesus.
  • 00:24:53.405 --> 00:24:55.206
  • He says, "And again, when hebringeth in the firstbegotten
  • 00:24:55.206 --> 00:24:59.945
  • into the world, he saith,And let all the angels of God
  • 00:24:59.945 --> 00:25:07.285
  • worship him."
  • 00:25:07.285 --> 00:25:09.120
  • You see, when you invoke thename of Jesus in faith, you
  • 00:25:09.120 --> 00:25:12.691
  • secure the attention of all theangels of God who will come to
  • 00:25:12.691 --> 00:25:19.564
  • rescue you, who willcome to your rescue.
