You get healed when you look at the promise
You don’t get healed when you look at the problem You get healed when you look at the promise We should call forth things which do not exist *God cannot call for us* We should do the calling to see.
And the Angel of the Lord appeared to the woman and said to her, Indeed now ,you are barren and have borne no children, but you shall conceive and bear a son.
Then Manoah prayed to the Lord and said, “O my Lord, please let the Man of God whom You sent come to us again and teach us what we shall do for the child who will be born”.
Then Manoah said to the Angel of the Lord, please let us detain You, and we will prepare a young goat for You.
And the Angel of the Lord said to Manoah, Though you detain Me, I will not eat your food. But if you offer a burnt offering, you must offer it to the Lord ( For Manoah did not know He was the Angel of the Lord).
We serve a God who is the Creator of this universe and He has created Angel’s and He uses them to guide, guard, protect, deliver, provide, encourage and to convey messages to His chosen ones.
The above scripture portion tells us that an Angel of the Lord had visited Manoah’s wife and conveyed to her that she will bear a son and it also taught her how to bring up the child, and what to eat and what not to eat during her pregnancy ( Angel did a mother’s and mother in law’s job) and the message of the Angel came to pass and Manoah’s wife became the mother of Samson.
Angels are God’s creation and He uses them for His purposes. He used an angel to guide Lot to safety, He used an angel to protect the children of Israel on their journey to the promised land, He used an angel to remind Gideon of his strength, He used an angel to feed Elijah with hot bread baked on coals and a jar of water, He used an angel to deliver answers to the prayers that Daniel prayed, He used an angel to convey messages to Zacharias and Mary, He used an angel to guide Joseph, Mary and the Young Child to safety, He used angels to minister to Jesus in the wilderness, He used an angel to strengthen Jesus before going to the cross, He used an angel to deliver Peter from prison and guide him to safety, He used an angel to simply touch Herod and he was eaten by worms and he died publicly, and He will use the services of Michael the archangel to blow the trumpet before the end.
Religion has wrongly taught people to worship angels, that is why many Christians have a photo frame of an angel killing the dragon ( they say it is Micheal the archangel ) on the front door posts and they worship it thinking that if they worship it, it will protect them. Religion has very cooly and completely forgotten that it was the blood of the lamb that was applied on the door posts of the Israelites that protected and saved them from death. In the new covenant it is the blood of Jesus that protects us from all harm, so we should be applying the blood of Jesus in every area of our lives and we should learn to hang the word of God on our front door posts, because God has commanded us to do it.
God has deputed angels around every believer for safety and protection (Psalms 91:11-13). Many in the body of Christ have feast days dedicated to angels which is not according to the word of God. Manoah and his wife wanted to offer food to the angel, but it refused saying ” If you want to offer burnt offerings you must offer it to the Lord and not to me ” and it ascended into heaven. Instead of worshipping the Creator man has ended up worshipping the creation, only God ( Father, Son and the Holy Spirit ) are to be worshipped, God the Father spoke the word (His Son Jesus) and the Holy Spirit created it, so only they together are to be worshipped.
God has given so much of power and authority to man that he is unaware of it. No other being in the whole of the creation except man is allowed to spread the gospel. If God wanted to spread the gospel, He would have asked an angel to do it and it would have simply done it in a single day. How privileged and blessed man is to be chosen above all the creation to spread the gospel?. In the book of 1 Corinthians 6:3 it says Do you not know that we shall judge angels?, How much more things that pertain to this life?. Angels are our God given helper in times of trouble and difficulties, they are not to be worshipped, only God our Creator is to be worshipped not the creation.
“What is man that You are so mindful of him, Or the son of man that You take care of him?
You have made him a little lower than the angels, You have crowned him with glory and honor, And set him over the works of Your hands.
You have put all things in subjection under his feet “.
Heavenly Father thank You for the word, thank You for the sacrifice of Your Son Jesus which redeemed us from sin, sickness, poverty and death, thank You for the angelic protection that You have put around us, give us the grace to always worship You our Creator and never to drift away and worship Your creation, Lord we uphold every person who is worshiping the creation instead of the Creator open their eyes of understanding and give them the grace to know and worship You my Lord in Jesus name we ask and pray.
Amen and Amen.
God loves you.
