Angels are among us! They come for a lot of reasons. There are different kinds of angels: messenger angels, healing angels, fiery angels. I think that they have been bored for a long time and are ready to be put to work. They are here to help usher the Kingdom of God into our realm. As we begin to recognize that they are among us, we will begin to see more angelic activity as we pull heaven to earth.
One of our students came to our Supernatural School of Ministry from Wales. Before she moved here, she had a major encounter with God. She was woken in the middle of the night because the presence of God was so strong in her room. She could see a visible cloud in her room, and she waited on God to see what He was saying. Then God said to her, "I want you to go to Moriah Chapel and say 'wakey wakey.'" She thought, "You want me to do what?! I'm sorry God, but I'm not doing that!" Then He said to her again, "I want you to go to Moriah Chapel and say 'wakey wakey.'" At that point, she knew that if she didn't do it, she would regret it for the rest of her life. The next day when she got to the chapel, there were a lot of people outside. She said normally the chapel was empty. She asked God why there were so many people there and He said to her, "Because I had to tell you twice." She stood outside of the chapel and whispered "wakey wakey" because she did not want anyone to hear her. God then said to her, "Is that how much you want revival in Wales?" She then stood there that day and yelled at the top of her lungs, "WAKEY WAKEY"!!!
Nothing happened for about five minutes, so she turned around to cross the road to go over to a shop. As she turned around, she felt the ground begin to shake and heard this huge yawn. She looked back at the chapel, and a huge angel stepped out. All she could see were his feet because he was that large. She asked him who he was, and he turned to her and said, "I am the angel from the 1904 revival and you just woke me up." She asked him, "Why have you been asleep?" The angel answered and said, "Because no one has been calling out for revival anymore." She then asked him if he was the angel that was going to bring the next revival. He told her no because the next revival would bring in many more souls for the Kingdom. Since the angel has awoken, he has been seen by many others around Wales.
I don't know about you, but that would really get me excited! Having a visitation like that would really shake you up. I like angels. When you talk about them, they like to show up! And when they come, they bring the presence of God.
In the last couple of months, I personally have become more aware of the angelic activity in this realm. One of those times was when we were on a prayer trip to Arizona. A group of us had decided that it was time for us to take a prayer trip down to Sedona to release more of God's Kingdom. In doing so, we rented an RV and drove from Redding, California, (where we live) all the way down to Sedona, Arizona. Along the way, we would stop and pray if we felt impressed to do so.
One morning as we were driving up over Tehachapi Pass and coming down into the Mojave Desert, I began to feel angels. The closer we got, the stronger the impression felt. I could see them everywhere! Whenever there are angels present, I get very animated and excited, knowing that God is up to something big. I announced this to the group and said, "We have got to stop! We have to stop somewhere." We found an exit, took it and drove into this little town. We didn't really know what to do or where to go. We just knew that something was going on and we needed to find out what. As we drove around a corner I said, "I think that we are going to wake up some angels here." No sooner had I said that than we drove past a hotel to our left and, no joke, the name of the store was Mariah Country Inn. When I saw that sign, we immediately remembered the wakey wakey story from Wales. We knew we were to turn around, get out of the RV and wake up the angels. I wish I could convey to you the energy and the quickness of how God was working. We jumped out of the RV, I blew the shofar and rang the bell, and we yelled "WAKEY WAKEY." We got back into the RV and drove off. As we drove off, hilarious laughter broke out! We were stunned at the speed at which this all took place and were spinning from the adventure and the angelic activity. What in the world had just happened?! Heaven collided with earth. Woo hoo!!
Since that time, there has been a stirring in me to awaken the angels for use in this Kingdom reign that is upon us here on earth. I have shared these two stories in other places and have done a prophetic act of waking up the angels: having everybody cry out, "WAKEY WAKEY!" I know it is strange but it is very effective.
One more story: We were having a conference here at the church. Randy Clark was our speaker along with Bill. Randy had lost his Bible somewhere at the church. We couldn't find it anywhere. One of our gals who enjoys God's angels and gets pretty wacked when they are around, was standing next to a friend of mine. She announced that there was an angel right by her. He had been helping us look for Randy's Bible. He said to her, "Then why don't you ask the angel where Randy's Bible is." She did. When she did, she turned and walked towards our administration building. She walked right into Bill's office, got down on the floor, looked between the couch and table and there was his Bible.
Angels are here and they are among us. Be ready to use them when you are supposed to. We do not worship angels, nor do we command them around, but we should not be ignoring them either. They are here to carry out God's Kingdom. We have noticed that they also like having fun and being among us. They have been sent to assist us, and we need all the help we can get. I, for one, am ready and willing and God is releasing more! So get ready. They will come at times when you least expect it!
