Angels ~ They may not appear like you’d imagined!


“And to which of the angels has he ever said, “Sit at my right hand until I make your enemies a footstool for your feet”?  Are they not all ministering spirits sent out to serve for the sake of those who are to inherit salvation?”   Hebrews 1:13-14 (ESV).

Not your traditional angels ~ Angels who warn

It is funny sometimes to see the pictures of angels so many times because the ones that I have seen, have not looked anything like the ones I have seen in pictures.  Once I saw one in a dream who looked like a very tall thin old man who came from God to tell me as he pointed at the Church nursery, that “If that doesn’t get fixed that the church would split” and that I was to tell the elders!

Well, I did, but it did not get fixed and many people left because of it…

You see, this Angel came as a man in a dream to warn of the split.  I saw later in the Word many times, that Angels came looking like men.  In fact more times than not,  Hebrews 13:2.

Do not neglect to show hospitality to strangers, for thereby some have entertained angels unawares.  Also, the Lord showed me something about Angels and that is that they appear in dreams as in the case of Joseph the earthly Father of Jesus.

The Angel who gave me direction

Then once I saw in a dream an angel in a high tower above a massive beach, like a watch tower.  He looked strange like some sort of creature that I had never seen before.  He was giving me direction for my ministry at the time.

When asking the Lord what that was and that I wanted to see it in scripture, He took me to the Living Creatures in Ezekiel 1:4-6,

“And I looked, and, behold, a whirlwind came out of the north, a great cloud, and a fire enfolding itself, and a brightness was about it, and out of the midst thereof as the color of amber, out of the midst of the fire.  Also out of the midst thereof came the likeness of four living creatures.  And this was their appearance; they had the likeness of a man.  And every one had four faces, and every one had four wings.”

Now those were some weird looking creatures right there!  But, we tend to see things sometimes and not understand it because we have seen the earthly version of someones imagination but we must understand that there are some strange beings fro heaven in the word of God!

Aides to His ambassadors and the funny anointing

Once before going to speak at a conference in Chicago, I was in a state of sleep and rolled over in my bed and there was this angel dressed in a suit of mail and he was standing with a golden tray and was bent over as He was handing me the try wit all manner of gold on it.  He had the strangest face.  The only way I can describe his eyes is that he had googly eyes that went around and around and he made me laugh.

The funny thing was, that when I got there, that that is exactly the kind of anointing that I had.  Everything that I said came out funny.  In fact, someone told me that I had a Jessee Duplantis anointing that day.  Also, God was saying through this encounter that He would always meet every need that I had as His ambassador.  And you know, I have always supernaturally had all that I needed to do what he has called me to do!

Angels who help get you to your destination

Another time on a ministry trip to South Carolina, we were to be there at a certain time for the first service.  But that night and we were stuck in traffic because of an accident.  I started praying that we would get there in time, and all at once it was as if the Van disappeared and I was now sitting in a Carriage that had poles coming out in front and back on four sides.  Then I looked and there were four men (angels) holding onto the poles.  Suddenly the carriage turned into the ark of the covenant.  The Lord then spoke to me that we are now the Ark carrying His presence and that because I was carrying His presence to South Carolina at His bidding, that He would get me there on time!  Sure enough we made it just in time!

One More Testimony

Once I had a dream that I was in my kitchen and there was another person standing across from me, to whom I was about to minister.  I began to take the person’s hands.  Suddenly there were lights manifesting behind me like in the old TV series Star Trek.  They came more and more, until a figure of an Angel began to take shape.  In that dream the Lord spoke and said that His Angel would stand behind me when I would minister to the people.  As soon as He said that, I then fell into the arms of that angel.

I guess why God wanted me to write this today, is that He wants people to know right now that He is sending you help from on high to do the ministry that He has called you to do!

He is sending in angels to assist with the great harvest that is about to take place!

Do not be afraid of some of the Angles whom He is about to send to help you, but look in His word and see all of the different ways and the different types of Angels in His word.

Don’t follow the New Age that will accept any kind of Gospel that is preached to them by some strange angels, but know that His word provides for those that are His Children to have these special helpers as they are in obedience and on a mission for Him!

Heaven is invading Earth right now because of the necessity of the times and we have not seen anything yet!
