Angels Still Do Come


Emily Miller

In today's culture of "seeing is beliving" it can be hard to really think that God can send His angels to assist us.

Sure, we believe it happend in the bible. Yet, it was also "back then in the past". We surely don't hear about anything happening like that in socety today.

Let me tell you that God still does send angels to intercede on our behalf. After all, we are all called to Him through salvation.

To which of the angels did God ever say, “Sit at my right hand until I make your enemies a footstool for your feet” ?  Are not all angels ministering spirits sent to serve those who will inherit salvation?
-Hebrews 1:13-14

We may just not see excatly how God does it all the time, or start to lose faith because we don't see an answer to our prayer in a timely mannor.

Yet, His angels still do come. They do, however, have to contend with very real forces of the enemy that may delay the response, such as the angel who was sent to answer Daniel's prayer.

In Cyrus’ third year as king of Persia, a message was revealed to Daniel (who had been renamed Belteshazzar). The message was true. It was about a great war. Daniel understood the message because he was given insight during the vision. During those days I, Daniel, mourned for three whole weeks. I didn’t eat any good-tasting food. No meat or wine entered my mouth. I didn’t wash myself until the entire three weeks were over. On the twenty-fourth day of the first month, I was by the great Tigris River. When I looked up, I saw a man dressed in linen, and he had a belt made of gold from Uphaz around his waist.  His body was like beryl. His face looked like lightning. His eyes were like flaming torches. His arms and legs looked like polished bronze. When he spoke, his voice sounded like the roar of a crowd.  I, Daniel, was the only one who saw the vision. The men with me didn’t see the vision. Yet, they started to tremble violently, and they quickly hid themselves.  So I was left alone to see this grand vision. I had no strength left in me. My face turned deathly pale, and I was helpless.  I heard the man speak, and as I listened to his words, I fainted facedown on the ground. Then a hand touched me and made my hands and knees shake.  The man said to me, “Daniel, you are highly respected. Pay attention to my words. Stand up, because I’ve been sent to you.” When he said this to me, I stood up, trembling.  He told me, “Don’t be afraid, Daniel. God has heard everything that you said ever since the first day you decided to humble yourself in front of your God so that you could learn to understand things. I have come in response to your prayer.  The commander of the Persian kingdom opposed me for 21 days. But then Michael, one of the chief commanders, came to help me because I was left alone with the kings of Persia.  I have come to explain to you what will happen to your people in the last days, because the vision is about times still to come.” When he said this to me, I bowed down with my face touching the ground and was silent.  Then someone who looked like a human touched my lips. I opened my mouth and began to talk. I said to the person standing in front of me, “Sir, because of this vision, pain has overwhelmed me, and I’m helpless.   How can I talk to you, sir? I have no strength left, and the wind has been knocked out of me.” Again, the person who looked like a human touched me, and I became stronger.  He said, “Don’t be afraid. You are highly respected. Everything is alright! Be strong! Be strong!” As he talked to me, I became stronger. I said, “Sir, tell me what you came to say. You have strengthened me.”  He asked, “Do you know why I have come to you? Now I will return to fight the commander of Persia. When I go, the commander of Greece will come. However, I will tell you what is inscribed in the true writings. No one will support me when I fight these commanders except your commander, Michael.

-Daniel 10

Sounds very simular to one of Frank Peretti's books, does it not?

Spiritual warfare is a real, ladies.

You have a very real enemy that you have to contend with, wrestle with, and grapple with day in and day out.

You may feel like giving up, like throwing in the towel.

Instead of doing this, you have to have a faith that is radical. Cling to the promises God has to offer you.

Trust that your Heavenly Father will send angels to intercede for you on his behalf, just as He interceded on behalf of Daniel.

  1. I so appreciated the reminder today that our enemy is real and we are in a battle, day in & day out, whether we realize it or not. I am so grateful for our God, who fights on our behalf and uncovers the schemes of the enemy to make us aware.

  2. Wasn't it so good of God to pull back that curtain in Daniel 10 and to let Daniel (and us!) know what's going on behind the scenes!
