Intruding Into The Unseen Realm
How does God speak to us in this present dispensation?
Will God send angels to speak to us in our dispensation as He previously did in the Old Testament period?
Do we have guardian angels and should we try to contact them?
Many people have become interested in angelic beings and have been trying to make contact with them.
Various people have written books to teach people how to connect or communicate with their spiritual guides and how to enter into the spiritual realm.
Many Christians have been drawn into the area of the supernatural because they believe that all angels are from God and so contacting them is okay.
However, are all angels from God?
And the great dragon was cast out, that old serpent, called the Devil, and Satan, which deceiveth the whole world: he was cast out into the earth, and his angels were cast out with him. (Revelation 12:9)
Then shall he say also unto them on the left hand, depart from me, ye cursed, into everlasting fire, prepared for the devil and his angels (Matthew 25:41)
Note the four highlighted words in the two scripture verses. They are Satan, the devil, and his angels. It means that Satan has angels who he controlled.
These angels are not demons neither are they the fallen angels who married the daughters of men in Genesis six. These angels are ministering beings who work for Satan.
Therefore, if you are trying to contact your guardian angels or spiritual guides how do you know whether God’s angels or Satan’s angels appear to you?
Satan is using different tactics and tricks to capture people.
Satan is tired of people demonizing him and attaching ugly monsters to his name.
Hence, Satan and his angels are appearing to many unsuspecting Christians as angels of light so that they believe they are having visions of Christ and His holy angels.
As a matter of fact, Jesus said that in the last days there will be many false Christs and prophets who will show great signs and wonders that they will deceive even the elect if possible (Matthew 24:24).
This means that these false Christs will be performing miracles and pretending to do good things. They will appear in your dreams and visions and they will literally visit you if you try to contact them.
The performances of these false Christs and angels will appear so genuine that they will deceive many people including Christians. Only the elect will not be deceived.
Who are the elect?
These are the people who have a personal relationship with God. They are obedient to the Holy Spirit and they studied the Word of God.
We are like sheep living in a world filled with wolves so we need to to be wise as serpents but as harmless as the dove (Matthew 10:16).
It means that the serpent (Satan) is wise and so we cannot afford to be outsmarted by him.
The following verses answer all the questions that are asked at the beginning of this post.
God, who at sundry times and in divers manners spake in time past unto the fathers by the prophets, hath in these last days spoken unto us by His Son, whom He hath appointed heir of all things, by whom also He made the worlds; who being the brightness of His glory, and the express image of His person, and upholding all things by the word of His power, when He had by Himself purged our sins, sat down on the right hand of the Majesty on high: Being made so much better than the angels, as He hath by inheritance obtained a more excellent name than they. (Hebrews 1:1-4)
Let no man beguile you of your reward in a voluntary humility and worshipping of angels, intruding into those things which he hath not seen, vainly puffed up by his fleshly mind, and not holding the head, from which all the body by joints and bands having nourishment ministered, and knit together, increaseth with the increase of God. (Colossians 2:18-19)
God speaks to us through His Son Jesus Christ who is our High Priest. The Lord Jesus Christ is far higher and better than all the holy angels in heaven.
He has received a more excellent name than they.
Therefore, let us pray and make our contact directly to God through the Lord Jesus Christ. Let us leave the unseen things (angelic beings) unseen.
We know that the angels of the Lord encamp round about those who fear God and delivers them (Psalms 34:7), but we do not need to see them.
We are not to intrude (investigate, invade, search into) or to allow anyone to encourage us to intrude into the things which we cannot see.
We sealed the Word of God with a resounding AMEN!
