The Heavenlies

The Heavenlies
Hebrews 13:2…… Do not forget to entertain strangers, for by so doing some people have entertained angels without knowing it.
Last week we talked about ministering angels. This week I want to talk about the activity that takes place in an unseen realm around us and in the heavenlies above us often without us knowing anything about it. A lot of what does not happen to us is a result of this unseen angelic activity.
When we started to pioneer the church in Drumchapel, Glasgow we stirred-up a hornet’s nest in the heavenly realms. The local youths threw petrol bombs at the church building, they stole our cars and they set them on fire. We know that our battle is not against people but against spiritual forces of wickedness in the heavenly realms (Ephesians 6:12) so, we prayed.
Initially, the situation got worse until, one night, something happened in the worship. It was as though the musicians had improved dramatically and the quality of the sound system was excellent. There was an element to the worship that we had never heard before. On reflection, we are all convinced that angels had joined in.
Before the end of the worship, a woman with five children burst through the door of the sanctuary. “I had to come, I had to follow the light!”
Apparently, from some considerable distance, she had seen a light in the sky and she had followed it. It led her to us where the light shone directly above our building. We believe that angels had led this lady, with her children, to what for her became a haven of peace.
We also believe that on that very night there was a spiritual bi-election and Jesus was voted into the seat of government. The enemy was ousted-out and Jesus took up His rightful place of authority as governor of the area.
Soon the local people began to get saved and become active in the church. Dramatic changes took place in many lives over the next eight years. The whole community was miraculously transformed.
Without a doubt, from that eventful night of worship, many angels came and went. Some came to assist us and others came to our rescue. Most of the time we did not see them, they mingled with the others, to us they were benevolent strangers.
Lord Jesus, thank you for helping us in ways we don’t even know. Amen.
