The Footsteps of Angels

Footsteps of Angels

Journal Entry

heb 1_14It was around 10:30 A.M. on a Tuesday and I was in my office, which is located upstairs in our home. I was working on a video production for a client when all of sudden, I heard the sound of what sounded like angels running around on the roof. The pace and urgency of the footsteps sounded if there were two angels engaged in warfare of some kind with another being of some sort. What it was I can’t be for sure. It just seemed in my spirit that this was what it was about. The footsteps only lasted about 10 seconds and then all was quiet once again.

Note* Our roof has a 1:1 pitch ratio, which means for every horizontal foot the elevation rises in by 1 foot making it impossible for anyone to be up there running around.

Commentary:

If we could only see the amazing host of angels that are all about us every day to render aid and provide ministry to us when we need it. And, not only to just the saints but to the ones whom have not yet acknowledged Jesus as Lord. I had a follow up dream to this experience which is titled “The Attack” and you can read at The Attack

Then Elisha prayed and said, “O LORD, I pray, open his eyes that he may see.” And the LORD opened the servant’s eyes and he saw; and behold, the mountain was full of horses and chariots of fire all around Elisha. 2 Kings 6:17

Jesus Christ died for mankind and His blood was sprinkled on the altar in heaven for all mankind. It is His desire that none should perish.

“My sheep hear My voice, and I know them, and they follow Me; and I give eternal life to them, and they will never perish; and no one will snatch them out of My hand. John 10:27-28

When I repented, I had to know from the Father why He allowed me to live when I was such a sinner and wayward for so many years. I had experienced many situations in which I should have died but each time I came out unharmed and very alive. Morning after morning, I continued to raise the question before Him, “Why did you not wipe me off the face of the earth Father? One morning, He responded, “Love is eternal.”  There is was as plain as could be. The character of God is love and it is not the human kind of love which has so many condition attached to it. This is God’s kind of love which makes no distinction due to our human conditions or deeds. He even loves those who have rejected Him.

Spiritual Warfare

Just because we can’t see the angels which surround us doesn’t mean that they are not there. Indeed they are all about us.

Are they not all ministering spirits, sent out to render service for the sake of those who will inherit salvation? Heb. 1:14

If it wasn’t for angels defending the saints, evil would be able to wipe us out even before we knew we were in danger. It would be that fast. WHAM…YOUR DEAD! But with angelic intervention we often have no idea that an attack even occurred. It just happened on this particular morning that I was allowed to hear the angel’s footsteps running around hastily on the roof, defending me from evil. The battle was short lived since God’s angels are so much mighty than we are.

“Whereas angels who are greater in might and power do not bring a reviling judgment against them before the Lord.” 2 Peter 2:11

We live in such a broken world and there is evil all about us daily. Hidden in the carnage of life there are many miracles occurring every second of the day. It has been that way since the beginning of man.

The living and loving God said to me, “Love is Eternal.” That’s the Father I know and love because He first loved me.
