IN any army, it is always good to have allies to fortify one’s forces against the opponents.
An ally is defined as a person, group, or nation that is associated with another or others for a common cause or purpose. In the case of war, nations join forces with other nations with the common goal and objective of destroying a common enemy.
Well, in the spirit realm, God has assigned spiritual allies to aid human beings in their spiritual fight against the kingdom of darkness. These allies are known as angels. According to scripture, angels are referred to as ministering spirits.
The word ministering, which comes from the word minister, literally means to serve. Scripture also makes it clear that these ministering spirits are sent to serve or assist those who are heirs to salvation (Christians). (Hebrews 1:13-14)
However, even though the angels of the Lord are our allies, we cannot say to our allies, “Go and do this or go and do that.”
Instead, these ministering spirits only respond to the commands and the Word of God – the Holy Scriptures. “Bless the Lord, ye His angels that excel in strength, that do His commandments, hearkening unto the voice of his word.” (Psalm 103:20)
The reality is, the angels that have been assigned to the believers of Jesus Christ as allies in their spiritual fight against the kingdom of darkness are for the most part unemployed, simply because they have yet to be deployed via the Christian declaring the commands, precepts and laws of God.
For example, when a Christian prays or speaks to the unseen world (spirit world) and declares no weapon formed against them shall prosper, while at the same time condemning every tongue speaking against them according to Isaiah 54:17, these words become marching orders for our spiritual allies to not only prevent the weapons of the kingdom of darkness from being successful against us, but at the same time stopping those evil words that are being spoken against us by others from ever coming to pass.
I submit to you that if you are not declaring the Word of God on consistent basis, especially in your prayer, then you are not taking advantage of the spiritual allies assigned to assist you in the process of spiritual warfare.
Speak to the realm of the spirit by continually declaring the scriptures against the spiritual and physical battles that are being waged against you. While you may not be able to physically see your spiritual allies fighting on your behalf, know that they are waiting on your commands to begin defeating the forces of darkness against you.
