The Gospel of Luke 24 provides a detailed account of the
brief season following the resurrection of Christ. Christ’s time of living on
earth was coming to a close. HE had completed all of HIS Father’s assignments
and was finishing the conclusion of HIS story on earth.
After reading and studying Luke 24 many times, I wonder how
many times in our lives do we “see angels” and then later change the wording to
“seeing a vision of angels”? In my own life, I have seen angels since I was a
very young child. Angels are created by
the LORD GOD and they, like humans come in various sizes and all the colors of
the rainbow. Intentionally, I watch
their movement, pay attention to their directions, listen to their encouragement,
and receive their protection.
And to further clarify, no I do not worship angels, nor do
they replace GOD the FATHER, JESUS CHRIST the SON, or the HOLY SPIRIT…they are
gifts of light, hope, encouragement, love, protection, provision and joy sent
by PAPA GOD.
The observance of angels has been the way of my whole life,
yet when I share with other that I see angels, often they will change the words
to “oh, you mean you had a vision of angels”….and actually, no that is not what
Intentionally, I do not listen to the radio, music or an
audio-book when I am driving because I want more than my own life to hear GOD’s
voice first, to hear the whisper of angel wings, to recognize a resonation of
the Holy Spirit, to hear the sound of YESHUA interceding for HIS people. There
is no sound more important to me than the music of heaven, the glorious sounds
of eternity, and/or the sustaining life-giving sounds of ABBA ADONAI.
Often when I travel with others, I will say, “Oh we need to
turn here or stop here or take a break here or we need to go now” and it is a
rare moment when those I am traveling with will trust me, because the request seems
illogical or untimely to them, yet, I see the angels’ movement. On one
occasion, we were rerouted in traffic because of accident which added 12 hours
to our trip, because the person I was traveling with refused to leave on-time.
Had we left 10 minutes earlier, at the time the Holy Spirit said that we needed
to leave, we would have missed the accident and arrived at our destination on
time. The LORD so desires to bless our lives, yet it seems most are determined
by their self-will to miss most of HIS blessings.
When I am the one behind the wheel, then a barrage of “what
are you doing?” questions are pummeled in my direction. If I am the passenger
in the vehicle, more frequently than not, the driver will look at me as though
I am a single-cell amoeba.
I wonder why it is so difficult for people who have known me
my whole life or lengthy portions of my life to trust me? And I wonder why
people who have known JESUS their whole life still struggle to trust HIM?
