Calling all angels to our rescue. Any of us who need deliverance from danger or any problem any who are sick and need a touch from the Lord sent on angels wings or even from His own hand. This picture looks like He is commanding them. The centurion understood, he didn’t even want Jesus to come to his house, he didn’t feel worthy but understood authority. Jesus honored his request and he is one of two people who are said to have had great faith. They were not Jewish.
When something goes wrong , we call 911 and we should but then there is Psalm 91:1, He that dwells in the secret place of the Almighty shall abide under the shadow of His wings. It is a reference to the mercy seat. And 91:11, For He will give his angels charge over us. So let’s call all the angels to our side, cancelling the enemy assignments.
The centurion, being a soldier in a tough Roman army understood that Jesus had authority, spiritual authority. He had that authority by the Holy Spirit, He gave us authority as a believer. He promised nothing, by any means would harm us. Luke 10:17. So we have His authority working for us as a believer, if a centurion and a Syrophoenician woman understood that, and she was asking for crumbs, certainly, He offers us more after the Gentiles were grafted into the covenant. We should be living so the Jews take notice.
We should be praying from His holy rest, know He has already been victorious for us. He was arrested and crucified in order to ransom our souls. And had Peter to put away his sword, he was saving him here and healed Malchus ear, Peter may have been killed, and yet, he will deny knowing Him. He could have called legions of angels, possibly as many as 72,000. For our sake, He chose to die.
But He will call them out on of behalf, angels are said to be innumerable but like the stars I would imagine God knows each of them and calls them by name. In fact, His original command of, ” Light be! ” may be ongoing, there are so many unexplored galaxies, could He still be creating angels? People are still being born.
To me it was unclear if Jesus asked for angelic help after being tempted or in Gethsemane, He could have or else God just sent them as ministering spirits, Hebrews 1:14. Personally, I think God is so good, He sees what we need and will send it even if we don’t always ask. But it never hurts to ask Him to charge angels for us, and thank Him too.
I will answer them before they even call to me. While they are still talking about their needs, I will go ahead and answer their prayers! Isaiah 65:24. Now that is some verse, and it could very well be included as a promise to us as descendants of Abraham, He answers before we finish, that is better than 911, but call them anyway He understands, Just remember, Psalm 91:1 and 91:11.
We need angel when we are weary, saints are being worn out everyday, but we have every bit of help we need by calling all angels. Thousands of them, innumerable, fallen ones are outnumbered two to one or more. And God’s phone number is Jeremiah 33:3, Call upon me and I will answer and show you mighty things you did not know.
