After researching this subject for years, I have found five biblical keys that together stir our faith for greater angelic activity in our lives, cities and nations.
1. Believer’s Are Co-Workers with Christ.
The Holy Spirit moves upon the hearts of believers with the burden of the Lord to release God’s vast heavenly resources into the earth realm by the power of intercession. Prayer is man’s responsibility and opportunity to put out a “welcome mat” as an invitation for divine intervention.
2. God Hears and Answers Prayers.
Prayer and intercession influence and help determine the destinies of individuals and the direction of nations. Every prayer counts! What goes up must come down!
3. There Is an Innumerable Company of Angels Available.
Heaven’s army of angelic hosts are waiting for their next assignment and ready to be dispatched – (Unemployed Angels!) Jeremiah 33:22 – “As the hosts of heaven cannot be counted and the sand of the sea cannot be measured.” Hebrews 12:22 – “But you have come to Mt. Zion and to the city of the living God, the heavenly Jerusalem, and to myriads of angels.”
4. Angels Are Involved in Both the Spiritual and Practical Affairs of Mankind.
Angels are released from God’s throne in heaven into the affairs of man. They are involved in all facets of life in both the spiritual and natural everyday activities of man.
5. Angels Are Used to Deliver God’s Answers to Man’s Prayers.
Angels are especially utilized and involved in delivering the answers to our prayers from the throne of God. In Genesis 28, it says that angels ascend and descend. Why? Perhaps they are bringing back down the very answers to our prayers.
