At prayer and worship before a bible study gathering, suddenly the atmosphere changed. The room began to feel very full though there were only four of us present. An excitement began to build around us. I asked the Lord what was happening and I heard: Angels have gathered.
I began to see them in a vision:
Angels with battering rams to break down fortresses of fear and to open doors held closed by the enemy. Angels of passion, zeal and fervency to ignite the believers. Angels of purity, holiness and righteousness. Angels of steadfastness and wholeheartedness. Angels of Truth, truth about the word of God and the blood of Jesus. And one towering, very large, angel bearing peace.
We thanked the Lord for the gathering of angels and continued to worship.
The room kept feeling more and more full as more and more angels gathered with us. I saw them in a second very brief vision packing into the room. Truly I did not know what to do as the atmosphere continued to become electrified with the presence of God and His hosts of angels. They gathered with us and waited on us to discover their purpose by the Spirit of God. Then I heard: Release them by faith to go throughout the lands.
Holy Spirit showed me in a third very brief vision there were battalions of them and we were assigned to release them through prayer to do His work in our city and beyond to our nation and the nations.
He warned us that we must not get into error regarding them (the angels). We are not to fix our eyes on angels or stay our minds on angelic encounters, but we are to keep our minds fixed on Jesus and look to our Father in heaven.
We prayed and repented for any way we were in error regarding our view or emotions toward angels and then began to pray to release them.
In the fourth and final very brief vision, I saw the large angel of peace unfold his wings and cover us. We prayed as Holy Spirit led and through our prayers sent forth the angels to break down all strongholds of fear, to open doors, and to saturate the body of Christ with passion, zeal and fervency; purity, holiness and righteousness, steadfastness and wholeheartedness; and fullness of truth about the word of God and the blood of Jesus. Lastly, we asked for peace to blanket every believer.
When we finished, the peace of God and His presence remained with us but the room no longer felt packed full. We were greatly encouraged that this supernatural gathering occurred, but even more encouraged that the Lord used our prayers to release His heavenly helpers to do awesome work for Him throughout our land and lands around the world.
I believe the Lord gave us a gift in this experience of seeing and sensing what happens whenever we gather to pray. This night we were aware of angelic presence with natural as well as supernatural senses. Even when we do not sense there presence, they are there at every prayer gathering. The room is packed out. By the word of God in our mouths the angels are sent forth as the Holy Spirit leads us to speak out the Fathers plans. These are the things Jesus is interceding for at the Father’s right hand. Truly the effectual fervent prayers of the righteous avail much!
