Angels are coming! These are exciting times that are on the way, but at the same time, gross darkness will cover the earth. Pastor John Kilpatrick shared this prophetic encounter at Church of His Presence on January 3, 2020. Even though gross darkness is on the way, we should not be concerned because angels are on the way!
“Surely the Sovereign Lord does nothing without revealing his plan to His servants the prophets.” Amos 3:7
God will always prepare His people by revealing the future to us through His prophets. Pastor Kilpatrick shares how he had just laid back down in the middle of the night in his bed. He was lying on one side then turned over to the other side and he said when he turned over, he was in another world. “I didn’t see anything. I didn’t hear anything, but I knew everything. I can’t explain that, but I knew everything. The Lord communicated with me. I hear Him, he heard me, but I never saw Him. The Lord spoke to me and He said, ‘Son, tell the people, darkness is about to degenerate into gross darkness. It’s coming; it’s going to come soon.’” Gross darkness means that things will be dark spiritually.
“’ Tell them to be prepared. But I want to tell you; the angels are coming to help you…the angels are going to come. It’s going to get so severe… I’m going to send My angels to help get in the harvest and they’ll be working with you. You may see them, you may not see them, but you’ll know that they are there, and you’ll know by the way things are getting accomplished so quickly, you’ll know that they are getting accomplished for you. In the midst of some of the deepest darkest darkness, the world has ever seen.’”
The scripture says, to let the wheat, which would be the harvest, followers of Jesus, to grow up with the tares. Some versions of the Bible say the chaff, which would be those that don’t follow the Lord. Then on the day of the harvest, the tares are pulled out and burned. Then the harvest of souls for the Kingdom of God is brought in!
In the world right now, we see many things that could only be what the angels are getting accomplished quickly, which is why we know it must be angels. All this will happen while the world is in deep darkness. Currently, it looks like the world is at a point of darkness, darker than it has ever been. Like the days of Noah!
“As it was in the days of Noah, so it will be at the coming of the Son of Man. For in the days before the flood, people were eating and drinking, marrying and giving in marriage, up to the day Noah entered the ark; and they knew nothing about what would happen until the flood came and took them all away. That is how it will be at the coming of the Son of Man.” Matthew 24:37-39
We must pay attention to all that is happening around us so that we don’t miss the time that Jesus returns! You can access Pastor Kilpatrick’s full series HERE.
As the world gets darker, believers have no reason to be afraid. Why? Because Jesus came as the light of the world and as followers of Jesus, we bring His light to the world. Jesus is the Light. In scripture, it foretold of these days that are upon us now. “Arise, shine, for your light has come, and the glory of the Lord rises upon you. See, darkness covers the earth and thick darkness is over the peoples, but the Lord rises upon you and his glory appears over you. Nations will come to your light, and kings to the brightness of your dawn.” When we receive Jesus as our Lord and Savior, then we have the light of life inside of us and we share that light with the world. The darker things get in this world, the brighter you will get as a believer.
One thing we must examine ourselves for is to make sure we have our own light. Sometimes we can live off the light of others in our lives, thinking that we have our own relationship with Jesus. We must be serious before it is too late and begin our own relationship with Jesus if we have been living off the light of others. You can do that today! Read our stories at Meet My Father HERE and start living as a child of the Light today.
As a follower of Jesus, the Bible says, “You are all children of the light and children of the day. We do not belong to the night or to the darkness.” Greg shares a prophetic encounter that he had where he saw young people who were in love with Jesus but at the same time, they loved darkness! We cannot live in the light and the darkness. We must choose who we are going to serve! When we choose God, like Justin Bieber said, we can’t do that in our own strength. God empowers us to follow Him and to obey Him because we love Him.
Angels are watching over us! Greg shares another encounter he had where he saw an angel in his room! He was in a time of seeking God and was in a deep sleep. Suddenly at 2 a.m., the power and the glory of God’s presence appeared in part of the room. He knew it was an angel because the presence of God did not fill the room; it stayed in only part of the room. From other encounters, when it is God’s direct glory and presence, it fills the whole room. Immediately once God’s presence appeared in this encounter, he woke up, and he spun around to see the angel. Then suddenly, the angel left. Angels are watching over you! The book of Hebrews reads, “Are not all angels ministering spirits sent to serve those who will inherit salvation?” Angels show up to fulfill the will of God. They are appearing everywhere to the point where a security camera captured a picture of an angel.
Since God is sending His angels during this time of gross darkness, we must know how to honor and respect them. We are not to worship angels, but we must respect and honor them as God’s heavenly hosts. In the book of Jude, he warns us about abusing angels.
“Though you already know all this, I want to remind you that the Lord at one time delivered his people out of Egypt, but later destroyed those who did not believe. And the angels who did not keep their positions of authority but abandoned their proper dwelling—these he has kept in darkness, bound with everlasting chains for judgment on the great Day. In a similar way, Sodom and Gomorrah and the surrounding towns gave themselves up to sexual immorality and perversion. They serve as an example of those who suffer the punishment of eternal fire.”
How many people have left their place of authority? A father, mother, pastor? We cannot give up our place of authority that God has given us! If we do, then we will be destroyed.
“In the very same way, on the strength of their dreams these ungodly people pollute their own bodies, reject authority and heap abuse on celestial beings. But even the archangel Michael, when he was disputing with the devil about the body of Moses, did not himself dare to condemn him for slander but said, “The Lord rebuke you!” Yet these people slander whatever they do not understand, and the very things they do understand by instinct—as irrational animals do—will destroy them.”
We must understand this because angels are God’s enforcers. God has thousands upon thousands of angels to the point where each person could have up to twenty thousand angels assigned to them! When God does something on the earth, He is not necessarily doing it Himself, but He sends His angels who enforce what God has told them to do.
Angels are God’s enforcers! Greg is teaching a series on this to help bring this into reality for all of us. You can get access to the series HERE. We must be aware of the angels that are around us because we must be careful how we respond to them. To help us understand this, we can look at a law enforcement officer. In most cases we respect them and are careful in how we respond to them if they are enforcing the laws of the land. They get their authority from the elected official of the people, federal law enforcement from the President. City law enforcement from the Mayor. County law enforcement from the Sherriff. Even though they have the authority to enforce the laws they do not make the laws. If you are ticketed by an officer yet you are trying to dispute it with them; they will just tell you to take it up with the judge. Even then, the judge does not make the laws but interprets the law. The Legislative branch makes the laws who are elected by the people. At the same time, the legislative branch’s authority to make laws are subject to the law of the land, the U.S. Constitution. Everything must submit to that law.
In a similar way, God is the Judge, everything is under Him, and His law enforcement are angels. One thing to remember is that just because you call the police does not mean you aren’t going to jail. An officer shows up to enforce the law no matter who called in the crime. Which is what can happen when an angel shows up, you must make sure that you are under the blood of Jesus. God is a holy and righteous Judge when we are brought before His Judgement seat the only way, we will be found not guilty is if we are covered under the blood of Jesus Christ!
One way to function in these dark days, which are only getting darker, is to walk in reverential fear of the Lord. When we have the fear of the Lord, we will also treat His angels with respect. This is being aware that God’s eyes are always on you. God’s angels showing up is amazing but if you are living in rebellion, it is a scary thing. Like what happened with Sodom and Gomorrah, God sent His angels to destroy those cities, Lot and his family were told to leave so they don’t die and to not to look back on the cities. But Lot’s wife did look back and turned into a pillar of salt! She disobeyed the authority, the angels who are the enforcers of God. If you look at case after case in the Bible, we see where this very thing happened. We can’t let those who have lived their life breaking God’s law make us afraid of God or His enforcers of the law, angels.
These are exciting days! Pay attention and be prepared. What are your thoughts about angels as God’s enforcers? We want to hear from you! Write to us at Friends@VFNKB.com or in the VFNKB Community HERE. Greg shared in this segment.
