PREPARATION FOR THE SPIRITUAL REALM & SPIRITUAL WARFARE
THE CELESTIAL BEINGS
Celestial Beings such as Angels are Spiritual Intelligent and Powerful Beings. However, People should be Aware that there are two Types of Spiritual Beings. Holy Spiritual Beings and Evil Spiritual Beings.
HOLY SPIRITUAL BEINGS – MINISTERING SPIRITS
Heb 1:14 Are they not all ministering spirits, sent forth to minister for them who shall be heirs of salvation?
Holy Spiritual Beings are the Bene HA`ELOHIM, the Sons of YHVH GOD. The first recorded mention by Category of a Celestial Being is in the Book of Genesis – it was the Cherubim who Kept the Way of the Tree of Life. The Celestial Beings Prevents anyone from taking the Fruit from the Tree. Anyone taking of the Fruit and Eating it would Live Forever, but it would be Living in a Degraded State of Spiritual Deprivation and Depravation. YHVH GOD prevented this through the Intercession of HIS Mercy.
Gen 3:22 And the LORD God said, Behold, the man is become as one of us, to know good and evil: and now, lest he put forth his hand, and take also of the tree of life, and eat, and live for ever:
Gen 3:23 Therefore the LORD God sent him forth from the garden of Eden, to till the ground from whence he was taken.
Gen 3:24 So he drove out the man; and he placed at the east of the garden of Eden Cherubims, and a flaming sword which turned every way, to keep the way of the tree of life.
Holy Celestial Beings Inhabit Heavenly Places and are Ministering Spirits to the >> Inheritors of Salvation (Disciples) << and are the Messengers of YHVH GOD to Mankind to bring Announcements of Joy, to Edify with Knowledge as with Daniel the Prophet or to Relay Warnings of Evil as with the Jews when in Egypt during the Plagues and to the Disciples during the Days of Persecution as seen in the Book of the Revelation.
Historically, Angels are Beneficent and have appeared to Mankind as a Medium of the Power and Will of YHVH GOD to Execute HIS Commands and Announcements. Angels may reveal themselves to individuals as well as to a whole Nation as with Israel during their Exodus from Egypt to the Promised Land.
Angels were sent to Foretell great news to Abraham regarding the birth of Isaac; to Manoah the birth of Samson; to Zacharias and Elizabeth the birth of John the Baptist who was the Harbinger and Prophet of YEHOSHUA JESUS. In each case the Woman was barren and beyond the Child-bearing age but Wondrously Conceived.
Gen 18:2 And he lift up his eyes and looked, and, lo, three men stood by him: and when he saw them, he ran to meet them from the tent door, and bowed himself toward the ground,
Gen 18:9 And they said unto him, Where is Sarah thy wife? And he said, Behold, in the tent.
Gen 18:10 And he said, I will certainly return unto thee according to the time of life; and, lo, Sarah thy wife shall have a son. And Sarah heard it in the tent door, which was behind him.
Jdg 13:2 And there was a certain man of Zorah, of the family of the Danites, whose name was Manoah; and his wife was barren, and bare not.
Jdg 13:3 And the angel of the LORD appeared unto the woman, and said unto her, Behold now, thou art barren, and bearest not: but thou shalt conceive, and bear a son.
Jdg 13:24 And the woman bare a son, and called his name Samson: and the child grew, and the LORD blessed him.
Luk 1:5 There was in the days of Herod, the king of Judaea, a certain priest named Zacharias, of the course of Abia: and his wife was of the daughters of Aaron, and her name was Elisabeth.
Luk 1:6 And they were both righteous before God, walking in all the commandments and ordinances of the Lord blameless.
Luk 1:7 And they had no child, because that Elisabeth was barren, and they both were now well stricken in years.
Luk 1:11 And there appeared unto him an angel of the Lord standing on the right side of the altar of incense.
Luk 1:12 And when Zacharias saw him, he was troubled, and fear fell upon him.
Luk 1:13 But the angel said unto him, Fear not, Zacharias: for thy prayer is heard; and thy wife Elisabeth shall bear thee a son, and thou shalt call his name John.
Also, at the Appointed Time Angels were sent to Mary, Joseph, and a Host of Angels to Shepherds announcing the birth of YEHOSHUA JESUS. Three sets of Scriptures are cited as they depict the Event with the three recipients of the Announcements, Joseph, Mary and the Shepherds.
Mat 1:18 Now the birth of Jesus Christ was on this wise: When as his mother Mary was espoused to Joseph, before they came together, she was found with child of the Holy Ghost.
Mat 1:19 Then Joseph her husband, being a just man, and not willing to make her a publick example, was minded to put her away privily.
Mat 1:20 But while he thought on these things, behold, the angel of the Lord appeared unto him in a dream, saying, Joseph, thou son of David, fear not to take unto thee Mary thy wife: for that which is conceived in her is of the Holy Ghost.
Mat 1:21 And she shall bring forth a son, and thou shalt call his name JESUS: for he shall save his people from their sins.
Luk 1:26 And in the sixth month the angel Gabriel was sent from God unto a city of Galilee, named Nazareth,
Luk 1:27 To a virgin espoused to a man whose name was Joseph, of the house of David; and the virgin’s name was Mary.
Luk 1:28 And the angel came in unto her, and said, Hail, thou that art highly favoured, the Lord is with thee: blessed art thou among women.
Luk 1:31 And, behold, thou shalt conceive in thy womb, and bring forth a son, and shalt call his name JESUS.
Luk 1:32 He shall be great, and shall be called the Son of the Highest: and the Lord God shall give unto him the throne of his father David:
Luk 1:35 And the angel answered and said unto her, The Holy Ghost shall come upon thee, and the power of the Highest shall overshadow thee: therefore also that holy thing which shall be born of thee shall be called the Son of God.
3) THE SHEPHERDS
Luk 2:8 And there were in the same country shepherds abiding in the field, keeping watch over their flock by night.
Luk 2:9 And, lo, the angel of the Lord came upon them, and the glory of the Lord shone round about them: and they were sore afraid.
Luk 2:10 And the angel said unto them, Fear not: for, behold, I bring you good tidings of great joy, which shall be to all people.
Luk 2:11 For unto you is born this day in the city of David a Saviour, which is Christ the Lord.
Luk 2:12 And this shall be a sign unto you; Ye shall find the babe wrapped in swaddling clothes, lying in a manger.
Luk 2:13 And suddenly there was with the angel a multitude of the heavenly host praising God, and saying,
Luk 2:14 Glory to God in the highest, and on earth peace, good will toward men.
Guardian Angels are mentioned, but not, as was later the case, as Guardian Spirits of Individuals and Nations. It was said of the Apostle Peter that his Angel was knocking at the door where people were Praying for his release from Prison. Another example was the Statement made by YEHOSHUA JESUS that the Angels of Children behold (look upon) the Face of YHVH GOD, HIS FATHER.
Act 12:14 And when she knew Peter’s voice, she opened not the gate for gladness, but ran in, and told how Peter stood before the gate.
Act 12:15 And they said unto her, Thou art mad. But she constantly affirmed that it was even so. Then said they, It is his angel.
Mat 18:10 Take heed that ye despise not one of these little ones; for I say unto you, That in heaven their angels do always behold the face of my Father which is in heaven.
Conversely, Messengers were sent to Abraham about the Destruction of Sodom.
There are Higher Orders of Celestial Beings which do not interact with Humans on the Physical Plane or Dimension but are Seen mostly in Visions. We will discuss these Types of Celestial Beings later in the continuing articles.
EVIL SPIRITUAL BEINGS – ADVERSARIES
1Pe 5:8 Be sober, be vigilant; because your adversary the devil, as a roaring lion, walketh about, seeking whom he may devour:
There are Evil Spiritual Beings who are the Adversaries of Mankind whose only Goal is the Utter Destruction and Suffering of Mankind. They are Fallen angels, devils and demons under the Power of Darkness, Deception and under the Rule of the serpent called the devil and Satan which deceives the whole World. They are the one third of angels – the Evil spiritual beings who were cast down to the Earth with Satan as his angels which Disciples wrestle or strive against which include principalities, powers, the rulers of the darkness of this world and against spiritual wickedness in high places.
They Influence Unbelievers whose Minds are Blinded by the god of this World (Satan) and so they do not Believe the Glorious Gospel of YEHOSHUA HA`MASHIACH JESUS THE CHRIST and so, to them the Gospel is Hid, and they ae Lost.
Rev 12:4 And his tail drew the third part of the stars of heaven, and did cast them to the earth: and the dragon stood before the woman which was ready to be delivered, for to devour her child as soon as it was born.
Rev 12:9 And the great dragon was cast out, that old serpent, called the Devil, and Satan, which deceiveth the whole world: he was cast out into the earth, and his angels were cast out with him.
Rev 12:12 Therefore rejoice, ye heavens, and ye that dwell in them. Woe to the inhabiters of the earth and of the sea! for the devil is come down unto you, having great wrath, because he knoweth that he hath but a short time.
Those under the Rule of the Adversary are Unbelievers, Individuals who are Deceitful in the World, False Apostles, and those in False Ministries & Churches falsely appearing as Apostles of YEHOSHUA JESUS. These Individuals disguise themselves as Apostles of YEHOSHUA JESUS but are actually Wolves in Sheep’s Clothing and Workers of Iniquity. They Emulate their Master who is the devil the Adversary (Satan), who prowls and like a Roaring Lion seeks whom he may devour (Deceive and Destroy).
Eph 6:12 For we wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness in high places.
2Co 4:3 But if our gospel be hid, it is hid to them that are lost:
2Co 4:4 In whom the god of this world hath blinded the minds of them which believe not, lest the light of the glorious gospel of Christ, who is the image of God, should shine unto them.
2Co 11:13 For such are false apostles, deceitful workers, transforming themselves into the apostles of Christ.
2Co 11:14 And no marvel; for Satan himself is transformed into an angel of light.
2Co 11:15 Therefore it is no great thing if his ministers also be transformed as the ministers of righteousness; whose end shall be according to their works.
Joh 8:43 Why do ye not understand my speech? even because ye cannot hear my word.
Joh 8:44 Ye are of your father the devil, and the lusts of your father ye will do. He was a murderer from the beginning, and abode not in the truth, because there is no truth in him. When he speaketh a lie, he speaketh of his own: for he is a liar, and the father of it.
Joh 8:45 And because I tell you the truth, ye believe me not.
Jas 2:19 Thou believest that there is one God; thou doest well: the devils also believe, and tremble.
