Angels, God's Invisible Agents, Part 1 of 4 (The Invisible World)

May 16, 2013

The Greek word for “angel” means “messenger.” Angels took God’s messages to many throughout the Bible. Normally we can’t see angels, but they are there, doing the bidding of God by ministering to the people of God. In this message, we’ll learn about a major part of the invisible world: God’s invisible agents.

Two kingdoms. Two kings. Two value-systems. Two pathways. Two ultimate destinations. In Philippians 3, Paul tells of those who are enemies of the cross of Christ, and how we can discern who is in God’s kingdom, and who is in the world’s kingdom led by Satan. In today’s message, we’ll learn how believers should be motivated to make a difference while they’re still in this world.

Believers in Christ live in two worlds. Augustine called these worlds the City of God and the City of Man. They have opposing values and opposing purposes.  As Christians, we need to bridge the gap between these two worlds so that people can see the power of God and its focus in the cross of Jesus.

Christians live in two worlds: the visible one of everyday life, and the invisible world of the spirit. These two worlds are often in conflict, and so our journey through life isn’t always easy. Making it through that journey requires the motivation to endure it, but where do we find that motivation?

At times, the powers of Satan seem overwhelming. Evil-doers prosper; good people suffer. It’s good to remember that the ultimate victory belongs to Jesus and to His people. In this message, we’ll draw from the miracles done by the Apostle Paul at Ephesus, where sorcerers burned their demonic writings as the power of the Holy Spirit fell on the crowd.

In the Lord of the Rings trilogy, the King of Rohan has an aide always whispering cunning words of evil in his ear. His name is Gríma Wormtongue. In this mythical world, he fed the king lies. But false prophets are prevalent in the real world as well. These agents of the devil spread falsehoods about God to a gullible public.  In today’s message, learn more characteristics of false prophets.

We all know that miracles can happen through the power of God, but did you know that Satan can perform miracles, too? It’s vital to discern whose power is on display when something supernatural happens. In today’s message, we’ll take a look back to the days of the Apostle Paul, when God did mighty miracles through His servant. And we’ll learn what set these miracles apart from those demons performed.

Some call it “black magic.” But it’s really Satan. He gives spiritual power to deceived people—and it is not a power for good. Through Satanic rituals, sorcery, charms, and other means, the devil enslaves his victims in a world of false religion, a world of evil, and a world of bondage.

Some people think the Bible is full of “thou shalt nots...” They have no use for a book that limits their freedoms in any way. But the problem is some “freedoms” are really chains of slavery. That’s the case for any means of seeking knowledge from the dark side, from Satan and his demons in the guise of mediums. Learn why God forbids this activity, and what can happen when we disobey.

Books that always seem to be popular are those that tell of near-death experiences, and the wonderful heaven that awaits us all. But the problem with most of them is that the books don’t mention any need for faith in Christ as the means to get there. The devil is deceiving multitudes into thinking that there’s no need to fear death; all will be okay.

God’s word is very clear: we’re not to consult mediums or fortune-tellers for guidance of any kind. But King Saul did so anyway to help him fight the Philistines. The knowledge he gained came from the dark side of the invisible world, and God was not pleased.
