FAR ABOVE

AA

Far Above All Principality And Power

and what is the exceeding greatness of His power toward us who believe, according to the working of His mighty power which He worked in Christ when He raised Him from the dead and seated Him at His right hand in the heavenly places, far above all principality and power and might and dominion, and every name that is named, not only in this age but also in that which is to come. Ephesians 1:19-21

Put on the whole armor of God, that you may be able to stand against the wiles of the devil. For we do not wrestle against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this age, against spiritual hosts of wickedness in the heavenly places.  Therefore take up the whole armor of God, that you may be able to withstand in the evil day, and having done all, to stand. Ephesians 6:11-13

It’s a fact of life that as Christians, as believers, we do not wrestle against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this age, against spiritual hosts of wickedness in the heavenly places. But it’s also a fact that we have at our disposal the use of the name of Jesus which is far above all principality and power and might and dominion, and every name that is named, not only in this age but also in that which is to come. Everything must bow to the name of Jesus including sickness, disease, poverty, lack, trouble and mountains. God’s word is unchanging:

So Jesus answered and said to them, “Assuredly, I say to you, if you have faith and do not doubt, you will not only do what was done to the fig tree, but also if you say to this mountain, ‘Be removed and be cast into the sea,’ it will be done. Matthew 21:21

For this reason I bow my knees to the Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, from whom the whole family in heaven and earth is named,  that He would grant you, according to the riches of His glory, to be strengthened with might through His Spirit in the inner man, that Christ may dwell in your hearts through faith; that you, being rooted and grounded in love, may be able to comprehend with all the saints what is the width and length and depth and height- to know the love of Christ which passes knowledge; that you may be filled with all the fullness of God. Now to Him who is able to do exceedingly abundantly above all that we ask or think, according to the power that works in us, to Him be glory in the church by Christ Jesus to all generations, forever and ever. Amen. Ephesians 3:14-21

Finally, my brethren, be strong in the Lord and in the power of His might. Ephesians 6:10

And my God shall supply all your need according to His riches in glory by Christ Jesus. Philippians 4:19

In ourselves we are nothing and do not have the strength or power to move mountains into the sea. But in God through Christ Jesus we are extremely powerful and we can have whatever we say and believe.  Yes, if we have faith and do not doubt, we can say to a mountain, ‘Be removed and be cast into the sea,’ it will be done. In ourselves we are not sufficient to meet the needs that we face, but in Christ Jesus God shall supply all our need according to His riches in glory by Christ Jesus. Our sufficiency is God. There is no defeat or failure in God. God’s word is unchanging:

Not that we are sufficient of ourselves to think of anything as being from ourselves, but our sufficiency is from God,  who also made us sufficient as ministers of the new covenant, not of the letter but of the Spirit; for the letter kills, but the Spirit gives life. 2 Corinthians 3:5-6

But thanks be to God, who gives us the victory through our Lord Jesus Christ. 1 Corinthians 15:57

For whatever is born of God overcomes the world. And this is the victory that has overcome the world-our faith. 1 John 5:4

Yes, God plus one is a majority against any negative circumstances or enemy. More are those who are for us than those who are against us. We are surrounded by innumerable angels whose power is unlimited. In Jesus most distressing hour He could have prayed to His Father, and He would have provided Him with more than twelve legions of angels (Matthew 26:53). But so that the Word of God would be fulfilled Jesus did not. But nevertheless according to God’s word in Hebrews 1:14 each child of God can ask his or her ministering angels to minister to them any time that they need just like they did for Abraham. God’s word is true:

Now Abraham was old, well advanced in age; and the LORD had blessed Abraham in all things.  So Abraham said to the oldest servant of his house, who ruled over all that he had, “Please, put your hand under my thigh, “and I will make you swear by the LORD, the God of heaven and the God of the earth, that you will not take a wife for my son from the daughters of the Canaanites, among whom I dwell;  “but you shall go to my country and to my family, and take a wife for my son Isaac.”  And the servant said to him, “Perhaps the woman will not be willing to follow me to this land. Must I take your son back to the land from which you came?”

But Abraham said to him, “Beware that you do not take my son back there. “The LORD God of heaven, who took me from my father’s house and from the land of my family, and who spoke to me and swore to me, saying, ‘To your descendants I give this land,’ He will send His angel before you, and you shall take a wife for my son from there. Genesis 24:1-7

Yes, just like Abraham promised the LORD, who had blessed Abraham in all things, sent His angel with his servant and prospered his way to take a wife for Isaac from Abraham’s family and from his father’s house. Yes God has ordained for heirs of salvation to have angels to minister to them just like they did for Jesus and Jacob:

Then the devil left Him, and behold, angels came and ministered to Him. Matthew 4:11

And He was there in the wilderness forty days, tempted by Satan, and was with the wild beasts; and the angels ministered to Him. Mark 1:13

Now Jacob went out from Beersheba and went toward Haran.  So he came to a certain place and stayed there all night, because the sun had set. And he took one of the stones of that place and put it at his head, and he lay down in that place to sleep.  Then he dreamed, and behold, a ladder was set up on the earth, and its top reached to heaven; and there the angels of God were ascending and descending on it.  And behold, the LORD stood above it and said: “I am the LORD God of Abraham your father and the God of Isaac; the land on which you lie I will give to you and your descendants.  “Also your descendants shall be as the dust of the earth; you shall spread abroad to the west and the east, to the north and the south; and in you and in your seed all the families of the earth shall be blessed.  “Behold, I am with you and will keep you wherever you go, and will bring you back to this land; for I will not leave you until I have done what I have spoken to you.”

Then Jacob awoke from his sleep and said, “Surely the LORD is in this place, and I did not know it.” And he was afraid and said, “How awesome is this place! This is none other than the house of God, and this is the gate of heaven!” Genesis 28:10-17

Yes, God has promised to send His angels before His children and to protect and bless them and be with them wherever they go and to be an enemy to their  enemies and an adversary to their adversaries. His word is unchanging:

“Behold, I send an Angel before you to keep you in the way and to bring you into the place which I have prepared.   “Beware of Him and obey His voice; do not provoke Him, for He will not pardon your transgressions; for My name is in Him.

“But if you indeed obey His voice and do all that I speak, then I will be an enemy to your enemies and an adversary to your adversaries. “For My Angel will go before you and bring you in to the Amorites and the Hittites and the Perizzites and the Canaanites and the Hivites and the Jebusites; and I will cut them off.

“You shall not bow down to their gods, nor serve them, nor do according to their works; but you shall utterly overthrow them and completely break down their sacred pillars.  “So you shall serve the LORD your God, and He will bless your bread and your water. And I will take sickness away from the midst of you.  “No one shall suffer miscarriage or be barren in your land; I will fulfill the number of your days.  “I will send My fear before you, I will cause confusion among all the people to whom you come, and will make all your enemies turn their backs to you. Exodus 23:20-27

Just because men don’t see God’s angels doesn’t mean they are not real. The bible in Hebrews 13:2 tell us ‘Do not forget to entertain strangers, for by so doing some have unwittingly entertained angels.’ Men also underestimate the damage that one angel of the Lord can do when he defends God’s people.  One angel of the LORD went out, and killed in the camp of the Assyrians one hundred and eighty-five thousand men. The bible records:

“Therefore thus says the LORD concerning the king of Assyria:  ‘He shall not come into this city,  Nor shoot an arrow there,  Nor come before it with shield,  Nor build a siege mound against it.  By the way that he came,  By the same shall he return;  And he shall not come into this city,’  Says the LORD.  ‘For I will defend this city, to save it  For My own sake and for My servant David’s sake.’ ”

And it came to pass on a certain night that the angel of the LORD went out, and killed in the camp of the Assyrians one hundred and eighty-five thousand; and when people arose early in the morning, there were the corpses-all dead. So Sennacherib king of Assyria departed and went away, returned home, and remained at Nineveh.

Now it came to pass, as he was worshiping in the temple of Nisroch his god, that his sons Adrammelech and Sharezer struck him down with the sword; and they escaped into the land of Ararat. Then Esarhaddon his son reigned in his place. 2 Kings 19:32-37

It’s the responsibility of angels to protected God’s anointed servants just like an angel protected and delivered Daniel in the lions den’s. But angels don’t protect evil and wicked ones!  God’s word is unchanging:

And when he came to the den, he cried out with a lamenting voice to Daniel. The king spoke, saying to Daniel, “Daniel, servant of the living God, has your God, whom you serve continually, been able to deliver you from the lions?”

Then Daniel said to the king, “O king, live forever! “My God sent His angel and shut the lions’ mouths, so that they have not hurt me, because I was found innocent before Him; and also, O king, I have done no wrong before you.”

Then the king was exceedingly glad for him, and commanded that they should take Daniel up out of the den. So Daniel was taken up out of the den, and no injury whatever was found on him, because he believed in his God.   And the king gave the command, and they brought those men who had accused Daniel, and they cast them into the den of lions-them, their children, and their wives; and the lions overpowered them, and broke all their bones in pieces before they ever came to the bottom of the den. Daniel 6:21-24

Let those be put to shame and brought to dishonor Who seek after my life; Let those be turned back and brought to confusion Who plot my hurt.  Let them be like chaff before the wind,  And let the angel of the LORD chase them. Let their way be dark and slippery, And let the angel of the LORD pursue them. Psalm 35:4-6

This poor man cried out, and the LORD heard him, And saved him out of all his troubles.  The angel of the LORD encamps all around those who fear Him, And delivers them. Psalm 34:6-7

Because you have made the LORD, who is my refuge, Even the Most High, your dwelling place, No evil shall befall you, Nor shall any plague come near your dwelling; For He shall give His angels charge over you,  To keep you in all your ways. Psalm 91:11
