“There is the presence of the spirit of prophecy, stretching out His wings over His people to keep them amidst the impact of God's righteous judgments and to bring them sheltered to a new destination, says the spirit of the prophet (cf. Exodus 19:4 i.c.w. Deuteronomy 32:11)!
I position you in the centre of My prophetic anointing to reveal to you the difference of what it means to be under My wings and on My wings, says the LORD!
Your words align with My words so that you speak out the revelatory content of My speaking and there is a loud crash as the yoke of darkness breaks (cf. Isaiah 9:4-5 i.c.w. Isaiah 10:27)!
It is the presence of My Word that accompanies the loud crash followed by the fire (cf. Jeremiah 23:29)!
I teach you what it means to govern in the centre of My testimony and to experience the dimension of My Son who sits at My right hand!
It is the place where I meet you with the power of My remembrance in order to respond according to it, says the LORD (cf. Exodus 28:12 i.c.w. Deuteronomy 33:12; Malachi 3:16)!
The power of the remembrance of God leads to the fact that you receive an inner, deep certainty about belonging to the LORD alone!
You encounter the mercy of God, which makes you realize what it means to live in the sonship of Christ! The divine mercy is accompanied by a clear contrast! This contrast serves to make you come to the realization of the truth that it was right to live and hold on to the righteousness of God through Christ Jesus despite all adversities in the past until today (cf. Malachi 3:17-18)!
There is the loud call of the eagle that makes you understand the ‘exit’ to live in a new dimension of the presence of the Spirit of God (cf. Revelation 8:13a)! It is the presence of the breath of God that makes you rise anew and walk in Him, says the prophet’s spirit (cf. Genesis 2:7 i.c.w. Galatians 5:16a)!
There is one for whom the word is that 'you do not have because you do not ask,' and another for the one who has but has not asked for what he now has- and to both of them I, the Living One, will show My grace as they serve Me!"”
Amen und Amen.

As the people of God, we are encouraged more than ever to recognize Jesus Christ as the Word of God in the facet in our time as He wants to reveal Himself to us. This type of manifestation can initially startle us to call us out in our current environment and move forward with Him in the dimension of the Spirit (cf. Matthew 14:25-29).
Matthew 14:25-29:
25 Shortly before dawn Jesus went out to them, walking on the lake.
26 When the disciples saw him walking on the lake, they were terrified. ‘It’s a ghost,’ they said, and cried out in fear.
27 But Jesus immediately said to them: ‘Take courage! It is I. Don’t be afraid.’
28 ‘Lord, if it’s you,’ Peter replied, ‘tell me to come to you on the water.’
29 ‘Come,’ he said. Then Peter got down out of the boat, walked on the water and came towards Jesus.
Taking Up Residence of the Word of God and the New Way of Communication
Jesus Christ as the Word of God wants to meet us in a new way and take up residence in us in this facet. This process is accompanied by a new kind of communication that can be frightening at first, similar to what the disciples experienced in the boat and also Joshua before he conquered the city of Jericho with the people of Israel.
At that time, the LORD appeared to him in the form of the living Word of God, so Joshua was working with a question to find out if the facet was of a kind or hostile nature (cf. Joshua 5:13).
Joshua 5:13:
13 Now when Joshua was near Jericho, he looked up and saw a man standing in front of him with a drawn sword in his hand. Joshua went up to him and asked, ‘Are you for us or for our enemies?’
In 1 Samuel 25:1ff. we can find a principle of God’s approach that alerts us to the fact that a type of prophetic communication was drawing to a close. Samuel has passed away, so that the focus was on the executive royal dynamic of God’s Word represented by king David.
1 Samuel 25:1:
1 Now Samuel died, and all Israel assembled and mourned for him; and they buried him at his home in Ramah. Then David moved down into the Desert of Paran (Note: Maon).
It says in the above scripture that David went into the wilderness of Maon and this means ‘dwelling place, habitation’, which points to the importance of holiness and separation as well as intimate fellowship with the Father in Christ Jesus.
Jesus said that in the house of His Father are many dwelling places and He is preparing a place for us. Here, a high importance is placed on the true love for Jesus Christ, which leads to the intensification of the Father’s presence and sonship in the habitation assigned by God (cf. John 14:2-3.23).
John 14:2-3.23:
2 My Father’s house has many rooms; if that were not so, would I have told you that I am going there to prepare a place for you?
3 And if I go and prepare a place for you, I will come back and take you to be with me that you also may be where I am. …
23 Jesus replied, ‘Anyone who loves me will obey my teaching. My Father will love them, and we will come to them and make our home with them. …’
Based on these scriptures, it reveals that love for Jesus Christ is expressed in obedience to His Word. It is essential that especially in times when we may experience blessings or favour in our economy from God, we respond according to His desire when He approaches us with His presence.
In this, it is crucial to pay attention to the guidance of the Holy Spirit.
The Foolishness of Nabal and the Glory of Abigail
We can learn this from the story of Nabal with his wife Abigail.
Nabal (Note: means ‘fool, foolish’) acted from a foolish and wicked attitude of heart. His wife Abigail (Note: means ‘My father is joy.’), on the other hand, acted on him in wisdom and partly without his knowledge.
It is said of Abigail that she was a woman of understanding and beauty, which in this context should sensitize us to the guidance and presence of the Holy Spirit.
Nabal was blessed in his economy and protected by the righteous guidance and government of king David. This is evident, among other things, from the location of his business, which was ‘Carmel’, meaning ‘fruit garden’ (cf. 1 Samuel 25:2-3).
1 Samuel 25:2-3:
2 A certain man in Maon, who had property there at Carmel, was very wealthy. He had a thousand goats and three thousand sheep, which he was shearing in Carmel.
3 His name was Nabal and his wife’s name was Abigail. She was an intelligent and beautiful woman, but her husband was surly and mean in his dealings – he was a Calebite.
Despite his evil heart attitude, Nabal was blessed for a long time in his life and you can assume that it was because of the kindness of God and his wife Abigail, who continually ministered before God with understanding and wisdom in her assigned glory (cf. Romans 2:4 i.c.w. Proverbs 12:4a).
Romans 2:4:
4 Or do you show contempt for the riches of his kindness, forbearance and patience, not realising that God’s kindness is intended to lead you to repentance?
Proverbs 12:4a:
4a A wife of noble character is her husband’s crown, …
Abigail possessed a God-given strength because she recognized God as the source of joy and lived in it (cf. Nehemiah 8:10c).
Nehemiah 8:10c:
… 10c ‘Do not grieve, for the joy of the Lord is your strength.’
As mentioned earlier, there was a specific time in Nabal’s life when he was visited by the presence of king David in the form of ten emissaries who required him to bless the king. This occurred during a feast time, that of the shearing of the sheep, which corresponded to the time of Nabal’s economic prosperity.
Prior to this, ‘the royal shield’ was active over Nabal and his economy for many years, and preserved it (cf. 1 Samuel 25:4-8).
1 Samuel 25:4-8:
4 While David was in the wilderness, he heard that Nabal was shearing sheep.
5 So he sent ten young men and said to them, ‘Go up to Nabal at Carmel and greet him in my name.
6 Say to him: “Long life to you! Good health to you and your household! And good health to all that is yours!
7 ‘ “Now I hear that it is sheep-shearing time. When your shepherds were with us, we did not ill-treat them, and the whole time they were at Carmel nothing of theirs was missing.
8 Ask your own servants and they will tell you. Therefore be favourable towards my men, since we come at a festive time. Please give your servants and your son David whatever you can find for them.” ’
Contrary to all the protection and economic blessings in the past, Nabal decided to deny king David’s messengers his gift, which David asked for.
On the basis of the ten messengers of David that were sent out, it shows that David as a symbol for Jesus Christ stretched out his hand towards Nabal, since the Hebrew letter ‘Yod’ has the numerical value ‘10’ and is connected with the ‘hand’.
The Extended Hand of God and His Love
It was God who reached out to Nabal through David to continue to bless him, however it was now necessary for Nabal to break with greed and materialism in his life in order to enter into a new dynamic of God’s blessing.
Unfortunately, Nabal decided against this and refused to give David his ‘hand’. In this we can see the word from Isaiah 65:2 i.c.w. Romans 10:21, where it says, ‘that God stretched out His hands all the day long unto His people, who were disobedient and obstinate.’
Considering the time of the shearing of the sheep in a spiritual context, it reveals Jesus’ willingness to sacrifice, who while suffering, like a lamb, did not open His mouth before His shearer (cf. Isaiah 53:7).
Isaiah 53:7:
7 He was oppressed and afflicted, yet he did not open his mouth; he was led like a lamb to the slaughter, and as a sheep before its shearers is silent, so he did not open his mouth.
And this clearly shows that the shearing of sheep is the window of expression of God’s love. For it is said that God loved the world by giving His only begotten Son to make it possible for man to receive eternal life through faith in Him (cf. John 3:16).
John 3:16:
16 For God so loved the world that he gave his one and only Son, that whoever believes in him shall not perish but have eternal life.
Based on Job 33:28-30, we know that there are basically two to three times of God’s visitation in a person’s life to choose eternal life in Christ Jesus as well as to walk in the light of the living.
Job 33:28-30:
“… 28 God has delivered me from going down to the pit, and I shall live to enjoy the light of life.”
29 ‘God does all these things to a person – twice, even three times – 30 to turn them back from the pit, that the light of life may shine on them.
This time is to be correctly discerned and responded accordingly toward the love of God or His outstretched saving hand, not rejecting Him who speaks (cf. Hebrews 4:6-7).
Hebrews 4:6-7:
6 Therefore since it still remains for some to enter that rest, and since those who formerly had the good news proclaimed to them did not go in because of their disobedience, 7 God again set a certain day, calling it ‘Today’. This he did when a long time later he spoke through David, as in the passage already quoted: ‘Today, if you hear his voice, do not harden your hearts.’
Unfortunately, Nabal acted foolishly in rejecting king David’s messengers in the form of the ten messengers (cf. 1 Samuel 25:9-12).
1 Samuel 25:9-12:
9 When David’s men arrived, they gave Nabal this message in David’s name. Then they waited.
10 Nabal answered David’s servants, ‘Who is this David? Who is this son of Jesse? Many servants are breaking away from their masters these days.
11 Why should I take my bread and water, and the meat I have slaughtered for my shearers, and give it to men coming from who knows where?’
12 David’s men turned round and went back. When they arrived, they reported every word.
The reaction of Nabal had the consequence that now the presence of the king was not accompanied with a greeting of peace, as it had been before, but with the righteous dynamics of the Word of God. This was accompanied with judgment, as David girded himself with a sword and was escorted by four hundred men. The numerical value ‘400’ is associated with the Hebrew letter ‘Thaw’, which is the last letter of the Hebrew alphabet and represents, among other things, a ‘cross’.
1 Samuel 25:13:
13 David said to his men, ‘Each of you strap on your sword!’ So they did, and David strapped his on as well. About four hundred men went up with David, while two hundred stayed with the supplies.
The Demand of the King
From this it is clear that when Christ moves in the facet as king and enters our spiritual temporary time in this facet or authority to demand something from us, we should respond in obedience honourably to Him.
It is like the fig tree that Jesus cursed when He was hungry after being publicly proclaimed as king in Jerusalem. The fig tree bore no fruit because it was not the time for figs. Because of this, Jesus cursed that fig tree (cf. Mark 11:12-14).
Mark 11:12-14.20:
12 The next day as they were leaving Bethany, Jesus was hungry.
13 Seeing in the distance a fig-tree in leaf, he went to find out if it had any fruit. When he reached it, he found nothing but leaves, because it was not the season for figs.
14 Then he said to the tree, ‘May no-one ever eat fruit from you again.’ And his disciples heard him say it. …
20 In the morning, as they went along, they saw the fig-tree withered from the roots.
This may sound startling, but based on the Word of God we may know that we, as God’s people, are trees of righteousness that always bear fruit because we are nourished by the flow of the Holy Spirit (cf. Isaiah 61:3 i.c.w. Jeremiah 17:8; Revelation 22:1-2).
Isaiah 61:3:
3 and provide for those who grieve in Zion – to bestow on them a crown of beauty instead of ashes, the oil of joy instead of mourning, and a garment of praise instead of a spirit of despair. They will be called oaks of righteousness, a planting of the Lord for the display of his splendour.
Jeremiah 17:8:
‘… 8 They will be like a tree planted by the water that sends out its roots by the stream. It does not fear when heat comes; its leaves are always green. It has no worries in a year of drought and never fails to bear fruit.’
Revelation 22:1-2:
1 Then the angel showed me the river of the water of life, as clear as crystal, flowing from the throne of God and of the Lamb 2 down the middle of the great street of the city. On each side of the river stood the tree of life, bearing twelve crops of fruit, yielding its fruit every month. And the leaves of the tree are for the healing of the nations.
The presence of the king is accompanied by the spirit of the fear of the LORD, which leads us to respond toward the king in the wisdom of God (cf. Proverbs 9:10).
Proverbs 9:10:
10 The fear of the Lord is the beginning of wisdom, and knowledge of the Holy One is understanding.
Walking in the wisdom of God, includes living in the cross of the king of the Jews, who is the Faithful and True, the King of kings, LORD of lords, and the Word of God (cf. Revelation 19:11-16).
Revelation 19:11-16:
11 I saw heaven standing open and there before me was a white horse, whose rider is called Faithful and True. With justice he judges and wages war.
12 His eyes are like blazing fire, and on his head are many crowns. He has a name written on him that no-one knows but he himself.
13 He is dressed in a robe dipped in blood, and his name is the Word of God.
14 The armies of heaven were following him, riding on white horses and dressed in fine linen, white and clean.
15 Coming out of his mouth is a sharp sword with which to strike down the nations. ‘He will rule them with an iron sceptre.’ He treads the winepress of the fury of the wrath of God Almighty.
16 On his robe and on his thigh he has this name written: King of kings and lord of lords.
It is about wisdom that God seeks from us as His people, which is shown in our application of knowledge in humility, thanksgiving, obedience and giving in our lives.
The only ‘foolishness’ in which we are permitted to walk as God’s people is in the foolishness of preaching, which embraces the message of the cross and is foolishness to those who are perishing. To us, who love Christ it is God’s power (cf. 1 Corinthians 1:18-21.25).
1 Corinthians 1:18-21.25:
18 For the message of the cross is foolishness to those who are perishing, but to us who are being saved it is the power of God.
19 For it is written: ‘I will destroy the wisdom of the wise; the intelligence of the intelligent I will frustrate.’
20 Where is the wise person? Where is the teacher of the law? Where is the philosopher of this age? Has not God made foolish the wisdom of the world?
21 For since in the wisdom of God the world through its wisdom did not know him, God was pleased through the foolishness of what was preached to save those who believe. …
25 For the foolishness of God is wiser than human wisdom, and the weakness of God is stronger than human strength.
Thus, let us remain in recognition and intimacy to the Holy Spirit, even if the reflection of circumstances should lead us to believe that we cannot share our gifts. The wisdom of God finds ways for us to avert disaster from us and to experience favour by pursuing good.
The LORD Himself, who dwells in us, bears witness in us to the grace and wisdom of His leading, while we are dependent on the eternal kingship of Christ in all things of life.
James 3:13-18:
13 Who is wise and understanding among you? Let them show it by their good life, by deeds done in the humility that comes from wisdom.
14 But if you harbour bitter envy and selfish ambition in your hearts, do not boast about it or deny the truth.
15 Such ‘wisdom’ does not come down from heaven but is earthly, unspiritual, demonic.
16 For where you have envy and selfish ambition, there you find disorder and every evil practice.
17 But the wisdom that comes from heaven is first of all pure; then peace-loving, considerate, submissive, full of mercy and good fruit, impartial and sincere.
18 Peacemakers who sow in peace reap a harvest of righteousness.
Amen and Amen.

In order to be able to work with angels, it takes a lot to get involved. To start with it is vital to know the spiritual principle according to God’s word. Genesis 1 states that the Spirit of God hovered or vibrated over the waters while waiting for the manifestation of the Word of God to become active in the light of God (cf. Genesis 1:2-4a).
Genesis 1:2-4a:
2 Now the earth was formless and empty, darkness was over the surface of the deep, and the Spirit of God was hovering over the waters.
3 And God said, “Let there be light,” and there was light.
4a God saw that the light was good, …
In the book of Psalms and the letter to the Hebrews we can also see that angels are winds, and that the presence of God moves with the wind also (cf. Hebrews 1:7 i.c.w. 2 Samuel 5:24; Psalm 18:10).
Hebrews 1:7:
7 In speaking of the angels he says, (cf. Psalm 104:4): “He makes his angels spirits, and his servants flames of fire.”
2 Samuel 5:24:
24 As soon as you hear the sound of marching in the tops of the poplar trees, move quickly, because that will mean the LORD has gone out in front of you to strike the Philistine army.”
Psalm 18:10:
10 He mounted the cherubim and flew; he soared on the wings of the wind.
The ‘wind’ is the spiritual impact of God moving in concealment, and saints can perceive it with a spiritual ear (cf. John 3:8).
John 3:8:
8 The wind blows wherever it pleases. You hear its sound, but you cannot tell where it comes from or where it is going. So it is with everyone born of the Spirit.
On the basis of these scriptures, we recognize a spiritual principle that is characterized by the presence of spirit (Note: wind/air/breath), water (Note: ‘carrying element’ of God’s presence), and the living word (Note: sound) to create (Note: light) in the ‘’erets realm’ (Note: spiritual realm in the earth).
Because God is the Father of lights and there is no darkness in Him, His angels are filled with His shining presence, so that you might also call them light-winds (cf. 1 John 1:5 i.c.w. James 1:17).
1 John 1:1-5:
5 This is the message we have heard from him and declare to you: God is light; in him there is no darkness at all.
James 1:17:
17 Every good and perfect gift is from above, coming down from the Father of the heavenly lights, who does not change like shifting shadows.
Therefore many people, when discerning angels and viewing this in a prophetic context, describe them as being connected with various forms and colors shaped from light.
The angels of God are ministering spirits who are assigned by the LORD to serve amongst others the people of God (see Hebrews 1:14).
Hebrews 1:14:
14 Are not all angels ministering spirits sent to serve those who will inherit salvation?
Of Angels and Horses
Furthermore, with regard to angels in the form of winds, they are also synonymous with horses, as the book of Zechariah reveals in chapter 6 (cf. Zechariah 6:2-5).
Zechariah 6:2-5:
2 The first chariot had red horses, the second black,
3 the third white, and the fourth dappled – all of them powerful.
4 I asked the angel who was speaking to me, “What are these, my lord?”
5 The angel answered me, “These are the four spirits [or winds] of heaven, going out from standing in the presence of the Lord of the whole world. …”
Therefore, when wanting to work with angels it is beneficial to know just how horses behave.

=> One of the remarkable behaviors of horses, among others, is that when they are on a ranch, for example, they always look for an open gate and move there to enter the realm of greater freedom.
In this example the open gate equals the humble expectations of a saint, who according to God’s word, respects the ministry of angels and asks in faith for the ability to discern them (cf. James 1:6a).
James 1:6a:
6a But when you ask, you must believe and not doubt, …
Horses are creatures who stick close to people they know and who care for them; likewise the angels: Angels stay more where their service is welcome and where they are not rejected because of unbelief, violence/aggression or by rebellious behavior (cf. Exodus 23:20-23).
Exodus 23:20-23:
20 See, I am sending an angel ahead of you to guard you along the way and to bring you to the place I have prepared.
21 Pay attention to him and listen to what he says. Do not rebel against him; he will not forgive your rebellion, since my Name is in him.
22 If you listen carefully to what he says and do all that I say, I will be an enemy to your enemies and will oppose those who oppose you.
23 My angel will go ahead of you and bring you into the land of the Amorites, Hittites, Perizzites, Canaanites, Hivites and Jebusites, and I will wipe them out.
The recognition of the ministry of angels by faith leads to great results in the lives of saints.
Horses have a so-called soft spot which is called withers and is situated where the saddle normally goes. This is the area of the horse the mother gently caressed when it was a foal.
Because of this affectionate treatment of the foal by the mother, love and security are conveyed to the foal. This soft spot in horses allows to give and receive tenderness. By this we can see that when we as people of God move in His tender mercies, it encourages the angels of the LORD to increasingly get active under the authority of God’s will and according to His plan for our lives. <= (Note: Text set in ‘=>’ is based on an explanation from the book, ‘Working with Angels’ by Steven Brooks; paraphrased)
The Term ‘Angel’ and Walking in Holiness
=> An angel is a heavenly/spiritual being, divine messenger, sent as an agent, ambassador, or emissary to conduct business on behalf of God in the affairs of men. May be stationed as a territorial ruler or despot in countries and nations as their spiritual power and authority.
The Hebrew word for angel is ‘mal’āk’ and means ‘messenger’. In the Greek it is ‘angelos’.They comprise the Creator’s ‘protocratic forces’ of creation. <= (Note: The text set in ‘=>’ is a part excerpt from the ‘Prophet’s Dictionary’ by Paula A. Price, PH.D.; page 47)
=> In the oldest Old Testament writings ‘angel’ means something like ‘messenger of God’. If the closer definition ‘angel of God’ or ‘angel of the LORD’ is used, it is often meant that it is the LORD Himself who shows Himself in human form or speaks to people in a revelatory way.
The name ‘angel’ is also used for the heavenly beings that belong to God’s environment. God is thought of as a king; the angels form His ‘court’, which praises the glory of God and carries out His will without restriction.
According to the Jewish view, angels once delivered the Torah to Moses at Sinai. In Acts 7:38.53 this idea is taken up positively. In the New Testament, angels appear as messengers of God (cf. Luke 1:26-38), but also as heavenly representatives of earthly communities, who at the same time have the task of a guardian angel (cf. Revelation 2:1-3.22; Matthew 18:10; Acts 12:15).
In addition, there are angelic powers hostile to God, evil celestial or elemental spirits (Note: ‘powers of the world’ = of the cosmos), which can receive worship from people or become dangerous to them. Christ has defeated these powers (cf. Galatians 4:3-5; Colossians 2:8-10). <= (Note: The text set in ‘=>’ is a part excerpt from the CD-ROM Bible Edition Luther Bible 1984.)
We can say from personal experience that angels are attracted by the devotion of saints to God, the Heavenly Father, as well as by their walking in the love of God and in the truth of His word (Note: Greek, ‘agąpē’) to contribute more light or revelation.
=> Unfortunately, some believers in Christ Jesus fill their minds with void movies, computer games or media that are characterized by violence, perversion, aggression, roughness, and impurity that are not pleasing to God. These negative influences contribute to the fact that the believers in question perceive the guidance of the Holy Spirit or even the angels inaccurately or not at all. These impurities pollute the spiritual waters of the believer’s soul or spirit.
The nature of the Holy Spirit is holy, it means that also the angels are sent by God from this realm of holiness. However, if a saint in Christ allows his human spirit to become defiled, then the doorway between the Holy Spirit and the believer’s heart is blocked by foulness. This results in a blurred spiritual vision. <= (Note: Text set in ‘=>’ is based on an explanation from the book ‘Working with Angels’ by Steven Brooks; paraphrased)
Saints, however, who live in close relationship with the Holy Spirit and advance in purity of spirit in the intimacy with Holy Spirit, will discern angelic movements through enlightened eyes of the heart, and work with the angels. This cooperation results in greater successes with God (cf. Hebrews 12:14).
Hebrews 12:14:
14 Make every effort to live in peace with everyone and to be holy; without holiness no one will see the LORD.
Just when saints live in true love and God’s truth and speak good words (Note: from/with a renewed mind), that are like sweet water (cf. James 3:10-11), angels use this presence to convey the truth spoken by God to the spirits of the saints on earth from outside, which the Holy Spirit can then decode in their spirits (cf. John 16:13).
James 3:10-11:
10 Out of the same mouth come praise and cursing. My brothers and sisters, this should not be.
11 Can both fresh water and salt water flow from the same spring?
John 16:13:
13 But when he, the Spirit of truth, comes, he will guide you into all the truth. He will not speak on his own; he will speak only what he hears, and he will tell you what is yet to come.
Therefore, daily walk in sanctification and sincere obedience to the Holy Spirit are prerequisites to perceive angels and work together with them.
This way of life includes the trusting surrender under the sovereign guidance of God, which increases in the heart of a saint in the inner man where one breaks away from one’s own ideas. Furthermore, sanctification also results in a brokenness that leads disciples into that truly (Note: with all their heart) humble and meek attitude of life and heart in dealing with discipleship and opens access to intimacy with the LORD, which results in an increasing ease in dealing with anointing as well as assigned responsibility (cf. Matthew 11:28-30).
Matthew 11:28-30:
28 “Come to me, all you who are weary and burdened, and I will give you rest.
29 Take my yoke upon you and learn from me, for I am gentle and humble in heart, and you will find rest for your souls.
30 For my yoke is easy and my burden is light.”
Unclean spirits, on the other hand, move in the spiritually desolate areas of ‘Asasel’, which means the place of separation from God, to make destructive ‘plans of return’ with the aim of binding people or bringing them down (cf. Luke 11:24 i.c.w. Isaiah 34:11-15; Leviticus 16:10).
Luke 11:24:
24 When an impure spirit comes out of a person, it goes through arid places seeking rest and does not find it. Then it says, ‘I will return to the house I left.’
Isaiah 34:11-15:
11 The desert owl and screech owl will possess it; the great owl and the raven will nest there. God will stretch out over Edom the measuring line of chaos and the plumb line of desolation.
12 Her nobles will have nothing there to be called a kingdom, all her princes will vanish away.
13 Thorns will overrun her citadels, nettles and brambles her strongholds. She will become a haunt for jackals, a home for owls.
14 Desert creatures will meet with hyenas, and wild goats will bleat to each other; there the night creatures (note: Lilith) will also lie down and find for themselves places of rest.
15 The owl will nest there and lay eggs, she will hatch them, and care for her young under the shadow of her wings; there also the falcons will gather, each with its mate.
Leviticus 16:10:
10 But the goat chosen by lot as the scapegoat [Asasel] shall be presented alive before the LORD to be used for making atonement by sending it into the wilderness as a scapegoat [Asasel].
It is therefore no coincidence that when Jesus encountered the possessed Gerasener, he instructed the demonic horde to come out of the Gerasener and sent them into the bodies of pigs so that they were judged in the water.
The Realm of Water and Angels
In this context, we consider the realm of water as the realm of God’s angels, who are the bearers of His presence. And here it is no coincidence that there is also ‘water’ before the throne of God, which goes hand in hand with His covenant and His governing presence (cf. Revelation 4:6a).
Revelation 4:6a:
6 Also in front of the throne there was what looked like a sea of glass, clear as crystal. …
The ‘function’ of the angels, namely to be ‘messengers’ (Hebrew ‘mal’āk – מַלְאָךְ), is connected to the Hebrew letter ‘Mem’, which pictographically represents a ‘waterline’ or ‘surging water’.
In this regard, angels of God, as ministering spirits, bring forth their effect in spheres of individuals, assemblies, and regions due to the prayers of saints in order to establish the good that comes from the Father’s will. Angels bring supernatural access to the heavenly dimension into the realm of earthly life of people to stop evil and corruption through works of darkness, among others.
Another important key to getting in touch with the presence of angels and working with them is anchored in sincere hospitality (cf. Hebrew 13:2).
Hebrews 13:2:
2 Do not forget to show hospitality to strangers, for by so doing some people have shown hospitality to angels without knowing it.
Because hospitality is connected with uncertainty in regard to angelic presence, it may be helpful to ask the Holy Spirit to open the spiritual eyes of the heart, so that by the gift of discernment the presence, assignment and ministry of the angels can be discerned.
Amen and Amen.
In His Wisdom,
