Question of the Day
When Kenneth and Gloria started their journey of faith they had questions too—lots of them! So, we've compiled the most frequently asked questions by people like you—people who earnestly desire to find God's answers to the practical, real-life challenges of everyday living. We have a new question every day, so check back often!
Q: Is it true that a Christian can command his angels?
Yes! Angels are on assignment to minister for you.
Hebrews 1:14 declares that angels are servants sent to care for us. The Life Application Study Bible, New American Standard Bible, has the following to say about Hebrews 1:14:
“Angels are God’s messengers, spiritual beings created by God and under His authority (Colossians 1:16). They have several functions: serving believers (Hebrews1:14), protecting the helpless (Matthew 18:10), proclaiming God’s messages (Revelation 14:6-12), and executing God’s judgment (Acts 12:1-23; Revelation 20:1-3).”
Angels operate under the authority of Jesus (1 Peter 3:22), and one of their jobs is ministering to believers. Our responsibility is to make sure that we are doing the will of our Father and that we are putting His Word in our mouths. When we do this, Psalm 103:20 promises that angels carry out God’s commands and are obedient to His Word. They act as enforcers of the Word and will of God in our lives.
For further study on this subject, we recommend the “Angels on Assignment” teaching by Kenneth and Gloria Copeland.
