generally father Lord I thank you so much for even creating us in the first place he certainly didn't have to do that then we fell in came short of your glory you sent your son your only son to redeem us and the bias back we are yours twice over help us to never forget that we are not our own but we are yours as we go to our studying this week and weekend Lord let our time be fruitful Lord help us to learn not only how to be more faithful to you but Lord how to be more useful to your cause teaches how to proclaim you are marvelous like what we pray in Jesus name amen if you would please turn to the book of Luke we begin with Luke chapter eleven Chapter 11 setting the stage for our study and only give you an outline as you look at Luke chapter eleven of all that were going to be covering this weekend my goal is to be not so much a preacher as a teacher even though I love preaching and I hope to be engaging help you are interested in a topic with the most significant failing to be grounded in the Word of God is something clear something perhaps a new but not seeking to be original but seeking to be forceful and more than information hopefully the Lord through his Holy Spirit will give you the transformation of mind so that we can have the right vision for what the Lord is calling us to do I believe very sincerely that when Jesus prayed this model prayer is found in Luke chapter eleven but he wasn't being poetic but he wasn't being just using grand oratory of course it's a beautiful prayer we all know what I want to look at the specifics of it one particular aspect of it is that this course for the whole weekend Luke chapter eleven now it came to pass verse one now came to pass I was praying a certain place when he sees that one of his disciples said to him a loyalty just a prayer as John also taught his disciples so he said to them first to when you pray say our father in heaven hallowed be your name your kingdom come your will be done on earth as it is in heaven that's the entirety of the vermin Areva right now but that's all we do read the whole weekend notice that Jesus saying okay the model prayer the structure as you approach your heavenly father this should be the focus of your mind Lord how would be your name and of course name is synonymous throughout as the Scripture as his character his very being who he is imprisoned for his very being how would be your name muses your kingdom come and noticed he says you are well what you want to accomplish the task you have set before you are will be done on our as it is in heaven and I don't believe again that evening just merely poetically using rhetoric records I believe he is a very important point he saying Lord we want to see your kingdom is here so we ask that your will would be done here the same way that it's done there does that make sense and you are will be done on earth as it is in heaven so if we're going to honor and fulfill the prayer of Jesus on this are doing is working as well you know Lord 's bidding apparently it's incumbent upon us to understand how his work is done where in apparently have been in the model of ministry for the accomplishment of God 's will hear honor that your well maybe not on earth as it is in heaven so tonight we begin with the study of heaven study of heaven is a message entitled the ministering of angels how is the Lords work done in heaven it's supposed to be our model of how work is done each year we need to understand how it is done there what is God 's will how is that accomplished in heaven so that will be the goal of our study tonight is the study how the Lord 's will is done in heaven so we can apply to desert sojourn would be WYSIWYG to Revelation chapter four now there are many pictures of heaven in Scripture but perhaps none suits our purpose as does Revelation chapters four and five and we don't have time to do a complete study of this exhaustive exegesis but I want to give you the picture of what's happening in some verse one Revelation chapter four activist things I looked at was the apostle John writing from Patmos and behold a door standing open where in heaven and the first voice which I heard was like a trumpet speaking with me saying are here and I will show you things which must take place after this is a notice of these envisioned a doors open in heaven the boy says here I will show you things which common sense that if the Lord ever opened the door to heaven and says come here go and John followed back to Manchester immediately pursue I was in the spirit and behold the throne set in heaven and one sat on the throat feels that there is like a jasper sardius stone and appearance and there was a rainbow around the road and appears like an emerald first-floor around the throne were twenty four thrones around the problems I saw twenty four elders sitting clothed in white robes and had crowns of gold on their heads and from the throne proceeded like these thunderings and voices seven lamps of fire burning before the throne which are the seven spirits of God interested a little aside you won't find the term Holy Spirit in the Revelation twenty one seven spirits of the picture of the Holy Spirit in an and in the language of our legal number six before Lebron with this legacy and grab glasslike crystal and in the midst of the throne and around the throne were four living creatures live in front and back and he goes on to describe women notice would be singing for saving a rest day or night saying holy holy holy Lord God Almighty who was and is and is a common business picture of heaven you have the throne of God around it they are twenty four other thrones surrounding from there the four living creatures and all of them are giving praise to God you've got the body of the Holy Spirit in the twenty four elders are the four living creatures in Revelation five Jesus Christ enters the room as the Lamb who was slain victorious over Satan and of course that turns the entire courts of heaven surrounding him and we don't objectify the University Hellenistic in this role the four living creatures and the twenty four elders fell down before the Lamb each having a harp and golden bowls full of incidents which are the prayers of the saints and they sang a new song saying you are worthy to take the scroll and to open its seals for you were slain and you've redeemed us to God by your blood out of every tribe and fun people and nation a native priests kings and priests were God we shall reign on the earth and oftentimes we do a study of Revelation chapter four and Revelation chapter five we focus on the Trinity got the father God the son of the Holy Spirit the Godhead we focus on the four living creatures we focus on the twenty four elders have good discussions about their identity and become a symbol that the main points but I'd like us to continue now the verse eleven notice verse eleven of Revelation five there's another group represented that are out numbers every other being the dimension then I will verse eleven and I heard the voice of anyone Angel 's around the throne the living creatures and the elders of course there's the problem with four living creatures the twenty four elders put out there me on apparently there are many angels and it doesn't leave us again so that means several times and are not a lot and the number of them was ten thousand times ten thousand beginning registered night was ten thousand times ten thousand a lot I hope finals are coming up just around the corner a lot if I'm not mistaken of the hundred million ten thousand times ten thousand inevitably in the and thousands about ten thousand seven thousand and thousands and thousands out there beyond the central figures of the Godhead and the living creatures and elders there's losing rapeseed nearly countless number of angels so as we look at heaven we realize yes there is a central program of course God the father and the son and the Holy Spirit operates from the command center of the universe and of the four living creatures these angelic being submitted the twenty four elders in each other rolled each other place and their central to heaven but beyond them the mass majority of inhabitants inhabitants are not the Godhead are not a poorly driven not the point world there these literally millions of Angels have been instructed all of these angels in the book of Hebrews just to the left just a bit Hebrews chapter one when he describes the ministry of Jesus the author favorably be a possible call pairs of Christ's ministry I've been to the Angels and its superiority to the Angels chapter one unnoticed verse seven makes an interesting statement we learn what an angel actually is what's the purpose with the role with their mission the receptor one and verse seventy is quoting here Psalm one oh four by the way and of the angels he says who makes his angels spirits is ministers a flame of fire notice of Islamist and here the author of Hebrews invokes that argument that line of reasoning that God 's angels are his ministers is an equivalence between Angel and administer effective meeting and more explicit in verse fourteen of the same chapter Hebrews chapter one verse fourteen as he's looking at the role of Angels is it are they not all ministering spirits sent forth to minister for those who will inherit salvation so in the courts of heaven there are literally millions of Angels who are ministers for God who are sent forth to minister that for those who will inherit salvation they are not soldiers they are with the rubber meets the road of the Ministry of heaven they are the executors of God 's will for those who will be safe they are his ministers according to Scripture the ministry of angels and also back to the Old Testament you would Genesis chapter twenty eight Genesis chapter twenty eight will start the first ten and were told that our messages need to be more in the line of Bible studies and solidity studying Scripture tonight to give us a solid framework of how ministry is accomplished in heaven and what we on earth can learn from that model Genesis chapter twenty eight starting with verse ten Jacob went up from there she then went towards Haran soon came to a certain place and stay there all night because the sunset and he took one of the stones of that place and put it on his head anyway down in a place to sleep then he dreams and behold a ladder was set up on the earth and its top reach to heaven then there are the angels of God were ascending and descending on it to get the picture he lays down as a stone under his head his ability goes to sleep in the sun a second during his sleep he has his dream of vision is given to him although great ladder and the only things were told there's a few things were told about this letter first of all it goes all the way down to the earth and other dangled from heaven some distance to jump it comes right down to the ground but it also goes all the way up into heaven so it connects me with heaven all the way down in all the way up and all along this latter it says the Angels are ascending and descending ascending needs to go up the sending music on down to all along the latter there's transition Angels up in the technical theological terms the going up and down the ladder all the time going all in all the way up to heaven that's the entirety of the dream big ladder goes down to earth all into heaven with Angels just going up and down on it and I believe if I'm not mistaken at the last reference to the latter and filling into the New Testament we go to John chapter one is find out what that letter me know many of you understand that the latter is but we want to make sure that is still in the Scriptures John chapter one here Jesus Christ is gathering his first disciples and will start with verse forty five John chapter one starting the first forty five Cynthia Philip found Nathaniel and send him we have found him of whom Moses in the law and also the prophets wrote machines is a natural son of Joseph and Nathaniel said in anything good come out of Nazareth you can tell that Philip was quite excited and the manual is rather unimpressed and what a brilliant report by Philip Tillotson and him come and see the argumentation node defensiveness no just come and check it out for yourself so verse forty seven Jesus on Nathaniel coming toward him and said to him said of him behold an Israelite indeed in whom is no disease that we doesn't always have a big announcement like that of pronouncement about his disciples he doesn't find limited but here he knows the mindset of Nathaniel Estes coming so he goes and had off the path noted in the blood that a copy will an Israelite indeed in whom there's noticing first forty eight things that the party know me Jesus answered and said to him behold before Philip called you when you're under the century I saw you remember earlier the figtree were studying reading praying I wasn't there when I saw you I wish there were more people would like Nathaniel West 's forty ninth annual incidence and him Rabbi he was you and the king of Israel and you can almost imagine she is labeled that was incredibly easy that's fantastic I'd look at Jesus sarcastically I would say show Morris response to Jesus answered them because I said I saw you under the fig tree the William at all it's a he will see greater things than these accepting everything is not saying the bladder to see you walking lifting and no life in this and he said that most assuredly I say to you hereafter you shall see heaven open and the angels of God ascending and descending upon and instead of saying a ladder he says the Son of Man me I am that things from the dream I am that latter but I want you to notice that the role of the Angels is still central to that latter so the Angels a week ascending and descending upon me energy as we go through and explain I am the door I am the gate I was away no man comes the father but by me he repeatedly comes back to sleep the only way to get from here to there is Vietnamese but notice that the witness that access to have been has Angels ascending and descending upon it why would that be central in the Old Testament and New Testament to the ministry of Christ as our intercessor between heaven and are comes back to bed again will I believe it's because the Angels play a more central role that often we give them credit the Angels are the foot soldiers and executors of God 's will in the courts of heaven let's continue this thing for instance engine is definitely can think of different times angels of been involved as a quick survey Genesis chapter nineteen when Sodom and Gomorrah were to be judged and destroyed Genesis nineteen records is that it was an verse one says now the two angels came to Sodom in the evening and Lot was sitting in the gate of Sodom and is he going to reuse the Angels were ministering to these who were trying to inherit salvation the other one explaining what happened the other ones urging the other ones waiting and literally pulling them out of clotting the more it was the Angels were doing the work of God 's sake was the minister 's minister Daniel chapter six six another illustration of this Daniel and his older age has to face with a as a deal with the religious persecution legislation foisted upon him by jealous cohorts and Daniel chapter six when Daniel has been thrown into the lions den you see hear but will start with personally eighteen now the king went into his house and spent the night of fasting and no musicians were Bob Horton also has sleep when front of that meeting also rosemary early in the morning and went in haste to the den of lions and when he came and then he cried out a lamenting voice to Daniel McCain spoke saying to Daniel Daniel servant of the living God has healed our God whom you serve continually be able to deliver you from alliance notice you clearly puts the responsibility on God of Danielson it is a visiting God doing in music Daniel has your God on this thing has God done at verse twenty one then Daniel said to the king okay live forever my God what is there since his angel and shut the lives nonetheless he puts the responsibility satellite map of what was this vehicle of ministry the Angels got delegated authority got the Angel and Angel shot alliance amount of my God sent his angel and shut the lions now so they are not hurt me because I was found innocent before him also and you okay and I have done no wrong before you know I love verse twenty three it is for this vineyard is really cool now the king was exceedingly glad for any command that they should take Daniel up out of thin which apparently is no violation of the law the Medes and Persians currently there has never been an instance within a rather do have you come out of the lion 's den the law only said you had to go in so I can imagine entering is not a restlessness is like okay coming in between one nine one eight this is the network and if not I have fulfilled my obligation he comes out or some other individuals took his place but it's a different sermon with the Lord Savior Daniel but through his servants the Angels his ministers Psalm ninety one attacks were very familiar with I would imagine were very familiar with if not I'd love to teach at United 's beautiful Psalm ninety one starting with verse ten the promises given to the psalmist with quote no evil shall befall you nor shall any plague come near your dwelling for he shall give his wife angels charge over you notice he's been again who has the original charges God learning the exact charge over to his angels for he shall give his angels charge over you to keep you in all your ways in their hands they shall bear you up lest you dash your foot against a stone course on ninety one is a beautiful promise to us but it was also used in twice with by the devil upon Jesus himself as the Scriptures say finding Simpson with presumption but it's fascinating that God will keep charges through his angels Chapter four Jesus himself was a recipient of the ministry of angels Matthew chapter four when Jesus had the spiritual equivalent of hand-to-hand combat with the devil in the wilderness Matthew chapter four eighty will start with first date again the devil took him up on an exceedingly high mountain and showed him all the kingdoms the world and their glory he said to him all these things I will give you if you fall down and worship me then Jesus said to him away with you Satan for it is written you shall worship the Lord your God and him only shall you serve then the devil left him and behold angels came and what do they do minister to him over and over the Scripture records that the angels are God ministering spirits ministering to those who will inherit salvation their role in heaven is to do the footwork the rubber meets the road ministry on behalf of God they are his ministers and he sends them forth whenever there is need does that make sense of what now all of that is something you are likely familiar with networking to go a little bit deeper and would study this out a little bit more lycée is something I find fascinating that I find it interesting that I really like Revelation chapter fourteen machine comparison between two texts to illustrate what we've become aforementioned point Revelation chapter fourteen after it describes in the first six verses the faster first five versus the three angels messengers then he goes on to describe the three Angels messages it concludes with a picture of a description of the harvest of the earth or the second coming of Jesus and we start with verse fourteen fourteen in verse fourteen then I looked and behold a white cloud anyone on and on the clouds that one like the Son of Man of course the Son of Man is repeatedly a microkernel Jesus Christ having is that a golden crown and is and what is the Ativan is sharp what signal to glue the harvest instruments for raping a sharp sickle in verse fifteen another angel came out of the temple crying with a loud voice to him and sat on the cloud thrust in your sickle and arranging for the time of the harvest of the earth is right for the harvest of the earth is right her sixteenth so he who sat on the cloud noticed this language he who sat on the cloud thrust in his sickle on the earth and the earth was reaped according to this passage will hold the sickle and does the reaping at the second coming of Jesus is clear okay now let's compare that picture with the same event described by Jesus himself in Matthew chapter thirteen notices now Matthew chapter thirteen the same event second coming of Jesus Jesus himself is giving the description and after parable of the week and the tears I will start with verse thirty six Matthew chapter thirteen will begin the verse thirty six the interpretation of the parable of the wheat and the tears then Jesus and the multitude away and went into the house and his disciples came to him saying explains a lot the parable of the tares of the field and I love you Jesus just does it point by point symbol by symbol this means this verse thirty seven he answered and said to them he sows the good seed is here's our moniker again the Son of Man a the same languages revelation fourteen the field is the world limousines of the thunder kingdom something of the heirs of the sons of the wicked one the enemy who sowed them is the devil the harvest is the end of the age and notices and/or reimburse our the angel 's subquestion does Jesus reap the harvest of your yes or no if this point illustration might be helpful several years ago when I was living in Idaho I built a house we were not there is a different economic time back then you could do such a thing I built a house I didn't do the entire time and pick up one hammer one nail once all one level nothing but that house got built it into today I could say I built the house now how's that possible well it was my choice is to build a house it was the location it was my money you better believe it to build a house it was on my authority but I personally saw and hammer in drill and lay the foundation on I hired a contractor and blaming they knew that either right there hired other people and those people have other people and other people so the whole delegated chain a hierarchy of in his archaeological therapist right on down to the guys actually hammering the negative but in the end of the day and I look back on that experience as a built a house you have to understand in a certain since it was my money my place sure what have you got that done but the workers were those sent out to do the particular task does that make sense get in the same way Christ on expand this to the Godhead in general premises and this is a little bit weird most of the things not everything will of the things God does God doesn't do personally join the sentencing most of the things God does God doesn't do parts of it are some things that God rolled up as we can does himself in the beginning God created the heavens and the art clearly spoken into existence is in effect he became created man and he rolled up his own sleazy become the hammering the nails and the thought and the level he formed us in his image and breathed into our nostrils the breath of life that when he did but not everything that occurs on earth is just God coming down and enjoyment of the Nintendo TV access Christ is the letter that the workers are the Angels the workers on the Angels and let me illustrate this with a few points from Scripture that maybe this could be helpful for instance we talk about my latest book is called the word of what the word of God did you try to pin this book no she inspired the pen men yes we do not hold to a verbal dictation that got them and just became mechanically done how it worked but let's look at a few strings of Scripture to prove this point was second Timothy chapter three verse sixteen second Timothy chapter three verse sixteen some of these will go there rather quickly but I trust that you know your Scripture well enough that won't be difficult second Timothy chapter three verse sixteen see section of the assessment funds are first in Vienna with the second person of the know I was right guy I inserted at the left eye I don't make mistakes I secondly chapter three what is the same or sixteenth also pictured is given by what inspiration of whom God all Scripture in some versions even say if God was grieved he brings it out all Scripture is given by inspiration of God but now let's go over looking the same process of the inspiration of Scripture second Peter chapter one and verse twenty one again speaking of the inspiration of Scripture verse twenty one for prophecy never came by the will of man but a whole e-mail God spoke as they were moved by the Holy Spirit so it is the word of God but he moves the authors to speak and write very clearly God still is it's his word no could more clearly to be seen as in Revelation chapter one quickly go there Revelation chapter one verse one A we just finished up a series of meetings at twenty five effect because the twenty five meetings in Fremont Michigan I'm here this weekend and in the next week twenty four twenty five North Muskegon Michigan so the Lord is busy doing work and then I would would elicit your prayers decisions are being made for Christ right now all around the world to keep praying for those frontline ministers but what's this revelation chapter one how does the Lord conveying his message is first of all I bring up the evangelism thing because oftentimes people who are on I hope revelation just think it is the revelation of the revelation of horrors and the revelation of scary things of the anti- notice with the Bible says of itself the revelation although Jesus Christ now how does the camera which God gave him to show his servants and so there's a revelation of Jesus Christ and him and to him that God gave them now things which may shortly take place and he's sensitive and signified it by his angel to his servant John and of course John writes it down and sends it out to messengers are delivered to the seven churches and they recorded for posterity to those from God Douglas Angel Douglas messenger messenger right the other messengers of the whole sequence is a chain of events is a hierarchy but it's still at the end of the day after the end of the telephone game is still the word of God into his authority as commander others execute most of the things God does he doesn't do personally God delegated authority to his created beings he works through his created beings now 's the Genesis chapter four as we peel back the steam even a little bit more deeply Genesis chapter for one of the things I'll be honest with you which sometimes bugs me was we would show how Genesis one and two was the perfect environment the perfect place no sin and because of that perfection that's still untainted purity of Edenic innocence that God and his glory and convent condescend and meet with man and they wouldn't be destroyed by his presence so they can do things like walking the cool of the day and talk face-to-face but of course withstanding Isaiah makes it patently clear that our sins of separated us from God we can no longer have that dialogue then how is it him in Genesis three there we go to Genesis all are when we find this Genesis chapter four of course will start with the first three and in the process of time he came to pass became brought an offering of the first really ground the Lord verse four Abel also brought of the first fruit of his flock and of their fat and the lord respected Abel and his offering but he did not respect Cain and his offering and gain was very angry and his countenance fell now notice for six years Scripture says it to so the Lord said to Cain how is it that God contain are talking event was severed in Genesis three speak with an audible voice as link with the giving of the ten Commandments or the baptism of Jesus we could think that perhaps the what system would sitting wire you make me wiser countenance fallen if you do well you not be accepted if you not do well in life to the door and he desires for you if desired for you but you should rule over it God has this conversation with Kane the beginning of the second dialogue with them I will show you something from paychecks and profits page seventy four notwithstanding changes regarding command God did not leave him to himself but he condescended to reason with the man who would shown himself so unreasonable the key reason with but because Isaac and the Lord said and again why I felt raw otherwise the countless fallen then the next sentence through an angel messenger the divine warning was conveyed if thou do as well so not be accepted without does not do well sin lies at the door when it says the Lord spoke to him it was the Lord 's doing through his messenger and Angel took another what Chapter 11 just the right a few chapters Genesis Chapter 11 will start with verse six this is the tower of Babel those are with verse five Genesis Chapter 11 will begin the verse by the Tower of Babel but the Lord came down notice the onus is on the Lord responsibility of his the Lord came down to see the city and the tower which the sons of men had built and the Lord said indeed the people are one and they all have one language and this is what they begin to do now nothing that they propose to do will be withheld from them let us go down very clear we are going on come let us go down and there confuse their language accordingly technical is going down to confuse their language I got it right worked in the banana put an end of this thing let us go down to confuse their language that they may not understand one another's speech verse seven birthday so the Lord scattered them abroad across the face of the goal of all the earth and Macy's building the city story of redemption page seventy three commenting on this experience speaking of these builders of Babel they exalted themselves against God but he would not permit them to complete their work they had built their tower to a lofty height when the Lord sent to Angel 's to confound them in their work men had been appointed for the purpose of receiving word from Wharton at the top of the tower calling for material for their work which the first which indicates a second adhesive the third until the word reach those on the ground as the word was passing from one to another and it is then the Angels confound their language and when the word reached the workmen upon the ground material is called for which had not been require that a golfer hammer they got us all the call through a level they got a bag of dirty old I don't know exactly what they would somehow the Angels were the one to step in the footman the one the right all-around in this message that thinks they were genuinely which they were fixing with the Scripture gives that responsibility solely on the Lord and in the Lords work when he works for a little those angels who are his ministers Genesis chapter twelve to one hundred pages of the righteous we can go all through the picture Bible you'll see example after example of this Joseph L is the story of the Exodus the night of the Passover Genesis chapter twelve we go to verse twelve therefore will happen when Egyptians see they will say this on sorry Exodus chapter twelve to find chapter Genesis chapter twelve is not for purposes tonight Exodus chapter twelve in verse twelve for I will pass that is this the Lord is speaking I will pass through the land of Egypt on that night and will strike all the firstborn in the land of Egypt both men and reason against all the gods of Egypt I will execute judgment I am the Lord just in case you're confused about who is speaking that I want to do it I am the Lord now the blog will be a sign for you on those houses where you are and when I see the blood libel Passover and the plague shall not be on you to destroy you when I strike the land of Egypt the Lord with the first person on himself pagers and Prophets page two seven four each family alone or in connection with the others was to slay a landlord kid without blemish and with a bunch of his sprinkle its blood on the two side posts and on the under doorpost of the house that the destroying Angel coming at midnight might not enter that dwelling again very clearly the Lord 's work being accomplished through Angels now I show you one of the most poignant examples of this in Scripture please go to the book of Matthew chapter eight Matthew chapter eight to start with the first five Matthew chapter eight starting with verse five now when Jesus had entered Capernaum the sincerity and came to him pleading with him saying Lord my servants is aligned at home paralyzed dreadfully tormented and notice what Jesus says Richard Lugar seven and Jesus said to him I will comment and what heal them I will come there willing to go but notice the centurion 's answer the centurion answered and said Lord I not worthy of you should come under my roof but only speak a word and my servant will be healed a certain pastor that is who I heard first heard this message preached in this way and I convey to you express something that I've never consciously thought about when he said it I realized I had thought the same way that Christ's words had inherent magical properties that he speak something that the demon coming out whatever but that his word itself to the I don't know the syllables the awesome this week at the Annunciation power of the ha ha healing virtue with the NG is unwilling to come elderly person all the blame I have cure this disease I'll be willing to write up and noticed the centurion hall is not a know please I'm not working for you to come in my house you just speak the word and it will be accomplished did he have in mind what I have had in mind about the word of God no how do we know because he explained what he means by you speak the word what does he mean by that Matthew chapter eight again verse eight the centurion answered and said Lord I'm not worth it you should come under my roof but only speak a word and my servant will be healed and he explains wipers not for I am a man under what that word authority I man under authority having soldiers under me is like I'm part of the chain of command I have a boss and he tells me things and trust me I don't do the things either I have been doing right now at the end of the battle of the president wins the war which range was even know the glory goes to have limited authority as I did as his clutches responsibility in his glory at the end this enjoys is look look I understand the position and you come all the way to my others are below your pay grade and I'm not worthy to have you in my house he says that I understand the position urine you speak the word it will get done because I understand it's like I'm a man under authority and I have soldiers under me he continues to explain five soldiers under me verse nine and I say to this one go and he goes I think another company comes into my storage unit and heating of this watch Jesus response now versus when Jesus heard it he was the work marvels oftentimes leads a people marveling or astonished at the words of Jesus were not optimally think she is astonished at the words of people but whatever this man said struck home and you can see Jesus Ugandans Jesus heard it he marveled and said that those who falsely turned onto him he turned right regardless of whether the Middle Ages that I can imagine think about amenities of Sagan Thales anything I think I I memento mori I think he let me do my command was and what is that many said that those who followed him Charlotte has anyone I have not found such great faith not even in Israel as well as even if you like playing and what's this after he says I think even many will come from the East and West and sit down with Abraham Isaac and Jacob in the kingdom of heaven but the sons of the kingdom will be cast out and entered outer darkness there will be weeping and gnashing of teeth in the first thirteen then Jesus said the distance are you going your way as you have believed just the thing you thought was right I believe you have a spot on going your way and as you believe so let it be done for you and his servant was healed that same hour contextually according to Jesus why was the servant was healed that how are because Jesus Board has inherent magic properties no because he had people under him to obey his authority and he says go and they go he says he will and there he will name a successor taking liberties with Scripture we show you some inspired commentary on this account desire of ages page three sixteen here paraphrasing a expounding on the mindset of the Centurion Mrs. White writes as I represent the power of Rome and my soldiers recognize my authority is supreme so does now represent the power of the infinite God and all created beings all day by word without an command the disease to depart and it shall obey in the now canned salmon by heavenly messengers and they shall impart healing virtue speak with the word and my servant shall be healed and I need nicely to our opening lap her three we see in desire pages one forty three the following statement if you have a little app or something you can look it up to make sure it's really there desired pages one forty three the Angels of God are ever passing from earth to heaven and from heaven to earth watch this now the miracles of Christ Kennedy was the miracles of Christ for the afflicted and suffering were wrought by the power of God who administration of the Angels and it is through Christ by the ministration of his heavenly messengers that a blessing comes from God to us every blessing we get from God is God 's blessing to us through the ministration to the ministry of Angel by the way she uses that same sentence which he talked about the miracles of Christ for the afflicted and suffering Robin our God through the ministry ministration of the Angels she did use that sentence twice previously but each of those previous time she added one word at the very beginning and what is other references review and Herald January twenty one eighteen seventy three and to ask the spirit prophecy page sixty seven identical sentences but at this one word beginning all all the miracles of Christ for the afflicted and suffering or walk by the power of God through the ministration of the friend zone of paint this picture of you that most of the things that God does God doesn't do person he does by proxy he delegates authority he commands his created beings to do and they execute his will so we go back to the beginning prayer of Jesus what did Jesus mean when he says our father who art in heaven hallowed be thy name thy kingdom come thy will be done on earth as it is in heaven I've come to believe more and more fully please not speaking just with oratory beauty and smooth words for the sake of hearing but he actually meant something this is not a preamble to the good stuff right now father can have hounded and enabled it under the forgive us our cinema get into that all as though it's just a decorative introductory language is it possible that Jesus literally meant what he said father this is the ultimate goal that you working would come here and that you are will be begun here in the same way it's done in heaven the rest of this week and really developing what that means for us here and now in close of earth history is it possible that were waiting for God to do a work while he's waiting for us to be the workman we close with the state divine desire of ages page two nine seven with almost in patient eagerness as an interesting phrase with all the Angels don't send there not impatient their long-suffering there who take their time but they are supposed in patients with all most impatient eagerness the Angels wings for our cooperation for me and be the channel to communicate with man and when we give ourselves to Christ and wholehearted devotion angels rejoice they may speak through our voices to reveal God 's love I want to start this weekend off with this challenge is it possible that God have to work to finish on this earth and we assemble week after week her night after night in prayer and were at Lorillard to a great work or waiting to see that in his responses I want to do a great work I'm waiting for workers and I believe the Lord has raised at the second Baptist Church with a message for this time unparalleled in earth 's history we have the three Angels messages my question is are we willing to be the three angels messengers the messages of been there without waiting for a message we need his messengers we go back up how is the Lords work done in heaven is not personally by the father son Holy Spirit every time or by the four leaders of the twenty four hours it's those tens of thousands and thousands of multiplied thousands of angels they're going up and down the ladder they administered and there is eager to work here there ministering spirits sent to Mister Gosselin it will inherit salvation and this is the only place the universal people are waiting to inherit salvation and missing we will be in your place were so eager almost increasingly eager to work through you the Angels could switch places with anybody give me when I go this is where the help is needed this is what they landed to know all the work of the law still in the same as all I want to proclaim the truth when I'm not testing it out let me say that there hold back and gossiping the know we need to delegate authority man will speak to men you can work through them when you willingness friends the message is ready looking for messengers not me making appeals ninth my aim is to plant a seed of an idea of how God 's work is accomplished in heaven so we can start thinking how can we through his Spirit harmonize with that work hereunder only to be thinking if God wants his work done in heaven am I being an angel hereunder am I willing to go when he says go in my lingo Bailey says to this am I willing to preach racist rechargeable Bible study or sick a lot like the Angels are impatiently eager to give am I willing to be an Angel at my just waiting for someone else to work the crux of the whole thing in the church was to be two groups the watchers and the workers got looking for workers is my prayer that this generation will wise up and be the voice of God in this dark place as my presentation extent was a clear praise God when closing a word of prayer can only be ruminating on these ideas as we go in tomorrow and the next thing I at least father thank you so him all day for creating us at all you certainly didn't have to do that anymore you didn't have to send
