A third category of angels we will be considering today are warrior angels. These angels exist solely to wage and win wars. We see in Revelations 12:7 where the Bible says there was war in heaven and angel Michael and his angels fought the dragon, thus, there is a category of angels under Michael which are Warrior Angels. They fought against the dragon and his angels. For the angels to have “fought the dragon and his angels”, means that the devil has some angels under him that also wage war. The good news however is that the devil and his forces cannot prevail because they have been defeated and their place in heaven was not found.
When you learn to tap the help of these warrior angels, no satanic battle against you will prevail because they will be there to wage your war for you. In Daniel 10:13, when Daniel prayed and Gabriel was sent from heaven, the princes of the devil over the kingdom of Persia withstood the angel for twenty one days. Then, angel Michael was sent from heaven with reinforcement and when Michael arrived on the scene the battle was over. All those demons knew this was the angel in charge of war and quickly surrendered.
There are among these warrior angels those whose area of specialization is to fight battles that concern the kingdom of God. When the Bible says the enemies of God will fall, it does not mean that God has any personal enemy. There is no one big enough to be the enemy of God. The “enemies of God” as used in the Bible means the “enemies of the children of God”. This makes the battles that concern the children of God become the battles of these angels of God.
For example, the children of Israel fought all of their battles with angelic support. In 2 Kings 19:35, the Bible says God sent one angel and that angel killed one hundred and eighty-five thousand (185,000) solders in the camp of Sennacherib, the King of Assyria who was threatening to destroy Judah and blasphemed against the Lord in the process. Sennacherib returned home in shame. You must engage these angels in your warfare as part of the weapons of spiritual warfare.
PRAYER: Lord, I tap into the help of my warrior angels and I send them to destroy and prevail over every attack of the devil against my life and God’s programme in my hand in Jesus name. Amen.
