What You Need to Know About Angelic Watchers

Angels have many functions, from protecting to providing, but angelic watchers are roaming the earth on assignment—and have been through the ages.

Angels don't often carry names in the Bible, but they are called out by function, purpose or operation. The book of Revelation speaks of an angel who has power of fire (Rev. 14:18), as well as an angel of the waters (Rev. 16:5), an angel who binds Satan (Rev. 20:1-2) and an angel of the abyss (Rev. 9:11).

Where does the concept of watcher angels come in? We see watcher angels many times in the Bible. They are often seen observing. Let's look at a few examples in Scripture:

"I say to you, whoever confesses Me before men, him will the Son of Man also confess before the angels of God. But he who denies Me before men will be denied before the angels of God" (Luke 12:8-9).

"Likewise, I tell you, there is joy in the presence of the angels of God over one sinner who repents" (Luke 15:10).

"For I think that God has exhibited us, the apostles, last, as if we were sentenced to death. For we have been made a spectacle to the world, to angels and to men" (1 Cor. 4:9).

"Without question, great is the mystery of godliness: God was revealed in the flesh, justified in the Spirit, seen by angels, preached to the Gentiles, believed on in the world, taken up into glory" (1 Tim. 3:16).

"I command you before God and the Lord Jesus Christ and the elect angels that you observe these things without prejudice, doing nothing by partiality" (1 Tim. 5:21).

"It was revealed to them that they were not serving themselves but you, concerning the things which are now reported to you by those who have preached the gospel to you through the Holy Spirit, who was sent from heaven—things into which the angels desire to look" (1 Pet. 1:12).

Those are just a few examples of watcher angels worth noting in the Bible. But why are they watching? They waiting for an assignment. They are ready to hearken to the voice of God's word (see Psalm 103). They are available to reap the harvest, to deliver people from danger, to communicate a message and more.

Angels are holy and seek to do God's will. You can grieve angels with your words and deeds just as you can grieve the Holy Spirit. Wherever you go and whatever you do, remember angels are watching—they want to help you do God's will in the season of abundant harvest.

The Lord is releasing angels of abundant harvest. Find out how to cooperate with them at angelsprophecy.com. {eoa}
