The first chapter of Hebrews describes two supernatural ministries that are available to us today: the ministry of Jesus and the ministry of angels. Jesus' ministry is much greater, but the angels play an important part in your life. Let's take a look at the ministry of angels.
To which of the angels said he at any time, Sit on my right hand, until I make thine enemies thy footstool? Are they not all ministering spirits, sent forth to minister for them who shall be heirs of salvation?
(Heb. 1:13-14)
In this last verse, God was defining the role of the angels. They are ministering spirits. We are the heirs of salvation. Continue now into chapter 2, verse 1:
Therefore we ought to give the more earnest heed to the things which we have heard, lest at any time we should let them slip.
Don't let this truth slip from you. The angels are ministering spirits sent forth to minister for you.
For the word spoken by angels was steadfast, and every transgression and disobedience received just recompense of reward; how shall we escape, if we neglect so great a salvation.
(Heb. 2:2-3)
The word salvation means "deliverance, preservation, healing, and soundness." This verse refers to the deliverance that comes by the angels.

We shouldn't let it slip that the angles are ministering spirits sent to minister for us. How are we going to escape the things the devil has set for us if we neglect the deliverance that comes by the angels? They are here to minister for us.

Everyday Examples
For instance, several years ago in Dallas, Texas, I was exiting off the freeway when I came upon a car that had stopped and blocked the way I was to turn, so I stopped. Another car, coming off the freeway, hit the back of my car. The gas tank burst and gasoline went everywhere, but there was no fire.

When my car was hit, I felt as though pillows were all around me—and no, it wasn't the air bags! The angels were surrounding me as described in Psalm 91:11:
He has given His angels charge over me to keep me in all my ways. [verse 7 says] A thousand shall fall at thy side, and ten thousand at thy right hand; but it shall not come nigh thee.
Begin to believe and confess this daily. Apply this promise from the Word of God to your situation daily.

Notice what the angel said to John in Revelation 22:8-9:
I John saw these things, and heard them. And when I had heard and seen, I fell down to worship before the feet of the angel which shewed me these things. Then saith he unto me, See thou do it not: for I am thy fellowservant....
This angel said to John, "I am thy fellowservant." The literal Greek says, "The fellow slave of yours, I am." In other words, he said, "Don't worship me. I'm your servant."

...I am thy fellowservant, and of thy brethren the prophets, and of them which keep the sayings of this book.

The angels are here to serve us and bring us deliverance in time of danger.

Don't Neglect Your Deliverance
How are you going to escape the snares of the enemy if you neglect so great a deliverance which comes by angels? When Daniel was in the lion's den, the angel shut the lion's mouth (Dan. 6:22). When Peter was in prison, the angel woke him up and led him out (Acts 12:7).
The Lord hath prepared his throne in the heavens; and his kingdom ruleth over all. Bless the Lord, Ye his angels, that excel in strength, that do his commandments, hearkening unto the voice of his word.
(Ps. 103:19-20)
The angels do God's commandments; and God's commandments are His statutes, His Word.

The angels are also involved in the Mark 11:23 faith principle: "He shall have whatsoever he saith." If you are saying, believing, and not doubting in your heart, then the angels are helping bring to pass your desires that agree with God's Word. The angels can't work on your behalf if your words don't line up with God's Word.

Your words either bind or loose your angels. When you say, "Nothing ever works for me; I will never get out of debt," you are binding your angels. They don't bring prosperity to you. They do his commandments, hearkening unto the voice of his Word, but you didn't give voice to God's Word!

If you hold your Bible up to your ear, you can't hear a sound. The angels hearken to the voice of God's Word, and you are the one who must give it voice. You can give God's Word voice by saying:
Blessed be God, I have given and it is given unto me—good measure, pressed down, shaken together, and running over. I have abundance; there is no lack. My God meets my need according to His riches in glory. The Lord is my Sheppard, and I do not want. I say, in the name of Jesus, that every disease germ and every virus that touches my body dies instantly. No weapon formed against me will prosper, and whatever I do will prosper.
Things To Remember
  1. Angels are ministering spirits, sent forth to minister for you.
  2. They are here to serve you and bring you deliverance in times of trouble.
  3. The angels of God do His commandment; they hearken unto the voice of His Word.
  4. Your words will either bind or loose your angels.
  5. Voice your desires in agreement with God's Word.
You must give God's Word voice.
