Unemployed Angels -- the Result of Lazy Christians and an Impotent God

By       (Page 2 of 4 pages)   No comments

"Whatever you bind [forbid, declare to be improper and unlawful] on earth will have [already] been bound in heaven, and whatever you loose [permit, declare lawful] on earth will have [already] been loosed in heaven."

We carry out the will of God by binding and loosing what has already been bound or loosed in heaven -- not the other way around. Again, it is a matter of properly understanding that God is God alone. He does not need our help and will not share His glory. Yet Kayembe said that binding means binding demons and loosing means commanding angels. Where did she get that from? What is worse, she believes that loosing also means to release the Holy Spirit to convict one's heart! So not only do angels sit around waiting for you to commission them but apparently the very spirit of God cannot convict someone of their sin without you releasing Him. How powerful you are!

"How to 'Employ' Angels - The Merriam-Webster Dictionary definitions for the word "employ" include: to engage the services of; to provide with a job; and to direct toward a particular activity or person. These are all things we want to do as we partner with the company of heaven. We know angels are ministering spirits sent to serve and assist us who inherit salvation (Heb. 1:14). In order for them to fully minister to us, in order for angels to thoroughly serve and assist us, they need to be given assignments. They are waiting for us to give them work to do! Scripture explains that angels obey the word of the Lord, and it is their delight to do His will (Ps. 103:20-21). They listen when we speak God's word and pray scriptural promises. When God speaks in our hearts what He wants done and we give voice to that, angels listen and are moved to action too. Gabriel told Daniel, "I have come because of your words" (Dan. 10:12c). By coming into agreement with God and His word, we are activating angels' standing orders so they are released to accomplish Father's plan." -- Charity Kayembe

This would be comical if it were not so serious. All this serves to do is distract us from Christ and the Gospel. Let me assure you that angels are not sitting around waiting for you to send them on an errand. There is also no biblical indication that angels are here to serve us. Look at the deceptive transition Kayembe tries to pull off:

Angels obey the word of the Lord and delight to do His will -- this is true

They listen when we speak God's Word and speak scriptural promises -- this is false

Back to back these sentences seem correct but there is no biblical proof that angels listen directly to us at all. Kayembe is trying to insert humans above angels. In his paradigm, God apparently cannot command his own angelic armies. Instead He needs us to command them? Then as biblical proof he offers one third of a verse. The key verses today provide the entire context. Read them ask yourself if the angel is saying he came because he heard directly from Daniel. The answer is obviously no. God heard the cries of Daniel. God dispatched the angel. He does not need nor require our help beloved. This is a narcissistic theology that is simply not supported by the bible.

"Matthew 16:18-19 speaks to this understanding of divine initiative and I appreciate how the Amplified Bible, Classic Edition, brings out the original meaning of the Greek: I will build My church, and the gates of Hades (the powers of the infernal region) shall not overpower it [or be strong to its detriment or hold out against it]. I will give you the keys of the kingdom of heaven; and whatever you bind (declare to be improper and unlawful) on earth must be what is already bound in heaven; and whatever you loose (declare lawful) on earth must be what is already loosed in heaven (emphasis mine). We look into the spirit to see what Jesus is up to and what Father has planned, and then we agree with that. We aren't just making things up as we go along; we're modeling the example of heaven. Sickness and sin are bound in heaven, so we bind them here. Angels and holiness are loosed in heaven, so we loose them here." -- Charity Bayembe
