The Malachem V

For thousands of years, YAH has had servants to do his will and bring glory to His name. One of the first known entities from the beginning of time was known as the Malachem, also called Angels. The objective of today’s study and this series is to look at the word Malachem and understand what it means Scripturally and the titles that have been associated with them. We will attempt to broaden your understanding of the function, purpose, and position of these beings.

We will continued an exhaustive examination of scripture to understand the truth and mystery behind these entities. For the past several weeks we have looked at the will of YAH and how He has been able to execute it. What we have seen as the process is that YAH has a thought, a plan, and a will. He uses a body of created servants, which in scripture have been identified as the Spirit of the Lord, the Angel of the Lord, the Spirit, and the Holy Spirit.

The meaning of the word Angel, which in Hebrew is Malak is derived from an unused root meaning to dispatch as a deputy; a messenger; specifically of Elohim, that is, an angel-ambassador, king, and messenger. The term often denotes one sent as an agent or diplomacy by another. Also the theophanic angel, which is an angel or angels that present themselves to man as man as representatives of YAH.

In our last study we talked about the interceding Spirit, and we showed that there are indeed Malak that not only document everything that we have done from the time we’re born until we die, but also exist to provide a foundation and hedge for those practicing righteousness and seeking the Most High. We covered the watchers, which are the ones that watch everything that goes on and record it, and talked about the Spirit of Elohim or Holy Spirit which are the ones that abided in many of the Prophets and Apostles, to drive, guide, and perform theocratic functions to fulfill YAH’s will. When examining the Holy Spirit we showed there is no mystery behind them, Holy means to be set-apart, which are those who are upholding a standard that has been consecrated by the Most High. So when we say a Holy Spirit, we’re only talking about a Spirit that has been set-apart to perform an ecclesiastical or theocratic work in righteousness.

The Works of The Malachem

    Now Moshe was keeping the flock of Yitro, his father-in-law, the Priest of Midyan, and he led the flock to the back of the wilderness, and came to Elohim’s mountain, to Chorev. The angel of YAH appeared to him in a flame of fire out of the midst of a bush. He looked, and behold, the bush burned with fire, and the bush was not consumed. (Exo 3:1-2 RNWEB)

Moshe spent forty years as a prince in Egypt, receiving the best education, leadership skills, and social and civil development. He would have developed a considerable degree of arrogance and pride because of his upbringing. In contrast, after he fled from Egypt he spent 40 years as a sheep herder in Median. It would have been a huge transition to go from living in the royal house, to the life of a simple sheep herder, the latter would have certainly been humbling. The Most High is doing something with Moshe, remember the prophecy states that the sons of Yisrael will return to the land of Canaan in the forth generation. Moshe represented the forth generation, he wasn’t pushed down the river Nile by chance, it was all done by divine intervention. Moshe is now going to be introduced to YAH and commissioned for the job and role that he has been prepared for.

    Moshe said, "I will turn aside now, and see this great sight, why the bush is not burnt." When YAH saw that he turned aside to see, Elohim called to him out of the midst of the bush, and said, "Moshe! Moshe!" He said, "Here I am." He said, "Don’t come close. Take your sandals off of your feet, for the place you are standing on is holy ground." Moreover he said, "I am the Elohim of your father, the Elohim of Abraham, the Elohim of Isaac, and the Elohim of Jacob." Moshe hid his face; for he was afraid to look at Elohim. (Exo 3:3-6 RNWEB)

The previous scripture said it was an Angel in the bush, a messenger. Scripture uses angel and the Most Highs name or title interchangeably because a Holy Angel always represents the Most High, as his ambassador.

    YAH said, "I have surely seen the affliction of my people who are in Egypt, and have heard their cry because of their taskmasters, for I know their sorrows. I have come down to deliver them out of the hand of the Egyptians, and to bring them up out of that land to a good and large land, to a land flowing with milk and honey; to the place of the Kena`ani, the Chittite, the Amori, the Perizzi, the Chivvi, and the Yevusi. Now, behold, the cry of the children of Yisra’el has come to me. Moreover I have seen the oppression with which the Egyptians oppress them. Come now therefore, and I will send you to Par`oh, that you may bring forth my people, the children of Yisra’el, out of Egypt." Moshe said to Elohim, "Who am I, that I should go to Par`oh, and that I should bring forth the children of Yisra’el out of Egypt?" He said, "Certainly I will be with you. This will be the token to you, that I have sent you: when you have brought forth the people out of Egypt, you shall serve Elohim on this mountain." Moshe said to Elohim, "Behold, when I come to the children of Yisra’el, and tell them, ’The Elohim of your fathers has sent me to you;’ and they ask me, ’What is his name?’ What should I tell them?" Elohim said to Moshe, "I AM [haYAH] WHO [Asher] I AM [haYAH]," and he said, "You shall tell the children of Yisra’el this: ’I AM [haYAH] has sent me to you.’" (Exo 3:7-14 RNWEB)

"I AM WHO I AM" literally means, I exist, I’m life, I’m the beginning and there is no end to me. The children of Yisrael knew this name, we see that Moshe’s mother carried the name of the father and so did his uncles and great uncles, there name was "Yahdah" now distorted to Judah. The Angel of Elohim has been dispatched to give Moshe his charge, and a set of instructions. It’s interesting that the very first thing YAH introduces to this nation of people is His name. Not only will they be delivered out of Egypt but they will be led in the wilderness to build a relationship with the Most High. When they get into the promise land, that’s the point of consummation, where everything to be done in relation to the promise has been accomplished

    Elohim said moreover to Moshe, "You shall tell the children of Yisra’el this, ’YAH, the Elohim of your fathers, the Elohim of Abraham, the Elohim of Isaac, and the Elohim of Jacob, has sent me to you.’ This is my name forever, and this is my memorial to all generations. (Exo 3:15 RNWEB)

The Most High only has one name, even though he may be called by many things. YAH said this is my name forever throughout all generations, and it’s a memorial to all generations. His name is to be memorialized, which means to remember, commemorate, give tribute, and honor. It’s ironic that we see in the book of chronicles, which is where we can trace genealogies, that after Moshe received the name, the children of Yisrael as early as when they were in the wilderness started to name there children after YAH. Did you ever notice many of the prophets said, "YAH, were called by your name."

    Go, and gather the elders of Yisra’el together, and tell them, ’YAH, the Elohim of your fathers, the Elohim of Abraham, of Isaac, and of Jacob, has appeared to me, saying, "I have surely visited you, and seen that which is done to you in Egypt; and I have said, I will bring you up out of the affliction of Egypt to the land of the Kena`ani, the Chittite, the Amori, the Perizzi, the Chivvi, and the Yevusi, to a land flowing with milk and honey."’ They will listen to your voice, and you shall come, you and the elders of Yisra’el, to the king of Egypt, and you shall tell him, ’YAH, the Elohim of the Hebrews, has met with us. Now please let us go three days’ journey into the wilderness, that we may sacrifice to YAH, our Elohim.’ I know that the king of Egypt won’t give you permission to go, no, not by a mighty hand. I will put forth my hand and strike Egypt with all my wonders which I will do in the midst of it, and after that he will let you go. I will give this people favor in the sight of the Egyptians, and it will happen that when you go, you shall not go empty-handed. But every woman shall ask of her neighbor, and of her who visits her house, jewels of silver, jewels of gold, and clothing; and you shall put them on your sons, and on your daughters. You shall despoil the Egyptians. (Exo 3:16-22 RNWEB)
    Moshe answered, "But, behold, they will not believe me, nor listen to my voice; for they will say, ’YAH has not appeared to you.’" (Exo 4:1 RNWEB)

Moshe is talking to the angel in the bush, however we need to understand the angel is only speaking what he was commanded to say. Remember Yahshua told us when the Holy Spirit comes, He will only say those things that he was commanded to say.

    YAH said to him, "What is that in your hand?" He said, "A rod." (Exo 4:2 RNWEB)

Moshe was concerned that when he went to Yisrael and said what he was instructed by YAH that they would not believe him. Then the Spirit of Elohim speaking in behalf of YAH said, what’s that in your hand Moshe....

    He said, "Throw it on the ground." He threw it on the ground, and it became a snake; and Moshe ran away from it. YAH said to Moshe, "Put forth your hand, and take it by the tail." He put forth his hand, and laid hold of it, and it became a rod in his hand. "That they may believe that YAH, the Elohim of their fathers, the Elohim of Abraham, the Elohim of Isaac, and the Elohim of Jacob, has appeared to you." (Exo 4:3-5 RNWEB)

Now didn’t we see this very same thing taking place in the new testament? Look at the principal and practice that was taking place. Yahshua did miracles so people would believe that Elohim was with him, so they would know every word that came out of his mouth was endorsed by YAH. The miracles and signs were used to establish Yahshua as the Anointed Savior, King, and fulfillment of prophecy. It had to be done through miracles because no Hebrew would have believed any man saying they no longer had to sacrifice animals to atone for their sins. So miracles were necessary to establish Yahshua’s authority to present this message in his ministry. Moshe is in the same position, he needed to be able to do something to persuade them, so YAH gave him signs that he could use.

    YAH said furthermore to him, "Now put your hand inside your cloak." He put his hand inside his cloak, and when he took it out, behold, his hand was leprous, as white as snow. (Exo 4:6 RNWEB)

This is a form of vitiligo, which is pigmentation loss, and it’s classified today as a skin disease. This was a very large concern in the days of antiquity.

    He said, "Put your hand inside your cloak again." He put his hand inside his cloak again, and when he took it out of his cloak, behold, it had turned again as his other flesh. "It will happen, if they will neither believe you nor listen to the voice of the first sign, that they will believe the voice of the latter sign. (Exo 4:7-8 RNWEB)
    It will happen, if they will not believe even these two signs, neither listen to your voice, that you shall take of the water of the river, and pour it on the dry land. The water which you take out of the river will become blood on the dry land." Moshe said to YAH, "Oh, Master, I am not eloquent, neither before now, nor since you have spoken to your servant; for I am slow of speech, and of a slow tongue." YAH said to him, "Who made man’s mouth? Or who makes one mute, or deaf, or seeing, or blind? Isn’t it I, YAH? Now therefore go, and I will be with your mouth, and teach you what you shall speak." (Exo 4:9-12 RNWEB)

Moshe was worried because he wasn’t an eloquent orator, people of prestige and power in this time, were the same as people today. The ones that were fair in looks and eloquent in speech were perceived to have more authority and given more credibility. How a person presented themselves was a sign and symbol of there intelligent’s, and Moshe didn’t feel he could measure up in this area.

YAH told Moshe he would be with his mouth, This is the same thing Yahshua told his disciples when he said:

    Don’t be anxious beforehand, or premeditate what you will say, but say whatever will be given you in that hour. For it is not you who speak, but the Holy Spirit. (Mark 13:11 RNWEB)

When the Most Highs ambassador said, "Who hath made man’s mouth," he was saying don’t be concerned with such trivial matters, we have a job to do, don’t you think I’m capable, even though your not?

    He said, "Oh, Master, please send someone else." The anger of YAH was kindled against Moshe, and he said, "What about Aharon, your brother, the Levite? I know that he can speak well. Also, behold, he comes forth to meet you. When he sees you, he will be glad in his heart. (Exo 4:13-14 RNWEB)

YAH was getting angry because Moshe was belaboring this too much, he wanted Moshe to listen to him, follow his instructions, and have faith that he was able to perform what he said.

    You shall speak to him, and put the words in his mouth. I will be with your mouth, and with his mouth, and will teach you what you shall do. He will be your spokesman to the people; and it will happen, that he will be to you a mouth, and you will be to him as Elohim. You shall take this rod in your hand, with which you shall do the signs." Moshe went and returned to Yitro his father-in-law, and said to him, "Please let me go and return to my brothers who are in Egypt, and see whether they are still alive." Yitro said to Moshe, "Go in peace." (Exo 4:15-18 RNWEB)

We know it’s an angel speaking, however it’s important to realize YAH must always receive the glory. Everything is about YAH, we should never put an angel in the position of the Most High, and they should never be recognized or used outside the way YAH has endorsed, which is as a representative. All the power, prestige, glory, and honor goes to YAH. Notice what he says “And Aaron shall speak for you to the people. And it shall be that he shall be a mouth for you, and you shall be an elohim (a god) for him." This requires an understanding of the Hebraic culture. Men who are in authority and power are elohims, however there is only one true Elohim, one living sovereign power, we say El Shadai, the almighty El. Moshe was looked at as a god (elohim) because of the power and position that he received. Yahshua clarified this when he said, "Isn’t it written in your Torah, ’I said, you are elohims?’ (John 10:34, Psalms 82:6). So if Yahshua came saying he’s the son of elohim where has he made a mistake, the scriptures cannot be broken.

    "Behold, I send an angel before you, to keep you by the way, and to bring you into the place which I have prepared. (Exo 23:20 RNWEB)

The angel has authority, he has power, he has a mission, he has a goal, and objective. YAH says I’m assigning an Angel to keep you in the way. Notice what he says next:

    Pay attention to him, and listen to his voice. Don’t provoke him, for he will not pardon your disobedience, for my name is in him. (Exo 23:21 RNWEB)

The Angel represents YAH and speaks in his behalf. They will not pardon our transgressions, and are vexed (annoyed, irritated) easily. Remember Zekharyah, Gavri’el approached him and told him that Elisheva his wife would have a child, Zekharyah questioned Gavri’el and said how shall I know this? He didn’t believe him and immediately Gavri’el shut his mouth and made him dumb until all that was spoken came to pass. The Malachem have jobs to do, and they will do whatever’s necessary to accomplish it, so they should never be shown any kind of reproach.

    But if you indeed listen to his voice, and do all that I speak, then I will be an enemy to your enemies, and an adversary to your adversaries. (Exo 23:22 RNWEB)

The Holy Malachem cannot speak on their own behalf, they are bound by the oracles of Elohim.

    For my angel shall go before you, and bring you in to the Amori, the Chittite, the Perizzi, the Kena`ani, the Chivvi, and the Yevusi; and I will cut them off. You shall not bow down to their elohims, nor serve them, nor follow their practices, but you shall utterly overthrow them and demolish their pillars. You shall serve YAH your Elohim, and he will bless your bread and your water, and I will take sickness away from your midst. No one will miscarry or be barren in your land. I will fulfill the number of your days. (Exo 23:23-26 RNWEB)

YAH said, "if you practice righteousness," however it’s an angel speaking. We see if we’re obedient (righteous), he will help us with our sicknesses and diseases. Sin brought about deformities, diseases, and sicknesses. Righteousness is the opposite of sin, and we need to be striving for righteousness to be delivered from this curse.

    I will send my terror before you, and will confuse all the people to whom you come, and I will make all your enemies turn their backs to you. I will send the hornet before you, which will drive out the Chivvi, the Kena`ani, and the Chittite, from before you. I will not drive them out from before you in one year, lest the land become desolate, and the animals of the field multiply against you. (Exo 23:27-29 RNWEB)

YAH said the people in this land will be uprooted, but notice what he said after that, "I will not drive them out from before you in one year, lest the land become desolate, and the animals of the field multiply against you.," He’s telling them he has a plan, a strategy of how things will be accomplished. YAH has thought this out and he’s not just doing things on the spur of the moment. When we decide to do something we need to have a plan and strategy also, which coincides with the scripture to better guarantee success.

    Little by little I will drive them out from before you, until you have increased and inherit the land. I will set your border from the Sea of Suf even to the sea of the Pelishtim, and from the wilderness to the River; for I will deliver the inhabitants of the land into your hand, and you shall drive them out before you. You shall make no covenant with them, nor with their elohims. They shall not dwell in your land, lest they make you sin against me, for if you serve their elohims, it will surely be a snare to you." (Exo 23:30-33 RNWEB)
    YAH spoke to Moshe, "Depart, go up from here, you and the people that you have brought up out of the land of Egypt, to the land of which I swore to Abraham, to Isaac, and to Jacob, saying, ’I will give it to your seed.’ I will send an angel before you; and I will drive out the Kena`ani, the Amori, and the Chittite, and the Perizzi, the Chivvi, and the Yevusi: (Exo 33:1-2 RNWEB)
    They took their journey from Sukkot, and encamped in Etam, in the edge of the wilderness. YAH went before them by day in a pillar of cloud, to lead them on their way, and by night in a pillar of fire, to give them light, that they might go by day and by night: the pillar of cloud by day, and the pillar of fire by night, didn’t depart from before the people. (Exo 13:20-22 RNWEB)
    THE ANGEL OF ELOHIM, WHO WENT BEFORE THE CAMP OF YISRA’EL, moved and went behind them; and the pillar of cloud moved from before them, and stood behind them. (Exo 14:19 RNWEB)

Now didn’t we just read in the previous scripture that YAH went before them? This scripture is clarifying for us that it was an Angel, YAH’s agent actually went before Yisrael. YAH sits on His throne in heaven, no one has ever heard His voice or seen His shape, it has always been the Malachem coming in his place.

    It came between the camp of Egypt and the camp of Yisra’el; and there was the cloud and the darkness, yet gave it light by night: and the one didn’t come near the other all the night. Moshe stretched out his hand over the sea, and YAH caused the sea to go back by a strong east wind all the night, and made the sea dry land, and the waters were divided. (Exo 14:20-21 RNWEB)

YAH receives the glory because this is his will, he is the one that orchestrates (arranges, plans, sets up, brings about). He is the father and creator of all things, however it is the Malachem that do the work on his behalf, because that’s the mandate they have been given.

    The children of Yisra’el went into the midst of the sea on the dry ground, and the waters were a wall to them on their right hand, and on their left. The Egyptians pursued, and went in after them into the midst of the sea: all of Par`oh’s horses, his chariots, and his horsemen. It happened in the morning watch, that YAH looked out on the Egyptian army through the pillar of fire and of cloud, and confused the Egyptian army. He took off their chariot wheels, and they drove them heavily; so that the Egyptians said, "Let’s flee from the face of Yisra’el, for YAH fights for them against the Egyptians!" YAH said to Moshe, "Stretch out your hand over the sea, that the waters may come again on the Egyptians, on their chariots, and on their horsemen." Moshe stretched out his hand over the sea, and the sea returned to its strength when the morning appeared; and the Egyptians fled against it. YAH overthrew the Egyptians in the midst of the sea. The waters returned, and covered the chariots and the horsemen, even all Par`oh’s army that went in after them into the sea. There remained not so much as one of them. But the children of Yisra’el walked on dry land in the midst of the sea, and the waters were a wall to them on their right hand, and on their left. Thus YAH saved Yisra’el that day out of the hand of the Egyptians; and Yisra’el saw the Egyptians dead on the seashore. Yisra’el saw the great work which YAH did to the Egyptians, and the people feared YAH; and they believed in YAH, and in his servant Moshe. (Exo 14:22-31 RNWEB)
    It happened, when Yahoshua was by Yericho, that he lifted up his eyes and looked, and behold, there stood a man over against him with his sword drawn in his hand: and Yahoshua went to him, and said to him, Are you for us, or for our adversaries? (Jos 5:13 RNWEB)

Remember Yahoshua (Joshua) is the one that succeeded Moshe, He is the commander and king in Yisrael now. He looks over and sees a man standing with a sword in his hand. (This is an example of an Angel coming as a man). Yahoshua asked him, are you for our side or the other, let’s see how the events unfold.

    He said, No; but I have come now as commander of YAH’s army. Yahoshua fell on his face to the earth, and did worship, and said to him, What says my master to his servant? (Jos 5:14 RNWEB)

Many believe the captain of YAH’s host is Michael, but there is no way for us to know. We do know that there are seven Spirits (Malak’s) that stand before YAH in the throne room and command legions of Malachem, the scriptures only reveal the name of two of them. There are several things we cannot speak emphatically about concerning the divine order, simply because we’re not told, and this is probably because there is no reason for us to know. If this was something meant for us to understand it would have been written down by the hand of a prophet, however, if this was done it could have opened the door for Angel worship. For example, look what Catholicism has done, they pray to people documented in scripture such as Joseph, Mary, Peter, and many other dead so called saints. They also have an extensive line of statues and crosses which are nothing more than idols. We’re instructed in scripture to only pray to the Most High, never to anyone else!

    The prince of YAH’s army said to Yahoshua, Put off your shoe from off your foot; for the place whereon you stand is holy. Yahoshua did so. (Jos 5:15 RNWEB)

We have only seen a man asked to remove his shoes once before because the ground was Holy. We don’t know exactly who this is but He is the CAPTAIN of YAH’s hosts. The only other time this request was made Moshe was standing before the burning bush.

Let’s look at scripture that shows even the Apostles weren’t willing to speculate on things that were not made clear in scripture.

    After the second veil was the tabernacle which is called the Holy of Holies, having a golden altar of incense, and the ark of the covenant overlaid on all sides with gold, in which was a golden pot holding the manna, Aharon’s rod that budded, and the tablets of the covenant; and above it Keruvim of glory overshadowing the mercy seat, of which things we can’t speak now in detail. (Heb 9:3-5 RNWEB)

We can only speak to the things that YAH has clearly outlined for us. Anything we approach with speculation and conjecture will only cause problems and end up leading to false doctrines. There are other places where they talked about operations within the divine order where prophets and Apostles stood back, this is the same wisdom and prudence we need to apply. We need to be very careful to speak and teach on things that are clearly outlined in scripture and not bring in our own ideas, speculations, and experiences.

    Now Yericho was tightly shut up because of the children of Yisra’el: none went out, and none came in. YAH said to Yahoshua, Behold, I have given into your hand Yericho, and the king of it, and the mighty men of valor. You shall compass the city, all the men of war, going about the city once. Thus shall you do six days. Seven priests shall bear seven trumpets of rams’ horns before the ark: and the seventh day you shall compass the city seven times, and the priests shall blow the trumpets. It shall be that when they make a long blast with the ram’s horn, and when you hear the sound of the trumpet, all the people shall shout with a great shout; and the wall of the city shall fall down flat, and the people shall go up every man straight before him. Yahoshua the son of Nun called the priests, and said to them, Take up the ark of the covenant, and let seven priests bear seven trumpets of rams’ horns before the ark of YAH. They said to the people, Pass on, and compass the city, and let the armed men pass on before the ark of YAH. It was so, that when Yahoshua had spoken to the people, the seven priests bearing the seven trumpets of rams’ horns before YAH passed on, and blew the trumpets: and the ark of the covenant of YAH followed them. The armed men went before the priests who blew the trumpets, and the rearward went after the ark, [the priests] blowing the trumpets as they went. Yahoshua commanded the people, saying, You shall not shout, nor let your voice be heard, neither shall any word proceed out of your mouth, until the day I bid you shout; then shall you shout. So he caused the ark of YAH to compass the city, going about it once: and they came into the camp, and lodged in the camp. Yahoshua rose early in the morning, and the priests took up the ark of YAH. The seven priests bearing the seven trumpets of rams’ horns before the ark of YAH went on continually, and blew the trumpets: and the armed men went before them; and the rearward came after the ark of YAH, [the priests] blowing the trumpets as they went. The second day they compassed the city once, and returned into the camp: so they did six days. It happened on the seventh day, that they rose early at the dawning of the day, and compassed the city after the same manner seven times: only on the day they compassed the city seven times. It happened at the seventh time, when the priests blew the trumpets, Yahoshua said to the people, Shout; for YAH has given you the city. The city shall be devoted, even it and all that is therein, to YAH: only Rachav the prostitute shall live, she and all who are with her in the house, because she hid the messengers that we sent. But as for you, only keep yourselves from the devoted thing, lest when you have devoted it, you take of the devoted thing; so would you make the camp of Yisra’el accursed, and trouble it. But all the silver, and gold, and vessels of brass and iron, are holy to YAH: they shall come into the treasury of YAH. So the people shouted, and [the priests] blew the trumpets; and it happened, when the people heard the sound of the trumpet, that the people shouted with a great shout, and the wall fell down flat, so that the people went up into the city, every man straight before him, and they took the city. They utterly destroyed all that was in the city, both man and woman, both young and old, and ox, and sheep, and donkey, with the edge of the sword. Yahoshua said to the two men who had spied out the land, Go into the prostitute’s house, and bring out there the woman, and all that she has, as you swore to her. The young men the spies went in, and brought out Rachav, and her father, and her mother, and her brothers, and all that she had; all her relatives also they brought out; and they set them outside of the camp of Yisra’el. They burnt the city with fire, and all that was therein; only the silver, and the gold, and the vessels of brass and of iron, they put into the treasury of the house of YAH. But Rachav the prostitute, and her father’s household, and all that she had, did Yahoshua save alive; and she lived in the midst of Yisra’el to this day, because she hid the messengers, whom Yahoshua sent to spy out Yericho. Yahoshua charged them with an oath at that time, saying, Cursed be the man before YAH, that rises up and builds this city Yericho: with the loss of his firstborn shall he lay the foundation of it, and with the loss of his youngest son shall he set up the gates of it. So YAH was with Yahoshua; and his fame was in all the land. (Jos 6:1-27 RNWEB)

The Angel gave Yahoshua very specific instructions against Yericho and he followed those instructions, He marched around seven times, blowed the Shofar seven times and the walls fell down. The Malachem knocked down the walls, and we know that the Most Highs hand was in it, he’s the one that received the glory.

    The angel of YAH came up from Gilgal to Bokhim. He said, I made you to go up out of Egypt, and have brought you to the land which I swore to your fathers; and I said, I will never break my covenant with you: and you shall make no covenant with the inhabitants of this land; you shall break down their altars. But you have not listened to my voice: why have you done this? (Jdg 2:1-2 RNWEB)

Remember the Most Highs instructions, "Behold, I send an angel before you, to keep you by the way, and to bring you into the place which I have prepared. Pay attention to him, and listen to his voice. DON’T PROVOKE HIM, FOR HE WILL NOT PARDON YOUR DISOBEDIENCE, for my name is in him".

    Therefore I also said, I will not drive them out from before you; but they shall be [as thorns] in your sides, and their elohims shall be a snare to you. It happened, when the angel of YAH spoke these words to all the children of Yisra’el, that the people lifted up their voice, and wept. They called the name of that place Bokhim: and they sacrificed there to YAH. (Jdg 2:3-5 RNWEB)
    The angel of YAH came, and sat under the oak which was in Ofrat, that pertained to Yo’ash the Avi-Ezri: and his son Gid`on was beating out wheat in the winepress, to hide it from the Midyanim. The angel of YAH appeared to him, and said to him, YAH is with you, you mighty man of valor. Gid`on said to him, Oh, my master, if YAH is with us, why then has all this happened to us? and where are all his wondrous works which our fathers told us of, saying, Did not YAH bring us up from Egypt? but now YAH has cast us off, and delivered us into the hand of Midyan. YAH looked at him, and said, Go in this your might, and save Yisra’el from the hand of Midyan: have not I sent you? He said to him, Oh, Master, with which shall I save Yisra’el? behold, my family is the poorest in Menasheh, and I am the least in my father’s house. YAH said to him, Surely I will be with you, and you shall strike the Midyanim as one man. He said to him, If now I have found favor in your sight, then show me a sign that it is you who talk with me. Please don’t go away, until I come to you, and bring out my present, and lay it before you. He said, I will wait until you come again. Gid`on went in, and made ready a kid, and unleavened cakes of an efah of meal: the flesh he put in a basket, and he put the broth in a pot, and brought it out to him under the oak, and presented it. The angel of Elohim said to him, Take the flesh and the unleavened cakes, and lay them on this rock, and pour out the broth. He did so. Then the angel of YAH put forth the end of the staff that was in his hand, and touched the flesh and the unleavened cakes; and there went up fire out of the rock, and consumed the flesh and the unleavened cakes; and the angel of YAH departed out of his sight. Gid`on saw that HE WAS THE ANGEL OF YAH; and Gid`on said, Alas, Master YAH! because I HAVE SEEN THE ANGEL OF YAH FACE TO FACE. YAH said to him, Peace be to you; don’t be afraid: you shall not die. Then Gid`on built an altar there to YAH, and called it YAH is Peace: to this day it is still in Ofrat of the Abiezrites. (Jdg 6:11-24 RNWEB)
    The children of Yisra’el again did that which was evil in the sight of YAH; and YAH delivered them into the hand of the Pelishtim forty years. There was a certain man of Tzor`ah, of the family of the Dani, whose name was Manoach; and his wife was barren, and didn’t bear. THE ANGEL OF YAH APPEARED to the woman, and said to her, See now, you are barren, and don’t bear; but you shall conceive, and bear a son. NOW THEREFORE PLEASE BEWARE and drink no wine nor strong drink, and don’t eat any unclean thing: (Jdg 13:1-4 RNWEB)

In the book of judges, we see demonstrated and clarified some of the first captivities and elements of oppression that YAH placed on the sons of Yisrael for their disobedience. In this scripture were dealing with an Angel coming to Manoach and his wife giving them direct instructions. YAH is about to do something, he is going to raise up a deliver who will be a Nazir. This is the will of YAH and he’s dispatching an Angel to send this message and give these instructions.

The charge from the Malak required Manoach’s wife to "Beware," and not drink any wine, strong drink, or eat anything that is unclean. In other words there being told this child is not yours but a servant of Elohim, which you bare in your womb. The child is going to be used to serve Elohims purpose, and be in his service.

    for, behold, you shall conceive, and bear a son; and no razor shall come on his head; for the child shall be a Nazir to Elohim from the womb: and he shall begin to save Yisra’el out of the hand of the Pelishtim. Then the woman came and told her husband, saying, A man of Elohim came to me, and his face was like the face of the angel of Elohim, very awesome; and I didn’t ask him whence he was, neither did he tell me his name: (Jdg 13:5-6 RNWEB)

Take notice of how the Malak was described, "very awesome," Malak’s are very direct and concise, they are not approaching an individual to play games, but to fulfill the will of YAH. We’re covering not only the process YAH uses to carry out his word, but also the entities in heaven that he uses, and how they present themselves when fulfilling a mandate from YAH.

    but he said to me, Behold, you shall conceive, and bear a son; and now drink no wine nor strong drink, and eat not any unclean thing; for the child shall be a Nazir to Elohim from the womb to the day of his death. Then Manoach entreated YAH, and said, Oh, Master, please let the man of Elohim whom you did send come again to us, and teach us what we shall do to the child who shall be born. Elohim listened to the voice of Manoach; and the angel of Elohim came again to the woman as she sat in the field: but Manoach, her husband, wasn’t with her. The woman made haste, and ran, and told her husband, and said to him, Behold, the man has appeared to me, who came to me the [other] day. Manoach arose, and went after his wife, and came to the man, and said to him, Are you the man who spoke to the woman? He said, I am. Manoach said, Now let your words happen: what shall be the ordering of the child, and [how] shall we do to him? The angel of YAH said to Manoach, Of all that I said to the woman let her beware. She may not eat of anything that comes of the vine, neither let her drink wine or strong drink, nor eat any unclean thing; all that I commanded her let her observe. (Jdg 13:7-14 RNWEB)

This is not saying it’s a sin to drink things that comes from the vine. It’s only a sin when your under a Nazir’s vow, as described in Numbers the sixth chapter. This is a vow of separation, where a male or female vows to separate themselves unto YAH for a specific period of time, with Shimshon it was for his entire life. There was a very specific set of instructions they had to follow as set forth by YAH.

    Manoach said to the angel of YAH, I pray you, let us detain you, that we may make ready a kid for you. The angel of YAH said to Manoach, Though you detain me, I won’t eat of your bread; and if you will make ready a burnt offering, you must offer it to YAH. For Manoach didn’t know that he was the angel of YAH. (Jdg 13:15-16 RNWEB)

The Malak is redirecting all esteem to YAH, he told Manoach if he was going to give a burnt offering it must be made to YAH. As we continue we also see Manoach didn’t even realize this was an Angel, because he was looking at a man. This is another example of a theophanic Angel, one who comes and shows himself to man, in the form of man.

    Manoach said to the angel of YAH, What is your name, that when your words happen, we may honor you? The angel of YAH said to him, Why do you ask after my name, seeing it is wonderful? So Manoach took the kid with the meal offering, and offered it on the rock to YAH: and [the angel] did wondrously, and Manoach and his wife looked on. (Jdg 13:17-19 RNWEB)

Manoach wanted to know the Angels name so he could give him honor to him when the event came to pass, but the angel replied his name was a secret; The Angel was not going to accept honor from Monoach. It says the Angel did wondrously, lets read on to see what happened.

    For it happened, when the flame went up toward the sky from off the altar, that the angel of YAH ascended in the flame of the altar: and Manoach and his wife looked on; and they fell on their faces to the ground. (Jdg 13:20 RNWEB)

The Angel went up in the flame toward heaven, Manoach thought he was just talking to a man perhaps a prophet. Now when they saw this event, both Manoach and his wife fell with their faces to the ground. They had no idea who they were entertaining until this happened.

    But the angel of YAH did no more appear to Manoach or to his wife. Then Manoach knew that he was the angel of YAH. Manoach said to his wife, We shall surely die, because we have seen Elohim. But his wife said to him, If YAH were pleased to kill us, he wouldn’t have received a burnt offering and a meal offering at our hand, neither would he have shown us all these things, nor would at this time have told such things as these. The woman bore a son, and named him Shimshon: and the child grew, and YAH blessed him. The Spirit of YAH began to move him in Machane-Dan, between Tzor`ah and Eshta’ol. (Jdg 13:21-25 RNWEB)

Remember the Angel came up and said to Manoach wife, your going to conceive a child and he will be a Nazir. Don’t eat any unclean thing or drink anything that comes from the vine, for the child will be a Nazir from the womb until his death. YAH is raising a deliverer to deliver the sons of Yisrael from the oppression of the Pelishtim’s, so he set this criterion for him. Now lets see what happens when the child gets older.

    Shimshon went down to Timnah, and saw a woman in Timnah of the daughters of the Pelishtim. He came up, and told his father and his mother, and said, I have seen a woman in Timnah of the daughters of the Pelishtim: now therefore get her for me as wife. Then his father and his mother said to him, isn’t there a woman among the daughters of your brothers, or among all my people, that you go to take a wife of the uncircumcised Pelishtim? Shimshon said to his father, Get her for me; for she pleases me well. But his father and his mother didn’t know that it was of YAH; for he sought an occasion against the Pelishtim. Now at that time the Pelishtim had rule over Yisra’el. (Jdg 14:1-4 RNWEB)

Shimshon being attracted to a Pelishtim woman was part of YAH’s agenda, he was influencing Shimshon’s feelings, and manipulating the circumstance to serve his purpose.

It’s important that we see how the Malachem work, and what there role and responsibilities are. They participate in several roles, however what’s important to us, is how they work with humanity, how they use us, how they direct us, how they document our actions, behavior, words, statements, and responses as it relates to the commandments of YAH. We need to realize that everything we do is being watched and documented, we can’t do anything that the Malachem are not aware of. Take a moment to think about this and decide if you have been walking in the fear of Elohim. Try to imagine someone being physically with you every moment of the day, would there be anything you would do differently?

    Nevertheless David took the stronghold of Tziyon; the same is the city of David. David said on that day, Whoever strikes the Yevusi, let him get up to the watercourse, and [strike] the lame and the blind, who are hated of David’s soul. Therefore they say, There are the blind and the lame; he can’t come into the house. David lived in the stronghold, and called it the city of David. David built round about from Millo and inward. David grew greater and greater; for YAH, the Elohim of hosts, was with him. Chiram king of Tzor sent messengers to David, and cedar trees, and carpenters, and masons; and they built David a house. David perceived that YAH had established him king over Yisra’el, and that he had exalted his kingdom for his people Yisra’el’s sake. David took him more concubines and wives out of Yerushalayim, after he was come from Chevron; and there were yet sons and daughters born to David. These are the names of those who were born to him in Yerushalayim: Shammua, and Shovav, and Natan, and Shlomo, and Yivchar, and Elishua, and Nefeg, and Yafia, and Elishama, and Elyada, and Elifelet. When the Pelishtim heard that they had anointed David king over Yisra’el, all the Pelishtim went up to seek David; and David heard of it, and went down to the stronghold. Now the Pelishtim had come and spread themselves in the valley of Refa’im. David inquired of YAH, saying, Shall I go up against the Pelishtim? will you deliver them into my hand? YAH said to David, Go up; for I will certainly deliver the Pelishtim into your hand. David came to Ba`al-Euphrateszim, and David struck them there; and he said, YAH has broken my enemies before me, like the breach of waters. Therefore he called the name of that place Ba`al-Euphrateszim. They left their images there; and David and his men took them away. The Pelishtim came up yet again, and spread themselves in the valley of Refa’im. When David inquired of YAH, he said, You shall not go up: make a circuit behind them, and come on them over against the mulberry trees. (2Sa 5:7-23 RNWEB)

YAH through a Malak told David not to go up, but make a circuit behind them, which means to encircle around them. Then he was told to come against them at the mulberry trees.

    It shall be, when you hear the sound of marching in the tops of the mulberry trees, that then you shall bestir yourself; for then is YAH gone out before you to strike the army of the Pelishtim. (2Sa 5:24 RNWEB)

David was told to listen for a sound of troops marching in the mulberry trees. Then YAH would go out against Yisrael’s enemies, YAH was fighting these battles using the Malachem, they were the ones marching through the mulberry trees to fight the battle.

    David did so, as YAH commanded him, and struck the Pelishtim from Geva until you come to Gezer. (2Sa 5:25 RNWEB)

Yisrael had a small and poorly equipped army compared to the much older civilizations with much stronger and larger armies. Unless Elohim gave Yisrael the battle, they couldn’t stand against armies like the Pelishtim, Egyptians, or Assyrians.

    When the servant of the man of Elohim was risen early, and gone forth, behold, an army with horses and chariots was round about the city. His servant said to him, Alas, my master! how shall we do? (2 Kings 6:15 RNWEB)

Elisha arose to leave but found the city surrounded by the Syrians.

    He answered, Don’t be afraid; for those who are with us are more than those who are with them. (2Ki 6:16 RNWEB)

The servant of Elisha was puzzled by his response. In the servants eyes there were just a small number of men in the city compared to the great multitude of mighty men surrounding them.

    Elisha prayed, and said, YAH, Please open his eyes, that he may see. YAH opened the eyes of the young man; and he saw: and behold, the mountain was full of horses and chariots of fire round about Elisha. (2Ki 6:17 RNWEB)

The Syrians were encircling the city, however YAH put his chariots on their chariots just waiting for the command. This example, as in others we have discussed, shows us while Yisrael was obedient to YAH’s word they never fought alone, they always had an army of Malachem clearing the way. Remember YAH said he would always be with them, however YAH also said, "that the day that you forsake me, I will forsake you." David wrote by the Spirit, "The angel of YAH encamps round about those who fear him, and delivers them."

When we do what were supposed to, things will go well for us and we should not worry. It’s important that we meditate and focus on practicing righteousness. We’re not talking about creating our own standard of righteousness, but the universal standard that YAH set forth for all humanity in the Torah.

    This shall be the sign to you: You shall eat this year that which grows of itself, and in the second year that which springs of the same; and in the third year sow you, and reap, and plant vineyards, and eat the fruit of it. The remnant that has escaped of the house of Judah shall again take root downward, and bear fruit upward. For out of Yerushalayim shall go forth a remnant, and out of Mount Tziyon those who shall escape: the zeal of YAH shall perform this. Therefore thus says YAH concerning the king of Ashur, He shall not come to this city, nor shoot an arrow there, neither shall he come before it with shield, nor cast up a mound against it. (2Ki 19:29-32 RNWEB)

Here we have Isaiah’s prophecy of Judah’s deliverance, the king of Assyria is going to seize Yerushalayim, however Yerushalayim is YAH’s city, Mount Tziyon is his. In the book of Psalms it says "For YAH has chosen Tziyon. He has desired it for his habitation."

    By the way that he came, by the same shall he return, and he shall not come to this city, says YAH. For I will defend this city to save it, for my own sake, and for my servant David’s sake. It happened that night, that the angel of YAH went forth, and struck in the camp of the Ashur one hundred eighty-five thousand: and when men arose early in the morning, behold, these were all dead bodies. (2Ki 19:33-35 RNWEB)

YAH said he will defend the city, the Assyrians are coming in great numbers and they began to prepare there battle plan for the next day, YAH dispatched an Angel and that evening he killed 185,000 men.

    So Sancheriv king of Ashur departed, and went and returned, and lived at Nineveh. (2Ki 19:36 RNWEB)

The king of Ashur departed, and he was completely alone, his army had been wiped out by just one Malak.

    Shadrakh, Meshakh, and `Aved-Nego answered the king, Nevukhadnetzar, we have no need to answer you in this matter. (Dan 3:16 RNWEB)

The King wanted to know why the three Hebrews wouldn’t bow down to his gold statue, they responded, "we have no need to answer you in this matter."

    If it be [so], our Elohim whom we serve is able to deliver us from the burning fiery furnace; and he will deliver us out of your hand, O king. But if not, be it known to you, O king, that we will not serve your elohims, nor worship the golden image which you have set up. Then was Nevukhadnetzar full of fury, and the form of his visage was changed against Shadrakh, Meshakh, and `Aved-Nego: [therefore] he spoke, and commanded that they should heat the furnace seven times more than it was usually heated. He commanded certain mighty men who were in his army to bind Shadrakh, Meshakh, and `Aved-Nego, [and] to cast them into the burning fiery furnace. Then these men were bound in their pants, their tunics, and their mantles, and their [other] garments, and were cast into the midst of the burning fiery furnace. Therefore because the king’s commandment was urgent, and the furnace exceeding hot, the flame of the fire killed those men who took up Shadrakh, Meshakh, and `Aved-Nego. These three men, Shadrakh, Meshakh, and `Aved-Nego, fell down bound into the midst of the burning fiery furnace. Then Nevukhadnetzar the king was astonished, and rose up in haste: he spoke and said to his counselors, Didn’t we cast three men bound into the midst of the fire? They answered the king, True, O king. He answered, Look, I see four men loose, walking in the midst of the fire, and they have no hurt; and the aspect of the fourth is like a son of the elohims. (Dan 3:17-25 RNWEB)

In Christianity they call this a christophany, trying to say the son of Elohim is some type of pre-incarnate Christ. This could not be farther from the truth, and scripture will not bare witness to their erroneous theology. This is a theophanic Angel (Malak) protecting the three Hebrew children.

    Then Nevukhadnetzar came near to the mouth of the burning fiery furnace: he spoke and said, Shadrakh, Meshakh, and `Aved-Nego, you servants of the El `Elyon, come forth, and come here. Then Shadrakh, Meshakh, and `Aved-Nego came forth out of the midst of the fire. The satraps, the deputies, and the governors, and the king’s counselors, being gathered together, saw these men, that the fire had no power on their bodies, nor was the hair of their head singed, neither were their pants changed, nor had the smell of fire passed on them. Nevukhadnetzar spoke and said, Blessed be the Elohim of Shadrakh, Meshakh, and `Aved-Nego, who has sent his angel, and delivered his servants who trusted in him, and have changed the king’s word, and have yielded their bodies, that they might not serve nor worship any elohim, except their own Elohim. (Dan 3:26-28 RNWEB)

This is another example of an Angel encamping around the righteous and delivering them in there time of trouble. The key word here is "righteous," this is based on YAH’s code of ethics and not mans. Simply we must be obedient to his laws, statutes, and ordinances with all our strength, mind, will, and sincerity.

Let’s take a moment to show that the christophany doctrine is not correct.

    For to which of the angels did he say at any time, "You are my Son. Today have I become your father?" and again, "I will be to him a Father, and he will be to me a Son?" (Heb 1:5 RNWEB)

When we talk about a christophany, were saying that Yahshua pre-existed in the days of antiquity. First there’s only one entity that can get past the thousand year curse that was put on Adam, and that is an angel. Angels can live for an eternity, but man is limited to 1000 years in this body, the oldest man only lived 969 years. YAH said in the day that you sin, you shall surely die. There is no way man can cross over that threshold of a day, in scripture one day is equal to 1000 years. Now with christophany were looking at a pre-existent Christ, and in order for this theory to work we have to believe that 606 years before Yahshua’s birth he was in the furnace saving three Hebrew children. Also 1450 year before his birth he was in the burning bush talking to Moshe, Then shortly after he was the one giving the ten commandments on Mount Sinai. Scripture tells us in everyone of these situations these were Angels. Now lets review what Sha’ul was saying in Hebrews verse five "For unto which of the angels said he at any time, You art my Son, this day have I begotten you?" and he continues...

    Again, when he brings in the firstborn into the world he says, "Let all the angels of Elohim worship him." (Heb 1:6 RNWEB)

The firstborn was brought into the world when the Most High raised Yahshua from the dead.

All the angels of Elohim worshiped him to show respect and honor, they actually prostrated themselves before him, because he is worthy.

    But which of the angels has he told at any time, "Sit at my right hand, until I make your enemies the footstool of your feet?" Aren’t they all serving spirits, sent out to do service for the sake of those who will inherit salvation? (Heb 1:13-14 RNWEB)

Now if this doctrine were true it would completely break the scriptures, because in order for the christophany theory to be true they would be suggesting that Yahshua was an angel. Scriptures in all the so called christophany instances call the being an Angel of Elohim. Review the scriptures in Hebrews again, they would all have to be erroneous if we suggest Yahshua pre-existed his birth on earth. We also have nothing in scripture foretelling or proclaiming that someone like this would exist.

    For to which of the angels did he say at any time, "You are my Son. Today have I become your father?" and again, "I will be to him a Father, and he will be to me a Son?" (Heb 1:5 RNWEB)

This is what was said prophetically about Yahshua who was going to be the FIRSTBORN amongst many new brethren, a new creation, the first of its kind.

One last note before we get back on subject, Yahshua didn’t become the Messiah (Christ, the anointed) until after his purification by Yochanan, this is when he became the anointed one. Yahshua was born "Ben David," Yahshua son of (king) David, when Yahshua was baptized (purified) he became Yahshua the anointed (Messiah, Christ). So beside everything else it’s impossible for Yahshua to have existed as the anointed before his purification.

The only reason there can be to come up with terms such as pre-incarnate Messiah or Christ is to deitize Yahshua so he can be worshipped, this is a gnostic agenda. We’re told in scripture to only give worship to the father, YAH.

    Then the king, when he heard these words, was sore displeased, and set his heart on Daniyel to deliver him; and he labored until the going down of the sun to rescue him. Then these men assembled together to the king, and said to the king, Know, O king, that it is a law of the Madai and Paras, that no interdict nor statute which the king establishes may be changed. Then the king commanded, and they brought Daniyel, and cast him into the den of lions. [Now] the king spoke and said to Daniyel, Your Elohim whom you serve continually, he will deliver you. A stone was brought, and laid on the mouth of the den; and the king sealed it with his own signet, and with the signet of his masters; that nothing might be changed concerning Daniyel. Then the king went to his palace, and passed the night fasting; neither were instruments of music brought before him: and his sleep fled from him. Then the king arose very early in the morning, and went in haste to the den of lions. When he came near to the den to Daniyel, he cried with a lamentable voice; the king spoke and said to Daniyel, Daniyel, servant of the living Elohim, is your Elohim, whom you serve continually, able to deliver you from the lions? Then said Daniyel to the king, O king, live forever. My Elohim has sent his angel, and has shut the lions’ mouths, and they have not hurt me; because as before him innocence was found in me; and also before you, O king, have I done no hurt. (Dan 6:14-22 RNWEB)

Daniyel said he was innocent, but how can this be when he broke the Kings commandment? He didn’t break Elohims commandment, he broke mans commandment, which can’t supercede Elohims. There are several times we find in scripture people who made a decision based on how a man ordained law would impact how they served YAH. Mans commandment was not allowed to supercede Elohims, even if it meant death. Remember what the three Hebrew children said before they were put in the furnace, "If it’s elohims desire he will deliver us, if not, be it known, we will not serve your elohim."

    It happened, when I, even I Daniyel, had seen the vision, that I sought to understand it; and behold, there stood before me as the appearance of a man. (Dan 8:15 RNWEB)

Notice the angel appeared as a man, scripture always has the theophanic angels appearing as men, there are no documented cases of one ever taking the form of a woman. This does not mean it’s not possible, however we can only present what we have a clear understanding of in scripture, to speculate further would just be supposition.

    It happened, when I, even I Daniyel, had seen the vision, that I sought to understand it; and behold, there stood before me as the appearance of a man. I heard a man’s voice between [the banks of] the Ulai, which called, and said, Gavri’el, make this man to understand the vision. So he came near where I stood; and when he came, I was frightened, and fell on my face: but he said to me, Understand, son of man; for the vision belongs to the time of the end. (Dan 8:15-17 RNWEB)

Daniyel had seen a vision and sought to understand it, and an angel appeared before him as a man. It’s very rare that an angel would appear in a form that he could actually be seen and talked to in a conscious state, they usually appeared in either a daydream or a night dream. Either way any encounter with a holy Angel is an encounter with Elohim, because the angel represents him.

    Now as he was speaking with me, I fell into a deep sleep with my face toward the ground; but he touched me, and set me upright. (Dan 8:18 RNWEB)

Daniyel was in a deep sleep, face down on the ground because he fainted after seeing the angel.

    He said, Behold, I will make you know what shall be in the latter time of the indignation; for it belongs to the appointed time of the end. (Dan 8:19 RNWEB)

The angel wasn’t doing this to make casual conversation, they would not use or speak to a man unless they were following the command of YAH to perform some type of theocratic work. A Holy Spirit will not dwell with any man or women unless there is a theocratic or ecclesiastical work to be accomplished. Once it is completed the spirit will leave and continue his mandate. For some reason Christianity propagates the doctrine that nothing can be accomplished without the Spirit, even the littlest things like breaking a bad habit. Scripture does not support this idea, did Noah, Shet, Abraham or Chanokh have help? All these men were found righteous in the eyes of the divine order and that’s what drew the Malachem toward them, saying "we have found you worthy." So unless we’re walking righteously to start with we will not be found worthy to be used by the Spirit, or for any type of theocratic or ecclesiastical assignment. In other words we have been conditioned by religious leaders over the years for failure, by the propagation of this false idea. We need to take the responsibility for changing our lives on ourselves and stop trying to make excuses.

    The ram which you saw, that had the two horns, they are the kings of Madai and Paras. (Dan 8:20 RNWEB)

The Angel is telling Daniyel what the vision means. Remember what Yoseph said to pharaoh, interpretations belong to Elohim. When YAH gives a dream or vision, he also needs to give someone an interpretation so it can be understood, which doesn’t necessarily have to be the person having the dream.

    The rough male goat is the king of Greece: and the great horn that is between his eyes is the first king. As for that which was broken, in the place where four stood up, four kingdoms shall stand up out of the nation, but not with his power. (Daniyel 8:21-22 RNWEB)
    While I was speaking, and praying, and confessing my sin and the sin of my people Yisra’el, and presenting my supplication before YAH my Elohim for the holy mountain of my Elohim; yes, while I was speaking in prayer, the man Gavri’el, whom I had seen in the vision at the beginning, being caused to fly swiftly, touched me about the time of the evening offering. He instructed me, and talked with me, and said, Daniyel, I am now come forth to give you wisdom and understanding. (Daniyel 9:20-22 RNWEB)

Daniyel says he was confessing his sin, but he was still considered righteous before YAH. Everyone commits a transgression now and again, and as long as we’re striving for perfection with a pure heart and confess the sin, we will still be looked on as righteous. We can walk toward perfection by meditating on the laws of Elohim, applying them, and severing our association with the lawless.

    To them it was revealed, that not to themselves, but to you, they ministered these things, which now have been announced to you through those who preached the Good News to you by the Holy Spirit sent out from heaven; which things angels desire to look into. (1 Peter 1:12 RNWEB)

"Them it was revealed", How did Daniyel receive his revelation, didn’t Gavri’el say "I’m now sent to give you skill and understanding" in the knowledge of these visions?

"Spirit sent from heaven", The Holy Angel that was sent down from heaven was the one who taught these things.

"Which messengers (Angels, Malachem) desire to look into", only select Angels know what goes on within the affairs of men.

    Let no one rob you of your prize by a voluntary humility and worshipping of the angels, dwelling in the things which he has not seen, vainly puffed up by his fleshly mind, (Colossians 2:18 RNWEB)

People directing their worship or attention toward angels, especially after going through a study like this is very common. The Malachem are doing the talking and work in all the situations we discussed, however YAH must receive the glory. We should not be focused on how things are accomplished but who gave the command in the first place. When the president gives the order to go to war, thousands of men are going to battle, there is a command hierarchy from the president down. Ultimately when the war is won, the president gets the credit. No one is giving great esteem to the troops but to the leader. We must think of the Kingdom of YAH as a divine order, and not look at who is accomplishing the task but the one who created the beings and is giving the orders to bring his ultimate plan to fulfillment.
