“For such are false apostles, deceitful workers, transforming themselves into workers of Christ. And no wonder! For Satan himself transforms himself into an angel light. Therefore, it is no great thing if his ministers also transform themselves into ministers of righteousness, whose end will be according to their works,” - 2 Cor. 11:4, 13-15.

THE SEVEN ANGELS OF THE SEVEN CHURCHES
Visiting prophets, pastors, and teachers are increasingly cross-pollinating the churches with dangerous inter-denominational doctrines. In the process, they focus the attention of believers on strange charismatic ‘signs and wonders,’ ‘personal’ angels under their command, and other strange, unscriptural phenomena. Unbelievably, some, such as the Apostolic Churches, even allege that church pastors have ‘become’ angels! And many from the Pentecostal and other denominations are following suit. As with every other twisted doctrine, they get this silly theory from misinterpreting a Bible verse or even a whole passage. In this case, they abuse John’s letters to the seven churches in Revelation Chapters 2 and 3, which declares, “To the angel of the church of Ephesus… Smyrna… Pergamos…” However, the truth is always in the context of the passage or verse. We need only to read the very first verse of Revelation Chapter One to understand exactly what the phase, “the seven angels of the seven churches” really means.
Þ The opening statement of the Book of Revelation reads as follows, (Rev. 1:1,) “The Revelation of Jesus Christ, which God gave Him to show His servants, [or every sincere believer of Christ, the New Testament, royal priesthood, Rev. 5:9-10; 1 Pt. 2:9-10,] things which must shortly take place. And He, [Jesus,] sent and signified it by [or via] His angel, [which is an angelic messenger, or one of God's servant spirits, Heb. 1:7,14,] to His [human] servant John, who bore witness to the Word of God..." This is not difficult to understand. Jesus Christ Himself sent several angelic (spirit) messengers to deliver the Book of Revelation with its specific end-time prophesies to His human servant John, who in turn, related that information to the rest of Jesus’ body of believers in writing.
A human being can never be, or become a supernatural angel. They are two different species! On God’s creation scale, angels are ‘higher’ than human beings. That is why Heb. 2:7-9 say, “[God made the human being Jesus] a little lower than the angels… [But being God at the same time,] He put all in subjection under Him…” Col. 1:16, “For by [Jesus] all things were created that are in heaven and on earth, visible and invisible…” Heb. 1:1-14, “Let all the angels worship Him… Who makes His angels… ministering spirits, [whom He sends] forth to minister to [His human believers.]”
Yet, in Rev. 22:8-9, John stressed the fact that both the holy angelic species and the born again human species are the messengers of Christ. They work together under the banner of Jesus to bring His Gospel of Grace from the supernatural realm into the natural realm and so, they combine forces to declare God’s Word to a lost and dying world – and to believers who are lost in the many false doctrines, norms, and forms of Christianity. John testified, “Now I, John, saw and heard these things [which the angel had shown him,] and I fell down to worship before the feet of the angel... Then he said, ‘See that you do not do that. For I am your fellow servant, and of your brethren the prophets, and of those who keep the words of this book. Worship God.’”
ANGELS ARE REAL, BUT SO ARE DEMONS WHO CAN TAKE ON MANY FORMS SUCH AS ‘FAIRIES’
In his book, ‘Masters of Deception,’ F.W. Thomas related this incredible testimony, “I was a young man of twenty when I joined the merchant marine. One day while having lifeboat drill in the midst of the Atlantic Ocean, I was at my station on deck, waiting for orders to do my part in guiding the soon to be released lifeboat over the side. It weighed thousands of pounds, but I had to stand directly in the path that the boat would swing upon being released so I could see the captain on the bridge. Upon his command I was to step out of the way. While waiting for the signal, suddenly a pair of strong hands grabbed me at the back of my knees, knocking my legs out from under me. I fell to the deck of the ship and turned to see who had played this joke on me. To my utter amazement, there was no one near me! A few inches from where I now lay was the ship’s edge and beyond this the open sea. Cargo ships did not have railings on the lifeboat deck. At the same instant, I suddenly became aware of the swish of the lifeboat now swinging directly over my head! The lifeboat had come loose prematurely. The men working on it were unable to notify the captain, and he could not signal me to move out of the way. Had I not been grabbed by unseen hands and made to fall to the deck, I would have been hit by the swinging boat and knocked into the sea… On the bridge, the captain declared in awe, ‘Man, but you have amazing reflexes!’” This book, an analysis of the anti-Scriptural teachings of the Jehovah’s Witnesses Society, was one of the reasons why God commanded His angel that day to save F.W. Thomas’ life.
Late one night, my son came to wake me up as a man from our congregation was banging urgently on our locked garden gate. As he sat down in the lounge, three ‘fairy lights’ followed him and floated directly in front of his face, clearly threatening him. I immediately recognized the dot-like lights as demons, and began to rebuke them in the Name of the Lord Jesus Christ. Then, suddenly, God opened my spiritual eyes and I ‘saw’ that there was a massive spiritual war raging in the air all around us. I couldn’t see them clearly, but many angels and demons were fighting one another, and the Holy Spirit moved us to assist the angels by praying against the forces of evil, (Gen. 3:24; Mt. 26:52-52; 1 Chron. 21:16; Ps. 91:11, etc.)
This lasted for a long time. Then, just as suddenly as it began, all was quiet. Nevertheless, the man refused point blank to leave our home. It was the beginning of the Easter weekend, and we remained pinned down in our home while ministering to this man until he was ready to face the world 'out there' again. During that long weekend, we were harassed and attacked by demons in many upsetting ways, but I knew that God’s holy angels were there all the time. Once we even heard a scuffle inside the house as evil forces attacked the angels, although, that time, I could not see any of them.
In counseling, I discovered that this man's father was a Satanist, who sexually molested and physically abused him from an early age. (Satanists in all their various forms always make a pact with the devil concerning the lives and souls of their descendants.) The visitor fiercely hated his mother for not protecting him against this wicked man. He also had sexual relations with his sister, and was into all kinds of demonic games like dungeons-and-dragons and glassy-glassy, (a ‘game’ in which people consult spirits, who move a glass on a table.) Although he had accepted Jesus Christ as his personal Lord and Savior, he slipped back into occult sin on occasion, and seemed powerless to overcome his past. During that weekend God helped him to openly and honestly share all his anger, fear, and sorrows with Jesus, breaking every yoke in the Name of the Lord Jesus Christ, and destroying the most important footholds, which the devil had gained in his thoughts and life.
CHRISTIAN GUIDING ANGELS
God does indeed send His innumerable holy angels to assist us in our everyday struggles here one earth. Nevertheless, the secular media, as well as religion, (Christianity as well,) are paying way too much attention to angels and other strange phenomena, instead of focusing on the Creator of all the angels, the Lord Jesus Christ, (Heb. 1:1-14.) Thus, believers have good reason to be careful of accounts of angelic apparitions and especially the escalating notion of ‘guiding’ and other ‘personal’ angels under control of Christians. We can never delete angels from our spiritual lives in Christ. However, true believers all have the indwelling Holy Spirit Who is their Teacher, Helper, and Who guides them into “all truth” of Scripture and everything else, (Jn. 16:8-13.) There is no doubt that God uses His angel armies as well as particular angels to do certain jobs. But we are to always focus on God not on the angels. Wonderful and powerful as they are, and however grateful we are for their supernatural ministry, they always remain totally under the control of God; utterly committed to Him Alone. We must be very wary when the focus is moved from God to angels.
For instance: Let’s quickly test the popular ‘Christian’ television series, ‘Touched By An Angel.’ In this series, God, or “The Father,” is never identified as the Lord Jesus Christ, (Isa. 9:6; Rev. 1:6-8,) The Name of Jesus is never mentioned, (unless I missed it completely) while Jesus Himself stated, “I Am the Way, the Truth and the Light, and no one comes to the Father except through Me,” (Jn. 14:6.) After all, the Godhead of Father, Son, and Holy Spirit is One God, (Col. 2:9; Jn. 14:8-11; 15:26.) Also, the entire context of Scripture mentions only male angels, the “sons of God,” and so we can know for certain that female angels do not exist. When we hear of, or see a ‘female’ angel, it is a demon pretending to be female, not a holy angel of God. Through the ages, very few people tried to depict holy angels as females — until lately when angel worship in it’s many forms became rife on a global scale.
Most believers completely ignore the fact that Satan turns himself into an angel of light to deceive gullible souls, (2 Cor. 11:14.) They simply disregard God’s stern warning not to willfully and unnecessarily indulge in conversations with supernatural beings, or to seek the presence, counsel, guidance, protection, and fellowship of angels directly, but to worship, consult, follow, trust, and obey God above all else, (Deut. 18:9-14; Rev. 19:10.)
TEST THE SPIRITS TO SEE WHETHER THEY ARE OF GOD
1 John 4:1-4 guide us by the following rule when it comes to supernatural encounters. While humans under the control of demons can say anything, it seems that a disembodied evil spirit simply cannot admit that Jesus Christ has come in the flesh, which a holy angel, on the other hand, will be ready and able to confess.
Whenever we meet a spirit, then, (whether in the form of a holy angel or a demon pretending to be holy - or even a spirit in the form of the Lord Jesus Christ,) it remains our personal responsibility to test that spirit by asking, "Who are you?" Paul also, when confronted by Jesus on the road to Damascus, asked, "Who are you, Lord?" In other words, "Are you really God, or sent by God, and how can I know that for sure?"
Even when we meet a holy angel who speaks to us, ‘guides’ us, or something similar, we must ‘test’ him to see if he is of God. He might look like an angel of light, and even 'do good' like one, but unless he confesses that Jesus Christ has come in the flesh, we dare not believe him. Our 'simple' obedience to the truthful context of Scripture will always protect us.
Þ We should be especially on our guard against unscriptural apparitions and other supernatural phenomena, and, for valid reasons, even the appearance of holy angels should not be accepted without caution. Besides the escalating appearances of angels, (especially since 1998,) there are many accounts of apparitions by a Jesus spirit, particularly among Roman Catholic and Muslim communities. This Jesus even appears through switched-off television sets to convince people that he is ‘the christ,’ knowing that naive people will follow him without question, (1 Jn. 4:1-4.)
In fact, “the christ” of Catholicism is not the Lord Jesus Christ of the Bible, but the Cosmic Christ, which teaches the doctrine of Universalism, (everyone can go to heaven by his or her own ‘light’ or ‘christ’ as a Buddhist, Hindu, Muslim, Christian…) Many Protestants preach the same universal Jesus. In Catholicism and even in traditional and other Protestantism their christ is the mystical, eucharist christ, obtainable through their Mass or ‘holy’ communion, when the priest or minister, through transubstantiation, turns the ‘eucharist,’ their wafer bread and wine, into the ‘literal’ body of their christ, and they eat the eucharist cannibalistically and drink his blood vampireously. The Catholic eucharist or little round wafer bread is commonly used in many Protestant churches as well.
Undoubtedly, the real Lord Jesus Christ, Who is God Himself, has the ability to reveal Himself in whichever way He chooses, but Scripturally, God has already revealed everything we need to know through the Bible. Paul explained in Rom. 1:19-20, ‘What may be known of God is manifest, for God has shown it to them [through the magnificence of His creation,] even His eternal power and Godhead [of Father, Son, and Holy Spirit,] so that they are without excuse…’ And in Rom. 3:21; 16:25, ‘For now the righteousness of God apart from the law [or Old Testament covenant Heb. 8:13] is revealed… [by the true context of the New Testament Gospel of the Lord Jesus Christ.]
Þ Scripture does not state that God will reveal His Son, or His Gospel, through ghostly apparitions. On the contrary, in the account of the rich man and Lazarus, Jesus Himself declared, ‘[The Jews] have Moses and the prophets, [or the Old Testament; the ‘Bible’ of that time,] let them hear them… If they do not hear [the Scriptures,] neither will they be persuaded though one rises from the dead…’ (Lu. 16:29-31.)
TESTING THE AUTHENTICITY AND SINCERITY OF PEOPLE
Many years ago, I knew a pastor who preached fiery, soul-turning sermons, and the peace of God surrounded him like a physical cloak. I also believed he was a great man of God, until I got to know him better. I then found that he was spitefully disobedient to clear-cut Scriptural commandments, but mercilessly strict on trivial religious matters; dreadfully hard-headed and unteachable, and in the end, he revealed himself as an unscrupulous lover of money.
This was very confusing, until the Holy Spirit reminded me of Jesus’ words in Mt. 7:15-20. Jesus did not say, we will know one another by our anointing, peace, gifts, knowledge, charisma, or material wealth. Jesus said we will know one another by our 'fruit;' our continual good (and Godly,) or bad (and evil) behavior.
The truth of the Word, viewed in the whole context of Scripture, will always remain our only reliable guide when it comes to teaching, prophecy and ministry - but also when it comes to the unseen spiritual world, and the spirit beings who live in that world. Testing the sincerity and motives of people, however, is more complicated, as a human being can and does confess whatever he or she chooses, (Mt. 7:15-20.)
We all have to live by grace, for we ‘stumble in many things,’ (Jam. 3:2.) Thus, our fruits are our continual behavior in this world, which, over a period of time, reveal our real character, spiritual state, priorities, and true intentions. So, the corporate and individual accountability of the bride of Christ are also vital to her defense against deception, (2 Cor. 5:10.)
As a result, Paul wrote, “Two or three prophets may speak [in a meeting, while] the others must judge… And the [human] spirits of the prophets are under the control of the prophets, [so that no one will fly off in wild compulsion,] because God is not the author of confusion, but of peace,” (1 Ths. 5:23; 1 Cor. 14:29-32.)
God will never override our personal responsibility to control our minds, human spirits, (1 Ths. 5:23,) decisions, and behavior, because He has given us a free will and a sound mind, (2 Tim. 1:7.) God always deals with us on a “know-this-take-heed” basis, and expects us to understand and obey. (“Know this, that in the last days…” “Take heed that no one deceives you…” And: “Take heed how you hear… Lu. 8:18.) God will never think or decide for us, but increasingly, He will empower us to think more clearly and act more soberly or self-controlled under the Scriptural direction of the Holy Spirit, (1 Ths. 5:5-8.) For a lack of accountability, responsibility, and healthy discipline, many mortal wounds are inflicted on the believers of Christ on a daily basis, (Mt. 18:15-20.)
FALSE GIFTS OPERATING AS THE GIFTS OF THE HOLY SPIRIT
Testing our own gifts and motives, as well as the gifts, ministry and motives of others in the light of Scripture is another necessary component of our defense against deception.
God sends His angels to help and/or warn His believers when we, or our loved ones, are in trouble.
It is also Scriptural that angels might appear to us under dire circumstances. What’s more, the Holy Spirit Himself, living inside all true believers, is able to guide us and keep us from all harm, (Ps. 23.)
True believers do experience Godly visions and dreams, and the Holy Spirit’s Scriptural gifts of “tongues, divine wisdom, knowledge in Word interpretation, prophecy, the discernment of spirits, and the gift of extraordinary faith to perform healings and miracles,” (1 Cor. 12:4-11.)
Nonetheless, believers must be aware of the fact that the devil is able to counterfeit nearly every gift of the Holy Spirit and miracle of Jesus, just as Pharaoh’s magicians were able to imitate nearly every sign of Moses. We should seriously question situations where angels and other apparitions and/or voices constantly guide people in unimportant, everyday matters such as what color shoes to wear, and so on. And we must be extremely skeptical about any gift or miracle which manifests itself through guiding angels, dots or orbs, or any other apparition.
As said, we must always test the spirits to see whether they are of God, (1 Ths. 5:21; 1 Jn. 4:1-4.) And we should always allow the conviction of the Holy Spirit, through the contextual truth of Scripture, to ‘be the lamp for our feet’ in the unknown darkness of the spiritual world.
Þ Sadly, many false spirits are operating unchecked among the body of Christ. Most believers accept every prophecy, teaching and spiritual manifestation at face value, while God warned in Deut. 28:9-14, “ You shall not learn to follow the abominations of [pagans.] There shall not be found among you anyone who… practices witchcraft, or a soothsayer, (fortune-teller,) or one who interprets omens, or a sorcerer, or one who conjures spells, or a medium, (who consults spirits,) or a spiritist, (who manifests or ‘channels’ spirits,) or one who calls up the dead. (Such apparitions are in fact evil spirits, masquerading as the spirits of dead people.) For all who do these things is an abomination to the Lord…”
According to the context of Scripture, the Spirit doesn’t give us a 'know-all' gift, which enables us to judge every situation instantly or prophecy over every person just by looking at them. That is the false ‘gift’ of divination. Sadly, many such ‘gifted prophets,’ like the well-known Kim Clement, are nothing more than fortune-tellers. (I personally experienced his manipulative techniques to extract information from unsuspecting believers while whispering to them, which he then screams out as revelations from God.) Notwithstanding the fact that most of Clement’s prophecies are extremely false, he also invites incredibly false heresies, chaos, and deceptive spirits to get hold of the thoughts and lives of believers through his ungodly declaration, “We want some unaccountable impulse to come into our services…’ God is not the author of confusion or chaos, but of order, (1 Cor. 14:33.)
Such arrogant disobedience to Jesus’ direct commandment to accountability, is rooted in the charismatic declarations of mason Kenneth Copeland, “When I read in the Bible where it says ‘I Am,’ I just smile and say, ‘Yes, I Am too!’”
This means that where Jesus proclaims, “I Am the Resurrection and the Life… I Am the Way, the Truth and the Life… I Am the True Vine… I Am the Good Shepherd…” the false ‘christ’ Kenneth Copeland actually proclaims the same!
And Paul Crouch and others confirm, “We’re God, yes, I Am a little God!” (Mt. 18:15-19, 1 Cor. 14:29-33; Mt. 24:5 & 11.)
