They were in step, standing as tall as people. There he was…so big.
He looked young, probably the age of the first Adam when he was created. The most handsome man I had ever seen in my whole life, he had a commanding presence. He was in perfection. His shoulder-length hair was combed back over the ears and turned up at the ends. He looked like a warrior. I studied his face—he was that close to me—the expression; the overwhelming presence of him was awesome.
He had that wonderful look of Jesus Christ. I couldn't get enough of looking at him. I have lived and relived it. The Lord didn't identify him as Michael: He only said He would send multitudes of angels. Angels do not show up and stand by a person to heal. Every time an angel came speaking or seen in the New Testament it has either something to do with the Messiah like Joseph and Mary- Matt ; Luke or for an apostle for the church usually Paul and Peter to be instructed or delivered Acts ; Acts ; Acts All of these are not normal or repetitive occurrences.
He gives me names, initials and different details of a person's life so that that one will know I am describing him or her.
The Lord's light will shine with miracles tonight. I work with angels in every miracle service. The angel of the Lord stands by my side and tells me different things, directs me. There no longer is the angel of the Lord since the incarnation of the Son, so one must question what kind of angel this is visiting him and giving him power. Where does the Bible say the Lord uses angels to help anyone go through to the baptism of the Holy Spirit, and receive physical miracles?
Where does the Bible ever teach this sharing of power and ability with angels, which is exclusive to the Holy Spirit; clearly this is a misinterpretation of ministering spirits. Angley instructed them to hold up their fingers and allow an angel to put the power of God on them. To say angels give the baptism of the Spirit is concerning when the Bible says Jesus is the baptizer. Angley is mesmerized by angels, his ministry is empowered by angels; he sees them all the time, which again is unbiblical and dangerous.
It is a very rare occasion when God allows people to see his invisible ministers at work. Some say the Angel statue holding a trumpet is the memorial for Rev. Ernest Angley's wife who passed away years ago. Baptism of the Spirit As previously stated Angley believes angels help give the baptism of the Spirit. Nowhere is this found in Scripture. Angley has widened the Pentecostal interpretation of the baptism of the Spirit. However, the apostle Paul in scripture warns us not to go beyond what is written, that is our basis for knowing if we are teaching and practicing correct Bible doctrine or not.
When the Holy Ghost comes in to set up His abode within a life today, He does just what He did on the day of Pentecost: with another tongue He speaks through the person being baptized. Speaking in tongues is the initial evidence of the Holy Ghost baptism. He cites all the scriptures where there are tongues to prove his point Isaiah Isaiah I Corinthians John Jesus said that the Spirit would testify, and that the disciples would be the ones to witness.
And ye also shall bear witness, because ye have been with me from the beginning, John But ye shall receive power, after that the Holy Ghost is come upon you: and ye shall be witnesses unto me both in Jerusalem, and in all Judaea, and in Samaria, and unto the uttermost part of the earth, Acts These verses speak of the witness by the disciples; read them along with John which plainly tells that the Holy Ghost will speak when He comes in.
Acts Citing Acts , Acts as proof that people spoke with tongues after Pentecost therefore it is necessary today to show you are baptized in the spirit.
If you ever receive the real Holy Ghost as the disciples did on the day of Pentecost, you, too, will speak with tongues. Paul was talking to believers here. To be a believer means your sins are gone.
These people received something more than the born-again experience. Speaking in tongues does not make one spirituality superior to those who do not have this ability If they think this they are showing they are actually spiritually immature.
The Bible instead teaches having a self controlled life; a spiritual life is what pleases God, thus producing the fruit of the Spirit. If one actually reads the text we do not see the 3, that were saved on Pentecost speaking in tongues, they heard the disciples from the upper room speak in their own tongues. There is also the statement in Acts "are not all these who speak Galileans?
In Acts 4 where 5, were saved there were no tongues mentioned either. Were they not saved? One cannot make this a pattern that continues in our day. In Acts 10 the non believing Gentiles received the Spirit before the message was complete unlike Acts 2 it was given to those who believed already.
In Acts 19 both tongues and prophecy were exhibited. And No this group of men were not believers in Christ as Angley claims. It says they found disciples. Years after they had not heard that the one John was pointing to had already come.
It wasn't from Paul's hands that it was transferred GR. If one wants to make a doctrine from a few scriptures than we can conclude from this that everyone must also prophecy, not just speak in a tongue. All believers have the Spirit, not all believers live under His control, even those who speak in tongues. Being filled with the Spirit means being under His control.
Not one verse of Scripture says it is necessary to speak in tongues to have salvation as Angley and other extreme Pentecostals claim. Paul, Peter nor John ever taught such a doctrine. When Paul received salvation it does not say he spoke in tongues until later, yet he was saved on the road to Damascus. When he gives his testimony he refers back to the Damascus road encounter as the time of his Spiritual birth l Cor. John the baptizer was filled with the Spirit from the womb and never spoke in a tongue.
Angley professes to have a number of unusual unbiblical gifts. I lay hands on people, and they receive the gift of the Holy Ghost. I'm able to see the fire and I want you to see the results of it. Lift up your hands as I call the Holy Spirit upon you, and don't stop praising the Lord until the Holy Ghost speaks through you. This is that that Joel the prophet said would be poured out.
When you take the Holy Ghost in, you take the miracle-worker. Where did the fire ever appear over peoples heads again as it did on Pentecost? Where do we hear of an apostle calling down the Holy Ghost? Angley is unaware of the uniqueness of the apostles ministry and how God brought people into the Body of Christ through them. The Bible teaches that the baptism of the Spirit is a salvation experience to bring people into unity of the body and proves it by the few times it is mentioned.
For by one Spirit we were all baptized into one body-- whether Jews or Greeks, whether slaves or free-- and have all been made to drink into one Spirit. I'd turn to the second chapter of Acts, put my finger on the passage describing how the Holy Ghost fell on the day of Pentecost, and say, "God, this is what I want.
I had left the world to never go back, knowing it would take a lot of power, the power of the Holy Ghost. There is no teaching by an apostle to the church to pursue what is classified as a baptism in the Spirit because it was what occurred when someone was saved. Seeking the baptism of the Spirit is simply not taught in Scripture, it is given by Jesus as a salvation experience. They did not seek it at Pentecost or any of the outpourings in the book of Acts.
It was a gift given freely. Tongues were always given unexpectedly Acts 2, 10, 19 they were not expecting to see this sign gift. We are commanded to be continually filled with the Spirit, not to seek for the baptism as something we don't have after we believe.
That would be disbelieving the word. Angley believes in a conditional rapture of only sinless believers. There are those who misunderstand when I say the Bible teaches you must have the Holy Ghost baptism to make the Rapture; they think I mean that no one can go to heaven without the Holy Ghost baptism. Israel doubted God, and because of her unbelief she limited God and failed for forty years to go into the land of Canaan.
Anyone who limits God never receives His best. To be caught up to meet the Lord in the air and escape the Tribulation Period would certainly be Gods best. At Pentecost the early rain fell: But this is that which was spoken by the prophet Joel Acts AndI will pour out my spirit upon all flesh Joel The Early Church is our pattern today.
You Must Receive the Holy Ghost and Speak in Tongues in the Latter Rain The Holy Ghost had control and wrought mighty miracles in the midst of the people; then the devil wormed his way into the Church and she lost her power. That which the palmerworm hath left hath the locust eaten; and that which the locust hath left hath the cankerworm eaten; and that which the cankerworm hath left hath the caterpiller eaten Joel Joel said this would happen to the Church and it did.
For almost 2, years God has waited for the harvest of the latter rain; James said he had waited with long patience for it. And I will restore to you the years that the locust hath eaten, the cankerworm, and the caterpiller, and the palmerworm, my great army which I sent among you Joel Yes, the Lord said He would restore the power to the Church in the last days.
Now that power is here. Why do you think He promised to pour out His Spirit on us in the last days if it were not necessary in our preparation for His coming? Again in Acts He said, I will pour out in those days of my Spirit.
Whatever keeps you from receiving the Holy Ghost in an age of the downpour of the Spirit will certainly keep you out of the Rapture.
No one can be caught up in the Rapture without first receiving the Holy Ghost baptism. What was one of the signs that followed believers? Speaking in tongues. If one is a complete Bible believer he will receive the Holy Ghost. For what if some did not believe? God forbid: yea, let God be true, but every man a liar; as it is written, That thou mightest be justified in thy sayings, and mightest overcome when thou are judged Romans ,4.
The faith of God surely includes yielding to the Holy Ghost. Believe the Word of God over the theories of man. Teachings against the Holy Ghost baptism are in conflict with the Word of God which states that tongues is one of the signs that shall follow believers.
Because thou hast kept the word of my patience, I also will keep thee from the hour of temptation, which shall come upon all the world, to try them that dwell upon the earth. Him that overcometh will I make a pillar in the temple of my God Revelation God considered it necessary for Jesus to have the Holy Ghost; and it is vital that you have that power within you, too, if you are to be an overcomer for the Lord.
The overcomers only will be taken at Jesus return. Jesus Is Coming after a Church without Spot or Wrinkle That he might present it to himself a glorious church, not having spot, or wrinkle, or any such thing; but that it should be holy and without blemish Ephesians Who is she that looketh forth as the morning, fair as the moon, clear as the sun, and terrible as an army with banners Song of Solomon ?
This is speaking of the Bride of Christ, a Bride without blemish, fair and beautiful to behold. It will take the Holy Ghost to give the Church such power to conquer, such purity devoid of spots and wrinkles. Lukewarm Christian, He will spew you into the Tribulation Period.
Christ shall give thee light. See then that ye walk circumspectly, not as fools, but as wise, Redeeming the time, because the days are evil. This is the pattern for the Spirit-filled life; the ones who will be taken in the Rapture will be alive in His Spirit as they await His coming. And at midnight there was a cry made, Behold, the bridegroom cometh; go ye out to meet him verse 6.
The five foolish virgins took their lamps, but NO OIL, and they said to the wise virgins, Give us of your oil; for our lamps are gone out verse 8. After the bridegroom came they tried to get this oil so that they would be acceptable, but it was too late. The Lord said, I say unto you, I know you not verse Without the oil, the Holy Spirit, you will not be taken in the Rapture.
Watch therefore, for ye know neither the day nor the hour wherein the Son of man cometh verse Death will not have a chance at those taken in the Rapture. On the other hand, Hebrews tells us: And as it is appointed unto men once to die, but after this the judgment.
How can this be done? By finding favor in the eyes of God through complete yielding to the Holy Ghost. Enoch walked with God, and God took him Genesis His family was not caught up with him; they had to go the way of the grave. Elijah, like Enoch, is also a type of the raptured Christian. Elijah was caught up II Kings while others who loved God were left behind.
They did not all go to hell; they simply did not find the favor with God it takes to be caught up. It takes more to be raptured than to go the way of the grave. In Genesis, the twenty-fourth chapter, we have another beautiful picture of a type and shadow of the Rapture.
Abraham is a type of God, and Abrahams servant, a type of the Holy Ghost. Isaac is a type of Christ, and Rebekah is a type of the Bride of Christ. Abraham sent his servant into another country to find a bride for Isaac.
It takes something very special to be caught away with the Lord. In our day it will take the Holy Ghost baptism. And when he had opened the fifth seal, I saw under the altar the souls of them that were slain for the word of God, and for the testimony which they held: And they cried with a loud voice, saying, How long, O Lord, holy and true, dost thou not judge and avenge our blood on them that dwell on the earth?
And white robes were given unto every one of them; and it was said unto them, that they should rest yet for a little season, until their fellowservants also and their brethren, that should be killed as they were, should be fulfilled Revelation This verse is talking about Christians left behind in the Tribulation Period. Jesus will come as a thief in the night and gather up His jewels I Thessalonians ; how do you expect to have the sparkle that He requires without the Holy Ghost?
Thou hast a few names even in Sardis which have not defiled their garments; and they shall walk with me in white: for they are worthy Revelation Ye stiffnecked and uncircumcised in heart and ears, ye do always resist the Holy Ghost Acts The man child is the , spoken of again in the fourteenth chapter of Revelation.
And she brought forth a man child, who was to rule all nations with a rod of iron: and her child was caught up unto God, and to his throne. And the woman fled into the wilderness Revelation ,6. Out of the millions of Jews in the twelve tribes of Israel, , are to be caught up to God in the middle of the Tribulation Period. Why are these caught up? These were redeemed from among men, being the firstfruits unto God and to the Lamb Revelation The ,, the man child of Revelation , find favor with God and are caught up while the remaining millions of Jews are left behind, still in the Tribulation Period.
Note the , are all men: These are they which were not defiled with women; for they are virgins Revelation However, because the main part of the nation of Israel will not be caught up does not mean that they are lost.
No, they are saved, but left behind to go through all the tribulation. Do you think God will excuse you for your disobediences when He did not excuse Lots wife? Neighbor, obey the Lord as Peter and the other apostles did when they said in Acts , We ought to obey God rather than men.
Remember, in Noahs day only eight people out of all the multitudes on the face of the earth went into the ark. The others were left to suffer the wrath of God. Those who have not received the Holy Ghost baptism when Jesus comes will remain on earth to suffer the wrath of God also. Put on the whole armour of God, that ye may be able to stand against the wiles of the devil Ephesians , How can you be ready for the Rapture without the whole armor?
