The Ministry Of Angels In A Christian Live




Christians are so much aware of the ministry of the Holy Spirit, But they are ignorant about the ministry of Angels.
The ministry of angels has always been there since God created the world.

Angels are a little higher in strength, intelligence, vigour, power and might than man But they are meant to minister (Serve) saints
Psalms 8:4-5
4 - What is man, that thou art mindful of him? and the son of man, that thou visitest him?
5-
For thou hast made him a little lower than the angels, and hast crowned him with glory and honour.

Hebrews 1:14 -
Are they not all ministering spirits, sent forth to minister for them who shall be heirs of salvation?
Angels are meant to serve you. If they are not, something is missing in your life
