Functions of Angels
When Jesus was arrested in the garden of Gethsemane and taken before Pontius Pilate, He told those present that there were over twelve legions of angels at his disposal. That equates to 12,000 angels. “Or do you think that I cannot now pray to My Father, and He will provide Me with more than twelve legions of angels?” (Matthew 26:53). How many angels do you have? Does it make any difference how many Angels are appointed to you? All who are born again have at least one angel appointed to watch over us and report to the Lord about our actions.
Different angels have different functions. They are not stamped out of the same mold. Each angel has an appointed assignment. Gabriel was sent to Daniel to give him understanding. He was also sent to give understanding to Zacharias, the father of John the Baptist and to Mary, mother of Jesus. “Zacharias said to the angel (Gabriel), ‘How shall I know this? For I am an old man, and my wife is well advanced in years'” (Luke 1:8).Then the angel (Gabriel) said to her, ‘Do not be afraid, Mary, for you have found favor with God. And behold, you will conceive in you womb and bring forth a Son, and shall call His name JESUS'” (Luke 1:30).
The archangel Michael, however, was created to be a warring spirit. Many times Michael was involved in fighting the enemies of God and enemies of God’s people. Satan cannot stand against Michael and his angels, for they are always victorious.
At that time Michael shall stand up, the great prince who stands watch over the sons of your people; and there shall be a time of trouble, Such as never was since there was a nation, even to that time. And at that time your people shall be delivered, everyone who is found written in the book. (Ref. Daniel 12:1)
“Yet Michael the archangel, in contending with the devil, when he disputed about the body of Moses, dared not bring against him a reviling accusation, but said, ‘The Lord rebuke you!'” (Ref. Jude 1:9).
“And war broke out in heaven: Michael and his angels fought with the dragon; and the dragon and his angels fought, but they did not prevail, nor was a place found for them in heaven any longer” (Rev. 12:7, 8).
Michael and Gabriel are the only two angels mentioned by name throughout the Bible; however, their functions are quite different. In fact, in the book of Daniel, Michael comes to Gabriel’s aid when he is unable to fight his way through the demonic principalities of the air (Daniel 10:13). It is obvious that angels have different powers. They apparently are not all equal, receiving various measures of power and favor from God.
Andrea saw in the spirit realm a dark form rise up and hover over the body of the pastor as he lay on the floor of the sanctuary. She immediately began to rebuke it believing that because it was a dark form, it was evil. As soon as she began her rebuke the Lord said, “What are you doing?” She replied, “I am casting out this demon.” Then the Lord informed her that this was not a demon but rather an Angel. He went on to explain that he was His Warring Angel, appointed to watch over the pastor of the church.
Puzzled, Andrea began to pray to the Lord for understanding. She found her confirmation while reading a book by Kenneth Hagin. In the book, Papa Hagin referred to black angels as Warring Angels. The book indicated that he had met many people through the years who had given similar eyewitness accounts of visitations of Warring Angels. It just goes to show you cannot judge a book by its cover or an angel by its form.
Angels as God’s Messengers
Many of the brand name preachers have turned to humanistic teachings when it comes to the supernatural; attempting to explain away the spiritual gifts through their teaching, saying that the works of Christ Jesus are not for today.
A book by a well-known preacher whose name I will not reveal teaches that Jacob’s self-will gave him the power to change the color and markings of his father-in-law, Laban’s, goats. This made Jacob’s flock larger than Laban’s; therefore, Jacob obtained greater riches and wealth, giving him power over his father-in-law. This humanistic teaching goes on to say that Jacob envisioned or meditated into existence the speckled and striped goats marked for his flock.
The truth is that while Jacob was sleeping, an angel came to him and gave him the revelation that the crossbred goats, speckled and striped, would increase in number. So Jacob made a wager with Laban that every speckled and striped goat would be added to his flock. This is how Jacob obtained the larger flock, by the word of the Lord given through an angel in a dream (Genesis 31:1-16). Even to this day it is a well-known in the ranching industry that crossbred animals produce healthier and more offspring; as were Jacobs flock.
The will of every person is to be in control of his or her surroundings and future. We are commanded, however, to die to the man within us and allow the Spirit of God to guide us into the unknown. It takes true faith in God to allow the Holy Spirit, who we cannot see, to lead us in the direction God desires for our destiny. If we follow the flesh, we will not experience the awesome adventures and blessings God has for.
It is very easy to overlook the obvious truth found in the scriptures when a dynamic orator spins his teachings into his own philosophy. I do not mean to be critical of others and their teaching; however, we need not stray from the truths recorded in the Bible.
The will of every person is to be in control of his or her surroundings and future. We are commanded to die to the old man within us and allow the Spirit of God to guide us into the unknown. It takes true faith in God to allow the spirit, whom you cannot see, to lead you in the direction God desires for our destiny. If we follow the flesh, we cannot experience the awesome adventures God has for us in the spirit.
I do believe the Holy Spirit and the angels of God minister to us and FOR us. There is a difference in hearing the Holy Spirit and hearing an angel of the Lord. First of all, the Holy Spirit is part of the Godhead. An angel is a messenger from the throne of God. It is very clear when the Holy Spirit is speaking, yet it is a little fuzzy when an angel speaks. When the Holy Spirit speaks it sounds so clear that you may think you heard Him audibly. When receiving a message from an angel of God, it is like what Apostle Paul said, “Like looking through a glass dimly.” (Ref. 1 Corinthians 13:12) Either way, if you’re sure of your source, then obey either one you cannot go wrong.
You will find very few Spirit-filled Christians who disagree that a person can be demon possessed. If Satan has possession of a person’s spirit, soul and body, he can use that person to fulfill his evil deeds.
We see on television from time to time where a convict confesses that the devil took full control over his mind and body. He may say, “I did not know what I was doing.” Now, the jury of the world is still out on whether or not this can happen; however, you and I know it can happen and it has happened far too many times.
Identifying the works of the devil is easy, and those works are reported daily in the news media. It is acceptable for us to say, “Yes, a person can be demon possessed.” However, many refuse to believe an angel can possess a person. Why is this? Both angels and demons are spiritual beings directed by two separate forces, either by the Holy Spirit or Satan. The possessor of one’s spirit will determine who has eternal rights over the person’s body, soul and spirit.
Recorded supernatural events over many centuries tell us how possessed people have accomplished phenomenal feats. Some have been demon possessed; others possessed by an angel. You may not like to look at it this way, but where there is negative there is also always positive. It is easy to see that a person committing evil is demon possessed. We have also seen supernatural signs follow God’s people, but why do we not say they are possessed by an angel? It stands to reason that if Satan is going to work through one of his people, he will appoint a demon or demons to fulfill his evil through that person. Think of it this way. When we operate in the gift of discernment and cast out demons, we are in effect casting out evil spirits. You cannot find one scripture in the Bible where Satan is cast out of anyone, because he is not going to allow himself to be put in that position when he has fallen angels (demons) to do it for him. You will find many accounts in the Bible where demons are cast out of people. The only place Satan has been cast out of is heaven (Luke 10:18). Remember, demons are simply fallen angels. 1/3 of the angels followed after Satan, 2/3 are still on our side. Think about it, we outnumber Satan, 2 to 1.
When we witness the power of miracles, we are seeing the work of God’s ministering spirits orchestrated by the Holy Spirit. There have been many times that the presence of God was so strong I could see His angels ministering in the midst of the congregation. Next time you are in a service where the gifts of the Holy Spirit are in operation, ask the Lord to open your eyes so that you may see His angels at work. Anytime you see a minister moving in the gifts to the Holy Spirit, you are witnessing someone who is being possessed (spurred, moved by a strong feeling, under supernatural power) by an angel of the Lord. But to which of the angels has He ever said: ‘Sit at My right hand, till I make Your enemies Your footstool’? Are they not all ministering spirits sent forth to minister FOR those who will inherit salvation?” (Hebrews 1:13, 14).
Decisions we make in this life can modify our eternal life. Most people have it in their heads that when we go to heaven we will all be equal. I have heard people quote this scripture inferring that we are all equal in the eyes of God and He endows no one more than the other. “Then Peter opened his mouth and said; ‘In truth I perceive that God shows no partiality. But in every nation whoever fears Him and works righteousness is accepted by Him'” (Acts 10:34, 35).The fact is that we will NOT be equal in heaven any more than we are here on earth. You may be more familiar with the King James Verse, “….God is no respecter of persons….” meaning that He shows no favor over one nation, but favors those who do His work of righteousness. Righteousness simply means to be right with God. The only way you can be right with God is to do what God asks of you.
What we do in this life will determine where we sit with the Lord in His kingdom for eternity. I don’t know about you, but I will not be satisfied with simply sweeping heaven’s streets of gold or polishing His pearly gates. The measure you serve God in this life will determine the measure of your reward for eternity.
So Jesus answered and said, “Assuredly, I say to you, there is no one who has left house or brothers or sisters or father or mother or wife or children or lands, for My sake and the gospel’s, who shall not receive a hundredfold now in this time;…and in the age to come, eternal life” (Mark 10:29, 30). “For the Son of Man will come in the glory of His Father with His angels, and then He will reward each according to his works” (Matthew 16:27). There is good reason to serve Christ daily, for in doing so you will receive a greater reward. We obey God because of our love and fear of Him, and for the rewards He gives in this life and the life to come.
Years ago, my wife, who has since passed away, related to me an experience she had as a young adult at her home church in Savannah, Georgia. A visiting minister asked the pastor of the church if he could pray for him. When the minister touched the pastor, the pastor fell out under the power of the minister’s, ministering spirit, his angel.

Comments and Testimonies
I really pray that this message gets to you. Every time when I read your emails (articles) you make me cry. You are the first person that explains to me that what I hear and have heard for more than 50 years (I am 57) Is ok and that what I hear is actually from God. I am sad that you will not be around anymore to talk to but thanks for your life changing words in my life. I don’t have the kind of money that your courses cost – I live in faith on a farm in South Africa. I am a prophetic intercessor and pray with people and businesses. I thank you from the deepest part of my heart.

Dear Pastor Kent
Thank you for your words from God over the years. I have, six years after I received one of your prophetic words, just seen it come to pass in fullness. It was amazingly accurate and God’s hand was ALL over my situation and circumstance! God truly did a miracle for me just as you had heard.
Thank you for your faithfulness.
God bless, Susan
Thank you prophet Kent.
This is one of the highest level of prophetic revelation. Most of the visions along this line young prophets find it difficult to express it. I thank God of you who goes ahead of us, it becomes easier for us to follow after Elders. Thank you for this teaching, it only need prayers.
I asked if the handkerchief had a fragrance because when I was experiencing a lot of pain, I laid it on my pillow after prayer and asked the Lord to have the angel that was appointed to minister for me to minister to me as I lay hands on myself and prayed. The pain started leaving my body and an aroma seemed to fill the room. I could not identify it. I had sent my sister a text message indicating that I was in a lot of pain. Next I text her saying I could smell angelic presence. Text saying the pain was leaving and angels smell really good. I was trying to locate the source and thought it was the handkerchief, yet it was faint compared to what filled the room. The next day as I was praying four hours, I washed my hands at one point and that same scent was on the towel that soap did not remove. It was the same fragrance and it remained on the hand towel on the one side where I dried my hands. It was the identical scent. I took the towel to church and had my asst. pastors smell it….both sides. One side scented, the other not. To this day the scent remains on that towel I am keeping. The towel was left in the church kitchen. During service I could smell the presence if that angel…..same scent, and broke into what was going on to explain this to the congregation. I asked if anyone else smelled it, and it was up front. The man I interrupted walked dawn the aisle toward the front and affirmed smelling the scent. I told them it was angelic presence and that the angel was moving through the congregation. Others smelled the angelic presence that smelled like the towel in the kitchen. In the altar service I ministered in the prophetic to individuals. After service others smelled the scent, and when I got into my car the angel scent went with me. I was transporting my mother home and she smelled the angelic presence in her home when I went in with her. The angel returned to my house and the scent remained all that night. I don’t understand all that, but it all smells the same as the handkerchief. I asked those who smelled the angelic presence to smell the towel in the other room….and asked if it was the same. All but one person said it was identical. Not sure my asst. pastors believed me when I told them it was the angel assigned to minister for me, but they both smelled the essence in the service as the angel was moving around. We have experienced signs, wonders and healings for the past few months since I began fasting and radically praying for revival, destiny, fresh anointing. Six years ago we had the scent of an angel in the church for a while, but this is the first time in many years. Thanks for this timely teaching.
Change You Need to Know About!
As you know for the past two years this ministry has been growing at an alarming rate. The result of this growth has hindered me from being able to spend as much time as I would like writing and spending time with God. This all has changed. It is very difficult for me to minister to more than 8,000 people alone. I need more time for God and my Family and Ministry Partners but having to do prophecies for as many as 700 people in one month is just too much. Therefore, as of December 17, 2014; I will not be making myself available for everyone who wants me to seek God on their behalf for a prophetic word. I will only be ministering to our Family and Ministry Partners; however if you desire a prophecy being one of my partners you may go to any one of the prophecy pages on PropheticMinistries.org and make your request with the required offering.

What is Prophetic Counseling?
There is a difference between receiving Prophetic Counseling vs. Personal Prophecy.
When giving prophetic guidance and counseling it helps to know more about the person. The difference is when you receive a prophetic word from God He is telling you what He wants to say. When I am ministering in prophetic counseling He is giving me answers to what you need to know and what to do in order to receive the results you are looking for. When emailing or visiting over the phone most of the time God gives me the answers within seconds, if they are warranted questions. My understanding of this scripture below is different than what the Word of Faith movement taught me:
“For where two or three are gathered together in My name, I am there in the midst of them.”
Anytime I am with someone or chatting via email or other ways I am listening to what God has to say. The is a totally different understanding of this verse rather than what Word of Faith has been teaching over the years; “Whatever we agree upon it will come to pass” one major flaw is the one person left out of this formula, GOD!
The partnership level between being a Prophecy Partner and that of being a Family Partner are different and one does not automatically cover the requested offering for the other.

I Want to be Your Prophetic Pastor
In the past, I spent much of my time traveling to other countries, but ministering in distant places left me drained. I have decided to hang up my traveling shoes and focus upon those families who regularly support this ministry. It is time for me to develop long term relationships with the people who have a real desire to learn more about what God is doing today.
Since 1989, I have ministered to over 120,000 people via prophecy as of May 1995. I receive hundreds of prophecy requests each year and I will continue to send out personal prophecy via Audio Email and on CD’s to those who are seeking God.
In addition to the prophetic gift God has given me, the Lord has also directed me to become a Prophetic Pastor to those who will receive me. In this new capacity, I can sew prophetic seeds into the lives of those who want to prosper with me. If you will allow me to be your Prophetic Pastor, I will commit to be there for you, and help you prosper in spiritual and financial health and wealth.
In recent years, it has become almost impossible to reach me; my home telephone rings day and night. For this reason, I have started the Family Partners Telephone Access Card. The Access card allows Family Partners to reach me during times of trouble or when having difficulty finding God’s will when making tough decisions. When you use the Access card, I will seek God’s direction for you and help determine how God wants to meet your immediate needs.
3 John 2
In HIS service,
Receiving Your Personal Prophecy
Though a prophet may receive a monetary blessing when giving a person a word from God, he is not to be mistaken for a hireling. A prophet who is a hireling will give a false prophecy at the request of his financial provider for monetary gain.
In contrast to these false prophets, there are men of God who desire to only speak God’s words and to reveal God’s plans for the people. These men receive their spiritual blessing from God and their financial blessing from God’ people.
Old Testament Times
In the Old Testament we find that the Lord commanded Samuel, a prophet of God, to prophesy over a young man who would be coming his way around lunchtime. The Lord indicated that this young man’s name was Saul and he would be looking for his father’s lost donkeys.
I Samuel 9:6
Today’s Spiritual Guidance
As it was in the Old Testament it is today; it is not evil to seek a prophet for spiritual guidance or direction from God.
I Samuel 9:7
Then Saul’s servant said, “Look, I have here at hand one fourth of a shekel of silver. I will give that to the man of God, to tell us our way.”
I Samuel 9:8
In this and other scriptures throughout the Bible, God has shown us that we must support his prophets. These men of old had conviction that they must bless the prophet, Samuel, for his intercession. God wants His people to be cheerful in giving.
II Corinthians 9:6,7
