Kent Simpson started talking about angels when angels weren’t popular. For some of us, it’s hard to imagine a time when supernatural things were too “out there” to preach on. The last twenty years have seen an explosion of super hero movies, vampire romances, and sorcery schools, all while having a mindset that this is acceptable to push toward our children.
God knew this season was coming, which is why many years ago He started introducing the subject of angels to the church. We need the experiences Kent shares in this book to equip us for the angelic and demonic encounters we should expect in the next era. I know that for me, the encounters I’ve had during my lifetime have sometimes confused me. What did I see, exactly? What did it mean? When I hear stories from the “Professionals of the Faith” that have been around longer than I have, it helps me understand my Father even more, especially when the experiences are told in story form, as Kent loves to do. When he shares them, the movie of his life plays in my head and it becomes an example I can follow.
Kent has been a pioneer in the prophetic movement of the last several decades. I believe God has used him to ruffle a few feathers and to tip people out of the prophetic boxes they’ve put themselves into. Part of a prophet’s job description is to broach subjects that stretch the Body of Christ for the purpose of advancing God’s Kingdom. After all, if we call ourselves sons of God, being corrected and disciplined by Him (a lot of times through His vessels) is part of the package.
“We have had human fathers who corrected us, and we paid them respect. Shall we not much more readily be in subjection to the Father of spirits and live?” (Heb. 12:9).
God is our God. He is also the God of the spirits. In His eyes, there is no segregation; we are all one big team, even when we don’t see it, and even if we refuse to believe it’s true. For the supernatural showdown that’s coming, it would be extremely beneficial to us to learn what God is trying to teach us in this season regarding angels.
