Wings of War
When Angel's Take Flight - Continued
The Response to Tom's Call
Michael, The Arch Angel listened...His listening was not the same as human listening. He could hear and see the range of interactions on a scale not conceivable in human experience. His hair blowing in the celestial wind. He peered over the lands observing the battles fought on many fronts by prayer warriors such as Tom. But this request, Tom's request, when beckoned to the God of his deliverance, he was inclined to respond too. For it appeared God Himself would have Michael dispatched to handle this request. On the speed of spirit wind, Spiritual Sword in hand, unsheathing from its mighty holster, Michael's wings flared..expanding ominously, he rose from the peak of his observation point and hurled himself towards the scene of this impending battle. Carried by the spirit wind in what could only be described as an instant, spiritual warfare had commenced...
In the instant he arrived, engaging the demon's in response to the Highest command, With one blow Michael's sword struck deception, and hindrance...both fell to the ground crippled by the impact of his blow. Looking up witchcraft quickly tried to recover the position left open by it's fallen brethren, but it was too late for the blow of Michael's mighty sword once lifted swung back around to dispatch him in his next swift blow. Slicing through vexes, hexes, and incantations, the demons of un forgiveness, bitterness , anger, and resentment flailed to the ground. Many were the demons present at the scene but it did not phase Michael, for he had seen many battles and foes dispatched by the Lord's hand. Truly there is no counsel, no wisdom against the Lord. The mighty sword carried by the angel was glorious to behold. I peered in to see it's craftsmanship...On it's blade it said, The Spirit of Truth has made His Judgment. The battle was quick and decisive. Wisdom, truth, provision, and mercy flooded the scene of the prayer arena.. Release....the atmosphere transformed and electric with the new spiritual energy of creation. Revelation flowed, Tom's insight was enlightened..He knew what to do next. How fearful and wonderful is the God of our salvation.
