I wanted to share with you one of the most impacting stories that I’ve read this year. ANGELS OF HUMILITY by JACKIE MACGIRVEN is a moving story of faith and redemption that will grip your attention and causes you to consider the deeper issues of life in Jesus Christ. I’m currently reading it and being affected by its message as I was the first time I read it.
Jackie introduces us to Sarah, a seventy plus widow who watched her husband George die. Overcome by her loss and loneliness Sarah is unaware of the demonic spirits that has invaded her home and are speaking words of discouragement, fear and suicide in her mind. Sarah has no children and no community to help her deal with her grief and she is succumbing to the voices of the demons who wants to take her soul to hell.
At the point of great darkness descending on Sarah, choking the little hope that is left in her mind she is visited by Pastor Hall. Pastor Hall discerns in the Spirit the demons in Sarah’s house. With authority Pastor Hall cast the demons out in the name of Jesus and then leads Sarah to salvation in Jesus Christ.
Sarah is discipled by Pastor Hall and immediately starts to grow as she learns the essentials of victorious living through prayer and daily reading of the Scriptures. As Sarah grows quickly in the Spirit she becomes a great adversary of the kingdom of darkness and a mighty vessel of God. Unknown to Sarah is the presence of two ministering angels, Joel and Malta. They are also warrior angels who stand guard over Sarah protecting her from the demons that still desire to torment her.
Jackie also introduces Pastor Paul in her story. After Pastor Hall retires and relocates the church hires Paul to be the interim pastor. Fresh out of seminary Paul is very ambitious, insecure and self centered, a recipe for disaster. With his wife Kathy and son Jordan they move to Bradbury and Paul starts succumbing to the demonic spirits that feeds his insecurities and ambition. He has ministering angels, Valdoe and Saldu who speaks to him, guiding him to the right path of God’s will, but his pride causes him to reject them.
ANGELS OF HUMILITY is a tale of conflict between the realms of heaven, hell and earth. It is a story that issues a call to intercession, the highest ministry of the church. This book changed me, it gave me a new vision for intercession. I believe it’s going to change you too.
