The Family Altar
If you want Angels to appear to you, keep your mind on God and off the things of the world. Go about your business; go to your church; go to your washing of dishes; wherever you are, keep your mind on Him all day and all night long. Then God will do something. You’re drawing close to Him; you’ve got the world shut out; just you and He are together.
25 This appearing of the Angel frightened the little virgin. She had been taught that the days of miracles was past. But she had seen something happen. The Angel told her, said, “Hail, Mary.” “Hail” means “to stop.” And He had a message for her. When an Angel comes, He’s got a message for you. And the Holy Spirit, God’s Angel is here tonight with a message for every believer. Just keep Him on your mind. Keep thinking about Him, how lovely He is, how sweet He is, of His promises. If you’re sick, get this on your mind, “He was wounded for my transgressions; He was bruised for my iniquity: the chastisement of my peace was upon Him; and with His stripes I was healed.” Keep your mind centered like that; something will happen to you. All of a sudden there’ll be a—something draw nigh to you, an anointing will come on you and out of that chair you’ll go. “Draw nigh unto the Lord, and He will draw nigh unto you.”
26 And she looked at this great Angel, and His Name is Gabriel. Now, there is Angels of the Lord, many of them, and they come to the earth and bring messages. But Gabriel, when He comes, there’s something major going to happen. He was the One Who announced the first coming of Christ; He will be the One that’ll announce the second coming of Christ.
And He told Mary, “Thou has found favor with God.” What a message to bring to her. “Thou has found favor with God.” And while she was thinking on that Scripture, then that was the Scripture that was confirmed to her.
Now, if you’re sick, think on that Scripture. If you’re lost, think on that Scripture. If you want the Holy Spirit, think on that Scripture, and the Holy Spirit will confirm it to you.
