Understanding the Notions of Spiritual Winds and Angels
The concept of the four winds and four angels comes from our God, Adonai, the Creator Father! Concerning the winds and angels that stand at each corner of the earth or the four cardinal points, you will find in the Bible passages that teach this mystery, but it is often hidden from the eyes of God’s children.
Do you know why the twelve tribes of Israel were divided into four groups, and each of these four tribes was at the head of three other tribes? (Numbers 2:3, 10, 18, 25). Do you know why the new Jerusalem had twelve gates, subdivided into four great gates (Revelation 21:12-13)? This is what the Bible says:
“To the east, the camp of Judah, with its standard and its corps of soldiers… by his side shall camp the tribe of Issachar… and then the tribe of Zebulun… To the south, the camp of Reuben… by his side shall camp the tribe of Simeon… and then the tribe of Gad… To the west, the camp of Ephraim… by his side shall camp the tribe of Manasseh… and then the tribe of Benjamin… To the north, the camp of Dan… by his side shall camp the tribe of Asher… and then the tribe of Naphtali...” (Numbers 2:1-34).
“It had a great and high wall. It had twelve gates, and on the gates twelve angels, and names written on them, which are the names of the twelve tribes of the children of Israel: on the east three gates, on the north three gates, on the south three gates, and on the west three gates.” (Revelation 21:12-13).
“After this, I saw four angels standing at the four corners of the earth, holding the four winds of the earth, so that no wind would blow on the earth, or on the sea, or on any tree.” (Revelation 7:1; Daniel 7:3).
Behind each wind, there is an angel or a spirit. When there is a favorable wind blowing for your benefit, it is for your well-being, and it is an angel of God who comes into play and releases this wind of blessings and protection to guide you to victory. The same goes for other winds that blow against you, known as “contrary winds.”
The term “angel” indicates their ministry. The later books of the Bible suggest that angels differ in rank and dignity, as there are archangels (chief angels) and lesser angels (1 Thessalonians 4:16; Jude 9; Revelation 12:7).
Moreover, Paul mentions among angels, fallen or not, thrones, dominions, principalities, and powers (Romans 8:38; Ephesians 1:21; Ephesians 3:10; Colossians 1:16; Colossians 2:15). Cherubim and seraphim also appear to belong to the angelic order. Psalms 104:4 refers to the inanimate forces of nature as messengers and servants of God, but plagues and mortality, as divine judgments, are inflicted upon men by angels (2 Samuel 24:16; 2 Kings 19:35; Zechariah 1:7-17).
These angels camp invisibly around those who fear God (Psalms 34:8; Genesis 28:12; Genesis 48:16; 2 Kings 6:17; Isaiah 63:9).
2.2. Knowing the One Who Holds and Releases the Wind for or Against You.
First, it is essential to understand:
- God is the creator of all the winds (Zechariah 6:5-8).
- The angels of the Lord minister on our behalf to help and serve us regarding the wind (Revelation 7:1-3; Hebrews 1:7).
- Satan and his fallen angels unlawfully hold and restrain the winds against us. There is a fallen angel of the devil who holds sway over each of the four corners of the earth, to bring forth unfavorable or contrary winds against us (Revelation 7:1-3; Ezekiel 21:24-28).
We have the power to subject, dominate, and subdue all of creation or nature at our disposal, to free it from servitude so that it may partake in the liberty and glory of the children of God (Romans 8:19-23). Thus, we can release and use the winds for our well-being and against the devil, our enemies, and adversaries. See the prayer associated with each of these winds!
There have been individuals in the Bible who left their mark by subjecting, dominating, and subduing creation and nature entirely, placing them under their control and possession:
- Moses (Exodus 7 to 11; the ten plagues, the parting of the Red Sea, and the wilderness).
- Joshua (Joshua 10:12-15; the stopping of the sun).
- Elijah (1 Kings 17:1-7; 1 Kings 18:30-40; 2 Kings 1:10-12; 2 Kings 2:7-9; calling down fire from heaven, parting the Jordan River with his mantle).
- Elisha (1 Kings 2:12-12; 1 Kings 2:19-22; 1 Kings 2:23-25; 1 Kings 3:4:1-7, 38-41, 42-44; 1 Kings 6:1-7).
- Paul (Acts 28:3-6).
- The Apostles (Acts 3:6-11).
- Jesus Christ (John 9:6-7).
And you and I? Yes, they are present, exercising their ministries in one way or another on our behalf!
