The King of Syria decided to wage war against the people of God in Israel. Every time the Syrian King would make a plan to set an ambush against Israel, Elisha the Prophet would warn Israel so that they evaded the ambush. The Syrian King was frustrated because he thought, that certainly someone in his camp was a spy and passing on information to Israel. How else would they know about the plans that he made against him and manage to avoid his attacks?
There are angels that surround us and the Holy Spirit that lives in us, translates heavenly intelligence concerning the activities of the kingdom of darkness. Every time the enemy tries to launch an attack against us, God will send us a warning to avoid being caught in Satan’s snare.
We see similar occurrences around the time of Jesus’s birth when Herod had plans to assassinate him. An angel appeared to Joseph in a dream and warned him to take Jesus and his mother and escape to Egypt because Herod was coming in search of him. (Matthew 2:13) It was also an angel who told Joseph that it was ok to marry Mary when he had to plans to put her away privately because she became pregnant before they were married. (Matthew 1.20-23)
What is important is for us to live at a place where we can hear from God through the Holy Spirit and ministering spirits (angels) who will transit messages to us for our protection and direction.
We have access to supernatural insight, wisdom and divine revelation concerning happenings on earth. It is in remaining in close relationship with God that we will have access to such intelligence. “having the eyes of your understanding enlightened,” (Ephesians 1:18)
