2022/6/29 Surrounded by the Presence of the Lord and His Angels

Ron Sawka Ministries

June 29, 2022; Sivan 30, 5782

“But you have come to Mount Zion and to the city of the living God, the heavenly Jerusalem, to an innumerable company of angels” (Heb. 12:22).

“But the Spirit of the Lord came upon Gideon; then he blew the trumpet” (Judg. 6:34).

Online Healing Room—Saturday, July 16, 10:00–11:30 a.m.

Recently I felt the Lord strongly push me in the direction of doing more healing. In fact, last week’s main article was titled “Activation for Explosion of Healing and Miracles.” As much as I love teaching and activating healing, I also enjoy doing healing ministry. And now is the time to do more of it.

Thus we are opening a healing room online. This won’t be like a regular meeting—it won’t even be broadcast. But all who wish for healing ministry live can write in and get an “appointment.” Then, my team and I will minister to you. If you desire healing ministry, fill out the registration form using the following link: or let us know by email at

Surrounded by the Presence of the Lord and His Angels

It’s a time of gathering—This morning as the shofar was sounding at the start of MPP, I was reminded of how Gideon blew the trumpet after his consecration to the Lord. The enemy had come in again worse than before. This time Gideon didn’t hide or cower. He boldly blew the shofar and warriors quickly gathered from all over Israel (see Judges 6:34–35). Likewise, in our nations we are in a time of gathering. Every time we pray, or praise or prophesy, the sound of the Lord’s trumpet is being released. There is a gathering of the warriors/harvesters of the Lord, as well as a gathering of the sick and needy and those seeking the Lord and His salvation.

Surrounded by innumerable angels and the presence of the Lord—The start of Gideon’s story was fairly uninspiring. He was covertly threshing wheat so the enemy wouldn’t destroy it. The angel of the Lord was watching him and said, “The Lord is with you, you mighty man of valor!” (6:12). Gideon obviously didn’t know it was an angel, because he essentially replied, “If God is with us, then why are we suffering?” The angel didn’t leave, but graciously repeated, “Go in this might of yours … have I not sent you?” (6:14). Somehow the message began to get through to Gideon. He ran to bring an offering. The angel touched it and “fire rose out of the rock and consumed the meat and the unleavened bread” (6:21). Finally Gideon realized he was speaking directly with the Lord or His angel. I think many of us have come to the point—like Gideon—where we have brought the offering of our lives fully to Him. Just as fire arose on Gideon’s offering, now the fire of the Lord is burning stronger in each heart.

One more thing struck me this morning—how patient the Lord and the angels are. Gideon had no intention of seeking the Lord or being used by Him, but obviously the Lord chose him. The Lord was patient. Even though Gideon tried to ignore or argue, the angel stayed and fulfilled its assigned task—to get Gideon moving in faith.

Here again I see a fulfillment. God has been calling each one of us, just like He called Gideon. We may have ignored or argued or not even realized it, but still He has been patient with us and has helped us shift and has had His angels continue assisting us.

Now we have come to a critical time. But like Gideon, we’re no longer afraid or cowering. There is an intense expectation in the body of Christ in each nation. Harvest time is here. Yes, there will be many battles ahead, but God and His angels are with us. We will continue to advance. Now is the time of harvest.

Thanks for praying,

Ron and Teddy Sawka
