Seeing Angels by Joshua Mills

About the Book

Book: Seeing Angels
Author: Joshua Mills
Genre: Religion / Christian Theology/Angelology & Demonology
Release Date: September 3, 2019

A recent study found that 57 percent of Catholics, 66 percent of Evangelical Protestants, and 10 percent of Jews have reported having a personal experience with a guardian angel. And 20 percent of those who identified themselves as having no religion also claimed having encountered an angel.

Seeing Angels is one of the most in depth examinations of angelic ministry by one of the cutting-edge charismatic leaders in the church today. Joshua Mills goes beyond the usual takes on angels regarding spiritual warfare and explores who they are, how to recognize them, and what they do.
  • Part I, Understanding Your Angels, is all about understanding who angels are, exploring why they are necessary and how different angels minister comfort, healing, love, prosperity. It reveals who they carry out specific geographic assignments for cities and nations, as well as the more unique and extraordinary assignments they receive.
  • Part II, Discerning Your Angels, explains how to become more aware of the unseen heavenly realm, as well as how to recognize divine intervention when it does reveal itself to human sight. Such manifestations include random strangers, visions, or signs and messengers that believers receive. Joshua also explains the way he has interacted with visions of radiant light, swirling colors, and what he describes as atmospheric shifts. All of this is intended to make believers become more aware of both invisible and revealed spiritual realities.
  • Part III, Working with Your Angels, deals specifically with how to minister alongside these heavenly messengers as they stand watch, provide protection, and administer strength and comfort. This includes recognizing their movements and how to effectively pray for angelic encounters to take place.
With a foreword by Patricia King, Seeing Angels is among the most comprehensive teachings on recognizing angelic beings and understanding how to partner with them in ministry.

My Review

So, here's what I liked, and what I didn't. What I liked is that the author made it clear that we don't worship angels, only God, and that angels simply carry out God's bidding. I liked how the book reminded us of all the Lord has used angels for in the Bible, and reminds us of the spiritual realm, and the realm of possibilities of how angels minister to us through the Lord's power including comfort, protection, and even meeting one that seems like a normal person, because that is Biblical. I felt that the author used a lot of Scripture to back up his research on angels for the facts. So here's why I can't recommend this book. First, the author made it seem we have to see angels in visions or dreams to know our angels and work with them. I see no reason why we need to see them in that way since we are supposed to be focused on Christ, and the focus shouldn't be on the angel. While the author said we don't worship angels, I certainly feel he elevated them to an unnecessary pedestal since their true and only purpose is to communicate, comfort, etc. as the Lord wills and praise the Lord. How do we know it's always the same angel that are ours? I'm not saying it's impossible, but saying that this is essential to know is a leap too far for me. Angels only do what the Lord asks them to do, so when I pray to God, does He use angels to accomplish that? Possibly. However, I feel uncomfortable saying that they are almost the be all end all to helping especially in crisis situations. Also, discerning spirits is a true spiritual gift, and one that I have. The author suggests that if we ask for a spiritual gift, we are automatically given it. While I believe that you can ask for a gift and that is Biblical, it is up to the Lord whether He gives us that gift or not. What bothers me most is that people may find themselves finding comfort in angels rather than Jesus Christ, and that is ultimately why I can not recommend this book to any reader. 

I received a complimentary copy of this book, and all opinions given are entirely my own.
