Yes, there is an angel who assists us to lead successful and fulfilling lives. Apostle John told the believers that he wished above all things that they would “prosper and be in health, even as thy soul prospereth” (1 John 3: 2).
The Greek word for prosper means:
a. to grant a prosperous and expeditious journey, to lead by a direct and easy way
b. to grant a successful issue, to cause to prosper
c. be successful
God assigns angels to ensure that our journeys or endeavors are successful, expeditious, direct (no wandering) and easy. He has angels assigned to assist us to prosper. We can enlist these angels’ help by asking for assistance in the particular area. This is not praying, but just making a request as if asking a friend for help or a favor.
We see Angels of Prosperityat work in the bible, although they are not labelled with this title. For example, Abraham was apparently accustomed to having angels guide him as he journeyed in the land of Caanan. He revealed this when he sent his steward to look for a wife for his son, telling him that the angel of the Lord would go before him (Gen 24: 7, 40).
The steward prayed to God asking for specific signs to be revealed in the woman who would be Isaac’s wife. His request was fulfilled exactly as he asked, confirming that the Lord had indeed sent angels before him to make his quest successful. He recounted his experience to Laban, uncle of the bride, telling him that Abraham had prophesied that “The LORD… will send his angel with thee, and prosper thy way; and thou shalt take a wife for my son of my kindred, and of my father’s house” (Gen 24: 40). Even the successful choice of a mate is considered to be a sign of prosperity.
This shows me that we too can use this strategy to enlist the help of the Angel of Prosperity. Years ago, I was a member of a prayer group that would pray for people in their homes etc. We learnt to pray and ask the Lord to send angels ahead of us into the homes and places where we would pray for people. Our missions were always easier when we did so. However, I need to use this strategy more often in my every day life.
Here’s another example. Jacob saw angels ascending and descending upon a ladder between heaven and earth as he escaped Esau’s death threat. The angels were demonstrating their closeness to him and drawing his attention to the Lord who stood above the ladder, giving a promise to bless him in the land that he would live (Gen 28). This was a reassuring and wonderful event, giving him consolation that the Lord was with him. His response was to make a vow to serve the Lord if His promise was fulfilled. Angels are closer to us than we realize
The angel of the Lord spoke to Jacob in a dream, telling him how to mate the animals that would be strong and reproduce (an early example of genetics). Jacob followed the Lord’s instructions and his animals multiplied exceeding and were stronger than his uncle’s (Gen 31: 1- 13).
When he returned home many years later after working for his Uncle Laban, the angels of the Lord met him to reassure him of their protection. He had tricked and robbed his brother many years earlier and was afraid that Esau was still angry. The angels of the Lord had dealt already with that situation (Gen 32).
The bible proliferates with many more examples. God demonstrated Abraham’s revelation that angels go before His people when His angel led Israel through the wilderness. Isa 63: 9 says that the angel of His presence saved them in their affliction.
We can see from the Greek that prosperity encompasses more than wealth acquisition and is very broad in nature. In fact, God created man with the intent that he should propser. This was established when he told Adam and Eve to be fruitful, multiply etc and gave them access to earth’s resources. He uses angels to help us to become successful.
Prince Igoni told me in June 2007 that he was the Angel of Prosperity. He has been teaching me how to prosper in my spirit and to trust God even when I do not have access to resources. I have experienced uncommon favor and angelic help from the “terror by night”, among other things. I have received instructions on how I can prosper materially but have to wait for the appointed time.
The angels of the Lord are closer than you know. They are sent to help us to prosper. The examples of those who have gone on before provide a guide as to how these angels function in our lives. I hope that you have been blessed!
