He Sent Men to Help Them

How do we possess the numerous blessings (the new territory, promotion, abundance, etc.) God has promised us?

We first receive by faith. For us to see the manifestation of His promises, we must have the audacity to take God at His word, believing that He will do exactly what He has said He will do (Isaiah 55:11 & Numbers 23:19)

God moves supernaturally and on the hearts of men.

“God sends His blessings through men to men”- Apostle Joshua Selman.

This is where strategic and prophetic relationships come to play #SENT MEN.

Sent men are conduits or points of access. A conduit is described as someone or something that provides a way of passing something from one person to another.

Let’s look at the analogy of a door and a sent man.

A door is an access point.

If I want access to your apartment, I have options. I can open the door with the correct key or passcode and let myself in. Without a key or passcode, I can knock on your door, and you’ll open (or send someone to) and let me in.

“Ask, and it shall be given you; seek and ye shall find; knock and it shall be opened unto you .” Matthew 7:7

This verse implies that to access certain levels of blessings, you have to knock on a door. It’ll take someone on the other side of the entrance to grant access to the one who knocks. Ordinarily, on their own, it would have been impossible for them to have access.

Here are some of the ways sent men provide access to the blessings God has for each of us:

1. Sent men are door openers and destiny helpers

The Lord will talk to men about you and send them to help you.

The Lord spoke to Ananias in a vision concerning blind Saul’s kingdom assignment and sent him to lay hands on him. When Ananias arrived on the scene, Saul’s destiny changed. He received an impartation of the Holy Spirit, and the scales that made him blind fell off his eyes (Acts 9:1-19).

Ananias was the door opener for Saul- giving him access to a level of anointing, acceleration, wisdom, and knowledge necessary to fulfill his kingdom assignment.

2. Sent men show mercy and favor.

Since God sends His blessings through men, it’s critical for a man to have favor in the sight of God and man (Proverbs 3:4).

Favor means “grace, goodwill, to be acceptable to someone.”

Favor is a consequence of the Lord’s Hand over your life. God deals differently with those He has stored favor for, resulting in acceleration, ease, promotion, influence, provision, and divine protection.

Interrogating the example of Queen Esther, while at King Xerxes’s harem at the fortress in Susa, the Lord caused Hegai, the King’s eunuch, to be impressed by her. Hegai favored Esther by providing everything she needed to stand out from all the women competing to capture the King’s heart (Esther 2:8-9 & 15). Esther quickly went from a nobody to a queen and used her influence to fulfill her kingdom assignment to preserve the Jews’ lives (Esther 7).

In Nehemiah’s case, he wanted to take a trip to Jerusalem after hearing of the city’s destruction. He prayed and asked God to put it into the King’s heart to be kind to him before he went to ask him for permission to go (Nehemiah 1:10; 2:4-5). God heard him and caused the King to not only agree to his request but also grant him his requests for letters of access across territories, material supplies to rebuild the wall, and protection. (Nehemiah 2:7-9)

3. Sent men are benefactors

A benefactor is someone who provides help or advantage.

Boaz was Ruth’s benefactor when she and Naomi, her mother-in-law, returned from Moab with nothing to their names. He ensured she was provided for, protected, and eventually married her (Ruth 2-4).

Joseph was the Israelites’ benefactor when severe famine struck the nations. He ensured they were well provided for in Goshen (Genesis 46: 28-33 &47).

God caused Elijah to be the widow of Zarephath’s benefactor. God provided for and prospered her through Elijah amid a famine by multiplying her resources. (1Kings 17)

Pray for increased discernment which will help you correctly identify your destiny helpers. The Bible says that as blind Saul was praying, the Lord showed him that help was coming his way. Saul had the discernment that Ananias was a sent man. Saul would have mismanaged the relationship with Ananias if he had yet to discern.

Sent men are a key that unlocks the door for you to access new territories, blessings of expansion, provision, abundance, and elevation that God has promised you. Therefore, master the art of knocking so the sent man waiting on the other side will answer when you knock.
