An Angel Named Swift

In the following video, Patricia King discusses Isaiah 40:31.  As she’s explaining what this verse means, she shares a tale about an angel named “Swift” who visited her years ago.  This angel didn’t appear as normal angels would, this angel supposedly presented itself in the form of a brown and gold eagle.  Then, she jumps back to what she was saying, and even takes time to explain what words such as weary and run mean.  I guess she just needed to throw that in there… it wouldn’t be a Patricia King video without the mention of angels.

It’s named Swift because it’s an eagle angel, and an eagle angel can’t be named Harv, Mort, or Bob.  Ya know?

    I couldn’t bring myself to listen to the whole thing-where in the world did she get all of those ideas from that scripture? The Hebrew translation of mount up with wings as eagles has to do with the bird molting its old plummage and growing new-that is the process of waiting. It sounds so good and the sheeple will buy what she says. So sad…..

    I listened to it all 😦

    it appeared to me that the context of the scripture ‘according to King’ is “me” centered.
    I will have this, I will do that. I can do this, I can do the other… nothing was said about our spiritual growth as we wait on Him.

    Thanks Berakah for your insight: “mount up with wings as eagles has to do with the bird molting its old plummage and growing new” ~~ much like being born again. As I have read and studied scripture I find little mention of our physical growth or personal strength – but The Word speaks volumns regarding our spiritual needs.

    So disconcerting for those who listen to her and believe….they can do a word study, but most will just listen and believe…if it good…
    don’t know what she is talking about as matter of fact maybe she doesn’t either………

    This is covert-speak for manifested sons of God (MSoG) teaching. If you soak in ‘god’s’ presence (achieve higher states of consciousness) you shall not grow weary, not get fatigued because this transforms you into MSoG with the ability to astral travel and possess other supernatural powers via this expanding of Christ Consciousness. [See here in “Christ Consciousness” section.]

      Yes Craig, and it’s obvious to me that this is “antichrist” because these people are straining in the flesh to achieve what only God in Christ can bring about.
      Why anyone would want a powerless, plastic, worldly adoption, instead of the incomprehensible life in Jesus Christ just boggles the mind. I would rather suffer terrible atrocities in this life for indescribable riches in Christ in eternity. Given the choice
      I don’t want this to be “my best life now”.

    Who would want to be seen without their personal angel? Todd Bentley’s got “Emma”, and theres only so many angels to around. I think PK has been tokin too much of what John Crowder’s been sprukin.

    I see that the link to the “Christ” in the New Age article did not make it on my last comment. Scroll to “Christ Consciousness” for an explanation.


    Yes, this stuff is antichrist for a number of reasons as the prefix “anti” can mean instead of as in instead of preaching the Gospel other teachings are substituted. And, I agree, I’ll take persecution over a “best life now.”

    Angels are all around us, all the time.

    If you are an obedient disciple of Jesus, then angels go with you and protect you, and arrange meetings with people, and do so much, as the Father sends them (not us).

    So why do those in the “prophetic movement” make A BIG DEAL when they see an angel? it’s as if they don’t believe they are always in the company of angels.

    The same goes when they see a demon. Big deal! Demons are everywhere in the world and you bump into them daily, and they try to harass disciples daily. No big deal.

    So, why the big deal? $$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$

    Seeing angels spells $$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$

    We’ll take up the offering now.

    or, I’ve got a message from God and i’m prostituting it for only $19.99 !

    Good comments everyone.

    Ian, you hit the nail squarely on the head, we are blessed by angels to watch over us. But simple faith in God’s promised provision doesn’t bring in cold, hard cash. All these fantastic experiences told to itching ears generate lots of ‘buzz’. And people with itching ears will pay to hear those experiences.

    Glenn Chatfield – it’s difficult to believe how rational people can listen to the New Age….it has become a delusional world.
    2 Thess. 2:…10 and with all unrighteous deception among those who perish, because they did not receive the love of the truth, that they might be saved. 11 And for this reason God will send them strong delusion, that they should believe the lie,

  10. Carolyn

    Craig – I read the Christ consciousness part in your article…the two words that stick out to me are “fluid” which is an expected quality of the new world of Christianity and “ascendancy” which is recycled hinduism and Satanic pride “I will ascend…”.
    On a personal note, I have been accused of not being “open minded”…being able to consider all things as true…yup that’s me. I’ll gladly take that title. I’m closed minded to swift angels masquerading as demons and I am closed to transcending into the divine. I’m just “humble old, sinner, saved by grace Carolyn…entering through the narrow gate who is Christ” and I’m conscious of Him mostly when I’m praising him and thinking about his amazing grace! Thanks for your comment.

    Umm, Fallen Angels are still technically Angels so being visited by an angel doesn’t necessitate that an act of God is occurring . Satan doesn’t appear as an angel to deceive, he appears “as an angel of light”. Would most Christians know the difference?? It doesn’t really matter what manner of spiritual entity manifests itself – unless God is glorified (not man, not an agenda, not a religious carrot), then the spiritual entity is void of eternal significance to the Christian. I for one have experienced such an entity while in church even! But I knew it wasn’t of God because it puffed ME up and appealed to my soulish and sinful nature that desired to be seen. I have also experienced many instances of God’s protection and mighty moves of Grace in my life and have been aware of Angelic activity, but when Christ alone is the center of your heart, then angels, miracles, signs and wonders – they all pale in comparison and they do not attract the heart or gaze or fascination.
    If you can’t spot them by discernment, you can indeed by their names they declare so boldly (and seemingly so essentially to MSOG representatives Todd Bentley, Bob Jones, Patricia King). When Manoa (Sampson’s father) inquired as to the name of the heavenly messenger, he was unceremoniously told “Why do you ask my name? It is beyond understanding/too wonderful”. These “angels of God” that Patricia King, Bob Jones, Todd Bentley, Joshua Mills etc name, are “knock-off” brands of legitimate acts/deeds of God. Grace is cheapened when it is associated with a spiritual entity.. Healing (by Jesus stripes and not by an angel) is cheapened when it is associated with an angel rather than with the completed works of the Cross, Emma .. umm no comment.. Swift – whatever .. they are all composites of legitimate spiritual things but ALL OF THEM LEAD TO THE APPEARANCE OF GODLINESS but are merely puffed up soulish enticements and a part of of Satan’s vehement anti-Christ-centered gospel.

    Thanks for reading that portion of the article and for your response. Most of the things spoken by leaders in hyper-charismaticism can be understood esoterically when they can’t be understood Biblically and/or logically. The challenge is finding the esoteric/occult doctrinal sources. However, really, all esoteric/occult doctrine has one essence just put forth in different flavors; so, once one has at least some idea of the occult this sort of thing will fall into place. Admittedly, attaining this knowledge is not necessarily easy especially so for true Christians as we tend to filter everything through an orthodox Christian lens.

    Yes, fluidity is part and parcel of our postmodern culture – subjectivity rather than objective truth. To push postmodernistic ideals into the school systems has been one of the goals of our antichristian leaders.

    The New Age has borrowed quite a bit from Hinduism.

    You wrote, I’m just “humble old, sinner, saved by grace Carolyn…entering through the narrow gate who is Christ”. Just don’t tell that to Bill Johnson as he believes “sin and its nature have been yanked out by its root” as a result of the Cross.

    Long story, too long to explain here, but I am very familiar with these people: King, Mills, Bentley, Johnson, Joyner, Baker, etc. etc. Many years ago I was somewhat within that camp, and I was open to some of their teachings…because it appeared that there was real fruit resulting from some of these ministries. But now, years later, I am convinced that these angel appearances they describe are either a) fallen angels appearing as angels of light, or b) lies made up by delusional minds, or both. Of course this does not preclude the real thing, but as others stated above, when a real angel appears, it is for a specific purpose and brings no glory to man, and although can be quite amazing, it is not “weird.” God is amazing, but never weird, and I always have a weird, sick feeling in my stomach after watching people like Patricia King, John Crowder, etc. As a side note, I totally believe in miracles, and totally believe in angels appearing and have actually seen one – but he appeared as a normal man – and it wasn’t until hours later that I realized I had seen an angel. I really appreciate Colossians 2:18 – “Do not let anyone who delights in false humility and the worship of angels disqualify you for the prize. Such a person goes into great detail about what he has seen, and his unspiritual mind puffs him up with idle notions.” The key here for me is, “the worship of angels…and such a person goes into great detail;” so true…since most of these people seem to live for angel experiences…to me this is clearly worshiping angels. But one thing I have to remember is that there is a big difference between those who are deliberately lying, and those who are simply deluded…there is hope for the deluded and so I pray they will wake up, as I did. I still believe in miracles and still believe in the work of angels, but I run from these people like the plague!

    Pastor Mike Hoggard has done some insightful broadcasts in regards to the NAR, Joel’s Army and the “prophetic” movement. I have checked them out and found them to be very insightful. He compares Scripture with todays events, both in the world and in the church.
    Check him out on you tube.

    You said that you “…totally believe in miracles, and totally believe in angels appearing and have actually seen one – but he appeared as a normal man – and it wasn’t until hours later that I realized I had seen an angel.”

    I am curious as to how you knew the man that appeared to you was an angel.

    ian vincent:

    Scripture teaches that heavenly angels are a blessing to the believer, or a curse to the unsaved (Psalm 34:7; Acts 27:23-24; Hebrews 1:14; Genesis 19:13; Judges 5:23; Psalm 35:5-6).

    Hebrews 13:1-2 admonishes Christians to demonstrate brotherly love to strangers, and that “some have entertained angels” without knowing it.

    In Jeremiah chapter 23, God reveals His anger towards false prophets, and warns that He is “against” them (verses 30-32). As I have said before, God does not fellowship with false prophets, or heretics and blasphemers (2 Peter 2:1). In fact, Christians are commanded not to fellowship with the falsies (Ephesians 5:11).

    Furthermore, Galatians 1:8-9 warns that anyone who preaches a false gospel is under a divine curse from God. Again, no fellowship between God and falsies.

    The Prophetic movement is a dark and evil wasteland that is overrun with false prophets, hyper-heretics, and blasphemers. Since God’s heavenly angels are a blessing and comfort to believers, and a curse and destruction to the unbeliever, why should we believe that the “angels” that supposedly appear to people in the Prophetic movement are heavenly angels?

    With all of the above in mind, IF anyone within the corrupt hyper-Charismatic movement is seeing “angels,” they are not heavenly angels, but demonic angels with smiles on their faces.
