Angels

Introduction

The existence of angels and their function has always been a widely disputed subject within the religious and non-religious world. Can it be that because in a world as sophisticated as ours, angels just don’t fit in! It is as if those country-cousins have come in from the woods to visit their rich city-relations and they are an embarrassment! And we wish they would go away, back to where they came from!


Don’t you find it a little bit strange that people today will accept the possibility of ‘alien visitors from outer-space’ and U.F.O.’s! They will believe in the occult and in superstitious astrological forecasts. They will talk in a way that shows they believe, that it matters and really makes a difference under which so-called ‘star-sign’ they were born. Do Angels Exist?

How do you explain or even try to describe to someone whose been blind since birth, what the colour blue is! It’s impossible because a blind man has never seen anything, never mind colours.

It’s the same with this question, trying to answer why God has so many angels is like trying to describe to anyone, something they none of us have never seen. If God Is All-Powerful, Why Does He Need So Many Angels?

What do you think of at Christmas time when you get cards and wrapping paper, signs and symbols and ornaments of these cute little things with halos, wings and nice little faces that are as sweet as they could possibly be?

Many people believe in angels and many many don’t, but I don’t think we should be thinking that in our minds when we read the word ‘angel’ in the Bible. Guardian Angels

There’s no doubt that seraphim, cherubim and the four living creatures bring all kinds of imagery into our minds, in today’s society we find people’s attempts to draw what they think they look like on cards, works of art, buildings etc. What exactly do they look like? What purpose do they serve? We may not know exactly what they look like, although the Bible describes them in a way which is difficult to picture, but one thing we know for certain, is that they are serving the Lord God Almighty. Seraphim, Cherubim And The Four Living Creatures

If the church is to be employed by God in ‘judging’ on such a grand scale, surely wise Christian people ought to be able to judge between brethren who are in conflict, rather than permitting such dissensions to proceed to lawsuits, and thus damaging the church’s influence in society. In What Way Will Christians Judge Angels?

It never ceases to amaze me how people repeat ‘phrases’ they’ve heard and then they go on to teach others the same ‘phrases’. The problem with most of these phrases is that they completely mislead people and they lead to an erroneous understanding of God and His Word. The Angel Of Death!

The Bible certainly makes no provision for humans to communicate with angels in such a language, nor would there be any need for an angel to communicate to a human in a non-earthly language.

The whole point of 1 Corinthians 12-13 was to stress the need to function in the church in ways that were meaningful and understandable. Tongue Speaking Angels!

It’s often overlooked, ignored or even completely denied that the Scriptures tell us that there are what we call ‘fallen angels’, that’s angels who rebelled against God, and now continue to work against God and His creation, although at one time they were faithful to God. Satan And The Fallen Angels

When we read through the Scriptures we very quickly learn that there are only three angels mentioned by name, they are the archangel Michael, Gabriel, who was God’s special messenger and Lucifer who was a fallen angel. The fact that they are named tells us they must be important. The Archangel Michael And Gabriel

It never ceases to amaze me what people actually believe and come to make a doctrine out of something which has no Biblical reference and no Biblical authority to believe or teach. The identity of Jesus will ultimately make or break any religious belief system because Jesus and His identity is the core teaching the whole Gospel message. Was Jesus The Archangel Michael?

DAILY BIBLE VERSE

"For I know the plans I have for you,” declares the LORD, “plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future."

Jeremiah 29:11
