Angels? Have you ever referred to your children as “little angels”? Did you teach them to make “snow angels” or “sand angels”? Have you ever thought of your spouse as “an angel”? Did you hope Cupid would shoot an angelic arrow into your Valentine?
Are these thoughts consistent with God’s Word? In this study, we will see the truth is far better than any of these.
Why study angels? The word appears some 300 times in the Bible. They have been instrumental in God's will for us. Their activities show God's infinite, eternal love for us throughout the history of mankind. They give us a glimpse of our heavenly future. They already know the magnificence of the Godhead three, the marvels of Heaven and the love of God Almighty, so are well qualified to bring us God's messages and facilitate our journey to Him.
We will see that angels played a significant role throughout the Bible. Those key figures in the Old Testament who encountered angels include Abraham, Sarah, Hagar, Lot, Isaac, Jacob, Moses, Balaam, Joshua, Gideon, Samson's parents, David, Elijah, Nebuchadnezzar, Darius, Daniel, and Zechariah. In the New Testament there were Zacharias, Mary, Joseph, the Bethlehem shepherds, Lazarus, Mary Magdalene and the "other Mary", the Apostles as a group and several as individuals (Philip, Peter, and Paul), Cornelius, and, of course, Jesus. What a list!
What is an angel? Do I have a guardian angel? Might I entertain angels unawares? Do angels minister to me? Has the role of angels changed from the Old to the New Testament? These are our questions of interest, and along the way we will consider if the Old Testament's "Angel of the LORD" is the pre-incarnate Jesus Christ.
Many authors write about angels topically. They pose questions about them up front, and then seek Bible verses and personal experiences to back up their views. This study does the reverse. We will first survey every account and reference in the Bible involving angels. Only then will we seek answers to our questions, and only from that context.
To the surprise of some, we will find no female angel in the Bible, nor angels with wings or halos. In fact, the appearance of some angels caused men to pass out in fear. We will address the dark side of angel activities, too; those by the devil's angels. Some of our conclusions about them may also surprise you - and comfort you.
Angels are spirits, but what is a spirit? To better understand that aspect of them, we will offer an explanation of what your spirit is in a way that is understandable and useful beyond this study.
We will highlight how angels have affected your day-to-day life in life-changing ways. No matter what your view is of angel activities when you have finished this study, this book will hopefully cause you to thank God with new enthusiasm and appreciation for using them as Scripture reveals.
