Angels Amongst Us

Our world is experiencing “angel mania”. Books, movies, television has angels. But what are the scripture angels.

Psalms 91:11-12
11 For he shall give his angels charge over thee, to keep thee in all thy ways. 12 They shall bear thee up in their hands, lest thou dash thy foot against a stone.

Because God put his angels upon you, you can be in the most dangerous of situations and still be protected in the hand of God. Angels are not to be prayed to or worshipped. All praise is to God. People believe angels are UFOs and will come to snatch people up to explain the rapture. David said God's angels are looking over you. An angel is a created being.

Psalms 148:2-5
2 Praise ye him, all his angels: praise ye him, all his hosts. 3 Praise ye him, sun and moon: praise him, all ye stars of light. 4 Praise him, ye heavens of heavens, and ye waters that be above the heavens. 5 Let them praise the name of the LORD: for he commanded, and they were created.

Colossians 1:16
16 For by him were all things created, that are in heaven, and that are in earth, visible and invisible, whether they be thrones, or dominions, or principalities, or powers: all things were created by him, and for him:

The invisible things are greater than visible. Angels have superior knowledge.

II Samuel 14:20
20 To fetch about this form of speech hath thy servant Joab done this thing: and my lord is wise, according to the wisdom of an angel of God, to know all things that are in the earth.

Angels do not know the day of the second coming of Christ

Mark 13:32
32 But of that day and that hour knoweth no man, no, not the angels which are in heaven, neither the Son, but the Father.

Hebrews 12:22
22 But ye are come unto mount Sion, and unto the city of the living God, the heavenly Jerusalem, and to an innumerable company of angels, Angels are without numbers.

Revelation 18:21
21 And a mighty angel took up a stone like a great millstone, and cast it into the sea, saying, Thus with violence shall that great city Babylon be thrown down, and shall be found no more at all.

All the people are killed. The city will never be heard of again. God gave you an angel. You have an angel to do many things, protect, serve, help. Often angels of light are evil. Satan's angels.

Romans 8:38-39
38 For I am persuaded, that neither death, nor life, nor angels, nor principalities, nor powers, nor things present, nor things to come, 39 Nor height, nor depth, nor any other creature, shall be able to separate us from the love of God, which is in Christ Jesus our Lord.

Galatians 1:8
8 But though we, or an angel from heaven, preach any other gospel unto you than that which we have preached unto you, let him be accursed.

Some may come forth to you with another gospel. Another gospel is when someone says they have access to God without the Word of God or Jesus Christ. New Age is another gospel. With New Age, you can preach any God but once you say Jesus' name, you're out. Scientology is another gospel, the gospel of Hollywood. Satanism is another God, do what you will. Humanism says man is the master of himself (nothing). You are not anything without God. When you are stuck in a denomination, you have gone into a religious idolatry. Christianity without the cross is the counterfeit Christianity. If you do not confront your sin, you cannot be diverted from your sin. You cannot confront your sin without the cross.

What are the purpose of angels? Primary purpose is to worship God. Angels are messengers of God. God has assigned an angel to protect, guide, and help you. God will never forsake you. You will be tested, struggled, but it's all in order to be formed and strengthened. God is willing to give you the best that heaven has to offer if you are willing to stick through it and seek his guidance. God wants you to confront your failure, accept it, and get over it. God wants you to look at the beauty of this day and forward. Angels can take form of men.

Genesis 18:2
2 And he lift up his eyes and looked, and, lo, three men stood by him: and when he saw them, he ran to meet them from the tent door, and bowed himself toward the ground,

2 Be not forgetful to entertain strangers: for thereby some have entertained angels unawares.

Colossians 2:18
18 Let no man beguile you of your reward in a voluntary humility and worshipping of angels, intruding into those things which he hath not seen, vainly puffed up by his fleshly mind,

New Age wants you to worship angels. Angels are not for worship, only God is to be worshipped.

I Corinthians 4:9
9 For I think that God hath set forth us the apostles last, as it were appointed to death: for we are made a spectacle unto the world, and to angels, and to men.

Day and night we are watched by angels. Spectacles is an intense visual observation.
