Angels ministered to Christ. Matt.4:11; Luke 22:43; John 1:51. Luke 22:43And there appeared an angel unto him from heaven, strengthening him. Matt.4:11Then the devil leaveth him, and, behold, angels came and ministered unto him.
Angels are subject to Christ. Eph.1:21; Col. 1:16; Col.2:10; 1 Peter 3:22.
Col.1:16For 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: Col.2:10And ye are complete in him, which is the head of all principality and power: 1 Peter 3:22Who is gone into heaven, and is on the right hand of God; angels and authorities and powers being made subject unto him.
Angels shall execute the purposes of Christ. Matt.13:41The Son of man shall send forth his angels, and they shall gather out of his kingdom all things that offend, and them which do iniquity; Matt.24:31And he shall send his angels with a great sound of a trumpet, and they shall gather together his elect from the four winds, from one end of heaven to the other.
Angels shall attend Christ when He returns. Matt.16:27For the Son of man shall come in the glory of his Father with his angels; and then he shall reward every man according to his works. Matt.25:31When the Son of man shall come in his glory, and all the holy angels with him, then shall he sit upon the throne of his glory: Mark.8:38Whosoever therefore shall be ashamed of me and of my words in this adulterous and sinful generation; of him also shall the Son of man be ashamed, when he cometh in the glory of his Father with the holy angels. 2 Thess. 1:7And to you who are troubled rest with us, when the Lord Jesus shall be revealed from heaven with his mighty angels, [ to be continued ]
Angels announced:The resurrection of Christ! Matt.28:5-7; Luke 24:23. Matt.28:5And the angel answered and said unto the women, Fear not ye: for I know that ye seek Jesus, which was crucified. 6He is not here: for he is risen, as he said. Come, see the place where the Lord lay. 7And go quickly, and tell his disciples that he is risen from the dead; and, behold, he goeth before you into Galilee; there shall ye see him: lo, I have told you.
The ascension and second coming of Christ! Acts 1:10And while they looked stedfastly toward heaven as he went up, behold, two men stood by them in white apparel; 11Which also said, Ye men of Galilee, why stand ye gazing up into heaven? this same Jesus, which is taken up from you into heaven, shall so come in like manner as ye have seen him go into heaven. The conception of John the Baptist! Luke 1:13,36.13But the angel said unto him, Fear not, Zacharias: for thy prayer is heard; and thy wife Elisabeth shall bear thee a son, and thou shalt call his name John.36And, behold, thy cousin Elisabeth, she hath also conceived a son in her old age: and this is the sixth month with her, who was called barren.

Some folks seem to be offended by singing about the blood and want hymns that sing about the blood of Christ removed. Hymns like, ” Redeemed, redeemed by the blood of the Lamb”; There is power in the blood”; ” Alas! And did my Saviour bleed”; ” Saved by the blood of the Crucified One”; ” When I see the blood”; ” My faith has found a resting place”, and many others. Dear folk, if we remove the blood, we remove the gospel; If we remove the blood, we remove our hope; If we remove the blood, we remove the Saviour. We remove His love, His grace and His salvation. Without the shedding of the blood of Jesus, we have no hope of salvation and no hope of Heaven. With out the shedding of the blood of Jesus we have no remission of sins and no hope for mankind. Jesus said, ” I am the way, the truth and the life, and no man cometh to the Father but by me.” The shedding of the blood of Jesus purchased our ticket to Heaven! ~ Winston Staples
Hi my friends today we are going to look into God’s word to see what he says about angels. Celebrate the praises of God. Job 38:7. Psa. 148:2. Isa. 6:3. Luke 2:13, 14. Rev. 5:11, 12. Rev. 7:11, 12. Rev.5:11And I beheld, and I heard the voice of many angels round about the throne and the beasts and the elders: and the number of them was ten thousand times ten thousand, and thousands of thousands; 12Saying with a loud voice, Worthy is the Lamb that was slain to receive power, and riches, and wisdom, and strength, and honour, and glory, and blessing. The law given by the ministration of angels.. Psa. 68:17. Acts 7:53. Heb. 2:2. Heb.2:2For if the word spoken by angels was stedfast, and every transgression and disobedience received a just recompence of reward; Angels announced the following events: The conception of Christ. Mat. 1:20, 21. Luke 1:31. Matt.1:20But while he thought on these things, behold, the angel of the LORD appeared unto him in a dream, saying, Joseph, thou son of David, fear not to take unto thee Mary thy wife: for that which is conceived in her is of the Holy Ghost. 21And she shall bring forth a son, and thou shalt call his name JESUS: for he shall save his people from their sins. The birth of Christ. Luke 2:10-12. Luke 2: 10And the angel said unto them, Fear not: for, behold, I bring you good tidings of great joy, which shall be to all people. 11For unto you is born this day in the city of David a Saviour, which is Christ the Lord. 12And this shall be a sign unto you; Ye shall find the babe wrapped in swaddling clothes, lying in a manger.

I awoke this morning,
this song was on my mind,
His eye is on the sparrow’
and I know He watches me.
What an awesome and caring God,
He loves all His creation,
even little old me.
I am looking forward,
to that day,
when I shall see,
the wonderful face of Jesus,
saying, welcome to heaven,

Hi Friends! Today we are looking at 3 more characteristics of Angels according to the Scriptures. Daniel 8:16,17; 9:21-23; 10:11; 12:6-7; Matt. 2:13,19-20; Luke 1:19,28; Acts 5:20;8:26; 10:5; 27:23; Rev.1:1. Luke 1:28And the angel came in unto her, and said, Hail, thou that art highly favoured, the Lord is with thee: blessed art thou among women.
Daniel 8:16-17 16And I heard a man’s voice between the banks of Ulai, which called, and said, Gabriel, make this man to understand the vision.
17So he came near where I stood: and when he came, I was afraid, and fell upon my face: but he said unto me, Understand, O son of man: for at the time of the end shall be the vision. Matt.2:13,19-20–13And when they were departed, behold, the angel of the Lord appeareth to Joseph in a dream, saying, Arise, and take the young child and his mother, and flee into Egypt, and be thou there until I bring thee word: for Herod will seek the young child to destroy him.
19But when Herod was dead, behold, an angel of the Lord appeareth in a dream to Joseph in Egypt,
20Saying, Arise, and take the young child and his mother, and go into the land of Israel: for they are dead which sought the young child’s life. Re.1:1The Revelation of Jesus Christ, which God gave unto him, to shew unto his servants things which must shortly come to pass; and he sent and signified it by his angel unto his servant John: Angels deliver messages from God to man! Psalms 103:20; Matt.6:10– Psalms 103:20Bless the LORD, ye his angels, that excel in strength, that do his commandments, hearkening unto the voice of his word. Matt. 6:10Thy kingdom come, Thy will be done in earth, as it is in heaven. Angels obey the will of God! Ex sept for those that rebelled with Satan and followed him. Numbers 22:22; Psalms 103:21; Matt.13:39-42; Matt. 28:2; John 5:4; Rev.5:2. Num.22:22And God’s anger was kindled because he went: and the angel of the LORD stood in the way for an adversary against him. Now he was riding upon his ass, and his two servants were with him. John 5:4For an angel went down at a certain season into the pool, and troubled the water: whosoever then first after the troubling of the water stepped in was made whole of whatsoever disease he had. Rev.5:2And I saw a strong angel proclaiming with a loud voice, Who is worthy to open the book, and to loose the seals thereof? Angels execute the purposes of God! [ to be continued ]
Angels are pictured or painted as beautiful beings with majestic wings, usually a female like being. What does the Bible say about these beings? In the next few days we are going on a voyage through the Scriptures to see what the creator has to say about angels. So come along on this voyage with me! Neh.9:6; Col.1:16. Neh.9:6 You alone are the LORD;
You have made heaven,
The heaven of heavens, with all their host,
The earth and everything on it,
The seas and all that is in them,
And You preserve them all.
The host of heaven worships You.
Col.1:16 For by Him all things were created that are in heaven and that are on earth, visible and invisible, whether thrones or dominions or principalities or powers. All things were created through Him and for Him. These beings were created by God and Christ! Neh.9:6; Phil. 2:9-11; Hebrews 1:6. Phil.2:9 Therefore God also has highly exalted Him and given Him the name which is above every name, 10 that at the name of Jesus every knee should bow, of those in heaven, and of those on earth, and of those under the earth, 11 and thatevery tongue should confess that Jesus Christ is Lord, to the glory of God the Father. Hebrews 1:6 But when He again brings the firstborn into the world, He says:
“ Let all the angels of God worship Him. Angels worship God and Christ!
1 Kings 19:5; Psalms68:17; 104:4; Luke 16:22; Acts 12:7-11; Acts27:23; Hebrews 1:6,7. Psalms 104:4 Who makes His angels spirits,
His ministers a flame of fire. Acts 12:7 Now behold, an angel of the Lord stood by him, and a light shone in the prison; and he struck Peter on the side and raised him up, saying, “Arise quickly!” And his chains fell off his hands. 8 Then the angel said to him, “Gird yourself and tie on your sandals”; and so he did. And he said to him, “Put on your garment and follow me.” 9 So he went out and followed him, and did not know that what was done by the angel was real, but thought he was seeing a vision. 10 When they were past the first and the second guard posts, they came to the iron gate that leads to the city, which opened to them of its own accord; and they went out and went down one street, and immediately the angel departed from him.
11 And when Peter had come to himself, he said, “Now I know for certain that the Lord has sent His angel, and has delivered me from the hand of Herod and from all the expectation of the Jewish people.” Angels are ministering spirits! [ to be continued ]
