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 ]
