Some Thoughts On Angels PDF Print E-mail

Below is the answer to a question I received via email.

Question: What are angels and what do they do?

Answer:

Angels are ministering spirits, that is, they minister to us (I believe invisibly most of the time) in times of need (Hebrews 1:14). They are of greater power than are we (at His incarnation, Christ was made LOWER than angels, as a man - Hebrews 2:9). In fact just one angel killed 185,000 Assyrians in one night in Isaiah 37! There are many angels, arguably equally proportional to the number of God's children alive at any given time (Mth 18:10). So many, that they are considered an innumerable company (Hebrews 12:22).

Angels bring messages to God's people (Luke 1:19). They also fight God's battles militarily (Revelation 12:7, Matthew 26:53). Angels also perform certain tasks for God on earth (Jude 1:9). Luke 16:22 indicates that angels carry us to the Lord's presence when we die.

Some angels did indeed rebel against God (ie the angels that sinned) sometime after the creation (2 Peter 2:4). This was probably at the time of the fall of Adam, though we don't know for sure. Nor do we know their names. The "lake of fire" is a place reserved for the devil and his angels (Mth 25:41). It is presumed that these "devil's angels" are those who fell into sin.

According to 1 Timothy 5:21, Angels who did not sin are called "elect angels." They are upright and serve God in Holiness.

Hope these thoughts help.

I received these questions via email...below are my answers.

I was hoping you could impart your thoughts to me on Galatians 3:2 -

1) In what sense is Paul talking about receiving the Spirit?

2) What is meant by the "hearing of faith"?

3) And does this verse at all correlate with Romans 10:17

Prayer Request for Constacio Tejada PDF Print E-mail
Written by Ben Winslett   
Monday, 06 September 2010 07:56

This is a prayer request I received earlier today from a dear friend Elder Darrel Chambers. Please pray for the brother reported of in the below email.


Several of of you may remember Elder Constacio (Cons) Tejada - a dear Primitive Baptist elder from the Philippines. He visited with several other ministers a few years ago. Elder Tejada's father passed away while he was visiting Union Church on this previous trip. I felt so sorry for him then to see him grieve from half a world away from his family. Elder Tejada is also a brother-in-law to Elder Manolo Dalman that recently completed a trip to America to preach in several places. He accompanied us and served as our protector and safety adviser on some of our trips to dangerous parts of Mindanao - never leaving our sight except when we broke down on the mountainside and he left to get parts for the car. I love and appreciate him very much. Most of all, I love his preaching and zeal for the Lord. He is a great preacher and interpreter.

Elder Tejada suffered a stroke earlier in the week and is paralyzed on his right side. Initially he couldn't speak intelligibly, but that has greatly improved. He also could not feel his right side at first, but some feeling is now returning. We hope and pray this dear brother will continue to improve under the blessings of our Great Physician. Eld. Tejada lives in a remote part of Mindanao where there are not hospitals close by. Elder Dalman had to drive several hours to pick up Bro. Tejada to take him to Pagadian to a hospital. He was released yesterday and is returning home to recover. Please keep this dear brother in your prayers.

Blessings,

Darrel Chambers
