GOD's ANGELS

 

Psalm 91:11

King James Version

11 For he shall give his angels charge over thee, 

to keep thee in all thy ways.


Who are the TRUE angels of GOD?

It's time to know God's TRUTH.

Only Scripture can reveal to you, which the HOLY SPIRIT guided me to.

First, you'll know GOD's angel by TWO DISTINCT "trademarks":

1. They ask you WORSHIP GOD alone.

2. They declare themselves "fellowservants".

Revelation 19:9-10

King James Version

9 And he saith unto me, 

Write, 

Blessed are they 

which are called unto the marriage supper of the Lamb.

 And he saith unto me, 

These are the true sayings of God.

10 And I fell at his feet to worship him

And he said unto me, 

See thou do it not: 

I am thy fellowservant, 

and of thy brethren 

that have the testimony of Jesus: 

worship God: 

for the testimony of Jesus 

is the spirit of prophecy.


Revelation 22:8-9

King James Version

8 And I John saw these things, 

and heard them. 

And when I had heard and seen, 

I fell down to worship before the feet of the angel 

which shewed me these things.

9 Then saith he unto me, 

See thou do it not: 

for I am thy fellowservant, 

and of thy brethren the prophets, 

and of them which keep the sayings of this book: 

worship God.


GOD must rightfully be worshiped:

Exodus 20:1-3

King James Version

20 And God spake all these words, 

saying,

2 I am the Lord thy God, 

which have brought thee out of the land of Egypt, 

out of the house of bondage.

3 Thou shalt have no other gods before me.


God also commanded we NOT make any graven image of anything else, nor worship them.

Exodus 20:4-5

King James Version

4 Thou shalt not make unto thee any graven image, 

or any likeness of any thing that is in heaven above, 

or that is in the earth beneath, 

or that is in the water under the earth.

5 Thou shalt not bow down thyself to them, 

nor serve them: 

for I the Lord thy God am a jealous God, 

visiting the iniquity of the fathers upon the children 

unto the third and fourth generation of them 

that hate me;


The world is drowning in idols.

But that's for another post.

And in case you doubt ONE angel's power, given by GOD:

2 Kings 19:35

King James Version

35 And it came to pass that night, 

that the angel of the Lord went out, 

and smote in the camp of the Assyrians 

an hundred fourscore and five thousand: 

and when they arose early in the morning, 

behold, 

they were all dead corpses.


That's 185,000 oppressors of Israel, slain in ONE night, by ONE angel.

Are we to anger God?

Are we to challenge His authority?

Are we to persecute His faithful?

Are we to curse His chosen nation, Israel?

It is right we fear Him.

And yet LOVE Him.

For He is our FATHER.


How about the number of angels -- easily at JESUS' disposal?

Matthew 26:51-54

King James Version

51 And, 

behold, 

one of them which were with Jesus stretched out his hand, 

and drew his sword, 

and struck a servant of the high priest's, 

and smote off his ear.

52 Then said Jesus unto him, 

Put up again thy sword into his place: 

for all they that take the sword 

shall perish with the sword.

53 Thinkest thou 

that I cannot now pray to my Father, 

and he shall presently give me 

more than twelve legions of angels?

54 But how then shall the scriptures be fulfilled, 

that thus it must be?


A legion is between 4,000 to 6,000 soldiers.

Multiplied by 12 legions?

That's 48,000 to 72,000 angels who could have easily assisted the LORD JESUS.

And if ONE could easily slay 185,000 enemies of God, can you imagine what 72,000 angels could do?

Why does man continue to defy God?

Really beats me.

But, of course, there's a different spirit in them.

The one who fell from heaven.

We truly have no idea of the MIGHT, POWER, and GLORY of GOD.

We have all been CREATED for GOD's PURPOSE.

For JESUS.

Colossians 1:13-17

King James Version

13 Who hath delivered us 

from the power of darkness, 

and hath translated us 

into the kingdom of his dear Son:

14 In whom we have redemption through his blood, 

even the forgiveness of sins:

15 Who is the image of the invisible God, 

the firstborn of every creature:

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:

17 And he is before all things, 

and by him all things consist.


That's why TRUE angels serve Him.

They worship Him alone.

And ask we do the same.

Let Scripture tell you more about GOD's angels:

Exodus 23:20-23

King James Version

20 Behold, 

I send an Angel before thee, 

to keep thee in the way, 

and to bring thee into the place 

which I have prepared.

21 Beware of him, 

and obey his voice, 

provoke him not; 

for he will not pardon your transgressions: 

for my name is in him.

22 But if thou shalt indeed obey his voice, 

and do all that I speak; 

then I will be an enemy unto thine enemies, 

and an adversary unto thine adversaries.

23 For mine Angel shall go before thee, 

and bring thee in unto the Amorites, 

and the Hittites, 

and the Perizzites, 

and the Canaanites, 

the Hivites, 

and the Jebusites: 

and I will cut them off.


Psalm 34:7

King James Version

7 The angel of the Lord encampeth round 

about them that fear him, 

and delivereth them.


Psalm 91:9-12

King James Version

9 Because thou hast made the Lord, 

which is my refuge, 

even the most High, 

thy habitation;

10 There shall no evil befall thee, 

neither shall any plague come nigh thy dwelling.

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.


Psalm 103:19-20

King James Version

19 The Lord hath prepared his throne in the heavens; 

and his kingdom ruleth over all.

20 Bless the Lord, 

ye his angels, 

that excel in strength, 

that do his commandments, 

hearkening unto the voice of his word.


Isaiah 6:1-3

King James Version

6 In the year that king Uzziah died 

I saw also the Lord sitting upon a throne, 

high and lifted up, 

and his train filled the temple.

2 Above it stood the seraphims:

 each one had six wings; 

with twain he covered his face, 

and with twain he covered his feet, 

and with twain he did fly.

3 And one cried unto another, 

and said, 

Holy, holy, holy, 

is the Lord of hosts: 

the whole earth is full of his glory.


Isaiah 6:5-7

King James Version

5 Then said I, 

Woe is me! 

for I am undone; 

because I am a man of unclean lips, 

and I dwell in the midst of a people of unclean lips: 

for mine eyes have seen the King, 

the Lord of hosts.

6 Then flew one of the seraphims unto me, 

having a live coal in his hand, 

which he had taken with the tongs from off the altar:

7 And he laid it upon my mouth, 

and said, 

Lo, 

this hath touched thy lips; 

and thine iniquity is taken away, 

and thy sin purged.


Daniel 6:21-22

King James Version

21 Then said Daniel unto the king, 

O king, 

live for ever.

22 My God hath sent his angel, 

and hath shut the lions' mouths, 

that they have not hurt me: 

forasmuch as before him 

innocency was found in me; 

and also before thee

O king, 

have I done no hurt.


Matthew 13:49

King James Version

49 So shall it be at the end of the world: 

the angels shall come forth, 

and sever the wicked from among the just,


Matthew 16:27

King James Version

27 For 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.


Matthew 18:10

King James Version

10 Take heed that ye despise not 

one of these little ones; 

for I say unto you, 

That in heaven their angels do always behold 

the face of my Father which is in heaven.


Matthew 24:30-31

King James Version

30 And then shall appear 

the sign of the Son of man in heaven: 

and then shall all the tribes of the earth mourn, 

and they shall see the Son of man coming 

in the clouds of heaven with power and great glory.

31 And 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.


Matthew 25:31-32

King James Version

31 When 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:

32 And before him shall be gathered all nations: 

and he shall separate them one from another, 

as a shepherd divideth his sheep from the goats:


Mark 8:38

King James Version

38 Whosoever 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.


Luke 2:13-14

King James Version

13 And suddenly there was with the angel 

a multitude of the heavenly host praising God, 

and saying,

14 Glory to God in the highest, 

and on earth peace, 

good will toward men.


Luke 15:10

King James Version

10 Likewise, 

I say unto you, 

there is joy in the presence of the angels of God 

over one sinner that repenteth.

King James Version

42 Saying, 

Father, 

if thou be willing, 

remove this cup from me: 

nevertheless not my will, 

but thine, 

be done.

43 And there appeared an angel unto him 

from heaven, 

strengthening him.


Acts 5:18-20

King James Version

18 And laid their hands on the apostles, 

and put them in the common prison.

19 But the angel of the Lord by night 

opened the prison doors, 

and brought them forth, 

and said,

20 Go, 

stand and speak in the temple to the people 

all the words of this life.


Acts 12:21-24

King James Version

21 And upon a set day Herod, 

arrayed in royal apparel, 

sat upon his throne, 

and made an oration unto them.

22 And the people gave a shout, saying, 

It is the voice of a god, 

and not of a man.

23 And immediately the angel of the Lord smote him, 

because he gave not God the glory

and he was eaten of worms, 

and gave up the ghost.

24 But the word of God grew and multiplied.


Colossians 2:18

King James Version

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,


Hebrews 1:13-14

King James Version

13 But to which of the angels said he at any time, 

Sit on my right hand, 

until I make thine enemies thy footstool?

14 Are they not all ministering spirits, 

sent forth to minister for them 

who shall be heirs of salvation?


Hebrews 13:1-2

King James Version

13 Let brotherly love continue.

2 Be not forgetful to entertain strangers: 

for thereby some have entertained angels unawares.


1 Peter 1:12

King James Version

12 Unto whom it was revealed, 

that not unto themselves, 

but unto us they did minister the things

which are now reported unto you 

by them that have preached the gospel unto you 

with the Holy Ghost sent down from heaven; 

which things the angels desire to look into.


Jude 9

King James Version

9 Yet Michael the archangel, 

when contending with the devil 

he disputed about the body of Moses

durst not bring against him a railing accusation, 

but said, 

The Lord rebuke thee.


Revelation 5:11-12

King James Version

11 And 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;

12 Saying 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.


Revelation 12:7-11

King James Version

7 And there was war in heaven: 

Michael and his angels fought against the dragon; 

and the dragon fought and his angels,

8 And prevailed not; 

neither was their place found any more in heaven.

9 And the great dragon was cast out, 

that old serpent, 

called the Devil, 

and Satan, 

which deceiveth the whole world: 

he was cast out into the earth, 

and his angels were cast out with him.

10 And I heard a loud voice saying in heaven, 

Now is come salvation, 

and strength, 

and the kingdom of our God, 

and the power of his Christ: 

for the accuser of our brethren is cast down, 

which accused them before our God day and night.

11 And they overcame him by the blood of the Lamb, 

and by the word of their testimony; 

and they loved not their lives unto the death.


EVERYTHING is really for the GLORY of GOD.

The born again faithful knows that.

And take heart.

The Bible is filled with stories on how God RESCUES His faithful, through His ministering angels.

Look how they served JESUS.
