JESUS and ANGELS

 

The angel of the Lord tells the shepherds:

Luke 2:12

King James Version

12 And this shall be a sign unto you; 

Ye shall find the babe wrapped in swaddling clothes, 

lying in a manger.


In GOD's plan of salvation, His beloved SON, JESUS, figures centrally.

Thus, angels were called to minister upon Him, for He is LORD of ALL.

From the day He was born, angels have served the LORD JESUS.

Luke 1:11-20

King James Version

11 And there appeared unto him an angel of the Lord standing on the right side of the altar of incense.

12 And when Zacharias saw him, 

he was troubled, 

and fear fell upon him.

13 But 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.

14 And thou shalt have joy and gladness; 

and many shall rejoice at his birth.

15 For he shall be great in the sight of the Lord, 

and shall drink neither wine nor strong drink; 

and he shall be filled with the Holy Ghost, 

even from his mother's womb.

16 And many of the children of Israel shall he turn to the Lord their God.

17 And he shall go before him in the spirit and power of Elias, 

to turn the hearts of the fathers to the children, 

and the disobedient to the wisdom of the just; 

to make ready a people prepared for the Lord.

18 And Zacharias said unto the angel, 

Whereby shall I know this? 

for I am an old man, 

and my wife well stricken in years.

19 And the angel answering said unto him, 

I am Gabriel, 

that stand in the presence of God; 

and am sent to speak unto thee, 

and to shew thee these glad tidings.

20 And, behold, 

thou shalt be dumb, 

and not able to speak, 

until the day that these things shall be performed,

because thou believest not my words, 

which shall be fulfilled in their season.


Luke 1:26-35

King James Version

26 And in the sixth month the angel Gabriel was sent from God unto a city of Galilee, 

named Nazareth,

27 To a virgin espoused to a man whose name was Joseph, 

of the house of David; 

and the virgin's name was Mary.

28 And the angel came in unto her, 

and said, 

Hail, thou that art highly favoured, 

the Lord is with thee: 

blessed art thou among women.

29 And when she saw him, 

she was troubled at his saying, 

and cast in her mind what manner of salutation this should be.

30 And the angel said unto her, 

Fear not, 

Mary: 

for thou hast found favour with God.

31 And, 

behold, 

thou shalt conceive in thy womb, 

and bring forth a son, 

and shalt call his name Jesus.

32 He shall be great, 

and shall be called the Son of the Highest: 

and the Lord God shall give unto him the throne of his father David:

33 And he shall reign over the house of Jacob for ever; 

and of his kingdom there shall be no end.

34 Then said Mary unto the angel, 

How shall this be, 

seeing I know not a man?

35 And the angel answered and said unto her, 

The Holy Ghost shall come upon thee, 

and the power of the Highest shall overshadow thee: 

therefore also that holy thing which shall be born of thee shall be called the Son of God.


Luke 2:8-15

King James Version

8 And there were in the same country shepherds abiding in the field, 

keeping watch over their flock by night.

9 And, lo, 

the angel of the Lord came upon them, 

and the glory of the Lord shone round about them: 

and they were sore afraid.

10 And the angel said unto them, 

Fear not: 

for, 

behold, 

I bring you good tidings of great joy, 

which shall be to all people.

11 For unto you is born this day in the city of David a Saviour, 

which is Christ the Lord.

12 And this shall be a sign unto you; 

Ye shall find the babe wrapped in swaddling clothes, 

lying in a manger.

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.

15 And it came to pass

as the angels were gone away from them into heaven

the shepherds said one to another, 

Let us now go even unto Bethlehem, 

and see this thing which is come to pass, 

which the Lord hath made known unto us.


Matthew 1:19-21

King James Version

19 Then Joseph her husband, 

being a just man, 

and not willing to make her a public example, 

was minded to put her away privily.

20 But 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.

21 And she shall bring forth a son, 

and thou shalt call his name Jesus: 

for he shall save his people from their sins.


Matthew 2:13

King James Version

13 And 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.


Matthew 2:19-23

King James Version

19 But when Herod was dead, 

behold, 

an angel of the Lord appeareth in a dream to Joseph in Egypt,

20 Saying, 

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.

21 And he arose, 

and took the young child and his mother, 

and came into the land of Israel.

22 But when he heard that Archelaus did reign in Judaea in the room of his father Herod, 

he was afraid to go thither: 

notwithstanding, 

being warned of God in a dream

he turned aside into the parts of Galilee:

23 And he came and dwelt in a city called Nazareth: 

that it might be fulfilled which was spoken by the prophets, 

He shall be called a Nazarene.


Mark 1:13

King James Version

13 And he was there in the wilderness forty days, tempted of Satan; 

and was with the wild beasts; 

and the angels ministered unto him.


Matthew 4:11

King James Version

11 Then the devil leaveth him, 

and, 

behold, 

angels came and ministered unto him.


Let the matter about angels rest, from the WORD of GOD -- JESUS:

Matthew 4:5-7

King James Version

5 Then the devil taketh him up into the holy city, 

and setteth him on a pinnacle of the temple,

6 And saith unto him, 

If thou be the Son of God, 

cast thyself down: 

for it is written, 

He shall give his angels charge concerning thee: 

and in their hands they shall bear thee up, 

lest at any time thou dash thy foot against a stone.

7 Jesus said unto him, 

It is written again, 

Thou shalt not tempt the Lord thy God.


Matthew 13:39-41

King James Version

39 The enemy that sowed them is the devil; 

the harvest is the end of the world; 

and the reapers are the angels.

40 As therefore the tares are gathered and burned in the fire; 

so shall it be in the end of this world.

41 The 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;

and sever the wicked from among the just,

for I say unto you, 

That in heaven their angels do always behold the face of my Father which is in heaven.

King James Version

29 Jesus answered and said unto them, 

Ye do err, 

not knowing the scriptures, 

nor the power of God.

30 For in the resurrection they neither marry, 

nor are given in marriage, 

but are as the angels of God in heaven.


Matthew 24:30-31

King James Version

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.

no, 

not the angels of heaven, 

but my Father only.


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:


Matthew 25:40-43

King James Version

40 And the King shall answer and say unto them, 

Verily I say unto you, 

Inasmuch as ye have done it unto one of the least of these my brethren,

ye have done it unto me.

41 Then shall he say also unto them on the left hand, 

Depart from me, 

ye cursed,

into everlasting fire, 

prepared for the devil and his angels:

42 For I was an hungred, 

and ye gave me no meat: 

I was thirsty, 

and ye gave me no drink:

43 I was a stranger, 

and ye took me not in: 

naked, 

and ye clothed me not: 

sick, 

and in prison, 

and ye visited me not.


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?


Mark 8:38

and seeth Abraham afar off, 

and Lazarus in his bosom.

The children of this world marry, 

and are given in marriage:

35 But they which shall be accounted worthy to obtain that world, 

and the resurrection from the dead, 

neither marry, 

nor are given in marriage:

36 Neither can they die any more: 

for they are equal unto the angels; 

and are the children of God, 

being the children of the resurrection.

and kneeled down, 

and prayed,

Father, 

if thou be willing, 

remove this cup from me: 

nevertheless not my will, 

but thine, 

be done.

I saw thee under the fig tree, 

believest thou? 

thou shalt see greater things than these.

Verily, verily, 

I say unto you, 

Hereafter ye shall see heaven open, 

and the angels of God ascending and descending upon the Son of man.

she stooped down, 

and looked into the sepulchre,

the one at the head, 

and the other at the feet, 

where the body of Jesus had lain.

13 And they say unto her, 

Woman, 

why weepest thou

She saith unto them, 

Because they have taken away my Lord, 

and I know not where they have laid him.

14 And when she had thus said, 

she turned herself back, 

and saw Jesus standing, 

and knew not that it was Jesus.

and glory, 

and blessing.

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.

10 And he saith unto me, 

Seal not the sayings of the prophecy of this book: 

for the time is at hand.
