Oh man and or the full story the first and the time. Nice Here now is H.M.'s Richard. Is that always a prophecy speaker is subject to what Jesus said about angels in the hearts of millions of people today. There's no room in left for the holy angels of God but those who believe the Bible must believe in the holy angels. The Bible itself is a Book of Angels. It says that the number of the angels is ten thousand times ten thousand and thousands of thousands. That's one hundred million. Read those words in Revelation five eleven. And Hebrews twelve twenty two and in numerable company of angels we just can't count them according to Scripture. Angels existed before death ever entered this world because you remember they were there at the gate of paradise with a sword which turned every way to keep the Way of the tree of life. Genesis three twenty four. Since they lived before any man ever died they were not the spirits of the dead and psalm eight verse five we read the text made to him that is man a little more than the angels so they are created beings. The angel Gabriel was sent to the little town of Nazareth to the Blessed Virgin Mary to announce the birth of Jesus. One twenty eight. Not only was his birth announced by an angel but he was also named by an angel. Luke two twenty one and when his birth actually occurred it was announced by an angel to the frightened shepherds. Fear not he said Behold I bring you good tidings of great joy. After his baptism Jesus was tempted by the devil when he fasted forty days in the wilderness exhausted from this terrible conflict. He was strengthened by angels. We read in Matthew four eleven there are at least seventeen passages in the New Testament alone in which Jesus speaks of the angels and a ministry for man. Every true believer has a guardian angel an angel appointed by God to watch over to guide to care for him from childhood to the grave. Just read Matthew eighteen eleven when King Herod cast the apostle Peter into prison intending to bring him out to execution. An angel delivered him in the night although he was bound to change between two guard. It's when the apostle Peter came out of the prison and went down to the home of one of the believers where they were having a prayer meeting a young girl named Rhoda came to listen at the door and she knew Peter's voice she was so happy that he was there that she ran in without opening the door and told the others Peter's here. They wouldn't believe it it was too good to be true they said it is his angel that's X. twelve fourteen that shows the early Christians believed in guardian angels the Jewish people of those days believed in the ministry of holy angels for did they not have wonderful promises there in Psalm ninety one eleven he shall give his angels charge over the to keep the you know my ways. Yes they believed in angels and began in some thirty four seven we have the promise of the angel of the Lord in camp of the round about them that fear him and deliver them. That's been a blessing promise to our family I can remember father and mother quoting that text to us and many a time of danger. We have the promise of Angel health care in the Holy Scriptures. We read of angels of having spoken to one of the old patriarchs at the door of these Tant. Genesis eighteen one and two are distressed farmers who stretched his wheat under an oak tree fearing an armed Raider would come and seize his grain. Six chapter of judges they appeared to be persecuted apostles in prison. X. five X. twelve. We can't think of one instance of angels visiting a king on his throne are normal in this palace a rich man surrounded by splendor or a philosopher among his books an angel once came to a prophet who was trusting in his own wisdom and trying hard to outwit the wisdom of God In that case the angel came. With a drawn sword apostate prophet was saved from death only by his donkey. Read the story in numbers twenty two and I don't want to came to a king on his throne all right but it was to smite him with the worm so that he gave up the ghost exit twelve chapter. These records are all found in Holy Writ. Jesus said The angels are interested in man's salvation. Luke fifteen ten I say unto you There is more joy in the presence of the angels of God over one sinner that repents Jesus mentioned that they're interested in us and our confession of Christ before man is known to them also for Jesus said Whosoever shall confess me before men here Michel the Son of Man also confess before the angels of God twelve eight in this world of ours men and women are born and die they married and. Given in marriage that Jesus said and I'm quoting Luke twenty verse thirty five they which shall be accounted worthy to obtain that world and the resurrection from the dead. Neither marry nor are given in marriage. Neither can they die any more for they are equal unto the angels and are children of God being the children of the resurrection. Marriage then is unknown among the angels and they never die. When God created man he made him a little lower than the angels and crowned him of the glory and honor. But some day in relation to eternal life those who are redeemed will be equal unto the angels. There's also a dark side to what Jesus said about the angels. Not only does he speak of the angels of God Those ministering spirits sent forth to minister to them who shall be the heirs of salvation. Which we read in Hebrews one fourteen but he speaks also of evil angels. Here in Matthew twenty five forty one he speaks of the everlasting fire prepared for the devil and his angels. It's quite clear from scripture that approximately one third of the heavenly host fell into sin and rebellion with Satan himself a mighty angel was cast down to this earth as we read in Revelation twelve seven there was a war in heaven. Michael and his angels fought against the dragon the dragon fought and his angels and prevailed not and he was cast into the earth and his angels were cast out with these fallen angels are spoken of in the New Testament as demons they opposed our Saviour all through his earthly ministry. They recognized him and cried out. I know these are the Holy One of God come hither to torment us before the Time Lords in Luke four thirty four. It is these Fallen Angels the wandering band of the spirit world is Carlisle The Hanes calls them who are the spirits or spirit is an impersonating or dead teaching doctrines of demons preparing for the final conflict of the day of God. There Destiny has been settled forever as we read in second Peter two for God spared not the angels that sinned but cast them down to hell and delivered them into chains of darkness to be reserved to judgment. This is stated in other words in Jude six the angels which kept not there first a state he calls them here but left their own habitation he hath reserved in everlasting chains under darkness of the judgment of the great day thirteen chapter St Matthew's Gospel. Our Saviour tells us of the harvest of the world and we have his Expo. Nation of the parable in the latter part of the chapter where he says the good seed you sowed but the Son of Man The field is the word of the good seed to the children of the kingdom the tares are weeds are the children of the wicked one the enemy that sold them is the devil the harvest is the end of the world and the reapers are the angels so they have something to do you see with the final salvation of God's people at the end of time. And not only spoken of as God's angels but as his angels that is Christ's angels because they work for him and his harvest the harvest comes in connection with the second appearing of Christ in glory then shall appear the Son of Man and all the tribes of the Air Show morning they shall see the Son of Man coming in the clouds of heaven with power and great glory 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 twenty four thirty. The angels of God are unseen protectors and guides. Well holy angels who have at times appeared in the guise of man and walked this earth for the scripture says that some of the entertained angels unawares. That's Hebrews thirteen to all these angels of God will in that day be revealed in heavenly glory as we read in Matthew twenty five thirty one when the son of man shall come in His glory and all the holy angels with him. That's the day of glory of power the day of rejoicing then will be fulfilled in its completeness the promise made to the shepherds over the style of hills of Judea that there shall be glory in the highest and on earth peace good will toward man our Saviour will come of the three full glory as he himself said Luke nine twenty. Six his own glory his fathers and of the holy angels. When the angel appeared to Daniel in vision you will remember he fell at his feet as dead. Neither is there a breath left in me he said. That's the tenth chapter of Daniel. Then the angel strengthened him. We think also of the angel that appeared at the garden tools on the morning of Christ's resurrection and behold there was a great earthquake for the Angel of the Lord descended from heaven came and rolled back the stone and sat upon it. His countenance was like lightning is Raymond white as snow and for fear of him the keepers did shake and became as dead men. Luke twenty eight to the glory and power of just one angel shook the earth's smoke to soldier God to the ground. What will it be when the heavens are filled with those radiant forms and the saviour comes with all the holy angels. As our Savior drew near the end of his earthly life and entered the garden of this seminary where he began his final contest with Satan weight of the world soon began to bear down upon him. Until in his agony sweat rate drops of blood. When with strong crying and tears he prayed to his father saying Father if Sal be willing remove this cup from me. Never the less not my will but die and be done. We are told in that moment of supreme need here appeared an angel unto him from heaven strengthening him this beautiful stories and Luke the twenty second chapter and on the third day after Christ's death his resurrection was first announced by angel voices for the holy women return to the upper room and reported to the other disciples that they had also seen a vision of a. Those which said that he was alive twenty four twenty three. So we see that the birth life ministry atoning sacrifice resurrection and the second coming of our Lord Jesus Christ are all sustained by Angel ministry and that the redemption of this world involves things which the angels desire to look into as we read in first Peter one twelve. Yes Jesus said much about the angels and we should seek to know more about their holy ministry. Are my soul angelic songs are swelling or earth's green fields and oceans wave beach or how sweet the truth those blasted strains are telling of that new life when Sian shall be no more angels sing on your faithful watches keeping saying our sweet fragments of the songs of the morning's joy shall end the night of weeping and life's long shadows break in cloudless angels of Jesus angels of light singing to welcome the Pilgrim.
