Supernatural- Week 4

This past weekend we finished a great series that we adapted from Lifechurch.tv called, "Supernatural." I talked about who angels are and what they do in our world. There is so much misinformation in regards to angels and what they do. Well meaning people say lots of silly things that are simply nonsensical from a Biblical perspective. Angels are created spiritual beings that serve the desires and purpose of God. Check out some of the scriptures and thoughts about these important beings that are all around you!

Do not forget to entertain strangers, for by so doing some people have entertained angels without knowing it. Hebrews 13:2

WHO ARE ANGELS?

ANGELS ARE WORSHIPPERS.
"And then, when he presented his honored Son to the world, God said, "Let all the angels of God worship him." Hebrews 1:6 NLT
Then I looked and heard the voice of many angels, numbering thousands upon thousands, and ten thousand times ten thousand. They encircled the throne...In a loud voice they sang: "Worthy is the Lamb, who was slain, to receive power and wealth and wisdom and strength and honor and glory and praise!" Revelation 5:11-12

ANGELS ARE WARRIORS.  
"That night the angel of the LORD went out and put to death a hundred and eighty-five thousand men in the Assyrian camp." 2 Kings 19:35
"And there was war in heaven. Michael and his angels fought against the dragon, and the dragon and his angels fought back." Revelation 12:7

ANGELS ARE MESSENGERS.
"When the angel of the LORD appeared to Gideon, he said, "The LORD is with you, mighty warrior." Judges 6:12
"But the angel said to her, "Do not be afraid, Mary, you have found favor with God. 31 You will be with child and give birth to a son, and you are to give him the name Jesus." Luke 1:30-31     
                           
WHAT DO ANGELS DO?

ANGELS GIVE YOU DIRECTION.
"…an angel of the Lord appeared to (Joseph) in a dream and said, "Joseph son of David, do not be afraid to take Mary home as your wife, because what is conceived in her is from the Holy Spirit." Matthew 1:20       
"Balaam got up in the morning, saddled his donkey and went with the princes of Moab. But God was very angry when he went, and the angel of the LORD stood in the road to oppose him. Balaam was riding on his donkey, and his two servants were with him. When the donkey saw the angel of the LORD standing in the road with a drawn sword in his hand, she turned off the road into a field…" Numbers 22:21-23

ANGELS PROTECT YOU FROM DANGER.
"For he will command his angels concerning you to guard you in all your ways; they will lift you up in their hands, so that you will not strike your foot against a stone." Psalms 91:11-12
"Suddenly an angel of the Lord appeared and a light shone in the cell. He struck Peter on the side and woke him up. "Quick, get up!" he said, and the chains fell off Peter's wrists. Then the angel said to him, "Put on your clothes and sandals." And Peter did so. "Wrap your cloak around you and follow me," the angel told him…Then Peter came to himself and said, "Now I know without a doubt that the Lord sent his angel and rescued me from Herod's clutches…" Acts 12:7-8, 11

ANGELS MINISTER TO YOU.
Are not all angels ministering spirits sent to serve those who will inherit salvation? Hebrews 1:14
"Then the devil left Him, and behold, angels came and ministered to Him." Matthew 4:11
"An angel from heaven appeared to him and strengthened him." Luke 22:43
