									Amazing Facts About Angels

Many people may not be aware but there are several truly amazing facts
about angels, most especially since it literally bears reference in the
Bible no less than 300 times- all the way from Genesis to Revelation.
Other religious manuscripts and literature bear similar and fascinating
facts about the existence of angels and how it continues to captivate and
awe mankind.

In the Bible, the angel is portrayed at the beginning as a carrier of
messages from God, while in the closing passages of Revelation the angel
is the bearer of the message from Jesus Christ.

Here are some amazing facts that are seen in the Bible.
Angels also care for soldiers and members of the military. This is
evidenced in scripture where it was identified that the very first
Gentile convert was a military officer.

Acts chapter 10 verses 3 and 4 states that "About the ninth hour of the
day he clearly saw in a vision an angel of God who had just come in to
him, and said to him, ‘Cornelius!’ and fixing his gaze upon him and being
much alarmed, he said, ‘What is it, Lord?’ And he said to him, ‘Your
prayers and alms have ascended as a memorial before God "

In the same book if Acts, the scriptures vividly describe that no prison
or jail cell can detain an angel, many instances of which angels have
appeared to many Christian followers like Peter and Paul, among others,
who were freed by angels from confinement in prison.

Angels are tasked to keep watch and safeguard little children. Jesus
Christ fondly spoke of children being under the care of angels.
The scriptures also declare that angels are subject to Jesus Christ as
the Supreme Commander, thus, angles cannot perform the works of the Holy
Spirit nor can they grant forgiveness of man’s sins, as stated in I Peter
chapter 3 verses 21 and 22.

A great multitude of angels descended on Mt. Sinai, the place where the
prophet Moses received the tablet bearing the laws god wanted to bring to
His people the Israelites, which had reference to the scriptures where
the psalmist declared "Why do you look with envy, O mountains with many
peaks, at the mountain which God has desired for His abode? Surely, the
Lord will dwell there forever. The chariots of God are myriads, thousands
upon thousands; the Lord is among them as at Sinai, in holiness" (Psalm
68:16,17)

Angels also live in constant communion with God, who continually praise
and worship Him. "And Zacharias said to the angel, ‘How shall I know this
for certain? For I am an old man, and my wife is advanced in years,’ And
the angel answered and said to him, ‘I am Gabriel, who stands in the
presence of God: and I have been sent to speak to you, and to bring to
you this good news." (Luke 1:18,19)

Heaven remains to be the center of activity for angels and there exists
the busiest traffic of angels from heaven to earth and back, which
clearly indicates that to deny the existence of angels and of heaven is
to deny the Deity of Christ.

Jesus Christ often spoke both of angels and heaven and one good example
can be found in the book of John chapter 1 verses 50 and 51, "Jesus
answered and said to him, ‘Because I said to you that I saw you under the
fig tree, do you believe? You shall see greater things than these.’ And
He said to him, ‘Truly, truly, I say to you, you shall see the heavens
opened, and the angels of God ascending and descending on the Son of
Man."

These are but some amazing facts about angels, but if you find the time
to read through the Bible, you may be surprised to discover a lot more
amazing facts about angels that you may have ever imagined.
