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 centre 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.
