Angels, The Heavenly HostBY: Jose Martell | Category: Religion | Submitted: 2012-01-24 04:34:57
Article Summary: "Hebrew 13:2, do not forget to entertain strangers, for by doing so some people have entertained angels without knowing it..."
God's kingdom is composed of God the Father, God the Son, and God the Holy Spirit, along with millions of angels. The bible talks of many types of angels, some good and some evil. The good ones do Gods bidding and serve Gods elect which are those who have been saved through the life and death of Jesus Christ. Like the demonic realm which is the enemy, Gods angels are ranked much as a human army is ranked, with generals being the highest, all the way down to the warriors who do the fighting. In religious art work you always see God traveling with angels at his side, that's because in the bible the cherubim's were on either side of the mercy sit as well as the tabernacle, always on either side of God. You can read about this in Exodus 37:6 and 1 Kings 6:23.
A few people on earth have seen a semblance of God at some time when in need, but many, many more have seen angels. I have had the privilege of seeing angels several times, sometimes when in need as when I suffered through a heart ailment for many years. For a while an angel would show up once a month and give me electric shots while I lay in bed to keep me from dying. I never saw him as you would see a person; I just made out his outline in the dark. But he would give me a set of electric shots that bought me back to life every time my heart stopped. The shots always made me jump up out of bed but were not painful except for the last one that seemed to burn a hole right through me. One time he came to see how I was doing and just sat on a table and looked at me.
During this time another patient in that hospital told me that one night he had a stroke and didn't think he would make it. He said that he looked out his window and could see a man standing there looking at him and that he could hear this man speaking to him in his mind. The man told him not to worry because he had been sent to look out for him and that he would indeed live and not die. That same week I also looked out the same window and saw the man standing out in the street looking at me. Then I heard him speak in my mind telling me that everything was alright.
After this I started to seek out angel stories to see if what we had experienced was unique, but I found out that many people had experienced similar things with the heavenly host. My most memorable experience was with a friend who I told my angel stories to. He listened and listened and that night in his prayers told God that if he did not meet an angel he would never go back to church and he would forget all this. The next day he told me that the angel did appear that night and told him some things about his life which he did not want to hear. He became so upset that he fell out of bed and was just laying their when the angel stooped down and lifted him into his bed. Then I asked him about the clothes the angel had on and he told me that he was dressed in white silk pants that were very loose along with a pink shirt the looked like a blouse more than a shirt. He had on what my friend called bobo shoes which were very colorful along with a huge pointed hat.
I thought that my friend was stretching the truth because of the stories I had told him until he started to tell all his other friends and they called me to see what I had done to Henry. I called him and told him not to tell this story to others because they thought he was crazy or lying, but he insisted that it was true. Several nights later the room I slept in felt as if I were in Alaska except that it was summer and the air was of. I awoke and there in the living room sat the biggest angel I had ever seen or read about. Henry had told me that he was very big but never told me just how big, he seemed to be around 12 or 15 feet tall.
He never talked he just spoke to my mind and said "I'm the one who helped Henry". What I noticed more than anything else was his smile and joy at seeing me. I remember saying "all this time it has been you, right?" and he said "yes." I looked at his clothes and he was dressed just as Henry had described him to me. Than he just disappeared and I sat there wondering, I never told Henry what I had seen, I was in enough trouble with the people around us.
I believe that one of the reason people do not see more angels is that men are prone to idolize them and this is strictly forbidden by God. Even in the bible people wanted to worship angels and they always forbid it telling them to worship Jesus. Angels were created by God to have fellowship with him and to be his people in the spirit world. The book of Revelations is full of angel stories for they will be the ones to bring an end to the world as we know it.
In spiritual warfare when satan moves an army of evil angels to open up a new front against some city or country, God moves battalions of good angels to fight him of. If not for these good angels we would never stand a chance against the powers of darkness that come to destroy our cities and bring mayhem upon humanity. Once in my stupidity I spoke very harshly about the angels of God and that night in my sleep I felt as if someone had punched me in the jaw and knocked out several teeth. The next day I had a sense of dread as I went about my business and I could still feel the pain though I had all my teeth. A few weeks later in a dream the Father scolded me for speaking of the angels in such a way and I knew than that they were the ones who had hit me in a dream.
Hebrew 1:6 And again when God brings his firstborn into the world, he says, "Let all Gods angels worship him." 1:7 In speaking of the angels he says, "He makes his angels winds, his servants flames of fire. 1:14, Are not all angels ministering spirits sent to serve those who will inherit salvation? 13:2 Do not forget to entertain strangers, for by doing so some people have entertained angels without knowing it. 1 Corinthians 6:3, Do you not know that we will judge angels? How much more the things of this life.
