Are Angels Among us Today?

Under Covenant, during Israel's rise angels were among them.

Zechariah 1:8-9 I saw by night, and behold a man riding upon a red horse, and he stood among the myrtle trees that were in the bottom; and behind him were there red horses, speckled, and white. Then said I, O my lord, what are these? And the angel that talked with me said unto me, I will shew thee what these be.

Matthew 28:5-6 And the angel answered and said unto the women, Fear not ye: for I know that ye seek Jesus, which was crucified. He is not here: for he is risen, as he said. Come, see the place where the Lord lay.

Under Grace, during Israel's fall we have no need for an encounter with an angel, and will one day JUDGE them.

1 Corinthians 6:3 Know ye not that we shall judge angels? how much more things that pertain to this life.

Note: Today we hear all sorts of people who claim to have had a supernatural visitation from an angel. Whether in their car, on a plane or at their bedside, some claim that an angel of the Lord appeared to them.

Hebrews 1:14 Are they not all ministering spirits, sent forth to minister for them who shall be heirs of salvation?

The angels being spoken of here WERE and in the future will BE sent forth to the Hebrews and not to the members of the body of Christ.

The Hebrews in this context are not "heirs of salvation" by grace through faith without works, but rather will have endured through the tribulation to receive their earthly kingdom.

With the law written into their mind and hearts (Hebrews 8:10) and "ministering spirits, sent forth" unto them, they will indeed be equipped to make it through the tribulation.

We have no need for angels to come to us, we have something far greater! Unlike Israel, we, by grace through faith are complete in Christ (Colossians 2:10) which makes us "throughly furnished unto all good works." (2 Timothy 3:17).

Question: How many mediators does God say we have?

For there is one God, and one mediator between God and men, the man Christ Jesus; (1 Timothy 2:5).

So if Christ Jesus is our "one mediator" what need would we have for a visit from an angel? If Christ is the "one" then there is no room for an angel, that would be TWO.

This one verse all by itself dispels the idea that there are angels visiting anyone today. If there are, then 1 Timothy 2:5 is incorrect and God lied and did NOT preserve his words (Psalm 12:7).

Moreover, the description people use today to describe their so called "angel encounter" never matches the biblical description of an angel.

The bible NEVER describes an angel as being a female or having wings, and there is not even one BABY angel.

Most of our readers are stunned to learn this.

Angels were always wingless men (Genesis 18:2, Ezekiel 9:2, Judges 6:21, Zechariah 1:8, 19, Revelation 10:1; 14:19; 16:2 etc......

And in Hebrews 13:12 we read "Be not forgetful to entertain strangers: for thereby some have entertained angels unawares."

Make no mistake about it, if angels looked the way religious folk describe them and artists depict them, no one would entertain them "unawares".

Truth is, we would be VERY much aware if someone with wings flew into the room.
