These are difficult times. Do you sometimes wish for a power greater than yourself to help you through a bad spell? I do. I feel this strongly when I pray for: the suffering in the Middle East, our wounded troops, the persecuted church, America, and President Obama.
Angels to the rescue. Though I am Christian, you don't have to be Christian to believe in angels. Also, you may be interested in what Christianity teaches about them.
Let's take a look at what Scripture has to say about angels, starting with the fact that we can call upon innumerable numbers of them for innumerable tasks.
“Then I looked, and I heard the voice of many angels around the throne, the living creatures, and the elders; and the number of them was ten thousand times ten thousand, and thousands of thousand” Revelation 5:11
“Take heed that you do not despise one of these little ones, for I say to you that in heaven their angels always see the face of My Father who is in heaven.”Matthew 18:10
Angels, commanded by God, are ready to do all manner of things for us, if we only ask. When we cannot see our way clear, we can call upon God’s angels for:
“He ascends the heights, leading many captives in his train… even those who once were rebels.” Psalm 68:18 (TLB)
“Likewise, I say to you, there is joy in the presence of the angels of God over one sinner who repents.” Luke 15:10
“Then I saw another angel flying in the midst of heaven, having the everlasting gospel to preach to those who dwell on the earth—to every nation, tribe, tongue, and people” Revelation 14:5 (NKJV)
FOR THE CARE OF “LITTLE ONES” WHO’S ANGELS ARE ALWAYS IN THE PRESENCE OF GOD
"Take heed that you do not despise one of these little ones, for I say to you that in heaven their angels always see the face of My Father who is in heaven.”Matthew 18:10
“For it is written: ‘He shall give His angels charge over you, to keep you in all your ways.” Luke 4:10, Psalm 119: 11
FOR PROTECTION SPECIFICALLY
“Or do you think that I cannot now pray to My Father, and He will provide Me with more than twelve legions of angels?” (Jesus is speaking here, but the same way he could protect Jesus, you can protect his other children)) Matthew 26:53
FOR MAKING THINGS KNOWN TO US
“So it was, when the angels had gone away from them into heaven, that the shepherds said to one another, “Let us now go to Bethlehem and see this thing that has come to pass, which the Lord has made known to us.” Luke 2:15
“When they did not find His body, they came saying that they had also seen a vision of angels who said He was alive.” Luke 24:23
“And she saw two angels in white sitting, one at the head and the other at the feet, where the body of Jesus had lain. And they said unto her, “Woman, why weepest thou?” John 20:12-14
“... You deliberately disobeyed God’s law, even though you received it from the hands of angels.” Acts 7: 52-54 (NLT)
“Then one of the seven angels who had the seven bowls came and talked with me, saying to me, “Come, I will show you the judgment of the great harlot who sits on many waters.”ARevelations 17: 1
