Angelology 101 “Angelic Hosts”

Sermons

(We have all kinds of movies and TV shows about angels but we need to get our source of truth from the Holy Bible! From Genesis to Revelation the word Angel is mentioned approximately 200 to 273 times in the Bible depending on what version you use. This tells us Christians how important angels are to God! In Strong’s Exhaustive concordance the origin of angel in Greek means G32 – aggelos ä’n-ge-los 1) a messenger, envoy, one who is sent, a messenger from God.)

Luke 1:19 The angel answered, “I am Gabriel. I stand in the presence of God, and I have been sent to speak to you and to tell you this good news                                                          (#1 Angles get their information first hand in the presences of God. If God spoke to us face to face the way He does angels I believe our body would explode from the Glory and power of God! The bible says no man looks at God and lives!)                         Zechariah 1:8 During the night I had a vision—and there before me was a man riding a red horse! He was standing among the myrtle trees in a ravine. Behind him were red, brown and white horses. 9 I asked, “What are these, my lord?”The angel who was talking with me answered, “I will show you what they are.”                                                                                                                                                  (#2 Angels appear in our visions and teach us the meaning of the vision. Because the angels hear from God face to face they are able to explain to us exactly what God is showing us in the vision and dream while were having it. I heard you think to your self, “I never had a vision or dream.” Let me answer your thought by asking you to repent of your sin and ask Jesus to forgive you! After you do that ask God to give you visions and dreams to build your faith!)
Genesis 3:24 After he drove the man out, he placed on the east sidee of the Garden of Eden cherubim and a flaming sword flashing back and forth to guard the way to the tree of life.                                                                                                                                                  Numbers 22: 31 Then the Lord opened Balaam’s eyes, and he saw the angel of the Lord standing in the road with his sword drawn. So he bowed low and fell facedown. 32 The angel of the Lord asked him, “Why have you beaten your donkey these three times? I have come here to oppose you because your path is a reckless one before me. 33 The donkey saw me and turned away from me these three times. If she had not turned away, I would certainly have killed you by now, but I would have spared her.”
(#3 a. Angles stop us from going the wrong way. b. Angels can appear invisible or visible depending on what God wants.)
Acts 12:7 And, behold, the angel of the Lord came upon him, and a light shined in the prison: and he smote Peter on the side, and raised him up, saying, Arise up quickly. And his chains fell off from his hands.
(#4 Angels Can get us out of trouble When we are seeking the Lord Jesus with all our heart, mind and soul God will uses angels to bless us with supernatural freedom! No matter how many chains the enemy puts on us we can still pray to our Heavenly Father to send Angelic Hosts to loose us in the name of Jesus Christ!)
