Last week we had a glimpse into heaven – the eternal dwelling place of God
  • We discovered it’s not of this creation
  • We discovered it is vast, bigger than our whole universe

Angels are REAL Over 300 direct references to angels in the Bible

  • They are stronger than man, but not omnipotent (Psalm 103:20; 2 Peter 2:11).
  • They are greater than man in knowledge, but not omniscient (2 Samuel 14:20; Matthew 24:36).
  • They are more noble than man, but not omnipresent (Daniel 9:21-23, 10:10-14).
angels were created
Angels were created
  • Praise Him, all His angels; Praise Him, all His hosts…Let them praise the name of the Lord, For He commanded and they were created. (Psalm 148:2,5)
  • For by [God's beloved Son] all things were created, both in the heavens and on earth, visible and invisible, whether thrones or dominions or rulers or authorities — all things have been created through Him and for Him. (Colossians 1:16)
slide5

We do not know exactly when God created the angels, however we know it was before the creation of the world

  • They watched God create everything and praised Him as He did it!!

Job 38:4 "Where were you when I laid the foundation of the earth? Tell Me, if you have understanding,

  • Job 38:5 Who set its measurements? Since you know. Or who stretched the line on it?
  • Job 38:6 "On what were its bases sunk? Or who laid its cornerstone,
  • Job 38:7 When the morning stars sang together And all the sons of God shouted for joy?
septuagint
Septuagint
  • Job 38:7 When the stars were made, all My angels praised Me with a loud voice.
  • The Septuagint is what Jesus and the writers of the New Testament quoted.

So…
  • Angels were created at some point in eternity past and praised God when He created the heavens (1&2) and earth.

How many angels are there?
  • Rev 5:11 Then I looked, and I heard the voice of many angels around the throne and the living creatures and the elders; and the number of them was myriads of myriads, and thousands of thousands,
  • Rev 5:12 saying with a loud voice, "Worthy is the Lamb that was slain to receive power and riches and wisdom and might and honor and glory and blessing."
myriads

what do angels look like
What do angels look like?
  • Women with wings? Google
  • Babies with wings? Bing, Yahoo
  • The Bible always refers to them as male.
  • It appears there are no female angels!
  • Thus, they do not marry or procreate.
  • Mar 12:25 "For when they (Christians) rise from the dead, they neither marry nor are given in marriage, but are like angels in heaven.
most of them have a form like us
Most of them have a form like us…
  • Heb 13:2 Do not neglect to show hospitality to strangers, for by this some have entertained angels without knowing it.
  • Two weeks ago we talked about God the Father and the Son and their physical appearance…
we established that those who teach the father has no physicality based it on one verse
We established that those who teach the Father has no physicality based it on one verse:

Joh 4:24 "God is spirit, and those who worship Him must worship in spirit and truth."

They say since God(the Father) is Spirit He has no form…

When we are born again, we are spirit also!

slide14

Joh 3:6 "That which is born of the flesh is flesh, and that which is born of the Spirit is spirit.7 "Do not be amazed that I said to you, 'You must be born again.‘ 8 "The wind blows where it wishes and you hear the sound of it, but do not know where it comes from and where it is going; so is everyone who is born of the Spirit."

so are angels
So are angels!

Heb 1:13 But to which of the angels has He ever said, "SIT AT MY RIGHT HAND, UNTIL I MAKE YOUR ENEMIES A FOOTSTOOL FOR YOUR FEET"?

Heb 1:14 Are they not all ministering spirits, sent out to render service for the sake of those who will inherit salvation?

Yet they have bodies and appearance! As do we! In the image of God!

slide16

Gen 1:26 Then God said, "Let Us make man in Our image, according to Our likeness; and let them rule over the fish of the sea and over the birds of the sky and over the cattle and over all the earth, and over every creeping thing that creeps on the earth.“ 27 God created man in His own image, in the image of God He created him; male and female He created them.

slide17

Gen 5:1 This is the book of the generations of Adam. When God created man, he made him in the likeness of God.

Gen 5:3 When Adam had lived 130 years, he fathered a son in his own likeness, after his image, and named him Seth.

slide18

Gen 5:3 When Adam had lived 130 years, he fathered a son in his own likeness, after his image, and named him Seth.

Gen 1:26 Then God said, "Let Us make man in Our image, according to Our likeness;

Same words!!!!

slide19

Image – “A masculine noun meaning an image, a likeness, a statue, a model, a drawing, a shadow” – physical likeness

Likeness – “A feminine noun meaning resemblance; concrete model, shape”

The Hebrew is very clear here – we are made in the physical likeness of The Father and the Son!

angels are the likeness of god as well
Angels are the likeness of God as well…

Dan 10:16 And behold, one in the likeness of the children of man touched my lips. Then I opened my mouth and spoke. I said to him who stood before me, "O my lord, by reason of the vision pains have come upon me, and I retain no strength.

slide21
So…
  • We are created in the literal image and likeness of God
  • Angels are in the likeness of men (not made in the likeness of men – they look like men, and men look like God)
  • Thus some Angels are also in the likeness of God as well! (some have wings, and other characteristics not in God’s likeness)

  • Mat 18:10 "See that you do not despise one of these little ones, for I say to you that their angels in heaven continually see the face of My Father who is in heaven.
by the way
By the way…
  • When we pray, we have access to the very throne of God!
  • Zec 3:7 "Thus says the LORD of hosts, 'If you will walk in My ways and if you will perform My service, then you will also govern My house and also have charge of My courts, and I will grant you free access among these who are standing here.
slide26

Eph 2:18 for through Him we both have our access in one Spirit to the Father.

  • Eph 3:11 This was in accordance with the eternal purpose which He carried out in Christ Jesus our Lord,
  • Eph 3:12 in whom we have boldness and confident access through faith in Him.
slide27

Heb 4:14 Therefore, since we have a great high priest who has passed through the heavens, Jesus the Son of God, let us hold fast our confession.

  • Heb 4:15 For we do not have a high priest who cannot sympathize with our weaknesses, but One who has been tempted in all things as we are, yet without sin.
  • Heb 4:16 Therefore let us draw near with confidence to the throne of grace, so that we may receive mercy and find grace to help in time of need.

2Ki 6:16 So he answered, "Do not fear, for those who are with us are more than those who are with them."

  • 2Ki 6:17 Then Elisha prayed and said, "O LORD, I pray, open his eyes that he may see." And the LORD opened the servant's eyes and he saw; and behold, the mountain was full of horses and chariots of fire all around Elisha.
slide33

Psa 68:17 The chariots of God are myriads, thousands upon thousands; The Lord is among them as at Sinai, in holiness.

slide34

Zep 3:17 "The LORD your God is in your midst, A victorious warrior. He will exult over you with joy, He will be quiet in His love, He will rejoice over you with shouts of joy & singing.

slide35

When you die, your guardian angel escorts you to heaven:

  • Caring for believers at the moment of death - In the story of Lazarus and the rich man, we read that angels carried the spirit of Lazarus to “Abraham's bosom” when he died (Luke 16:22).
slide36

The Scriptures witness that angels have all three attributes of elements of personality.

  • Intelligence – As evidenced by their desire to learn of our great salvation in Christ (1Peter 1:12) and the ability to communicate intelligence in speech (Matthew 28:5).
  • Angels have emotions - Scripture bears this out. Struck with God’s power and wisdom, they respond to His wondrous works in creation with joy (Job 38:7)
slide38

Angels have wills. - Angels have self-determination; that is, they can choose from various courses of action and seek to carry one through. God appeals to their wills by commanding them to worship Christ, His Son (Hebrews 1:6). But in the case of some, their wills opposed the will of God. We will see that when we look at Lucifer, also called Satan

why were they created
Why were they created?
  • The worship of God (Isa. 6:3; Rev. 4:8),
  • As messengers of God (Dan. 9:22; Luke 1:11, 26; 2:9; Rev. 1:1),
  • As soldiers in spiritual combat (Dan. 10:13f; Rev. 12:7),
  • Observers of God’s creation and men
  • And now (after creation)As ministers to God’s people (Heb. 1:14)
observers
Observers…
  • Observed God’s creation and rejoiced (Ps. 38:7)
  • They rejoice when one sinner repents (Luke 15:10)
  • Observe God’s manifold wisdom in the unfolding of His redemptive plan (1 Pet. 1:12; Eph. 3:10). verb, parakuptw, “to bend over,” conveys the idea of bending over to see something more clearly or to look intently (see also Jam. 1:24)
slide41

Also spectators of God’s redemptive work (Job 38:7; Luke 15:10; 1 Cor. 4:9; 11:10; Eph. 3:10; Tim. 3:16; 1 Pet. 1:12)

Where do they live?
