For centuries men, women, and children have been fascinated by stories about angel sightings. Yet many contemporary beliefs are based on misconceptions and myth rather than solid biblical truth. Join Dr. David Jeremiah as he goes straight to God's Word to deliver fascinating insights about God's majestic messengers. Learn how angels help you draw closer than ever to the God you serve and let the insights sharpen your sensitivity towards spiritual realities.
“The first principle: We must not create or reshape angels according to our own fancy.” (Page 50)
“In the Scriptures — from Genesis to Revelation — the existence of angels is simply assumed. The Bible contains more than three hundred direct references to them.” (Page 29)
“So as I think about why some people see angels and others don’t, I wonder if God doesn’t withhold the sight of angels from most of us so we’ll understand where our trust should truly be and where we really should focus our attention. Maybe we don’t need all the sensations and excitement that so many people clamor for. Wonderful as the presence of an angel might be, God has given us something better. In fact he’s given us the greatest gift of all: his presence through his Holy Spirit, and in his Word.” (Pages 23–24)
“His conclusion reflects the teaching of Hebrews 1:14, a verse we keep coming back to: Angels are ‘ministering spirits sent to serve those who will inherit salvation.’ Angels are here for us.” (Page 73)
“And yet for all that the Scriptures tell us about angels, the serious Bible student soon gets the feeling God has been guarded in what he’s revealed. Everything Scripture says concerning angels is in connection to something else as the main theme. There are no pages or passages whose central purpose is to spell out a doctrine of angels. So we can’t uncover as much about them as we might like.” (Page 22)
