There is a lot of confusion about angels and the subject contains greater context than a simple blog post. But, I’d like to start by clarifying some truth about these incredible, heavenly beings that are given to all believers to protect us and help us carry out our assignments given by God. Their job is to fight for us. Who do they fight? The fallen angels that serve Satan that try to abort our assignments and take us out early. So, let’s look at some key points about angels. I will write more on this topic because it’s critical that we know that we have protection and help all the time. Let’s begin with a few verses from the book of Hebrews, Chapter 1:3-14:
The Son Is Higher than Angels
3-6After he finished the sacrifice for sins, the Son took his honored place high in the heavens right alongside God, far higher than any angel in rank and rule. Did God ever say to an angel, “You’re my Son; today I celebrate you” or “I’m his Father, he’s my Son”? When he presents his honored Son to the world, he says, “All angels must worship him.” 7Regarding angels he says,
The messengers are winds,
the servants are tongues of fire.
8-9But he says to the Son,
You’re God, and on the throne for good;
your rule makes everything right.
You love it when things are right;
you hate it when things are wrong.
That is why God, your God,
poured fragrant oil on your head,
Marking you out as king,
far above your dear companions.
10-12And again to the Son,
You, Master, started it all, laid earth’s foundations,
then crafted the stars in the sky.
Earth and sky will wear out, but not you;
they become threadbare like an old coat;
You’ll fold them up like a worn-out cloak,
and lay them away on the shelf.
But you’ll stay the same, year after year;
you’ll never fade, you’ll never wear out.
13And did he ever say anything like this to an angel?
Sit alongside me here on my throne
Until I make your enemies a stool for your feet.
14Isn’t it obvious that all angels are sent to help out with those lined up to receive salvation?
