Angels Among Us
Sermon shared by Rick Kallstrom
Summary: I believe with all my heart that millions of angels are at Godís command and at our service. The hosts of Heaven stand at attention ready to do Godís will at any moment of any hour of any day.
Audience: General adults
The tow-truck driver drove through Fort Wayne and back into the neighborhood where Don lived. They thanked the driver for rescuing them and asked him to wait just a moment while they went inside to borrow the money to pay him.
They jumped out of the cab and ran into Donís house. Don handed them the money they had asked to borrow and they hurried back outside, grateful to pay the driver, but the tow truck was gone!
Don and his parents joined them outside, also wanting to thank the driver. The boyís car was there, but there was no sign of the tow truck or its driver, nor was there any sign of a tow truck having ever been down that road.
Neither Don nor his family had heard any sound when they had arrived, even though they had been listening for them.
There were no tire tracks anywhere on the snow-covered road. There was no tow bill, no tow truck driver, no farewell, and no taillights that could be seen off in the distance. There was no evidence anywhere that any vehicle had even been down that road!
The boys had no explanation other than that the tow truck driver was an angel sent by God to answer their prayer.
So I ask you church - do you believe in the existence of angels? Surely I do, because the Bible says that there ARE angels; and I believe the Bible to be the true Word of God, as written, from the first verse of Genesis to the last word of Revelation! At times in my own life, I have also sensed their presence around me.
Did you know that angels are mentioned either directly or indirectly nearly 300 times in the Old and New Testaments?
I believe with all my heart that millions of angels are at Godís command and at our service. The hosts of Heaven stand at attention ready to do Godís will at any moment of any hour of any day.
His angels are on call at all times. They donít take vacation days. They donít take sick days. They donít take off for holidays. They never age and they are always ready and available to carry out Godís plans!
These angels of God are here to help us and they are prepared for any emergency, and Satan has no firepower that can match the heavy artillery of God! Amen!
The Bible teaches us that God created angels. At one time no angels existed; there was nothing but the Holy Trinity, the Father, Son and Holy Spirit. The Apostle Paul writes in Colossians 1:16 ďFor by him were all things created, that are in Heaven, and that are in earth, visible and invisible.Ē
Angels are indeed among the invisible things made by God, for ďall things were created by Him, and for Him.Ē
The Bible tells us that angels have the ability to change their appearance and to travel instantly back and forth between the glory of Heaven above and the earth below.
Hebrews 1:14 calls angels ďministering spirits.Ē They do not possess physical bodies, although they may take on the form of physical bodies when God appoints them to special tasks. God has given them no ability to reproduce, and they neither marry nor are given in marriage. (Mark 12:25).
