Just Announced: Philippians Sermon Series

Summary: angels are just as real as you and I, and we’re going to see that from the source that ends all controversy about any subject and that of coarse is the Word of God.

Psalm 148:1-5, Angels 4-5-08

Today we’re going to talk about “ANGELS”, we don’t hear a lot about angels today but angels are just as real as you and I, and we’re going to see that from the source that ends all controversy about any subject and that of coarse is the Word of God. We’ll see that there are good angels as well as bad angels; the bad angels are unclean spirits, {these unclean spirits are fallen angels that were before deceived by Satan were good angels} we read about them in the Bible. There are Gods angels and there are Satans angels, today we refer to these fallen angels, as “demons”, although the word “demon” is not found in our K.J.V.

1) 1st of all let me say that God created the angels before the earth was made:

Psalm 148:1-5 1Praise ye the LORD. Praise ye the LORD from the heavens: praise him in the heights. 2Praise ye him, all his angels: praise ye him, all his hosts. 3Praise ye him, sun and moon: praise him, all ye stars of light. 4Praise him, ye heavens of heavens, and ye waters that be above the heavens. 5Let them praise the name of the LORD: for he commanded, and they were created.

NEHEM. 9:6 Thou, even thou, art LORD alone; thou hast made heaven, the heaven of heavens, with all their host, the earth, and all things that are therein, the seas, and all that is therein, and thou preservest them all; and the host of heaven worshippeth thee.

And Paul tells us in Col.1:16 For by him were all things created, that are in heaven, and that are in earth, visible and invisible, whether they be thrones, or dominions, or principalities, or powers: all things were created by him, and for him:

In Job 38:4-7, we find that God said to Job 4Where wast thou when I laid the foundations of the earth? declare, if thou hast understanding. 5Who hath laid the measures thereof, if thou knowest? or who hath stretched the line upon it? 6Whereupon are the foundations thereof fastened? or who laid the corner stone thereof; 7When the morning stars sang together, and all the sons of God shouted for joy? [An idem, which is an expression of the meaning.]

2) They are innumerable:

Revelation 5:11 And I beheld, and I heard the voice of many angels round about the throne and the beasts and the elders: and the number of them was ten thousand times ten thousand, and thousands of thousands, Hebrews 12:22, "But ye are come unto mount Sion, and unto the city of the living God, the heavenly Jerusalem, and to an innumerable company of angels,"

3) They are a higher order than Man:

Psalm 8:3-5 3When I consider thy heavens, the work of thy fingers, the moon and the stars, which thou hast ordained; 4What is man, that thou art mindful of him? and the son of man, that thou visitest him? 5For thou hast made him a little lower than the angels,

4) And angels never die as men die, because they are spirits. They are eternal: and let me say that mans spirit and soul will never die, these “bodies” will one day run its coarse, but we’re promised a new glorified body like Jesus at the rapture. ----The spirit is the part of man that “knows”. 1st cor.2: 11 For what man knoweth the things of a man, save the spirit of man which is in him?

The soul of man is the “seat of affection”, Jesus said in, Matt.26:38 Then saith he unto them, My soul is exceeding sorrowful,

And our bodies are the houses that the spirit and soul live in, one day our spirit and soul will leave our body because of death. Paul said in 2nd cor.5: 8 We are confident, I say, and willing rather to be absent from the body, and to be present with the Lord.

Again; the Angels are of a higher order than man in our natural state. Luke 20:34-36, And Jesus answering said unto them, The children of this world marry, and are given in marriage: 35But they which shall be accounted worthy to obtain that world, and the resurrection from the dead, neither marry, nor are given in marriage: 36Neither can they die any more: for they are equal unto the angels; and are the children of God, being the children of the resurrection.

Heb.1: 14 Are they not all ministering spirits, sent forth to minister for them who shall be heirs of salvation? And of coarse this is a reference to Gods angels, the good angels. Peter was in jail and the Lord sent an angel to get him out.

Acts 12: 6-10 And when Herod would have brought him forth, the same night Peter was sleeping between two soldiers, bound with two chains: and the keepers before the door kept the prison. 7And, 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. 8And the angel said unto him, Gird thyself, and bind on thy sandals. And so he did. And he* saith unto him, Cast thy garment about thee, and follow me. 9And he went out, and followed him; and wist not that it was true which was done by the angel; but thought he saw a vision. 10When they were past the first and the second ward, they came unto the iron gate that leadeth unto the city; which opened to them of his own accord: and they went out, and passed on through one street; and forthwith the angel departed from him.
