UNDERSTANDING THE MINISTRY OF ANGELS – Dr Chris Okafor


PSALMS 91:1-12

No honest mind can read the Bible carefully without coming to the conclusion that great hosts of angels actually exist. We have the same evidence for the existence of angels, as we have for the birth and life and death and resurrection of Jesus Christ. The Bible tells us also about the ministry of angels. It is true that the word “angel” is sometimes used figuratively in the Bible.
You may not feel the presence of angels; you may never have seen an angel; you may not hear them speak; nevertheless they exist and they exert their influence all the same. The Bible says that angels held the flaming sword that guarded the tree of life in Eden; Angels took the family of Lot to safety and smote the wicked men of Sodom with blindness; Angels drove the chariots of fire through the sky and picked up the prophet Elijah and took him to glory; Angels walked into prisons and released the apostles of the early church; Angels will blow their trumpets on that day when Jesus returns to translate the Church into His own glorious presence. The redeemed of God will enjoy the society of angels forever in Heaven. Certainly each Christian should want to know all that he can about these great and glorious beings, the angels of God.
