17 Things You Must Know About Angels in This Hour

by | Jul 12, 2017 | Blogs, The Plumb Line

When I first got saved, my eyes were opened to the reality of angels. I was living in Ozark—a small town in Alabama that was essentially my wilderness place—and diligently looking for a church to call my home when I found a Pentecostal congregation that was radical in its faith.

The first time I walked through the doors, I saw a display of feathers. Being newly saved, I had no idea what in the world this signified. One of the members excitedly explained these were feathers that had fallen into the sanctuary in past services.

Of course, I was skeptical—until feathers started falling into the sanctuary right before my eyes. After seeing so much New Age angel philosophy creep into the church, I shied away from angels. But in the last couple of years I’ve resumed my study and discovered angels are on assignment to help us more than we realize. You can read my prophetic word about angels here.

  1. Angels are spirit beings. “Are they not all ministering spirits sent out to minister to those who will inherit salvation?” (Heb.1:14).
  1. Angels are messengers. The root word for “angel” in the Hebrew is “messenger.” We see angels speaking to Joseph in dreams, angels speaking to both Abraham and Lot, angels speaking to Peter in prison and more. Angels still can and do bring messages to people in dreams and visions, from the spirit realm or face to face.
  1. Angels are immortal. Luke 20:36 tells us after we die, we can’t die again because we “are like the angels.” The late Lester Sumrall once said, “You’ll never read the obituary of an angel.” When our body dies, 1 Corinthians 15:53 tells us we trade mortality for immortality. We get a heavenly body. We are then immortal like the angels.
  1. Angels outrank man. Psalm 8:5 tells us, “For You have made him a little lower than the angels, and crowned him with glory and honor.” 2 Peter 2:11 tells us angels are greater in power and might than mere men.
  1. Angels have an intellect and are wise. 2 Samuel 14:20 speaks of the “wisdom of angels.” They have the capability to think. But angels are not omniscient. They do not know when the Lord will return (Matt 24:36).
  1. Angels are holy. Mark 8:38 speaks of the “holy angels.”
  1. Angels are innumerable, according to Hebrews 12:22. There are so many you can’t count them. And if God needs more angels, He can create more.
  1. Angels have supernatural strength. 2 Thessalonians 1:7 says they are “mighty.” Revelation 18:1 tells us they have great power. Psalm 103:20 says they excel in strength.
  1. Angels are invisible unless God reveals them.
  1. Angels have emotions. They are joyful about God’s will. Luke 15:10 tells us “Likewise, I tell you, there is joy in the presence of the angels of God over one sinner who repents.” You can grieve angels. Angels are grieved by what grieves God.
  1. Angels have a free will. Isaiah 14:13-14 tells us, “For you have said in your heart, ‘I will ascend into heaven, I will exalt my throne above the stars of God; I will sit also on the mount of the congregation, in the recesses of the north; I will ascend above the heights of the clouds, I will be like the Most High.'”
  1. Angels are always obedient to God’s Word. Psalm 103:20 says, “Bless the Lord, you His angels, who are mighty, and do His commands, and obey the voice of His word.”
  1. Angels don’t need to rest. Revelation 4:8 says, “The four living creatures had six wings each, and they were covered with eyes all around. All day and night, without ceasing, they were saying: ”Holy, holy, holy, Lord God Almighty,’ who was, and is, and is to come.'”
  1. Angels travel with lightning speed. Revelation 8 and 9 show angels moving rapidly through heaven. They are beings of light that move at light speed, which is 186,000 miles per second.
  1. Angels are God’s warriors. The archangel Michael went to war with the prince of Persia in Daniel 10:13, and Revelation 12:7 tells us of Michael and other warring angels going to battle against the dragon and his angels.
  1. Angels can appear in human form. Abraham had lunch with angels (Gen. 18).
  1. Angels are servants to God’s children. Consider Hebrews 1:14 in various translations:

 “Are not the angels all ministering spirits (servants) sent out in the service [of God for the assistance] of those who are to inherit salvation?” (AMPC)

“Are they not all ministering spirits, sent out for service on account of those who shall inherit salvation?” (DARBY)

 “Isn’t it obvious that all angels are sent to help out with those lined up to receive salvation?” (MSG)

 “Therefore, angels are only servants—spirits sent to care for people who will inherit salvation” (NLT).
