    The Work of Angels 

    The work of angels is such an interesting topic to me. There is so much that can be said but only so much can be known. From Genesis to Revelation they are there, and we only know about it because we’ve been told.

    What do they do? To put it simply, they do the will of God – at least the angels of God do such work. But I guess when you think about it, whether or not they are of God doesn’t much change the fact that his work will be accomplished. For even some of the angels thought that there was freedom outside of the will of God only to find out that the true freedom was only found by working in it and not against it (Matthew 25:41).

    Much to the chagrin of the Sadducees, angels are found all through the New Testament. Want to know where? It’s easier for me to tell you where they are not – Ephesians, Philippians, 2 Timothy, Titus, Philemon and James. Double check that if you get the chance. And the Old Testament is over flowing with them too. While the New Testament uses the word angel a whopping 177 times, the Old Testament rings in at an amazing 109 times! Wait a second; the New Testament actually uses the word angel more than the Old Testament? According to what I found it does. But again, you can double-check me on that too. Even if you take out the references from the book of Revelation, the New Testament almost matches the Old Testament word for word at 105.

    From proclaiming various announcements, to doling out several replete judgments of God, to ministering to a physically burdened Jesus, angels are ever busy in their spiritual work in the New Testament. There has to be a lesson in there for the people of God, right? Not necessarily repeating their specific works across the board, but rather repeating their work ethic across the board in what we’ve been called to do.

    One day I’m going to do a class on angels. The only reason I haven’t done such already is because it’s so daunting to me. There is so much to say how can I say it all. How can we ever say it all though! The problem that I have seen with some people’s work on angels is that, like many other spiritually themed writings and teachings, they say too much. They say more than what has been revealed by the word of God. Angels speak by the word of God, at least the angels of God, so why would someone want to speak about them without following the same guide line?

    Anyways, does the work of angels capture your interest? What’s your “favorite” work that’s captured in the Bible? Have you ever thought about meeting them?

    At the end of the day, the work of angels is a topic that’s worth our study, because despite the fact that there’s only so much said about them, there’s been enough said for us to get the point.

    And suddenly there was with the angel a multitude of the heavenly host praising God and saying: “Glory to God in the highest, And on earth peace, goodwill toward men!”” (Luke 2:13-14)
