Angels Watching Over Me!

Angels Watching Over Me! PART 2
C. Hayden 4-27-20
This Thursday, May 14th, we continued our Bible study of angels as described and portrayed in the Holy Scriptures.  With David Jeremiah as our audio teacher and Tina Inman leading the group, we restart one of the more interesting studies of these benevolent servants of God.  I, for one, have been learning so much regarding the celestial nature of and the terrestrial works regarding these mysterious beings.  Last months blog gave Old Testament and New Testament examples of the angelic presence in the affairs of mankind.  This presence of heavenly creatures are all under the direction of our Father who created them and uses them as ministering spirits for all those who are to be heirs of the salvation of God (Hebrews 1:14). 
As Scripture assures us of their mission to minister on behalf of God’s people, we can be confident knowing that the army that fights for us is far greater than any army that fights against us (2 Kings 6:16).  Not only are there more for us, but each one packs a far stronger punch.
In 2 Kings 19, The Assyrian King Sennacherib threatened Hezekiah, the King of Judah, demanding his surrender to the nation of Assyria.  But the Prophet Isaiah reassured the Judean King, informing him of Sennacherib’s demise.  The 35th verse of this chapter reveals that just one angel destroyed Sennacherib’s Assyrian military numbering 185,000 men in just one night.  Let me say that again.  An army of 185,000 Assyrian fighting men perished at the hands of only one of God’s angels in just one night!  When we couple the strength of just one angelic being with the fact that there are twice as many angels as there are demons, not to mention the great love of God for us, our faith increases knowing that we have nothing to fear from men or devils.  As the Apostle Paul poses the rhetorical question in Romans 8:31, “…If God be for us, who can be against?”
Be blessed and be encouraged even more!!
