I was having a conversation with some
children about God and superheroes when Tobias asked a question. An
imaginative, curious 5-year-old, he asked anyone listening: “Does God
have a sidekick like Hercules does?” His wiser, older brother, age 7,
quickly responded: “Yes, He has thousands of them—they’re His angels.”
are a popular topic of discussion, and people believe a number of myths
about them. For instance, some people pray to angels, thinking they are
on the same level as God Himself. And some believe that people become
angels when they die. But here’s what the Bible, our authority, teaches:
• God created angels (Col. 1:15-17).
Angels worship God (Neh. 9:6), and are known by these terms: archangels
(Jude 1:9), cherubim (2 Kings 19:15), and seraphim (Isa. 6:1-3).
• They minister to God’s people (Heb. 1:13-14) by guarding and protecting them (Ps. 91:9-12).
• They are given special assignments by God (Matt. 1:20; Luke 1:26).
• God’s angels rejoice when we repent of sin and turn to Christ for salvation (Luke 15:7,10).
Only God deserves our worship. So let’s join the angels in singing His praises! — Anne Cetas
All hail the power of Jesus’ name!
Let angels prostrate fall;
Bring forth the royal diadem,
And crown Him Lord of all. —Perronet
Angels are God’s special helpers.
"But the prince of the kingdom of Persia withstood me
one and twenty days: but, lo, Michael, one of the chief princes, came
to help me; and I remained there with the kings of Persia. " (Daniel 10:13, KJV)
is the first Biblical mention of Michael. Here he is referred to as a
"chief prince" or one who is first in rank or power. He was (and is) a
very powerful and influential spirit being.
