A Bible Study on Angels Wings

 

 


Greetings Little Flock, 

I pray that you are fairing well in the aftermath of the ice storm and the angels of protection are hovering above you at this time. It is sunny but cold out side but what a delightful feeling and knowledge of the simple fact that God in His love for you and me has given to each of us, His mighty angel servants not to be worshipped, as they are very careful to tell us, but reverenced and respected as God helping hands and under His watchful eye… Before we read Francie’s letter which stemmed this study I would like to share this story concerning a combat soldier and angels…


*****************************

Patrick is here in the study working on building my cabinet and as I mentioned about this study on angels he told me of one experience he had during his tour in Iraq concerning angels. He told how he and 12 of his buddies were saved from a certain death from an explosion using 7 bombs (IED Explosive device) linked together to go off simultaneously as their semi drove past... As it turned out six were knocked out and several were blown out of the truck but the driver who was closest to the explosion was never knocked out. Patrick said that he had been blown out of the truck and woke up a good ways from the truck laying in the ditch with another soldier laying on top of him; which, (the truck) by the way hadn't turned over. That would have probably killed those left in the truck... Patrick brought in some pictures and I thought I'd put them below the story for you...
 

While the front end of the truck was blown up and the master sergeant bomb expert of over 20 years said he had never seen anything like it before:

The bombs looked like this:    @----@----@----@----@----@----@        and was the
length of the semi truck :       ==Representing the Truck====      which  carried the
twelve soldiers. The amazing and miraculous part is that only the first two bombs went off. The master sergeant said they were correctly wired and should have blown but it looked like the detonation cord had been cut with a pair of scissors between the second and third bomb as they had exploded because it left the detonation cord which was curled up from the blast...  Had all 7 bombs gone off, everyone would have been killed.

Patrick, who is a born again Christian, said he knew in his heart that angels were watching over them and had cut the cord... As a result of Patrick's witnessing of this instance and of other same type instances of intervention from God which saved the lives of his platoon that all of the men became saved. Patrick said before each mission he would kneel before the men of his platoon and lead them in prayer for safety... Patrick said that many platoons in his company and other companies in this war were Christians and had prayer before each mission. I will ask right here that you all remember our men and women who are in harms way and in the armed services protecting our rights to be free and safe at home.

Patrick is on the left with one of his buddies, Ernie, and that is their truck in the background. These are some of the bombs they found and the black line across the top is C-4... They are going to blow up those bombs which were going to be used along side the road on the American troops...

Here is Patrick with some more munitions which are going to be destroyed...

 

And this is one of the bombs of mass destruction which the media claimed weren't even in Iraq and the Americans never found nor could find... Behind Patrick is another crate with more of these best kept secrets form the folks back home...   

 

And now for Francis’ letter and our Angels Wings Bible study…

Dear Sir: I read and agree with you that angels are of male gender, until I got to the Quote by Francis Thompson, and now my question is.... Where are the KJV Bible verse or verses that say angels have wings ??  I anxiously wait for your reply. Love-n-Prayers, Francie

============================


Here are a few verses concerning angels and wings of angels. Be sure to read the last set of verses…

 

Dan 9:21,23

21 Yea, whiles I was speaking in prayer, even the man Gabriel, whom I had seen in the vision at the beginning, being caused to fly swiftly, touched me about the time of the evening oblation.

22 And he informed me, and talked with me, and said, O Daniel, I am now come forth to give thee skill and understanding.

23 At the beginning of thy supplications the commandment came forth, and I am come to shew thee; for thou art greatly beloved: therefore understand the matter, and consider the vision. (KJV)

 

===========================

Isa 6:2

2 Above it stood the seraphims: each one had six wings; with twain he covered his face, and with twain he covered his feet, and with twain he did fly. (KJV)

 

Commentary Outline of Isaiah 6

Read Isaiah 6:1-8

Verse 1-8 - In this figurative vision, the temple is thrown open to view, even to the most holy place. The prophet, standing outside the temple, sees the Divine Presence seated on the mercy-seat, raised over the ark of the covenant, between the cherubim and seraphim, and the Divine glory filled the whole temple. See God upon his throne. This vision is explained, John 12:41,. that Isaiah now saw Christ's glory, and spake of Him, which is a full proof that our Saviour is God. In Christ Jesus, God is seated on a throne of grace; and through him the way into the holiest is laid open. See God's temple, his church on earth, filled with his glory. His train, the skirts of his robes, filled the temple, the whole world, for it is all God's temple. And yet he dwells in every contrite heart. See the blessed attendants by whom his government is served. Above the throne stood the holy angels, called seraphim, which means "burners;" they burn in love to God, and zeal for his glory against sin. The seraphim showing their faces veiled, declares that they are ready to yield obedience to all God's commands, though they do not understand the secret reasons of his counsels, government, or promises. All vain-glory, ambition, ignorance, and pride, would be done away by one view of Christ in his glory.

 

This awful vision of the Divine Majesty overwhelmed the prophet with a sense of his own vileness. We are undone if there is not a Mediator between us and this holy God. A glimpse of heavenly glory is enough to convince us that all our righteousnesses are as filthy rags. Nor is there a man that would dare to speak to the Lord, if he saw the justice, holiness, and majesty of God, without discerning his glorious mercy and grace in Jesus Christ.

The live coal may denote the assurance given to the prophet, of pardon, and acceptance in his work, through the atonement of Christ. Nothing is powerful to cleanse and comfort the soul, but what is taken from Christ's satisfaction and intercession. The taking away sin is necessary to our speaking with confidence and comfort, either to God in prayer, or from God in preaching; and those shall have their sin taken away who complain of it as a burden, and see themselves in danger of being undone by it. It is great comfort to those whom God sends, that they go for God, and may therefore speak in his name, assured that he will bear them out.

 

============================

 

John 1:51

51 And he saith unto him, Verily, verily, I say unto you, Hereafter ye shall see heaven open, and the angels of God ascending and descending upon the Son of man. (KJV)

 

Rev 7:1-3

1 And after these things I saw four angels standing on the four corners of the earth, holding the four winds of the earth, that the wind should not blow on the earth, nor on the sea, nor on any tree.

2 And I saw another angel ascending from the east, having the seal of the living God: and he cried with a loud voice to the four angels, to whom it was given to hurt the earth and the sea,

3 Saying, Hurt not the earth, neither the sea, nor the trees, till we have sealed the servants of our God in their foreheads. (KJV)

 

Luke 16:22

22 And it came to pass, that the beggar died, and was carried by the angels into Abraham's bosom: the rich man also died, and was buried; (KJV)

 

All angels do not display wings or else they would not be able to remain unawares but noticed and recognized as angels...

 

Heb 13:2

2 Be not forgetful to entertain strangers: for thereby some have entertained angels unawares. (KJV)

 

=================

But this set of verses should be the clincher as for the wings of angels as God told Moses exactly how to build the Ark of the Covenant...

 

Exodus 25: 1 - 8, 22

 

1 And the LORD spake unto Moses, saying,

8 And let them make me a sanctuary; that I may dwell among them.

9 According to all that I show thee, after the pattern of the tabernacle, and the pattern of all the instruments thereof, even so shall ye make it.

10 And they shall make an ark of shittim wood: two cubits and a half shall be the length thereof, and a cubit and a half the breadth thereof, and a cubit and a half the height thereof.

11 And thou shalt overlay it with pure gold, within and without shalt thou overlay it, and shalt make upon it a crown of gold round about.

12 And thou shalt cast four rings of gold for it, and put them in the four corners thereof; and two rings shall be in the one side of it, and two rings in the other side of it.

13 And thou shalt make staves of shittim wood, and overlay them with gold.

14 And thou shalt put the staves into the rings by the sides of the ark, that the ark may be borne with them.

15 The staves shall be in the rings of the ark: they shall not be taken from it.

16 And thou shalt put into the ark the testimony which I shall give thee.

17 And thou shalt make a mercy seat of pure gold: two cubits and a half shall be the length thereof, and a cubit and a half the breadth thereof.

18 And thou shalt make two cherubim of gold, of beaten work shalt thou make them, in the two ends of the mercy seat.

19 And make one cherub on the one end, and the other cherub on the other end: even of the mercy seat shall ye make the cherubim on the two ends thereof.

20 And the cherubim shall stretch forth their wings on high, covering the mercy seat with their wings, and their faces shall look one to another; toward the mercy seat shall the faces of the cherubim be.

21 And thou shalt put the mercy seat above upon the ark; and in the ark thou shalt put the testimony that I shall give thee.

22 And there I will meet with thee, and I will commune with thee from above the mercy seat, from between the two cherubim which are upon the ark of the testimony, of all things which I will give thee in commandment unto the children of Israel.

 

The ark was a chest, overlaid with gold, in which the two tables of the law were to be kept. These tables are called the testimony; God in them testified his will. This law was a testimony to the Israelites, to direct them in their duty, and would be a testimony against them, if they transgressed.
 

This ark was placed in the holy of holies; the blood of the sacrifices was sprinkled, and the incense burned, before it, by the high priest; and above it appeared the visible glory, which was the symbol of the Divine presence.

 

This was a type of Christ in his sinless nature, which saw no corruption, in personal union with his Divine nature, atoning for our sins against it, by his death. The cherubim of gold looked one towards another, and both looked downward toward the ark. It denotes the angels' attendance on the Redeemer, their readiness to do his will, their presence in the assemblies of saints, and their desire to look into the mysteries of the gospel. It was covered with a covering of gold, called the mercy-seat. God is said to dwell, or sit between the cherubim, on the mercy-seat. There he would give his law, and hear supplicants, as a prince on his throne.

 

I hope that this study has helped clarify the realm of angelic beings. They come in many forms and shapes and mighty in their abilities but they all are of praise and service to God.

 

Until we meet again:

May the angels of God watch over you and in protection keep you safe.

Bro. Jim
