You need to read your Bible. Hello Mr. I have read my Bible sir, and found you wanting in your reasoning. You use one example, which is not the normative, to imply all Christians can have their life extended, when dozens of other Scriptures show you are wrong. Please be kind too sir. I pray you are not this way around others. You could hurt your witness for Christ with your attitude. Thanks immensely. Amazing post! I know God works everything for the good just a grieving mother hoping for insight. Thank you I loved your post amazing! You know, I believe that God loves our children more than we do and to have them with Him means that they are there waiting for you.
Where is this in the bible and can it be extrapolated to mean all children who die go to heaven? Thank you for your articles they are clear and based on the truth I also come from a brethren background. Hello Mable.
Michael Heiser: Taking Scripture on Its Own Terms
A young child could be told to repent and believe but they must first know enough about what they believe. That is all I mean. Thank you Mable. Suffer means allow the little children to come unto me and refuse them not, for such of these is belongs the Kingdom of Heaven. Your child is spirit now with our Father in Heaven and you will see the little one again. The good that comes from God comes from above and last here, now and forever. Praise our living God and His son Jesus he Christ who made a place for me there.
Bless You. I find it very difficult to try and explain to some one, that guardian angels are real.

Yes, I know, there is sin in the world, and usually, that is the reasoning behind most ministers answers. Thank you Mr. God alone saves. Ask them since evil exists, are humans responsible? Are those who ask you about angels Christians or not? The answer you give depends much on this. Thank you Aimee. All children go to heaven, before the age of accountability. What does it mean, the Bible clearly states, Do not take the lord your Gods name in vain, Is God his name or title or both.
I read that my gaurdian angel based on my birthrate of Dec 21 is Nithael. How is this possible if he is a fallen Angel? Where did you read that Kaitlin? I know it must not be from the Bible. This dream has always been with me and I often wonder the meaning. Was my angel wounded in a battle did it somehow regain its Wing the fact that one way was lost did that mean that somehow something negative did happened to me.
By the way, most angels do not have wings and their wings cannot be broken. They are not physical in nature but spirit and spirit cannot break bones because they have no bones. Hello Mrs. I would talk with your pastor about this. There are good angels and fallen angels, and angels rarely appear to us, so what that means?
You cannot put any real meaning in this unless you know it was from God or not. Hello, found this article trying to find answers to what happened to my 2 year old. He woke up having what appeared to be a febrile siezure one night earlier this year. But his symptoms were not those associated with febrile siezures.

The next morning after it happened, I took him in is room to change him. He would occasionally bring it up using those same words. We have moved out of that house and to a new state. He scared me. I was screaming. As believers, and knowing this world is a spiritual battle, we can only conclude that what he experienced was the devil or a fallen spirit angel with his guardian angel along side him, keeping him safe. The other two show up in the apocryphal First Book of Enoch , which includes a fanciful account of the actions of these four beings.
Those who report modern day angel teachings are actually channeling information from demons. These same beings told Mrs. Albright to stress two main teachings: first, that God accepts all religions, and second, Reincarnation. Albright, Angel Walk , p. God has revealed to us everything we need for life and godliness 2 Peter , so any hidden knowledge that spirit beings try to impart is by nature occultic and demonic.
The message of the ugly angels is that we need to recognize that we are one with the divine, we are divine In this way we finally experience true oneness. They were created before man as a different kind. They are not within us. Nor do good people, especially children, become angels when they die.
We remain human beings—not angels, and certainly not God. We need to remember, and share with others, three truths about angels: 1. The ministry of holy angels will never contradict the Bible. The actions of holy angels will always be consistent with the character of Christ.
1. God created angels
A genuine encounter with a holy angel will glorify God, not the angel. Holy angels never draw attention to themselves. They typically do their work and disappear.

As pointed out in the introduction to this study, everywhere we find angels mentioned in the Bible, the reference to angels is incidental to some other issue. They are not the primary subject of the passage. When they are mentioned, it is always in order to inform us further about God, what He does, and how He does it. This very fact should teach us that not only are angels not the focus, but they should certainly not be worshipped. In two places in the book of Revelation, John was so awed by the revelation he had received from God through an angel, a very glorious creature, that he bowed down to worship the angel.
Revelation And I fell at his feet to worship him. For the testimony of Jesus is the spirit of prophecy. Revelation And I, John, am the one who heard and saw these things. And when I heard and saw, I fell down to worship at the feet of the angel who showed me these things. Remember, the church at Colossae had been invaded by false teachers who were teaching a false humility and the worship of angels, claiming special mystic insights by way of visions in connection with their worship of angels Co.
This was demonic because it was usurping the preeminent place and sufficiency of Christ as Savior and Lord.
The claim was, He is not enough for salvation and spirituality. What you need is to worship angels, etc. Closely associated with the worship of angels, but in a more subtle way, is all the angel gimmickry going on in our culture today. Sometimes this is not just a matter of collecting and enjoying angel figurines much as someone would collect and enjoy figurines and pictures of eagles.
The gullibility of people today is due in part to pendulum swings of society. Society had swung from the gross mystical speculations of the middle ages to the rationalism of the late s and early s. Now due in part to the failure of rationalism, the vacuum that naturally occurs in the minds of people, and the rise of demonism and the occult in these last days, the pendulum has swung back to mysticism seen so prominently in the New Age movement, the occult, and in the cults.
So belief in Satan, demons and angels is more and more common place, not because people are believing the Bible, but because of the rise of their spiritual emptiness. Angels have become an easy substitute, a handy compromise to the reality of the Living God as He is revealed in Scripture. For me it is like an inner voice that tells me what to do and what not to do, where to go and where not to go. Why not? God seems so distant and austere.
Angels seem so friendly. I have never seen an angel or had an experience where I was sure an angel was involved, but I do believe many reports are true. Afterward, his spirits picked up and he quickly began to improve physically. He never saw this nurse again, though he asked about her and watched for her. He told his doctor about this, who happened to be a Christian, and he asked my friend if he had considered that this might have been an angel. Was this angel? In addition, we need to avoid the critical spirit that questions and belittles the claims of others, especially those who do not know the Scripture.
Laughing at or belittling their claims will only close the door to opportunities to witness and point them to the truth of the Gospel and the Bible. Even though we may not be able to validate that it was an angel, we can and should certainly praise God for the aid or encouragement experienced, as with my friend in the hospital. The book of Colossians is an excellent commentary on this. Be patient—I guarantee it will happen. It will be followed by an in depth study on the doctrine of angelology, the study of angels as it is developed in the Bible.
S 2 Millard J. Probe is an excellent Christian resource and I highly recommend it. These indicate the entire universe, both material and immaterial. This not only indicates a highly organized dominion in the spirit world of angels, but shows that Paul was writing to refute an incipient form of Gnosticism that promoted the worship of angels in place of the worship of Christ cf.
In this, Paul demonstrates superiority and rightful place of worship as supreme cf. Further, other passages clearly teach us that there are often angelic or demonic forces behind the reign of human kings or kindgoms cf. Walvoord Roy B. Zuck, Editors, Victor Books, , , electronic media.

Introduction Theologians have often viewed angels as a very difficult subject. A Simple Definition Angels are spiritual beings created by God to serve Him, though created higher than man. The Nature of Angels Angels are created beings The fact of their creation is brought out in Psalm Angels are spirit creatures 1 Angels are spirit beings.
The Ministry of Good Angels The good and loyal angels are the mighty servants of God who constantly serve him always doing His will. Angels Provide As angels were sent by God to provide sustenance for the Lord at the end of his forty days in the wilderness Matt. It is no wonder then that we find them as vital agents in pouring out the awful judgments of the Tribulation as described in Revelation and even in doing battle with Satan and his evil angels to restrict them from any access to heaven, confining them to the realm of this earth and its immediate atmosphere in the middle of the Tribulation Rev.
The Deception of Evil, Fallen Angels Just as people usually do not think of the punitive ministry of angels, so here is another area that is completely ignored by the popular ideas of angels, but that it is ignored is not without reason. What do you think? God , the Father, sent His only Son to satisfy that judgment for those who believe in Him. Jesus , the creator and eternal Son of God, who lived a sinless life, loves us so much that He died for our sins, taking the punishment that we deserve, was buried , and rose from the dead according to the Bible. If you truly believe and trust this in your heart, receiving Jesus alone as your Savior, declaring, " Jesus is Lord ," you will be saved from judgment and spend eternity with God in heaven.
What is your response? Or Philosophically? Is the Bible True? Who is God? Is Jesus God?
