Angels are created beings and they have (or had in the distant past) free-will….. some of them chose to follow satan in his rebellion against GOD (2 Peter 2:4, Matthew 25:41).

They are spirits but can appear to men in various ways (sometimes they appear as “not completely human…. probably they glow or have non-human powers” (Luke 2:15) and sometimes they appear completely human (Hebrews 13:2)).

The Angel of the LORD… was not an “ordinary” angel….. but an appearance of Jesus Christ in “angel-like” (glowing with superhuman abilities)  form in the Old Testament …. in Judges 13:18 , He said His name was “Wonderful”… which is one of the names ascribed to Jesus in Isaiah 9:6… other appearances of Jesus in “superhuman” form (Daniel 3:25, Judges 2:1 – 4, Judges 6:11 – 24, Judges 13:6 – 23)…

In our human state, angels are much more powerful than we are (Psalms 8:5, Matthew 13:39, 2 Peter 2:11, Revelation 7:2, Revelation 9:15, Revelation 12:7- 9, 2 Samuel 24:16 – 17)

But apparently, our ultimate destiny is higher than theirs (Hebrews 2:7 – 9, 1 Corinthians 6:3)

Angels are assigned to churches, nations and individuals (Revelation 3:14, Daniel 10:13, Matthew 18:10)…. in the case of nations, satan assigns his evil angels (evil angels are called demons) to influence them… in the case of Israel, GOD sent Michael, an archangel (very powerful) to protect and guide them… the above Scripture gives us an insight into the angelic war that is being fought constantly.

The angels (and demons) can observe everything that we do…. (1 Corinthians 4:9, Ephesians 3:10)

Despite their great power and authority, God uses them to look after us Christians, “the heirs of salvation and children of God”…. ensuring our physical safety and well-being…. and this care begins in infancy and extends throughout our lives (1 Kings 19:5, Psalms 34:7, Psalms 91:11, Daniel 6:22, Mathew 2:13, Matthew 4:11, Matthew 18:10, Hebrews 1:14)

We are forbidden to worship them (Revelation 22:8 -9)

Prayer for today:

Loving Heavenly Father, thank you for caring so much about us that you rescued us from evil  (when the fallen angels have no such option).

Thank you for the gift of your Son, to be our saviour, lord, friend and guide…. grant that we may overcome the world, the flesh and the devil through your Holy Spirit… and be pleasing in your sight… both now and forevermore. Amen.

WARNING: In our “technological” age…. it is thought that the ancient humans were visited by “aliens” posessing superior technology that they did not understand….  therefore good and evil are reduced to impersonal concepts or “forces”….  the aliens are “gods” only because they have the technology and they “manipulated” ancient humans easily…. this FAIRY TALE (concocted out of human pride and arrogance started with satan) makes a mockery of both the Bible record, the Way of Salvation and even the Holiness of GOD….. the program “Ancient Aliens” that airs on the History Channel asks lots of questions which nobody can answer and the whole purpose of it is to cast DOUBT on the Word of God….. and cause people to QUESTION their FAITH in GOD and His revealed plan for mankind.


Many people believe they are only a sinner if they commit sins but this is actually incorrect….  Romans 3:23 “For ALL have sinned and come short of the glory of God”

the truth is everybody (without exception) is a sinner and because of this they may commit a variety of “sins” at any time… past, present or future.

Even if you could be successful at “improving yourself” and “overcoming your sinning” to the point where you “sin no more”  (which is seemingly impossible “ideal”)…. you would STILL be a sinner, because that is who you are, you were BORN that way… you are a sinner by birth….  Romans 5:12 “Wherefore, as by one man sin entered into the world, and death by sin, and so death passed upon all men… ”  ….. and this idea offends people…. “what you mean my “good” children are all sinners ?”…. EXACTLY.

So what does GOD say about this ?….. Jesus said you must be BORN AGAIN…. (John 3:3)  and Nicodemus did not have the slightest idea what He meant.

But everyone who has been “born again” knows what He means… they manifest the evidence of this in their persons.

they have TWO personalities to deal with…  the OLD MAN (original sinning nature) must daily be “put to death” so that the NEW MAN can grow…   and your life change under the direction of the Holy Spirit….  Romans 6:11 “…. reckon ye also yourselves to be dead indeed unto sin, but alive unto God through Jesus Christ, our Lord”… “reckon” means “count on the fact, RELY upon the fact”….. remember the verse that says “as a man thinketh so is he” (Proverbs 23:7)… believe it and it will eventually be true in your experience.

The big difference between a “born again” believer and a “good” heathen is that the believer has the power of God working in them to overcome sin… they are not trying to do  it on their own (impossible to please God that way)….. and IF they will only yield to Him daily they will realize it in their experience.

Unfortunately, the “good” heathen is damned along with the rest of sinners that he despises…. and the world just cant deal with that…. so they “invent” all kinds of “religions” to make them feel good….  they keep telling themselves that they will be OK in the hereafter because they are better than so-an-so…. or because they do this or that ritual (baptism, confirmation, communion or whatever).

Prayer for today:

Loving Heavenly Father, thank you for saving my soul and giving me your Holy Spirit…. may He have control of my life as He enables me to put Your wishes above my own…. in Jesus name. Amen.

Test of the “born again” believer…. you have a yearning inside you for fellowship with your Father and you actually enjoy reading the Bible… it is doubtful you would continue reading my posts every day if you were not “born again”…. my posts are directed by God for YOUR benefit, to bring you into closer fellowship with Him.


The Word of God teaches us, when we read it with the right attitude.

Psalm 119:11-12  “Thy word have I hidden in mine heart, that I might not sin against thee. Blessed art thou, O Lord; teach me thy statutes.”

Galatians 6:6 “Let him that is taught in the word share with him that teacheth in all good things”

How often have I heard the unbelievers say the Bible was written by man, for the purpose of controlling the people (presumably they think that their “enlightened” view enables them to escape such “control” but, in reality, they are just as much a “puppet” as anybody else).

“All scripture is given by inspiration of God, and is profitable for doctrine, for reproof, for correction, for instruction in righteousness,”  2 Timothy 3:16

It is true that men wrote the Bible because it was not written by aliens and “dropped” on our planet……

“for prophecy never came by the will of man, but holy men of God spoke as they were moved by the Holy Spirit” 2 Peter 1:21

and it is also true that careful study of the Bible will lead to a shift in values, priorities and this book can control  a persons behaviour.

Ephesians 5:26 “that He might sanctify and cleanse her with the washing of water by the word”

Hebrews 4:12 “for the word of God is living and powerful, and sharper than any two-edged sword, piercing even to the division of soul and spirit, and of joints and marrow, and is a discerner of the thoughts and intents of the heart”

The heathen desire to escape the control of the Bible can be summed up in one word, rebellion…. and it is the sin of satan himself.

“Forever, O Lord, thy word is settled in heaven” Psalm 119:89

“The grass withers, the flower fades, But the word of our God stands forever” Isaiah 40:8

The illusion is… humans think they can be free of all restraints…. there is no such thing…. if we are ignoring the Bible then we are serving satan’s purposes and he will manipulate us easily (and without us even realizing it).

Jesus made it perfectly clear…. there is no middle road between good and evil…  we cannot be “neutral”…. you  conciously pick a side and if you will not choose a side then (because of your inherrent sin nature) you will, by default, go  the evil road…. only two roads… the broad path that leads to destruction and the narrow path that leads to life everlasting  (filled with joy in the presence of GOD)…. every moment of every day you are on the road… and although you can choose to change roads, the older you get (and the farther you have gone down the road) the harder it becomes to change to the other road.

Both Matthew 6:24 and Luke 16:18 confirm that:

“No one can serve two masters;  for either he will hate the one and love the other, or else he will be loyal to the one and despise the other. You cannot serve God and mammon.”

As children grow… they will encounter CHOICES…. they will have numerous chances to choose good or to choose evil….. satan is actively going after children….  their built-in sinful nature makes it easy for him to attract them…. who will teach them otherwise ????

Only Christian adults… are the only ones standing in the gap for the little ones… and it is so important to reach them before they are snared and roped into a life of sin.

There is a popular notion that since God is love… things cant be that bad and most people will be saved if they are “good”….. after all, why would God harm thousands of “good” people. ?

Hear the words of Jesus, “Enter in at the narrow gate; for wide is the gate, and broad is the way, that leadeth to DESTRUCTION, and MANY there be who go in that way; Because narrow is the gate and hard is the way, which leadeth unto life, and FEW there be that find it” Matthew 7:13-14

Because we are human, the destruction of large masses of humanity troubles us…. but God is willing to do away with large masses of human kind for the sake of His ELECT, the few who honour and worship Him and tremble at His Word….. the few who have freely chosen to make Him supreme in their lives while overcoming the world, the flesh and the devil.

“And if the righteous scarcely be saved, where shall the ungodly and the sinner appear?” 1 Peter 4:18

Today is a fresh opportunity to seek His will and guidance for your life.

“but exhort one another daily, while it is called “Today”, lest any of you be hardened through the deceitfulness of sin.” Hebrews 3:13
