I’ve been away for two days, but am back to continue speaking about the truth that angels speak with people in sign language. When they do so, we need to stop and pay attention, like Moses, who stopped to see why the bush was on fire but was not burning to cinders like trees in a forest fire. Today I would like to ask whether or not you are aware that angels guided Abraham as he journeyed through the land to which God had sent him. How do I know that? When he sent his business manager to find a wife for his son Isaac, he told him:
“The LORD God of heaven, which took me from my father’s house, and from the land of my kindred, and which spake unto me, and that sware unto me, saying, Unto thy seed will I give this land; he shall send his angel before thee, and thou shalt take a wife unto my son from thence” (Gen 24: 8).
Abraham told the manager that the Lord would send his angel ahead to guide him. He spoke this from experience. Although scriptures do not directly record the events in which angels of the Lord guided Abraham, we learnt from Jacob’s experience how they may have done so. When Jacob ran away from home, he did so because his brother Esau plotted to kill him due to the theft of the birthright, which cost Esau his inheritance as firstborn. That night, Jacob had a dream in which he saw “a ladder set up on the earth, and the top of it reached to heaven: and behold the angels of God ascending and descending on it”. (Gen 28: 12). This dream meant that Jacob had direct access to heaven and that angels were with him continually. That must have been very comforting to Jacob under the circumstances. Furthermore, the Lord stood above the ladder and prophesied to him about his plan to give the land to him and his offspring.
Many years later, Jacob returned home at the Lord’s instructions, but did so under duress because he was afraid that Esau would try to get revenge for the theft of the birthright. Genesis 32: 1 says that the angel of God met him as he returned. Now this was even more comforting. The presence of the angels meant that he had no reason to fear Esau because he was under divine protection. As Jacob reached the end of his life, he gathered his sons in order to impart a prophetic blessing to them. As he blessed Joseph’s sons, he gave praise to God for the presence of the angels of the Lord in his life, referring to the Lord as “the Angel which redeemed me from all evil” (Gen 48:16).
I used Jacob’s example to show that Abraham must have experienced the same kind of angelic guidance during his journeys. We know that Abraham saw the Lord God live and direct in visits (Gen 18: 1,2)and that the angel of the Lord spoke to him from heaven as he was about to kill Isaac (Gen 22). Did angels meet Abraham at strategic places and times in order to show him which way to go? We know that Jesus (Melchizedek) met him and helped him to fight the war against the kings who had captured his nephew Lot. Every member of Abraham’s family benefited from this special angelic protection and guidance, including Hagar and Ishmael. Abraham’s manager inferred that angels had helped him to the right wife for Isaac when he told Laban what Abraham had said on the inception of the journey:
“… The LORD, before whom I walk, will send his angel with thee, and prosper thy way; and thou shalt take a wife for my son of my kindred, and of my father’s house” (Gen 24: 40).
Angels are always present to help the seed of Abraham. The question is whether or not we are aware of their presence or whether our eyes are blind to them like Gehazi in 2 Kings 6: 15-17. Blessings until next time!
