About The Angel Andrew in “Touched By An Angel” August 28, 2010

1. Touched by an Angel

I had been looking at the TV series “Touched by an Angel” off and on for several years. I could not help noticing recently, that the Andrew, angel of death, featured quite often. In the series, he works collaboratively with angels such as Tess. You know that someone is going to die when Andrew appears on the scene.

However, is the angel of death an Angel of God or a fallen angel?

 

2. The truth about the angel of death as dramatized in the Holy Bible.

I heard God telling me that death is an enemy and I also know this to be true from the scriptures.  So I conducted a brief search on the topic and will now share my findings:

  • In the New Testament, thanatos is the Greek word for death (G 2288).
  • Adam brought death by sinning against God (1 Corinthians 15: 21)
  • Death is an enemy and will be destroyed (1  Corinthians 15: 26) 
  • Apostle Paul explained that death controlled humans from the time of Adam’s fall (Romans 5: 14 & 17).
  • Hell follows Death (Revelation 6: 8; Isaiah 14: 9)
  • Death is accompanied by tears, sorrow and crying (Revelation 21: 4)
  • Death and hell hold the unrighteous dead (Revelation 20: 13)
  • Jesus pleaded with “strong crying” to be delivered from its power, pains and agony  (Hebrews 5: 7; Acts 2: 23 & 24)
  • Death destroys the body (1 Corinthians 15: 54)
  • It has a sting called sin (1 Corinthians 15: 55)
  • Jesus came to deliver us from the fear of death  (Hebrews 2: 15)
  • Jesus abolished death and gave us life and immortality (2 Timothy 1: 10)
  • Death and hell will be cast into the lake of fire for ever (Revelation 20: 14)
  • The angel of death does not live in heaven (Revelation 21: 4)

 

3. Is Andrew a friend of God and His angels?

The angel of death is a fallen angel and enemy of God who will one day be cast into the Lake of Fire. 

In the television series “Touched by an Angel“, the angel Andrew is incorrectly portrayed as a friend of God and His angels. This is a serious error and departure  from the teachings of the Holy Bible.

Blessings.

Angel Of God Appears To Moses In The Burning Bush August 25, 2010

The Angel of God, Moses and the Burning Bush

The Angel of God appeared to Moses in a bush:

 1 Now Moses was tending the flock of Jethro his father-in-law, the priest of Midian, and he led the flock to the far side of the desert and came to Horeb, the mountain of God.

 2 There the angel of the LORD appeared to him in flames of fire from within a bush. Moses saw that though the bush was on fire it did not burn up.

 3 So Moses thought, “I will go over and see this strange sight—why the bush does not burn up.”

 4 When the LORD saw that he had gone over to look, God called to him from within the bush, “Moses! Moses!” And Moses said, “Here I am.”

 5 “Do not come any closer,” God said. “Take off your sandals, for the place where you are standing is holy ground.”

6 Then he said, “I am the God of your father, the God of Abraham, the God of Isaac and the God of Jacob.” At this, Moses hid his face, because he was afraid to look at God.

Guardian Angels’ Night-time Visit to a Zoo August 16, 2010

16 So the king gave the order, and Daniel was brought and thrown into a den of lions. The king consoled Daniel by saying, ‘your God who you continually serve will rescue you”  

  

  

 

17 Then a stone was brought and placed over the opening to the den. The king sealed it with his signet ring and with those of his nobles so that nothing could be changed with regard to Daniel.  

 

18 Then the king departed to his palace. But he spent the night without eating, and no diversions were brought to him. He was unable to sleep.  

  

 19 In the morning, at the earliest sign of daylight, the king got up and rushed to the lions  

20 As he approached the den, he called out to Daniel in a worried voice,   

21 Then Daniel spoke to the king, “oh king, live forever”  

22 My God sent his angel and closed the lions’ mouths so that they have not harmed me, because I was found to be innocent before him. Nor have I done any harm to you, O king.”  

  

   

   

The Angel Said That He Would Not Die In The Storm August 6, 2010

Introduction to the Storm

Apostle Paul was held in custody by the Romans after having been accused of preaching.  He was being taken to Rome on a ship when they ran into a terrible storm.

9 Since considerable time had passed and the voyage was now dangerous because the fast was already over, Paul advised them,

10 “Men, I can see the voyage is going to end in disaster and great loss not only of the cargo and the ship, but also of our lives.”

11 But the centurion was more convinced by the captain and the ship’s owner than by what Paul said.

12 Because the harbor was not suitable to spend the winter in, the majority decided to put out to sea from there. They hoped that somehow they could reach Phoenix, a harbor of Crete facing southwest and northwest, and spend the winter there.

13 When a gentle south wind sprang up, they thought they could carry out their purpose, so they weighed anchor and sailed close along the coast of Crete.

14 Not long after this, a hurricane-force wind called the northeaster blew down from the island.

15 When the ship was caught in it and could not head into the wind, we gave way to it and were driven along.

16 As we ran under the lee of a small island called Cauda, we were able with difficulty to get the ship’s boat under control.

17 After the crew had hoisted it aboard, they used supports to undergird the ship. Fearing they would run aground on the Syrtis, they lowered the sea anchor, thus letting themselves be driven along.

18 The next day, because we were violently battered by the storm, they began throwing the cargo overboard,

19 and on the third day they threw the ship’s gear overboard with their own hands.

20 When neither sun nor stars appeared for many days and a violent storm continued to batter us, we finally abandoned all hope of being saved.

21 Since many of them had no desire to eat, Paul stood up among them and said, “Men, you should have listened to me and not put out to sea from Crete, thus avoiding this damage and loss.

22 And now I advise you to keep up your courage, for there will be no loss of life among you, but only the ship will be lost.

23 For last night an angel of the God to whom I belong and whom I serve came to me

24 and said, ‘Do not be afraid, Paul! You must stand before Caesar, and God has graciously granted you the safety of all who are sailing with you.’

25 Therefore keep up your courage, men, for I have faith in God that it will be just as I have been told.

26 But we must run aground on some island.

All the words of the Lord came to pass and they were protected.  Keep the faith. You will live and not die.  There is still purpose in your life to be fulfilled.

An Angelic General of God’s Army Reveals Battle Tactics To General Joshua August 5, 2010

Joshua was an Israeli Army General who received battle tactics from the Commander of the Lord’s Army of Angels 

 

When Joshua was near Jericho, he looked up and saw a man standing in front of him holding a drawn sword. Joshua approached him and asked him, “Are you on our side or allied with our enemies?” 

 

  

He answered, “Truly I am the commander of the LORD’s army. Now I have arrived!” Joshua bowed down with his face to the ground and asked, “What does my master want to say to his servant?”  

  

The commander of the LORD’s army answered Joshua, “Remove your sandals from your feet, because the place where you stand is holy.” Joshua did so.

Angel Of The Lord Rescued Peter From Prison August 4, 2010

The Preacher called Peter had been imprisoned for preaching the gospel. An Angel of the Lord rescued him

1 About that time King Herod  laid hands on some from the church to harm them.

2 He had James, the brother of John, executed with a sword.

3 When he saw that this pleased the Jews,1 he proceeded to arrest Peter too. (This took place during the feast of Unleavened Bread.)

4 When he had seized him, he put him in prison, handing him over to four squads of soldiers to guard him. Herod planned to bring him out for public trial after the Passover.

5 So Peter was kept in prison, but those in the church were earnestly praying to God for him.

6 On that very night before Herod was going to bring him out for trial, Peter was sleeping between two soldiers, bound with two chains, while guards in front of the door were keeping watch over the prison.

7 Suddenly an angel of the Lord appeared, and a light shone in the prison cell. He struck Peter on the side and woke him up, saying, “Get up quickly!” And the chains fell off Peter’s wrists.

8 The angel said to him, “Fasten your belt and put on your sandals.” Peter did so. Then the angel said to him, “Put on your cloak and follow me.”

9 Peter went out and followed him; he did not realize that what was happening through the angel was real, but thought he was seeing a vision.

10 After they had passed the first and second guards, they came to the iron gate leading into the city. It opened for them by itself, and they went outside and walked down one narrow street, when at once the angel left him.

11 When Peter came to himself, he said, “Now I know for certain that the Lord has sent his angel and rescued me from the hand of Herod and from everything the Jewish people were expecting to happen.”

Blessings and have a great day!

Balaam, Mad Mad Fortuneteller, Talking Donkey And The Angel of The Lord August 4, 2010

Balaam the mad fortune teller

Balaam was a fortune teller who had been hired to curse the nation of Israel.  God appeared to him and told him that he did not have permission to do so. The following  turn of events took place as Balaam disobeyed in order to earn some cash:

22 Then God’s anger was kindled because he went, and the angel of the LORD stood in the road to oppose him. Now he was riding on his donkey and his two servants were with him.

23 And the donkey saw the angel of the LORD standing in the road with his sword drawn in his hand, so the donkey turned aside from the road and went into the field. But Balaam beat the donkey, to make her turn back to the road.

24 Then the angel of the LORD stood in a path among the vineyards, where there was a wall on either side.

25 And when the donkey saw the angel of the LORD, she pressed herself into the wall, and crushed Balaam’s foot against the wall. So he beat her again.

26 Then the angel of the LORD went farther, and stood in a narrow place, where there was no way to turn either to the right or to the left.

27 When the donkey saw the angel of the LORD, she crouched down under Balaam. Then Balaam was angry, and he beat his donkey with a staff.

28 Then the LORD opened the mouth of the donkey, and she said to Balaam, “What have I done to you that you have beaten me these three times?”

29 And Balaam said to the donkey, “You have made me look stupid; I wish there were a sword in my hand, for I would kill you right now.”

30 The donkey said to Balaam, “Am not I your donkey that you have ridden ever since I was yours until this day? Have I ever attempted to treat you this way?” And he said, “No.”

31 Then the LORD opened Balaam’s eyes, and he saw the angel of the LORD standing in the way with his sword drawn in his hand; so he bowed his head and threw himself down with his face to the ground.

32 The angel of the LORD said to him, “Why have you beaten your donkey these three times? Look, I came out to oppose you because what you are doing is perverse before me.

33 The donkey saw me and turned from me these three times. If she had not turned from me, I would have killed you but saved her alive.”

34 Balaam said to the angel of the LORD, “I have sinned, for I did not know that you stood against me in the road. So now, if it is evil in your sight, I will go back home.”

35 But the angel of the LORD said to Balaam, “Go with the men, but you may only speak the word that I will speak to you.” So Balaam went with the princes of Balak (Numbers 22).

Espionage, A Prophet & Angels of God. August 2, 2010

8 Now the king of Syria was at war with Israel. He consulted his advisers, who said, “Invade at such and such a place.”

9 But the prophet sent this message to the king of Israel, “Make sure you don’t pass through this place because Syria is invading there.”

10 So the king of Israel sent a message to the place the prophet had pointed out, warning it to be on its guard. This happened on several occasions.

11 This made the king of Syria upset. So he summoned his advisers and said to them, “One of us must be helping the king of Israel.”

12 One of his advisers said, “No, my master, O king. The prophet Elisha who lives in Israel keeps telling the king of Israel the things you say in your bedroom.”

13 The king ordered, “Go, find out where he is, so I can send some men to capture him.” The king was told, “He is in Dothan.”

14 So he sent horses and chariots there, along with a good-sized army. They arrived during the night and surrounded the city.

15 The prophet’s attendant got up early in the morning. When he went outside there was an army surrounding the city, along with horses and chariots. He said to Elisha, “Oh no, my master! What will we do?”

16 He replied, “Don’t be afraid, for our side outnumbers them.”

17 Then Elisha prayed, “O LORD, open his eyes so he can see.” The LORD opened the servant’s eyes and he saw that the hill was full of horses and chariots of fire all around Elisha  (2 Kings 6)
