Also,.Genesis 16:9-11 "And the angel of the LORD said unto her, Return to your mistress and submit yourself under her hands. And the angel of the LORD said unto her, I will multiply your seed exceedingly, that it shall not be numbered for multitude. And the angel of the LORD said unto her, Behold, you are with child and shalt bear a son and shall call his name Ishmael, because the LORD has heard your affliction." Genesis 22:15,16 "And the angel of the LORD called unto Abraham out of heaven the second time and said, By myself have I sworn, says the LORD, for because you have done this thing and have not withheld your son, your only son.".Angels often appear as if they were the Creator and deliver encouraging messages directly as if it was the Creator himself speaking:.Isaiah 63:9 "In all their affliction he was afflicted and the angel of his presence saved them. In his love and in his pity he redeemed them and he bare them and carried them all the days of old."

Angels often speak as though it was God:.Hebrews 2:2 "For if the word spoken by angels was stedfast..." Acts 7:38 "This is he, that was in the church in the wilderness with the angel which spake to him in the mount Sina.(speaking of Moses talking with the Creator:.Exodus 24:12).and with our fathers, who received the lively oracles to give unto us." Acts 7:53 "Who have received the law by the disposition.(given through angels).of angels..." Galatians 3:19 "...and it.(speaking here of the Old Testament law).was ordained by angels in the hand of a mediator.".Zechariah 1:7,9.

Angels often act as though it was God:.Numbers 20:16 "And when we cried unto the LORD, he heard our voice and sent an angel and has brought us forth out of Egypt...".Exodus 3:2-4; 14:13-31.

Acts 7:30-33.(the Old Testament account of this, just below at Exodus 3:2-6):."And when forty years were expired, there appeared to him in the wilderness of mount Sina an angel of the Lord in a flame of fire in a bush. When Moses saw it he wondered at the sight. And as he drew near to behold it, the voice of the Lord came unto him, Saying, I am the God of your fathers, the God of Abraham and the God of Isaac and the God of Jacob. Then Moses trembled and durst.(past tense and a past participle of dare).not behold. Then said the Lord to him, Put off your shoes from your feet. For the place where you stand is holy ground."

Here, the angel that was in front of a man named Cornelius was called the Lord:.Acts 10:3,4 "He saw in a vision evidently about the ninth hour of the day an angel of God coming in to him and saying unto him, Cornelius. And when he looked on him, he was afraid and said, What is it, Lord? And he said unto him, Your prayers and your alms are come up for a memorial before God."

Angels act on instructions from those above them:.Acts 12:6-11 "And when Herod would have brought him forth, the same night Peter was sleeping between two soldiers, bound with two chains and the keepers before the door kept the prison. And, behold, the angel of the Lord came upon him and a light shined in the prison and he smote Peter on the side and raised him up, saying, Arise up quickly. And his chains fell off from his hands. And the angel said unto him, Gird yourself and bind on your sandals. And so he did. And he said unto him, Cast your garment about you and follow me. And he went out and followed him and wist not that it was true which was done by the angel, but thought he saw a vision. When they were past the first and the second ward, they came unto the iron gate that leads unto the city, which opened to them of his own accord and they went out and passed on through one street and forthwith the angel departed from him. And when Peter was come to himself, he said, Now I know of a surety, that the Lord has sent his angel and has delivered me out of the hand of Herod and from all the expectation of the people of the Jews."

Another one:.Exodus 3:2-6 "And the angel of the LORD appeared unto him in a flame of fire out of the midst of a bush. And he looked and behold, the bush burned with fire and the bush was not consumed. And Moses said, I will now turn aside and see this great sight why the bush is not burnt. And when the LORD saw that he turned aside to see, God called unto him out of the midst of the bush.(note here it says it was the Creator God after just telling us that it was an angel, so, it's either that the Creator appears as an angel or that an angel is instructed to appear with a message as if it were the Creator giving the message; interesting!).and said Moses, Moses. And he said Here am I. And he said Draw not nigh hither. Put off thy shoes from off thy feet for the place whereon you stand is holy ground. Moreover he said I am the God of your father, the God of Abraham, the God of Isaac and the God of Jacob. And Moses hid his face, for he was afraid to look upon God." Joshua 5:13-15 "And it came to pass, when Joshua was by Jericho, that he lifted up his eyes and looked and behold, there stood a man over against him with his sword drawn in his hand. And Joshua went unto him and said unto him, Art thou for us or for our adversaries? And he said Nay, but as captain of the host of the LORD am I now come. And Joshua fell on his face to the earth and did worship and said unto him, What saith my lord unto his servant? And the captain of the LORD'S host said unto Joshua, Loose thy shoe from off your foot, for the place whereon you stand is holy. And Joshua did so."

Genesis 18:20-22.

Hebrews 1:14 "Are they not all ministering spirits, sent forth to minister for them who shall be.(original for 'shall be' is 'to take care' and 'to be about'; that is, the angels assist us who care about salvation and as thus, those who do are heirs).heirs of salvation?"

Hebrews 2:2.(talking of the now.defunct.Mosaic Law)."For if the word spoken by angels was stedfast and every transgression and disobedience received a just recompence of reward..."

Angels carry out what the Creator determines:.Acts 7:53 "Who have received the law by the disposition of angels....."

The occurrences in these scriptures indicate that the One here involved was He who was Emmanuel, whose name was changed in the 17th century A.D.:.John 1:1-3 "In the beginning was the Word and the Word was with God and the Word was God. The same was in the beginning with God. All things were made by him and without him was not any thing made that was made." 1Timothy 3:16 "...God was manifest in the flesh..." 2Corinthians 5:19 "To wit, that God was in Christ, reconciling the world unto himself, not imputing their trespasses unto them and has committed unto us the word of reconciliation." 1Corinthians 10:4,9 "And did all drink the same spiritual drink, for they drank of that spiritual Rock that followed them. And that Rock was Christ...Neither let us tempt Christ as some of them also tempted and were destroyed of serpents.(Numbers 21:6)." 2Corinthians 12:19 "...we speak before God in Christ, but we do all things, dearly beloved, for your edifying." Philippians 3:14 "I press toward the mark for the prize of the high calling of God in Christ Emmanuel." 1Thessalonians 5:18 "...for this is the will of God in Christ Emmanuel concerning you." Genesis 17:3 "And Abram fell on his face and God talked with him....." Genesis 32:30 "And Jacob called the name of the place Peniel, for I have seen God face to face and my life is preserved."

None of us, even after death, have seen the Father; but what about Moses who talked with the Creator face to face?.Exodus 33:11,20-23; Deuteronomy 34:10. And what about Jacob whose name was changed to Israel after seeing God face to face? Genesis 32:30.

The only one who has seen the Creator is He who became human and came to Earth from the Father and went back to Him, after fulfilling the purpose the Father wanted Him to come to Earth for:.Exodus 33:20-23; 34:7; John 8:42 "Emmanuel said unto them, If God were your Father, you would love me, for I proceeded forth and came of God. Neither came I of myself but he sent me." John 17:5 "And now O Father, glorify me with your own self with the glory which I had with you before the world was."

Humans are made a little lower than the angels:.Hebrews 2:7 "You made him a little lower than the angels....." Psalms 8:4-6 "What is man, that you are mindful of him?...For you have made him a little lower than the angels and have crowned him with glory and honour...You made him to have dominion over the works of your hands. You have put all things under his feet."

This is for the purpose of eventually being high above them in stature:.Hebrews 2:5,7,8 "For unto the angels has he not put in subjection the world to come, whereof we speak.....you crowned him with glory and honour and did set him over the works of your hands...You have put all things in subjection under his feet. For in that he put all in subjection under him, he left nothing that is not put under him. But now we see not yet all things put under him." 1Corinthians 6:3 "Know you not that we shall judge angels? how much more things that pertain to this life?".Angels are happy about this:.Luke 15:10 "Likewise, I say unto you, there is joy in the presence of the angels of God over one sinner that repents.(repent means to decide to change to be better)."

The realm of Christ.(what does 'Christ' mean?).is better than the angelic realm:.Hebrews 1:4,6 "Being made so much better than the angels as he has by inheritance obtained a more excellent name than they...And again, when he brings in the firstbegotten into the world.(Emmanuel), he said, And let all the angels of God worship.(worship means to give attention to; to note what is going on).him."

Angels appeared to Emmanuel to provide help.Matthew 4:11 "Then the devil leaves him and behold, angels came and ministered unto him..They appear today providing help.

Every so often Miracles And Other Wonders and other titles of TV programs are shown regarding modern day encounters with these administrators of help and comfort that were there for Emmanuel's protection:.Matthew 4:6 "And said unto him, If thou be the Son of God, cast yourself down, for it is written, He shall give his angels charge concerning you and in their hands they shall bear you up, lest at any time you dash your foot against a stone." Matthew 26:53,54 "Think you that I cannot now pray to my Father and he shall presently give me more than twelve legions.(in Roman times, about 6000 foot troops per legion).of angels? But how then shall the scriptures be fulfilled, that thus it must be?"
   Touched By An Angel is also an inspiring TV program.
