ANGELS: Who They Are and How They Help - What the Bible Reveals By Dr. David Jeremiah

Publisher:  Multnomah Books
Publication Date:  2009
Pages:  240
Genre: Religion/Theology
Rating-5 Stars⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

About the Book:  The Remarkable Truth about the Agents of HeavenPeople have long been fascinated by stories of angel sightings, yet many contemporary beliefs about angels are based on misconception and myth rather than solide, biblical truth.

As he's done so brilliantly for decades, respected Bible teacher Dr. David Jeremiah uses Scripture to unveil the remarkable truth about these agents of heaven and their role in our world and our lives.

What are angels? What is their role in God's plan? Are they present? Do they appear? Do they give us personal insight about our work and our worship?

In this broad and thorough survey of Scripture, Dr. Jeremiah clearly and simply separates fact from fiction as it relates to angels. His enlightening findings are supported with illustrations and insights from prominent teachers, such as Billy Graham, Corrie ten Boom, C. S. Lewis, and more.

Dr. Jeremiah's down-to-earth style guides readers around the hype about angels and directly into the "substance of things unseen!"

Wanda's Thoughts: 
Over the years much has been written about angels. Unfortunately so much of it is rather far-fetched and just not reliable. I found this book to be very informative, but most importantly Scripture is the foundation used throughout. An interesting aspect explained is that we should not assume angels would serve or help non-Christians. The Bible describes angels as “ministering spirits sent to serve those who will inherit salvation.”

Dr. Jeremiah certainly provides interesting insights on angels, and at the same time this well written book will inspire you. The Bible contains more than 300 direct references to angels, and you’ll soon realize there is more to angels than you could ever imagine.

Topics I found interesting –

• We should never worship angels.
• Angels are warriors for God.
• God sends his angels to deliver and protect his people.
• Angels are great comforters.
• Angels are messengers.
• Gender of angels is always masculine.
• Angels do not earn their wings.
• Angels are created beings – God made angels.
• Angels are innumerable, far more that we could count.
• Angels will be with us at the time of our death – escorting us to our final destination.
