Angels: Existing in Numbers

No Comment Yet

The Bible repeatedly teaches the existence of angels. It is assumed as a matter of fact that angels exist. For the atheist and critic who demand proof, they will never be satisfied. Atheists turn to themselves and their sense of reason and logic for answers. God’s word as source will never be good enough for some.

Hebrews 1:6-7 And again, when God brings His firstborn into the world, He says: “Let all God’s angels worship Him.” Of the angels He says, “He makes His angels winds, and His ministers a flame of fire.”

Angels have been observed from the beginning of the earth. Angels were noted to protect the garden after the fall of man.

Genesis 3:24 So He drove the man out; and at the east of the garden of Eden He stationed the cherubim and the flaming sword which turned every direction to guard the way to the tree of life.

Jesus knew angels existed. He created them. Christ explained that He had angels at His disposal if He called on the Father. The context of the comments to a Roman soldier had to be overwhelming. A Roman legion was estimated to be about 5,000 soldiers. Jesus was claiming He could have about 60,000 angels at His word with destructive and formidable Heavenly force. Jesus knew He could avoid arrest and ultimately death. The Godhead was in absolute control of the situation in the Garden of Gethsemane. Yet, He submitted Himself to arrest and ultimately death on a cross.

Matthew 26:53 Do you think that I cannot appeal to my Father, and He will at once send Me more than twelve legions of angels?

The number of angels is innumerable. In the Greek, the word is μυριάς/murias. We get the English word “myriad” from the Greek term. It literally means 10,000. In the verse below, the word is plural. So there are 10,000’s upon 10,000’s. The number of angels cannot be counted.

Hebrews 12:22 But you have come to Mount Zion and to the city of the living God, the heavenly Jerusalem, and to myriads of angels…

Elisha communicates the same idea to a follower in 2 Kings. When the veil is pulled back, the number is overwhelming.

2 Kings 6:16-17 He (Elisha) said, “Do not be afraid, for those who are with us are more than those who are with them.” Then Elisha prayed and said, “O LORD, please open his eyes that he may see.” So the LORD opened the eyes of the young man, and he saw, and behold, the mountain was full of horses and chariots of fire all around Elisha.

Angels will ultimately be dispatched by Christ to the Earth to clean house in preparation for the kingdom.

Matthew 13:41 The Son of Man will send forth His angels, and they will gather out of His kingdom all stumbling blocks, and those who commit lawlessness…

About Paul Lehr

Paul Lehr is a Speech Pathologist and home health provider. The majority of his work focuses on swallowing disorders in neurologically impaired patients. He has been a business owner for the past 20+ years. Paul earned his BS in Speech Pathology and Audiology from Oklahoma State University. His MA was completed in Speech Pathology at Oklahoma State University. When Paul’s son was born prematurely in 2003, there was lots of support from family and friends. Keeping up with phone calls was too much. So he provided e-mails with updates on health and well-being. In time, his son was healthy and came home. The e-mails stopped but Paul was encouraged to keep writing. Three years later, Paul was asked to assist in writing a Sunday school curriculum. The lessons were well received by the local body and on the church website. Again, he was encouraged to keep writing. Next, Paul taught a Sunday School class for junior high and high school students. He would share notes with others from the class he was teaching. In 2010, a young man at a local church encouraged Paul to start a blog. The website focuses on topical studies such as creation, God’s Appointed Holidays and Feasts, the Gospel of Jesus Christ, end times prophecy, ancient Hebrew cultural customs, the Prophet Isaiah, and various topical studies. Three years later, Paul’s 10 year old son told me, “Dad, you need to do updates on how the news is tied to the Bible.” The “Trend Update” was born. In the spring of 2016, a friend and fellow Boy Scout father encouraged Paul to start a YouTube channel. His friend thought it was a natural fit considering the content and subscribers from the website. God’s prophetic words have reached millions in over 190 countries. Isaiah 55:11 So will My word be which goes forth from My mouth; it will not return to Me empty, without accomplishing what I desire, and without succeeding in the matter for which I sent it. That same Boy Scout father would later introduce Paul to the movies of Trey Smith and the God in a Nutshell Project… Guest speak and presenter duties have focused on the topics of the Gospel of Jesus Christ in God’s Appointed Spring Feasts, Mystery Babylon, the antichrist, Ezekiel 38-39, and current events related to Bible prophecy. At this time, Paul would like to encourage each individual to learn about who God is. Because one way or another, we are all eternal. The issue is our destiny.
