“Surely the Lord is in the place; and I knew it not” Genesis 28:16
The Bible is full of angel ministry stories. Story after story these angels come to bind earth to heaven; these space visitors, keeping our little fallen world in touch with the kingdom of heaven. Angels appeared to a forsaken maiden by the hidden well in the desert; under the oaks of Mamre; and in the palatial home of Lot, to save that backslidden believer from a fiery death. They appeared in the mount of the law to Moses. On Mount Moriah an angel held back the hand of Abraham from the slaughter of his son. ON the plain of bethel they appeared to Jacob, ascending and descending a mystical ladder connecting earth with heaven, and ministering to the needs of all mankind.
These mighty beings who can appear and disappear at will, who excel in strength, who do God’s commandments, “hearkening unto the voice of his word” (Psalm 103:20) – what teachers they will be in that land of eternal wisdom! What knowledge they will share with us who find a home there by the shining river of life! How wonderful it will be to meet our guardian angel and have him recount to us the mercies which God has extended to us as we travel the path of His providences.
This is such a wonderful future, such a blessed experience, and such a holy companionship, that we invite you into the service of Christ.
