DID YOU KNOW THAT ANGELS LEARN FROM US
By: Gary L. Rodgers
In thinking about the Holy Angels of GOD I have come to realize that there are things that they learn from us.
- The Holy angels of GOD don’t know what it is like to carry a heavy burden of sin.
Angels are ministering spirits and learn things about us and from us. They surround us day and night and watch every move that we make. GOD’s Holy angels have never known this burden that we as humans carry. Those angels (unholy angels) that have lost their former estate when they followed after Satan are held bound in darkness and held in reserve for the day when they will be judged and cast into the lake of fire, but holy angels do not feel the burden that we carry.
- They don’t know what it’s like to kneel before the cross of Christ and feel the burden of sin being lifted from one’s soul.
The burden of sin is a weight that only man can know. The Holy angels of GOD have no idea what it is like to feel the weight of such guilt. The fear and shame of this guilt is something that they have never known.
- They don’t know what it feels like to grow in faith and experience the blessed feeling of seeing a loved one come to Christ.
Growing in faith is a sacred pleasure that we get through reading and becoming obedient to the Word of GOD. It’s a freedom of choice on our part that gives us a joy and peace beyond all human expression when we choose to obey GOD.
- They don’t know what it feels like to sing the songs of their redemption.
Singing the beautiful songs of praise to our GOD for saving our unworthy souls is a great joy, honor and privilege. It’s an expression that is developed in our hearts that resonates through our vocal chords. It’s a sound of love to our LORD and Savior that angels cannot make.
- They don’t know the joy of answered prayer.
Prayer is that deep inward expression of hope and desire to have. We are privileged to be able to make intercession and supplication to our GOD for ourselves and for all humanity. To see our prayers come to fruition warms our hearts and gives us a joy that angels don’t have knowledge of.
- They don’t know what it is like to love their Savior.
There are no words to rightly define the feeling of love toward our Savior. Love is an emotion that stirs one toward a desire to express to someone through word and action how we feel about them. It goes beyond any material value. It’s a total commitment and devotion that we willingly give to someone.
- They don’t know what it feels like to get victory over sin.
Angels don’t know what it is like to win the battle over the sins that so easily separate us from the blessings of our LORD. They have no idea what it feels like to have been set free from the shackles of sin that once held us in bondage; comforted by the fact that this victory came through Christ on the cross.
- They don’t know what it feels like to hold a book in their hands that was personally written to them.
Being able to hold in our grip the Word that was written to us by a Holy GOD is a pleasure all in its own. Its pages give hope to a wandering soul and strength to the redeemed of the LORD. It maps out the fall of man, the promise of a Savior, the payment, forgiveness and washing away of sin, the resurrection unto life eternal and the reward of being forever in the presence of GOD.
- They don’t know the peace of being saved from the eternal fires of Hell.
The Holy angels of GOD don’t know what it feels like to live under the threat of the fiery indignation and wrath of GOD because of our sins to finally be delivered into His promises as one of His children.
- They don’t know the feeling of being resurrected from the grave.
Angels don’t know what it is like to be raised from the grave as in the Case of Lazarus of Bethany. To put on incorruption and be given a new body like unto our Lord and Savior will be a new experience for the children of GOD.
But most of all;
They don’t know what it’s like to look into the hands of their Savior and through the humbleness of one’s heart, gaze upon the scars that were put there by us!
You are a very special concern for God, so much so that He sent His only Son to die and pay the penalty for your sins so you wouldn’t have to. The choice to accept or reject this free gift of eternal life is your choice alone. Angels don’t have such a gift as this offered to them; they don’t have a choice like this to make, there is no plan of redemption for angels, no gift of salvation for them through Jesus Christ.
That’s how special you are to God!!!
The arms of a loving and forgiving Savior are open to everyone that will come and seek His forgiveness. GOD has a free gift that He has offered to the world. Now it is your time to respond to His invitation to be saved from the eternal fires of Hell. By bowing your head in prayer and acknowledging from your heart that you are a lost sinner and ask Him to forgive you; He will do that. Acknowledge that you have put your complete trust in Him alone to get you to Heaven and that you believe that He not only died on a cross to pay for our sins but that He rose from the dead and ascended into Heaven and is seated at the right hand of GOD the Father. Amen!
In having done this you can rest assured that you are now a child of GOD and He will take you into Heaven. Your sins have been washed away by the blood that HE shed for all of us on the cross and the Holy Spirit is now residing in your heart to teach and train you in the ways of righteousness.
If you made a decision to pray and ask Christ to forgive you, and to wash away all of your sin with His blood, and to come into your heart to be your Savior, then we praise God for you.
