Some Facts About Angels

 People like to think about and talk about them. Many tell stories of angels saving them from death, helping them in some miraculous way, or giving them a message they really needed to hear.  Here a few facts about angels. I am sure you have stories, also.

The Bible mentions angels around 300 times

1) The word angel means messenger. The first angel, mentioned in Genesis 16:7, carries a message from God, and the last one, in Revelation 22:16, relays a message from Christ.

2) Angels do not marry   

For in the resurrection they neither marry, nor are given in marriage, but are as the angels of God in heaven. Matthew 22:30 KJV

3) A lot of people think angels speak to us in our dreams. 

Some people owe their lives to a warning or instructions from an angel. You probably know someone who did or it even be you. The Bible mentions God speaking to people in dreams many times.

It is a fact because in Matthew 1:20 it says,  “But while he thought on these things, behold, the angel of the Lord appeared unto him in a dream, saying, Joseph, thou son of David, fear not to take unto thee Mary thy wife: for that which is conceived in her is of the Holy Ghost.”

4) Not all angels have wings and a halo.

Would you recognize an angel if you saw one? The Bible says you might not.

Hebrew 13: Be not forgetful to entertain strangers: for thereby some have entertained angels unawares. KJV

Some have entertain angels and just thought of them as strangers passing through.

5) God created angels to live forever.

 Luke 20
