Praise the LORD, you his angels,
you mighty ones who do his bidding,
who obey his word.
An anonymous author once wrote that “Everyone has the right to be stupid but some abuse the privilege.” Although the statement in question is highly charged with cynicism, it is still true oftentimes. Current events and news clips related to the supposed arrival, just today, of judgment day corroborate the observation made by the anonymous and cynic author of the aforementioned quote. The sinful nature of human beings drives them to be strongly attracted to the speculative, the occult, the fantastic and whatever has to do with scandal. Charlatans and deceivers take advantage of this inherent weakness in man to get people confused and to make personal profit at the expense of human ingenuity and stupidity. Another example is the resurgence of the New Age, which is nothing new because its teachings and philosophical concepts are based on old idolatry and doctrinal errors that were shown to be false a long time ago. However, people get these false teachings as something new and true. One of his favorite themes is Angelology, or the study of angels. According to these dealers of lies, angels are powerful spiritual beings who are in the service of humanity. I can only agree with these charlatans that angels are powerful spiritual beings but what the got completely wrong is that these beings are at the service of humanity.
Today’s word is clear about it. Angels obey the word of God and do his bidding. They obey the commands of God, not man’s. Even the fallen angels, better known as demons, do not obey man. They only recognize Satan as their leader and master. Of course, Satan, the father of lies, has been in charge of spreading around that these angelic beings are willing to do anything that is mandated by knowledgeable people who follow these false doctrines. Somehow the enemy gets it his way by making the attention of his deceived victims to focus on these presumed servants of humanity, and not on God, the Creator and Sustainer of life and the universe. Anybody who wants to learn about angels must study the Bible. There he will realize how much quackery he has been deceived with all this time. To God alone be the glory!
