The Mystery Of Angels

Angelic beings have always been a mystery to people on the earth. Do they exist? Is there a Satan the devil, or is it just a bunch of religious fiction to scare people?

The Bible reveals a very real but invisible world—another dimension, as some choose to call it—existing along with our own, absolutely indiscernible to our five senses. This is the spirit world.

In the first chapter of Hebrews, we read of angels serving as God’s secret messengers, sent forth to minister to those God has called to salvation and eternal life. Contrarily, in Ephesians 6 its stated that our contentions and strivings are in fact not with other human people, but against “principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness [evil spirits] in high places.” ‘So what’s going on? Are there good guys, bad guys in the spiritual realm? Believe it or not, that’s exactly what your Bible says.

Fallen angels (demons) are the cause of all the major problems in this world. In Ephesians 2:2, humans have been walking “according to the course of this world, according to the prince of the power of the air [Satan], the spirit that now worketh in the children of disobedience.” People simply do not realize that there is an invisible spirit power injecting into their minds these hostile attitudes.

This invisible spirit world (Col. 1:15-16) is very real but because it is invisible it has been a mystery. The fact that holy angels and evil spirits are invisible does not negate their existence. In truth the invisible spirit world is more real than the material and the visible. The Bible explains: “If our gospel be hid, it is hid to them that are lost: in whom the god of this world [Satan] hath blinded the minds of them which believe not” (II Cor. 4:3-4). Satan is the god of this world, and believe it or not, he influences not only the masses, but also 99.9% of religions today. That is why we see such a confusing mess of doctrines, man made edicts, wrong interpretations of deity, idol worship and so on. (more…)
