Messengers And Agents Of God

Genesis 19: 1, 15

When the two angels came to Sodom that evening, Lot was sitting at the city gate.  As soon as he saw them, he got up and went to meet them.  He bowed down before them.

At dawn, the angels tried to make Lot hurry. “Quick!” they said, “Take your wife and your two daughters and get out, so that you will not lose your lives when the city is destroyed.”

Genesis 21: 17

GOD heard the boy crying, and from heaven the angel of GOD spoke to Hagar, “What are you troubled about Hagar? Don’t be afraid.  GOD has heard the boy crying.”

Genesis 28: 12

He dreamed that he saw a stairway reaching from earth to heaven, with angels going up and coming down on it.

Genesis 48: 16

May the angel who has rescued me from all harm, bless them!

Numbers 22: 22-35

GOD was angry that Balaam was going, and as Balaam was riding along on his donkey, accompanied by his two servants, the angel of the LORD stood in the road to bar his way.

When the donkey saw the angel standing there holding a sword, it left the road and turned into the fields.  Balaam beat the donkey and brought it back into the road.

Then the angel stood where the road narrowed between two vineyards and had a stone wall on each side.

When the donkey saw the angel, it moved over against the wall and crushed Balaam’s foot against it.  Again Balaam beat the donkey.

Once more the angel moved ahead; he stood in a narrow place where there was no room at all to pass on either side.

This time, when the donkey saw the angel, it lay down.  Balaam lost his temper and began to beat the donkey with his stick.

Then the LORD gave the donkey the power of speech, and it said to Balaam, “What have I done to you? Why have you beaten me these three times?”

Balaam answered, “Because you have made a fool of me!  If I had a sword I would kill you.”

The donkey replied, “Am I not the same donkey on which you have ridden all your life? Have I treated you like this before?” “No,” he answered.

Then the LORD let Balaam see the angel standing there with his sword; and Balaam threw himself face downward on the ground.

The angel demanded, “Why have you beaten your donkey three times like this? I have come to bar your way, because you should not be making this journey.

But your donkey saw me and turned aside three times.  If it hadn’t, I would have killed you and spared the donkey.”

Balaam replied, ” I have sinned.  I did not know that you were standing in the road to oppose me; but now if you think it is wrong for me to go on, I will return home.”

But the angel said, “Go on with these men, but say only what I tell you to say.”  So Balaam went with them.

1 Kings 19: 5-7

Elijah lay down under the tree and fell asleep.  Suddenly an angel touched him and said, “Wake up and eat.”

He looked around and saw a loaf of bread and a jar of water near his head.  He ate and drank, and lay down again.

The LORD’s angel returned and woke him up a second time, saying, “Get up and eat, or the trip will be too much for you.”
