Chapter 5

Thinking About It

Is it necessary to believe in angels? The Bible mentions angels extensively (over 250 times) from Genesis to Revelation. Not only did Jesus refer to angels in His teaching, but the New Testament records that angels were present at Jesus’ birth, resurrection, and ascension. Angels also ministered to Him after His temptation by Satan in the wilderness and in the Garden of Gethsemane just prior to His arrest and crucifixion. Belief in the Bible, then, necessitates belief in the spirit world.

You may believe in angels but have never understood how knowing what God’s Word says about them applies to your life. We hope this booklet has shown you that there are practical truths we can discover by learning more about them.

Are you searching for answers to questions about the reality of the spirit world? Instead of reading all the books that deal with this subject, consider what the Bible says about Jesus Christ. He existed in the spirit world as the eternal God. But 2,000 years ago He entered the physical world as a man to pay the penalty for our sin—death. He lived a perfect life and became our substitute when He was crucified on the cross. Then He rose from the dead to provide eternal life for all who would put their trust in Him. The apostle John wrote, “But as many as received Him, to them He gave the right to become children of God, to those who believe in His name” (Jn. 1:12). Put your trust in Christ. Angels serve Him, so should you.
