Bible readers have sometimes wondered why the angels, those gracious messengers from God who frequently appear in Bible narratives, are no longer seen by men. Some may have been tempted to feel that they have reached an age which has outgrown them. They may, however, read again with comfort the narrative of the prophet Elijah, who, fleeing from the wrath of Queen Jezebel, and having gone "a day's journey into the wilderness," had reached the point of asking God that he might die. We are told that "as he lay and slept under a juniper tree, behold, then an angel touched him, and said unto him, Arise and eat.

... And the angel of the Lord came again the second time, and touched him, and said, Arise and eat; because the journey is too great for thee."
