Are we listening to angels?

God's angel messages are always present, conveying truth. Our need is to have "ears that hear."

What are angels, anyway? Are they the corporeal beings with wings that literal Bible interpretations, folklore, and artists' conceptions lead us to believe? Is their job merely to pull us out of trouble and make life on earth more comfortable?

The Bible is full of accounts of how God and His angels ministered to the human need of those who depended whole­heartedly on Him. For instance, it was through the arrival of three heavenly visitors that Abraham and Sarah—"old and well stricken in age"See Gen. 18:9-14. —were told about the coming birth of their son, Isaac—an event that overturned human belief that the biological clock had run out for childbearing. It was also through an angel that Jacob found the inspiration and grace to defeat the self-will, fear, and duplicity that for years had obscured his spiritual birthright. These and other Bible characters had been receptive to angels through their deeper understanding of Almighty God and their growth in righteousness and faith.
