Obey the angels
The Bible instructs us, “And thine ears shall hear a word behind thee, saying, This is the way, walk ye in it, when ye turn to the right hand, and when ye turn to the left” (Isaiah 30:21). Many examples can be found in both the Old and New Testaments where patriarchs, prophets, kings, and ordinary people heard God’s messages, followed His directions, and were blessed as a result. Christ Jesus indicated that he performed his healing works by following God’s guidance (see John 5:19–21).
The founder of Christian Science, Mary Baker Eddy, also taught the great importance of listening for and obeying God’s messages. In her book Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures, she defines angels as “God’s thoughts passing to man; spiritual intuitions, pure and perfect; the inspiration of goodness, purity, and immortality, counteracting all evil, sensuality, and mortality” (p. 581).
