When we think about the spirit world, it is possible to spend all our time thinking about the "black hats." 😈That's what Dr. Mike Heiser calls the dark forces in the demonic realm. To be true, it is important to know we have a spiritual enemy and to know how to walk in victory over darkness.
However, it is important to also understand our allies. 💪 The problem with this is much of what the average Christian knows about angels comes from pop-culture 📺 and not the Bible.
Below are two videos.
One is a promo and the other is part one of a series on angels. In this study, Dr. Heiser wades through many topics concerning angels. Perhaps you will find answers to questions like:
- Does everyone have a guardian angel?
- What do we get wrong about angels? (spoiler alert: angels don't look like babies with wings.)
- What do angels look like?
- Do all angels have wings?
- Is the word "angel" just a job description? If so, what different types of angels are there?
- Did the devil start out as an angel?
I hope you enjoy because, as we are learning in our current series on Matthew, "The more we dig, the more we find."
