6-Faith In The Presence Of Angels And Their Works

We believe in the existence of angels, and the unseen spirits. We may not have seen an angel in our whole life, but despite of this, we believe they close to us “The angel of the Lord encamps all around those who fear Him, And delivers them. “ (Ps 34:7). We believe that the angels fill the church, and have confidence that

they are with us in all that we do “Are they not all ministering spirits sent forth to minister for those who will inherit salvation?” (Heb. 1:14).

Many are glad if they see the Virgin Mary or the saints in a revelation.

It is far greater to believe that they are around you without seeing them, as we have discussed this issue before here on in other sections. It is not necessary that God sends you a white dove during your evening church meetings, but you believe without seeing that the church is full of the spirits of angels. And the wings of the saints flutter upon it, the saints that God sent to serve humanity.

Gehazi the disciple of Elisha was afraid when he saw the enemies surrounding the city, but Elisha, the man with opened eyes saw the angels defending the it against the enemy. He comforted his disciple by saying “Do not fear, for those who are with us are more than those who are with them” (2 Kin 6:16). Elisha prayed that God would open the eyes of Gehazi to see and the conviction in unseen matters.
