How Strong Are the Angels?

YouTube   mp3

In heaven there is perfect harmony that works under the direction of a leading angel in music. This is the lesson that if we want to have harmony, this is God’s representation and example of harmony. There is order in heaven. The order is so fascinating. To some people these things appear as unnecessary in heaven.

There is perfect order and harmony in the Holy City. All the angels that are commissioned to visit the earth hold a golden card, which they present to the angels at the gates of the city as they pass in and out. Heaven is a good place. I long to be there and behold my lovely Jesus {EW 39.2}

Everyone has their place; there is the gatekeeper, maybe gatekeepers, there is a golden card by which the angels can recognise these persons have a right to enter the city.

All heaven was waiting to welcome the Saviour to the celestial courts. As He ascended, He led the way, and the multitude of captives set free at His resurrection followed. The heavenly host, with shouts and acclamations of praise and celestial song, attended the joyous train. {DA 833.2-7}

1 Chronicles 21:15 And God sent an angel unto Jerusalem to destroy it: and as he was destroying, the LORD beheld, and he repented him of the evil, and said to the angel that destroyed, It is enough, stay now thine hand. And the angel of the LORD stood by the threshingfloor of Ornan the Jebusite.

As he was destroying hundreds and thousands of people;

1 Chronicles 21:16 And David lifted up his eyes, and saw the angel of the LORD stand between the earth and the heaven, having a drawn sword in his hand stretched out over Jerusalem. Then David and the elders [of Israel, who were] clothed in sackcloth, fell upon their faces.

We hear so many stories of how angels are so gentle, so lovely and they are indeed but here we are looking at the fact that the angels are no weaklings. If the angel appeared here and showed his destructive force, we would all be dead. They are no weaklings.

A single angel destroyed all the first-born of the Egyptians and filled the land with mourning. When David offended against God by numbering the people, one angel caused that terrible destruction by which his sin was punished. The same destructive power exercised by holy angels when God commands, will be exercised by evil angels when He permits. There are forces now ready, and only waiting the divine permission, to spread desolation everywhere. {GC 614.2}

The good angels, to destroy when God command; and the evil angels to destroy when God permits. Embrace that power, that overwhelming destructive capability and at the same time. https://sabbathsermons.com/2010/02/24/practising-the-attitudes-of-heavenly-society/
