Angel Encounters in the Bible

Angel Encounters in the Bible

Here is the download link:

We all have heard or read of people who are convinced that they were helped by an angel. The stories are touching, as a rule, but not always accurate according to what the Bible has to say about angels.

It has troubled me that people think that when a certain flower blooms, or they feel a presence in the room - particularly after a loved one has died, that then they are visited by angels. Well, maybe, but if they are assuming that the loved one has turned into an angel they are believing a false doctrine. I don't want to hurt or upset them, but - it would be better to know the truth, wouldn't it?

Much better and far more helpful! The truth about angels and their purpose is way above and more wonderful than most people grasp.

So when my friend, who is editor of AngelWatch, needed more articles I offered to do a number of short Bible study articles on the encounters that people have had in the Bible. These are recorded for our instruction, and I needed a clear and correct understanding of them. I tried to make these articles as interesting as I could within a one page limit.

It turned out to be a very helpful study for myself, and Connie was thrilled with the articles too. So I decided to put them together into an e-book and to pass it on as a gift to those who wanted to know more.

This 32 page devotional e-book can be downloaded to your computer in a trice. It comes in the ever popular PDF format, so that you can read it on your computer no matter what your operating system. Simply click this link, and when the download window pops up, guide it to the folder on your computer where you like to keep your e-book library. (Some use their Desktop). Once the download is finished you will need to open it with your un-zip program (in most cases that must means right-click on the file, and click on unzip on the fly-up menu).

Once you can see the file with the .pdf at the end, you are ready to click on it and your Acrobat Reader will open up with this e-book in it, ready to read.

My Summary Thoughts

As you can see, angels appear all through the Bible and had some interesting roles to play in carrying out God's will. There is something we can learn from each encounter. Most of these lessons can be applied to our personal understanding of, and the help we can receive from God via His angels.

I am sure you will be blessed and encouraged greatly by reading this book.
