    The Lord of Angels
    Series: Angels
    Matthew 1:7
     
    I. Angels Announced Jesus’ Birth
     
    “This is how the birth of Jesus Christ came about: his mother Mary was pledged to be married to Joseph, but before they came together, she was found to be with child through the Holy Spirit. Because Joseph was a righteous man and did not want to expose her to public disgrace, he had in mind to divorce her quietly. But after he considered this, an angel of the Lord appeared to him in a dream and said, Joseph son of David, do not be afraid to Mary home as your wife, because what is conceived in her is from the Holy Spirit. She will give birth to a son, and you are to give him the name Jesus, because he will save his people from their sins.” ~ Matthew 1:18-21

    IV. Angels Were Available at Jesus’ Death
     
    V. Angels Were Active At The Resurrection
     
    Matthew 28:1 “On Easter Sunday morning, Mary Magdalene and the other Mary went to look at the tomb. There was a violent earthquake, for an angel of the Lord came down from heaven and, going to the tomb, rolled back the stone and sat on it. His appearance was like lightning, and his clothes were as white as snow. The guards were so afraid of him that they shook and became like dead men. The angel said to the women, ‘Do not be afraid, for I know that you are looking for Jesus, who was crucified. He is not here; he has risen, just as he said. Come and see the place where he lay. Then go quickly and tell the disciples. He has risen from the dead and is going ahead of you into Galilee. There you will see him.’
     
    VI. Angels Anticipated Jesus’ Return
     
    Acts 1: 10 “The disciples were looking intently up into the sky as Jesus left earth to return to heaven,
    When suddenly two men dressed in white stood beside them. Men of Galilee, why do you stand here looking into the sky? This same Jesus, who has been taken from you into heaven, will come back in the same way you have seen him go into]
    Heaven.”
     
    VII. Angels Will Accompany Jesus When He Returns
     
    Matthew 24:30,31 “At that time the sign of the Son of Man will appear in the sky, and all the nations of the earth will mourn. They will see the Son of Man coming on the clouds of the sky, with power and great glory. And he will send his angels with a loud trumpet call, and they will gather believers from one end of the heavens to the other.”
     
    Matthew 13: 37-42 “The one who sowed the good seed is the Son of Man. The field is the world, and the good seed stands for the sons of the kingdom. The weeds are the sons of the evil one, and they enemy who sows them is the devil. The harvest is the end of the age, and the harvesters are angels. As the weeks are pulled up and burned in the fire, so will it be at the end of the age. The Son of Man will send out his angels, and they will weed out of his kingdom everything that causes sin and all who do evil. They will throw them into the fiery furnace, where there will be weeping and gnashing of teeth.”
     
    “And I saw an angel coming down out of heaven, having the key to the Abyss and holding in his hand
    A great chain. He seized the dragon, that ancient serpent, who is the devil, or Satan, and bound him over for 1,000 years. He threw him into the Abyss, locked it and sealed it over him to keep him from deceiving the nations anymore until the 1,000 years were ended. After that, he was set free for a short time.”

    What Have We Learned In 2020?
    James 1:2-8
     
    “Consider it a gift, friends, when tests and challenges come at you from all sides. You know that under pressure, your faith-life is forced into the open and shows it true colors. So don’t try to get out of anything prematurely. Let it do its work so you become mature and well developed, no deficient in any way. If you do not know what you are doing, pray to the Father. He loves to help. You will get its help, and won’t be condescended to when you ask for it. Ask boldly, believingly, without a second thought. People who worry their prayers are like wind whipped waves. Don’t think you are going to get anything from the Master that way, adrift at sea, keeping all your options open.” (James 1: 1-8 The Message)

    Psalm 34:7, Psalm 91:3-13
     
    “The angel of the Lord encamps around those who fear him, and he delivers them.” ~ Psalm 34:7 (NASV)
     
    “Fear nothing – not wild wolves in the night, not flying arrows in the day, not disease that prowls through the darkness, not disaster that erupts at high noon. Even though others succumb all around, drop like flies right and left, no harm will even graze you. You will stand untouched, watch it all from a distance, with the wicked turn into corpses. Yes, because God’s your refuge, the High God your very own home, Evil can’t get close to you, harm can’t get through the door. He ordered his angels to guard you wherever you go. If you stumble, they’ll catch you; their job is to keep you from falling. You’ll walk unharmed among lions and snakes, and kick young lions and serpents from the path.” ~ Psalm 91: 3-13
     
    I. Angels Are God’s Messengers

    1 Kings 19:5 “He lay down under the tree and fell asleep. All at once an angel touched him and said, Get up and eat!”
     
    “See, I am sending an angel ahead of you to guard you along the way and to bring you to the place I have prepared.”
    ~ Exodus 23:20

    “The time came when the Lazarus died and the angels carried him to Abraham’s side.” ~Luke 16:22 (NASV)
     
    IV. Angels Join With Us In Praising God
     
    “Praise him, all his angels, praise him all His heavenly hosts.” ~ Psalm 148:2
