This Too Shall Pass

Angels are Superior in this Present Time

Some people may not think that is important when it comes to learning about angels; as with everything else in the Bible, there is a purpose for all the scriptures. Not having an understanding will cause the Word of God to be misinterpreted.

I wonder how many people know this. We are lower than angels at this present time; Jesus was also lower than the angels in His humanity.

We are lower than angels

Pertaining to Jesus - You have made him a little lower than the angels; You have crowned him with glory and honor and set him over the works of Your hands (Psalm 8:5, Hebrews 2:7). If Christ was made lower than angels, then we are definitely lower than angels.

Then they came and laid hands on Jesus and took Him. And suddenly, one of those who were with Jesus stretched out his hand and drew his sword, struck the servant of the high priest, and cut off his ear.

But Jesus said to him, put your sword in its place, for all who take the sword will perish by the sword. Or do you think that I cannot now pray to My Father, and He will provide Me with more than twelve legions of angels? (Matthew 26:53).

If Christ needed protection, His Father would have sent the angels. God has given His angels charge over us to keep [protect us] (Psalm 91:11).  

God not only has His angels protecting us, but when life comes to an end, we are ushered into His presence. So it was that the beggar died and was carried by the angels to Abraham’s bosom. The rich man also died and was buried. And being in torments in Hades, he lifted up his eyes and saw Abraham afar off, and Lazarus in his bosom (Luke 16:22-23).

Next- We Will be Superior to Angels in the Eternal Realm.
