Part 6: Angels at work

(This is part 6 of 9 parts in this class)


I always get excited by the accounts in the Bible of angels ministering to save God's men and women! In the New Testament, for example, Apostle Paul experienced many miraculous deliverances. In most cases we can only speculate as to the degree of angelic involvement. One thing is certain though in spite of all he came up against at the end of it he was able to say,

Out of them all the Lord delivered me!

2 Timothy 3:11 - KJV


Peter could have made the same declaration. In the Bible we have the account of his deliverance from Herod's prison. He was chained up with a total of 16 soldiers guarding him and from that the Lord delivered him. We are told an angel appeared, loosed the chains and led him right out into the street of the city! (Acts 12)

What a powerful example of angelic intervention on behalf of one of God's children!


It was just as God promised,

The angel of the Lord encamps all around those who fear Him, and delivers them.

Psalm 34:7 - NKJV
