We are not just saying/sharing this in blind faith…
The Word is The Word of God. Yes, there are individuals who have dreams; hear a Voice, are by some means are led to do specific things…
In many passages from the Bible, angels are utilized as messengers; indeed, there is no specific Hebrew equivalent for the English word “angel”. Angels seem to have the appearance of ordinary humans; they are typically men and (unlike seraphim), have no wings.
Both Ezekiel and Daniel described angelic beings with fiery features “like burning coals of fire or like the appearance of torches,” a face “like lightning,” and eyes “like torches of fire” (Ezekiel 1:13, Daniel 10:4-6).
Abram (renamed Abraham) was visited by Heavenly host:
Abraham was visited by three men one day; the men turned out to be unusual guests, to say the least, and the visit was life-changing for Abraham and Sarah. Genesis 18:1–2 says, “The Lord appeared to Abraham near the great trees of Mamre while he was sitting at the entrance to his tent in the heat of the day. Abraham looked up and saw three men standing nearby. When he saw them, he hurried from the entrance of his tent to meet them and bowed low to the ground.” Abraham showed immediate hospitality to the three men, inviting them to rest under a tree and preparing a big meal for them (verses 3–8).
During their visit with Abraham, the three men warned him that God’s judgment was about to fall upon Sodom and Gomorrah (Genesis 18:20–21; 19:12–13). They also promised that Abraham’s wife, Sarah, would have a baby by the same time next year (Genesis 18:10).
Some have suggested that all three of these “men” were angelic beings who appeared to Abraham in the form of men. However, Genesis 18:1 says that it was “the LORD” (Yahweh) who appeared to Abraham. It is the LORD who speaks in verses 13, 20, 26, and 33. Abraham stands “before the LORD” in verse 22. So, one of the three “men” must have been God Almighty taking on the appearance of a man. We call such an appearance a “theophany.” When Jesus appears in His pre-incarnate body in the Old Testament, we call it a “Christophany.” Whether God’s appearance to Abraham in Mamre was a theophany or a Christophany, we don’t know. But it does seem clear from the context that one of the visitors was God Himself (Genesis 18:22) and the other two were the angels who later visited Sodom and spoke to Lot (Genesis 19:1).
Abraham’s response to the appearance of the three men also suggests that he instinctively knew that he was in the presence of God. A typical response to visitors in that culture was to rise and wait for them to approach the home. But Abraham ran to meet them and “bowed low to the ground,” a prostrate posture reserved for royalty or deity.
Abraham was well acquainted with the LORD and would have instantly recognized Him, because the Lord had spoken and/or appeared to him many times before. Those appearances include the following occasions:
• when God first called him (Genesis 12:1–3)
• when Abraham parted ways with Lot (Genesis 13:14–17)
• possibly when he met Melchizedek (Genesis 14:18–20)
• when God made a covenant with him (Genesis 15)
• when God restated His covenant (Genesis 17)
These three visitors whom Abraham entertained were heavenly, and Abraham and Sarah were in the company of God Himself. The story teaches us that God is aware of what is happening on Earth, and He is involved. God can even visit or send His Heavenly messengers to help fulfill His plans. We may not always realize Whom we are speaking with, so we should treat everyone as though they were on special assignment from God. Hebrews 13:2 reminds us, “Do not forget to show hospitality to strangers, for by so doing some people have shown hospitality to angels without knowing it.”
For so many reasons Abraham is known as the father of faith. For Christians, Abraham is seen as the “father of the faith” and is honored for his obedience. The Apostle Paul expands the concept of being a descendent of Abraham when he writes in his letter to the Galatians: “So also Abraham believed God, and it was credited to him as righteousness.”
To step back in ‘Time’ – there was naught but Heaven and its inhabitants. The Big Bang, a stroke of God’s paintbrush or Word.
As God spoke things into existence; the first incident of pride came to be:
What is your purpose in creation? Your life purpose consists of the central motivating aims of your life—the reasons you get up in the morning. Purpose can guide life decisions, influence behavior, shape goals, offer a sense of direction, and create meaning. For some people, purpose is connected to vocation—meaningful, satisfying work.
“I live to bring glory to my Lord and Savior Jesus Christ through consistent worship, by my praise and in my life; to cultivate a life of intimacy with God; and to equip women and men for ministry through the power of the Holy Spirit.”
And we circle back around to The Characteristic of God; The Same always! Amen. The purpose of Man is to glorify God and to enjoy Him forever.
Scripture: “So, whether you eat or drink, or whatever you do, do all to the glory of God.”
“Worthy are You, our Lord and God, to receive glory and honor and power, for You Created all things, and by Your will they existed and were Created, Hallelujah, Amen.”
Ecclesiastes 12:13, in the King James Version of the Bible: Let us hear the conclusion of the whole matter: Fear God, and keep His commandments: for this is the whole duty of Man.
And we pray:
Father LORD, Creator of ALL, we give Your Essence glory and praise. In existence, I am a fleck; Creare in me a new heart and rain Your blessings down on me, I pray in Jesus’ name, Amen. LORD, place Your cause and reason for me in my heart. Hallelujah for doors that in the divine realm You have Sooken open. I give You ALL praise and glory for closed doors. In my life LORD, be glorified I pray in Jesus’ name. Cleanse me with The blood of Jesus and make me worthy to stand before You and be used to Your glory. In Your Word, Isaiah was sent forth with Your Word, he stated that he had unclean lips and You allowed him to be made whole by a burning coal from Your alter. Father, cleanse me and by Your grace I am made whole in Jesus’ Name, Amen.
In Isaiah 6, Isaiah’s mouth is touched by a piece of coal from that altar, after which his guilt departs from him, despite his declaration that he is “a man of unclean lips.” Ezekiel is told to eat the contents of a scroll that is handed to him, he obeys and quickly realizes that the scroll tastes as sweet as honey.
