As she grieved for her Son, she stooped down and looked into the sepulcher. There she saw two angels in white sitting, the one at the head, and the other at the feet, where the body of Jesus had lain John The invisible things of the heavenly world spoken of in Scripture are as real and understandable as the visible things seen on earth today.

The apostle Paul spoke of Jesus being the image of the invisible God, the firstborn of every creature Colossians 1: It is by Christ that all things [were] created, that are in heaven, and that are in earth, visible and invisible verse Invisible doesnt mean it cannot be seen somewhere. Its only blocked from our vision because we are limited to this planet, but it is visible in a different realm.

However, the line between the two is very thin. There is an invisible world in heaven, on earth, and under the earth. To you and me, however, we only see what is around us. Yet this does not mean that what is beyond our present isnt real. It exists, but in a different realm or location. We are housed in a body of flesh, but there are spirits in the world today we cannot see with our natural eyes. God created all things, and without him was not any thing made that was made John 1: As we will discuss later, not all of the dominions, principalities, and powers spoken of in Colossians 1 are holy.

According to Ephesians 6: However, the truth I want to emphasize is that all things were originally created holy and perfect. God Almighty designed the visible world to give us evidence of the invisible world, not the other way around.

The Creator, who is invisible, existed before there was an earth, before anything material. Angels, Satan, and demon spirits predate humanity.

First came the spiritual, then the physical. Mankind may attempt to ignore the existence of God, but their reasoning is futile. The apostle Paul makes this powerful argument: For the invisible things of him from the creation of the world are clearly seen, being understood by the things that are made, even his eternal power and Godhead; so that they are without excuse Romans 1: The glory of God and His invisible, eternal power is revealed through the visible world which He formed.

So when you admire majestic mountains, exquisite flowers, or watch a man or woman walking down a path enjoying Gods handiwork, it is evidence of a power that made it all possiblea divine force we cannot see.

Scripture tells us something quite remarkable: There are also celestial bodies, and bodies terrestrial: This speaks of an enormous universe that is unseen by humanitythe celestial invisible and the earthly visible. As we continue, we are going to look beyond the veil and see what the Bible has to say concerning what is now concealed.

We are not searching for what is unattainable, so out of our reach we can never touch it, but are searching for a better place. That is what the heroes of faith sought. The writer of Hebrews referred to those who died in the faith, not having received the promises, but having seen them afar off, and were persuaded of them, and embraced them, and confessed that they were strangers and pilgrims on the earth Hebrews What were they searching after?

For they that say such things declare plainly that they seek a country. And truly, if they had been mindful of that country from whence they came out, they might have had opportunity to have returned. But now they desire a better country, that is, an heavenly: They were looking for higher ground, the invisible kingdom of God.

Even though they couldnt see it, they knew it was there. For as the heavens are higher than the earth, so are my ways higher than your ways, and my thoughts than your thoughts Isaiah The Holy Bible is the only book ever written that gives us an insight into the heavenlies and allows us to peek into what lies beyond.

There are literally hundreds of Scriptures revealing all we need to know about this unseen world. We often miss the truth because we become bogged down in so many details, but what is spoken of is tangible and real. We are called to sit in heavenly places.

I pray that as we delve into the amazing revelations concerning both angels and demons, your heart, soul, and mind will hear from heaven. God is waiting to unlock His treasure-trove of knowledge just for you.

If you think all angels are good and obey Gods voice, think again! We know from Isaiah However, the Almighty knows which angels disobey Him, and there will be a severe price to pay.

Scripture tells us that the angels which kept not their first estate, but left their own habitation, he hath reserved in everlasting chains under darkness unto the judgment of the great day Jude 6. In certain instances like dealing with Egypt during the time of Moses , God sends evil angels to do His work. As the psalmist wrote, He cast upon them the fierceness of his anger, wrath, and indignation, and trouble, by sending evil angels among them Psalm In the final analysis, there is no hope for disobedient angels.

They are doomed to spend eternity in the lake of fire. Then shall he say also unto them on the left hand, Depart. As a believer, you cannot be torn away from your heavenly Father even by evil angels. You can say with Paul, For I am persuaded, that neither death, nor life, nor angels, nor principalities, nor powers, nor things present, nor things to come, nor height, nor depth, nor any other creature, shall be able to separate us from the love of God, which is in Christ Jesus our Lord Romans 8: I like what Martin Luther, the leader of the Reformation, once said: Let your holy Angel have charge concerning us, that the wicked one have no power over us.

Or a cherub with a bow and arrow adorning a Valentines Day card. As we open the pages of Gods Word, however, we discover more than one type of angel. They appear in unique forms, at different times, for specific purposes. In fact, there are five separate divisions of angels mentioned in the Bible: Lets look at the first division called the seraphim. What is Their Function? This is one category of the angelic host we know very little about.

Who are the seraphim? What is their function? The seraph, or the seraphim, are mentioned just twice in the Bibleand only in one portion of Scripture. The prophet Isaiah writes, In the year that king Uzziah died I saw also the LORD sitting upon a throne, high and lifted up, and his train [the skirt of His robe] filled the temple.

Above it stood the seraphims: What an amazing description. Try to visualize one of these angels with six wings two hiding his face he could not look at Gods glory , two covering his feet recognizing subservience to the Almighty , and two for flying taking care of Gods business. The fact they are called seraphim plural means there are many of them.

We arent given an exact number, but we do know they stand over the throne of God. There is no record as to where seraphim fly, but they have never been seen on earth. Perhaps this is what Paul was referring to when he talked about being caught up to the third heaven and witnessing things he could not explain 2 Corinthians Their function as described here is to speak to each other about Gods holiness and His great acts. These angels in heaven, with wings covering their eyes, continually cry out and worship the Almighty.

The result of their speaking is a tremendous release of Gods presence. And the posts of the door moved at the voice of him that cried, and the house was filled with smoke verse 4. This was a commotion so great that it shook the very foundation of the temple in heaven where God abides. The doors began to vibrate! When Isaiah witnessed this awesome event, he was so frightened that he exclaimed, Woe is me! Next, we learn that one of the seraphim, having a live coal in his hand, which he had taken with the tongs from off the altar This opens our eyes to something else about these angels.

In addition to their wings, they have hands. When the prophets lips were touched by the angel, his iniquity was removed. However, since angels do not have the authority to forgive sin, the seraph was speaking on Gods behalf.

It was the cherubim that protected the Tree of Life from Adam and Eve after the Creator banished them from the Garden of Eden because of their sin. So he drove out the man; and he placed at the east of the garden of Eden Cherubims, and a flaming sword which turned every way, to keep the way of the tree of life Genesis 3: Centuries later, after Ezekiel had a vision of God, he began to see these particular angels.

He wrote, Then I looked, and, behold, in the firmament that was above the head of the cherubims there appeared over them as it were a sapphire stone, as the appearance of the likeness of a throne Ezekiel Verse 21 of this same chapter gives this description: Every one had four faces apiece, and every one four wings; and the likeness of the hands of a man was under their wings.

That is most revealing. Seraphim have six wings while cherubim have only four, but the most unusual aspect is that each has four faces. To discover what was taking place, its important to refer back to the first chapter of Ezekiel:. Now it came to pass in the thirtieth year, in the fourth month, in the fifth day of the month, as I was among the captives by the river of Chebar, that the heavens were opened, and I saw visions of God.

In the fifth day of the month, which was the fifth year of king Jehoiachins captivity, the word of the LORD came expressly unto Ezekiel the priest, the son of Buzi, in the land of the Chaldeans by the river Chebar; and the hand of the LORD was there upon him. And I looked, and, behold, a whirlwind came out of the north, a great cloud, and a fire infolding itself, and a brightness was about it, and out of the midst thereof as the colour of amber, out of the midst of the fire Ezekiel 1: From the north there approached what looked like a tornado.

Wrapped in this whirlwind was a cloud and fire, and it was headed straight towards the prophet.

What happened next was startling: Also out of the midst thereof came the likeness of four living creatures. And this was their appearance; they had the likeness of a man. And every one had four faces, and every one had four wings Ezekiel 1: Notice, Ezekiel 10 refers to them as cherubim, but Ezekiel 1 calls them living creatures.

But they are the same, each with four faces and four wings. Their feet were straight feet; and the sole of their feet was like the sole of a calfs foot: These creatures were gleaming! In addition, they had the hands of a man under their wings verse 8; see also Ezekiel And we learn that the wings of the cherubim were joined one to another; they turned not when they went; they went every one straight forward Ezekiel 1: They undertook their assigned duties in total unity.

Where one goes, they all go. Remember, they had never been seen by man with the exception of Adam, when the cherubim protected the Tree of Life. They were probably surrounding the tree since there was more than one of these angels.

In Ezekiels vision, the line of four-faced cherubim were walking forward together. What were the four faces? Scripture tells us they had the face of a man, and the face of a lion, on the right side: I want to add here an important truth about this portion of scripture.

The mention of the four faces of the cherubs is also a revelation of the Lord Jesus. The face of a man speaks of His humanity; the face of the lion speaks of His authority; the face of the ox speaks of His sacrifice on the cross; and the face of the eagle speaks of His deity. This is amazing, but theres still more. We learn that their wings were stretched upward; two wings of every one were joined one to another, and two covered their bodies verse I can visualize these angels with the face of a man, a lion, an ox, and an eagle, all marching in unison, with their upper wings joining them together.

With their second set of wings they covered their bodies. The Bible adds this important point: Whither the spirit was to go, they went; and they turned not when they went verse In other words, the cherubim always follow the Holy Spirit.

Their description of there living creatures defies imagination. Their appearance was like burning coals of fire, and like the appearance of lamps: And the living creatures ran and returned as the appearance of a flash of lightning verses Even though the cherubim were united as if tied together, they moved back and forth with incredible speed as one! Earlier, we discovered the seraphim was dressed in white, but not the cherubim. They appeared like red-hot burning fire! In verse 20 we are told once more that theirs was a Spirit-guided mission.

Whithersoever the spirit was to go, they went, thither was their spirit to go; and the wheels were lifted up over against them: Ive heard some people speculate that these wheels mentioned here were flying saucers. Thats foolishness. The cherubim were riding on wheels of fire! As Ezekiel looked at these living creatures, behold one wheel upon the earth by the living creatures, with his four faces.

The appearance of the wheels and their work was like unto the colour of a beryl: There were two wheelsone outer, one inner. As for their rings, they were so high that they were dreadful; and their rings were full of eyes round about them four verse Imagine a wheel within a wheeland that the wheels are actually eyes.


These fourfaced living creatures had eyes all around them. Again, I believe that is why the apostle Paul found it impossible to describe what he saw in heaven. God has created what we have never seen beforefar beyond what we can comprehend with our limited, human mind. Both spiritual and physical connections lie between the wheels and the cherubim.

When those [cherubim] went, these [wheels] went; and when those stood, these stood; and when those were lifted up from the earth, the wheels were lifted up over against them: And the likeness of the firmament upon the heads of the living creature was as the color of the terrible crystal stretched forth over their heads above verse The average person never thinks about angels this way, but picture: Under the firmament were their wings straight, the one toward the other: As the cherubim moved forward, Ezekiel heard a sound his ears had never before experienced.

In his own words he describes the picture unfolding before him: When they went, I heard the noise of their wings, like the noise of great waters, as the voice of the Almighty, the voice of speech, as the noise of an host verse There were so many of these cherubim that the movement of their wings must have sounded like the rushing waters of Niagara Falls, or as a great chorus of voices magnifying the Lord.

A mighty noise erupted! But when they stood still and let down their wings, the loud sound ceased. Ezekiel was able to hear a voice coming from over their heads. He saw a throne that looked like a sapphire stone, and Upon the likeness of the throne was the likeness as the appearance of a man above upon it Ezekiel 1: How awesome!

I believe he saw multiple lines with thousands of cherubimupper wings connected, lower wings covering their bodies, fiery wheels beneath them, with eyes looking in every direction. Above this scene was God Almighty! What was the assignment of these heavenly beings? They were carrying the wondrous glory of God! In the Greek they are called zoa, translated living creatures. These angels are similar to cherubim, except they only have one head, and their bodies are full of eyes in front and behind, perhaps hundreds of eyes.

The zoa are also like the seraphim, in that they each have six wings. Heres how they are described in Johns revelation: Before the throne there was a sea of glass like unto crystal: And the first beast [or the first zoa creature] was like a lion, and the second beast like a calf, and the third beast had a face as a man, and the fourth beast was like a flying eagle Revelation 4: The seraphim were seen above the throne of God, the cherubim were seen under the throne, but the living creatures were in the midst As I mentioned earlier, when Ezekiel described the cherubim, each of them had four facesthat of a man, a lion, an ox, and an eagle.

Now, in Revelation we find four separate angelic creatures, each with an individual face. Three of the four faces are the same as those on the cherubim, while the fourth is a calf instead of an ox. Concerning the wings and eyes of the zoa, The four beasts had each of them six wings about him; and they were full of eyes within: Like the seraphim as revealed to the prophet Isaiah, they worshiped God, crying, Holy, holy, holy Isaiah 6: Even today, we use these words as we come into the hallowed presence of the Almighty.

The events of Revelation 5 are centered around the question asked by an angel with a loud voice: Who is worthy to open the book, and to loose the seals thereof? John wrote, No man in heaven, nor in earth, neither under the earth, was able to open the book, neither to look thereon.

And I wept much, because no man was found worthy to open and to read the book, neither to look thereon verses But one of the 24 elders comforted him, saying, Weep not: It was the Son of God, a Lamb as it had been slain verse 6 , who was standing in the midst of the throne, the four living creatures, and the elders. Then Jesus came and took the book out of the right hand of him that sat upon the throne verse 7.

Now we see another reference to these four living creatures: When he had taken the book [with seven seals], the four beasts [zoa] and four and twenty elders fell down before the Lamb, having every one of them harps, and golden vials full of odours, which are the prayers of saints Revelation 5: The 24 elders mentioned are men, possibly the 12 apostles and the 12 sons of Jacob. If you look closely youll discover these angels are not empty-handed.

In one hand they carry a harp and in the other a golden vial filled with the prayers of believers. Think of it! Every time you cry out to God, what you say is stored in that container and is presented to the Lord. It is recorded and remembered forever. Envision what is taking place in heaven! God Almighty is seated on His throne. Above Him are seraphim; below Him are cherubim; and He is surrounded by zoa, living creatures playing their harps for worship and carrying a vial of incense odors rising from it to remind God of what His people, the church, have asked for.

As they present your prayers and worship they fall before the Lamb verse 8 , before Jesus. Not only are the angels prostrate before the Son of God, but also the 24 elders. After Jesus the Lamb, takes the book from the hand of God, they sung a new song, saying, Thou art worthy to take the book, and to open the seals thereof: And hast made us unto our God kings and priests: The fact that Jesus was slain for the sins of mankind gave Him the authority to break the seals and open the scroll.

You may question, how could the zoa, the angels, be redeemed? They were not men and did not come out of every tribe and tongue. That is true, but what we find here is the angels identifying with the church by joining the 24 elders in worshiping God and thanking Jesus for shedding His blood on the cross.

That is why, together they could rejoice and sing, Worthy is the Lamb that was slain to receive power, and riches, and wisdom,. Later in Johns revelation, when the judgements of God had begun, he saw another sign in heaven, great and marvelous, seven angels having the seven last plagues; for in them is filled up the wrath of God Revelation John was shown what looked like a sea made of glass with flames of fire.

The victors were standing there, carrying harps and rejoicing that they had triumphed over the Beast the antichrist and the number of his name verse 2. The angels sang the song of the Lamb, saying, Great and.

Then John watched as the doors of the temple opened wide and the seven angels carrying the seven plagues appeared. They were dressed in clean, white linen and wore gold vests verses What happens next is remarkable: One of the four beasts zoa gave unto the seven angels seven golden vials full of the wrath of God Revelation Remember, in verse 1, John saw seven angels having the seven last plagues that represented the anger of the Almighty.

But now, one of these living creatures approached the seven angels, handing them the seven wrath-filled vials. This tells us that these angels were the angels of judgment.

Now remember what was written of the seraphim. After the living creatures gave the vials of judgment filled with the wrath of God to the seven angels, the temple was filled with smoke from the glory of God and no man was able to enter into the temple, till the seven plagues of the seven angels were fulfilled verse 8. As they began pouring the contents from their seven vials Revelation 16 , we see a spectacular scene unfolding:.

The first angel poured out his vial on the earth, and there fell a noisome and grievous sore upon the men which had the mark of the beast, and upon them which worshipped his image Revelation The second angel poured out his vial on the sea, and it became as the blood of a dead man: The third angel poured out his vial upon the rivers, and they became blood verse 4.

The fourth angel poured out his vial upon the sun, and power was given unto him to scorch men with fire verse 8. The fifth angel poured out his vial upon the seat of the beast [the antichrist], and his kingdom was full of darkness; and they gnawed their tongues for pain verse The sixth angel poured out his vial upon the great river Euphrates, and the water thereof was dried up verse The seventh angel poured out his vial into the air, and there came a great voice out of the temple of heaven, from the throne, saying, It is done verse If you recall, it was the seven vials that contained the prayers of the saints Revelation 5: Today, we can thank God for the marvelous work of those angels.

The word itself means chief rulers. In some passages of Scripture they are referred to as princes. We read about an archangel heralding the second coming of Christ: The Lord himself shall descend from heaven with a shout, with the voice of the archangel, and with the trump of God: Only three archangels are specifically mentioned by name in Scripture:.

Michael, whose name in Hebrew means like unto God. Gabriel, meaning man of God. Lucifer, which means light holder. It is significant that the names of the two, Michael and Gabriel, end with the suffix el, which is Hebrew for God. But Lucifer has no such divine attribute. Why didnt the Creator give Lucifer a name that was connected to the Almighty?

Because God knew the end from the beginning. In addition to these three, there is also mention of Apollyon, the angel of the bottomless pit Revelation 9: At one time Lucifer had significant control over the earth and our universe. He was equal with Michael and Gabriel, even though each had a different function:. Michaels assignment was to protect Gods people, the Jews, and to fulfill that which concerns Israel.

Gabriel was to standd in the presence of God, proclaiming His Word. Lucifer was, at one time, responsible for praise and worship. We read in the Bible that Lucifer was covered with jewels and filled with music. God told him, You were the seal of perfection, full of wisdom and perfect in beauty. You were in Eden, the garden of God; every precious stone was your covering: As such, he was a living orchestra, a symphony within himself, filling heaven with praise to God.

Lucifer was so powerful that he walked up and down in the midst of stones of fire verse He had the authority to walk in the very presence of the Almighty. This was no ordinary angel. God called Lucifer the anointed cherub who covers; I established you; you were on the holy mountain of God verse He certainly was not one of the cherubim described by Ezekiel because he had the position of an archangel, or chief angel.

However, God gave him the title of the anointed cherub because he was connected to worship. Lucifer was the only angelic being in heaven who held two officesworship leader and covering cherub, which means he was elevated above others. Ultimately, these titles and positions caused Lucifer to be filled with enormous pride.

In fact, he wanted to be worshiped just like God, which led him to invade heaven because of his jealousy. He was cast out of heaven to the earth. Lucifer also ruled over one-third of all.

Gods holy angels. He corrupted them and they later rebelled against God Himself. This brought about their destructions and Lucifers fall. Isaiah describes the event: How art thou fallen from heaven, O Lucifer, son of the morning!

For thou hast said in thine heart, I will ascend into heaven, I will exalt my throne above the stars of God: I will sit also upon the mount of the congregation, in the sides of the north: I will ascend above the heights of the clouds; I will be like the most High.

Yet thou shalt be brought down to hell, to the sides of the pit Isaiah It is essential to understand that these occurrences were pre-Adamic, before the creation of man. This could not have happened after the Garden of Eden, because when Adam was created, Satan was already on the earth, meaning he had already been cast out of heaven.

He was no longer Lucifer, the holy archangel. God told him that from the day of his creation he was perfect in every way until evil was detected in him.

Because of his actions, he turned violent and rebelled against God. God cast this anointed angel out of heaven because his heart was lifted up because of his beauty.

He corrupted wisdom to attain worldly fame, and God threw him to the ground Ezekiel Because of his rebellion, Lucifer was permanently banished from heaven. When God created the earth and mankind, it was the serpent Satan, the fallen Luciferwho approached Eve to deceive her.

Prior to that time the earth was inhabited by beings we today call demons. I know this may come as a surprise to you, but I believe there was a race on earth before Adam ever lived on it. That is why God said to the first man, Replenish the earth, and subdue it Genesis 1: Note, the word is not plenish but replenish.

He was saying, The earth was full, but it is now empty. So fill it up again. God gave the same directive to Noah after He destroyed the earth with a great flood.

When the waters subsided, He told Noah and his sons, Be fruitful, and multiply, and replenish the earth Genesis 9: The Almighty also instructed Adam to subdue the earth verse 28 , which brings us to the question: The Creator said this because Satan and his demons were already present on this planet. The only conclusion I can come to is that prior to Adam there was an earth filled with inhabitants who were not men, who were not created after the image and likeness of God.

The earth was filled with demons and had a fallen archangel ruling over it. Many Bible scholars point to a gap between the first and second verses of Genesis. Verse one reads, In the beginning God created the heaven and the earth. And beginning in Hebrew is barasheet, which means in the dateless past. In addition, the King James Version uses the translation heaven as singular, but the Hebrew word is shamayim which is plural.

The Bible refers to three heavens:. The first heaven is our atmosphere, what we can see: God called the firmament Heaven Genesis 1: This is also described by the psalmist: When I consider thy heavens, the work of thy fingers, the moon and the stars, which thou hast ordained Psalm 8: The second heaven is where spiritual forces of wickedness reside: We wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness in high places Ephesians 6: This is where Satan is now ruling.

The third heaven is where God abides. It was described by the apostle Paul, who was caught up to the third heaven 2 Corinthians The second verse of Genesis 1 is eye-opening: The earth was without form, and void; and darkness was upon the face of the deep.

Suddenly, we go from perfectiona heaven and earth created by Godto an unsightly, messed up earth. I thank God for allowing me to be born in Israel where I learned to write and speak Hebrew. It has given me a valuable insight into Scripture that I treasure every day.

There continues to be a theological debate over the meaning of was in Genesis 1: The earth was In Hebrew, was hayah has two meanings. It can be either became or was to already exist. You choose.

If the meaning is became, there is a gap between verses one and two. If the meaning is was, there is no gapno pre-Adamic world. To put it another way, if the verse reads, The earth became without form, and void, then something caused it.

In my study of the scriptures, I side with those who use became. Otherwise, the earth God created in Genesis 1 was really a piece of mud He took a lengthy time to develop, and that would be evolutionary. However, if in verse 2 the earth became a void, it changes the entire picture.

Because the Bible declares, God himself Our heavenly Father doesnt create chaos; His work is perfect! But perfection was destroyed by the fall of Lucifer. That is documented in the book of Job where we are told that God in anger judged the earth: He removes the mountains, and they do not know when He overturns them in His anger; He shakes the earth out of its place, and its pillars tremble; He commands the sun, and it does not rise; He seals off the stars Job 9: Isaiah wrote, Behold, the LORD maketh the earth empty, and maketh it waste, and turneth it upside down, and scattereth abroad the inhabitants thereof Isaiah When did God seal up the stars in anger?
