Topic: Where Angels Fear to Tread (not about the book) (09/08/11)

TITLE: "Where" I said, "would Angels fear to tread?"
By Ramona Cook


Our fascination with angels is a compelling engagement among all people in every generation.

Angels are God’s creation for purposes of service and duty, even as we of the human species have also been created for specific purposes and service.

Angels do the will of God as He instructs them to perform any given task. I am certain that Angels would fear to disobey God. Some of them did, once upon a time and now, those who have obeyed God can see the outcome of such disobedience.

There are those of us that disbelieve the existence of Angels. There are those of us who disbelieve the existence of God, because they say, “I cannot believe in what I cannot see.” Why does no one disbelieve the existence of the wind?

Angels are as real as the rest of God’s creation, including us. Some of us see them, and yet do not recognize them. Some of us see them and do recognize them occasionally. Some of us never see them.

Angels are not blinded to the view of the spiritual realm as are we, the sons of Adam blinded by the veil of Sin that covers our eyes until the blood of Jesus takes the veil away. Even then our natural eyes may not see the Angels but our spirits know their presence.

It must not concern us if we do not see the Angels, nor if we do not recognize them. They are at work in our behalf anyway.

Psalm 91:9-12 “Because you have made the Lord, which is my refuge, even the Most High your habitation; there shall no evil befall you; neither shall any plague come near your dwelling. He will give His angels charge over you to keep you in all your ways. They shall lift you up in their hands so that you do not stub your toe on a stone.”

“Where,” I said, “would angels fear to tread?” The obvious answer must be, “Anywhere outside the will of God!”
Since we humans have a more precarious situation in our creation than do they; and since we are a little lower than the Angels, should we also not fear to walk anywhere outside the will of God?

The promise for the Angels and for our protection is within the boundaries of God’s will. “Because you have made the Lord…your habitation:” the place wherein you live.

Oh, I like this. I agree with you. Your piece would be a nice addition to my own submission. I like the correlation to the question, "Where?"
That is so important. Thank you for making this point.

I enjoyed reading this. Godbless

This is an interesting sermonette. It gives me a lot to think about.

When you quote a Bible verse you may want to put it in italics and cite the translation you used.

This is my favorite line. It really hits your message home: “Where,” I said, “would angels fear to tread?” The obvious answer must be, “Anywhere outside the will of God!”
