Calling All Angels

Acts 5:18-21 NIV - They arrested the apostles and put them in the public jail. 19 But during the night an angel of the Lord opened the doors of the jail and brought them out. 20 “Go, stand in the temple courts,” he said, “and tell the people all about this new life.” 21 At daybreak they entered the temple courts, as they had been told, and began to teach the people. 

Acts 10:3-5 NIV - One day at about three in the afternoon he had a vision. He distinctly saw an angel of God, who came to him and said, “Cornelius!” 4 Cornelius stared at him in fear. “What is it, Lord?” he asked. The angel answered, “Your prayers and gifts to the poor have come up as a memorial offering before God. 5 Now send men to Joppa to bring back a man named Simon who is called Peter.

1 Peter 1:12b HCSB - These things have now been announced to you through those who preached the gospel to you by the Holy Spirit sent from heaven.  Angels desire to look into these things. 

In Hebrews, we are warned about the fact we may entertain angels without realizing it.  Whenwe read the New Testament, we see that God’s faithful angels are very involved in world events and in individual ministry.  Angels are ministering spirits that answer to God, not to us.  We do not pray to angels nor worship angelsPeople do not die and become angels.  Angels are a different type of creature.  Yet angels are shown in Scripture to be messengers that will assist the Church in evangelism.  Have we neglected to seek God to send angels to help us evangelize (like He did with those in the Book of Acts)?
