The Truth About Angels
To the Reader
This book deals with a subject of worldwide interest. In unprecedented numbers, television programs feature purported accounts of angel involvement in human affairs. Tabloid newspapers publish stories about numerous reported sightings of extraterrestrial visitors. Bookstores display shelf after shelf of volumes dealing with the supernatural, and sales are brisk. In every land people are asking questions such as, if angels actually exist, who are they? Are they the spirits of the dead? Are they friendly or hostile? Can they communicate with us?
Most answers given by
authorities do not satisfy the sincere seeker for truth. Many of the answers represent mere speculation. Some are purposely sensational. Others are based on false interpretations of scripture.
By contrast, the present volume is filled with inspired information. It offers answers grounded firmly in the word of god. It not only sets forth the truth about angels, but, we believe, will lead the reader into a deeper spiritual experience.
The first chapter provides a general overview of the existence and activities of beings in the unseen world. The second chapter illustrates a few of the numerous ways in which angels are involved in the personal lives of human beings. Beginning with chapter 3, the book sets forth in historical sequence a galaxy of events and experiences in which angels have been major players. It begins with the rebellion of lucifer in heaven before the creation of this world and concludes with the role of angels in the great hereafter.
This volume is a priceless resource book, but it is much more than that; it is a book that lifts the veil between the seen and the unseen world. It reveals angel involvement in events that secular historians recorded but could not explain, and gives the reader the feeling that he or she is an eyewitness of these events--an exciting experience indeed!
We believe that this book will be prized by seekers of truth all over the world, that it will help them recognize counterfeit manifestations of spirits, and that in their daily walk with god it will lead them to seek and enjoy the fellowship of holy angels.
