Merry Christmas and the Angels
Source: George A. Filer (Majorstar@aol.com)
Few remember that Angels and their glowing craft had a key role in history
of diverse nations. the Christmas story. Angels are celestial beings
believed to be a messenger or mediator between God and humankind.
In ancient Mesapotomia, ancient Greece, Judaism, Christianity and in Islam
angels were sent as divine messengers to humans to instruct, inform, or
command. An angel visited Mohammed and directed the introduction
of Islam. Angels also function as heavenly warriors and as guardians.
Many abductees claim healing, love and miracles from the angels.
Angels are often called the Sons of God. In traditional Israelite
thought, angels were assumed to have the form of human males, and as a
consequence they were sometimes mistaken for men.
One interesting fact is that the Bible often mentions the angels in Glowing
Metal craft. The Hebrew word 'hashmal' refers to glowing metal in
the description of the divine glory and brightness and the appearance
of fire from the craft. The descriptions of Ezekiel in the Bible
(1:4, 8:2) clearly indicate brilliant highly polished glowing yellow like
brass or electrum an alloy of silver and gold.
The immaculate conception of Mary almost certainly occurred just as the Bible states; "The Holy Spirit will come upon you, and the power of the Most High will overshadow you. So the holy one to be born will be called the Son of God." (Luke 1:35) The immaculate conception could be explained with the use of modern medical technology. The angel Gabriel could have artificially inseminated Mary so that she retained her virginity as the Bible indicates. Jesus would have been the result, and would in fact be the Son of God and the Son of Man (Mary).
The Living Bible states, these are the facts concerning the birth of Jesus Christ. "His mother Mary, was engaged to be married to Joseph. But while she was still a virgin she became pregnant by the Holy Spirit. Then Joseph, her fiancé being a man of stern principle, decided to break the engagement and to do it quietly, as he did not want to disgrace her. As he lay awake considering this, he fell into a dream and saw an angel standing beside him. "Joseph son of David," the angel said, "don't hesitate to take Mary as your wife! For the child within her has been conceived by the Holy Spirit. And she will have a Son and you will name him Jesus (meaning 'Savior') for he will save his people from their sins. This will fulfills God's message through his prophets. Listen! The virgin shall conceive a child! She shall give birth to a Son, and he shall be called 'Emmanuel' (meaning God is with us)" When Joseph awoke, he did as the angel commanded, and brought Mary home to be his wife, but she remained a virgin until her Son was born, and Joseph named him 'Jesus'." (Matthew 1-18 to 25).
"That night some shepherds were in the fields outside the village,
their flocks of sheep. Suddenly an angel appeared among them, and
landscape shone bright with the glory of the Lord. They were badly
frightened, but the angel reassured them. "Don't be afraid!
I bring you the
most joyful news ever announced, and it is for everyone! The Savior-yes
Messiah, the Lord-has been born tonight in Bethlehem! How will you
him? You will find a baby wrapped in a blanket, lying in a manager!
Suddenly the angel was joined by a vast host of others--armies of
heaven-praising God: Glory to God in the highest heaven, they sang, "and
peace on earth for all those pleasing him." When this great
army of angels
had returned again to heaven, the shepherds said to each other.
Let's go to Bethlehem! Let's see this wonderful thing that has happened,
which the Lord has told us about. (Luke 2) The armies of heaven
describe UFOs that are often seen in large numbers.
