Just sharing a wonderful hymn with you.This hymn and it's sentiment is very much an encouragement in times of uncertainty and turmoil. Those who walk by faith are, no doubt, Strangers and Pilgrims. This world is not our home. -BW

These all died in 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 11:13

Heaven Is My Home
By: T. R. Taylor
Arr. Lowell Mason

I’m but a stranger here, Heaven is my home;
Earth is a desert drear, Heaven is my home;
Danger and sorrow stand, Round me on every hand;
Heaven is my fatherland, Heaven is my home.

What though the tempest rage, Heaven is my home;
Short is my pilgrimage, Heaven is my home;
Time’s cold and wintry blast, Shall soon be over past;
I shall reach home at last, Heaven is my home.

There at my Saviour's side, Heaven is my home;
I shall be glorified! Heaven is my home;
There are the good and blest, Those I love most and best;
There, too, I soon shall rest, Heaven is my home.

Old School Hymnal, 12th Edition, hymn 389

Some Thoughts On Angels PDF Print E-mail

Below is the answer to a question I received via email.

Question: What are angels and what do they do?

Answer:

Angels are ministering spirits, that is, they minister to us (I believe invisibly most of the time) in times of need (Hebrews 1:14). They are of greater power than are we (at His incarnation, Christ was made LOWER than angels, as a man - Hebrews 2:9). In fact just one angel killed 185,000 Assyrians in one night in Isaiah 37! There are many angels, arguably equally proportional to the number of God's children alive at any given time (Mth 18:10). So many, that they are considered an innumerable company (Hebrews 12:22).

Angels bring messages to God's people (Luke 1:19). They also fight God's battles militarily (Revelation 12:7, Matthew 26:53). Angels also perform certain tasks for God on earth (Jude 1:9). Luke 16:22 indicates that angels carry us to the Lord's presence when we die.

Some angels did indeed rebel against God (ie the angels that sinned) sometime after the creation (2 Peter 2:4). This was probably at the time of the fall of Adam, though we don't know for sure. Nor do we know their names. The "lake of fire" is a place reserved for the devil and his angels (Mth 25:41). It is presumed that these "devil's angels" are those who fell into sin.

According to 1 Timothy 5:21, Angels who did not sin are called "elect angels." They are upright and serve God in Holiness.

Hope these thoughts help.

I received these questions via email...below are my answers.

I was hoping you could impart your thoughts to me on Galatians 3:2 -

1) In what sense is Paul talking about receiving the Spirit?

2) What is meant by the "hearing of faith"?

3) And does this verse at all correlate with Romans 10:17
