There are many questions we all have about angels: What exactly is an angel and where does it rank in the created order? What earthly purposes do these heavenly beings have? What are they doing right now and what were they doing before the world began? In part 2 of “Angels,” Dr. Sproul answers these questions as he looks at a day in the life of Elisha, the man of God, and his encounter with the heavenly hosts in 2 Kings, chapter six.
Scripture is full of personal encounters between people and angels. In many cases the angels appeared in the form of men. Then there were other times when they remained invisible—to some that is—but their ministry was easily recognized by Elisha and then later the Lord Himself during His earthly ministry. In this message, Dr. Sproul teaches us about the ministerial role angels had during the days of Elisha and later in the life and ministry of Jesus.
