Blog Tour ReviewAngels by Dr. David Jeremiah
WaterBrook Multnomah Publishers
Dr. David Jeremiah's new book, Angels is making the Blog Tour rounds this week, and I'm pleased to share a review here.
Do you believe in angels? Even those who don't profess to be Bible believing, born again Christians say that they do. It seems there's always an angel story circulating online or a sighting or a report of an angelic encounter. How do we discern the real deal?
Dr.Jeremiah takes the reader on a journey through scripture that documents the Biblical accounts of who angels are and why they exist. You might call this the A to Z guide on angels, for he shares details about their divine purpose, where they came from, and what we can learn from them. This is of particular importance, he says, in light of the increased demonic activity in this generation.
Using the Bible as a guide, he points out how the purpose of a study of angels is to draw us closer to God. He encourages us to test stories about angels to see if they glorify God in the right way, and help bring salvation. Highlighted also are the attributes of angels; which gives us an example of how to worship and honor Him.
What about the fallen angels? What is their place in God's plan? Knowing the enemy's traits and tactics is important, Jeremiah says, to avoid being deceived by Angels of Light. I like how he covers this area, too, for I think we need to be equipped in this way for the big and little challenges that come our way.
Did you know that the word angel means messenger? We also learn that angels impart strength, guidance, and deliverance for God's people. Now that's something to rejoice about!
Whether you agree or disagree with Dr. Jeremiah's stance on the subject, his well documented research is worthy of consideration. I plan on hanging on to this book and reading it again.
