Angels in the Life of Christ
"Everything we believe about Jesus Christ depends on God's integrity and the faithfulness of His messengers.
Two witnesses or messengers in the Bible times were required to authenticate the accuracy and validate the message. The sender expected the messenger to accurately communicate his message with the utmost integrity. Any change in the message would result in criminal charges against the messenger.
God uses human and supernatural messengers. "God, after He spoke long ago to the fathers in the prophets in many portions and in many ways, in these last days has spoken to us in His Son, whom He appointed heir of all things, through whom also He made the world. And He is the radiance of His glory and the exact representation of His nature, and upholds all things by the word of His power. When He had made purification of sins, He sat down at the right hand of the Majesty on high" (Hebrews 1:1-3 (NASB95).
The messengers all pointed to the coming of the final ultimate self-revelation of God in the person of His own unique one of a kind Son.
I. Angels are God's Messengers
The Bible tells us that God has messengers whom He sends forth to communicate His message. The word aggelos, angels in English, describes a supernatural order of heavenly beings whose assignment is to act as God's messengers to men, and as agents to carry our His will. "Are they not all ministering spirits, sent out to render service for the sake of those who will inherit salvation?" (Hebrews 1:14, NASB95).
Angels have personality, great intelligence, moral will and responsibility. They do not have bodies, but may be seen at times and appear as men. They do not have wings; artists and Hollywood created the wings. The Seraphim have six wings and fly, but they are a special category of supernatural servants. The Bible forbids worship of angels. They belong to the heavenly court praising God and doing His will on earth.
Gabriel is found in Daniel 8:15-16; 9:21 where he was sent to explain to Daniel the vision of the ram and the he-goat and to predict the 70 weeks. In the New Testament Gabriel is the messenger who announced the birth of John the Baptist and Jesus in Luke 1:19, 26. He is not called an archangel in the Bible. He is quite prominent in Jewish writings.
II. Angels in the Life of Christ
Gabriel and unnamed angels are sent to announce the coming of Jesus, to encourage Him after the temptations, minister to Him in the Garden of Gethsemane, help the grieving disciples at the resurrection of Jesus, announce His coming again in Acts, gather the saints and execute judgment to the wicked in Revelation.
