Our study on Angels continues with Dr. Don Wilton and were heading to judges sought judges to talk about Angels is on the way. This is a matter fact judges in chapter 3 first Dr. Don Wilton to know where here for you were connecting on our website,, and connecting so many with this wonderful series great awakening biblical truths in perilous times on our website right now. Take a peek GW is our website. That's W like to call us and ask us about it will say it 866-899-WORD 866-899-9673 happy to connect resources but also happy to pray for you, 866-899-WORD 9673 now Dr. Don Wilton founding judges chapter 13 and you might remember Samson, the man with the long hair who serve the Lord will and then failing to 70s hair was cut and the spirit of the Lord lifted. This is a story about the book of Psalms and it is absolutely infiltrated by the presence of one of God's angels limit read chapter 13 in verse one. Again, the Israelites did evil in the eyes of the Lord so the Lord delivered them into the hands of the Philistines for 40 years, a certain man of sora named Manoa from the clan of the day not had a wife he would stare and remain childless. I guess what happened. The angel of the Lord appeared to her and said you are stare and childless. You are going to conceive and have a son now see to it that you drink no one other or other fermented drink, and that you do not eat anything unclean because you will conceive and give birth to a son, no razor may be used on his head because the boy is to be a Nazirite center path to God from birth and he will begin the deliverance of Israel from the hands of the Philistines and the woman went to her husband and told a man of God came to me he looked like an angel of God. Very also. I didn't ask him where he came from and he didn't tell me his life but he said to me, and they are all the instructions that the angel guy that we read them on the site, then Manoa prayed to the Lord, our Lord, I beg you let a man of God you same to us, going to teach us how to bring up the boy who is to be born God heard Manoa at the angel of God came again to the woman while she was out in the field, but her husband, Manoa was not with her, so the women hurried to tell her husband.

He's here, the man who appeared to me the other day, but Noah got up and followed his wife when he came to the man he said are you the one who talk to my wife. I am he said so Manoa Austin when your words often food what is to be the room for the boys life and work. Interesting here with the Rogers we just had a dedication service you drawn for your son that there's a sense in which we were asking Lord, what is your room for Cameron's life and work verse 15 let's go back to verse 13, the angel of the Lord.

Onset your wife must do all that I have told her she must not eat anything that comes from the grapevine, etc. verse 15. Manoa said to the angel of the Lord will we would like you to stay until we prepare a young goat for you. The angel of the Lord replied, even though you detain me, I will not eat any of your food. But if you prepare a burnt offering offered to the Lord.

Manoa did not realize that it was an angel of the Lord, sounds like Hebrews chapter 13 in verse 2000. Be very careful because you just might be entertaining and angel unawares. That's exactly what happened here. Verse 17 then Manoa inquired of the angel of the Lord.

What is your name so that we may honor you when your word comes true.

He replied, why do you ask my name. It is beyond understanding folks we going to discover time without number that angels will not and cannot receive any recognition them so everything they knew points to the Lord Jesus Christ. Everything to God, our heavenly father then Manoa took a young goat, together with the grain offering and sacrifice it on a rock to the Lord and the Lord did an amazing thing. While Manoa needs wife as the flame blazed from the altar toward heaven. By the way.

Anyway one. Anyone wonder where heaven is all right here is another one of those as the sum of this as the flame blazed from the altar toward heaven now look what happens. The angel of the Lord ascended into the flame went up into the flame into heaven. Seeing this below and his wife fill with their faces to the ground. When the angel of the Lord did not show himself again to Manoa and his wife Manoa realized that it was the angel of the Lord. We are doomed to die.

He said to his wife. We have seen God, but his wife owns Manoa if the Lord made to kill us. He would not of accepted a burnt offering and grain offering from our hands will show the these things or told us this woman gave birth to a boy named Samson grew and the Lord blessed him one incredible encounter. Let me just remind you about some of the things that angels do number one they give direct number two lightweight folders number three they follow orders immediately before they mean business number five as we saw last week. They carry out God's judgment all right number six right with God that we going to get into some wonderful things today. Number six, according to God's word angels guide us angels guide us now want to just show you one or two passages could we do that I want everyone here to turn to Genesis chapter 16 let's just turn they very quickly loved to hear those pages turning in the house of God Genesis chapter 16 just to put Genesis 16 in the context you will remember that this has to do with Hagar now Hagar HHG IR Hagar was the lady that Abraham turned to try and carry out the will of God, and it was not the will of God. Remember that God came to Abraham and saved them. Abraham going to be the father of many nations. The name Sarah means to lawful laughter because Sarah locked. She said well this is one for the books. I'm so old is no way that I can conceive and have a child. Abraham was old himself.

They thought this was impossible. Sarah was beyond childbearing age and so of course Abraham being restless and rather wanting to carry out the will of God in the zone of life. He turned to Hagar and took her unto himself and he lay with her and she conceived, and she had a baby called Ishmael, from which we trace the line and lineage of the Arab nations today and we know what happened.

They not listen to what happened to Hagar verse six of chapter 16. The Bible says your servant is in your hands. Abraham said do with her whatever you think best man.

Sarah mistreated Hagar and so she fled from her pocket. I cannot just toss requesting just very quickly though. I don't want any hands raised doing one of these anybody this morning worshiping with us, who has been mistreated.

God Dixie's angels involved.

Watch what happens here in verse seven the angel of the Lord found Hagar near a spring in the days it was the spring that is beside the road to assure he said Hagar servant of Sarah, where have you come from and where you going.

I'm running away from my mistress, Sarah.

She onset in the angel of the Lord told her go back to your mistress and submit to her than the angel added. I will so increase your descendents that they will be too numerous to count. Can you imagine that and then the angel continues that discourse angels guide us.

For me just give you another one. Turnover to Genesis chapter 19 God.

For whatever reason under the heart of God employed his angels to engage in a very sordid time in the history of the world. Well look what happens here in Genesis 19 begin at verse 15 with the coming of dawn, the Angels and by the way Garrett is one of those instances where God dispatched a number of angels urged Lot saying hurry take your wife and your two daughters who are yeah or you will be swept away when the city is punished when he hesitated, the main cross his hand and the hands of his wife, and of these two daughters and he led them watch this now folks, and he led them safely out of the city and the Hebrew text like this. He led them safely out of the city of Sodom and tomorrow on account of all because the Lord had decreed his mercy upon them very important to understand in the Hebrew text, the angel of God to please people who were hesitating. Basically they were arguing with God when he took them and by the hand he actually guided them and leave them out of the city to safety. Why, because God Jehovah had decreed from his royal throne had conferred upon them the dispensation of his mercy. Angels guide us. 9.1 and I just want to kind of put any kind of confusion to been here for a moment if I might .1. I suggested to you from God's word that angels give us direct why because in giving God direction angels on so the three most fundamental questions related to knowing and doing the will of God. One of those questions.

Number one where to go one another and not do the will of God, you got onto that question. Where do I go number two what to do. Number three waiting to go. That is, angels giving us direct action. They can eat into knowing and doing the will of God could be anything more important than knowing God forgive the back with the rest of today's message in just a moment Dr. Don Wilton again. He wants me to remind you here for you taken the calls that 866-899-WORD right now than the broadcast 866-899-9673, but we also have a wonderful system that routes that many of us, even at 2 o'clock in the morning. Anxious to pray with you.

Speak with you connect with resources know that we are here to pray at 866-899-9673 or I mentioned earlier, but this unique series. The great awakening biblical truth in perilous times to one of a message from Dr. Wilson take a peek and see if it might be the perfect fit for where you are emotionally and spiritually.

Right now in this time Times to get this all that activates message with Dr. Don Wilton when angels guide us. It has to do with the ethical handling and working of the nitty-gritty details of knowing and doing the will of God. Let me think on my wife and I would just about Carla not when God called us into the ministry go over details. There is a sense puts it like this.

He says do for those whom I love is saying an angel like you by the hand and guide you through the streets on the highways and byways and the showing details of the working of knowing and doing what so many passages of Scripture are we not going to turn I wish I could take you to Exodus chapter 23 Moses on Mount Sinai. Same thing happened in Numbers 22 the story of Layla and verses 22 through 35. We could go to second Kings chapter 1 read about Elijah we going to do that just now we get time to do that.

Matthew chapter 1 verse 20 Joseph the father, earthly father of the Lord Jesus Christ. Joseph and the angel in Matthew chapter 3 Matthew chapter 1. In acts chapter 10. Almost all of acts chapter 10 verses three through 33.

The story of Cornelius. What we read about.

We read about the angel of God literally taking control and guiding these individuals the intimate details of knowing and doing the will of God.

Three things I want to say about this. The guidance of angels involves number one and alertness to signs and alertness to signs. They get involved somehow in making absolute bringing and alertness and awareness to the signposts that are scattered down the highway of life. They make us aware of that. I'm finding out more and more just how much angels lack because angels cannot be everywhere. I can only do one thing at a time, one step at a time, one moment at a time. The Holy Spirit is everywhere. He operates with everybody at all times because he is God and he breathes in class and he inspires us, and he moves us does the Holy Spirit alert asked to God's signage. Of course he does. But God says I'm going to send an angel to guide number two the guidance of angels involve the acquisition of means, the acquisition of means.

What is that mean that means that Scripture teaches us that the Angels are involved at God's command in not only alerting us to signs. But in the acquisition or the provision of the resources necessary to be able to do what we are told to do. We find that repeatedly right throughout Scripture. The Angels site will there is turn this way you can have that I'm going to give you food, you need to turn around look of your shoulder, there it is. I'm going to give this to you.

I'm going to provide the resources necessary and number three number three the guidance of angels involves attention to detail and outspoken about that. Every turn in the road every turn in the road, while angels guide us. Number seven angels comfort us, folks, this is going to be something that will boggle your mind when it comes to the work and to the ministry that angels perform go back again to Genesis chapter 21. Go to Genesis. Look for get Genesis 21. Go to first Kings go to first Kings chapter 19 we don't have time, go to first Kings chapter 90. Let's go to a different encounter altogether. First Kings chapter 19 listen to the pages of God's book, turning in that wonderful first Kings chapter 19 all right now. Now that you found it. I want you to just look at me for sick rhetorical question, is there anybody worshiping the Lord today who is hurting who is afraid to anybody here today worshiping the Lord is going through some kind of difficulty might be you being shocked beyond reason might be a bomb was just drop right in the middle of your life.

Maybe you are all really, you don't know where to turn to. You don't know how to handle it. Maybe the doctor told you something this week that was news that you didn't want to hear. Look at what happened here in the life of Elijah, chapter 19, the first Kings and I'm going to begin reading at verse three.

Elijah was afraid and ran for his life when he came to be a sheep interview in Judah.

He left the servant they while he himself went a day's journey into the desert, he came to a broom tree sat down unwritten prayed that he might die. Anyone been there before. Listen to this. I have had enough Lord.

He said take my life. I'm no better than my and sisters. He lay down under the tree and fell asleep. What's this all at once, an angel touched him and said get up and eat.

He looked around and thereby his head was a cake of bread baked of the hot coals in the job Walter. He ate and drank and then lay down again.

The angel of the Lord came back a second time and touched him and said get up and eat for the journey is to much for you. So he got up and ate and drank strengthened by that food. He traveled 40 days and 40 nights until he reached Horeb, the mountain of God, where he went into a cave and spent the night now want you to turn with me to Luke's gospel Luke's gospel chapter 22. You must see this for yourself.

This is the most staggering of all the passages dealing with angels and comfort in Luke chapter 222 Jesus Christ is going through the absolute agony of the impending cross we are reading about the cross experience of the Son of Man. This is the Lord Jesus were talking about what happens here Luke 22 in verse 39 Jesus went out as usual to the Mount of others and his disciples followed him. On reaching the place, he said to them, pray that you will not fall into temptation. He withdrew about a stones throw beyond them knelt down and prayed one of the most agonizing prayers, if not the most agonizing pray that you and I will ever read father.

If you are willing, please take this cup, this cup of my suffering this cup of the cross this cup of the sin of the world that comes upon me.

Please take this cup from me.

Yet not my will but yours be done. Now watch what happens. An angel from heaven appeared to him and strengthened him. There are three things about angels and comfort that I want you to know that God speaks to my own heart about this something here that God is saying to us as a church number one, number one, this type of comfort angel comfort is a spoken comfort. Have you ever wondered what to say to somebody when they hurting, or in pain. Marie ever wanted what to say. Angel comfort teaches us something if a spoken comfort.

You see friends, listen sometimes we feel that when we minister to somebody we go to say the right words, we gotta be theological, doctrinal, gotta get written, spoken comfort. Sometimes it's just that word that you say that will bless her heart beyond anything that you live another it's just a spoken word and you're so good at that. I want to commend you as a church number two Angel comfort listen Angel. Comfort is a practical comfort. It's a practical comfort. Listen folks, what the Angels are showing a chair. It's not just what I say it's the company action that follows that that's what the church is all about.

This is what angels were involved in doing and what I believe angels are involved in doing okay.

It is a spoken comfort number two.

It is a practical comfort but there's number three. It is a presence comfort. It is a presence comfort. Now, what did you notice this in this passage. It is remarkable, folks. This is the Lord Jesus Christ Is an Angel in the Time of His Need. The Angel Comes, He Sits down He Says Lee Nothing and Jesus Christ and Strengthened You, Not God Chose Me and Then God Says to Me. Listen Don, You Do Need to Speak Comfort and You Do Need to Follow Your Spoken Word with Practical Help, but Sometimes the Best Strength and Comfort You Can Give to Somebody Is Just Bob Being There for Them Folks Listen Sometimes the Greatest Thing You and I Can Just Be Just Be the Next Presence Comfort Those Times When You Find Yourself in an Untoward Situation. Your Heart Is Hurting. For Example, You Go to a Hospital Bed Sometimes, and Someone Will Be Hurting so Badly Friendless Don't Feel like You've Got to Talk When You Gone That Hospital Room.
