The theme for today’s daily devotional by David Jeremiah is ”Angels in Heaven”
Scripture: I looked, and I heard the voice of many angels around the throne, the living creatures, and the elders; and the number of them was ten thousand times ten thousand, and thousands of thousands.
Eschatology is the study of the last things, and the most eschatologically focused book of the Bible is Revelation. And guess what Revelation mentions more than any other book of the Bible: angels. Angels are mentioned in Revelation more than seventy times.
While there are many reasons to anticipate a future in heaven, one is often overlooked: the opportunity to witness the reality and presence of the innumerable angels who have served God and His people for eons. We may even encounter an angel that was sent to minister to us in a time of need! God through Jesus Christ has taken away the fear of death for all who belong to Him (Hebrews 2:14-15). Just as God has a fiery destination prepared for “the devil and his angels” (Matthew 25:41), so God has prepared a wondrous destination for His angels and for those who belong to Christ (Hebrews 12:22).
If you belong to God through faith in Christ, your future is with God and His angels in heaven. Thank God today for that promise!
Why shouldest thou be afraid to die, who hopest to live by dying!
