A17 Smiting Angels
Do God’s holy angels really kill people? How do we understand the story of the angel that smote 185000 Assyrian soldiers? Does Christ truly speak the words “These people must die for now, go and execute them!” Did Jesus hide this part of the character of God when He came to this earth? Jesus never executed anyone while here. If executing people is part of His character then why did He not reveal this while here on earth? For the Son of man is not come to destroy men's lives, but to save them. Luke 9:56 John 14:9 Jesus saith unto him, Have I been so long time with you, and yet hast thou not known me, Philip? he that hath seen me hath seen the Father; and how sayest thou then, Shew us the Father?
