DAILY SCRIPTURE:

GUARDIAN ANGELS:

Gracethrufaith.com

Thank you for your insights, as always.

QUESTION:   Is there any information on guardian angels and their roles? Specifically, angels who watch over us individually on a one-to-one basis. The only scriptural reference that I think might allude to this has to do with the childrens’ angels being in heaven and beholding God’s face (Matt. 18:10-11). If this is a reference to guardian angels, does that mean that they are always in heaven, and not on earth beside us? Since we now have the Holy Spirit, does that mean we no longer have these guardian angels?

ANSWER:   The clearest reference to guardian angels is the passage from Matt. 18 that you quoted. There the context is children. It’s apparently no problem for an angel to be in Heaven in one instant and here the next. Otherwise they wouldn’t be much help to our children would they?

Hebrews 1:14 says, “Are not all angels ministering spirits sent to serve those who will inherit salvation?” and Hebrews 13:2 admonishes us to be kind to strangers because for all we know they could be angels.

From these passages we can reasonably conclude that angels are among us all the time helping and protecting us in unseen ways. One of the great eye-openers of all time will be when we get to heaven and see just how often we’ve been shielded, protected and assisted by these warriors of God without even knowing it.

GUARDIAN ANGELS FOR CHILDREN?

QUESTION:   In one of your answers you said children have guardian angels. What is their purpose, if this is true? I keep hearing more and more on the news of small children, even babies being sexually molested. Where is the protector, the guardian? What, then, is the role of the guardian angel? I do believe in angels but I do not believe in guardian angels as being an angel who is with someone 100% of the time no matter what the age simply because of the molestation of children that is on the increase in this world.

ANSWER:   The idea of guardian angels for children comes from Matt. 18. Using a child as an example the Lord said,

“But if anyone causes one of these little ones who believe in me to sin, it would be better for him to have a large millstone hung around his neck and to be drowned in the depths of the sea” (Matt. 18:6).

And in verse 10 He said,

“See that you do not look down on one of these little ones. For I tell you that their angels in heaven always see the face of my Father in heaven.”

To me that means their role is to observe and report any mistreatment so the perpetrators can be held accountable, not necessarily to prevent it. It was a warning to adults.

HOW CAN ANGELS AND HUMANS HAVE CHILDREN?

QUESTION:   I found your site by accident, and I’m glad I did since you address questions about Nephilim. One questioner asked how angels and humans could have sexual relations, which has been my question, i.e. how angels can produce sperm.

Your answer was that they assumed human form to do so. I can see how that could happen, but it would seem that the genetic DNA transferred from such a union would be as human as the form they assumed (or possessed). Neither case would seem to allow the transfer of angelic DNA – and indeed there is no such thing. Right?

I’m still not understanding how they transferred their angelic/demonic physical, emotional, and spiritual traits by assuming human form to have coitus. I am a true seeker, and I agree that the Sons of God are angels; but how did they physically transfer the corrupted angelic traits to humans via coitus? I don’t get it.

Thank you very much for answering my question.

ANSWER:   Not being a medical person, I’m not qualified to answer your question from the physiological standpoint. (As I think of it, I’m not sure anyone is.) All I know is that in Genesis 6:4 the Bible clearly states that angels married human women and had children that the Bible calls Nephilim, or fallen ones. And it also hints that these angels assumed human form to do so. (Jude 6)

These children had supernatural abilities and from what little historical information we can gather might have just about taken over the whole world.

Extra biblical sources like the Book of Enoch tell of Satan manipulating both human and animal gene pools back then so perhaps the answer to your question has a supernatural component.

ANGELS MATING WITH HUMANS:

QUESTION:   I just had a question come to mind after you said ” Genesis 6:1-7 tells us that after sin entered the creation, certain fallen angels mated with human women to produce a hybrid race called the Nephilim,”. Would you know why fallen angels no longer mate with human women?

ANSWER:   From Jude 1:6 we learn that inter-marriage between angels and humans is forbidden by God because it produces a hybrid race that is neither angel nor human. In Genesis 6 these hybrids were called the nephilim, which means “fallen ones”. Extra-Biblical sources tell us they had many supernatural abilities, which they used to lead humankind astray, and were a major cause of the Great Flood that destroyed all but 8 humans who had remained genetically pure.

According to 2 Peter 2:4 and Jude 1:6 the angels who had fathered the Nephilim were bound in chains for their disobedience and are being held for judgment. This apparently discouraged any further disobedience.

——————————–

QUESTION:   I have got to ask this question about angels mating with humans. The Bible says in heaven we are neither married or given in marriage. [Mark 12:25] There is neither male or female in heaven [Galatians 3:28] That being known; Why would the angels have the ability to reproduce with anything, let alone humans? It seems contradictory, to have angels mating with anything let alone producing Nephilims to run about.

ANSWER:   You’re correct about Mark 12:25, but in Galatians 3:28 Paul was not saying there is neither male nor female in Heaven. He was saying that once we are in Christ God no longer thinks of us as being Jewish or Gentile, slave or free, male or female, but as all being one in Christ. He wasn’t referring to our heavenly forms but to His perception of us on Earth.

Also, Jude 1:6 tells us the angels who sinned abandoned their origins. That means they no longer kept the form given to angels in Heaven and instead took on the form of humans on Earth. This is something angels have the ability to do, but only under God’s direction for the purpose of ministering to us (Hebrews 1:14). Having human form gave them the ability to mate with human women.

The Bible is very clear on this. Genesis 6:2 says, “The sons of God (angels) saw that the daughters of men were beautiful and they married any of them they chose.” Then Genesis 6:4 tells us, The Nephilim were on the Earth in those days – and also afterward – when the sons of God went to the daughters of men and had children by them.”

———————————

QUESTION:   Recently a subject came up about the sex of angels in our bible study. They said according to Jesus after we get to heaven we would be like the angels neither marrying or being given in marriage. This led them to say that angels are “sexless”. However in Genesis we see the fallen angels comingling with humans with the Nephlim resulting. Any angel in scripture has a male name, so is there an answer?

ANSWER:   The idea that since angels don’t marry they are are sexless, and therefore when we’re in heaven we’ll be sexless because we won’t be marrying is merely a human assumption. The truth is we just don’t know.

We do know that Genesis 6:1-4 clearly describes angels (sons of God) and humans (daughters of men) intermarrying and having offspring called nephilim. So the question is, how did they do that? In Jude 1:6 we get the answer. It says these angels kept not their first estate (the Greek word means beginning or origin) and left their own habitation (this Greek word refers to the dwelling place of their spirit). It means these angels ceased being the entity they originally were created to be and became a different entity.

Putting 2 and 2 together we can see that they left their heavenly bodies and took on human bodies, something angels have the capability of doing in order to become visible to mankind.

(In Judges 13 the parents of Samson repeatedly referred to the angel of the Lord as a “man of God”. Hebrew 13:2 tells us some people who have been kind to strangers have actually entertained angels without knowing it.)

Having human bodies gave them the ability to have sex with human women. This was an act that so angered the Lord that He rounded them up and put them in chains to be held for judgment (Jude 1:6, 2 Peter 2:4).

MOSSAD CHIEF: IRAN ‘CLOSER THAN EVER BEFORE’ TO ISRAEL’S BORDERS

By Judah Ari Gross – https://www.timesofisrael.com/mossad-chief-iran-closer-than-ever-before-to-israels-borders/

At event honoring espionage service, top spy Yossi Cohen says agents conduct ‘thousands of operations,’ some deep in enemy countries

The head of the Mossad intelligence service warned on Monday that Iran, through its proxies, is operating closer “than ever before” to Israel’s borders with Lebanon and Syria, though he also said Israel was operating deep in enemy territory.

Spy chief Yossi Cohen said that in addition to arming the terrorist groups Hezbollah and Hamas, the Islamic Republic was working to develop its own nuclear capabilities with the goal of weaponizing them.

Cohen made his remarks at a ceremony in which six teams from the espionage service received a special commendation from Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu. Due to the sensitivity of the operations, the details of the teams’ activities were kept secret.

However, the spymaster said that the ones chosen were representative of the type of missions the service is capable of carrying out.

According to Cohen, the intelligence service “carries out hundreds, thousands of activities every year – some of them complicated and deep within the heart of enemy countries.”

The comments were something of a rarity, as Cohen does not often speak in public forums.

He said his intelligence service is “focused only on the top national, security and political priorities.”

First on that list is Iran, according to Cohen.

Tehran “continues with its vision of [obtaining] a significant nuclear capability, which is meant to lead it to a military nuclear capability,” he said.

Under the 2015 Iran deal, the Islamic Republic is permitted to continue with civilian nuclear research, which uses radioactive material that has been enriched to a much lower degree than that used for military purposes.

In his speech, Cohen did not allege that Iran was violating the 2015 deal, known as the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action.

However, the spy chief said Tehran was fostering unrest in the region.

“Iran continues to work with increasing military aggression in the Middle East, closer to our borders than ever before,” Cohen said, as Netanyahu looked on with apparent approval.

“Iran continues to support terrorist groups, Hezbollah and recently Hamas. Iran continues to work to transfer advanced – and accurate – weaponry to terror groups within our region,” he said.

Cohen’s  comments appeared to confirm recent military assessments that Tehran was outfitting Hezbollah with precise missiles that are meant to be used in a future war with Israel.

Jerusalem has also long been concerned that Iran-backed Shiite militias were entrenching themselves along the Syrian border with the Golan Heights. Israel’s attempts to convince Russia and the United States to make their removal a requirement in a ceasefire in Syria have reportedly not yet succeeded.

In addition to Iran, the Mossad chief also pointed to the Islamic State terrorist group as an ongoing threat to not only Israel, but the entire world.

“Islamic State is continuing to challenge us,” Cohen said.

He noted that the terrorist group, which is also known by its Arabic nickname, Daesh, was trying to “harm us and, no less importantly, our friends in the world.”

To handle those threats, Cohen said, the intelligence service was improving itself.

“The Mossad is getting stronger, with new capabilities in order to advance the future appearance of the world, with new technologies, with intelligence systems, with new forces, with human resources – all of this in order to be prepared for the challenges before us,” he said.

“The winners of the prime minister’s prize display the best within us and show to what lengths the Mossad, its people and its fighters can reach,” Cohen said.

YEMEN’S HOUTHI REBELS THREATEN TO ATTACK ISRAEL WITH MISSILES

https://www.debka.com/yemens-houthi-rebels-threaten-attack-israel-missiles/

Israel heard a new threat this week from an entirely new quarter, Yemen’s rebel Houthis. Their military spokesman, Col, Aziz Rashid, said Sunday, Oct. 1, in reference to Israeli bases in Eritrea: “Israel’s military bases in Africa are within range of Houthi missiles,” adding, if necessary, “Our forces would soon have missiles capable of reaching Israel itself.”

He did not need to spell out where those missiles come from. It is no secret that the Houthis are amply armed and supplied with intermediate range ballistic missiles from a single source, their sponsor, Iran.

Interestingly, the spokesman mentioned missiles able to cover the 1,720km distance between northern Yemen and the Israeli port of Eilat. However, according to DEBKAfile’s military sources, the Yemeni insurgents don’t have missiles with that sort of range. Tehran has given them Borkan-1 and Borkan-2 tactical ballistic missiles, whose ranges are respectively 800km and 1,400km. Both are short of the distance to Israel.

In the past year, the Houthis fired a number of missiles into neighboring Saudi Arabia, leader of the coalition fighting their insurgency. Some were aimed at the capital Riyadh. Two fell short near the Yemeni border and one hit a military target outside the Saudi capital. But most of the others were either intercepted by Saudi anti-missile defenses or exploded on open ground far wide of target.

While Israel has no reason to fear an Iranian missile attack on its soil by Yemeni insurgents as yet,  its Red Sea shipping is definitely vulnerable to the P-20 (Chinese Silkworm) shore-to-ship weapon, a kind of cruise missile, which the Houthis have available for shooting at the Israeli war fleet and merchant vessels sailing in the Red Sea to and from the Gulf of Aqaba.

Exactly a year ago, a Houthi missile struck a United Arab Emirate warship and set it on fire. Ten days later, on Oct. 10, they launched missiles against the USS Mason destroyer and drew an American retaliatory blow to their missile batteries.

More recently, on September 14, the Houthi leader, Abdulmalek Badruddin Al-Houthi, declared that the UAE is within his forces’ missile range. He noted that he spoke from experience after a successful test launch at the oil emirates, which is 1,500km away. He did not say when the test took place or which missiles were fired. But he went on to boast that his army possessed drones capable of cruising through Saudi air space.

The Houthi spokesman’s threat Sunday of a missile attack on Israel was the second time in a month that the Yemeni insurgents had referred to new Iranian long-range missiles for attacking a nation accused of siding with Saudi Arabia.

They claim Israel has become involved in the Yemen war by providing the Saudis with intelligence from its reconnaissance fleet which is based at the Eritrean port of Assab just 97km across the sea from the Yemeni coast.

Israel has never acknowledged those bases, but foreign sources began reporting in 2012 the discovery of Israeli war ships and submarines in permanent berths at Assab port, as well as an early warning station built there.

MASSACRE IN LAS VEGAS: OUR FATHER IS GRIEVING WITH US

58 dead and another 500 wounded or injured.

By Jim Denison – http://www.christianpost.com/news/massacre-in-las-vegas-our-father-is-grieving-with-us-201305/

A gunman opened fire last night at a music concert in Las Vegas. More than fifty people were killed and more than four hundred were injured. This is the worst mass shooting in US history.

Here’s what we know so far.

The Route 91 Harvest country music festival was taking place across the road from the Mandalay Bay Resort and Casino, near McCarran International Airport on the south side of the Las Vegas Strip. The gunman opened fire from a perch high up in the Mandalay Bay casino.

Police are now confirming that the main suspect is dead. Stephen Paddock, age sixty-four, was a resident of Mesquite, Nevada. He was apprehended on the thirty-second floor of Mandalay Bay, where he died. Las Vegas Sheriff Joe Lombardo does not believe there are any more shooters.

Authorities just announced that they have located Marilou Danley, a woman who was traveling with Paddock before the shooting. The victims have not yet been identified. They include two police officers who were on duty and were shot. One is in critical condition. According to the sheriff, other officers who were off duty were shot and killed at the concert.

Our first question is whether this was an act of terrorism. Sheriff Lombardo told reporters that he did not believe it was. He added that “because it’s an ongoing investigation, we don’t know what his belief system was at this time,” but the suspect has no known terrorist connections.

Not much else is known about Stephen Paddock at this hour. He was a white male and was not a military veteran. He had no criminal convictions in Nevada or run-ins with Mesquite police. He lived in a retirement community and apparently acted alone. Marilou Danley lived with him.

I am writing this Daily Article with a grieving heart, just as I am sure you are reading it in stunned disbelief and sadness as well. I hate that we live in a world where a single person can inflict such horrific pain. I hate that our world is so unpredictable that what happened last night in Las Vegas could happen anywhere at any time. I hate this feeling of impotence, this sense that we can do nothing to prevent such atrocities from continuing. I know you feel the same way.

But I also know that our Father is grieving with us.

The Creator of the universe is a Father who loves his children so much that his Son died for us (Romans 5:8). He feels all that we feel, including our pain and grief (John 11:35). “The Lord is near to the brokenhearted” (Psalm 34:18). 

He wants us to “weep with those who weep” (Romans 12:15), but he also wants us to do all we can to heal our broken world. If we give up, the criminals win. If we give up, Satan wins. He was “a murderer from the beginning (John 8:44) who “comes only to steal and kill and destroy,” but Jesus “came that they may have life and have it abundantly” (John 10:10).

John Wesley: “Do all the good you can, by all the means you can, in all the ways you can, in all the places you can, at all the times you can, to all the people you can, as long as ever you can.” Never give up. The more our world despairs, the more it needs the hope of Jesus.

One last word: When the shooting occurred, Las Vegas Mayor Carolyn Goodman tweeted, “Pray for Las Vegas.” Please do so, right now.

LAS VEGAS TERROR

Bill Wilson – www.dailyjot.com 

An outdoor country western concert in Las Vegas turned deadly as a shooter rained down bullets on the crowd, leaving at least 58 dead and another 500 wounded or injured. Police found the suspected gunman, Stephen Paddock, on the 32nd floor of the Mandalay Bay Hotel, cornered him and shot him dead. While little is known about Paddock, 64, at this time, it is not expected that he is part of any militant organization and he is considered a “lone wolf” shooter. He is a resident of Nevada. Authorities are seeking insight into what motivated Paddock to his hateful and deadly act. Prayers go out to those in Vegas.

Surely all the leftists will be demanding guns be taken away from the citizenry-which is their pat response to any violence involving a gun. Maybe they should look at the cities with the highest gun murder rates, and who is running those cities, and that these cities also have the most restrictive gun laws in the nation. The answer isn’t banning guns. The answer goes far deeper than that. The atmosphere of the country has become violent. Television, movies, video games seem to be obsessed with death and violence. The political climate is also aggressively visceral. The news, as well as its reporters and commentators, is clothed in violence, strife, social envy, racism, bigotry, name calling, and incivility.

And so we have this picture of America and no one knows the number of people who cannot handle the pressure. They are empty, angry people, and no one knows who they are until they snap. They snap in many ways–Could be radical Islam where they are weaponized by hate and false religion; could be militant hate organizations brainwashing people to think and do awful things; could be just someone who is unstable and thinks and acts on the unthinkable. This is where we are today as a nation where we should be circumspect about where we go, how we go and what we do in public. Vegas is a reminder of the dark and dying world and the threat it is to living life in freedom and safety.

What is our answer to these types of events that are increasingly occurring? First, prayer. Then action. Jesus told us in Matthew 5:13-16, “You are the salt of the earth: but if the salt have lost his savor, wherewith shall it be salted? It is thenceforth good for nothing, but to be cast out, and to be trodden under foot of men. You are the light of the world…Let your light so shine before men, that they may see your good works, and glorify your Father which is in heaven.”

As Christians, we cannot be looking inward and still be doing what the Lord expects of us. God’s love overcomes hate, fear, trepidation. We can make a difference in this world by reaching out to others. If it results in changing just one person’s life, it could save hundreds in many different ways-physically or spiritually. Share your salt and light with someone today.

GOD’S WORD HAS NOT CHANGED

By Daymond Duck Published on: October 1, 2017 by RRadmin7 Category:Daymond Duck, General Articles

The UN International Day of Peace, the Jewish year 5777 and the Great Revelation 12 Sign have come and gone, but God’s Word has not changed. This article will focus upon three very important signs that are still very much with us: Birth pains, the peace negotiations and the battle of Gog and Magog.

Birth Pains

When asked about the signs of His coming, Jesus mentioned the deception of false Christs, wars and rumors of wars, famine, pestilence and earthquakes (Matt. 24:4-7). He called these things “the beginning of sorrows.” The Greek word translated “sorrows” means travail (labor pains or birth pangs).

Birth pains increase in frequency and intensity as the birth of a child nears. The idea is that sorrows or travail (deception, war, famine, pestilence and earthquakes) will become more severe (closer together and more intense) as the Second Coming draws near.

Some believe that this is happening now. Consider the following reports in the first 30 days after the August 21, 2017 total solar eclipse that some said was a warning from God for U.S. citizens to repent:

Aug. 21-31, dozens of small earthquakes in Yellowstone National Park. Aug. 25, Hurricane Harvey hit Texas. Aug. 30, Hurricane Harvey hit Louisiana. Sept. 2-6, dozens of small earthquakes in Idaho. Sept. 3, 229,000 acres have burned in California this year. Sept. 6, 250,000 acres have burned in Oregon this year. Sept. 6, Hurricane Irma hit the Caribbean. Sept. 6, Hurricane Irma passed near and badly damaged Puerto Rico. Sept. 6, Hurricane Irma hit the U.S. Virgin Island. Sept. 10, Hurricane Irma hit the U.S. Florida Keys. Sept. 10, Hurricane Irma hit the state of Florida. Sept. 10, wildfires have burned one million acres in Montana this year. Sept. 12, Hurricane Irma hit Georgia and South Carolina. Sept. 19, Hurricane Maria hit the Caribbean. Sept. 20, Hurricane Maria hit Puerto Rico.

If we include Mexico (a nation on the North American Continent), we can add:

On Sept. 8, an 8.1 earthquake hit Mexico. On Sept. 9, Hurricane Katia hit Mexico. On Sept. 19, a 7.1 earthquake hit Mexico City. On Sept. 22, a 6.1 earthquake. On Sept. 23, a 4.5 earthquake.

Consider this: The names of Hurricanes Jose and Maria are Spanish. The English equivalent is Joseph and Mary. While the Revelation 12 Sign (Virgo and Leo: Virgin and Jesus; First and Second Coming) was in the heavens for the first time in 6,000 years, Jose and Maria (Joseph and Mary) were impacting each other on earth.

Can anyone but God arrange this in the heavens and on earth?

The Peace Negotiations

On Sept. 22, 2017, White House Correspondent and Bible prophecy teacher, William Koenig, said the following about President Trump’s Middle East Peace Plan (http://watch.org):

It is compromised of the following elements: a U.S. coalition of Sunni countries with Israel to oppose Iran, while calling on the Sunnis to normalize relationships with Israel; expecting Arabs to force Abbas to accept a peace plan with Israel; and requiring Israel to give up most of Judea, Samaria and maybe parts of East Jerusalem.

Trump is motivating Egyptian President el-Sisi and possibly King Abdullah of Jordan to get involved in the Israeli-Palestinian talks, with the inducement of U.S. foreign aid to two countries in great economic need, as well as providing much needed military equipment. Moreover, they have the Saudis and other Sunni countries supporting a U.S./Sunni/Israel coalition out of great concerns over Iran. This follows President Trump’s Sept. 18 statement, “I think there is a good chance it could happen.”

Also, Egyptian Pres. el-Sisi’s Sept. 22 appeal to the Palestinian people said to “be ready to coexist with the Israelis in safety and peace to achieve stability and security for all” (see 1Thess. 5:3).

Notice that while President Trump was talking about his peace plan on Sept. 18, 2017, the very powerful Hurricane Maria was moving in on the Caribbean, including Puerto Rico, and the devastating earthquake hit Mexico (see Joel 3:2).

The Battle of Gog and Magog

In late Aug. 2017, Israel advised the White House that it is nearing the end of its diplomatic efforts to stop Iran from stationing of troops and building bases and factories in Syria.

On Aug. 30, 2017, Russia warned Israel “not to authorize an attack on Iranian military facilities in Syria.”

On Sept. 1, 2017, it was reported that Israel has notified the world to stop Iran’s buildup in Syria or “Israel will take military action.”

On or around Sept. 20, 2017, Russia advised the U.S. in a secret meeting that Russia will respond with force if the Syrian army or Russian assets are fired upon by U.S. proxies (possibly including Israel).

On Sept. 22, 2017, Israel destroyed an Iranian-backed Hezbollah weapons convoy near Damascus.
