Angels from the Realms of Glory, part 4…

 Ps 103:19 ¶ The LORD has established His throne in the heavens; And His sovereignty rules over all. 20 Bless the LORD, you His angels, Mighty in strength, who perform His word, Obeying the voice of His word! 21 Bless the LORD, all you His hosts, You who serve Him, doing His will. 22 Bless the LORD, all you works of His, In all places of His dominion; Bless the LORD, O my soul! (NASB)

The Lord’s hosts of angels serve Him and perform His Word. They obey His Word.

Angels ministered to our Lord after the days of His temptation – Matt. 4:11.

Mt 4:10 Then Jesus *said to him, “Begone, Satan! For it is written, ‘YOU SHALL WORSHIP THE LORD YOUR GOD, AND SERVE HIM ONLY.'” 11 Then the devil *left Him; and behold, angels came and [began] to minister to Him.

Angels will do the harvesting at the end of this age – Matt. 13:39.

Mt 13:37 And He answered and said, “The one who sows the good seed is the Son of Man, 38 and the field is the world; and [as for] the good seed, these are the sons of the kingdom; and the tares are the sons of the evil [one;] 39 and the enemy who sowed them is the devil, and the harvest is the end of the age; and the reapers are angels. Mt 13:39 and the enemy who sowed them is the devil, and the harvest is the end of the age; and the reapers are angels. 40 “Therefore just as the tares are gathered up and burned with fire, so shall it be at the end of the age. 41 “The Son of Man will send forth His angels, and they will gather out of His kingdom all stumbling blocks, and those who commit lawlessness, 42 and will cast them into the furnace of fire; in that place there shall be weeping and gnashing of teeth. 43 “Then THE RIGHTEOUS WILL SHINE FORTH AS THE SUN in the kingdom of their Father. He who has ears, let him hear.

The above verses are heavy with “healthy” doctrine – “sound” doctrine – read them again – and carefully! Notice the place and environment where the angels will gather together all stumbling blocks and lawless ones. It is out of His Kingdom – out of the saved!

Look at this verse and note who comes with the Son of Man (this term, “Son of Man’ refers to the Messianic title of our Lord. Man was made to have dominion and rule the earth. The first Adam conceded, The Second Adam succeeded.)

Mt 16:24 ¶ Then Jesus said to His disciples, “If anyone wishes to come after Me, let him deny himself, and take up his cross, and follow Me. 25 “For whoever wishes to save his life (in the coming kingdom) shall lose it; but whoever loses his life for My sake (now) shall find it (in the coming kingdom). 26 “For what will a man be profited, if he gains the whole world (now), and forfeits his life(then)? Or what will a man give in exchange for his life? 27 “For the Son of Man is going to come in the glory of His Father with His angels; and WILL THEN RECOMPENSE (The KJV will say “reward.” “Reward” has the connotation of being favorable in English, not so, this word.) EVERY MAN ACCORDING TO HIS DEEDS.

Please notice that the context of this passage is the coming kingdom of our Lord because of the closing phrase in the 28th verse: …the Son of Man coming in His kingdom.” (NASB) And, take note of Colossians 3:25 in connection with every man being “rewarded” in v. 27 above: For he who does wrong will receive the consequences of the wrong which he has done, and that without partiality.
