Gloria, in excelsis Deo!


For my thoughts are not your thoughts, 
neither are your ways my ways,” 
declares the Lord. (Isaiah 55:8 NIV)

 Glory to God in the highest. Christ's birth is announced by heavenly angels. Angels in Shakespeare's plays also appear, but they may well have two legs and walk pendently upon the ground. It is my firm belief that angels are on earth and help realize the mysterious operations of God Almighty—operations forever outside the understanding of men. We are to trust in God (in God we trust) and not worry about figuring out the extent or subliminal means of divine operations. In fact to try to figure them out in over-analysis will indubitably indicate a lack of faith and trust in God—as if man were in control of operations rather than God. Jesus said: “Do you think I cannot call on my Father, and he will at once put at my disposal more than twelve legions of angels?” (Matthew 26:53 NIV). I believe quite literally this was (is) the case but as to the precise nature of these heavenly forces I entirely lack understanding nor wish to speculate about it. I only know that it is true.
