The world is fascinated with angels. Most think they are fictional characters. The truth is they are as real as you and I. They are spiritual beings God created. One of the most well-known Bible verses about angels can be found in Psalm 34:7. It reads,
” The angel of the Lord encamps around those who fear him, and he delivers them.”
This scripture is often the center of disagreement among theologians. They first notice and discuss the single “angel” in this scripture. Can a single angel encamp around or surround those who fear the Lord? They are incredibly strong the bible says (Ps. 103:20). Or perhaps the one angel is actually a representative of a host of angels.
Another view-point is that this “angel of the Lord” is the pre-incarnate Jesus Christ. Through out the Old testament theologians have pointed out where Jesus has shown up and with the holy scriptures calling him The Angel of the Lord. You must also realize the word angel means messenger.
What ever view-point you take regarding this scripture, we must not forget what is really important here. The important thing is that those who fear the Lord are surrounded with protection and are delivered! No need to walk in fear for you are protected, amen!
