Welcome and thanks for reading.  In Angels 1-3 we read that Angels are ministering spirits sent to serve the be-
lievers.  One way that angels serve believers is to audibly deliver a message from God.  Another way that angels
serve believers is to protect them.

In the following scriptures, we will read about a different way that angels are used by God.

2 Samuel 24:15-16  So the Lord sent a plague on Israel from the morning until the time designated, and 70,000
of the people from Dan to Beersheba died.  When the ANGEL STRETCHED OUT HIS HAND TO DESTROY
JERUSALEM the Lord was grieved because of the calamity and said to the angel who was afflicting the people,
“Enough!  Withdraw your hand.”

2 Kings 19:35  That night the ANGEL OF THE LORD WENT OUT AND PUT TO DEATH A HUNDRED AND EIGHTY-
FIVE THOUSAND MEN in the Assyrian camp.

Psalms 78:49  He unleashed against them his hot anger, his wrath, indignation and hostility – A BAND OF DE-
STROYING ANGELS.  He prepared a path for his anger;  HE DID NOT SPARE THEM FROM DEATH BUT GAVE THEM
OVER TO THE PLAGUE.  HE STRUCK DOWN ALL THE FIRST BORN OF EGYPT.

Acts 12:23  Immediately, because Herod (Roman King) did not give praise to God, AN ANGEL OF THE LORD
STRUCK HIM DOWN, and he was eaten by worms and died.

As we have just read, Angels are also used to bring GODS JUDGEMENT AND DESTRUCTION on large groups of
people or on individuals.

Thank you so much for reading.  God bless.
