The notion that Angels exist in our midst, as stated in my last three Blog posts, has caused much consternation in religious circles as well as among atheists. Everyone, including me, had assumed that Angels all reside in heaven, and visit the earth only periodically. That a neighbor, co-worker, relative or spouse can be an Angel in human form seems incomprehensible. Even more incomprehensible is the idea that they would choose to live on earth rather than in the comforts of heaven.
Angels choose to live on earth in order to be elevated to a higher office or position. Being an Angel is similar to being an employee, subject to a hierarchical organizational structure. When an Angel seeks to be promoted, the path to promotion always leads through service, and many of them choose to fulfill their service obligations on the earth.
Angels who choose to come to the earth are at greater risk because they become subject to Satan and to sin. More importantly, if for any reason they knowingly fail to complete their mission, in so doing, they have communicated to God that they prefer to fulfill Satan's agenda. Angels who knowingly deceive God and betray their mission and purpose must face the same consequences as for blasphemy that has not been forgiven. At the end of their lives, they immediately enter Satan's service and their decision becomes irreversible. No restitution is required to be paid, as is paid in the case of blasphemy (see Angels, Part 2).
Living outside of the will and purpose of God has serious consequences not only for Angels, but also for ordinary humans. God sends a soul into the earth when he determines that a need on the earth has gone or will go unfulfilled. The soul's purpose is to fulfill that need, and God empowers every soul to fulfill its mission and purpose. If it becomes clear that a soul will fail to fulfill its mission and purpose, God sends a second soul whose mission is to fulfill it. In this manner, God provides for every need.
Humans often fail to have their needs met because they knowingly or unknowingly reject God's provision. The Israelites were a perfect example of this dysfunction because they frequently pleaded with God to save them, yet repeatedly rejected the warnings and the advice of God's prophets.
Today, the relationship with God evidences the same degree of dysfunction. One cannot claim to need God's intervention, yet wholeheartedly reject his every attempt to provide, preferring instead to substitute your judgment and your solution. If you are not certain that the answer before you is God's answer to your prayer, stop and ask him, "Is this your answer to my prayer?" Ask the question three times to confirm that you are hearing from God.
When Judgment Day arrives, God will judge the souls in part on the basis of whether or not they had fulfilled their Godly mission and purpose for being on the earth. The souls that failed to fulfill their mission will forfeit their reward for being in God's service and will not inherit the blessings of the kingdom of God. They may be in the kingdom of God, but they will not have equity in the kingdom.
Angels or any other person who desires to know their precise mission and purpose for being on the earth should first ask to be filled with God's indwelling Holy Spirit. Only then can they be certain to identify their Godly mission, as opposed to Satan's mission and purpose for them. God will judge the souls who knew their mission and purpose, yet deliberately chose not to fulfill it. The judgment for Angels is as stated in paragraph 3 above. God desires that every soul live into its mission and purpose.
