Jesus, the Devil, and You, Part 4 of 4 (The Invisible World)

May 27, 2013

An angel declared that Jesus would “save His people from their sins.” Since we can’t save ourselves, that’s really good news. If God didn’t reach out to us, we’d never find Him on our own. In Zechariah 3, the angel of the Lord spoke of clean garments for the high priest, foreshadowing the robe of Christ’s righteousness that admits us into heaven.

One of Satan’s favorite tactics is to whisper to Christians, “See, you sinned! You’re not worthy to get into heaven!” The truth Satan hides when he does this is that believers don’t stand on their own records. They stand on the merits of Jesus. This allows us to deal with the guilt that often paralyzes us. Knowing our place in Christ means we can tell Satan to get lost.

When angels appear in the Bible, it’s often to bring a message from God. An angel told Mary that she would bear the Christ child. Angels spoke in the Old Testament as well. In today’s message, we’ll look at the crucial message that was brought by an angel in Zechariah 3.

A hymn-writer penned these words: “…clothed in His righteousness alone, faultless to stand before the throne.” The Bible tells us that when we become believers in Christ, we’re given new spiritual clothing. The righteousness of Jesus is wrapped around us, making us worthy to stand before a holy God. In today’s message, we’ll see an Old Testament preview of this wonderful truth.

Just because something is invisible doesn’t mean it’s not there. The air we breathe is invisible, and it’s real. Angels are normally invisible as they do God’s work on behalf of the redeemed. But sometimes, God lets us see them, as when Elisha confronted an enemy king’s men. On today’s message, we’ll learn more about angels: the work they do, and what it means as we live in the visible world.

Scientists theorize that there are many dimensions of time and space, and that we on Earth are limited to just one of them. They say, we could see a parallel universe right next to our own if only we could adjust our “sensors” for them. It’s similar in the world of the spirit. In a dimension we can’t normally see is the army of God ready to serve at a moment’s notice.

Normally, angels are God’s invisible agents. They do their work unseen by those of us here on Earth, but on occasion they can be seen, as in the case of Elisha in the Old Testament. Here we get a glimpse of the mighty army of protection God has at His disposal when He chooses to defend even one of His children against harm.

The Greek word for “angel” means “messenger.” Angels took God’s messages to many throughout the Bible. Normally we can’t see angels, but they are there, doing the bidding of God by ministering to the people of God. In this message, we’ll learn about a major part of the invisible world: God’s invisible agents.

Two kingdoms. Two kings. Two value-systems. Two pathways. Two ultimate destinations. In Philippians 3, Paul tells of those who are enemies of the cross of Christ, and how we can discern who is in God’s kingdom, and who is in the world’s kingdom led by Satan. In today’s message, we’ll learn how believers should be motivated to make a difference while they’re still in this world.

Believers in Christ live in two worlds. Augustine called these worlds the City of God and the City of Man. They have opposing values and opposing purposes.  As Christians, we need to bridge the gap between these two worlds so that people can see the power of God and its focus in the cross of Jesus.

Christians live in two worlds: the visible one of everyday life, and the invisible world of the spirit. These two worlds are often in conflict, and so our journey through life isn’t always easy. Making it through that journey requires the motivation to endure it, but where do we find that motivation?
