Even in the most technologically advanced time in history, surveys show public belief in angels is as strong as ever. A Harris Interactive Poll recently found that 7 in 10 Americans believe in angels. Gallup reported in 2004 that 78% of adults believe in angels and 9 out of 10 teenagers believe in angels. Whether you believe the Bible or not, it certainly has a lot to say about angels. The word “angel” or its derivative occurs in the Bible almost 300 times. In this message, Dr. Merritt uncovers the myths and truths of angels--their purpose and their work among us and on God's behalf even today.
"Not everyone has a guardian angel. The Bible doesn’t teach that. The Bible does teach that there are guardian angels and the Bible does teach that angels guard and protect, but there is one condition to that. The promise of angelic protection is limited only to those who know God, love God and trust God." --Dr. Merritt
