The Avenging Angels
Painting - Acrylic On Canvas
These divine creatures are spiritual in nature, and possess incredible power, as well as the accumulated wisdom of centuries. Among their other functions are praising God, bringing answers to prayer, providing encouragement and comfort, and protecting and caring for righteous humans.
But as we’re about to find out, that’s not all they do.
There are a handful of cases, in scripture, that show angels carrying out the judgment of God upon humanity through violence.
In some cases, that judgment is death.
Angels are capable of incredible destruction, and can destroy a city with a mere gesture of the hand, as we can see in 2 Samuel 24:16. And because they are spiritual beings, once sent on their mission, they cannot be stopped by any human means.
These angelic attacks are reminders of God’s sovereign power, as well as the lengths He will go to in order to protect and guide humanity.
