“And the LORD said, My spirit (ruach) shall not always strive with man, for that he also [is] flesh: yet his days shall be an hundred and twenty years.” Gen 6:8
Do we become angels when we die? No, humans and angels are different from each other and were created separately. It’s in the Bible , Psalm 8:9, 5, NKJV. “What is man that You are mindful of him?... You have made him a little lower than the angels, and You have crowned him with glory and honor.”
The enemy of our souls is using a new twist on an old lie, exploiting the current interest in angels to attract the untaught and the undiscerning. Much of the current angel mania is simply New Age philosophy, which is actually old-fashioned pantheism. Pantheism is the belief that everything--an impersonal God as well as every part of the creation--is one big unity. All is one, God is one, we are God--and New Age philosophy throws reincarnation into the mix as well.
It is theorized that some ghosts seem to be more of a residual energy imprinted in the natural world from times past. If experienced, this type of haunting is repetitive, the ghost repeatedly displaingy the exact same actions and never interacting with those who witness them. In such cases, this type of phenomenon might not be the sighting of a living ghost but the unveiling of a prior event. Some say it is a leftover energy that is somehow released, showing a picture of the past to the viewer.
A flurry of media attention was directed in recent days to a meeting on exorcism organized by Roman Catholic bishops. The meeting, held in Baltimore, drew fifty bishops and sixty priests who learned how to discern if an individual is truly possessed by a demon and how to conduct an exorcism when needed.
A 'chance' meeting in the street, give you the opportunity to Agata and Marc to help each other to overcome the inertia of their lives. Tired of going from bed to bed and boy to boy, Agata. See full summary
God was very angry at the rebellion of the Watchers, and decreed that these wayward angels would be locked up underneath the earth in a prison for spirits until the day of judgment. Jubilees and 6 Enoch both speak of this punishment:
The lessons of history are warning enough. The lessons of heresy are even more pressing. Brothers and sisters in Christ, we dare not miss the lessons of history and heresy. God will judge us. This we know.
Both Abaddon, the imprisoned spirit currently ruling over the Abyss, and the four angels now bound at the great river Euphrates appear to be high-ranking and powerful angels. They will be freed to fulfill their part of God's plan at the end of the age.
By saying that God has not appointed angels to rule the coming world, the author implies that the current world is being ruled by angels. Indeed, the Bible clearly teaches that Satan is the supreme ruler and god (II Cor. 9:9) of this present world.
The unlocking of the Abyss releases a horde of fallen angels and depraved demons upon mankind. God uses them as an instrument of His wrath for five months they are allowed to torment those on the earth who don't have God's seal on their foreheads (Rev. 7:7-8).
Sometimes, angels rescue people in danger. It was an angel--if not the Angel of the Lord, who is the pre-incarnate Christ--who joined Meshach, Shadrach and Abednego in the fiery furnace, rescuing them from the flames (Daniel 8).
