What are Angels? – Pt. 2

 

These numinous spirits or angels in Biblical sources and non biblical sources are what some would call shapeshifters.  By that I mean they appear in a form that is acceptable to the cultural archetypes that they are doing service for.  

 

Two examples are the cases of The Wise Men who came to the young child Jesus.

And Samuel who was manifested for King Saul.

The angels took a form that would be culturally and personally received by the intended beneficiaries of their work.  [I cover this in detail in my book on Guardian Angels.]  

 

First it is to be noted that angels and archangels do not deal strictly with those in the Judeo-Christian tradition.  E.g., Balaam was not of the Jewish tradition, and the wise men were vedic astrologers from India.   

 

Second, there was divine revelation outside the Judeo-Christian tradition.  The divine message was given through angels to the wise men who came from India to visit Jesus.  Moses during the wilderness wandering to the promised land sought counsel  of Jethro, his father-in-law, who was a priest of the Midianites.  

 

Abraham gave an offering to Melchizedek.  Jesus is said to be a priest after the order of Melchizedek.  That is He was not a priest of Judaism; he was not of the Aaronic line.  But he, while being a man in the Jewish tradition, was a priest outside the Jewish tradition.  
In Jesus day He exemplified there was truth outside the Jewish tradition, the Melchizedek tradition.  That Jewish tradition was true, but there was other truth too.  Jesus in part came to point to the combining of Jewish and extra Jewish truth.  That was what Christianity was supposed to be.

About The Author

Dr. Bill in San Antonio, TX, holds six degrees in religious studies including a Ph.D. and a Th.D. He holds several other certificates and certifications. He has been what some call a professional student. Raised mostly in rural south and south-central Texas, he is equally at ease on the ranch, in the woods, in meditation, or metaphysical pursuits. He was the author of two books now out of print and several that he has not pushed for publication. He has written numerous articles in pier review journals during his time in traditional ministry. He was invited to be on the translation committee for a modern Bible translation but declined, for philosophic differences over translation presuppositions. His studies in comparative religions led him into an in depth study of metaphysics. He has a knack for noticing overlapping principles in different systems. It occurred to him that when things keep showing up in many religions that these maybe the secret truth past down from our ancient past that are applicable to us today. As in folk lore Odin hung from the tree upside down and after nine days, came to know the secret runes. Today Dr. Bill strives to look at repeating truths in a different way. He is willing as needed to take the time to see the secrets that are ready to be opened from different directional considerations. Dr. Bill was a traditional minister for 25 years, filling pulpits two times a week and teaching many classes. Now he has centered his work on the metaphysical of spirituality. Dr. Bill looks at the metaphysical and spiritual from a new eclectic perspective. This rare insight has been a boon to him and as he works to help you can be a boon to you amazon.com/author/billhaberman
