What is an Angel?

In ancient times the word angel simply meant a messenger.  Alexander the great called his ambassadors and emissaries angels.  

 

The ancient ones divided the messengers into three classes, heavenly messengers, earthly messengers, and chthonic messengers. [Chthonic has to do with the underworld, hades, the realm of the dead.]  But the basic sense of the word was one who carried a message.  

 

These three classes are also seen in the Christian Bible.  There was the angel, a heavenly angel, that stood in the way of Balaam as he went to curse Israel.

He came with the message to King Saul concerning his coming death.  Having, by the witch, been brought back from the realm of the dead, he was a chthonic angel, brought back from hades if you will.  

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
