Now there was a man from Zorah named Manoah, from the clan of the Danites, whose wife was barren and had no children. 3The angel of the LORD appeared to the woman and said to her, “It is true that you are barren and have no children;….. (Judges 13v2.3).
“So the woman went and told her husband, “A man of God came to me. His appearance was like the angel of God, exceedingly awesome. I did not ask him where he came from, and he did not tell me his name.” (v6) I like that he did not tell me his name why because it was a secret or “beyond comprehension”(v18). Now if that was just angel then whey would his name be a secret?
Then Manoah prayed to the LORD, “Please, O Lord, let the “man” of God You sent us come to us again to teach us how to raise the boy who is to be born. And God listened to the voice of Manoah, and the angel of God returned to the woman as she was sitting in the field; but her husband Manoah was not with her. The woman ran quickly to tell her husband, “Behold, the man who came to me the other day has reappeared!”…(V8-10)
An Angel is not a man and a man is not an angel. Only God can appear as an angel and appear as a man. BUT LOOK AT THIS. The man who came in the form of an angel she called GOD “for we have seen God!” (v22) God had visited her talked to her and kept his name form here. Yes God himself in visible form reincarnate form. God himself as an angel.
God comes to us as a man because thats our world thats how we understand humanity and human things. in bless God came to us in the flesh we would never know God. (1 Tim 3;16)
Now I wish I had the space here to read all that account ing Judges you may read it for yourself and I would encouraged you to do that until the revelation gets deep down inside your soul. but allow me to continue. Many claim to have seen angels and claim God visited them, but they will deny both his humanity and his deity, as the Muslims do. An angel came to Muhammad yet they will deny the humanity and deity of Christ. An Angel is not a man and a man is not an angel, BUT BOTH HAVE THE FORM OF A MAN. God appeared as an angel and looked like a man. Manoah’s wife called GOD, a MAN of God (Judges 13:6). This was GOD who she saw who Made himself “visible” as being a MAN for Manoah said, “We have seen GOD” (Judges 13;22).
In todays world where many seek angelic encounters, should not it be so that we seek an encounter with Jesus! After all we know more about him through his book the bible than we would ever know about angels. Further should it not be so that we seek him not angels since he alone gave us salvation and eternal life?
Why seek angels if we can have a one on one with deity himself! In fact I would dare to suggest that an one on one encounter with deity himself is necessary with Jesus. didn’t he say that he that believeth on me hath eternal life. Our believing must be on him! we believe in Jesus for we have encountered him and more than that experienced him. he is an experience called salvation.
Think of this salvation’s both a name and event. Jehovah has become my light and my salvation. this means Jesus hogan has become my Jesus. Thats the greatest visitation you and I could ever experience!
Want a Jesus experience
