Do you believe in angels?

In Day Four of Today in a Mangerwe consider the angel Gabriel. Many people today do not believe in angels. Yet thirty-four books in the Bible mention angels, including every single New Testament book! Angels are mentioned more than 250 times in the Bible. In the Bible an angel is often depicted as someone sent by God to explain or execute His purposes. When Jesus was on earth, angels were often around Him. They predicted His birth, ministered to Him after His temptation in the wilderness, gave Him strength when He faced death on the cross, and declared His resurrection and ascension. The angel Gabriel told Zechariah that he and his wife Elizabeth would have a son, John the Baptist. An encounter with angels is something we should welcome.
