Read Revelation 19:1-6
Once you know to start looking for them, angels abound in the Old Testament, show up in even greater numbers in the New Testament, and come out in full glorious force in the book of Revelation. When I’ve traveled in poor areas, where people are in refugee shelters, where clean water is hard to come by, where government bureaucracies are breathtakingly corrupt, where education is only for children of the rich, where youth of the “wrong” color or clan are brutalized and enslaved, and when I’ve asked Christians living in these most desperate of circumstances what their favorite part of the Bible is, more often than not, it’s Revelation. There will be a time when God’s work is done on earth, all evil power is brought to an end, tears cease, and the mass choirs of heaven sing a full-throated victory song in the presence of the risen Christ, with God and all God’s angels.
