Isaiah 9:6-7
v6. For to us a child is born, to us a son is given, and the government will be on his shoulders. And he will be called Wonderful Counselor, Mighty God, Everlasting Father, Prince of Peace.
v7. Of the greatness of his government and peace there will be no end. He will reign on David’s throne and over his kingdom, establishing and upholding it with justice and righteousness from that time on and forever. The zeal of the LORD Almighty will accomplish this.
Abraham looked up and saw three men standing nearby Genesis 18:2 (NIV)
Hebrews 13:2 refers to this story about Abraham and tells us to practice hospitality. Abraham was fortunate to be a gracious host that day, because he “entertained angels unaware.”
Etiquette books aren’t much help here. There is no proper protocol for receiving angels. But even if there were, I doubt that it would help, because angels are, in Bill Graham’s words, “God’s secret agents.” God’s messengers cloak themselves in the ordinary. We are not likely to recognize them for what they are unless they appear in glory as they did in the fields of Bethlehem. That is most rare!
Most often , God’s messengers are mortal, but as messengers they are still like angels. Jesus even said that whatever we do to the lowliest believer, we do to him! Can we learn to recognize angels-and Christ-in those we meet, especially those in need?      Frederick W. Baltz
