Like many of you, I remember certain things that make an impression that I cannot shake. Many years back, I broke my leg and was in a cast, and maneuvering was difficult. We had a closing in a high-rise, and I was by myself because I was meeting Richard there. I got as close to the door as possible, but it would still be a long walk and nearly impossible to get inside. I was one of only a couple of cars on that particular floor of the parking garage. I was contemplating what I would do when a “security guard” appeared out of nowhere. He instructed me to park in the loading parking near the door. I looked away for a second, and he was gone. I never saw him again. I knew God had sent an angel to give me instructions. I will never forget it for as long as I live. I was in an impossible situation, and God sent help.
Abraham entertained angels. They were bringing news about Sarah becoming pregnant and on their way to visit Sodom and Gomorrah. They appeared in human flesh, which tells me it is possible and can happen again; it’s scriptural. The scripture also points out that one was Jesus because Genesis 18:1a says: “And the LORD appeared unto him in the plains of Mamre.” This verse uses all caps to indicate that one of them was Jehovah God. In verse 18:17, it also used LORD when he spoke about Sarah.
Angels take on a human likeness because we would freak out if we saw them in their heavenly garb. Remember, nothing is impossible with God.
Is any thing too hard for the LORD? At the time appointed I will return unto thee, according to the time of life, and Sarah shall have a son. Genesis 18:13
