And in the same region there were shepherds out in the field, keeping watch over their flock by night. 9 And an angel of the Lord appeared to them, and the glory of the Lord shone around them, and they were filled with great fear. 10 And the angel said to them, “Fear not, for behold, I bring you good news of great joy that will be for all the people. 11 For unto you is born this day in the city of David a Savior, who is Christ the Lord. 12 And this will be a sign for you: you will find a baby wrapped in swaddling cloths and lying in a manger.” 13 And suddenly there was with the angel a multitude of the heavenly host praising God and saying,
14 “Glory to God in the highest,
and on earth peace among those with whom he is pleased!”
When the song of the angels is stilled.
When the star in the sky is gone.
When the kinds and princes are home.
When the shepherds are back with their flock.
The work of Christ(mas) begins:
The find the lost,
To heal the broken,
To feed the hungry,
To release the prisoner,
To rebuild the nations,
To bring peace among brothers,
To make music in the heart.
Alleluia! Unto us a child is born. ~Author Unknown
Where were those Angels after Gabriel had said he stands in the Presence of God...
Bless the LORD, all you His hosts, You who serve Him, doing His will.
"You alone are the LORD. You have made the heavens, The heaven of heavens with all their host, The earth and all that is on it, The seas and all that is in them. You give life to all of them And the heavenly host bows down before You."
1 Kings 22:19-22
Micaiah said, "Therefore, hear the word of the LORD. I saw the LORD sitting on His throne, and all the host of heaven standing by Him on His right and on His left."
Where is Jesus in this?
And again, when he brings the firstborn into the world, he says,
“Let all God's angels worship Him.”
So... where were the Angels???
Lift up your eyes on high And see who has created these stars, The One who leads forth their host by number, He calls them all by name.
He knows all the Host of Heaven by name. Where where the Angels?
2 Kings 6:5-
When the servant of the man of God rose early in the morning and went out, behold, an army with horses and chariots was all around the city. And the servant said, “Alas, my master! What shall we do?” 16 He said, “Do not be afraid, for those who are with us are more than those who are with them.” 17 Then Elisha prayed and said, “O Lord, please open his eyes that he may see.” So the Lord opened the eyes of the young man, and he saw, and behold, the mountain was full of horses and chariots of fire all around Elisha.
And Jesus Himself tells us where the Angels were for Him.
Do you think that I cannot appeal to my Father, and he will at once send me more than twelve legions of angels?
and on earth Peace among those with whom He is pleased!”
