Roots of the Faith – “Angels”

My notes for Wednesday night, Sept 13th. Remember, these are my personal study notes and not a manuscript of the sermon. They are provided as an outline each week for our Tabernacle Church family. Our study over the next few months will be “The Roots of the Faith.” This study will focus on key biblical truths that will transform our thinking and allow us to faithfully live out the Christian life. You can find Sermon Notes, Family Devotional Guides, Prayer List, and other resources at our Church Website.

  • They do not have material bodies like we do.

    • No biblical evidence that each believer has their own guardian angel
  • We have not authority over angels. They answer to God alone.
