How many of these involved angels?
Do angels not continue to minister to us today? (Heb. 1:13, 14) Then should we not expect them to use similar methods they used in biblical times? Isn’t that partially at least why we have been given this thorough record of their activity? Even with the full Bible, there are decisions we need to make that require information not found in the Bible. Especially directional decisions.
