Genesis 21:17 And God heard the voice of the lad. Then the angel of God called to Hagar out of heaven, and said to her, “What ails you, Hagar? Fear not, for God has heard the voice of the lad where he is.
Genesis 22:15 Then the Angel of the Lord called to Abraham a second time out of heaven,
When this bible speaks of angels speaking “out of heaven” rather than from heaven above, is it giving an indication that that heaven is right here but we just cannot see it? I am not proposing this is fact, I am asking myself these questions as I read, as I have said, I am on a search and the Word does say that if you search, you will find. There are dimensions of unseen beings that surround us all the time. I was in a meeting once, years ago when I actually saw the hall filled with angels that were praising the Creator God just as the assembly was. As I saw this, there was another person in the crowd that came running up to the platform to tell the assembly what he had seen and it confirmed exactly what I had seen so I know it was not just a figment of my imagination or wishful thinking. There is a friend we have here in Jerusalem who regularly sees guardian angels around people and I know she is not some kind of flake. We hear of pastors and missionaries who regularly see the demonic realm so they can pray for the people who are being oppressed. They also see the angelic realm as part of their ministry. It is recorded too often in the bible to be discounted that this invisible realm exists. 2Kings 6:17 And Elisha prayed, and said, “Lord, I pray, open his eyes that he may see.” Then 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. This is just one example recorded in the bible, there are some 280 instances of angels recorded that the God of Creation wants us to be aware of.
