Another Thayer painting from 1898.
The mind of man ( or woman ) plans his/her way, but the Lord directs, his/her steps/ Proverbs 16:9
What a wonderful mindset to walk in the fact that angels are beside you. Not only beside, but behind and in front and even above you. Angels always accompany the Holy Spirit of God and are there as His servants to look into salvation or to keep track of us.
The angels may not have been satisfied with their knowledge having no need of salvation They heard of this plan and were deeply interested. They “desire to look into it.” Personally, I like this version of 1 Peter 1:12.
God revealed to these prophets that their work was not for their own benefit, but for yours, as they spoke about those things which you have now heard from the messengers who announced the Good News by the power of the Holy Spirit sent from heaven. These are things which even the angels would like to understand.
God show you many things in the prophetic, and angels are curious about us, and there to help.
