Metaphysical meaning of angel (mbd)

Metaphysical meaning of angel (mbd)
angel, an'-gel (Gk.)--messenger; messengers of God.

Meta. Thought of the Lord (Luke 1:11). Our angels are our spiritual perceptive faculties, which ever dwell in the presence of the Father (Matt. 13:49).

"Their angels do always behold the face of my Father who is in heaven" (Matt. 18:10). These angels of our childlike, spiritual thoughts, "these little ones," are the thoughts that understand spiritual principles. The office of the angels is to guard and guide and direct the natural forces of mind and body, which have in them the future of the whole man.

The "two angels in white sitting, one at the head, and one at the feet, where the body of Jesus had lain" are affirmation and denial. It is by the use of these messengers of the I AM that the body is taken out and away from the tomb of matter and flesh (John 20:12).

The angel mentioned in Exodus 3:2 symbolizes a messenger; it is the projection into consciousness of a spiritual idea direct from the fountainhead, Jehovah.
