~The Bible Teaches That We, As Members Of The Body Of Christ, Minister To The Angels.
~I Corinthians 4:9 (NKJ) “For It Seems To Me That God Has Put Us Apostles On Display At The End Of The Procession, Like Those Condemned To Die In The Arena.

~Angels Are Learning About God’s Wisdom By Observing Us. ~They Are Not Omniscient… They Are Limited In Their Knowledge. ~But They Have The Capacity To Learn. ~There Are Things They Have Not Experienced And Do Not Fully Understand. ~1 Peter 1:10-12 (NKJ) “Of This Salvation The Prophets Have Inquired And Searched Carefully, Who Prophesied Of The Grace That Would Come To You, 11 Searching What, Or What Manner Of Time, The Spirit Of Christ Who Was In Them Was Indicating When He Testified Beforehand The Sufferings Of Christ And The Glories That Would Follow. 12 To Them It Was Revealed That, Not To Themselves, But To Us They Were Ministering The Things Which Now Have Been Reported To You Through Those Who Have Preached The Gospel To You By The Holy Spirit Sent From Heaven... Things Which Angels Desire To Look Into.”
