Angels adminster God’s judgments

 

Angels carry out the judgments of God upon His enemies when ordered to do so. Th ere are some terrifying displays of angels’ power in this regard. As mentioned earlier under the topic of power, there was the case where one angel caused the death of 185,000 Assyrians in one night after Sennacherib threatened Hezekiah and God. We have also discussed the instance where an angel wiped out more than 70,000 people from Dan to Beer-sheba and would have annihilated Jerusalem had the Lord not stayed His hand (2 Sam. 24.15–17). Other examples include Sodom and Gomorrah, two cities which were fl attened due to their atrocities and horrendous sin (Gen. 19.12 onwards) and the Egyptians at Passover (Ex. 12.23).
