Angel Fact

Angels Had The Power to Rescue Jesus

The twelve legions of angels, 72,000 in total, were waiting for Christ to give them the command to rescue Him at His hour of betrayal. We are reminded of this in Matthew 26: 52-53 when it says “Then Jesus said to him, ‘Put your sword back into its place; for all those who take up the sword shall perish by the sword. Or do you think that I cannot appeal to My Father, and He will at once put at My disposal more than twelve legions of angels?” While these angels were more than ready and willing, this wasn’t according to our Heavenly Father’s plan. Jesus was willing to make the ultimate sacrifice for us when He laid down his life for us on a cross.
