“We need to retrain our brains to hear the word MESSENGER instead of ANGEL because our minds automatically go to the ethereal and the celestial when we think ANGEL, but the word properly translated is MESSENGER and can include YOU or ME in it’s description.”

Let’s do an experiment and see how the Scriptures speak to us with the proper translation…

Mat 13:41 The Son of man shall send forth his messengers, and they shall gather out of his kingdom all things that offend, and them which do iniquity;

Lastly, I would like to draw your attention to the word SAINT or SAINTS, in the Greek the word is G40 ἅγιος

hagios: sanctified, holy

It is used 62 times in the NT as SAINT or SAINTS

Mat 27:52 And the graves were opened; and many bodies of the saints (G40) which slept arose,

Act 9:13 Then Ananias answered, Lord, I have heard by many of this man, how much evil he hath done to thy saints (G40) at Jerusalem:

Php 4:21 Salute every SAINT (G40) in Christ Jesus. The brethren which are with me greet you.

Jud 1:14-15 And Enoch also, the seventh from Adam, prophesied of these, saying, Behold, the Lord cometh with ten thousands of his SAINTS (G40), To execute judgment upon ALL, and to convince ALL that are ungodly among them of ALL their ungodly deeds which they have ungodly committed, and of ALL their hard speeches which ungodly sinners have spoken against Him.

“According to the scripture above in Jude, those (angles) we all think about in verses like these in Matthew and Mark, may just be US, the SAINTS of God.”

Mat 13:39 The enemy that sowed them is the devil; the harvest is the end of the world; and the reapers are the messengers.

Mat 13:41 The Son of man shall send forth his messengers, and they shall gather out of his kingdom all things that offend, and them which do iniquity;
