I have been studying the Bible for almost 50 years and I just noticed the astounding fact that angels
were directly involved in giving the Old Testament Law. (We know all Scripture is inspired by God.)
2 Peter 1:21 says: For the prophecy came not in old time by the will
of man: but holy men of God spake as they were moved by the Holy Ghost.
apparently, was especially true of the "prophesies" and other parts of the Bible, but the "Law" seems
to have been specially given by angels.
Acts 7:53 says: Who have received
the law by the disposition of angels, and have not kept it.
Hebrews 2:1-3 says: Therefore we ought to give the more
earnest heed to the things which we have heard, lest at any time we should let them slip. For if the word spoken by angels was stedfast, and every transgression and disobedience received
a just recompence of reward; How
shall we escape, if we neglect so great salvation; which at the first began to be spoken by the Lord, and was confirmed unto
us by them that heard him;
Galatians 3:19: Wherefore
then serveth the law? It was added because of transgressions, till the seed should come to whom the promise was made; and
it was ordained by angels in the hand of a mediator.
In Hebrews chapters 1 and 2, it is emphasised how very steadfast as the "Law" ordained
by angels IS!
It is even MORE how much more critical it
is to pay dilligent attention to Jesus and his associates.
Hebrew chapters 1-2:
1 God, who at sundry times
and in divers manners spake in time past unto the fathers by the prophets,
2 Hath in these last days spoken unto us by his Son, whom he hath appointed
heir of all things, by whom also he made the worlds;
3 Who being the brightness of his glory, and the express image of his person, and upholding all
things by the word of his power, when he had by himself purged our sins, sat down on the right hand of the Majesty on high:
4 Being made so much better than the angels, as he
hath by inheritance obtained a more excellent name than they.
5 For unto which of the angels said he at any time, Thou art my Son, this day have I begotten
thee? And again, I will be to him a Father, and he shall be to me a Son?
6 And again, when he bringeth in the firstbegotten into the world, he saith,
And let all the angels of God worship him.
of the angels he saith, Who maketh his angels spirits, and his ministers a flame of fire.
8 But unto the Son he saith, Thy throne,
O God, is for ever and ever: a sceptre of righteousness is the sceptre of thy kingdom.
9 Thou hast loved righteousness, and hated iniquity; therefore
God, even thy God, hath anointed thee with the oil of gladness above thy fellows.
10 And, Thou, Lord, in the beginning hast laid the foundation
of the earth; and the heavens are the works of thine hands:
11 They shall perish; but thou remainest; and they all shall wax old as doth a garment;
12 And as a vesture shalt thou fold them up, and
they shall be changed: but thou art the same, and thy years shall not fail.
13 But to which of the angels said he at any time, Sit on my right hand, until I
make thine enemies thy footstool?
they not all ministering spirits, sent forth to minister for them who shall be heirs of salvation?
1 Therefore we ought to give the more earnest
heed to the things which we have heard, lest at any time we should let them slip.
2 For if the word spoken by angels was stedfast, and every transgression
and disobedience received a just recompence of reward;
3 How shall we escape, if we neglect so great salvation; which at the first began to be spoken
by the Lord, and was confirmed unto us by them that heard him;
4 God also bearing them witness, both with signs and wonders, and with divers miracles, and gifts
of the Holy Ghost, according to his own will?
5 For unto the angels hath he not put in subjection the world to come, whereof we speak.
6 But one in a certain place testified, saying, What
is man, that thou art mindful of him? or the son of man that thou visitest him?
7 Thou madest him a little lower than the angels; thou crownedst
him with glory and honour, and didst set him over the works of thy hands:
8 Thou hast put all things in subjection under his feet. For in that he put
all in subjection under him, he left nothing that is not put under him. But now we see not yet all things put under him.
9 But we see Jesus, who was made a little lower than
the angels for the suffering of death, crowned with glory and honour; that he by the grace of God should taste death for every

things, and by whom are all things, in bringing many sons unto glory, to make the captain of their salvation perfect through
11 For both
he that sanctifieth and they who are sanctified are all of one: for which cause he is not ashamed to call them brethren,
12 Saying, I will declare thy name unto my brethren,
in the midst of the church will I sing praise unto thee.
13 And again, I will put my trust in him. And again, Behold I and the children which God hath
then as the children are partakers of flesh and blood, he also himself likewise took part of the same; that through death
he might destroy him that had the power of death, that is, the devil;
15 And deliver them who through fear of death were all their lifetime subject
verily he took not on him the nature of angels; but he took on him the seed of Abraham.
17 Wherefore in all things it behoved him to be made like unto
his brethren, that he might be a merciful and faithful high priest in things pertaining to God, to make reconciliation for
the sins of the people.
in that he himself hath suffered being tempted, he is able to succour them that are tempted.
