An Unlikely Warrior

I have been doing topical Bible Studies and currently, I'm studying about Angels. What fascinating and exciting encounters different people had with angels but the most special ones of all was when they were visited by the Angel of the LORD, the preincarnate Christ.

For when we were still without strength, in due time Christ died for the ungodly.  For scarcely for a righteous man will one die; yet perhaps for a good man someone would even dare to die. But God demonstrates His own love toward us, in that while we were still sinners, Christ died for us.  Much more then, having …
