The Angel Of The Lord

The Bible has many references to angels. Some are "regular" angels (e.g. see Your Guardian Angel), and some are "archangels" (e.g. see Gabriel), but there is also reference to a very special Spirit Being, known as "The Angel of The Lord," Who alone guided the Israelites through the Exodus, and was present at, and in control of, key events through the Old Testament. Who could The Angel of The Lord have been?

The Tabernacle First, just what does The Bible record about The Angel of The Lord? A few examples -

"The Angel of The Lord found Hagar [see Ishmael] near a spring in the desert; it was the spring that is beside the road to Shur ... She gave this name to The Lord Who spoke to her: "You are The God who sees me," for she said, "I have now seen The One who sees me." (Genesis 16:7,13)

"But The Angel of The Lord called out to him from heaven, "Abraham! Abraham!" "Here I am," he replied. "Do not lay a hand on the boy," He said. "Do not do anything to him. Now I know that you fear God, because you have not withheld from Me your son, your only son." (Genesis 22:11-12)

"There The Angel of The Lord appeared to him in flames of fire from within a bush. Moses saw that though the bush was on fire it did not burn up. So Moses thought, "I will go over and see this strange sight - why the bush does not burn up." When The Lord saw that he had gone over to look, God called to him from within the bush, "Moses! Moses!" And Moses said, "Here I am." "Do not come any closer," God said. "Take off your sandals, for the place where you are standing is holy ground." Then He said, "I Am The God of your father, The God of Abraham, The God of Isaac and the God of Jacob." At this, Moses hid his face, because he was afraid to look at God." (Exodus 3:2-6)

The Angel of The Lord came back a second time and touched him and said, "Get up and eat, for the journey is too much for you." So he got up and ate and drank. Strengthened by that food, he traveled forty days and forty nights until he reached Horeb, the mountain of God. There he went into a cave and spent the night. And The Word of The Lord came to him: "What are you doing here, Elijah?" (1 Kings 19:7-9)

So, just Who was The Angel of The Lord? The apostle Paul answers that question for us, in plain unmistakable language. See Rock Of Ages
