Why is it we do not see angels and prophets anymore?

Updated on June 30, 2010

Communication through angels and prophets


In the time of Adam, God Almighty, JEHOVAH, spoke to perfect Adam, who was aware that he along with all else came into existence, BECAUSE of God. Evidently, man was to remain mortal, since, the test of obedience, had DEATH or NON-EXISTENCE as its penalty.

As a result of a rebel spirit who made himself a Resister or Adversary [Satan], this penalty was served on Adam [and by extension ALL of mankind]. But, Jehovah, stated a way out as early as Genesis 3:15, and God has progressively revealed through prophets and faithful angels, UPDATES as regards God's means of achieving a RECONCILIATION of ALL things to Himself.

Since the Chief Agent of Salvation of obedient members of MANKIND has CONQUERED, i.e. God's Word, was SENT as a perfect human [equivalent to the COST of disobedience a PERFECT life (Adam, as family head 1 Corinthians 11:3)].


Now, with the convening of the Mosaic covenant, Moses, served as the mediator, a priestly class was assigned, to carry out the function of mediators with JEHOVAH, offering sacrifices first for themselves, then for the people, for FORGIVENESS of sins.

However, Jesus the Christ [anointed One], the Son of God, was not only a Prophet like Moses [Deuteronomy 18:18-19; Acts 3:22, 23], and Mediator of a New Covenant [Jeremiah 31:31- 34; Hebrews 10:1- 18], BUT, also High Priest forever [Psalm 110:4; Hebrews 6:20; 8:1, 2]. 

So, we approach God, through, Jesus, as High Priest, forever, He being put to death, as an obedient faithful PERFECT man, BUT, being raised as an IMMORTAL Spirit [1 Corinthians 15:45 to 57].


Therefore, God, does not need to correspond with sinful mankind DIRECTLY anymore since God's MEANS of SALVATION has ACCOMPLISHED His earthly assignment with SUCCESS.

When we communicate with God, however, we do so through Jesus, the Christ.

      Interesting, yet I can't necessarily agree with everything you say. Did God give man freewill to choose if he would sin or not? I believe we must be careful not to make assumptions that we cannot back with scripture. I pray you and I will find God's perfect truth. I encourage you to read and study as much as you can and to delve into the original languages. Understanding the cultures of the time and learning the way people of the time understood scripture is also very helpful.

      Note please, why Daniel prayed in the direction of the temple, while in Babylonian exile.

      2 Chronicles 6:18 to 20.

      18 “But will God truly dwell with mankind upon the earth? Look! Heaven, yes, the heaven of the heavens themselves, cannot contain you; how much less, then, this house that I have built? 19 And you must turn toward the prayer of your servant and to his request for favor, O Jehovah my God, by listening to the entreating cry and to the prayer with which your servant is praying before you, 20 that your eyes may prove to be opened toward this house day and night, toward the place where you said you would put your name, by listening to the prayer with which your servant prays toward this place.

      Notice please, the Christ.

      Hebrews 10:21 - 23

      21 and since we have a great priest over the house of God, 22 let us approach with true hearts in the full assurance of faith, having had our hearts sprinkled from a wicked conscience and our bodies bathed with clean water. 23 Let us hold fast the public declaration of our hope without wavering, for he is faithful that promised

      I believe angels are still here, we just don't pay attention anymore. There here we just need to open our eyes, take time and listen. :)
