Again there was a day when the sons of God came to present themselves before the LORD, and Satan came also among them to present himself before the LORD.[Job 2:1]
Traditional Christianity has often presented an incomplete perspective of the heavenly realm and the beings that occupy that realm. Unfortunately, the term “angel” has become a catch-all to describe any being other than God, and yet the Biblical testimony is much more complex and nuanced when it comes to identifying the heavenly hosts.
For starters, the Bible speaks of these heavenly beings in many different ways to describe both their nature and function. They are called the host of heaven, watchers, angels, princes, gods, cosmic powers, rulers, and authorities who occupy thrones, dominions and principalities in the heavenly places [Ephesians 6:12].
And perhaps one of the most overlooked and misunderstood title of all is what the Hebrew Scriptures call the “sons of God,” or the bene ha’ Elohim. Once we comprehend the true identity of the heavenly sons of God, we are able to appreciate what it means for the sons of Adam to be given the right to become sons of God. Just in case you are wondering, it has everything to do with the Person and redemptive work of “the” Unique and Only Son of God — Yeshua the Messiah.
Discover what the Bible says about this divine class of heavenly beings and why it matters in God’s cosmic plan of redemption.
