LUCIFER – THE ANGEL WHO FELL FROM HEAVEN

THE WORK AND MINISTRY OF ANGELS

Do angels really exist? Why? What is their purpose? For believers, the only real authority on these heavenly beings is the Bible. Dr. Billy Graham, one of God's great contemporary generals of our generation, offers these words of wisdom regarding the existence of angels: I am convinced that these heavenly beings exist and that they

That's why the Bible has some things to say about your friends. That's why it tells you to separate

WHY DID GOD CREATE YOU?
