Angels or Bishops

Posted on May 16th, by Ryan in Revelation 2:1-7. No Comments

Earlier, in Revelation 1:20, I noticed that each church had an angel. Now the direction from Jesus is that a letter be written addressed to an angel of a church. Does Jackson have its own angel?

Normally, I would expect that God would use an angel to deliver a message to a person (like Mary) but it strikes me that here, God instructs a person to deliver a message to an angel. I’d think that the authority of an apostle of Jesus writing to just the people in the church at Ephesus would be a sufficient authoritative figure but the one like a son of man makes sure to instruct that the message is from the one who holds the stars that represent those angels.
