Interview with an Angel
Below is a transcript of a real conversation I had with the Angel Gabriel.
By ‘real’ I mean ‘sort of real’. By ‘sort of real’ I mean ‘completely unreal’.
I am ‘S’, He is “A” and we’re on the official phone of heaven, the I-phone...
S: Hey Gabe, I know you’re super busy doing super secret angel spy stuff so I really appreciate you taking this call. BTW can I call you Gabe?
A: Gabe’s fine. Just stop picturing me as a chubby Oompa Loompa with wings.
S: Oh, I wasn’t really...
A: Yes you were.
S: But how’d...
A: How did I know what you were thinking?
A: Mind reading. Angels can read minds you know.
A: No. J/K. But you should have seen your face when I said that.
S: Oh. Ha. Wait.. what? You can see me?
A: Ya. Michael’s a tech geek. Built this thing that allows us to watch y’all on Hi-Def. Pretty wicked. You’ll see for yourself when you get here.
S: Whoa! Hold on. When I get there? Do you know something I don’t know?
A: I know lots of things you don’t know.
S: Like what?
A: Like how many wood chucks a wood chuck would chuck if a wood chuck could chuck wood. LOL.
S: Why is that so funny?
A: Haven’t you seen the commercial?
S: Yea. Pretty funny. Guess I just didn’t picture you people having a sense of humor.
A: What does that mean? And what do you mean by ‘you people’?
S: You know... angels... aren’t you like singing 24/7? I mean, no offense but aren’t you just like a real life Christian juke box with wings?
A: Ha. Congrats, you just topped the ‘fat chubby midget with wings’ angel stereotype. You know if you see what we see, you’d be doing a whole lot of worshiping too instead of say checking your face-book 50 times a day.
S: Ouch. Cheap shot, even for an angel. But I don’t blame you. Easy for you to say cause you’re RIGHT THERE looking at the glory of God.
A: You mean the same glory you’ve been ignoring all your life?
A: Dude, Isaiah 6: The whole earth is filled with his glory.
S: But um, I thought that was a metaphor.
A: You kidding me? The whole earth is filled with his glory. Like literally. The whole earth. ARGH!
S: Argh? Why argh? why are you getting frustrated?
A: Because you miss it. You guys completely miss it and Its everywhere. Gods glory is everywhere. There are constant displays of his greatness EVERYWHERE. Oh La La La La La.
S: Wait, why’d you just start singing?
A: Because I just saw it.
S: Where? Tell me. What did you see?
S: Really? you’re singing because of water?
A: Yes. God made water. It was his idea. How incredible. Oh look, snow flakes. See how they cover those trees. Whoa! Trees. What a display of Gods creativity... Look at them. Oh my word, you can see... How insane is that? Your brain just transmitted and interpreted information from your eyes faster than you can say... Squirrels. Oh, I love those little sneaky creatures... Do you know how many animals God created? You guys have no idea... Do you understand the words that are coming out of my mouth? cause if you do, that's CRAZY. You can hear. Ha ha. you can hear w-o-r-d-s and translate them...
S: Gabe, slow...
A: Look. Over. There. At. Those. Rocks... Did you hear that? Thunder. God just let that happen you know. By the way, a baby was just born while I said that. God just formed a human being in the belly of another. HOW AMAZING IS THAT?
S: I guess...
A: You guess? Look, I know its ‘common place’ for you but for crying out loud open your eyes and see the GLORY. HIS GLORY. Its in the stars, the ants, the snow, your skin... can you see it now? Its everywhere. Gods glory. THE WHOLE EARTH IS FILLED WITH HIS GLORY. DO YOU SEE IT?
Gods glory is displayed everywhere around you. There is wonder and majesty everywhere. Find it, be in awe and then please tell us about it. Let God use your eyes to help others find 'the awesome' in common places. Don't hold back. Please. Lets have a good ol' praise and worship time together.
Where do you see 'His glory' today?
