Executive Editor’s Note: The following is an excerpt from Dr. Tony Cleaver’s book, Then God Said.

“…the four angels who were prepared for the hour, day, month and year…” (Rev. 9:15 CSB).

Sitting at any gate of any international airport brings into view hundreds of passengers who are going and coming. Some are last minute trips, but most are the result of long-range planning.

The Lord Most High takes great care in His planning for the ages. This verse tells us He has prepared four angels for a particular hour, day, month and year. These angels are not “on duty” until the cosmic time determined by ultimate providence to put into action their particular duties at that very foreordained second God has intended. Some thinkers, philosophers and other wizened scholars theorize in their own minds and thinking there is no God, much less any plan for the ages. It is all at random; it is all coincidence; and it is all luck.

Don’t confuse the guesses and imaginations of the human mind with the reliability of the mind of God and Word of God. His plans are established by His distinctive will, not the wish of humankind. Just as the passengers coming and going at the airport have appointed arrival and departure times, so the Lord Himself has His timetable.

This timetable is so intricately planned that He has prepared four angels to act in concert at a certain time in human history. These are the only four we know about. How many more “specific action angels” are around His throne, just waiting their time to do His bidding in our day, in our world and in our time — even at the hour, day, month and year?
