Wings and Beams

October 6, 2010 Donna New

Does God have wings? Is it just figurative and He’s only a Spirit or does He actually have wings for a purpose? I believe the descriptions of God in the Bible are true. But that doesn’t answer the question. I also believe the descriptions are given to place a picture in our heads and hearts of what God is like. So I say He does have wings.

Malachi 4:2 says Now unto you who revere and worshipfully fear My Name shall the Sun of Righteousness arise with healing in His wings and His beams and you shall go forth and gambol (which means to leap about playfully) like calves (released) from the stall and jump for joy.

The Sun of Righteousness must be Jesus in the same form that He was during the transfiguration. His face was bright and His clothes bright.  After we’ve been harmed by this earth, and all of us have, my hearts desire, and maybe yours too, is to be near Him safe under His wings, warmed by His beams and healed of life’s struggles. Only love can do that.

When I read the meaning of gambol and that we will jump for joy my first thought was of my niece and new nephew at their wedding. As they were leaving the wedding they skipped down the aisle to How Sweet It Is To Be Loved By You. At the reception they danced with all their hearts like David did. There was slow, sweet dancing and fast gotta-have-rhythm dancing. I don’t believe I’ve ever observed such joy. Love does that. Love will do that one day in a complete and eternal way.
