When a person prays, from within self, in his mind, in his heart, in his soul unto Holy God, The LORD, Christ Messiah, the last thing the person wants to hear is that there was some 'intercepting' of those words of those prayers. So when someone tells me that 'angels' receive prayers to take them before The LORD, I have to wonder... who gave them permission to hear my thoughts? This idea that 'angels' take prayers up to The LORD is an idea written about in one of the books which Mrs. White wrote pertaining to Christ Messiah and Life and Church and the believing one(s) and how the arrangement between 'The LORD and God and this world', with 'Satan' having been 'thrown out', (and to which he is never allowed back in) is. Fortunately now, we all know that there was no such 'war' in Heaven, pre Eden where the already existing 'serpent' was not one of the created lifes along with all the other lifes but was, in some way, a shape shifting 'fallen holy angel' whom beguiled Eve and then whom Eve beguiled Adam. Why? How do we know? Because the idea of that 'war' is in Revelation in The Holy Bible pertaining the 'war' between Churches, ideologies, doctrines and power to receive. Not all Churches, even when confronted about their beguilement will change for the Truth. Why? Because who will stop them from being 'wrong', anyways? So the reference to that old serpent of old, that devil, Satan, who misleads the whole world is this very concept. That a 'serpent' is actually responsible for every man's inability to turn from evil and do good. And each of these Churches that continue in their defiance to the Truth actually still believe and teach in that 'old serpent' of Old, that misleading 'fallen holy angel'. Here is something that requires 'faith' more than instruction. If The LORD is without deceit and if with The LORD there is no darkness of 'wrong', then would The LORD be 100 percent 'perfect'? And if The LORD is 100% perfect, how can a bad tree come from a good seed? Meaning it is by and through and of The LORD which the 'holy angels' would have been 'fashioned/created/made', etc... If a good tree, from a good seed, cannot bear bad fruit; and if a bad tree, from a bad seed, cannot bear good fruit, how would to believe upon wrongful 'heavenly beings' NOT be considering The LORD not 100% perfect? If The LORD is not 100% perfect, then you would be saying that there is another 'more perfect' which exists, even if self has exposed the unperfectness of The LORD.
