“Angels are a sign of the royal presence of God. Because people have turned from God and have destroyed one another, there’s a slab as it were, between Heaven and Earth. A wall between the ideal and the real…I have punched a hole in the slab between Heaven and Earth. Through my incarnation as a human being, and through my death on the cross, which you haven’t seen yet, I can bring you right into the presence of God.” – Tim Keller
