To my dearest and most faithful readers,
Hello again or welcome if you are a new reader. If you are familiar with Fighting with Angels then you already know all about Lars. He is easily one of the most talented and powerful of God’s angels. He is also one of the most stubborn and begrudged of his kind. To understand this you must first understand the choice that was laid before all angels.
Before God created man He disclosed his plan for them to all of the angels of heaven. Lucifer, who was the most fair of all the angels, refused to accept that Jesus was to be born of a human woman and become man himself. He rejected God’s plan and became the first Fallen Angel. From there he began to recruit as many angels to his cause as he could.
Thus entered Lars into the picture. Lars came the closest of all the angels in heaven to leaving the Kingdom of God, but still remain. Rather than join so many of his brethren, he chose to trust in God’s plan and stay on the side of love, but it was a love of God, not man, that swayed his decision.
Among the many differences between men and the angels that protect them is their choice. While humans are in a constant state of flux on their walk with God, angels made their choice one time for all time and are bound by it. Lars made his choice and has trudged forward ever since, quietly holding his disdain in check for the ‘assignments’ he has been charged to protect. At least he used to be quiet. Most of the time man cannot see angels, unless they appear to them, and Lars has always preferred to keep it that way. But when a group of scientists discovered a way into the spiritual world all of that changed, including the angel’s silence about his feelings.
Lars is completely loyal to the choice that he made and I am comforted by the knowledge that he is on our side, but from what I’ve been told, he isn’t exactly the life of the party when he is in the company of what he considers to be ‘lesser beings’. I will write to you again soon…
