13 US military killed after Kabul Airport bombing, with 60 Afghans also killed

There are a handful of cases in scripture that show angels carrying out the judgment of God upon humanity through violence.

In some cases, that judgment is death.

Angels are capable of incredible destruction, and can destroy a city with a mere gesture of the hand, as we can see in 2 Samuel 24:16. And because they are spiritual beings, once sent on their mission, they cannot be stopped by any human means.

These angelic attacks are reminders of God’s sovereign power, as well as the lengths He will go to in order to protect and guide humanity.
