Angels’ longing

“Concerning this salvation, the prophets, who spoke of the grace that was to come to you, searched intently and with the greatest care, trying to find out the time and circumstances to which the Spirit of Christ in them was pointing when he predicted the sufferings of the Messiah and the glories that would follow.  It was revealed to them that they were not serving themselves but you, when they spoke of the things that have now been told you by those who have preached the gospel to you by the Holy Spirit sent from heaven. Even angels long to look into these things.”  1 Peter 1:10-12

‘Trying to the time and circumstances of the sufferings of Messiah and the glories to follow!’.  The prophets diligently longed to know the plan of God!  Even angels long to know this!  And so do we.  But God has so constructed the prophecies that we cannot know for sure ahead of time.  Many prophecies have multiple fulfillments or are non-sequential.  “Let God be true, and every human being a liar!”  Romans 3:4
