Angels Among Us

You may have heard someone recount a time when a loved one was dying and the dying person spoke of an angel being in the room , ready to take them home. I find these stories very comforting. Some non-dying people seem able to see these spiritual beings as well. The Bible gives us a little information about Angels, or heavenly messengers, but not a lot . The reverend Billy Graham wrote a book about them , but I haven’t read it.

I just like knowing that God protects his own and cares for them and sometimes He does it using angels. I often pray that He will protect my husband and children from danger and Satan and I believe that he will and does! He also sent them to the disciples .

But during the night an angel of the Lord opened the prison doors and brought them out, and said, – Acts 5:19

Angels also ministered to Jesus on earth and now he rules over them in heaven .

Then the devil left him, and behold, angels came and were ministering to him. – Matthew 4:11

However we are not to pray to them or worship them.

Let no one disqualify you, insisting on asceticism and worship of angels, going on in detail about visions, puffed up without reason by his sensuous mind, – Colossians 2:18

God alone deserves our prayers and worship , through his son Jesus Christ .

And whatever you do, in word or deed, do everything in the name of the Lord Jesus, giving thanks to God the Father through him. – Colossians 3:17

In the Old Testament, the words “the angel of the LORD ” referred to Jesus before he was given a human body . Jesus was at work among people even then.

Thank you , Lord for your loving care . Amen

I'd love to hear your thoughts!
