Angels: Are They Real?

"Are not all angels ministering spirits sent to serve those who will
inherit salvation?" - Hebrews 1:14.

There's a considerable amount of interest in angels these days. Are
they for real or just a figment of the imagination of dreamers,
poets, authors, and the makers of Hollywood movies?

A pastor's wife I know personally was awakened one night at 2:00AM
with a sense of urgency to pray for her married daughter who was home
alone in another city. The following morning her daughter called to
say that she was awakened at 2:00AM by a masked stranger standing at
the end of her bed. The daughter saw no one else in the room but
could feel light "steps" all over her bed.

Suddenly the intruder turned as if terrified and ran from the house,
exiting as quickly as he could! Was it the presence of an angel/s
that caused him to run? I believe so.

The Bible is filled with examples of the involvement of angels in the
affairs of mankind. We are not given too many details of how they
actually help God's people, but we know they are his messengers sent
to assist us. They are not to be worshiped. Worship belongs only to
God, but we do need to thank God for sending not only his Son to die
for us, but also for sending his angels to minister to us.

The writer of the letter to the Hebrew Christians also said, "Do not
forget to entertain strangers, for by so doing some people have
entertained angels without knowing it." - Hebrews 13:2 (NIV).

Prayer: "Our Most Loving Father in Heaven, thank you for the
ministering angels you send to those who have accepted you as
personal Lord and Savior. Help me always to be grateful for their
help even though they may be 'angels unawares.' Thank you for hearing
and answering my prayer. Gratefully, In Jesus Mighty Name I Pray,

Have a Blessed Saturday and God Bless you.
