Do you believe that angels are real and actually exist today? Do you believe that there are some people who have a gift of seeing and hearing angels? Many people of different faiths and walks of life believe this to be true, as they believe that God has sent angels to earth to serve us, so you have angels here ready to assist you. Up to this point, you may have thought that angels are only here to watch over us and protect us. Yes, they certainly do that, and so much more!
Hebrews 13:2 “Be not forgetful to entertain strangers: for thereby some have entertained angels unawares.” (KJV)
Sometimes we are in the presence of angels in physical form here on the earth, and we don’t even know it. We should definitely make it a point to be kind to everyone at all times, as you never know when you’re in the company of an angel.
Hebrews 1:14 “Are they not all ministering spirits, sent forth to minister for them who shall be heirs of salvation?” (KJV)
Christians believe that angels are assigned to assist you personally. You do not serve angels, they serve you. God is so gracious that He has given you so much help to live a victorious life. The job of an angel is to enforce the Covenant (Agreement) between you and God. That Covenant says that if you keep God’s commandments, He blesses you.
The Bible is filled with God’s promises from Genesis to Revelation, but again, you can find the promises of the Abrahamic Covenant that you are entitled to in Deuteronomy 28. The curses from God are also listed in Deuteronomy 28, after the blessings are listed.
So how do the angels actually help us? God’s Word says…
Psalms 103:20 “Bless the LORD, ye His angels that excel in strength, that do His commandments, hearkening into the voice of His Word.”
Angels don’t just hearken to God’s Word, but to the voice of the His word, so learn to speak God’s Word. The angels heed God’s voice and wait for you to call upon them for help. If you want powerful angelic assistance, speak God’s Word over you. Take the blessings in Deuteronomy 28 and start putting your own name in there and declaring the words over yourself.
Muslim view about Angels
Other faiths have relevant beliefs about angels as well. The Muslims belief about angels is similar to that of Christians. Muslims believe that angels were created from light before human beings and are not divided into good and evil angels. According to Islam, angels form different cosmic hierarchies and orders and the greatest of them is Gabriel. The angels do not eat or drink and are never tired of worshiping God. This is revealed in Quran 21:20 which says, “They celebrate His praises night and day, nor do they ever slacken.”
Angels also possess great abilities given by God. They can take many different forms. In fact, the Quran describes how the Angel Gabriel helped in the form of man during Mary’s conception. Additionally, it shows how the Angel Michael is responsible for directing rain when God wishes.
Many different faiths and those who follow various spiritual paths believe in the reality of angels. You may encounter a physic who believes and turns to angels as guides for their readings. You may find a Shaman who talks with the angels and works alongside them to treat people who are in need of healing. Even those who don’t follow any particular religion or tradition believe in angels. There are many books out there that have report after report of testimonies from people who have had encounters with angels. It’s actually a very fascinating topic to follow.
If you have never seen an angel or experienced the presence of an angel, take some time daily to get quiet with yourself and from your heart communicate with the unseen world. Ask the angels assigned to protect and accompany you to somehow reveal themselves to you. Ask them for help when needed. Believe that they are there to journey this life with you. Even if they never show themselves tangibly to you, trust that they are there with you every step of your life’s journey. You’ll find that the more in tune you become to the spiritual realm, the more apt you are to feel an angel’s presence more regularly. Have fun getting to know your assigned angels.
