Another realm that facinates me are Angels. The world over has a tale to tell when it comes to Angels, there’s just too many witness accounts, too many stories etc., to just disregard this subject. Here’s an article I ran across for you to read and consider…
Are Angels Around Us?
by KC Evans
Are Angels ambassadors from a Supreme Being? There are many different variations on where the first angel made its appearance. Most religions have some type of winged or flying human. But I always thought true angels would have that certain presence about them that would make you know they was not just a winged flying human. These three of the major western religions, Christianity, Judaism, and Islam believe that angels are the intervening force between us and a Supreme Being. In Buddhism and Hinduism angels are also big players. Angels are mentioned in the bible as early as Genesis as the “Shining Ones” . Christian art begins depicting them somewhere between 306-337 A.D., and some of the other religions have had them since before the 14th century.
Possibly the best known angel is the fallen angel named Satan, Beelzebub, Lucifer, you know the “old Devil himself”. Even most atheists would recognize the name of that angel. Thru history many angels have made their appearance but some of them are more well known than others. There is the Angel that appeared for the birth of Jesus, the Angel Of Presence, heck there was even an Angel reportedly seen at Valley Forge by General George Washington. Then there is the Seven Archangels: Michael the warrior, Gabriel our messenger to God, Uriel the angel of death or transformation, and Raphael does healing, these are the four most common of the seven.
So, are Angels ambassadors from a Supreme Being? Angels are supposed to guide us, protect us, heal us, and bring us messages from heaven. There are angels to do just about anything you need help in doing. According to history there will always be an angel around so we are never truly alone in this world. Angels have gained in popularity that has not been seen since around 1900’s, and its no wonder. Time magazine reports 69% of Americans believe they exist. In our chaos filled world doesn’t the idea of angels amongst us, help fill us with just a little bit of peace. It helps re-affirm that even as busy as god must be, we are not alone.
