In his cunning, he disguises himself as an angel of light 2 Cor. More will be said on this below. The good and loyal angels are the mighty servants of God who constantly serve him always doing His will. In addition, Matthew Satan, in tempting Christ, quoted Some would claim that this Old Testament passage should not be applied in modern times, but the author of Hebrews does not seem to draw that distinction.
That they are ministering spirits who minister to the saints is presented as a general truth of the Bible and should not be restricted to Bible times. Also, Scripture suggests that Michael, the archangel, is particularly involved in ministry to Israel. Concerning the reference to Michael in Daniel One of the chief princes shows a hierarchy among the angels cf.
I had been left there with the kings of Persia. The good angel cf. But the battle between good and evil angels over the control of nations continues see v. Regarding accounts of angelic protection, Dr. Kenneth Gangel gives the following account which is similar to others I have heard about, especially with missionaries: A veteran missionary friend of mine now retired tells the story about a woman missionary alone on a compound in northern Africa during a riot by one of the local tribes.
She hid in a closet and prayed as warriors advanced along the dusty road toward the houses where the white intruders lived. Amazingly, she never heard them. No one ever entered her building, and there was no evidence of any turmoil. My friend learned later that the warriors, who intended to kill everyone at the missionary compound and burn it to the ground, instead retreated when they found the compound guarded by tall warriors dressed in white and carrying large swords.
Another and similar account was also reported by a medical missionary at his home church in Michigan: While serving at a small field hospital in Africa, I traveled every two weeks by bicycle through the jungle to a nearby city for supplies. This required camping overnight half way. On one of these trips, I saw two men fighting in the city. One was seriously injured, so I treated him and witnessed to him of the Lord Jesus Christ.
I then returned home without incident. Upon arriving in the city several weeks later, I was approached by the man I had treated earlier. He told me he had known that I carried money and medicine. We waited for you to go to sleep and planned to kill you and take your money and drugs. Just as we were about to move into your campsite, we saw that you were surrounded by 26 armed guards.

I laughed at this and said I was certainly all alone out in that jungle campsite. My Jave friends also saw them and we all counted them. It was because of those guards that we were afraid and left you alone. The man in the congregation told this side of the story: I was preparing to play golf. As I put my bag in the car, I felt the Lord leading me to pray for you. In fact, the urging was so strong that I called the men of this church together to pray for you. Will all of those men who met with me that day please stand? The men who had met that day to pray together stood—there were 26 of them!
Again we ask, were these angels? While I cannot verify this story, I have no doubt whatsoever that it could be true. As angels were sent by God to provide sustenance for the Lord at the end of his forty days in the wilderness Matt. Some would include the provision of bread and water for Elijah 1 Kings As an illustration of possible angelic provision, Sue Bohlin gives the following account: Ware, I am bringing what you asked for. The young man slipped away, and even though Rev. Ware watched at the window to their building, the man never exited. He just disappeared Anderson, Joan Wester.

How to Tell If You’ve Encountered an Angel in Physical Form
They had been warned not to eat the food on the train, but they had taken very little food with them and Connie was so famished she decided to take her chances. She ate some curried mutton, and was soon extremely ill. After arriving at the orphanage, Connie went to bed where she remained for three days.
It was not until it was time to move on to the next orphanage that they realized she was desperately ill. They realized she needed to get to a hospital fast so they set out for the nearest one which was three hours away. First her fingers then her knees and toes curled inward and her facial muscles contracted so she was unable to speak. Finally she found herself paralyzed as the jeep bounced along the primitive road.
They were concerned, thinking she might not make it because she was so dehydrated. As the jeep pulled to a stop, Connie tried to protest. She was concerned about the rampant AIDS epidemic in these remote areas and the practice of reusing needles. As the group made their way into the building which was well lit and very clean, an Indian man, dressed in white shirt and baggy pants, greeted them in perfect English. I have some electrolytes here in this packet. This water has already been boiled.
When they reached the hospital an hour-and-a-half later, her muscles had relaxed and she was able to walk into the hospital.

But that is only half the story. Numbers of times they appeared to announce an important message. They announced the birth of John the Baptist and Jesus Luke 1: In the Tribulation, God will use them to announce key events cf. Beware, therefore, of anyone claiming to have new revelation as given by an angel or of anyone claiming to be an angel with new revelation. Remember, Satan is a deceiver with his own angels of deceit promoting false doctrine 2 Cor.
But such is not the picture we find in our modern day fascination with angels. Surely it is comforting to know that God may protect, provide, and encourage us is supernatural ways, but this does not always guarantee such deliverance and certainly and we should never presume on this provision of God. So having consider the various ways angels minister, we should keep in mind that God does not always deliver us from danger or supply our needs in such miraculous ways whether by angels or by His direct intervention.
Why did he not linger and how on earth did he disappear so quickly.

Was this boy my guardian angel in disguise? YOUR angels want you to notice them but this cannot happen until you open your heart and mind to them. Anyone can see angels. All you need to do is accept that your angels are always with you, ask for their help, or some kind of proof that they are close and then keep your mind and heart open to messages. It could come through the words of a friend, through a song you hear on the radio, through a feeling of comfort or, most special of all, a calm, clear certainty that you are not alone. Every morning when you get up and at night before you go to sleep, spend a few moments thinking about your guardian angel and asking for their help.
One way is to startfocusing on your daily routines with love and joy. Deep breathing from your stomach instead of your chest, especially when you are outdoors, can increase feelings of peace and clarity. You could also think about the people you love and everything in life you have to be grateful for. Begin to pay attention to what you feel and where in your body you feel it. The secret to unlocking this ability is to allow yourself to dream, visualise and think in pictures.
Choose a picture you like. Sit comfortably and try to memorise every detail. Then close your eyes and imagine you are slowly melting into the picture. Stand in your imagined picture and take a walk there. Anything you love doing that takes you to a place of peace, calm and joy makes a clearer channel for your angels to reach you; use those moments of quiet refl ection to ask your angels for guidance. The more you practise these techniques, the more you will begin to recognise their divine guidance.
