Angels - What I think about these creatures of Heaven

Many people in the world believe in angels, others do not. Whether you believe or not, the truth is that angles are all around us. I know that Angles are real and are active in our lives from personal experience. So let’s take a closer look at these other creatures of God…

Angels fight for our souls. They war against the powers of darkness. In his book Angels written by Billy Graham, the author points out that there are three main points one needs to know about angles. First off, angels are real, secondly, angels are active in the gospel and thirdly, angels are active in our lives today.
On the first point in his Billy Graham states that angels are real. Angels are nearer to you, if you are a believer, than you may think. Very few would argue that Demonic activity is increasing in our world very rapidly. God’s angels are around us now more than ever in this time of need. Even god himself said in his word that he has given his angels charge over us to keep us in all our ways. On their hands they will bear you lest you dash your foot against a stone.
On the second point in his book Billy Graham states that is angels were active in the gospel. In fact, Angels are found all through the bible. Whether they are delivering messages or fighting wars, they are there. After all it was an angel who told Mary she would conceive Jesus. It was also an angel who held a flaming sword across a path, and made a donkey talk. Angels are mentioned throughout the bible. So unless you think Gods word is a lie, Angels are real.

Angels are active in our lives today is the third point Billy Graham covers in his book Angels. There are many stories of angels appearing to people in our society. And there are many things that seem impossible that happen. Some people say it was angels some don't. Angels are relevant in our lives today even if you think they aren’t. God “put a hedge about me” this hedge is angels. God put them around us because they are Gods ‘secret agents’. Angels are real and God says it in his word. They are used as his messengers or as his warriors. Whatever they are used for they are sent by god. God said he would put his angels about us. He has been faithful with this promise, so angels are around us every day.

Finally I know that Angles are real because I was visited by an angelic visitor several years ago when I was suffering from a head injury. I had been having seizures and such for months and then one night I was visited and was told that God had answered my prayers and that I was healed. I have been seizure-free since that night. It is indeed a weird and wonderful world in which we walk!
