What Is An Angel?
What is an Angel?
Wouldn’t it be INSANE if you had a guardian angel watching over your life? A personal guard against evil, protecting you wherever you go! But what is an angel? Do guardian angels exist? If so, do we have more than one? How do they affect our lives?
Once again, EXCELLENT questions everyone. I hope to shed some light on the subject.
1. Do Angels Exist?
According to the Bible and Jesus, yes! They do exist.
In Matthew 22:30, Jesus says:
‘At the resurrection people… will be like the angels in heaven.’
There are countless verses throughout the Bible that say angels exist. Whether you believe in angels depends on whether you believe in Jesus.
If God exists, angels also exist.
2. Do GUARDIAN Angels Exist?
Most Christians believe angels exist, but what about guardian angels? Do we each have a specific angel assigned to us by God?
In Matthew 18:10, Jesus says:
‘Beware that you don’t look down on any of these little ones. For I tell you that in heaven their angels are always in the presence of my heavenly Father.’
When Jesus says ‘little ones’ He is referring to children. So He is saying these specific children have specific angels in Heaven assigned to them.
Psalm 91:11 says:
‘For he will order his angels to protect you wherever you go.’
God has MULTIPLE angels that protect YOU!
3. What Do guardian angels Do?
The primary purpose of angels is to strengthen YOU in YOUR purpose for God!
When the Devil had finished tempting Jesus in the wilderness, the angels came to Him and strengthened Him in His purpose.
Matthew 4:11 says:
‘Then the devil went away, and angels came and took care of Jesus.’
Angels give you the strength and motivation you need to fulfill your DESTINY!
Hebrews 1:14 says:
‘Are not all angels ministering spirits sent to serve those who will inherit salvation?’
Angels can be like guiding lights, giving you supernatural wisdom and patience when you need it most. They guide and protect you in everything you do!
Isn’t that a comforting thought?
Angels minister to us, meaning they teach us in ways we often don’t realize.
BUT angels don’t just help anyone!
Notice it says, ‘sent to serve those who will inherit salvation.’
The more you’re connected to God and the more you pray and read truth, the more they can work in your life.
Prayer to God ACTIVATES assistance from angels!
In 2 King 19, King Hezekiah was threatened by another king who said he would destroy Israel with his army. King Hezekiah prayed for Gods help because he couldn’t defeat their army on his own.
The this happened… (ps. this is one of my favorite verses in the Bible)
2 Kings 19:35 says:
‘That night the angel of the Lord went out to the Assyrian camp and killed 185,000 Assyrian soldiers. When the surviving Assyrians woke up the next morning, they found corpses everywhere.’
ONE prayer! ONE angel! COMPLETE DESTRUCTION!!
4. Angels vs Demons
Angels work in groups to protect you. In the same way, demons work in groups to destroy you!
Angels are basically the exact opposite of demons.
The primary aim of a Demon is to stop you from serving Jesus effectively. They destroy your purpose! Whereas the primary aim of an angel is to strengthen us in our purpose for God!
Demons come only to HARASS us, TORMENT us and LIE to us! While angels COMFORT us, GUIDE us, and speak TRUTH to us!
I would HIGHLY recommend reading my article about demons here.
Knowing how Demons affect your life is MASSIVE! It is VITAL to know WHO you are fighting against!
5. Other Things You Should Know About Angels
Angels love you with an unconditional love, like God. They don’t judge your past problems and always know what will strengthen you and what will harm you.
Angels inspire you, they motivate you, and SPARK your passion!
They are also always connected to God! God can tell them things at any time, anywhere. Just like with us! Except we sometimes don’t listen…
They are more beautiful than anyone could ever imagine! No artwork in all the Earth could portray their true beauty.
Even though the Bible doesn’t talk about angels in much detail, it is safe to assume all of the above is true. The story of Hezekiah and the Assyrian soldiers is also a good indication of this.
Guardian angels exist.
Angels strengthen you in your purpose for God and are insanely powerful!
Demons are the exact opposite of angels, read my article about demons here.
Angels have supernatural superpowers all over the shop! They’re super smart, they have immense power and can inspire us to achieve what we could only ever dream of!
ANGELS ARE AWESOME!
