Encounters with Angels

Do heavenly spirits come to the aid of humans in need? These readers believe so.

WHO ARE THESE mysterious beings? They seem to come out of nowhere just when they are needed, have just what you need to solve the problem, then vanish quickly without a trace. The people who encounter them are often convinced that they are angels spirit beings who temporarily take on human from to lend a hand in time of need. Skeptics say, of course, that they are just helpful but ordinary people. Yet the reports are surprisingly consistent: no one knows where these helpers come from, and they disappear in an instant when youre not looking.

Equally frustrating to understand is that the help they lend is very often in relatively mundane circumstances. A stuck car, for instance. You would think that if a heavenly being was going to materialize to help a human (we could call it a miracle, couldnt we?), it would be in far more important matters than fixing a flat tire.

And who knows; perhaps they do assist in such important matters. And if they are spiritual beings, who are we to question their motives?

Whether you believe they are angels or not, here are some fascinating reports of these mysterious benefactors.


Angelic assistance isnt always as mundane as fixing a flat; sometimes it is literally life saving. Twenty-one year old Kimberly was inner-tubing on a back woods Wisconsin river one summer day. I was in a shallow, but fast part of the river, when my inner tube flipped out from under me, Kimberly says. The water was only shin deep, so I ran after my tube. While I was running I fell into a deep spot and got caught in a hydraulic, where water flowing over a rock or other obstacle flows down, then back onto itself in an eruption of whitewater.

I was sucked down and sucked in over my head. I struggled to reach the surface, which was mere inches away! I grabbed at the water, trying to propel myself upward and out of this water trap. When I realized my efforts were fruitless and I was about to drown, I felt an intense peacefulness and serenity fill me with a warmth I can't describe.

Suddenly, someone grabbed me by the wrist, and in one tug had me out of the deep water and standing in ankle-deep water nearby. I caught a glimpse of a blonde woman in a red flannel shirt, but when I turned to thank her for saving my life, there was no one there.


There certainly are many kind people in the world who dont hesitate to help strangers in need especially children. But was it just a kind man young Brian encountered on an April afternoon in 1999 or was he something more? Patty H. tells us that she along with her husband, their son Brian and daughter were riding the Metro Link on their way to a St. Louis Cardinals baseball game that day.

Brian had a Sharpie marker and baseball cap that he was planning on get autographs with, she says. The Metro Link stopped at Busch Stadium. All of us got off the train. Brian noticed that he dropped the marker and went back on to retrieve it. The doors to the train closed and it left the platform. My son was still on the train! Brian was only 10 years old at the time and it was his first time in the big city. We were just frantic.

All the family could do was wait for the train to loop back to the station, which took about 35 minutes. When the train finally made it back to the platform, Brian had an interesting story to tell. While he was on the train, Patty says, a black gentleman sat next to him and began to talk to him. He asked him questions and reassured him that he would be fine. Brian said he and the man were the only two people on the train. Yet when the doors to the train opened, the man had strangely disappeared. He did not go out the door. He would have had to walk past us. We believe it was my son's guardian angel.

You have your doubts? Eight years later, Patty tells us, this same mysterious man visited their son's hospital room when he was direly ill.


Here is one of those miraculous roadside assistance stories. The interesting thing about this one, according to Amanda, is that the helpful stranger looked like Jesus himself. Her experience took place in Pottstown, Pensylvania.

I have never been the real religious type, Amanda says. As a matter of fact, I often made jokes about the Bible as well as Jesus. After having compared Jesus to a fictional character one night, I drove with a friend of mine to another friend's home. Rain was pouring and the weather was unbearable. Somehow my vehicle landed in what appeared to be a river in the middle of the road I was traveling. I tried to call a couple of male friends to try to push my vehicle out. No luck. I sat crying next to my car at 3:00 a.m. in a wooded area, with absolutely no homes present.

An elderly man came out of the woods, resembling what one would assume to be Jesus: tall, skinny and bearded. He said that he would go get his tow-truck and pull my car out of the rapids. I sat in my boyfriend's vehicle as the old man drove a tractor over to my vehicle. The license plate on his tractor read: You have a friend in Jesus.

Was this a coincidence, Amanda wonders, or was Jesus showing me how non-fictional he really is?

maybe there is still more for us to learn about them


Some people never go crazy. What truly horrible lives they must lead. For anything is better than a life standing still.

Angels are sent to us by God to help us, give us hope, and spread love and charity. Everyday, you can be touched by an angel. You can also be an angel to another person
According to the Bible, Angels were created around the same time as the earth itself,
Angels are messengers. They are messengers from spirit allowing us a greater understanding and connection to Spirit.

i can have more up later

An angel is a pure spirit created by God. The Old Testament theology included the belief in angels: the name applied to certain spiritual beings or intelligences of heavenly residence, employed by God as the ministers of His will.
our Lord often spoke of angels; in the New Testament they are numerous and seven orders are mentioned: Angels, Powers, Principalities, Dominions (ations), Thrones and Archangels the Old Testament specifically mentions two others Seraph (im) and Cherub(im). God bestowed upon angels great wisdom, freedom, and power, and their many appearances in the New Testament are indication of the lead role assigned to them. Both the New Testament and Old Testament refer also to the fallen angels. The Temptation of Adam and Eve presupposes the existence of bad spirits or demons who were cast into hell from which they have no hope of redemption. Angels are purely spiritual or bodiless persons (Mt 11:30), some of whom behold the face of God and thus are in bliss (Mt 18:10)
These spiritual beings comprise the celestial court and are called angels because, according to the Bible, they carry out missions at God's command They don't decay or die, since they are spiritual beings
thats all i can say for now ^^
