Did I Meet An Angel Last Year

Last year I met a girl at a hospital in huntington, wv, not long after my grandma had died. Even though I never told her, she knew my name, and she comforted me and told me my grandma was with God and not to worry. Does anyone else think she was an angel? gabra7947

Hi,it is possible you saw an angel.I have seen angels,even death angels though I could not get close to them because they disapeared as I moved towards them.They do exist and sometimes we are allowed to witness them.

Are angels of a specific and immutable gender? We humans are male and female, yet both created in God's image. But the reason we have both is for procreation. God only has One Son who has always been. Angels have typically appeared as men in the Bible because it was a male dominated world, but where does it say that Angels can only be male?

why is it so hard to believe that those who pass away do not see Jesus Christ and are taught His gospel. Angels are messengers to deliver messages from God that we need to hear in our lives. Jesus taught the souls in prison and that is biblical. we know for a fact that paradise and the spirit prison exist. the bible teaches them. we wait for the judgment to know if we will return to His kingdom or the Fathers or be cast into outer darkness. paradise and the spirit prison are not His kingdom.

Just a thought.How can we say this is an angel of God? Myself I don't think it was. Why would a angel of God say your grandma was with God, When that great judgement day has not come yet,and the book of life has not been open. So how does this angel know whats in it.I do believe in angels and demons. But I also believe your mind can and will play tricks on you sometimes just to make you feel the way you want.

Ed, don't stereotype what a genuinely kind person should look like.

Gabra7947, it may have been a Christian, Spirit-filled girl whom God used. (I was Spirit-filled at 9, and God used me). It wasn't an angel. Angels will only appear in the image of men, not women or children. (Gabra you owe me one; this statement I just made could put me in a lot of trouble with other bloggers :] ).

Don't fear angels. For me the people who are most Christian and most full of Love - are those people who are the most normal in life (with no weird secrets that people of the world, with their brilliant but superficial charm, are able to hide). People who are vulnerable and feel guilty, but who always put others first, and are not frighetened to say what they think but are also kind, encouraging, calm, gentle sense of humour and so on. Above all they think of others not themselves.
---Ed on 5/14/07

an evil and perverted generation attends churches today to praise God. On one hand they say "By their fruits ye shall know them," then on the other hand they say angels are demons and can't appear to people. angels were in the tomb of Christ. Angels led the early israelites. were they evil and demons too. people are quick to judge everything not agreeing with them or a church as evil. you should look in the mirror yourselves. you may be shocked to see whose image you reflect back.
---ashley on 5/14/07

Not all angels are angels. Some are fallen and people better not feel good around them. Even better not to have God allow them to visit you.
Also, I don't think that Baalam felt uplifted when his spiritual eyes were opened and he saw one. I tend to think fear would better describe his feeling.
Personally, I fear them that are of the Lord.
---Frank on 5/14/07

ashley, In certain cases the(I feel good presence) may be enough. But when it comes to an angel giving a Revelation, the way of telling if the angel is true is if what the angel reveals connects with the word of God. No doubt the abgel that visited Jospeh Smith had Him feel at peace and calm. It doesn't make the angel an angel of God. We are told to "test the Spirit to see if they are of God."
---Matthew on 5/14/07

When we aren't doing that we are extremely vulnerable to the Devil and his angels who "masquerade as an angel of light". Don't think for one second a demon can't make you feel calm and at peace. Angels always glorify God and His word. They never contradict His word. Is the angel condoning activites or beliefs in your life that are not in the Bible(Mormon beliefs for example)? If the answer is yes then it is not an angel of God. What they do,say,act always harmonizes with the Word.
---Matthew on 5/14/07

"they are positive and uplift our spirits. you always feel calm and peace around them, not doubt, hostility or anger".
Well said.
---Ed on 5/14/07

The scriptures teach "beware who ye entertain, because it could be an angel from God." Angels are both male and female and do not have wings as many profess. they look like you and I. I know. I have entertained angels and learned truth. My faith and love for Jesus Christ grew substantially. you can tell God's servants. they are positive and uplift our spirits. you always feel calm and peace around them, not doubt, hostility or anger.

I do not know that she was, but I believe that it is possible. My mother believes that she met an angel in church once, he was a very nice young man and that was the only time he had ever been seen there. My father was away at work and my mom was stressed out bringing five young children to church alone. He settled us down with a soft word and made my mother feel at peace and able to enjoy Mass.

"...You will never find angels referred to as SHE, or HER!" --Wendell on 5/19/05

--I figured that too, until a Christian friend from the blogs mentioned: (Zechariah 5:9-11). It's possible that most of the angels are male -or- that female angels rarely come down to earth, it's interresting that Scriptures say the female angels in Zechariah's vision had wings, the "winged" angels usually stay in Heaven. God Bless!
---Mrs._Morgan on 5/13/07

It takes a very still mind to receive the promptings of the spirit. An angel,maybe. Jesus Christ was not recognized at the tomb until he spoke Mary's name. Believe her. Your grandma is safe and you are also.
---gregg4933 on 5/12/07

Everything made on earth is the same as in heaven.
Angels are both male and female.
They are spirits and they can fly..there are many differnt types of Angels who have differnt jobs to do..just like we do here.
When they come to earth they look normal and appear in any sex..they have the ability to do this.
The fallen angels had the ability even to change into human form before God put a stop to Noah's time.
For this reason it is important to Love everyone the same.

Anything is possible. Angels can and do take many forms and I'm not going to presume to pontificate about what angels do and do not do. How can anyone say for sure that the beggar woman they helped--or despised--was not really an angel in disguise? Hebrews 13:2

If God granted you this unusual consolation, give Him the glory and thanks, and go on.
---Jack on 5/28/05

When you see pictures of female-looking angels with wings they are toatally false. Amgels are not only male, but they DON'T have wings!
---Wendell on 5/19/05

God made angels in "HIS" image - not "HER" image! Angels are all male! Numbers 22:23, "And the ass saw the angel of the LORD standing in the way, and "HIS" sword drawn in "HIS" hand: and the ass turned aside out of the way, and went into the field: and Balaam smote the ass, to turn her into the way." You will never find angels referred to as SHE, or HER!
---Wendell on 5/19/05

Rebecca, where did you get the idea that angels can be male and female? Sorry, you got this one wrong!

Angels can be both male and female. We really don't know how many we come in connect with and don't even know it. Angels are messegers from God. this angel delivered a message from God to you. to comfort you in your time of need.
---Rebecca_D on 5/13/05

Altai, I assume that you want proof that there are angels, not angel-girls. All angels are male!
Genesis 16:7, "And the angel of the LORD found her by a fountain of water in the wilderness, by the fountain in the way to Shur."
Genesis 19:1, "And there came two angels to Sodom at even; and Lot sat in the gate of Sodom: and Lot seeing them rose up to meet them; and he bowed himself with his face toward the ground;"
Cherubim and Seraphim are not angels!
---Wendell on 5/12/05

Thank God that He comforted you, which is the most important thing.God is greater than our comprehension, to Balaam he used a donkey to speak and he sents angels at times.You could have encountered an angel or it could have been a human being operating under the gift of the Holy spirit.Look to God in admiration, for He cares for you.
---Dean on 5/11/05

I personally believe that God sends us angels in the times when we need Him, sometimes we see them and sometime not. Now whether the girl was an angel or just a human prophet of God I don't know, but I do know that I was blessed with an angel one day and it changed me forever.

---sunshine on 5/8/05

I am sure you met an angel. I have had a few experiences in my life when I am certain that I have had them minister to me as well. It was always when I was in a very sad or dark valley and always when I was asking God for some kind of break. He sent someone in to minister to me and I never saw them again. One knew without any clues from me that I had been in the military and he knew what I needed to hear at that time as a direct answer to specific prayer. Take comfort in the word you were given and live your life in a manner that will honor your grandma. You will get to see her again. ;)
---Julie on 5/7/05

If we are to believe that she was an angel we are also to believe in another dimension where another substance is inhabiting this space and time. Jesus Christ told Mary, 'Do not touch me yet, I have not ascended to the Father.' But when he appeared to Thomas he said, 'Put your finger here; see my hands. Reach out your hand and put it into my side. Stop doubting and believe.' Is it because Mary believed?
Just a train of thought.

The Bible says that we have entertained angels unaware....we can't always have the exact answer for everything that happens to us in life. God is always full of surprises in ways to comfort us and give us hope....take it as that. God is good.
---Karen on 5/7/05

Wow! What an experience. Yes I do beleive that ou saw an angel from God. She was there to assure you that your grandma was in GOds hands and not to worry about her anymore. You to will be with GOd and you grandma again someday. Just remeber to "TRUST IN THE LORD"
