Have You Seen An Angel

Angels appeared to people all throughout scripture and I've heard or read about people, in modern times, believing they've seen angels. Does anyone here believe they've ever seen one?

20 years ago a black man came to my door asking for recycled cans. Thought it was odd he had frames on with no glass in them. He was odd somehow. Too carefree and peaceful to be asking for cans and seemed not at all like someone in trouble. I told him to wait and I rummaged through recycling gave him all I had in a big bag. I was very poor and could have used the money for those cans but did not have heart to turn him away. I said goodbye and then reopened the door to see him again and he was absolutely gone. It has stuck in my mind ever since and I think he may have been an angel.

I was woke from a dead sleep last week by, what I beleived to be an angel. I'm six foot and he was about one foot taller then me. He had white hair,long white shirt and white eyes. He told me he had been sent to take me to heaven. I ask what would happen to my wife and kids and he said I didn't have to go now if I didn't want to, I could wait and go when Jesus returned. I ask him if I would regret not going now and all he said was, as long as I made it there would never be any regrets. He then floated straight up and out of sight.I was left with a sence of peace that is still with me today.

I was helped by an angel when I first believed. Jesus sent him to me when I was completely homeless and terrified. This man got off of the city bus and walked me into a USA storage store, and told me that God was going to help me. He told the manager I had just received Christ, and that I needed some help, then he walked by me and said that God was going to help me again. I looked at the manager, then towards the front door, which was a glass storefront, and the man had literally disappeared within a second. The door was swinging shut. I even ran out into the parking lot, but the guy was gone! The manager of that store gave me $100 bill, and told me to show up at church that Sunday. Jesus is so awsome!!!

100% Yes

To the north, I looked and saw seven with lit white candles in their left hands and on their knees and felt an overwhelming love come over me. By the way, at that time, I did not think about believing in a God nor did I read the bible nor did I care.
Boy, do I now!
My name called 3 times before I looked and saw and felt and believed. Just thinking of it, to this day make me cry! Like right now.
God bless you

I didnt think a prophet had to guess.
---joe on 1/21/09

Anne, I'm a prophet and can guess ages :))

She signs Angel11 that's why I guessed.

Be proud of her - she's maturing in the right direction. Give her a hug for me.
---Paul2 on 1/7/09

Paul~ My goodness you're very perceptive, yes, she's 11. Thanks again and take care!
---Anne on 1/7/09

Anne, life is too complicated so best is to swim against the current when the need arises and to do our best to maintain peace with God, with ourselves and those around us.

From the sound of her voice, Angel sounds very young - is she 11 years old? I can detect that she's a sweetie. God bless her.
---Paul2 on 1/7/09

Paul~ It is great to hear of the sweet, 'silly', and loving relationship you share with your wife. I love to be like that too, and it is great to be blessed in that way. That is nice you help each other and that you help your wife. That is how relationships should be. Good for you!

Yes, my 'angel' amazes me with some of her words of wisdom at her young age. Thanks for the nice comments!
---Anne on 1/7/09

Anne, there are a few tricks of the trade like when I tell my wife that the coffee she makes tastes better than the one I make. Only problem is she has an oriental brain and she's impossible to fool :))

I've always believed and preached that the silly things help keep the relationship healthy. We do things for each other and I help her in cooking, cleaning, etc.

Your Angel seems to have a good, clean heart and brain. Obviously, she has a good Mom and Dad and it shows.
---Paul2 on 1/6/09

Paul~ You're a hoot! I wonder if my husband says those types of things to me because he knows I'll make him coffee too? lol just joking.

It's great you and your wife know how to have a woderful marriage and I'm blessed in that way too. Thanks for the nice reply to my daughter 'Angel', that was very kind.
---Anne on 1/5/09

I sent a reply but must probably got lost.

Yes Anne, when I look at my wife I see an Angel and I tell her that too. I also tell her that to me she's the most beautiful woman on earth.

By saying all these things, she always makes me a coffee while I'm on the PC :))
---Paul2 on 1/4/09

Paul that was hilarious...that should be on the humor blog! Now, do you see an 'angel' every time you look at your wife? Now that would be one sweet marriage. :)
---Anne on 1/2/09

My wife sees an angel everyday when she looks at me :)))
---Paul2 on 12/31/08

i clearly saw (in the spirit) an angel concerning a loved one (though several miles away) be picked up and flashed to heaven.
- other than that, i've been strongly aware of an angel nearby in certain situations. i say 'strongly aware' because i couldnt see it like one sees people.
like the prophet who knew that the angels and chariots surrounded them, but he asked God for his servants eyes to be opened so he would know that they were there too.
- i've also had an angel touch my hand to get my attention when i was typing. i later found the scripture that says that someone had been physically touched by an angel.
- apart from the first mentioned, every awareness i had of them was concerning my safety.
---opalgal on 12/30/08

I believe I saw angels on several occasions.I was having a bad day and went into gas station.A man stood behind the counter and watched me.Went to the counter and he continued staring at me eye to eye with a smile on his face,his eyes seemed so angelic.I handed him money and instead of taking the money, he held my hand still eye to eye.He told me to have a good day while still holding my hand.Found out later on when I asked about where he has been that the man I described never worked there.

2/... The other time was a couple at a friend's shop. I obeyed a prompting to take a book there with me, but did not give it to them. We all exchanged names and addresses but never saw or heard from them again. As my friend was going up the stairs that night, he stopped and looked down at me and said "Helen, I think they were angels". I agreed with him. I really do think they were!
---Helen_5378 on 5/21/08

Very soon after I got saved, a young man came to my door on an extremely hot day and asked for a drink of water. I gave him a glassful, ignoring the prompting to give him the whole bottle. I have never forgotten not giving him the bottle. Was he an angel? Could have been - it never happened before and never happened since. (continued...)
---Helen_5378 on 9/15/07

I have seen an angel It was enormious and stood at my bedroom door in the middle of the night. Even though I could only see the out lines of this angel I felt its warmth and beauty. The next morning my husband awake having a feeling there was something outside our door. I told him what happen. How amazing GOD and his angels are!! I cant wait to see this Angel again.

Angles come in many ways. My husband had a seize while telling our friends that he quit drinking. (He has been sober for over 10 years. Two nurses told us what to do for him until the ambulance came. We never saw those two women again. Linda4843
---Linda on 10/20/06

There have and will always be angels. Who is to say what form an angel might take in his works. The Bible says the are good and bad angels. I can say I owe life to the angels that God sends to protect us, especially the Archangel Michael.
Thank you Lord Jesus for being so good to us all.AMEN.

Yes I have seen angels several times.I have been in several situations that if it hadn't been for an angel I won't be here at all. I can and will go into this more if you ask. But It is the same OLD story and I fell down hard. I do know that Jesus is still holding me up because I can look behind me and I still see 1 set of foot prints.
---Edna on 10/20/06

Oke ... I though it was you who was saying I was being politically incorrect, or racist. But even so, there is no universal perception of good-looking.
My daughters freinds have widely varying views as to which men are good-looking.
To say that angels will be good looking in a physical sense is nonsense, because it cannot be universally true

Raine ... It is interesting that you can't find my picture.
My profile has been inexplicably removed, and I am unable to rejoin. What did I do?
---alan8869_of_UK on 10/18/06

We've all heard you're good looking, Alan. I can't find your picture on here, so I'm just going on hearsay. Some have it, some don't.
"Took myself to the picture show, sat myself in the very front row, got so fresh I slapped my face...." Back to angels, I know they are in our midst. I wonder if they find humans odd creatures. Monster truck rallys. Skateboarding down handrails. Jumping out of helicopters and skiing off of a cliff.
---Raine on 10/17/06

Alan, relax. We don't always have to be politically correct on these blogs. There are people who are physically good-looking and most people will judge them thus.
---Okebaram on 10/16/06

Oke ... I used race as one example of the different ways of being "good-looking"
Some find a thin person good-looking, others see bulkiness as necessary to qualify for that definition.
Now, if you meant "good-looking in God's eyes" I would agree with your definition, but I think you were referring to physical looks, and that is where different people have different ideas.
I have been called handsome by some. How can they think that, when I and most regard me as ugly?

Earl, my statement on 10/13/06 was directed to you not Eloy. i don't know what I was thinking when I mistakenly wrote Eloy's name.

Eloy, my apologies.
---Okebaram on 10/15/06

Alan what is foolish about my statement? Good-looking means good-looking not anything to do with race or whatever you said. If you don't have anything edifying to say, why speak?
---Okebaram on 10/15/06

I really appreciate the replies here. To my knowledge, I've never seen an angel, but I've had multiple experiences of good samaratins being in the right place at the right (desperate) time. They didn't vanish into thin air, but each left with no way for me to contact them to say thanks. Though I don't think any were angels, this blog has made me reflect on each one and I'm thankful to God that our paths crossed. Keep the stories coming. I don't post much, but I'm enjoying each one.
---AlwaysOn on 10/14/06

Oke ... How foolish your definition is!
Good-looking? In whose eyes? Have they Jewish or caucasian oriental indian or other features? If it is any of these, most of the world would find them not good-looking.

I left my workplace really late one night and got to the bus stop near my home at around midnight. I felt really scared walking alone. I saw a very tall man. He was dressed all in white and was very good looking. He walked up to me and told me that he would walk me home and to not be afraid. I was so comforted by his presence. When we got to my home, I was going to thank him but he disappeared. I really believe he was an angel.
---Nock on 10/14/06

Eloy, angels have their own identifying faces, just like men do. Their features resemble men: tall, good-looking men, with the glory of God shining from them. (They don't [necessarily] have wings like most people think). I haven't seen an angel in the physical form. (Guess that questions my description). I have only seen them and Jesus appear in dreams and visions. I long to see an angel physically like some people have.
---Okebaram on 10/13/06

greetings,for okebaram,are all angels alike ?have you seen any?
---earl on 10/13/06

Be careful with this question. Some people have had encounters with demons that they think were angels.

I was 10, my sister was 8. She was recovering from a lengthy hospital stay. We shared a bedroom. I was awakened by her laboring to breathe one night. I got up, turned on the light and saw at least 10 angels surrounding her bed, diligently praying over her. One looked directly at me and knew I could see. She did not smile and I knew in that moment she was doing a job--praying and interceding for my sister. She was not there for me. I was nonetheless comforted. My sister was shortly healed completely.

I have seen angels flying up in the sky. And they have wings coming out of the calves, as they fly swirling around going in and out of the clouds.
---Eloy on 9/16/06

I have seen angels many times. On a day soon after our house fire I was trying to get money out of the bank but my account was locked. A young man came up to me and said "I know that you are going to think this is strange but god told me to give this to you" It was the exact amount of money I was trying to take out!

Believe it or not I just saw one this morning I have felt like am I really yours God and said last night I know your word says you will never leave me, have not heard from him in 3 months. My daughter saw the flicker of light and asked what is that and I said let me look and when I looked out the window I saw the angel, so he was letting me know he is here, and also it's special because today is my birthday.

#2 But realizing that it was almost dinner and he had no money I gave him $40. He pulled out of the rest stop ahead of me and I pulled behind him. As we were going down the highway we started around a trailer truck with me right behind him. When suddenly I realize that he and his automobile(a old junker) had disappeared right before my eyes. I was unnerved and begin to praise the Lord, for I knew I had dealt with an angel

#1 After signing lucrative oil contracts I was driving from Lexington, Kentucky to St. Louis, Missouri. After pulling over at a rest stop, while buying a soda a man approached me and told me that he had car trouble, and he was trying to get the Mount Vernon Illinois, and ask if I could help him with gas money? I started to give him $20 and told him how glad I was he had asked me.

"there is a order of beings midway between human and angels who also labor for our spiritual progress." (earl on 9/14/06)
Earl, please tell us who the order of beings are?
---Leon on 9/15/06

You know, I used to not pay much attention to stories of angels. They were usually from non-Christians who were into other religions and philosophies I didn't care to explore, so I ignored them. It's refreshing to hear so many Christians give accounts that they believe to be encounters with them.
I've never seen one, to my knowledge, but I'm constantly on the lookout. Thank you all for sharing your stories.

3. Then, after the exam, we went back to the room and looked at the picture on the floor. We were amazed that it fell of because it was fixed to the wall. To make it fall off someone had to force it. I knew it was an angel.
---Dawn on 9/14/06

2. But somehow while I was sleeping I switched off the alarm. Suddenly, at about 15 to 7 a picture that was on my wall above my head fell off and got stucked between my bed and the wall with a noise that woke me up. Since I was dead asleep I didn't care. A few minutes later the picture fell down to the floor then I was really awake, looked at my watch: 10 to 7 and the bus left at 7. We made it to the bus stop in time, sat for the exam and all of us passed it.

1.This happened when I was at university. I lived in a dorm sharing a room w/ 2 girls. Once before Christmas we had an exam to take which was very very difficult to pass. We didn't sleep all night, we were all studying, I set the alarm clock to 4:45 am! to have some time to revise also in the morning.

Mu husband has seen angels from time to time. there have been times when we have had a very special annointed service and he has said he has seen angels behind the pulpit surronding the speaker. He tells us that they are from 5-7 feet tall, different colors, white, grey, etc. They don't have wings but seem to have robes with cape sleeves that fan out when arms are raised. He says they are a beautiful sight.

Angels are probably more common than some of us think. We are told to be hospitable to strangers because we don't know if they may be angels in disguise. Scriptursally, these angels are capable of consuming food and many are sent into our lives for protection.

(4.)Other experiences are when I "received help" in some cases being "very close to death",help out from no where!This is common in my family.I believe I saw the Lord's angel once in a dream,just one time, and I had to actually think to myself, was that a angel? his features I will never forget, he was silent and watching me.My minister see's them often(he has all the 9 gift's of the Spirit,which includes the gift of DISCERNMENT),they play a big endtime role in the harvest of souls.

(3.)Nevertheless, no injures, the scar disappeared quickly! I am convinced that my angel was protecting me! I didn't see him , If I did, it might of scared me to death, I was already frightened! I think that many times Christians don't see the angel , because the angel senses fear.

(2.) I have many personal experiences in my life, many are which when I was a child, it seemed like the devil was trying hard to take me out, but God said not so!

I don't remember crying, no doubt I was too scared.
