Have You Talked To An Angel?

There are over 200 instances in Scripture describing angels.  In doing my research I was amazed at how few believe that angels can actually talk to people.  Over the years I have heard stories concerning supernatural events being told that only an angel could have done what happened.

I read that an angel would only talk to you through telepathy.  They have no lips, lungs or means of communicating.  Scripture time and again talks about an angel appeared and talked to a person.  Then there are people who worship angels and saints.  The Bible indicates this is wrong to do.

Hebrews 13:2 – “Don’t forget to show hospitality to strangers, for some who have done this have entertained angels without realizing it!”

Acts 12:7 – “Suddenly an angel of the Lord appeared and a light shone in the cell. He struck Peter on the side and woke him up. “Quick, get up!” he said, and the chains fell off Peter’s wrists.”  It doesn’t sound like it was something Peter imagined.

Acts 8:26 – 28 – “Now an angel of the Lord said to Philip, ‘Go south to the road—the desert road—that goes down from Jerusalem to Gaza.’  So he started out, and on his way he met an Ethiopian eunuch, an important official in charge of all the treasury of the Kandake (which means “queen of the Ethiopians”). This man had gone to Jerusalem to worship, and on his way home was sitting in his chariot reading the Book of Isaiah the prophet.”

Peter was struck indicating that it was a person.  In the case of Philip it is possible that he imagined hearing a voice, for those who do not believe angels can talk or be seen.  Yet there are too many Scriptures describing that they talked to an angel for me not to believe angels can talk and can be seen.  In Hebrews it is very clear angels appeared as people and may have not been recognized.

We have a couple that we meet with regularly and all kinds of supernatural things happen to them.  The most recent was a trip into northern Arizona.  They had traveled a number of miles off the main highway when they hit a large rock that was covered by dirt.  It jammed their muffler and drive-line rendering the motor home incapable of moving.  They used their cell phone and called their business’ secretary in Las Vegas.  They asked her to locate someone in Williams, AZ that could send them a taxi to the main road to pick up the husband. Also he needed to know where to go to get what was needed to fix the motor home.  A few minutes later they were given a phone number to call.

They called and a man answered. The husband told him the situation and what he needed.  The man responded by telling him a taxi would be at the main road within an hour.  He told him where to get the muffler and to get the drive-line fixed.  He said he would make an appointment and when he got there just tell them that I referred you.  They travel with an ATV vehicle that he rode to the main road and waited for the taxi to pick him up.  Within 45 minutes the taxi arrived and he was off to his first appointment.  When he arrived to pick up the muffler he said he had an appointment.  No one had made an appointment but they had the muffler.  That seemed rather odd because he was told they would be expecting him.

He went to the next appointment to get the drive-line fixed.  There was no appointment but they were able to take care of the problem.  He went back to the main road and his wife is there to meet him.  The husband, who is mechanically knowledgeable, fixed the motor home and it is ready to go.  They are marveling at how helpful the gentleman that they contacted had been and proceeded to call him and thank him for his help.   They called and the phone was out of service.  They had been given the man’s address in case they needed his help when arriving in Williams.  They decided to get a gift certificate to a restaurant in Williams.  They mailed it with a thank you note to the address they were given in Williams. It was returned stating there was no such address.   How would you explain what happened?

Relatives, friends and acquaintances have told me similar stories over the years.  Mostly when they were in dire need without any means of having a problem solved and no help was available.  It was a cold freezing night with icy roads and they had slipped into the ditch and were unable to get out.  Out of nowhere a wrecker pulls up and pulls them out of the ditch.  The driver refused to take any money.  They get in town and find that there was no such towing company anywhere in the city that showed on the side of the truck.  How would you explain it?  There are many stories that I have heard that cannot be explained.  Do you believe in angels that can be seen and can talk?  Have you talked to an angel?

    I was extremely worried about finances and an angel spoke to me late at night while I was in my bed. The angel said “God will take care of you”…The next morning, When I logged on to my email, I have an email from a huge company requesting my help on a project. I own a real estate company. I had barely gotten by all year and was struggling. I ended up the year with a paycheck of 350,000
    NEVER in my wildest dreams could I imagined something like this happening to me.There have been a few more instances where God has spoken to me.I have so much faith because if this and I only wish more people could receive that kind of blessing.
