Do Angels Ever Help
If you have doubts that an angel is by your side, read how angels do help those who deserve it.
- Where were my guardian angels?
- Have I met a real, fallen angel?
- Are angels ever jealous of humans?
- Will medallions bring me closer to angels?
- Is there really an army of angels in heaven?
Some enquiring minds want to know, “Where were my guardian angels? Why does God allow bad things to happen to good people?” Many people are frustrated because they spend their time agonizing over these difficult questions while ignoring the equally important questions, “Why do good things happen to good people? And how do the angels help?”
In the book “Why Good Things Happen to Good People
,” by Dr. Stephen Post and Jill Neimark, there is surprising evidence that a number of good things do happen to good people. A person doesn’t have to be a complete paragon of virtue to be the recipient of these good things.
“Good people” is the popular term Post and Neimark use in place of the technical and scientific term other studies describe as “generous givers.” Good people are those who:
- help others grow
- have courage
- use humor with its healing power, connecting with joy
- respect others by offering tolerance, civility, acceptance, and even reverence
- respond with compassion by feeling for others
- are loyal
- listen offering a deep presence, which is the gift of caring
- are creative, spontaneous, and joyful in the expression of life
Those who give unselfishly also make themselves more open to receive the grace and favor of God. They experience the truth of Romans 8:28: “God works all things together for good for those who love God.”
God uses his angels to work things together. We are most aware of this when an angel takes a form that can be seen by humans. Other times the intervention may be by “angels unaware,” or angels who appear as humans. More often, God’s angels are unseen as they work, influencing people and situations in ways that often go unnoticed. At other times they become apparent, sometimes in surprising ways, causing us to wonder, “Why did that good thing happen?”
Someone I recently met professes to be a "clipped" or "fallen" angel. He said he did something he wasn't supposed to do , but is now here trying to make amends and regain his wings.Can this be true? I have an open mind to many things and I am a firm believer in God, angels, miracles, the whole nine yards. I believe God puts people in our lives at just the right time for many reasons. I try to learn lessons from everyone in my life, and I try not to turn people away. I’m just not sure what to do in this circumstance.
According to the Bible, the fall of angels happened only once in the past. The fallen angels are under the judgment of God. There never has been a “clipped” or “fallen” angel who comes to earth to make amends and regain his wings. After the fall, the holy angels have become confirmed in holiness and do not sin. There are no lessons for you to learn from this person.
