Guardian Angels, Part 2
In the second part of two articles on guardian angels, our angel expert answers questions on seeing divine protectors and warrior angels living among us.
- Are there guardian angels protecting my mother-in-law?
- Who was the little girl who appeared by my husband's bedside?
- Are there incarnated warrior angels that live among us?

They have exchanged handshakes, as if to seal an agreement, they bend their knees in worship, and they appear to be instructing her through hand gestures and by pointing to heaven. One time, I saw the smaller angel of the two angels reading a newspaper. Am I off-base or is this a real response to a real request I made?
I have never asked for a vision to see them; I only asked that they be sent. On a recent visit to her house, I took a picture of the area on her roof where these two angels stay. I could not find a sign of them on film, but I know they are there. My son visited her house too and sensed a Godly presence in a few areas of her home; one of the spots was directly under the rooftop area where I see the angels. I want to comfort my mother-in-law with this, but I want Godly biblical direction. I believe this angelic testimony will speak to her, but I don't want it to be flesh-driven.
Please shed some light on this for me.
You are to be commended for wanting to share your faith in a positive way with your mother-in-law. You requested a Godly biblical foundation about angels to share with your mother-in-law. In Acts 8:26-40,God used an angel to bring a person to faith is An angel told Philip to go south to the road that went down from Jerusalem to Gaza. There Philip met an Ethiopian eunuch. When Philip shared his faith, this important official believed and was baptized.
Notice the Biblical principles that are found here and throughout the Bible. There are many things that only an angel can do, but there are others that people can do. In Acts 8, God did not use an angel to witness to the Ethiopian; God sent a human instead. In the Bible, it seems that God’s first choice is to use a person to do his will. He uses an angel when it becomes necessary a human is not willing to carry out God’s plan.
The reason you feel concern for your mother-in-law is because God has placed that concern in your heart. He is waiting, urging you, to share your faith with her. You have waited a couple of years for angels to do what God wants you to do. Don’t tell your mother-in-law about angels. Tell her about God’s love for her.
Last night, my husband woke from a dream at 11:00 p.m. and was fully awake when he saw what he describes as a little girl standing at the side of our bed with her arms resting on the bed (at first, he thought it was our 11 year old daughter). He kept staring at her, and then she just vanished into thin air. He is certain of what he saw and knows he was awake and not dreaming.
