- Why didn't my dream about angels change my life?
- How are angels different from God?
- Do angels speak their own language?
- Is the 'white horse' mentioned in Revelation an angel?
Since then, nothing has changed. What happened to my angels? Where have they gone? I need two miracles, one for health and one for finances.

What an interesting dream! What a wonderful experience to have heard the angels singing music more beautiful than earthly music. I have never had that experience myself, but others have told me about it. Probably, I will have to wait to hear the heavenly harmonies when I am in heaven What happened to your angels? Where have they gone? They are still with you, night and day. Many people believe that if they have an experience with God or his angels, it must mean that their problems will be miraculously solved and that they will discover God’s great new purpose for their life. Sometimes that is true, but often God meets us during a time of need to make us aware of his continuing love and to give us encouragement in our daily struggles.
In your case, while it is true that God is able to solve your health and financial problems with miracles, it is likely that this may be a time he is counting on you to “continue to work out your salvation with fear and trembling, for it is God who works in you to will and to act according to his purposes.” (Philippians 2:12-13)
For your health, eat correctly, exercise, get enough sleep, and follow the advice of a good doctor, and always pray for God to help with your healing. For your finances, ask God’s help to make a budget andfollow it. Limit your spending, and add to your income. You may need a counselor to help consolidate your debts and negotiate a payment plan you can handle.
I believe God’s angels appeared in a dream to assure you that God knows and cares about your problems, and he wants to help you meet your needs.
Angels are a wonderful supernatural creation of God, but it is important that we do not confuse their traits and abilities with God’s abilities. Here are a few of the differences between God and his angels:
but limited in what they can do
but do not know everything
In the Bible, it seems that angels can speak any human language fluently. Here are some examples where angels spoke in the language that people understood:
• Egyptian spoken to Hagar (Genesis 16)
• Hebrew spoken to Gideon (Judges 6)
• Aramaic spoken to the Virgin Mary (Luke 1)
• Greek spoken to Cornelius (Acts 10)
Angels can also communicate with or without words. An example of this is the story told above where an angel brought a clear message, without speaking a word, to Hope and Harry. 1 Corinthians 13:1 may also refer to the fact that angels have a language they speak among themselves.
Revelations 20:3 tells of a rider on a white horse. Is this a symbol for Christ or for another angel?
The rider on a white horse is not found in Revelation 20:3. The rider is found in Revelation 19:11-16. The context here refers to Christ returning as a Warrior-Messiah-King.
