If you want to see and recognize angels, you’ve got to have faith. Faith is the number one prerequisite for seeing angels. It’s the key that unlocks the door to consciously witnessing angelic manifestations. The Bible talks about faith being ” … the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen. … ” (Hebrews 11:1, KJV)
There are numerous, biblical examples that pertain to angels appearing on earth (for a detailed account, see my book, Lessons from my Guardian Angel). One of my favorite examples is when Father Abraham entertains angels in disguise. (Genesis 18:1) He didn’t know that angels would come calling, but he never stopped moving once they arrived. He served them nonstop, giving them the best he had, even though they were strangers disguised as Arabs, people he’d presumably never seen before in his life. Legend has it that these three “men” were none other than the Archangels Michael, Gabriel and Raphael.
When angels come calling, they come in disguise or, incognito. That’s because angels, 100% made of light, appear so bright in their true form that it would overwhelm—possibly kill—us if we were to see them in their true form. That’s why they appear disguised. Angels can do this because they live in the fourth dimension, one step up from our third dimension world. In the fourth dimension, things like war, hate, crime, lies, and disease do not exist. In the fourth dimension, communication happens on a higher level than on earth. Angels communicate telepathically and speech is only used for creative functions like singing. In order to understand the fourth dimension, we need to perform a radical shift in our thinking.
They say that there are millions of angels who worship God on the Mount of the Congregation, positioned in front of his temple in heaven. Angels, however, are not static beings who hang out on clouds twiddling their thumbs. Angels are active beings who move back and forth between higher dimensional space and our third dimension world. As God’s representatives, they have wards and perform missions that God assigns them. Haven’t you heard the testimonials, too numerous to count, where people claim that an angel or angels in disguise rescued them from certain tragedy?
Billy Graham calls angels “God’s secret agents.” I believe that he coined this term because of the mysterious aspect connected with the way angels appear on earth. They must appear disguised in order to be able to complete their heavenly assignments. As we go through our daily lives, we need to be ever ready for the unexpected, the unexpected being the way in which God moves in our lives. It rarely happens the way we think or believe. It’s most often original, amazing and breathtaking.
God bless and may you see angels,
