Hi guys how is everyone? I am well, tired with no relief in sight, lol! But I have left you all behind enough and the Lord has given me a boost today so I wanted to write a little more about this fascinating subject of angels.

So our question this week is do angels have supernatural powers like the way the Lord has given me a little extra strength today. 

Scripture tells us in many different places of how powerful angels are. The following are only a few examples. Second Kings 19:35, 1 Chronicles 21:12, 1 Chronicles 21:15, and Isaiah 37:36 all describe cities that have been destroyed by angels carrying out the command of God. And Acts 12:23 tells us of angels that smote people. Second Chronicles 32:21 talks of angles that cut off men in battle, and Psalm 34:7 relates how angels encamp around the enemies of God. They are strong (Rev 5:2), can wrestle with men (Hosea 12:4), carry swords (Num 22:31, 1Cro 21:16, 27 and 30),
prophecies (Luke 1:13, Judges 13:3), shut the mouths of lions (Dan 6:22), walk over all the earth (Zec 1:1), and sever the wicked from the just (Math 13:49). They can come upon people and shine with God’s glory (Luke 2:19 and 13, Acts 12:7), can ascend in flames (Judges 13:20) and even open the eyes of men to the spiritual world (Num 22:31) and cause earthquakes (Math 28:2). And 2 Peter 2:11 out right tells us angels have great power and Psalm 103:20 states angels excel in strength! Furthermore they have the ability to travel at incredible speeds (Dan 9:21) and are present at every believers earthly death to deliver them into the presence of the Lord (Luke 16:22, 2 Corth 5:8).

Wow! That’s a lot! Do we ever see this kind of angelic strength displayed today? Well, just ask those who have been in auto accidents where angels have intervened. For example in Crawford Texas on a rainy day, a woman driving a SUV lost control and it hit an oncoming car and both rolled multiple times landing upside down. Two people stopped when they saw the accident and know they had to get the drivers out quickly as flames began to mount. The male bystander gave a knife to the woman trapped in her car and she cut through her seat belt landing on the roof. He wiggled back out of the crushed car and then reached in and grabbed the woman’s hands to pull her out. But he stopped because there was only an eight inch opening and the woman’s weight prevented her from fitting through. The woman bystander prayed for angles to help and suddenly another set of white glowing hands appeared over the man’s hands gripping both the rescuer and the victim. The next thing anybody knew, the woman and her
rescuer where outside the car on the grass next to the praying woman. The two rescuers then went to the other car and saw there was no way to get the man out. Then suddenly the man, who had been strapped in his seatbelt hanging upside down emerged from the vehicle surrounded by a bright white light in the shape of two hands and floated to the ground away from the car. When professional help arrived they put out the fire and tended to the two victims. The female rescuer turned around and saw a huge rainbow over the accident scene. 

Interestingly enough Psalm 91:9-12 says “For He shall give His angels charge over you, To keep you in all your ways. In their hands they shall bear you up, Lest you dash your foot against a stone.”  

Another incident happened to Bruce Barado also involved a vehicle. This time it was a massive 18 wheel Peter-built truck. Bruce is a truck mechanic and was just finishing up his day when a co-worker asked him to check out one more truck. Bruce went under the truck’s front end feet first. When he was half way under the vehicle, the stand supporting the 10,000 pound truck gave way and came down on Bruce’s middle. Bruce was conscious and in excruciating pain but managed to look at his body. He could see
that he was basically cut in half, the truck axle resting on his lower ribs crushing his body to less than one inch thick. He lost consciousness and had an out-of-body experience where he floated above the scene. He could see his coworker sitting by his head and
two angels on either side of them reaching under the truck, but not holding it. Then he heard a quite voice saying if he wanted to live, he would have to fight. Instantly he came back to his body but felt no pain. Emergency medical personal came and a helicopter flew him to the nearest trauma hospital. There they found out he had crushed 5 major arteries, a crush spleen, pancreas and small intestines. Nobody though he would make it and were surprised that he hadn’t already bled to death from the severed arteries. His wife and family and church family all prayed and after many months and many surgeries, he was completely healed. But many of the healing could not be explained. Most people have up to 20 feet of small intestine. Bruce’s small intestines were reduced to 3 feet. But a virtual stranger came in and prayed for him and his intestines grew to 9 feet, enough to allow absorbing of food so he wouldn’t starve. Many other miracles took place that doctors couldn’t explain including growing a new spleen and pancreas. But to Bruce the most miraculous part were the angels kneeling over him. Bruce believes these supernatural beings were keeping the 5 severed arteries from bleeding out.  

These are just two examples of many, many angel encounters in today’s world. Yes, angels are powerful and “are intensely interested in all of God’s plans and in our own individual roles in those plans—“which things the angels desire to look into” (I Peter 1:12). They (also) serve as guardian angels (Psalm 34:7; 91:11)…”1

Perhaps it would be good to remember in our prayers to thank God for His angels who have charge over us.

Until next time, God bless and take care,

  1. Supernatural is not our God/Creator of the heavens and the earth!
    Leviticus 19:31
    Regard not them that have familiar spirits, neither seek after wizards, to be defiled by them: I am the LORD your God.
