Are Angels Real or Are They Just a Creation of Fertile Human Minds?

Are Angels Real? An Introduction

A poll conducted on Dec 8-12, 2011 showed that 8 in10 Americans believed in the existence of angels. With such widespread belief in these holy beings, it causes one to ponder whether angels are real or if they are just the fruits of fertile human minds. Not being religious, I tend to be on the fence concerning anything religious, however, I shall continue to gather information and knowledge before I contemplate whether religion is based on fact or fiction. Religion still harbors many wonderful stories and mysteries that are worth exploring though.

Whether angels are real or not, it is difficult for me personally to sit here and say we are completely alone in this existence.

Perhaps I yearn for such things OR perhaps angels ARE real as well as all the other wondrous beings. Let's discover....


Are Angels Real? Why the Widespread Belief in Them?

If we are to believe in the scriptures of the bible, angels are here to serve us and will do our bidding should we ask of them.


"He will give his angels charge of youto guard you in all your ways.On their hands they will bear you up,lest you dash your foot against a stone." - BIBLE, Psalms 91: 11-12


"For God commands the angels to guard you in all your ways.
With their hands they shall support you,
lest you strike your foot against a stone."
Psalms 91:11-12


Belief - We Must Believe in Them

So how is it that we command these heavenly beings to do our bidding? The general consensus is that in order for us to successfully command an angel to do our bidding, we must first believe in angels, for if we do not believe in them they are eternally bound and unable to assist us. Unless you are religious then, it requires a leap of faith in order to open the heavenly door to the helpful power of your guardian angel.

Perhaps an experience of being saved by an angel could encourage this belief and therefore a unity with one's own guardian Angel?

Let's take a look at some of the stories told by those 'saved' by their guardian angel.

Angels Are Real According to This Girl's Mother

Are Angels Real? - These Stories Would Suggest So

The Angel on the Security Monitor

In December 2008, no-one expected 14 year old Chelsea Banton, a disabled girl suffering from pneumonia to survive. Having turned off the life-support machine, Coleen Banton, the girl's mother was waiting for Chelsea to draw her last breath when something incredible happened.

A Bright Light

A bright shaft of light appeared on the security monitor in Chelsea's room and within 10 minutes of appearing, the teenager underwent a rapid recovery. In two months the girl was back at home and living a normal life. The apparition was also seen by hospital staff in the vicinity and they echoed the thoughts of everybody else. An Angel had come to save Chelsea.

“I think angels really do exist,” the Rev. Suzan Johnson Cook told TODAY’s Ann Curry after watching the report on the Bantons’ experience. “They protect us. They walk amongst us.”

Angels Are Real

A Woman And Her Baby Saved by An Angel?

In 1998 a woman and her baby were mysteriously saved from being crushed by what she says felt like a 'soft,warm blanket' lifting a heavy shelf from her and her baby. A car crashed into the skateboard store they were inside and she was struck by the shelf in the face. Despite the heavy wooden shelf falling on her and her child, they were completely unharmed and were able to escape when the shelf shifted somehow.

Her husband, thinking his wife and child were seriously hurt after witnessing the shelf falling on them was completely relieved but amazed to see they were unharmed.

A couple of hours after the incident a friend of theirs sent a mysterious text. Mysterious because he had no idea what had happened to them.

Psalm 34:7 The angel of the LORD encampeth round about them that fear him, and delivereth them.

Are Angels real? Are they protecting those who believe in them?

Are those halos actually breathing apparatus of some kind?

Are Angels Real? - The Final Word

Food For Thought

With instances such as the above stories and the many other stories just like them, it seems as if there is 'something' out there protecting us in times of danger. However, if we don't believe in Angels or search for them, does that mean that when we are faced with danger we will not receive their aid?


Are Angels Aliens?

In the picture above and in many other pictures like it, the angels appear to have a halo of light around their heads but what if that circular shape around their head isn't a light? What if it is a breathing apparatus of some kind?

Just an idea. What do you think about angels? Are angels real? Do they walk among us here on Earth or are they just a myth, a legend?


Are not all angels ministering spirits sent to serve those who will inherit salvation?

BIBLE, Hebrews 1:14

Angels are real aren't they?

Hi Richie,

The devil (El diablo) is supposed to be a fallen angel, fallen from grace for having disobeyed GOD. There was a long period of time in my life when I had my doubts about the existence of the devil, but over the last couple of decades, the antics of a certain musician, merciless acts by terrorists, criminals, and "evolution" of attitudes in society has led me to doubt my doubt.

So that's the way I look at it.

Cheers, :)

Hey quicksand.

Good answer! Yes I had heard that before and perhaps in a sense it is true if not utterly true. Perhaps we'll never know for sure.

I'm with you on your stance on the devil. I believe that the incredibly common acts of pain and suffering we inflict upon each other constantly give cause to believe in something like the devil.

I KNOW there is more to life than just science and scientific explanation, I'm just not sure what.

Thanks for reading. Peace.

Excellent hub. I know there are angels, and they are warriors, not these wimpy little things you see on tv and commercials, as they are fighting over us daily in the unseen realm. In His Love, Faith Reaper

Thank you Faith Reaper for taking the time to comment here.

Your faith is strong and that is encouraging to me and I'm sure to many.

I'm open to all possibilities because that is what makes being alive so wonderful, so much of life is all about imagination. Nothing is concrete.

Science alone can't explain why we are here.

Thanks for commenting. See you soon.

Peace.

I'm glad you have faith in Angels. I would like to believe in them but for now I'll just say that there is more to life than meets the eye!

Peace and have a good day. :)

Richawriter, your Hub gave me chills. I believe in angels. I typed a poem about my deceased father years ago. Years after I'd written it, I was consolidating files from that old computer to save on a new one and ran across the poem. An entire paragraph had been added talking about how he was now looking over me and I had an angel. No one else had access to that computer. It remains a total mystery to me to this day.

Wow, what an experience that must have been. Those hairs on the back of your neck must have been standing to attention at such a finding! I know mine would have been.

It's experiences like that which cause us to re-evaluate our belief system and I feel you, because I too have had several experiences which were mind-bogglingly synchronistic or just plain impossible.

Fascinating, indeed!

Perhaps your old man is with you. Perhaps all our loved ones are with us, whether alive or in heaven. There is surely more to life...

Thank you. A wonderful comment!

Peace.

I believe that angels are real. And when we lose a loved one, they're our guardian angels. They're everywhere and watching us, guiding us and protecting us. They're there for us, whenever we need them.
