Who are these Angels? Angels are part of the Creation, they are pure divine beings of light; Angels are as timeless as the origins of mankind. The name Angel, comes from the Latin word Angelus, which means “messenger.”
Jewish and Christian Scholars believe that Angels came into being during Creation. Angels are messengers of God, delegates or ambassadors of God. They are ministering in the relationship between God and humanity. Angels have been appearing for many centuries in the arts, in beautiful paintings and sculptures since the early fifth century.
They were depicted with wings and dazzling white bodies. It was believed that their wings were the angels ability to travel swiftly between Heaven and Earth and their white light suggested their celestial origins.
According to writings from Jayne H. Feldman, author of Commune with the Angels - We are in the midst of many changes taking place on the earth. Many people believe that this is not just another moment in history but a cosmic moment that involves not only the human kingdom but Gods entire kingdom. The Angels have been in closer contact to earth than ever before, and the truth is that we need the help and it is being provided to us by God through a generous influx of Angels.
Theologian Dionysius, the Areopagite, in the 6th century, a contemporary of St. Paul, referred to the Nine Choirs or Heavenly orders of Angels and wrote about the Angel hierarchies; the Angelic Realm was then later adapted by the theologian and philosopher St. Thomas Aquinas in the 13th century. All these Angel orders can be found in scriptures under Colossians, where Paul makes reference: And by God all things were created, that are in heaven and that are in earth, visible and invisible, whether they be thrones or dominions or principalities or powers; all things were created by God.
The Nine Choir of Angels bring the mystical fulfillment of the Angelic kingdom, ‘as in Heaven, so in Earth.’ Each of the choirs have their key words or divine specialties. The Seraphim, Cherubim and Thrones are closest to the throne of God; they are of the purest “burning” love and light of the Divine. The Dominions, Virtues and Powers, administrate God’s will, and are protectors, who bring balance and divine power, what we call miracles. The Archangels and Angels are the most well known and closest to mankind. Archangels are powerful healers and Angels are committed to lovingly guide and guard us.
Swedish mystic, philosopher, and spiritual writer Emanuel Swedenborg – 1688-1772 described: “I am well aware that many will say that no one can possibly speak with the spirits and angels so long as he is living in the body, but I am deterred by none of these; for I have seen, I have heard, and I have felt.”
Many people have said that getting to know and believing in Angels has made their life more enjoyable, they feel peaceful and confident, and have less fear of death and of the future. Connecting with your Angels is very easy. The first thing you need to know is that they love you and want to support you in every way. Just remember to ask for what is it you want. We have our own free will – we make our life choices, and have our own beliefs. Whether you are a believer or non-believer, that does not matter, because Angels believe in you. Angels see your inner light, the divinity within you.
The Angels will not interfere with our free will, we need to ask them. Ask, meditate, pray, be grateful, and know that your Angels are at your side every moment of the way. Sometimes we do not see the results we would like, but see that in every step we take, even though we cannot comprehend, our Angels are always looking out for our highest good. We can call on Angels whenever we wish, they are awaiting to answer your call, and are available 24 hours a day, weekends, and Holidays too!
