Pursuing the abundance of a closer walk with Christ


ArcangelGabrielAngels. Have you ever entertained them unawares? What do I mean, entertain? And unawares ? I know I’d want to be aware of an angel, wouldn’t you?

Years ago, there was a popular TV program called, “Touched by an Angel”. The angels in this series intervened in the lives of people who would be featured in the weekly episode. They were entertaining angels literally. However, the Bible suggests we do the entertaining, not angels entertain us.

I read different versions of the following verse and have seleted the following: Hebrews 13:2 KJV “Be not forgetful to entertain strangers: for thereby some have entertained angels unaware.” And the New International Version, “Do not forget to show hospitality to strangers, for by so doing, some have shown hospitality to angels without knowing it.”

I recently traveled out of state and visited a small local church while there. The hospitality shown to my family and I was wonderful. I asked the superintendent if there was any particular place we were to sit and he replied, “You may sit wherever you like, but angels may brush up against you.” I chuckled at what I thought was a joke and had a passing thought that I might sit down on an angel unawares. However, as the congregation stood to sing, I felt someone brush my left shoulder and back. I looked over beside and behind me, but no one was sitting in the pew behind us and my daughter sat far enough from me that there was space for another person to sit in between us.

Then, the light went on in my head. I turned around and leaned over close to where the superintendent was sitting two pews behind and said, “Were you just joking about an angel brushing up against us?” “No, Ma’am. We are to remember to entertain strangers because they may be angels. There might be an angel up there in front of you and you’d not know it.”

I smiled and said, “An angel just brushed his wing up against me.” He gave glory to God and I joined in the praise, too.

May God bless your week and let me know if you’ve been brushed by an angel.

  1. How exciting!! Some years back I saw someone standing at the foot of my bed while I slept. At the time I didn’t think much about it except it is kind of weird that I woke up, saw the figure standing there and really didn’t think much about it. Actually the next day I thought that it might be my dad who had passed away some years before. I know quite a bit more now that I did in those days and in a prophecy class that I am taking, we discussed angel visitation and I now believe that that is who was standing at the foot of my bed….kinda hoping he revisits so I can ask what he wants!!

    • How wonderful. Do you remember when that occurred? Was there a special occasion or something going on in your life for the angel to appear?

  2. Dearest Virginia, so happy you have “entertained the angels” and that they have “brushed up against you”; but you know my friend, the angels have always been there by your side, patiently waiting for you to emerge again like a spring flower. So happy to read this, God is good, patient, and kind…. Thinking of you often,
    Ness

    • Many times I’m unaware of their presence and I think it’s that way for most people. It is incredible when we are aware and how God sends them at special times of comfort, protection, healing or as escorts home.
