Part 4: Testimony of angelic intervention

(This is part 4 of 9 parts in this class)


I'll never forget when I was living in Holland and went to pick up our mail from our ministry post box. I opened it immediately and began reading one of the letters as I walked towards home. As I walked down a quiet street I was totally absorbed in its contents. So absorbed, that I reached the street's end without even realising it and stepped out into the busy main road - right in front of a bus!

What then occurred was awesome! Seemingly of themselves my feet came together and I rebounded backwards off the road onto the pavement. I had the distinct sensation of being picked up under the arms. The bus screeched to a halt some distance farther on and there I was standing in safety!

I am convinced an angel or angels had intervened! The angels God the Father had assigned to take charge over me had faithfully carried out another mission of protection. The Epistle to the Hebrews tells us that angels are ministering spirits sent to minister for the "heirs of salvation" (KJV).


Who are the heirs of salvation? We are! God's children, His new creations by the new birth are the heirs of salvation.

Angels are ministering spirits. They minister for the sons and daughters of God. They minister to the needs of God's children. They minister wonderfully in protecting and helping them.

Are not the angels all ministering spirits (servants) sent out in the service (of God for the assistance) of those who are to inherit salvation?

Hebrews 1:14 - Amplified Bible


In Psalm 91 we hear God's promise,

It was this promise of God that impelled my assigned angels to pluck me up from before the oncoming bus!

In their hands they (the angels) shall bear you (those who dwell in the secret place of the Most High) up in their hands, lest you dash your foot against a stone.

Psalm 91:12 - NKJV(words in brackets added for clarity)
