PostSubject: ANGELS IN OTHER BELIEFS   Fri Dec 21, 2012 5:30 am

Angels are perfect spiritual beings, whose purpose it is to minister, help, protect and sustain everything in the universe.

Everything, even a humble rock….or a cooling breeze….has an angelic intelligence behind it to ensure that the Gods/ Goddesses will is carried out.

In the Christian tradition, angels are considered sexless….In the Jewish tradition they are seen as masculine….however most beliefs recognise the fact that angels…..be it in many different forms or names do exist.

Jehovah's Witnesses have concluded that Michael and Jesus are one and the same.

The Protestant Bible provides names for two angels: Archangel Michael and the Archangel Gabriel

The Church of Jesus Christ of latter day saints interpret the term archangel as 'Chief Angel' and so believe that there is only one archangel which is Michael. It is believed that he is the head of all of the angels, though there are many other important angels such as Gabriel, Raphael, etc.

In Roman Catholicism, three are honoured by name: Michael, Gabriel, Raphael
So there are many, many differing beliefs about our celestial friends

What about Angels in a Wiccan belief some do, some don't, and some have no opinion. Angels as such don't really figure into these spiritual paths, but other angel-like beings (such as devas and fairies) make frequent appearances.

Angels as we know them came into human thought long before Judaism or Christianity mentioned them. These somewhat freeform spiritual entities gradually evolved into what we know as angels.

There is a tradition called Angel Wicca in which the standard Western angels are invoked and entreated as functionaries between humanity and the greater spirit world.

There will be others who will not like the idea of angels, and still others that think angels belong only in strict Christian interpretation.

Angels exist solely to help us…..Consequently throughout the ages countless number of people have called on them in times of need.

This aid is always given freely, as well as this, we have access to angelic love, power and support every day.
Please do not make believing in Angels hard for you, if you have thought of an angel presence then take that thought and nurture it, trust that thought and most of all send love to that ‘Thought’


Please grant me serenity to accept things I cannot change, courage to change the things I can and wisdom to know the difference.
