Have you ever lived through something that should have killed you? Have you just missed being in a wreck? Was there ever a time in your life when someone helped you but when you went back after the fact to thank them were unable to find said person? If you answered yes to any of these questions, your life might have been spared by an angel.
Angels are of course messengers of God. They can also serve in a protective manner, coming in between danger and God’s children. They are spoken about in various locations throughout the Bible including Psalm 91:11, which says, “For he will command His angels concerning you to guard you in all your ways..”. Many people, even today, claim their lives have been protected, spared or forever altered by an angel. The compilation below include six true stories of real life people who were protected by angels.
As mentioned above, this video features six real life testimonies of angel encounters. One happened in Chicago, Illinois in 1977. This incident took place when a man and woman were driving their car around 11:00 in the morning. They were traveling down a busy Chicago highway, when their car unexpectedly died, right in the middle of the road. The man frantically tried to restart the car, with no luck. They were understandably scared they were going to get hit by another car as they were still in the roadway, with vehicles speeding by right and left. Suddenly, the man looked back and saw a black pickup truck that was positioned at a T, close to their back bumper. It was almost as it was positioned to protect the man and woman’s car from the other traffic. After the man and woman got their car started, they looked back to thank the man in the truck for his kindness and the truck had vanished.
Watch the video for more unexplained stories that many believe were encounters with angels.
