Now I fully believed that we have angels working with us.  I had just never seen one with wings on the earth, until that day…

I went to work in the small little town of Greenville, North Carolina. I worked at a place called S. and S. Cafeteria and it was located in the towns only mall. I drove the ten or fifteen miles to work with the radio on trying to get ready for another mundane day. I arrived on time and began walking down the hallway towards the time clock to punch in.

Out of the blue, for a moment,  my eyes were opened to the unseen realm.  The spirit realm. Lo and behold right before my eyes, standing beside the time clock, was a beautiful giant angel.  He was tall, maybe ten feet or more, and glistened like gold.  He had wings that reached to the ceiling and was so majestic looking.  It was not a frightening experience, but it startled me because it was so unexpected. Then quickly, the vision closed, but I knew he was still there. I was aware of what the Bible teaches about the gifts of the Holy Spirit located in chapter 12 of the book of 1 Corinthians. That at times when the Holy Spirit desires to, He can open your eyes so that you can see what is in the spirit realm, it’s called “discerning of spirits”, and that is what I had experienced.

All day long I wondered what the Angel was there for.  Was he there to prevent an accident?  A robbery?  My mind danced around like crazy with curiosity!  Finally, I took my lunch break and sat down at the table with my Bible.  As I was eating and reading, a young man came and sat down abruptly across from me and looked me square in the eye.  He said, “I heard you were a Christian”  I said, “Yes I am.”

He excitedly said, “What must I do to get saved?”   Well, here it was!  I knew the Angel was there to see to it that this event took place.  There is no greater miracle than the new birth, to become what the Bible calls “born again”. When someone accepts Christ and has their name written in the Book of Life. After showing him some scripture and briefly explaining salvation, I prayed with the young man at the table to receive Jesus as his Lord.   I also asked him to meet me after work to talk about the baptism in the Holy Spirit which he was excited to do! I figured he needed the whole package!

The young man did meet me in the parking lot after work and received the baptism.  It was incredible. I felt like I was living in the Book of Acts! The Holy Spirit descended on him and he was filled with God’s presence and spoke in tongues right there in the parking lot! Never think God is limited to a church for a holy experience to take place! The whole earth is filled with His glory!

I knew that this had been a divine appointment. A special one because God allowed me to see the presence of the Angel, although they are surrounding us in the spirit realm all the time, especially if we are believers. This man’s life was now transformed.  I don’t remember his name, but I saw him a year or so later and he said he was going to Bible school to be a minister. He wanted to be a Pastor.  I knew God was taking good care of him and it was a blessing to have been allowed to take part in his journey.
How cool to think of the angels involvement in our lives.  All going on around us in the unseen realm! They are around you too! The more we pray and walk in faith….the more they are activated around us!

Hebrews 13:2 “Do not forget to entertain strangers, for by so doing some have unwittingly entertained angels.”

1 Corinthians 12:7-11 “ But the manifestation of the Spirit is given to each one for the profit of all:  for to one is given the word of wisdom through the Spirit, to another the word of knowledge through the same Spirit,  to another faith by the same Spirit, to another gifts of healings by the same Spirit,  to another the working of miracles, to another prophecy, to another discerning of spirits, to another different kinds of tongues, to another the interpretation of tongues.  But one and the same Spirit works all these things, distributing to each one individually as He wills.”
