Part of the emerging spirituality is the role of angels and their functions
in daily life. Are angels a figment of the imagination or are they beings,
since the start of creation, that bear messages to individuals and humanity
on whole? The recent resurgence in the popularity of angels indicates a
search for spirituality and help in a troubled world.
The function of Angels is to provide us with our spiritual and emotional needs.
Angels provide various functions in day to day life. Their main role is to
be guardians and messengers. Other services they offer range from helping
people make decisions, to more serious roles like saving lives. Angels are
there to help steer individuals through the difficulties they encounter by
providing insight, awareness, support and encouragement in every situation
that is faced throughout a humans entire lifetime.
With there being so many angels, some go by other titles. Archangels,
cherubims and seraphims are angels that perform specific tasks. Gabriel, who
announced to Mary that she would give birth to Jesus Christ and Michael who
fought Satan and threw him out of Heaven are the only angels known by name.
In Genesis, cherubim were placed by God at the east end of the Garden of
Eden just after Adam and Eve were evicted. In Exodus 25, images of cherubim
were to be placed on the Ark of the Covenant as instructed by God to Moses.
In Isaiah 6:2 seraphim are described as having six wings. Two covered the
face of them, two covered the feet and two were used to fly with. In this
passage, the seraphim stood by the Throne of God and sang His praises.
Angels are not to be confused with Spirit Guides. Despite a slight
connection, they are two completely different entities. Spirit Guides can be
deceased friends or family members who stick around and provide guidance
throughout a persons life. Angels have been with a person since their birth
and stay until that individual dies. Angels have more wisdom and enlightment
than Spirit Guides, therefore in a better position to help people. Guardian
Angels are those who need to be formally sanctioned by God and other angels
to do that particular role.
