Do You Believe In Angels?

Back when I was a kid in my 20’s I was living in a tropical clime while gainfully employed by the US Army. And this is a true story.

My section was concerned because the Air Force was sling-loading old abandoned cars from the base and trying to drop them in a place that had a steep rolling front slope and was covered in elephant grass. That was our impact area; the place where we were dropping artillery. Too many of those cars just hit the ground and bounced down the slope into the tall grass where we couldn’t see them. Every now and again, one car would hit other old targets and stay in place. But most were lost in the tall grass.

Hmmm. Maybe we could get a better view of the target area from the adjacent hill?

Our Fearless Leader, a young Lt., decided that we should leave the comfort of our 980 meter hill with a nice road leading up to the top, for the adjacent hill, which had only a small trail leading up to it.

In spots, the trail was wide enough for a man to put down both feet, then narrowed to a trail that you had to hug the hillside that ran along the trail, while shuffling along and trying not to look down at the 300 foot drop below, Part of the trail had washed away and you had to jump across the gap to get to the other side.

Everybody made it. The hill wasn’t anywhere near what the map showed. The top of the hill was covered by jungle vegetation and appeared to be shorn off. The map was 400 meters off.

Oh well, we found a rocky slippery place to squat down on. There was just enough of a clear view that we could see through, to drop a few artillery rounds. But the overall view was worse than the hill that we left.

At this point, we decided that we were wasting our time. Problem: In order to get down off the hill in one piece, we had to sit down, push with our legs and shift our weight at the last minute to avoid sliding off a 600 ft cliff.

You couldn’t walk down to the trail standing up. It was too slippery.

The trail was off to the left. Miss it, and its certain death.

Since I was the senior enlisted. I got to go first. Ever since I became born-again lets just say that I wasn’t exactly Mr. Popular. No biggie. The Lord was with me all the time, Daily, I could feel His powerful presence no matter where I went.

So I began my slide. Sitting on my rear end, and using my feet to start my slide, and gravity to propel me forward, I slid pretty fast towards the left-hand turn down onto the main part of the trail.

I had my M-16 strapped under my arms and my sling-keeper locked. As I shifted my weight to make the turn, my sling-keeper popped loose.

Oh man, I can hear the M-16 hit the ground, and I’m thinking while I’m sliding, that it is going to slide down the cliff into the thick jungle below and we’re going to spend the rest of the day looking for it…or maybe I’ll get an Article 15 for loosing my weapon.

Nope. Didn’t happen. Gravity should have taken over and the weapon should have slid straight down off the cliff. Instead, the butt of the weapon struck the ground, bounced up in the air, was caught by unseen hands, shifted left, and was dropped gently into my lap, as I was making my turn.

All I could hear from the guys behind me was “Did you see that?” “I don’t believe what I just saw.” Over and over again everyone of my compadres was questioning what they just witnessed.

When we got back, I asked everyone what they saw, and no one would comment. All the Lt. would say was: “I don’t know about you… But someone (looking up at the sky) is looking out for you”.

That incident wasn’t for my benefit. I read the account of Doubting Thomas. Blessed is he who believes that doesn’t have to see. My fellow team members have no reason to not believe. They got to see the power of the noble “I Am” with their own eyes.

God is. And is a rewarder of those who seek diligently after Him. Period.

    For me, God is. Angels? Don’t know.

    • Is_Sense_Common

      The Bible tells us about angels in many many places. Goto and type in “angel” to find a whole host of passages referring to His angels. If you believe God, you can believe His word is true.

    • RighteousCrow_JustCaws

      Just watch “It’s A Wonderful Life” with Jimmy Stewart.

  • That made me smile 911Infidel.
    Yes, I believe in angels and demons. Had experiences with both. Most folks like to believe in angels only and forget about their evil counter parts, which many don’t understand are fallen angels.
    Thank you for sharing that- an amazing story to read now that I’m off to church.
    Have a Blessed day!! 🙂

      Perhaps I am too insensitive to experience the presence of angels – but I definitely have experienced the presence of Satan and his helpers.

      There are times when I feel under attack from demonic forces. Only immediate prayer for help to Our Lord Jesus Christ will stop these attacks. And visualising the Cross.

      These attacks are not something horrid like wanting to grab a knife and murder someone – no, these are the small, everyday things like suddenly having bad thoughts about a person, or getting cross and angry without reason. Or wanting something badly so that all thought is fixed on that something.
      All these attacks prevent one from praying as one should, and if one doesn’t ask for help, soon all one’s prayers feel like being said into a void. That is a very bad place to be in.

      As for angels – I think they may be the hands of the Holy Spirit, holding us up and preventing something bad to happen. Which of course means that we must never forget to give thanks whenever we pray.

      • Mum, I’ve never seen an angel- but I am convinced that in a few times in my life they have been around me and keeping me from being hurt in dangerous circumstances.
        As for the demonic-I have had a very real experience and if I could have seen the supernatural, I am certain that I would have seen the same angels standing guard over me. They are real- very, even if we can’t see them.

        ((((())))s mum!

        • poljunkie

          I’ve never experienced an angel the way some of you have identified.

          However i’ve done some pretty dumb and crazy things during my life. Things, that – as an adult, I look back on and think- what the heck was I thinking? Sometimes I think that someone, or something was definitely looking out for me. Protecting me and saving me for something better to come.

          On another level- I also think, and would like to believe- that when someone is dying, like in the case of my dad – something helped keep him going (even though he was really unconscious)….until my brother could travel here to say good bye.

          Something that seemed important, very important to my brother. Once he was here, my dad woke up for a few min…maybe 15 and was lucid… Then the same positive influence said all is good now.

          You’re at peace, and he let go.

          • Pol, I had that happen to a dear friend of mine. His sister who had been in and out of a coma, dying from many things, was not able to see or hear or talk, but when she was near that time- my friend and his other sisters went to be with her and she was completely lucid. It was a blessing to all of them.

            I did a couple of things too- which I look back on and say, “what an idiot- I almost died” but then other things, accidents- only the Grace of God for some reason He’s kept me here.

            • Sounds like something what happened when my grandmother was on her deathbed! All she Sclerosis on the back (can’t remember the name of the disease but it basically curved her back in a question mark) where she couldn’t walk, paralyzed from the waist, and her thoughts were incoherent. most of the time, she would either complain, not make any sense, or just sleep away. My mom, and my aunts all came to visit her one last time (during easter break) and on the day of Easter, it was like her old self again. She knew who everybody was in the room, she asked how I was doing, and she remembered the piano songs that her neighbor would play for her with his keyboard. That was the only day, on Easter, she was like that. The day after, it was like the normal routine, as if Easter never happened.

              If that is not a miracle I don’t know what is!

              • I thank God for times like that for people. Thanks Tex for sharing it. It shows that God still does miracles. 🙂

            • poljunkie

              Thats amazing isnt it? It was a gift to my brother.

              Oh geez, when I think back to my youth. I shiver.

              Even a few things we did as parents “in vacation mode” clearly not thinking. Heres a good example-
              We pride ourselves on being over protective parents. I mean strict but fair. Our son experienced many adventures growing up-mostly with us… but as he got older he did have some freedom. (We didn’t want him to be like we were when we were growing up)
              Our son who is in his 20’s now says he feels fortunate for having such a solid foundation.
              I don’t know if I have ever told you but we are in the process of climbing the 7 Summits. We’ve only done two. Unfortunately they get a lot harder from here on out, and a lot more expensive….. The first one we did was Kilimanjaro Africa.
              Anyway, about 15 years ago… we went to Mexico, and for some odd reason we let him talk us into letting him go parasailing- solo. The kind where they release you by boat.
              So we are on some beach adjacent to a boardwalk type atmosphere. Here comes the stupid part. We let some non English speaking guys take our son out, into the ocean in the boat….while we stayed on the shore (!!!!). Immediately it dawns on us that maybe that wasn’t a great idea. Well they release the sail and so far so good… ok our first fear was unwarranted. They are cruising back and forth and our little guy is waving, and we are like, ok its been 15, 20, now 30 min. Lets end this thing. They don’t and we start getting concerned. We are getting anxious and find another guy who is offering similar parasailing on his boat and ask him what’s up?
              He says, it looks like your child is too light and they cant bring him down. He said don’t worry it happens sometimes… What?
              So the boat goes further out lowering the sail OVER the boardwalk and the street.
              His shoe falls off!
              After about 90 min they got him down.
              Our son naturally, didn’t even know anything was wrong and loved the entire ride.
              But forever after that my husband and I have coined the phrase “vacation mode” and think twice about any activity we contemplate doing when away. Just because we’re on vacation doesn’t mean we need to be idiotic.

              • Holy moly girlie! OK honestly, I didn’t know you climbed! That would be so awesome. As for the parasailing, I can feel your anxiety for that- but yeah, what kid wouldn’t love an hour and a half! 😉 I’m glad it was OK.
                Mine are too long to write out here- but there was the time I got hit by a car when I was in 2nd grade. Thank God it was only a VW Bug and the hippies driving were nice and took me home bawling all the way.

                One time in Florida when I was 12, got a little too close to a pond, and didn’t know alligators could run. I must have looked like a tasty duck because he came straight for me from the middle of the pond. When he came up on the bank as I turned to run, he started running too. I’d never run so fast before or since.
                Another time was when I was trying to cross a river, swollen from spring run off, and almost got swept down, and there were water falls further down. I was holding onto a log trying to pull myself across, but the water swept my feet out from under me and my arms couldn’t hold on. One of the girls who was with us was a real tom boy and was muscular. She jumped in, swam over and held on behind me so we could both get across. Stupid thing to do- but when you’re mid teens, you don’t think about stupid.

                As for the parasail story, reminds me of when I worked at a summer camp when I graduated high school. I tried wind surfing for the first time. The lake Coochaching, was indian for Lake of many winds. Needless to say, the winds do change on a dime- I did well for the first bit, then got blown into the middle of the lake, then dead calm lol. I was stuck out there for half the afternoon, got a wicked tan and was late getting back for my shift 😉 oh man, the memories. I’d better shut up now- I’ve got a million of them!! LOL. Thanks girlie.

                • poljunkie

                  Oh geez. I didnt know alligators could run either. Thankfully, you ran faster.

                  Oh no the VW Bug story….i’m glad you were ok, and kind of funny they gave you a ride home.

                  Your river story reminds me of a time when I was probably about 20 and we went white water rafting in those little yellow tahiti kayaks. Yes, we thought we knew it all. The guys had their own and us girls shared one. She and I filled ours with a bunch of junk we didnt need, boom box, ice chest, and then we took turns sitting back wards. So we go thru some white water and then rapids and naturally sitting backwards I wasnt prepared and I didnt just fall out, I was a spectacular ejection, followed by being sucked under water into the hole. Then I popped out like a piece of toast.
                  My friend and I were both in the water and the kayak was in front of us and our stuff was floating everywhere.
                  After we managed to get most of the stuff – we both sat face forward and didnt say much.

                  Windsurfing? Wow, you rock. I could barely keep the sail up when I tried. It was pretty tough.

                  I have a lot of them too. I got lost in a blizzard skiing once- I mean really lost.

                  When I was about 7, we went to a local grocery store to pick up a blue chip stamp book, and while I was there the store was held up…The clerk pulled a gun on the robber. what did I do? Why, I ran out of course….AND the robber shot over my head! My mom was sitting in the parking lot, and was waving her arm, telling me to get down, and I was waving back. hi mom!

                  Another time someone broke into my parents house when I was a junior in high school. They had an alarm – which I never used….But that night…oddly, I had turned it on.

                  Edit for spelling

                • Holy cow girlie!!! Oh man you and I could do some major damage if we ever got together!! LOL.
                  I’m sorry, but you running out of the store waving at your mom while the a$$ inside was shooting…. sounds like something I’d do lol.

                  I guess God has a reason for us all being here… at such a time as this. And with our experiences and faith, well, it’s helping us to be encouraged. 🙂 Love you girlfriend.

                • poljunkie

                  Oh, and my mom drove her car into the wall of the parking lot….no damage… I guess she had her foot on the brake, instead of in park.

                  I know…Could you imagine your son running out of a store like that? I’d have bout died if the same situation happened and it was my son.

                  oh ha! You and I….Too much funnnnnnnn……….Watch out Florida.

              Thank you. I just saw your post today.

              • I find it hard to close out this thread… I keep re-checking it for new posts! It’s almost like a religious “calling” that I “must” read this thread… Strange I know… But it’s a “calling” I know I must do… or I’ll miss something or lose something… hard to describe… But I think I was *meant* to read this post/thread. I just can’t explain it… I know it sounds wacko! But it is what it is and I must read every post and save them for future reading…

                  I agree Wolfie. I find it energizing, and much more appealing than the news.
                  I’ve been checking it all morning.

      Your point it well-taken, ABC. I think more churches should be teaching courses in Spiritual Warfare.

      You are so right American, there is also evil. If one exists, so does the other.

    • bobemakk

      great post.

  • Army_Pilot1967

    First of all I’m glad you had some Army experience while you were a young man. Hopefully you gained something of value from your time in the Army. Secondly, I’m born-again and God has blessed me many times over, and He has kept me safe in some dicey situations. It has to be God’s protection because my personal luck isn’t any good. I don’t care what others believe or don’t believe, I’m going with my beliefs because in the end that’s what counts for me. I just feel better when I commune with God on a daily basis. Wishing you the best always, 911Infidel.

  • RefudiateGOPe

    Maybe the question should be “Why would someone NOT believe in angels?”.

  • Many of the Bible’s historical accounts include angels. But they aren’t fat, winged babies. When fully revealed, they are described as blindingly bright and fearsomely powerful.

    • Cindy09

      Heck, you just reminded me that it’s gonna take ONE SINGLE ANGEL to bind and throw Satan in the pit at the end of times!

  • MeanGreenBeret

    There are Angels among us.

    They just wear exceptional camouflage.

  • First off, great story thanks for sharing! As to the question. YES! I Absolutely believe in Angles… And as ABiC pointed out below, both of us believe in demons as well.

    • sjmom

      If you ever think you’re being confronted by the demonic just call out loud “Jesus”. The Lord will come and evil will leave. I’ve done it and it works.

  • sjmom

    I do believe in angels and love the verse you quoted from Hebrews 11:6 for our God definitely rewards those who diligently seek Him. There are so many stories in the Bible where angels intervene in the lives of men and I have no doubt 911 Infidel God sent His mighty angel to save you that day. “Are they not all ministering spirits, sent forth to minister for them who shall be heirs of salvation?” Hebrews 1:14 KJV

    Thank you for your posts 911 Infidel. I am enjoying every one.

  • americalsgt

    Call them fate if you wish, but I’m sticking with angels.

    There was one time when I was in the service that I felt something from somewere. We were going up a small river bed out in the mountains near the Cambodian border ( at least that is what we were told) and for no reason I asked the Lt. if I could take a couple guys with me down a tributary. I “never” walked point but this one time I did (advantage of carrying a 79) but shortly thereafter there was the sound of enemy fire and a scream for medic from where I was supposed to be. I have no answer for why I did what I did.

    The other time I was at the end of my rope and was thinking about renting a ruger and buying a bullet. I was sitting outside at a cafe when out of nowhere someone sits beside me. I’d never seen this person before and he just sat there with me for a few minutes. We didn’t say much to one another, and I didn’t tell him my thoughts, but after a bit he got up and walked away and I felt a change. So yea – I’m saying angels are real. There is no other explanation.

  • WordsFailMe

    Never look a giftchrist in the mouth

  • FreeManWalking

    Thanks 911, one of my favorite verses about angles is 2 Kings 6:17.

  • Godisright

    You hit the nail 911Infidel !
    Many people in this country choose to walk by sight. When calamity strikes they ask, “Where was/is God?” The answer to that question is another: Where are we?
    Salvation means to be saved, saving, protection and that can only be received by FAITH. God is a Father who wants the best for His kids. If His children want to wander away from His protection, they should not expect to be rewarded for their disobedience. Diligence is a powerful thing and His reward to us is beyond all that we can ask or think.
    Great story!

  • While I’ve never experienced angels myself my dad did (whether he knows it or not) and I’d like to share you his story on his behalf:

    My dad was driving on his way home from work and had gotten off onto the feeder road. After waiting for the red light to turn green, he starts to go, and some other car comes barreling down the road, hitting my dad on the side of the truck, which made it flip over. He said all he could remember was life flight was there and they had to use the “jaws” to free him out. Him not wearing a seatbelt ACTUALLY saved his life (this was before police cracked down on “click it or ticket”) They got him out of the truck, and this woman wearing a black dress leans over and comforts him saying everything will be alright and would not leave his side until he was air lifted. He was going to thank her as he was put on the gurney but there wasn’t a sign or trace of her, she basically disappeared.
    Now get this: In all the line of traffic that was stopped, my mom was in it. She had no idea that just a few meters down, was her husband. As she sat there, she was praying to god to watch over the person, and send thin to heaven if he didn’t make it. It wasn’t until later we get a call from Hermann Hospital, that she realized she was praying to my dad all this time! I’ve had heard of reports of people seeing a woman in a black dress that’s always around accidents yet disappears before anyone catches a glimpse. I’m for certain, it was an angel that was there for my dad.

    And as I said, while I haven’t seen or experienced an angel…well actually, I just remembered one night driving home from the store and i turn my head to see an ambulance in one of our neighbors street a couple blocks down from my house, and this, what I could describe it as a “strobe light”, flying out the top window into the sky. It was so strange to see it, yet mesmerizing. You piece it together with the ambulance and you come to the conclusion, you just witnessed someone rising to heaven. Or I’m just completely bonkers and its only a UFO! 😛

    One things for certain, I have been through and had witnessed many miracles to know that God is there always watching out for you. And I am a prime example of what you would call a “miracle baby”. But this post is getting too long, so if you’d like to hear another miracle story involving yours truly, let me know and I’ll post it as a response. 🙂

    • wadnnit

      Let’s hear it! thx for these.

    • poljunkie

      Wow. I thought you were going to say your mom had been wearing a black dress.

    • Too long?! Have you seen the length of some of mine? Let’s hear it Tex! I want to hear the other one!
      Thanks for sharing!!!

    • Please do post more. Thank you for sharing what you have so far.

    • This miracle is how the legendary SilentTexan got started! 😀

      So, my mom had been trying to have kids for a long time, it had been about ten years after she was married to my dad and had problems getting pregnant, the closest having a miscarriage. On April, a few days after her birthday, her grandmother (my great-grandmother) passed away. It was especially tough for her since she came to her grandmother for everything. My mom always prayed and prayed for a child and thanking the lord all the same for a blessed life. A year later on that same month, she found out that little ol’ me was conceived! Saying they were ecstatic was an understatement. They made the nursery without even knowing whether I was a boy or a girl! (turned out they were wrong:P )
      But than something was wrong when my mom’s water broke. It was a dark red and my neighbor who had 6 kids already told her that she needs to go now! Our neighbor drove my mom to the hospital with dad following behind, and they got her in quickly. It turns out, that the umbilical cord had broken off and my mom was bleeding internally. Both of our lives were in danger, and putting my mom to sleep, they did a C-section and got me out just in time! My poor dad must have been a wreck. They wouldn’t tell him what was going on and told him to wait in the waiting room. My mom had to stay in the hospital to recover, so my dad and uncle were my parents for a few weeks! Although a week later I catch pneumonia and ended up back in the hospital :/ Basically, my mom didn’t get to hold me until a month later! I was considered a premie since I was out a little too early. Don’t remember what my weight was.
      With all the complications that had been going on, God blessed my mom with her first (and only) child. And would you believe it, I don’t look anything like my parents but I do look like my great-grandma, lol! Have the same smile, buck-teeth, oily-irish skin. I’m not saying I might be reincarnation of my great-grandmother because i don’t believe in that but I do think I was a gift.
      And look at me now! I’m still alive and kickin’ making a difference (hopefully) for my country!


      • Wow oh WOW! God is Awesome! And how special is it that you look like your great grandma!! You are a blessing Tex. Don’t ever doubt that!! And yes, you’re making a difference too, and a big help to me!

  • Rshill7

    I believe in all of God’s creation…angels included. Gabriel plays a “mean” trumpet, and Michael wields a sword that would make Excalibur cringe like a shrinking violet.

    There is at least one type of air I do not believe in. That air which I can see 🙂

  • BayouCoyote

    Absolutely & I’m thankful for mine.

    Exodus 23:20-21 (Amplified Bible) 20Behold, I send an Angel (messenger) before you to keep and guard you on the way and to bring you to the place I have prepared.
    21Give heed to Him, listen to and obey His voice; be not rebellious before Him or provoke Him, for He will not pardon your transgression; for My Name is in Him

  • denbren52

    First of all, the answer is a resounding “YES”! I believe in Jesus and I believe in His army of angels. As we were practicing and performing Christmas music a few weeks ago, I began to wonder about that night when the angel appeared to the shepherds and then a great company of the heavenly host of angels appeared in the sky singing “Glory to God in the Highest …”

    Can you imagine what that was like? Here they are out in the pastures near a quiet little town that is currently overflowing with folks who have had to make the same trip as Mary and Joseph so that they could register for the census. The story is told of how the shepherds at first were frightened. Yeah! I bet they were!! But we never hear about how the townspeople and all their guests reacted when they heard hundreds of angels singing out over the nearby pastures.

    Surely that shook things up a bit in Bethlehem! Did people come running toward the pastures? Or did they hide in fear? Did they realize something wonderful was happening? Or did they fear the worst? We envision a quiet manger scene with just a few people and some animals. I now realize that there was perhaps quite a bit more commotion surrounding that manger than what we might have thought. After all, those angels gave Him quite a welcome!

    • I’ve thought about that night too denbren. I wonder though, if many in Bethlehem were even aware of the heavenly host and their welcoming song…. too many people don’t believe or choose to ignore. That is a real pity.
      It must have been amazing for sure- but wait until we get to heaven to see it for ourselves! 🙂

  • Nukeman60

    There is a story that I’ve read about how the first Russian cosmonaut, Yuri Gagarin, was instructed by Soviet premier Khrushchev to watch out for angels when he went into space in April, 1962. On his return he reported that he had seen no angels. Khrushchev is said to have replied, “Good, I knew you wouldn’t. There are no such things!”

    It is all too easy to assume that what you do not see does not exist. It does not discount them. It merely means you are not looking in the right place. Yes, angels do exist and they are there to help us, if we fear God.

    Truth does not depend on what you can see. That was the big mistake made by Khrushchev – “the things that are seen are transient, but the things that are unseen are eternal” (from 2 Corinthians 4:18).

    “Open thou mine eyes, that I may behold wondrous things out of thy law.” (Psalm 119:18)

    Oh, yeah. I most certainly do believe.

  • poljunkie

    I love it.

    Scripture tells us that there are supernatural beings. God, Jesus, Holy Spirit, Angels (good and bad), Satan, and demons. Since I hold to the scripture in all things, I believe in angels existence.

  • Rshill7

    Many years ago on a trip from Michigan to Tennessee to visit my Dad, me, my wife and three children were travelling down the interstate in a rainstorm in an ’85 Ford Station wagon with tires that were not nearly up to snuff. The back of the vehicle was weighed down too with our vacation gear.

    I was driving in the fast lane and we went into a counterclockwise spin. As the vehicle went perpendicular to the highway I knew it was an irrevocable spin. I was immediately gifted with calm and clarity, as time slowed way down for me. When we were completely backwards I noticed a car in the opposing fast lane closely zipping by in the opposite direction with no appreciable median in between.

    We did a perfect 360 and came to a smooth stop facing the proper direction right on the shoulder of the slow lane. The only thing I remember saying while we were spinning was “Oh my God” and “Save us Jesus”.

    As we all came to our senses and the children stopped sniffling, we made it slowly to the next exit where we got new rubber all the way around. I have absolutely no doubt whatsoever that God sent angels to grab both ends of that car and set it aright. It could have easily started flipping at that perpendicular point had the road not been so slick. Physics will tell you that.

    Every member of our little family remembers it vividly, and feels the same.

    Are there angels? No doubt about it. Is there a God, Christ and Holy Spirit?

    Well, I believe much more in all of the above than I do in myself.

    • I’m glad angels saved you and your family. I firmly believe my daughter has an angel and hubby too due to their very closes shaves.

      • Rshill7

        I was late for an appointment and not paying close enough attention another time before I was married (20 yrs old). Zipped across a railroad crossing in Texas which didn’t have a proper gate, near Livingston. Missed the train by approximately 20 feet. It took about 30 minutes for my heart rate to return to normal.

        I also had an episode in a hotel room once while on a business trip (still 20 years old, and a young sales manager). I had been straddling the fence between being a believer and seriously questioning everything. Either Satan himself, or some other extremely large and evil demon presence appeared at the foot of my bed and said, “I’m ready to take you, what’s it gonna be? Make your choice!” The face was indescribably evil. No artist could render it nor author adequately describe it.

        All I could do was continually repeat “Save me Jesus”. A group of angel warriors entered that room and battled with that evil as well as it’s demon reinforcements for what seemed like hours. My next memory was that I was drenched in sweat, and profoundly thankful to my Savior. My belief has been as firm as granite ever since.

        I always hesitate telling this due to the fantastic nature of it.

        If you’ve ever read “This Present Darkness”, you’ve seen descriptions of angels battling demons. That’s a halfway decent description of what I experienced.

        • Awesome! I’m hesitant about telling my own story as it involves a demon as well, but thank you for sharing that! It’s good to know I’m not the only one that has experienced the “dark angels” as well.

          • Rshill7

            Also when I was 21 yrs. old, I hopped on the back of my buddy’s new Yamaha Seca 750 motorcycle. Neither of us were wearing helmets. We were heading down a two-lane country highway just outside Fort Worth at about 63 mph. The lady ahead of us slammed on her brakes for no reason at all…there was no one in front of her.

            My friend hit the back brakes a little too hard and I came swinging around to where we were side by side. We swung back briefly the other way before laying the bike down. He and I were bouncing down the highway like rag dolls.

            I remember popping up in the air twice and landing on my feet both times. I kept thinking what it was going to feel like when my skull was squashed like a pumpkin pinata on the road. The first time I couldn’t keep up with myself, and flipped again. The second time I landed on my feet and started running…right into an oncoming vehicle in the opposing lane. I crossed in front him at a dead run and dove into the ditch.

            We both survived with lots of road rash. My left rear jeans pocket was eaten right through, and through a layer of my leather wallet as well. My left arm was wrapped for weeks, and I haven’t been on a motorcycle since.

            Every time I am tempted to buy one, I recall that incident and the desire passes.

            The lady in the car ahead of us that caused us to hit the brakes didn’t hit anyone, and was crying like a baby after the incident as we dusted ourselves off and the intense pain commenced. She hadn’t hit anybody or anything, but went into shock at what she had seen in her rear view mirror. She thought she’d killed us. She was hurried off in the first ambulance. We waited for the second.

            I am still here for some reason Wolf.

            • Rshill7

              There are many reasons why I have very little patience when it comes to atheists. The little bit of patience I am able to exhibit is forced 🙂

              I know what I know, and could write a book about all the reasons I have for believing.

              My very own Mother had a firm cyst in one of her breasts when I was a young teen. It vanished. One week it was there. The following it was not.

              To those of you who will not believe. Good luck. You’re going to need it, but will not have it. As one of my favorite songs states: “Reach out to Jesus…He’s reaching out to you.”

              He doesn’t show up uninvited. He’s too much of a Gentleman for that.

              Invite him in.

            • I’m sorry mybear, but the last bit about her going in the first ambulance made me laugh. It’s serious, but you’ve got a way of telling it.

              I for one am SO glad you’re still here, and I know why. You have been a blessing with your words, faith and music to many… especially me. I am glad you’re here mybear.

        • “I always hesitate telling this due to the fantastic nature of it.”

          I didn’t see the demon who was trying to get me. So I don’t tell it too often for the same reason. But I’ll tell you, they hang with you no matter where you are, for it followed me from Texas to Florida. Jesus saved me in more ways than One. xoxox

        • Thanks for the response Rshill. I will look up the books.

    • Oh wow mybear!! That gave me shivers.

      • Rshill7

        I weighed 9 lbs 10 ounces when I was born. That same evening the doctors told Mom that something was amiss with me. They decided to do a spinal tap, perhaps to see if I had meningitis or something. Mom stayed up all night in continual prayer for me. The next morning they pronounced all well and I went home to meet my brothers and sister.

        Mom and Dad taught me piano. Dad would give me extra lessons during his lunch hour. My sister taught me the guitar basics, and I took it from there.

        To this day I feel like I have an extra special place in Mom and Dad’s heart out of all the siblings. I know I have an extra special place in God’s. So do you. All of you.

        Do I sometimes have doubts these days? No, I do not. Not in the least.

        P.S. I cannot read very many Bible verses out loud in front of others without tears rolling down my face. In fact, that is happening right now. See ya’ll later.

        • poljunkie

          My parents got married in 1943.

          My mom always wanted a housefull of children. If she could of- she said she would of had 4 or 5 kids. I’m sure my dad would have agreed. He pretty much agreed to anything.

          They lived their lives, WWII, working, opening a business and thru out the time they tried and she miscarried a few times.
          My dad went to a specialist in the early 50’s and he said, you’re fine…its your wife who is having a problem keeping the pregnancies past the first 12 weeks, but here is a bottle of vitamins…if you feel like it take one or two a day…It might help strengthen things on your end.
          Years passed, and eventually my parents adopted two children. First, my sister and then my brother.

          Five months past their 17th anniversary my mom found out she was pregnant again and was thrilled. By this time having a baby was pretty much out of both of their minds. The doctor said, dont expect to make it past the first 12 weeks. Given your past history, and now how OLD your are—it will never happen. But try to take it easy and we’ll see.

          Not taking any chances my dad had her stay in bed as much as possible.

          …AND I am happy to report that I was born 6 1/2 weeks early.

          When my dad showed up to the hospital he brought the mostly empty bottle of vitamins which he started taking again when he found out she was pregnant!!!

          • I love my pol sis.

          • Rshill7

            One more:

            Back in ’92 we were hosting a Bible study at our house for the young married couples. What a great group we had! They all thought our kids were like little Cherubs. So did we.

            Anyway, that previous week as I was Bible reading and trying to come with the topic for the next study, I noticed that when the Old Testament was listing the Ten Commandments in Exodus chapter 20, the writer (God, through Moses) broke away, right in the midst of the list and said this:

            “Thou shalt not bow down thyself to them, nor serve them: for I the LORD thy God am a jealous God, visiting the iniquity of the fathers upon the children unto the third and fourth generation of them that hate me; And shewing mercy unto thousands of them that love me, and keep my commandments. (Exodus 20:5-6)

            One of the couples (early 30’s) during the following study wanted us all to pray for them because they had been trying unsuccessfully for years to have a baby. They had spent much money and had been to many doctors, who could not find any legitimate reason why that was the case.

            I walked my words very, very, lightly with them as the Exodus verses came into my head. I asked them if there were someone in either of their family’s past that might have been particularly dark or even evil that they knew of. They looked at each other and the woman had tears starting to well up as she spoke of her great grandmother. I asked them if they wanted to confess and break that generational curse, and they agreed. So did everyone else in attendance.

            We were all already in a circle, and joined hands. We asked for God to break that curse, and the couple themselves also prayed out loud confessing the possibility of a curse and asking God to break it. We all agreed in the name of Jesus. When they both left, they seemed noticeably happier and filled with hope.

            Four weeks later they had an announcement to make. They were four weeks pregnant. They also had two more kids after that 🙂

            Don’t tell me that there is no God. I may listen, but will not believe it. It doesn’t matter what you say or how you say it.

            God is. That’s it.

            • I remember that story mybear! You told me about it once here. It’s an incredible one!!

              • Rshill7

                I don’t even have to mention what my son went through last year with his brain surgery do I?.

                He’s out touring the US with a friend. He’s somewhere in Florida last we heard a few days ago. Just as right as rain 🙂

                • I know!! Amazing isn’t it. God is SO good. I wish I knew where in Florida he was- I’d go say hey 😉

                • poljunkie

                  I remember the story about your son. I thought that was incredible.

                  Didnt you get the phone call from Gov Perry?
                  I have told a lot of people about that.

                • Rshill7

                  Yes, he called on his way to Mackinaw Island where he was to speak at the Republican Leadership Conference. We were supposed to be there too and were really looking forward to it but had more pressing issues at the University Of Michigan Medical Center and had to cancel.

                  One of our best friends was acting as his driver/security and told him our story. Perry said, can you call them right now? Our cellphone rang while we were in the room with our son. It was right before his surgery, and Perry said he would pray for him.

                • poljunkie

                  I love that.

      Isn’t the slow motion of a near death or maybe a near life experience amazingly crystal clear, to be relished and relived at whim…..again in slow motion. God provides the most cherished moments in life and death, I believe.

  • If you believe in God, then you believe in angels.
    If not, then youre the reason why there are so many warning labels on everything.

    • Constance

      Hey, be nice! I believe in God, but I’m not sure about angels. I don’t believe that warning labels are a direct result of me…. 🙂

    • unclesamnephew

      now that made me laugh! thanks

  • Great story!

  • 1endtimes2020

    Great story. Yes, angels do exist. Remember how they ‘attended’ to Jesus before He was crucified, gave a mesage to Mary from the Father? Good angels, and bad ones, one third who were followers of Lucifer, etc.
    We have God on our side when we obey Him. I believe ‘doing good produces more good, and doing evil produces more evil.
    You must be living right. I fear for the USA with all the sins going on and anti-Christs becoming bolder all the time. We risk losing our long-term, historical protection of God. Your story is an example of that protection.
    My own experiences in life are my own personal proof.

  • All in all, a very inspiring post by 911Infidel and all your great comments about Angles. Just the thing I needed to read today. It’s a Sunday too. BIG THANK to you all for sharing such personal and uplifting stories from your lives. Praise be to God and may HE bless you all!

    During the Gulf War, I worked with a woman whose husband was a chaplain there. She told me he wrote to her that when it came time for his troops to advance into Kuwait (not sure what mission) they were unsure what would happen bc desert warfare being new to them. A wind that usually blew northernly that time of year picked up and blew southernly, exposing the landmines, and they were able to advance without hitting the mines. He told her they had prayed before the advance, and soldiers came to Christ as a result. This was the year I had just come to Christ, and this story took my breath away, and was a personal testimony to me from the Lord. I barely knew the woman but for some reason she told me, unsolicited.

    At the time, I thought, “These are the stories that need to get in the news.”

    I also thought, “The Lord is a man of war, indeed. And His way is phenomenal.”

    How many other soldiers’ stories have never been heard?

    • 1endtimes2020

      There have been, and still are, so many examples of God helping people. Once, I saw a program of a man who was working under his truck when the jack collapsed. The weight cut him in half, and yet he was repaired by God. The doctors were amazed. Another time when two angels held the truck up and someone pulled a trapped man from underneath. In God we trust has never been so important. That’s why anti-Christs want the words removed.

  • Constance

    I don’t know if I believe in angels. I believe in God, but I’m not sure about angels. At least not in the way I grew up understanding what angels are supposed to be. I just don’t know, honestly.

    • Is_Sense_Common posted above Constance, where angels are found in the Bible. They are real. Maybe not seen by most, but they are real.

      • MiketheMarine

        I KNOW that Angels exist and sometimes he will use a normal, common mortal in an Angelic way. You, My Dear Duckie, have been an Angel of Mercy and may never fully understand what it is you’ve done for me these last few months. I was having a rough go of it but you and a few others who know who they are, pulled me back from that abyss that all vets approach from time to time. You are an Angel as far as I can see.

        • Seconded! Stay strong Brother! Just as you’ve got our back, we’ve got yours! 🙂

      keep reading the warning lables then. the Holy Bible has the best warnings of all

  • Fireplug52

    What amazes me anymore, is the lack of imagination and belief. Those in our world will believe what comes out of a persons mouth in this life and will be quick to doubt the spiritual aspects of our belief in Jesus Christ.

    This includes those beings known to us as angels. Throughout the bible they are mentioned. Time and time again. I believe very much in them and what their function in the spiritual realm is.

    Maybe I am getting older, and my walk with the Lord has not been a holy and righteous one, but I will continue to believe who he is and that his kingdom is what we believe it to be as told to us throughout the bible and by the words he spoke to the Apostles and his followers.

    Time and time again those beings that administered unto our Lord during his time in the desert and throughout the Old Testament were shown to carry out the will of God. Then I being redeemed by his sacrifice in his death on the cross should doubt that our God is not the same God who created the heavens and the earth? How smart of me!

    “Because the foolishness of God is wiser than men, and the weakness of God is stronger than men.” 1 Corinthians 1:18-25

        If you are alive. It isn’t. – Messiah Handbook from Illusions


        • Excellent my sweet Akabosan! How are you?!

          • Akabosan

            “My Sweet” yourownself, AmericanborninCanada. All of the TRUTH that any of us needs can be found in a red letter edition of the bible. The first four books of the New Testament gives us the keys to the kingdom. One phrase that has been my consolation of late is “…be in the world, but not of it.” Christ Consciousness is at hand and I perceive that you are one who is there, or on the threshold.

            God Bless you for your works and may you know that you know the peace that passes all understanding.


            • You ARE Sweet! Yes my friend, for quite a while, I’ve been living one foot here and one foot in heaven, looking more and more forward to the Lord’s return. I love that verse too Akabosan. Actually I love the few verses which go so well with it.

              Be careful for nothing; but in every thing by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving let your requests be made known unto God.
              And the peace of God, which passeth all understanding, shall keep your hearts and minds through Christ Jesus.
              Finally, brethren, whatsoever things are true, whatsoever things are honest, whatsoever things are just, whatsoever things are pure, whatsoever things are lovely, whatsoever things are of good report; if there be any virtue, and if there be any praise, think on these things.

              • Akabosan

                Never fret. With faith such as yours, you and your household are protected as those of former ‘passovers.’ Faith IS the evidence of things unseen. Right now, being in the world and not of it is the greatest show on earth.


        • MiketheMarine

          I am living proof of that. I should not have survived several different events but here I sit typing and shouting from the roof tops, God has saved me for something. I don’t know what that is but I WILL not fail him. He has never failed me.


  • Alborn

    I believe in the word of the Bible and their are many references to Angels. Therefore I believe they are around those seeking to live and share the Word of God. My son was driving late at night on Christmas Day to visit with us. He had gotten off his 11pm shift at the 911 call center and fell asleep at the wheel. When we got to the scene of the accident his car was in the median of the interstate stuck in drain where it had landed after spinning around at least two times that he remembers. He got out without a scratch on him and only a minor scratch on the side of the car but the front bumper was dislodged. The wrecker came and pulled his car out and he was able to drive it the remaining 40 miles to our house. The next morning he had a flat tire where the back tire had been pressed away from the wheel. He definitely had the hand of the Spirit of God looking out for him. He was a short distance from an overpass where he could have easily hit the concrete wall if he had been just a little distance farther down the road and if he had gone off the other side of the road his car would have most likely flipped and hit trees. We thank God everyday for being with our son that night.

  • OldmanRick

    Yes, I do believe in angels as God’s messengers and as human guardians. Otherwise, I would never have made it home from Nam.

    • Welcome home. Thank you for your service, and welcome to the Right Scoop. God Bless.

  • Cindy09

    I believe in angels and demons. My hubby has had one of those divine experiences. One time, coming back from picking up his son (from a previous marriage), he got stuck on the highway at sundown – in a very remote place. All he could do was calling onto God. And suddenly, there appeared a truck behind him with an old man driving. The old man had several barrels of gas in the back of his truck: prime, regular and diesel. He addressed him: ” Son, I see you ran out of gas. Which one do you need?”. It was more a formality because the old man somehow already knew he needed unleaded. Hubby told me that to his amazement, his vehicle got filled up in a matter of second. He was so surprised! He came out to thank the old man and within the seconds, he opened his door, sat in his vehicle and turned to wave goodbye, the old man was gone and so was his truck!! Disappeared!! Just like that!! Hubby made it home and he told his mother about the whole story. All she said was that the time corresponded to the exact time when she felt compelled to pray for both of them!

    Amen… and I’ve got another one for you. This just happened last week.

    I play the drums for several Sunday services at my church. Last week, right at the end of the first song, the beater on my bass drum pedal stuck clear into the bass drum head, which was now broken and cracked on the left hand side. For the next 2 songs, I used the floor tom as a replacement for the broken bass drum, but I was worried about what I would do in the last song as I needed both hands to play a complicated part on the snare drum and could afford the luxury of dedicating a hand to the floor tom.

    The Pastor came up to deliver a prayer between the third and fourth songs, and while my head was bowed (and therefore, I was looking directly at the bass drum) and I was trying to figure out what I would do during the last song, the bass drum suddenly (and without any contact from me) rolled to the left while the pedal detached itself – the result was, the beater was now perfectly aligned with the unbroken part of the bass drum head and I was able to use it in the last song.

    Small miracles…

    A true story:

    A Doctor riddled with cancer for more than six months had finally consumed him to the point of a non-recognizable mass. After the best medical treatment money, his fellow colleagues, and best experts could muster had failed to improve his condition the decision was made to remove his life support. With family, close friends, and clergy at his bedside he was not expected to survive the night. The next morning he sat up in bed, asked why everyone was there and said he was starving would they tell the staff to bring him a tray. Two days later he was released from the hospital the Doctors say cancer free. This story was told at a Tea Party rally in 2008 by the Doctor himself. ((Side Note: the TP rally was to be held at the local fair grounds but the County cancelled the permit (obtained three weeks before the event was to take place) one hour before it was sceduled to start. A local church allowed its building to be used at the last minute for the event, the church of this Doctor.)) I mentioned this to my sister later that day (my sister had 30+ years as a medical office manager for several prominent Doctors in this area.) and she confirmed the story as she herself had visited the Doctor just days prior and didn’t even recognize him. Do you believe in miracles? I know a Doctor that without any doubt whatsoever will testify that God placed his hand on him that night and said to him you have more yet to do. I dare you to hear him speak and hold back tears. It is not just words, you can see it, you can feel it. Today, this Doctor is still practicing medicine helping save other’s lives serving God.

    Good story. I been out of pocket awhile. My mother of 85 years passed away Dec.30.

    I believe this soldier.
    I saw an angel over my bed as a 4 or 5 year old.
    Of course, I didn’t know this was unusual. I was too young
    to know that. My Mom, who always had a deep trust in God,
    never doubted me. We were new immigrants to this country
    (from Eastern Europe), experiencing very difficult times. I do
    believe my Angel was sent to strengthen and encourage us.

  • This isn’t as much an angel story as it is a faith that God hears us story. I want to do as our brotherbear suggested and keep the stories coming, because they are SO uplifting when there’s so much yucky and evil stuff going on right now.

    My dad has a history of heart problems that ran in his family. His dad died when I was 10, he was such a great guy. His brother died when he was 45. Dad has always been active and always tried to take care of himself.
    My folks came down to visit me not too long after I moved to Florida, but dad wasn’t feeling well. It was warm, October, and the heat seemed to tire him out. Long story short, dad had his first heart attack a couple of days after he and my mom got back home.

    Fast forward a few years. One day I got a call from my sister. Dad had another heart attack. This one was a big one. He’d need quadruple bypass surgery, and even then, the doctors could only give him a slim chance of survival. The surgery was going to be the next day.

    That night, I could not sleep at all. I hear about the stories of near death experiences where one’s life flashes before their eyes. I wasn’t dying, but my life with my dad was flashing through my mind. I was a daddy’s girl. Every game of catch in the back yard, every vacation, every baseball and hockey game, every talk- even from when I was 4 and he tried to explain what it meant to be adopted. Everything. Finally, I got up at about 3 in the morning, just praying and calling out to God to please let my dad live. I prayed for peace for him, and my mom and for me, that I’d be able to sleep so I could be ready when the news came.
    I sat here at my desk trying to calm my nerves, and I happened to look at a calendar on the wall here by my computer. It had Psalm verses for each month. It was June. It was my birthday. The Psalm was 23.

    I’d heard bits and pieces of it, it had been read at my nana’s funeral. But this time, I opened the Bible, and really read it for the first time- and I was immediately at peace. The most amazing peace I’d ever had. I told Jesus thank you, went back to bed and fell instantly to sleep. The next morning, I called my mom and read it to her. She cried, but thanked me for it, and left for the hospital with my sister.
    About 7 hours later, I got the call. Dad came through, operation a complete success. He was in a lot of pain, but doing well.

    I got my dad for my birthday. I still have my dad. He’s in his upper 80’s, still plays golf in the summer, and curls in the winter. God gave me my dad.

      It was to your dad, he gave you ABC. 🙂

    • white531

      I don’t believe I can actually comment on that. I can still type, because I still have a keyboard. Problem is, I can’t see the computer screen. It’s a little blurred. I’m sure there is just something wrong with the monitor. 🙂

      You are the perfect example of someone who has been blessed their entire life. I wish all of us could be so blessed. The world would be such a beautiful place, instead of what it is.

      In my next life, I wanna be a Duck.

      • I admit, I teared up typing it, remembering. Thank you for your sweet words whitefriend. In your next life, you’ll be hanging around with this duck- believe sweet friend, and it’s going to be an awesome reunion some day. ((((())))s

        • Both of ye in a duck paradise where ducks are free to fly and swim and never have anything to worry about. 🙂 Ducky Heaven on Earth!

      • white531

        Seriously, AmericanborninCanada, I have read a lot of stuff you have written. Its always good, but nothing you have ever written, came even close to that.

        It will stay with me for days. What a treasure you are.

        I think at some point, God took over, and is writing for you.

        • He’s done that for me before whitefriend. On my blog sometimes. It’s not a hollywood spooky God takes me over type of thing, but once in a while if there’s a message He wants me to say, He gives me the words to say it.
          It was from my heart this one, but I thank you so much for your sweet words. You mean a lot to me whitefriend.

          • white531

            Sometimes I just put my fingers on the keyboard, like right now, and they just start typing. I don’t always know where the words come from, but they always seem to come.

            The Santelli Rants I come up with sometimes, are the same thing. When I start typing, I don’t know what will come of it. Sometimes I hit a home run. Sometimes I strike out.

            That is the best thing about Conservative venues. Everything is presented here, and everyone gets to comment. Your comments either win or lose, but even when you lose, you lose with friends watching your back.

            I have an additional advantage. Nobody messes with the Duck.

            • lol. Truer words never spoken. I know the feeling. Only when I think I’ve said something that will bomb, I get a lot of ‘likes’ lol. Sometimes I say something I think is decent, and well- bomb. I think folks can tell when what we say comes from our hearts- and they share that with us.

              Nobody messes with the Duck- I am so blessed because I have more folks watching my back here than I ever had in real life- and it’s an honor.

              • white531

                Its an honor that is well deserved.

                I think once you get your citizenship, you should run for President. Hell, if Obama can do it, anyone can do it.

                • LOL Good grief, don’t think I haven’t thought about it! 😉 I love you whitefriend.

              • Same here. Don’t Disrespect Dis Duck! 🙂

            • We’ve all got your back here my friend. Everyone here looks out for each other. Even if we disagree, we try to do it in a respectful and honorable manner. I just wish everyone in the world was like the folks I meet and chat with here. The fact that there are folks like the ones here keeps my faith strong and helps me keep some hope for humanity. God bless.

    • poljunkie

      I love that you love your dad so much, and that you got him to keep him!
      (and I love that he curls!)

      It’s stories like yours that make me miss my dad even more.

      • I’m sorry Polsis. I know you loved your dad so very much too, and I’m sorry you’ve not had him for a while here. I dread that day. Honestly, being so far away from them, I still picture them in my mind how they looked the day I left home. It scares me sometimes to see how much they’ve aged, but they are still active and healthy- and I am so grateful. I pray I will get to see them again before that dreaded call. But too many things are standing in the way. God knows how much I need to be able to get there if I’m called, and He will provide for me, I am certain of that.

        xoxoxo sis.

        • poljunkie

          Hey you, I wasnt trying to damper your mood. I was sooo lucky, my dad was around for 92 years, and as you know both during my childhood and then again when I moved back from college I worked with him daily for many many years.

          We had a lot of time together and it was awesome.

          I hope your parents will be able to come and visit you soon- I KNOW(!!!!) they must miss you terribly.
          You can bring your dad to a Florida driving range and watch him hit balls? How fun would that be for him?

          • I know you weren’t sweet girl! I didn’t mean to make it sound like it. I hope maybe they can too- but the health insurance they’d need for their time down here is crazy expensive too. I know it’s a stupid thought, but one of my fears of going up right now, even if I had the means to, would be not being allowed back in the US after my visit. I don’t have a passport yet- couldn’t ever scrape up the money for it, but the fact that my green card is near due for renewal- I just want to get my citizenship so they’d have to let me back in 😉 I have heard stories of folks not being allowed back in- and that would about kill me. Some day I’ll see them again. And yes, while I never did like playing golf, hitting a bucket of balls at the driving range is fun (good way to smack out frustrations lol!) so that’d be something to do 😀

            • poljunkie

              I know I look amazing at the driving range! Sooo good.

              Oh wow I never even thought of health insurance not having reciprocal benefits – esp in the case of an emergency.

              I know you wont accept a gift…but i’d happily lend you enough for the passport, any time you want or need it. Im serious and I mean it. Who cares when you pay me. Take 5 years. Take 10. Take….

              • I know you would sweet girlfriend. But seriously, I need to get my citizenship first. I appreciate the offer, but seriously, I can’t right now. I’d rather you save that money, and use it to come visit at my swearing in. OH HOW COOL would THAT be?!

                • poljunkie

                  Now that would be cool. How awesome. ⚐
                  I’ll be waiting.

                  Ok. But the offer stands if anything comes up.

                • Thank you pol. You’re sweet. 😀

                • poljunkie

                  Ohhhh. I’ve been meaning to ask you…Do you like Jeff Healey? He was amazing and incredible.

                  While my Guitar Gently Weeps

                  I just realized the other day that he WAS from Canada…which naturally doesnt mean you would automatically like him, but gosh I have loved his music for such a long time, and NO-ONE ever knew who he was. Sadly he passed away in 2008 from cancer.

                  Angel Eyes

                  He was blind, due to cancer at the age of one, and having to have his eyes surgically removed. They were replaced, with artifical lenses. He is one of my all time favorites!

                  …And with Stevie Ray Vaughan. RIP Guys….

                • Uh YEAH! lol. He was Canadian- and he was awesome. One of my favorites and I LOVED it when he and Stevie played together. Amazing talent the both of them. sigh. Gone WAY too soon.

      • PVG

        Me too even after ten years! I was a tomboy and, dad’s fave (though he would never tell) 😉 I too was adopted ABC. My dad used to say adopted babies are very special babies, they are CHOSEN! That makes twice…….Hallelujah!

        • poljunkie

          My brother and sister were adopted and honestly, they were always just what a brother and sister would be. My brother and I are seven years apart. He’s had some difficulties in life with substances… but you know thru it all, we’ve always been close. Growing up, he was amazing…used to ride me everywhere on his bike on his handlebars. We’ve had a lot of fun…he’s great…. My sister is so liberal that she makes Hilary Clinton look conservative. We dont get along because she cant believe I didnt vote for Obama….Since ’08 she’s still not speaking to me!

          I think I was my Grandma’s favorite, but she wouldnt tell either ! 🙂

          Edit: I sent my brother an email, which goes straight to his phone, like a text saying I thought I was Grandmas favorite and he responded: THINK AGAIN. ha

          • Pol, my brother and sister are adopted too- we all came from different families. My brother and I always got along- I remember hanging around him and his friends when they’d let me. He’s how I got to be so cool with music lol. But yes, he too has a substance and alcohol abuse problem and that estranged us more than a few times. We still talk, but it’s not the same. My sister and I never had much to agree on, and she couldn’t stand having her pesky little sister hanging with her and her friends, but she and I get along excellently now. I think absence really does make the heart grow stronger lol- and miles. We’d drive each other batty if we lived close!

        • PVG- my folks told me the same thing 😉 Ever since I read Michael Reagan’s term Twice Adopted, I took that phrase. We adopted kids are blessed arent we!

          • PVG

            AMEN TO THAT!

    I do believe in angels. My bro in law was on a training mission while in the Army and he got out of the foxhole to smoke a cigarette. Right after that a Jeep barrelled into it. Had he still been in it, he’d have been killed. Another time, his parachute didn’t open (he was in 82nd Airborne) and his chute didn’t open….he got caught up in a tree and his life was saved, yet again.

    • white531

      Friend of mine was in the 82nd. He told me a story. A guy jumped one time and his chute didn’t open. Reserve, same thing. Falling like a rock, he fell dead center into another parachute. It was a rough landing, but they both landed safely.

      • tvlgds

        These things happen more often than we hear about.

    • Just when I think I might have the guts to ever try skydiving and I hear a story like that. WOW! T- those are amazing stories and I’m glad he was OK both times!!!

  • tvlgds

    One of my personal experiences when I was maybe 20 – I was cooking a hamburger on a gas stove (yes, in a pan! :D) and a grease splatter hit the flame and flames shot up – they were immediately extinguished as though someone blew it out. (“someone” did!) Scared the crap out of me but I recognized the miracle.

  • white531

    I guess this was the thread of preference for the evening. We don’t always have to talk politics. Actually, politics is only a small part of our existence on this planet.

    Even Obama, in all his self-proclaimed glory, is nothing more than an ant on the sidewalk, in the big picture of History. His ideas will fail, his vision of a new world will fail, and he will die a bitter man. Actually, he was a bitter man, when he was born, so nothing has changed.

    His legacy will be that he was the absolute worst President the nation ever had. Unlike other Presidents, his Presidential library, will gather dust and be forgotten.

    In the History of America, he will be remembered as nothing more than a temporary nightmare.

    I don’t normally like bad dreams, but that is one nightmare I would welcome every evening.

    Here’s a thought. Since we are enjoying such an Evangelical evening, how about this?

    God put Obama here to wake you up. Using Obama, God just slapped you in the face.

    “Wake up, you idiots! Obama is just round one. Obama is just an example of what is coming, if we don’t pay more attention to what our politicians are doing.”

    Point is, this nation is on the wrong path. If we continue on this path, by the time you and I die, there won’t be anything left of the America you and I grew up in, and cherished.

    Your and my children and grandchildren, will live their lives under the New World Order, that so many are trying their best to create. Unless we do all we can to prevent that from happening.

    At this point, that’s our best shot.

    • Whitefriend, well said. I too believe dear leader is who we were given, because so much of society is sick and degenerate, that we were doomed to have such a “leader”. This is why folks who claim that social issues in politics don’t matter are so wrong, in my humble opinion.
      We need a heart change in our nation. I pray we have another chance. I pray we will have time to see a new awakening and revival. But no matter which way things go, God is in control. He wins in the end, and I’m glad to be on His team!! ((()))s

  • 12grace

    Yes, I have had some very close calls in my life and I feel very strongly that G-d intervened and sent Angels to help me.

    Example: I was driving to work in the wee hours of the morning before the sun came up
    when my small car was hit by a mack truck.The ambulance came and I was taken immediately to the ER. I was given an MRI and other tests and overheard Nurses and Doctors looking at me and saying it was a miracle. I didn’t understand what they were talking about until I actually saw my car a few days later. I was discharged from the hospital soon after the accident, with no injuries, but my car was actually crushed like an accordion and totaled. No-one could understand how I got out of that accident alive. And the truck driver was also unscathed.

    I believe that I have been protected more than one time in my life by Angels. And I praise G-d for them!

    • WOW! I’ve seen cars and Macs down here grace and the Mac always wins. You definitely were meant for something, and I’m grateful for it! xoxoxo

      • 12grace

        Thank you so much ABC. You are always so kind. XO and hugs, dear friend!

  • white531

    I am just curious about something. I notice that a few of you are reluctant to type the name, “God.” Why is that? Are you afraid of typing the name, “God?” Or is it some respect I am not aware of?

    • 12grace

      Why Do Some Jews ( and Christians) Spell “God” G-d?

    • It’s for any Jewish friends who might be on whitefriend. We substitute the o for a – or a *. Jewish folks never type out the Name of G*d. 🙂

    • Some long time ago, I had the very same question. Answered by the same folks too if I remember correctly. 🙂 As a Catholic, I thought they were writing “G-D” out of fear of Him and getting His attention. But that apparently was just me. 🙂

  • There are hundreds of documented incidents of angels, miraculous healings and more including some by ATHEIST doctors. Some may be found at

  • white531

    Well, we have had a good evening here, discussing things the Liberals would make fun of.

    I don’t know about you, but I enjoyed it immensely. Let’s do it again, as soon as possible.

    I bid you goodnight. As always, I enjoy your company.

    • Good night whitefriend. Have a Blessed week!!! ((()))s

    • I enjoyed it greatly too white531. Inspirational too. It’s lovely to read such stories and comments about such uplifting and happy events. Especially in this day and age when nearly all the news is bad and dispiriting. I might almost go as far as saying that 911Infidel was inspired to write this as it had such an uplifting affect on most all who read/wrote. But that is up to him to decide. God Bless All Here!

  • BikerHoop

    Allow me to relate a story that happened back in 2006.

    I have a daughter who lives in Vegas. She was graduating from UNLV that year and I decided I was going to ride my motorcycle out for her graduation (I live in Wisconsin). I did some things to the bike and even bought new tires in preparation. Finally the day for departure arrived. I was excited as this would be the longest bike trip I’d ever taken. I left mid-afternoon as my destination for the day was only about five hours away.

    I arrived at the motel and all was well. The next morning as I was watching the weather forecast for the area I’d be riding in I noticed a red area on the map. I turned the volume up to find out that the entire area I was anticipating covering that day was looking for high winds, heavy rain and… tornadoes. Now, I don’t mind riding in the rain and even a little wind, but that forecast was a little more ominous than I cared for.

    After phoning my wife and discussing it with her we decided the best plan was for me to ride home and catch a plane the next day, which I did. When I got back to the city I live in I stopped by a friend’s just to catch him up on what was going on.

    While we were talking he glanced at my bike and noticed something on one of my brand new tires. A spot that looked like something might be wrong with the front tire. On closer examination we found the tread of the tire was separating from the sidewall.

    Had I continued on my ride that day there’s a good chance that tire would have given out while I was riding the interstate at 70MPH.They would have had to pick me up with a stick and a spoon.

    My Ride Angel was definitely working overtime that day. I believe my life was saved because of the weather. And I don’t believe it was coincidental.

  • I found these stories so inspirational that I didn’t want to lose them There will be times in the future when I will need, not want so much as need, to read them again. I thought about printing them out but I don’t have the paper or ink. So I took a chance and saved the page as a complete webpage to my computer and it worked! I now have the original article and (at the time of writing this) 167 beautiful and inspired comments from people’s hearts. I thought I’d share that as some of you might also like to keep a copy of what is probably the most inspirational article and comments you will ever come across.

    Thank you ALL for sharing! God bless you ALL!

    • I’ve done the same Wolfie. 🙂

      • I got the feeling as I was reading the comments… That some day… I was going to need to read them again… That saving them wasn’t just a good idea, but a very important thing to do. I don’t know why, but I could not let this thread go without saving a copy for myself… I bet that’s similar to your reasons. Sometimes… We just know what to do… I can’t explain it.

    • Mary Sieg

      Thanks for the suggestion, Wolfie. God Bless all who read this post of RS. And, thanks RS!

  • Mary Sieg

    I absolutely believe! I have had an angel actually take human form to help me out of a dangerous situation, and then he disappeared. I was in Europe trying to get home and was going to miss my train which would have caused me to miss my flight home. I was dangerously ill and may not have survived if I had to stay another day. My luggage, passport, ticket and money were all put into a locker in the train station at Cologne, Germany. I had an hour to kill till my train left. During the wait, we went across the street to the Cologne Cathedral and prayed. When I went to get my stuff out of the locker, it would not work. the conductor explained to everyone that it was broken and would take 30 minutes to fix. My train was ready to pull out. Out of nowhere a little man appeared and without speaking a word, just helds out his hand. We (hubby and me) handed him our credit card key to the locker and he slipped it in and immediately the “broken” locker opened. No one elses locker would open. We grabbed stuff and literally ran to the train just in time to leave. I looked over my shoulder and said “Danka” which is thank you to the little man who was still standing there. He nodded his head to me, then disappeared. True story. Also…I am a nurse and was the director of a hospice at the time. My mission in hospice was to bring Jesus to the dying – not forced upon them, but in an effort to bring peace and comfort and hope. I hired two wonderful chaplains that visited all our patients and their families. I felt I was doing “Gods work” and actually also felt evil trying to keep me from returning. It was like Satan had hold of my feet, and the angel prevented me from a worse fate. And like it is told, when angels take a physical form to help us, they do not speak. They do what God tells them to and then they leave. Also, this little man was neat as a pin…..all of us other travelers looked disheveled and like we had been traveling for hours. He had no luggage, only himself. He never spoke a word. His eyes were very caring and sad like he knew my struggle. I will never forget it. Also, working with the dying for so many years I have witnessed them seeing angels, hearing music, etc. If you are interested in this, look up the Cologne Cathedral. Miracles have been known to happen there. Right before I left the church, I put my hand on a burial tomb of an Arch Bishop from the the 12th century. I was compelled to do this but didn’t know why. I said a silent prayer…”I don’t know who you are, but I know that I need you to bless me”. Then I left the church to go to the train station. I was blessed. It is real.

  • bobemakk

    I do believe in angels, my wife is one of them.

    • Is she behind you as you type that.. reply “erm” to confirm! 🙂

      I’m just kidding. 🙂

  • lcn1114

    Haven’t posted in awhile, but I feel inspired by your wonderful stories, so here goes…

    When my Mother was dying in a nursing home in 1997, I took my 3 young children to say goodbye to her. My youngest was 2 1/2 years old and looked like a cherub himself with beautiful blond curls. In a room filled with heartbroken family, he suddenly started pointing to the corner of the room near the ceiling and shouted “I see pretty ladies.”

    I like to think they were angels coming to escort our Mother to Heaven. Actually I know they were. Later when planning the funeral, he caught me crying and said “Don’t worry, Mam-Mam is ok.” I asked him how he knew that. He replied, “The ladies told me.”

    • I believe she saw angels! Such innocent children see them! Their soul hasn’t been tempted by the “dark angels” yet… Their soul is pure.. So they see the Angels! I honestly and truly believe that… It’s part of my core of belief!

      God is GOOD… He sends out his Angles… The Bible is FULL of stories of his Angles!

      (takes a deep breath… This is a very very emotional issue for me as it is for you and for all the posters here)….

      God Bless…. And… Welcome BACK to the TRS!

    • Aw, wow!! That’s incredible. Thank you Icn1114~

  • lcn1114

    Thank you wolfie, I really needed to read this today. Been teary eyed throughout.

    • It’s a very personal and emotional thread… I shed a tear or 3 reading the comments… But what they have done for me is restore my faith in God and rekick my beliefs! I posted somewhere below that I saved the original post and all the comments for a time when I will need them… Maybe you might do the same… Might never read them… But then again… you might… You know.

      • lcn1114

        You’re right about these stories being personal, I haven’t talked about it in a long time. I like many people on this site have been very down since the re-election of zero. That’s why I haven’t posted. But I’m getting angry again, so I guess I’m back. 🙂

  • MeanGreenBeret

    This dude was a set aside.Everyone broke the rules to get him home.
    Kind of long but worth the watch.
    Ironically the field medic that day was named.

    You guessed it….Angel

    • This did the impossible. I’m speechless. Thank you Lord Jesus for helping them. And saving them.

      • MeanGreenBeret

        I know a few Angels myself. One has fluffy down feathers and a cute Green hat!

        • *blush* 😀 afternoon’ GreenAngel!

        • However did you find a way to get a word in edgewise here sweetGB! It took me about a half hour to scroll down through all my yapping. 🙂

          • MeanGreenBeret

            A little Angel guided me here. I know, this one is packed full of comments. 911 should be proud. Good topic.

            • 🙂 It was an excellent topic, and I think well needed. Yes, excellent job mr. 911Infidel!

              It’s a special thread when Angels comment. 🙂

    • Hey sweet angel- here’s part 5 just in case you see this before you see your e mail.

  • Mary Sieg

    I notice that there are several veterans who have posted here. Thank you and God Bless you all for your service to our great country. I and many other Christians pray for you every day.

  • 57thunderbird

    Of course I believe in angels.They are servants of the Lord.Gabriel and Michael come to mind.Each has a specific task.Satan and his demons were once angels until they rebelled.
