Five Encounters with Guardian Angels
No evil shall be allowed to befall you,
no plague come near your tent.
For he will command his angels concerning you
to guard you in all your ways. – Psalm 91:11-12
Scripture is filled with God’s messengers coming to Earth – from the angel placed at the entrance to Eden all the way through the apocalyptic vision of John. We read about these beings intervening in human affairs, both protecting and disciplining. We don’t hear a lot of that today, and it’s easy to wonder when or if angels are commissioned. These stories and videos provide testament of people’s experiences. Read on for five encounters with divine guardians!
Angels Rescue a Mechanic from Under Semi-Truck
When Bruce van Natta counts his blessings, he’s not quite sure where to begin. A diesel rig mechanic, Bruce was working on a lifted semi-truck when the jacks strained under the weight. The improperly mounted truck slipped off and Bruce was pinned beneath over 15,000 pounds of steel. As his coworkers rushed to save him, Bruce was at complete peace. Why? The guardian angels he saw lifting the truck off his chest were surely there to comfort him.
