I have always been fascinated and curious about supernatural things; at times, I confess, this didn’t always point me in the right directions. Angels have always held a special intrigue for me, especially as I delved into the Bible. One of my all time favorite movies is It’s A Wonderful Life, where clumsy angel Clarence earns his wings by helping George Bailey see that his life matters. And who doesn’t shed some tears when Ebenezer Scrooge changes his life when visited by 3 “spirits” one Christmas long ago.
A quick Google search brings up over 300 mentions of angels in the Bible. Reading about them and the appearances they made to our ancestors, you realize they are not chubby little creatures with rosy cheeks and curly blonde hair. They are awesome, fearsome beings created by God Himself before the fall of man. They serve Him, worship Him and when warranted, visit us with messages. The people they appear to aren’t very thrilled. They are usually struck by fear and trembling and bow to the ground.
They also have their counterparts. When Lucifer rebelled, he swept 1/3 of the angels from heaven with him. Now, I am no theologian, so I cannot say for certain what their role is now. They may be demon spirits, they may not. If you have questions on that, ask your pastor or a trusted Biblical scholar. But, there is certainly a fight of good vs evil in this world.
One of the first inspirational fiction novels I read was This Present Darkness, by Frank Peretti. It captured my imaginings, and explained what I felt was a real thing; the spiritual battle that rages around us.
Years later, my own story formed, and Angels Unaware was born. And, today only, March 21st, it’s free on Kindle! I hope you enjoy it!
In this world, we are oblivious to the unseen battle raging around us.
