The article, “Angels- God’s Spirit Messengers” published in the Watchtower Magazine issue of January 15, 1961, page 56, read: “And then there are the great body of angels or spirit messengers. We are not to think of these merely as errand boys but as agents and deputies, not only serving as a means of communication but also carrying out God’s purpose, be it the protection and deliverance of his people or the destruction of the wicked.”
Do you know the name of the chief of the rebels against Jehovah God? His name is Beelzebub, Satan the Devil, as could be read in Matthew 12:24, “At hearing this, the Pharisees said: ‘This fellow does not expel the demons except by means of Beelzebub, the ruler of the demons.’
Do you know the angels were keenly interested in what is going on upon the earth, for they are said to rejoice at the repentance of a sinner and to watch the “theatrical spectacle” furnished by Christians? The 1st Peter 1:12, reads: “It was revealed to them that they were ministering, not to themselves, but to you, regarding what has now been announced to you by those who declared the good news to you with holy spirit sent from heaven. Into these very things, angels are desiring to peer.”
Therefore, the angels are watching every one of us if we repent of our sins. The most comforting thought is written in Hebrews 1:14, “Are they not all spirits for public service, sent forth to minister for those who are going to inherit salvation?”
We must consider that not necessarily each one of us has an angel assigned to watch; but that one angel is assigned to several numbers of God’s servants on earth, as Jesus Christ while on earth stated in Matthew 18:10, “Do not despise one of these little ones, for I tell you that their angels in heaven always have access to my Father who is in heaven.”
History tells us what happened to the Assyrians written in 2 Kings 19:35, “On that very night the angel of Jehovah went out and struck down 185,000 men in the camp of the Assyrians. When people rose up early in the morning, they saw all the dead bodies.”
One angel killed 185,000 men in the camp of the Assyrians. We may not have a personal angel guiding or protecting us because they are likewise powerful that flying in midheaven could see Jehovah’s people.
As explained by the Watchtower magazine: “Yes, ‘the angel of Jehovah is encamping all around those fearing him and he rescues them.’ (Psalm 34:7; 91:11) ‘He will give his own angels a command concerning you, to guard you in all your ways.” (Acts 5:19; 12:7; 27:23) True, angels do not appear visibly the way they did to the apostles to deliver them from prison and the way one appeared to Paul when he was shipwrecked. But we may rest assured that, regardless of the odds against us, regardless of how many foes press in upon us, had we a spiritual vision we could see surrounding and protecting armies of God’s spirit messengers, even as they protectingly surrounded the prophet Elisha and his servant when the king of Syria dispatched a heavy military force, including horses and war chariots, to capture Elisha. (2 Kings 6:13-17)”
The Watchtower article concluded: “Truly, what God’s Word has to say about his spirit messengers, the angels, is both enlightening and faith-strengthening.” So, the angels I believe will blind the hired killer until he realized he will not be doing good for his family following the order of the mastermind. I pray for both of them to think seventy-seven times, less their fate be like the killers and mastermind of the death of Governor Degamo.
Do not misinterpret that I want to die. No sane person wants to die like the would-be killer and the mastermind, both are also afraid to die. Even the so-called bravest person on earth would not want to die.
