It all began with the appearance of the boundary between good and evil, when people began to believe in the confrontation of two opposing forces – the forces of light and the forces of darkness, good and evil. Angels, as messengers of God, seek to help people, while demons try to put them on a sinful path. But what is really behind these mysterious beings?
The history of angels and demons goes back thousands of years. In the beginning, all angels were created by God and worshiped only Him. However, one of the angels, Lucifer, thought himself equal to God and rebelled against Him. As a result, Lucifer and his followers were cast out of paradise and turned into demons. Since then, Lucifer has been known as Satan or the Devil.
Angels, created by God before man existed, are disembodied spirits, but they have the ability to take form and visit the earth. They are responsible for order in the universe and control the elements such as water, fire, and wind.
However, angels cannot intervene in people’s lives on their own and act only by permission of God. They can give advice and help, but the final decision always rests with the individual. It is believed that every person has a guardian angel who can come to the rescue in times of need.
There are many testimonies of people who claim to have met angels. For example, Hope Price, the wife of an English minister, has received over 1500 letters from people telling of their encounters with angels. One of these was the rescue of a six-year-old girl, Hillary, who was saved by a “shining” dark-haired man who disappeared immediately afterward.
Another story tells of Kate Bridger, who in 1991 was on a bus when its brakes failed. The bus could have crashed into a wall, but it was saved by angels in long robes that only Kate noticed. Similar cases have been observed in space, when astronauts saw huge human figures outside the porthole.
Angels have their own hierarchy of nine ranks. They differ in both specialization and appearance. For example, the angels of the highest hierarchy, the seraphim, have six wings, and the angels of lower rank, the cherubim, have four wings. Satan was also a cherub.
The subject of angels and demons is an interesting topic not only for believers but also for scientists. Many researchers are trying to find a scientific explanation for the phenomena associated with angels. However, they are still a mystery and many encounters with them remain unresolved.
