One of the many ways God talks to us
Angel Assistance is a gift our Father in Heaven provides for his children on this earth. In fact, the word angel means “messenger” or “agent”. Helping Angels are God’s agents who provided protection, give us direction, deliver messages, and serve us in very personal ways according to our righteous desires and needs.
Protection: Psalm 91: 11 – “For He shall give His angels charge over thee, to keep thee in all thy ways”. For example, an angel was sent to Daniel in the lions’ den to shut the mouths of the lions. Daniel 6:11-14.
Direction: Exodus 23:20 – When the children of Israel left Egypt the Lord said, “Behold, I send an Angel before thee, to keep thee in the way, and to bring thee into the place which I have prepared.
Messages: In Genesis 18, God sent messengers to Abraham and Sarah to tell them she would bear a son. Gabriel was sent to Mary to tell her that she would give birth to the Son of God. One of our daughters was visited by our grandson telling her he wanted to be born. Angels speak the words of Christ to us, and as we ask, they will tell us “all things what you should do.” (2 Nephi 32:3)
In 1823 an angel appeared to Joseph Smith and directed him to a hill near his home in upstate New York. Buried in this hill were records of past civilizations that had inhabited this land; the resurrected Savior of the world visited them, and taught them how to have an ideal society.
Joseph was given the means to translate these, which contained the fullness of the gospel and is a second witness that Jesus is the Christ, as well as being a witness to the truth of the Bible. Both are preparing us for the Lord’s Second Coming. Now it is in 111 languages, and it was brought forth with angelic assistance in a miraculous way. Many different religions are now using it along with the Bible in their religious worship; it was prophesied by Isaiah 29:4-12, “as the vision of all is come unto you as the words of a book… shalt speak out of the ground,…” “And the book is delivered to him that is not learned,…”
No Respecter of Persons
Because of God’s infinite love for each of us, He provides angel assistance for each of us as well. The Lord is no respecter of persons as his helping angels reach out to all his children every day. You may not hear a voice calling your name but feel guided by an inner feeling or instinct. Often their approach is adapted to our own personalities in a way that we can understand the direction or message in a loving way.
An Amazing Example of Angel Assistance
Srinivasa Ramanujan (Ra-ma-nu’-dzen) from Madras, India, was a deeply religious Hindu who credited his world-renown mathematical capacities to divinity – revealed to him by a family goddess [angelic assistance]. “An equation for me has no meaning,” he once said, “unless it expresses a thought of God.”
Having been taught by an angel, Ramanujan is considered the most unique and brilliant mathematician to ever live. Living only 32 years (1887-1920) his accomplishments are both inspiring and enormous. He is the first Indian to be elected a Fellow of Trinity College, Cambridge and one of the youngest fellows in the Royal Society. The value of his work is still being uncovered a hundred years later.
Mathematics is one of the pieces of the harmony we see in the universe. A wonderful movie has been made regarding Ramanujan’s life, (The Man who Knew Infinity). I love it because it shows a great example how all things testify of God – mathematics included. Our dear friends, Blaine and Carolyn Wood, told us of this amazing movie.
Isaac Newton Received Angel Assistance
Newton is considered to be the greatest scientist to have ever lived. As I explain in my book, most do not know that Newton spent more time in the Bible than doing science as is documented in his personal writings.
Alexander Pope wrote the following:
Nature and Nature’s laws
lay hid in night;
God said, Let Newton be!
and all was light.
Newton’s The Principia contains more original research than any book ever written. It was this book that led John Harrison to discover how to make the first sea-worthy chronometer in order to determine “Longitude.” (See the movie or read the book by this title) That discovery changed the world as well, and angel assistance was in it, as it was with Newton.
The Greatest Natural Scientist of the 1800s
Louis Agassiz (1807-1873) said, “It is the job of prophets and scientists alike to proclaim the glories of God.” He was greatly respected by his contemporary, Charles Darwin. In fact, Darwin shared his feelings with the poet, Henry Wadsworth Longfellow, “What a set of men you have at Harvard! Both our universities put together cannot furnish the like. Why, there is Agassiz — he counts for three.”
Agassiz knew the God of the Universe and believed in angelic assistance. One time he had the impression that there was a certain fossil that he was looking for in a rock he had found. He had a dream showing him the fossil inside. He chipped away the rock and found exactly what he had seen in his dream.
Listen to our Better Angels
As Abraham Lincoln profoundly said, “Listen to our better angels!” They are given by God to help us fulfill our life’s missions, and to learn to live the law of love of God with all our hearts, souls, minds, and strength, and to love all mankind as well, which if we were to do, it would solve all the world’s problems.
Before we were born, we chose Christ in our premortal existence where we knew Heavenly Father’s plan of happiness. We rejoiced with our opportunity to come to earth and gain a body and life’s experiences. Now by faith in this second estate on earth we get to choose Christ again as the way back to Father, to perfection, and fullness of joy and a glorious resurrected body. His helping angels in the Kingdom of Heaven are perfectly organized to help us on our path. They helped us prepare there, and they are helping us here.
Even though each of our missions is different, in the wisdom of God, if we will listen to “our better angels,” they will contribute to the oneness of the whole as we use our time and talents to serve to help bring about that oneness.
A Life Changing Experience for Me
The angel assistance back in 1965, when I was working on my master’s thesis, made an enormous difference in my life. No one had a clue where that thesis would go at that time, but the Lord knew. https://itsabouttimebook.com/in-the-news/ (In 2016 the IEEE celebrated the 50th anniversary of the publication of my thesis, which became an international standard for characterizing atomic clocks. They published a special issue with 15 papers citing the diverse and important uses that have arisen over this half century by what the world has come to call the Allan variance. (IEEE Xplore Digital Library: May 10, 2016))
Because I was willing to do things the Lord’s way rather than my way that made all the difference. He knew I would use it to bring about good and to share the gospel around the world. I am thankful to be on his errand and to have his angelic assistance in my life.
Traditional Science Excludes God and Angel Assistance
Einstein said, “There are only two ways to live your life: One is as though nothing is a miracle. The other is as if everything is. I believe in the latter.” And from David Bohm, “The great strength of science is that it is rooted in actual experience. The great weakness of contemporary science is that it admits only certain types of experience as legitimate.”
In this same spirit, in January 2013 my son, Nathan, and I heard talks at the Electric Universe Conference in Albuquerque, New Mexico, were titled The Tipping Point. During the conference both Dr. Dean Radin and Dr. Rupert Sheldrake shared some exciting results showing the mind is not constrained to the brain. Radin not only shared solid data showing that ESP works — using a Faraday cage to try to block any electromagnetic signal — but that it also had no-time-delay using a global set of folks to participate and find that result. As I listened to his talk, I predicted the no-time-delay result from our UFT work, as explained in Chapter 21 of my book, It’s About Time, and on our other web site.
Sheldrake received a standing ovation at the Albuquerque conference and was invited to give a talk on TEDx. The TEDx talk was later pulled from being viewed because of complaints from a few scientists — confirmed atheists. It was an excellent talk, and thanks to you tube you can watch it anyway.
Sheldrake joined with Matthew Fox to write the fascinating book: The Physics of Angels: Exploring the Realm Where Science and Spirit Meet. Reminds one of my book with the subtitle: Harmonizing Science and Religion.
Satan’s Angels Organized to Defeat Good
Satan’s angels are organized against all that is good, and as it says in Revelations Chapter 11, a third-part were cast down to the earth. That means that there are twice as many of the Lord’s angels to assist us on our path back home to Father than those minions of the devil. As Elisha told the young man, “Fear not: for they that be with us (the hosts of heaven) are more than they that be with them (the enemies).” (2 Kings 6:15-17) The Lord promises the righteous need not fear. “But perfect love casteth out [all] fear…” (1 John 4:18; Moroni 8:16)
Expect Helping Angels
As mentioned, in the Savior’s great High Priest’s prayer (John Chapter 17), He prayed that we may be one as He and the Father are one. The early Christians over the second to third centuries practiced this oneness and harmonized their time and talents to share the glad tidings of the gospel around the world and the glorious message of the resurrected Lord.
We should expect angel assistance in our lives, giving us protection, direction and messages that are unique to us personally. Helping Angels are lovingly there for us and want to help. In the challenging times ahead the inspiring story of Immaculée Ilibagiza as she survived the Rwandan holocaust lifts our souls closer to God and His angels.
It is exciting that we live in the days preparing for the glorious return of our Lord and Savior. One of the great events leading up to the Second Coming is the preparation of the Bride to meet the Bridegroom – the ideal society who are listening to their “better angels” to assist in this great work of bringing about Zion – the pure in heart, who are of one heart and mind.
