A guardian angel according to wikipedia definition is an angel assigned to protect and guide a particular person or group. Many believe that these supernatural beings watch over us and can also come to our spiritual – and even physical aid – in times of great need. Other religious organization believe that Guardian angels serve to protect whichever person God assigns them to, and present prayer to God on that person’s behalf.
Like Christians, Angels are also servants of the Lord who followed God’s word written on the Scripture.
Rev 22:8 And I John saw these things, and heard them. And when I had heard and seen, I fell down to worship before the feet of the angel who showed me these things.
Rev 22:9 Then saith he to me, See thou do it not: for I am thy fellow-servant, and of thy brethren the prophets, and of them who keep the sayings of this book: worship God.
Guardian Angels are thought to be spiritual beings that are “assigned” to assist people here on Earth in various ways.
Ps 34:7 The angel of the LORD encampeth around them that fear him, and delivereth them.
I was made to believe since my childhood that I have at least one angel protecting me from harm. The question now is, how many Angels do one person really have?
Rev 1:20 The mystery of the seven stars which thou sawest in my right hand, and the seven golden candlesticks. The seven stars are the angels of the seven churches: and the seven candlesticks which thou sawest are the seven churches.
By reading between the lines, if the seven stars are the angels of the seven churches understandably there is only one angel assigned per one church as proven by the following verses:
Rev 2:1 To the angel of the church of Ephesus write; These things saith he that holdeth the seven stars in his right hand, who walketh in the midst of the seven golden candlesticks;
Rev 2:8 And to the angel of the church in Smyrna, write; These things saith the first and the last, who was dead, and is alive;
Rev 2:12 And to the angel of the church in Pergamos write; These things saith he who hath the sharp sword with two edges;
Rev 2:18 And to the angel of the church in Thyatira write; These things saith the Son of God, who hath his eyes like a flame of fire, and his feet are like fine brass;
Rev 3:1 And to the angel of the church in Sardis write; These things saith he that hath the seven Spirits of God, and the seven stars; I know thy works, that thou hast a name, that thou livest, and art dead.
Rev 3:7 And to the angel of the church in Philadelphia write; These things saith he that is holy, he that is true, he that hath the key of David, he that openeth, and no man shutteth; and shutteth, and no man openeth:
Rev 3:14 And to the angel of the church of the Laodiceans write; These things saith the Amen, the faithful and true witness, the beginning of the creation of God;
Seven angels of the seven churches and only one angel of the Lord freed the Apostles who was put in prison by the high priest and sect of the Sadducees.
Acts 5:19 But the angel of the Lord by night opened the prison-doors, and brought them forth, and said,
Acts 5:20 Go, stand and speak in the temple to the people all the words of this life.
Truly, one angel does it all though Jesus said, God can send more than twelve legions of angels to protect Him.
Mt 26:53 Thinkest thou that I cannot now pray to my Father, and he will presently give me more than twelve legions of angels?
Legion refers to the basic military unit of the army. Legions varied greatly over time but they were typically composed of perhaps 6,000 soldiers. Also a name referring to a number of demons found inside the body of a man with unclean spirit.
Lk 8:30 And Jesus asked him, saying, What is thy name? And he said, Legion: because many demons had entered into him.
And to leave their (the Angels) assignment without permission is punishable under God.
Jud 1:6 And the angels who kept not their first state, but left their own habitation, he hath reserved in everlasting chains under darkness to the judgment of the great day.
Powerful as they are, them not protecting us, we shall judge them sooner or later.
1 Cor 6:3 Know ye not that we shall judge angels? how much more, things that pertain to this life?
