I have been able to see angels and unfortunately the demonic since I was a little girl – which is ironic because I didn’t know God until my mid-twenties, but as I child, I would call the angels “fairies” because that was the only description I could use at the time.
Growing up I witnessed spiritual warfare. I would witness battles between the angels and demonic in the sky, and my teachers would write on my school reports about “Rebecca-land,” because I would literally watch the sky.
When the demonic would come and try to scare me at night, I would scream out and my Mum would come running into my bedroom and tell me to “think about my fairies at the bottom of the garden.”
There are some people who still struggle with the concept of the spiritual realm, there are some who love the angels, and even unbelievers who worship the demonic, but whatever your stance, the Bible is clear on the spiritual, God Himself, and His angels.
Since becoming a Christian, I have gone back through my childhood with God and He has unpacked what happened to bring understanding and clarity, but I have learnt that angels have a rightful place.
Generally, when I see the angelic, it’s always in three circumstances…
- They are protecting the worship of God’s church
- They are engaging in worship with the church
- They are in warfare
Over the years I have realised that if I can see God’s creation, that is the world, and even the angels – which some are indescribably beautiful – how much more will Jesus and even God be when we are with them in Heaven!
If an angel told John in Revelation 22:8-9 to not worship them, then we shouldn’t either, because they are servants of God, simply here to help us reach our final destination
