Blog 129

You might also want to look at the widely read blog on the MIDDLE EAST from Robert L. Wise, Ph.D. which features weekly updates on little known facts about Israel, Egypt, Jordan, Iraq, Lebanon and Syria, countries where he has traveled and worked.


Scripture is filled with stories of angels guiding people. For example, an angel appeared to Joseph in a dream and warned him to take the baby Jesus and Mary and flee to Egypt. Shortly thereafter, Herod ordered all the boy babies in Bethlehem killed. (Matthew 2:13-16) In the book of Acts, we find the story of Peter sleeping in jail when an angel appeared and light filled his cell. The angel took him passed the guards and out of the city. Peter thought he was seeing a vision. (Acts 12:6-11).

In contemporary times, a new interest has flourished in understanding angels and how they can help us. Some time ago, I described the ministry of Leslie Draper and her ministry with angels as she offers guidance to persons with needs. Judith McNutt has written books about her encounters with angels and the directions she received. Her books contain important insights.

Another blog I wrote several years ago related the experience of one of our friends. Barbara Yates is a member of the church my wife pastors. She awoke one night to find two very large figures standing by her bed. The angels gave her a message that offered reassurance and Barbara found new peace of mind.

A similar experience happened to a friend in Platte Canyon Community Church. Tom Ahl has been a member there for a number of years. He grew up in a Christian family and considered himself to be a Christian. However, he shared with me that he really didn’t live a Christian life. During this time, his brother was killed on Highway 285. Of course, this had a profound impact on his life.

One night shortly after this experience, he had an extremely vivid dream.

Against a deep, dark black ground, he saw four giant columns. In the center was a person dressed in black with an urn without any money. As Tom came closer, he realized the man was his brother. Tom was scared to death by what he was seeing.

Suddenly, a voice echoed through his dream and said, “You will be judged.”

When Tom awoke, he knew that he had been confronted with a divine intervention. The dream was more than a nightly revelry. His entire lifestyle had been called into question. Tom instantly knew that change was demanded. He had to make adjustments.

Tom gave up the way he had been living, He came back to the church and has lived what he knows is righteous ever since. Whether the figure was his brother or an angel, the appearance changed his entire life. He shared with me that he remains grateful for that dream experience.

When you’re sleeping … keep your eyes open.
