Bible Q&A: Are There Angels Among Us?

Are there angels among us?

Angels are said to be “ministering spirits sent out to serve for the sake of those who are to inherit salvation” (Heb. 1:14).  The beggar Lazarus’s soul “was carried by the angels to Abraham’s side” after his death (Luke 16:22; cf. 23:43), thus indicating that angels might do the same with the souls of departed saints today.  Christians are also told to “not neglect to show hospitality to strangers, for thereby some have entertained angels unawares” (Heb. 13:2).

Thus, it is very likely angels are among us in some fashion.  However, we should take note that the Bible very noticeably avoids giving specific details about when and how they interact with us (cf. Eph. 4:15; John 17:17).
