Here is a guiding rule in all experiences of angels: angels that do not lead us to Jesus as King, Lord, and Savior are not spirits on God’s mission but false spirits. Angels in the Bible lead us to Jesus. Angel experiences that do not draw us to God’s Son must be held either loosely or not at all. Angel experiences may well lead people to think there is more than meets the eye or that there is a ‘hum’ of the divine all about us – but without taking us far enough. Frankly, the vast majority of angel experiences evoke transcendence at the most, but no element of leading a person to Jesus.
