Real Spiritual Experiences



Some time ago on my lunch break from work I was walking down the side of the road when what looked to be a giant angel appeared in front of me as if to stop me from heading in the direction I was going. He looked like you might see in a picture drawing of the story of David and Goliath the way he was dressed only all in white. Kind of like a very intimidating warrior, only with out a sword. He had no wings that I could see but he was so large at my height of 6ft I only reached to about his knee. Because I could see him there but not with my eyes. I dismissed it as my imagination and continued walking. As I was passing underneath him, (through his legs). I felt as if a firm hand was placed on my shoulder and was shoved down to the ground. The pain I felt in my shoulder was such that I saw stars. I got up collected myself and continued on my way. To this day I do not know why this happened but I do know that the pain I felt was real and the dust I brushed off of my clothes from being shoved to the ground was real too. Who knows what might have happen if I had not been stalled by this Angel or was it an Angel? The pain receded quickly even though at first it felt as if my shoulder had been dislocated at the time. I am 6ft tall and weighed about 220 lbs at the time. When this happened it felt as though it my feel to a small child being pushed straight down. My legs buckled under the tremendous weight. Could this have been a divine intervention of some kind? I mean I read stories of Angels coming to the aid of a person but there is usually some known reason.

angels abound, they are here to guide us and protect us. It's up to us if we will heed them or not. I had instances where an angel did save me.

I sometimes wonder if angels come in many forms and don't always be seen to have wings... I have had a young couple stop and rescue me on a pitch black night on a 3 miles dark road without any lights after my car packed in for a bit... Funny enough I held onto my cross while sitting in the car in the dark praying for guidance as to what I was going to do next when they came along and all I could feel was calm and I knew I was going to be alright. Which I was the young chap got me back on the road in no time while his lovely companion chatted away and made me feel at ease... Like to believe they were angels:)

Did you detect or see any possible danger round about you when it happened or afterwards that would explain as to why you were stopped in your tracks in such a way. I have been bodily thrown off a couch when I was sleeping by an unseen, strong force which alerted me to a possible fire that could have started in my house...

It is not true that all angels have wings. The one that came to anounce the coming of Solomon did not have ant defference from a human being.

I guess you people were responding to another story.

Brotheran be carefull about one thing we are not allowed to pray in anything accept Jesus Christ not even in Angels. How can a person who is in more position pray to the one who is in a little position, I am not saying this out of pride but if you spent a little time with your bible you will know what is a person and yes in the kingdom of God we are in the greater position than Angels.

10 minutes later you could have gotten hit by a car. I bet he kept you two steps back by knocking you down. He probably wants to make it very clear that he is there to protect you, and to keep you on the right path of God.

Sounds like you got seriously hurt. You should probably get yourself checked for any concussions. As for the vision, angels usually have wings to signify that they're angels. Giants, however, are mentioned in the book of Genesis as the offspring of fallen angels with humans. Could it be that you saw the spirit of a giant? I'm not sure, but you definitely should do something about this event.

I believe that out of the few obvious things (big disaters) we are saved from. There are probably several thousand minor incidences that we are saved from too. I'm not saying the minor ones would not have major consequences. Dead is dead you know. It's just easier for us as humans to accept if the Rescue comes during a large and obvious event.
