We shouldn’t be surprised when we see Angels

We shouldn't be surprised when we see Angels

I heard something rather interesting yesterday, a first for me, when I attended a funeral service of a friend of the family. My dad (e.g. Pastor Lars Wilhelmsson) was asked to officiate and preach at the service and, after the funeral, when I spoke with a pastor’s wife who was also a friend of our kind friend, Carol, who was welcomed into heaven, she shared that she saw two angels behind my dad when he was preaching—one on his right and one on his left and a white glow. I shared this with the rest of the family and thought it was such an interesting, meaningful and comforting thing to share.
I asked the pastor’s wife (who was from another church and was visiting Hillside Church with her husband who is also a pastor), if she could share this also with dad, which she did, and he responded that maybe we shouldn’t be too surprised when we see angels given that Scripture is clear about the ever-present role of angels: “Be not forgetful to entertain strangers; for thereby some have entertained angels unawares” (Hebrews 13:1-2). Nonetheless, I was rather surprised (though maybe I shouldn’t be) and hugged the pastor’s wife to thank her for sharing this with me.
Dad had a point: Should we be surprised when we hear stories about angels or actually see them as this pastor’s wife did since Scripture is clear about the role of angels?
Sincerely, M Lynn
