A Guardian Angel (Art by ChristopherPollari)

Angels have been guarding over humanity, protecting their nations and families from demonic harms since ancient times. They have been called many things and many names, from daemons to spirits to even more sinister terms. Regardless, they are still there, watching over you for protection against evil, even when the greatest evil there is you.

Guardian Angel is an angel that is assigned to protect and guide a particular person, group, kingdom, or country, usually under the command of God.

Overview

They are guardian angels for every person, group and country an are only done in the by the lowest and weakest angels unless they are important enough for stronger angels with the highest being a True Archangel. In the New Testament the concept of guardian angel may be noted. Angels are everywhere the intermediaries between God and man; and Jesus Christ set a seal upon the Old Testament 

The belief in guardian angels can be traced throughout all antiquity. The concept of angels that guard over particular people and nationalities played a common role in Ancient Judaism, while a theory of tutelary angels and their hierarchy was extensively research in the 5th century by Pseudo-Dionysius the Areopagite. There is a similar Islamic belief in the Mu'aqqibat. According to many Muslims, each person has two guardian angels, in front of and behind him, while the two recorders are located to the right and left.

Description

The theology of angels and tutelary spirits has undergone many refinements since the 5th century. Belief in both the East and the West is that guardian angels serve to protect whichever person God assigns them to and present prayer to God on that person's behalf. Chabad believes that people might indeed have guardian angels. For Chabad, God watches over people and makes decisions directly with their prayers and it is in this context that the guardian angels are sent back and forth as emissaries to aid in this task. Thus, they are not prayed to directly, but the angels are part of the workings of how the prayer and response comes about.

Other examples in the New Testament are the angel who succoured Christ in the garden, and the angel who delivered Saint Peter from prison. After Peter had been escorted out of prison by an angel, he went to the home of "Mary the mother of John, also called Mark". The servant girl, Rhoda, recognized his voice and ran back to tell the group that Peter was there. However, the group replied: "It must be his angel". In this view, the function of the guardian angel is to lead people to the Kingdom of Heaven.

Quotes

I'm just doing my job, y'know? Guarding over you and your family? That's basically the entire idea behind being a guardian angel!
Gabriel.
Dear Child, Sometimes on your travel through hell, you meet people that think they are in heaven because of their cleverness and ability to get away with things. Travel past them because they don't understand who they have become and never will. These type of people feel justified in revenge and will never learn mercy or forgiveness because they live by comparison. They are the people that don't care about anyone, other than who is making them feel confident. They don’t understand that their deity is not rejoicing with them because of their actions, rather he is trying to free them from their insecurities, by softening their heart. They rather put out your light than find their own. They don't have the ability to see beyond the false sense of happiness they get from destroying others. You know what happiness is and it isn’t this. Don’t see their success as their deliverance. It is a mask of vindication which has no audience, other than their own kind. They have joined countless others that call themselves “survivors”. They believe that they are entitled to win because life didn’t go as planned for them. You are not like them. You were not meant to stay in hell and follow their belief system. You were bound for greatness. You were born to help them by leading. Rise up and be the light home. You were given the gift to see the truth. They will have an army of people that are like them and you are going to feel alone. However, your family in heaven stands beside you now. They are your strength and as countless as the stars. It is time to let go! Love, Your Guardian Angel.
