Recognizing Angel Visitants

To many Bible readers, angels are supernatural apparitions, which, in the likeness of men and women, appeared to patriarchs and apostles to bless their experiences. But how one can practically apply Scriptural verses describing angelic visits in working out today's problems is a question.

To the Christian Scientist, these specific Bible passages afford a particularly practical explanation of his communication with Deity. In Science and Health, Mrs. Eddy writes (p. 298), "Angels are not etherealized human beings, evolving animal qualities in their wings; but they are celestial visitants, flying on spiritual, not material, pinions." And on the next page she adds: "With white fingers they point upward to a new and glorified trust, to higher ideals of life and its joys. Angels are God's representatives."
