Angels are told to be God's messengers and helpers to believers. I've heard of many stories where angels have been sent by God to help people even today. One time in youth group we asked God to help us see or feel them, and many did, after a few went to the church sanctuary they said they were seeing colors and lights flash around, I went in, but it was just dark, then God told me to look in a direction and when I did, for a glimpse I saw an (I think purple and green... it was a long time ago) orb with a tail fly by :) All that aside, cool as it was, angels are meant to turn our focus to God and believing in Him and all that He has done and will do, and has called us to do. Jesus bless you all this Christmas.
