What Is the Purpose of ‘Protection’ Angels?

As a “seer in the spirit” from a very young age, Blake Healy says that, although he had the ability to do so, he didn’t feel a natural compulsion to interact with angels.

As he grew older and got more involved in the ministry, Healy began engaging more and more with angels in the spirit realm. And, as he became more knowledgeable about them, some people began to pepper him with questions about “guardian” angels, who they are assigned to and what exactly they are tasked to do.

In his first book, “The Veil,” Healy, the director of the Bethel Atlanta School of Supernatural Ministry, revealed the different kinds of angels he has seen over the years. Those include what he calls “protection” angels.

Healy notes that many of these angelic beings “stand near the front door of people’s homes (or churches), looking far off into the distance, with their main mission being to offer a 24/7 security presence for the human who are present inside that particular dwelling place.”

Healy has seen all types of angels since he was a child. He’s seen worship angels, whom he says take a great amount of time to prepare a room where a church or worship meeting will be held, or simply a gathering of believers. These angels are often seen floating above the room with bowls in their hands that hold different colored liquids symbolizing different properties of blessing that God would like to bestow upon those people who choose to come to that gathering.

Activation angels, he says, seem to activate some kind of major power from God. And then there are “deep heaven” angels. One once appeared to Healy and presented God’s plan in the form of a scroll as it pertained to Blake’s life. The angel showed him that God allows human free will and is still in control of everything.

But protection angels, Healy says, are much more than guardians. They are more like personal attendants who are constantly assisting and loving the person they are assigned to. They actively demonstrate love to their person through their entire life (including conception).

Healy says that these angels are symbolic of the all-encompassing protection of God.

“This angel is more like a resourceful personal assistant,” he says. “I have never met anyone with more than one, and I’ve never met anyone without one. Personal angels sometimes resemble the person they are matched with—for example, a blonde girl matched with a blonde female angel who resembles her. They serve as a representation of God’s love and help for that person throughout their life.”

They have many tasks, Healy says, for the person they have been assigned to. But these tasks are not the main reason for their existence.

“Personal angels do a lot of things for us. They pray for us, guard us and support us—but these are not their purpose. Personal angels exist because God wanted every person on this planet to have someone whose sole purpose is to love them well. Everything they do is an expression of this.”

Healy wants every believer to know reality of these “protection” angels, and to be comforted by the fact that, even if you are unaware of their presence, they are always available to help.
