Q&A with Dr. Jack Graham
As a pastor, I’m passionate about preparing believers to confront the issues in our world with bold faith. That’s why when I received these two questions from listeners, I know I wanted to share them with you.
I pray they’re an encouragement to you in focusing on Jesus and standing firm in His Word.
Q: Dr. Graham, what kind of power do angels possess?
A: Scripture tells us that angels have unparalleled power. They can close the mouths of lions (Daniel 6), roll back massive stones (Matthew 28), and open prison doors (Acts 5). It’s clear that angels are empowered in ways superheroes can only dream about.
But there is a limit to their power. There is at least one critical thing angels cannot do, which is to witness to the saving grace of Jesus in their own lives. Angels can only admire what God has done in giving us eternal life—you and I are the ones called to proclaim it to the world!
Q: Is there such a thing as guardian angels?
A: The fact that we are divinely protected as believers is indisputable, and the Bible shows that there are three truths we can be sure of—the ABCs of divine protection, you might say. For those who are in Christ, angelic protection is available, beneficial, and constant.
As the Psalmist says, “For [God] will command his angels concerning you, to guard you in all your ways. On their hands they will bear you up.” (Psalm 91:11–12).
So, do you have a guardian angel? Even better! You have an entire army of them, ever-present and ready to serve.
