This 12-year-old boy encountered angels and heard the voice of God during a near death experience! Josiah believes that the angels are sent to save him from that tragic accident who almost took his life away. He believes that he heard the voice of God and that saved him.
In the Bible, it is indicated that angels appeared from the beginning, in the book of Genesis, to the end, in the book of Revelations. Angels, as we can see in the Bible, usually appear in person or on dreams to deliver the message of God for a particular person. Angels were real as indicated in the Bible. As kids, we grew up having this concept of guardian angels guarding us. But many, nowadays, do not believe in their existence. Many are skeptic in the existence of these heavenly creatures, but Josiah’s story is a very powerful testimony that such heavenly creatures does exist.
Josiah’s story is an amazing reminder that God sees everything that we are going through. In times of troubles we can always have faith that God don’t just see us but he is actually there with us, commanding his army of angels to protect us and guide us.
”The angel of the Lord encamps around those who fear Him, and He delivers them.”— Psalm 34:7
”For it is written, ‘He will command His angels concerning you to guard you carefully.’”— Luke 4:10
The bottom line of Josiah’s story is not that he saw or was saved by the angels. It was amazing! Yes. But the bottom line of this story is that he encountered God in, I guess, so far the most tragic situation in his life. God assured him that everything will be alright because He is God and that he can send even an army of angels just to save him in whatever situation. This encounter didn’t just saved Josiah, but it changes him. His life was never the same again after that encounter. Josiah now became an angel to those who experience the amazing power of God through him!
