The question of whether it’s possible to contact one’s guardian angel and the biblical perspective on communication with the spirit world is a topic that is addressed in the Bible. While some individuals believe in the existence of guardian angels and seek to establish a connection with them, others heed the biblical warnings against engaging in spiritual practices that involve communication with the spirit world. In this exploration, we’ll delve into the biblical perspective on communication with the spirit world, the concept of guardian angels, and considerations for believers seeking guidance and protection.

Biblical Warnings Against Spiritism:

Not all angels are good for there are angels that have fallen away from God these are called demons which are led by Satan their leader. These demons can masquerade as good angels to deceive people. The Bible says, “And no wonder! For Satan himself transforms himself into an angel of light” (2 Corinthians 11:14).

The Bible contains several warnings against engaging in practices associated with spiritism, divination, and communication with the dead. Deuteronomy 18:10-12 (NKJV) explicitly forbids these practices:

“There shall not be found among you anyone who… practices witchcraft, or a soothsayer, or one who interprets omens, or a sorcerer, or one who conjures spells, or a medium, or a spiritist, or one who calls up the dead. For all who do these things are an abomination to the Lord…”

These verses emphasize God’s prohibition against seeking guidance or insight from occult sources outside of His authority. The practice of contacting spirits or seeking guidance from supernatural beings other than God is considered a violation of divine commandments and can lead to spiritual deception and bondage.

God forbade us from seeking the council of mediums that contact the spirit world because of fallen angels that can impersonate dead family members, saints or even prophets. Thus, they can deceive people and leading them away from God’s truths. Examine the following passages:

“Regard not them that have familiar spirits, neither seek after wizards, to be defiled by them: I am the LORD your God” (Leviticus 19:31).

“And the person who turns to mediums and familiar spirits, to prostitute himself with them, I will set My face against that person and cut him off from his people” (Leviticus 20:6, NKJV).

“There shall not be found among you anyone who makes his son or his daughter pass[a] through the fire, or one who practices witchcraft, or a soothsayer, or one who interprets omens, or a sorcerer” (Deuteronomy 18:10, NKJV).

Angelic Encounters in Scripture

While the Bible contains accounts of angelic encounters and interactions with humans, these encounters are typically initiated by the angels themselves or by God for specific purposes, such as delivering messages, providing guidance, or offering protection. In these instances, the angels serve as messengers of God’s will and authority, rather than as objects of human manipulation or control.

Guardian Angels in Scripture

The concept of guardian angels, though not explicitly mentioned in Scripture, is rooted in biblical themes of divine protection and care for believers. Psalm 91:11-12 (NKJV) speaks of God’s promise to send His angels to guard and protect His people:

“For He shall give His angels charge over you, to keep you in all your ways. In their hands, they shall bear you up, lest you dash your foot against a stone.”

While this passage emphasizes God’s provision of angelic protection, it does not imply that believers have the ability or authority to summon or communicate with their guardian angels at will.

Seeking Guidance and Protection

Believers are encouraged to seek guidance, protection, and provision from God through prayer, faith, and obedience to His Word. James 1:5-6 (NKJV) encourages believers to ask God for wisdom and guidance in faith: “If any of you lacks wisdom, let him ask of God, who gives to all liberally and without reproach, and it will be given to him. But let him ask in faith, with no doubting, for he who doubts is like a wave of the sea driven and tossed by the wind.”

This passage emphasizes the importance of seeking divine guidance and wisdom directly from God through prayer and faith, rather than relying on intermediary beings or spiritual practices that may lead to spiritual deception or confusion.

One Mediator Between Man and God

God Almighty ordained only One “Mediator” between man and Himself which is Jesus Christ: “For there is one God, and one mediator between God and men, the man Christ Jesus” (1 Timothy 2:5). Only through Jesus can the sinner be in touch with God or reconciled to Him (John 14:5–6; Romans 5:1–2).

Discerning God’s Will

Believers are called to discern God’s will and direction through prayer, meditation on Scripture, and seeking counsel from mature believers and spiritual leaders. Proverbs 3:5-6 (NKJV) encourages believers to trust in the Lord and acknowledge Him in all their ways: “Trust in the Lord with all your heart, and lean not on your own understanding; In all your ways acknowledge Him, and He shall direct your paths.”

By aligning their lives with God’s Word and seeking His guidance in prayer, believers can experience His presence, protection, and provision in their lives without resorting to practices that may compromise their faith or lead them into spiritual danger.

Conclusion

In conclusion, while the concept of guardian angels and the desire to establish a connection with them may be appealing to some believers, it’s essential to heed the biblical warnings against engaging in practices associated with spiritism and divination. The Bible emphasizes the importance of seeking guidance, protection, and provision from God alone through prayer, faith, and obedience to His Word, rather than relying on intermediary beings or spiritual practices that may lead to spiritual deception or bondage. The Bible doesn’t teach that believers have the ability or authority to summon or communicate with their guardian angels at will.

By trusting in the Lord and seeking His guidance in all things, believers can experience His presence, protection, and provision in their lives and walk in obedience to His will.
