How do You Design Your Guardian Angel?

Researched and Written by Rick Sanders

Lately, I have found much interest about angels being space aliens and their influence on human history.     Theories can be found that propose angels as rulers, angels as husbands, and angels as guardians.     The validity of angels existing seems to be a belief many spiritual people have presently.
“Watcher” is specifically mentioned in the Book of Daniel in relation to King Nebuchadnezzar’s dream of a fallen ego.     In Chapter 4, “Watcher” is found in verses 13, 17, and 23.

  •     (KJV Daniel 4:13)      I saw in the visions of my head upon my bed, and, behold, a watcher (H5894) and an holy one came down from heaven;
  •     (KJV Daniel 4:17)      This matter is by the decree of the watchers (H5894), and the demand by the word of the holy ones: to the intent that the living may know that the most High ruleth in the kingdom of men, and giveth it to whomsoever he will, and setteth up over it the basest of men.
  •     (KJV Daniel 4:23)      And whereas the king saw a watcher (H5894) and an holy one coming down from heaven, and saying, Hew the tree down, and destroy it; yet leave the stump of the roots thereof in the earth, even with a band of iron and brass, in the tender grass of the field; and let it be wet with the dew of heaven, and let his portion be with the beasts of the field, till seven times pass over him;

The Strong number is H5894 for “watcher,”
 עיר   ‛ı̂yr   eer  ,
from the Chaldee.     Strong mentions “watcher, angel, and guardian” as possible translations.     Strong H5894 uses H5782 as a root.     The root can add to the meaning and source of a term or word.     So, it is helpful to research the roots of words to receive a historic and an evolutional context.     H5782,
עוּר   ‛ûr   oor
is considered the primitive root; meaning, it is the basis for other words in this word group.     Oor means the “opening of eyes, waking, and arising.”     The evolution of oor to eer revolves around the actions of eyes.     Eyes open, and eyes watch.     Oor evolves to eer.
This is what we discover from these three texts.     The eer is a resident of the heavens.     The eer have decrees and make decrees.     The eer‘s decree provides for the knowledge of men to be reminded of the Most High’s power and that the power is transferable to whom the Most High chooses.     The eer‘s decree mentions the extent of the discipline meted out for King Nebuchadnezzar.
The design hierarchy of Heaven expresses that the Most High’s reputation will be protected, that the eer “watch” to make sure the reputation remains unsullied, and that the eer have the authority to discipline the reputation destroyer (King Nebuchadnezzar) and set a time period for that discipline to be carried out.
While eer implies an entity carrying out the will of the Most High, some may not consider a “watcher” or angel something to believe in today’s fast paced world.     Yet, the New Testament books of the Bible, imply that angels and spiritual beings still factor into our faith.     In the Letter to the Ephesians, Paul points out:

  • (KJV Ephesians 6:12)      For we wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness in high places.
