In May of 2011, one of the most devastating EF5 tornadoes struck Joplin, Missouri, killing 161 people. Images of this destruction shocked residents, leaving most unable to distinguish their homes, neighborhoods and town. Like any tragedy, media outlets flocked to Joplin, trying to portray human interest stories of survival. Unfortunately, the most intriguing account never received much attention until now.
For he will command his angels concerning you to guard you in all your ways, Psalm 91:11.
Perhaps, not sure how to handle several strange encounters with butterfly people, the National Paranormal Association published this phenomena in a January 16th, 2012 article. Intrigued, a recent episode of Monsters and Mysteries in America dedicated a portion of their show to illustrate how these entities shielded woman and children from flying projectiles. If these angels didn’t intervene on behalf of Joplin, the death toll would have likely reached into the thousands.
My God sent his angel and shut the lions’ mouths, and they have not harmed me, because I was found blameless before him; and also before you, O king, I have done no harm, Daniel 6:22.
Whenever news doesn’t fall into alignment with a secular worldview, most stories are buried, nixed or suppressed. In the case of Joplin, maybe writers didn’t want to emphasize that angels saved some while 161 perished. Whatever the reason for this omission, its clear that angels are not just an old wise tale. Rather, guardian angels exist in many shapes and forms. Although butterfly shaped creatures sound unreasonable, when you connect the dots, its highly probable that eye witnesses of these encounters saw Joplin’s angels.
