Angels are real, they intervene when allowed to.
I was taught that they are always awaiting instructions.
My life and experiences have shown me they are certainly real....
I don't know that any 'evil' angels have intervened.....
but, so far, so good. I think I'll go ahead and believe that I can discern the helpful from the malevolent.

You are they. Children are being raised.
10 “See that you do not despise one of these little ones. For I tell you that their angels in heaven always see the face of my Father in heaven.
Remember, you are in an image. If YOU are the image, then the one you are connected to from the other side of the mirror is the one casting the
image. The Angels are those all around you, an the ones you cannot see, but can see you.
1 Corinthians 13
12 For now we see only a reflection as in a mirror; then we shall see face to face. Now I know in part; then I shall know fully, even as I am fully
13 And now these three remain: faith, hope and love. But the greatest of these is love.
The poetry of RUMI the Sufi is very eye opening.
Read 62 and 63.
The story is now concluded, with its ups and downs,
Like lovers' musings, without beginning or ending.
It has no beginning, even as eternity,
Nor ending, for 'tis akin to world without end.
Or like water, each drop whereof is at once
Beginning and end, and also has no beginning or end.
But God forbid! This story is not a vain fable,
'Tis the ready money of your state and mine, be sure!
Before every Sufi who is enlightened
Whatever is past is never mentioned.
When his whole thoughts are absorbed in present ecstasy,
No thought of consequences enters his mind. l0
Arab, water-pot, and angels are all ourselves!
"Whatsoever turneth from God is turned from Him." 11
Know the husband is reason, the wife lust and greed;
She is vested with darkness and a gainsayer of reason.
Learn now whence springs the root of this circumstance,
From this, that the Whole has parts of divers kinds.
These parts of the Whole are not parts in relation to it,
Not in the way that rose's scent is a part of the rose.
The beauty of the green shoot is part of the rose's beauty,
But the turtle-dove's cooing is a part of that Bulbuls music.
But if I engage in doubts and answers,
How can I give water to thirsty souls?
Did you catch that? Arab, water-pot, and angels are ourselves! Notice that the parts make up the whole. Each has it's purpose. What is he saying
in relation to other revelations we have found across the territory of scriptures?
How God made Adam superior to the Angels
in wisdom and honour.
He said, "By Allah, who knoweth hidden secrets,
Who created pure Adam out of dust;
In the form, three cubits high, which he gave him,
He displayed the contents of all spirits, all decrees!
Communicated to him the indelible tablet of existence, 6
That he might know all that is written on those tablets,
A11 that should be first and last to endless eternity
He taught him, with the knowledge of his own 'names,' 7
So that the angels were beside themselves at his instruction,
And gained more sanctity from his sanctification.
Sanctification is setting apart. Adam was given THE Mystery in total. Adam is the Heel of the loaf. We, who are many, are slices. The heel is at
both ends. The heel is first and last. We, who are many, are contained in that whole.
1 Corinthians 10
14 Therefore, my dear friends, flee from idolatry. 15 I speak to sensible people; judge for yourselves what I say. 16 Is not the cup of thanksgiving
for which we give thanks a participation in the blood of Christ? And is not the bread that we break a participation in the body of Christ? 17 Because
there is one loaf, we, who are many, are one body, for we all share the one loaf.
The key to understanding this is found in the truth behind it. The idol in question is the one we make of ourselves. When Jesus makes the statement
that he is the ONLY way to the Father, this is what it says. Unity is the way back from multiplicity of forms and functions. We, who are many, are
one. We originate from the one soul. That soul has ALL forms in one. The Angels wanted this mystery, yet man was encoded with it.
16.3 "You were in Heaven but its secrets had not yet been revealed to you;
and a worthless mystery you knew. This you made known to women, in
the hardness of your hearts. And through this mystery the women and the
men cause evil to increase on the Earth."
Who is he speaking to? Angels. Why do Angels want to use us as a proxy? To get the mystery that is INSIDE us. Don't think for a second that there
are not those fallen ones around us every day working toward this end. The Mystery School is not one we learn from. It's one we teach. We are not
learning from Angels. We are showing them the mystery.
