Regarding Angelic Direction

Jehovah's Witnesses believe in angelic direction in their ministry per Revelation 14:6, 7, and have stories to back it up. It looks like Mormons do too, only it seems to focus more on the spirit guiding them to searching individuals.[1] Obviously, angels and the holy spirit cannot be guiding searching individuals both to two radically different belief systems.[2] Instead, perhaps we could visualize two agents observing searching individuals. God and Satan. God and his son Jesus send forth their angels to guide their evangelizers, and Satan sends forth his demons to guide his evangelizers. (2 Corinthians 11:14-15) This is very sobering. Are we in a race to reach searching people before Satan's evangelizers do?

Footnotes:
[1] Based on an inquiry to Mormons on Yahoo! Answers: "Mormons, do you believe your missionaries have angelic direction?"
[2] Mormonism unwittingly denies Christ's ransom, as it inevitably holds, by logical deduction, that his blood is the product of Adam's transgression in Eden. Therefore, angels and the holy spirit cannot be guiding searching individuals to this anathematic religion.
