PostSubject: About angels~   Mon May 15, 2017 1:23 pm

Now that we've kind of brought up the subject, seems like a good time to see what the Bible tells us about them.

From:
https://www.apologeticspress.org/apcontent.aspx?category=11&article=424

Angel: in Greek angelos and the Hebrew malawk, both meaning "messenger", speaking of their function, not their nature.


The same word has been used for people: Haggai was referred to as “Jehovah’s messenger [malawk]” (Haggai 1:13). God, through Malachi, referred to a priest as “my messenger [malawk]” (Malachi 2:7). And, John the Baptist also was referred to as a “messenger” [malawk—3:1]. Matthew (11:10) likewise called John the Baptist a “messenger” (angelos).

We think of angels as spirits  (Hebrews 1:14)
without flesh or blood (Luke 24:39)
that cannot marry (Matthew 22:30)
are created beings (Nehemiah 9:6; Colossians 1:16; Psalm 148:2,5)

though immortal (cf. Luke 20:36), they are not eternal-NOT DIETY,
and are not to be worshipped (Revelation 22:9)

Angels worship and serve God (Isaiah 6:2-3;) (Revelation 22:8-9)
can take on human form  (Genesis 16:10-12)  (Luke 1:26)
Acts 7:38,53,      Exodus 19:18-25  (Hebrews 1:13-14) 
angels even take the spirits of the righteous dead into a state of happiness (Luke 16:22).

called “sons of God” in (Job 1:6; 38:7)
stronger than men (2 Samuel 24:16),
more intelligent (Daniel 9:21-22), 
swifter (Daniel 9:21) than any mere man.
angels are intelligent (Daniel 9:21-22; 10:14; Revelation 19:10)
have emotions (1 Peter 1:12—desirous; Job 38:7—joyful).
They also possess free will and the ability to reason (Jude 6; cf. 2 Peter 2:4).

they will accompany Christ at His Second Coming, “rendering vengeance to them that know not God, and to them that obey not the gospel of our Lord Jesus” (2 Thessalonians 1:7-Cool.

There is discussion (debate) as to the time of their creation in the last part of the link.


Greater is He that is in you, than he that is in the world.   1 John 4:4
