Angels – important things we need to know about them


What are Angels? – Powerful spirit beings in God’s presence but without human bodies

Heb 1:7 And of the angels He (God) says: "Who makes His angels spirits, And His ministers a flame of fire”.

Ps 104:4 Who makes His angels spirits, His ministers a flame of fire.

Heb 1:14 Are they (Angels) not all ministering spirits...

2 Pe 2:11 Although the angels in heaven who stand in the very presence of the Lord, and are far greater in power and strength than these (people)... TLB

Luke 1:19 And the angel answered and said to him, "I am Gabriel, who stands in the presence of God...”

What do angels do? The word Angel means “Messenger” They carry messages from God

Gen 28:12 Then he (Jacob) dreamed, and behold, a ladder was set up on the earth, and its top reached to heaven; and there the angels (messengers) of God were ascending and descending on it.

John 1:51 And He (Jesus) said to him, "Most assuredly, I say to you, hereafter you shall see heaven open, and the angels (messengers) of God ascending and descending upon the Son of Man." (are you a son of mankind too?).

What kind of messages do angels bring? That praise God, where to find salvation, the law

Luke 2:10 Then the angel said to them,"Do not be afraid, for behold, I bring you good tidings of great joy which will be to all people. For there is born to you this day in the city of David a Savior, who is Christ the Lord:.

Luke 2:13-15 And suddenly there was with the angel a multitude of the heavenly host (many other angels) praising God and saying: "Glory to God in the highest, And on earth peace, goodwill toward men!" When this great army of angels had returned again to heaven, the shepherds said to each other, "Come on! Let's go to Bethlehem!” NKJV/TLB

Angels direct us to preachers to preach to us the words of life by which we may be saved:

Acts 10:3-6 ...He saw clearly in a vision an angel of God coming in and saying to him, "Cornelius!"...“Now send men to Joppa, and send for Simon whose surname is Peter...He will tell you what you must do (in order for you and your whole household to be saved)."

An Angel directed Cornelius where to find someone to preach the gospel of salvation to
him, because angels don’t preach the living word, Christ, only the sons of God, who have
the Holy Spirit, do that. But Angels do preach the law, the written word of God.

Acts 7:53 You who received the Law as it was ordained and set in order and delivered by angels, and yet you did not obey it! AMP

Heb 2:2-3 For if the word spoken through angels proved steadfast, and every transgression and disobedience received a just reward, how shall we escape if we neglect so great a salvation, which at the first began to be spoken by the Lord, and was confirmed to us by those who heard Him,

And Angels direct us to those we should preach the gospel to so that they can be saved:

Acts 8:26 Now an angel of the Lord spoke to Philip (a deacon), saying, "Arise and go toward the south along the road which goes down from Jerusalem to Gaza." (Where he would find the treasurer of Ethiopia, to whom he preached salvation, and the Ethiopian was born again and then baptized in water).

Heb 1:14 Are they (Angels - messengers) not all ministering spirits sent forth to minister for those who will inherit salvation? (who will inherit salvation?)

Heb 5:9 ...He (Jesus) became the author of eternal salvation to all who obey Him,

James 2:5 ...Heirs of the kingdom which He promised to those who love Him.

John 14:23 (Jesus) ...If anyone loves Me, he will keep (retain and do) My word...

Where do angels primarily congregate – Mount Zion – the people in whom God dwells:

Heb 12:22-24 But you have come to Mount Zion and to the city of the living God,the heavenly Jerusalem, to an innumerable company of angels, to the general assembly and church of the firstborn who are registered in heaven, to God the Judge of all, to the spirits of righteous men made perfect, to Jesus... Are you currently living here, in Mount Zion, in Christ?
