Angels are messengers of God,
employed by Him as the ministers of His will. They watch over us all the time, not just when we are in need. Angels are always
spoken of in the masculine gender and are represented throughout the Bible as a body of spiritual beings intermediate between
God and men: "You have made him (man) a little less than the angels" (Psalm 8:6). They, equally with man, are created beings;
"praise ye Him, all His angels: praise ye Him, all His hosts . . . for He spoke and they were made.Angels are created beings
- Colossians 1:16; Psalms 148:1, 2, 5
Angels are neither human nor deity. Deity bears the quality of being eternal,
which angels do not. Neither do they have flesh and bones as humans. They are identified as being "spirits." (Hebrews 1:14)
stand accountable before God. They can sin (2 Peter 2:4, Jude 6), but cannot receive forgiveness by the sacrifice of Christ
(He was sent in the likeness of men, to bear the sins of men). Rather, once they have sinned, they become the angels of Satan.
they have wills, the angels are, like all creatures, subject to the will of God. Good angels are sent by God to help believers
(Heb. 1:14) Why did God Create Angels?
The Creator Himself is so powerful and glorious that He cannot
be approached in person by human beings. He alone "hath immortality, dwelling in the light which no man can approach unto:
whom no man hath seen, nor can see (1 Timothy 6:16). Angels do not have man's shortcomings, and can therefore act for God
and represent Him when communicating with men and women. They bridge the huge gap between the holiness and perfection of God
in heaven and the shortcomings of dying people on this planet. Angels were made immortal (that is, never to die). Their eternal
quality was spoken of by Jesus in (Luke 20:35.36). Duties Of Angels
There are possibly a number of things
that angels do, of which we do not know, but the Scriptures have revealed to us some of the things angels do.
rejoice in heaven over one who repents. (Luke 15:10)
They carry the souls of the faithful to rest. (Luke 16:22)
minister to those who will inherit salvation. (Hebrews 1:14)
They execute punitive judgments of God on the wicked.
They aid providentially in bringing the unsaved to hear the gospel. (Acts 10:3) Who are our

has charged His angels with the ministry of watching and safeguarding every one of His creatures that behold not His face.
Kingdoms have their angels assigned to them, and men have their angels; these latter it is to whom religion designates the
Holy Guardian Angels. Jesus had told his own followers that those who in simple, child-like faith obey and reverence God would
have the services of His messengers: "Their angels do always behold the face of my Father which is in heaven" (Matthew 18:10).
These are powerful indications of how much personal care and comfort God is prepared to provide for those who truly fear Him.
How Can the Angels Serve Us Now?
For the believer, knowing that the angels are there for his or her
benefit is itself a great help. To understand the work of the angels is to be confident in God's care for us and in the ways
of providence that surround our lives. If we are sincere, we pray to God and God answers our prayers in harmony with His will.
He sends His angel who, unseen, orders the circumstances and situations around us, so changing our lives: "The steps of a
man are ordered by the LORD: and he delighteth in his way" (Psalm 37:23). Yes, angels do exist and they are there to help
us, if we fear God. Truth does not depend on what you can see. The things that are seen are transient, but the things that
are unseen are eternal (2 Corinthians 4:18, RSV).
