ANGELS are created beings. They are messengers and are spirits. The Hebrew word for ANGEL is “malak” (Strong’s #4397), which means a “messenger”. It is also used sometimes to mean a prophet, priest, teacher, ambassador, or king. The Greek word for ANGEL is “angelos” (Strong’s #32), which means “messenger”.
The Faith of God’s people in His Covenant Church is something that was prophesized in the Scriptures and was manifested in the first century through the preaching of the gospel. It is something that even the angels desired to understand.
“To them it was revealed that, not to themselves, but to us they were ministering the things which now have been reported to you through those who have preached the gospel to you by the Holy Spirit sent from Heaven–THINGS WHICH ANGELS DESIRE TO LOOK INTO.”- 1 Pet 1:12.
HOLY ANGELS are created beings, superior to humans on earth, and who are always serving God. -Heb 2:7; Psa 103:20. They do not have physical bodies of flesh and blood like man does. But they can assume human form when necessary. They are referred to as elect angels. – 1 Tim 5:21. They are sent forth by God to minister to the elect saints. – Heb 1:14; Heb 13:2; Psa 91:11. When Christ returned in glory at His second coming Parousia in 66-70 ad, the Holy Angels came with Him. -Matt 25:31; Mark 8:38; Luke 9:26.
EVIL ANGELS are created beings that sinned and left their own abode. God reserved them in everlasting chains under darkness in the unseen realm for the judgement of the great day, which judgement was in 70ad.– Jude 25:41;2 Pet 2:4; also, probably Rom 8:38- “principalities.” They are forever in the darkness of unbelief in Christ. They will never repent and move from their state of being in everlasting chains apart from God. They will never experience the wonderful graces of God.
