The word, “angel,” means “messenger.”

1. God created the angels before He created anything else in the universe.

The angels watched God work and shouted for joy at the results of the creation (Job 38:4-7).

2. All of the angels were created simultaneously.

They are unable to procreate. (Matthew 22:30). The number of angels has always been constant.

3. The number of angels is incomprehensible.

Revelation 5:11 records the number of Angels: “Ten thousand times ten thousand and thousands and thousands.”

4. Some angels rebelled against God.

Lucifer, who was in charge of guarding the throne of God and with bringing God praise and worship, and who was apparently co-equal with the angel Michael, chose to rebel (Isaiah 14).

A huge number of angels rebelled with him.  Fallen angels (demons) live in one of two places today:  (1) On earth, attacking and discouraging humans; and (2) In Tartarus, a prison cell in the lowest hell, waiting to be released during the Great Tribulation.

5. Angels are powerful.

Only one angel was needed to wipe out 185,000 Assyrians in a single night (2 Kings 19).

6. Angels were created to praise and worship God around His throne.

Revelation 5:11-12: “In a loud voice they sang, “Worthy is the Lamb, to receive power and wealth and wisdom and strength and honor and glory and praise!”

7. Angels are charged with the responsibility of guiding the affairs of nations.

We learn from Daniel 10 that angels are intricately involved in guiding our heads of state. Every nation also has a demon charged with the responsibility of bringing that nation to destruction (Ezekiel).

8. Angels fight Satan and his demons until the victory is won at the end of time.

Revelation 12:7-9: “And there was war in heaven. Michael and his angels fought against the dragon, and the dragon and his angels fought back…”

9. Every church is assigned an angel to watch over it.Revelation 


1:20: “The mystery of the seven stars… the seven stars are the angels of the seven churches, and the seven lampstands are the seven churches.”

10. Angels will separate the wheat from the weeds at the final judgment.

Matthew 13:38-42: “The field is the world, and the good seed stands for the sons of the kingdom. The weeds are the sons of the evil one, and the enemy who sows them is the devil. The harvest is the end of the age, and the harvesters are angels.”

11. Angels minister to those who believe in Christ.

Jacob’s dream of a ladder, by which angels ascended and descended between heaven and earth, is a beautiful picture of their incessant activity for us (Genesis 28:12).

12. Angels provide for physical needs of believers.

This was the case for Elijah under his juniper tree (1 Kings 19:5-7).

After a Wednesday night service several years ago, a lady told me of an angelic protection. Driving on a lonely desert road in her VW with her children the car’s engine caught fire. She stopped and tried to open the hood. She couldn’t; it was too hot. Suddenly, another car pulled up behind her. She thought that this was strange because she’d seen no other cars on the road.

He pulled out this big pair of asbestos gloves, opened the hood and used a fire extinguisher to put out the blaze. She turned to thank the man and he was gone. Both he and the car had disappeared.

13. Angels protect believers from danger.

Example: The three Hebrews in the furnace (Daniel chapter 3); Daniel in the lions’ den (Daniel chapter 6).

Once when Brianna, our oldest daughter, was just learning crawl, Julie heard me yell from the back bathroom. “Julie, come quickly!” At the same time I heard Julie call from the back bathroom, “Roger, come quickly.” We both ran quickly to discover Brianna about to tumble headlong onto the tile of our three-foot-deep sunken tub. We grabbed her just in time.

Julie said, “I’m sure glad you called me to get back here quickly.”

“I didn’t call you,” I said. “You called me.”

“I didn’t call you,” she said.

We had an angelic visitation from Brie’s guardian angel!

Experiences like these make Psalm 34:7 come alive: “Angels of the Lord encamp around those who fear God and deliver them.”

14. Angels sometimes reveal the Lord’s plans.

For example to Daniel (Daniel 9:21-23), to Cornelius (Acts 10:3-6), and to Mary at the birth of Jesus (Luke 2).

15. Angels minister to us at our time of death.

Luke 17:22: “The time came when the beggar died and the angels carried him to Abraham’s side.”

A cold chill runs up many of our backs to think that sometime in the future, and perhaps in the very near future for some of us, the Death Angel will be dispatched from Heaven to Earth.

If we are Christians, we need not be afraid of the Death Angel.  They may be our rod and staff which brings us through the Valley of the Shadow of Death.

16. Not all angels are good.

Galatians 1:8-11: “But even if we or an angel from heaven should preach a gospel other than the one we preached to you, let him be eternally condemned… I want you to know, brothers, that the gospel I preached is not something that man made up. I did not receive it from any man, nor was I taught it; rather, I received it by revelation from Jesus Christ.”

17. Have you ever wondered about guardian angels?

Matthew 18:10: “See that you do not look down on one of these little ones. For I tell you that their angels in heaven always see the face of my Father in heaven.”

I pray often for my guarding angel. I pray for him/her (it?) to be “strong” on my behalf in the spiritual battles that I fight. When I am praying for someone about to undergo surgery, I never fail to pray for their guardian angel, assigned to them at birth, to help guide the hand of the surgeon for a successful surgery. I want him/her (it?)and me to be good friends. I am looking forward to seeing him/her(it?) in heaven.
