Angels

What Are Angels?

Angels, as understood in Christian theology, are celestial beings created by God. They are spiritual, non-corporeal entities, often depicted as messengers or agents of God, serving His purposes and carrying out His will. The Bible describes various roles and functions of angels, highlighting their presence in both the Old and New Testaments.

In their role as messengers, angels appear to key figures in the Bible, delivering divine messages. For instance, the angel Gabriel announced the birth of Jesus to Mary (Luke 1:26-38). Angels are also portrayed as protectors and guides, as seen in Psalm 91:11, which says, “For he will command his angels concerning you to guard you in all your ways.”

Furthermore, angels worship and glorify God, as depicted in Revelation 5:11-12, where countless angels praise God around His throne. They are often seen as embodiments of purity and obedience to God’s will.

In Christian tradition, angels are also believed to engage in spiritual warfare against demonic forces, as described in books like Daniel and Revelation.

It’s important to note that while angels are powerful and majestic creatures, they are not to be worshiped. They serve a supportive role in the divine plan, directing worship and glory to God alone. This perspective on angels aligns with mainstream Christian teachings across various denominations.
