In Angels 7 through 10 we read that there are four basic angel groups.  Some believe there are four more
groups for a total of eight.  They refer to the other angel groups as powers, authorities, dominion and
rulers.  This is based off the following scriptures.

Colossians 2:10  and you have been given fullness in Christ, who is the head over every power and authority.

Ephesians 1:20-21  … seated him (Jesus) at his right hand in the heavenly realm, far above all rule and
authority, power and dominion and every title that can be given.

Ephesians 3:10  His intent was that now, through the church, the manifold wisdom of God should be made known
to the rulers and authorities in the heavenly realm.

Ephesians 6:12  For our struggle is not against flesh and blood, but against the authorities, against the powers
of the dark world and against the spiritual forces of evil in the heavenly realms.

Based on these scriptures, I CAN NOT conclude that there are four more angel groups.  To me, these
are general references that Jesus is far above any ruler or evil power on earth and he is far above any
angels or powers in the heavenly realm.

Angels 10

The fourth type of angels are the regular angels.  These are the angels that are sent as messengers to normal
believers.  Most of these angels are good angels but one third of them have fallen and follow Satan.

The good angels are the ones that we described with three examples in Angel 5.  They are obedient to the Arch-
angels and more importantly to God.

Again, the scriptures concerning the different types of angels are not perfectly clear.  What I described are com-
monly believed as the four different types of angels.

Next week we will read a few more possible angel types.

Thank you so much for studying.  God bless.


This week let’s read about the second type of angels.

The second type of angels are the cherubim Angels.  Many Christians believe these are the second highest rank-
ing angels.  These angels are described as angels that guard the things of God.

Genesis 3:24  After he drove the man (Adam) out, he placed on the east side of the Garden of Eden cherubim
and a flaming sword flashing back and forth to guard the way of the tree of life.

Hebrews 9:5  Above the ark where the cherubim of the glory, overshadowing the atonement cover (Arch of the
Covenant cover).

Next week, the third type of angel.

Angels 7

Welcome and thanks for studying.  This week, let’s begin our study of the four different groups of angels.

First, the seraphim Angels.  These are the angels that continually praise God.

Isaiah 6:2-3  Above him (God) were seraphs, each with six wings …  And they were calling to one another:  “Holy,
holy, holy is the Lord God Almighty;  the whole earth is full of his glory.”

Revelations 4:8-9  Each of the four living creatures had six wings and was covered with eyes all around, even under
his wings.  Day and night they never stop saying:  “Holy, holy, holy is the Lord God Almighty, who was, and is, and
is to come.”

As I mentioned in Angels 6, angels are spiritual beings and the six wings might be symbolic of their great covering
or protection with wings open wide?  Also, their wings might be symbolic of their great comfort as to wrap you in
their wings?

Thank you so much for studying.  God bless



Welcome.  Last week we read that angels sometimes appear as real people.  Now let’s read how angels are de-
scribed in the heavenly realm.

Isaiah 6:1-2  I saw the Lord seated on a throne, high and exalted, and the train of his robe filled the temple.
Above him stood the seraphim (high ranking angel),  each one had six wings:  with two wings they
covered their faces, with two they covered their feet, and with two they were flying.

The seraphim Angels covered their faces because God is completely holy.  They could not look upon him.  They
covered their feet because they were on holy ground; in God’s presence.  This is similar to Exodus 3:5 and
Joshua 5:15 when Moses and Joshua were standing on holy ground and were told to remove their sandals.  This
is a sign of respect.

Here is another scripture describing angels with wings.

Exodus 25:20  The cherubim (also high ranking angels) are to have their wings spread upward, over-
shadowing the cover with them.

This scripture describes two angels statues attached to the cover of the Arc of the Covenant (contained the
10 commandments).

Although the above two scriptures describe the angels in heaven as having wings, I’m not sure they really do.  The
bible is full of symbolism.  In the same way that God doesn’t really sit on a thrown (he is an omnipresent spiritual
being), I don’t think that angels really fly with wings.  Angels are spiritual beings that are not omnipresent.
As we read in Angels 5, angels can take many forms.  Angels appeared as fire, they appeared as
humans, they appeared as beings of light.  Angels can travel from one dimension to another
(earthly and heavenly).

Angel wings might be symbolic of their great covering or protection with wings open wide?  Also, their wings might
be symbolic of their great comfort as to wrap you in their wings?

Next week we will read about the hierarchy of angels.

Thank you so much for studying.  God bless.


Angels 3

In Angels 1 and 2 we read that angels are ministering spirits sent to serve believers.  One way angels serve be-
lievers is by audibly speaking to them.  Most often, this is a message from God.

Another way that angels serve believers is to protect them.

Genesis 48:16  the angel who has delivered me from all harm-  may he bless these boys.

Exodus 23:20  See, I am sending an angel ahead of you to protect you along the way and bring you to the
place I have prepared.

Psalms 34:7  The angel of the Lord encamps around those who fear him, and he delivers them.

Psalms 91:11  For he will command his angels concerning you to guard you in all your ways;  they will
lift you up in their hands, so that you will not strike your foot against the stone.

Acts 5:19  But during the night an angel of the Lord opened the doors of the jail and brought them
(apostles) out.

These scriptures tell us that angels protect the believers.  As mentioned in “Coincidence 6”, believers who
put on the full armor of God (righteousness, faith, salvation, word of God and prayer) as well as
continually listening to the Lord will be protected by his angels.  The believer will hear the warnings and
instructions that come from the Holy Spirit as well as Gods angels.

Thank you so much for studying.  God bless.


Angels 2

Last week we read that angels are ministering spirits sent to serve those who will inherit salvation.

Now let’s read how the angels minister to believers.

Genesis 16:11  The angel of the Lord said to her:  “You are now with child and you will have a son.”

Numbers 22:35  The angel of the Lord said to Balaam, “Go with the men, but speak only what I tell you.”

Judges 13:15  The angel of the Lord answered, “Your wife must do all that I have told her.”

Mathew 28:5  The angel said to the woman, “Do not be afraid, for I know that you are looking for Jesus, who
was crucified.

Luke 1:13  But the angel said to him:  “Do not be afraid, Zechariah, your prayer has been heard.  Your wife
Elizabeth will bear you a son.”

Luke 1:30  But the angel said to her, “Do not be afraid, Mary, you have found favor with God.”

Luke 2:10  But the angel said to them, “Do not be afraid.  I bring you good news of great joy that will be for all
people.  Today in the town of David a savior has been born to you;  he is Christ the Lord.

The previous scriptures tell us that angels minister by audibly speaking to believers.

In the following weeks we will read other ways in which angels minister to believers and the forms angels take.

Thank you so much for reading.  God bless.
