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.

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

In Angels 1-3 we read that angels are ministering spirits sent to serve the believers.  One way that angels serve be-
lievers is to audibly deliver a message from God.  Another way that angels serve believers is to protect them.

In the following scriptures, we will read a different way that angels are used by God.

2 Samuel 24:15-16  So the Lord sent a plague on Israel from the morning until the time designated, and 70,000
of the people from Dan to Beersheba died.  When the angel stretched out his hand to destroy Jerusalem the
Lord was grieved because of the calamity and said to the angel who was afflicting the people, “Enough!  Withdraw
your hand.”

2 Kings 19:35  That night the angel of the Lord went out and put to death a hundred and eighty-five
thousand men in the Assyrian camp.

Psalms 78:49-51  He unleashed against them his hot anger, his wrath, indignation and hostility-  a band of de-
stroying angels.  He prepared a path for his anger;  he did not spare them from death but gave them over
to the plague.  He struck down all the first born of Egypt.

Acts 12:23  Immediately, because Herod (Roman King of Judea) did not give praise to God, an angel of the Lord
struck him down, and he was eaten by worms and died.

As we have just read, angels are also used to bring God’s judgement and destruction on individuals and on
large groups of people.

Thank you so much for studying.  God bless.

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.

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.



Angels 1

Let’s review our study about angels.  According to the scriptures, what are angels?

Hebrews 1:14  Are not all angels ministering spirits sent to serve those who inherit salvation?

All angels are ministering spirits.  They are spiritual beings sent to minister to the believers.

Although angels are spiritual beings, they do not have the same characteristics as the Trinity (God the Father, the
Son and the Holly Spirit).  Angels are not omnipresent (present everywhere at the same time), omnipotent (all
powerful), and omniscient (all knowing).  Nor are they eternal (no beginning and no end).

Angels were created by God.  Here are two verses that tell us angels were created by God.

Nehemiah 9:6  You alone are the Lord.  You made the heavens, even the highest heavens, and all their starry
hosts (angels), the earth and all that is on it …

Colossians 1:16  For by him all things were created:  things in heaven and on earth, visible and invisible …

Here are two more scriptures that express the superiority of Jesus over the angels.

Hebrews 1:4  So he (Jesus) became more superior to the angels as the name he has inherited is superior to

Hebrews 1:6  “Let all God’s angels worship him (Jesus).”

Here is a verse expressing that angels are more powerful than humans.

2 Peter 2:10  … Bold and arrogant, these men are not afraid to slander celestial beings;  yet even angels
although they are stronger and more powerful, do not bring slanderous accusations against such beings in
the presence of the Lord.
