Angels 12

Finally, let’s read about the angel called Satan.  What kind of angel is Satan?

Revelation 12:7  Then war broke out in heaven.  Michael and his angels fought against the dragon, and the
dragon and his angels fought back.

Revelation 12:9  …  he (Satan) was hurled to the earth, and his angels with him.

Mathew 25:41  …  you who are cursed, into the eternal fire prepared for the devil and his angels.

Based on these scriptures, it appears that Satan was on the same level as archangel Michael.  From Angels 9, we
read that archangels are in charge of the regular angels.  These scriptures tell us that both Michael and Satan were
in charge of regular angels.  Therefore, it appears that Michael and Satan (Lucifer) are archangels.  It
appears that Satan was an archangel.

Next week, we will conclude our study of angels.  God bless.




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.

Thank you so much for studying.  God bless.


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.  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 5

Welcome and thanks for reading.  This week let’s read how angels appear to people and believers.

Here is one example:

Exodus 3:2  There the angels of the Lord appeared to him (Moses) in flames of fire from within a bush.

Most often, angels appear as real people.  Here are three examples.

Genesis 19:12-13  The two men (angels) said to Lot, “Do you have anyone else here – sons-in-laws, sons or
daughters, or anyone else in the city here, because we are going to destroy this place (Sodom and Gomorrah).
The outcry to the Lord against its people is so great that he sent us to destroy it.

Daniel 10:18  Again the one who looked like a man (an angel) touched me and gave me strength.

Hebrews 13:2  Do not forget to entertain strangers, for by so doing some people have entertained angels
without knowing it.

Here are three current examples of ordinary people meeting an angel.

1   A young girl lit the garbage in a barrel next to her house.  There was an aerosol can in the barrel that was hiss-
ing.  She felt hands around her, throwing her to the ground before it exploded.  Her family was in the
house cleaning and not nearby.

2  A lady was trapped in a burning building.  She was choking and could not find her way out.  Suddenly, a man
picked her up and carried her outside the building to safety.  The man had no protective gear and was
never heard from again.

3  A young girl is starting her junior year of high school.  She deeply wanted a dress but her parents were to poor.
She was depressed in her room.  She heard a voice say, “Remember the lillies of the field.  Are you not more impor-
tant than they?”  She said “Yes” and felt very happy and peaceful.  Shortly after, a lady pulled up to the front
of the house in a car.  She talked to the girls mother.  She gave the girls mother five dresses that she
was going to throw away.  The dresses still had the price tags.  The girl was very short and has to hem all her
clothes.  These five dresses fit perfectly.  They never saw this lady again.

Thank you so much for studying.  God bless.



Angels 4

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.


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.
