The angels (messengers of Yahweh) are spiritual beings and created higher than m

an by God to serve him. Early Christians took over Jewish ideas of angels. In th
e early stage, the Christian concept of an angel shifted between the angel as a
messenger of God and a manifestation of God himself. Later came identification o
f individual angelic messengers. Some (the good angels) have remained obedient t
o him and continue to carry out the will of God. While others (fallen angels) di
sobeyed, fell from their holy position, and now stand in active opposition to th
e work and plan of God. In the scriptures it describes angels as the following.
Are not all angels ministering spirits sent to serve those who will inherit salv
ation? (Hebrews 1:14) The Lord Jesus created all of the angels. For by him (Jesu
s) all things were created: things in heaven and on earth, visible and invisible
, whether thrones or powers or rulers or authorities; all things were created by
him and for him. (Colossians 1:16) The reason given is, â For He commanded and they
were createdâ (Psalms 148:1-5). The nature of their creation is as a host or a compa
ny, simultaneously. Unlike human beings and the animal kingdom created in pairs
and who procreate, angels were created simultaneously as a company, a countless
host of myriads. Thou, even thou, art LORD alone; thou hast made heaven, the hea
ven of heavens, with all their host, the earth, and all things that are therein,
the seas, and all that is therein, and thou preservest them all; and the host o
f heaven worshippeth thee. (Nehemiah 9:6) This is suggested by the fact they are
not subject to death and they do not or were not to propagate. They are neverth
eless an innumerable host created before the creation of the earth (Job. 38:7, P
salm 148:2&5, Daniel 7:10, Matt 22:28-30, Hebrews 12:22, and Revelations 5:11).
The Holy Angels are powerful spirit beings. Seeing it is a righteous thing with
God to recompense tribulation to them that trouble you; And to you who are troub
led rest with us, when the Lord Jesus shall be revealed from heaven with his mig
hty angels, In flaming fire taking vengeance on them that know not God, and that
obey not the gospel of our Lord Jesus Christ. (2 Thessalonians 1:6-8) Whereas a
ngels, which are greater in power and might, bring not railing accusation agains
t them before the Lord. (2 Peter 2:11) The angels of God worship Jesus. Hebrews
1:6-7 And again, when he bringeth in the first begotten into the world, he saith
, And let all the angels of God worship him. And of the angels he saith, Who mak
eth his angels spirits, and his ministers a flame of fire. They obey God. Psalm
103:20 Bless the LORD, ye his angels, that excel in strength, that do his comman
dments, hearkening unto the voice of his word. And praise him. Psalm 148:2 Prais
e ye him, all his angels: praise ye him, all his hosts. John was overwhelmed by
the greatness of God and was about to worship an angel who was there during the
time of his vision/experience of future events. And we read that in Revelations
19:10 he was about to worship that angel and told not to. And I fell at his feet
to worship him. "And he said unto me, See thou do it not: I am thy fellow serva
nt, and of thy brethren that have the testimony of Jesus: worship God: for the t
estimony of Jesus is the spirit of prophecy." Also in Colossians 2:18 Let no man
beguile you of your reward in a voluntary humility and worshipping of angels, i
ntruding into those things which he hath not seen, vainly puffed up by his flesh
ly mind. Our God is a jealous God (A singular one and not a plural or three sepa
rate but equal person god). We are commanded to worship him only. Exodus 34:14 F
or thou shalt worship no other god: for the LORD, whose name is Jealous, is a je
alous God. Are we greater than God to provoke to jealously with the worship of i
dols or two other newly formed gods? No way! Deuteronomy 32:12 So the LORD alone
did lead him, and there was no strange god with him. He made him ride on the hi
gh places of the earth, that he might eat the increase of the fields; and he mad
e him to suck honey out of the rock, and oil out of the flinty rock; Butter of k
ine, and milk of sheep, with fat of lambs, and rams of the breed of Bashan, and
goats, with the fat of kidneys of wheat; and thou didst drink the pure blood of
the grape. But Jeshurun (Israel) waxed fat, and kicked: thou art waxen fat, thou
art grown thick, thou art covered with fatness; then he forsook God which made
him, and lightly esteemed the Rock of his salvation. They provoked him to jealou
sy with strange gods, with abominations provoked they him to anger. They sacrifi
ced unto devils, not to God; to gods whom they knew not, to new gods that came n
ewly up, whom your fathers feared not. Of the Rock that begat thee thou art unmi
ndful, and hast forgotten God that formed thee. Even the evil angels or demons k
now that there is only one God. James 2:19 Thou believest that there is one God;
thou doest well: the devils also believe, and tremble. Satan himself knew that
God would be in the flesh or Emmanuel (Isaiah 9:6) as far back as Genesis 3:15.
Behold, a virgin shall be with child, and shall bring forth a son, and they shal
l call his name Emmanuel, which being interpreted is, God with us. (Matthew 1:23
) Therefore he imitated or duplicated this very concept in nearly all mystery an
d pagan religions along with various triads. Mystery paganistic religions are fu
ll of dying and rising Gods. Dionysus is torn to pieces by the Titans and brough
t back to life again by Rhea. Adonis is killed by a boar and raised on the third
day. Baal is killed by Mot then comes back to life. Attis is dismembered and di
es from his wounds then comes back to life and dances. Osiris is dismembered by
Set then put together again and becomes a god. In Mithraism the bull killed by M
ithra provides life through its body and blood for the whole universe. While all
the angels were originally created holy and without sin, there was a rebellion
led by Satan, who, being lifted up by his own beauty, sought to exalt himself ab
ove God. In his rebellion, he took with him one-third of the angels (Revelations
12:4). This rebellion and fall is described for us in Isaiah 14:4-21 and Ezekie
l 28:1-19. Being embodied in the kings of Babylon and Tyre. Prophesying of a fut
ure angelic conflict that will occur in the middle of the Tribulation, John wrot
e, â And there was war in heaven: Michael and his angels fought against the dragon; a
nd the dragon fought and his angels, And prevailed not; neither was their place
found any more in heaven. And the great dragon was cast out, that old serpent, c
alled the Devil, and Satan, which deceiveth the whole world: he was cast out int
o the earth, and his angels were cast out with him. â (Revelations 12:7-9). As is cl
ear from Revelation 12:7 and many other passages, the leader of these fallen ang
els (or demons as they are also called) is Satan ( Matthew 12:25-27). Satan, the
leader of unholy angels, is a liar, a murderer, and a thief (John 10:10). As Go
dâ s great antagonist, he hates God and his people. The word of God teaches us that h
e prowls about like a roaring lion in search of those whom he may devour by his
evil schemes (1 Peter 5:8). As an angelic being, Satan, along with his demon-lik
e angels who operate under his authority, is supernaturally powerful and brillia
nt, and he uses all his powers against humanity. Not only is he a liar, a thief,
and a murderer, but that which characterizes him above all else is deception. J
ohn describes him as the one â who deceives the whole worldâ (John 12:9). And no marvel;
for Satan himself is transformed into an angel of light. Therefore it is no grea
t thing if his ministers also be transformed as the ministers of righteousness;
whose end shall be according to their works. (2 Cor. 11:14-15). We must be aware
of his devices to tempt us with found in 1 John 2:15-17. When Satan tempted Jes
us, he tried to slightly changed the meaning of a scripture verse or distorted i
t's real and true meaning. After Christ Jesus was baptized (Who did not need it
as being sinless, yet fulfilled all righteousness as our Great High priest. See
Matthew 3:15-16 and Hebrews 4:15) he was led into the wilderness (world) to be t
empted by the greatest adversary of all mankind. Matthew 4:1-11 Then was Jesus l
ed up of the Spirit into the wilderness to be tempted of the devil. And when he
had fasted forty days and forty nights, he was afterward an hungered. And when t
he tempter came to him, he said, If thou be the Son of God, command that these s
tones be made bread. But he answered and said, It is written, Man shall not live
by bread alone, but by every word that proceedeth out of the mouth of God. Then
the devil taketh him up into the holy city, and setteth him on a pinnacle of th
e temple, And saith unto him, If thou be the Son of God, cast thyself down: for
it is written, He shall give his angels charge concerning thee: and in their han
ds they shall bear thee up, lest at any time thou dash thy foot against a stone.
Jesus said unto him, It is written again, Thou shalt not tempt the Lord thy God
. Again, the devil taketh him up into an exceeding high mountain, and sheweth h
im all the kingdoms of the world, and the glory of them; And saith unto him, All
these things will I give thee, if thou wilt fall down and worship me. Then sait
h Jesus unto him, Get thee hence, Satan: for it is written, Thou shalt worship t
he Lord thy God, and him only shalt thou serve. Then the devil leaveth him, and,
behold, angels came and ministered unto him. Here we see that angels are sent t
o protect and deliver the righteous (Psalm 91:1-16). And in Daniel 6:22. My God
hath sent his angel, and hath shut the lions mouths, that they have not hurt me:
forasmuch as before him innocency was found in me; and also before thee, O king
, have I done no hurt. Also in Acts 5:17-20. Then the high priest rose up, and a
ll they that were with him, (which is the sect of the Sadducees,) and were fille
d with indignation, And laid their hands on the apostles, and put them in the co
mmon prison. But the angel of the Lord by night opened the prison doors, and bro
ught them forth, and said, Go, stand and speak in the temple to the people all t
he words of this life. The angels (here specifically, the evil ones) execute his
judgements upon the people. Psalm 78:49 He cast upon them the fierceness of his
anger, wrath, and indignation, and trouble, by sending evil angels among them.
These evil spirits or angels, torment people. Acts 5:16 There came also a multit
ude out of the cities round about unto Jerusalem, bringing sick folks, and them
which were vexed with unclean spirits: and they were healed every one. The angel
s will seek out those who are still in their sins. Matthew 13:41-42 The Son of m
an shall send forth his angels, and they shall gather out of his kingdom all thi
ngs that offend, and them which do iniquity; And shall cast them into a furnace
of fire: there shall be wailing and gnashing of teeth. Jesus will return with th
em. For the Son of man shall come in the glory of his Father with his angels; an
d then he shall reward every man according to his works. (Matthew 16:37) These m
essengers watch over men. For I think that God hath set forth us the apostles la
st, as it were appointed to death: for we are made a spectacle unto the world, a
nd to angels, and to men. (1 Corinthians 4:9) The saints of God will judge them.
Know ye not that we shall judge angels? how much more things that pertain to th
is life? (1 Corinthians 6:3) Angels can come in our lives undetected. Be not for
getful to entertain strangers: for thereby some have entertained angels unawares
. (Hebrews 13:2) These very angels will escort/bring believers into paradise. An
d it came to pass, that the beggar died, and was carried by the angels into Abra
hamâ s bosom: the rich man also died, and was buried. (Luke 16:22) They can bring sal
vation to the lost. Acts 10:3-6,48&36 He saw in a vision evidently about the nin
th hour of the day an angel of God coming in to him, and saying unto him, Cornel
ius. And when he looked on him, he was afraid, and said, What is it, Lord? And h
e said unto him, Thy prayers and thine alms are come up for a memorial before Go
d. And now send men to Joppa, and call for one Simon, whose surname is Peter: He
lodgeth with one Simon a tanner, whose house is by the sea side: he shall tell
thee what thou oughtest to do. And he commanded them to be baptized in the name
of the Lord. Jesus Christ: (he is Lord of all). Or bring condemnation. Galatians
1:8-9 But though we, or an angel from heaven, preach any other gospel unto you
than that which we have preached unto you, let him be accursed. As we said befor
e, so say I now again, If any man preach any other gospel unto you than that ye
have received, let him be accursed. We must remember that evil angels will do th
e opposite of the good ones. Devils can and will teach lying things. 1 Timothy 4
:1 Now the Spirit speaketh expressly, that in the latter times some shall depart
from the faith, giving heed to seducing spirits, and doctrines of devils. And d
o miracles to deceive us. Revelations 16:13-14 And I saw three unclean spirits l
ike frogs come out of the mouth of the dragon, and out of the mouth of the beast
, and out of the mouth of the false prophet. For they are the spirits of devils,
working miracles, which go forth unto the kings of the earth and of the whole w
orld, to gather them to the battle of that great day of God Almighty. Jesus who
was God in the flesh, (1 Timothy 3:16) expelled Satan by the spirit of God insid
e him.Matthew 12:28 But if I cast out devils by the Spirit of God, then the king
dom of God is come unto you. All Christians or believers baptized in the name of
Jesus/Yeshuah who are saved by faith and grace have power/authority over evil a
ngels. Matthew 10:1 And when he had called unto him his twelve disciples, he gav
e them power against unclean spirits, to cast them out, and to heal all manner o
f sickness and all manner of disease. Mark 16:15-17 And he said unto them, Go ye
into all the world, and preach the gospel to every creature. He that believeth
and is baptized shall be saved; but he that believeth not shall be damned. And t
hese signs shall follow them that believe; In my name shall they cast out devils
; they shall speak with new tongues. Some demons or evil angels have more power
than others. Matthew 12:45 Then goeth he, and taketh with himself seven other sp
irits more wicked than himself, and they enter in and dwell there: and the last
state of that man is worse than the first. Even so shall it be also unto this wi
cked generation. Evil spirits can speak through a person through channeling. Thi
s is nothing new but of the old. Acts 16:16-18 And it came to pass, as we went t
o prayer, a certain damsel possessed with a spirit of divination met us, which b
rought her masters much gain by soothsaying: The same followed Paul and us, and
cried, saying, These men are the servants of the most high God, which shew unto
us the way of salvation. And this did she many days. But Paul, being grieved, tu
rned and said to the spirit, I command thee in the name of Jesus Christ to come
out of her. And he came out the same hour. Today we are commanded to study the w
ord of life that n save us from ourselves and sin. 1 Timothy 2:15-16 Study to sh
ew thyself approved unto God, a workman that needeth not to be ashamed, rightly
dividing the word of truth. But shun profane and vain babblings: for they will i
ncrease unto more ungodliness. Shun the trinity as it is a vain teaching of man.
Instead, continue to apply the word of God in all things and proving everything
while holding fast to that which is good. 1 Timothy 3:14-17 But continue thou i
n the things which thou hast learned and hast been assured of, knowing of whom t
hou hast learned them; And that from a child thou hast known the holy scriptures
, which are able to make thee wise unto salvation through faith which is in Chri
st Jesus. All scripture is given by inspiration of God, and is profitable for do
ctrine, for reproof, for correction, for instruction in righteousness: That the
man of God may be perfect, thoroughly furnished unto all good works. God bless y
ou and make his presence to shine upon all that you do.
