Angels are spirit being, they do not have a body and they are very important. We certainly do not know how we owe them but then, they are not meant to be worshiped but to minister to us. Angels are ministering spirits sent to us by God as our guardian angels. They are our guardian angels and are not bound by any natural or artificial law. In other words, they cannot be restricted by any artificial barrier. Therefore, angels can enter locked rooms, open doors without keys, and ascend in a flame according to Judges 13: 19-20. They travel in great distances quickly, travel between times and can be anywhere. They are very strong. For example, in the Bible, an angel killed 185,000 Assyrian soldiers in one night. Another slew 70,000 Israelites following David’s sin in the Book of 2 Samuel 24:15-16 and also in Matthew 28:2, it was recorded that an angel thwarted the power of Rome, broke the seal, and rolled away the stone from the Lord’s tomb. In addition, one angel will one day bind the devil and imprison him for a thousand years.
They are war lords. When they intervene on your behalf, nothing can be done about it, its total victory guaranteed. They exist in hierarchy, which basically means they have their own rank as recorded in Colossians 1:16. They are immortal being and champions in heaven. Now the question is, how many are they? Angels are uncountable, they are many but only two were mentioned in the Bible – Angel Gabriel and Angel Michael. The Bible says they will fight the battle for us on the last day which only confirms they are many. It then went ahead to say they are “ten thousand times ten thousand, and thousands of thousands”. And the book of Hebrews 12:22 refers to them as “an innumerable company of angels”. They are also referred to as legion of angels. Now, let’s take a further step by asking what their duties are?
According to the Book of Revelation 5:11-12, they serve, honor and worship God in heaven. Their work is to worship and praise God. That’s their first primary assignment. Secondly, they serve as servants. In other words, they are messenger to relate God’s work to man on earth. Angels also execute divine judgment on earth. They are like divine police officers and soldiers executing God’s judgment and purpose. They will also accompany the Lord when He returns with a loud trumpet. Basically, they will take the believers to heaven. And lastly, they guide believers, protect and strengthen the saints. In times of war, they serve as a backbone and a protective shield against the attacks of the evil ones. Now, who’s superior, man or angels?
According to Hebrews 1:14 which says, “Therefore, angels are only servants – spirits sent to care for people who will inherit salvation”, this means man is superior. They are to serve us, they are ministering spirits. They minister to us. And the Bible has also made us understand that we are superior to everything God has created and that includes angels. Even the Bible in 1 Corinthians 6:3 tells us that we will one day judge them. But then, let’s not get it twisted for it is only the just and righteous that is qualified to do this. That is, if we remain true to the Lord. In other words, only the children of God will be able to give judgment to the angels at the appointed time. And with this said, I can boldly say that born again believers are without a doubt more superior to angels.
Now, some of you might be wondering that if we say angels are very important and are part of our everyday lives, so what then is the work of the Holy Spirit? The Holy Spirit is the Third in The Trinity, He is God Himself and angels are servants. God will only minister to you through the Holy Spirit but angels are servants. They are not part of The Trinity and I hope that fully answers your question. Furthermore, little attention is paid to the study of angels today because many people consider such a study almost valueless. However, we should not underestimate the ministry of angels, particularly that of guardian angels.
