Angels are ethereal and mysterious spirits that belong to a different order of beings.
Compared to flesh-and-blood human beings and don’t have physical bodies.
The word “angel” in the Bible is translated from the Hebrew word malach and the Greek word angelos, both meaning “messenger.”
Angels are gods messengers, and bring divine messages from God.
These can include warnings, comfort, including the good news of God’s desire to be close to humanity forever.
The way angels have various ways to bring messages, some of them being dreams, visions as well as visiting one in person.
Through these messages the God’s divine messengers help people get out of dangerous situations, relationships, and places.
These divine spirits do not have a gender in a human sense, but in Bible they are usually referred to as male.
While our contemporary idea of what an angel looks like emerged in the 4th century, the existence of angel-like figures in art can be traced back a lot earlier.
Angels are a positive symbol, and positive spirits. Their negative counterparts are the fallen angels, or the demons.
Fallen angels represent the evil spirit, that once used to worship the God themselves.
Under the leadership of Lucifer (Satan) they rebelled against God.
There was a war in Heaven (where God and all the angels lived).
However, the rebellious angels in the Bible were defeated and cast down to earth.
