HOW DID ORIGIN OF ANGELS
Scripture speaks of the creation of angels, therefore, it is clear that they have not existed from all eternity. Colossians says, "For by him were all things created, in heaven and on earth, visible and invisible, whether thrones or dominions or rulers or authorities, all things were created by Him and for Him. He is before all things, and in him all things consist. '
The time of their creation is never definitely specified, but it is more likely that this occurred in the context of the creation of the heavens in Genesis. It may be that God created the angels immediately after He had created the heavens and before he created the earth, because, according to Job, "the son of God shouted for joy" when he threw the foundations of the earth
HOW THERE ANGELS
While the Scriptures give no precise figures, we are told that the number of angels is a great
It seems that all the angels were created at the same time. No new angels are added to that number. The angels are not subject to death or any other form of extinction, so they decrease in number. It seems reasonable to conclude that there are at least as many spiritual beings in existence as there will have been humans throughout their history on earth
The angels have bodies

When angels appear, they usually appear as men. In Genesis 18, Abraham welcomed three angelic persons who appeared at first glance nothing more than a few travelers. In the next chapter, two angels went to Sodom where they were supposed to be just a pair of man visitors.With except perhaps debatable passage in Zechariah, angels always appear as males rather than women
Angels in the Bible never appear as cute, chubby babies! They are always full-grown adults. When people in the Bible saw an angel, their typical response was to fall on their faces in fear and awe, not to touch and tickle an adorable baby.
Some passages of the Bible angels with wings image. Other verses talk about angels flying, and we assume that the wings would be useful for this flight. However, I suspect that angels can move without having to depend on wings. Most references to angels in the Bible say nothing about wings, and in passages like Genesis, it is certain that no wings were visible

No, angels are not glorified human beings. Matthew says they do not marry or reproduce like humans, and Hebrews says that when we come to the heavenly Jerusalem, we will be met by "myriads of angels" and "spirits of just men made perfect," two distinct groups. Angels are a company or an association, not a race descended from a common ancestor. We are called "son of man", but angels are never called "son of heaven."
