Angels Exist In The Way
The Scriptures give us no indication of the precise time of the creation of angels, their existence is assumed in ancient times. Our Lord often spoke of angels in the New Testament, they are numerous and seven orders are mentioned: Angels, Powers, Principalities, Dominations, Thrones and Archangels the Old Testament specifically mentions two others Seraph and Cherub.
God has given great wisdom of angels, freedom and power, and their many appearances in the New Testament are an indication of the role assigned to them. The New Testament and the Old Testament refer also to the fallen angels. The Temptation of Adam and Eve presupposes the existence of evil spirits or demons who were cast into hell where they have no hope of redemption. The angels are purely spiritual or persons without bodies, some contemplate the face of God and are therefore happiness.
These spiritual beings comprise the celestial court and are called angels (from the Greek "messenger") because, according to the Bible, they carry out missions at God's command. To accomplish these tasks, they may sometimes assume bodily form. According to the Bible, their missions are sometimes of great importance
Like us, the angels are the objects of God's grace and love. But because, unlike us, they are not corporeal creatures, their response to God's love did not require time and reflection to grow and mature. As soon as they were created and received grace, they had the opportunity to respond to God's love and thus be welcomed into bliss. While many have done, others not. Perhaps the most significant activity of the good angels and continues to be the agents is of particular providence of God for humanity. Thus, the Church teaches that everyone has a guardian angel, based on references to them throughout the Bible
Why did God Create Angels
The Creator Himself is so powerful and glorious that it can not be approached in person by human beings. He alone "hath immortality, dwelling in the light which no man can approach: that no man hath seen, nor can see angels do not have gaps in man, and can therefore act for God represent and in communicating with men and women .. they fill the huge gap between the holiness and perfection of God in heaven and the shortcomings of dying people on this planet. Anges made immortal (that is to never die). Their eternal quality was spoken by Jesus when he said
"They which shall be accounted worthy to attain to that age and the resurrection from the dead, neither marry, nor are given in marriage: they can no longer die, for they are like angels, and will be the son of God. son is the resurrection. "
Jesus said that in the same way as the angels (the children or "son" of God) live for ever and are of one kind, so that those who are called the "son" and "daughter" of God when Jesus also return to live forever and will not marry
Angels with Names
Only occasionally are the angels given names. "Michael", for example, was "the great prince which standeth for the children of thy people (Israel)." Without a doubt, the most important of angelic appearances are those of the angel whose name was "Gabriel . "He was sent twice to the prophet Daniel. The second time Daniel was at prayer, and Gabriel," being caused to fly swiftly, touched me ... and talked with me, "and began to prophesy date of the first coming of the Messiah, Jesus Christ
There was therefore great expectation among the Jews at the time when Jesus Christ was about to be born, and this was accentuated by the personal appearance of Gabriel again, firstly to Zacharias the priest in service in the temple, then to Mary, who was betrothed to Joseph. In Zechariah, the angel announced. "I am Gabriel, who stand before God: and am sent to speak unto thee." We notice that angels can stand in the glorious presence of the Lord. Whereas men can not., And the angels are sent to do what God wants.'s mission here was to announce the miraculous birth of John the Baptist.
When Jesus came to be born in Bethlehem, the birth was the signal for a glorious witness of divine approval, seen by shepherds: "An angel of the Lord (would it have been Gabriel?) They appeared, and the glory of the Lord shone around them, and they were filled with fear ... And suddenly there was with the angel a multitude of the heavenly host praising God and saying: "Glory to God in the highest heaven, and on earth peace to men of good will!"
Who are our guardian angels
There shall no evil befall thee, neither affliction come near your tent, His angels that God has commanded you, they keep you in all your ways. On their hands they will bear you up, lest you dash your foot against a stone.
A Psalm heavenly spirit assigned by God to watch over each of us during our lives. The doctrine of angels is part of the tradition of the Church. The role of the guardian angel is both to guide us to good thoughts, works and words, and to preserve us from evil. Since the 17th century, the Church has celebrated a feast in their honor in October throughout the Universal Church. Since the last calendar revision this feast is October 2.
He charged His angels with the ministry of watching and safeguarding every one of His creatures who will not see his face. Kingdoms have their angels assigned to them, and men have their angels; these it is to whom religion designates the Holy Guardian Angels. Our Lord says in the Gospel: "Take heed that you offend one of these little ones, for their angels in heaven see the face of my Father." Existence of Guardian Angels, is, hence a dogma of faith Christian in these conditions, it should not be our respect for the intelligence and holy sure that is always present with us, and how great our solicitude, lest by any act of ours, we offend those eyes are never folded us in all our ways!
Prayer to our Guardian AngelAngels of the early Church Revelations of the Lord speaks to each of the seven Churches by means of instructing angels to record his dictation. These 'secretary' angels are the angels of the churches:
Church of Ephesus
Philadelphia of Lao dices
Man Made lower than the angels When the first man was being created: "Let us make man in our image, after our likeness ... So God created man in his own image, in the image of God he created him: male and female .. he created them" This does not mean that the first of the human race had exactly the same physical nature as the angels, for the angels were created to live forever. Adam and Eve were not made never-dying: they have sinned, and they suffered death as the punishment for it. This is why the whole human race has been dying ever since.
Psalm 8 is a Psalm in which the creation of the earth is exalted. Here we are told that man's position is lower than the angels:"What is man, that thou art mindful of him? ... For thou hast made him a little lower than the angels, and hast crowned him with glory and honor."
The quotations from the New Testament, this passage tells us that mankind - including the Lord Jesus himself - was made a little lower than the angels, "for the suffering of death." Angels do not die, but men and women. Even Jesus, the Son of God, was a mortal man, but he has now received the glory and honor which was his due when, as he said, after his resurrection, "all power m has been given in heaven and on earth "
Fallen angels (demons)
These beings, because of pride, did not return God's love. God did not destroy them, but allows them a limited range. Their condition is permanent for no creature can turn away from the perfect good of the beatific vision once he has come to appreciate, and no additional reflection could change the mind of a purely spiritual being who has turned back.
Demons are fallen angels under the command of Satan, those who are still free after the Gen. 6 affair. Satan is called the prince or ruler of all demons Matthew Luke. Demons are also called the ministers, ambassadors or Satan, Jean Luc. Satan is brilliant, an administrative genius. It has excellent organization mentioned in Eph. The Bible also makes a distinction between demonic possession and demonic influence
