Angels are Real 2

At one time, no angels existed, there was nothing but the triune God: Father, Son and Holy Spirit. Genesis tells us that angels are created beings and that God created all creatures.

  1. Do angels have a hierarchy?

  1. Karen Wells says:

    This I would say depends on how one defines the duties given to the angels. Word Michael be considered the head angel because of his position, and Gabriel under him because of his mission. Would ministering angels be considered low class. The task of all the angels are important to the life of Christians. I would say that the angels are organized according to their duties assigned. I would also go as far to say that Michael’s task at the battle of Armageddon is by far the most important because of what it will accomplish, but would I say that he has authority over all the angels – I think not.

    Thank you Karen.

    Karen is correct. In Jude 9 the hierarchy of angels is defined when the angel Michael is called an “archangel”—a title that indicates rule or authority over other angels. He’s also called “one of the chief princes” in Daniel 10:13 According to their purpose and duties will define their “ranking”. The scripture tells us of many duties angels have. A few of the duties include being God’s messengers and Holy warriors (fighters), watching history unfold, praising and worshipping God, and being Guardian Angels – protecting and directing people on God’s behalf. They also deliver messages, assist the lonely, giving us protection and even fighting His battles we don’t even see. God dispatches the angels according to their purpose and what they are their specialty. In Mark 1:13 the angels ministered to Jesus, in Acts 12:5 – 10 they rescued Peter, and also in Isaiah 6:1 – 6
    they stood above the Lord’s throne as Isaiah saw Him high and lifted up after the death of King Uzziah. Isaiah heard the seraphim praising and worshipping the Lord….praising and worshipping the Lord.

    Yes the Word of God defines the duties given to angels. The different duties assigned to angels depend on the type of angel being assigned to a particular duty. In Mark 1:13 the angels ministered to Christ when He fasted forty days and forty nights in the wilderness, in Acts 12:5-10 Rescued Peter from prison when Peter was chained between two sleeping guards and Isaiah 6:1-6 the angels stood above the Lord’s throne as Isaiah saw Him high and lifted up after the death of King Uzziah. Isaiah heard the seraphim praising and worshipping the Lord. The angels have their own areas they are specialized in and God dispatches them accordingly. The scriptures tells us about the many roles angels have. This roles include being God’s messengers and Holy warriors (fighters), watching history unfold, praising and worshipping God, and being Guardian Angels – protecting and directing people on God’s behalf. The Bible tells us that God’s angels are delivering messages, they are with the lonely, gives us protection and even fighting His battles seen and unseen.

    Angels in the Bible appear to have a rank and order. The angel hierarchy is supported by Jude 9, when the angel Michael is called an “archangel”—a title that indicates rule or authority over other angels. He’s also called “one of the chief princes” in Daniel 10:13, and appears to lead God’s angelic army in Revelation 12: “Now war arose in heaven, Michael and his angels fighting against the dragon; and the dragon and his angels fought, but they were defeated” (Revelation 12:7–8). Paul also tells us that the Lord will return from heaven “with the archangel’s call” (1 Thessalonians 4:16). Scripture doesn’t tell us if this refers to Michael, or if there are other archangels as well.

    Thank you.

    The Bible says that angels are well-organized in ranks. Though we are not told much about their classifications, we do know that there are various orders. Among the orders of angels are those who have authority over the elements. We are told from Scripture that certain angels have authority over fire, water, and the pit, or the abyss.

    FIRE – Then another angel came out from the altar, the angel who has authority over fire, and he called with a loud voice to him who had the sharp sickle, “Use your sharp sickle and gather the clusters of the vine of the earth, for its grapes are ripe” (Revelation 14:18).

    WATER – Then I heard the angel in charge of the waters say: “You are just in these judgments, You who are and who were, the Holy One, because You have so judged (Revelation 16:5).

    PIT/ABYSS – Then I heard the angel in charge of the waters say: “You are just in these judgments, You who are and who were, the Holy One, because You have so judged (Revelation 16:5).

    This is a further testimony that angels are organized. The Bible also says that an archangel or “chief angel” exists.
