Summary: This is the 2nd study in the study "Angelology".
NATURE OF ANGELS
Our last study looked at the origin of angels. Angels were created by God before the creation of man. Angels were created to glorify God and to serve God. As we continue in this study, let us look at the nature of angels.
Angels Are Spirit Beings
Hebrews 1:7, 14
While on occasion angels do manifest themselves, their normal practice is to remain invisible. The main reason for this is to prevent people from worshipping them.
Angels Are Innumerable
God knows how many angels He created but angels are uncountable to mankind.
Angels Possess Separate And Individual Personalities
Angels have the three necessary features required of personality.
Angels Are Superior To Mankind
This is because of Adam’s fall.
1. They are stronger than men.
2. They are smarter than men.
3. They are swifter then men.
Angels Are Inferior To God
1. Angels are not omnipresent.
2. Angels are not omnipotent.
3. Angels are not omniscient.
