Angels in eternal chains

Classification of Angels Angels not only carry messages to people (Gen. 18:9–16; Judg. 13:2–24; Luke 1:13, 30; 2:8–15), they also carry out God’s will as He directs them (Ps. 148:2–5; Col. 1:16). The Bible offers little description of angelic messengers because the focus is on the message and not the messenger. Angels also performed tasks as mediators (Acts 7:53; Gal. 3:19; Rev. 1:1; 10:1).

Angels also serve God in His heavenly court. Titles such as “sons of God” (Gen. 6:2–4; Job 1:6; 2:1), “holy ones” (Ps. 89:5; Dan. 4:13), and “heavenly hosts” (Luke 2:13) identify angels as celestial beings who worship God (Luke 2:13–15; Rev. 19:1–3), attend His throne (Rev. 5:11; 7:11), and make up God’s army (1 Sam. 1:11; 1 Chron. 12:22).

Angels are sometimes identified as winged creatures—the cherubim and seraphim. These angels appear in Ezekiel’s visions (1:4–28; 10:1–22) and in Isa. 6:2–6. Cherubim are primarily guards/attendants to God’s throne, whereas seraphim attend God’s throne and offer praises to Him.
