Angels (Holy & Fallen)

Home » Doctrine, Teachings & Belief » Angels (Holy & Fallen)

The word angel means messenger. Angels are also called spirits. Jesus is above the angels. Angels were created before man. Man is lower than the angels. 2x2s believe angels are spiritual beings created by God to serve Him, and are not to be worshiped by man. A great company of angels are presently before the throne of God, and are sent as spirits to minister to believers.

The good (holy) angels, have remained obedient to God and carry out His will.

Others called fallen angels, disobeyed, fell from their holy position, and now work as enemies of God. Jude 6, And the angels which kept not their first estate, but left their own habitation, He has reserved in everlasting chains under darkness unto the judgment of the great day.

Worker Quote: God intended for us to be comforted by the help of the angels now; that they are given to help us prepare for death. ‘Are they not all ministering spirits, sent forth to minister for them who shall be heirs of salvation?’ (Hebrews 1:14). Notice these words: ‘innumerable company of angels,’ an unlimited source of help (Howard Mooney, 2009).
