Do angels exist? The Bible says they do. According to Hebrews 1:7, angels are beings made of spirit and do not have a physical body. In the Bible, they alternately appear as spiritual beings, humans, or invisible. They are also immortal and free from death, according to Mark 12:25 and Luke 20:34-36. 

They appear in several stories in the Bible, and they play some very key roles. From these stories, we can learn a lot about God’s plan for our salvation.

We can also identify some of their main duties, all of which serve to guide humankind toward God.

There are more than 5,000 promises in the Bible.

Angels Praise and Serve God

Angels exist, as we do, to give glory to God and bow to His voice. Psalm 103 says:

“Bless the Lord, O you his angels, you mighty ones who do his word, hearkening to the voice of his word!”

Psalm 103:20

Isaiah 6:3 tells us the same:

“And one called to another and said: ‘Holy, holy, holy is the Lord of hosts; the whole earth is full of his glory.’”

Isaiah 6:3

Most prominent is the nativity story in Luke 2, where angels give glory to God for the arrival of His son.

Angels show us that, as created beings, one of our primary roles is to praise God unceasingly.

Angels Enforce God’s Laws

Angels also do God’s will, which means that they help enforce His laws and guard His sacred places. From them, we can learn that God’s law is sacred, and things that are holy should remain so. This is shown in Genesis 3:24, when an angel is assigned to guard the gates of Eden with a “flaming sword” after Adam and Eve are driven out.

Angels Deliver God’s Messages

Angels appear prominently in the Bible as God’s messengers. They help communicate God’s love, His plan, and His will to us. The angels who heralded the birth of Jesus on Christmas Eve are a perfect example of this (Luke 2:8-14). The angel Gabriel also announced to the Virgin Mary that she would bear the Messiah, the Son of God (Luke 1:26-39).

This tells us that angels are a critical part of God’s relationship with us. These are among the most important events to happen in the Bible (in all of history, really!), and God sent heavenly messengers to make sure the people involved were paying attention.

Helpers and Protectors

Angels are also helpers. It’s amazing, really—God’s love for us is so deep and complete that He sends us heavenly helpers to assist and give aid when we are in trouble. No danger humans face can escape God. There are numerous examples in the Bible of angels rescuing humans from all kinds of predicaments.

Angels protected Daniel from certain death trapped in a den full of lions (Daniel 6:22). An angel made sure Elijah had enough food for his journey of 40 days and 40 nights (1 Kings 5-8). An angel also rescued Peter from prison (Acts 12-7-10).

Perhaps most importantly, an angel saved the life of the Christ child by appearing to Joseph in a dream and urging him to flee with Mary and the baby to Egypt (Matthew 2:13–23).

In Psalm 91, God promises that we will always have this protection:

For he will command his angels concerning you to guard you in all your ways; they will lift you up in their hands, so that you will not strike your foot against a stone.

Psalm 91:11-12

Angels Fight Evil

Angels also exist to fight for the kingdom of God. They wage spiritual war against the forces of Satan.

DO YOU WANT TO BE NOTIFIED?

When we publish something new, you will be the first one to know about it.

In Revelation 12:7-9, the Archangel Michael defeats the dragon in battle. An angel also casts the devil into a bottomless pit in Revelation 20:1-3.

This reminds us to be vigilant against attacks from the enemy, and against sin.

Angels Remind Us of God’s Truths

The actions of the angels and their intercession in human lives teach us that we are never alone. Throughout the Bible, angels never fail to serve God and guide His people. Let us use as an example and do the same.

We are not paid for the work we do; the money is not our motivation and doesn't drive us in our endeavours working with (and for) the poor from the edges of our society. But of course, without financial resources, we could not implement our goals and activities.

Our website and all that we offer you for free actually cost us. A global missionary journey of our volunteers, Silva and Nace, also costs. There are expenses of transport that we pay regularly from our account - the money that depends on our donors, sponsors, supporters and all the others who want to contribute their share to our mission.

Hence, your donation is not a gift for the benefits of our members and volunteers. It is entirely spent to develop new projects and to cover our regular expenses: website maintenance, accounting and travel expenses for our volunteers.

We know that you care. So we encourage you to support our work and make it possible for us to help the poorest in this World.
