Topic: Angels

Home Page: Quantum Bible Study

The meaning of the word “angel” is “messenger”. Angels are messengers from the spiritual world.

Angels appear and disappear, sent by God bringing messages to men – even it it means fighting against principalities and powers, the enemies of God.

Can men who have died be angels? Consider the following…

  • Sometime scripture uses “saints” and sometimes it uses “angels”. An example is found in:
    • Jude 1:14 NKJV Now Enoch, the seventh from Adam, prophesied about these men also, saying, “Behold, the Lord comes with ten thousands of His saints,

      Jude 1:14 TLB Enoch, who lived seven generations after Adam, knew about these men and said this about them: “See, the Lord is coming with millions of his holy ones.

      Jude 1:14 OJB But also it was about these [men] that Enoch, in the seventh [generation] from Adam, prophesied, saying, “Hinei, Adonoi comes with His ten thousands of malachim (angels)
      Malachim” is a plural form from Hebrew (מלאך, mal’ach), and means “angels” or “messengers.”
  • Is Daniel the angel in heaven speaking to John, the writer of the book of Revelation?
    • John is in the Spirit in the book of Revelation (and we know the book of Daniel parallels the book of Revelation). He is touched by an angel and he falls down to worship the angel but the angel chides John and tells him: DO NOT DO THAT:
      • Revelation 19:10 And I fell at his feet to worship him. But he said to me, “See that you do not do that! I am your fellow servant, and of your brethren who have the testimony of Jesus. Worship God! For the testimony of Jesus is the spirit of prophecy.”
      • Revelation 22:9 But he said to me, “See that you do not do it. For I am your fellow servant; and of your brothers, the Prophets; and of those who keep the words of this Book. Worship God.”

        The identity of the angel includes the following:

        1) He is in heaven
        2) He is a fellow servant
        3) He is of “of John’s brethren” (a Jew)
        4) He has the testimony of Jesus
        5) He was a Prophet
        6) Conclusion: The angel is Daniel.

Below: An interesting pattern regarding angels appearing in twos, which seemingly has no specific meaning:

Two angels (called Cherubim) guarded the entrance to the Garden of Eden.
Two angels came to Sodom in the evening to see Lot
Two angels were at the tomb when Jesus rose from the dead.
Two angels are shown on the mercy seat of the Ark of the Covenant.
Two angels fought against the prince of Persia and the prince of Greece.
Two angels stood above the throne of God in Isaiah 6:2-3
Two angels fought against the prince of Persia and the prince of Greece in Daniel 10:12

Not in every instance do angels work in twos; Gabriel was the solitary angel who delivered a message from God to the virgin Mary.

Michael, specifically, is the angel assigned to the Jews.

Daniel 12:1 “At that time Michael shall stand up, the great prince who stands watch over the sons of your people (Daniel’s people, the Jews);
