Angels

"An angel can illuminate the thought and mind of man by strengthening the power of vision"
St Thomas Aquinas


Throughout history, many individuals worldwide have developed a keen interest in the possibility that angels exist in and beyond the physical world that we know. The concept of angels, demons, and other seemingly supernatural creatures mostly stem from various religious beliefs and superstitions that have been passed down from one generation to another throughout time. The validity of the existence of these spiritual beings is still nonexistent, but many believe that these beings are just as real as you and I. Many believe that there is a consistent struggle between the “good” and the “evil” occurring on and just outside the realm of our very real world. Whether or not angels actually, truly exist is still considered to be one of the world’s greatest unsolved mysteries. Throughout this section, you will be introduced to stories surrounding these beings.

Individuals that focus their study in theology hold the belief that God created the spiritual beings that we know as Angel Mysteriesangels within the first two days of the creation of the world. In the Christian Bible, angels are identified more than three hundred times as beings that are very real. We have learned through religion and the Holy Bible that angels may be considered spiritually pleasant or evil. The belief is that demons were all once angels themselves. According to Revelation 12:4, demons are identified as angels that elected to join forces with the rebellion of Satan and were cast out of the location known as Heaven forever as a result of their choice to opt for this evil and uncalled for rebellion.

Angels are considered to be very important when it comes to God and his will. The Bible depicts these spiritual beings as messengers, protectors, and even as beings that are agents specific to the judgments of the Lord. There are many historical stories that express the fact that angels have held the responsibility of leading the people of God, called upon specific people for the purpose of the Lord, delivered the various people of God, and many angels have been issued the authority to provide prophecies to the people. Angels are believed to be spiritual, but many individuals believe that they have the ability to appear to people in the form of a human. Angels are believed to not have a specific gender and they are considered to be sinless supreme beings.
