Angels are spirits, they were created on the first day of the six days, when God said, “Let there be light” (Genesis: 3), and there was light, and part of it was the angels, according to what the great angel described as “light” (1 Corinthians 10:14), as it was said about their creation “Who created His angels as spirits, and His servants as a blazing fire.” Psalm 104:4

 The book says: The angels are “groups”, that is, teams and groups, including the angels “the forces or the soldiers”, referring to them. We say about the Lord, “the God of hosts” and “the Lord of hosts”, as the prophet Micah says: I saw the Lord sitting on His throne, and all the host of heaven standing at His right hand And on his left.

 Including the archangels, who are seven.

 And St. John, the visionary, said about them in the Book of Revelation: “I saw the seven angels who stand before God.” The chief of these angels is Michael, who is called the chief of the Lord’s host. His name in Hebrew means “who is like God.” He is the archangel in general. And its prayers and praises, and a monthly feast is held for him on the twelfth day of every Coptic month, and he remembers his miracles that he performed, and some books have been written about these miracles.

 The book says: The angel Gabriel is also one of the heads of the angels, and his name is Hebrew and translated as “the power of God or the might of God.” Sometimes his name is “Gabriel.”

 The book says: There are other archangels such as Raphael and Surreal, and there are cherubim and seraphim, which are a group of angels whose mission is praise.

 The book says: The angels have a work on the part of God and a work on the part of people. From the side of God, they carry out His will with pleasure and without discussion, without using their own thinking to examine this will as humans do. Therefore, we pray in the Lord’s Prayer, saying to the Lord, “Thy will be done as it is in heaven, so it shall be done on earth,” that is, as it is executed completely and quickly in heaven by the angels, so that it may be done on earth.

 As for their work with humans, it is the good news: they carry good tidings to humans, according to the Lord’s command to them, and that includes the good tidings of the angel Gabriel to the Blessed Virgin Mary, announcing to her that the Holy Spirit will come upon her, and she will give birth to a son.

 Conveying the message: God often sends one of the angels to convey a message, for example, that the angel of the Lord appeared to Joseph in a dream, saying: “Arise, take the child and his mother, and flee to Egypt, and stay there until I tell you, because Herod is about to seek the child to destroy him.”

 Mercy, aid, and protection.. How often we call angels angels of mercy, because of their pity for humans and their provision of all the help they need, whether for individuals or groups, as it was said about the Lord’s mercy for the afflicted: “In all their distress He was afflicted, and an angel of His presence saved them” and bestowed “an angel The Lord is around those who fear Him and delivers them.” So they save people, save them and save them, and stand with them in times of distress. And the Lord also says: “He commands His angels about you, to protect you in all your ways, and on their hands they carry you, lest you hit your foot with a stone.” Hence the idea of ​​the Guardian Angel arose.
