The Word “Angel” actually comes from the Greek word aggelos, which means “messenger.” The matching Hebrew word mall’s has the same meaning.
Sometimes the Bible uses these words for human beings:
-ordinary people who Carry Messages (Job 1:14; Luke 7:24; 9:52)
-prophets (Isaiah 42:19; Malachi 3:1)
-priests (Malachi 2:7)
-church leaders (Rev. 1:20)
Sometimes, it speaks figuratively of things or events as “messengers”…
-the pillar of cloud (Exodus 14:19)
-pestilence or plagues (2 Samuel 24:16-17)
But it usually describes the whole range of spirits whom God has created, including both good and evil angels, and special categories such as cherubim, seraphim, and the ARCHANGEL.
Angels are mentioned at least 108 times in the Old Testament and 165 times in the New Testament (Chafer, Systematic Theology, II, 3). Hence, there is ample information available in Scripture to allow us too build a foundation for our knowledge of Angelic Beings…
You can bet that they are EVERPRESENT.
