Classes of Angels.


 
For by Him all things were created that are in heaven and that are on earth, visible and invisible, whether thrones or dominions or principalities or powers. All things were created through Him and for Him.
Colossians 1:16

Ephesians 6:12 [ http://iz3.me/ohqU1z3Fe1A1 ]

From the playground to corporations to governments, humans create structures of authority and responsibility. That tendency must have something to do with being created in the image of God. Even His angels seem to be organized!

Listen to Today’s Radio Message [ http://iz3.me/phqU1z3Fe1A1 ]

We get glimpses in Scripture of titles, assignments, and classes of angelic beings. There are cherubim (Genesis 3:24) and seraphim (Isaiah 6:2-7), presumably angelic beings. There are principalities and powers who have authority and dominion (Colossians 1:16). There is a ruling angel, an “archangel” named Michael (Daniel 12:1; Jude 1:9) who seems to have responsibility for the protection of Israel (Daniel 10:13; 12:1). And a primary messenger, or ambassador, named Gabriel (Luke 1:11-20, 26-38). It is no surprise, then, that evil angels also have ranks and designations (Ephesians 6:12).

Give thanks today that there are also “ministering spirits” sent to serve those who believe (Hebrews 1:14).

Angels we have heard on high, sweetly singing o’er the plains. And the mountains in reply, echo back their joyous strains.
