Learn about Angelology part 1:
When holy angels are spoken of in the Word, it cannot, as we believe, refer to a separate order of creation from man.
First. We have no account of their creation, as a separate class or order.
We have a definite account of the creation of man, as the origin of the human family; of beasts, fish, fowls, and all that have life, as recorded in Genesis; but no record of angels. Indeed, I think such a creation as a separate order from men, cannot be found in the Bible.
Second. We have no satisfactory evidence of the existence of a separate order of angels before the creation of man.
That the devil, or Satan, existed before, and became the malicious deceiver and destroyer of the human race, will not be denied by any who have a reverence for the Word of God. There are too many passages of Scripture to gainsay or deny it.
As to when and how he was created and fell, the Scriptures are either silent, or at most, leave them to be inferred. These things do not particularly concern us.
Third. There is another creation brought to light in the Word, that most marvelously honors and glorifies God, bringing to view His essential character and attributes, not of wisdom and creative power only, but of love, mercy, justice, benevolence; and, at the same time stoops down and takes hold of fallen men and women, and lifts them to an exalted height of dignity and glory.
It is to this creation, that, we believe, the Scriptures allude when speaking of “holy angels.” Other names are applied to the same, according to their character, and special service in which they are engaged; as “holy ones,” or “Saints,” “Sons of God;” “Servants of God, and of the Lord Jesus Christ,” “Holy Men of God,” “Prophets,” “Apostles,” etc.
