View Full Version : Angels Messengers

April 8th, 2017, 09:10 PM

The Bible uses the terms מלאך אלהים (melakh Elohiym; messenger of God), מלאך יהוה (melakh Adonai; messenger of the Lord), בני אלוהים (b'nai Elohiym; sons of God) and הקודשים (ha-qodeshim; the holy ones) to refer to beings traditionally interpreted as angels. The word "angel" in English (from Old English and German Engel), French (from Old French angele), Spanish, and many other Romance languages are derived from the Latin angelus, itself derived from Koine Greek: άγγελος, angelos, "messenger" (pl. άγγελοι)

Angels or Messengers

Colossians 2
18 Do not let anyone who delights in false humility and the worship of angels disqualify you. Such a person also goes into great detail about what they have seen; they are puffed up with idle notions by their unspiritual mind.

Acts 23:8 (http://redirect.viglink.com?key=bbb516d91daee20498798694a 42dd559&u=https%3A//biblia.com/bible/niv/Acts%252023.8)
(The Sadducees say that there is no resurrection, and that there are neither (angels / messengers) nor spirits, but the Pharisees believe all these things.)

Hebrews 2:16 (http://redirect.viglink.com?key=bbb516d91daee20498798694a 42dd559&u=https%3A//biblia.com/bible/niv/Heb%25202.16)
For surely it is not (angels / messengers) he helps, but Abrahamís descendants.

Hebrews 12:22 (http://redirect.viglink.com?key=bbb516d91daee20498798694a 42dd559&u=https%3A//biblia.com/bible/niv/Heb%252012.22)
But you have come to Mount Zion, to the city of the living God, the heavenly Jerusalem. You have come to thousands upon thousands of (angels / messengers) in joyful assembly,

Hebrews 13:2 (http://redirect.viglink.com?key=bbb516d91daee20498798694a 42dd559&u=https%3A//biblia.com/bible/niv/Heb%252013.2)
Do not forget to show hospitality to strangers, for by so doing some people have shown hospitality to (angels / messengers) without knowing it.

Angel in (Hebrew: מַלְאָךְ‎ malakh, plural malakhim) is a messenger of God, an envoy or messenger in general who appears throughout the Hebrew Bible, Rabbinic literature, and traditional Jewish liturgy.


Hebrew "mal'akh" (מַלְאָךְ) is the standard Hebrew Bible word for "messenger", both human and divine, though it is less used for human messengers in Modern Hebrew. In the King James Bible the noun malakh is rendered as "angel" 111 times, "messenger" 98 times, and "ambassadors" 4 times. The noun derives from the verbal consonantal root (ל-א-ך), meaning "to send". This root is attested in Hebrew only in this noun, and in the noun "Melakha" (מְלָאכָה), meaning "work". The term "Mal'akh" therefore simply means one who is sent, even when applied to humans; for instance, "Mal'akh" is the root of the name of the prophet Malachi, whose name means "my messenger".

Scholar Michael D. Coogan notes that it is only in the late books that the terms "come to mean the benevolent semidivine beings familiar from later mythology and art."

Angels are found in Sumerian, Babylonian, Persian, Egyptian and Greek writings. It is well known that ancient Sumerian texts predating the Hebrew bible included the idea of the existence of angels.

Though maybe called different names, benevolant spirit beings similar to angels can also be found within other religions, mythologies, and lore. Hinduism has avatars, Buddhism has devas and bodhisattvas, the Greeks wrote about daimons, and other spirit beings similar to angels, such as guardian spirits and spirit guides, which have been taught by tribal cultures. All of these have similar functions as helpful spirit messengers, or angels.

Numbers 21:5 (http://redirect.viglink.com?key=bbb516d91daee20498798694a 42dd559&u=https%3A//biblia.com/bible/niv/Num%252021.5). they spoke against God and against Moses, and said, "Why have you brought us up out of Egypt to die in the desert? There is no bread! There is no water! And we detest this miserable food!"
6. Then the LORD sent venomous snakes among them; they bit the people and many Israelites died.

Jude 5 (http://redirect.viglink.com?key=bbb516d91daee20498798694a 42dd559&u=https%3A//biblia.com/bible/niv/Jude%25205). Though you already know all this, I want to remind you that the Lord delivered his people out of Egypt, but later destroyed those who did not believe. 6. And the [angels / messengers] who did not keep their positions of authority but abandoned their own homeóthese he has kept in darkness, bound with everlasting chains for judgment on the great Day.

The trans-literal is "messenger" or "messenger of God".

#1. The word-s messenger-s is translated as Angel-s. #2. Messenger-s can be a person-s from the Kingdom of God or a person-s born here. #3. Wings symbolizes status and are not literal. #4. The messenger-s who have 4 wings here on earth are the same person-s who later have 6 wings in the Kingdom of God. Seraph-s are Seraphim-s which means, "Beings of Fire." It is parabolic for "Beings of Judgement." Cherub-s are Cherubim-s which means "Highest Guardian or Spiritual Beings." The Seraphim in Isaiah 6 are the same person-s in Revelation, translated as "Beasts" or Creature-s. The correct translation should be "Living Being-s."
