Twenty-four Roles of Holy Angels:

  1. Warn man.
  2. Administer wrath.
  3. Instruct other angels.
  4. Blow trumpets.
  5. Pour vials.
  6. Worship God/Jesus.
  7. Witness/testimony to Christ.
  8. Signify prophecy.
  9. Refuse to be worshipped.
  10. Battle Satan and fallen angels.
  11. Loosen fallen angels from imprisonment.
  12. Chain Satan in bottomless pit.
  13. Throw Antichrist, False Prophet into lake of fire
  14. Prophecy.
  15. Command nature, birds, fire, water, weather, winds.
  16. Give offerings to God (prayers of saints).
  17. Given a key to open the bottomless pit.
  18. Fellow servant.
  19. Proclaim/Declare/Announce.
  20. Rejoice.
  21. Command John.
  22. Proclaim the Gospel.
  23. Measure.
  24. Command demonic creatures.

Commentary: In most cases, it is clear that an appointed angel is making the statement or proclamation. This is one of the roles or duties (among many) of selected angels throughout the Bible. Why would angels be making statements or proclamations? They are instructed and authorized to do so. They proclaim Christ’s rulership and reign on earth. They proclaim blessings on those martyred during the combined Tribulation period. They identify attributes of the Lord God Almighty. They proclaim the righteousness of his judgements. They issue a command and warning to people in Babylon. They instruct all men to praise God. They proclaim that God loves his people and wants to be with them and dwell with them. In the most simplest of words, they communicate directly with mankind, on behalf of the Triune God. Interestingly, some Holy angels seem to have a role of interceding with fallen angels, to fulfill the will of God. Michael and his angels war against Satan and his angels. A Holy angel grabs and chains Satan in the bottomless pit. An angel lets loose the four fallen angels at the Euphrates River. Christ gives one of his angels the key to the bottomless pit in order to let loose the demonic locusts. Holy angels throw the antichrist and false prophet into the lake of fire.

Some Holy angels have a role of interceding in nature, on behalf of God. They have some degree of control over the weather, water, fire, winds, animal kingdom, sun, moon and earth. With the exception of Christ opening the first seven (7) book seals, Holy angels are directly involved in administering God’s will through the seven (7) trumpet and seven (7) vial plagues wich affect the earth and nature. For the diligent Bible students among you, notice that the Holy Angels most prominent role is to declare/pronounce or to proclaim, in addition to providing prophecy. These two angelic functions are mentioned more times throughout the book of Revelation, than any other angelic function. This is not to say that these functions are more important than other functions. Most (if not all) Holy angels seem to have one (or several) role or job functions in the administration of God’s creation. However, in the context of the book of Revelation being mostly prophetic, it makes logical sense that most angelic involvement would be communicative and prophetic in nature. It is believed that a class of holy angels have a specific role of being messengers or communicators with mankind, when it is the will the God for them to do so. Discerning students will also notice that angels also share in the worship of Christ (The Lamb) and of God. Holy angels are very busy creations functioning on earth and in heaven, and most people think that angels just sit on clouds playing harps.

Lastly, it is interesting to note that John, the Apostle, one of Christ’s key Apostle’s was twice inclined to worship a Holy angel who was communicating with him. The Holy angel sternly told John not to worship him, but to instead worship God. If one of the holiest, most obedient of Christ’s servants was inclined to worship a Holy angel, what would this suggest about evil men (who have no restraint) living during the Tribulation period worshipping evil, fallen angels who are satanically motivated to deceive them? Could these fallen angels have a part to play in the “Great Deception” that God allows to occur on earth during the Tribulation and Great Tribulation?

Both Fallen and Holy Angels in our midst? One scientist explains why the Bible supports extra-dimensional visitors and messengers.

Astronomer and physicist makes case angels have existed throughout eternity as God’s messengers

By Lauren Green | Fox News

The White House press secretary might make fun of aliens being in our midst — but according to one scientist, the Bible gives clear evidence that they’ve been operating in our world since time began. 

And they have a name we all know. They’re called angels.

For decades, scientists have searched the cosmos looking for life on other planets. 

The $100 million SETI telescopes (Search for Extra-Terrestrial Intelligence) were created for that purpose.

But what if those extraterrestrials were already here, not launched in weather balloons or in UFOs, but in the world in which we live?  

Astronomer and physicist Dr. Hugh Ross makes a convincing case that angels are beings that have existed throughout eternity as God’s messengers — and that they operate like any beings would who are not confined to our “space-time dimensions.” 

Scientists know there are more dimensions than humans can access.

Ross writes in Salvo magazine, “According to the Bible, these creatures differ from humans in that they are not constrained by either the known laws of physics or the known space-time dimensions. Rather, they exist in a realm distinct from the universe, yet have been granted power to enter the human realm for brief episodes — either in physical or nonphysical form.”

On our “Lighthouse Faith” podcast, Ross, founder and director of the nonprofit Reasons To Believe, expands on this scientific analysis of why it’s perfectly acceptable to believe in the existence of angelic beings. 

He says, “If you’ve got a causal agent beyond space and time that created the universe, that causal agent could create other things outside the universe and even grants the power to come into the universe and enter the human realm. So it’s certainly scientifically plausible.”

In the Bible, angels are God’s messengers and ground soldiers, if you will, carrying on God’s business. 

There are three different types: Cherubim, Seraphim and then “Living Creatures.”

The Cherubim guarded the entrance to the Garden of Eden after Adam and Eve were expelled for disobeying God.

The Seraphim were only mentioned once in the Bible as the beings who “continually worship the Lord saying, ‘Holy, holy, holy is the Lord of hosts; the whole earth is full of his glory’” (Isaiah 6:3).

The “Living Creatures” can appear as animals or humans. 

The Book of Hebrews says, “Do not forget to show hospitality to strangers, for by so doing some people have shown hospitality to angels without knowing it.”

There’s a hierarchy to the angels as well. Archangels are the only angels with names. 

Gabriel, probably the most well known, came to Mary to tell her she would be with child and give birth to a son who would be known as Immanuel, God with us (Luke 1:26).

The apocalyptic verses in the Bible also predict that an archangel will herald Jesus’ return (Revelation).

But even without proper names, angels have done a lot of spiritual heavy lifting in the Bible. Scholars believe the “commander of the army of the Lord” (Joshua 6:14), whom Joshua encounters on the eve of Israel’s battle in Jericho, was an angel.

Angels also cared for Jesus after he was tempted by Satan in the wilderness (Matthew 4:11).

And speaking of Satan, he is a fallen angel, Lucifer, whom Jesus speaks of cryptically, saying, “I saw Satan fall like lightning from heaven” (Luke 10:18). 

Jesus’s words tell us two things: One, that Lucifer, once the angel of light, was cast out of heaven for his pride and his unwillingness to serve God. And two, it tells of Jesus’ pre-existence, before he was actually born in the manger in Bethlehem.

But even modern-day people talk about seeing angels and experiencing their presence. 

In artist Anne H. Neilson’s book “Angels in Our Midst,” woven in among her ethereal paintings of angels are stories that people have told her about angels who have surrounded them and helped them. 

She also describes her own sadness after her stepfather’s unsuccessful surgery. He retained consciousness long enough to point at something in his hospital room. The family didn’t know what he wanted.  

When it appeared death was imminent, she writes, “I got a call the next day to head back: We all needed to be there. I was in Charlotte, North Carolina, traveling to Charleston, South Carolina. It was the longest drive I think I have ever taken.

She went on, “I was shaking and tears were streaming down my face as I would get updates from family members on his condition: I just wanted him to hang on until I got there to tell him good-bye. All of a sudden, still an hour away from Charleston, this amazing peace overcame me. I felt like the Lord was telling me: ‘He was pointing to angels — angels were surrounding him yesterday and he was trying to tell you everything is OK.’”

Neilson writes that she was filled with “the peace that passes all understanding.” She got to the hospital “just as he flew to heaven into Jesus’ arms.” 

Angels have also occupied a lot of our imagination in entertainment. 

“Touched by an Angel” was a popular TV show that ran for nine seasons on CBS. It told how angels, who looked like just plain people, were helping earthlings overcome life’s many struggles, letting them know that God is with them.  A movie “Angels in Our Midst” was also released in 2007.

Even in the classical world, angels figure largely. In the German opera “Hansel and Gretel,” the two lost and frightened children pray in the evening for angels to come and guide them and watch over them.

Sure of an encounter

Dr. Hugh Ross also is sure he had an encounter with an angel once that took the form of a German shepherd

He had gone to visit a five-acre estate and it was dark. But a large dog was at the gate and led him 100 yards to the house.

“And when I got to the front door,” said Ross, “the man said, ‘How did you get here?’ I said, ‘Well, your dog guided me to the front door.’ And he said, ‘Didn’t you see the sign on the gate? It was well lit. It’s a big sign, and it was warning you that there is a trained attack dog on the premises.'”

Ross explained that not only did the dog not bark, it didn’t attack. 

It only meekly guided them to the house, where it turns out the man and his family had been praying for guidance.

Ross said, “The young man that was with me that evening — he said, ‘This is just like the Book of Acts [in the Bible]. God blinded us to the sign, and [an] angel took control of that dog and got us to that door because of that man and his family’s prayers.”

Whether people believe in angels or not has no bearing on whether they actually exist. 

But Ross said that science has opened a door to the possibility that our fantasies and heartfelt desires are tapped into a realm outside the “space-time dimensions” where angels trod.

But how can they call on him (Jesus Christ) to save them unless they believe in him (Jesus Christ)? And how can they believe in him (Jesus Christ) if they have never heard about him (Jesus Christ)? And how can they hear about him (Jesus Christ) unless someone tells them?” —Romans 10:14

Jesus Christ’s Offer of Salvation:

The ABCs of Salvation through Jesus Christ (the Lamb)

. . . “As it is written, There is none righteous, no, not one.” (Romans 3:10).

. . . “If we say that we have no sin, we deceive ourselves, and the truth is not in us.” (1 John 1:8).

B. Believe Jesus is Lord. Believe that Jesus Christ is who He claimed to be; that He was both fully God and fully man and that we are saved through His death, burial, and resurrection. Put your trust in Him as your only hope of salvation. Become a son or daughter of God by receiving Christ.

. . . “That whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have eternal life. For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life. For God sent not his son into the world to condemn the world; but that the world through him might be saved. (John 3:15-17). For whosoever shall call upon the name of the Lord shall be saved.” (Romans 10:13).

C. Call upon His name, Confess with your heart and with your lips that Jesus is your Lord and Savior.

. . . “That if thou shalt confess with thy mouth the Lord Jesus, and shalt believe in thine heart that God hath raised him from the dead, thou shalt be saved. For with the heart man believeth unto righteousness; and with the mouth confession is made unto salvation.” (Romans 10:9-10).

. . . “If we say that we have no sin, we deceive ourselves, and the truth is not in us. If we confess our sins, he is faithful and just to forgive us our sins, and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness. If we say that we have not sinned, we make him a liar, and his word is not in us.” (John 1:8-10).

. . . “And he is the propitiation for our sins: and not for ours only, but also for the sins of the whole world. (John 2:2).

. . . “In this was manifested the love of god toward us, because that God sent his only begotten Son into the world, that we might live through him. And we have seen and do testify that the Father sent the Son to be the Saviour of the world. Whosoever shall confess that Jesus is the Son of God, God dwelleth in him, and he in God.” (1 John 4:9, 14-15).

. . . “But God commendeth his love toward us, in that, while we were yet sinners, Christ died for us. Much more then, being now justified by his blood, we shall be saved from wrath through him. For if, when we were enemies, we were reconciled to God by the death of his Son, much more, being reconciled, we shall be saved by his life.” (Romans 5:8-10).

. . . “For the wages of sin is death; but the gift of God is eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord.” (Romans 6:23).

. . . “Jesus saith unto them, I am the way, the truth, and the life, no man cometh unto the Father, but by me.” (John 14:6).

. . . “For I am not ashamed of the gospel of Christ: for it is the power of God unto salvation to everyone that believeth.” (Romans 1:16).

. . . “Neither is there salvation in any other: for there is none other name under heaven given among men, whereby we must be saved.” (Acts: 4:12).

. . . “Who will have all men to be saved, and to come unto the knowledge of the truth for there is one God, and one mediator between God and men, the man Christ Jesus.” (1 Timothy 2:4-6).

. . . “For God did not appoint us to suffer wrath but to receive salvation through our Lord Jesus Christ.” (1 Thessalonians 5:9).

. . . “But as many as received him, to them gave the power to become the sons of God, even to them that believe on his name.” (John 1:12).

Much more then, being now justified by his blood, we shall be saved from wrath through him. For if, when we were enemies, we were reconciled to God by the death of his Son, much more, being reconciled, we shall be saved by his life.”

Romans 12:19. Dearly beloved, avenge not yourselves, but rather give place unto wrath: for it is written, Vengeance is mine; I will repay, saith the Lord.

1 Thessalonians 1:10. And to wait for his Son from heaven, whom he raised from the dead, even Jesus, which delivered us from the wrath to come.

1 Thessalonians 5:9. For God hath not appointed us to wrath, but to obtain salvation by our Lord Jesus Christ,
