What is an angel?
Both the Hebrew mal·´akh´ and the Greek ag´ge·los literally mean “messenger.” When spirit messengers are indicated, the words are translated “angels,” but if the reference definitely is to humans, the rendering is “messengers.” (Ge 16:7; 32:3; Jas 2:25; Re 22:8;) Whether human or angelic messengers are meant can be determined by the context. At Isaiah 63:9, for example, God’s “personal messenger” is evidently his angel since this messenger saved the Israelites. (Also see Ex 14:19, 20)
Angels are sometimes termed as spirits. Spirits are invisible and powerful and they make their abode “in the heavens.” (Mr 12:25; 1Co 15:44, 50) They are also termed “sons of the true God,” “morning stars,” and “holy myriads” (or “holy ones”).—Job 1:6; 2:1; 38:7; De 33:2.
