Belief in Angels According to the Gospel

The angel answered, "I am Gabriel. I stand in the Presence of God, and I have been sent to speak to you and to tell you this good news." (Luke, 1:19)

For it is written: 'He will command His angels concerning you to guard you carefully; they will lift you up in their hands, so that you will not strike your foot against a stone.' [They will protect Jesus (as) from any harm.] (Luke, 4:10-11)

... God sent the angel Gabriel to... a virgin. The virgin's name was Mary. The angel went to her and said, "Greetings, you who are highly favored! The Lord is with you." Mary was greatly troubled at his words and wondered what kind of greeting this might be. But the angel said to her, "Do not be afraid, Mary, you have found favor with God. You will be with child and give birth to a son, and you are to give him the name Jesus. He will be great... How will this be," Mary asked the angel, "since I am a virgin?" The angel answered... For nothing is impossible with God.  "I am the Lord's servant," Mary answered. "May it be to me as you have said." Then the angel left her. (Luke, 1:26-38)

An angel of the Lord appeared to them... and they were terrified. But the angel said to them, "Do not be afraid. I bring you good news of great joy that will be for all the people..." (Luke, 2:9-11)

Jesus said to him, "Away from me, satan! For it is written: 'Worship the Lord your God, and serve Him only. Then the devil left him, and angels came and attended him.'" (Matthew, 4:10-11)

As the weeds are pulled up and burned in the fire, so it will be at the end of the age... God will send out His angels, and they will weed out of His kingdom everything that causes sin and all who do evil. They will throw them into the fiery furnace... (Matthew, 13:40-42)

This is how it will be at the end of the age. The angels will come and separate the wicked from the righteous and throw them into the fiery furnace, where there will be weeping and gnashing of teeth. "Have you understood all these things?" Jesus asked. (Matthew, 13:49-50)

He [God] will send his angels with a loud trumpet call, and they will gather his elect from the four winds, from one end of the heavens to the other. (Matthew, 24:31; Mark, 13:26-27)

No one knows about that day or hour, not even the angels in heaven, nor Jesus, but only the God. (Matthew, 24:36)

 Jesus said to him... "Do you think I cannot call on God, and He will at once put at my disposal more than twelve legions of angels?" (Matthew, 26:52-53; Mark, 13:32)

... For an angel of the Lord came down from heaven... His appearance was like lightning, and his clothes were white as snow. The guards were so afraid of him that they shook and became like dead men. The angel said to the women, "Do not be afraid"... (Matthew, 28:2-5)

But after he had considered this, an angel of the Lord appeared to him in a dream and said, "... Do not be afraid... She will give birth to a son, and you are to give him the name Jesus..." (Matthew, 1:20-21)

When Joseph woke up, he did what the angel of the Lord had commanded him... (Matthew, 1:24)

When they had gone, an angel of the Lord appeared to Joseph in a dream. "Get up," he said, "take the child and his mother and escape to Egypt. Stay there until I tell you, for Herod is going to search for the child to kill him." (Matthew, 2:13)

After Herod died, an angel of the Lord appeared in a dream to Joseph in Egypt and said, "Get up, take the child and his mother and go to the land of Israel, for those who were trying to take the child's life are dead." (Matthew, 2:19-20)

... All the assembled worshipers were praying outside. Then an angel of the Lord appeared to him... When Zechariah saw him, he was startled and was gripped with fear. But the angel said to him: "Do not be afraid, Zechariah; your prayer has been heard. Your wife Elizabeth will bear you a son, and you are to give him the name John. He will be a joy and delight to you, many will rejoice because of his birth, for he will be great in the Sight of the Lord. He is never to take wine or other fermented drink, and he will be filled with the God's Spirit [He will be of a morality that pleases God] even from birth. Many of the people of Israel will he bring back to the Lord their God... Zechariah asked the angel, "How can I be sure of this? I am an old man and my wife is well along in years." The angel answered, "I am Gabriel. I stand in the Presence of God, and I have been sent to speak to you and to tell you this good news... And now you will be silent and not able to speak until the day this happens... (Luke, 1:10-20)

Suddenly an angel of the Lord appeared and a light shone in the cell. He struck Peter on the side and woke him up. "Quick, get up!" he said, and the chains fell off Peter's wrists. Then the angel said to him, "Put on your clothes and sandals." And Peter did so. "Wrap your cloak around you and follow me," the angel told him. Peter followed him out of the prison, but he had no idea that what the angel was doing was really happening; he thought he was seeing a vision... Then Peter came to himself and said, "Now I know without a doubt that the Lord sent His angel and rescued me from Herod's clutches and from everything the Jewish people were anticipating." (Acts, 12:7-11)

Then I saw another angel flying in midair, and he had the eternal Gospel to proclaim to those who live on the earth—to every nation, tribe, language and people [He was conveying God's revelation to mankind]... He said in a loud voice, "Fear God and give Him glory, because the hour of His judgment has come. Worship Him Who made the heavens, the earth, the sea and the springs of water." (Revelation, 14:6-7)

Now Christ has gone to heaven. He is seated in the place of honor next to God, and all the angels and authorities and powers accept his authority. (1 Peter, 3:22)

... They came and told us that they had seen a vision of angels, who said he was alive. (Luke, 24:23)

A holy angel told him to have you come to his house so that he could hear what you have to say. (Acts, 10:22)

... He told us how he had seen an angel appear in his house and say, 'Send to Joppa for Simon who is called Peter. He will bring you a message through which you and all your household will be saved.' (Acts, 11:13-14)

On the appointed day Herod, wearing his royal robes, sat on his throne and delivered a public address to the people. They shouted... Immediately, because Herod did not give praise to God, an angel of the Lord struck him down [took his life] and he was eaten by worms and died. (Acts, 12:21-23)

For it seems to me that God has put us apostles on display at the end of the procession, like men condemned to die in the arena. We have been made a spectacle to the whole universe, to angels as well as to men. (1 Corinthians, 4:9)

If I speak in the tongues of men and of angels, but have not love, I am only a resounding gong or a clanging cymbal. (1 Corinthians, 13:1)

This will happen when... Jesus is revealed from heaven [descend from God's Sight] in blazing fire with his powerful angels. (2 Thessalanians, 1:7)

I charge you, in the Sight of God and Christ Jesus and the elect angels, to keep these instructions without partiality, and to do nothing out of favoritism. Do not be hasty in the laying on of hands, and do not share in the sins of others. Keep yourself pure. (1 Timothy, 5:21-22)

For if the message spoken by angels was binding, and every violation and disobedience received its just punishment, how shall we escape if we ignore such a great salvation? (Hebrews, 2:2-3)

... Yet even angels, although they are stronger and more powerful, do not bring slanderous accusations against such beings in the Presence of the Lord. (2 Peter, 2:11)
