Verses About Angels In The Bible

The Bible is filled with references to angels, their appearance and their deeds. In this post we’re going to explore what the Bible says about these heavenly beings and how we can learn more about them.

Section 1: The Biblical Definition Of An Angel

There are many different types of angels mentioned in the Bible, but they all share one common trait: they are created beings who serve God. Angels have no free will because they do not have a sin nature like humans do, but they do sometimes choose their own path for various reasons (discussed below). Their bodies are incorruptible so they cannot die or be harmed by any physical means…

Genesis 3:24

In Genesis 3:24, God spoke to the serpent and said, “Cursed are you among all animals and creatures of the earth; on your belly you will go, and dust you will eat all the days of your life.” When this happened, Adam and Eve were cast out of the Garden of Eden. They had not yet been allowed to eat from every tree in it—only one tree which they had been told not to touch (Genesis 2:17).

As punishment for defying God’s commandment not to eat fruit from this particular tree, Adam was cursed by God with painful childbirth (Genesis 3:16). His wife would be called “woman” because she would give birth in pain (Genesis 3:16). She would also desire her husband’s companionship but he would rule over her (Genesis 3:16-17). In addition to these changes that affected him directly, man was also required by his Creator never again enter into a relationship with Him or His angels (Genesis 3:23-24)

Exodus 23:20-23

  • “The angel of God will encamp around those who fear him, and he will deliver them. Behold, the eye of the Lord is upon those who fear him, upon those who hope in his steadfast love.” (Psalm 33:18-19)
  • “A Psalm of David. The LORD is my shepherd; I shall not want. He makes me lie down in green pastures.” (Psalm 23:1)
  • “But Ruth said, ‘Do not urge me to leave you or turn back from following you; for where you go I will go, and where you lodge I will lodge. Your people shall be my people, and your God my God.'” (Ruth 1:16-17)

Numbers 20:16

You shall beget sons and daughters, but you shall not enjoy them; for they will go into captivity.

You shall build a house, but you will not dwell in it; you shall plant a vineyard, but you will not enjoy its fruits. Your oxen and donkeys that work the soil shall be plundered by foreign nations during your lifetime. Your flocks of sheep and goats will be taken away from you by force by fierce enemies;

your fields and all your property will be laid waste before the eyes of your enemies.’

‘But after I have passed by,’ says the LORD, ‘I will return and take care of you on behalf of Myself.'”

Judges 6:12, Judges 2:1-4, 9:23

Angels are everywhere, and they’re powerful.

  • “The angel of the LORD went up from Gilgal to Bochim.” (Judges 2:1)
  • “There were in Israel eight hundred thousand men who drew the sword, who were able to go to war.” (Judges 5:8)
  • “God’s angel stood in the path of the Israelites so that they could not proceed any further” until they had slaughtered their enemies. (Judges 2:2-3)
  • “I will send my messenger ahead of you,” God said through his prophet Isaiah, “to guard you along your way and bring you into the place I have prepared.” The messenger was an angel named Uriel. (Isaiah 50:4-6)

1 Samuel 29:9, Isaiah 37:36

1 Samuel 29:9

For there is no doubt that it is an evil thing to fall into the hands of the living God. For the fire of his jealousy burns among you, and he will bring your enemies as captives before you. He will also command the sky above you to rain down on you for your evil thoughts, which have led to this great wickedness in your heart; so then you will be burnt up by their fiery breath and consumed by their destructive anger.

Isaiah 37:36

You are my battle axe and weapons of war! With you I shatter nations; with you I destroy kingdoms; with you I break down gates!

I Chronicles 21:12

12 In Jerusalem also the dedication of this house of God was celebrated with great splendor for seven days, with songs and lyres and harps and lutes. And when Haggai, the messenger of the Lord, had spoken these words to Zerubbabel, the son of Shealtiel, governor of Judah; and to Joshua, son of Jehozadak, high priest; he took off his priestly garments in which he had been clothed under Joshua who had been ministering in them before him. He laid them aside at that time in his own house

Daniel 6, Daniel 7, Daniel 8, Daniel 10, Daniel 12

  • Daniel 6, Daniel 7, Daniel 8, Daniel 10, and Daniel 12 are all about angels. They’re all in the Bible.
  • The first angel is Gabriel! He’s an archangel who stands by God’s throne and gives messages from God to people like you and me.
  • The second angel is Michael! He is an archangel who fights for good against evil and wins most battles against Satan! He protects us from demons too because he is so strong!

Zechariah 1, Zechariah 5

Zechariah 1:8

“I saw by night, and behold, a man riding upon a red horse.”

And having turned I saw seven golden lampstands, and in the midst of the lampstands One like unto the Son of Man, clothed with a garment down to His feet and girded about His chest with a golden band. His head and hair were white like wool; as white as snow; and His eyes were like flames of fire; His feet were like burnished brass refined in a furnace; and His voice was as the sound of many waters.”

Matthew 18:10, Matthew 28:2-5, Mark 1:13

  • Matthew 18:10

The Bible says in Matthew 18:10, “See that you do not despise one of these little ones; for I say to you that their angels in heaven always look upon the face of my heavenly Father.”

  • Matthew 28:2-5

The Bible says in Matthew 28:2-5, “Now Mary Magdalene and the other Mary went to see the tomb. And behold, there was a great earthquake; for an angel of the Lord descended from heaven and came and rolled back the stone from the door, and sat on it. His countenance was like lightning, and his clothing white as snow. And for fear of him the guards trembled and became like dead men.”

  • Mark 1:13

The Bible says in Mark 1:13, “And he preached saying: ‘Repent ye! The Kingdom of Heaven is at hand!’

Luke 1-2, Luke 4, Luke 12-13, Luke 4

Luke 1-2

Luke 4

Luke 12-13

The Gospel of Luke is the third book in the New Testament, and it’s written by a man named Luke. He was a companion of Paul and was also a doctor, so he had many opportunities to talk about his Christian faith.

Acts 1-5

Acts 1:1-5

1 The first account of Jesus’ life was written by Matthew, Mark wrote the second, Luke wrote the third, and John was the fourth.

2 With this in mind, Mark began his gospel with these words: “This is the beginning of God’s Good News.”

3 As they were going around teaching people and preaching good news about Jesus Christ (the Messiah), Peter and John were arrested by some priests and taken before a council of high priests who were not part of the original 12 disciples. They said to Peter and John: “Since you are also Jews like us, why do you go against our law? By what authority do you teach people that we should let them go free from paying taxes?” 4 At this point Peter began to speak up for himself and for John as well 5 Then he told them how God had given them new birth through baptism into Christ even though they used to follow Moses’ teachings when they lived under a system that kept them slaves without freedom….

Romans 8 , Hebrews 1, Hebrews 11-12 , Hebrews 13 , James 2 , Revelation 5-7 , Revelation 20 , Jude 1 , 2 Peter 2

Romans 8:26-27

Therefore, the Holy Spirit produces in you the desire for sanctification. This is because God’s love has been poured out into our hearts by the Holy Spirit that was given to us. For this reason, we can be confident that we will live forever with God and share in his glory.

Hebrews 1:14

The angels are spirits who serve God and obey his commands. The Scriptures tell us they are very powerful and can move mountains at God’s word (1 Corinthians 6:3). Their role as messengers between heaven and earth makes them very important in Scripture—and also means they need to be studied carefully! The Bible mentions many types of angels by name; among these are Michael (Daniel 10), Gabriel (Luke 1), Raphael (Tobit 12), Uriel (Ezekiel 28) and Abaddon or Apollyon from Revelation 9 . Some people believe there are different orders within the angelic realm such as archangels, cherubim and seraphim . However it seems clear from Scripture that all angels have wings but only some are described as having six wings (such as Ezekiel 1 ).

As we saw above, there are many verses in the Bible that talk about angels. But what do these verses tell us about them? First of all, they show us how powerful God is. He created the angels and all other things around us, so he can do whatever He wants with them! Second of
