God created all the angels[1] spirits,[2] immortal,[3] holy,[4] excelling in knowledge,[5] mighty in power,[6] to execute his commandments, and to praise his name,[7] yet subject to change.[8]

  2. Psa. 104:4
    he makes his messengers winds,
    his ministers a flaming fire.
  3. Matt. 22:30
    For in the resurrection they neither marry nor are given in marriage, but are like angels in heaven.
  4. Matt. 25:31

  5. II Sam. 14:17

    Matt. 24:36

    you mighty ones who do his word,
    obeying the voice of his word!
    Bless the Lord, all his hosts,
    his ministers, who do his will!
  8. II Peter 2:4
    For if God did not spare angels when they sinned, but cast them into hell and committed them to chains of gloomy darkness to be kept until the judgment...
