ANSWER #11 of 46

CONTRARY to what many believe, angels are not the departed souls of humans who have died. The Bible plainly states that the dead "are conscious of nothing at all." (Ecclesiastes 9:5) Where, then, did the angels come from? The Bible indicates that they were individually created by God before the founding of the earth. (Job 38:4-7) The size of God's heavenly family may be hundreds of millions, perhaps billions or more! Some angels joined Satan in his rebellion.—Daniel 7:10; Revelation 5:11; 12:7-9.

Since Jehovah is a God of order, it is not surprising that his vast angelic family is organized.—1 Corinthians 14:33.

ANSWER #24 of 46

There is no evidence or any verification of the existence of angels. They are fantasies with roots in ancient human mythology.


ANSWER #25 of 46

personally, the bible can plainly state whatever it wants, but there a no proven facts to suggest angels are real


ANSWER #26 of 46

Depends on your religion. Angels are depicted one way in the christian bible, and seperate in others. Also different in modern day. The problem with the bible statement is this "The size of God's heavenly family may be hundreds of millions, perhaps billions or more!" Does not state they are not human souls. It states that they were created by god, which if you believe in that domination, you believe we are all made by god in his image. So it doesn't actually deter rather it is or is not. I personally believe that guardians exist. Those of spirits who passed or are yet to be born who watch over those of loved ones. Parents watch over there children as they grow, when parents pass they watch there children, as well as there unborn grandchildren. Its a cycle, thats why we should all make the effort of love and peace. This is why some children are born knowing great grandmothers that they can point out in pictures but were never alive to actually meet.


ANSWER #27 of 46

Two angels helped righteous Lot and his daughters to survive the destruction of the wicked cities of Sodom and Gomorrah by escorting them out of that area. (Genesis 19:1, 15-26) Centuries later, even though the prophet Daniel was thrown into a lions’ pit, he was not harmed. Why? “My own God sent his angel and shut the mouth of the lions,” he declared. (Daniel 6:22) Angels supported Jesus at the start of his earthly ministry. (Mark 1:13) And shortly before Jesus’ death, an angel appeared to him and “strengthened him.” (Luke 22:43) What a blessing that angelic support must have been for Jesus at those crucial times in his life! An angel also freed the apostle Peter from prison.—Acts 12:6-11.


ANSWER #28 of 46

the Bible states that the dead "are conscious of nothing at all." (Ecclesiastes 9:5) It also says that when a person dies, "in that day his thoughts do perish." (Psalm 146:4) Satan, however, is "the father of the lie." (John 8:44) He is the one who originated the falsehood that the human soul survives death. (Compare Ezekiel 18:4.) Many people today believe this, which suits Satan's purpose, for it negates the need for faith in the resurrection—a fundamental doctrine of Christianity. (John 5:28, 29) So, inquiring of the dead or seemingly receiving messages from them is yet another facet of the angel movement that is not approved by God.
It should not surprise us that the Devil can make divination appear beneficial, even angelic. The Bible says that Satan "keeps transforming himself into an angel of light." (2 Corinthians 11:14) He can even fabricate portents and then make them come true, deceiving onlookers into thinking that the omen is from God. (Compare Matthew 7:21-23; 2 Thessalonians 2:9-12.) But all of Satan's works—no matter how virtuous or how sinister they may appear—serve one of two purposes: to turn people against Jehovah or simply to blind their minds so that 'the illumination of the glorious good news about the Christ might not shine through.' (2 Corinthians 4:3, 4) This latter method of deception is often the most effective.


ANSWER #29 of 46

Yeah...the Bible cleary states that there are such beings. Angels are not physical, tho. Angels are spiritual beings, and they are fighting for our souls against demons, which are fallen angels. Satan himself is a fallen angel. Angels appeared in dreams and visions to people in the Bible, and even physically! I believe that angels may appear themselves physically in our world. Kind of like in the movie "The Bishop's Wife." Cary Grant shows up as an angel, and helps the man and family who God had sent him to. I think that God does that still today :)

ANSWER #31 of 46

Very interesting about what you said about death. "The dead are conscience of nothing at all." BLA! Why would anyone who died, go to heaven (so they say) and come back to the body, and retell it. By all medical purposes the body is dead. Why then would the person remember? The body is dead and can't remember, but the spirit isn't, and can remember. How can the body remember, it's dead. The body is only a physical universe item, not the mind or spirit.

And where in the Bible does it say angels joined with Satan? I would like to know that.

What I find so interesting is there is so much Dogmatic belief that is not in the Bible, where did it come from. Such as the angels divided between God and Satan. I do know this. There are so many ideas not in the Bible that Christians believe in. Where do these things come from.

Why do Christians believe in a Heaven and Hell. Interesting in that Jesus said, "the Kingdom of Heaven is within you." Why would it be anywhere else then. If Christians believe in Jesus why would one think Heaven is "up there", and not within. It could be said, if Heaven is within us, likewise, Hell could be within us too.

I would like to ask this. If Christians believe in Heaven where did that idea come from? It certainly wasn't the Jews concept. They don't believe in Heaven or Hell, for that matter. Just because the Bible says it, or Jesus says it, isn't proof. Do you know for a fact there is a Heaven? Have you seen it, visited it, know of where it is and it's existence with out the words of the Bible. In other words is it real, by experience, for you. It isn't for me.

What then is Heaven for me. Heaven is the universe of God. Since God is all around us and through us, why wouldn't that be Heaven. We make Heaven or Hell for ourselves. Wouldn't that be more real then to say it's UP somewhere.

That universe is within ourselves. That is the only reality one has. Combined with other realities we have this universe we all see. Which is an illusion, really.

ANSWER #33 of 46

Rev 12:7 Then there was war in heaven. Michael and the angels under his command fought the dragon and his angels.


ANSWER #34 of 46

Do you think they're real? Angels can be taken as hevenly warriors of God watching over His children (The Bible), winged celestrial beings with a white robe and halo (common idea), an infant with wings (such as what those porcelain or concrete sculptures depict), those people in our lives that "lead us home when home becomes a strange place" (similar to my first suggestion, and taken from 'Good left Undone' by Rise Against), a nickname given to mean little kids by their oblivious 'disipline-is-bad' parents (we all know or knew at least one...) I personally believe in them, but its not about what i think; its not about my opinion or anyone elses. Find out for yourself, in your heart what comes to you when you think of angels? Whatever you discover will be what they are to you. God BlessXD

Hebrews 11:1-2 What is faith? It is the confident assurance that what we hope for is going to happen. It is the evidence of things we cannot yet see. God gave his approval to people in days of old because of their faith.

But angels are only servants. They are spirits sent from God to care for those who will receive salvation. Hebrews 1:14


ANSWER #40 of 46

Thanks, wtyrone I didn't even notive this answer.

For millions of humans, death is like a sleep from which they will awaken. Jesus once said to his disciples about their friend who had died: “Lazarus our friend has gone to rest, but I am journeying there to awaken him from sleep.” When Jesus was on his way to the memorial tomb, he met a crowd of mourners. On arrival at the tomb, he gave orders for it to be opened and called out: “Lazarus, come on out!” The man who had been dead for four days came out. (John 11:11-14, 39, 43, 44) Since Lazarus’ body was already decomposing, Jesus thus demonstrated that God can remember everything about the dead—their personality, their memory, and their appearance. He can make them live again. On another occasion Jesus said: “The hour is coming in which all those in the memorial tombs will hear his [that is, Jesus’] voice and come out.”—John 5:28, 29.

Providing us with further good news, the Bible states: “As the last enemy, death is to be brought to nothing.” (1 Corinthians 15:26) Never again will grief-stricken people have to go to a cemetery to bury a loved one. The Bible says: “Death will be no more.” (Revelation 21:4) Do you not agree that the Bible’s viewpoint on what
happens at death is a comforting one?

In creating the earth and the human family, Jehovah never intended that man should die. God's purpose was that humans would live on earth forever amid Paradise conditions. Adam died only because he disobeyed God's law. (Genesis 2:8, 15-17; 3:1-6; Isaiah 45:18) When the first man died, did he go to some spirit realm? No! He—the soul Adam—returned to the inanimate dust from which he was created.—Genesis 3:17-19.

THROUGHOUT history, millions of people have believed that they would eventually leave the earth and go to heaven. Some have felt that our Creator never intended that the earth should be our permanent dwelling place. Ascetics have gone even further. To many of them, the earth and all material things are evil—a barrier to real spiritual fulfillment and closeness to God.

Those who developed the foregoing ideas were either unaware of what God said on the matter of a paradise earth or chose to ignore it. Today, in fact, many show no interest in examining what God inspired men to record on this subject in his Word, the Bible. (2 Timothy 3:16, 17) But is it not wise to trust God's Word instead of adopting theories of men? (Romans 3:4) It is, in fact, vital that we do so, since the Bible warns us that a powerful but invisible evil creature has blinded people spiritually and is now "misleading the entire inhabited earth."—Revelation 12:9; 2 Corinthians 4:4.


ANSWER #41 of 46

Why in the hell would you say something like that........


ANSWER #42 of 46

no i dont beleive in god, im happy about that. and your quote seems kind of irrelevant to my post. your saying people who beleive in god beleive in spirit and "truth"...im saying i dont beleive in god and there are no proven facts to suggest angels are real, im not saying people who beleive in god DONT beleive in spirits


ANSWER #43 of 46

BLA, again. What everyone is saying is based on faith. Faith implys one has truth without believing. So one has to have faith in something without knowing it true. If one has truth, that being true for self, then one doesn't need faith. One knows. Christianity demands one to believe without knowing it's true for self. It's called "Blind Faith".

Have you ever wondered why wishes or prayer doesn't work. Where is the belief it will. So, one is to have faith it will? Where is the belief, the truth it will? When one has faith it will, is always asked. One doesn't need faith it will, one knows. That's the answer. Knowing brings about the end results of the wish or prayer. That is all. How does one know? One knows. How often have you known it will? The moment you know, it will without a doubt happen.

Christianity is so rapped up in dogma it can't explain how to know truth for self. It doesn't teach how to have truth for self. Or what truth is.

Look at it this way. God gave us self making decisions so we could create seperately from others. What we ask for we get. Our decisions bring about good or bad. What we get is what we believe in. There is no faith in that, it's all belief.


ANSWER #44 of 46

An additional word. Faith is hoping something will happen. It's not knowing it will. Belief is knowing, without a doubt, something is. In knowing one doesn't have to have faith. That is why I said above "you get what you believe in", always. You bring Good or Bad to you because you believe in it.
