1. Cherubim – Cherubim are mentioned in several places throughout Scripture:
- They guarded the entrance to the Garden of Eden (Genesis 3:24).
- God is enthroned above them (Ezekiel 10:1–22).
- God is said to be riding rides on Cherubs in (Psalm 18:10)
- Two golden figures of cherubim sit above the Ark of the Covenant, where God promised to dwell among his people (Exodus 25:22, 18–21).

2. Seraphim – Mentioned only once in the Bible: They appear in
Isaiah 6:2–7, where they continually worship the Lord and say, “Holy, holy, holy is the Lord of hosts; the whole earth is full of his glory”

3. “Living Creatures” – These are heavenly beings around God’s throne (Ezekiel 1:5–14, Revelation 4:6–8) and appear in numerous forms worshiping God.

4. Messengers – There are angelic messengers spoken of in Scripture: These are who we will focus on today: The Bible reveals only two angels names in the Bible: The archangel Michael and Gabriel who stands in the presence of the Lord.
I. Who are They?

A. They are spirits.
B. They are from a Different Realm: A spirit realm.

Number 22:31 Shows us that humans cannot see Angels unless God opens their eyes so they can see Angels.

- Sometimes, Angels do take human form, like in Luke 1:26-38

- Video - Gabriel Visits Mary
II. They are Messengers!

A. God Often sends out Angels to bring messages to people.

Like Daniel
To Zechariah and to Mary.

Luke 1:19; 26-27

Angels serve as God's Messenger:

- Daniel (chapters 8 & 9)
- Mary (Luke 1)
- Zechariah (Luke 1)
- Philip (Acts 8)
- Cornelius (Acts 10)
- Paul (Acts 27)
B. God announces Jesus Birth and Return by Angels

- Video - (Angels announce Jesus Birth to Shepherds)

- When Christ returns, an archangel will proclaim His coming
(1 Thessalonians 4:16)
III. Join Them as Messengers.

A. God is Calling us to Join them...

When we die, we do not become Angels, we become like Christ.
1 John 3:2
Jesus was "a little lower than the angels"(Hebrews 2:7) when He came in human form; this is what is like for us now, but one day, when we become like Christ, we will rule the Kingdom of God with Jesus.
B. Our Duty and Reward:

Daniel 12:1-3
This is our "Blessed Hope" if we are wise and follow Jesus! We must "put on the LORD Jesus Christ" daily. WE must bare His message. "I am not ashamed of the Gospel of Jesus Christ, for It is the Power of God unto Salvation..."

Those who bare His message, Join the Angels duty, will be those who lead others to Righteousness: Jesus Himself, and will shine like the Stars forever! Wow!
Children of the Resurrection:

Jesus is the Resurrection and the LIFE!
