They are bad dudes not babies with wings on clouds.
They are not effeminate creatures.
They appear as fire, and other supernatural descriptions capable able of great warfare.
Revelation 12:7 says "And there was war in heaven, Michael and his angels waging war with the dragon. The dragon and his angels waged war," Yes the good angels won.
In 2 Kings 19:35 "Then it happened that night that the angel of the Lord went out and struck 185,000 in the camp of the Assyrians; and when men rose early in the morning, behold, all of them were dead."
That is right. One angel in one night dusted 185,000 of the enemies of God's people.
At the birth of Christ when the Heavenly Host of angels came to the shepherds on the hill this is what was said Luke 2:10 "But the angel said to them, "Do not be afraid; for behold, I bring you good news of great joy which will be for all the people;" They angels were not there only to spread the message. The shepherds had to be comforted and calmed down to hear the good news in their realistic fear.
The shepherds had every reason to be "sore afraid". These warrior angels were life takers. Don't you know that Yaweh Himself had the greatest security detail ever sent as His Son, The Lord of Glory, The King of Kings, the Author Of Our Salvation was entering in to the world, birthed and incarnated to reclaim His world and implement salvation over the power of sin? All the powers of evil clamored for the death of this child.
So please stop thinking about flying babies, effeminate harp players when
you think of angels.
The Bible warrior angel is the kind I want my King to send in our distress and when loved ones and myself are in harms way.
Thank you Lord in your providence for the ministry of angels.
