The Facts on Angels (Harvest House, 1995) pp. 12-13


What do good angels actually do in the Bible?


The angels who were created by God and Christ (Nehemiah 9:6; Colossians 1:16) and who did not rebel with Lucifer (Nehemiah 9:6; Colossians 1:16) exist primarily for God and Christ and thus have their lives centered on them. They worship and serve God and Christ (Philippians 2:9-11; Hebrews 1:6). They glorify and celebrate the praises of God and Christ (Job 38:7; Psalm 148:2; Isaiah 6:3; Luke 2:13,14; Revelation 5:11,12; 7:11,12). They delight to communicate the will of God and Christ, and they delight in obeying God and Christ. In all that they do, they honor God and Christ (Daniel 8:16,17; 9:21-23; 10:11; 12:6,7; Psalm 103:20; Matthew 2:13,20; 6:10; Luke 1:19,28; Acts 5:20; 8:26; 10:5; 27:23; Revelation 1:1).

They execute the purposes of God and Christ on the earth, including the governing and judging of the earth (Numbers 22:22; Psalm 103:19-21; Matthew 13:39-42; 28:2; John 5:4; Revelation 5:2; 2 Samuel 24:16; 2 Kings 19:35; Psalm 35:5,6; Acts 12:23; Revelation 16:1). For example, they were active in establishing the Mosaic law of God in the Old Testament (Acts 7:38,53; Galatians 3:19; Hebrews 2:2) and perform the judgments of Christ in the New Testament (2 Thessalonians 1:7,8; Revelation 7-9).
