    This study guide examines some of the interesting and profound verses that give insight into these invisible servants of God, who serve “those who will inherit salvation”.

    Angels impact the world in ways we can’t begin to imagine. Angels can also affect your life. The Scriptures have much to tell us on this fascinating subject.

    What's in the Guide

    Chapter 1
    Image is not available

    Angels have long been popular in our culture. People hold many ideas about them. But are those ideas accurate? Do they agree with what the Bible reveals?

    Chapter 2
    Image is not available

    Where did angels come from? How long have these spirit beings existed? Do they have freedom of choice? Let’s look in the Bible to discover the answers.

    Chapter 3
    Image is not available

    How many angels are there? What does it mean when Scripture refers to God as “the Lord of hosts”? Does the Bible tell us how many angels exist?

    CHAPTER 4
    Image is not available

    Sometimes people want to give angels extra credit. It’s as if people want their own angel to lift them from adversity or to do their own bidding in personal affairs. They often look to angelic aid without ever calling on God for help. Some people look to angels almost as their own personal genies.

    CHAPTER 5
    Image is not available

    What do angels look like? Many people think they look like babies or infants, only with wings. But what does God’s Word really say about their appearance?

    CHAPTER 6
    Image is not available

    Some have taught that a set of scriptures in Genesis 6 refers to fallen angels interbreeding with human women to produce half-demon giants. But there’s a more rational explanation.

    CHAPTER 7
    Image is not available

    People have a number of ideas about angels that do not accurately reflect what we see revealed in Scripture.

    CHAPTER 8
    Image is not available

    Perhaps one of the oddest depictions of angels is as winged infants, these being referred to as cherubs.

    CHAPTER 9
    Image is not available

    The Bible mentions two angels by name—Michael and Gabriel. What the Bible reveals about them tells us a great deal about the unseen spirit world.

    CHAPTER 10
    Image is not available

    Sometime after the world was formed, the peaceful harmony in the angelic realm dramatically changed.

    CHAPTER 11
    Image is not available

    Of the many Old Testament references to angels of God, there are a few where One called “the Angel of the Lord” is also identified as “the Lord” (Genesis 16:10-13; Genesis 22:11-12; Exodus 3:2-6; Judges 13:3-22). But how can an angel of God be God Himself? This is evidently the same figure referred to as “the Angel of His Presence” in Isaiah 63:9, as well as the “Angel” God sent to lead the Israelites through the wilderness to the Promised Land (Exodus 14:19; Exodus 23:20).

    CHAPTER 12
    Image is not available

    Are all angels alike? Scripture reveals several different kinds of angels, including cherubim, seraphim and several other kinds of spirit beings. What are they like?

    CHAPTER 13
    Image is not available

    The derivation of the Hebrew word cherub (keroob or krub), referring to a kind of angel, is uncertain. Some have proposed that it simply means “figure.” Others have said it comes from a root meaning “mix,” in reference to combined features. Still others look to similar ancient terms. The Akkadian word karibu, which some say refers to intercessory beings and statues of such, seems related to the Assyrian word karabu, meaning “great” or “mighty,” and a similar Babylonian term meaning “propitious.”

    CHAPTER 14
    Image is not available

    Why did God create the angelic spirit world? What is their purpose? What responsibilities do they hold? Let’s see the answers as revealed in Scripture.

    CHAPTER 15
    Image is not available

    A common misconception is that when people die (and especially infants), they go to heaven and become angels. Yet angels have existed far longer than people have, being present at the creation of the earth (Job 38:7).

    CHAPTER 16
    Image is not available

    Many people have reported experiences that seemed to involve angelic help. Here we relay the personal stories of some who have had angelic encounters.

    CHAPTER 17
    Image is not available

    Angels are not fable or myth. God created these beings for a specific purpose —a purpose that involves you. The truth is fascinating and encouraging!

    • Does God Exist?

      Does God Exist?

      STUDY GUIDE

      Is this life all there is, or is there something more? If there is something more, how should awareness of that something impact your life? Why are we here? Is there a purpose for our lives? What is our destiny, and is that destiny inextricably linked with the existence of God? We can find the answers to these questions.

      Heaven & Hell

      STUDY GUIDE

      Vast numbers of the world's population down through the ages have never had the opportunity to genuinely repent and accept Christ simply because of where they live. Would it be just and right for God to subject them to the same punishment He will give to those who reject Him and make themselves His enemies?

    • The Problem With Evolution and the Return of God

      The Problem With Evolution and the Return of God

      In the 160 years that have passed since the publication of Charles Darwin’s book On the Evolution of Species , the theory of Darwinian evolution has dominated science and education. But new explorations in scientific study are exposing more and more flaws in the theory—and indeed showing it is an impossibility! In this issue of Beyond Today magazine, we cover some of the major problems with Darwinian evolution—problems you’ll seldom see discussed elsewhere.
