30 Fascinating Facts About Angels in the Bible
Angels are mentioned 273 times in the Bible. Although we won't look at every instance, this study will offer a comprehensive look at what the Bible says about these fascinating creatures.
1 - Angels were created by God.
In the second chapter of the Bible, we are told that God created the heavens and the earth, and everything in them. The Bible indicates that angels were created at the same time the earth was formed, even before human life was created.
Thus the heavens and the earth, and all the host of them, were finished. (Genesis 2:1, NKJV)
For by him all things were created: things in heaven and on earth, visible and invisible, whether thrones or powers or rulers or authorities; all things were created by him and for him. (Colossians 1:16, NIV)
2 - Angels were created to live for eternity.
Scripture tells us that angels do not experience death.
...nor can they die anymore, for they are equal to the angels and are sons of God, being sons of the resurrection. (Luke 20:36, NKJV)
Each of the four living creatures had six wings and was covered with eyes all around, even under his wings. Day and night they never stop saying: "Holy, holy, holy is the Lord God Almighty, who was, and is, and is to come." (Revelation 4:8, NIV)
3 - Angels were present when God created the world.
When God created the foundations of the earth, the angels had already been in existence.
Then the LORD answered Job out of the storm. He said: "...Where were you when I laid the earth's foundation? ...while the morning stars sang together and all the angels shouted for joy?" (Job 38:1-7, NIV)
4 - Angels do not marry.
In heaven, men and women will be like the angels, who do not marry or reproduce.
At the resurrection people will neither marry nor be given in marriage; they will be like the angels in heaven. (Matthew 22:30, NIV)
5 - Angels are wise and intelligent.
Angels can discern good and evil and give insight and understanding.
Your maidservant said, ‘The word of my lord the king will now be comforting; for as the angel of God, so is my lord the king in discerning good and evil. And may the LORD your God be with you.’ (2 Samuel 14:17, NKJV)
He instructed me and said to me, "Daniel, I have now come to give you insight and understanding." (Daniel 9:22, NIV)
6 - Angels take an interest in the affairs of men.
Angels have been and will forever be involved and interested in what is happening in the lives of human beings.
"Now I have come to explain to you what will happen to your people in the future, for the vision concerns a time yet to come." (Daniel 10:14, NIV)
"Likewise, I say to you, there is joy in the presence of the angels of God over one sinner who repents." (Luke 15:10, NKJV)
7 - Angels are faster than men.
Angels seem to have the ability to fly.
... while I was still in prayer, Gabriel, the man I had seen in the earlier vision, came to me in swift flight about the time of the evening sacrifice. (Daniel 9:21, NIV)
And I saw another angel flying through the sky, carrying the eternal Good News to proclaim to the people who belong to this world—to every nation, tribe, language, and people. (Revelation 14:6, NLT)
8 - Angels are spiritual beings.
As spirit beings, angels do not have true physical bodies.
Who makes His angels spirits, His ministers a flame of fire. (Psalm 104:4, NKJV)
9 - Angels are not meant to be worshiped.
Whenever angels are mistaken for God by humans and worshiped in the Bible, they are told not to do this.
And I fell at his feet to worship him. But he said to me, “See that you do not do that! I am your fellow servant, and of your brethren who have the testimony of Jesus. Worship God! For the testimony of Jesus is the spirit of prophecy.” (Revelation 19:10, NKJV)
10 - Angels are subject to Christ.
Angels are Christ's servants.
... who has gone into heaven and is at the right hand of God,angels and authorities and powers having been made subject to Him. (1 Peter 3:22, NKJV)
11 - Angels have a will.
Angels have the ability to exercise their own will.
How you have fallen from heaven,
O morning star, son of the dawn!
You have been cast down to the earth,
you who once laid low the nations!
You said in your heart,
"I will ascend to heaven;
I will raise my throne
above the stars of God;
I will sit enthroned on the mount of assembly,
on the utmost heights of the sacred mountain.
I will ascend above the tops of the clouds;
I will make myself like the Most High." (Isaiah 14:12-14, NIV)
And the angels who did not keep their positions of authority but abandoned their own home—these he has kept in darkness, bound with everlasting chains for judgment on the great Day. (Jude 1:6, NIV)
12 - Angels express emotions like joy and longing.
Angels shout for joy, feel longing, and show many emotions in the Bible.
... while the morning stars sang together and all the angels shouted for joy? (Job 38:7, NIV)
It was revealed to them that they were not serving themselves but you, when they spoke of the things that have now been told you by those who have preached the gospel to you by the Holy Spiritsent from heaven. Even angels long to look into these things. (1 Peter 1:12, NIV)
13 - Angels are not omnipresent, omnipotent, or omniscient.
Angels have certain limitations. They are not all-knowing, all-powerful, and everywhere present.
Then he continued, "Do not be afraid, Daniel. Since the first day that you set your mind to gain understanding and to humble yourself before your God, your words were heard, and I have come in response to them. But the prince of the Persian kingdom resisted me twenty-one days. Then Michael, one of the chief princes, came to help me, because I was detained there with the king of Persia. (Daniel 10:12-13, NIV)
But even the archangel Michael, when he was disputing with the devil about the body of Moses, did not dare to bring a slanderous accusation against him, but said, "The Lord rebuke you!" (Jude 1:9, NIV)
14 - Angels are too numerous to count.
The Bible indicates that an incalculable number of angels exist.
The chariots of God are tens of thousands and thousands of thousands ... (Psalm 68:17, NIV)
But you have come to Mount Zion, to the heavenly Jerusalem, the city of the living God. You have come to thousands upon thousands of angels in joyful assembly ... (Hebrews 12:22, NIV)
15 - Most angels remained faithful to God.
While some angels rebelled against God, the vast majority stayed faithful to him.
Then I looked and heard the voice of many angels, numbering thousands upon thousands, and ten thousand times ten thousand. They encircled the throne and the living creatures and the elders. In a loud voice they sang: "Worthy is the Lamb, who was slain, to receive power and wealth and wisdom and strength and honor and glory and praise!" (Revelation 5:11-12, NIV)
16 - Three angels have names in the Bible.
Only three angels are mentioned by name in the canonical booksof the Bible: Gabriel, Michael, and the fallen angel Lucifer, or Satan.
Daniel 8:16 Luke 1:19 Luke 1:26
17 - Only one angel in the Bible is called an Archangel.
Michael is the only angel to be called an archangel in the Bible. He is described as "one of the chief princes," so it is possible that there are other archangels, but we cannot be sure. The word "archangel" comes from the Greek word "archangelos" meaning "a chief angel." It refers to an angel ranked highest or in charge of other angels.
Daniel 10:13 Daniel 12:1 Jude 9 Revelation 12:7

Embracing the Body- Body Acceptance and Appreciation as I learned from Sunny Dawn Johnston, my amazing mentor, teacher. You can find her at www.sunnydawnjohnston.com
Today, let’s discuss the mind, body, spirit connection of the physical body. How does the mind affect the body? What happens with your spirit and how can you get into alignment so that you are honouring all aspects of your self.
We are spiritual beings in a physical body. The body is our temple. When we ignore the signs or symptoms the body is giving us we manifest dis-ease in the body. My belief and experience is that when we push emotions down and we don’t honour our self, when we feel emotions and we don’t acknowledge pain, anger, frustration or sadness then this energy is held and lives in the body. I learned this the hard way, by manifesting stage three peritoneal cancer. Anger, sadness, rage and pain manifest as diseases such as cancer when we do not release in a healthy manner. I now believe when we are in alignment we won’t get sick or experience disease. When we are out of alignment that is when we are worn down, our immunity is low and so we can pick up bacterial infections and viruses. A healthy body does not manifest disease.
I have learned to listen to my body. When I get a sore throat, I know that I need to speak up. I listened to when my knees are sore and I learned that meant I was feeling out of control. So now when my body speaks to me I listen and do the emotional work behind the symptoms. I ask myself “what messages am I receiving and what do I need to do to move this energy out?” I have a mentor who helps me when I feel stuck. Sometimes the energy is too much to move on your own.
A very important tool I have discovered is the Inna Segal book “ The Secret Language of Your Body.”
It is a great resource to add to your library when you want to know what the emotions are behind the symptoms you are experiencing.
It is also a tool to add for your holistic or energy healing practice.
The mind is a powerful tool. Replace that stinkin thinkin or monkey brain with a positive dialogue. What is your mind saying to your body? What emotions are you eating your food with? The body listens to what the mind says. Pay attention and change your language and thoughts to gentle kind, loving words. The body will respond. The body hears everything you think!
Affirmations are very important. Say them until they feel true to you. Some examples are:
I accept health and healing now.
I accept health into my body.
I see myself living in perfect health.
I am open to releasing unhealthy behaviours.
I release my body to find its perfect weight whatever it may be.
I am attracting people and information that helps me live a healthy balanced life.
Say these whenever you get time. Use bathroom breaks to say them or write them down. Sunny taught me to put alarms on my phone with affirmations. It works!
When you change the messages in your head the body will follow.
For the spirit part of talking to your body, do a daily gratitude, thanking every part of your body for carrying you to today on this amazing journey we call life. You have the power to heal anything you may have manifested.
Ask yourself these questions.:
Has your body fought off infection?
Healed a bruise?
Run a marathon?
Created another human?
Given you pleasure?
Learned a new skill?
This is the time to love your body! Give your body the appreciation it deserves. That is how healing happens. Love your body! That is how the healing happens. You have the power to heal your body. You may need to learn a new tool and I certainly can help you with that through an angel card reading or mentoring call. You can contact me at email@example.com to book.
Last year, I put me first and began my yoga journey at Joy and Vitality Centre is Quarry Park in Calgary. I love their healing centre. I love the teachers. I love everything about it. If you want to join me in a class, please contact me.
I hope to see you there!
This week on the blog, we discuss "Giving & Receiving". As someone who used to be a way better giver, I had to learn how to receive. I will never forget when my mentor Sunny Dawn Johnston told me my receiver was broken. I didn't even know what that meant. I had to learn that the entire Universe works in cycles much like breathing...in (inhalations) and out (exhalations)! When you only give (inhale) or only receive (exhale) you become out of rhythm. For optimum joy, vitality, health and energy, we must find the balance in our giving and receiving.
The angels say when your balance is out of whack, we must pay attention. We may feel that others are taking advantage of us and our kindness when we give too much. If your imbalance is in receiving you may feel guilty.
There is no perfect balance, it is harmony that the angels say to strive for.
To do this, make sure you give something away, such as money, a gift, time, compliments or other form of energy on a daily basis, without expecting anything in return. On the same day, be a great receiver of gifts, compliments, help or other offers. Say THANK YOU. If you are in a relationship where you do most of the giving, then express your needs, wants and desires, and be open to receive them.
To receive we must give and vice versa. Affirm: I now receive my blessings with grace and ease into my life, amen and so it is.
The angels are always providing amazing advice. If I can be of service for your angel card reading, then please contact me. They can be done by phone, email, video and in person.
I send you all so much love. I would love to hear what you think of the blog.

Happy World Goddess Day!
The Goddess is a very important part of my daily life. Goddesses haven't always been a part of my daily spiritual routine, however, when I was healing from cancer, I had to do something different. I knew that there were parts of me that were so wounded that if I didn't dig them up and heal them, I would continue to bleed out onto people who didn't wound me. What that means is that I was a reactionary mess. I needed to learn how to respond better or I would continually manifest drama in my life.
I was in my reiki level 2 class with a teacher who had the Goddess Morrigan
( Inner Knowing) and the Goddess Nemetona (Insight) canvases with us. I fell in love with their energies. Funny story: I had taken photos of our event and posted them, however they weren't yet to be shared with the world and Velva Dawn graciously asked me to remove them until she launched them with the new deck. The deck is called "Awakening of the Divine Oracle Deck" by Velva Dawn Silver. You can find it on www.velvadawn.com.
That began my journey with the Goddess. I didn't know a lot about the Goddesses and being a God girl, I questioned whether I was crossing boundaries religiously. I came to the conclusion that God is in all energies and that this was my journey. I needed the help of the Goddess to heal my internal wounds. I wanted to find that part of me that was meant to rise.
I had just walked through a very painful job situation after the stage three cancer diagnosis and treatment. My son had also manifested epilepsy. My life the way I knew it was over!! I was broke and broken. The Goddess helped me find the strength to get up each day. She forced me to rise. I loved that I had the support of God, Goddess and angels each day. I thanked God for illuminating my path with these Divine Feminine power houses. Mother Mary helped me with self-love. Isis helped me with balance, Abundantia helped me with trust, Diana helped me with manifestation, Kuan Yin helped me with compassion, Kali helped with honouring cycles of my life etc. Each Goddess, and there are 45 in Velva's deck, helped me with a specific area in my life that I needed healing. I continue to ask them in each day. Even though I am an angel lady, I am a Goddess girl too!
What does the word Goddess mean to you? Perhaps journal on that.
How do you feel right now? If you are feeling like crap, the way I did, then perhaps it is time to RISE SISTER and take a Goddesses hand. You can talk to me. I will tell it to you straight. Perhaps you want to find out more by attending our Goddess Gathering at Joy and Vitality Centre on Sept 28th? or Our Goddess Healing Matrix System- Higher Priestess Practitioner (TM) Shine Event on October 12? Let me know - I can provide all the details.
I will post the links below. Let me know. I am happy to be of service for your angel/goddess/coaching firstname.lastname@example.org
Happy Goddess day to all!!
