Good morning friends. I hope the lessons on Spiritual Warfare have helped you
become more aware that as Christians our battles are not carnal but spiritual and
satan has pulled out all the plugs. He seems to be unaware that he is already
defeated….at Calvary.

We as Christians need to understand the power of The Christ that is ‘in’ us. I am
well aware that many of you already know the things we have been studying about,
but it is always good to revive that knowledge since we are on the brink of Christ’s

The first part we will discuss angels; how they help us, protect us, and bring us
Words from the Lord. We will also understand their ranks and positions in the
heavenlys as well as their physical appearance such as proof of eyes, ears,
mouths, wings, personality and attributes. I would like this week to add a lesson on
some facts about demons and angels. Facts I believe will help us to recognize his
disguises when he tries to cunningly invade our lives.
Let us get started.

As I began studying about angels and demons I found out there are all kinds of
information concerning them. There are many places we can look for information;
but the only true source is the Word of God….The Bible. Let us begin by seeing the
definition of an angel:

Strong’s Exhausted Concordance definition of
angel, in Greek (N/T) # 32 is Aggelos
meaning: One who brings tidings, messenger; angel.

Strong’s Exhausted Concordance definition of
angel, in Hebrew (O/T) # 4397 is Mal
(mal-awk’) meaning: To dispatch a deputy, a messenger especially from God,
ambassador, angel.

Angels hold different position, have different responsibilities and appearances but
they were all created by God. Let us first review some faces about angels:

1) Angels can speak:
Genesis 16:7-9: Now the Angel of the LORD found her by a
spring of water in the wilderness, by the spring on the way to Shur. And
He said,
“Hagar, Sarai’s maid, where have you come from, and where are you going?” She
said, “I am fleeing from the presence of my mistress Sarai.”
The Angel of the LORD
said to her, “Return to your mistress and submit yourself under her hand.”….

2) Angels can see: Ezekiel 10:11-12: When they went, they went toward any of their
four directions; they did not turn aside when they went, but followed in the
direction the head was facing. They did not turn aside when they went. And
whole body, with their back, their hands, their wings, and the wheels that the four
had, were
full of eyes all around. Revelation 4:6: Before the throne there was a sea
of glass, like crystal. And in the midst of the throne, and around the throne, were
living creatures full of eyes in front and in back.

3) Angels have hands: Isaiah 6:6: Then one of the seraphim flew to me, having in
his hand a live coal
which he had taken with the tongs from the altar…..Joshua 5:
13: “A man
(an Angel) stood opposite him with His sword drawn in His hand. And
Joshua went to Him and said to Him, “Are you for us or for our adversaries?” so He
(the Angel) said, “No, rather I indeed come now as captain of the host of the Lord.….”
(New American Standard bible)

4) Angels are stronger/powerful than man, never die, never fail a mission: Acts 5:19-
20: But at night
an angel of the Lord, opened the prison doors and brought them
out, and said, “Go, stand in the temple and speak to the people all the words of this
life.”….Matthew 28:2: And
behold, there was a great earthquake; for an angel of the
descended from heaven, and came and rolled back the stone from the door,
and sat on it.

5) The angels mostly seen take the form of humans: Genesis 18:2-4: “lo, three men
(Three Angels)
stood by him and when he saw them, he ran to meet them from the tent
door, and bowed himself toward the ground, and said, My lord, if now I have found
favour in thy sight, pass not away, I pray thee from thy servant:….John 20:12: And
she saw
two angels in white sitting, one at the head and the other at the feet,
where the body of Jesus had lain.

6) Angels have feet; they eat: Genesis 18:3-4,8: ….and said, “My Lord, if I have now
found favor in Your sight, do not pass on by Your servant. Please let a l
ittle water
be brought and wash your feet
, and rest yourselves under the tree….so he took
butter and milk and the calf which he had prepared, and set it before them; and
stood by them under the tree as they ate
….Isaiah 6:2: Above it stood seraphim;
each one had six
wings; with two he covered his face, with two he covered his
, and with two he flew.

7) Angels have limited knowledge and revelation; also given wisdom: Mark 13:32:
“But of that day and hour no one
knows, not even the angels in heaven, nor the
Son, but only the Father….”….I Peter 1:12:
To them it was revealed that, not to
themselves, but to us they were ministering the things which now have been
reported to you through those who have preached the gospel to you
by the Holy
Spirit sent from heaven-things which angels desire to look into
…..“II Samuel 14:20;
“to bring about this change of affairs your servant Joab has done this thing; but my
lord is wise, according to the
wisdom of the angel of God, to know everything that
is in the earth.”

8) Angels rejoice: Luke 15:10: Likewise, I say to you, there is joy in the presence of
the angels of God over one sinner who repents.”

9) Angels have a language of their own: I Corinthians 13:1: Though I speak with the
tongues of men and of angels,
but have not love I have become sounding brass or
a clanging cymbal.

10) Angels appear visible and invisible: Genesis 19:1: Now the two angels came to
in the evening, and Lot was sitting in the gate of Sodom. When Lot saw
them, he rose to meet then, and he bowed himself
with his face toward the
ground….Hebrews 13:2:
Do not forget to entertain strangers, for by so doing some
have unwittingly entertained angels.

11) Angels are swift travelers and obedient: Ezekiel 1:14: And the living creatures
ran back and forth, in appearance
like a flash of lightning….Psalm 103:20: Bless the
LORD, you His angels, who excel in strength, who do His word, heeding the voice
of His word.

12) Angels visit earth but live in heaven; continually worshipping God: II Chronicles
18:18:….I saw
the LORD sitting on His throne, and ‘all’ the host of heaven standing
on His right hand and His left….Isaiah 6:3: And one cried to another and said: Holy,
holy, holy is the LORD of hosts
; the whole earth is full of His glory!”

There are five (5) different kinds of angels spoken of in the Bible. Let us see who
they are and what their functions are:

Strong’s Exhausted Concordance Hebrew word #8314 is Seraph (seh-rah-feem)
meaning: Burning, fiery, burning ones.

Isaiah describes them as having six wings; with two they covered their face
not look upon the Glory of the Father)
, with two they covered their feet (In humility, submission),
and with two they flew (Obeyed God’s commands). Also notice they flew above/over the
throne of God. Their function was to cry out the holiness and awesomeness of God;
His glory and wonders He has done.

Seraphim are plural for Seraph which tells us there was several, probably many
‘Holy, holy, holy is the LORD of hosts; the whole earth is full of His glory!’ The
Hebrew word for holy
(Strong’s Exhausted Concordance # 6918 Qadowsh (kaw-doshe’) means:
To set apart, unapproachable this was because of His majestic holiness; however,
there can be a relationship because of Jesus Christ His only Begotten Son, our
Redeemer and Lord.  

Romans 8:34: Who is he who condemns? It is Christ who died, and furthermore is
also risen, who is even at the right hand of God, who also makes intercession for

I Timothy 2:5-6: For there is one God and one Mediator between God and men, the
Man Christ Jesus, who gave Himself a ransom for all, to be testified in due time,….

I John 2:1: My little children, these things I write to you, so that you may not sin. And
if anyone sins, we have an Advocate with the Father, Jesus Christ the righteous.
And He Himself is the propitiation for our sins, and not for ours only but also for the
whole world.

We also learned that their appearance is like a fiery flame; they have a mouth to
One said, “Behold, this has touched your lips; your iniquity is taken away,
and your sin purged.”
This did not mean they had power to forgive, but that was the
message from God.
They have hands because one took a ‘live’ coal from the altar,
which he took with tongs:
….having is his hand a live coal…. They have feet which
they covered with two he covered his feet, and
they have wings; with two he flew.
Not much else is known about them accept they protected the throne from above.

Strong’s Exhausted Concordance Hebrew word for Cherubim
(Strong’s Exhausted
Concordance #3742 is Kruwb (ker-oob’
) means: A cherubim, an imaginary figure, plural for

Wow! What a description; nothing like what we usually think an angel looks like
huh? In this Scripture
Ezekiel, not knowing or have ever seen anything like them;
though he knew they were alive, called them ‘living creatures’; later he calls them
cherubim (Ezekiel 10:20-21: this is the living creature I saw under the God of Israel
by the River Chebar, and I knew they were cherubim. Each one had four faces and
each one four wings and the likeness of the hands of a man was under their wings.
And the likeness of their faces was the same as the faces which I had seen by the
river Chebar, their appearance and their persons. They each went straight forward.

Let us discuss more about their appearance and what they represented:

2)CHERUBIM:    Ezekiel 1:4-14: Then I looked, and behold, a whirlwind was coming
out of the north, a great cloud with raging fire engulfing itself; and rightness was
all around it and radiating out of its midst like
the color of amber, out of the midst
of the fire. Also from within it came the likeness of four living creatures.  And this
was their appearance; they had the likeness
of a man. ‘Each’ one had four faces,
and each one had
four wings. Their legs were straight, and the soles of their feet
were like the soles of calves’ feet
. They sparkled like the color of burnished
bronze. The
hands of a man were under their wings on their four sides, and each of
the four had faces and wings.
Their wings touched one another. The creatures did
not turn
when they went, but each one went straight forward. As for the likeness of
their faces,
each had the face of a man;(Man in perfection) each of the four had the
face of a lion (King of all kings) on the right side, each of the four had the face of an ox
on the left side, and each of the four had the face of an eagle (Deity).
Thus were their faces.
Their wings stretched upward; two wings of each one
touched one another, and two covered their bodies.
And each one went straight
forward; they went wherever the spirit wanted to go
, and they did not turn when
they went. As for the likeness of the living creatures, their appearance was like
burning coals of fire, like the appearance of torches going back and forth among
the living creatures. The fire was bright, and out of the fire went lightning. And the
living creatures ran back and forth, in appearance like a flash of lightning.

saw the Lord sitting on a throne, high and lifted up, and the
train of His robe filled the temple. Above it stood seraphim;
each one had six wings; with two he covered his face, with
two he covered his feet, and with two he flew. And one cried
to another and said: “Holy, holy, holy is the LORD of hosts;
the whole earth is full of His glory!”
